Student discipline is an issue that has been and continues to remain an issue in school settings. Managing classroom discipline is an obstacle that impedes the academic performance of some students. Because all students, even those students who are disruptive in the classroom, are required to be assessed on grade level, it is imperative that they are educated just as the remainder of the student population.
Teachers have the difficult task of educating students. Educating students encompasses many factors in addition to the delivery of content. Other responsibilities of a teacher include such tasks maintaining accurate records, ensuring that modifications are applied to students with special needs, sustaining contact with parents, and employing instructional and management strategies consistent with campus and district initiatives (Wolford, McGee, & Ritchey, 1996). In conjunction with all of these expectations, managing student discipline is yet another requirement of teachers. In the event of student misbehavior, an appropriate consequence is assigned to combat the inappropriate conduct. As the degree or frequency of the undesired conduct increases, the severity of the behavior intervention escalates. Historically, combating student misconduct has resulted in punitive measures that remove the student from the regular education setting.
Human behavior encompasses a wide spectrum of spectrum of events and activities that a human being exhibits in his lifetime. ( General Psychology, A Textbook for College Students, p.3). The Human Behavior had been based on series of events happened to him which triggers the apparent attitude of a person. Most man lives in either two-world; 1. The world-outside-the-work…...

Protected Industrial Action

...industrial action. Detail the procedures and discuss what they mean for employees and employers in relation to collective bargaining. Introduction On 1 July 2009, Australia’s workplace relations system changed. The Fair Work Act 2009 created a new legislative framework for workplace relations laws, to balance the needs of employees, the employers and the unions. A key objective of the Fair Work Act 2009 is achieving productivity and fairness in the workplace through the implementation of collective bargaining underpinned by simple good faith bargaining obligations and clear rules governing industrial action. This paper will detail the process and details of protected industrial action and what they mean for the employers and employees. Industrial Action Industrial action exerts pressure on the other party to the employment relationship with a view to gain a particular response from them. It can take a number of forms and reduces productivity at the workplace. Industrial action can take one or more of the following: go-slows, work-to-rule, boycotts, strikes, overtime bans, lock-outs and the performance of work by an employee in a manner different from that in which it is customarily performed. Industrial action is generally unlawful and prohibited unless it is protected industrial action. Employees who engage in industrial action which is not protected under the Fair Work Act can be exposed to penalties and disciplinary action. Protected Industrial Action......

Disciplinary Power

...Does Disciplinary Power enforce good or bad behaviour from students in York University Accommodation? Introduction When looking at Foucault’s concept of disciplinary power, we looked at our own expectations compared with our actual experiences of living in university run accommodation. With most students coming to university, it is the first time that they will live on ‘their own’, without the rules and restrictions that they had when living at home with their parents, therefore a degree of freedom and independence was expected. However, we noticed that our actions were restricted by the rules imposed on us due to the acceptance of the university run accommodation. From our own experiences, we witnessed students displaying bad behavioural characteristics through resistance. This led our group to investigate the impact that the rules have on students’ behaviours and the universities use of disciplinary power to ‘control’ students’ behaviour. We also wanted to determine from the student’s perspective, the impact these controls had on their behaviour. Methodology There has been a lot of research conducted to study the behaviours of students and their resistance to authority, however they were not written in the students’ perspective. By investigating the behaviours of students from their perspective, it allows us to have a more accurate account of their experiences and the impact that the university’s restrictions has on them. It also enables us to determine why students......

Inmate Disciplinary Concerning Mental Health

...ill peers. Arising from recent class action lawsuits challenging the quality of mental health care delivery in the nation’s prisons, prison mental health professionals have been called on to play an increasing role in the inmate disciplinary process. Referral questions include whether an inmate is competent to proceed with disciplinary proceedings and whether mental illness may have contributed to the rule violation. Prison mental health professionals participating in inmate disciplinary proceedings must therefore be familiar with relevant clinical, legal, and ethics issues. Little has been written in the psychiatric literature, however, examining this important role for prison mental health professionals. After first reviewing core legal and constitutional concepts, the author presents the results of a nationwide survey examining the role for mental health professionals in the inmate disciplinary process. To the author’s knowledge, this is the first study to provide a comprehensive review of this subject. Most prison systems have procedures for punishing prisoners who violate prison rules and for removing inmates from the general population for disciplinary or safety reasons. (For the purpose of this article, the terms “prisoner” and “inmate” will be used interchangeably. “Mental health” and “custody” are sometimes used to denote the mental health and custodial staffs of the prisons.) Serious offenses that bring about disciplinary action can result in significant......

