Creating a Sustainable Class-Wide Academic Goal
The class is a group of fifth graders who have the statistically determined differing levels of reading level. The goal last year was for at least 60% of the students reach grade level and their previous teacher was able to meet and exceed that goal. Since reading comprehension is such a critical skill as these students progress through the grade levels it is necessary to make sure that they are achieving the suggested grade level in that ability. Therefore, for the present school year, the goal will be to have 85% of the class reach or exceed reading comprehension at their present grade level (fifth grade). This goal may seem to be a lofty and unattainable, but with proper instruction and facilitation it is something that can be achieved.
Reading comprehension is one of the most important skills that a student will use as he….
Academic Goal Establishment and Implementation
Establishing a clea and common academic goal acoss a boad population of students can be quite difficult, especially when thee ae students with special leaning needs included at all levels of academic achievement and pogess within the student population. Educatos and administatos need to ensue that couses and mateials aen't simply "taught to the middle," which does a significant dissevice to those students both above and below gade level and skill when it comes to specific aeas of leaning. That is, teaching only to the established citeia of a gade level, which (assuming the citeia have been popely established) should seve the needs of the lagest segment of the student population, means students that ae moe advanced in thei pogess and those that ae stuggling with the mateial eceive a lowe quality of education and educed oppotunities fo pesonal gowth and development. Academic goals implemented….
references to specific student readings can also be incorporated into such lessons to make the links between general information and personal experience that much more clear.
If it was observed in February that a quarter of all students were not on track to meet the identified academic goal, significant steps would need to be taken to ensure a higher level of achievement. Individual meetings with these students could be increased, and partnerships with some of the more advanced students might also be implemented as a way of allowing peer involvement during group lessons to help improve critical engagement. As reading confidence is the primary concern for low-achieving students, however, a more beneficial approach would be to assign additional reading material, but of a sufficiently easy level so as not to present an undue burden on these students. Reading improves with practice, ad thus it is practice reading that such students would need in order to achieve the established goal. Extra support would also need to be provided, but the students must be prompted through this support to take their own actions in changing their circumstance.
Teaching a diverse population of learners will never be optimal for every student. There will always be some give and take regarding the capabilities of the classroom as a whole and the level of individual attention students can receive. With proper goals and a strategy for achieving these goals, though, all students can be well-served even in a diverse educational setting.

Academic Progress Report
Introduction greatly appreciate the financial support the Foundation has son generously offered to me; without it I would not be able to attend school or complete my degree. With this financial aid, I have been able to pursue my academic and career interests without being preoccupied with my finances. As I have a family, the financial aid is not only a boon, but it is absolutely necessary for my academic and professional development. The Foundation offered me a partial tuition grant for the past three years so that I could complete my Bachelor's Degree at ABC College. I am now entering my senior year at ABC and hope to continue receiving the financial aid that I need in order to receive a Bachelor's Degree in Fine Art. I will require one more semester's worth of tuition aid. Through the following progress report, I hope to convey to the….
Goals Statement couldn't believe my eyes. After all the wrapping paper lie strewn on the floor, I held in my hands the best present I had ever received. It wasn't a Game Boy or a new CD: it was a book called "Chemistry for Kids," and it came with a small lab set. I wasted no time, and immediately set out to perform my first experiments. I felt high as I gathered ordinary household items and watched them change into new forms of matter. My very first experiment was a success, and a practical one, too: I made my very own toothpaste. No many people can say they made toothpaste when they were ten years old, yet with the help of a simple chemistry set and a few materials I found around the house, I experienced newfound joy in my daily ablutions before school.
My homemade toothpaste became a great source….

