More information about the Commonwealth Online Learning Institute is available at http://www.commlearnonline.com

The US Department of Education s What Works Clearinghouse (WWC) education research initiative states that the most important goal for literacy instruction is to increase student s ability to comprehend difficult text. It provides the teacher with a clear focus and understanding of the areas the student may be having trouble in.

The Commonwealth Online Learning Institute s strategy for vocabulary literacy is built on three pillars based on the WWC goal Teach to Learn, Teach to Understand, and Learning & Understanding Content. These three strategies are designed to optimize the learning and engagement process between teachers and students with a view to improving reading ability, problem-solving skills, and strengthening decision-making.

The Boston vocabulary literacy online institute emphasizes the need to help new independent readers by choosing favorite books as an approach to vocabulary development. The institute also recommends that educators tap into cultural backgrounds to help children identify different words for a specific object, progress to understanding content, and teach methods of literary self-expression.

The institute offers facilitated courses such as Building Vocabulary With State Standards and self-paced SP Academic And Domain Specific Vocabulary . These courses are aimed to train and empower educators to help their students develop reading comprehension and communication skills and encourage word-learning and usage strategies.

According to a spokesperson for the Boston online education resource center, We look forward to helping teachers increase their students engagement in the learning process and are happy to recommend these strategies through our courses.

The Commonwealth Online Learning Institute is supported by the Stratford Foundation, an educational resource nonprofit that funds and operates the Commonwealth Learning Center and the Professional Training Institute. The Commonwealth Learning Online Institute is designed as an online learning resource for teachers of schoolchildren.

Missouri governor signs bill banning abortions at 8 weeks

May 24, 2019

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missouri Gov. Mike Parson on Friday signed a bill that bans abortions on or beyond the eighth week of pregnancy without exceptions for cases of rape or incest, making it among the most restrictive abortion policies in the nation. Under the law that comes into force Aug. 28, doctors who violate the eight-week cutoff could face five to 15 years in prison. Women who terminate their pregnancies cannot be prosecuted. A legal challenge is expected, although it's unclear when that might occur. The measure includes exceptions for medical emergencies, such as when there is a risk...

May 24, 2019

WASHINGTON — A House GOP conservative complaining of Washington's free-spending and opaque ways blocked a long-overdue $19 billion disaster aid bill on Friday, extending a tempest over hurricane and flood relief that has left the measure meandering for months.

Ted Cruz, objected to speeding the measure through a nearly empty chamber, also complaining that it does not contain any of President Donald trump's $4.5 billion request for dealing with a migrant refugee crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border. "It is a bill that that includes nothing to address the international...

NEW YORK — Did you get a 7% raise last year? Congratulations, yours was in line with what CEOs at the biggest companies got. But for chief executives, that 7% was roughly $800,000. Pay for CEOs at S&P 500 companies rose to a median of $12 million last year, including salary, stock and other compensation, according to data analyzed by Equilar for The Associated Press. The eight-figure packages continue to rise as companies tie more of their CEOs' pay to their stock prices, which are still near record levels, and as profits hit an all-time high last year due to...

May 24, 2019

NEW YORK — U.S. stocks rebounded in morning trading on Wall Street Friday, but were still on track for a third straight week of losses. The market has been swaying between gains and losses all week as investors face the prospect that the trade war between the U.S. and China will drag on longer than anticipated. Trading has been volatile since the dispute escalated earlier this month, with both sides taking measures to raise tariffs on each other's goods.
