Unproductive Student Behavior Analysis

Good Essays
As educators, we need to understand and learn how to become more skilled at implementing new methods for responding to unproductive student behavior. Definitely, it is not an easy task for most educators. We know that our responsibility is to teach and help all students become productive citizens even if they come from home with a negative attitude; therefore, we need to find new alternative ways on how to handle these unproductive student behaviors without confronting them. One of the most common classroom management challenges facing teachers is how to effectively respond when a student disrupts the classroom while the teacher is presenting the lesson (Jones & Jones, 2016). Even though I am an experience educator, I feel the need of acquiring …show more content…
The option that I selected to be more successful was to move near the student using proximity control and include him in the lesson so he could feel involved in the lesson. The other two options were not appropriate interventions for an effective educator because they did not provide an opportunity for the student to grow and learn. According to Jones and Jones (2016), discipline should be perceived as an opportunity to teach students a set of values about how people can live together in our society. In the second scenario the student fails and keeps disrupting the learning process. The option that I selected was to show respect for the student by validating his feelings and emphasizing him to take responsibility for his behavior as well as providing an option to develop a new skill. On scenario number three, the student seems to be intimidating others students talking loudly, I chose to intervene by implementing the I-messages method because I am providing assistance and an opportunity to work with me to improve his skills in this important area. The other two options were not effective interventions because both options emphasize the implementation of …show more content…
The other option was not appropriate because it emphasized that punishment had to be implemented so students can learn to behave. Many teachers implement punishment methods with their students because they do not want to spend time dealing with them. In scenario number two, the teacher is not sure about the effectiveness of the discipline system and wants to know if it meets the best practice standards. In this scenario, I chose the option of discussing with the administrator, but I also thought it was a good idea to compare my ideas to concepts by leaders in the field. I think option number one is not an appropriate method because it deals with asking teachers that you respect to review your ideas. Just because you respect a person or colleague, it does not mean they are experts in evaluating a discipline system. All the options that I selected during the simulation were focused on helping students learn how to behave appropriately, providing opportunities for them to grow and succeed in the school environment. Some options provided were not appropriate. For instance, some options given were not effective methods such as writing the student’s name on a

    Another strategy I would do as the teacher is I wouldn’t start the class by individualizing a student for testing or telling my paraprofessional at the last minute to teach the class and the lesson for me. If I was going to have a paraprofessional teach I would tell them in advanced so they could be prepared. I think a lot of the problem with this class was the teacher was preoccupied and the paraprofessional was unprepared and was trying to get through the…

    In his book, Motschenbacher maintains that, “This is a reaction to the finding that heteronormative structures are often not beneficial to teaching, and that is for both teachers and students” (39). In making this comment, says that it’s just a test to see what people think if it well help the teachers as well as the students. I don’t agree because we have to see if it benefits students more the teachers. Most of them have children, so they should have a second opinion about this. He also states that, “This is unfortunate in the light that teaching materials are supposed to prepare students for the challenges of future society” (39).…

    Teachers are more than simply blind punishers. They look at the action and the cause of the misbehavior as opposed to labeling the student. The least useful portion of Dreikurs’ theory is that students may not be truthful when explaining why they misbehaved and it may be difficult for the teacher to identify the true reason. Lee and Marlene Canter: Discipline through assertive tactics Lee and Marlene Canter believe that educators should try to catch students doing good deeds, set standardized rules and punishments, and have the expectations for all students. The Canters believe that there is a place for punishment in the classroom, but only if it is set in stone and standardized.…

    Such training is unwise, and its effect disastrous.” (p. 57). Her point is that there has to be training of the will, otherwise the child will not have guidance and run about wildly, but one cannot aim to have all the wills in the classroom be the same. This is important for my classroom philosophy because I want to treat each child as the individual they are. Some of my favorite teachers were the ones who took time to learn about each of us and treated us accordingly. They were not concerned about breaking the will, but rather being a mentor and guiding us through…

    While there are dangers in becoming too blasé about one's achievements, negative criticism can be highly de-motivating.’ However, it is necessary that as a tutor we must point out the shortcomings of a students work to ensure they meet the criteria set, it is the manner in which we do it to ensure progression. We as a teacher should ‘…support the student in finding their own way of correcting problems, and should not do all the work for them. (Rogers, 2001). When giving feedback to my own student, it is essential that it is clear and specific and must not focus on too may aspects at the same time as this may confuse or upset the student. We must also ensure that feedback is delivered in a suitable area or environment so not to distress the student.…

    There are prerequisites for teachers for having culturally responsive classroom management. “First, we must recognize that we are all cultural beings, with our own beliefs, biases, and assumptions about human behavior.” If teachers recognize their own biases, then they are less likely to judge students who are a different culture than them and treat the children more fairly. “Second, we must acknowledge the cultural, racial, ethnic, and class differences that exist among people.” Some teachers try to avoid discussing different cultures because they do not want to create stereotypes of cultures. However, it is important that teachers learn about different cultures and teach their students what they learn so that they can have CRCM. A teacher’s cultural content knowledge can be used to model an openness to include and learn more about other cultures, which can be meaningful to students and families.…

    However, there are factors that they cannot control such as the number and kinds of learners they may have in the classroom, the class size, time spent with each child, and the availability of equipment. With all of these factors weighing on the teachers mind it is no wonder that when looking at the survey discussed in class, it was found that these issues do not leave the teacher’s mind. We always want the best for our student so we will continually worry as to whether or not they are receiving the best education possible. Our personalities alone are not enough to carry the weight of a poor school. We must combine it with our knowledge of the content and our experience level to create a favorable outcome for the…

    In an article by Catherine Scott she points out that endorsing the idea of learning styles wastes teaching and learning time, promotes damaging stereotypes about individuals and interferes with the development of evidence-based practices (Scott, 2010). Teachers from preschool to the university level are using learning styles in the classroom even though the idea is being criticized. The students are then almost being guided to what they should learn or to participate only in the way that the teachings are being structured to the student’s learning abilities (Scott, 2010). It does not help that many teachers and professors are using these learning techniques, so the idea of learning styles are being branched out even though research does not support the idea. Scott makes an important point when she mentions about promoting damaging stereotypes.…

    Now that I have gone through the critical witnessing process, I understand that the term “good” is not descriptive enough of a student. “Good” or “bad” are just labels that conceal, rather than reveal the whole picture of a student (Ayers, p. 42). In order to teach students well, I have to be able to truly see my students. In addition, I discovered that child testimonies from children conflict the testimonies from adults. Therefore, influencing the way teachers teach their students.…

    Parent Involvement Summary

    Because the children are taught in the schools, one suggestion by educators to avoid this problem is for the parents to ask the child to share what they learned in class as a method of encouragement when the child is not sure how to begin a problem. However, depending on the age of the child this can be at times, somewhat problematic. As the included examples of CC math illustrate, it is difficult and frustrating for parents to firmly grasp some of the new concepts of "decomposing" numbers independently. There is frustration on the part of the concerned parents who wants to take an active role in assisting in their children 's education outside of…
