On the contrary, when a text has difficult language, when students do not participate, and when it is not authentic, it can make it more difficult for students to learn. In my opinion, the medium that is most effective is when the text is easily understandable, such as in No Fear Shakespeare. Being able to view a modern translation of the text can help students grasp a better understanding of the story. However, when the text has difficult language, it can be troublesome for students to learn anything while reading. Although it could build your vocabulary, it is still difficult for students to read while learning at the same time.
She states “If students pursued education for its own sake… they would try to produce academic work that increases learning… But many students don’t especially value the process of classroom learning” (Blum 1,2). Therefore, instructors will struggle to teach the value in learning, and Students will continue to plagiarize because there is more concern about the product (the grade) than the process. Over all, students don’t grasp the gravity of plagiarism and need to be taught the correct ways to avoid it. Professors should not assume that students simply understand how to cite and know when and where to give credit too other writers work (Blum 3). This translates that students and professors need more encouragement and organization to decrease the thought of plagiarism and create better self- confidence for students to import their own work into
They often feel rushed in teaching all the required information in one school year because of the time spent reviewing forgotten information (Priddy). Teachers are also pressured to cover certain lessons and topic for each grade. With time spent reviewing lost information they feel rushed to catch up and meet the requirements. Students are stressed during the school year because they have too few breaks. Stress from school can lead students to a lack of motivation.
Many students need to have these classes because it may be their only motivation to stay in school. Teachers are told that they need to have differentiated learning, but that is hard to do when students need to constantly be drilling for math and reading passages. There is only so much differentiation that a teacher can do. With the standardizing of curriculum, the material has become less relevant and students need to be able to see how the material they are learning is going to benefit them in the long run. Kids who are living in poverty need more time, energy, love, and support than upper-class students, and the public school education system is not able to give them that.
One of the hardest parts in education for the students is to get the invitation from their teachers. Even without the invitation to education some students will thrive to do well for themselves, educationally and personally. It is theoretically impossible for a teacher to make sure every student gets the necessary push they need. Often times, the students who are struggling with their education will get the necessary push before the students who are succeeding. I know this first-hand how hard it is to get the invitation to education after succeeding most of my educational
I agree with her because we aren’t all perfect and sometimes we need that extra lesson or we need to repeat the material again. In middle school some of my friends were afraid of flunking the grade because they didn’t want to repeat the grade and of embarrassment. I believe that make them repeat
The accountability of the scores is meant to encourage teachers to adopt better and more effective methods of teaching, as well as to urge students to work harder. However the effects are more detrimental. Because of testing, students are more likely to be frustrated and discouraged at having to move so fast to cover all the ground needed. If a student is having a bad day or just is not a good test taker, all anyone can say is “tough luck.” The teachers will only focus on the select subjects tested on, and then only the select aspects they believe will be covered in the testing. Depending on how desperate a teacher is for good test scores, inappropriate preparations can be made before testing, sometimes even to the point of cheating.
That causes a student a lot of stress with all the hard work they do during the years it seems like a waste when it comes down to a test to graduate it can be very discouraging. So in conclusion i feel Standardized tests can hinder more than help our students by limiting teaching, creating stress when it comes to graduating, putting a limit on learning for the student and teaching for the teachers. We need to have a second look at the real benefit of Standardized tests and if it is worth our students self
Explaining and clarifying is a very important strategy, especially for children who struggle to understand. Teaching assistant can teach the students to clarify by focusing their attention on reasons why the text is difficult; to understand and to notice when they don’t understand; to clarify parts of the text which have confused them; to monitor their comprehension as they read, and to correct it when needed. Students should notice when they don’t understand the text; they can’t read a word, or don’t understand a word; they can’t figure out how the text is set up. Teaching assistant can teach students to use fix-up strategies to fix the problem when they don’t understand the text; to think about what they know; to stop and think about what they have already read; to reread. Teaching assistant can explain what to do if children can’t read a word, or don’t understand a word: They should teach them to break words down, look for little words inside big words, look for base or root words, prefixes, or suffixes etc; to keep reading or rereading to see if they can get a sense of the definition from the text.
As the test tells, I am a person who likes challenges. However, finding a proper article for writing the rhetorical analysis was very difficult for I had to find an article which has enough rhetorical devices to be analyzed. As for the writing process, it’s much easier. I just needed to copy some sentences, point out the rhetorical devices and give my reasons. Therefore, writing the rhetorical analysis is a little easy and boring compared to writing other essays.
Primarily, stress can affect a student’s memory, causing them to have a hard time remembering the details about the topic. Secondly, timed tests can create negative messages about the subject. Lastly, students are so focused on the time constraint that they often don’t show their full abilities. While some opposers may tell you that timed tests are great to see who knows the material and
Because of the pressure it puts on the taker, many people believe that it should be completely abolished; this however is a total over reaction to the situation. Yes it is true that a very important test can cause stress, but we would not have to be taking it if it was not important. standardized testing it an essential tool for judging a student skill level. If it was removed it would allow people who are not cut out or not ready for collage to enter collage, this would cause a fault to form in the education system that could be detrimental to the future generations. Tests are a part of learning; they are used to find out if a student has retained the information that has been given to them.
People see that confusion and disorientation as something bad and has always made them uncomfortable and embarrassed, but maybe that might not be a bad thing, according to “Higher Education Through Discombobulation” by Betsy Chitwood. She says that confusion and disorientation leads to a learning process that more people should use because it has help a lot in their learning. She quoted “ Confusion and disorientation are important in the learning process because these emotions force us to go beyond what we know in search of answers”. Having in answer to a problem make us feel great accomplish but knowing that the process will be confusion even frustrated can lead to a better understand and will be harder to forget. And problem that you have
