Standardized tests have been historically used to measure how students compare with each other and how much of a particular curriculum they have learned. Increasingly, standardized tests are being used to make major decisions about students, such as grade promotion or high school graduation, and schools(Galegroup). Standardized testing is not an effective measurement of how capable and knowledgeable a student is due to it negatively impacting schools, its serious limitations, and its harm on student’s learning.

Sir Ken Robinson advocated for a change in the education system and societal perception as a result of the decreasing creativity in children. In order to accomplish this, Robinson relied primarily on anecdotal stories with little statistical data to support his claims. Even though this is the case, Robinson’s argument is mainly effective in conveying his claim. The anecdotal stories have the most impactful relation to his claim because they offer substantial connections to the audience. The qualitative evidence also makes Robinson’s claim seem prominent in
Artwork is important because it allows you to visually express your emotions through colorful even abstract. Art can even be a reflection of our society. Art shows diversity in a person’s life. That’s exactly what Romare Bearden, August Wilson, as well as myself portrayed into our collage. Without art we would not have true visual beauty. Art encourages kids to express themselves. Art speaks words you may not be able to say. Arts enable us to imagine the unimaginable, and to connect us to the past, present, and the future, sometimes even all at
In the essay “Doing Nothing Is Something”, author Anna Quindlen uses the rhetorical strategies Ethos, Pathos, and Logos to encourage children today to spend more time doing nothing. Quindlen believes children in America are overscheduled and never have time to explore their creativity that presents itself while the mind is idle. Parents, being the target audience of this essay, should allow their child downtime to explore their mind and creativity.
All five of the activities were chosen in order to encourage children’s numeracy skills. The activities were based around the development of the four fundamental skills of numeracy learning. These are the ability to name and draw basic shapes and colours, able to count up to ten, begin to understand time and start to recognise patterns and routines.
Steve Boss, is the coordinator for the Black Academic Excellence (BAEC) in Student Academic Services where, he serves the black students population at California Polytechnic State University. BAEC is a program that provides a safe place for black students to build a community and partake in an inclusive environment of black history and culture. In addition, it provides academic support to increase retention and degree completion. Historically, black students have being underrepresented in higher education institutions, with only 4.7 percent of the undergraduate population and have lower rate of graduating than Whites and Asians (Grier-Reed, Tabitha, Madyun, Na’im, Buckley, & Christopher, 2008). The authors cite the American Council on Education
"My contention is all kids have tremendous talents. And we squander them, pretty ruthlessly" (Robinson, 02:57). Ken Robinson addresses the thought that creativity is just as important as literacy is in our schools and education. In his TEDtalk, the speaker Ken Robinson different ways in which we could change the way literacy is seen as more important than creativity and then make them equal. Robinson uses lots of different examples and stories to help convince his audience and help them understand the issues at hand. Ken Robinson successfully convinces his intended audience that even though literacy is understood as being more important in schools over creativity it is not more important they should be treated as equal.
Ken Robinson delivers a TED talk on “schools kill creativity” filmed in February 2006. The talk aims to challenge the education system and the fact that it has little emphasis on the creativity of individuals. Robinson notes that children should not only be made to pursue their studies but also follow their passions and their interests which lie in their talents. He refers to Picasso’s statement that every child is born an artist (6:05). Robinson urges the crowd to rethink the strategies they use to educate the world. The speaker quotes that people do not grow into creativity but out of it or rather educated out of it. Robinson asserts that education

Education is very important for everyone and it will only get more important. Schooling is just plain bad. It used to serve a purpose, like the heart in a person 's body, but now it is basically just boring students more and more. Nowadays at the end of the day, we all just want to go home. Many aspects of public education are problematic. For example, the usefulness in grading systems (other than IB schools) are questionable. It cages up creativity and makes the students unmotivated. Also many times the grading system is just wrong. When students write something and give it to the teacher to grade sometimes they can get a horrible grade. That is surprising for the students because it’s like they think its good and that they’re going to get a good grade where in reality they get a horrible one. As Picasso once said, “ All children are born artists, the problem is to remain an artist as they grow up." Children are not frightened of being wrong. Being wrong isn’t the same thing as being creative at all. If you 're not prepared for being wrong, you’ll never come up with anything original.By the time we get to be adults, most kids have lost that. The kids ( now adults) have

Art is one of the biggest influencers in today’s world. It has the ability to make positive changes in a number of ways. It is a powerful form of expression used all around the world. In Yo-yo Ma’s writing, “Necessary Edges: Art, Empathy, and Education”, Ma discusses the importance of integrating arts in society and education; this differs from Rhys Southan’s writing, “Is Art a Waste of Time”, for it talks about how the “Effective Altruism” movement does not see art as valuable because it does not make major contributions to society. Art is a tool used to communicate with people; this tool positively impacts contemporary culture, for it brings different cultures closer together, changes opinions, and it is useful in education.
Most would agree that, in early stages of life, art is a detrimental and necessary part of any child’s early development and education. In fact, Pre-K through third grade’s education curriculum is usually centered around promoting early creativity and a fondness for learning. Kids learn math by counting colorful pieces of bricks. They learn both science and the basic principles of functionality by playing with train sets and toy cars. Their artistic endeavors even promote cognitive development (i.e., pressing a pencil or crayon harder will darken the color, while holding it
Creativity can be defined as the willingness to be courageous, adventurous, daring and to try new things. Creative people take risks and produce some of the best ideas. When designing and making, creative work is likely to bring about original knowledge which will incur risk taking. Innovation and risk taking are skills that are close together, everyone that knows it have to deal with creating something new everyday.
