I agree with you and i wish most students could. Unfortunately some children/teenagers will be irresponsible and grade they're teachers falsely. Students may do this because of: too much homework, Don't understand much of what the teacher is teaching them and cannot understand it no matter what, or too much work that they wouldn't want to do. As a student myself I sometimes don't like my teachers and I get angry sometimes. And unfortunately, I might do the same. Your first point is very true but. You're 2nd point is so so.
I think that is a good idea. For high school report cards, I think each teacher should have a "Interactions with class, Discipline and Organize" mark:
Interactions with class- How good they are at explaining
Discipline- Keeping the class under control
Organize- How good they are at organizing what to learn in class
Each section you can write a few positive and negative comments, so the teachers know what to improve. The most commonly mentioned comments from each class (for example, if a teacher was told they need to slow down more in explaining maths) would be on the report card, for the class the teacher teaches. Good question. :)
To be able to achieve proficiency, teachers must be also graded or evaluated according to their performances in order for them to develop in becoming more productive and professional. As students need to improve in their academic standing, they must cooperate with the teachers to balance the pursuit of the schools and universities.
Everyone has a teacher they dislike. It's someone who might pick on you, or someone that shouts a lot. Students do asociate the word hate when the topic of a good teacher occures. Because some teachers bring students to tears, and I'm not talking about Primary kids.
I know someone who got slapped by another student, around the face, and the teacher simply told her that she should of moved out the way. That's a bad teacher.
Of course, people say that students would only grade the teachers on wether they liked them or not. And of course they would, I wouldn't like a bad teacher.
I moved out of a science. I always payed attention, but the teacher was boring, and never stuck anything in your head. I was getting 5c in most tests. I moved class where the teacher would co-operate with the students. The teacher was funny, but strict. If you didn't do well enough on a test the teacher would make you repeat it. I got my a 6c on the first ever test with that teacher.
And a teacher that shouts all the time, and forces you to learn, and doesn't help you learn. Is a rubbish teacher, and I've had many of those.
Those teachers that students hate, are teachers that are hated for a reason. Students aren't getting good enough grades with those teachers, not because they're not working hard enough.
Their judgement is correct, those that they hate can't teach, but the others can.
YOU HAVE BEEN RANDOMLY SELECTED TO GET YOUR POST GRAMMATICALLY CORRECTED!!!
1) Mistake: "No they shouldn't and..."
Correction: "No[,] they shouldn't and..."
Explanation: Whenever you use the word "no" at the beginning of the sentence, and it is not being used as an adjective (i.e. "No man should..."), you must out a comma afterwards.
2) Mistake: "...shouldn't and this person..."
Correction: "shouldn't[,] and this person..."
Explanation: Flow issues. You need a breath between these two clauses.
3) Mistake: "...was to hard."
Correction: "...was to[o] hard."
Explanation: You used the wrong "too". "To" is generally is a preposition, and "too" is an adjective.
Note: Do not bash another person for their grammatical errors when you do the same. Down-vote this if you like. Just don't be hypocritical.
I don't know about American schools, but we have a system that at the end of the year, we all complete a survey about each teacher. We don't give a grade, but constructive criticism on their teaching. I know a lot of kids would not be sufficiently mature to take giving real grades seriously, especially with its anonymous nature. Having to write sentences usually deals with those students.
Any serious issues with a teacher should be dealt with during the issue, not on a report card weeks later.
Depends on the credit of the children. Think about if a student that is a trouble maker and gets punished so fourth will spitefully rate his teacher! The teacher job is now endanger because their doing their job and dishing out consequences. Theirs schools in neighbor hoods with kids that have awful ethics. Do we really trust them to grade the teacher therefore putting the teachers job on the line. I believe you could invoke a similar responsibility to a student in the class with a good grade and behavior. Therefore the judgement passed is fair and creditable
It doesn't that when you grade the teachers, you are teaching them. Now basically in this debate, the teachers must know the observations of the students on how they perform in class in such they need to identify the problems and mistakes. We are not trying to tell you that grading is teaching but rather grading is evaluating.
You are forgetting the global statement that everyone is not perfect. Definitely, teachers are also human that commit mistakes. In this action, they forget that they have mistaken the students. In this debate, the proposition is trying to tell us if it is really necessary to grade teachers so we must agree on that because:
1.) Teachers are sometimes forgetful (as for their age) so they won't notice their mistakes.
2.) In some instances, the students dislike their teachers. They need to be informed based on the performance that they should change in their teaching style.
the teachers are smarter than students are
Disagree. You have committed the fallacy of making hasty generalisations. I can give you a very famous example of how your statement is deeply fallacious. The legendary Cambridge philosopher and mathematician Bertrand Russell, considered his student Ludwig Wittgenstein (also another legendary Cambridge philosopher) to be smarter, if not as smart as him. This was why Russell pushed for Wittgenstein to obtain a PhD even without prior academic accolades to Wittgenstein's name. During a committee discussion, Wittgenstein famously declared to two of the panelists reviewing his PhD application. "Don't worry. I'm sure you'll never understand it." And indeed, the Tractus which Wittgenstein submitted became one of the most profound and revered works of philosophy, even till today.
