"Is Home Learning better than School?"
"Is Home Learning better than School?" "Ladies of the house, Judge and ladies of the court I would like to introduce the argument of 'Is Home learning better than School? I introduce you to Emily and Isabelle first, who are going to talk about 'Home Learning'. They will say both the advantages and the disadvantages. Then India and Mimi are will speak about School and their good advantages and their disadvantages." "Thank you. Both Emily and I are going to talk to you about 'Home Learning.' We will first say the advantages, then the disadvantages and then we shall conclude to you about are little argument. There are many advantages about 'Home Learning'. With home learning it is one-to-one teaching. So you get more attention and most likely to learn more. This one-to-one teaching is quite a good technique to try and make a child concentrate more. We got that piece of information from a governor of the 'Royal, Teaching, With Robots, Association.' When you are at home, learning, there is nobody with you except a computer, so bullying does not exist there. Lots of children are home-schooled due to serious causes of bullying. Bullying is a serious matter than can change a child's life without anyone realising it. Fortunately another good point about 'Home Learning' is that the mechanical teachers are impartial. Unlike at school where sometimes normal, human teachers can be
"Language lies at the root of that transformation of the environment that we call civilization." How is language encouraged in Montessori prepared environment?
"Language lies at the root of that transformation of the environment that we call civilization." How is language encouraged in Montessori prepared environment? Language is the ability to understand speech and a desire to convey one's feelings and thoughts. The learning of language is truly the child's most remarkable intellectual achievement, and is amazingly accomplished rapidly in a very short time span. "By merely living and without any conscious effort the individual absorbs from the environment even a complex cultural like language." (The Essential Montessori, pg. 81). Since the child builds himself from what is around him, the environment becomes an important factor. The environment must be prepared, aiding in the process of language development and supporting the child's expanding consciousness. A child will pass through the Sensitive Period of language. During this period, the child will explore his surroundings with tongue and hand, and through these, the child absorbs the qualities of the objects in his environment and seeks to act upon it. He wants to know the name of every object that he sees and touches, and mimic words said by the adults around him. Montessori concluded that the tongue, which man uses for speaking and the hand, which he employs for work, are intimately connected. She pointed out that during the Sensitive Period of language, the child must
Snowdrops by Leslie Norris.
Snowdrops by Leslie Norris In Snowdrops, the author, Leslie Norris, present a child's of the world around him and the way that adults can protect children from sad and upsetting experiences. The story appears to be about a boy and his day at primary school. His teacher, Miss Webster promised the class that they could all go outside and look at the Snowdrops. Whilst they are looking, a funeral procession passes the school, one which the boy's parents were discussing - the tragic death of a motorcyclist. The author refers indirectly by using hints and clues to the fact that the motorcyclist was in love with the boy's teacher. The boy learns that his teacher is, along with the Snowdrops, not what they are made out to be. He has great expectations of the Snowdrops however, when he does see them he realises that they are not anything special. He notices that Miss Webster appears to be hard on the outside, however, soft in the middle - appearing to be tough to every one else but revealing that she really does have feelings. We know this because the boy notices how brave Miss Webster was when she trapped her hand in the cupboard door - he is amazed that she did not cry. He then notices that at her boyfriend's funeral procession that she was very brave yet again. The author uses child like language to shape the story and its meaning: For example, when the boy was describing
This assignment will discuss and critically analyse maternal welfare, observing the effects of alcohol on the growing fetus.
This assignment will discuss and critically analyse maternal welfare, observing the effects of alcohol on the growing fetus. Firstly, the issue will be to identify ways in which consumption of alcohol affects pre and postnatal conception. Barnes and Bradley (1990) assert consumption of alcohol during pregnancy may have serious consequences for the fetus. Furthermore, the importance of current health initiatives relating to fetal alcohol syndrome will be addressed, including preventable measures. Barnes and Bradley (1990) emphasise alcohol travels through the blood stream to affect the sperm, egg and fetus. Professor Kaufman 1988 (in Barnes and Bradley 1991,p.98) suggests "no alcohol in the preconception preparation stage for both partners", and during pregnancy for the women. Similarly, Stroebe (2000) stipulate women should not drink alcohol for the duration of pregnancy because of the risk of birth defects termed fetal alcohol syndrome. Moreover, Beattie 1981 (in Williams and Booth 1985, p75) highlight social and constant heavy drinking especially in the first trimester of pregnancy can damage the normal growth of the fetus. In support of this Zieman (2004) assert drinking during the first trimester is the most serious, and babies exposed to alcohol at this most crucial time often have small brains and physical problems, what's more these babies can develop severe learning
What are the rights and responsibilities of a family member?
2) What are the rights and responsibilities of a family member? Every organization has rights and responsibilities in the world today. The family is no exception, for every member of the family have rights and responsibilities. Many people think of privileges, as being rights but there is a difference between the two. To truly understand the difference we must know the definition of the word 'right'. A right is 'something to which one has just or lawful claim', so you see it is not a privilege. A responsibility, unlike a right, is 'something for which one is responsible.' It is the duty of every individual of a family to carry out all of his responsibilities. The most important responsibility of the parent is to provide four of the five essential needs of life, i.e.: warmth, shelter, food and water. After a child is born the parent of the child has to for that child a safe environment and comfortable living conditions. A husband has the right to a wife, someone to share his troubles with, someone to give him support and companionship. Together he and his wife can achieve goals knowing that the other is there to cheer them on. A married couple has the right to give each other love and respect. This may mean making sacrifices for the sake of their spouse's happiness. Parents have the right to resolve conflicts through communication and respect not using this right can
"An investigation of legislation, services and provision involved in a selected case study".
