When students understand the material and are involved in their learning The demographics are quite different between the two schools. Taft is a much more diverse school than Yale: while almost 100% of students are one of two races, Taft includes 3 main races with many other races included. My teacher at Yale also made sure to comment on the fact that it is nearly impossible to tell that anyone at the school is any race besides white. The students at Taft are much more exposed to diversity than the students at Yale. Question 1 was discussed above, but he answers to the other two questions are interestingly different. My teacher from Taft, while he didn't get too personal with his students, was clear thathe did share some things like details of his children and grandchildren. In his opinion, it is important to share enough to where the students are able to relate to their teacher and see them as a person. However, my teacher from Yale hasthe opinion that possibly over-sharing can lead totoo much. If students become too friendly withtheir teachers, they expect favors. Perhaps thisis an effect of the fact that Yale is such a small school where everyone knows everything aboutthe people around them. Either way, the balance that teachers need to find is interesting to consider. As for Question 3, the teachers had almost similar answers. The difference appears to relate to the maturity level of the students they teach: at Taft, my teacher discussed level of attention and goals which are important for middle school students. In contrast, my teacher from Yale discussed understanding and involvement in learning, which relates to high school students. Hispanic: 39%
