Students Have High Risk Of Sustaining Injuries In School

2

One morning earlier this month, two vehicles struck a 13-year-old Orange County boy as he walked to school. The pedestrian accident occurred at some time around 7:30 a.m. in the 18900 block of Spring Street near Santiago Middle School, the school in which the boy attended. A westbound Toyota 4Runner struck the boy first, the impact throwing him into opposite lanes of traffic. An eastbound Land Rover Discovery was the second vehicle to strike the boy.

“He suffered moderate injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital”, explains Jim Ballidis, a California injury attorney.

Unfortunately, accidents that occur around schools are all too common. Hurried drivers, bicyclists, skateboarders, and pedestrians can be a dangerous combination. Moreover, the activities students engage in while at school can be dangerous without proper instruction and supervision.

Between 10% and 25% of the more than 14 million unintentional injuries to children each year happen on school premises. That’s not too surprising since more than 53 million children in America spend almost a quarter of their waking hours on school property.

Recently a verdict here in Orange County Superior Court documented the clash between the Huntington Beach City School District and the Camm family. The suit claimed that Samuel Camm had cut off his thumb while using the school’s band saw in his woodshop class. Additionally, there were reports that the saw was “defective and dangerous.” The school settled privately and the undisclosed settlement will pay for the various surgeries and accrued medical bills.

Last November, 15-year-old North High School student Zachary Kimura and his parents, David and Wanda, filed a negligence claim against the Torrance Unified School District after he suffered first- and second-degree burns on his face, neck, arms, and hands during an accident in one of the classrooms.

On Friday, October 22, students and staff members were cooking Korean barbeque on three butane stoves when one of the stoves malfunctioned, igniting into a fireball 6 feet wide and 12 feet high, reported the Daily Breeze. Kimura, who had purchased a plate of food and was waiting in line, and several other students were injured by the blast. His claim alleges that the school district neglected to take precautions to protect the students, to provide proper supervision, and to obtain permits to use the stoves in the classroom.

Due to the relatively high risk students have of suffering injuries, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CDC, has created a new school health brochure. School staff and students will find safety tips and guidelines for preventing unintentional injuries in the 2010 National Health Objectives.

A free, downloadable version of the brochure can be found at the CDC’s website

Scientific Research Into The Benefits Of Montessori Education

1

The University of Virginia conducted a variety of studies on academic performance, social skills, behavioral tendencies and psychological norms of Montessori students who were five and twelve years of age. They then did comparable research on non-Montessori school children of the same ages. The study was recently published in the academic journal Science by Dr Angeline Lillard, one of the universitys professors of psychology at their Charlottesville campus. The results of the study lead to surprising headlines on mainstream media sources such as the Guardian in the United Kingdom and CBS in the United States.

In brief, the Montessori Method was developed over nearly four decades by the education and psychology specialist Maria Montessori. Her research and implementation of what is now the Montessori Method started at the beginning of the 20th century and has continued to be implemented in its purist forms and in other cases contextually adapted to meet social and cultural norms. The core principles stay the same regardless of contextualization though. First and foremost, the student is provided a safe and stimulating environment where they are granted the authority to follow their natural instinct to gravitate towards wanting to learn. Teachers guide students through the self-directed learning process and play the role as the facilitator and observer more so than the traditional teacher model. Sharing, fairness and inter-age socialization are encouraged while the system downplays the need for competition and stress in the classroom. Testing and grading is not a standard within the original methodology, but in countries such as the United States, children do complete the national standard exams. The culture of a Montessori school is sharply different than non-Montessori schools but the goal of educating the students is the same. But which is more effective?

Researchers from The University of Virginia found that the five year olds at Montessori schools had better math and reading skills and tested better than those pupils at public and non-Montessori private schools. Even without regular testing (as in public schools), the Montessori students were able to spell, utilize grammar and execute punctuation better. Their socialization and problem solving skills were vastly more developed over their counterparts as well.

Although Montessori twelve year olds scored similarly in math and reading skills on examinations, those who were observed and tested were significantly more creative and sophisticated with their writing skills. But due to the inter-age interaction and methodology of the Montessori school system, children demonstrated a more secure sense of self, and scored much higher on social and behavioral tests.

The research suggests that the Montessori Method is in fact the better education system, but Dr. Lillards main conclusion is that she is looking forward to further researching the topic nationally and potentially internationally to come up with more conclusive evidence.

College Student Credit Cards Friend or Foe

11

There is much debate surrounding college student credit cards. Some swear up and down that they’re a disaster waiting to happen while others vehemently object and insist they are a must-have financial tool for college students. Which side is right?

When deciding whether college student credit cards are good or bad, you need to weigh the facts. These three truths will help you come to your own conclusion.

1. Aggressive Marketing

College student credit cards have gotten a bad rap when it comes to their marketing tactics — and some would say that it’s for good reason. You can’t hit a single college campus without coming across at least one application for college student credit cards.

That being said, while the applications are definitely readily available (to put it lightly), no one is forcing college students to sign the application. It’s the responsibility of a parent to instruct their children on wise financial decisions.

The credit card companies are marketing their product — that’s what they do. Parents need to do their part and make sure that they instruct their children in the ways of the credit world.

2. They’ve Got to Grow Up Sometime

Everyone has to grow up sooner or later and college student credit cards can provide some priceless lessons in the world of adult finance. For the first time, college students can be responsible for their own spending and their own monthly bills.

Yes, college student credit cards can provide the potential for disaster (but so can a number of situations that students encounter in college). Just because student credit cards have the potential to be misused, it doesn’t mean that they will be. Have some faith in today’s college students!

