A Case of Classroom Management
...This paper is a review of the scholarly article that I have chosen from a journal called “Journal of Curriculum Studies” and the article that caught my attention was “Classroom management as manner and method”. It immediately appeared to be a well organized piece of writing with a logical structure and interesting points that the author manages to prove in the end...
Children’s ability to read and write: does it depend on knowledge of grammar
...Until the 1960’s the vast majority of schools in England, and at that other parts of the traditional English speaking world such as the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, taught grammar in schools. Deemed by some academics as pointless it was found that by 1980 the tradition of teaching grammar had disappeared in state funded comprehensive schools...
Discuss the Idea that all Students Have to Learn how to Speak Correct English at Schools
...Language change is a linguistic issue arising in the debate. It has been suggested that: “The chief linguistic characteristic of standardisation is suppression of optional variation at all levels of language. Standardisation is therefore partly aimed at preventing or inhibiting linguistic change.” Milroy & Milroy 1985. P.30
Just as standardisation causes problems for linguistics, linguistics cause problems for a standard: “Linguistic change, especially in phonology and grammar, originates in speech rather than in writing: it is thus characteristic of spoken forms to be perpetually in a state of change.” Milroy & Milroy 1985, P.47.....
New Opportunities in the Learning Field
...Education is the knowledge or skill obtained or developed by a learning process or also an instructive or enlightening experience. This idea of education through enlightenment and instruction seems somewhat ideal by today’s standards but this ideal did once exist long before our arrival, in the time of the Athenian School of Thought. It was here that ancient philosophers like Plato, Aristotle, Socrates and Pythagorus gathered under ideal classical architecture to discuss and debate. These men were, and still are, considered great thinkers, and although time has elapsed and so many things have changed, students continue to study their ideas and theories...
Background of Teaching Principles
...There are many different theories of how people learn, however, the two that are to be discussed are closely related to how my students learn and how these have affected the planning of my teaching.
Cognitivists have an alternative view and instead of placing their focus on the task, they place their focus on the learners and how they gain and organise their knowledge (Reece and Walker 2003). The basis of this is that learners do not merely receive information, but actively think about what it means to them, learning (Reece and Walker 2003)...
