  • Afterschool Care - 832 words
    After-School Care Posner and Vandells article, Low-Income Childrens After-School Care: Are There Beneficial Effects of After-School Programs provides valuable research to support the need for quality after-school programs for low-income children. Low-income children need after-school programs like UCLinks because poverty affects children directly because it limits the material resources available to them and indirectly because of the psychological distress it engenders in parents, which in turn negatively influences parental behavior.(1) The time a child spends after-school is also important to their academic and social development. The quality and type of after-school care a child receives ...

  • Bilingual Education Vs English Only - 2,104 words
    Bilingual Education Vs. English Only The Debate Between Bilingual Education and English Immersion Programs Bilingual Education is defined as any school program that uses two languages. In a more theoretical sense it is any educational program whose ultimate goal is for the participants to be fully versed in all facets of both languages (i.e., able to listen, speak , read, and write in both languages). The definition of a coordinated, developmental bilingual approach has emphasized the goal of being equally fluid in both languages. Realistically, this has not been the goal for most K-12 bilingual schools in the United States. More commonly in the United States we are using the words bilingual ...

  • Catcher In The Rye - 507 words
    Catcher In The Rye Should Holden Caufield be in a mental hospital? I believe that Holden Caufield should be in a hospital, at least for a short term stay. There are two main reasons that he should do this. The first is that it will help him get back on his feet and get all his school work under control. The second is that he will be able to talk to his parents more openly once he gets his problems out in the open where they can be seen and analyzed. Holden really needs to talk to his family about his troubles because that is the place where most of them originated. Holden is a very troubled person. His one brother, Allie, who was two years younger, had died of leukemia. Holden really misses ...

  • Child Abluse - 1,980 words
    Child Abluse 1 What is Child Abuse? By definition, child abuse is the deliberate and willful injury of a child by a caretaker hitting, beating with an object, slamming against a wall, even killing. It involves active, hostile, aggressive treatment. The key word in the definition of child abuse is deliberate. Why would anyone physically harm a child? The physical destruction of a child is the extreme reaction of parents to the stress of having children. Most people are not aware of the fact that deliberately hitting a child is considered a felony in all fifty states. Abuse of children is more common than most people realize. At least one out of five adult women and one out of every ten adult ...

  • Elementary Phys Ed - 1,039 words
    Elementary Phys. Ed The effect of physical education on elementary students is noticeable through all types of skill development. From personal experiences, people can conclude that there is more to games and activities than just expending energy to relieve and calm younger children. The main focus of my ideas is mainly directed towards motor skills, relationships and how they contribute to student learning, and setting and achieving goals as well as the five areas to which I set beliefs, theories, and assumptions. Children, especially young, need to learn basic motor skills to make their physical life easier when they get older. Sometimes motor skills come to us phylogenetically, such as wa ...

  • False Memory - 1,581 words
    False Memory Memory is the mental faculty of retaining and recalling past experiences. A repressed memory is one that is retained in the sub conscious mind, where one is not aware of it but where it can still affect both conscious thoughts and behavior. When memory is distorted or confabulated, the result can be what has been called the False Memory Syndrome: a condition in which a person's identity and interpersonal relationships are entered around a memory of traumatic experience which is objectively false but in which the person strongly believes. Note that the syndrome is not characterized by false memories as such. We all have memories that are inaccurate. Rather, the syndrome may be di ...

  • Fs For Society Or For Students - 878 words
    Fs For Society or For Students? The American education system has been taking some serious hits recently. In an article entitled "What Our Education System Needs Is More Fs," Carl Singleton suggests that students are merely attending class, but do not complete an acceptable level of learning. Teaching levels are of low quality and impersonal in nature with an emphasis on passing the students from their classroom to the next without ensuring their level of learning meets the minimum requirements. By a widespread issuing of Fs, we as a society must look at the cause and effect aspect this will produce. Giving Fs will not solve the problems Singleton suggests, but create new ones. Society must ...

  • History Of Nursery Ryhmes - 1,554 words
    History Of Nursery Ryhmes When you think of nursery rhymes, do you think of innocent, silly games you played as a child? Think again. Most of the nursery rhymes that have become so popular with the children were never intended for them. Most began as folk songs or ballads sung in taverns. These songs (rhymes) all most always were written to make fun of religious leaders or to gossip about kings and queens (Brittanica pars. 1-5). Nursery rhymes are being studied the past few decades as a way to help children learn their alphabet and numbers. These rhymes have been proven affective in helping children's language skills improve. As I began to explore different nursery rhymes, I found that they ...

  • Home And School Education - 1,342 words
    Home And School Education What do George Washington, Thomas Edison and Theodore Roosevelt have in common besides fame? None of them joined school formally (Winger and Kantrowitz 6). In recent years, many have followed their example and started learning at home in the United States. The number of home schooled children has greatly increased over the past decade. Many have argued against home schooling while many others see no negative outcomes involved. Although homeschooling has no major benefits over public schooling, evidence shows that parents can help children achieve a level of education similar to other school students and that homeschooled children do not lack in social skills. Home s ...

  • Lessons Of Life - 1,041 words
    Lessons of Life Steve sat at the dinner table eating breakfast with Steves little sister, Jessy, sat across from him. "Steve", she said, "wheres skipper?" "Hes gone now" I said. "Is he up in heaven? I want him back." "Me too," Steve said. "I miss him a lot," she said. "I know," Steve said, "so do I." Death is a hard concept for a small child to grasp. Its difficult to explain how someone can be here one day and gone the next. Children sometimes do not fully understand it, but when a loved one such as a parent dies a child can be devastated. Loss is something that everyone has to deal with at some point in his or her life. Fairy tales help children deal with lifes difficulties such as death a ...

  • Media Violence - 1,097 words
    Media Violence Jason Brooks English 101 Nov. 14, 1997 Persuasive Essay: The Impact of Media Violence "Monkey see, monkey do" has become a well-known saying in today's society, but is it correct? Just sixty years ago the invention of the television was viewed as a technological curiosity with black and white ghost-like figures on a screen so small hardly anyone could see them. Today that curiosity has become a constant companion to many, mainly children. From reporting the news and persuading us to buy certain products, to providing programs that depict violence, television has all but replaced written material. Unfortunately, it is these violent programs that are endangering our present-day ...

  • Physical Education In School - 409 words
    Physical Education In School I believe that Elementary School physical education is an essential curriculum for the development of all children. Early physical education classes provide children with a medium for progression from the random play stage to the eventual organized game and eventual structured learning. Throughout this process, children learn the value of group dynamics. Values such as sharing, team play, communication and respect for others become common practice. Apart from group development, physical education at an early age can also dramatically help children succeed in the classroom environment. All children learn at different rates. Learning new ideas and developing them r ...

  • Play Therapy - 998 words
    Play Therapy Play Therapy Play therapy is a good intervention approach for working with young children who lack the verbal abilities to describe their difficulties clearly enough to receive support and assistance from counselors. This strategy seems to work with children experiencing a broad range of difficulties. The play therapist must carefully select toys that will help children to express their thoughts and feelings. The arrangement of the toys and the atmosphere in the play therapy setting must provide comfort and consistency so that children will feel safe in acting out problem situations and relationships. Although each approach to play therapy has its own philosophy for the process ...
