The Ron Clark Story

  1. 1. The story begins with Ron Clark leaving his small hometown in North Carolina, hoping that he can also make it big teaching in the big city. Carrying high hopes and big dreams, Clark embraced the busy life in the city, working as a waiter for a restaurant as a part time job. He was able to land in Harlem Public School despite discouragements from friends and colleagues, thinking that he is too weak and too nice for the 6th grader students who belong to the bottom group of the graduating students. Reluctant that Clark can make it he was given the task of improving the class score and passed the State Examination. Clark endures the rudeness of the class on the first time and suffers even worst as the day passed but Clark never gives up on them. Instead, he tries to know his students better by visiting them at their home. One of them was Shameika Wallace, a 12 year old girl trying to attend school while helping to raise her brothers and sisters. With that, he sees the reasons why his students acted that way they did not get much attention and importance from their family. Since then, he treats his students as his family and works beyond and above his profession to reach out to them.
  2. 2. He created distinctive rules in his classrooms and uses contemporary teaching methods and techniques suited for his students. He tries to renovate the classroom and make it more possible for his students to learn. He gives incentives to them and makes them feel that they can trust him. But despite all these efforts, the students have not appreciated a single act from him. That is the time that he almost gives up. Despite having dismay spirit, Ron Clark still believes in the ability and talent of the each student in his class. He has in his mind the thought that the kids can do more than what he is asking them to do. With that in mind, he tried to recharge and revive his strength by exploring New York City with a friend and go back to school with a rejuvenated purpose of helping his students dream big and make it real. Students think that Ron Clark will not show up again, just like their previous teachers. Much to their surprised, Clark comes back with better and brighter ideas on how he can “fit in”. He tries to build rapport by playing with them and teaching them on his spare time. He gave exciting challenges to promote silence and good study habits. He applies different teaching strategies and think of how the kids can best acquire learning.
  3. 3. He intensified his incentive scheme and make sure that kids work are appreciated. He even tries to do chores for his students just to make sure that they will do their home works. Some parents get mad at him, assuming that he is already concerns with their private interest, but he always address the need of these kids to have time to study to achieve their highest potentials. With all these and more, he gradually sees the academic improvement of the class and the changes in their behavior are very good notice. Clark constantly repeated the importance of having big dreams and making them come true which inspire the students do their best to pass the exam. He always does the extra mile in teaching them and spends almost all of his time educating the students. His health suffers from difficult in breath but that does not stop him from reviewing the students for the exam. He has recorded instructional videos for them to watch. After the exam, Ron Clark organizes a small party for a job well done and to honor outstanding students. The principal arrives with the good news that it was the result of the state exam.
  4. 4. Everyone was amazed with how the class performed, Ron Clark’s class turned out to be the best performing class in the school, they even out do the honor class. One remarkable result was one of the students Shameika Wallace got a perfect score, which no one in the district ever does. Ron Clark was satisfied and excited seeing their students going one step closer to their dreams. •Mr. Ron Clark : a teacher who is idealist, compassionate, innovative, creative and passionate. • Tayshawn : tough-minded student, brave, indifferent. •Shameika : unruly, loud, brave, spirited leaders, mothering nature. •PrincipalTurner: selfish, tactless and doesn’t care •Marissa Vega : lovely, co-worker, beautiful, hardworking, good at acting. •Julio Vazquez : student that like to steal, like to bet, play smart cards. •Ron Clark Sr. : Clark’s mother who is kind and thoughtful. •Badriyah : shy, quiet, smart, bookworm and the only one who likes Mr. Clark at the first time. •Arena Raquel : calm and likes to sleep in class. •Badriyah's father : father curb child, undemocratic, authoritarian. •Jean Clark : Clark father who is compassionate and wise •Doretha Wallace : Mother Shamaika that hardworking and thoughtful. •Hadley : Clark’s friend at the cafe. •Alita Sanchez : cool student. •Yolanda : hotel receptionist who is busy, nice and firm.
  5. 5. Moral Issues The film represents the school as a typical urban school with students compete with great success on, being unruly, talking while the teacher is talking and administrators assuming students are low performing or special needs. The students in this movie are a mixture of African American, Latino, and Indian. It also showcases a principal who only cares about getting high test scores and not really considering what students can really do. Then, another issue is the students have difficult family lives. One child is in foster care and gets abused by his foster parent. Another child is the de-facto mom to her younger siblings, as her mother works two jobs. The children have bigger problems than not knowing grammar and their problems may disturb more sensitive kids or kids who have been in similar situations.
  6. 6. My Insights Ron Clark Story was an eye opener for the writer. It gives the writer a clearer view of what should be the real purpose of a teacher on their students and in the community. It tells us that teaching is far beyond the need for compensation and employment, it is not a career to work at but it is indeed a vocation to fulfill. His passion for improvement is very impressive, for he sees the potential in every personality and amazingly turns it into opportunity. On being a teacher, Ron Clark was deserving teacher. He reminds the writer of the saying “When the going gets tough, the tough keeps going.” He is impossible to deny the deal with educator of our time. His attitude on teaching was a model, he never lose hope on hopeless circumstances. He was never tired of experimenting teaching strategies and methods to identify how his class can learn and grasp information that they need. Clark is a have great concern in other people when it comes to teaching. He is willing to sacrifice for the benefit of each and every student in his class.
