Anisha Spellman Benchmark Assessment: Language Arts Unit Plan Grand Canyon University: EED-525 November 27, 2013 “Learning to read and reading to learn” is a quote that one of the schools in my district uses to help motivate reading in all students and their families. I believe reading is an important aspect of all lives. What exactly would the world be like without the reading? It is crucial that we teach this to all of the little children while they are young and trying to learn. The more they practice and the more teachers and parents instill this in their minds, the better they will become.
A Better Education for children in care 2003 The government’s long term policy objective is to ensure that every child in care is able to fulfil his or her potential. In order to do this children need: *Greater stability *Help with schoolwork *More help from home to support schoolwork *Improved health and wellbeing.-with teachers, social care staff, health workers and carers all working together in the interests of the child. Leaving Care Act 2000 The Children Leaving Care Act 2000 introduced new requirements on local authorities to plan for looked after children so that they have the support they need as they make the transition from care to adulthood. The main purpose of the Children (Leaving Care) Act 2000 is to improve the life chances of young people living in and leaving local authority care. Its main aims are: to delay young people’s discharge from care until they are prepared and ready to leave, to improve the assessment, preparation and planning for leaving care, to provide better personal support for young people
The educators strive to follow a state-based curriculum, committing themselves to a whole child approach in support of each child reaching his or her highest potential. COES has 791 students enrolled (VPK-5). Most children enrolled come from low to middle-income homes, homes where one or both parents have not had a college education. However, in recent years
How I learned to read or write… Trying to remember how I learned to read or write is hard for me. I don’t know why either. To get some help to refresh my memory I started to go through my elementary school papers. I’m so happy my mom saved my early education moments. Without those papers I would be lost trying to recall what happened.
These courses allowed me to be taught by actual elementary school teachers, who have years of experience with working with children, and the knowledge and advice they were able to pass on truly helped me better understand what I was signing up for as an education major, and helped my improve the way I teach so that I could articulate in a way that would be comprehensible to students of a young age. These classes are slowly molding me to become a great teacher. Also, I am doubling majoring in psychology in hopes that it will help me to better understand the mentality of special education students, so that in the future I will be able to teach them in a way that they will be able to grasp. Psychology courses have
The conclusion of the study was that early Montessori education had a long-term impact on later public school performance”(Cavegn). By way of example, parents who may be questioning the transition between a Montessori preschool to a traditional public school can view these results, and feel confident that the Montessori preschool program can potentially be the most effective and influential option for a preschool child’s higher education. Skills that are inevitably learned through Montessori, such as leadership, independence, socialization, respect, etc. further develop students’ education, and allow them to surpass other students who lack a Montessori education, in terms of test scores and grade point
Professor Kamerman ENG 301 28 June 2009 Accelerated Reader Program: Benefit or Detriment Reading is vital to literacy; knowing how to read is necessary and assures success in most fields of work. Reading helps with writing as well; a person who reads more than they play games or watch television will find it much easier to come up with the words necessary to express their thoughts and ideas in writing. Teaching children to read is the beginning to providing them with the tools they need for a successful life, academically and in their careers. The purpose here is to explore the Accelerated Reader/Reading Renaissance (AR/RR) program and discuss whether it truly is beneficial to students by providing them with the opportunity to progress
Literacy Service Learning Project Kellen Brooks Brandon McHale Mr. Schoenbauer I am doing a literacy service learning project in school to help promote world literacy. I have chosen to help out my local library by saving them the trouble to categorize books for them. Brandon and I are partners for this project and we are hoping it will benefit our library by helping them out. I believe if all of our library books are categorized correctly it will allow people to find their books quickly and more efficiently resulting in the more books being read which will then result in worldwide literacy. The first day of our literacy service learning project we had to choose who we wanted to work with on this project.
CHARACTER EDUCATION AND ME 2 I agree that character education should be taught in schools. The question is what should be taught, and how should it be taught? Lickona (1991) stated that “good character consist of knowing the good, desiring the good, and doing good” (p.150). In order for schools to successfully teach character education students need to be exposed to, understand, internalize, and act upon universally agreed upon moral values (Lickona, 1991). I agree with Lickona (2009) when he said that “family lays the Foundation”.
Multiculturalism in the Classroom Marietta Miller ECE 405: Children and Families in a Diverse Society Instructor: Kristen Crocker December 19, 2011 Multiculturalism in the Classroom As an educator it is important that we learn everything possible about the children we will be teaching, there will be children from various countries with various cultures and it is important that they do not feel as though they are any less important than the children with the same cultural background as the teacher is. I chose to write about Hispanic decent because they are one of the fastest-growing ethnic minorities in the United States. Numbering about 22.4 million in 1992, they make up the second largest minority in the nation, African Americans being the largest. About 60 percent of these Hispanics trace their origin to Mexico. It is not uncommon to walk down the streets of an American city today and hear Spanish spoken.
