· Practice Connect versus Convince. Teachers need to connect the information learned to the students and the real world verses convincing them this is what they believe in. This is useful when working with students who have behavior issues. Getting the student to understand what their behavior is and having them choice the decision to change is going to have a better effect on the student.
· Create Individualize Learning Plans for each student describing where they wish to be at with their behavior. Revisit any time the student is struggling with making appropriate behavior decisions. Discuss creating a behavior contract with the student if the negative behavior continues. (behavior challenged students)

Five States' Voter-Driven Initiatives/Laws Relating to Englis

...Before I can start to write about Equal Opportunity and Education I must first define Equal Opportunity. Equal Opportunity is a right supposedly guaranteed by both federal and many state laws against any discrimination in employment, education, housing or credit rights due to a person’s race, color, sex (or sometimes sexual orientation), religion, national origin, age or handicap. The United States has had a long and rough road to equal opportunity in education. During the colonial era, only boys from wealthy families were given the opportunity for a formal education, while girls from wealthy families were educated by governess. Wealthy planters home schooled their boys. During this era, girls were educated in the basic subjects of reading, writing, and arithmetic just enough for them to read and understand their Bible and take care of the household accounts. From the beginning of the nation through and just past the Civil War, white men were the predominant people for educational opportunity. Fewer women went to college, and those who did were talked into becoming nurses, teachers, artists, or other jobs considered at the time to be suitable for women. One must be reminded that during this time, the role of women in society was to raise children and attend to the household. Women who did not get married were persuaded into secretarial positions, nursing, or teaching. This was the view of women in this era. Minorities, such as African Americans and immigrants, were...

...Reflective Evaluation SPE-522 Lesa Kines Grand Canyon University Prof: Bryce Solberg December 19, 2012 Reflective Evaluation When reflecting back on what kind of a teacher I would be, I would combine demonstrator, facilitator and peer keeper in my daily lesson plan and classroom management. According to Schwartz all three demonstrators, facilitator and Peer Review, can be put into action in my daily routine. Demonstrator will allow me to demonstrate and the students watch attentively and to take part in an event or activity in the classroom. I am still the primary source of information but the students have an change to be more drawn in in the process. Facilitator focuses on activities in which the students are involved in an activity with somebody in the class of their choice or a group. This is more students centered with the students solving problems and making discoveries. The teacher encourages helps and guides the students towards their given task or goal. Peer keeper will allow me to my co-worker or administrators to observe what I do in the classroom an give me the positive and negative feedback that will help me improve my teaching skills and classroom management and my desire to be a good teacher. I believe that the only way that I can get there is to focus and...

...Language and Decoding It must be understood that words are broken up into smaller units of sounds called phonemes. Being able to pronounce and articulate phonemes is obviously essential. Further, having awareness that sounds can be manipulated, segmented and blended to create words in just as critical. This is both key to reading, writing, and spelling. When a kindergarten student ask you how to spell a particular word. The common answer is usually “sound it out”. In order for this method to work, one must be able to dissect a word into its finite parts in order to map each sound to the corresponding letter or letters. According to Roth, Paul & Pierotti, Children who perform well on sound awareness tasks become successful readers and writers, while children who struggle with such tasks often do not. (2006,par.2) Language and Vocabulary Teaching children to decode or sound out words is usually the starting point for reading instruction. Ultimately, readers have to understand what they are reading and writing. In order for them to fully comprehend the material, the student must have a significant repertoire of known words or vocabulary such as “site words”. Kindergarten vocabulary is primarily learned from the parents, friends or their community. Children who come from a proper English speaking homes have more of an advantage to learn up to three times as many words as a child from a non-proper English speaking home.

... schools use programs that were considered to be successful according to the research. The schools would further need to provide trained teachers and resources to implement this as well as to institute assessments that would assess the students progress in attaining English proficiency (Lecture, 2013). In 1998 SEI was implemented in California. Following this in 2000, an English-only initiative (Proposition 203) was proposed in Arizona. This came at the same time as a lawsuit (Flores v. Arizona) that alleged that there were not sufficient academic opportunities for the English language learner. These two ideas were combined. Now teachers, superintendents and administrators were required to obtain an SEI endorsement in Arizona (Lecture, 2013). In 2001 the No Child Left Behind Act (formally the Elementary and Secondary Education Act) was passed. This newly revised legislation omitted mention of bilingual education putting it on the schools to make sure that all students show evidence of academic achievement regardless of their language abilities (Lecture, 2013). This meant that schools would be responsible for bringing all students achievements up, even English Language Learners (Lecture, 2013). States differ in their approach and implementation of programs designed to support the English Language Learner. In California, Massachusetts and Arizona the English Immersion approach is the method of choice. They provide students with very limited instruction (if any at all...

