This is about how I help my son, who is dyslexic and dyspraxic with his schoolwork and with his self-esteem. As unpopular as GMWilliams’s posted facts may be, they are nonetheless true, statistically speaking. Statistically, marriages last longer when both parties are similar in a number of respects including especially religion, education, and views on money. Since money is the number one reason for divorce and since income is generally proportional to education level, it stands to reason that educational disparities can be a harbinger of problems in an relationship.
Direct instruction is an effective teaching method in special education but far less so in mainstream education. Research shows that early literacy is most effective when presented in an organic way throughout the school day: the children reciting nursery rhymes and poems, singing songs, dictating stories to the teacher, writing words with inventive spelling, listening to stories and acting them out, making meaningful connections between words on the page and real life experiences.
African-Americans lag substantially behind their counterparts in education. Such educational inequality for black males is a moral issue; a challenge to fairness or justice in a society in which education is the major public instrument for ‘leveling … Read more
Start here to get Minecraft: Education Edition for your classroom, school, or district. The downside to this book is that it is full of internet sources, like many internet sources they move around a bit on the web. So some of the links either are no longer there or will have to be searched for. Cool resource! I have been to the Shel Silverstein one. It’s cool! Blessed by the poetry angel!
This lens is a great eye-opener to help people understand how homelessness happens. Blessed by a SquidAngel. We cut out bits of a shark drawing and wrote questions and answers in lift the flap form. PS, as a home-schooled child, I graduated from high school early, from university early, have a few degrees, and am now a teacher!
No, I haven’t, but I can see that these would be very useful indeed! Love the crocodile toothache video! I did vote UP and interesting on this hub. This homeless topic is not beautiful or funny, at least to me. Christine – good to see you here! Thanks for the great comment, and I agree with your points.

Children become fluent in reading with practice, practice, practice. I’ve used these free, engaging reading games to hold their attention and keep them motivated. They are among the best methods for turning the hard work of learning to read into play. Very interesting. I just graduated with an associates in IT Business Management and I’m feeling the effects of not having a bachelors. I will try to pursue that if time and life permits… Thanks for the great tips. I gave you thumbs up and interesting.
I believe that no college and/or postgraduate educated woman should ever go with a lesser educated and/or blue collar man. First of all, they have nothing in common. The worldview of the college and/or postgraduate educated woman is more vast than that of the blue collar man. She also has more intellectual and cultural interests than he does and/or will ever have.
Business: Consumer psychologists study consumers’ behaviors to find insights that could helpful for businesses. Industrial-organizational psychologists, on the other hand, focus their attention within the company, looking for ways to increase productivity through things such as better employee selection and training or a better designed or organized workplace. Psychologists can work for … Read more

Students will come from an array of backgrounds and have different dialects. It is important for the teacher to model Standard American English. The students will follow the teacher, so it is necessary to set a good example by using SAE. When modeling and using SAE, it is necessary to not demean the dialect of anyone else. It is important that the students know their dialect is not wrong. Students should never feel alienated for speaking in their natural … Read more
From students and teachers to administrators and employers, at ETS we provide a range of solutions designed to meet the many different needs — and goals — of partners like you. I think that is a major part of it. But we also have to allow for individual personalities. A parent can do everything right and for whatever reason have a child that will not excel and will not value education. I may be wrong but I seem to remember you complaining about poor people having large families to benefit from government hand outs.
He is twenty four years of age today and never had a cavity and is highly intelligent. For me, this turned out to be a smart choice that I never regretted. I got my life back. Sorry, we’re currently having trouble processing new newsletter signups. Please try again later.
Picture Match – Match a picture to a beginning-letter or short- or long-vowel sounds. Also, it is vital that you get your child properly assessed. Dyslexia Action is packed with information about this if you are in the UK. In the US Dyslexia Reading Well is a good starting point – it is full of advice on … Read more
Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System ( IPED s) includes information from every college, university, and technical and vocational institution that participates in the federal student financial aid programs. Datasets include year-over-year enrollments, program completions, graduation rates, faculty and staff, finances, institutional prices, and student financial aid. My 4th grade teacher, Miss Cartarphen, whom I’ve mentioned more than once, was such an excellent and creative English grammar teacher (and some subjects do require learning what is already established knowledge in order to be able to think and create more independently!). She had an uncanny ability to INSTILL that dry subject into her students and cause us to appreciate it in such a way that we simply learned to use it almost painlessly! BUT – she lacked the educational credentials and was ultimately fired from the faculty even though she had taught some of the people on the school board who fired her! Guess they missed her lessons in wisdom.
With physics, it would be difficult to do just online courses because the students need to conduct experiments to observe for themselves the effects and see theories in action. Most wouldn’t have the necessary equipment at home to do those experiments.

