*Using labelling theory to explain how language, the hidden curriculum, and subcultures may affect a person's experience of school.
In this essay I will explain the labelling theory, the hidden curriculum, subcultures and their meanings. I will then explain how they all affect a person's experience of school.
Teachers do not know much about there students when they arrive at school, yet by the eighth day the children are already seated at three separate tables and the teachers have made a conclusion as to what type of student they will be. At table one there are the 'fast learners', table two and three are reserved for the 'slower learners'. Labelling consists of three stages, the first stage being speculation, this is where teachers make guesses as to the type of student they are dealing with and this is done by looking at certain criteria's being:
* Their appearance * How likeable they are
* How they conform to discipline * Their relationships towards others
* Their willingness to learn * Their personality
* Their enthusiasm for work * Weather they are deviant
* Their use
