Time to Sign Programs Enhance Learning and Development
"When it comes to picking up on warning signs that their child is having difficulty in school, parents are pretty intuitive, and they want to act. But how? The common sense notion that some children need more instructional time than others to master the curriculum is supported by research and theory.
If all students are to achieve to gradelevel standards, every student must receive the specific support that he or she needs as a learner, including extra time with individual attention and precisely focused instruction. Studies show that students who continue to struggle in school without intervention compound their learning losses into a larger deficit that is difficult to remediate. In contrast, carefully tailored learning interventions can yield quite remarkable and swift progress in overcoming learning obstacles, as evidenced in Melissa’s experience working with a reading tutor."
This exerpt is from the www.2.ed.gov website "Innovations in Education: Creating Strong Supplemental Educational Services Programs", which is public domain information.
So, is it really MORE time that is needed? What can we use to make sure that the time spent in school is effective and precisely focused? We have behavior issues, outside conflicts and more that cause Children not to perform to their greatest selves. Then instead of trying to find out what is wrong with the system, we blame the educators.
I am here to tell you that the system and the tools that we are using need revamping. Time to Sign, Inc has been creating curriculum and programs that compliment the curricula that we are currently using in our school systems and it is nothing more for the educators to learn. This is a program that can be learned WITH the students - and learn better ways to retain the information. (not just study to pass a test!)
Within this document, it describes what a great Supplemental Education Service should do:
Embrace the Spirit of SES • Set a positive tone. • Staff SES strategically within the organizational structure. • Put a plan in place. • Review results and improve process. • Identify barriers to parent participation. • Establish new roles and structures. • Make SES a complementary part of ongoing extended learning programs. • Strengthen parent advisory groups and partnerships. Build Relationships with Providers • Find out about providers who will serve your district. • Work out provider access to facilities. • Use a contract that sets clear expectations. • Increase communication and coordination between providers and schools. • Expand the number and type of providers in the district. Reach Out to Inform Parents • Communicate options clearly. • Enlist schools in a campaign to reach parents. • Expand communication channels. • Increase community involvement in getting the word out. Set Clear Goals and Track Progress • Use detailed and specific student learning plan forms. • Share data and set student goals aligned with the district’s instructional program. • Monitor attendance. • Set up and use regular progress reports to inform teachers and parents. • Evaluate student progress on district assessments. • Survey parents. • Reflect on implementation and adjust efforts based on formative feedback.
All of this is what Time to Sign, Inc has created. Dr H received his doctorate of Education degree from Regent University and his Masters of Administration Degree from Radford University.
