How are phonemic awareness and spelling related?
Phonemic awareness and spelling go hand-and-hand because a good reader must be able to use phonics skills to decode spelling. When spelling words to completion, student use sounds and letter recognition skills to spell. Spelling can show what a student understands about phonemes through graphemes.
Subject: Early Childhood Education
There are two categories of effective literacy programs, instruction and infrastructure. Explain why it is important to implement them in conjunction with one another
In order to create an effective classroom these key elements must be integrated and used between one another to balance out instruction. By creating a balanced classroom environment, students are able to tune into collaborative learning opportunities. When a teacher attends professional development (infrastructure improvements) it gives them the opportunity to better their knowledge and expand into new and improved instructional activities (instructional improvements). Implementing teacher team meetings to discuss curriculum work between classrooms also expands instructional improvement by creating different and inventive activities.
Why is project-based learning considered one of the most influential learning pieces for students to date?
Project-based learning has opened up a new chapter into the educational world. It allows educators to provide students with the opportunity to think outside of the box. This new wave of education creates interactive learning which in turn will enhance students' knowledge and skills within the given subject. Students are given the opportunity to present and manage throughout the learning process. Some examples of project-based learning could include; measuring the amount of recycling the entire school building does/does not and how we can provide more opportunities to recycle, creating a new bill/law as a a group or class and presenting the ideas to local congressmen, bridge building using recyled materials. The amount of oppotunities are endless throughout our changing curriculum. Project-based learning is the new way of learning for students.
