...Every teacher in college is different; many have very different teaching habits. If every teacher was the same it would feel as if the students were being taught by robots; students would become very bored throughout the school day. When college students start school they are very nervous about how their teachers are going to act. College teachers can be broken up into three groups: positive, negative, and neutral teachers. The positive teachers are by far the minority of the three groups of teachers. Positive teachers are the most agreeable teachers. A positive teacher is one who seems interested in his or her subject and his or her students. The first thing a positive teacher does is try to learn all of the student’s names. This kind of teacher allows for questions and discussions in class and does not seem to mind if a student disagrees with him or her. A positive teacher shows his or her interest out of class as well. Not only is he or she available for conferences, but he or she encourages students to see him or her if they need help. The students tend to feel comfortable in the presence of this teacher. A good example of a positive teacher is one that always allows time during the class hour for some class discussion. Positive teachers, during conferences with students are always very polite and make as much of an effort as possible to make sure the student understands. The teacher will often show examples to help the student. The professor will go into deeper detail of...

...TEACHERS By: Laura Litalien Keiser University 02/05/2013 Education should be a part of everyone's life. A good education offers something for everyone, whether it is on the simple level or a more complex one. Education should provide an opportunity for students to develop a strong sense of creativity, a high self esteem, and a lifelong respect for learning. Education should help students establish a strong sense of confidence in themselves. A teacher will be one factor that helps a student learn and progress along their way through life. Teachers combine their own ideas with other people's to be able to give a good education to their students. What should the relationship be, between students and teachers in the classroom? The answer to this question, I have found, has many different answers. Each teacher, in my opinion, has their set ways to teach, in which they believe is the right way. So no matter which answer you come up with, the person next to you might come up with a totally opposite answer. This explains why we ask this question in the first place. No one answer is exactly right. There are advantages and disadvantages to two different pedagogical means of which I will discuss: (1) The idea that teachers force issues on students and (2) The idea that teachers sit back and let the students be free to say what they feel. Education is one of the main ingredients in forming a successful society. Our education system here in the USA is very......

...The article I chose was “Teachers Carrying Guns: Debate Follows Sandy Hook Shooting”. In the article the author states that one of the teacher find it absurd that any one would want teacher to have guns in school. He argues that carrying guns in school goes against the main reason he became a teacher. He states that a focus on guns ignores other factors in school violence, such as mental health screening and counseling (huffingtonpost.com). He also stats that the school preaches no violence and to have teacher carry fire arm this will send the wrong message. I will have to is agree with the author because I believe that if teachers did carry guns then this will cut down on the amount of school shooting that have been happening. My reason for this is because if the shooter was aware that every teacher in that school had a gun then he will think twice about going into the school and shoot. Most of the time when criminal commit crimes against people who are not able to defend themselves. They’re very few crimes that are committed against some one with the same type of weapon. I think this will give the shooter a second though because most of these people always commit suicide but if he was to be shoot before he got the chance to hurt some one then they will not do the crime because most of these criminal want to kill whomever they are after then kill themselves. Some of the points that the author made are valid reasons but I also believe that this will teach the kids...

...Wonderful World of Teaching Being a teacher is a great job. Although they are not paid lots of money, teachers are a great example of someone entering into a career because they love doing what they are doing, which is helping others. Teachers, some nicer than others, are sometimes the reason most students choose to further their education in the teaching field as well as with the support of family. When someone who wants to become a teacher, of any kind, this researcher has found that it requires a great deal of patience and self-control. If one was to want to truly become a teacher they must gain experience to see if they really have what it takes; to do this you could try volunteering at local schools in the teaching field wishing to pursue. Becoming a teacher may seem easy but this demanding job requires the right person. The jobs of teachers are more complex than it really seems. Teachers earn the ability to be able to teach their students the basics of everyday life, but most importantly they get to teach them how to read, write, count, and much more. Choosing to become a teacher requires taking on the role preparing students for a better future by introducing them to career related skills as well as their technical skills (Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2012). Most teachers spend the majority of their free time making lesson plans, some spend theirs grading papers and projects.: ; working 40 hours or more during the regular school year as if that’s......

