Education Questions and Answers - Class Size A class of 20 students provides better learning opportunities than a class of 35 students. The smaller the class size, the more resources the teachers would have available for the students inside the classroom. For example, lined papers, scissors, pencils or any other materials that would help the students complete their assignments. The smaller the class size, the less likely the students would cause trouble with one another or disrupt lessons in the classroom. Teachers that do not have to worry about class disruptions have more time to focus on teaching their students and providing additional help....   [tags: Education Esays]

Benefits of Music Education - Music has always been an important part of my life. Although I do not remember the performances, I have home videos of myself singing in my church’s preschool choir.

This passion caused me to become heavily involved in my church’s choirs and musical productions.

The two pieces, one traditionally persuasive, the other traditionally literary, differ in their delivery but converge in their principles.

Others assert that special education is unethical because it stigmatizes and segregates minority students and violates the rights of children (Grossman, 1998; Granger & Granger, 1986). On the other hand, proponents of special education point to the effectiveness of intensive interventions in the area of reading (Wanzek & Vaughn, 2007), as well as literature reviews which have found special education services...   [tags: ethics, politics, professional education]
