The article “No! I will not! Understanding and responding to student defiance” is published by Andrea Smith and Elizabeth Bondy, 4-th grade teacher and a University of Florida College of Education professor respectively, in Childhood education magazine. It contains a thorough analysis of the defiance issue as well as a manual, regulating the conduct of a teacher, who pursues a goal of effective students’ behavior management.
Hi Joselyn, I love what you said about a teacher should teach the rules in a positive way to make sure the students knows them and reminds them of the rules and give them a second chance. You are right a lot of students doesn't know a lot of rules because they weren't taught certain rules. I agree with you about teachers should know where a child is having problems and also understand
When dealing with behavior, remain calm and positive. Do not allow yourself to get in a power struggle with a student. Use system of least prompts to help the child work through the issue.
Mrs. Park’s classroom is an environment in which respect is mandatory. To promote this attitude, Mrs. Park has student-created posters on the classroom walls. The posters include sayings such as, “Kindness Matters”, “Don’t be rude to your peers, even if they are being rude”, “Rise Above”, and “Don’t feed into the bad”. By taking the time out of her content instruction, the students are able to see that Mrs. Park cares about them as individuals. She promotes a safe and respectful environment through her students’ input as seen on the posters. She also takes the students’ input for establishing classroom rules. At the beginning of the year, Mrs. Park enforces three rules that she created herself and then the students are to talk amongst
The roles, responsibilities and boundaries of a teacher and establishing ground rules within a learning environment
Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry. James 1:19. I think this means everyone should listen closely, not be in a hurry and rush yourself, and not be really snippy with someone fastly. This Bible verse can be taken in a lot of ways. It can be taken in a cautious note, a scary note, and even a serious note. I think that is mostly meaning be quick to obey but don’t get too angry. There are a lot of ways you can use this in a classroom. First, just be quiet in general if you can do it at your house you sure can do it in a classroom! Secondly, just listen to the teachers it’s not that hard all you have to do is pay attention. Even if the class really Hoover’s and you really just don’t like the class in general
There are many types of students in High School. The typical jock and player that gets all the girls, then there’s the popular girl that get’s played by the jock. There’s the nerds/overachievers and finally, everyone in between that doesn’t have a category, like the pot-heads and the punk rock kids. Student’s are split into two basic sections; popular and, well, the average. Regardless of what your label is, every student experiences stress and the pressure of competing to get the highest grade. The Overachievers by Alexandra Robbins follows six students in different categories and how the education system has changed them as they transition from high school to college. Today,
After reflecting on this particular situation, I feel as though I did not do my best to model respect for my student because I started to get defensive. Instead of becoming defensive, I should have taken a second to compose myself and really think about the best way to move forward. One way I could have done this would be to try and understand why the student was trying to sneak out of the classroom early. Was the class still learning? Or, could I have asked her to be a bus monitor “helper” so that I could keep an eye on her while preventing an argument from happening. Understanding students’ behaviors and having a toolbox of interventions is extremely important. I strongly believe that I can use the chart in Chapter 8 to better understand my students and their
Classroom procedures outline the teacher on how to do a certain routine class and rules are teacher expectation for student’s behaviors in their classroom. What it means to model a procedure is to demonstrate what they are supposed to do in class and practice procedure means to let student’s role play by asking them to do what the teacher just did to see if the understood what they are supposed to do. I feel procedure should be taught in the beginning of the school year for example how to line up correctly when leaving the classroom to go to another location. I also feel we should teach them when they are going to a feel trip or school activity outside the school because is not something they do often and it will be a different environment.
I view the seven rules as a promise for the future – this is the ideal view in our education as students. We need to think about the way life is transformed and the fact that our surroundings will continue to change. I don’t see any horrible outcomes by using the seven rules. One reason being that I believe confusion should be taught in the classroom because to me, confusion leads to knowledge. Gatto states, “I teach you how to accept confusion as your density,” to me this is more than teaching school, this shows that Gatto is different. Gatto is teaching many students that being remembered for something different can bring greatness. Another piece of Gatto’s writing that captured my attention was, “the lesson of numbered classes is that everyone
While working in a school system, it is important for all professional colleagues to work together to ensure their students are learning the curriculum being taught. While working in a middle school setting, I have seen how the 7th and 8th grade individual subject departments get together every week to talk about how they are going to implement the next lesson for the students to learn. In addition, the 7th and 8th grade teams get together every week to find strategies to use among their team for the students to follow and understand.
Students all have their own personalities, which affects their actions within the classroom. Many times, a students’ behavior is caused by outside factors causing them to act out with disruptive behaviors and disciplinary issues. During these times, a teacher must have a behavior management approach to deter similar behaviors in the future. Many first time teachers are unable to handle dealing with the behaviors and leave their jobs making it all the more important to come up with an effective behavior management approach to curtail those worrisome behaviors before it gets to that point (Sugai, 2009). In an effort to thoroughly discuss an efficient behavior management approach, a common disciplinary problem within classroom and the foundation of the issue will be considered. A combination of approaches may be to needed to stop behavioral issues, such as providing motivation and establishing rules and procedures in a clear way will deter behavioral issues. Finally, an in-depth look at the steps needed in order to implement the approach into the classroom.
The classroom setting for the following procedures is a 2nd grade classroom. I will set high expectations for my students from the first day of school. The learning environment in my classroom will be warm, open, and fair. The rules proposed for my classroom are as follows:
When I arrived to Mrs. Beach’s classroom, she began debriefing what had occurred in the classroom since the last time I was there. Two of the boys in her class had almost gotten into a fight, so the seating chart had to be changed so that these students were as far away from each other as possible. She also informed me that when they had a sub the previous day that they were behaving so poorly that the principal had to come in and have a talk with the students. Because of this, Mrs. Beach warned me that she would be much sterner today, because she was going to have to be out two more days this week, and she needed to reinforce what appropriate behavior looks like in her class.
