Homeschooling is an educational option that allows parents to teach their children at home instead of sending them to public schools. It is held that "homeschooled children now number 1.2 million in the United States and the number is steadily growing" (Farris, 1997, p. 4). Ray (cited in Mirochinck & McIntyre, 1991). Some Parents believe that sending their children to public schools in which qualified teachers are responsible for educating them is beneficial .However, other parents believe that it is better for their children to be educated at home by people who know their needs. In this paper, I intend to argue with educating children at home.
Being a person who is in the low income of things right now, I do receive public assistance in Child Care and I also receive SNAP. Both programs are beneficiary for my needs as I try to better myself by getting an education so that I can have a career that will provide me with the financials I need so that I will no longer need these assistances and I can give someone else the opportunity who does need them to receive them.
Instead of giving generalized assignments to students with different needs, a system of specific assignments for students that have the same needs. That may take more work and resources, but if the parents were more involved with the education process, then they could help the teachers make sure they have the necessary information and tools to help each student to best they can. Another solution would be to cut the overall amount of homework is given to students. If a legal limit was placed on the amount of homework was given, it would reduce the amount of health risk in stressed students, and take a particularly large load off the shoulders of parents with multiple kids, and varying ages. A third a final solution would be to get rid of homework countrywide.
However this is not true. In fact, when using divergent questions the teacher encourages students to explore and participate in discussions while leading it by clarifying and guiding student’s critical thinking. Moreover, those types of questions require students to reason and give their opinions and so express their feelings and values. The teachers mainly use this type of questions when they want to discuss, evaluate and analyze. Basically, the teacher should classify the type of questions used depending on the subject and on the year group.
Requiring school attendance is necessary during a child’s younger years of growth and development, however, once they reach an age, the child should be able to decide for themselves whether they would like to continue or not. This aspect of compulsory school attendance is beneficial because it allows for people who want to work in specialized fields which do not require much schooling to stop attending. Also, it enables students who do not want to put in the time and effort, to stop and drop out of school. For example, today the compulsory school attendance laws in Massachusetts requires all children between the ages of six and sixteen to attend school (burlington.org). After the children are no longer within those ages they are able to stop attaining
My intent is to not persuade them to see the situation my way, however, I would want them to understand the principle behind self-feeding. Self- feeding is more than building independence in the child, which still is very important, however self-feeding also helps the child with their hand-eye coordination and fine motor development. As I gather my information, I would consult with my director and other professionals to get their feedback about this type of situation. Once I collected my research I would then arrange to share in some way with the family through a newsletter or hand-outs, email, even a parent board that other parents could see the information as well. My number one priority with this type of interaction with the family is to not embarrass them or treat them like they are not being practical but to show them support.
Learning disability is an order that includes numerous regions of performing in which a person experiences some learning difficulties in an ordinary way, due to some ambiguous issues. Assuming that disabled students have difficulties learning in a typical manner does not eliminate the idea of learning in an unlike manner, therefore; avoiding delusions of having a disability to learn and achieve something. According to Ruth Kudwa, the adversaries of the idea of inclusion looks at it as a strategy driven by “unrealistic expectations where schools try to force all students into the mold of regular education.” (“Special Education Inclusion”, 2001). According to Jenkinson, “Although the curriculum for inclusion has been modified to suit the educational
Children with reactive attachment disorder will seek control however they can, even in small, insignificant ways. They may interrupt, walk ahead of the teacher in the hallway, speak unclearly, or not turn in work, among other things, to try to take the control away from the teacher. When they are in control, they feel safe. In a school setting, children are expected to obey rules; the teacher and other school personnel are in charge. These children struggling with reactive attachment disorder have to learn to give up control; certain adults can be trusted.
ISLLC Standard 2.A. states principals should create a culture of collaboration and trust. If the Speech and Language Pathologist (SLP) felt pressured to take on additional duties, then she is not going to develop a trusting relationship with the administration. ISLLC Standard 2.C. states principals should ensure a personalized and motivating learning environment for students. Teachers stretched too thin on duties outside the classroom will not perform classroom duties to the best of their
Life has its twists and turns, but my overall life goal is simple, help others. I want to make an impact on others life, even if it is a small change. For instance, being able to hold a pencil is the difference between a student being able to graduate from Kindergarten and not be able to continue on to first grade. Being a Pediatric occupational therapist will help me make an impact on children at a very young age. Even small changes can have a large impacts, which is why I want to be that change for others.
In the journal article, Tim Gill wrote about the society and also about the safety of children playing outside affecting child’s growth. All the safety was design to prevent injuries and protect children but actually children are getting more fragile because of the overprotective adults. He even showed concrete evidence to support his statement. Playground becomes too safe that more broken limbs among children occur these days and they have more scars. In addition to restricted freedom, children change in attitude to take risk in society which means they are afraid to take any risk in what they are doing in real world.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, commonly known as ADHD, is the center for a lot of controversy within the medical field. The common argument pertains to whether ADHD is over diagnosed or underdiagnosed. Evidence can be applied to support both sides, but when it pertains to children, studies tended to attest that ADHD is typically over diagnosed. The reasoning for this can be generalized around one idea: misdiagnosis. Symptoms that appear to be ADHD are: inattention, which can be noticed within a child’s school work; hyperactivity, noticing that a child has a hard time sitting still; and impulsivity, referring to frequent interruptions and lack of patience.
