The Importance of Good Writing and Reading Skills. - Blog of Aloha USA : Teaching Kids - Math, Reading and Writing Skills | Childrens education | Scoop.it

Experts say improving writing and reading skills must not be neglected.Reading and writing development are intertwined in learning. The physical act of writing letters and words enhances a child’s ability to read. The complementary relationship between reading and writing continues long after these early efforts. Therefore, it is good to stress on improving writing skills at a young age itself. Good vocabulary is the foundation for good writing. The best way to improve children’s knowledge of words is to encourage them to read more, and look up the meanings of words they do not understand.

Playing simple word games or even scrabble can greatly contribute towards building children’s vocabulary. Going through their homework to check for spelling and grammatical errors is also useful, as it will reinforce what is being taught in school. When children have a report to write at home, it is better to encourage them to make a rough draft first. This way spelling and other errors can be avoided in the final copy.

An Ontological Understanding of Dialogue in Education « Learning Change

An Ontological Understanding of Dialogue in Education «  Learning Change | Childrens education | Scoop.it

This dissertation develops an ontological understanding of dialogue that is then used to reconsider the forms and purposes of schooling. Employing the works of Martin Buber and Mikhail Bakhtin, the work departs from the literature on schooling that treats dialogue as merely an instrument in the schooling of children in order for them to become good citizens, to join the work force and the like. Instead it is argued that dialogue needs to be understood as constituting the very essence of human existence. In addition the dissertation offers a critique of monological assumptions of modern and postmodern philosophies and critiques non-ontological theories of dialogue that give it a merely instrumental, as opposed to constitutive value. The notion of a polyphonic self is then introduced, which calls for reconsideration of the notions of identity, integrity, and authenticity. A human self is co-authored by others, and can exist and be known only through dialogue with others. A person of dialogical integrity is defined as being consistently different in different situations; and the authentic self is true to the dialogical situation, rather than one’s inner feelings and self-concepts. The dissertation illustrates the ontological notion of dialogue by analyzing types of discourse in classroom communication. Instances of dialogue are not those where students and a teacher take turn in an orderly conversation, according to rules of “dialogical teaching.” Rather, dialogue appears in some moments of disruption, talking out of turn, and laughter. The dissertation defines a successful school as one fostering dialogue in its ontological sense. Such a school should possess systemic qualities of complexity, civility, and carnival. These qualities create necessary conditions for the emergence of the dialogical relation.

This looks to be a really good dissertation. 

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, April 5, 2013 8:18 PM

Humans are social beings and require dialogue to be in this world. Without dialogue, which includes speaking, listening, processing, and responding, we cease to exist as social beings.
