  • Adult Illiteracy - 3,219 words
    ... atic, enemies of early, intensive teaching of phonics. Frank Smith and Kenneth Goodman are two of today's most influential proponents of the look and say or as they would term it, whole language philosophy of teaching reading. San Diego State University Professor Patrick Groff recently reviewed 43 reading texts, all published in the1980's and used by teachers' colleges in training reading teachers, to see if they included the findings of researchers that the code-emphasis or phonics approach to teaching reading should be used. He found that none of these books advocate phonics. In fact, only nine of these books inform teachers that there is current debate about if or when phonics should ...

    ... e Research in English Acquisition and Development (READ) in Washington D.C, the longer the learning of a second language is delayed, the more difficult it becomes (qtd. in Smith, The Battle 32). In addition to her comment in Electronic Learning, Porter told Insight her beliefs about bilingual education: Bilingual education programs which teach students entirely in their native language from five to seven years to provide transition to English do not work. They do not result, as promised to do, in better learning of English or other subjects. (Goode 17) Although Porter does not argue that a student can not learn a second language early and still continue native language development, her s ...

  • Bilingual Education - 1,271 words
    Bilingual Education Bilingual education programs have been implemented for decades. Non-English speaking students in bilingual education programs, however, have shown no academic or social improvement compared to similar students in English-only schools. The disadvantages of bilingual education programs outnumber the advantages. In addition, recent statistics suggest the need for reconstruction of the present bilingual education programs. Schools began teaching academics in languages other than English as early as the 1700s, but not until the 1960s did society recognize the hundreds of thousands of non-English speaking students struggling in the current system. Before that time, immigrants w ...

  • Dream School - 1,174 words
    Dream School I am going to write my paper on my vision of the perfect school.

  • Education Quality In The Us - 787 words
    Education Quality In The U.S. Throughout time, education has been considered a process that, every so often, must be improved. The education quality in the U.S. has declined over the years and people have been looking for a way to make improvements. A more recent proposal has been to go from a traditional nine- month schedule to an all year program. Supporters of year round schooling claim it better educates the student. However, the prospect of year round schooling proves disadvantageous, and nine month schooling is more effective. One disadvantage to all-year schooling is its high cost. More funds are necessary to cover the costs of paying the teachers and staff for one full year instead o ...

  • Lifetime Parental Support - 1,228 words
    Lifetime Parental Support Love for life Raised with strict family values, I cringe to phrases like, "I cant wait to get my children out of the house," or "As soon as my children reach 18, they are on their own." I become shocked to discover that age defines the release date in which children are no longer supported by parents. Children are the offspring to which parents give birth to in life. Regardless of the age, an individual will always be a child to ones mother or father and should receive support until, and beyond, the age of being released into the world. Support is the assistance provided on earth. In order to live happily in this world, one must be supported or support themselves wi ...

    ... epresent some of the latest in series of attacks on the civil rights gains made during the sixties. Proposition 209 is another recent attack on Affirmative Action which was a major force in guaranteeing equal rights of minorities in the workplace. Proposition 209 would do away with Affirmative Action and thus allow businesses to discriminate against racial minorities in their hiring practices. This effort to institutionalize a practice of discrimination in the business sector, represented by 209, is specifically designed to prevent racial minorities from moving up the economic ladder and gain political consciousness, which will lead to political power. Politics is the struggle for power. ...

  • Technology Vs Culture - 258 words
    Technology Vs. Culture Technology and Culture have both influenced each other equally. Technology has been directed as an improvement in our lives, but on the other hand, Culture has been present in every invention, noticeable or not, and advancement in our evolving society. Technology is becoming focused upon more and more everyday, but culture is the determining factor that decides if there is a necessity for an improvement. There are endless views and perspectives that this situation can be viewed from, but without a doubt, Technology and Culture shape one another. Culture has been a part of our society, and way of life, forever. It is almost impossible to come up with an idea that isnt i ...

    Tele Education 1.0 INTRODUCTION 1.1 Background of Tele-education Tele-education has a long history beginning with systems like that for teaching children in Australian Outback, the British Open University and other such organizations.

  • The Antipornography Feminist Movement - 2,171 words
    ... First Amendment. Unfortunately, as powerful as most of these statistics are, the majority of feminists will not budge in their fights against conservative attempts to help moral material in this country. Unfortunately, most of the feminists have lost track of their purpose in my opinion. I feel that they are institutions created to protect various aspects of womens rights. I personally think that they are just wrong for ignoring the fact that there are real victims that may or may not care about the way that interest groups battle for their good. They only know the reality of what a sex crime has done to them. These victims know that they have been robbed of their dignity and safety. Th ...

    Why Choose Abstinence Through out the years, pre-marital sex has become more and more accepted in our society. It is depicted everyday in magazines, television shows, and movies.
