Case Study #3 Building a Coalition MGMT 591-10559 Leadership & Organizational Behavior Part I: Group Development The group is at the forming stage. Our textbook states the forming stage is characterized by a great deal of uncertainty about the group’s purpose, structure and leadership. Members “test the waters” to determine what types of behaviors are acceptable. After reading over the case study I was torn between the group being at the forming stage or the storming stage. The group does have purpose as they plan to create an after-school program which will improve school performance both by the students and the teachers.
Bullying of any sort stops members of the setting from being able to achieve their full potential and prevents equality of opportunity. Bullying is anti-social behaviour and affects everyone it is unacceptable and should not be tolerated which is why anti-bullying policies and procedures are in place, to protect all. The following steps should be taken when dealing with incidents: * If bullying is suspected or reported, the incident will be dealt with initially by the child’s keyworker or adult on duty. The incident will be treated as an urgent priority. * A clear account of the incident will be recorded and given to the line manager.
This article is aimed at young children who are doing hard labor work, government officials and worldwide organizations who are willing to help stop it all and get positive results in the end. Appeal to sense of justice is a persuasive technique, which is used in this article. It is located under the sub-heading A U.S Problem Too, Dorigny writes, ‘In 1983 a federal law was passed that set child-labor guidelines, limiting work hours for kids and requiring safe conditions.’ By using this persuasive technique it enables readers to play on the belief that we all have the right to be treated fairly and that the readers of this article should strive for just outcomes in the end. The writer also appeals to fear and insecurity of close to 1 million kids in the U.S work for farmers from sunup till sundown, who harvest and haul and work near dangerous machinery or in other hazardous conditions. This suggests that the children’s safety; security and freedom are very well at risk.
Planning - the teacher will ask her staff to look over her planning and to give an opinion on it, if the staff feel there could be any improvements then they will tell the teacher. Delivery - we would make sure all the equipment needed for the lesson is all ready for when the pupils come to do the lesson. The teacher may ask for one member of staff to work 1-1 with a pupil to keep them on task, and the rest of the staff to support the other pupils. We would take our lead from the teacher and listen to what she wants us to do. Review - we would review the lesson at the end of the day and talk about what we thought went well and what we thought could do with improving.
Violence in Schools I chose Youth Violence in Schools as the topic for my post. I chose this particular topic because it is something that I have witnessed in the different schools my children have attended and wanted to know more of. I believe the majority of the time urban schools receive more negative publicity, based on the environment in which they are given. One day I would like to be able to assist these urban schools by volunteering and donating time to try and make things better for them. However, in this post I will focus and discuss the violence in these urban schools.
The procedure that is put in place for anti-bullying is: For the school of my placement takes action immediately if bullying happens, which then we help bullies realize the consequences of their actions and to teach them different and better ways of behaving in the future and we also support victims of bullying by providing them with ways on how to deal with any types of bullying if it was to happen again. Our code of conduct policy states that each year group has agreed a code of conduct with their teachers and in Reception the children have their own set of golden rules about how to behave in class. Home and school contracts are signed by parents and children. When they start at our school and a copy is sent home and a copy is retained by school. We aim to work together as a school and maintain a whole school approach to developing high standards of behavior.
If you are uncomfortable with one of these three relationships, you would not be able to enjoy your delightful job of teaching. Here I would like to introduce to you some of the tips I think are important in maintaining a healthy relationship. First, as you may all know, you would need to have a healthy relationship with your students. Your students are still young, so they may cause problems that you would need to solve. Let us say that a student got outraged, got into a fight, and shattered the window glass.
Research Paper Anmol Gulati EPSY 201 Making decisions are hard for children and even adolescents. It becomes harder when their peers get involved and try to influence their decisions in one way or another. Negative peer influence commonly referred to as peer pressure is one of the major reasons why children and adolescents make bad decisions for themselves. Since peer pressure affects everyone, there is an urgent need to combat this problem. In this paper, I will try to define peer pressure and explain how it works in children.
It seemed to be the most effective and typical way to discipline their kids. Today spanking or smacking is a major issue in todays society. Many more people these days believe that smacking children is a form of child abuse and if a parent smacks a child in public there likely to be stared at, have something said to them or in extreme cases might be reported for abuse. Having been smacked as a child a few times for naughty behaviour, I now believe that smacking should not be illegal and that it is a vital part in helping develop discipline , understanding the hierarchy between parent and child and keeping the child and others out of harm. I am a firm believer that a short, sharp smack can keep children under control.
The father Lor stated that he hopes those who investigate such abuse have learned a lesson and will listen more carefully to what parents are saying before removing children from their homes. As you look at the scenario above you can see that it is in the best interest of the police and school official to come up with a dialog that can be more effective in understanding what is going on in a household. Such incidents as this one occurs very often and in some situations the children are in immediate danger and in others like above it was just a case of not being knowledgeable on cultural history and natural healing rituals. These types of misunderstandings can be avoided by just incorporating cultural understanding and diversity training in careers that will deal with the societal diversity and definitely for those careers that follow the mandated reporting rule. Now to explain a little more about culture which consistent of beliefs, values, symbols and language our society has opened the doors to many different cultures over the years.
