A new student in your class has been living in foster care and tends to isolate herself from the other students. Based on what you know of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, you understand that the student will need to feel that she belongs in your class before she can attempt to learn the content you are teaching. Describe three strategies you could utilize to make this student feel like a valued member of your classroom community.

As a teacher, you have the potential to alter a student’s academic trajectory by how you deal with cheating/plagiarism/dishonesty in your classroom. Discuss two strategies that would address these issues in your classroom.

“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” (Proverbs 17:22) The good medicine should be the spirit we bring to the classroom. Working in a Title I school in inner-city Phoenix for nearly a decade taught me many things. However, my problems outside the classroom needed to stay outside the classroom. My students were never going to be more excited about the content than I was displaying. Confidence and a cheerful heart is essential in class as the teacher. Would you agree? Why or why not?

, Just like we read in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs we have seen the importance of students feeling a sense of belonging and support from the teacher and the classroom environment. The sense of belonging helps a student to focus and really dive deep into what is happening in the classroom (Mcleod, 2022). The sense of belonging creates a safe place in the classroom for the student to see that even when things may be tough academically or in their personal life they have a place in your classroom. The first thing to allow students to make them feel valued in the classroom would be setting ground rules. Being able to set ground rules in the classroom will start forming healthy habits and show the student that they have a chance to show the value they have within themselves and within the classroom. The second strategy would be journaling and a read-aloud. This strategy would allow students to write down anything they think of or are feeling and allow the student to share their thoughts with the class (as an open discussion). Lastly, I would use any SEL (social and emotional learning) strategies I could in my classroom to shape the environment to fit each student’s individual and unique personality. Reference: McLeod, S.

5. (75 words) I feel as though it is important to address cheating and plagiarism in the classroom because it can lead to bad habits and a decline in academic achievement. I would address these issues in my classroom by fully and thoroughly explaining what plagiarizing and cheating entails (Ormrod & Jones, 2022). It is not black and white, rather it is a gray area in which some students may not even know they are doing it. I would provide clear examples, show videos and have students practice some worksheets pertaining to pointing out plagiarism. Once they have a clear understanding, it will be easier for them to recognize it within their work. Students tend to cheat when they feel overwhelmed or if they have the sense that the assignment is “impossible” to complete. I also would make sure the students have enough support and resources to complete assignments so that they don’t turn to cheating. (Ormrod & Jones, 2022).I would provide sources, outlines, clear instructions and materials so they are fully prepared.

I would love to hear your thoughts on this verse in light of our second DQ this week. Again, this is optional participation that will count as a post if it is substantial. Remember substantive posts are 75 words or more.
The Lord detests the use of dishonest scales, but he delights in accurate weights. Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. Honesty guides good people; dishonesty destroys treacherous people.

As a future teacher, what are some ways that you can model honesty and integrity in the classroom?
