If we cannot show other people that we are honest in our words and actions then who will be willing to follow us? Being a leader you must think about those who are looking up to you and following you not just about yourself. A leader needs to realize that if they are not an honest leader then they could get themselves and the people following them into trouble. Leaders must be moral and virtuous people. They should never take bribes or act corruptly.
Normally during the last few days of school, kids put aside their work because they are excited for school to be done with. When they do that, they start getting low grades. Kids usually don't listen at this time of year. Without kids building up with excitement, they would been good leaders through the years. If kids have year-round school, they probably would keep their grades.
We have to realize that we will get no where in life complaining that the teachers don't care about us or that we don't get it. The problem with Gato’s essay is that he does not stress the idea of confidence as a solution to boredom. You have to be confident in your learning ability and help yourself out. Thats why i agree with some of the parts of Gatto’s essay, other parts I disagree with and thats why I believe my essay should be read by students so that maybe they can relate to the things i went through or that I am talking
A common goal is essential to put in place as if this doesn’t happen confusion can occur and this can affect the young people we care for. As we were working with young people who could be effected by too much uncertainty we looked to our manager for the team objectives as to create as much of a settled environment as possible, a common purpose was important as to create consistency within the staff team. Key features are absent at this stage apart from a motivation throughout the team to do the job well. Storming - stage 2 As a lot of us were new to the company we all wanted to make a good impression, so a little bit of a competitive environment developed, with members of the team having their own ideas of how to do things, disagreements occurred, different personalities coming together caused conflict and this can be difficult for the seniors and manager at this early stage of the team being put together. Also new staff being taught the more modern practices tended to clash with the staff who have been doing the job for many years.
Balancing the need to expose wrong-doing with the need to protect “whistleblowers” requires wisdom. Protection is not a basic right. Right to feel protected as one does one's work. (Incorrect) No one can guarantee—or is responsible—for how we feel. We are responsible for noticing and monitoring our own emotions.
The teachers also should have stepped in when they saw the fight happening and not just stood there. It teaches us students that we should stand up for kids, and teachers are not always the good person in the situation and there could be favoring. In conclusion, I think that The Chocolate War was a very good book that taught very interesting lessons. It always makes me think twice but saying, “no” to something that I should do. I think the lesson here is to just plain out respect everyone and you will not have any problems.
I learn from past mistakes as well as building on past successes. I value other people’s rights and expect them to maintain their responsibilities as much as I do. However, I would never ask someone to do something I would not do. For example, I would not ask someone to give me the answers to a test because I would not do that myself. My ethical blind spot is my belief that motive justifies the method or overconfidence in the process.
There are ways to fight this huge problem of indifference and it can be stopped. Indifference is a very dangerous problem that leads to very dangerous situations. Indifference is when people know of horrible events happening, but choose to stay silent or not take action. If something terrible is happening and people do not try to stop it, it will continue to happen. Until people choose to stop indifference and start caring about others in the world, theses events will not stop.
For example, the most effective method would be, to respect the students and their feelings before they can respect you. Dr. Michaels stated that, “You will gain respect by knowing the emotional, physical, and psychological place of your students. “Show that you care.” This all leads back to students wanting to know that their teacher not only cares about their education but them as an individual. As an after school instructor, I have dealt with many cases where a students didn’t feel like they had to show me respect right off the bat. Which is something that I can understand, because children don’t really comprehend the importance of respect or manners, its something that has to be taught to them.
Valuing colleagues expertise is essential because everyone has different experiences so there is always something new you can learn from other people in life. Open communication gains trust, respect and also makes for a better learning environment. Communication also helps, if you start to ‘gossip’ others may not be open to this, but also because some ‘gossip’ get lost in translation. If you respect others then they will then respect you, making the environment you work in a nicer place to be. You won’t go too far wrong in life if you always treat others the way you expect to be
