According Bojar to students at the community college have a hard time juggling classes along with his or her family and a job. Many students want teachers to teach and mentor them along with hold them to a standard (Bojar). Students are becoming lazy and waiting till the last minute. They will go to the internet and find other peoples
For example, if a student is in this specific teacher's class, he or she will be bombarded with material the teacher presents. Even though this can be vigorous, the student will attain a greater amount of intellect. The downside to informative teachers is that they barely have time to develop a relationship with their students, being that they are spending most their time solely teaching. Secondly, nonchalant teachers are the type to have most students fall asleep in class. Known to be very mono-toned and apathetic, nonchalant teachers are extremely boring in many opinions.
I was the only child, so it was fairly quiet around the house. I would come home and sit on the couch and do my homework as my mom occasionally came around to see how I was doing. Whenever I slacked off, she made sure that I got back on the right track and got each part of my work done for school in the morning. Sometimes I would wait until the last minute to do projects for classes. I mainly pushed them off because elementary teachers always wanted some kind of colorful and creative diorama or drawing.
My cooperating teacher told me that it’s a good thing if the administration knows your name for positive things not for discipline problems you cannot take care of in your own classroom. As I have had to learn by experience and practice, classroom management is all based on judgment calls. There is no rule book for classroom management and each and every class is different. Having read this book a few months ago when EDU 511 first started I have had a lot of time to be in the classroom. In practice, there are certain behaviors that I have learned to ignore.
A handful of students mouthed off about how their junior English teacher, Mrs. Thornton, hardly ever gave out hard assignments. As class went on Mandrell was pelted with more and more complaints about how her class was stressing the students to a level where they could not really focus on their assignments. All the class came together in unison and agreed that she was assigning them too much work. After some serious thought Mandrell concluded that maybe a change in the way the class was taught would release some of the stress put on the students and take away the worries of focusing on grades (380). After Mandrell was burdened with the complaints of her class, she went home to meditate on the day’s new found conclusion: the students thought her class was a nightmare.
The teacher and the student would discuss why the homework assignment was late. Maybe the student had an emergency at home, ran out of time, or just simply forgot. This dialogue helps resolve a conflict of why the assignment was late. Also, “student discussion of homework can provide helpful feedback” (Protheroe, 2009) and possible solutions to avoid for this to happen in the future. Another way that this homework policy helps promote positive social interaction inside a second grade classroom is when graded assignments not picked up within two days should be discussed with the teacher.
Their bodies were dirty and their clothes were torn and old. You could tell everyday life for these kids was not easy. Even though we couldn’t understand everything they were saying, many of them asked where we were from while others begged for money. The Principal of the school spoke to us before we left. In broken English she told us how thankful they were and how much it meant to everyone.
I tried to keep focus but my solitude was starting to become unbearable. Yes there were many students around but they all seemed to have their own network since they knew their classmates from their previous schools while all of my friends were in regular ed classes. I started to rebel and slacked off so much that teachers began to wonder why i was in a advanced class since they thought i couldn't hack their work load when in reality all i wanted to do was be placed in regular ed just to be with my friends. Odd and dumb reason, i know but I didn't know that at the time. Eventually I was moved from classes due to my insubordination and i was content at the time.
Reshaping Classrooms in Secondary School Over the years, teachers of younger children have developed the art of transforming ordinary classrooms into inspiring places of learning. Teachers of young children are the envy of secondary teachers who cart their wares about like snails, leaving no trace at the conclusion of each lesson. One unfortunate consequence of this nomadic teaching style is that secondary teachers can be tempted by the “do-nothing” approach when it comes to reshaping their classrooms. This essay will focus on four changeable elements within the secondary school classroom, these are: seating arrangement, noise, light and temperature. Research suggests that seating arrangement plays a primary role with noise, light and temperature playing secondary roles (Jensen, 2005) .
