This also provides a more flexible way of communication between the tutee and the tutor as the tutorial session progress. Quote 4. Because markers reinforce another’s continued task, tutors can use them to provide opportunities for tutees to explain, discover, question and discuss. If the tutee is actively engaged in talking about the content, then she is actively engaged in learning. (MacDonald 66) Response 4: I learn from this that active listening is a powerful tool that helps tutees provide explanation of the subject.

Precious Knowledge presents the controversial issue of the integration of ethnic studies courses in schooling.Ethnic studies is the study of cultural, racial, ethnic, and gender differences in America. In this essay, I will argue Ethnic studies courses should belong in P-12 schooling, because the classes endorse ideals of America. In addition, people rely on the courses to learn critical thinking of the empowerment of identity. Although advocates for the abolishment of ethnic studies courses argue that the courses create a sense of contempt towards America through racism and are not remarkably significant, they do not fully comprehend the success from ethnic studies and that by taking away the classes, they only promote their fear of students disliking America. Ultimately, ethnic studies promote American ideals, create identity, and only create contempt when being constrained from these courses.
334)”, this is explaining that Americans are not being properly educated. They have to teach themselves what is right and wrong when it comes to the English language. They are unable to look up to older authorities to help them therefor they cannot broaden their horizons when it comes to the English language and culture. In “Lost In America” McGray says, “ The president’s language may promise $24 million to promote foreign-language instructions in K-12 schools, but that seems pretty paltry compared to the $206 million he requested to fund abstinence-only sex education”(McGray Pg. 356), this proves that our priorities are focused elsewhere and not on our language and culture.
In addition, the manipulation of the English language in writing and speaking, with as the use of figurative language and compositional techniques, makes the writing more persuasive and impactful. Speaking properly and effectively will change the way you talk and will change the way people will listen to you. By displaying knowledge and skill towards the widely accepted language, the audience gain trust towards the writer or speaker, fostering an authoritative relationship between the two. It was through my past experience that I came to a realization that impactful speech and writing, possible through the use and manipulation of proper English, serve as agents for gaining my audience’s attention. Being elected as the former President of my high school, it was my obligation to lead nearly a thousand students.
Contemporary American society no longer seeks answers to these questions as moral relativism destroyed the existence of an answer. This is the beginning of Bloom’s analysis and the conclusions drawn from it are important stern indictments of American society. While Bloom does create a memorable and condemning critique of American society, some of the conclusions are not strongly connected to moral relativism. Bloom begins by stating that almost all university students he has encountered are moral relativists (Bloom 25). These students are not willing to rank cultural norms, believe that different cultures are equal and above judgment.
For example, for university study in one of the English speaking countries, the students should have a good command of language skills (reading, writing, listening, and speaking) in order to be able to understand the lectures in the classroom, take notes, attend classroom discussion, and read and comprehend the texts. But if the tests are in multiple-choice format, then the examinees' practice will focus on practicing multiple-choice items rather than skills which they need in that specific situation. Thus, tests effect is harmful on teaching. Davis (1968) believed "a good test is an obedient servant since it follows and apes the teaching" (p. 2). But Hughes (2002) criticized this view since they are occasions when teaching is poor or inappropriate and tests create a beneficial on teaching.
It is important to have an understanding of what language is, what learning is as well as what teaching is. Knowledge of how a student learned their native language can provide guidance on how the students’ will acquire their second language. Krashen and Terrell state that there is a “difference between learning and acquisition of language”. Learning is knowing about the language and is a formal knowledge process. The learner is conscious that the language is being taught.
I believe that understanding these principles would allow me to support my learners effectively in their attempts to speak English. Moreover, searching about my chosen principles will help me implement some of them effectively in my teaching to receive great
This program in theory would very beneficial to a lot of English language learners but the way the course is set up the main focus is not teaching the students content rather than teaching them english. Due to this students are falling behind with learning and don’t have the same opportunities to do as well in school as non ELL students. The bilingual education system doesn 't offer English language learners the same opportunities english speaking students get, the standards for English language learners do not promote their improvement of content retention therefore causing lower test scores, a separation between peers and cause an inequitable system.
