This is about how I help my son, who is dyslexic and dyspraxic with his schoolwork and with his self-esteem. Discovery Education partners with like-minded organizations around the world to create a broad range of free classroom and family learning resources that complement and extend learning beyond the bell. Oh dear…this was supposed to be a comment; not its own hub! Well done, Learn Things Web. Voted Up, Useful and Interesting.
Raising your nose into the air at the sight of a 2 year old playing outside in diapers is fluff no matter how important it might seem to let the world know you are disgusted. Donating clothing to help those in need is what counts. The pendulum of the mind oscillates between sense and nonsense, not between right and wrong.

The periodic table of elements is a very useful tool for both chemistry students and chemists. It shows all known natural elements as well as every synthetic one made in labs. Each element is placed in its own box along with several numbers. Interpreting the numbers can provide valuable information about the element. The table can be a bit overwhelming for chemistry students, however. Games and puzzles can be very useful in helping them to understand it. These activities can also be great fun. This bit I don’t. Kids can get structure and socialization from other sources besides a traditional brick-and-mortar school. Successful home-school parents are usually highly organized and structured people to begin with, so they can impart the structure thing on their kids. Also, there are many home-school cooperatives where kids get together and socialize. Plus there’s municipal sports leagues, church youth groups, 4-H, stuff like that.
It used to be that a high school diploma was enough to ensure success in the workforce. These days, not even a college degree can guarantee a comfortable future. The competitiveness of the job market has placed more and more emphasis on getting an early start on the fundamentals to give … Read more
Music is one of the most common ‘languages’ around the world. People of all nationalities listen to, play, learn, and teach music and a variety of instruments. To become a politician, you don’t need to have any education and our constitution does not state any mandatory standards. But mind you that doesn’t mean that you don’t need any education. As our society matures, more and more young and educated citizens are joining political parties on a full-time basis. If you are in college, then join your university level politics wing or you can join any major party as a youth wing member.
My nine year old son shows some talent with writing poetry and likes to read funny poetry. He has two younger siblings. We haven’t found the time to explore poetry writing like we should. I think he’d love it and be good at it. I voted for one site, Welcome to PS4K. Kid poems and stories can be submitted and voted on. I added your plexo to my recent LOTD lens, Reading Starts at Home. I hope more people vote and check out your sites.

Inclusive education is about the integration approach of the disabled learners in schools. It is under this inclusion model that learners with special needs spend most or all of their time with non-disabled learners. While inclusive education has its benefits, there are enormous challenges hindering its effective implementation especially in developing countries. This article briefly examines the following: Inadequate Educational Facilities, Poor Teacher Training, Poor policy implementation. There are certainly some issues with the law, but on the whole the IDEA is a requirement to allow children with disabilities to have equal access to the curriculum, and an equal opportunity to succeed. In general, the criticisms are not applicable to the majority of children receiving services under an individualized educational plan (IEP). A number of children receive reading supports, speech therapy, and other services to create an environment which fosters success. While the initial services cost taxpayers money, there are cost savings over the long term – a child who obtains an appropriate education is more likely to be employed and become a productive member of society. Refusing to educate a significant proportion of the population (up to 10% of American children receive services under the IDEA) would create a … Read more
Thingiverse Education provides over a hundred free lessons that make teaching with a 3D printer easier and more effective for a variety of grade levels and subjects. It also provides a community where educators can exchange best practices or remix projects. It’s easier for people to think that the homeless are just lazy and prefer to live on handouts. It gives people a sense of control over their own lives, thinking that it cannot happen to them because they are not lazy and do have jobs. Thanks for this lens. Very stereotype-breaking.
I applaud to you! Thank you! I have someone speaking my mind!Vote up and useful! hmm… There is infact a big difference in educated/exposed to culture vs the opposite though. Nevertheless, educated does not have to mean college grad. Intelligence always seeks out learning whether in an institution, in life, or self taught.
Unfortunately, everybody knows this but the big institutions are scared from change. Tony, this is really an insightful profile of an educated person.

Psychology is the study of people’s behavior, performance, and mental operations. It also refers to the application of the knowledge, which can be used to understand events, treat mental health issues, and improve education, employment, and relationships. The subject lies at the intersection of applied, educational, and theoretical science. Each of us is different and each of us needs a different potion of skills and knowledge in order to develop to our full potential. If somebody has a particular talent, they should be allowed to develop it. While we are in school, our uniqueness is simply collapsing under the burden of an unnecessarily crammed school curriculum that wants to turn us into walking encyclopedias with little original taught. A musician should be allowed to be a musician, a mathematician should be allowed to be a mathematician and a runner should be allowed run.
This is one of the most contended and criticized portions of the IDEA law. there is a great deal of controversy over placing significantly disabled children in a mainstream classroom. The determination of a child’s least restrictive environment is fraught with emotions and is a difficult decision in some circumstances.

With 189 member countries, staff from more 170 countries, and offices in over 130 locations, the World Bank Group is a unique global partnership: five institutions working for sustainable solutions that reduce poverty and build shared prosperity in developing countries. They are often still in the process of applying for it. The first denial can take up to six months and the first appeal takes around 500 days. During that time the physically disabled with nowhere to live are both unable to work and not getting any income. Also, to get Disability, applicants must be available to be contacted and able to make it to appointments, sometimes hundreds of miles away. Sometimes those aren’t even possible for homeless people. Being without an address might cause them to experience a delay too great in mail delivery making them disqualified to receive assistance for missing an appointment. Food assistance is often pretty much all they can get. That covers some of why the physically disabled homeless are out on the streets.

When I read about PBS losing funding, it irritates me because as a father of two I have seen how effective their programming is at being entertaining and educational. It doesn’t just stop at their TV programming, though; their website is unmatched when it comes to fun and education. Writing is a process. It is not a simple set of steps into which one can just plug information. Simply teaching the steps of the writing process is worthless. Memorizing the order of steps does no good. It is important to implement them and practice. The students need to see how these steps are useful and will help them. The writing process can be taught by modeling it for the students. That way they could see exactly how it works. While teaching the writing process, it would be an ideal time to teach the mechanics of writing. Lessons about grammar and writing mechanics cannot be taught as individual entities. They must be used in conjunction with the rest of the curriculum. Grammar and writing mechanics need to be integrated into the general curriculum and not taught as separate units.
Very Nice lens. Thank you. I know a few people who will … Read more
Education serves as a driver for development and the elimination of extreme poverty. Education is transformational for individuals and societies-it creates pathways to better health, economic growth, a sustainable environment, and peaceful, democratic societies. A person’s earnings increase by 10 percent with each year of school they complete. Women with higher levels of education have healthier children. And increasing the average level of higher education in a country by just one year can add half a percentage point of growth to GDP. If you’re a secular or nonchristian homeschooler, it’s important to note that the Thomas Jefferson method as outlined by De Mille is heavily Christian. This definitely has some influence on the great books list provided by De Mille. If you’re a secular homeschooler, it is possible to read De Mille’s book and implement his ideas but you may want to develop your own great books list.

Thank you.
Attending public school has become an increasingly difficult problem for young people because it is difficult to learn and function when so many people are demanding that their needs be met. Hi Tony, you make perfect sense from the very first phrase itself. I am completely overwhelmed by your views and I am certain I would never have been able to express my views on the same topic as clearly as you have, by even ten percent.
