Special Education Blog
What are they thinking was recently read by moi. I knew a lot of the information because the University of South Alabama has did a great job teaching us(teachers) about the special education issues. I chose this article because I like to know why a student thinks a certain way. I think that is very important for teachers to know. For example, why does a student have anger problems? Should a teacher care? Well as Stone Cold would say, Hello Kitty yea. The article says anger is in response from "threats, insults, frustration, injustice, intentional harm, or conflict." A teacher should speak to their kiddos about why they might have gotten angry over something. Is it really just because the person next to you accidentally knock your brand new John Cena lunch box off of your desk or is it really something else? I've always found that when persons get mad over some things, it is really because of something else. Well I say, TEACHERS help students find out why Tim McGraw thinks they are angry all the time, and help the student face that problem. The article that I read also had a little chart in it that gave information on how students would react in certain moral situations and WHY they would react this or that way. Well, I think this important info to know because we need to not only know why students think something,why they get mad, but also why they do certain things. There are moral stages that persons go through. There is this one stage that a child will do or not do something because of the consequences he or she might face. So, as time goes on, they get into another stage. What is this stage you ask? Well in this stage a person will do or not do something because of the way it could effect someone else. They have begun to think of others, so in essence(I hope I used that word correctly) they are loving or not loving their neighbor. A teacher needs to be observing why they are acting certain ways. If you would like to know more you can personally look at this article and this chart at PS You must have an USA ID to get to this link. If you do not have one, contact your local doctor.
