If I expect both an accurate view of student abilities and a comprehensive running record, it is my duty to practice creating effective questions addressing all levels of comprehension! My final thoughts about children 's reading and learning are about the nuances between students that are so important to note as a teacher. I did a running record for two students and the differences between the students were astounding. One student read without confidence, while the other student, facing a similar situation (uncertainty of words, no previous experience with the book, no knowledge of me) read confidently.
Ungar’s essay, Charles Murray discusses why a liberal arts degree is unnecessary in his essay, “Are Too Many People Going to College?”. Murray believes that the basics of a liberal education are indeed important, but that students should be provided the basics of liberal arts in elementary and middle school (Murray 223). In this essay, Murray cites E.D. Hirsch Jr.’s book Cultural Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know.” Hirsch Jr. and Murray believe that there is a “body of core knowledge” that all students should have, and that “this core knowledge is an important part of the glue that holds the culture together” but that this core knowledge should be taught in grades K-8 (Murray 224). Murray discusses how young children are much better at memorizing facts than adults are, to support his position that kids should be memorizing this core knowledge at a younger age (Murray 224).

I constantly debate with my own thoughts, I change my mind and sometimes even strengthen my viewpoint on something. They key word to my teaching is to incorporate active learning as much as possible. My students are immuned to complete worksheets after worksheets but never understood the reason behind the drilling. They also tend to wait for me to give them answers rather than think for themselves. I do understand that the children are not to be blamed as they have been trained to behave in such way where the teacher is supposed to know everything.
Hamowy articulate tells of some of the pitfalls Thomas Jefferson experienced before writing some powerful and needful historical document that mark a new era in America and how he was trained by William Small, a historian researcher and instructor who taught on moral philosophy and rhetoric. Hamowy verbalizes with insightful truths and he says, “that the Declaration was imputed with the status of forging a new nation, of "inventing America," out of the disparate elements and conflicting interests represented by the colonial government ”. The writer shows amazing penmanship in giving account of this historical document that reshape our nation and
Throughout my childhood, the idea of having a college education was importantly emphasized. As a result, it was my responsibility to be the first generational child to excel in my studies and achieve a life of good fortune and accomplishments. In the beginning, I found the stress of having further education to be a great weak point, but as I grew older, I began to realize the many rewards I have gained by having the skill to be literate. Learning to read and write became the basis of my development.
Students should learn about the value the novel provides from that time-period in which Mark Twain wrote, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.

The main reason is that the teachers make you think intensively and to think critically. The purpose of education is that they teach one to think intensively and to think critically. MLK said “education which stops with efficiency may prove the greatest menace to society. I do have to agree with this one because you do have to think intensively and critically to understand better what they
The Heart of Higher Education argues the need to refocus education on teaching to the student as a whole being. Over the years, higher education has become very specialized, and has lost the original goal of producing good citizens. Transformative learning through integrative education can help change the direction of higher education. This holistic approach can be seen as addressing the needs of the soul, and thus providing a spiritual element to education. In this paper, I will reflect upon how The Heart of Higher Education helped me understand the spiritual or holistic nature of leadership while also identifying strategies for nurturing this practice, expand my capacity for assisting others during challenging times, and increase my compassion
What I learned that certain events may occur and it will change your thought over something.

The leadership skill I used was to complete project effectively because I had to concentrate what I was writing about.

In the Film “Dead Poet Society”, both of these concepts are shows through many examples from the school’s old methods of a banking concept, to Mr Keating’s, played by Robin Williams, demonstration of a “problem-poser”.

He personally is open to learning new things from the people he meets and because of that the RZA in the Wu-Tang clan is known as a teacher. The RZA believes that no one stops learning in life even if their teachers. This is made clear when the RZA states, "But a real teacher is also a student, someone who never stops learning"(7). This quote shows that the RZA believes that a real teacher is not just a teacher they are also students because they never stop learning new information or life lessons gained through experiences in life.
The Dichotomies of our Education “Quit bitchin.”, said a former history teacher of Duncanville’s High school to student Jeff Bliss on May 2013, when he tried to explain to his teacher that handing out children packets of information while sitting behind a desk is not a form of teaching. Jeff Bliss is a former student of Duncanville’s High school, known for boisterous classroom rant that went viral in 2013. Now of days we don’t see children standing up to their teachers when their education isn’t up to par, but as technology is advancing we get to know more about this world than ever before and we are given a wider view of the world while the quality of our education is diminishing. Students often have credulity when it comes to education
