  • Run through the problems briefly
    Show how each problem links to the next in the order of: Broken family  poor in studies  ostracized by peers because he is weak in his studies and not contributing  makes him feel threatened and ‘friend-less’ causing him to turn violent

    How the other problems are build upon this root

    Give individual solutions to solve each of the segments and show how they are only the surface and how we have to tackle the root. Analogy of weeds. You can’t cut weeds, you have to uproot them.

    Give solutions to solve the root: Broken family
    -teach John how to cope with his family situation and not allow it to affect him aversely

    Future follow up (holistic thinking)

    Limitations to the solutions
  • Helping your kids cope with your divorce means providing stability in your home and attending to your children’s physical and emotional needs with a reassuring, positive attitude.
    I need both of you to stay involved in my life. Please write letters, make phone calls, and ask me lots of questions. When you don’t stay involved, I feel like I’m not important and that you don’t really love me
  • Thus in the case scenario, the possible solution to helps John would be being an authoritative teacher, allowing John to feel belong in the classroom and making school a home to him. Teachers have to be John's role model, teachers have to understand his family situation, be objective about it and to be a parent figure to John, caring and providing emotional support. Interaction between parents and teachers is very important too, teacher will have to be sensitive of what and how she is going to communicate with John's mother, perhaps, the teacher can bring across the concern of John's learning in school and how it may affects his upcoming PSLE as it is very logical of how both parents and teachers are concerns about their child/student academic especially facing a major examinations.
  • do not start off with a negative conversation about the child, as this may shows the teacher is merely just going to complain about her child and may lead to another side effects of the child getting scolded/caned
    focus on the main concerned about the child (academic – as both parent and teacher will be concerned about)

    If you are taking a pedagogical approach that raises questions, work to show parents the benefits of your methods and explain your reasoning to them; and
    Hold a parent meeting the first month of the school year in which you talk about your expectations for student achievement and behavior, leave time for questions, and if you don't know the answer promise to call soon with one.

  • Interaction between Family, School and Peers is Important and influential
    Thus, it is important for teacher to build a strong relationship and interaction with parents, holding parent’s teachers meeting every now and then. Making phone calls to show concerns or to bring out an issue and constantly updates the parents about the progress of the child.

  • … the key ingredient in a child being able to think well of self was love, unconditional love! Children, who were confirmed in the belief that they were loved unconditionally, were children who were able to think well of themselves, almost totally independent of accomplishment or material wealth. 

    Teachers should take this research very seriously. Many people feel that stress is a healthy part of growing; heralding that famous quote "what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger"?. This may be true, in small amounts. However, any teacher knows that students get sick right around and after a highly stressful time, such as midterms and finals. For students to succeed, they should be given control over their learning experience to help them to stay happy and healthy, which will help them to learn more (personal experience answer? Maybe when happier, more interested, more likely to take learning into your own hands). Too much stress is bad for (reasons above).
  • Refer to after school programmes to solve this
  • Articles about violent games (youtube – news clip about how gaming affects youth)

[2]
    18. 18.  To cater to John, special after school program is preferred. Scaffolding Approach (by Lev Vygotsky):  After school programs can include: Challenging and meaningful learning opportunities such as building of a solar-powered car or simple robotics.  Or activities like making new shapes of local delicacies; Ketupat, Rice dumpling, Aboling. (Scaffolding approach.)
    19. 19.  Backed by Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky  Piaget : [1]

    22. 22.  Cross reference with MOE’s After School directives [1]  Schools are increasingly tapping on their Parent Support Groups, alumni members and other stakeholders to help run programmes and provide mentorship to motivate their students. Schools work collaboratively with Family Service Centres (FSCs) and other Voluntary Welfare Organisations (VWOs) to conduct courses and engage the students and their families.  MOE has also worked with MCYS to increase the number of school-based Student Care Centres (SCCs) in primary schools to provide a conducive and safe learning environment for children who need supervision and support before and after school.  Present systems explained by MOE lacks specific lesson modules, “counseling approach”. For show from MOE?
