By the time most teenagers reach grade twelve, they have had over six different sexual partners.

  • Information and Knowledge in the Age of Cyberspace

    6 pages in length. Knowledge and information have become synonymous in the cybernetic age, but not necessarily to the benefit of understanding. The power of this statement illustrates that while technology might improve man's progress in some areas, it also fails to do so in a holistic manner. The global community is bombarded with information from myriad sources unlike any other time in history, which would lead one to presume this generation to be more knowledgeable than their parents or grandparents. This is, indeed, a logical deduction to make considering this age group was quite literally brought up in the midst of the technological revolution. However, the barrage of information today's younger generation receives on a daily basis via the Internet, television, radio, newspapers and magazines serves more to clog the assimilation into understanding than to allow for it.

    This is a 10 page paper discussing the history of public education in the United States. Since the 17th century, the Americans have been concerned with the support of public education in the United States. Many public schools which opened, the first reported in Boston in 1642, were still mainly for the education of those in the middle and upper classes as the lower classes were dependent upon the income brought in by their children. Through the support of advocates for the importance of public education, such Horace Mann and later, the Philadelphia Working Men’s Committee, the idea of public education funded by the state became more of a reality with stipulations which would allow for children to work and attend school at the same time. Many discriminatory aspects were still to be overcome however as the education of women, racial minorities and Catholics were highly restricted. Several innovators and centuries later, the development of public education was expanded to include women, African Americans and other minorities aided by laws of desegregation in the Fourteenth Amendment. Today, public education is still a controversial issue since the voucher system has been introduced to allow individuals to apply their public education taxes to tuition to private institutions which may provide more suitable and specific educational needs for those who do not wish to educate their children in the state and federal based curriculum. Regardless of the results of this latest controversial issue, public education will always remain an important part of the American society in their efforts to educate all Americans without fear of financial loss or discrimination.

    A 12 page paper. As schools become even more diversified, teachers face daunting challenges in creating a classroom that meets the needs of all students.

    15 pages in length. Reaching and teaching all students in today's troubled academic climate - no matter their (in)capacity to learn - has presented quite a challenge for educators who are often faced with the responsibility of instructing many different types of students within a single classroom. Various methods have been introduced as a means by which to address a system whereby at-risk students fall through the cracks because of not being taught in a way they understand, however, not all have demonstrated a true ability to overcome the struggle. Drs. Dorothy Hall and Patricia Cunningham recognize how all children do not learn alike and therefore require "substantial instruction to support the learning personalities of all students" (Hall et al, 2001), which is why they developed the Four-Blocks Literacy Model. As a "multilevel, balanced literacy framework" (Hall et al, 2001), Four-Blocks incorporates four separate components into each day's lesson plans that instruct children as to how they can read, write and spell better, an approach that focuses upon the academic diversity found in today's schools.

  • Appreciation of Music Throughout Time

    30 pages in length. One of the reasons that the 'average Joe' cares little for classical music is that he knows nothing of it. We have raised generations in which it is common for the average person to be unable to distinguish between Vivaldi and Tchaikovsky. Khatchaturian is an unknown name, and a response of, 'I've heard that one—it's on all the old cartoons' is commonplace. Some observers believe that classical music is now a special taste, like Greek language or pre-Columbian archeology. With the proper exposure and the proper method of teaching—that of anticipated surprise rather than supreme boredom and all-too-common pretentiousness—that respect can slip into a love of the music that will be enduring for a lifetime and so preserve the genius of the ages. Bibliography lists 16 sources.

  • Fast Food Nation by Eric Schlosser and the Opinions of Freire and Thoman

    7 pages in length. Critically analyzing Eric Schlosser's "Fast Food Nation" based upon the opinions of Thoman and Freire enables one to better understand the extent to which Schlosser's concept is adopted – sometimes subtly, other times more obviously – throughout the vastness of academic psychology. Clearly, the fundamental purpose of Schlosser's book is to illustrate how homogenized society has become in direct relation to the fast food mentality; as such, contemporary education has been unwittingly drawn into the downward spiral of this existence, serving to deny students the ability to apply self-determination rather than coercion, intentionality rather than reaction, creativity rather than homogeneity and rationality rather than chance.

