CaChoo It!: Teaching Mastery by Reframing Negative Thoughts by Chaia May

By Chaia May

while childrens are being affected by whatever, rather an tool, they fail to remember that studying will be enjoyable. they should be reminded that they're “playing,” no longer “working” an software!
A CaChoo is a enjoyable image of achievement, not more than a line drawn through a baby on a web page* with a flourish. We exuberantly exclaim “CaChoo!” so that it will motivate her or him to perform and to “do it back” till the cloth is mastered. Mastery may be an summary suggestion however the “CaChoo process” makes it concrete: the youngsters recognize they need to “get” it all alone and finally play it with out mistakes.
If the piece is tough, I say a toddler can get a CaChoo after enjoying it adequately thrice in a row. That’s simply because after thrice, our fingers revert to automated and we have to direct our arms with our ‘minds’ by way of telling our fingers out loud what to do. the great thing about a CaChoo is that it's so easy. It comes from the kid, with in simple terms the go-ahead from the instructor. this permits for open ended creativity at the kid's half to make it really his or her personal. through the use of a CaChoo even the youngest young ones can
express their specialty with their very own “signature” while not having to grasp easy methods to write.
I use CaChoos for instructing song yet they observe to any topic! The CaChoos are sufficiently small in order that they let the youngsters to nonetheless have the ability to learn the fabric at the web page whereas leaving a proud song in their achievements.
I were completely overjoyed at what innovative adaptations young ones have get a hold of and the way they've got owned “the notion of CaChooing” so simply. what's extra pleasant than crossing off an merchandise in your record? right here we do it with aptitude! let alone satisfaction, pleasure, and applause. CaChooing has helped the youngsters substitute their self-doubt with self belief and push them past simply “getting through” with a willingness to shine their paintings as though they have been a diamond!
No longer will we need to clarify what mastery is. We do exactly it and CaChoo It!

Adultismus und Epiphanismus. Institutionen der by Henriette Ortel

By Henriette Ortel

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2016 im Fachbereich Sozialpädagogik / Sozialarbeit, be aware: 2,0, Fachhochschule Potsdam, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Die vorliegende Hausarbeit befasst sich mit der Fragestellung, inwieweit sich Adultismus und Epiphanismus in der stationären Kinder- und Jugendhilfe grundsätzlich minimieren lassen, um der Herausforderung von Partizipation der Klientel im Jugendhilfekontext fachlich gerecht zu werden. Dies auch mit Fokus auf die Gesellschaft, die letztendlich die Normen prägt und Kinder und Jugendliche aufgrund ihres jungen Alters etikettiert und somit ihre Bedürfnisse und Interessen infrage stellt.

Die Gesetzmäßigkeiten in unserer Gesellschaft diskriminieren Kinder und Jugendliche in der Weise, da sie sie in eine deutliche Abhängigkeit zu den Erwachsenen stellen. Junge Menschen besitzen in Bezug auf ihre Lebensgestaltung und deren staatlichen Gegebenheiten wenig Rechte auf Mitsprache und Selbstbestimmung.

Es soll in der Auseinandersetzung mit Adultismus und Epiphanismus nicht darum gehen, jegliche pädagogischen Interventionen im Umgang mit Kindern und Jugendlichen im Rahmen der stationären Hilfen zur Erziehung infrage zu stellen, sondern darum, den Lesenden für die durch gesellschaftliche Zwänge und Gegebenheiten begünstigte Entwicklung von diskriminierenden Denkweisen zu sensibilisieren und in diesem Zusammenhang die kindliche Wahrnehmung und Perspektive zu veranschaulichen.

Auch wenn sowohl rechtliche als auch fachliche Direktiven für die Arbeit in der Kinder- und Jugendhilfe bestehen, welche vorgeben, dass die Hilfeadressaten an allen sie betreffenden Entscheidungen zu beteiligen sind, stellt dies speziell die Fachkräfte in den stationären Hilfen zur Erziehung stets vor neue Herausforderungen. Sie befinden sich inmitten des Spannungsfeldes zwischen dem Kontrollanspruch von Staat und Gesellschaft und dem individuellen Hilfeanrecht von Klienten.

Die BFI-Policy-Arena in der Schweiz: Akteurkonstellation in by Peer Pasternack,Isabell Maue

By Peer Pasternack,Isabell Maue

Die Akteurskonstellationen im Schweizer Bildungs-, ­Forschungs- und Innovationsystem (BFI) sind komplex. Rund one hundred sixty Akteure lassen sich identifizieren, die an der Vermittlung zwischen internen BFI-Leistungsprozessen einerseits und externen Leistungsansprüchen an Hochschulbildung, Forschung und Innovation andererseits beteiligt sind. In Rechnung zu stellen sind bei den Vermittlungsprozessen vor allem der hohe Kompetenzverflechtungsgrad im kooperativen Föderalismus und der hohe Abstimmungsaufwand der BFI-Politikfindung. Verfahrensprägende Bedeutung hat die Konkurrenz zwischen dem Qualitätsprogramm der Wissenschaft und dem wissenschaftsbezogenen Relevanzprogramm der Politik incl. einer politischen Priorisierung des ökonomisch fokussierten Innovationsparadigmas. Die Herausarbeitung der Akteursanordnungen, der Interaktionen, Vermittlungsinstrumente und Policy-Prozesse sowie der Steuerungswiderstände und zentralen Konflikte liefert zugleich eine Einführung in die schweizerische BFI-Politik.
