“That teachers who aim to control students’ behavior—rather than helping

an essential skill for long-term success.”
After reading the article, this is the quote I agree with the most. Just like in my past discussion I stated that teachers cannot always control their students, but they can control their classroom environment. I feel like if a teacher is constantly putting their two senses in, it does not allow for natural cause and effect to occur. For example, I feel like a huge part of life is learning through affects (positive or negative). In the case of a classroom, as students get older a teacher must wean back and prepare their students for their futures. Through this a teacher can only push a child so much. Such as, if a teacher has tried their best given a student all the material and gone extra efforts to help them pass and understand the material, but they do not do their homework, the only way a student will learn their consequence is by their grade dropping. In other cases, a child may not learn by being told things continually, for example if a child was being mean to his friends and a teacher continually said “nice words please” or gave the child a warning, the teacher has been put effort in. The turning point to help the child learn may just be his friends not wanting to be around him because he is no longer nice company. Through this the child will learn that they must treat their friends with respect. Having a child learn by themselves can help create a sense of independence and help them learn self-control. Also, through these formative years a child can begin to create their own morals and decide by themselves what is right and wrong to them. Just like a parent, a teacher can only do so much, the child will make their choices whether there are consequences on the line. Maybe allowing a child to learn for themselves is the only way they will truly understand what is being taught.
Question: DO you agree with letting a child learn through cause and effect? Why or why not? What is a different approach you would take as an educator?

“…Those advances in psychology often go out the window once a difficult kid starts acting out. Teachers and administrators still rely overwhelmingly
on outdated systems of reward and punishment,” P.7, What if Everything You Knew About Disciplining Kids Was Wrong?
I chose this quote as its something I have always thought about while continuing in education. A lot of the recent development towards including children with disabilities are well, but there are still problems children are facing. I personally don’t like the system of having prizes for good behaviors – it seems to remove the whole fact of accommodating for children that can’t control outbreaks. Children with disabilities can’t change how they feel, and keeping systems like these aren’t doing anything to improve school for them but instead are punishing their behavior. I don’t think there should be a push to find a “fix” or solution to this problem for children but instead us as teachers change how we act, when they act. Like how it was said in the reading, once Will was allowed to express that emotion with a guideline of not hurting someone, he calmed down over time. By doing this, it showed how once he was able to do something without being punished – he didn’t have a reason to feel like he needed to defend himself like before. Of course it may not be the same for every student, but I don’t like how some children, especially those with disabilities, are pushed to suppress their emotions. Instead of getting ready to punish a student and telling them what they did wrong, teachers should be able to talk to them and asked why they acted a certain way and what can be done to help them.
One thing in this reading that I also think is important to mention is the fact that Black children are more susceptible to receiving harsher punishment that any other race – which obviously shows how a majority of the educational systems and the professionals in it now can still be racist and prejudice towards Black children.
One question I’d like to ask is, what systems would you put in place to help a student that is misbehaving?