"An investigation of legislation, services and provision involved in a selected case study" Case study three raises many issues including neglect, short-term foster care, long term depressive illness, siblings, separation from them, and ethnicity. I will also be looking into social services and the rights of the father. I will be discussing the legislation, services and provisions relating to the case study. Foster care is a main issue in the case study, more specifically short-term foster care. Local authorities, voluntary and independent agencies that are providing foster care should use the national Standards to audit their service. A statement of values and principles which complies with the UN Convention on the Rights of the child and UK child care legislation informs the National Standards. The key objectives of the National Standards are to give the children better outcomes in life that is cared for outside of there home. To underpin the provision of good quality foster care for the children. Also the foster carers will be assessed to ensure that the standard of services are being met and to devise strategies to improve services in any area that is not of a good standard. From 2001 police checks on people over the age of ten will take place in foster care. http://www.epolitix.com/Data/Companies/000000001A447390AA6611CD9BC800AA00'.... Sam is in short-term foster
"Children are entitled to be provided with an appropriate curriculum" - discuss.
"Children are entitled to be provided with an appropriate curriculum" Curricula are courses of study. To be effective they need to be appropriate for the children they are targeted at. This means specifying what and how the children are to be taught. The children have an entitlement to be educated using appropriate curricula, not only on ethical grounds but also by legislation and recommendations both nationally and locally. The foundation stage curriculum begins when a child reaches the age of three and finishes at the end of the reception year. It must provide an effective learning environment, particularly for those children who need support. It requires careful structuring with adults playing a crucial role in the organisation. Communication with adults and activities that stimulate the child's mind lay a foundation for the child's development in oral language, literacy and numeracy. A rights and legislation approach means that children are entitled to freedom of association, provided it does not deny their entitlement to protection from hostile influences. This allows them to interact in different relationships safely. Effective education requires practitioners who are able to supply the curriculum requirements. Children are entitled to provisions that support their knowledge, understanding, skills and confidence. The right to play in a stimulating environment is part

"Day Care jeopardizes the development of children". Use your text books for arguments for and against! Day care and social development Social development refers to the development of the child's relationships with other people. It is concerned with the process by which the child becomes a part of the wider society while, at the same time, becomes a separate and distinct individual. This involves learning and acting in terms of the norms - the accepted ways of behaving - which operate in the wider society, and also learning to become a relatively independent person. Psychologists tend to have the following picture of the socially well-adjusted child. This child gets on with other people and stands on their own two feet. In other words, they have developed relationship skills and a certain level of independence. A large body of research, mainly from the USA, has been concerned with how day care affects children's social development. To some extent the findings are contradictory. Some studies indicate that day care has positive effects on social development. Children who appear to be more independent and self-sufficient, they cope better with new situations, they are more popular with their peers (children of the same age), they are more cooperative and helpful both with other children and the parents. In general, their social skills and their knowledge of the wider
"Does every child have the right to life, discuss with reference to Christian ethics".
"Does every child have the right to life, discuss with reference to Christian ethics" Jared Ching At the present legislators and scientists are having a preference for the "pro-life" position. However, what does the Bible say about the beginning of life? When does life begin? At birth or at conception? Politicians, scientists, pro-life forces all agree that the answer to the abortion question hinges on this distinction. Politicians are now introducing legislation to define life as beginning at conception. It is a good piece of legislation and should go far toward protecting the life of an unborn. Yet can a Christian rest his beliefs on such legislation? In the past, governing bodies in the United States have passed not only dangerous but humorous legislation at times. For example, in the Pine Island District of Minnesota, a man must tip his hat when passing a cow. ?? The California penal code prohibits the shooting of any animal, except a whale, from an automobile. The list of ridiculous is nearly endless. Thus we cannot assume that legislators are right or put a great deal of thought into their aims. However, scientists now confirm that the fetus is a living human being. Fetologists argue that shortly after conception a fetus is a separate, treatable patient from the mother. It is true that science is now confirming opinions many Christians have held for a long time. But
The representation of Islands in Peter Pan and Return of the Soldier
The representation of Islands in Peter Pan and Return of the Soldier Peter Pan and Return of the Soldier can easily be seen as very different novels but there can be many important comparisons made. Although they were written closely together, Peter Pan in 1911 and Return of the Soldier in 1918, they have very different subject matters and seem to be intended for audiences of a different age. The style and narration of Peter Pan shows it to be a children's novel, with humorous quotes and exciting adventures while Return of the Solider has a much darker tone, typical to war literature at the time. Islands are used in both novels to represent themes of death and innocence as well as placing their narrators on the outside of events. In Peter Pan this idea is used to present the character of Peter as avoiding the responsibilities and feelings of adulthood through his escape to a separated world of childhood. Similarly, in Return of the Soldier, it is used to show the sadness and despair felt by Chris, and so supporting his replacement of the lost child through a return to innocence in himself. Childhood and repression are major themes in both novels and the authors use characters to portray ideas of loss and grief within the story. In Peter Pan, Peter is used to represent the eternal child, never growing older and always remaining the same, but read deeper, he could symbolise
