CERTAIN POSITIONS DEMAND RESPECT SIMPLY BECAUSE OF THE NATURE OF THE POSITION. A TEACHER, HOWEVER, CANNOT EXPECT TO BE RESPECTED SIMPLY BECAUSE HE OR SHE IS ‘’ THE TEACHER’’. LIST DOWN SEVERAL POINTS FOR A TEACHER TO EARN RESPECT FROM HIS OR HER STUDENT. All educator should have respect for student at all times. It is to earn respect from their student to teacher. Mutual respect between any human beings is important. And we understand that there might be differing cultural expectations when it comes to respecting teachers. But in my opinion, the important for teacher to think about whether and why they deserve respect automatically. We expect our students to be respectful to us and we should in turn be respectful to them at all times. This isn’t always easy, but you must always handle interaction with student in a positive manner. Firstly, respect your student. Don’t talk down to student, model mutual respect. Don’t have double standards. Give what you did like to get back. Know every child’s story and treat each as an individual. Cater for different learning preferences, strengths and weakness. Teacher should never berate or embarrass a student. It is best to address them separately from the class. The key is talk to them, not down to them. It is for sure the teacher understand that the student. If they can’t do something do not force them. It will make they know the teacher as a kind person and can help them to move on.

Next, have a class agreement, not top-down rules. Ask student what helps them learn and what hinders learning. Use that as a basis for establishing an essential agreement as to how the class will run and what behaviours will be evident. Have everyone sing it. Put it up on the wall. Refer to it constantly. From this idea will make the teaching progress more creative and interesting. Do not do what the student…...

...Bsma Tolfree Unit 1 Individual Project Scientific Method May 1, 2011 OBSERVATION: During the winter, you spread salt daily on your driveway to melt the snow. In the springtime, when the lawn begins to grow, you notice that there is no grass growing for about three inches from the driveway. Furthermore, the grass seems to be growing more slowly up to about one foot from the driveway. QUESTION: I wonder if the grass growth is inhibited by salt? INTRODUCTION: Salt is a chemical compound (NaCl), or Sodium Chloride. Sodium Chloride has many uses in everyday life, such as in our bodies, in our food, and on our road ways. Having two elements, Sodium and Chloride, each have a number of jobs to do in our bodies. Salt is found in many of our foods naturally, from fish to vegetables, as well as being used for cooking and at the table. Also salt is used all over the world when it snows to prevent slip and falls and car accidents by it being sprinkled on sidewalks and road ways to melt the ice. When salt hits water or ice it lowers the freezing point in an effect known as freezing point depression and melting it in the process. According to (greenergreengrass.com) salt can also affect the pH of soil and can create an unsuitable environment for grass and plants to grow. HYPOTHESIS: The grass that gets exposed to more salt will not grow as much as the grass that gets exposed to little or no salt. PREDICTION: If the grass is exposed to salt then it will not grow as fast......

...Observation The student is considered a novice as an observer of children. The student observes children to gain practice and understanding in child development. Students have an obligation to protect children and respect school personnel. Observers are usually visitors in the classroom. The observer must keep in mind that they are a disruption to the regular processes in the classroom and they should respect the classroom teacher’s direction. The protection of the child’s rights in any type of child study is important. Regardless of the procedure used to collect information, the child’s protection is paramount. The child must not come to any harm (physical or mental) through participation in the observation process. Confidentiality must be utilized at all times. Talking about children and families with others outside of class or with the classroom teacher is prohibited. Please use fictitious names in written reports. Any concerns about a child’s safety should be addressed immediately with the classroom teacher or other responsible party. Observation tells us about children’s behavior – what they are doing. If we want to understand children’s development in school settings then we should observe them in those settings. Observation that takes place in a natural environment is referred to as naturalistic observation. Qualities of a Good Observer: · Recognize personal bias and preconceived assumptions about children. · Stay focus for a long......