...Chad Segersten EDA-551 Supervision and Instructional Leadership 12 June 2013 Classroom Visitation The main purpose of the observation and visitation was to examine the teaching styles of a novice and veteran teacher. One of the main differences I was familiar with was the distinct age difference. Going into the visitations I was curious as to if the age difference would show through their teaching styles. Both settings were in a 5th grade classroom and within the same elementary school. The first visitation took me to an “older” style of classroom. This veteran teacher was very stern and was very set in procedures throughout the day. I noticed the classroom schedule was displayed in very large text and was located in an area that was very noticeable. The teacher presented a short ten to fifteen minute lessons in math. After she presented the lesson, students asked clarifying questions and then were set to work on a worksheet with partners. The teacher did not move throughout the room for assistance, but she did offer the chance for students to come to her for assistance. Examining the younger, novice teacher, I noted a completely different classroom environment. As I walked in, I noticed I was observing partway through the lesson. Students and teacher were both involved in classroom discussion. Students were working to formulate their own understanding and formula for solving for the area of a square. The best and most interesting aspect to my visitation was......

...Some teachers are helpful and understanding, others are overly demanding and mean. Some give you invaluable life lessons, and others do more harm than good. And yet, even the latter ones facilitate your learning process, albeit in their own convoluted way. Teachers are supposed to help us learn certain subjects, but they often do more than that. They give us an idea of what the real world would be like. Good teachers do that consciously, while bad teachers do that involuntarily. Teacher plays an important role in education of every student. There are many opinions about what are the qualities of a good teacher. Somebody think that it is knowledge of the subject, but there are those who claim that charisma is more important. Personally I think that personal qualities of the teacher are importantly than education. To begin with, teacher must to know how to draw students’ attention, and fun teachers can do it. Also, good teacher should be able to tell interesting stories about life that relate to the subject. It is difficult to understand information, if the teacher says without enthusiasm in a boring monotone voice. No doubt that nowadays teacher is not only a conductor of knowledge but a person who is responsible for the future of his or her students. That is why teacher must be reliable and responsible person. A good teacher is that teacher who is able to find an individual approach to each student it is very important try to find abilities in every child. In contrast,......

...Teachers When students graduate high school or college, they usually get a new perspective about all kinds of things. It takes years of experience and meeting new people to gain a good judgment on anything. Going through life and learning from it makes people more aware of other people and their personality. Also, when graduating, students will have learned to distinguish between the types of teachers. All teachers can be divided into different types, three of them are the strict type, the easy going type and the lazy type. The first type is the strict teacher. Strict teachers usually have the urge to explain every single inch of the book and “leaving no stone unturned”. The never give grades or extra credits unless they think the student really, truly deserves it. So, for most students, that’s another way of saying there is no extra credit. The tests they make are usually the hardest. Because if they’re explaining the whole book, they might as well put everything in the test! Mostly, they are detested and disliked by students. The second one is the easy going type. When it comes to explaining the lesson, they only explain what they deem important or beneficial to the students. They are usually very flexible when giving grades and extra credits, and might even give grades when a student doesn’t even deserves it. For example, if a student is funny and he makes them laugh, he shall be suffocated with extra credits! The tests are usually easy and very straight forward and......

...are five stages as described by Belenky, Clinchy, Goldberger, Tarule, 1986 p.15. The five stages are silence, received knowledge, subjective knowledge, procedural knowledge and constructed knowledge. Crow and Crow 1963, p. 123, further explain: Learning involves change. It is concerned with the acquisition of habits, knowledge, and attitudes. It enables the individual to make both personal and social adjustments. Since the concept of change is inherent in the concept of learning, any change in behavior implies that learning is taking place or has taken place. Learning that occurs during the process of change can be referred to as the learning process . In education, teachers may contemplate the types of learning theory to use with their students. Can teachers distinguish which process is best for their students? What determines the type of learning theory to use? Can the environment determine this or does a teacher’s philosophy determine the theory? These are questions we, as educators, often ponder. Some are answered because everyone learns differently. Can the epistemological lenses through which adult learning be effective for instruction? These are questions I examine in this paper. Learning is a process of making changes in one’s knowledge, skills, values and worldview. Learning takes place in educational institutions, community based programs and in the workplace. Adult learning requires acquiring skills and connecting prior......

