Student safety on field trips
Do you have a responsibility to limit their rights?
·Identify the rights and
responsibilities you will have as a teacher. How will your responsibilities as a teacher
influence the rights of your students? Is it fair to infringe on students' rights for the sake of
the learning environment? Why or why not? Describe your own personal experience
where a teacher's responsibilities limited the students' rights. How were you involved?
Then describe a situation in which the students’ rights might override a teacher's
responsibility to maintain a safe learning environment.
Absolutely! Teachers have the right and the responsibility to limit students' rights.
Teachers need to keep students safe. Therefore, they limit the area in which students are allowed to be. One student I had disobeyed me and jumped down some stairs. She sprained her ankle.
Then there was an ADHD student on a field trip to a nearby major city. His medication had worn off and he threw a pop can from the window of the bus. The can hit a passing car, which almost resulted in a law suit against the school.
The only situation where a student's rights would overide the teacher's responsibility might involve the use of a cell phone to report a crime or major problem.
do u know where i can find more info it has to be 700 wrods atleast
You might also want to consider the learning envrionment of a special needs student in your answer. To what extent can you limit a special needs student's learning experience?
Out side of your answer you might like to consider what is meant by a 'safe learning environment'. Can you really have a safe learning environment that is based around a dictionary definition of 'Safe' as 'free from danger or the risk of harm'.