The importance of a strong opening and closing, practicing, staying organized and focused and taking the stage with confidence are skills that I continue to apply in my class presentations.
At times my classes, especially the General Education classes, have been quite challenging. Having proven to myself that I have the intellectual capacity, discipline and drive to pass these classes, I am inspired and encouraged when presented with some of the challenges of life. A significant aspect of a college education is developing critical reasoning. It is not so much to memorize facts and figures, but to be able to penetrate ideas and concepts and extract their essence. Understanding the way mechanisms work is a sine-qua-non condition of gaining the ability to deconstruct ideas and theories and applying them to one's personal and professional life. It is through this kind of individualized approach, I believe, that higher education is particularly….
Academics, Athletics, And Good Moral Character
I am only seventeen years old, and yet, I feel that I have much more life experience than most of the kids my age. In addition to school, my life has been shaped by events such as domestic abuse, the death of a classmate and a strong mother whose influence, determination and hard work have given my life structure.
For the past four years, I have received an outstanding education from St. Ignatius, which places a premium on academics, athletics, and good moral character. I have learned a lot as a student at St. Ignatius and continue to work hard to hone my academic skills and improve my GPA. Senior year has been my most enjoyable so far, particularly in terms of my stimulating classes. Classes such as give class and give class have been particularly enjoyable for me, and I am looking forward to pursuing….
Women may want to explore problems more through verbal communication than men. By discussing a problem, women find that they are able to explore solutions, strengthen relationships and be more involved with the person whom they are talking with. Women may feel more connected or feel more alone depending on how they are dealing with a situation.
Men are the opposite. A lot of men see dealing with problems as a way of showing how smart they are. They want to solve the problem and move on to the next problem -- no hassles. Men are more able to put their own feelings aside and take control of the situation by assuming authority in a problem solving process. Men seem to be distracted by the fact that they want to solve a problem and thus the quality of the way in which they solve the problem oftentimes is lacking.
It may sound….
Academic Journal Entry
I feel as if I acquired several valuable lessons from the first several chapters of the text. The following sections will illustrate some of the points that I felt that were the most relevant to me. One of the most influential sections came at the beginning and helped me to understand what a foundation for a human resource strategy might look like. It is important in my opinion, above all else, to be proactive in employee relationships so that you can foster an environment in which the human resource department can serve as a cornerstone of the organization rather than some distant alien force that only swoops in when there is a major problem.
First of all, I liked the notion of human capital and how it applies to an overall, most holistic approach to a Human Resource strategy. There seem to be two approaches that a HR….
My Goals For The Next Five Years
Setting goals: SMART
Setting goals is an important part of moving forward in life. Martin Luther King Jr. once said: "If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward." Of course, all of us would like to fly forward and reach our goals easily. But often long-term goals take a great deal of work to achieve, and are the cumulation of a series of short-term goals that are undertaken step-by-step. My ultimate personal goal in life is to be a good mother to my son and to financially as well as personally support him on his journey to becoming a pilot while I pay off my house. My long-term academic goal is to complete my major successfully. I am studying to be a respiratory therapist.….
matriculated at ____ College/University without a very clear idea of my academic goals. I felt young and a bit naive when I entered university, but through experience and hard work I have matured and gained focus. Like many first and second year students, I took the required courses without a clear idea of what my major would eventually be. However, knowing that I wanted to solidify my career goals, I decided that I would find my niche. With the future as a blank slate, I pursued various majors until I found that I was drawn to the sports industry.
My grades, which had suffered a bit due to my having to work full time while in college, improved immediately after I realized how clear my path had become. I trail blazed, determined to complete my degree on a high note. I became more interested in internships with professional organizations that….
In addition to that, the libraries also had to launch various training programs in order to ensure that their employees possess the appropriate skills that are being required by the operations and activities of the organization. (Foo, Chaudry, Majid & Logan, 2002)
Changing Demands of Users
Due to a significant change in the academic environment, an ever increasing emphasis was laid down on group work and self-study. The students, therefore, started looking for online information in the academic libraries. The libraries faced a challenge of increased consumer demand and had to work on customer services and proper and timely availability of information. The libraries needed to provide the consumers with user friendly services. They also had to analyze the changes in consumer demands and had to provide the services that best fit the requirements of changing academic world. (Maponya, 2004)
The academic libraries are an important component and information infrastructure of the….

Clickers/esponses Phonics Lesson
Phonics Long Vowel - Silent e Lesson Plan for Special Education
Students will recognize and say words that follow the c-v-c-e and v-c-e rule where the first vowel is a long vowel and the final e is silent. By using the Clickers/esponses as a classroom game they will utilize them after hearing the correct sounds.
Students with the will be able to spell and write out some basic long vowel words that have c-v-c-e and v-c-e spelling patterns and will use the Clickers/esponses when they hear the right sound.
About the Concept:
There are several regular long vowel spelling patterns in the English language. The c-v-c-e pattern (consonant-vowel-consonant-final e) is a long vowel spelling pattern which occurs quite frequently in early reading and spelling. Essentially, the phonics rule for this design mentions that when a vowel and final e are separated by a single consonant, the first vowel is long, and the….
