Finally, kids cannot read many of the classic books anymore that have brought people valuable lessons for years. Books should not be banned for kids because it affects kids knowledge and life lessons. If books are banned, then kids will not be able to read what they want and they will have limited knowledge. An example of this is,“challenged book is a learning experience and can help your kids define their own values and opinions of its content”(“Books For Teens”). The quote above means that if kids read beyond their reading level then, they
In the personal narrative, “A Student Asserts That Texting in Class Is Not Disruptive,” author Alex Howard argues that a complete ban of cellphones in the classroom environment should not exist. Howard argues that teachers and instructors are the main cause of disruption, rather than the culprit of texting. Howard brings up the fact that the instructors are the ones stopping class to call out the culprits, rather than the perceived notion that the student texting causes the stoppage in learning (58). He uses personal experiences as a high school student with these rules in place to support his main argument. Howard conducts testing of his hypothesis that teachers only care about the distraction caused by cell phones, and not distraction caused by other activities.
If students are “protected” from real world situations they will not succeed in life. If someone has an unrealistic expectation of the world they will not know how to handle hard situations that come their way. Schools should educate their students about the world not “protect” them from it. It is not only am educators job to teach academics it is also their job to prepare their students for their life ahead of them. In conclusion this shows that banning books shelters students from the outside
Technology is vastly changing how people communicate and interact with each other that some fear it may be changing humanity for the worse. Whether technology users are interrelating with loved ones or acquaintances and bosses, many people, especially the Millennials, prefer an always-connected life in the digital world. Two authors explore the manifestations of new communication practices through technology. In “Alone Together: Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other,” Sherry Turkle describes how technology creates a paradox- easy human connections as well as easy disconnections. Ian Frazier explores the same social disengagements due to technology in “Dearly Disconnected.” Both authors tackle the issue of connectedness
Throughout the book a lot of harsh language was used, along with ideas that may be considered inappropriate. This book should be taught to High School students across the country, and it should not be a banned book. To Kill a Mockingbird teaches students morals, and ethics. The book is still partially accurate to what some people go through even in today’s world, and what the books reads is still a part of history that should not be covered up and tucked away. To Kill a Mockingbird should still be taught in school systems, and should not be a banned book because the novel focuses on a part of history that should not be ignored.
I think parenting should have risks and this over-protective parenting style is affecting the children. Children now don 't know how to think for themselves and do things on their own because their parents are always there to baby them. The author of "The Revolution Will Not Be Supervised" absolutely has the right idea when it comes to parenting. If parents took a step back and let their children handle their own problems, the children in today 's world would function totally differently. This article has definitely changed my point of view on parenting, and I hope parents get the opportunity to read this article and actually follow through with changing their
By labeling the show as a threat to children, it validates the negative effects on young children. But rather, the show should be viewed as a typical silly and harmless internet cartoon. The parents should discuss with their children about the entertainment they view on a daily basis should not influence their conduct or actions. Furthermore, if parents are truly concerned about their children discovering this type of content, they can take further action to censor these websites by setting a restriction and blocking them. There are many solutions to combat this alleged issue, and Ellison was very narrow minded throughout her argument.
What if a child decides not to work on the assignment and uses their phone inappropriately when they aren 't supposed to? That is a very solid argument, it is also one of the biggest reasons why we don’t allow smart phones in the classroom. Alanis Morissette says. “Isn’t it ironic. After years of struggle between teachers and Students and the use of these smart phones in school, new educational trends are actually encouraging the use of these devices” This is another way of stating, smart phones are already a part of the school system and they aren’t going anywhere.
For example, teachers will not properly do what they are supposed to do. According to Akash Bagaria, “..the role of educators is to teach not to monitor kids outside of the classroom.” The teacher shouldn’t have to monitor the kids while teaching. It might become even more stressful than a regular teaching job. In addition, this law may be misused. According to Jim Tharayil, “using something else to pull you over and then using this to look through your cellphone.” Furthermore, they should have permit to search you.
Bill Gates stated, “Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is the most important.” Technology is any sort of electronic device can access the internet. Technology should not be used for everything. It should be used as little as possible as it negatively affects children. The teacher should and should always be more important than the technology.
