Every morning my dad would wake up earl to prepare us a delicious breakfast. Arepa is a Hispanic flatbread made from maize dough with cheese on top. One time my dad is in the kitchen making some for us and I asked him how did he learn to make arepas. He just told me "by watching my mom all the time when I was young." So I wanted to learn to make it so I can one day make arepas for my kids.
The strategies exist and programs have been implemented; like the NCLB program (No Child Left Behind), also schools and families that are socially and economically gifted are able to help their own children successfully transit into university and later on into the workforce. The steps to achieve it are there, the challenge now is to make it accessible to these Hispanic families and their communities. Ideas in public policy, when it comes to immigrants, are limited, but some of the things the schools should be required to do, is improve instructions and tools for the teachers so they are able to reach these immigrant students and their parents, especially in those states where the number of English language learners is a new
The next day my mom picked me up early from school so that we can go and tour my soon to be school. When we got to my soon to be school I was very nervous the principal named Mrs.Nybo gave me and my mom a school tour.We looked in the 6th grade hall and there was a bunch of kids that I did not know. Then at the end of the tour we just talked about ipads and all of the things that they had at this school. The next day I went to school and all of my friends sat with me at lunch and we talked and my friend Jillian asked me why I
Children in poverty isolate themselves from students at school in have nobody to lean on but themselves. They are more likely to be bullied because of their grades. Middle class students are able to afford tutors in receive that extra help. Something needs to be done with children in poverty. Children in poverty deserves to be treated differently because of their financial stability.
Once I was ready for school my mom offered me a ride to school which does not normally happen. I asked why she was giving me a ride today and she said it was so i could save my legs for tonight. Once I got to school it was just like any other day. The only difference was that i was really nervous for tonight's race, it was on my mind all day. It’s a home meet so I had time to walk home and eat a couple of granola bars and drink a glass of water, I didn’t want to have to run on a full stomach.
Studies do show more positive behavior in kids whose parents took parenting classes. However, data on the influence of parenting class on child maltreatment is still somewhat unknown and although studies are indicating a decrease in the maltreatment of children more work needs to be done. The other major argument against parenting classes that many feel parents shouldn’t have to take classes and take power into their own hands in raising their kids. Many parents also feel stressed out by parenting classes making them feel depressed and even more inadequate as parents when they don’t do
To sum it up, paying student for good grades can lead to practical problems in teacher classroom. When considering the choice of paying student for good grade or not, the choice should definitely be not to pay student for good grades. Kids should not be paid for good grades because it gives pressure to students to inflate their grades, can lead to external motivators that may be affective and well intended and kids should be satisfied with their own accomplishment to success. For those who say paying for good grade is something every parents should do, it is not because kids are being bribed to do well in school. School is their own job and the own
For example, if a male does not have a father to discipline him, he may turn into a kid that fights at school, because he does not have that discipline that he would get from a father. However, just because they only have a mother does not mean they will end up violent. As long as their mother raises them correctly, they will be a well adjusted citizen. It is also stated that if a single mom has a child they may become poor. Robert Franklin, author of the article “Children Need Both Parents, Even after Divorce” , implies, “single mothers with children living with them are far more likely to live in poverty than is any other segment of society”.
I initially did not question the reasons that I incorporated both Mexican and American traditions into my life, but now I recognize how my identity has been shaped through my unique upbringing. Walking into my Kindergarten classroom was a quick awakening of the fact that I differed from others around me. I walked into school eager to share with others about the presents I received from the Three Wise Men as a result of the Mexican tradition that was celebrated at my house earlier that morning. Being the 6 year old self I was, I ran up to my friends to brag about my toys and
Rong explains, “In many cases, Asian American students are expected to succeed without particular attention, assistance, or support, despite their English language learner status.” Asians are perceived as the ones who will excel in any class, but what about the ones who need more assistance with their studying? Teachers cannot label all of their Asian students as the smartest in the class, they must take on each individual to find out their specific need in order to enhance the overall learning experience. Stereotypes give wrong conceptions to everyone; consequently, the labeling blocks students from reaching their full
In this practicum I will narrate an interview that was done with a Hispanic parent. I will describe her and her family structure. I will also elaborate on her involvements in her children academics, and teacher parent relationship. Also better ways to encourage parents to get involved in their children education will be added, and how teachers can assist with making the parents feel welcomed inside of the classroom. On Monday November 14, I asked a parent at a childcare center would they mind having a thirty-minute interview with Ms. Key, concerning their child’s education and parent teacher partnership.
Through Kozol’s Savage Inequalities: Children in America’s Schools, it can be observed that children like those at Morris High are taught about racial inequalities, but are not taught to recognize white privilege. In addition, they seem to only be passionate about issues that have potential to benefit them personally. Helping children like those in East
Teachers and other professionals require more training to work effectively with interpreters and pick up on body language and social, nonverbal cues. Teachers also need more training to work with bilingual students and their families. Wolfe and Duran (2013) also suggested that professionals provide knowledge to parents about IDEA and current laws concerning special education, informing them of their rights and the responsibilities of the school. Parents should be provided special training about the IEP process to become familiar with the steps and their role in the meeting. Access to other parents with students involved in special education could provide parents with a network of support.
We can notice students ' academic achievement are increasing when parents involve in the education of their children (Ramirez, 2003). On the other hand, some parents do not make any effort to help their children at home although "the family is the most influential context for learning" (Copple & Bredekamp, 2009). Maybe they think teachers have a better understanding of how to educate their children, therefore they avoid of becoming involved in the classroom or talking with teachers too much. As Latino parents mention that, we have to help our children in every way possible. Simply because we do not speak English very well does not mean that we cannot support our children to succeed in school.
To assist migrant learners with the transition into a new culture, schools can recruit cultural and language diversity educators that will serve as role models to students. Schools can also ensure cultural acceptance throughout the school environment. Parents, especially mothers, are the sources of motivation for migrant learners. Schools need to ensure that they are extending resources and materials to the family unit of migrant learners. These resources should be language friendly and individualized for the migrant family.Opening the doors of the school and understanding the culture of migrant learners is a needed service that differs from mainstream learners.
