This does not mean that parents have no rights to what happens to their child while they are at school but this allows school to guide student behaviors though discipline. This idea is called in loco parentis (pg. 378). This concept was once more important in schools than it is now but it has brought forth it idea that no matter the student, disabled or not, there needs to be a certain level of responsibility put on all students for their behaviors when they are at school. This would be a great chapter of the book for parents to read because it would help them to understand why the school is doing what it is doing.
| * Real discipline has teachers tell students what they are to do then have them repeat until they do it right. This helps students build a non-thinking routine. * Teachers set limits and expect students to abide by them. Students know what is expected and if there is confusion the teacher will explain but limits are not negotiable. | Weaknesses | * Listing procedures can be time consuming.
3.1 Explain how the teaching role involves working with other professionals. 3.2 Explain the boundaries between the teaching role and other professional roles. As a training officer at webs training I am required to heavily communicate with other professionals within my job role. Firstly I work with other training officers at work to produce an equal and fair education to the pupils a good example of this is if a training offices is absent one day there will be a structured lesson plans to follow so the officer that is covering can pick up the lesson plan adjust it to meet there needs and be able to provide a good lesson even if it’s not the trade area there back ground is from. Other professionals I work with are supervisors/mentors
Misbehavior is less likely to recur if a student makes a commitment to avoid the action and to engage in more desirable alternative behaviors.”(Kizlik, 2012). I believe that I have a more to learn about classroom management and policy, especially dealing with punishment and consequences. The use of praise in my classroom management style might be good. In the use and way I praise students matched the use of best practices of more seasoned professionals. I have linked praised with student performance and instruction.
The stability in the classroom is necessary to meet basic needs of students. I believe firmly that if basic human needs are not met then there is no hope for curricular learning to take place. The student needs to be comfortable to learn. To correct a behavior that is already in progress prevention can also be a method of attack. The key is to discover the antecedent and change it, remove it, or take action to create a new one.
Like I have mentioned in the previous paragraph, schools only have limited power when it comes to bullying. This is because many schools don’t always know what happens and if they are also just making it up. Most kids may do this in order to use as an excuse for lack of academic performance. It’s difficult for a school to take action if the bullied students don’t speak up. This is why I believe that it’s not the schools fault.
They should not all be expected to be proficient on the same standardized test. Teachers should be able to provide evidence that their students are making educational gains. However, tests should be based on the student’s knowledge and level of education. Many people are quick to blame the teachers and feel they should be held accountable for students not achieving proficiency. It is important to me to become more knowledgeable regarding education events so I can defend my profession.
Unlike public schools, charter schools allow parents to become more involved with their children’s school environment, teachings, and progress. One of their main goals is to improve the education system. But, a negative aspect of being a charter school is that the schools must meet their required goals, and have the possibility of closing if unattained. This is why some parents have a tough time deciding whether or not their children should attend charter schools because they have the potential to close if goals aren’t met. In relation to expenditures, charter schools are funded through sponsors and grants (Vann 1).
They argued that this was because emphasis was placed on smooth transition, not on curriculum continuity or pedagogy. Despite introduction of the national curriculum, problems with curriculum continuity still persist. Regardless of increase in primary-secondary liaison, enough attention has not been paid to sharing of approaches to teaching styles and methods between primary and secondary sectors. Some secondary schools continue to put emphasis on a ‘clean–slate’ approach, which has been one of the factors that have resulted in duplication of work, student disinterest, confusion, and, ultimately, disengagement. However, they also noted that there were schools that were trying to be innovative in their approach (Galton et al.
The education system has become a monopolizing subject across the United States. So many questions have been raised about what is good to teach, and how those subjects should be taught. Many schools are the pressure of bettering their education system, but tend to find they are also dealing with the trials of having to drop certain subjects in order to focus more intently on the ones deemed most important. Unfortunately, in today's society, the fine arts programs of the school systems have been neglected and even underdeveloped. What many educator's may not realize is that a well-organized and well developed fine arts program can be the difference maker in a child’s learning ability and capability.
