VALUABLE VALUES FOR CHILDREN







How many years do we want to be wrong about this..when are we going to listen to what brain      research tells us over and over about how children learn BEST...and boys in particular?

THIS IS ONE OF MY MANTRAS NOW:

“If a child Cannot Learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the Way They Learn”
-Michael J. Fox

Children are unique and have to be taught at their DEVELOPMENTAL LEVEL…not their Chronological age. In addition for boys, the instruction must be engaging, boy friendly, and active. So why on earth would school districts cut recess that is a vital part of brain stimulation for learning????

I think I have a much needed book…for THE IMPROVEMENT IN EDUCATION OF OUR YOUTH My book is currently being published by Rowman & Littlefield Educational Department (under Tom Koerner, V.P. and Carlie Wall, Associate Editor) The publishing of this book was completed in the spring, 2015.

In addition, I taught in Vancouver School District for over 17 years, and in Clovis Unified School District for 23 years in California…a total of 40 years! I also supervised Concordia’s Student Teachers during my retirement.. I would be  eager to talk with you about any upcoming conferences or trade fairs that I may present in….or suggestions of how to get my book out there. You may contact me at:

LGILLIAM@TEACHERADVOCATE.COM My book is : “Seven Steps to Help Boys Love School: Teaching to their Passion for Less Frustration!”  
By Linda Marie Gilliam, Published with Rowman & Littlefield Educational Department.

In order for us to even come close to closing the nation’s educational gap, the future of America depends on creating successful students by the 3rd Grade.  Now with so many students coming into America from different countries, languages, and cultures…our Educational System is ripe for a drastic change. A successful student (boys in particular) will lead to less bullying and gangs, fewer drop outs, less suicides….and most importantly…. a happy, productive human being.

I discovered a program as an Elementary Teacher and Literacy Specialist, addressing a successful way to reach children, by teaching basic skills through whatever passion they had at the time. (Passion or Interest) When using my program, I also realized that Passions can change, but the basic learning tools are WELL established in Reading, Writing, Spelling, Science, and Math by 3rd Grade. I was proud to receive “Teacher of the Year” for my efforts in Vancouver.

My “7 Steps to Help Boys Love School,, can be applied in Homeschooling as well. In my opinion this book could be an asset to parents, teachers, librarians, coaches, caregivers, and hopefully administrators!

It is my belief, that over my 40 years of  teaching (and lucky for me my passion), our antiquated schools systems have changed very little. Now with the new Common Core Standards, help for struggling students, parents, and teachers is needed more than ever! Education can spend all the money in the world… but WILL get the same “lack luster” results… if we do not change HOW we are teaching. Reminding me of the definition of INSANITY:

“Doing the same things over and over, and expecting a different result!”.

HERE ARE SOME WISE STATEMENTS TO PONDER ABOUT EDUCATION:

Education is not preparation for life; Education is life itself [John Dewey].
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. [Aristotle]
Education is the key to unlock the golden door of freedom [George Washington Carver].
An investment in knowledge pays the best interest [Benjamin Franklin].
Education is the movement from darkness to light [Allan Bloom].
The whole purpose of Education is to turn mirrors into windows [Sydney J. Harris].
The only person who is educated is the one who has learnt how to learn and change [Carl Rogers].
