2.1 Learning a foreign language by children in the middle stage of training is once again an essential subject of conversation concerning teachers, linguists and parents. Psychologists clarified the fact that the average school age is considered the most favorable period for this type of activity. The current situation creates a growing public demand for qualified teachers. Their absence leads to rather sad consequences. People barely holding basics of the language, find themselves able to teach the children of secondary school age children because of this knowledge, supposedly, it is enough.
“Good feedback practice is not only about providing accessible and usable information that helps students improve their learning, but it is also about providing good information to teachers” (Nicol and Macfarlane, 2006, p. 214). Quality assessment and effective feedback have a strong impact in systemizing educational governance. In the same way, it can enable all learners to enhance their learning or leads to increase learning and teachers in their teaching. Some research evidence such as Nicol and Macfarlane –Dick (2006)
Dual language immersion programs should be implemented into every elementary school curriculum because children in these programs acquire a second language, which helps them develop useful skills, become more aware of cultures around the world, and, contrary to the opposition’s claim, it does help students learn better in school. Dual language immersion programs are very beneficial for elementary school students because learning a second language helps young children develop a greater capacity to listen. Listening is a skill that is needed throughout life. When students have a greater capacity to
Due to the fact that the curriculum, instruction, assessment, school funding, and desegregation aren’t made for ALL students to succeed we as educators must use what we know about our students, education, and history to inform our teaching. It is important to use the experiences and culture of our students (getting to know them) to make our instruction more relatable. In classrooms students shouldn’t feel like their stories aren’t heard. Educators must construct a positive classroom environment so that students will feel comfortable being themselves and taking risks with their language (ELL) which includes ALL students not just one population. This might mean making changes or adding to the existing curriculum.
Teachers and fellow students will also provide help for students with disabilities; in this way, students with learning disabilities will be motivated to study as they feel that they are a part of a group instead of being isolated in special places. Thus, they will achieve higher grades. Moreover, they will be greatly engaged in the society as they are building bridges with their peers from several backgrounds. On the long run, teachers, parents, and the society as a whole would develop. Students with learning disabilities should be included in the “normal” classroom because it improves their academic performance, social behavior, and communication language.
Starting off with negative part of homeschooling. There aren 't many negative stuff about it but the main negative point is that students who are homeschooled would have less communication with friends and more with family member, which is good and bad at the same time. There are many positive things about homeschooling. Some advantages of homeschooling is academic achievements, implications on social development, leadership, community involvement, parent determining the curriculum and their children 's schooling schedule, create strong bonds with their children, adapt teaching methods best suiting how their children learn, spend extra time with their children on difficult concepts and move ahead after children master a subject or concept, provide religious and ethical instruction for their children, protect or shelter children from school violence, drugs, and other negative behaviors children in public schools frequently encounter, provide their children with the personal interaction that teachers in large classrooms are not able to provide, Spend extra time helping their children develop any special talents they possess, including musical, athletic, etc, enjoy spending more time with their children, assist their children during adolescence and other trying times and my favorite is to take their children on vacations when public school is still in session. Also, that the impact of homeschooling in this manner often improves emotional and psychological development in children.
Another contributing factor to academic achievement is teachers as they play a significant role in teaching and providing a healthy learning environment for children. Teachers who are biased and treat children differently based off of ethnicity are contributing to the achievement gap majorly. Parents are another contributing factor to academic achievement as they play a significant role in supporting and encouraging their children. Lastly, time is also very meaningful for academic achievement as children do need the time to do homework and
Many of these students I have found are very smart, but they struggle with the language barrier. As a teacher I would like to be able to communicate with them in both English and Spanish so that I can be sure they are getting the information and are able to process the information. Our jobs as teachers is reach out to those that struggle, these students may struggle for many assorted reasons but the purpose of us as teachers is to be that helping hand that can make a difference in their lives. We are not to pass judgment on students, our job is to educate regardless of any differences our students may have. If we find that a certain group is doing poorly we need to find the problem and correct it.
They have sponsored projects in areas such as literacy, numeracy, Māori education, the Best Evidence Synthesis program, and teacher professional learning (Levin, 2011). Best Evidence Synthesis connects research to policy and practice. Levin (2011), explained how some of the projects that the Ministry supports show very substantial benefits for students. However, schools are resisting anything that seems like an obligation from the Ministry. Therefore, this resistance could make this solution not beneficial since
her opinion to keep grade inflation away from happening in the future, she said “teachers should be truthful to the students and make them love education because grade inflation is an issue across the board”. She also said “Students are here to learn and to expand their knowledge and teachers are doing the best they can to make them love learning”. However, she thinks that if a teacher tells the student that he or she did a fabulous job when it was not that good, did they really understand what they have done? It is not fair to them. She strongly believes in encouraging students and telling them where they stand.
