Students don't always understand that some actions send messages they may not intend - professors sometimes read actions of students as disrespectful, mean, or lazy when students have very different motivations for what they said or did in class. These tips are intended to help students find ways to create a strong presence in the classroom. These aren't just for keeping the instructors from getting annoyed though - they have a real foundation in creating a successful approach to the class.
Tonight, Vito and Vito talk about ISIS beheading American journalist James Foley, the Ferguson riots, race-baiting and the new developments in the Michael Brown case.
Then, the Vitos delve into a topic that is sure to make your hair raise. Liberalism, from high school to college has consumed the classroom. Professors and high school teachers alike have allowed liberal-bias to spread across academia, forcing kids to become indoctrinated with political views that are misguided, one-sided and wrong. Listen in as the Vitos, as well as other students, talk about how it is to be a conservative in a toxic environment.

Reverse Order was a producer’s pick for Season 7 of America’s Got Talent. After performing live on America’s Got Talent, Reverse Order had many doors open up for them. They toured multiple times with the program High School Nation performing to students during the school day. While at these schools, Reverse Order realized how common bullying was. Students would talk to the members in private or online seeking not just advice, but a friend to share with. Because of this Reverse Order decided to start “Reverse The Trend”, an anti-bullying program consisting of both a positive, uplifting concert, but also a presentation where the members speak from personal experience about how they were bullied, and how they overcame it. Since starting the program, Reverse Order has had an extremely rewarding experience making a positive impact on peoples lives.
As much as adults hate to admit it, the children in our midst are a mirror reflecting what we really are. We model the behavior that they imitate, and as much as parents love to blame the television, children really don't imitate TV characters as much as they imitate the parents in the home. Teachers are frustrated when unruly boys and girls disrupt the class, and at some point, teachers raise their voices and holler at the disruptive child, enabling the child to create the same kind of dysfunctional atmosphere of yelling that the child has experienced at home. Teachers find themselves resorting to verbal abuse and insults in order to control the behavior of the students in the class: children choose to be quiet out of fear of public humiliation, a tactic teachers choose to use in order to keep "order." But is this really a good learning environment when the children sit in silence out of fear of being insulted by the teacher? When parents use this control tactic, this is what they condition the child to respond to. So what happens when a teacher tries to model respectful, calm behavior in a classroom at a school where all the other adults are screaming insults at the children? Do we really believe threats, insults and yelling are good classroom management techniques? Journalist and educator Barbara Pement shares her experience at one private Florida school where many of the staff members and students are family members, and the classroom management techniques seem to mirror dysfunctional parenting techniques. When can screaming at a child be considered abusive behavior? Should a Principal set rules of conduct for teachers? Managing a classroom can be challenging, unless all the adults agree to be a model of respect and self control themselves. When the teacher screams, who is really out of control?