...Every day, people all over the world travel to different places out side of his or her home. He or she will encounter many different types of people and different experiences. When this happens, the opportunity becomes available to observe his or her surroundings. I wanted to do the observation experiment at a place I find to be very interesting, it was a Tattoo Shop. This was a place that I felt was on the same standers as a mall and it was also a place that I visited and thought that it would be interesting to observe the people in my surroundings. At the tattoo shop, people of all walks of life come for different personal reasons. Some people came to get a tattoo because they lost a love one and wanted to honor his or her memory. Some came to get a tattoo because he or she loved the art, and some people were there just to support some one else. As I sat in my chair doing this observation, I listen to a young lady who came to the Shop with her friend. She stated that she was there to get a sleeve done on her arm. If you are unfamiliar with what a sleeve is, it is when a person gets a tattoo that goes from the shoulder area down to the wrist area of the arm. This young lady was there getting something that she felt meant something to her. She was getting a picture of a clock with the saying “Only Time Will Tell” drawn on her arm. As I listen to her talk with her friend I could see the sadness in her eyes as she tried to joke with her party. After she was serviced, the......

...FIELDNOTES: A GUIDE FOR RESEARCHERS Fieldnotes: "The observations written by a researcher at a research site, during an interview, and throughout the data collection process" (FW, 501). I. REQUIREMENTS Much of the hard work of ethnography happens in the observations and fieldnotes. At times, you’ll feel as though it’s tedious to take fieldnotes; however, taking detailed notes gives you a set of data from which to look for patterns and ideas. In order to complete your field notes successfully, you will need to: General Requirements Spend at least one hour a week observing your community; While you’re observing, write substantial (3+ pages of observation weekly) field notes. Take time after you’ve observed to write meaningful, thoughtful questions and reflections on the “analysis” side of your double-entry field notes (explained in “Strategies” below). Date each entry, and number each page (This is vital! If you fail to date and number each page of your fieldnotes, you will be lost when it comes time to write up your research and prepare your Research Portfolio for the Celebration of Student Writing) Write legibly enough that someone else could read them. Keep them organized (in your Research Portfolio, among your artifacts and other fieldwork) Taking good fieldnotes requires that to divide the process into two phases: (1) notes you take while you are in the field (Observational/Descriptive fieldnotes) and (2) notes you take after you......

...Day Care: Preschool: 4 yrs old, one 5yr old. I was placed to observe the Preschool 4 year olds during my clinical observation at the Daycare. Stages of Development: Eric Erikson: Initiative vs. Guilt. During this stage the child are focused on purpose, exploration and egocentric ideas and speech. During this period the preschooler experiences a desire to copy adults around them, take initiative in play situations, make up stories using barbies, toy phones, cars, playing roles like “Ninja” and “Pirate” They use imagination and fantasy during play and use parallel play. The also explore the world by asking “WHY” and “HOW” to understand new things.The preschoolers all become involved in the oedipal struggle. If they get frustrated over desires and goals they experience guilt. If they are unsuccessful at achieving a goal they become aggressive and may act is disapproving behavior. Piaget: Preoperational- Egocentric During this stage the child is selfish and believes they are the center of attention. They begin to feel that what they say is most important and all attention should be focused towards them. They often speak when others are speaking and get frustrated when they are not listened to. In the classroom, I observed many of these characteristics of the preschooler. Upon my arrival they all ran to me and all wanted me to themselves, offering their choice of play. They all agreed to give me “Breakfast” where I sat at a play kitchen table in their......

