• Allows teachers to focus on learning instead of discipline. • This takes away from teaching time because you are preparing rules and procedures. Kagan, Kyle, and Scott's "Win-Win Discipline" • It helps bring out the potential of the students even through disciplining them. • It is very clear for expectations that are passed to the students. • It stresses the importance of using the classroom to help the students overcome negative attitudes.
Thus, the habit of questioning helps in the development of a student's presonality. Since a person can be better influenced when young, he or she should be allowed to question in classes. However, people opposing the process of allowing students question can state that it wastes the time of the class and also sometimes make the class go off-topic. But, the benefits that come from allowing the students question clearly overcomes these minor issues. Ultimately, i feel that students should be allowed by the
The results of these assessments are used to plan the support needed for individuals. This is essential for you as a tutor as you can plan future learning and assessment, and make sure you are not disadvantaging learners by placing them on courses that they are not able to achieve. Computerised Initial Assessments can provide mixed results, although it is explained that it is not a test, some students are obviously intimidated and find the whole process quite daunting. I have noticed this particularly in more mature learners as it is often assumed that people are now IT literate, and this might not be the case. Some student’s do not taking the process seriously, this is usually when they are with their peers and unfortunately this can skew the results.
Also, how it should be banned, there are, believe it or not, some positives to all of the negatives. One, it is good for kids who are behind or need extra help. For example, a student does not understand the material and is academically struggling. This student should be given homework to help the material to gradually become easier and raise the students grades. Greg Toppo agrees with these statements on the positivity of homework for struggling students.
It would be a good “catch up” day for everyone. But I don’t believe that school is like a prison. Yes, you may get the one teacher or maybe teachers, you dislike but that shouldn’t end up ruining the rest of your school experience. School is there to educate you and to give you little tips or advice along the way, and that’s going to help you
Allowing children to be able to think independently and create their own behavior can be an effective way to allow for more autonomy, improving their motivation in many areas and get the confidence to achieve better grades in school. Pink explains that “A sense of autonomy has a powerful effect on individual performance and attitude” (88). Many parents will choose to raise and will motivate their children by how they were brought up as a child. While this may seem like a great way to raise a child, it could control motivation and behavior with the experience of pressure and demand. Parents might want to consider teaching their children about autonomous motivation which promotes greater conceptual understanding, better grades, enhanced persistence at school and in sporting activities, higher productivity, less burnout, and greater levels of psychological well-being.
Inclusion classrooms were developed to help a child with special needs become a part of a regular classroom that is the least restrictive as possible. When a child is first placed on an Individual Education Plan (IEP), they are given some goals based on the type of plan they will be working on. Children are put on an IEP because they have physical, behavior, or academic disabilities which they require some assistance in different forms (Dildine, 2010). The federal government created the Individual with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) to help protect children with disabilities from being excluded or treated unfairly in a regular classroom setting (Ballard, 2006). Placing a child in an inclusive classroom requires a team of people to assess the individual child’s needs and prepare the child, peers and teachers for the child to reenter a regular classroom environment.
Claim: “From infancy to old age, a sense of control over one’s environment has positive effects on well-being, whereas loss of control is negative.” “When children perceived themselves to be more in control of their classroom environment, they were also more likely to see themselves as academically competent, as more worthy and as motivated more by learning.” “People often wonder how a school program in which children make their own choices all day long could work….it is very unusual. Other programs tend to operate on the basis of teachers’ assigning particular way particular work for the group to do in unison. Montessori programs can operate on individual choice in part because of the carefully prepared environment”. “In Montessori classrooms, children have choice and control over their lives” Reference: pg.88 & 91 Direct instruction does affect the child’s curiosity (“independent discovery” Laura Schulz). On July 1, 2011, Science Daily published an article called “Don't Show, Don't Tell?
Social environment permits students to succeed and limits or eliminates certain behaviors. By allowing students to go into a well put school with caring facility members it grants students to succeed in their studies and becomes an extra push to want to do better. According to Developmental Studies center “when students find their school environment to be supportive, and caring , they are less likely to become involved in substance abuse, violence, and other problem behaviors ( Hawkins, Catalano,Kosterman, Abott, & Hill 1999; Battistich & Hom 1997; Resnick et al. 1997) Students are more likely to develop positive attitudes towards themselves and towards other. Connectedness, belongingness all refer to student’s sense of being in close, respectful relationship with other classmates and adults in the school.
Another major advantage of testing a student’s ability is that the student will be able to build confidence. If a person exercises a new skill in a controlled environment, like school, then that person will be able to make mistakes or experiment with new techniques with out major consequences. Fairness is also brought up by the article. Just because an authentic assessment is uniform, standardized, impersonal and absolute, does not make it fair. It is only fair when it is appropriate.
