Students with learning disabilities should be included in the “normal” classroom because it improves their academic performance, social behavior, and communication language. One reason why students with learning disabilities should be in the normal classroom is that inclusion improves their academic performance. In the article “Outcomes for Students With Learning Disabilities in Inclusive and Pullout Programs”, researchers in education programs conducted a study to compare the students’ academic behavior between inclusive and special schools. Throughout their study, the researchers took several factors into
2006, P. 31). I learned from this article that it is important to use alternate assignments to assess an ELL. I think alternate assignments will be a more effective tool for me to use in my classroom to assess ELL’s because it effectively shows what the child is learning. Alternate assignments are based off of regular classroom activities, so I think it will be simpler for the ELL student to complete. I think that I will definitely be using alternate assignments in my classroom to assess ELLs because it will show me their progress better than a test that they may not understand will (Lenski.
In addition, research shows students are doing better when they are in bilingual programs. Pac (2012) writes “Facilitating instruction in both heritage languages and English, bilingual education specifically improved language minorities’ educational access, self-esteem, and personal and professional achievements” (Pac 2012, p.195). Students feel more comfortable when they are studying in the environment with their peers who are in the same English level, and they are more willing to practice in the class. However, when emergent bilinguals have to speak with unfamiliar language in the class, students will feel shame to ask questions because they will think other students will laugh at them since they are the only one who does not understand questions, which make them have lower self-esteem. In New York City, there is a dramatic loss of bilingual program because it against the English-only movement.
It is important that students receive instruction in both language English and Spanish to improve their academic knowledge at school. This program is successful for children because it is important learn two or more language in their life. Dual-language is the wonderful opportunity for children could communicate with other children and will have the opportunity to learn different cultures. Dual Language is a program to benefit the student to have very good communication with others students at school or when they visit their relatives in their parents country. In my opinion, it is a wonderful program because the children have the opportunity to learn both languages at the same time at the early age.
Do you have specific strategies and techniques that you prefer to use to promote healthy language development? We try to keep things like instruction and conversation with the kids simple and clear, this way they are able to follow those directions and understand what teachers need from them. We use a lot of positive reinforcement in the classroom also, through praise and enthusiasm over a job well done, the kids tend to respond with greater confidence in themselves. There are so many different ways to promote language skills for children in preschool. I do think positive reinforcement is a great tool for any age, I have definitely found that this works far better than focusing on what a child does wrong.
According to an article published by UCLA, boys and girls develop at different rates. So, it would be more effective for students in single-gender schools, and it is more beneficial for their academic readiness. Which is according to a study published by the Connecticut Education Association. The differences in boys and girls brains reflect upon their behavior, learning, and development. So if they are put in a school with their own gender, they will learn to accept their differences, and not hide them.
It will help students learn about the required materials in depth and discuss it among their peers leading to better academic performance. Teacher too would benefit because they would have more time to cover topics instead of just the quick facts. Academically students would perform better inside the classroom and help our school look better. Block scheduling would be a great thing to consider switching to if the school wants to see their students do better inside and outside the
Success Factor # 1: A clear objective and strategy Parents who know exactly which languages they want their children to speak, have a higher chance at raising bilingual children than those who just know they want bilingual children with changing ideas about which languages to choose. It is therefore important to become clear about your motives, i.e. what about each language for your child is important to you (e.g. English so my child can speak to his grandparents, Spanish so he can talk to his school friends and German because that 's my husband 's native language). It is equally critical to choose a language strategy and then stick to it throughout your children 's language journey.
Arguments in favor of bilingual education. Children who have the opportunity to be taught a second language language at school show that they have an important number of cognitive advantages compared to the monolingual children (Denham & Lobeck, 2013, p.49). It also provides them a background knowledge through the first language, and a more important development of literacy in their native language. Indeed, all languages have a connection, as the theory of universal grammar demonstrate, thus children will learn a second language the same way as they learn their native language, consequently the technical aspect of learning a language will be easier for those who already know a second language. Moreover, learning a second language at school also means learning a new culture, new
According to the article "Bilingualism in the early years: What the Science Says " by Krista Byers Heimlein and Casey Lew Williams talks about a book called the Bilingual Edge (King & Mackey, 2009), and articles such as The Power of the Bilingual Brain (TIME Magazine; Kluger, 2013) in which they discuss the benefit of being bilingual.One of the most beneficial benefit of children knowing more than one language is that they will be able to travel to many different places, find jobs, communicate with others.Bilngial people also show greater advantages when it comes to social understanding. If you are a teacher and you know more than one language it will be better for you to understand others, their thoughts, intentions and perspectives.Whne it comes to switching between different activities bilingual individual perform better than monolingual due to their previously learned responses. Also this article shows that toddlers and infants as well show better cognitive benefits of being bilingual.Some evidence shows that bilingual infant has a higher advantage in some part of their memory by making generalization from one event to a later event ( Brito and Barr 2012). Early development of more than one language has other benefits that are outside of the linguistic spectrum, but an early development of the theory of mind (Kovacs
