Besides, school wasn't that easy for me because I didn't know English and I couldn't communicate with the people around me nor the teachers. I was the only kid who looks different in my class and has no ideas what the teacher is talking about. It was uncomfortable for me to be around my classmates, but everyone in the class seems to be nice to me because I was the new kid. They didn’t have problems with me and I didn’t have problems with them. As time goes on, I began to feel
If students and others disregard the topic that children shouldn’t get paid for good grades, it will be their own problem and it can negatively affect a students future due to not having certain life skills and will only end up hurting them in the long run. Children should most likely not be paid for grades because so many negative outcomes are to follow with it and it is just seen as a good deal in the short
I started to analyze what my options were and dropping out of school is probably one of the easiest options when you are overwhelmed by confusion. I was no longer interested in educating myself. I felt guilt, fear and ashamed because of the bad choices I made towards my education. Perhaps this feeling is probably what many students feel when English is not their primary language, I never prioritized my education. On multiple occasions, I found myself
For Chin community’s children, many people came to the United States at a young age that they barely know anything about their culture. It was hard for them to live in a mix-cultures because they are comfortable with the American culture, yet they also acquire to live with their parents’ culture. However, inside of their household, their parents taught them their culture’s tradition and show them certain part of the tradition. Those lessons make kids know about their own culture and be able to understand in many ways including language barrier that they have. Thous, a few children who did not learn their native culture also bear a hard time dealing with all these native-new-cultures things.
I was astounded on how differently life is in America compared to where I came from. I was a novice to America and an immigrant that knew nothing about education. Therefore, I started second grade as a non-English speaker. That being the case, English was very difficult for me in both learning and pronunciation. I struggled a lot not only in English, but trying to adapt to this new life as well.
It also shows that a lot of teachers are not heard of in this community. This quote basically means, that everything related to school was shamed upon and illegal in the community. The people in the community have no known thoughts that they deal with in the their mind. The people in the community have really clueless and have short term memory.The people in Fahrenheit 451 are completely clueless about life. They also seem like the have Alzheimer's.
This made an such a profound impact on her language that she did not perform as well in English as she did in science and math classes. Her teachers decided to steer her away from English, and the possibility of her becoming a writer shrank significantly. This is often true for many who end up speaking a non-standardized English in the United States; they are seen as unable to do certain things such as become writers or public speakers. Only when these non-standardized English speakers trains themselves to speak “perfect English” are they seen as successful “scholars of English or literature” in the eyes of the public. 6.
Though it may not seem obvious, the school shows a distinct lack of care for its pupils, they have introduced new systems of learning, people who are not acquainted with the area are chosen to teach there, causing different, more obvious problems with the students. Learning can also be associated with a loss of innocence because ignorance and innocence go hand in hand: the less you know, the less likely you are to try something because you don’t even know of the certain thing, and you know things that make you less innocent in the first place. All in all, the story is based around racism and the Great depression and other such themes. The school represents many of these things, innocence, racism and depression. On the opposite side of the same coin, it could also represent many good things about this period of time, but it exuded these characteristics the most.
I believe lower-class communities are not offered the same opportunities as upper-class. However, there are certain opportunities that are offered in these communities and individuals choose not to take advantage of it, because it is easier to get the money than to work for the money, i.e. welfare. I think it affects the younger population the most because they don’t have encouragement all around. For instance, they might have great programs in the community, counselors who believe in them, teachers who are supportive, but if they go home to a parent who is mentally abusing them and badgering them, then they will feel worthless because that person whom they believe and have trusted their whole life is right, they will never amount to nothing.
CHAPTER 2 • Cause/s of Failures Students get poor grades involve external factors, like the subject matter is too challenging that makes the students unable to follow in the discussion. The other reasons have to with poor attitudes, like not doing homework dillydallying, and skipping class. Lastly, there are reasons related to personal issues, such as test anxiety and concentrating problems. (Kurtus, 2012) • Student-related Factors • Not Ready for College Students aren’t prepared for post-secondary work and lack foundational skills that hinder to achieve passing grades. Many students don’t learn those skills in grade school and high school, that when they reach college they aren’t ready for the demands of being a college student (“Why Do Students Fail?
