Liberal arts teach students how to adapt to the constant change seen in their surroundings. This idea correlates with the broad-based knowledge learned from the liberal arts. Ungar says,“It is far wiser for students to prepare for change- and the multiple careers they are likely to have- than to search for a single job track that might one day become a dead end.” (Ungar, 2017, p. 227) Because of the broad-based knowledge obtained from a liberal arts education, students are equipped to adapt to changes. Instead of having limited knowledge of a certain subject, they can have an expansion of knowledge. The liberal arts work in correlation with the STEM field.
By incorporating the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, faculty can layer this assessment with Socialization and Jablin’s Model of Organizational Assimilation (1987, 2001) to help develop and increase student retention/involvement in the classroom. By analyzing students sense-making (Weick, 1995), faculty can have a greater appreciation of what their students are thinking when they first begin class. Faculty will also have a better opportunity of addressing student concerns such as cultural accountability and meeting their educational needs in a communication style that is effective and understandable to each
Well-behaved members of society are highly desired, however, schools should not try to make students think and act the same, as individuality is important in society. With this, Counts describes his ideal education system to breed inquiring minds who question and investigate, who look at the world in many facets and not so simplistically. In conjugation, it needs to be a system that gives students such essentials that they could go on to any profession. As Counts says, "There is fallacy that the great object of education is to produce the college professor, that is, the individual who adopts an agnostic attitude towards every important social issue...who sees all sides of every question and never commits herself to any,... who consequently holds his judgement in a state of indefinite suspension, and who before the approach of middle age sees his powers of action atrophy and his social sympathies decay" (“George Counts” 216). His hope was to create well-rounded individuals with minds of their own.
These things would include the use of anecdotal records, how to better control certain behaviors in the classroom and school, and getting parents to be better involved in the school program to increase the knowledge and quality of the classroom. The anecdotal records with give me a chance to better understand the child as an individual and know what they do best at and what they need to improve on as well. Controlling certain behaviors will allow me to have better class management and less discipline in the classroom. Lastly, getting the parents involved in the program will allow me to improve the program to benefit other teachers and the children, make appropriate and fun activities for the children to enjoy, and improve my knowledge for the
This study could also inform those involved in the teaching of statistics to change students’ perception of statistics and impress upon them the relevance and importance of this discipline in their academic, professional and personal lives in order to motivate them to succeed academically. (Fraser & Killen, 2003, p. 255). Facilitators will also be in a position to improve student learning by emphasizing the positive aspects and decreasing the more unfavourable factors. 5. Method of investigation The methods and techniques to be used to conduct this research follows.
5). Thanks to the classes, teachers would be prepared and would feel more comfortable with the material that they are teaching. They should be able to teach the material in any way that they need to, in order to help the student better understand. Teachers can also do certain learning activities that are enjoyable to the students; making them enjoy going to school and eager to learn. Weimer also wrote, “A good learning experience where the student conquers challenging content, finds out something fascinating and through the process
An outrage among society today; high school students are not being admitted to their dream colleges based on ethnic background. Adolescents should not be burdened by the thought that they won’t get into the college they deserve to attend just based on their skin color. Affirmative Action is the cause of this appalling injustice in the college admissions process among big universities. There have been several cases where people have fought for their right to be admitted solely based on their qualifications. Universities’ use of Affirmative Action, and racial quotas in their admissions process should be exposed and terminated.
Civil Disobedience I hereby say that student loans is something that should not be dragging educated people down. We cannot allow the for-profit colleges and the banks to follow behind students and collect their wealth. “Everyone deserves a quality education. We need to come up with a better way to provide it than debt and default”(Taylor). Education should not vanish.
This goes to show that when a student engages in reasoning, which is an attribute of critical thinking, they tend to be more productive. Reflective learning which is linked to reasoning is therefore essential in becoming successful in university. Mache (2012) states that as a reflective student, going back on your previous work helps excel in the studies, reflecting on his learning allows the student to link his development to practical results and broadens the definition of what appears to be a useful activity. As a reflective learner the student will think about how he can use new information and abilities in his upcoming
For students that struggle with poverty education needs to be their way out of it. The way the students will be able to get out of the poverty would be with the proper highly qualified teacher. A teacher who makes these students feel safe in the environment they are coming to everyday, show them that they are cared about , make them they can do what they set their minds too (high
These institutions give educators the freedom to cultivate new teaching models and develop creative methods to meet students? needs. This unique flexibility is matched by strong accountability and high standards, so underperforming charter schools can be closed, while those that consistently help students succeed can serve as models of reform for other public schools. In an economy where knowledge is our most valuable asset, a good education is no longer just a pathway to opportunity ? it is an imperative.
