Curriculum Assessment Is Currently a Essay

Excerpt from Essay :

" (Scheibe, 2004)

Part of the problem for teachers in relating to the children of modern learning curricula is the tremendous competition from television programs that force children to process information in an entirely different manner. This assessment is a function of my observations with regard to the interest and understanding of children with regard to environments outside of their immediate radius. The television program appears to limit the viewpoint and concentration of many of my students, up to 1/3 of the class is unable to properly process information regarding a different environment, inclusively foreign and domestic.

According to Scheibe (2004), "In using a curriculum-driven approach, teachers sometimes take a narrow focus for a particular topic or lesson (e.g., linking current advertising appeals to a sixth-grade unit on Greek myths) or weave media literacy into ongoing activities in their classrooms (e.g., in a weekly discussion of current events). Sometimes media literacy is used to link several different parts of the curriculum together (e. g., investigating local history and literature through examining original documents at a local museum)." (Scheibe, 2004)

Recommendations

I feel the textbooks used in today's classrooms are not verbose, but are 'wordy' and do not provide enough pictures that captivate the interest of the child to engage in further discussion, which is what learning is. Unfortunately, the board of education and the textbook publishing companies are often engaging in 'sweetheart' deals and therefore the student is marginalized for the benefit of business. Indeed, often the most appropriate books are the older generation of book, to which the teacher is able to teach to and 'modernize', or update the content to match today's current events.

Therefore, my recommendation is to authorize more power to the teacher to teach the curriculum and enable the student to pass the mandated state examination. The learning material is a key function to how at student is able to process information whilst supplemental material that act as a learning-aid can be provided via the provision of 'ditto's.
