Film Ã¢â¬ÅDangerous MindsÃ¢â¬Â Essay
After watching the film Ã¢â¬Å"Dangerous Minds,Ã¢â¬ I was in awe that it had given me an Ã¢â¬ËextraÃ¢â¬â¢ motivation to thrive hard in finishing the course and eventually to become a well-respected educator in the near future. Lou Anne Johnson, who plays the main character in the story, turned out to be a beacon of light to her students when she became a full-time teacher to a group of hard-to-handle adolescents. Through her compassionate and caring attitude, Ms. Johnson was able to create an inviting atmosphere which is conducive to her studentÃ¢â¬â¢s learning. She gave hope in an almost hopeless situation. She used non-traditional methods in order to captivate their attention and put them into the right studying attitude. Lou Anne utilized a reward system in order to challenge her students; she made use of chocolate bars and free theme park tickets to catch her high school studentÃ¢â¬â¢s interest in learning which even caused them to learn how to use their library. She also presented their lessons in a manner her students can easily relate to. Ms. Johnson devised innovative lesson plans in order to maintain her classÃ¢â¬â¢s concentration on their topics. Although the administration was not in favor of this, she still insisted on continuing the new kind of approach in teaching. She proved that her studentsÃ¢â¬â¢ welfare is more important to her than the circulating policies of the school. The film demonstrated that everyone can teach, but not all can become a teacher. For a teacher not only teaches, but also inspires, leads and listens to the most intimate concern of her students. True enough, Lou Anne also tackled some of her pupilÃ¢â¬â¢s problems, wherein she made a home visit to his student (Raul) to inform his parents of how bright their son was in school. To his parentÃ¢â¬â¢s surprise, praises and upliftments were given by Ms. Johnson which changed his perspective in studying and even made him one of the achiever in their class. Without a doubt, the movie is a must watch. Not only to Education students but also to those who want to see the beauty in teaching. For being a teacher is definitely a noble profession. Kudos to all educators! Stand up and be proud!
