According to Learning-Related Behaviors and Literacy Achievement in Elementary School-Aged Children written by Deborah Stipek and Stephen Newton of Stanford University and Amita Chudgar of Michigan State University, "[e[vidence for the benefits of preschool education is strong now, but controversy continues about which dimensions of children 's development should be emphasized" ( Stipek, Newton, Chudgar, p. 3, 2010). They emphasize the importance of good learning behaviors in their early elementary school career to comprehend more and to attain literary proficiency more swiftly. Stipek, Newton, and Chudgar observed children in kindergarten or first grade to third grade and from third grade to fifth grade. They found through close examination of students in these particular grade sequences that the "direction of the relationship between learning-related behavior and literacy skills may change, or at least become more reciprocal in the later grades." They found that "children 's ability to plan, evaluate and regulate problem solving activities, attend to tasks, persist and resist distraction" closely correlated with their academic achievement (Stipek, Newton, and Chudgar, p.6, 2010).
(Ireland) (Smith) In conclusion, the question still remains “Should all high school students be required to complete parenting classes?” By my research that I pulled, it would be highly beneficial in helping with teen pregnancies and parenthood preparation. These classes teaching teens about responding to their child’s behavior skills. If they are in high school, it teaches them how to maintain their grades and not to drop out. It helps with post-partum depression after the teen feels obligated. And last but not least it puts the students into concertation of safety
In addition to Dweck’s article, you can further explore a similar idea in an article by author 's Michael Ford and Michael Opitz, called "Helping Young Children Discover The Joy Of Learning", In her article, Dweck states "It is the belief that intelligence can be developed that opens students to a love of learning, a belief in the power of effort and constructive, determined reactions to setbacks." (Dweck 2). Dweck argues that intelligence is developed and the more you apply yourself, the more you will achieve success. This argument is extended in an article by Michael Ford and Michael Opitz article "Helping Young Children Discover The Joy Of Learning" which they claim that "The theoretical foundation for joyful learning involves exploration of current thinking about motivation and engagement"(Ford, Opitz 2). A concern that teachers have is how to get their students motivated and engage in their learning on a day to day basis.
Students who are allowed to explore, empathize, question, hypothesize, conceptualize, experiment, and evaluate throughout their own learning become productive community members" (Hummell 5). Allowing children to learn to think critically helps them to solve problems and have a logical argument about something they believe is true. Applying critical thinking into schools gives a child a chance to make a difference. Also, Elizabeth McKinstry agrees with Hummell in challenging the next generation to think for themselves. McKinstry writes about how Common Core education helps children become more interactive in the world and teaches them how to apply the knowledge they have learned in life.
Often, parents think learning only happens at school but that is far from true: learning starts at home. Some examples of educational factors would be being the child read to, did the family members complete school, does the child attend an educational program, and is the family involved in the child’s education. When it comes to how education affects a child’s development the first question is what is the quality of education that the child is receiving. This determines how it affects the child. Most of the time, education systems are surrounded by positive upbeat caring teachers which encourages children to learn which increases their brain growth and development.
Read alouds allow the teacher to model fluent reading and make the comprehension process visible, (Hilden and Jones, 2013, "THE COMPONENTS OF EFFECTIVE READ ALOUDS," n.d). Some students do not receive read alouds at home, and these are the children that especially need to be read to, ( Otto, 2014). As the children progress through their schooling, they begin to think that reading fast is the most efficient, but when the teacher models her thought process aloud, this allows the students to witness what “good reading” actually entails(Hilden and Jones, 2013, "THE COMPONENTS OF EFFECTIVE READ ALOUDS," n.d). Part of “good reading” is asking questions about the
Walking around the class, stretching, or stop working for a while helps to relax and recompose a child (Kluth, 2010). 10. Inclusion By observing what their peers do, autistic children are able to learn appropriate behaviors from them. If students are to learn to socialize, they will be required to be present where their peers are and listen to and learn how they socialize. If students will require specialized support for academic success, teachers will need to assess the learners’ functioning in the inclusive classroom to know the types of support needed (Kluth, 2010).
In my opinion, it is a wonderful program because the children have the opportunity to learn both languages at the same time at the early age. With this program the students could develop cognitively in both languages, and they learn about culture and history of their ethnic group. One example of the dual language is the students who speak Spanish or speak-English are placed in the same classroom, and they learn and work academically each other in both languages. I hopefully in the future the Dual Language will implement in more schools because this is a great program and the students will obtain a wonderful opportunity to learn more than one language in the United
The theme revolves around the method to help children develop “The Six C's" i.e. Competence, Cognitive Strength, Complex relationships, Collaborative capacities, Creativity & Communication Skills. One of the topic shared was on how to build quality programmes through high quality program. Quality was referred to a rich educational setting that allows for children to enquire, play and bond joyfully and naturally. While the concept were ideal in the early childhood development, the need for community to embrace the change is critical.
They are turning around their approach into a focus on creating positive school climate and responsive classroom as part of holistic quality education based on child rights where there is effective teaching and classroom management, thus enhancing students’ learning experiences. The motivational psychology researchers discovered several useful approaches and practices that can be implemented in the classroom for effective learning to take place (Miller, 2012). Teachers are using differentiation to support teaching and learning. Differentiation can vary in pace, activities, resources, teaching and learning styles in an attempt to best meet the needs of individual student. Various teaching strategies such as cooperative learning, active learning, role play and games and pedagogic tools are being integrated in educational theories in meaningful and useful ways to encourage task or learning achievements.
