Cheating, fear of failure are just some of the examples that existing in the graded-oriented environment. Measureable outcomes are necessary but it doesn’t mean that teachers have to turn everything into numbers; in fact grades are the “least significant results of learning”. Although the absence of “assessment-based grading” is a necessary; teachers should consider these following grading techniques: replace numbers and letter with rubrics, prepare students to every test without fortify their knowledge, post grades online only add more destructive effects on learning, students are willing to read your comments about their works and finally
Conclusion -> draw together main ideas/arguments An outsider does not fit into society and they will do what they see to be right. Although the legal system is meant to be fair, it is only fair to society. If some one is different society tries to outcast them. More often than not, justice does not reach as far as the outsider. Justice is what is seen to be right and just by society and this means that society is catered for.
The author is also saying that when you give them a label for their personality or intellectual habits they pin themselves beneath those labels assigned to them which make them dismiss any future association with other styles. The counterargument made is that the learning style movement was not needed to teach that students learn better when they participate actively in building ideas. He made reference to John Dewey who also argued in this point that without the distortions many scholars before and since have developed theories of participant knowledge making without reducing human identity into silly categories. The concession he then made was that the learning styles can be quite beneficial. It had prompted teachers to rethink the habit of lectures and it wants to help students.
When he makes the point that everyone can make their voice heard, Abby, one of the students said that hers does not matter in society and it can’t make an impact. Yagelski realizes that Abby is somewhat right, “Abby’s experiences in the world contradicts much of what her English teachers—and other representatives of the educational and political establishment, including me… (Pg.4)” Yagelski realizes that Abby’s teachings are flawed because the teachings make her believe that her opinions matter to those above and below her when in reality they don’t. He then says that everyone has an equal voice and opinion but it only matters based on where your spot in the social pyramid is. Yagelski then lists several ways for someone’s voice to be heard within their area of the social pyramid; the suggestions were made for someone is a normal person. Some of them were: to submit a petition to a town council or school board, to respond to a request to sign a petition, to understand the minimum wage law announcement posted on a bulletin board at a workplace.
Chand In Richard Rodriguez’s “Aria”, the author makes a clear statement where he believes that a child speaking their native tongue in their daily lives obscures all possible ties with learning the public language. He believes that it is an interference with the learning development and effective transition of the public language. In essence being able to communicate through one’s cultural language is not an act that can be removed from a person’s life as it defines their culture and ethnic values. An individual’s private language might present more meaningful ideas which can be presented than by speaking through the public language for a person. Being flexible with both a private language as well as the public language is a more practical
Students do not realize that plagiarizing someone else’s work is actually stealing. The educational system does not teach this to students. The educational system should teach that you have to cite an author even if you just take their idea and do not use their exact words. The online companies that generate essays for students should be outlawed. This is making it where students that have a lot of money can easily get by with actually learning how to write correctly.
Taking Responsibility For Education Students rely on a number of things in their pursuit of a higher education; teachers, accredited institutions, and textbooks containing correct information. James Loewen, who wrote Lies My Teacher Told Me, brings up concerns for students stating US History lower-learning textbooks are not equipped with factual information. In Loewen’s text he brings to light some very significant US events he believes are not factual. When we think of studying history we think about learning specific dates, events, or wars that impacted our country. Not many people stop to question if the information they are reading or being taught is factual.
Paulo Freire Abstract Dr. Freire writes from a Third World perspective, but with obvious implications for education in general. He rejects mechanistic conceptions of the adult literacy process, advocating instead a theory and practice based upon authentic dialogue between teachers and learners. Such dialogue, in Freire's approach, centers upon codified representations of the learners' existential situations and leads not only to their acquisition of literacy skills, but more importantly to their awareness of their right and capacity as human beings to transform reality. Becoming literate, then, means far more than learning to decode the written representation of a sound system. It is truly an act of knowing, through which a person is able to look critically at the culture which has shaped him, and to move toward reflection and positive action upon his world.
It is in our nature to open ourselves for others to be able to come inside, however, we have to love ourselves in order to be able to love someone else just as equally or even more. Others may argue, that if friendship is human nature then why isn't there more of it? Is it actually viewed as true friendship? We can usually see friendship in a various amount of places but the real question is whether the relationship is genuine or not. There are only a small quantity of friends that you can honestly call your true friends.
Adler and Jung Adler believed that people are motivated by inferiority feelings. These feelings of inferiority are the driving factor for people to become successful. Actions are intentional and those actions are more important than heredity and genetics. However, Adler also recognized that “biological and environmental conditions limit our capacity to choose and to create” (Corey, 2009). Adler used a holistic approach that the person is a whole and cannot be treated in parts.