...his or her actions and behaviors depending on the scenario or the type of situation at hand. Values are established and implanted in the early stages of life, but each individual person interprets his or her own values differently, and their actions and behaviors show how values are being perceived and displayed by the individual. People act off of their individual values that are embedded within them, and the actions and behaviors of individuals are a mere image reflection of his or her personal values. Dr. Pepper states “that diversity drives our success and helps us win in the marketplace” (Dr. Pepper, 2012). That is why Wal-Mart is such a number one leading diverse company that keeps growing and expanding services worldwide.

Genre Analysis: Citation and the Construction of Sub-Disciplinary Knowledge

...Analysis: Citation and the construction of sub-disciplinary knowledge Introduction In Academic Writing, Giltrow introduces a new idea regarding academic writing as a practice of knowledge-making. In the process of constructing knowledge, different disciplines show diversity in the styles of writing. (Giltrow, 2009). Giltrow’s new reasoning of genre- combination of situation and forms- provides researchers a way to analyze the similarities of documents in order to compare the disciplinary differences in styles of expression. The research paper is an important example of the research genres and a typical way of constructing new knowledge in academic discourse. According to Giltrow, successful writing depends upon readers’ recognition of features of genre. Therefore academic writers do not only need to make the results of their research public, but also persuasive. (Ken hyland, 1999) Citation, which is one of the most remarkable features appearing in scholarly articles, brings out a common ground shared by readers and writers to review the validity and novelty of both previous and current argument.(Ken hyland, 1999; Giltrow, 2009) The relationship between different citation forms and different disciplines has been investigated by many researchers. Hyland, who is a professor of applied linguistics, has done immense amounts of research in investigating the similarities and variability of citation in 8 disciplines. He suggests the disciplinary convention of citation usage and......

Child Disciplinary Practices

...Punishments can be divided into many different categories but in this study 2 different types of child punishment were used and researched, corporal punishment or punitive discipline known to many as spanking, inductive punishment. Child disciplinary practices are a necessary part of child rearing. They involve training and helping children to develop judgment, a sense of boundaries, self-control, self-sufficiency, and a positive social conduct. For the purposes of this study, two classifications of child disciplinary practices were explored: power-assertive and punitive discipline, and inductive discipline. Inductive discipline (e.g. reasoning) is believed to help children to develop empathic skills, appealing to the child's sense of reason and fairness. Conversely, punitive discipline (e.g. psychological aggression, corporal punishment) is believed to foster anger and unwillingness to comply, besides providing a model of aggression. Participants were children and adolescents from six public schools belonging to the catchment area of the primary care unit of the Hospital de Clínicas de Porto Alegre, Brazil, assessed between October of 2010 and March of 2011. An association was observed between the higher frequencies of power-assertive and punitive discipline and bullying perpetration in children and adolescents. All maternal power-assertive and punitive disciplines were overall statistically associated with bullying behavior by their children, as well as most of the paternal...

Affirmative Action

...Assignment: Affirmative Action Affirmative action is referred to as a deliberate effort to provide full and equal opportunities in employment, education, and other areas for women, minorities, and individuals belonging to other traditionally disadvantaged groups. As an issue in today’s society, affirmative action requires corporations, universities, and other organizations to establish programs designed to ensure that all applicants are treated fairly. It also places a burden of proof on the providers of opportunities to demonstrate that their granting of opportunities to white males is not discriminatory. To some extent, I do think slavery produced benefits for whites indirectly and passively. This happened through the process of human capital formation (20/20). Slaves made it possible for many whites to go into more rewarding occupations, gain increased skills, and to generate greater lifetime earnings for themselves and their descendants. After slavery, exclusions and discrimination allowed millions of Americans and immigrants to enter occupations with greater projections. In these ways, racism generated income and wealth that continues to appear in present-day recipients. Although discrimination still exists in the workplace today, I do think that it has a much less presence because of the implementation of affirmative action programs. Quite recently, there have been numerous debates regarding whether or not reparations for affirmative action programs should be......

Affirmative Action

...Affirmative Action Joshua Guest POS/110 August 22, 2010 Lisa Beiduk Affirmative Action Affirmative action was introduced in 1961 by President Kennedy as a form of redressing discrimination that was still present despite the civil rights laws and constitutional guarantees (Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia, 2007). Affirmative action aims at providing minorities and women equal rights to employment and education. Affirmative action was debatable since it began in the 1960’s and is still a very debatable topic today. Affirmative action requires increased attention and knowledge to understand both the pros and the cons of affirmative action and allow people to make educated decisions on affirmative action being beneficial or detrimental. Affirmative action is a set of public policies aimed at protecting the civil rights of underprivileged individuals of minority races or who are women. Affirmative action policies require that all state and local governments and all businesses associated with government funding must adopt the principles of affirmative action (Edwards III, Wattenberg, Lineberry, 2008). The principle action of affirmative action is the better treatment of members of minority groups and women. Many argued that affirmative action policies were violating the principle of the law which states all individuals are equal. The policies related to affirmative action needed some mending. While affirmative action was a......
