There are assessments when a child is aged between 2 and 3 years and at the end of the academic year when they turn 5. The assessments are based on EYFS practitioners’ observations. Information from the assessments is used for parents, practitioners and teachers to support children’s learning and development. The 7 areas that early years learning concentrates on are: * communication and language * physical development * personal, social and emotional development * literacy * mathematics * understanding of the world * expressive arts and design Teaching is often done through play, where the child learns about subjects and other people through games. At the end of the academic year when a child turns 5, the practitioner records each child’s development by watching the child playing and in the classroom.

This paper is a psychological analysis of five distinct adolescents, the main characters in John Hughes' 1984 film, The Breakfast Club. These individuals represent a cross-section of middle class high school students, brought together to share a day of detention. In the process, they reveal much about the factors that shaped their personalities, the problems each faces, and their possible futures. This paper uses elements from many of the principal theories of personality development to understand who these people are and who they are likely to become. "The Breakfast Club" is a disparate group of high school students at a suburban Chicago school in the mid-1980s.
Select Teams /Team Study: Teams are selected and take on the task of learning together about Saltmarshes a. Students will be selected for their teams of four, unless there is an odd number, and then there will be five students to a team. b. The teams will be a balance of academic ability, gender and ethnicity. Which students make up the team is at the discretion of the
Each parent will be interviewed before agreeing for their child to receive the test, discussion of the purpose of the test, and the length of the test. The method of scaling, a test using the Early Literacy test, includes five extended samples of social/emotional, cognitive, language development, and the characteristic that make each child unique. The test is computerized and each time a child answers a question it is correct/ incorrect response, tallied, and compared to the answers of the other children that previously tested. The test type is compared to Star Early Literacy which uses scored using the Rasch 1-parameter logistic response model. Based on the scoring system of Rasch 1 this test is a criterion-referenced test, there is not a percentile
Whereas education during Jefferson’s era was, voluntary and he believed in teaching everyone the basics. Additionally, Jefferson believed that students in the elementary schools should read enough history “by appraising them of the past, will enable them to judge the future; it will avail them of the experience of other times and other nations; it will qualify them as judges of the actions and designs of men…”(S&S pg. 40). Whereas in today’s practice, elementary students receive about forty-five minutes of history a month until they enter 5th or 6th grade. In chapter three, the Quality of Teachers according to Horace Mann “the education and the quality of the state’s teachers was the inadequate preparation most teachers had received” (S&S pg.
Article Review by Michelle Shipman EDD 9300 Methods of Inquiry Nova Southeastern University February 7, 2011 Review of a Qualitative Research Report Introduction The purpose of the article chosen was to analyze and assess an appropriate tool for reading in elementary students using a response to intervention model. Also, the researcher wanted to investigate and define the reading problems in poor readers specifically those in the fourth grade. A Universal Screening tool called Response to Intervention (RTI) was used to identify the selected students. The screening was done on two hundred and thirty fourth graders. For the period of the study, the researcher wanted to determine if students would need more intensive instruction after implementing the RTI instruction.
