Transcript of Your Ethical Self

More than anything, students long to fit in and be accepted. When acceptance does not come easily, students try harder and some of these actions can fall outside the bounds of acceptable behavior. Consideration Helpfulness Students in school don't think of helpfulness in
grand terms, such as being successful in life. They
see it in small personal things. Helping a child put on a coat Explaining things privately Cheerfully explaining answers to questions Helping in troubling situations Fairness When dealing with others we should try to
"Understand them deeply as individuals, the way we would want to be understood, and then to treat them in terms of understanding." - Stephen R. Covey Fairness means treating students: In accordance with the given circumstance. In accordance to what we know about the students background and predispositions. Your Ethical Self: How Your Virtue Leads to Trust Honesty Kindness Verbal honesty means three things:
Absence of deceit
Keeping promises
Telling things as they actually are "The Golden Rule" You can't go wrong if you treat students with courtesy and respect. Treat them how you would like them to treat you. Acknowledge them
Call them by name
Chat with them
Be polite
Smile *Remember that many acts of kindness go into building trust but a single unkind act can destroy it. Reasons for student "misbehavior"
1. students hate boredom & want to have fun.
2. students want to maintain their personal dignity. In the classroom...
Talk, laugh, and move about.
Give students some power,
control & allow self-direction. Do not intrude, without invitation into your
students inner lives, without being invited.
Accept them as they are. Avoidance of failure is a powerful human motive.
No one wants to look stupid, and your students
will avoid situations where they might. Why Ethics? Ethics leads to trust, which is necessary for synergy. Students want teachers to be caring, helpful,
compassionate, understanding and loyal.
They want to believe that you are on their
side & that you will support them. It does no good to tell students how ethical you are. They must see it for themselves, in everything you say and do. Patience How Trust is Built, Maintained & Lost "the emotional bank account" FAITH This bank account holds trust on deposit. You must create a separate account for each one of your students. Show interest in them Tell them you are glad they are
in your class Mention progress Understand that students learn and work at different speeds. "Impatience erodes trust
while patience builds it." Only you can make deposits and withdrawals in these accounts. The account balance grows as you add deposits:
speak in a friendly manner
show kindness, consideration, helpfulness or
patience. The balance in a students "account" is the amount of trust they have for you at any given time. A high balance means you are able to communicate well & work together easily. when you have high account balances with all of your students, you have enough trust in you classroom for synergy to occur. trust is lost much easier than it is gained. two or three unethical moves on your part will wipe out the
balance that took you weeks to build.
