NO READ, NO WRITE As an Atenean, I am given life on a sliver platter. We are all known for a reality where our unlimited wants and needs are given to us in a blink of an eye. Despondently, this reality isn’t shared by all of the Filipino people. The luxuries of life we have are near impossible for others, just like the family in the picture. Children like the little girl should be in school, not in the streets.

In 2010, Philippines ranks 134th in the world’s poorest and 15 million Filipinos are illiterate. That’s almost 15% of the entire Filipino population, enough to populate the entire National Capital Region. One out of six school-age Filipino children is not enrolled, figures from the Department of Education (DepEd) and the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB) Imagine the country’s capital, a whole region, made up of only illiterate citizens, is our country this oblivious to the educational needs of the Filipino people?

Teacher should be given incentives in order to compensate for the hours of work put into their efforts to teach and environments should be provided which would make learning an enjoyable experience for both teacher and student. In other words, the government needs to use the budget to build the foundation of our nation’s education, not to squander for personal interests.
. The recently implemented K-12 curriculum has been drastically applied in both private and public schools. Teachers are currently undergoing trainings and buildings are being constructed to house the additional classes. There is progress that the government, with the help of the different sectors, is trying to achieve in terms of our country’s literacy rate. Seeing these would make you think that there is hope for our country, hope that is held on to by thousands of Filipinos thirsting for education.
We should focus on the how we, as Filipinos, would be…...

At the beginning of the assessment, you should receive an initial briefing about the timetable of tests, location of rooms etc. Prior to each test, you will be given instructions describing the exercise, your role, timeframe's, equipment etc. You will not be told in detail about the individual indicators which will be measured. In addition, you are unlikely to receive feedback on your results, unless you have been successfully selected.    | Training for Assessors: A collection of activities for training assessment centre assessors, roleplayers and resource persons 25/07/2002 - 16:42 - 1877 reads The data generated from assessment and development centres depends as much on the skill of the assessors as it does on the skill of the candidates. Poorly trained assessors are unlikely to be objective in their observations, will misinterpret or inadequately record evidence, probably come to the wrong conclusions and, if that weren't bad enough, the chances are they'll lack the techniques to provide effective feedback to the candidates they have so misjudged. Lindy Strudwick's collection of activities provides a means of training assessors to an appropriate level of skill, quickly and cost-effectively.

Learning to Read and Write

...Learning to read and to write There was a magical feeling in the air, you felt like anything was possible when you pulled up to the blue door outside of the school. I always wondered what was behind that door when my mom would drop my sister off, luckily I knew my turn was coming next year and I would be one of the kids playing out front waiting for the bell to ring and then I would be able to walk through that door. What was behind that door was even more than a magical feeling. When you walked in jut to the left were the cubbies. Not just any cubbies, my cubby where I would hang my coat and put my bag every day. As you walked further into the room it opened up into a bright, sunny, fun room with a carpet in the right hand corner and these things called ABC’s up on the wall, along with crafts in the back of the room that we would soon work on once a week. But the most amazing part of my kindergarten experience stood right there in the middle of the room, Mrs.Zigler herself. She is the one that taught me how to read and to write. My earliest memory of learning to read and write would defiantly have to kindergarten, the best grade ever. I think kindergarten has a lot to do with who I'm as writer and the things I like to pick up and read. My kindergarten experience can be broken down into three different categories; reading time, activities, and Mrs.Zigler. Because of my reading and writing experience in kindergarten I really enjoy science, babysitting, and soccer. ......

How to Write

...Instructions 1. Plan * 1 Choose the age category of the book you wish to write. Some examples are board books, picture books, easy readers, chapter books or young adult novels. Be aware that each category has its own style, length, complexity, language and voice suited to the age group you are targeting. * 2 Choose a genre within your category. For example, this may be a book about numbers, a mystery or a family story. * * 3 Have a general idea of plot or set of characters you wish to start with and begin building a storyline. Research any topics you need to learn more about. * 4 Create character sketches. Decide how best to do this for your category. You may find it best to produce note cards or pages devoted to details of your characters: physical description, age, likes and dislikes and his or her role in the story. You must also decide the relationships of the characters as they interact with each other. * 5 Create an outline, a step-by-step account of your story. This should include characters, plots, changes in viewpoint, the climax and the ending. 2. Write * 6 Write the beginning. This is often the most difficult part to write but also the most important. The beginning should introduce the characters and give some insight into the plot of your children's book. * 7 Write the middle, or body of the story.

