How can you avoid presenting a negative model?
One way that I can avoid presenting a negative model to my students is to treat everyone the same. I need to make sure I do not play favorites to one student over another. I also need to find a way t relate to my students in a positive manner. It is important that I have a good attitude when entering the classroom. I need to be honest with my students and if I make promises it is important that I keep them in order to earn their trust. i will also make sure that I am prepared for teaching each and every day so that my students see how much I take teaching seriously.
How will you make sure you are making ethical decisions in preparing and conducting courses?
One way I can make sure that I am making ethical decisions is to treat all of my students in the same way. If one students asks for a chance to retake a test or quiz and I allow it, then I need to make sure that option is available to everyone and not just that one student. It is important that my students see that i do not treat some students differently than others. I will also make sure that I never accept bribes in order to provide a student with a good grade.
What strategies will you use to avoid unethical behavior toward students?
I will treat each and every student with respect. I will not engage in favoritism with any of my students. I will listen to what my students have to tell me, and keep that information confidential. If I see a student who is cheating I will address it with the student right away so my students understand that this is something that will not be tolerated. I will provide my students with a syllabus that outlines rules and expectations of the course. I will also make sure to address any kind of harassment or discrimination issues in my classroom right away in order to provide a safe and respectful classroom.
