Gudmund Hernes, Director of IIEP states that in higher education and universities subjects are "taught much the same...mathematics, biology, languages, history, economics. The theories presented and criticized, the notions expounded and challenged, the ideas used to make sense of the world - whether they are embodied in words like 'atoms' or galaxies' or algorithms' or 'syntax - are also similar."….

School Systems Use Data to Implement Strategies Research Paper

… ¶ … School Systems use Data to Implement Strategies and Drive Instruction for Elementary Students?

In any setting, there is a best way to do something, and elementary school systems are no exception. In the Digital Age, though, trying to make sense of the enormous amounts of information available is often like trying to take a sip from a fire hose and many educators might be at a loss concerning how to use the available data to its best effect. Therefore, identifying ways that other educational school systems have used data to help them implement strategies and drive instruction represents a timely and valuable enterprise.

In an era of dwindling state budgets for education and increasing calls for accountability on the part of teachers and…. [read more]

Reading Strategies Impact on ELL ESL Students Capstone Project

… ¶ … Reading Strategies' Impact on ELL Students

Today, more than 2 million students from non-English-speaking backgrounds attend public school in the United States and their numbers are expected to triple by 2020. The research to date confirms that these students require support in their native languages as well as in English to achieve academic proficiency, but far too few English language learners (ELLs) are receiving the level of educational support that is required. In this environment, identifying improved strategies for facilitating English language acquisition represents a timely and valuable enterprise. There are a number of challenges that are involved, but the mandates are clear. The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act, signed into law January 2002, placed renewed emphasis, urgency, and expectations on all…. [read more]


Compare and Contrast the Approaches to Conflict Management and Conflict Resolution Thesis

… ¶ … Conflict Management and Conflict Resolution

Conflict management and resolution through Site-based Management

School-based management (SBM), or decentralized management, is fast growing in popularity in many of the U.S. school districts as this is seen as an efficient way to resolve and manage conflicts. The reason why people believe that this system can resolve conflicts is because it is the principals and staff of the schools that makes all the decision regarding the curriculum, asset and finance distribution and the methods of teaching. This means that they make an informed decision based on the patterns they are observing amongst the students, teachers, community and the staff. So even though the conventional methods allow the district education boards to set academic objectives, in modern times,…. [read more]

… Teacher Disposition: SIMILARITIES AND DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS

The objective of this work is to research and examine the similarities and differences in teaching disposition between Elementary and Secondary school teachers and to answer the question of whether it requires a different type of personality to teach a certain age level, and if so, then what disposition suits which age group and why?

It is understood among all educators and teachers that certain requirements exist in relation to the disposition of the teacher insofar…. [read more]


Special Education - Inclusion the Transition Term Paper

… Special Education - Inclusion

The transition from a middle school setting to a high school setting can be daunting for the best of students, but this transition may be particularly problematic for many special needs students that are transitioning from a program of instruction specifically designed for them to a more inclusive regular classroom setting. Unfortunately, there is a growing recognition among educators and policymakers alike that students with special needs are not receiving the level of educational services they need to succeed academically and professionally. Complicating the administration of special needs programs at the outset is a constellation of federal mandates that guide how individualized education programs must be provided for public school students with disabilities today. Advocates of full inclusion programs maintain that…. [read more]

Differentiated Instruction in the Classroom Each Parent Term Paper

… Differentiated Instruction in the Classroom

Each parent understands that the child for whom he or she is responsible is as unique and different as each snowflake that falls from the sky during a winter storm. Like the parent, the teacher recognizes that singular quality of the child and inherently understands both the magnificence and complexity of the miracle represented in the mind of the child. Teaching methodology on the other hand, frequently sees only a composition of materials and busies itself with categorizing and standardizing oblivious to the majesty and beauty of each individual. And 'Although no one in the education field would openly state that all children are the same, this assumption is embedded in the way schools are structured, leaving individual teachers the….

How Have Ethical Responsibilities Changed in the Classroom Term Paper

… Ethical Changes in the Classroom Over the Past 50 Years

The ethical responsibilities of teachers have undergone dramatic changes over the past fifty years, reflecting the changes in our culture today. As contemporary society becomes increasingly diverse and complex, so does the process of preparing young people for life as independent thinkers, productive citizens, and future leaders. The changing nature of students, the collegiate experience, learning, teaching, and outcome assessment all have substantive implications for altering educational practice. Trends such as appearance, actions and language have set the pace that there are no absolutes, no common values, and no core set of moral ideas. Ethical relativism has become the norm due to our current society's vast historical events that have led to distinct changes in…. [read more]


Pedagogic Model: Teaching Technology in Special Education Dissertation

… " (Dougiamas, 1998) Such trivial constructivism, though, is the bedrock from which Glaserfelds more radical constructivism springs. He continues to state that because knowledge is constructed by the learner, and because no two learners are the same, knowledge itself is not absolute. There is a degree to which knowledge is an illusion, and every individual constructs their own conception of reality which (while susceptible to the demands of "real" or normal reality) does not necessarily align with the normal paradigm. Constructivism does embrace this relativistic and existential approach to reality, but it also holds as a primary value the idea of constraint which enables the thinkers to participate in social interaction and mainstream reality. (Glasersfeld)



One interesting area of constructionist theory is…. [read more]


Academic Profile of Home Schooling Case Study

… ..the general public is beginning to have a positive...attitude about...home education." A June 1994 NBC news/Wall Street Journal poll indicated that among "the general public only 28% favor home schooling over traditional schools" (Clark, 1994), and, in a Family Research Council poll taken in September 1993, the public was evenly split at 44% each as to whether home schooled students learn as well as publicly schooled students (Clark, 1994). More current data is presented later in the practicum. A possible indicator of the prevalence of the home education movement is that the College Board has assigned codes for use by home educators when taking the SAT/PSAT (Lambert, 1996).

Singapore



Singapore is a country in which the learning of the English language has become vitally important.

Positive Outcome in the Educational Term Paper

… Third, there is a growing awareness that rapid technological change and our nation's economic competativeness will compel workers to adapt existing skills and learn new ones to optimize performance.

As noted, interest in thinking and problem solving has been renewed, but traditional approaches to teaching these skills have met with very mixed results (Nickerson, Perkins, & Smith, 1986). It now appears that the efficacy of these efforts was determined by at least three interrelated factors: First, instructional designers often failed to appreciate the importance of domain-specific knowledge in effective thinking and problem solving (Chi, Glaser, & Farr, 1988). Programs that emphasize the use of generic reasoning and problem-solving heuristics may be theoretically general across situations, but they usually lack power in any specific situation (Anderson,….
