Character Analysis Paper
In summarizing the movie Akeelah and the Bee this writer will begin with a description of the leading character Akeelah Anderson. Akeelah is an eleven-year-old seventh grade African-American female living in the inner city. Her educational background revealed she was promoted to a higher level in the second grade. This caused her to be a young middle school student. She is the youngest child of four children. Her father was murdered which caused her to be the product of a single family home. She attended a school that appeared to be aged and had a history of low academic achievement. She was invited to participate in her schools spelling bee where she became the winner for the school. This movie was a depiction of her journey to a national title.
While Akeelah demonstrated many gifted characteristics. Research indicates that culturally different learner’s score on average lower than middle-class students on standardize intelligence tests. This may have been the case for Akeelah. According to Frasier & Garcia, (1995) test bias, selective referrals and reliance on deficit-based paradigms cause underrepresentation and identification of minority students in gifted programs. These children are not easily identified and remain invisible (Davis, Rimm, & Siegle, 2011, p. 328). Current research also reflects concerns over recruiting and maintaining minority students in gifted education programs (Ford, 1998, p. 4). These concerns of identification call for the use of a multidimensional approach when identifying these individuals.
However, this character had a teacher who was knowledgeable of gifted traits. She exhibited the ability to recognize the strengths of a student who is…...

Factors Influencing Studt Habits of Beed Students

...Skills teachers need to create an effective board display could include: * Creativity. Instructional content can be dry and boring in a classroom setting. Creative teachers try to present concepts and content in an interesting way. * Visual skills. Teachers are somewhat like interior designers; they must be able to visualize the presentation and impact they want to create, then apply those to the display. * Organizational skills. This goes along with #2, but organization includes comparing and contrasting, grouping, and arranging content in a meaningful way. * Communication. Teachers know that words combined with visual content can often communicate more than words alone. As well, the teacher must be a good communicator. * Minimalistic views. Good teachers know they must minimize content to the basic building blocks they want to teach. Rather than a display aimed at students who understand the most, the best, or the easiest, the display would be geared to include students who understand the least, the poorest, and the hardest. * Lastly, good teachers make visual displays part of the lesson plan. Displays or decorated bulletin boards are not just to make the room pretty. A good teacher can use one display to help students build many different skills. I personally love this bulletin board for the classroom. Not only is the quote inspirational for the children but it can also be incorporated into Science (the solar system). As a class you can make the...

Students Attitude Towards Science in Relation to Their Academic Performance Among Grade Six Pupils of Bayawa Elementary School

...Introduction      This situation prompted the researcher to conduct a study on students’ attitude towards science and health in relation to their academic performance in an identified school. In today’s world, science encompasses many ways of gaining information which helps individuals know themselves and their environment better and develop and renew this information frequently. Teaching science and technology to individuals help them to learn how adopt and adapt an inclination which forces them to think objectively and make the right decision confronting different events and situations. This inclination provides a comfortable life for them as well as for their family and their environment (Akgun, 2001). If students learn science using a scientific procedure and skill they would be able to use these procedures and skills in their daily life. In this procedure, while students’ attitudes towards science increase, they develop their creativity skills. During the primary educational period, courses on science and technology achieve a great importance comparing to the other courses since these courses teach students the environment, natural events and scientific developments as well as critical thinking and problem solving. (Kaptan, 1999) An attitude is an inclination to gaining a skill and is identified as an individual characteristic that provide a background for accepting a positive subject or denying a negative one. Thus, by improving a positive attitude among students......

Study Habbits of Beed-Gc

...THEORITICAL FRAMEWORK One of the problems that beset our educational system is poor study habit. Several studies found this problem challenging and therefore, efforts have to be exerted in order to determine the root cause. According to Lass and Wilson (1965), student fails not because they do not have intelligence to understand why they are studying, not because their lessons are too difficult for them, but because they do not know how to study or understand what study means. Students’ failure in his academic subjects may not be to lack of intellectual capacity, but perhaps it may be due to negative attitude toward school or toward study or his not being able to posses good and efficient study habits. For the attainment of our goal to strengthen the declining Philippine education, knowledge of general conditions of study habits to those who take active part in the study habits formation of the child is very significant because excellent education can only be achieved through effective study habits NTRODUCTION Physics is considered as one of the most difficult and mathematically rigorous of the sciences as a subject in high school.

Factors Affecting the Reading Skills of the Third Year Beed- Students in Csu-Cse

...CHAPTER 1 The Problem Introduction The word “language” seems to have been derived from the Latin words, “Lingua,” which implies “tongue “. The French term,” language” also refers to a specific from of speech .Hence, in the whole process of language teaching, spoken language occupies an important place. Ballard says,” talking comes before writing, oral composition before written composition.(Dash, 2004, p.165-166) Speaking is the productive skill in the oral mode. It, like the other skills, is more complicated than it seems at first and involves more than just pronouncing words Josh Billings says“Silence is one of the hardest arguments to refute”. Learning English as one's second language is not unusual in most places of the world. But learning English as one's second language and mastering it thoroughly is a distinguished achievement. By mastering, I mean that one is able to read, write and communicate unambiguously and effectively. In this case, only a few has accomplished due to many problems such as unavailability of native-English instructors in a country, a totally different language structure used at home and a limited amount of time studying English. The main reason why theFilipinos are employed abroad is their ability to speak and understand Englishand so when all countries in the world struggle to learn English (Rama 2000) We ,Filipinosshould not unlearn it. English is a global language and in...

A complete picture of student achievement in an area of learning depends on evidence that is sampled from the full range of knowledge, skills and understandings that make up the area of learning. An assessment program that consistently addresses only some outcomes will provide incomplete feedback to the teacher and student, and can potentially distort teaching and learning. 8.

Environmental Concern

...Cristie Karla Santos January 28, 2016 BEEd 2-1N Prof. Sarah Balana When I was a gradeschooler, a child, I'm always thinking and wondering what animals would I want. And then I wish that if I will be an animal, I like to be a bird. I want to fly whenever and wherever I want. I want to travel as much as I can. The movie "Rio 2" is one of the great movie that is surely connected in Ecology. It was my first time to watch this movie because I didn't know that this movie can teach us a lesson and I'm thinking that this is just for a kid. When I watched it, I realize that the life of a bird is not that easy. In this movie, I knew what life does the birds have and how does their lives flow. In the otherhand, I saw the colorful life of the birds. Their happiness and how they compete with each other or with other group of birds. For me, one of my favorite part is when they have a soccer game using a nut. It was very exciting even though they the blue birds, where the main characters belong, lose. Rio 2 is not just a simple movie. Not just for kids. This movie have some ecological problems that our country has. One of the major ecological problem is the common of it, the illegal logging. In the movie, we all saw how the men cutting the trees illegaly even though they know that it is not good for the environment. The other one is very connected in the illegal logging which is the loss of the......