...Matttt robins Section 1: Observations I observed a child from Early Morning Learning Center at Gateway Community College. There, I observed my student Jerome for a total of five hours in 3 days. The Early Morning Learning Center at Gateway consisted of nineteen children ranging from ages 3 to 5 years old. The center had five adult workers whose job it was to watch and help the children. The days I observed the children were either in the classroom or on the playground. The student I chose to observe was an Africana American by the name of Jerome. As I arrived to the Early Morning Learning center the kids were out playing on around the playground. Jerome was riding one of the tricycles along with a couple other classmates. While riding away from other class mates Jerome yells “you can’t get me”. After Jerome places the tricycle down, a kid playing basketball asked Jerome to play saying “do you want to play”? Jerome begins playing with the other children. The children begin taking turns putting the ball in the basket. Before, placing the ball in the basket Jerome would jump. After a few times, Jerome took the ball to the wall and started getting a running start to put the ball in the basket. Then he began counting to three before taking his running start to put the ball in the basket. Jerome did this another four times. While playing basketball, the children were lining up back to back to see who’s the taller or tallest. When it came down to Jerome and another......

...problems in later stages and create a sense of fixation. Children develop in different stages and in different ways. A method that has been used to explore these developmental milestones is observation. Observations involve watching a child for sometime in order to understand how he or she perceives and interacts with the world. attributes physically, cognitively and socially of two children, one male and one female, ages five and ten, respectively. This writer will identify the socio-economic status (SEC), age, gender, ethnic background, and family demographics of each of these children. The two children this writer has chosen come from similar living situations (i.e. they both live with single mothers), but have vast differences in their physical, cognitive, and social development. This paper will examine Erik Erikson's Eight Psychosocial Stages as explained by Dacey, Fiore, Travers (2009) in an effort to explain the noticeable differences in the two children that this writer has chosen to observe. These two children were chosen because they are both being raised in a single parent household, which is something that this writer can relate to, as this writer is a single mother. This writer will also explore the Cognitive Development Approach theories of Jean Piaget and Albert Bandura's Social Cognitive Learning in an attempt to further explain the significant differences in these two children. Childhood Observation Theories on Human Development Many psychologists have......

Observation Behavior in Children

...For my observation, I observed a Preschool classroom during the mid-day. There were 5 children in the class all together, and two teachers. two children were sitting with a teacher coloring and pointing to images and the other three were playing while the teacher supervised. The children were preschool aged and seemed to all be around 2-4 years of age. The three children that were playing were the ones I focused on, specifically a boy, let’s call him John. John was sitting with one girl and another boy playing with two toy cars and some bricks built up like a tower. John seemed to be the leader of the group. He was a little bigger than both children and his communication skills seemed to be far more advanced. While the other children used smaller words to make sentences such as saying “no” or “don’t do that” or “go here” John used more complex sentences. He seemed to almost be teaching the other two children and would expand their sentences. Such as when the little girl said “There” John would say “it goes over here” referring to one of the toy cars. Or if one of the children did something John did not approve of he would say, “no don’t do that, thats not how its suppose to go” Because of this, and due to the fact that there really wasn’t anything else going on I decided to focus in on John and count the number of complex sentences he spoke over a period of fifteen minutes. Due to his language skills, I defined complex sentences as anything he said with 5 or more words......

...nations try to leverage arithmetic and reading skills by setting up new skills to acquire such three-digit numbers or reading 50 words per minute out loud. In addition to this important knowledge, countries are also to eager to provide children with moral values regarding how to be good citizens. Schooling methods and curriculum serve as foundations to convey nations’ beliefs, values and cultural standards. Educational curriculum varies by nation, by community, and by school subject. For instance, in the United States, curricula depends on when, how, and whether second-language or religious instructions occur. There is no educational unity in North America, which makes difficult to reach the reading, writing and mathematics standards. Moreover, there is another form of curriculum that has been popular among school districts: the hidden curriculum. According to the Blackwell Dictionary of Sociology, "Hidden curriculum is a concept used to describe the often unarticulated and unacknowledged things that students are taught in school." In other words, hidden curriculum refers to the unintended or implicit values cultivated in the practices exercised in the classroom and educational institutions through the application of the curriculum. For example, children are often rewarded not only for their academic achievements in one specific subject, but also based on their involvement in the teaching subject or their enthusiasm to learn. In this way education imparts not only formal......
