First, the liberal concept involves what is educationally worthwhile and essential while the child-centered position is determined by” how the worthwhile is best achieved” (p.119). In her examination, Sheppard determines that liberal engagement and liberal engagement mean two different things because each is different in its definition of the roles of the learner and the educator. Finally, in her conclusion, Sheppard determines that American schools have moved toward a progressive approach to engagement. In other words, educators value the acquisition of strategies that are “aimed at knowledge and skill acquisition”

The work of John Franklin Bobbitt and Ralph Tyler very much advocate Product curricular designs, maintaining that these designs are centred on the creation of a disciplined and “structured learning environment for students” (O’Neill 2015, p). The Product Model can be regarded as the historically tested and more ‘traditional’ method of developing curriculum. Teacher planning and the presentation of learning intentions to students is core to the
and design instruction that develops students' self-perceptions of their academic skills. And by large will lead a way for in making Quality primary education a dream come true. The present study titled ‘Teacher Efficacy in Relation to Teacher Motivation and Personality of Primary School Teachers is a survey study. In this study the researcher has made an earnest attempt to find out the relationship between Teacher Efficacy and its dimensions with Teacher Motivation and Personality of Primary School Teachers. This chapter presents the explanation and discussion on the above issues under the sub-title theoretical frame work, present status of the study, related to Teacher Efficacy, Teacher Motivation and Personality.
I consider it the gateway to my comprehension of these educational theories. This paper analyzes how the EDU310 course has influenced my understanding of social justice and diversity advocacy in the education system. EDU310 focuses majorly on the dynamic theoretical models applied in the learning environment to encourage active learning and teaching (Phoenix University,
Ishak and Nor Asikin (2003) stated, principals play a vital role in creating an organization whereby there is the continious learning of new skills and knowledge to be able to cope with changes and to meet its goals. Further, the role of schools can only be furthered if principals are committed to transfor their school into better learning organisation (Hamzah, et.al., 2011). Background of the problem In the field of education, excellence and responsiveness are fundamental. Since principals are a key element to school effectiveness, a complete understanding of the impact of their behaviour on a multitude of variables is necessary (Amoroso, 2002). In addition to leadership style, employees satisfaction and commitment towards the organisation is equally important.
According to Colvin, as future leaders, we need graduates who use their ‘intellectual prowess and analytical skill’ to search answers about the problems considering the related community. Adding to that, he says, “The knowledge, attitudes, and skills necessary for effective leadership seem closely aligned with the desired learning outcomes of a liberal arts education, regardless of major” (35). Talking about leadership, Perkins presents a statement of Rebecca Hughes, Director of Education at the British Council in which she said that people with a broad cultural knowledge and academic training which inspire to look at human dimensions happen to lead and succeed as one of the vital elements of leadership is to ‘understanding people and cultures’. In the article “Great News! Your So-Called "Worthless" Liberal Arts Degree Actually Makes You a Better Leader”, Stacey Lastoe mentions about a notable found by the Development Dimensions International which is “humanities graduates did better than MBAs in a number of areas essential to performing as a leader”.
In this paper an article “pedagogic voice: student voice in teaching and engagement pedagogies” has been critiqued. It has been observed that as of late, all through the world, a neoliberal reframing of instructive arrangements has offered ascend to an expanding concentrate on estimation and correlation based results for schooling. It is contended by Baroutsis et al (2015) that pedagogic and student voices are imperative in teaching, as they have found a higher contribution with students when the idea is utilised. On the other hand, this worldview of schooling has assisted to contract the visualisation and determinations of training, whilst likewise "taming" as well as confining conceivably imaginative pedagogies through responsibility structures.
What can be done? Different ideas and answers has been suggested in responds to the above question. Penn State 's Frankenberg is one of several education experts who believes a broader approach is needed to bring about lasting change. She says, “If we really want to [desegregate] our schools, we need to make desegregation a more essential issue and not peripheral, and we also need to think about desegregating other parts of our society” (Karaim). For this purpose, it is essential to know that young children, their elementary school process is a primary foundation for them because they are impressionable at that stage in their lives, so it is best if the issue of segregation are made known to them at this stage, so they do not have the prejudices and they know how to avoid them in any
The Language Culture and Society programme provides us with strong theoretical and interdisciplinary foundation for the study of a range of educational practices across the human lifespan and in a range of theoretical and methodological perspective is brought to bear on studies that explore the nature of literate practices, democracy and civic engagement and participation in social life. The programme focuses on relationships between education school and the dynamics and changing structures of language, culture, and society. It examines connection between broader, social, cultural, linguistic, historical, aesthetic and political factors in education and the local context in which these issues take place. It has long been recognized that language is an essential and important part of a given culture and that the impact of culture upon a given language is something intrinsic and indispensible. Language is a social phenomenon.
Each section focused on the main goal of providing aid to schools, while at the same time setting expectation to produce results in terms of academic performance which were deemed necessary in order to implement the idea that if children had quality education they could overcome the effect of poverty. (Federal Education Policy, 2009. pg 18). The Elementary and Secondary Acts was a primary decisive vehicle to distribute federal funds to supplement state school spending in the nation’s poorest and poverty stricken areas in an effort to innovate and improved educational services to all students (McGuinn P. n.d. pg 4) “In 1965,
This article is from an authoritative source that provides a comprehensive overview of the benefits of block scheduling. Most importantly, this source addresses common objections to the block scheduling such as concerns with retention, academic performance, and class climate. This will provide me with counterarguments that I can later refute in my paper, making my paper more convincing to the administration.

The authors continue to affirm that in closing the achievement gap, schools are required to use accountability methods to show student performance. Using data can aid in this process. When implementing great management skills, policy makers and other counseling leaders acknowledge the power of data to demonstrate academic achievement, and to promote counselor’s role in school reform. As a result of data collection and analysis, student will enhance their performance and close the achievement gap. Finally, the authors point out that these accountability strategies are necessary in a comprehensive school counseling program to deliver services to students and initiate program evaluation and enhancement.
