There are lots of different learning style models that indicate some learners need touch or physical movement in order to learn. Although I had believed and taught the models, I had never actually observed how touching and manipulating objects can literally transform a learner.

Have you implemented clear, concise and consistent instructions into your lessons but are still having trouble getting one or two students to follow them? If you are going to get your students to do as you ask, it all has to begin with your attitude. Your attitude is what dictates your approach when dealing with challenging behaviour, so it is very important that you are conveying the appropriate attitude to your students that will result in positive classroom behaviour.

Bureaucracy, hierarchical bullying, leaders and lowly followers, and any other form of governing at the expense and exploitation of the governed... these are hurtful and criminal systems for the benefit of the few and the misery of the many. There are better ways of living and working together. I have proposed and exercised a much simpler, balanced, harmonious, and successful guideline for a good teacher and willing students to truly work and learn together.

Preschool age children typically have a great deal of natural energy. For them it is a period of incredible creativity, imagination, curiosity, and play. They reinvent the world, try on new roles, and struggle to play their parts in it. The stages of child development often found in textbooks should not be viewed as strict guidelines for preschool or any level of development. Rather there is one basic rule you should remember about child development that will save you countless hours of worry.
The fact that a child passes through a particular developmental stage is always more important than the age of the child when he or she does it. In the long run, it really doesn't matter whether your child learn to walk at 10 months or 15 months as long he learns to walk. Every child has in him a timetable for growth - - a pathway unique to him.

There are different things to think about in the classroom when it comes to developing wellbeing for everyone. Since this concept is becoming increasingly relevant to many of the governments agendas; particularly those for Every Child Matters and No Child Left Behind it is a good time to be considering just how we build wellbeing everyday in the way we teach.

Reflections on Standard English in EFL classroom
To be unable to write Standard English or to use its spoken forms in appropriate public contexts is to be disenfranchised, to be deprived of true citizenship…. Where it is appropriate to use the standard, you see it but there are many uses where other forms, or other languages, are as appropriates… It is astonishing to reflect that no linguistic theory has ever begun to pose the question of the permissible range of variation within a standard although it is obvious even from the history of English that the range is not fixed.
Languages all over the world have significant changes over the years and the English language is not an exception. Differences in patterns of sounds, vocabulary and grammar from all over a country make a distinctive way of speaking a language. The way we address to someone in different contexts, situations and places requires our speeches to vary and that also will depend on ...

In an elementary school, there are often four or five classes of each grade level. In our district, one of those classes is for children in the gifted program. If there aren't enough children in the gifted program in that grade level, other students who score high are added to fill up that class.

Is thought not energy? Thought is the energy source that allows man to create his world. Naturally, with thought (E), persistence (T) and focus (1/D2; minimizing D which equates to not deviating from the point of interest), man has created anything that his mind has been able to conceive. Thought, persistence, and focus are the basis for all creation. Whatever exists in the physical world, once danced in the mind of its creator. Hence, the warehouse of man's creative capacity are his dreams.
