Welsh says the reasoning behind the emigrated student’s success is the self determination and motivation to do well in school, as well as hard work exerted by the students. I agree with Welsh’s argument and believe that students who emigrated from foreign countries to the United States see their learning opportunity as a privilege that they do not take for granted unlike most of us. The American student s who are born with the opportunity to learn in United States schools tend to take their education for granted. They see it more as a requirement rather than opportunity. Welsh’s article discusses the difference between American students and Asian students.
Incorporating more relevant information into the curriculum, will allow students to become more interested. Of course this will not apply to every student that walks through the classroom doors, because every student is unique, but these modifications will benefit the majority of the student
Breakfast cereal sales in Australia were described to as “stagnent”, having been a 39 per cent increase in volume sales for hot cereals and 27 per cent growth for muesli in the past six years, Looking beyond breakfast cereals, consumers are now opting for energy and nutrition bars, which recorded a 104 per cent volume growth in the past six years. (As cited by Tom Decent,2015) Australian made all the
ECST-110 – Assignment 1 Unpacking the term Curriculum as defined in the EYLF The Council of Australian Governments’ (COAG) vision that “all children have the best start in life to create a better future for themselves and for the nation” (Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations [DEEWR], 2009, pp. 5) is coming to fruition as early education centres around Australia implement The Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF). This document isn’t a syllabus, but a framework based on conclusive international research that “early childhood is a vital period in children’s learning and development” (DEEWR, 2009, pp. 5). EYLF outlines the high expectations for children through learning outcomes as well as principles and practices
So, all in all the U.S students do have it easier. Their life isn’t predetermined for them, and cares about more than just their education but also about having fun. The other students from the other countries don’t have such a luxury. Their main focus is to
At first the different social classes don’t mesh, but through the breakdown of these barriers the students discover that they have much more similarities then differences. The group soon transfers from an introverted assembly of trouble makers to an extroverted group of friends. After such a transformation the functionalist view becomes clearer, showing that the teacher is there to control the group, and the school is in place not only to teach, but maintain order and safety. The Breakfast club shows us that everyone is viewed as different but also that everyone shares many similarities, and that social classes are not barriers , but simply status's in terms of financial wealth and social variation. Although the substance of marijuana is illegal and a damaging substance it is a tool used by the students to unconsciously bring themselves together and form a friendship bond that will more than likely keep them
.” so, even before you look at the expectations, you see that the standards are uniform. This implies that individual differences either don’t exist or are not important enough to be addressed. This kind of wording disregards the fact that not all kids learn the same. Furthermore, considerable research has demonstrated that students who are actively involved in designing their own learning are more successful, so it would make sense to allow more academic freedom in the classroom, and therefore less specific standards. (Kohn,
Making it on your own At times people tend to work well while they are under pressure. To others they simply must be under pressure to get work done and give their full effort. In her article In Praise of the F Word, Mary Sherry argues “Flunking as a regular policy has just as much merit today as it did two generations ago. We must review the threat of flunking and see it as it really is- a positive teaching too.” By making it clear to students that flunking can definitely be a result of them not putting in the time and effort in assuring they pass their class will make them more determined to learn and earn their good grades, it will also help stop those students who choose not to even try in their classes. Also by making students fear failure it will not only motivate them
Department of Education that show that girls outshine boys in reading, writing, science, math, and have a lot higher educational aspirations. She also gives us data that shows that girls are starting to beat boys in enrolling in college, and that girls are more engaged in academically then boys. She implies that all of this has been happening because the educational doesn’t “favor” boys over girls anymore. I agree with that statement, but I also don’t think that the educational should let boys be “left behind” either. Yes, boys are bad at school; I can say this because I’m a boy and I see everything first hand, my peers are less and less interested in school and college, they often talk about just either dropping out of high school and getting a job, graduating and just work and not go to college or simply join the military.
Wrong! I will tell you why are education system is flawed, why flunking is not a punishment and other options that we could introduce to young struggling students. The American education system is known as one of the best in the world, but just like many great things, flaws are eminent. Year in and year out, students get passed through school prematurely. Many of these kids think they’re on the right track because they pass classes and are moved along with the rest of the class.