Over the past twenty-five years, the educational advancement made by women has been significant. The gaps for educational attainment between the genders have all but disappeared for the young women being educated today. While girls still lag somewhat behind boys on mathematical and science achievement, girls in high school average higher grades and reach higher achievement levels in reading and writing compared to same age boys. The discrepancies in achievement by subject persist into adulthood. It has been shown that women between the ages of 16 and 65 achieved higher scores on comprehension and interpretation of prose that similar age men. There were also less women (40 percent) scoring at a low level in these areas compared to men (44 percent). Consistent with finding from earlier ages, women do not score as well as men in number related subjects such as mathematics (Sax, 2008). Great Lens: I have always found that if an activity is not fun for the adult the chances are the 3 year old will not enjoy it too. Children take their love of play from those around them. All too often parents just sit the child in front of the TV and wonder why when they … Read more
We oversee the state’s diverse public school system, which is responsible for the education of more than six million children and young adults in more than 10,000 schools with 295,000 teachers. We are in charge of enforcing education law and regulations and continuing to reform and improve public school programs. As I began to get more successful in my work life, I stopped going to junior college for a while because of my work hours and the challenges college was providing. I didn’t really have to overcome adversity in my homeschool setting, so it was a coping skill I needed but had not yet obtained.
Excellent hub. I have four children in grade school now. Fortunately, my oldest is able to attend SCF Collegiate School, she started last year for sixth grade. It’s based on a European learning style. This will be her second year in it and we couldn’t be happier.
Yes, Denise, our expectations for public school teachers are unrealistically high. They cannot be everything to everybody, but we so want them to be. With this huge push for academic rigor at younger and younger ages, I see children getting turned off to reading. They’re getting instructed on … Read more
Starting at $189, Windows 10 devices support a powerful and flexible platform to easily manage and deploy apps – now streamlined for security and performance with the new Windows 10 S. To identify needs, problems, and gaps in population education for both the in-school and out-of-school sectors. For the first time in the history of the United States, there are more single parents than those who are married. Hi, Bill. Yes, my students love playing science games, too. Thanks for the visit and the comment.
The reason I chose to study clinical psychology was a direct result of suffering from panic attacks. I was dealt a bad hand of psychologists. As a consequence, my condition only worsened. And when I hit rock bottom, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I set out to learn more about psychology—in particular, I wanted to learn about anxiety disorders and find the best treatment options.

Sometimes correspondence education is called Correspondence Courses, Extension Courses, Extended Studies, Home Study, Continuing Education, External Studies, Self-Paced Studies, Independent Studies and Distance Learning (See Reference 1). Similarly, distance education is also called Cyber Education, Online Education, Virtual Education, Technology-Supported Education, Hybrid Education and Distributed Learning. Given the plethora of educational delivery modes currently available, students often get confused over the similarities and differences between correspondence education and distance education, further compounded by the fact that there are still other online delivery modes, such as synchronous live chats or hybrid online classes, among others. BlondeNAmbitious- I think there were some good general points, but off the mark on some. I am successful, and I think ‘The Secret’ is great…those that don’t know how to use it (like the poor), will think it is a ‘Pie-in-the-Sky’ miracle, but still fail. One has to understand what the ‘Secret’ actually is, and know how to apply it (i.e. it is not tangible until you actually get it). One needs to read on the law of attraction (also part of ‘The Secret’), to understand how one’s attitute can make the difference in one’s circumstance. Lousy at business, not necessarily…lousy at finances, absolutely! Slave for … Read more
