When speaking to those who are fluent in Spanish and English, why do we often hear them switch between the two languages?
This is referred to as code switching. It is a normal part of being multilingual and allows the speaker to convey their message clearly within a specific context or setting.
Subject: Early Childhood Education
How is early childhood education, specifically preschool, beneficial to a child's overall education?
Preschool enables children to gain an initial exposure to the school environment and layout of an educational day. They are introduced to structure and routine, which is present in all levels of education.
Is standardized testing the best way to judge skill level and learning ability?
Standardized tests are one way to measure a student's abilities, though it is not the end-all, be-all. Due to their standardized nature, there is no way to possibly capture all individuals and their backgrounds, cultures, and exposure.
