It is fundamental in our personal and professional lives. In academia, writing has become central as a measure for academic success. Students attempt to gain more control over improvement of English writing skill (Hamid, 2012). As writing process approach has transformed the method of teaching writing starting from students' final products to the process of writing, directive feedback has since become an important feature in writing instruction. This is due to how good feedback helps students understand their subject area and gives them clear guidance on how to improve their learning (Orsmond et al.,
An article written by Emily Hanford, suggests that the success of getting students to maximizing their potential at college is understanding how each student learns. Teaching methods should be changed and it should be understood that there are constantly a diverse set of learners that make college slightly better. Hanford also states that education is crucial in our rapidly evolving world and that the learning methods that are used aid in the student becoming a better person post-graduation as well, which I wholeheartedly believe in and should be broadened across campuses. In an article written by Julie Lain to YOUniversityTV, she states how she is thankful for the opportunities that a prestigious college education has given her. Not only did it build her societal skills, but she also improved her writing skills tremendously as well.
Educators must stress the importance of these soft skills, and integrate them into the curriculum being taught. The earlier the students begin to develop these skills, the easier it will be for managers to integrate and facilitate healthy workplace relationships upon hiring them into the organization. From the other perspective, managers must continue to understand new digital communication platforms in order to remain relevant and effectively communicate to these new generations of potential employees. In doing so, they can continue to make educated decisions on which communication platform to use in different
The constant access allowed me to grow and develop cognitively thanks to my exposure to context, culture and my peers. (Dimmitt, 2018) The exposure to school and my incomplete microsystem could only get me so far, however. In order to get to college, I needed to consider my exosystem and how I could be independent without relying on my
The author’s objective was to implement Elementary and Secondary Education (ESEA) Flexibility plans. In line with this, educators play a challenging task in molding not just the mental capacity of their students but also their eagerness for learning which will further assist them to enhance their preparedness for college and career. It can be premised that teaching college and career preparedness to high school student should not be solely entrusted to teachers but most especially to school counselors since the latter may have practiced up-to-date strategies and approaches to career counseling through test results interpretation. Relatively, the research study of Mattern, Radunzel and Westrick (2015) relates to the importance of developing academic competency benchmarks to facilitate academic and career decision making.
and I hope I make the right decision when my time comes. I want for all students to get the best education they can and be proud of who they are. I do not want my students to worry about other things besides school and helping them better themselves. I really hope I can express this emotion in my paper to earn a good grade and finish the semester strong. I just want to make a good
The Association of American Colleges and Universities simply defines liberal education as “an approach to learning that empowers individuals and prepares them to deal with complexity, diversity, and change.” Liberal education in American schools should be implemented mostly in grade school. As kids grow up and become closer to making career choices, professional education should be intertwined with liberal education to give our future leaders the best education possible and provide them with the most knowledge. Kids should be well equipped to deal with the diversity and complexity of life. Balance is the best way to ensure this.
Evolving methodologies for curriculum and instruction are essential to improving how we educate. McMillian positions that essential to this is understanding the value of scientific inquiry. He explains, “the principles of scientific inquiry provide the foundation for conducting studies…analyzing educational problems, making decisions, and designing, conducting, reporting, and evaluating” (McMillian, 2016, p. 7) to provide significant benefits for engaging students and affecting achievement. Among the changing methodologies is the consensus that the use of STEM-education concepts are necessary to prepare students for 21st century skill-building. Subsequently, this has led to an instructional methodology that highlights math-centered curriculum, and the instruction of science and technology as independent of core content.
“Research shows that students in co-educational schools are often better prepared to succeed in post-secondary education and to enter the workforce, (Leighton).” It gives a positive self-image and helps develop the confidence of our future leaders, which students need. Students are preparing for the future and surprisingly, having both genders in the same teaching environment will actually help the students in the future. It makes them more confident when talking to the opposite sex, which students will need as they pursue their career as an adult. Students in single-sex classrooms will one day live and work side-by-side with members of the opposite sex.
To perform as a good citizen in a real society, you must be well educated with not only the core subjects but also the wisdom of life. Thus, transferring the knowledge you learned in school into real life is significantly important. If you do not have the ability to transfer your knowledge, education becomes pointless. Teachers should be able to work as facilitators to guide their students to come up with the solutions independently to their problems. (What are the philosophical foundations of American education pg.302)
With that being said, Common core developers have outlined the approach to assessing. To avoid layering on top of other assessments already being used, teachers and administrators will need to examine their assessment approaches so that testing continues to add to, rather than take away from teaching young children. To direct teachers in this approach, they would need to become familiar with the guidelines provided in the Common Core Standards. Next, in reference to assessment results being used for high-stakes such as grade retention, Common Core
In terms of curriculum planning and initiatives to select core texts for instruction, at least one conversation should be held in regards to the real world application and relevance of a text. The idea that a text is relevant to the current society as well as student lives is crucial to a successful school environment. Students must be able to make direct connections between what they are reading and the world around them. Teachers are the necessary connectors of the concepts.
Simply put, rhetoric improves the two basic structures of society, work and home, how could such a skill not be useful or valuable. A world that is able to articulate themselves better will hopefully encourage mutual understanding and
The BGS class Adults in Transition is designed to give students returning to school the tools they need to succeed, not only for school but also in work and life in general. The S.M.A.R.T. goals I developed and the research paper I wrote on the challenges and barriers of the adult student will be my guide throughout my future endeavors. These assignments have taught me how to set quality goals, balance and prioritize various aspects of my life, and not let fear discourage me. Creating clear and concise S.M.A.R.T. goals will provide me with the ability to turn my wants and desires into reality. Whether I am setting a goal to finish school or obtain my dream job, the S.M.A.R.T. goal method will break down the task into smaller, more manageable
The article, Practice and Critique, informs educational readers (and students becoming future educators) about the importance of the Common Core Standards. This article especially defines the techniques’ importance throughout specific subjects, such as Language Development. Over the last few years, the common core standards have been adapted to fit the “average” classroom setting, with its goal of preparing each student with the necessary curriculum needed in order for them to succeed in college and/or within the workplace. Though this strategy has often been criticized by many throughout the public, the article hopes to demonstrate that the Common Core Standards are exactly what is needed in order for each child to to be able to obtain and
