Courses like home economics, entrepreneurship ,and accounting should be mandatory. Not everyone has a mom that will teach them how to cook or do laundry or a dad that can teach them how to do taxes or fix a flat tire, so these life skills should be available to us in school. The curricular system that's currently being used is outdated, just like the textbooks we "learn" from. Decades ago school was a place people wanted to go, they yearned for knowledge. The curriculum that was being taught matched the jobs that that era needed.
Summary of “Are Colleges Worth the Price of Admission?” In the article, “Are Colleges Worth the Price of Admission?” by, Andrew Hacker and Claudia Drefius there are many suggestions on how to reform colleges to make the price of admission worth it to students attending. One idea stated in the article was engaging all students; “professors must make an effort to reach their students” (180). The authors are suggesting that instead of just teaching day to day curriculum they should pay attention to how all the students are performing. Another point stated was that colleges are not pushing their students minds. Instead of worrying about the pay off the students should be concerned with developing all they can intellectually.
488). O`malley explains that students should be given test frequently to allow the teachers to give their students feed back in where their grades stand in the class and to discipline them into studying on a daily basis. The article also mentions that some professors are usually against more testing because it would be time consuming for them to prepare the exams then grade them. However, this issue can be solved by having teaching assistants or by grading multiple-choice exams by scantron machines. In conclusion, O’Malley strongly suggests that professors should give students
Promoting Literacy and Comprehension The ways of traditional teaching are a thing of the past. In today’s classrooms teachers are working hard to find new and exciting ways to engage the students, promote learning, comprehension and writing. However, even with the stimulating activities and lessons students will continue to ask the same question, “Why do I have to learn this? When will this ever be a part of real life?” Teachers must be prepared to explain to their students exactly how math, reading, science, and history will all be a used outside of a classroom setting and in the real world. For example, teachers should shine light on how studying algebra actually develops stronger problem solving skills and leads students into a deeper level of thinking.
Trainers should help students in creating such presentations and taking questions .All these activities require more efforts. The trainers should design the course carefully so that they can achieve the main objectives of learning business English rather than involving games in them so that learners are helped not only in learning but also even in the future job activities. Disagreement:- In the teaching of business English as a foreign language, games are very important. Every new learner finds it difficult to cope up with learning of n w language initially and continuous classroom discussions becomes monotonous, slow and boring. Games make lesson learning fun.
As educators all over the country we are faced with having to embrace and implement technology into our schools and for teachers their lessons. We have students who are very skilled with technology and in order to keep they engage and involved in the lessons we have to incorporate technology into our lessons and move away from the lecture style of teaching and create more interactive lessons that will keep students motivated in the classrooms. Special needs students require more funding and services to provide them with the tools and materials that they need to be successful in school. The special education has really changed over the years because we now have districts moving from the out of district placements and now have more of the special education students in inclusion classrooms and of course we still have the resource rooms and the self contained classrooms. Many districts because of costs are not seeking out of district placements but instead are creating programs within the various school districts that mirror the out of district programs.
John Holt writes in his essay “School Is Bad for Children,” explains “We need to get kids out of the school buildings, give them a chance to learn about the world at first hand.” (Holt, pg.67.) I agree, freedom for students to learn is what educators need to start doing. Instead of sitting there and listening to the gibberish that the teacher is trying to explain, students can learn by doing and being more hands on. Holt adds, “Students, perhaps in groups, perhaps independently, will go to libraries, museums, exhibits, court rooms, legislatures, radio and TV stations, meetings, businesses, and laboratories to learn about their world and society at first hand.” (Holt, pg. 67) If education was taught this way, then when students do venture out into the real world to find work or continue on higher education they are more prepared to face them head
Anyon does think that more research needs to be done to clearly show how economic status has a direct connection to the role in children’s education. What I think one of the key aspects of Anyon’s essay is the examples that were given for each school and how the social class affected the teaching. Examples were given by what the teacher said and how he/she taught, I was able to put myself in the classroom and see how I would have handled learning. Starting with the working-class schools, Anyon observed how teachers didn’t explain the work, how it would relate to other lessons, or the point of learning. I feel if you don’t understand the point of something, what is the point of learning?
This program is designed to help change the way students think. The classes are made up to leave half the time for students to communicate with other students in their class. The need for more programs, like IMPM, challenges the student to reflect on their experiences through knowledge and application. Critique I found this article very interesting. It is interesting to see that schools and colleges fail to recognise soft skills in their
Generally speaking when attending an online school over a campus college, the participation grades are based differently. In online schools your participation grade is based on meeting the posting requirements and posting on the required discussion questions. Most of the time grades for schools online are based on points. A student’s professor will post a rubric in your materials for the student to follow to meet all the points. A large concern to some students may have when considering attending college online is the fact that it may be harder to get personal help and learn the material through your professor.
