Guiding Children’s Behavior

Guiding Strategies Observation

I noticed throughout the day, one of my co-teachers uses many guidance strategy tools in order to keep the day flowing smoothly. One day, we were all going to be getting ready to go outside and play, since it was sunny and warm. My co-teacher, who works with the preschoolers, begins to get her children ready to go outside first, since most of them are able to get dressed by themselves. One of the children begins to grab everyone’s boots and coats and throw them into the center of the rug. My co-teacher sees this, gets down at the child’s level, looks him in the eyes, and says, “Why don’t you grab your boots and coat instead? Your friends are able to find theirs when they have finished using the bathroom.” This child then said, “But I can’t find them!” So my co-teacher then said, “Well, have you checked in your bag? I think I see a sleeve sticking out.” The boy looked up at her, smiled, and went and found his boots and coat and proceeded to put them on. My co-teacher then proceeded to tell the children to sit down on the rug and wait for their names to be called to line up at the door to go outside. When one of the children tried to go before their name was called, my co-teacher explained to him, “I’m sorry, but I did not call your name yet. You need to wait until you hear your name before you may line up.”
One thing I really notice, if the use of clear positive directions, especially when it comes to transitions – this one in particular, where you have many children trying to get themselves ready to go outside and work off some energy, and some children can become anxious while waiting for their peers to finish getting themselves ready. She uses clear, positive directions in order to let the children know what their jobs are and what is expected of them in any…...

...Memorandum To: Mr. Thomas Stearns, Project Manager, International Guidance and Controls From: Date: October 2, 2012 RE: Software Project for CARV Command and Guidance System _____________________________________________________________________ I have recently received and reviewed your memorandum regarding your issue with the Confined Aquatic Recovery Vehicle project. I have considered three options and their ability to save your company as much money as possible while completing this project in a timely manner. The three alternatives I considered were to immediately invest in hardware, to stay on your current path with the software developments only or to wait and reevaluate your situation in five months. Each of these scenarios has their benefits and risks and I would like to explain each of these in more detail. The intangible costs of your company’s reputation have also been considered and evaluated given that this is a concern of yours and a damaged reputation can dramatically effect your success. Analysis and Results: I have used a descriptive decision tree to analyze your situation. Using a decision tree to evaluate and depict your issue allowed me to weigh the different possible outcomes with their associated consequences and probabilities. There are three separate attachments I will be referring to throughout the discussion of my results. I used the probabilities given in your memorandum with the various costs associated with each option and......

...ARTICLE # 1 School Guidance Counselors: Understanding their Role and Making the Most of the Relationship Whether your child is going through a difficult situation that is affecting his or her school work, or you want to ensure your college-bound teen stays on track, a school guidance counselor is a valuable resource for both you and your child. Perhaps your own interactions with school counselors were minimal as a student, or you are unsure what sort of guidance to expect as it relates to your child's academic experience. Today, the school guidance counselor plays an important role in students' educations, providing academic, personal and social, and post-graduate advisement services. Ultimately, your child's guidance counselor is dedicated to helping your child succeed. Some of the services that your child's guidance counselor may offer include the following: * Support groups to alleviate stress related to school (or for students whose parents have divorced, who have lost a loved one or suffered a similar tragedy). * One-on-one brief counseling sessions to address personal or social concerns. * Crisis intervention and support, possibly in collaboration with staff clinical psychologists. * Drug and alcohol intervention. * Orientation for new and transfer students and their parents. * Counseling for at-risk or frequently absent students. * Enrichment activities in the classroom (coordinating with teachers), such as problem solving,......

... During my attendance at Knox College thus far and seeing the guidance programme at work, my honest opinion regarding the guidance programme is that, it has help me a lot during my time at Knox College. It has done so by giving meaningful and aspirating advice to young students such as myself, that will be going out into todays’ society. I also love the way the guidance counselors are straight forward with their students, by not hiding or censoring anything from the students and putting what they have to say straight out on the table, then explaining it in full details to the students, so that they can understand what todays’ world is really like. One other aspect about the guidance programme that I’m really glad and grateful for, is how they are able to use real life situations as examples to show us young adults, yes “young adults”, that we should be careful of the choices and decisions we make because we are no longer children that need to be breast feed by our mothers, but as young adults who will bring change to our generation and future generations to come. I also view parents’ day to be very helpful for the students. It gives the parents a chance to see how their child/children behaves and conducts his/herself in a school environment. It also provides opportunities to see how well their child/children are progressing thus far in the school year. It now helps the students, by seeing how much their parents/guardian are committed to their......

Guidance and Counselling

...Guidance and Counselling plays integral part in both teaching and learning and must be given the necessary attention in all educational endeavors. Guidance and Counselling activities should be pivotal in our curriculum and also must be given the necessary attention in our educational set up to assist students. Guidance and Counselling must therefore be carefully designed and well executed at every level of the educational ladder especially at the basic school level. It is an open secret that students in Ghana face myriad of challenges which militate against their academic, career and socio personal progress in school due to the absence quality guidance and counseling services. Throwing more light on the concept of guidance, Miller F.W (1978) in his book Guidance principles and services sees guidance as all the activities engaged in by the School that are primarily aimed at assisting an individual to make, carry out adequate plans and to achieve satisfactory adjustment in all aspects of his daily life. Supporting the above definition, George and Cristiani (1986) in their book Counselling theory and Practice stated that Counselling is a relationship between a professionally trained counselor and an individual seeking help in gaining greater self-understanding, improved decision-making skills, behavior change and skills for problem solving. Reading through the above definitions of the concept of Guidance and Counselling over and over again makes me wonder whether our......

...Guidance In today’s society many children have grown up to become emotionally stable and successful whether they had one or two parents to show them to get through the unsteady difficulties life brings to all human beings. The problem is that none of these children are being raised right nor given good advice that will help them succeed in life. Countless people believe that if a child grows up in an unstructured household, then he or she will not be instilled with the right morals, ethics, and values, which is untrue. But, today, the youth in our society is being inspired by the ignorance we see on social media and it is not heading in the direction of righteousness. In the essay “Advice to Youth” by Mark Twain, he offers some seemly good advice to the young people. The advice he offers is that “all young people are given rules or advice to guide them as they grow up and to keep them on the right path to live a good life”. Mark Twain states “Always obey your parents, when they are present”. Yes, you should obey your parents, but if they are not present, you cannot solely rely on their standing orders to make the best decision. Of course you should be respectful to your superiors, but if those same people are not respectful to you then you cannot be expected to continue the gesture of being respectful towards them. With a statement like that, society presumes children are more likely to have behavior problems because they would not believe in showing respect toward......
