If we don't do anything to identify students who are struggling and have difficulties, then it will play a part in their education for the rest of their academic careers and potentially their lives outside of academics such as in their careers and/or personal life. Currently, there are a few ways to see if children and students are struggling with mathematics and numeracy. These methods include, screenings, tests, activities that test mathematical knowledge or a combination of them. The most easiest method to administrate, but not always the most reliable method is testing (Jordan et al. 182).
The first thing that must be discussed in order to answer the question appropriately is: What is truth? This is a really difficult question to answer. There is a big difference between something that is believed to be true and something that is true, basically because if something is believed to be true is not completely certain or accurate, could be one way or another. On the other hand something that is true is certain and definitive and no questions are raised, but there are many types of truth as well. According to Daniel Patrick Moynihan “Everybody is entitled to their own opinion, but they're not entitled to their own facts” which means that everyone can believe in what they want, but their facts must be able to be seen and understood
“[T]heory is the framework for observations and facts. Theories may change, or the way that they are interpreted may change, but the facts themselves don't change.” Once the facts and truths of the idea have been set, they cannot change. Eventually with enough facts (truths) this hypothesis can be claimed as a fact itself. It is deemed truth. Of course people have different values, morals, opinions, views, etc.
Moreover, those points are just not persuasive enough for people to really believe in themselves. Even though we can act with virtue while knowing about it, we can still practice it to make the world a better place. We can act virtuously to lead by example for society so that others will try to be more virtuous also. What I mean by this is that we can try to make people better people that will make them happy. People being naturally conceded also is not persuasive because everyone has different personalities, meaning that nobody is truly the same.
Kamm’s article is also abundant with logical fallacies. The title “Our Language” is itself a sweeping generalization, as not everyone reading this article can relate in terms of the language described, that being English, and so it is not necessarily “our” language. In his article, Kamm tries to prove his point that people do not need specific rules to be invoked in order to speak properly, and instead can just rely on their own instincts. In doing so, Kamm, once again, uses sweeping generalization by saying “we all have the instinct,” when that is not essentially true. Kamm uses phrases like “we should be entirely relaxed” or “why worry,” while discussing different choices in grammar, in order to downplay
The content is just one of the elements that determine the shape or form and are to be evaluated from this perspective.Theway of using language in the formalist point of view is different from using language by other approaches.The artistthat has a common language is trying not to be obsessed with conceptual limitations. The views of formalists are: 1) Departure or deviation from the norm: Formalists believed that standard literary languagedeviates from literary arts. Less text can be found in each paragraph or even a sentencethat somehow escape from the criteria. 2.Exotic and Defamiliarization: An important achievement in the theory of Defamiliarization is pure literature. Art puts obstacles in the way of reader to oblige him to think about the text and art.
Omission is often the most important aspect of textualization, because if the writer does not mention something, it often does not even enter the reader's mind and thus is not subjected to his or her scrutiny. It is difficult to raise questions about something that is not even "there." Writers can also influence readers through presupposition. Presupposition is the use of language in a way that appears to take certain ideas for granted, as if there were no alternative. A common example of this at the text level would be an advertisement that describes a product in such glowing terms that the product appears to have no rival, or in literature in case of writings which express the author’s
Literature is a mirror of society. It has thousands of threads which can weave the beautiful piece of art. Each thread has its own importance in the creative work. In the same way there are different types of narrative techniques for the narration of literature. Realism, in literature, is an approach that attempts to describe life without idealization or romantic subjectivity.
Their writings state that there is a clear connection between language and thought. For Sapir, the individual is not entirely aware of this connection and is subject to it without any choice whereas for Whorf, this connection between and language was also not a choice for the individuals but a compulsion. Both, Sapir and Whorf, believed that it is our culture that dictates our language, which in turn influences our thoughts and perceptions about the world and the things we experience in it. In simple words, linguistic relativity, sometimes called Whorfianism, states that the
Once students start to study literature, they go to a new world, a world of dream and magic which is completely different from their own world. It reflects truth and beauty which are not always visible for ordinary people. They are shown to us by a sensitive soul, the writer. In the broadest sense, perhaps, literature means simply the written records of the race, including all its history and sciences, as well as its poems and novels, in the narrow sense literature is the artistic record of life and most of our writing is excluded from it. One of the most important qualities of literature is its universality.
