In the bright time of the morning, the first bell of the school day rings. Students have a regimented schedule to follow for their classes and assignments. Some wonder if the timely rules are too stringent for children and teens. The topic is debatable depending on which side of the School yard fence you are on. In reviewing history and outcomes, we can see a pattern of cause and effect. […]
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve come to appreciate how interesting history can be, I think many people feel the same, having taken little to no interest in the subject at school. In fact, I remember it being one of the most boring lessons going, each session was a chore, an endless list of dates and names that I was sure to forget. Except for Henry VIII, one more year studying […]
The Memory game had us pointed in the right direction from a young age. In an apples to apples order, the facedown cards were teaching us an important aspect we would need the rest of our lives. For some lucky Students, they see it or hear it once and have the fact fossilized in their Memory. Others have to use a great deal of effort to learn and remember specific […]
Many kids will tell you their favorite school subjects are Gym and Lunch. As parents, we may remember the scooter and relay races that gave us a chance to stretch our legs and put the pencils down. In effort to reduce cost and make room on the schedule, schools have reduced the requirements for Gym classes. This has led some division in opinion among Educators, parents and students. The growth […]
The rules in schools have changed drastically over the past one hundred years. Cities and towns have become well populated leading to a growth of the educational system. The saying “ the more the merrier” may not apply in this situation. With the rising numbers of students and the decline of societal standing, there is a perceived gap within the rules we see today.
Past School Rules
The days of ringing the […]
School clubs and programs are optional groups that hold a specific center of interest. They may not be directly linked with grade cards, however the valuable lessons that are learned are worthy of the honor roll. There are several benefits for students who participate in activities that highlight their interests. Programs with intellectual focuses and athletic endeavors are more than a pastime or hobby.
The agenda of each group is geared […]
Literature is a member of the general course line up in most educational systems. In the classroom, inclusive forms of writing are viewed, studied and discussed. This helps students become familiar with diverse writing techniques and applications. Popular writing categories to visit a Literature schedule include:
Each classification holds a myriad of styles and works. Specific titles are used to generate assignments such as reports or presentations that will show the […]
Keeping young adults interested in a particular topic can be quite a challenge. When it comes to teaching teens, the term “goes in one ear and out the other” may come to mind. Students have the desire to learn, however they sometimes lack the attention span or interest in a specific subject. In effort to keep them invested in their studies, a hands on approach has become more prevalent in […]
Busy days keep many of us going on an around the clock schedule. School, work or at home obligations leave little room for the smaller details in our life. In fact, at least thirty percent of our time is spent on auto pilot. We no longer think about the small actions we make when we enter a room, or even take an aspirin. It is easy to forget that Science […]
Albert Einstein once stated, “Pure mathematics, is in its way the poetry of logical ideas”. For anyone who has tried to configure calculus in their life, math may not seem as eloquent as Einstein had thought. Algebraic equations and Quantum Mechanics are dynamically complex theories.
Math in its basic form to intricate calculations have been the very foundation of some of our greatest inventions and discoveries. Scientific theories, Technology and Time […]
