Collegiate Eases In “College Pressures,” from The Seagull Reader: Essays, William Zinsser explains the stress and obstacles college students face, he was a master at Branford College and was exposed to college student’s breakdowns. In the essay Zinsser explains that college students face four different types of pressures: economic pressure, parental pressure, peer pressure, and self-induced pressure. Zinsser is master of Branford College and he uses his first hand experiences with students to explain how the four types of pressures effect students. College students are too worried about their future and obsess over grades that they miss out on experiencing college to the fullest degree.
Zinsser starts off the article by giving the reader examples of notes, which students would leave for their Dean. One of many from a random student was, “I desperately need a dean’s excuse for my chem midterm which will begin in 1 hour” (Zinsser 1). Right after he gives the reader a couple examples, which shows emphasis on his topic, and then went on to explain what they were. He states that the notes were of, “men and women who belong to Branford College…and the messages are just a few of the hundreds that they left their dean, Carlos Hortas- - often slipped under his door at 4 a.m. - - last year” (Zinsser 1). As you can see, Zinsser went straight into his article about the pressures faced by undergraduates.
During lunch hours at Selinsgrove Area High School, student Kalie Jimison, 18, was approached by Jason Heiser, a well-respected social studies teacher, regarding her right hand, middle finger ring. Connecting jewelry to religion, Heiser mistook Jimison as a satanic worshiper offering her to join him in the ritual of devotion. Heiser is a known ghost hunter and has reported that he can talk to the dead spirits. Spotted wandering around with his hands bound together, students have begun to feel startled with is behavior. Within his classroom, satanic symbols are hidden within all four corners in addition with one along the middle of one wall, creating a pentagram.
In the documentary Freakonomics, there were many key points to the advantages of economy in our society that could be the reasons from lowering crime rates, to incentives that allow students finishing schools and so on. I was amazed by the perception of how names can affect a person judgments on the person who they never met. Although, names cannot tell whether the person can be successful or a failure in a life, but in our American culture is an important way for institutionalized racism. An example that the documentary stated was the experiment by the Harvard professor, who had resumes with white names and black names applying for the same job with the same resumes, and how that whites are 30% likely to get called for the job than the black.
He uncovered 980 violations of these laws among the 70 businesses that he studied; ninety percent of the corporations were habitual offenders, with four or more violations. Sutherland relied on differential association theory to explain these crimes, arguing that young executives learn definitions favorable to the violation of the law through the routines of business practice. He considered white-collar crime a greater threat to society than street crime because the former promotes cynicism and distrust of basic social
“Bartleby, the Scrivener”, by Herman Melville uses dehumanization in his story by hiring four new employees. The nameless lawyer hires one particular employee whose name is Bartleby who starts off working tirelessly. One day the nameless lawyer asked Bartleby to examine some papers with him and by the lawyer’s surprise Bartleby replied, “I would prefer not to.” The lawyer then was shocked by Bartleby’s answer, he said that his ears have deceived him. Melville is using Bartleby as a symbol of the lower class workers in a class-divided society, and he shows how these workers are viewed.
There were people from different backgrounds and ethics believes. The group varies from college graduates to some high school dropouts. I was not as opened minded that people with corporate jobs visits this kind of meeting, therefore I was amazed at the high level of members that function at there work place being a addict to alcohol and they approach used. During my group session I was focused on what the leader was teaching the addicts. They read step eight from their book.
social media from the event showed students’s faces covered in charcoal. It does not make sense to have a diversity requirement part of California students education, if incidents like these keep happening. A student can be forced to take a diversity class, and complete assignments’s for that class, but for the student to broaden their perspective and actively engage in class, is up to each individual student. When white students were asked about their Asian American, Latino and Black peers, a study conducted at Baylor University said “Asian American students are ‘cold but competent.’
As required by State regulations for Testing Coordinators, I am providing documentation of a testing issue that was brought to your attention on Friday, 4/22/16. On Friday, April 22nd during the Section 2 of the ELA Milestone test, Mr. Barbain was found in violation of the testing roles and responsibilities of Examiners. It was reported to me that a student in Mr. Barbain 's class was having an issue and Mrs. Anderson, Special Education Director, was called to assist with the student. Upon entering the classroom, Mrs. Anderson found the students to be loud and disruptive and having trouble testing while the teacher sat at his desk talking with a co-worker (Mr. Worthy).
Standardized testing are giving in many areas of the nation According to a article by “The Washington Post” “The study analyzed tests given in 66 urban districts in the 2014-2015 school year. It did not count quizzes or tests created by classroom teachers, and it did not address the amount of time schools devote to test preparation”(Layton Lyndsey). Teachers are being evaluated by students and how well they do on the standardized test. Several states have tied student performance to teacher evaluation. The National Council on Teacher Quality reported in January 2014 that “about
We split the actual presentation of how to interview among four members. The four parts of the presentation included finding experts, finding non-experts, conducting an interview and email interviews. The fifth member was in charge of creating and conducting the in class activity that followed the presentation. When this process concluded, I was given the role of delivering how to do an interview over email. Most of the communication for the project occurred over the Groupme app.
Ph.D. Charlotte Witvliet at Hope College, along with her colleagues, hooked up seventy-one student participants (36 female & 35 male) to monitors in order to examine the physiological and emotional effects of imagining hurtful memories and harboring a grudge as opposed to exhibiting forgiveness to personal offenders. Each student participant was asked to complete a two-part test. First they were asked to imagine a particular person that they assigned blame to for either offending or hurting them, followed by a questionnaire about the nature of the offense and response to it. Then each student participant was asked to actively imagine either forgiving or not forgiving (the independent variables) the perpetrator.

In the 1988 film Stand and Deliver, high school mathematics teacher Mr. Escalante embarks on a mission to teach calculus to his students , despite the difficult circumstances each of his students face. Throughout the movie, he pushes himself, his class, and his family to their limits, often putting in extra hours at school, even if it could hurt his health. When his entire class successfully passed the AP exam, he and his students faced more difficulties when the community and the administration accused them of cheating on the test. However, Mr. Escalante worked even harder, and prepared his class to take the exam a second time, which his entire class passed once again, proving that they were highly skilled mathematicians, despite their poverty.
This further proves the necessity of learning how to exchange ideas with others before entering the real world. In addition, educational systems should expose students to STEM fields. Today’s society revolves around technology, making it advantageous to understand how to use it. Science, engineering, and mathematics respectively teach the fundamental laws of the universe, problem solving, and how to perform basic calculations. Through education, students should gain utilitarian
