Question and answer
What are the salient characteristics of elementary pupils and the implications of it to the learning-teaching process
The salient characteristics of today's students include their diversity in age, socioeconomic status, gender, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, and learning and physical ability. [ Their diversity may be greater today than at any times in the history of American higher education. Indeed, the "traditional" college student- white, male, 18- to 20-years old, attending a four-year, liberal
arts college full-time, and living on campus- is now in the minority in higher education. In addition to those students, today's college population also includes significant proportions of older students returning to school due to changes in the economy, women's roles, and work environments. Over half of the undergraduate population is over 21; 41% are over 24 (National Center for Education Statistics, 1994). ]

In the beginning, for hundreds of thousands of years, children educated themselves through self-directed play and exploration.

For various reasons, some religious and some secular, the idea of universal, compulsory education arose and gradually spread. Education was understood as inculcation.

With the rise of schooling, people began to think of learning as children's work. The same power-assertive methods that had been used to make children work in fields and factories were quite naturally transferred to the classroom.

In recent times, the methods of schooling have become less harsh, but basic assumptions have not changed. Learning continues to be defined as children's work, and power assertive means are used to make children do that work.

How the students interact with teacher and other adults?
Weegy: Conversational analysts place great emphasis on the fact that conversation is a participant-managed system in which there is a constant process of adjustment between participants to ensure that real communication takes place. [ This is particularly true when communication is between members of different cultures such as students and teachers. ] (More)
