It is the schools responsibility to be able to provide good enough teachers, who can prepare these students. In order to have a good education, there must be qualified teachers there to teach and prepare students effectively. Bauerlein questions schools curriculums and the way they are presenting “complex texts” (Bauerlein) to the students; “The more high school teachers place complex texts on the syllabus and concoct slow, deliberate reading exercises for students to complete, the more they will inculcate the habit” (Bauerlein). Students learn what their teachers tell them they have to learn, without knowing the effects the teachings will have on them whether good or bad. That is why schools providing qualified teachers are so important
The reading gives him other eyes to see the world, the goal that will change his life, came back to college where he became a dedicated student. That he finish college for be someone in life and for love of his family. Response: In the reading of “A Change of Attitude” by Grant Berry, I wonder if everyone passes by the same situations where reading is not a luxury is a necessity that everyone need to be someone in life and reach our goals. Where high school is not the end of our education is the preparation for college. Like Berry, who decide to continue college and never said that you can’t, that nothing is impossible in this life just the death.

In the book What Great Teachers Do Differently, Todd Whitaker chronicles things that great teachers do. By adopting many of the practices in the book, a new teacher can be well on their way to becoming a great teacher. High expectations, creating a climate of caring, decision making, and learning to ignore things are just a few of the things that great teachers do. Great teachers have high expectations not just for their students, but also for themselves. The expectations a teacher places on his or herself are directly related to those placed on their students.
Wrong! I will tell you why are education system is flawed, why flunking is not a punishment and other options that we could introduce to young struggling students. The American education system is known as one of the best in the world, but just like many great things, flaws are eminent. Year in and year out, students get passed through school prematurely. Many of these kids think they’re on the right track because they pass classes and are moved along with the rest of the class.
In Middle class schools students are expected to learn and follow the guidelines the teachers provide. Anyon analyzed that students in middle class schools must “follow the directions in order to get the right answers, but directions often call for some figuring, some choice, and some decision making.”(p128) Students should often figure out what the directions ask and solve the problem themselves. The teachers are there to give students the first step in order for them to succeed. Milpitas high is also an Affluent Professional school.

This passage in the book also reminded me of a recent conversation I had with my supervising teacher about the hiring process. She told me that some of the best teachers have the worst interviews, but when she’s looking for a potential teacher she relies mostly on intuition; if she believes an individual truly loves children, she is much more likely to hire them regardless of their interview. (Of course the individual would have to demonstrate some basic competencies) The passage also made me think of the beauty of the teaching profession and how it really is difficult to explain to a non-teacher; there are so many small and large events that happen on a daily basis in the academic world that creates a world of amazement and appreciation for the growing
Cognitive coaching is a method which motivates, retains and supports teachers at each stage of development. I spoke with a former teacher and share that on several separate occasions new teachers voiced their concern of not feeling motivated or supported by the school leadership. The mentor filled this void. New teachers felt they had someone to confide in regarding their struggles and trusted the mentor would listen and assist them in growing as a teacher.
