Make College Students More Courageous

Reduce Fears and Anxieties

If you want your students to be more courageous, remember that as a professor, your role is to teach, guide, model and inspire, not to show students how tough “the real world is.” Learning new content and balancing education with life is already hard enough, no need to instill fear on top of this. As an added bonus, as you minimize fears and anxieties, and students push through, they build confidence.

To minimize fears and anxieties in your students, there are several things you can do, here are some tips:

Set course expectations up front.

Link students to helpful resources.

Give them tips on what to do if they encounter technology problems.

Provide your contact information and answer emails/calls in less than 24 hours.

Give a little leeway in the event a student had a major life event occur during a specific week.

Humanize yourself. You can do this by sharing a little about who you are personally, doing videos in the courseroom, using humor, building rapport.

Don’t give negative feedback in the open forum. Use personal email or gradebook feedback.

Studying in Poland

1. History

Poland’s history of academic started from somewhere around in middle of the 14th century, when King Casimir the Great established Cracow Academy, which is today known as the Jagiellonian University which was world’s first state ministry for education. And after almost two centuries later Jesuit College for Vilnius got transferred into the Vilnius Academy. So by the end of 17th century, the Poland and Lithuania Kingdoms had 3 major universities providing academic education to the national student’s as well international ones.

2. Value for Money

Polish university tuition fees are considerably lower than other study destinations, Fees are rarely more than 2800 EURO per annum, bigger saving in comparing with other European countries.Warsaw is a cheaper place to live than many Eastern European cities, including Prague, Bratislava and Tallinn according to Mercer’s Cost of Living Ranking. And for personal expenses students may opt for part time job during term and full time job during term breaks, which is permitted by the universities like WSGE universities.

3. Student Life

Polish people take higher education seriously

Rules Of Homeschooling

1. Parent to School Board/Government

We are particularly fortunate because we have multiple school boards that solely serve the homeschooling population in our province of Alberta. This is a tremendous help as we are assigned to a case worker who travels to our house twice a year to consult with us about our goals, curriculum, activities, expenses, etc.

It helps to know that even though we have chosen homeschooling, we are not completely alone. The case worker is also available throughout the year free of charge for questions or advice when difficult situations arise. They also offer great ideas about what is working for other families in similar circumstances.

Another added bonus of this is that our children’s education is documented with a public school board that is recognized by the government of Alberta. This makes the transition to high school and college much easier than if we just went it alone. Part of this is our school board does yearly provincial standard testing, which is kept on file, to help make sure our children are either on

Homeschoolers

Have an UNSCHOOL DAY – If you are a traditional homeschooler, and not an unschooler, you may wish to have an UNSCHOOl day to break from the norm. Tell your kids that you they can pick anything they want to work on and learn about today. See where the day takes you. (Don’t worry, one day won’t kill the schedule!) If you are an unschooler, maybe plan the day for the kids with worksheets and reading lists and see what happens.

Take an unplanned fieldtrip – Feeling like no one wants school today? Take an unplanned fieldtrip to a park, museum, library, even the shopping mall. Decide to walk around, talk about whatever you want to talk about, stop and relax (and don’t think of the schedule). Have a lunch out. Walk outside. Go to the dog park and name the types of dogs. Look at nature and talk about trees. Just get out of the house and away from the schedule for the day and see how much more focused everyone is the next day.

Let the kids teach – Tell the kids that today, they do not have to do school, but you need

Need a Home Tutor

First step towards home tutoring

The first step that must be taken towards home tutoring is to determine whether or not your child requires home tutoring. This is a very important step because not everyone requires special attention. Thus it is always up to the parent or guardian to take a wise call as far as house tutoring is concerned. If you feel that it is not required, it would be very wise of you to just let go of the idea and move on with the normal classes.

Benefits of home tutoring

Home tutoring involves the dispatch of a qualified and highly experienced tutor to a client without having to drive or travel to anywhere. This is not required for all children or students but the ones that have very unique needs and requirement of attention as far as learning and teaching is concerned. Also such a tutor can be able to address all the special needs as well as work that is required to ensure that a pupil is getting all the required help and attention. A tutor can give special attention to all these special and important needs and in a process

Motivates Students To Succeed In College

Challenge – There are students are motivated by a challenge. They see college as a big challenge, one that requires them to fight for success. Students who have the personality, operating style and self-confidence to face and overcome challenges will do well in this environment because they won’t allow themselves to fail.

Fear – For some students, fear is a good motivator. These students do well in college because they don’t want to lose their scholarships, don’t want graduate without a job, don’t want to fail out and still have large loan repayments and don’t want to anger or embarrass their families.

Joy of Learning – Some students truly love the college environment. They enjoy learning and devour information on subjects that turn them on. They strive to become knowledge experts, thought leaders and information repositories. The need for information motivates them.

