Thank you Jane !!! I just want all parents to know really what is out there. I am not against any method I am for deaf kids being able to read. I am truly tired of the divisions and parents being given information on only one method. The scientific approach is not being used in deaf education.
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!

Hall of Presidents ~ See all of the nation’s presidents in this Audio-animitronic presentation of America’s history. The reading level of the material is suitable for kids in grades 6-12, but younger students can make use of the archived photos and documents.

Crime reduction: This is another importance of education to nations. How can education reduce crime? A reader of this article may be confused when the introductory part of this page included ‘crime reduction’ as one of the educational importance to nations. People separate themselves from crime because they were taught the consequences of any committed crime. These punishments of any offense make many to detach from anything that will lead them to crime. Again, with education, people learn to be disciplined and … Read more
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
Controversy has raged among educators and professionals working with children with profound hearing loss about whether deaf children benefit from learning sign language. Whereas some argue that sign is the natural language of the deaf, others believe that sign may inhibit the ability to learn vocal and written language. In West Africa for example, the major centres of economic growth are located within 150 miles of the coast. Opportunities for employment either in industrial or in agricultural areas are greater along the coast where most of the capital cities and major seaports are located. It is not surprising therefore that there is a marked relocation of population from interior to the coastal areas.
You’re so right, Pathways Preschool. A warm, loving, and inspiring teacher makes all the difference. However, the school’s program must allow her to shine. If the adult to student ratio is too high or if the owner demands too many structured activities, she’ll become frustrated and defeated. There’s a huge turnover rate for preschool teachers because of the lack of respect and low wages. Parents may choose a school because of a certain teacher, but there’s no guarantee she’ll stay around.

Pulitzer Center offers hundreds of free lesson plans, powerful classroom engagements, professional development opportunities, university partnerships, and a variety of exciting special programs for educators from K-12 through college and beyond that connect students to pressing global issues and the journalists who cover them. Great post! I am familiar with most of the DVDs you listed. I definitely like Sesame Street and Signing Time the best out of the DVDs in your list. My kids seem to enjoy them. Have you ever heard of MonkiSee though? It might be a little young for your older child, but the 2 year old might enjoy it. My baby loves it better than most videos I turn on. It is 30 minutes per DVD and teaches animals, colors, abc, etc… I really recommend them. 🙂 Just a tip in case you are ever on the look out for other education DVDs. Sometimes fun and educational DVDs can be hard to find. 🙂 Best to you!

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. I shall be completely civil in my response. I do not WATCH television at all. I read thank you! What I am saying is based upon experience and commonsense. The purpose of a college education is to have a HIGHER and BETTER quality of life and relationships, not to settle for an average Joe/Josephina when one can do better, Jeez! Why are people so content to settle for an amoebic, humdrum, barely surviving existence when they can have an affluently fantastic life? Well, I am totally nonplussed here! I thought that intelligent, well educated people want an affluent life-well, I guess not! Well, YOUR loss, not mine!
You’re funny, gm, funny and so sad at the same time. I really do hope that one day you learn some of what is worth knowing in this world, but it won’t come from a book when you do, and it won’t come from a college. It will come from the world … Read more
