Monday February 18, 2013 Essay An Education Problem Author Mary Sherry In the Praise of the F Word The author Mary Sherry is a school teacher and mother who believes in flunking students that are not motivated to master the basic skills in reading, writing and math.

This gives children the impression that reading is dangerous, because they don’t want to make mistakes and lose the game. For example, when children are given reading assignments, such as reading aloud in class, they are forced to make mistakes in front of their peers, causing children to relate reading with feelings of humiliation. Coincidently, this has a negative effect on the student’s feelings and motives to read. They no longer feel the desire to read, because they have been pressured to overanalyze the text and draw multiple
Tschinkel believes “we are failing to instill a love of learning in most of our students, replacing it instead with a pointless “game-the system” approach”. Tschinkel also states, the blame falls not only on the students, but on the entire educational system- professors, teachers, parents, the media- which encourages the sport metaphor and misrepresents the value of a true education. Tschinkel feels that students can change this mentality and actually take their education seriously however, this transition will be hard. The educational value of this article is for students and professors to realize
Sometimes this is learned behaviour from home and is hard for young children to understand that you are telling them it is not okay to call names because of someone’s skin colour or how they look . It is important to be consistent and reinforce that it’s not okay and it is very upsetting and hurtful. How would they feel if they were left out. We need to teach our children empathy from an early age and to respect each other regardless of race, age, gender, how we look, where were from. 2.2 Any form of prejudice and discrimination can have a severe negative effect throughout a person’s life.
Who taught you this anyways?” I was trembling and under my voice I said, “My mother.” That day after school when my mom was coming to pick me up, the teacher had a conference with her and said that this writing was too advanced for me and I had to print all throughout kindergarten. I could not believe that my teacher was so mad about this incident. She had acted like I punched another classmate in the face, or wrote on the desk with a marker. Her actions were very inappropriate and I can relate to Scout Finch because we were both treated in the same type of
The Oklahoma Department of Education needs to do a thorough check and really dig deep to find out if it is the teachers fault or the students. Many students thrive of the behavior of other students and in some places they have a “don’t care attitude” which in high school is the “cool” thing to do. This result can lead to acting up in class, not doing your homework and doing poorly on their test. This of course leads to bad grades and failing. It would be a tragedy that someone who had to go through high school, better themselves and go to college, was fired because of this.
In a care home setting it may be hard to communicate with residents that have dementia, this is because they forget things, get upset and in the last stages of dementia, they can become violent. This can influence the communication method between you and the resident, as they may not understand what you are trying to explain, also if they are upset it can be confusing and stressful for them. It will affect the conversation because they will be agitated and wont listen to what you have got to say. Another example is in a special school for people with learning disorders. People who have learning disorders may have problems with reading and writing, this will affect the communication barrier as they cant show how they feel through writing and drawing.

According to Morrish (Charles, 2011) giving students a choice in how to behave fails because “if they don’t mind the consequences, they choose to behave discourteously and irresponsible.” (p. 84) Morrish defines discipline in this way, “Discipline is about developing and creating appropriate behaviors, not just managing the ones which are already there,” (2001 p. 10). Real Discipline three phases; (1) train students for compliance (2) directly teach students how to behave in a classroom and practice the skills needed for success, and (3) manage student choice, but only after they have demonstrated mastery of the required responsibilities in a classroom. This program is more rigid and controlling of students, but it appears easy to implement and certainly the effects can be easily measured. The teacher must directly teach students how they are to behave in a classroom setting and then practice it with them until mastery is achieved. There really is no punishment in this system,