...Teacher that changed my life A teacher alone has the ability to change a student’s life. Agree or disagree.                 The school is not a video game which gives immediate gratification, and we cannot claim that students fall in love in each subject taught. After all, what a teacher teaches daily are simple tools like speaking a language, solve a math problem or write an essay that are unlikely by themselves to radically change the lives of students. We all, in our school career, remembered a hurtful words of teachers, with comments on our grades records for example or on the opposite hand a teacher who once believed in us, who knew how to restore our confidence. So a teacher has the ability to change a student lives with sometimes a happy end but it can also influenced the student in disastrous consequences. I never saw a reason to do the work. If my teacher didn’t care enough about me to ask why things weren’t getting done, then why should I do them? There was no real reason besides a grade. The motivation just wasn’t high enough to make me care. Then, I started taking a class with Mrs. Davis as my teacher. When I didn’t do the work, she asked why. She cared. She wanted to know me more than the other teachers seemed to. She wanted to see more than just another face in a desk every day. She wanted that with all her students. She still does. So, I explained things to her. She listened. She paid attention. She remembered and always asked for a...

This paper will discuss the breakdown of the handling of this situation, and the final result, the consequence, that the student, FL was given, and the rebuttal on the part of the parent. FL is a Special Education student in a regular education classroom. FL’s learning disability revolves around reading, and reading comprehension. FL has also been diagnosed as having ADHD by a neuropsychologist. Once a week an Instructional Aide goes into the classroom to work with FL in a one-on-one method on his assignments pertaining to reading, and reading to answer questions. This is done in the general education classroom, and at other times it is done in the vacant classroom. There is a current IEP on file and the regular education teacher is well aware of the goals and guidelines spelled out in the IEP. FL is also an English Language Learner (ELL), and he is on Probation for incidences that have occurred outside of school hours. The classroom teacher had just completed her lecture and question and answer on the U.S. History assignment. While she was circulating the room checking for understanding she heard a conversation between FL and another regular education student, (SB), also male. It was obvious they were not discussing the assignment, and more obvious that if the teacher did not curtail the conversation that......

...Teachers play an important role in students’ learning. According to Yinger, teacher quality has major impact on student learning. Cullingford said the teacher is one of the main provider of the ‘culture’ that enables the child to learn. Teacher can have a very subtle and profound effect on the pupil students’ by creating conditions for motivation. Children and teachers have an interdependent learning and teaching relationship. “Children are social actors and partners in learning and teaching. Teachers are predecessors, socializing agents, and creativity agents for children; they are key socialization agents after parents (Tan, 2004, p.74)”. Given the close relationship of teachers and students, it is shown that the quality and characteristics of teachers are essential to student’s learning. The view of teachers transmitting a ‘language’ to students gives rise to a teacher-centered classroom. The following problems arise: When students do not listen as he/she has negative attitudes, conflicting beliefs, low motivation, lack of self-confidence, low self-esteem, or high anxiety (language classes typically have high anxiety levels), a learner-centered classroom appears. Teaching method have to change in order to suit the changing word. Simply transmitting materials to students is not enough. The knowledge taught in school were not long-lasting and people forget them after years. Teaching method have to change in order to suit the changing word. Simply transmitting......

It’s an invasion of privacy for the students and the teachers. Facebooks is a site not only for people to share their feelings, people also get on there to snoop on their friends and feed off of the comments that cause conflicts. In that case, students could see the comments that their teachers post on Facebook. This could actually lead to an accidental sighting of their teachers feelings and/or secrets, and end up actually offending the student. There are problems, such as gossip, that can be leaked to the student in some cases. The teacher might post something about a troubled student; if the student has befriended the teacher, he/she could see the post. The teacher could get in a lot of trouble for talking about one of their students on social media. Some of the comments could lead to a bad impression as well. Same thing goes for the student as well. every day there are students that go to Facebook to talk about and start rumors about their teachers. For the teachers that are friends with the students could see what their students wrote on the net. It can be not only frustrating but it is embarrassing for the teacher to see that their student posted that on Facebook, which would probably lead to a bad impression on the students. Anything that is posted about the teacher can be accessed by any of their friends. There......
