Over the previous century, education has turned into the most basic to the advancement of an educated society, enlarging openings and impacting individuals ' points of view on any society of Maldives. The opportunity of education in any society or any country is extensive and highly valued. To seek education people are making significant and personal investments across the world. However, we do not have a common understanding of the actual goal of education. Different scholars have a different perspective on education based on their experiences and it is a wide idea which can be characterized in different ways as education is one of the most important and influential basic need of every human being. A Greek philosopher Mr. Aristotle has quoted, “The educated differ from the uneducated as much as the living from the dead.” (Brainy Quote, 2001)
All five of the activities were chosen in order to encourage children’s numeracy skills. The activities were based around the development of the four fundamental skills of numeracy learning. These are the ability to name and draw basic shapes and colours, able to count up to ten, begin to understand time and start to recognise patterns and routines.
I know that creativity and the art is very important material for children to learn at a early age. Also in the creativity and art area they are able to figure out different problem and then are able to solve them. In the art area it can help boost their child self confidence and self esteem while in the classroom. One way I will suggestion to the families and caregivers is to make sure that their activities are age appropriate. The second suggestion I will make sure that they have enough room to explore and developing their gross motor skils.The third suggestion I will make to the families and caregivers is to let the children dance around the room this is developing their gross motor skills.The frouth suggestion I will make is
According Gatto, a man who speaks from both the perspective of a student and a teacher, the education system in America is truly a marvel of modern social engineering. He argues the problems commonly associated with American education are just the opposite because, in his view, what some view as issues, are what society has created as the fundamental pillars of schooling. It is his belief that school simply exists not to educate, but to instill the qualities necessary to produce a compliant work force. Thus, the twelve years of schooling millions of kids experience all across the United States only plans to ‘dumb [them] down’ (Gatto, 2003). All the time, money, and effort these kids impart unto their studies in the hopes of learning is only
In the essay “Doing Nothing Is Something”, author Anna Quindlen uses the rhetorical strategies Ethos, Pathos, and Logos to encourage children today to spend more time doing nothing. Quindlen believes children in America are overscheduled and never have time to explore their creativity that presents itself while the mind is idle. Parents, being the target audience of this essay, should allow their child downtime to explore their mind and creativity.
Imagination and emotion play an important role in an individual artistic process. As both of these demonstrate an expression of our feeling, which expand upon our sensory images and our emotions. When looking at the imagination aspect of art, a child is to express their imagination within the given subject. Emotions are used to direct the art facet of the cross curriculum activity. As each day brings forth new feelings and emotions a child’s artistic thoughts will vary from day to day. Taking both imagination and emotion theories into perspective as it clearly is explained within the Applied Research in Child Development article, as a feature teacher we exemplify and encourage students to be imaginative and use their feelings through arts integrations, as those theories create unique and individual learning experiences for the students. When children are to use these theories of art they have a sense of control and motivation to want to learn and continue to learn. Developing a foundation of motivation and engagement can only instigate and light a fire to the child’s education. Within my own individual classroom, it is important to support and encourage students to put forth imagination and emotions in their cross curriculum activities. I will build a
In working with urban areas, I give back to my local community as a leader of LEAP, an after-school program at Jefferson Elementary in Lennox. In this position, I work in conjunction with another leader to develop and implement exciting and creative curriculum for a classroom of students ranging from
Early Childhood development plays an emotional, social and physical role in a young child. How they are taught from birth to second grade portrays how they will see the world around them and who they become to be. The early years in development plays a big role because it is when the brain starts developing. They start to see the world from their point of view. Starting from a young age they need our supervision and guidance needed to succeed. There learning experience at a young age depicts their rate of success as they grow which is argued in both articles “When Children Draw” By Sandra Crosser, Ph D and “The Essentials of Early Literacy Instruction” By Kathleen A. Roskos, James F. Christie, and Donald J. Richgels.
“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself” once said John Dewey. ““If we teach today’s students as we taught yesterday’s, we rob them of tomorrow.” once said John Dewey. Accordingly, we should take action to change education for the better. We should be ashamed of today’s education system. These improvements, however onerous they maybe, are crucial to the success of the future generations. If education fails to evolve with our society, then we will be destined for collapse. In today’s education system we lack individualism, and promote non critical thinking skills.
On today I observed Ms. Douglas’ kindergarten art class. The room was colorful and filled with various resources such as the elements of art, some key concepts to becoming an artist, and the rules. On the whiteboard were the words I CAN… with the objectives of the day/week listed for each grade level. The display which caught my attention the most was the display board on the side of the room labeled Art Behavior Race. It was a reward system that Ms. Douglas used for all of her class to earn prizes based on their class behavior. There were various prizes listed such as, a free day, candy bags, and the final prize was a pizza party whenever the class reached the end of the race. The room was set up with students seated in groups according to
Tom Horne, the state superintendent of public instruction in Arizona said, "When you think about the purpose of education, there are three,” he goes on to say, “We're preparing kids for jobs. We're preparing them to be citizens. And we're teaching them to be human beings who can enjoy the deeper forms of beauty,” he finishes with, “The third is as important as the other two,"
Hello, Dr. Kindall and everyone, My Philosophy Regarding Education is that every child can learn and achieve their goals. Not every child is an “A” student, but when we empower that child with the right tools, they are able to accomplish many things. Children needs to know
Provide a summary for the video (minimum 100 words). This video begins in a classroom setting. The teachers seem to be drilling information from the students. The teacher makes the students quickly recite the words given and spell one word. Then, a child is shown site reading. While the child is reading, the teacher/instructor is keeping track of if and how many errors were made. She also kept track of how long it took the child to read the given paragraph. The next thing in the video, they interview a young student and ask him why he enjoys the directional education methods that they use in the classroom. He says he enjoys it because he gets to read a lot. Another child is interviewed about the directional method and she spoke about how today when she read, she read aloud with no errors as opposed to the day prior when she had three errors. In this video, a woman explains that this method does not target competition between peers, but it make the students more aware of themselves and the progress they are making. The teachers in this video seem to have patterns with how they instruct the classroom. They will provide auditory cues like
Evolving methodologies for curriculum and instruction are essential to improving how we educate. McMillian positions that essential to this is understanding the value of scientific inquiry. He explains, “the principles of scientific inquiry provide the foundation for conducting studies…analyzing educational problems, making decisions, and designing, conducting, reporting, and evaluating” (McMillian, 2016, p. 7) to provide significant benefits for engaging students and affecting achievement. Among the changing methodologies is the consensus that the use of STEM-education concepts are necessary to prepare students for 21st century skill-building. Subsequently, this has led to an instructional methodology that highlights math-centered curriculum, and the instruction of science and technology as independent of core content. However, as many schools have experienced, neglecting to provide students with a contextually relevant and interdisciplinary approach to STEM that includes the arts (performing and visual) fails to yield the desired effect on student performance and achievement.