A Clear Purpose – When students head off to college with a clear and single-minded purpose, they are usually motivated to do well. They see college as a means to an end, one that is important to them. On the other hand, students who enter college with no clear purpose in mind are

Solutions To Finding Cheaper Textbooks

Rent – Textbook prices are ridiculous. Rentals may be the biggest way to lower textbook costs. It also ties up the least cash up front compared to buying and reselling. Rental prices tend to be 20-25% of the cost to purchase. Make sure you review the T&C’s, especially the return date and any grace periods.

International Editions – In many cases textbook publishers offer lower cost editions in other countries. They may have a paper cover or black & white photos but the content is the same. You will be amazed at how low the prices are for International Editions of the same textbook.

Last Year’s Edition – If you absolutely cannot afford this year’s edition of a textbook consider buying the prior edition of the book. Many times the changes are minor and you will get the content for rock bottom prices. Search by title and not the ISBN to find other editions of your textbook.

Shop Around – You don’t know a good price unless you shop around. Don’t assume the major players always have the cheapest price. Supply and demand cause prices to shift quickly so today’s cheapest source may not be

Get Ready for Student Exchange Program

Receive a checkup with your doctor well in advance to verify that your good health and find some necessary shots or inoculations; this is quite important. Require their contact information on you, in the event, you will need any non-emergency health information during your journey.

Communicate with your host family in advance, if you’ve got one, by email or letter. This is a fantastic way to construct your enthusiasm for the adventure, learn significant things about each other in progress and become a little more familiar-so you won’t feel as though you’re going in with complete strangers once you arrive.

Brush up on these language skills! Whether you are near-fluent or a newcomer, it will not hurt to devote an hour per night listening to language tapes, watching foreign language movies from the country you’re going to be seeing and studying literature from that language-even if it is merely magazines.

Research a little on the background, lifestyle and culture of the nation you are visiting, so you’re going to need at least a fundamental comprehension. This is not only going to be a series of respect to people you are likely to meet but may

College Education Free

While the aristocracy and some of the wealthy may look upon a college/university education as a globally-oriented, social finishing experience for the young adults in their families, the existing and developing bourgeois (middle class) should recognize college as the next step toward their personal success in the market. Broad, non-focused development of diverse cultural experiences, knowledge and related soft skills is of limited market value and cannot be justified in a ROI consideration. The implication is not that we should forego teaching liberal arts. However, much of higher education has drifted so far from marketable to the corporate world that it is almost criminal to suggest to a student that s/he should major in such subjects, much less pay for the “opportunity”.

The higher education industry claims that as a result of their education and training you will be paid by industry. But, as schools focus more on expanding their liberal arts, fine arts, entertainment (including sports) departments and to a lesser degree upon that which supports and drives markets, the more graduates finish college with lesser marketable knowledge and skills. Most colleges are not accountable for producing job-specific, job-accessing graduates from each student enrolled. Some have

Child For The Boarding Environment

• Check if the present school provides a flexi-board facility in which you can let him board at school for a few weekends so that he can eventually get used to the idea. The stay can be used for extra classes, sports training prior to an important match or some co-curricular activities.

• Never miss out on the open days for new parents. These are usually held during the last two weeks of the last term, prior to new admissions. It is usually a great opportunity for your child to mix up with inmates and staff. It would be much easier for him to adjust when he’s already aware of what to expect at his new home. Moreover, you can also get to know other parents who would be going through the same phase of preparations and mutual sharing of experiences and suggestions always tend to happen when all are on the same ship.

• Find out if anyone from your circle or your child’s school would be joining the same school in the same term or is already a student there. Call them home more often and encourage your child to make friends with them.

Explore the World on College Budget

Look for Student Deals

You’ll find countless websites online that boast the lowest rates in town, but there are only a select few that are designed to offer deals to students. You should check out sites like Student Universe and STA Travel, which have package deals and discounts designed just for the traveling student. These are available to you as long as you’re able to prove your university enrollment. You’ll also find great money-saving tips given by other traveling students.

Consider All Forms of Transportation

There are more ways to travel than by airplane and car – you should also consider other modes of getting around, such as trains, subways and buses. The cost for these transportation options will vary depending on where you’re traveling to. If you can make it to your destination by land, then consider using the bus or train instead of an airplane. Even if you find a cheap flight ticket, airlines are known to nickel and dime you with additional fees, cutting your savings substantially. So if you have trouble finding something within your budget, consider your other options.

