In the book Feed there are some similarities and differences between teenagers today, than in the book. One difference that is totally different is the language we speak in our society today. In the book they use weird words like “youch, unettes, unit, and null”. When I first read these words I thought to myself like, “What the heck does this mean?” I had to re-read the sentence over again, just so I could comprehend the stuff they were saying to each other. One similarity between teenagers today and in the book Feed is that we both use slang words.
The opposite learning styles, involving listening and verbal skills, are more difficult for me. I would much rather learn how something works by using it than by listening to someone tell me how it works. When any of my teachers stand in front of the classroom and just reads form the text book. This type of teaching is my kryptonite, the words just pass right through me. To help me my learning process in class's like that i need to recreate the lectured material using my own visual tools and adapt my teacher's preferred teaching methods to my preferred learning styles.
By allowing certain behaviors to occur without consequences the teacher is sending the message that it is okay. This can cause the students to lose focus and a decrease in understanding of the lesson being taught. It can also allow chaos to reign supreme.

If the displays are to do with a topic that the class has just completed, these displays are changed during the term to highlight the work that is being done. When putting up a display, the teachers need to make sure that the resources used are relevant to the display. This means that the all of the information that they add, pictures, and the types of materials need to be relevant the topic. They also need to make sure that the resources are not damaged when it comes to taking the displays down. In order to do this, blue tack is recommended when it comes to holding items of work / resources up.
Author and character O’Brian tell the story in such a way to make it believable that the two different people are really the same person. His aim in the novel was intended to direct the readers more away from the technical facts and more towards the subjected facts. By doing this the reader could establish the bond between an audience and the soldier telling his story. In the end we learn “Story-truth is truer sometimes than happening –truth” (171. ), but determining what is reality and fiction can sometimes be
The teacher may have genuinely been concerned with presenting too much information to students but through my classes at Sage, excessive stimuli is good of students with ADD because it gives them many things to focus on instead of causing behavioral problems.

Anyon does think that more research needs to be done to clearly show how economic status has a direct connection to the role in children’s education. What I think one of the key aspects of Anyon’s essay is the examples that were given for each school and how the social class affected the teaching. Examples were given by what the teacher said and how he/she taught, I was able to put myself in the classroom and see how I would have handled learning. Starting with the working-class schools, Anyon observed how teachers didn’t explain the work, how it would relate to other lessons, or the point of learning. I feel if you don’t understand the point of something, what is the point of learning?
Study Session #3 Learning Reports __________________________________ What is the most valuable concept learned in this study session: For me it had to be the need for me to allow more freedom to my students.

Dress Codes in Schools Kelly Mennillo Com/220 Due: 4/22/12 Kelly Munoz Some people believe that our schools should require their students to adapt to a dress code to improve student behavior, enhance students’ self-confidence, and reduce differences among socioeconomic levels. Others may say that policies enforcing dress codes, or requiring school uniforms violate students’ First Amendment rights, and suppress individuality. The argument over school dress codes and school-uniform policies continue to rage in the meeting rooms, administrative officers, and classrooms of public schools throughout the country. School officials place dress code policies so there will be orderly dressing amongst the students’. Dress codes are important, but they are troublesome at the same time.