However, he does not necessarily intend to drop out This student may have a job, or may have been of school. asked by parents to work at home or care for children. Rood (1989) views absenteeism as a constant interruption of the learning process. The more absences a student accumulates, the less he or she can be expected to adequately participate in and understand classroom activities. Rood continues by stating that it is no secret that the skill levels of many high school students have declined while absenteeism continues to increase. He writes that on an average Monday, many urban high schools have an absence rate of more than 30 percent. It is common for many secondary students to miss 20 to 90 days of school in an academic year. Rood (1989), Levanto (1975), and Hegner (1987) have identified the following characteristics of non-attenders: Age – absenteeism increases as a student progresses through high school. Gender – in the first three years of high school, girls will have higher rates of absenteeism than boys will. Race – minority students are more likely to be 19 absent than whites. School success – students with higher grades and/or IQs have better attendance. Program – students in college preparatory programs are present more often than those in vocational,......

Learning to Read and Write

...​Reading, along with writing, were two very important skills that I learned at a very young age. Learning how to read and write was an exciting new skill I learned that I knew would take me far in life. ​I remember the day we first started learning how to write. We began writing the letters of the alphabet. First the capital letter “A”, then the lowercase, and so on and so forth. This seemed very simple at first, but once my teacher left my side things got a little challenging. She started asking the class to spell words by ourselves. I was a little uneasy in the beginning but once I grasped the concept of things and practiced more, things became much simpler. ​Although writing was fairly straightforward to learn, reading was more puzzling and harder to comprehend. I remember looking at the letters and knowing what they were, but pronouncing them was a totally different story. Understanding and remembering the sounds of the different letters took much longer for me to learn. Although I could speak pretty clear, seeing some of the words I spoke on a day to day basis seemed very uncommon. But, as the saying goes, practicing truly does make perfect. ​Once I fully understood the concepts of reading and writing, nobody could stop me from doing it. I would be the first one to raise my hand in class to read the stories from the books and to write different things on the board. This was and still is a very big accomplishment I have achieved in my life. This was also a very proud...

Frederick Douglass Learning to Read and Write

...John Arnold Ronald Lapp, Instructor English 101 Section 1067 11 January 2016 Frederick Douglass: Learning to Read and Write Frederick Douglass’ perseverance in learning how to read and write was amazing. He was a slave with no possibility of becoming a free man. He would be chastised and punished over the mere possibility that he might be learning, so Frederick discovered other methods of educating himself. Douglass described his mistress, his master’s wife, as being an inherently good person at first. She was a very charitable woman who treated every human being she encountered as an equal. She began teaching him the alphabet but soon stopped at her husband’s demand. It was illegal to teach slaves to read or write, the penalty for which could be very harsh. Douglass explained that after she ceased educating him she became assimilated into the lifestyle of slave ownership. This manifested itself in many ways, including Douglass being reprimanded if found loitering in a room alone. He would be accused of reading books which was strictly forbidden. While this treatment would deter most people from pursuing an education it only hardened Douglass’ resolve. His thirst for knowledge would not be quelled so easily. Learning to read presented many challenges for Douglass. When he was twelve years old, he got a copy of a book entitled The Columbian Orator. The message of the book was one of liberation. A slave ran away from his owner three times, and when the third attempt......

Vark Learning Styles: Read/Write Learning Style

... VARK Learning styles: Read/write learning style Name: Institution: VARK Learning styles: Read/write learning style Overview of the read/write learning style The read/write learning style mainly makes the use of printed words to receive and convey learning information. Using the style enables one skill to become the input of another through the transfer of the ability to read to that of writing. The skills transfer is integral in raising the awareness of how the structural components involved in learning are shared in both reading and writing modalities (VARK, 2016). One of the reasons a leaner may choose to embrace the read/write learning style is because it facilitates cognitive concept mastery since it brings out the aspect of making sense of what is read through fixing it in memory by writing it down (Crawford, 2005). Therefore, the method strengthens the learning quality by incorporating both the senses of sight and touch. Pointed out herein is how personal reading/writing strategies compare to the VARK preferred read/write learning style strategies and how the awareness of the individual learning style (read/write style) influences teaching and learning. Preferred learning strategies for read/write learning style * Identification of the item or subject that require a study. * Development of learning goals and questions or hypotheses with regard to the subject of study. * Identification of the sources from which the study will derive concepts from.
