Action Reading Program Debra Woods Phonics Based Reading & Decoding EDU 371 Instructor: Sandra Harley September 14, 2011 Action Reading Program Action Reading program is a phonics-based program designed to assist teachers with effective methods of reading instruction. The purpose of this program is to allow students or adults a way to enhance their skills of reading. The idea behind this program is to help develop a passion of reading. I am a student at Ashford University, and currently I am taking a class called Phonics Based Reading and Decoding. This course had provided me with the opportunity to teach this program effectively to students within five weeks.
I am very interested in starting a specific service project my junior year for CAS hours and this would be a great help to me with that. I think that I would be a valuable attendee to CASL because I am a freshman. Anything I learn can be used for all the rest of my four years of high school. I would also be a valuable attendee to the CASL conference because I would easily be able to make up the work that I miss on that Monday from school. I am also one of the older ones out of all my classmates so I would like to go to CASL so that I can learn to be a better leader to those who might look up to me.
Gatto is saying that schooling is made for kids to adapt to; it has adaptive qualities, therefore there is a chance for everyone to succeed if they really want to, but it takes away from any individual thinking. Conforming is another evil of school because it makes us forced to learn things we really have no interest in and as Gatto states “its intention is to make children as alike as possible”(153). A lot of students use this excuse while they are in high school “when am I ever going to use this again in life” ill be honest I have said it before but I don't necessarily agree with these students because you need to build a base education before you figure out what you want your schooling to focus on. Kids change their minds everyday, I realized that I’m not quite sure I want to be an art major anymore, even being in the first couple of classes I knew it wasn’t for me
This paper is going to be about my top five themes that I got from taking the test. The results is received from this test will help me have a better understanding of how to become successful in a number of different ways through my personality. Strengths Quest Reflection Paper Strengths Finder Themes Everyone has strengths as well weaknesses, however too often we dwell on are weaknesses rather than build on our personal strengths. The reason for identifying my personal strengths are to make better decisions, handle stress, develop better study skills, choose a major that best fits me, and to deal with all the issues and new things I will come across as freshmen in college. Once I recognize these strengths I can achieve success not only in college, but in my overall life.
Conformity vs. Individuality State education and student individuality are what causes much tension in public schools. Schools want to achieve the same goal of producing a good student, but through what means? Are mandatory classes going to teach students to think for themselves of how to blend in with conformity and obey authority? It is in the schools best interest to balance these ideas and not lean towards only one, and not have a school only based on conformity or individuality, but should balance both. Mandatory classes are used to set a basic system and to set standard classes for everyone, since everyone must learn the same things such as math, reading, and science.
I’m a well-eddicated lady and I’m trying to revolutionise this school with my teaching, but it isn’t going to be possible if I can’t get control of a class of six year olds. I know, sir, don’t give up; I suppose the kids mean well. Though their pity makes me angry, I appreciate their comforting gestures. I guess that I will just press on. That’s all we can do in this day and
As well did I when I first read Gatto's piece against school. But after reanalyzing this article I was able to pick it apart. By going to school you are able to learn and improve the skills you need for future commissions. But Gatto refuses to believe in the public school educational system. Gatto says that school diminishes creativity; if anything kids discover their hidden creativeness in class while at school.
Teaching or learning outcomes In a 750-1,000 word essay, construct a plan of how these three pieces of technology could be integrated into a classroom, and how they would make teaching more effective and efficient, or would increase student learning. Support your plan with evidence from the reading, and three to five peer-reviewed articles from the GCU eLibrary.
It was said that one ‘solution’ to the ‘problem’ of inequity was to ‘educate the parents’ (Thomson, P 2002, p. 3) and encourage them to ‘supervise’ their children whilst doing homework. This suggests that with the parent’s encouragement and reinforcement towards the child, they are more likely to want to succeed and feel they have the right to succeed, instead of there being a boundary between the advantaged and disadvantaged children. The parents of both Vicki and Thanh want the best for their children, to graduate and achieve a ‘university’ (Thomson, P 2002, p.2) degree. However Vicki is more likely to succeed because of her parent’s educational background and will be able to provide the support that she needs going through school, whereas Thanh will have to find other sources for educational help because his parents do not have the knowledge that he
While there are several “rags to riches” stories that serve to encourage the members of the lower class to work hard and achieve their dreams, much truth lies in the fact that the government does not provide enough opportunities for them to do so. I would recommend revising the school choice provision of the No Child Left Behind Act in order to enable the mobility of students to schools located outside of their district. By doing so, many of the children within the working class would have the option to attend a school where they could receive the same opportunities as those of their high-born
