In my own opinion, people should be taught to write in cursive, therefore it should be kept in schools. Cursive may not be very essential in our modern lives, yet it is still an important skill to learn. As stated in paragraph three, studies shows that writing in cursive stimulates both sides of the brain as well as helping in the development of fine motor-skills, which does help us in our average lives whether you notice it or not. Being able to write in cursive allows a person to anticipate further and think quickly, which in turn allows for quicker reaction time, and more brain activity. Of course, as stated in paragraph two of the second article, we all do things digitally.
A consistent classroom environment is a critical piece for allowing all students to develop and grow personally and academically. If a classroom is quiet and controlled one day, and loud and chaotic the next day, it creates an environment that will be ineffective. For students coming from homes full of turmoil the inconsistent classroom environment will force them to remain on the edge of their seat fearful of what may come next. Consistency in the classroom also is important in how a teacher interacts with a student in the behavioral choices. Inconsistent consequences for consistent behavior will not provide an environment where a student can learn and improve the decision making process.
What is more important, learning to write in cursive, or learning how to type? Some believe that the cursive writing unit should be removed from school curriculum and replaced with typing classes. Even though typing is used more often, schools should still teach and spend time on cursive writing. Teaching cursive writing in schools is necessary and beneficial to students. Cursive Writing is academically beneficial.
Not only by exposing them to the language they will speak, read and write the English language correctly, students must learn and understand the meaning of words. Vocabulary words help any English language learner communicate effectively with any other person. According to Wilkins (1972), “Vocabulary is central to English language teaching because, without sufficient vocabulary, students cannot understand others or express their own ideas.” On the other hand, many teachers recognize the importance of teaching vocabulary and they must emphasize it daily in their lessons. Among many skills, vocabulary in context is one of the most commonly used. To aid vocabulary in context, the use of a Card-file among other strategies may enrich the student’s experience and understanding of what they speak, read, and
The importance of critical thinking couldn’t be more highly prioritized in academia, even when its application faces much constraint in English language development. What could be so important about a non-linguistic skill in classrooms that are generally devoted to improving linguistic abilities? Critical thinking might play an extra-linguistic role in the context of English language learning, and writing could be one of several modalities used to realize this role in secondary classrooms. It is stated that in the 1970’s, many sociologists and cognitive scientists were interested in the acts of composing as a way to observe how students learn (Sokolik, 2003). Subsequent teaching developments in writing that emphasized problem solving build upon the foundation of these findings.
Accessibility is a concept that essentially applies to the customization of products, services, appliances and environments in a way that enables them to be used by people who have various types of disabilities. Effectively speaking, these products and services are designed in such a manner that enables people with special needs to gain both ‘direct’ as well as ‘indirect’ access to them. At the same time, the benefits of accessibility also extend to a wider category of individuals such as senior citizens and medical patients. Assistive technology is a term that is closely associated with the concept of accessibility. For instance, the application of assistive technology is what makes electronic equipment such as computer screen readers accessible to all categories of end users, including those with disabilities or special needs.
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of explicit sight word instruction on the reading speed of elementary EFL students. Participants’ ability to read affects their daily lives in significant ways. Thus, effective pedagogical methods of reading instruction are imperative. Memorizing lists of words by sight is especially difficult for participants who need multiple exposures to successful. Therefore, it is necessary to see different ways to teach participants who visit for multiple repetitions in an approach that will not lead to ennui or frustration.
These include emotional, mental, and behavioural difficulties. It is observed that the information is not presented to the teacher making it important to view the issues with open mind. Although the teacher cannot immediately find solutions to the problem but the teacher must be capable enough to become aware of the situation and must have knowledge of the techniques that can be used for facilitating students. The students that are passive are characterised through failure or fearing relationships due to which it becomes important for them to avoid criticism, developing the environment of the class that is in close knit and rewarding success. These are the common needs of students that must be considered in effective class management because it helps in learning more easily and conveniently.
According to John Bishop, “School and homework show students the important life lessons, such as how to read and communicate with others, that they will use as an adult.” Students can learn how important planning, staying organized and taking action is just from doing homework. Homework gives the students an opportunity to learn how to work independently. Although I understand that assigning homework is not beneficial at times, I still believe that assigning homework can teach students many skills and even help teachers. Assigning homework to students is constructive, therefore teachers should assign homework because it allows students to gain responsibility, time-management, perseverance, self-esteem, homework also gives students a chance to review the class material, and it also helps teachers determine how well the lessons and materials are being understood by their students. Above all, homework allows the students to gain responsibility, time-management, perseverance, and self-esteem.
The teacher elicits answers that are related to learners' experiences and personal situations. Real situation inside the classroom helps the learners to communicate outside the classroom walls. The teacher's job is to involve his learners in these situations. One of the demerits of real situations is that they are related only to the classroom and the topics are limited, so teachers focus on realistic situations. a- 2) Visual Aids AndRealia: To keep the learners motivated and engaged inside the classroom isn't an easy task.
