Middle School Teachers

...Middle School Teachers Fatina Bunch EDU 623 Introduction to Teaching And Learning Instructor: Julie-Ann Adkins September 3, 2012 Middle School Teachers As a teacher, I feel that the middle school is my place. I must say that middle school is a different atmosphere for learning. The teachers who are fortunate enough to enter a student’s life during these critical years will do a lot more than provide an academic education they will also provide lifelong lessons to produce productive citizens. It takes a special talent and personality to connect with students in the middle school. The middle school concept has many different grade combinations ranging from grade five to grade nine, but to be classified as a middle school the combination must contain grade seven. Middle schools deal with students while they are living through their developmental years of their lives. During these years they do not really belong to a designated group, they are in the middle. They are not babies, toddlers, or adolescents they are sometimes referred to as “tweeners”. “Tweeners” is a term to identify the middle school student.(Manning 2000) Yes the title is unique just like the middle school student. During middle school the students are trying to understand who they are and where they should fit into their environment. So as a middle school teacher one would have to be patient, caring, and loving. The teacher has to be able to communicate with their students......

...选修6课文 1 A SHORT HISTORY OF WESTERN PAINTING Art is influenced by the customs and faith of a people. Styles in Western art have changed many times. As there are so many different styles of Western art, it would be impossible to describe all of them in such a short text. Consequently, this text will describe only the most important ones, starting from the sixth century AD. The Middle Ages (5th to the 15th century AD) During the Middle Ages, the main aim of painters was to represent religious themes. A conventional artist of this period was not interested in showing nature and people as they really were. A typical picture at this time was full of religious symbols, which created feeling of respect and love for God. But it was evident that ideas were changing in the 13th century when painters like Giotto di Bondone began to paint religious scenes in a more realistic way. The Renaissance (15th to 16th century) During the Renaissance, new ideas and values graduallv replaced those held in the Middle Ages.People began to concentrate less on religious themes and adopt a more humanistic attitude to life. At the same time painters returned to classical Roman and Greek ideas about art. They tried to paint people and nature as they really were. Rich people wanted to possess their own paintings, so they could decorate their superb palaces and great houses. They paid famous artists to paint pictures of themselves, their houses and possessions as well as...

Characteristics of Old and Middle English

...Characteristics of Old and Middle English Literature In many works from the Old English period, which was approximately between 600-1100, there were many distinguishing characteristics, which included heroism, a strict class system, religion, and teachings of moral behavior. Some different characteristics of Old English literature, which is a language derived from Old German, include a strong belief in fate in a very poetry dominated era. Many of the poems are called elegies of that time, which were sorrowful poems, such as “The Wanderer.” Another large characteristic of Old English literature is that of praising or honoring heroes of any kind, especially ones that prevail in battle. Some of these include the Cross from, “Dream of the Rood,” Beowulf from Beowulf, the lost hero in “The Wanderer,” Judith from “Judith,” and the biggest hero who is included in almost all poems and pieces of Old English literature, Christ. Many of these works express much religious faith having to do with Christianity. The Anglo-Saxon people also had a very strict class system. Going along with the faith they believed in the Great Chain of Being, which said that when God made the entire world each creature was put in their position. God made a monarchy and put the members of that high status position there for a reason and did the same for a person who was a slave, God made them that and put them in that position in society. The people on the top of the chain are supposed to help the......

The Cheating Scandal Rises in Park Middle School

...Kaung Wai Yan Kyaw Prof J Hurley English 151 RW 3/2/15 There are a few factors why cheating scandal started in Park Middle School. No Child Left Behind, Poverty, Superintendent Beverly Hall, Principle Waller and Damany Lewis are the main factors. Education systems, setting high standard for schools that are in an impoverished area, have made teachers as well as principle to use unlawful way to meet the systems target. NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND Law, sets a standard for every school in the states. The Law requires 58% of students passing math and 68% of students passing language art, or Parks would be classified as a “school in need of improvement” for sixth year and the state could shut down the school. According to Rachel Aviv, “the Law requires public-school student to be proficient in math and reading by 2014.” This is giving teachers pressure and making the teachers to use other forms of method such as cheating. On the other hand, if the school were to achieve this target, the teacher and the staff would be rewarded. This relates to quote from the Gold Star Junkies article ”Rewards or Punishments are not only ineffective at motivating people, but are counterproductive and they might lose interest in the activity” This is saying that if Education system trying to pressure and reward the teacher, It would be counterproductive and resulting in teacher cheating. Atlanta’s school superintendent, Beverly Hall, approached her job like a business executive. She pressure the......

Adoption in the Middle School Years

...Adoption in the Middle School Years Introduction To adopt a child means to take another’s child and raise him/her as one’s own. The process of adoption will have numerous rewarding experiences as well as difficult ones. When it comes to adopting a child in the middle school years, more challenges will present themselves than in any other age group. During this age, children begin to develop a sense of identity and begin to question their life experiences and their biological parents. School-aged children at this age go through numerous significant developmental changes. Much of their identity is derived from their family and peers in their lives. However, for adopted children, developing an identity is more complicated than non-adopted children. They have to assimilate two separate families and biological backgrounds as they explore how they fit in and the person they are growing up to be. Many of these children often face self-esteem issues and self-worth, and that is what makes them different from other children. A majority of adopted children have difficulty building social relationships with those around them and this can lead to depression, low academic performance, and even aggression. It is clear to see why adopting a younger child would be much simpler, but older children need homes, as well. Research 1 For many decades, adoption has become a highly successful solution for many adults who cannot provide for their children. Although adoption is viewed as a......

Angel in Middle School

...An Angel in Middle school When people mention the word “angel”, they are capitalized may imagine a beautiful one that is very pure, warm and helpful. People might also say that if she is unreal and abstract that they don’t exist. I agreed with their opinion until I entered middle school and met an angel. I entered middle school when I was twelve. I didn’t know everything except playing games like in primary school. For example, every morning I got up and then washed my face and brushed my teeth, but never cared about my ugly hair style, which was short and smooth almost like as a monk. I didn’t care about my appearance and my uniform which always wrinkled. In a word, I was a mess, and I looked terrible. The first day I came to class, I was almost late. There was no chair for me to sit on, so I had to take one from other classroom. After I moved the chair to my classroom and put it down, someone giggled. I looked at her and then I was shocked. She was so beautiful with a warm smile, and she would be my deskmate for the next three years. I didn’t know the feeling when I looked at her, but I know it already now. It is love, I have a blind love to her at first sight. She started becoming the first important person in my life. After that, I behaved like a gentleman. I improved my hairstyle and combed it every morning. My clothes would be spread out before I got it up. Everything was improving exterior. However, I became shy when I sat beside her. I especially avoided eye......
