Graff feels that teachers should base some of their lesson on what students have a connection so they can be more focus because they are interested and not bored. He talks about how if schools and colleges will connect with the kids that are "Street Smart" they won't do a poor job in school they will do fairly better if they were more intact with the topic itself. Graff explains to us his growing up in the "hood" you were more respected for being street smart then you was for being book smart. It took a discussion about toughness for him to notice how intellectual he was, but he as just different from others , it wasn't about everything it was just about things he had a strong interest in. He noticed from how he us to have serious verbal altercations about sports and how he acknowledge the difference in players through
For example, utilizing rap music or pop music that students listen to and have interest in drawing their attention. Making learning interactive, by building on what the student already knows. That pursuit of student’s interest from questioning, dialogue, and just focusing on building relationships. Impoverished children have that need to belong to something, and seek out attention that may not be given at home (Ciaccio, 2000). Relationship building will assist in cooperation to allow students to take ownership of their own education.
They could have visited each other more often and have “get to know you” conversations, if he had followed God’s way. God probably would have referred to Proverbs 17: 17a, which was written by Solomon. It says, ”A friend loves at all times.” Sam and I could have applied that verse by being a friend who loves others at all times and cares for people. God’s ways is not our ways, which are lesser than His
Appiah’s mechanically effective assertion contrasts with the content of argument, and its flawed foundation. Of the many ideas that Appiah presents to discuss his idea of Cosmopolitanism, one of the main premises on he bases his argument is that “we must care for the fate of all human beings, inside and outside our own societies” (87). This premise is based on the erroneous assumption that all humans have the same regard for others, and the daily world tragedies caused by human hands, things such as school shootings, terrorism, kidnappings, homicide, etc., contradict this idea. Appiah then goes on to say, “It is the obligation of every human being to do his or her fair share in making sure that everybody gets what they are entitled to” (95).
The diversity of student backgrounds, abilities and learning styles makes each person unique in the way he or she reacts to information. The intersection of diverse student backgrounds and active learning needs a comfortable, positive environment in which to take root. Dr. King continues by explaining, “Education which stops with efficiency may prove the greatest menace to society. The most dangerous criminal may be the man gifted with reason, but with no morals.” From back then to today’s society, kids are failing because they lack those morals that they need to succeed.
UID- 141077 R.NO -149 When you see “Pleasantville” for the first time,it doesn’t strike you hard enough how much sociological theory has just been served to you. Thus,when I was watching it for the first time my mind was going in circles about the following pattern. Consumption-Artifacts-Profane-Thought-Perception-Distinguishing-Convenience-Questions-Resistance-Novelty-Loss and Gain. The word connect is aiming to give an explanation of how at any particular point in time every discourse lived by people follows, if not rigidly, but closely related “patterns”.
This unit is designed to purposefully integrate KLAs such as; History, Geography, Science, Drama, Maths and English allowing students to deepen their knowledge and fully immerse their learning of this topic in varied real world contexts (Hudson, 2012). The key teaching strategies incorporated in this unit of work are peer teaching, cooperative learning giving students an authentic real world learning experience (Scholl. et al, 2016), explicit teaching, scaffolding and inquiry based learning. These strategies are expected to foster KLA integration (Reynolds, 2014) to support the student 's learning
At Harmony School of Discovery we have a very tight knit group of students. When Discovery first opened as a new school it opened it’s doors to kids from everywhere and from every which background. Us students were forced to come together and start fresh with virtual strangers, leaving behind everything familiar. This reality forced us to build new bonds with people going through the same hurdles as us, adjusting to a new school and a disparate environment. We learned how to nurture and preserve close relationships among our classmates, relationships between teachers and students, and relationships between students and administration.
No matter their perceived abilities or geographic locations, all learners can access resources, experiences, planning tools, and information that can set them on a path to acquiring expertise unimaginable a generation
In Appiah's essay "Racial Identities" the author illustrates the point that just because an individual's extrinsic appearance looks as though he or she should belong to a certain group of people it is ultimately up to them to choice their identity. His principal and abiding concern is how we as individuals construct ourselves in a language with the social condition in a persons everyday life. Appiah analyzes the convolution of this process of individuals forming into one identity, emphasizing the opportunities as well as the dangers for self-creation in today’s a culturally mixed world. Appiah’s critique of these large collective identities (whites, Africans, African Americans, and Hispanics) aren't designed to deny their legitimacy but to
Due to the invention of modern technology, America has become the melting pot of different cultures and it shows most people are open to becoming cosmopolitan. The invention of technology have given society the ability to communicate with each other from all over the world. Americans have not fully embraced the idea of mutually agreeing about a topic through conversation alone because not every generation of people can see eye to eye. For example, the millennials and the Baby Boomers have two different perspectives on life because of their upbringing and many other factors. There is no peaceful mutual agreement between topics such as abortion, gay marriage or police brutality between the generations. Each group has grown up with different values so they have preconceived notions regarding certain topics which is why we need to “value language [it] helps shape common responses of thought, action, and feeling” (Appiah 73). Conversations are important because it opens up our minds to change, and it stops the spread of imaginative engagement, people need to experience certain things for themselves instead of hearing about it. New technology has caused Kwame Anthony Appiah’s vision of cosmopolitanism to come
“The Honor Code” is an interview with Philosopher Kwame Anthony Appiah, produced by Katy Chevingny, in which honor is used to justify violence, while introducing a way for brutality to come to a halt. Anthony Appiah, explains that violence often occurs due to an individual’s quest to acquire respect. However, a person’s ideology is subject to change if new evidence demonstrates that old traditions were dehumanizing, such as when he states, “People can recognize that something is wrong, but still be honor-bound to do it… you have to get people to see that what they are getting from it, the recovery of family honor, that they are not getting that” (Appiah). Through the use of this analysis, Appiah is able to deliver a potential solution to “honor
