As of today, most states, (forty-three states, the District of Columbia, four territories, and the Department of Defense Education Activity), have voluntarily adopted these standards. The new standards also provide a way for teachers to measure student progress throughout the school year and ensure that students are on the pathway to success in their academic careers. Educational standards are the learning goals for what students should know and be able to do at each grade level. Educational standards help teachers ensure their students have the skills and
A good education by the right institution would open the window of opportunity by guiding me in the right profession to chase the better companies to apply for a job with a focused clear mind. With a good college teaching me it could help me understand diversity and a multitude of cultures, helping me build a better network circle of people which could be important in having a future career. Being more educated with such a larger way of thinking could help me be a more independent person also a self-starter instead of a follower. Another quote that someone told me was by Oscar Wilde (Berdichevsky) “You can never be over dressed or over educated.” You can never be over educated to me means that you can always add to your education. If you have an Associates degree you can always go to Bachelors degree and even higher.
Diana Grande Response Paper Okagaki & Sternburg’s Ideas Develop, Cognition, & Learning Dr. Templeton 10/22/2012 In “Putting the Distance into Student’s Hands: Practical Intelligence for School” by Lynn Okagaki and Robert J. Sternburg, the two authors discuss a new age idea for teaching in America’s schools, especially public schools. The two of them worked with Howard Gardner on a curriculum the three of them want to implement in junior high and high schools. This curriculum consists of many theories the three of them have come up with, like Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences, Sternburg’s triarchic theory, also with sub theories. Okagaki, Gardner, and Sternburg’s theories contribute well to the curriculum the three of them would like to implement and it would help improve learning greatly by teaching students to take control of their own learning, learn tacit knowledge, and improve in studying and test-taking. Okagaki and Sternburg’s ideas discuss something called tacit knowledge.
The teacher knows how to build and implement a plan for professional growth directly aligned with his/her needs as a growing professional using feedback from teacher evaluations and observations, data on learner performance, and school- and system-wide priorities. The artifact I chose for this standard is field experience sheet followed by the Eastfield College Children Laboratory Mathematics curriculum planning guide 2010-2011. I received the field experience sheet in my EDEC 3613D: Introduction to Early Childhood Education fall semester of 2011 at Eastfield Community College. The purpose of this field experience was to promote the skills of observation, analysis and reflection the teacher candidates have. The mission was to visit Eastfield College Children Laboratory to observe, reflect to a lesson plan and the material and props
The home is the prime place in which children learn to be. This is where they learn to be a human being. I also firmly believe in observational learning as the key and main part of learning. Before a child could speak, they can see the actions of their parents; they can hear the words that come out of their mouths. A child is usually with their parents for three to five years before they enter into the public schools.
The presentations were included as part of the health curriculum which is presented to children each year in the first nine weeks. In addition to observing the educational program, I was also responsible for delivering content on nutrition to 5th grade students. Although the instructional materials had already been created—including a PowerPoint, role play and individual exercise—the experience was important for learning how to engage with children in the classroom. School nurses work directly with one of society’s most vulnerable groups, requiring them to have hands-on knowledge of the needs of this group as well as the practices which work best for engaging them in health promotion behaviors. The Role of the Nurse A review of what has been noted regarding the purpose of the nurse in the school setting indicates that professionals working in this area are responsible for addressing the health and educational needs of children (Lee, 2011).
According to Kristine Carraway in “Teaching Foreign Language,” finding adequate numbers of speakers of some languages for business and government is difficult. Carraway thinks that American schools should give more language choices to their students. American schools are teaching so limited and unhelpful languages. Indeed, more language choices should be offered at schools so that students can better communicate with their parents whose first language is not English and have more choices when seeking jobs. American schools should offer more language choices to help their students whose parents’ English is as a second language communicate with parents.
This spreadsheet is now used by all of the building level administrators when they share their data to the board. Another characteristic of having an Arranger strength, is the ability to create teams that will can work together. I was asked my by principal to select a few teachers to be part of our innovative planning team. This team needed members that would a discuss our school divisions goal from transitioning away from the standard memorization and test-taking model and moving towards providing our youth with skills that will help them in the 21st century workforce. I was able to select teachers with different personalities and different viewpoints on education to come together and develop STEAM lesson plans that would increase collaboration and engagement with our
In order to be able to get the grades the students want, they have to work for it. Once students get rewarded for their grades, they have a greater chance of not staying after school, and a greater chance of being caught up with everything else. Students will work harder, learn more, and will be more organized with homework. The last reason why, is that students would get higher test scores and better grades. When students test scores and grades improve, they would feel proud of themselves.
There are too many different things that students and parents need to consider such as the credits, the cost, the course and instructor, etc. After researching and considering, in fact, high school should really need to attend community college because of caliber of instruction, size of classroom and weak grades of enrolling. Community colleges are better than the university because of the caliber of instruction. Professors in community college are enthusiastic about teaching. They devote more time than professors in university on teaching.
