Caula Rogers Eng-105 English Composition 1 03/30/2014 Dr. Victoria Smith Impact of ADHD on a Child’s Schooling Children with ADHD generally have trouble in school, only because school causes many trials for children with ADHD. ADHD is not a learning disorder; however it can cause children to have problems with learning. Furthermore, children with ADHD have an excessive rate of learning disorders and will have problems with other school-work like calculation and following a long with his/her teacher during direct instructional time. But with enduring and an efficient plan, the child will be capable of succeeding in the classroom. ADHD negatively can affect a child’s social and emotional behavior and the ability to control them in a positive manner in a school environment.
<BR>Are boys and girls treated differently by the teacher in classroom situations? This is a question that has frustrated many psychologists and educators. In many cases, I think gender does play a significant role in the education process. Teachers may unconsciously give more attention to the boys in a classroom. Peggy Orenstein proved this in her essay, "Learning Silence: Scenes from the Class Struggle," in which she did field research in junior high schools interviewing and observing the interaction of teachers to their students.
Not all students learn the same way, therefore, teachers need to try different ways to to teach the material. Students also must learn to try different rules and strategies because the ones they are using may not be effective in solving their problems. Also, these children may have more problems working through these assignments because of their culture, the familiar cognitive landscapes, as Rose described it, have changed. The strategies and rules these kids have used before, simply won't work when applied to the new assignments that they are given. Could we also say that these new assignments are ineffective
Philosophy of Technology Integration Technology is not just hardware, but an opportunity to enhance learning. When used right technology in the classroom can help to enhance students learning and eliminate teaching to the standards. I believe that when established rules are set in place and students understand that technology is a privilege and needs to be used correctly it can be a valuable tool. Technology is not a baby-sitter or a replacement for teachers, and will not be treated as such. The uses for technology greatly outweigh the possible negative effects that it can have in a classroom.
Some students just are not mentally prepared for the classroom whether it be because they struggle with social or self-management skills, or because they have a tough home life, they can because a disruption for others so it is essential for the school system to come up with a way to diffuse the maladaptive behavior. Many studies are conducted to test the validity of functional behavioral assessments. One study sought out to
The may find it harder to struggle in school since teachers do not know that they have a disability and instead they could be just labelled as lazy, stupid or dumb. The students that have been labelled may feel that the school doesn’t think that they are capable to study and work towards getting the best grades. This is because they are labelled for having a disability even though they don’t, so they think that the only reason why the teachers thinks the have a
Critics who support online education over classroom education often believe that both types of education provide students with an equivalent level of education, and therefore, should give students equal recognition. In “Online Education Rivals Chalk and Talk Variety,” Sandra C. Ceraulo claimed that, “I am impressed by the fact that my online students become as skilled as their peers in the traditional classroom” (Ceraulo 175). Ceraulo expresses that online courses give students just as good an education as traditional courses because students are able to master the material just as well, without having to physically attend class. On the other hand, critics who support classroom education over online education often believe that classroom education is more rigorous in education. In “Calling a University Virtual Creates an Actual Oxymoron,” Marilyn Kassar argued that “A university education involves, among all other things, debate, discussion, and an exchange of ideas among classmates and professors, both inside and outside the classroom” (Karras 180).
If this is the case the teacher can tell if gifted children are helping their fellow classmates with the homework or work that is being taught. Gifted children normally need more of a challenge in school than other children. Parents who have a gifted child will want them to not be in a room where they aren’t challenged enough because then the child isn't learning anything. If a child isn't learning anything they will get bored easier and then they won’t want to go to school. In schools, there are more children who need more help than gifted children.
Standardized testing has been the reason behind many of the negative effects on students that educational theorist John Holt describes, like a student rarely being able to get through school “with much left of his curiosity, his independence, or his sense of his own dignity, competence, and worth.” For example, in regards to curiosity, testing stifles this by forcing students to only study for the content on tests and not encouraging them to explore and find subjects that they are interested in. Because the content of these types of tests rarely interests students, students may do well on them by memorizing facts, but they do not often truly learn the content. Both by failing to offer subjects that may appeal to students and by not presenting given subjects in a way conducive to learning, schools are harming individuality in favor of needless
(Project RED, 2010) The real issue is that some schools/ district restrict students from using technology in school to support their education. It is stated that schools have difficulty keeping up with new technology so they are either behind and have a hard time catching up or they just do not update their technology restricting students from necessary resources. (Education Weekly, 2011) Some forms of learning that students found benefitting them at home as well as in school involving technology is online learning. Some surveys and research has been done that proves that online learning or blending learning elaborates students’ learning and develops their skill. Along with e-learning falls a category called social networking which has increasingly caught the attention of a lot of school board officials.