Really Fix Higher Education

One member of our think tank told me not to be naïve, no matter what you do; “The system is not likely to change anytime soon.” Well, if that is the case, then we don’t need it. I can learn more online, faster and well enough without the $50,000 college debt, thank you very much, and I don’t have to go into economic enslavement to do it either. My think tank acquaintance agreed and told me:

I know, and that is the unfortunate point. The students of those professors who could not care less are the ones who pay the price in terms of wasting their time, tuition money, etc. Students might choose other profs (dedicated profs) classes, but their classes would tend to fill up fast, so that always some students will have no other option but to register for the terrible tenured professors’ course, in a given quarter or semester. So many students have expressed their disdain online and offline over the conduct and less than professional behavior of many of these “tenured” profs, and this will sadly, continue to be the case year after year… unless the system is overhauled, which again, is not

Private Tutoring

Mano E Mano

As the name suggests, the greatest advantage of private tutoring is individual attention. Like we mentioned before, schools are overburdened with students. It is impossible for a teacher to provide individual attention to each student in class. Some school teachers may also be indifferent towards the child’s education, leaving it incomplete. Moreover, introverted kids may feel shy about asking questions in class. Private tutoring can provide your child with a comprehensive education, while you judge the tutor’s performance on a day to day basis.

You Know How You Get To Carnegie Hall, Don’t Ya?

The answer to the above question is practice. Simply going to school and doing your homework isn’t going to cut it in the real world. To truly excel at something, you need to practice it. Whether it’s playing the violin or solving equations, practice makes perfect. Daily tutoring ensures your child practices what he’s learnt in school. After all, if you repeat something a number of times, it becomes second nature.

A Chain Is Only As Strong As Its Weakest Link

You need not enroll your child for private tutoring in each and every subject. However,

Child Flourish With Early Learning

Parents that are pre-occupied with their work 24×7 can always send their child to a good early education center. A good early education center can help your child partake in developmental activities and help increase the cognitive skills of a child. On the off chances you do find time out of your busy schedule you might still want to consider placing your child in an early education center, here are some reasons as to why to rely on a professional for the development of your child.

1. Institutions that specialize in offering good cognitive skills are professionals and experienced in offering an environment for a child’s positive development.

2. These institutions offer a child with a beautiful and fun learning environment that can help your child flourish.

3. A child is made available with a healthy interactive environment that can help a child better in socializing.

4. These institutions encourage children with curiosity.

5. This might be known to all but is still ignored by many, skills taught to us in early age later acts as an important factor in the learning process.

6. Learning and skills offered by these institutions will

Learning Doesn’t Come Easy

I didn’t always feel that way though. After struggling to teach my daughter to read for 3 years with little progress I was getting pretty frustrated and so was she. Each school session ended in tears and some days started in tears with the mere mention of reading. She had always loved books and being read to and was excited to learn how to read by herself. So, why was it such a struggle? Was I just a bad teacher? Was she too easily distracted and not self motivated enough?

We finally decided to get testing done at age 7. I had noticed a lot of letter and word reversal while reading and writing as well as in math. She complained of her head and eyes hurting when reading (and a vision test found her to have 20/20 eyesight). I needed to know what was holding us back. I knew she was extremely intelligent in so many ways but we were hitting a brick wall. Since we homeschool, we decided to have her tested with a private therapist. It took 4 hours to complete and when finished we were told she had visual and auditory processing disorders.

Make Kid More Organized

Introduce your child to a day-planner or if you are not a gadget fan then stick to traditional timetables. Put reminders for important dates and paper submissions, keeping scope for sufficient action time; coax your child into action accordingly. He will be pleased with himself as he would be appreciated at school for never missing out any test dates or submissions. That is the time when he will begin to act without your efforts.

Get an agenda book or ask him to use his school diary for writing his tasks and not just complains and holiday notices. Make it mandatory to list all homework assignments, submissions, and tests date wise even if he can remember. Check what he has got on his plate for the day and help him manage his time. This is an important lesson for life: document things before they become a clutter.

This entire ordeal is useless if you would have to turn the whole house upside down to find the drawing book. So, make a special school zone in your home where things are orderly arranged and absolutely nothing from school stuff should be found anywhere else. Allot a different corner

Raising Polyglots

1. I spoke to them in the target language from birth. When others around us must understand my conversation with them, I switch to English. Even though I live and homeschool in the US, I use Romanian as the language of instruction as much as I can. I repeat new concepts and vocabulary in both Romanian and English to make sure they get it.

2. I read to them in the target language at least 20 minutes a day. At first, I translated from English into Romanian. As the books got more complex, I switched to reading in English from English books, in French from French books and in Romanian from Romanian books.

3. We sing and listen to music in Romanian and French. While they play or eat, we turn it on in the background. They really like it. I point out some words if they are interested.

4. We Skype regularly in Romanian with my family or friends. I am connecting online with other multilingual moms and, hopefully, we will Skype in French soon.

5. I brush up on my own language skills by reading books, newspapers and blogs in French (or
