According to Education Week Teacher “Reaching performance goals or learning a new language requires students to be organized, to set goals, and to evaluate if they’re meeting those goals.”(Rambo 2011) Middle schools should allow electives because it helps you by allowing students to learn new skills and experiences, what they may want to do in their future, and gets them prepared for their adulthood. Firstly, electives in middle schools could allow students to learn new skills and experiences. It would help them learn things they would need to know for their future earlier and when they are younger. “ Electives allow students to break away from standard subject matter offered at schools and delve into a world of new, unexplored subjects.” (Youth Perspective: Schools should con...) With new subjects students would be able to set goals for themselves on specific things they may want to do in some
“Immigrants learned how to use American institutions such as schools, factories, and the political system.” (online book, page 588) Immigrants would have to still face some discrimination and persecution in learning to live in a new nation but they would adjust. Immigrants could learn to live in a new nation with help from others and
I found that it is important that I assess ELL students when they come into to my classroom because I need to know what that ELL student already knows, so that I can effectively understand how to move on instructing and assessing the ELL student (Lenski. 2006, P. 25). This article has also taught me that it is important to include parents in their child’s education. Parents can help in completing predictability logs, which can be very useful for me to use when figuring out how much the child already knows. The predictability log will help me to understand the ELL’s prior literacy experiences (Lenski.
I will provide books with different cultural and languages, so children will have a sense of inclusion in their classroom. SLO IV: I invite children in my classroom to share and read their home language book. SLO V: I have learned from this class is good communication will help me to have better relationship with people that are around me. I have never known that the children’s earliest language experiences will be their first movements, their babbling, cooing, and speaking words will be precursors of their later language and literacy learning. Therefore, this course has impacted my thoughts about
I walked over to tables that had to do with my major and got the information I needed on what skills I need to succeed in the specific major, what type of jobs students have with the major, and much more. Majoring in Human Development and Learning, I must have great speaking skills and must work well with children. I love children and am very excited to see where I can go with my major. In the University College, I can have a concentration in Pre-School and Child Care Administration and this would help me with exactly what I want to do; owning a daycare center and a dance studio for
Assessment Reflection When administrating the Reading Interest Inventory (Mariotti, n.d.), the Motivations to Read Profile Survey and asking the Conversational Survey Questions (Pitcher, et al., 2007), it gave insight to how Hailey felt about herself as a learner. The questions that stood out in my mind, is how I can help Hailey to be more success in the classroom as well as become a stronger reader overtime? I would like to look more in depth in Hailey’s comprehension skills and provide her educational strategies that will help Hailey to grow in her reading comprehension and give her some tools to help herself when she is having trouble. I am interested to see how Hailey reads orally, and to check her reading accuracy and fluency. Are these areas that are impacting Hailey as a learner as well?
It is important that high school students have training and experience that allows them to be prospective employees. In a recent study, 87% of new jobs created require employees to use multiple computer programs for entry positions. By redesigning school curriculum to recognize the needs of the workplace, this will enable students to have more viable job options after graduating high school. An updated school curriculum will increase students’ chances of getting hired for entry-level positions, leading to many job opportunities. In the end, there will always be a place for classic subjects in school.
Although studying abroad may be much harder than studying in Kuwait, student will be exposed to various experiences during their studying period. Moreover, parents will also benefit from studying abroad in as much it will be less expensive. However, parents should be careful about their children when they desire to send them to study abroad. Students are enrolling in study abroad program more than ever before as a way to develop their intercultural knowledge and skills. To maximize the benefits to students, study abroad programs should be developed to facilitate the growth of intercultural knowledge and skills.
Generally speaking, the problems Rodriguez faced were very bad. If the teachers had been more considerate and thoughtful about the difficulties he was facing it would have been avoided easily and efficiently, because your cultural identity and native language are the ones that tell who you are. Bilingual education has been a debate for a long time now causing major issues in families and students. This issue should have been solved by now. Schools should support bilingual education and encourage their immigrant students to continue speaking their native language to prevent this
I look forward in helping college students map out their academic goals, this experience I believe can expose me to the many different cultural groups that I will meet during my career as a college counselor. The impact of receiving the Gilman Scholarship would allow me to further my goals of exposure to new cultures and social issues. Also allowing me to gather the knowledge I will gain for my future career in counseling. I have a deep passion for social change. I believe that one should be equipped and well cultured to be able to understand the communities that you will serve.
It can take two to four years for an ELL to create conversational capability and another three to four years to create scholarly capability (Cummings J. 2000). As a teacher I will help children learn and use aspects of language associated with the academic discourse of the various school subject to ensure that there is time and practice. There is nothing teachers can do to rush English acquisition, but we can find many avenues to provide ways to opportunities to practice English in the classroom. If they are structured to support student-to-student or group interaction, ELLs are required to use English language to explain concepts and contribute to the work.

In addition to this I expected that the school social worker was responsible of ensuring that each student with learning accommodation was receiving the attention and resource they needed for example occupational therapy. To expand my knowledge about the job function and performance responsibilities of a school social worker, I visited the School Social Work Association of America website. After visiting this website I was able to understand more about the roles of school Social Worker. Also I learned about some of the specific services that School Social Workers provide. Additional questions I researched were: Why do today 's schools need School Social Workers?