... English. This has a lot more French and Latin influence than anything else. Here we are starting to be able to see more similarities with Modern English. A lot of names of things are different but there is a lot that are common too. Some words that are the same are for, trees, as, it, and there are quite a few more. We would still have a hard time reading it because there are still many words that differ from today’s spelling. Form the 16th century on is where they were using Modern English. This is what they speak today for the most part. In this era English is dropping it French and picking up a little more Latin. They are rearranging how they say things. Instead of, “Is thou hungry?” it moves to, “are you hungry”. They still talk different in Britain than we do here in the United States but we would be able to understand almost all of it. The Latin influence is still really strong in the medical field and scientific field. Latin groups things together by genre where English does not really do that. In Latin you can figure out what they are talking about even if you have never heard of what they are talking about if you have an understanding of Latin. When I was learning the Latin words I hated it but now it makes very good since. If we look at a word suck as gastroenteritis we can break it down and figure out what it is. Gastro is stomach, enter is entero which is small intestine, and itis means inflammation. So with that we know that......

The ELL teacher gives the results to the home teacher to include in the Personal Education Plan, (PEP), in which the common core curriculum and the English proficiency objectives are incorporated into each ELL student’s plan simultaneously through various scaffolding techniques and strategies. Next, the classroom teacher will include activities during small group sessions and during class instruction time to address issues with listening, speaking, reading and writing that prevents the English Language Learner from learning through various obstacles such as phonics, comprehension, and culture to help the ELL student relate to the subject and reinforce learning English proficiently.

Bilingual education is a method used to teach ELL students partly in their own language. The concept is that it will enhance their understanding of the curriculum and help them succeed in an English based classroom. The premise is that once the student is fairly competent in English they can progress in the classroom with their peers. Weather these programs are the best education method for ELL students this question has not been answered to address the issues concerning ELL students. The opponents of Bilingual Education believes that it is the ELL student right and need to make use of their native language to ease their transition into a English only education. The opponents also believe that the programs are hindering students’ ability to learn curriculum by keeping them in their native language too long. The Bilingual polices of today society are polices of the Bilingual Education Act of 1968 (Title VII). Congress passed the act as part of Civil Rights Title VI, which prohibits discrimination based on race, color, or natural origins in programs or activities in any program receiving federal finical assistant.

... of the terms inside the contract is drafted intentionally and non-negotiable. When things go wrong, it is important for the owner to be able to rely on their exclusion clauses. When these clauses are challenged it can cost the owners millions of ringgits. The purpose of the exclusion clause is for usages when suing for breach of contract should that happen in future. These clauses can be valid, as long as: • they have been properly included in the contract and • are not contrary to law. Exclusion clauses cannot be incorporated from unsigned documents or advertisement signs if those documents or signs are introduced after the contract have been created. 1c) Three ways in which an exclusion clause can be incorporated into an agreement with decided case laws. There are three ways in which an exclusion clause (or other contractual term) may be incorporated 1. By signature to a written contractual document 2. By notice 3. By course of dealing. 1. Incorporation by signature to a written contractual document The easiest way to incorporate an exclusion clause is to ensure that the other party signs the contract containing the exclusion clause. Where a term is incorporated into the contract, which is consequently signed by all parties involved, there is very little room for questioning whether incorporation into a contract has occurred. Incorporation b y signature has the benefit of certainty.   Providing the term is set out in the contract...

...The law relating to the Family Brandon D. Allen 2011 Family law is of crucial importance to every individual, whether adult or child. Family law that regulates interpersonal relationships. Family law provides the legal framework for the establishment of marriage, the dissolution of marriage, the legal consequences of marriage and cohabitation, civil partnerships and the legal regulation of domestic violence. Much of the family law nowadays is concerned with the law relating to children. The status of a child, its parentage, and the rights of the child, the child’s welfare and the powers of the state in relation to the child are all central concerns. Family law has a wide and diverse. Some topics will require considerable more time than others. For example, the formalities of marriage, although detailed and rather complex, it should require much less of your time than the law relating to divorce. Family law is a growing body of cases which deals with the incorporation into English law. Family law is one of those fields in which you simply cannot avoid talking about, its those things that are happening in the outside would, economic changes, political changes, the sexual revolution, and so on. (Oxford University Press, 2003). Family law seems to be everywhere today. Abortion remains a litmus rest for political allegiances. Single-sex marriage divides state voters. Child...

Rule 6 contains detailed requirements as to the number and numbering of claims, the extent to which any claim may refer to other parts of the international application, the manner of claiming, and dependent claims. As to the manner of claiming, the claims must, whenever appropriate, be in two distinct parts; namely, the statement of the prior art and the statement of the features for which protection is sought (“the characterizing portion”). This is a sample Claim.In principle, under the PCT, any dependent claim which refers to more than one other claim (“multiple dependent claim”) must refer to such claims in the alternative only, and multiple dependent claims cannot serve as a basis for any other multiple dependent claim. However, the national laws of most Contracting States permit a manner of claiming which is different from that provided for in the preceding sentence, and the use of that different manner of claiming is in principle also permitted under the PCT. This is a sample Claim.For the purposes of those designated States where that different manner of claiming is not permitted, the applicant must decide which drafting style to adopt. If that different manner of claiming is used, amendments may need to be made to the claims during the national phase in those States which do not permit it. Moreover, the national Offices of such States, when they act as International Searching Authorities, may indicate under Article 17(2)(b)......
