Dockterman builds up her argument to persuade her audience by including facts to support her opinion. Dockterman includes facts from studies that have been involved with children developing with technology, like M I T. The facts support and help develop Dockterman’s opinion by stating how giving kids the advantages of technology can help them learn at a younger age and stay up to date with different ways of applying to jobs/colleges. At the beginning of Dockterman’s essay she includes statistics showing how much technology effects children now in everyday life. She also then points out how there are many parents sending their children to camps for a technology detox. Dockterman gives examples of how parents are pushing their children away
In the essay "The Digital Parent Trap" by Elina Docktermank, Elina presented an argument about the advantages of technology when used by kids from the age of 3-18. Throughout the essay, she used many different techniques to strengthen her essay and persuade the readers. `One of the first way that she used to make her essay more creditable is by citing creditable sources. First she used a quote from Mimi Ito, an anthropologist at the University of California at Irvine that 's studying how technology affects young adults, "They 're no longer limited by what 's offered in school". This makes the reader think that having technology no longer limit students to what is taught in school but rather we can have all the information in the world at
Purpose: The purpose of this speech is to persuade a parent whose child has received a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder to provide their child with critical early life intervention therapy as well as educate the parent on ABA therapy in addition to touching on a handful of other possible therapies. After delivering this speech, I want my audience to understand why early intervention will provide their child with the best chance of matriculation into society later in life. I want to prompt every audience member to research further therapies available as treatment for their child’s disorder and ultimately decide to enroll their child in a therapy. Intended Audience: My perfect audience would be parents and family members in relation to a young child, between the ages of eighteen months and three years old, that has recently been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Parents and family members with a child of any age would also benefit from the information delivered in this speech although older children may not receive such impactful results.
In 1700`s education wasn 't for everyone. It was for people who had the money to pay for it, but now that changed because kids are given the chance to go to school without their parents paying for it. “The President’s 2017 budget request recognizes the importance of this goal through significant new investments in three key areas: high-quality early learning; stronger and more diverse schools; and increased access to evidence and data to help all of us improve outcomes for students.”("EDgov Blog"). Over the last seven years”, the Obama Administration has fought to improve outcomes for underserved students through its major education initiatives by supporting states in their efforts to ensure quality teaching in every classroom; raise standards for all students; build systems to improve instruction; and significantly improve low-performing schools.”("Equity of Opportunity"). These two quotes show that people are trying to make kids education better.
The U.S. Department of Education mission is to “promote student achievement and preparation for global competitiveness by fostering education excellence and ensuring equal access” (“Progress in Our Schools”). Standardized testing is a form of testing that aids students develop better understanding through testing which leads to student achievement and success in the future. Student achievement should be the main priority in any school because children are our future. For years, standardized testing has been a controversial topic amongst students, parents, and
Only having had the perspective of a student, it was reassuring to see educators seeing a problem and actively seeking a way to fix the problem. Though testing is necessary with the current structure of evaluating students, there is a conscience effort to improve schooling for students. Hoping to stay teaching in Eastern Washington, I am excited to see teachers setting the foundation for change. I hope that I have the opportunity to not only help my students inside the classroom but also in a more political way that will help students that I am not teaching. Like many things that I’ve experienced in these last ten weeks of class, my thoughts on education have definitely been
The second strategy is to enhance family involvement. Family has always been the most important link between students and school. Family members are the one who give the most support and many children find imperative to have their families by their side in their academic journey. Gorski states that it is important to make sure that family involvement are accessible to all parents, but especially those who work multiple jobs, don’t have paid leave and transportation. The third strategy is to incorporate art into instruction, because these programs create a sense of engagement among low income students as well as retention.
According to Cox (2009) technology has replaced textbooks and it prepares students for the future. Early childhood is the foundation where using technology has completely transformed the way we live or lives and developing these technological skills in students so they will be prepared to enter the workforce once they complete their schooling. Morgan (2017) discusses how credibility is important to research study because it is crucial to gathering the most up to date and relevant information for your research in order to establish credibility within your writing. It is also a way to prove that the qualifications, experience and education of the author are credible. Walsh(2012) suggest that Effective evaluation of the credibility of sources
Compulsory Public Education is a Form of Social Control It is common belief that compulsory schooling is good for society and it helps us become a more enlightened group of people. Millions of parents send their children off to school every morning in the United States of America; some believe it is good for their young child’s mind and others just do it because failing to comply is against the law. But we need to ask ourselves why school is mandatory, why do we force our children to attend school? The answer to that question is to maintain social order. The United States’, along with many other western countries, government forces us to attend a school that does not promote originality or creativity; but rather mediocrity and conformity.
After years of struggle between teachers and Students and the use of these smart phones in school, new educational trends are actually encouraging the use of these devices” This is another way of stating, smart phones are already a part of the school system and they aren’t going anywhere. With that being said, teachers should take advantage of this and just use them towards their own, and the Students
In addition, the more parents are involved in their children 's learning, the more significant are the achievement effects. The Center for Public Education (CPE) ("Center for Public Education," 2011) reports National survey data which shows that attending school meetings or events is the leading form of parent participation in schools, followed by school fundraising activities. According to (Henderson & Mapp, 2002), attending parent conferences, open houses and other types of school functions provide an exceptional type of parent engagement because these functions help parents to understand the school structure and get to know
Ken Robinson gave a TED talk regarding creativity not being as nourished in schools as it should be. He talks in respect to the uncertainty of the future; and instead of telling the succeeding generation that they need to stick with a career path that will remain steady and beneficial, we need to support the paths they 've chosen. In addition to the parents pushing the kids to become successful in the arts, the schools they attend also need to have a game plan to help put these children on an accelerated and successful career path. He explains how in all education systems math and science stand at the top of the "hierarchy" with the arts at the bottom. The system comes about based on two ideas, subjects that prove useful for work and academic ability.
College readiness is a topic of great importance to several groups, including the High school teachers who prepare the students prior to college, parents because they are aware that their children hopes and dreams of a bright future depends almost entirely on it, employers who desire qualified workforce with the ability to enable the companies to be productive and globally competitive, and the government officials who appreciate the value of having educated citizens (McCormick, 2011). However, it has been noted that a large numbers of high school graduates are not adequately prepared for post-secondary education therefore showing the need for a good college readiness school curriculum (Center for College Readiness, 2015). SLIDE 3 Data supporting the argument Rigorous course work like IB and AP in high school better prepares students for post-secondary education. They also ensure that more students successfully
Ms. Maloney said that the majority of their students would not receive any type of pre-school education if not for the Head Start center. When asked if she believed that the programs offered through the Head Start profited the targeted groups, Ms. Maloney emphatically stated “yes, children who receive early educational intervention go on to perform better in school.” The U.S Department of Health and Human Services website offers testimony to support this belief. Oscar Dominguez writes this; “Head Start has offset many of the challenges I faced early in my life, including a father in prison and a mother on welfare raising two boys in public housing. With a hand up from programs like Head Start, I was able to graduate near the top of my Texas public high school class, from Stanford University, and from the Master in Business Administration program at San Francisco State. Today, I work in a field where I can pay forward this type of empowerment, by administering programs that help people start and develop assets through entrepreneurship and
