Benefits of an Early Warning System in Higher Education

Student Attrition in Colleges and Universities:

Probably the most serious problem colleges and universities face these days is how to retain their students. The fact alone that fewer and fewer students enroll each year already makes it a considerable feat for administrators to run their schools effectively.

Retained are those who enroll each semester until they graduate. They are the full-time students who obtain their degrees without academic delays. On the other hand, there are Dropouts who enter a university and leave without finishing their course. And then there are transfers who enter school, leave it midway through their course and enroll in another school with the intention of graduating in that new school.

Reasons behind Student Attrition:

• Academic Under preparedness: Attrition ...

Differentiating Writing in the Classroom

For the purpose of this article, integrating writing and differentiation into your classroom, I have designed techniques that meet most writing needs most of the time. Teaching writing and differentiation fluctuate with the student and the assignment, the moment and the timing, but the information that follows provides some insight for you.

Just as it focuses on what students already know and are able to do. Differentiation also recognizes that there may be gaps in past learning and so materials and techniques are combined to fill those gaps. Think of this as rebar and cement re-enforcement, not sand and a dab of paste...

The Importance Of Classroom Rules

Experienced teachers don’t deal with problems, they prevent them from occurring’ – so begins Geoff Petty’s section on classroom organisation in his book ‘Teaching Today – A Practical Guide” (Stanley Thornes (Publishers) Ltd, 1998). Ground rules are fundamental to order in the classroom, and order in the classroom is essential if effective teaching and learning are to take place. Here we will consider how to prevent problems from occurring through the establishment of appropriate classroom rules.

You can simply tell the learners what the rules are – you have complete control in this case, they are YOUR rules and it is your responsibility to enforce them. By letting them decide the rules learners have a greater commitment to keeping them...

Montessori Education – What Are The Benefits?

Choosing an education system or a method for your child is something only you can do and Montessori education is one of the major options you have. This educational approach was developed by Maria Montessori an Italian educator and physician and it emphasizes more on freedom, independence and respect for the social, physical and psychological development of the child. This education system is becoming very popular across the globe probably because of the many advantages it has over other educational approaches.

1. The education focuses on the developmental stages of the children falling in the age group of 3 and 5 to hone language skills, motor skills and completion of important daily activities such as arts and crafts, cooking and dressing among others...

Three Fundamental Parts of a Classical Education

A classical education gives students opportunities they wouldn’t otherwise have. Some schools, however, advertise that they are classically-based, but actually lack the structure and methodology of an authentic “academy” in its classic form. This term derives from the school that Socrates founded, Athen’s “School of Thought,” and is integral in understanding how classical education functions in a modern world.

Focus on the Triumvirate

Not only does a classical education focus on, well, the classics (in both letters and sciences), but it is also based on a very old series of “schools” within schools. These three branches of the educational process were titled “Grammar, Logic, and Rhetoric...

Why Private High Schools Are Better

Much has been written and said about the state of public education in America — almost none of it good! Falling graduation rates, poor test scores, and growing achievement gaps have plagued the once respected system for decades. It is no wonder parents with the financial means often send their kids to private high schools. Here are just a few of the benefits these institutions offer.

Higher Academic Standards

One of the main reasons private institutions have higher graduation and college-going rates than public ones is that they expect more from their students. As a result, pupils must push themselves to succeed in a more a rigorous academic environment. And, in the vast majority of cases, kids are able to live up to these heightened expectations...

Booklet Tips – License Your Course

Once you expand your bite size brilliance into a course of some kind, not only do you have an additional way to deliver your knowledge to those who are eager to learn from you in whatever formats you deliver the course; you also have new revenue streams that others want to help you create.

Your new course, whether online, by phone, in-person, scheduled live, self-guided, or on-demand can bring you new income way beyond simply offering it to those who will pay you a registration fee to take it. In fact there are people who are thrilled to find well-constructed programs that someone else labored to develop – and pay you a licensing fee to be able to deliver it themselves to audiences they attract.

Licensing is “renting” your content to someone else, for them to use in specific ways you allow...

Mastering Mindsets for Maximum Learning

The New Psychology of Success (2006) by the major researcher in the field, renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck. Dweck’s research has shown that your students’ mindsets are one of the most important factors impacting their achievement. As such, this is one factor that master teachers don’t leave to chance.

First of all, for those of you who aren’t very familiar with the mindsets research conducted by Dweck and others, here’s a quick recap of the main findings. In her research, Dweck identified two basic “mindsets” that impact virtually everything we do (and not just in school). These two mindsets are (1) the fixed mindset and (2) the growth mindset.

People who have a fixed mindset hold a deep-seating belief that one’s qualities–cognitive ability and personality traits both...
