  • Students Work As A Community
    1,595 words
    Improving the Literacy of America Through Our Classrooms Reading and writing are two of the most important functions performed on a daily basis by individuals. One problem in America is that a significant amount of the population can not perform one or both of these tasks. These two tasks are commonly referred to as literacy. What encompasses a literate individual is a controversial topic. For example, if someone can read a sentence and decipher what it means does this mean the person is literat...

  • Teachers And Classrooms With Effective Learning Environments
    1,270 words
    Rather than emphasizing on maintaining discipline in a classroom, classroom management would be more appropriate for an effective teacher. Discipline has two significant limitations such that discipline highlights the individual rather than the classroom and secondly it connotes negative behavior (352). Whereas classroom management is broadly defined as "all of those positive behaviors and decisions a teacher makes to facilitate the learning process of their students" also reiterating all of tho...
  • Use Mystification
    285 words
    Mystification According to McNeil, mystification is a technique used by teachers who are not fully informed on the topic in which they are instructed to teach. Teachers often use mystification when teaching a complex, or controversial topic. They mystify the topic by making it appear very important, but unknowable, thus leaving the student with a sense of wonder, or mystery. Mystification does count as a form of knowledge control because mystification makes it impossible for a student to gain a ...
  • Students Of The 21st Century
    346 words
    Teachers of the 21st century, like those of the past, are not only teachers of subjects such as math, English, or science. Teachers are role models, confidants, and continual learners. To prepare our students for their future, we must also teach many more basic concepts. One of the greatest challenges of preparing students will be teaching them to express their opinions and beliefs without the fear that they will be scorned. If a student is allowed to express their own multicultural views, they ...

  • Behavior And Classroom Rules
    1,016 words
    My Philosophy on Classroom Discipline My philosophy regarding the best way to manage a classroom is through a model of ownership and preventative discipline. In order to accomplish this, the teacher needs to set the tone for the class during the first two weeks of school and never veer from it. During this time, the students will be made aware of my classroom rules as well as what I expect out of each of them on a daily basis. This will create an open atmosphere in which all members of the class...
  • Important For My Students

    As a secondary English teacher, I hold some important tenets in regards to running a high school classroom as smoothly as possible.

    There are many different ways to run a successful and effective classroom. Numerous people have tried to give me the best advice for making things work, but ultimately it will be my choice to decide what works best for me.

  • Online Technical Courses To Classroom
    1,066 words
    Abstract As the Internet becomes increasingly popular, so do online classes. Last year alone, there was a 13% increase in registration for distance learning classes throughout the public university system. (Beverly Creamer, 2003) It is now possible for people to learn conveniently from home or office. People that want to go to school can do so now because scheduling and geographic location does not matter with online classes because the class course is brought to the student rather than the stud...
  • Problems With Some Students
    857 words
    As a classroom teacher there will always be problems with some students. These problems can be caused by outside sources, such as family problems, or perhaps the student might have a learning disability that hasn't been brought to anyone's attention. Students show in many ways that they are having difficulties in class. Generally, students won't come to you and ask for help when they are having a hard time. Most of these students are more withdrawn from the classroom. One telltale sign is they a...
  • Students Into Regular Classrooms
    348 words
    Since the 1980's, more and more schools have begun to practice the technique of inclusion and mainstreaming in their classrooms. These practices involve the integration of special education students into regular education classrooms. This is an extremely controversial idea because it relates to educational and social values, as well as our sense of individual worth (Educational Resources). While full inclusion of all students into regular classrooms may not be beneficial to all, inclusion is a w...
  • Kohl's Student
    1,616 words
    FREEDOM The definition of freedom is "the power to act, speak, or think without externally imposed restraints". Living in the land of the free gives opportunity to the people to exercise free choice. In terms of education, it means allowing students to learn by intrinsic motivation. I believe that Herbert Kohl, the teacher in 36 Children, gave his students the opportunity to learn through this thing called " freedom" by allowing them to explore their curiosities, exploit their strengths and weak...

  • Students Desks In The Classroom
    651 words
    A philosophy of education is very important in the teaching profession. All teachers have their own unique philosophies. My personal philosophy of education contains many different aspects. For instance, in my opinion all teachers are valuable. The younger the teacher the more current the knowledge, the older the teacher the better the wisdom. Determining a personal philosophy of education is a very important part in becoming a teacher. One day, I hope to be able to utilize my philosophy. My phi...
  • Elementary Schools Dont
    521 words
    Boundary Street Elementary School When I got to the school, the first thing I did was check into the office. There I met the school secretary, who was very nice and willing to help me in any way she could. I was allowed to move about the school freely, while wearing a visitors badge or pass. I felt very comfortable walking around the school, as it was a very inviting atmosphere. The corridors were decorated with the students different artworks and projects. I really think that is a great idea be...

    The Internet in the Modern Classroom The human need for current information and knowledge continues to grow as each year passes, and is presently as high as it has ever been.

  • Teachers Set For Their Students
    741 words
    Teaching was explained to me as an art form and a mystery. It draws to the fact that the student is a blank canvas waiting to be transformed into a painting; yet the mystery is the artist does not have complete control of how the canvas will transform the paint. Each canvas will take the colors applied by the artist and may change it just a slight shade, or the canvas could be completely resistant to all paints thus remaining blank. It is this blank canvas or resistant student that keeps teacher...
