Assimilation was used to integrate other cultures into the dominant culture ( (Spring, 2010). Assimilation is pertinent today in many schools. The literature and curriculum used to educate students’ in today’s society favors the languages and beliefs of the dominant culture. Many students of other cultures do not have the opportunities
Instead of being punished if students where to pick their own classes they could focus more on the class that they already like and are good at and then continue to advance in that class rather than being held back by a class that they don 't understand. Schools should allow their students to choose their own classes because students would be more focused and would benefit more from learning about classes that will help them in their future. All schools from
LDC-5d 3.With prompting and support, students will use books and other media that communicate information to learn about the world by looking at pictures, asking questions, and talking about the information. LDC-9j 4. Students will associate sounds with the letters at the beginning of some words, such as awareness that two words begin with the same letter and the same sound. LDC-12i
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.
Student will participate in classroom activities and will be able to focus on academic concerns when they are not concerned for their safety. Additionally, students who may experience here ridicule or hazing will re-engage more quickly in a consistent and safe classroom setting. Common student behaviors designed for testing teacher consistency and classroom limits will diminish when students begin to understand the responses are in fact consistent. Therefore, this energy can be redirected for personal and academic growth. Furthermore, more serious student behavior, as a form of language, may also diminish in a safe and consistent classroom environment.
The system is still very flawed and unequal in its teachings. I think that the future of education is going to move into the direction of applying altered strategies to close the academic achievement gap between minority and the majority students. These strategies could include more inclusive school organizations and curriculum. This more inclusive program will include better skills in teaching students with a language barrier. So it allows for students who are not English speaking to stay up-to-date in their education without falling behind.
Title: Introduction Cjs school is made to help children find their place in society and help them reach their goals and have a quality education. Cjs School is different because students choose what classes they will take to prepare them for the future they choose, the school offers normal classes as well as classes not offered at high school, but they take whichever they want to help them succeed in the future. The school will be set up in order to help them reach that future and provide a safe place for them to be themselves. At this school, students will take the classes that they want to help them succeed in the future of their choice, instead of classes chosen for them that everyone else has to take. Emerson said in his essay “A man
The importance of pre-referral process is to ensure that student tries special accommodations and modifications before student referred to a special education. Some changes in the classroom can make turn student’s performance around and special education services will not be necessary. For instance, changes like make classroom more accessible, sitting positioning, provide additional instructions, and use positive reinforcements can drastically change the dynamics of the classroom. There are some benefits of pre-referral process, it provides forum for teacher, parents and other team members to talk about student and his/hers needs. Also, it improves communication between teacher and parents by involving families in the process.
The provision of a variety of persuasive texts will enable them to build an awareness of the common features of this genre by “Talking about the purpose, Identifying the possible intended audience, Drawing attention to the text organisation and Highlighting the type of language used.”I Will then continue to encourage the children to analyse different versions of a text with the multi-text model in mind. “Children are required to rank these samples by effectiveness. Then use the information gained from discussion to devise rules and frameworks for writing that form.” Proceeding to teach the conventions and strategies of the genre through modelled writing, in which “the teacher composing texts in front of the class, thinking aloud about what is being done and explaining decisions” (Evans 1991). Informing children on what content to include/omit, what language to use etc creating a purpose for the task. Having successfully done so I will then utilise ‘Shared writing’, consulting the children for ideas “Children volunteer parts of the story and the teacher writes it down on a flipchart or whiteboard, thus modelling the writing conventions.” Followed by Guided writing, in which the children would work in small groups or pairs, using their framework to plan their writing.Where appropriate, I may have the opportunity to conduct mini lessons, helping them to
With that much variation with modern-day English, attention must be made by educators to how the variation has occurred. Accordingly, they must also respond in a manner that exemplifies equal learning opportunities for all classes and cultures (Boyd & Brock, 2014, p.19). Educators also acknowledge that literacy is an enhancement of the written and spoken language (Gee & Hayes, 2011, p.11). Rich-meaning literacy lessons encourage students to become engaged with all literacies; these literacies encompass the elements of the written word, visual and audio media, digital and multimedia texts (Green & Campbell, 2006, p.6). The period in time, geographical location, cultural influences and social-standing, all play an equally important role in the creation of the English language.
