  • 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.

While many Caucasians do not see the problem being as severe as it is represented, Latinos angrily reply that the lighter skinned race has not had to endure such prejudice and, therefore, cannot begin to identify with the situation. Caucasian Americans do not interpret racism as a big problem, therefore, they do not see a need for government intervention.

  • Reading and Writing Fundamentals and the 'Hooked on Phonics' Program

    This 14 page report discusses the reading program “Hooked on Phonics” that is used to help children in learning to read and write. Proponents of the program believe that it is vitally important to understand that a great number of the children who appear to be unable to understand a concept or a set of directions are actually having problems recognizing actual words. As a result of having to direct their focus so carefully and devote so much attention to slowly and carefully figuring out the words, they focus less attention on what the text means. Children who recognize words more readily can focus more attention on meaning. That recognition can be enhanced through understanding the relationship that exists between sounds and letters in an alphabetic code. Phonics then establishes the basis for that process of decoding words. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • Children and Early Formal Educational Instruction

    An 11 page paper. There is a significant amount of pressure to begin children in formal education programs younger and younger. For this essay, a 'formal education program' is defined as any systematic early childhood education program where children receive any type of rating on cognitive performance, even reciting their numbers or the alphabet. It seems to make sense to think that sending children to formal programs at early ages would be detrimental to them. The literature belies this supposition, however, in fact, there is an ever-increasing amount of literature that demonstrates the short- and long-term benefits of very early education. This essay discusses the issues and presents the literature. The writer does comment on the practice of using standardized tests with four-year-olds. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

Research shows that between sixth grade and junior high school, students' intentions to become sexually active increase (Price, et al, 2003). Therefore, the upper elementary grades provide an ideal time to provide a positive influence on sexual behavior by providing honest answers to sexual issues. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • 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. In short, the information is dispensed but the receivers have not been adequately taught how to decipher and retain what is important. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • Heath Care and Nursing's Pender Promotion Model

    An 8 page paper discussing this model of nursing and model of health care, particularly as it relates to education.

Delivering health-enhancing information within the confines of the Pender model as well as deference to learning theory can be of tremendous benefit to individuals. It is reasonable to assume that greater progress in a shorter period of time provides additional incentive to retain new behaviors and to continue practicing them until they become ingrained. Achieving healthier behaviors over the long term is the goal of those in health promotion. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

Bibliography lists 13 sources.

  • Student Motivation Study Proposal

    An 8 page research paper that offers the outline for a proposed research study into motivational factors for high school students. There is an old saying that you can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink. Likewise, high school teachers constantly try to offer the curriculum in a manner that engages their students minds, but fail to connect with many of the adolescents that they are trying to reach. In 1984 and 1989 a Gallup/Phi Delta Kappa national poll of educators found that lack of student motivation was a top concern of all public school teachers surveyed (Gonzalez, 2002). The question that these teachers ask, that is, "what is the key to unlocking student motivation," is the principal question to be addressed by this proposed study. The paper consists primarily of a review of literature on this topic before discussing possible ways to complete the proposed research study. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Possible Benefits Of Video Games On Academics & Academic Studies

    6 pages in length. The process of learning is comprised of myriad components over and above the conventional book approach that - studies have found - has a tendency to alienate certain types of students. Clearly, the collective population of learners can no longer be lumped into a single category for reaching academic achievement given the proven fact that people absorb information in a number of different ways; as such, today's teaching methods are utilizing alternative tools by which to reach students on all levels of comprehension, not the least of which includes the surprisingly beneficial aspect of video games. Dubbed as the 'joystick generation,' contemporary high school and college students have come to academically expand from using video games as a learning tool. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Personal Definition Of Video Games

    4 pages in length. Despite the general consensus that video games encourage antisocial behavior, obesity, sedentariness and - some argue - violent tendencies, there is an entirely opposite definition to this animated, interactive entertainment many people overlook: their value as effective learning tools. The extent to which children and adolescents alike connect with the fantasy world of video games is both grand and far-reaching; that this interactive relationship has spilled over into the academic environment as an unexpected - yet highly welcome - educational device speaks to the overwhelming benefit this particular type of technology has had upon reaching and teaching students, inasmuch as being engaged with the overall learning process is half the struggle of achievement. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Four-Blocks Literacy Framework: Literature Review

    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.

  • Michael J. Schmoker's "Results Fieldbook Practical Strategies From Dramatically Improved Schools" - Critique

    4 pages in length. Michael J. Schmoker's Results Fieldbook: Practical Strategies From Dramatically Improved Schools serves to set a precedence whereby five school districts are showcased for stepping away from traditional approaches in exchange for embracing alternative methods that produce results. In examining these five school districts, it becomes clear how there is no single style of teaching that can reach every student; rather, instructors must offer a compilation of methods in order to draw out the learning potential of each individual student. The most astonishing aspect about these strategies is how they do not require extensive amounts of time to see results; using Schmoker's approach, they are both immediate and effective. No additional sources cited.

