- Teaching Race Explicitly in the Classroom Many literacy experts point out the fact that at the college level, black students who attend all-black schools tend to be more successful than those attending predominantly white schools. Even though these schools often lack resources and financial stability, they nonetheless produce more high achieving black students than predominantly white schools. For instance, according to Fleming, black students attending Historically Black Universities and Colleges (HBUC) have higher graduation rates than those attending predominately white institutions....

A minority group is "a group typically numerically inferior to the rest of the population state... (A.J. Jongman and A.P.... [tags: Teaching Education]

- The present day educational system has perpetuated the banking concept, a concept coined by Brazilian educator Paulo Freire, and allowed schools to become an authoritarian entity rather than one that exhibits a foundation for critical learning. Teachers are perceived as dictators and “sole creators of knowledge”(racial memories 218/5) and students are expected to be receptive bodies that memorize information and then regurgitate it. Students progress, in sum, has become a gain to produce high test scores instead of the exploration of intellectual freedom.... [tags: Education Reform Essays, Historic Conversations]

- ... How is it considered fair to offer scholarships based on something that she cannot control. It is valid to have specific criteria needed for a scholarship. But if it something utterly uncontrollable, is it not offering an unfair disadvantage to students who are white. This is not equality, this is special treatment. Many people take a different stance on this particular subject. They claim that people may be a first generation college student, struggling to “pay the bills”. The problem with this idea is that there are many other white families that are in the same situation.... [tags: Racism, Race, White people, Black people]

- In “Patrolling Racial Borders: Discrimination Against Mixed Race People," Heather Dalmage provides a brief history of and social context for the discrimination against multiracial people in the United States. She identifies people who discriminate against multiracial people as “border patrollers," or people who believe the color line is fixed and permanent, and thus they have the ability to discern between “themselves” and “others”. She goes on to identify broad areas of everyday life in which multicultural children are “patrolled” and face discrimination, through the patrolling of the child’s physicality, linguistics, interaction with embers of the out-group, geographies, and cultural capit...

- There are many things that can define a course from the teacher, the peers in the class, and most importantly the information the class is taught on. Many times with school up until college you are stuck taking a class and do not have the option of picking the teacher in which you would like to learn from. In college I love that we can select the times and teacher based on what is offered, it lets a person create relationships with professors and better their education. However, it may have its benefits, college still requires you to take classes you do not want to take.... [tags: United States, Race, Racism, White American]

- ... There are many examples in pop culture of white celebrities who use their knowledge of the black community to their benefit. They copy the physical features of people of color or styles of dress, language, and dance. Yet they do not fight against the society that celebrates these features in them, but rejects them in the people from which they took them. Using someone culture when you will not defend the people of that culture is racist. Also knowing black people personally does not mean that you are not racist....

- Introduction Electronic devices, particularly cellular phones have become a mainstay in our society. Cell phones and other forms of hand-held digital technology have made their way into the classroom and has become a common accessory among high school and middle school students. By the time a student is in middle school, it is likely that they already own a cell phone and carry it with them wherever they go (Lucking, Edwin & Mervyn, 2010). As the technological capabilities of these hand held devices increase and the upsurge of their popularity continues, educators race to establish protocol for their use at school (Charles, 2012)....

- There are commonly believed to be four major races on Earth, but over the course of history, one race almost always holds power and privilege. Race is a completely socio-historical concept that society has created based on the way that people look, meaning that the power and privilege is based on merely perceived differences. Since the “discovery” of America, racism has been a prevalent part of society. Whether it be the slaughter of the native people, the enslavement of Africans, the resistance toward the civil rights movement, or even the ongoing issues of police brutality, it is undeniable that Americans have used power and privilege to oppress other groups, most often racially....

- Classroom Management Plan Theoretical Introduction Philosophy of Classroom Management My personal belief is that teaching is not just the profession of spitting out information to students that they in turn regurgitate to me.

They include the following factors: classroom environment, expectations and procedures, student-teacher relationships, and active learning.... [tags: Classroom Management Plan 2014]
