Molly Carlson's curator insight, December 10, 2013 1:51 PM

This article is about how teachers are taught and encouraged to do things other than encourage their students and there is a lack of proper training. One study written about here says that they, “studied the curricula at the 122 undergraduate and graduate teaching programs and found that nearly all address classroom management, but that most do not do some comprehensively… ‘Instruction and practice on classroom management strategies are often scattered throughout the curriculum, rarely receiving the connected and concentrated focus they deserve.’” I find this very scary and worrisome that the schools are not relaying the management information to their students but rather throwing tidbits here and there. I feel like if classroom management is seen as such a huge issue in today’s schooling then why not put a greater emphasis on it when the students are in schools.

 

Another major part of this article is how encouraging students is not being emphasized to teachers. “According to this chart, education programs put much more emphasis on showing new teachers how to make rules and routines than on how to encourage students for a job well done.” I think it is the most important job of a teacher to encourage the students while they are learning so they can gain a lifelong love of learning. If the teachers are not encouraging their students, I feel like then the students are just going to feel forced into doing the work and not actually like doing it. The joy of learning and school will be taken away from a young age. I think that teachers should put a major emphasis on this encouragement, even if it means taking some emphasis away from rules.