  • NCLB, View of Teachers

    A 10 page research paper that discusses how teachers see the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) act. The NCLB radically changed the nature of the public school system as it serves to deemphasize the local control of public schools, which has been a hallmark of American public education since its inception. The NCLB began to affect schools in the 2002-3 academic years, which means its effects have been ongoing for the last six years. This brings up the question of how do teachers, six years into the NCLB, perceive this legislation and its implications for the future of education in America. This literature review focuses on this question and the opinions of educators, rather than politicians or the general public. Bibliography lists 11 sources.

  • Education Research, Quantitative and Qualitative Analysis

    12 pages in length. Quantitative research should begin with an idea that is usually articulated as a hypothesis by the researcher which then, through measurement, generates data and then by deduction allows a conclusion to be drawn. In contrast to this method, qualitative research begins with intent to review a certain area. The researcher then collects data through observations and interviews and generates his or her ideas and hypotheses from these data. These inferences are largely made through what is known as inductive reasoning. The strength of the quantitative approach is in its reliability or the repeatability of the pattern. The same measurements should yield the same results every time. The strength of qualitative research lies in its validity or closeness to the truth. That means that good qualitative research, by using a diverse number of data collection methods, should actually touch the core of what is going on rather than just skimming the surface of the facts. The validity of qualitative methods is greatly improved upon by using a combination of research methods. This is a process known as triangulation and is used by independent analysis of the data by more than one researcher. The writer discusses how qualitative and quantitative research methods apply to research in education. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • 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.

  • Government, Financial Assistance, and Childcare

    5 pages in length. Today's typical family is made up of two working parents and a child or two in either the public or private school system. If those children are old enough to tend to their own personal daily needs, the pressure is significantly reduced from the parents' long list of responsibilities; however, if even one happens to be too young for school, he or she requires round-the-clock supervision that the two busy parents just cannot provide. This is where childcare comes in, offering supervised sessions that are educational, socially productive and mentally stimulating. While this option is ideal for parents, it also presents a significant financial strain for many who are already on a tight budget. With more government assistance, parents would be better able to provide adequate childcare during their workday, as well as have the peace of mind that the child is receiving the necessary mental, physical and emotional stimulation so critical to the formative years.

  • US Public Education

    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.

  • Program Proposal on School Violence Prevention

    10 pages in length. The scope of gratuitous violence, which has typically extended only as far as the mutinous fringe of society, has crossed over into a heretofore untouchable population and spawned a new and alarming perspective upon violent behavior. The extent to which schools are now faced with the dual task of preventing brutal attacks while at the same time addressing the issue of violence from its core is both grand and far-reaching; that children and adolescents are committing acts of unspeakable brutality upon their classmates and teachers speaks to a tremendous breakdown in social and cultural principles. If adults are doing such a poor job at precluding school violence, the only logical alternative is to employ those who are more like-minded to those committing the criminal acts.

  • Online Education: Balancing School With Other Life Responsibilities

    3 pages in length. Everything takes priority at one time or another; the most important thing to remember is that only one thing can take priority at a time. Balance is the key to successfully juggling an online education with work and/or family demands, however, balance requires sacrifice and compromise whereby something at sometime is going to have to be delegated a secondary preference. The greatest conflict people find when they attempt an online degree is the perceived notion of "your time is your own" from employers, friends and family alike. While the fundamental attraction of online education is the ability to achieve this goal at home, that is the only difference between it and a brick-and-mortar schedule. That online learning removes the logistic component does not mean it lacks structure of time and commitment, a realization that spawns frustration when trying to balance with work and/or family demands.

  • 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. No sources listed.

  • Learning Disability Dyscalculia

    This is an 8 page paper on the learning disability dyscalculia. Dyscalculia is a developmental mathematical learning disability which is often considered part of or the same as dyslexia, the developmental reading and writing disability. While dyslexia has been known to cause some dysfunction in the understanding of mathematical elements, dyscalculia is much more complex in that it also includes over fifty different distinct classes of mathematical disabilities which include elements of confusion of abstract and strategic thought, an inability to properly construct time, schedules, or visual representations of places and directions as well as a person’s inability to conduct many tasks necessary in the running of a household such as financial planning, balancing checkbooks and credit cards, and may also include instances of people being habitually late, lost or unable to locate objects among other factors. Researchers in special education feel that the disability of dyscalculia is not being addressed in the educational systems because largely Americans are more accepting of being mathematically deficient but find that being deficient in reading and writing is not socially acceptable.

  • 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).

There was a time when students had to rely upon the traditional - and archaic - educational methods of attending class, abiding by the pre-established schedules of instructors, following a curriculum upon which they had little time to focus, as well as rearranging their lives to accommodate their schooling.

Indeed, it is impossible to overlook the many benefits inherent to such programs as distance learning, video conferencing, interactive multimedia, knowledge-based systems and the Internet as they relate to education.

The extent to which issues such as scholastic difficulty and low self-esteem are a constant presence in the life of an ADHD adolescent are both grand and far-reaching; that specially modified approaches to learning must be approached in order to reach the ADHD adolescent speaks to the shattering of old-school mentality claiming these young adults simply cannot be reached.
