"How can you alter your style of teaching to meet the demands of practice and competitive situations for individual, racket and team activities?" There are various styles of teaching suited to different situations and types of teacher. Considered factors should be age of the learner, experience and reasons for participation. This researched by Mosston and Ashworth. They believe that teaching and learning involve decisions about what is taught, what's learned, how and when. This is through the spectrum of teaching styles. Style: Teacher Control Command Practice Reciprocal Self-check Inclusion Guided Discovery Problem Solving Individual programme Learner Initiated Self teaching Learner Control At one end's the teacher style, the opposite being pupil centred. The spectrum looks at options in the relationship between teacher and learner. It's based on decision making which Mosston believed could be grouped into 3 areas: . Pre-Impact- concerned with decisions made before and teaching is given 2. Impact- involves decisions about our performance and how we carry out the performance 3. Post-Impact - evaluation of our performance and feedback from the learner to the teacher. Command style enables the teacher to make all decisions, adopting an authoritarian approach. I'd use this style with a large group or with dangerous activities to maintain control. Also if
"How has student life at Lancaster University changed since the 1970's?"
I have decided to address the question: "How has student life at Lancaster University changed since the 1970's?" If I were to answer this question, I would want to compare the life of students at Lancaster University in the 1970's, just after the university was built, to the life that students now lead, in 2003. In order to do this, I would first need to decide what issues I want to consider, as the question is very broad, and may cover an extensive range of topics. Perhaps I would look at how many people attended the University in the 1970's and onwards, and if the number has changed dramatically in thirty years. I could also consider the gender divisions, and the number of international students; how these numbers have changed over a period of time, and how this has affected student lives. I could also converge on activities carried out by the students such as sporting activities, societies and clubs, and nightlife entertainment typically carried out by students. It would perhaps also be relevant to focus on the amount of money students have, or did have, and if the recent development of student loans has vastly changed the pattern of student life at Lancaster. There are numerous types of recent and historical evidence that I could obtain, in answering the proposed question. It would be interesting to look at the number of students at the university, and how this has
"How Will the Honor Code Impact My Academic and Campus Life?"
"How Will the Honor Code Impact My Academic and Campus Life?" Honesty, respect, accountability, these are all the words that the honor code stands by. The honor code is a foundation on which academic integrity abides, and a line drawn between what's right and wrong. As an Xaverite, the honor code means more than just a statement to me, it is a living entity, a guideline that the University vows by, and those that break the code have to meet the consequences. During my four years at Xavier, I plan on striving for leadership and academic excellence by incorporating the ideas of the honor code into my daily life. I realize that the honor code will be fundamental to my life, both during and after college. Academic knowledge is the basis on which future prosperity and financial security have been determined. Now while some students sink to obtain good grades by cheating, I feel that this is just morally wrong. Cheating will not help a person get far in life; it will only harm a student at the end and keep them from achieving their potential. Not only can cheating take a devastating toll on a student's future, but their social life as well. The opportunity to work so little and achieve excellent grades is staring all students in the face, however cheating places a student at great risks for ruining the rest of his/her life. Personally, I'm not trying to gamble with my
"In The Park" by Gwen Harwood
Title: Confronting Reality "In the Park" Original Sonnet: Gwen Harwood - "In the Park": She sits in the park. Her clothes are out of date. Two children whine and bicker, tug her skirt. A third draws aimless patterns in the dirt Someone she loved once passed by - too late to feign indifference to that casual nod. "How nice" et cetera. "Time holds great surprises." From his neat head unquestionably rises a small balloon..."but for the grace of God..." They stand a while in flickering light, rehearsing the children's names and birthdays. "It's so sweet to hear their chatter, watch them grow and thrive, " she says to his departing smile. Then, nursing the youngest child, sits staring at her feet. To the wind she says, "They have eaten me alive." . Paraphrase: A woman sits in the park with her three children playing around her. She is not well dressed and feels a bit outdated. An ex-lover walking in the park stops to converse with her, being critical that her life is now burdened with children. The woman still feels love and affection for this man, and can read his thoughts about her disposition. They chat about the children, names and birthdays, and she pretends she is happy. When her ex-lover leaves she feels disappointment that she is not with him. Staring at her feet, she realizes she has been put into a life with abundant responsibilities of motherhood and
"Interpretive sociology has suggested that pupil's progress at school is the outcome of processes of interaction between pupils and teachers".
