In the lives of every single person, education is being taught in a variety of ways. (The Value of Education). By learning through experiences and communicating with each other. As the growth of maturity and intelligence develops, education is proving to be the key to a better future.

Due to the determination of the students to become successful, they have instilled a mindset within themselves to achieve their every goal though they are still young.

Throughout my high school career, I had the opportunity to take honors and Advanced Placement courses for the majority of my classes. The Advanced Placement courses allowed for a better understanding of the subject as well as providing the extensive work often similar to college classes. Learning the subjects from college in high school, such as English 101, even if not receiving the college credit for it, allowed for an understanding of the skills taught. When it came time to take the class in college it was more of a refreshment than an entire new set of skills to
The literature will show the importance of the laws that enabled students with disabilities to attend college with accommodations to ensure access both in and out of the classroom. Throughout the review, persistence and retention, as well as contemporary issues of interest, will be examined more closely, particularly by comparing four year institutions to two year institutions (community colleges). Another important factor to be examined will be the role of transitioning into higher education both for the general student population and students with disabilities. In addition, student development theories and their impact in identifying strategies that are important for increasing persistence/retention during students‘ first year of study will be explored. Some of the strategies reviewed will be the advisor/counselor contact, freshman
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.
