you ever been asked what really education is before?
May be it was from your
son or from your daughter, or you may have asked that question yourself due to
mere curiosity. Whatever
the case may be, it is necessary and equally important to know what really
education is and it impact on us. The
word “educate” comes from the Latin word,“ducere” meaning to draw out
or lead. So education simply means to draw out or lead people to their
potentials or gifts in life. What this means to me is that, a person (student), need to find out his/her gifts and then look for someone (teacher) who can draw that gifts out so to help him or her become a better person.
In other words, an educator (teacher) must and should be able to find out a person's (student) gifts/potentials and draws out from them so to make them a better person. In most cases, you can identify a person's gifts by knowing their specific learning style.
You can learn more about how to identify your child's learning style fr…
This is Part One of the five different series article on Identifying Your Child’s Learning Style with the goal of improving his or her performance in school. To get all the articles in this series, Click Here To Subscribe To My FREE Email Course Does your son has trouble spelling or does your daughter finds it difficult sitting still for history class, don’t worry. It may be that he or she simply has a different learning style. Children receive and process information — that is, learn — in different ways based partly on their environments but mostly on their genetic profiles. Experts have identified three primary learning styles into which nearly all children (and adults) fall: visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. Even at a very early age, observational clues can indicate a likely learning style. Once you identify whether your child learns primarily by looking, listening, or doing, you can help shape his or her educational experience so that it prioritizes this primary learning style, whi…
It is clear that by now most of us are aware of the government policy of instituting a free SHS for all citizens of Ghana. This is evidently clear that, as people, we have realized that education is key and critical to our development as a nation. The acknowledgment of this fact is paramount in the quest to transform our economy by creating wealth and improving the living standards of all citizens. From personal analysis with regard to views expressed by experts in education, as well as political commentators and views of various political parties on the issue of free SHS, I can conclude that it’s a good concept. However, it seems to me that most people are not clear about what really the free SHS concept is about and what it intends to do for it citizens. Let me take the opportunity now to review this concept and touch on few salient issues that need to be considered. I would like to hear what you also think about this, so feel free to leave a comment below: What is Ghana’s free SHS By f…
Most homeschool families teach their children from home until certain conditions are met.
Some parents stop once they believe they are no longer qualified to teach. Others, on the other hand, may enroll the kids in the public education and still employ a private tutor at home, others wait until they believe their children have matured enough to handle the social pressure, influences, and other adverse effects of public education and the ‘outside’ world.
Furthermore, other families leave the decision up to their children.
Sometimes extremely independent students and self-learners ask their parents to pull them from public schools so they can create a more independent schedule. Whichever case, as a parent, you must think carefully about the kind of education you want to be providing your child. If you decide to homeschool your child to a certain level using the NATIONAL CURRICULUM, then, you will most likely n…
The future is everything. In my How To Identify Your Child’s Learning Style series (Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4) you learned that every child is unique with a specific learning style. You’ve also learned: How To Identify A Child’s Unique Learning Style. How To Help A Child With Visual Learning Style To Excel. How To Help A Child With Auditory Learning Style To Excel. How To Help A Child With Kinesthetic Learning Style To Excel. A Cautionary Note Unfortunately, most people don’t fit perfectly into one of the three learning style categories.
So the real skill here is somewhat counterintuitive – you have to allow your child to explore all the different ways of learning and then choose the one that best fits him/her depending on his/her responds. The reason why this is the case comes down to the future. There’s a time to reproduce all that one has learned. No wonder people struggle to get results – it’s so easy to use the right learning style for the wrong person. Remember! You are your child…
In our previous lesson, we looked at what learning disability is, causes and it symptoms. In this lesson however, I want to focus on what parents must do
to assist kids with learning disability. Just because your child has trouble studying for a test doesn't
mean he or she have a learning disability. There are as many learning styles as there are
individuals. Some people are just naturally slower readers or learners than
others, but they still perform well for their age and abilities. Sometimes,
what seems to be a learning disability is simply a delay in development; the
person will eventually catch up with — and perhaps even surpass — his or her
peers. But many people with learning disabilities struggle for a long
time before someone realizes that there's a reason they're having so much
trouble learning. Once a person's particular problem has been pinpointed, he or
she can then follow strategies or take medicines to help cope with the
disability. A child with learning dis…
Many parents don't invest enough time and energy over their kids homework or tutoring until there is a sign of lingering behind at school. However research recommends that from the time children are young, it is vital to talk and read to them, since by doing so, we are helping them build the foundations of effective
speaking, reading and writing skills.
It is not only language we have to be
aware of, however; it is equally vital to instill the value of regular study
and learning in a child. So the writting is on the wall, it's never too early to begin supporting your childs' education, and that utilizing a tutor is a viable method for supporting them, perhaps when you can't help. At the point when lessons are taught for fun, study is never exhausting; rather, it is a chance for you to bond with your kid helping your them learn through play whiles increasing their self-confidence. The following steps are guides for getting the most out of your tutoring at home. Discover yo…
Ultimately, we want our kids to
develop love for learning. A passion for
learning is quite different from just studying to earn a grade or to please
parents or teachers. Those who develop a love of
learning at an early age continue the process throughout their lives and are
generally more successful, interesting, and happier than those who don't. Most parents read to
their young kids, which help encourage imagination, language, and an early love
of learning. But not all children remain curious and inquisitive into
adolescence. Alarmingly, studies have found that from third grade on, a child's
enjoyment of learning drops continuously -- a phenomenon some researchers blame
on the increasing focus on grades and report cards as kids get older. Younger
children, on the other hand, learn for the sheer joy of it. You can do a lot now
to help your child maintain this healthy attitude throughout school. To
captivate a young mind, let your child do what comes naturally and make