3. Paving the Way

Once a college student graduates, they’re going to need some things (a place to live and a car to name a few) and they’re going to need credit to get the things they need. If they don’t start building their credit history in college, when are they supposed to do it?

If a college student wants to be completely prepared when they graduate, they’re going to need to work on building a solid credit history while they’re in school. College student credit cards can be the means to that end.

If you know a college student (or are a college student) who has been debating about whether college student credit cards are good or bad, consider the above three facts and remember, it’s not college student credit cards themselves that are good are bad — it is who is using them and how they are being used that make the difference.

Modern Family Review Education & Growth

9

I always think one of the most appealing things of The United States is that US parents are far more open in education. Instead of just talking to their children unilaterally, they pay more attention to the conversation between they and their children.

It isn’t just for fun to watch US TV shows. Sometimes it is like a kind of experience. Placing myself into the episodes, and feeling some of their education and inspiration that I have never had. Maybe it could make up some of the deficiency in my childhood. But just maybe…

Like other situation comedies, Modern Family can not escape from common family routine such as trivial home matters, couples conflicts, children growing problems and discords between daughter and stepmother. And although there are fights and conflicts, but every one in the big family loves each other, that the final ending of every episode is always happy.

Even if the editors keep creating topics, making up scenarios, we can always see through these pieces of facts the American educational culture and daily life. And I am always touched by the episodes and can’t help thinking how it could be if my parents had treated me like these…

Little Manny ridiculed by his classmates at school. His old stepfather knew that himself was not good at persuasion, so he called his son Mitchell to see meteor showers with him and Manny and try to persuade Manny by the way. Although teased by Manny, Mitchell sat down and told Manny that he had also been ridiculed by others as a child. Sometimes it is very strange that we hated to be isolated at childhood, but almost over one night, suddenly every one wanted to be different. Mitchell did not pretend to be profound, but said the homely words. This really deserves further thought.

I remember in one episode of Friends, Phoebe said that he doesn’t believe Darwin’s evolution theory. As a paleontologist, Ross felt that he had to persuade Phoebe. But Phoebe said, however, I know the theory of evolution makes sense, but why do I have to believe? Even if there is so much evidence and so many people who believe in it, but is it certainly right? Then Ross scratched his head, didn’t speak any longer, and packed up and left. I think this conveys determination of anti-authority and not blindly following the majority. Althouth this power is quite small and no body support it, but I still stick to my opinion.

Tips for Youth Bible Study

19

Too many young people think that Bible study is boring and that they have plenty of time to learn and follow the word of God once they are an adult. This is not true, and a lie that Satan uses to stop young people from knowing and loving God. Bible study is exciting because learning and following the word of God. A person is never too young to understand the word of the Lord and apply its message to their life.

Young people can find many rewards from the Bible. God has promised many rewards to those who find him through His words and prayer. He has promised Strength (Isaiah 40:29-31), Peace (Psalm 119:165), Joy (Psalm 16:11), Success (Joshua 1:8), Stability (Psalm 16:8-9), Answered prayer (John 15:7), Personal testimony (Acts 4:13).

Youth Bible study does not have to be complicated. There are three important steps that a youth Bible study group should follow to understand the Lords word. They should observe Gods word and see the message in the passage. Then they should then interpret the meaning of the text as it applies to their life and finally apply the message to themselves by asking what the passage wants them to do.

When you observe the passage ask who is in the story, who is writing and who is being written to. Look for what is being communicated, the cause, affects and meaning in the words. Put yourself in the passage and think about your reactions to what is being said and what the words mean to you.

In order to interpret the Bibles message ask why the writer said the words, why they are significant, and what is important about the words. Finding the importance of the words as they are written will help you to find the importance of the words in your own life.

To figure out how a passage can be applied a student Bible study group should focus on taking the message and working it in to their actions at home, at school, and everywhere else. They should think about the changes they should make or actions they should take to embrace the message.

The goal of teen and youth group Bible study should be to develop a love and understanding of Gods word. He messages of His word will help young people to navigate the confusing world of today with lessons that will teach them how to love and revere God. Young people can show their love of God by following John 5:3 and joyfully obeying his commands.

Renting a House for Students

10

If you are a student who goes for learning abroad, then the primary things that you will need to concern for yourself is finding houses for rent. Your living accommodations will make a big impact on your education, and you need to make sure that you take the time to find the best housing for your needs.

If you’re fortunate enough to live at home with your parents during your education, that’s great. However, for those who are striking out on their own, choosing a rental house is going to be important. You can find your options in many different ways, depending on what you want and need.

Some people search for house on rent by first searching for flat mates. If you can’t afford to pay the full price for a rental, it’s often easier to find other people seeking mates or a house to live in. In this case, you can often pair up or find a couple of flat mates and then go forward to find a house together.

Many students stay at university and college hostels during their first year. This is a great way to first familiarize yourself with the education facility you are studying at. It also makes new friends whom you can group together with to find a rental house during your second and subsequent years.

After all, it’s much easier to know what you can afford when you have your flat mates already picked out. Alternatively, you can also find a house that you can live in that is already occupied by people looking for another flat mate.

If you’re searching for a house of your own or houses to rent with others, you will need to make sure that you consider a few things besides the cost of the home. What you can afford is very important; but it is not the only deciding factor. You should also consider the location to your education facility, nearby public transport if you don’t have your own vehicle.

Some houses will rent by the week or month while others will want to let them for a year at a time. Additionally, it is a good idea to draft a budget before you commit to a particular place. Also think about how much money you will need for food each week. This financial exercise will give you a good estimate of what you can afford. You should also consider the other expenses so that you can estimate your expenditures beforehand.
