If it passes, the new bill would require schools to teach CPR and the use of defibrillators to students at least one time between grades 7 and 12.

(NaturalNews) Homeschooling, once steeped in negativity and subject to eyebrow-raising naysayers, is fast-sweeping the nation as an alternative educational method that comes with higher graduation rates than traditional schooling.(1) In fact, there are approximately 2.2 million students in the United States who receive home education, and experts note that its popularity has continued, rather than waned, through the years.

Homeschooled children have higher graduation rates, more social prowess

These students have been found to score up to 30 percentile points above public-school students on standardized academic achievement tests.(2) With homeschooling, children are taught under the direction of family members who maintain that learning at home allows youngsters to obtain customized instruction that public schools do not regularly provide, while simultaneously strengthening family relationships in a safe environment.(2) Higher graduation rates, test scores among homeschooled children.

The mainstream perception of homeschool students is that they are an antisocial bunch, toiling away lonely hours at a kitchen table with only their parents for friends.

But homeschoolers themselves will tell you that socialization—the “S-word,” as some call it—is really a nonissue. “Socialization is always the hot topic,” says Kate Fridkis, an adult who was unschooled until she was college age. Fridkis, who blogs about homeschooling at, says that when she tells people she was homeschooled, they often respond by asking if she had any friends. “People seem to translate the term [homeschooling] literally into ‘school in the home,'” she says.

“But you’re actually socializing so much more than your average kid who’s sitting in class all day.” For Fridkis, homeschooling gave her the freedom to immerse herself in her community—and to develop relationships with people who were outside of her age group. National Home Education Research Institute president Brian Ray agrees. ‎ Research Facts on Homeschooling. Brian D.

Second Language Acquisition Theories. Over the past three decades a number of different theories of second language acquisition have been formed in an effort to provide explanations as to how language learning takes place, to identify the variables responsible for second language acquisition and to offer guidance to second language teachers.

Second Language Acquisition Theories

Each theory accounts for language acquisition from a different perspective so some criteria are needed in order to classify and evaluate each theory. Theories of second language acquisition can be classified according to different criteria. According to their form theories can be classified along a continuum with ‘deductive’ on one end and ‘inductive’ on the other. Theories following the deductive approach contain concepts and constructs that are assumed to be true without proof. These are the axioms of the theory. Unlike the deductive approach, the inductive approach does not begin with axioms. With regard to the content, theories are distinguished into ‘macro’ and ‘micro’ theories.

J’ai croisé le travail de Paul Axtell que je vous livre ici. Pour nous habituer à préparer nos petits et presque grands à une vie riche, positivement réaliste, et en paix avec eux-mêmes.
