Nagbago ang pananaw ko sa buhay noong 4th year high school na ako at handa na akong harapin ang hamon sa akin ng buhay. Binabalak ko na hindi na pumasok ng kolehiyo kahit na alam ko na may sapat naman kaming pera para matustusan ang aking pag-aaral. Nagbago ang lahat ng makita ko ang dati kong kaibigan, si kuya Eman. Magaling siya, matalino at napakabait. Tinanong ko siya kung bakit pagala-gala lamang siya sa kalye gayong dapat ay nag-aaral sya. Isang malungkot na ekspresyon ang naging sagot niya sa akin. Binigyan niya ako ng payo na mag-aral ako at tumuloy ako sa kolehiyo dahil ito lamang ang tanging magiging panlaban ko sa buhay at ito rin ang unang pundasyon ko upang makatayo ako sa sarili kong mga paa. Napaka swerte ko daw sapagkat nariyan pa ang mga magulang ko upang sumuporta sa akin.

...Cuisenaire rods are great for measurement but will also help students with learning multiplication. Multiplication can sometimes be hard for students and rather frustrating so this is another lesson where it can be taught hands on. One way that a teacher can teach this lesson is with a ruler and the Cuisenaire rods numbered with the smallest rod having number one and the largest rod with number ten. If you want your students to solve four times nine then they will use four of the number nine colors and nine number four colors to help them solve this problem. You can also still have the rods numbered and teach the students to solve without the ruler and allow them to work with a partner. For example you can have the problem 3 x 5 = 5 + 5 + 5 or 5 x 3 = 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3. They have to remember to use three of the number five rods. Another way to teach this or rather review this is by having a worksheet that has a ruler on it with twenty problems to solve. In conclusion Cuisenaire rods are really great tools with teaching math. Using the rods to teach fractions will help students spark an interest in fractions and to help them not to get so frustrated with fractions and give up. Using the rods to teach measurement can be done with so many activities that the students may even forget that they are doing a class assignment because depending on the way you use the rods it becomes a game and it no longer feels like learning. Using the Cuisenaire rods to teach multiplication is......

Educ 406/Hrmt 406 Athasasca University

...Assignment One (1) Athabasca University: EDUC 406/HRMT 406 1. ‘Why is consideration of the social and economic context necessary for understanding work and learning in Canada?’ Keeping in mind education, work, learning and training do not occur in a manner that they are void from the rest of the world; they are all influenced by variables within the social and economic situations in which they occur. For example, in order for to work be effective in a diverse, equitable community or culture in places such as in Canada, you must fully comprehend and know if is necessary to understand the variety of cultures, back rounds, and ethnicities that are present. The expectation would be unrealistic to place a group of people whom have different ethnic backgrounds, values, ethics, and perspectives to work in a team environment and expect no conflict, difference of opinions, or situations that did not have them working in a harmonious as a cohesive team. This being said, and considering ones surroundings where work and learning are priority and take place, is all the more prudent for future stability, growth and fulfillment. Furthermore, work and learning can generally be swayed by many social and economic circumstances where more detailed comprehensive policies, practices and procedures are developed and implemented. This being noted means that the more precise and detailed Human Resources management perceptions, perspectives and norms would have been influenced by the rise of...

...of the child. Child sets a number of beliefs, children are given more real liberty and less power, children are first taught to confine their wishes within the limits of their powers and children learns that everything is not in their power (Morrish, 1967). Stage 2: Boyhood (from two to ten or twelve): This is 'the age of Nature'. During this time, the child receives only a 'negative education': no moral instruction, no verbal learning. He sets out the most important rule of education that is freedom and happiness. The mind should be left undisturbed till its faculties have developed'. The purpose of education at this stage is to develop physical qualities and particularly senses, but not minds (Morrish, 1967). Stage 3: Early-adolescence (12-15). Emile in Stage 3 is like the 'noble savage' who learns through direct experience in different practical activities connected with the child’s interest and needs. Rousseau describes it as a pre-social stage. 'About twelve or thirteen the child's strength increases far more rapidly than his needs'. The urge for activity now takes a mental form; there is greater capacity for sustained attention. The educator or the teacher has to respond accordingly (Morrish, 1967). Stage 4: Adolescence (15-20). The adult Emile is introduced to the society. There will e more stress on social studies, history, politics, the problems of the government so that a person may become intelligent and effective citizen. At this stage the Emile inner light is......

...As we are wrapping up this semester, our reading has turned to the e-booklet that prepares us for the RVE Praxis test. I have not taken this test yet, but am scheduled to take it in a few weeks, so this reading was very beneficial for me. The e-booklet looks to be a great study guide because it details all of the information that you need to know in order to pass the test. The e-booklet also gives you a set of practice questions that help to prepare you for the exam. I also really appreciate the study plan that is included. The e-booklet also include a detailed description of the test format and how the questions should be answered. As we get to chapter ten, the Tompkins text begins to wrap up what we have been learning about teaching reading. Organizing and planning what type of program we will use to teach reading becomes very important. Chapter eleven also discusses the importance of differentiating your reading instruction to meet the needs of all of your students (Tompkins, 2014). Based on the information in the e-booklet about the types of questions on the test, it is evident that if we study the Tompkins text as well as the other material that has been made available to us, we should have success on this Praxis test. My personal experience with taking Praxis tests is that the study guides that ETS provides are invaluable as well as the practice tests that you can purchase. The textbooks used in Liberty’s programs are also a great help. The most......