"Interpretive sociology has suggested that pupil's progress at school is the outcome of processes of interaction between pupils and teachers" Education provision can vary and influence. Schools vary in the quality of staff and the behaviour of pupil's. Children are influenced by good schools which depend on teacher's qualities. However, most of the studies which focus on the school tend to be interactionist, the relationship between teachers and pupils and there are many theories. Interactionist studies tend to focus on what teacher's do to pupil's and may underestimate there ability. The teacher's attitudes play a part in working class children underachieving. The 'Hidden Curriculum' is everything in school apart from the formal exams and curriculum. It is everything that is learnt but not taught like teacher's attitudes, streaming, pupils' attitudes, uniform, out of school activities, this is a main factor between the relationship of teacher's and pupil's. Therefore the teacher's attitudes play a part, why some children are underachieving at school. Hargreaves et al. did research in to teacher's attitudes in the hidden curriculum. He found that teacher's labelled pupil's into stereotypical groups. He found they followed criteria of labelling that covered seven areas: appearance, conform to discipline, ability and enthusiasm for work, how likeable they are the
I carried out a questionnaire of which I gave to 20 students attending a mixed and, a single sex school. They all showed various views on the status of their school and the education that they receive
Primary Analysis: For my primary research, I carried out a questionnaire of which I gave to 20 students attending a mixed and, a single sex school. They all showed various views on the status of their school and the education that they receive. I've researched from questionnaire's and interviews that overall girls at a single sex school tend to spend longer hours on their homework, they take up more extra curriculum activities, and these are on of the factors which, affect level of achievement. Another comparison I have made that supports my hypothesis is that the girls attending single sex school have said that the education they have received is very good and excellent, not one has said it was poor. On the other hand the results from a mixed school have said the education they received is satisfactory, but could be better. The reason why is because of distractions in class. "Boys tend to try to take over the lesson, make jokes of the teacher, they think it's funny, however, it's wasting precious time" Girl Aged 16. Furthermore, the majority of girls that attended a mixed school would have preferred to go to a single sex school, when I asked why. They replied "I would've concentrated more at a single sex school." "You feel undermined in certain subjects and lesson by boys, who think their better at it". Besides this, not all students agreed on single sex schools being
Process analysis of becoming a poor student.
Process analysis of becoming a poor student Being a poor student doesn't take much skill at all; in fact it takes no skill. With so many things going on in a student's head such as, how am I going to pay for books, am I going to get the classes I need, and what am I going to wear to class; becoming and remaining that perfect student relatively seems impossible. The fact of the matter is; with all these emotions running through a students head its hard to focus on the real reason why we go to school, potentially to succeed in the world, to get a good job, to go ahead and build a life for ourselves as well as enriching our lives with life experiences. With that in mind, according to some, just the matter of waking up and making it to class on time can be an arduous task in itself. Habits come and go but for a poor student these habits die slow, such as procrastination, laziness, shyness, chewing gun, bad note taking, poor attendance, etc. We all know someone who epitomizes some of these characteristics. Such as cramming for a test the night before, or going over you're excruciating 100 page notes, to inevitably fail in the end. For those of you, who find yourself immersed in this habitual routine, and would like to break free of these chains; please feel free to read on. Well those days are no longer. An apt student must ask ones self; are you sick and tired of being the A+

"Ars Poetica" by Archibald MacLeish
"Ars Poetica" by Archibald MacLeish . There are many definitions to the definition of poetry. The definition that I finally selected because it defined what poetry means to me was by Mark Flanagan: "Poetry is an imaginative awareness of experience expressed through meaning, sound, and rhythmic language choices so as to evoke an emotional response. Poetry has been known to employ meter and rhyme, but this is by no means necessary. Poetry is an ancient form that has gone through numerous and drastic reinvention over time. The very nature of poetry as an authentic and individual mode of expression makes it nearly impossible to define." Poetry has had a past history with an ancient form that is not "hip hop" today. Not all poetry has to have rhyme, but it can often help a poem to flourish. The words in a poem are trying to give a sense or feeling to them, no matter what form is used. 2. A poem to me is a short story put in a few lines. I expect to use my imagination and my brain to understand and interpret the meaning that the poet is trying to express with the use of imagery, metaphors, and similes. Whether or not, there is rhyme and rhythm, this would not influence my acceptance and enjoyment of a poem. I do enjoy reading and writing poetry (which gives me a chance to express my emotions). 3. "Ars Poetica" written by Archibald MacLeish is an Ars Poetica poem. It consists
"Bad grades equals bad parents". Discuss this statement with reference to your own personal experience.
"Bad grades equals bad parents". Discuss this statement with reference to your own personal experience. In my opinion, in most cases, bad grades do not mean bad parents. Examinations and studying is something which is done by the students themselves and not by their parents. Students are assessed on their abilities and not on the abilities of their parents. However, if parents do not take interest in their child's scholastic life there could be some sort of effect on their child's grades in the examination. In the very early stages of my school life, my parents (especially my mother) where important in helping me studying and organising myself. They also helped me learn things that I had to know by heart. However in the secondary school, certain things could not be learned by heart and I had to learn how to study on my own without the help of anyone else. I rarely asked my parents for any help, and if I had a difficulty, I used to ask my sister but not my parents. The role of the parents diminished drastically as years went by. In fact my parents did not effect the results of my O-Levels whatsoever. However, if parents' do not take interest in the studies of their children there can be some negative consequences. This might result in students' lacking interest in their studies. If they are not provided with the necessary material such as books and stationery by
