1. According to what you read, describe at least three challenges that are unique to teaching high poverty students? The first challenge in teaching high poverty students is not to accept failures and never use diverse assumptions on students. According the article “ No Choice But Success,” it is important for teachers to never find excuses for students based on their background. This is easy to say but hard to do, with limited time and limited resources some teachers may blame students for their failures. For students from low income communities, they may not get the help at home, feel hungry when they come to school, or struggle with problems at home. It is easy for teachers to give up on poor students because they think there is only so much they can do. However with this mind set, the situation will only get worse. It is the teacher’s job to make sure that all students get the same opportunity to learn and succeed. Setting high expectations for every student, make sure students do their work and learn. I believe, except during school hours, teachers should always communicate with both students and parents, …show more content…
I agree with it, students been punished, isolated, suspended can cause more misbehavior and leads to more problems. Because students are not learning at that time, and school may be the only place they can seek for help. If they are reject by schools they may go back on the street and cause more serious problems in their life. We want to be supportive to every students, not punish them by taking away the only opportunity they could learn and get help. Teachers and schools should teach students for appropriate behaviors not give up on them. It will help students correct their misbehaviors and be more engaged

    Students who consider that they have failed at school do not listen to any other person point of view although it is positive or helpful for them. This fact is due to the self rejects to change in order to preserve a consistent and organized world. The school is a place where self-esteem may be threatened by failure, rejection or limitations (Purkey, 1970). To avoid this, García (1982) suggests that teachers not only have to praise good results but also the methods, ideas or attitude. So, as she says, the teacher must be a "booster" instead of dedicating to just correct mistakes.…

    If they know that they are allowed to express themselves, they will be more likely to ask questions. This leads to better grades. Safety and wellbeing is a right that they should all have because they will not want to attend if they do not feel safe. Bullying, shootings, and just fights in general can all make children feel unsafe when attending school. This will also distract their focus.…

    According to ringing the bell for K-12 teacher tenure reform “tenure keeps bad teachers in front of classrooms sustaining a child’s education”. However, it is not always the teacher’s fault weather a student is failing or not it doesn’t matter if a teacher is good or bad, it is always the student’s decision to learn something from the class. In addition, the Rhee-forming P.C schools insist about how, “teacher tenure should be abolished because it makes it hard to remove a teacher with poor performance or who is guilty for wrong doing”. This may be true; however it is hard, but not impossible to fire them. Teachers who have been accused for low performance of wrongdoing do get fire!…

    Also taking away their free time because they were very talkative a day in class. Students will learn by example and this will modify their behavior. Positive and negative consequences will vary behavior but creating an intervention plan with bad students will help them understand and slowly monitor progress. During my field experience I have noticed that my cooperative teacher has taken away fun activities/ labs in class because of the way that students were behaving and this has shown a positive impact on their behavior in future classes because the teacher follows thru with what she says she will do if they do not behave. The ultimate goal of my classroom management is not to manage control of the class but to ensure that everyone meets my expectations in order for them to learn in an effective and supportive environment but to teach students self-discipline and to understand the rules and consequences of my classroom by acting accordingly.…

    They don’t want to be teased at for not understanding a subject or they are too shy to asked about with a huge class. It causes students to not pay attention and start getting low grades which is something the school educational system needs to improve on. It is also stressful for learning facilitators to manage so many kids in one day when in reality it should be a right amount of students instead of so much which effects the child…

    As this statement may be true, many students have difficulties in one or both areas. This system has what is called ‘Error Blindness” by Kathryn Schulz as it has shown errors with the students and the teachers who educate them as they are trying to provide the best instruction to meet their needs, but they continue to make mistakes as they are unable to meet the standards while administrating the test. In addition, as the student and teacher are able to recognize the problem in state standardize test, the government along with the administration team is not willing to see their wrong of the inability of the students achievements. In conclusion, teachers will always look at their wrong doing while instructing a student to achieve in state standardize test and a student will believe they are a failure as they are unable to use the tools learned to able to the state standardize…

    First, students often times fail because they receive no support from the school. Many times the teacher needs to give the students extra help or advice and the teacher doesn't won’t them that, or at least not enough help. Now some competitors may say that the teacher is always doing the best they can or that the student just needs to speak up and ask the teacher for help which may be true. The thing is that most of the time kids try their hardest and are still failing which the teacher clearly sees so then the teacher should be the one to take control of the problem. If they don't then what makes the teacher any more innocent.…

    I would also love a way to incorporate all families more into the classroom. Some students fall behind not because they are not capable but because their families do not care whether or not their child succeeds. This only starts a negative cyclical pattern. The child whose family does not care whether or not they miss class already has the disadvantage. First, they will get penalized for missing so many school days by either detention or in school suspension.…

    Today most households are split, headed by a single adult, sometimes being a bad environment; this bad environment can be detrimental to young children sometimes. That’s why the role of teachers can be so critical, because sometimes it’s all the students can find hope in or look up to. If parents could see this important factor in the development of their kids lives maybe more students will have that impactful teacher that changes them. This metaphor will open the eyes of those parents unaware and have them make sure the school, and teacher their child has is best for them. Students who read this metaphor will hopefully be more open minded, allowing the teacher into their lives.…

    Mine have little or no hope of finding success in school. Associate with and are reinforced by similar students. Behaviorally at-risk students are usually unable to maintain dignity through academic achievement, so they withdraw and act like they don’t care as a way to protect themselves. Punishments are given to these students often take them out of situations where they may learn responsibility, which is like telling a struggling batter he cannot participate in batting practice until he improves. In order to truly help this student we as a teacher need to rebuild their sense of dignity and hope at school.…
