My students will develop a community that respects each other in the classroom as well as out of the classroom. Once these goals have been met I feel that the rest of the year will be smooth sailing! (Gallagher, 1999-2012). In the field of education, good classroom management is essential ( Froyer & Iverson, 1999) . Encouraging and establishing student self-control through a process of promoting positive student achievement and behavior is what every classroom needs.
In Holden’s case, he probably wanted to say that Holden should follow the school rules and become obedient. In Mr. Spencer’s view Holden was failing in school, and because they are in a close relationship, he definitely wanted to help Holden to normally spend his school life. Therefore, by telling Holden this quote, he hoped Holden would not try to break school rules and live along not crossing any bounds that would lead him into difficulties. Question #6. Why wouldn’t Holden try to listen to Mr. Spencer about his poor academic accomplishments although he knows his failures?
Students attending the high school begin their day, every day, at exactly 8:16 am and are expected to attend “Period 1, Period 2, Period 3… etc.” until they end their day at 3:01. Therefore, there is no need for students to learn how to manage their time because their day has already been planned out for them. The conformity of high school prevents students from becoming independent and prepared for life after they graduate. In addition to hindering students’ knowledge of the outside world, the conformity of public school can also hinder the speed at which they enter it. I have experienced this first-hand.
It may have been only in 1987 that the first public school to introduce school uniforms was Cherry Hill Elementary School in Baltimore, Maryland. Educators have been disputing whether uniforms can be a useful tool in improving children’s learning skills or if they stifle students’ freedom of expression. Uniforms are good for a learning environment. According to an article in a San Francisco newspaper, “Public schools don’t violate students’ freedom of expression by requiring them to wear uniforms. The Clark County School districts policies were not intending to squelch free speech but instead were aimed at ‘creating an educational environment free from the distractions, dangers, and disagreements that result when student clothing choices are left unrestricted,’ said Judge Michael Hawkins.” (Egelko) If there is not a distraction of what people are wearing, there is more of a chance that students would focus more on learning.
Rhetoric in Integration and Segregation I believe in integration. After watching the video on the Little Rock Nine on 1957, I believe the nine students and the white students should be integrated together in Central High School, but I also believe they should take the nine students safety to another level. They should try to control the crowd's violent approach toward the nine students. Those nine students were invited to Central High for their excellent grades, and attendance. They should be intergrated together, the video said, "Schools are the same, but in reality they are not."
Gerald Graff points out the pressure that society and school put on students to be academically intelligent. Students must have the perfect grades and attend the highest ranking school. Students also have to go to extreme measures to just get through one class because they know that failing is not a option. As Graff says, “To say that students need to see their interests “through academic eyes” is to say that street smarts are not enough” (p.303). I agree with what Graff says and also agree when he says, “The challenge, as a college professor Ned Laff has put it, “is not simply to exploit students’ nonacademic interests, but to get them to see those interests through academic eyes” (p.302).
Students are expected to respect their professor, each other, and the learning environment of our college classroom. Disruptive behavior, as defined by the teacher of record, will not be tolerated. If a student is repeatedly disruptive or refuses to comply with a reasonable reminder, he or she will be asked to leave the classroom and counted as absent. Section 504 Schreiner University is compliant with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 with respect to providing academic adjustments/auxiliary aids to qualified students. Students requiring such accommodations should contact the Section 504 Coordinator in Room 218, Dickey Hall.
4. Does this bill address the education of the principals on the needs of the ELL students so they can lead the teachers in their schools to a successful learning program for the ELL students? We have seen that principals now undergo "professional development leadership training" which includes modules on a computer and not interaction with parents, teachers and students (Suntimes, 2012). "This legislation will help ensure that Chicago has the tools we need to give our children the education they deserve," the mayor said in a statement. But does it really?
This is a strong proposal and could be a good recommendation for the education system; high schools should have their students graduate at sixteen opposed to eighteen. This could be accomplished by starting the so-called high school in seventh grade and not ninth grade. This transformation would allow the 16-year-old to venture off and encounter the real world, through an internship or apprenticeship. Students would need to become responsible and more mature as they would be alongside an adult in a professional setting. Our American education system is only postponing these students from entering the real world.
The Declaration of Independence is one of the most powerful documents ever written. The basic principles outlined by this world-changing legal statement have helped to develop the basic foundations of the United States that have survived through the past 200 years. It was originally written to describe America's values and reasons that the country intended to separate from England. The explanations provided in this document are very general, and leave room for interpretation. The ideas discussed in the Declaration are identical to the ones still practiced in society today.
