The influences of societall interactions, enivoronment and culture are three factors that determine the gap in students vocabulary and literacy development. The 30 million word gap by age three refers to the “ amount of experience with children of different SES groups might bring to an intervention begins in preschool” ( ,2003). Children's vocabulary
If the child is getting encouraged and praised by their careers as they learn then with can build up their self-esteem and confidence as if they didn’t then this could make the children have insecurities about their own abilities to do things and would have a need of people reassuring them, this could lead up to them having Lack of motivation and having a poor self-esteem about doing new things. When growing up children will look for role models this could be their carer. If their carer had poor social and communications skills then this could have an effect on the child as they would reflect form them and wouldn’t know any difference, so this would affect their development. Children that have limited opportunities to develop their communication skills could have poor behaviour and attention span. It varies for a children’s expectation as if they had past experiences as if they had parents that had poor experiences in the education system then this may think that the child if the same and make them have low expectations on
Standardized test has been the topic of a debate for over a decade now with parents getting concerned about their children. A standardized test is any form of test that requires all test takers to answer the same questions, or a selection of questions from common bank of questions, in the same way, and it is scored in a “standard” or consistent manner, which makes it possible to compare the relative performance of individual students or groups of students. It is also used to hold teachers accountable for the performance of the students. It is primarily associated with large-scale tests administered to large populations of students. This is often used in achievement tests, aptitude tests, college-admissions tests, international comparison tests,
As an illustration, if your toddler said thank you after receiving something they had asked for, you should then praise the action by saying “it was very nice of you to say thank you”, rather than just saying “good job”. In turn, this helps the toddler understand the behavior that is being praised. In sum, then praising children is fundamental to their intelligence and development; however, such praise has to be carefully phrased. Intellectual and ability praise is not only harmful to the child's growth, but it can also be detrimental to the relationship between parents and their children. Furthermore, without the proper wording of the praise children may see it as empty and feel as though they lack the ability of the task at hand.
Self-worth is based on children 's self-assessment of their capabilities in comparison to others. Positive assessment suggests that it is worth to do because the individual is better in that activity than others. Negative assessment signs if there is a skill needed to develop. Becoming too many negative assessments leads the individual to a negative self-assessment and may result in an overall feeling of inadequacy (Cole and Cole, 2006). During adolescence it is the peer group and selected entertainment heroes who become increasingly important as models, especially if communication between parents and adolescents break down.
This observation allowed me to really process if the above question was to be true or false. Even-though my objective opinion would say treating children the same is to treat them fairly, my conscious would argue the opposite. Some children must receive individualized attention at different points
They can do this through: setting a good example; being positive; building up children’s confidence by focussing on the things that they’re good at, setting them achievable goals and targets; helping children to learn through their own experiences; reflective listening and giving the children confidence and positivity through love and affection. If a child is not confident they may find it hard to interact with other children, have a negative outlook on life, be less motivated and have behavioural problems. Overall, if a child lacks confidence, self-esteem and resilience their health and well-being will be hindered.
Carrying out regular observations is vital because it ensures that we put the pupils at the centre of our practice. Through observations we can discover if a child or young person has developed new skills, their likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses as well as their understanding of what they are expected to do. Observation helps us assess pupils progress; we can find out about the specific care and learning needs of each child. We can then plan the next steps in children’s
John Wooden is spot on with role models being the most powerful form of education. Showing someone the proper way to do something is better and more effective than telling them what to do. What is a role model? A person looked to as an example or to be imitated.
Repetition with positive rewards always makes out to be a better influence for a child’s upbringing and how they react to the set goal. I would like to say that Operant Conditioning is a better form of learning because it is strengthened by positive consequences or weakened by a negative consequence. You reward to improve behavior, or you take away or time-out to give them time to think about what they did wrong. Classical Conditioning is a learned conditioning stimulus, like conditioning yourself to study for exams in advance to pass classes. Effective planning for study time results in passing grades and passing your classes.
The article, “Coding’s Finest Hour” by Linda Jacobson is an overview of relatively new initiative, Hour of Code, which aims to introduce elementary children to computer coding. Hour of Code is in its third year and encourages schools to introduce coding to all students, including the very young. The article details the Hour of Code held every December and describes free coding activities available through the website Code.org. Students can decide to experiment with coding through three different tutorials that are very appealing to children. The tutorials use characters and settings from Minecraft, a popular online game, Frozen and Star Wars both based on popular
• What are the strengths of this assessment tool? This assessment allows for a more individualized approach to planning for specific children, while providing support to all. Using observation and anecdotal assessments provides multiple opportunities to view children learning and provides a more realistic view of their learning than an assessment, which only allows for right or wrong answers. •
