  • Creating A Learning Environment - 1,349 words
    Creating A Learning Environment Creating a Learning Environment We spent a great deal of time discussing learning styles during our first class periods - specifically as relating to adult learning. The focus of this class as evidenced by the title - "College Teaching" - is geared towards the teaching of college students who typically are going to be in the under-30 age bracket. As potential college-level and adult education teachers, I believe we also need to consider the particular motivations of the college students in addition to their learning styles. The motivations may be very different and may not be necessarily age related. Although one certainly cannot customize the class to accommo ...

  • Add And Learning Strategies - 1,641 words
    Add And Learning Strategies Attention can be defined as the process of selecting certain environmental inputs needed for cognitive processing. Information that we are capable of sensing stays with us in the sensory register for a very brief period of time. From this point the information is cognitively processed. The role of attention can be found in the moving of this information from the sensory register into the working memory. Normal attention span seems to develop in three stages. First, the childs attention is said to be overly exclusive. This is a term used by psychologists to describe attention that is focused on a single object for a long period of time while tuning out all other st ...

Then she tried to bargain with her friends by saying, "I'll talk to him after Social class, I swear." But still the girls continued to drag her over to this boy. Then came the words I was waiting to hear, "You don't want to be the only one at this dance without a date, only the dorky girls go to the spring dance dateless!" Eventually this girl did end up going over to the boy outside. Another example of peer pressure I observed was within a group of boys. About five or six boys were "daring" one boy to ...

    Although resources are not the most important part of education, there are several components that help to develop an environment in which music flourishes. Like any other classroom, a music classroom should be equipped with basics such as a chalkboard and desks. The best chalkboards include sections that are lined with the lines of a musical staff.

    Arguement On The Provision Of Cable Television On College Campuses There is a Problem with Having Cable Television on College Campuses Eleven oclock on a Tuesday night, walking through the brightly lit halls, many doors wide open in a dormitory complex on the campus of Bowling Green State University, one can see that the only light that emerges from the open doors is the constantly changing illumination coming from television consoles. Passing from door to door, sounds such as sports cheers, gun shots, screams of people being slain, and moans of woman in ecstasy can be heard. Although many students have the time to watch the television, many of them dont. The televisions utter no words of ma ...

  • Argumetative Single Gender Schooling - 855 words
    Argumetative Single Gender Schooling Single Gender Schooling: A better learning environment For years, educators have searched for better and more effective ways of teaching. Their efforts have resulted in the specialization of instruction according to the specific needs of different students. We have seen therefore, specific classes for dyslexic children, special instruction for visual learners, teaching methods, which target non-native English speakers etc. At a more basic level however, the separation of our educational efforts by gender, has proven to be controversial at best. I believe that grouping young students according to sex, provides a better learning environment and is more cond ...

Prevention is more likely to be successful when efforts directed at altering individual behavior operate in tandem with those directed at altering the environment.

    Does McdonaldS Offer A Model Which Other Businesses Should Follow? Does McDonalds offer a model which other businesses should follow?

McDonalds is now the international market leader for fast food, and has been ever since its pioneering first restaurant was launched in San Bernardino, California in 1948.

  • Dress Codes - 386 words
    Dress Codes During the 1980's, some schools began to impose dress codes in order to obtain a proper school environment. The dress codes stated that students should be dressed decently and clothing or hair fashions should not distract other students. I believe that dress codes should be imposed in order to eliminate problems in a public schools. Have you ever turned on the TV and heard about a kid who was beat up because someone wanted to steal his shoes or his jacket? Well I remember a few times were I turned on the news and heard this. Problems like this are exactly the reason why dress codes should be placed in public schools. Wearing extravagant clothing can cause problems while in school ...

    Field Work For my field work project, I chose to do an observation of a public high school and a private high school. The schools I decided to observe were Tottenville Public High School and The Francis School, both of which are located in demographically similar neighborhoods. The purpose for choosing two schools with similar characteristics was to have schools with equal social and economical factors encompassing them. This, I felt would make my findings unbiased within the scope of the project. My rationale for choosing this was to comparatively analyze the differences and similarities between both of the schools, and also to see just how true the stereotype is that private schools are be ...

Coveted the inconceivable abilities of masterminds such as Galileo and Einstein? Throughout the history of man it has been these kinds of great minds that deviate from the current method of thinking, in turn creating new lines of reason and more holistic understandings of the world around us. We label them "gifted and talented" but they are truly our inventors, our leaders, our Mozarts and Michelangelos. In spite of this they are at risk for extinction. Presently, the sociocultural surrounding in which our children grow do not cater to ...
