I’m a well-eddicated lady and I’m trying to revolutionise this school with my teaching, but it isn’t going to be possible if I can’t get control of a class of six year olds. I know, sir, don’t give up; I suppose the kids mean well. Though their pity makes me angry, I appreciate their comforting gestures. I guess that I will just press on. That’s all we can do in this day and

Critique of “Will Your Jobs Be Exported” by Alan S. Blinder Starting in elementary school teacher’s begin to prepare you for standardize testing. You learn all this material, and test on it, learn the material… and the cycle continues. Kids who cannot test well drop out or fail and are looked down on by society , kids who succeed pass and continue on and are praised, the question is does that particular style of learning come in handy when all the American people jobs are being exported. According to an article in The Atlantic news paper “53% of recent college graduates are jobless or unemployed” so in the end are we not all equal? When all the jobs of the future go to personal service jobs, will American children only know how to test or fail or to invest all their time into schooling for professions that will not pay?
Although there are good resources in place to nurture and challenge students in our schools, the methods of assessment for placement are out-dated. The Nagleri and the Iowa Test of Basic Skills are used, along with EOG scores for grade 3 and above and prerequisite course grades for high school. There is little staff development in gifted education, but each of our AIG teachers are fully certified. In both the K-2 nurturing program and the grades 3-8 content replacement, students use critical thinking skills and real life applications of these
IEP Observation This was an Initial/Transition from Head Start to Kindergarten IEP for Jasmine Dominguez. She was referred to Speech and Language pathologists for an evaluation out of concern from her teacher’s about her limited speech intelligibility.

Ms. Fernandez was there to interpret for Ms. Solis, while I was there to give descriptions of what a typical day was like for Jasmine. Ms. Pingatore was there to represent the school district that will be providing Jasmine the services she will need.
Due to this significant drop in learning, students are often at different intellectual levels and teachers have to be creative in coming up with solutions to combat this. Teachers use multiple methods such as one-on-one teaching, peer tutoring, and starting the learning material quicker in the beginning of the school year (Von Lunen, 2011). Yet according to the article, the surest way to keep students’ skills sharp is to keep them in school as much as possible (Von Lunen, 2011). Many schools are looking into schedules that model year-round schooling. Information of Interest Through my years of schooling, I have always noticed how difficult it was to retain information from one year to the next.
The Future of Students Equals Change in Everyone The American people make excuses over and over about why our children are struggling in school, but the true question we need to ask is: why aren’t we doing enough to make a change? A few years ago the elementary school that my children attend had implemented a dual language program. After four years, my children were fluent in Spanish. This program was doing so well, that ninety eight percent of the children in the program tested out gifted. Unfortunately somewhere down the line, the school board members at the district, and state level didn’t think the program was worth keeping.
Teachers utilize diverse procedures to control unacceptable behaviors in the classroom Lewis, Romi, Qui and Katz (2005). At the same time, however teachers endeavor to make the classroom contribute to a favorable learning environment for the students. For example using corporal punishment like caning, sending the child out of class for misbehaving, or to the disciplinarian office, or calling their parents is actually harming them as they are not able benefit from it. Classroom management has mostly been seen by teachers as something that is not simple to compromise in education. Sanford and Evertson (1981) have similarly argued that classroom management is a major difficulty for “teachers and administrators in junior high schools” (p. 34).
