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…...

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. A student cannot learn much in Physics if he does not develop good study habits as well as his attitudes and use towards studying. The role and study of Physics in our country is very vital in order to achieve better changes. Teaching of Physics as a subject its relationship that would enable them to apply and control the things. Good......

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 ......

...Defining the issue Aboriginal families all across Canada were affected by the residential school system. The two main objectives of residential schools were to remove and isolate indigenous children from their families and cultures and to assimilate them into the Western cultures. From the mid-1800s to the mid-1900s it was mandatory that Aboriginal children went to residential schools by the federal government, to try to make them more like “children in mainstream society” (Kevin, Beeds, and Filion 340). Aboriginal values were looked down upon. Schools were operated by a staff that consisted of nuns and priests. They focused on teaching children Christianity. This event was significant in Canadian history because it represented the loss of culture, language, and family connection due to long separations and the hardships faced at school. The experience at residential schools continue to affect generations of Aboriginals still to this day. History of the Issue Prior to the Canadian government’s involvement in the education of Aboriginal children, traditional education effectively sustained Aboriginal cultures for decades of years (340). Early in the 1600s French missionaries came to North America to convert Aboriginals to Christianity (340). They established mission schools in New France. By the 1800s the government focused on educating First Nations children in a way to indirectly assimilate them into Canadian society (340). In 1879, Prime Minister John A. Macdonald......

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......
