Literature Review “Children know how to learn in more ways than we know how to teach them.” —Ronald Edmonds (1991) Each child learns in a different way, therefore if teachers are mainly focused on instructing the majority auditory/visual learners; the students who have different learning styles needs aren’t being met, which results in lack of basic skills moving forward. The idea of one instructional strategy fitting all is creating a void in classrooms; which in turn is failing to help those students struggling the most. Campbell, Helf, and Cooke, (2008) suggests a reason for some students’ ongoing lack of achievements that, “too often, students are instructed indirectly, watching and listening to the teacher or other students with little or no opportunity to actually read” (p. 268). Children who are unsuccessful early are more likely to start disliking reading and avoid it all together (Campbell et al., 2008). When children aren’t successful at reading from early on, they’re at a substantially higher risk of being unable to read at grade level (Campbell et al., 2008).

Due to preparation teens are overworked, overscheduled and overstressed, and it's taking a toll on the mental health. School psychologists say, students are aware of the high stakes attached to state exams. Students spend an excessive amount of class time preparing for them, and know that they will do poorly. Low test scores could ultimately cause a school to close or a teacher to lose a job. Students also can feel pressured by their inner drive to succeed, a quest for perfection or a fear of failure, especially if they may be unfamiliar with the English language or are not yet up to the reading or developmental level of the test in front of them (Frenette 5).

School and teachers can influence the extent and quality of learning for all students. Teacher’s beliefs, practices and attitudes are important for understanding and improving educational processes. They are closely linked to teachers’ strategies for coping with challenges in their daily professional life. Educators have control over numerous factors that influence motivation, achievement and behaviour of students. They are turning around their approach into a focus on creating positive school climate and responsive classroom as part of holistic quality education based on child rights where there is effective teaching and classroom management, thus enhancing students’ learning experiences.
Outstanding educators must possess many important qualities. They must be knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the subjects that they teach. If a teacher is knowledgeable and enthusiastic, their students will be more excited about what they need to learn, and see the teacher as a valuable resource. These educators must continue to pursue learning opportunities and use this new knowledge to improve their instruction. Students come to school at different academic levels.
