  • Power And Control Over Students
    774 words
    Philosophy of Classroom Discipline " Power is exercised only over free subjects, and only insofar as they are free.

  • Use Mystification
    285 words

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 ...

When preparing your own objectives they need t...

  • Traditional Assessments Students

    Reflection on Alternative Assessments Traditional and alternative assessments share some key elements, yet differ as well. All assessments, whether given as a test after a unit or alternative, should be measurable and be reliable and valid by having clear criteria to measure the learning targets. Traditional and alternative assessments generally differ in timing, feedback, student's involvement, and how the teacher uses the information though. The time in which traditional assessments such as af...

  • Workplace Drug Testing And Drug Abuse Policies
    3,521 words
    Privacy in America: Workplace Drug Testing December 31, 1997 Today, in some industries, taking a drug test is as routine as filling out a job application. In fact, workplace drug testing is up 277 percent from 1987; despite the fact that random drug testing is unfair, often inaccurate and unproven as a means of stopping drug use. But because there are few laws protecting our privacy in the workplace, millions of American workers are tested yearly, even though they aren't suspected of drug use. A...

    "Every year, 5.7 million animals are used in secondary and college science classes" (Dissection, par 1). This is very sad to consider when one takes into account the growing number of computer dissection simulations currently available to schools.

A consideration that should be made when planning the coursework for classes that include animal dissection would be, "although dissection is often seen as a useful ...