  • Assessment of the Observation 'Only the Curious Will Learn'

    A 5 page paper assessing the validity of the statement, “only the curious will learn.” The motivation that a three-month-old baby has for finger play with her own hands does not constitute the same type of curiosity such as that which led Madame Curie to investigate radiation or drove Isaac Newton to intercept a ray of sunlight with a prism. Both types encourage learning, however. It all begins with a question, and there can be no questioning without curiosity driving its origin. The paper discusses Homer Hickam’s curiosity about rockets and subsequent development of intense desire to learn the same math, chemistry and physics that he had disdained before seeing the Soviet Sputnik fly over his West Virginia home in 1957.

  • Beer and Circus How Big Time College Sports is Crippling Undergraduate Education by Murray Sperber

    6 pages in length. Murray Sperber's gutsy portrayal of academia gone awry gives readers a significantly better perspective of just how influential big money has become in determining the level of education being taught at contemporary colleges. The extent to which sports and all its generated income has long been a big part of collegiate life is both grand and far-reaching; that the pursuit of athletics and the lure of party life has overtaken a solid academic focus, however, is what Sperber vocalizes as being inexcusable and wholly responsible for the downfall of society's undergraduate scholastic future. No additional sources cited.

  • Bolman and Deal's Theories as they relate to School Systems

    This is a 10 page paper discussing the primary management practices within the school system in the context of Bolman and Deal’s four organizational frames. Bolman and Deal’s text “Reframing Organizations” (2003) deals with the concepts of frames within the workplace which employs the “usable knowledge” available from a management perspective and also addresses the failures within organizations “due to lack of imagination”. Organizations are broken into the four conceptual “frames” of structural, human resources, political and symbolic which account for the various aspects of planning, staffing, organizing, directing and controlling within any organization. The management functions within school systems can also work within these frames as they include all of the same vital components which must be managed and maintained as within corporations. A study published by Souchet (2001) is used to show the management practices within the school system in regards to the role of a principal within a small urban setting in the Mid-Western United States. The school principal within the school setting is “also known as the middle manager and the site administrator” in organizational terms and is considered as the major managerial influence within the school as he or she must determine “whether the education is effective or ineffective, whether morale is high or low, whether the school climate is positive or negative; whether personnel are satisfied or dissatisfied; whether students achieve or don’t achieve; whether parents and the public are cooperative or uncooperative; and whether there is effective or ineffective management and leadership”.

  • Math Assessment, Authentic Assessment Programs, and Inconsistencies

    This is a 10 page paper discussing the interpretative and inconsistent nature of math assessment and possible authentic assessment programs. Several issues relate to the inconsistent and interpretative nature of math assessment within the educational curricula today. Firstly, on a national basis, studies reveal the range in attitudes in regards to importance math assessment has in the overall educational curriculum. While math assessment is often mentioned, its importance does not seem as highly weighted as other aspects of assessment of school performance. Secondly, within the school systems themselves, teachers in mathematics vary a great deal in their teaching practices which can affect assessment; perception of their students’ abilities based on social factors and past performance; perception of the importance of national and consistent assessment; and desired learning outcomes. There are many educational assessment tools which are available. However, assessment tools vary in regards to their expense, time, and curriculum considerations which can affect whether or not the tool can be usefully applied. One of the goals of the U.S. educational system is be “the first in the world in mathematics and science achievement” and some educational programs are trying to fulfill this goal by not only developing consistent national education and assessment programs but programs which are comparative on an international scale, such as that found within the International Baccalaureate Program (IB).

  • The Concept of Learning

    4 pages in length. In its simplest terms, learning is the capacity to absorb information not previously known and in most cases incorporate it into the process of living.

In short, to learn is to expand one's cognitive capacity by allowing - and hopefully encouraging - the transfer of thoughts, ideas and concepts from sources other than the self.
