The reason why students should read more challenging novels are because they learn new things, and they could also learn how to act in a certain situation based on the type of challenging story they read. Many people also feel that this book is irrelevant to student’s lives. However, kids should learn what life would be like for kids at their age in a different time period. Like what was stated before, in a history class, when we learn about the history, we learn about the straight facts, not as much of the personal lives of people living in that time. Since the novel is showing the personal recollections of one boy in the time period, students can identify the similarities between the two lessons.
Restricted but not Forgotten Literature, old or modern, has always been subject to criticism and judgement due to the issues that exist within classic novels. Whether the issue contains profanity, violence, or content too mature for young readers, concerned parents and students continue to threaten to ban and forget award-winning books’ existences. Unfortunately for Ken Kesey’s classic, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, restricting the novel is potentially the only course of action. While the book displays violence unsuitable for high school curriculums, libraries must continue to include Ken Kesey’s classic novel. Although the novel teaches valuable life lessons about individuality and is mild compared to modern media, high school curriculums
Make High School Great Again Most adults remember high school as the best years of their lives; however, this is not the reality for students today. The majority of teenagers would agree that high school is currently dreadful, mainly due to the outrageous bulk of homework they receive each night. Homework is now consuming students’ lives, leaving no free time to have fun, attend extracurricular events, sports games etc. Homework is becoming a popular public debate because of the adverse effects it has on America’s teens. In fact, many studies have proven that abolishing homework has a positive outcome.
However, evidence shows that standardized tests lead to stress, most importantly, among teenagers, and most information is not carried on past high school. Our current test-driven curriculum should be replaced with a teaching-learning model that better prepares students for adulthood. Using standardized tests as the principle measuring tool of a student’s success is misleading the future leaders of our country to focus more on preparation for these tests that ill-prepare young people for the true problems and questions in the real world. Standardized tests, such as the ACT and the SAT, have been used for over fifty years. However, more, now than ever, standardized tests have become a huge role in a student’s education and future.
On the other hands its good that people learned many things because they can grow up and be creative in different ways. Firstly, some schools are not doing a great job because they dont really care, they just want to get the kids over with so that they can just move on with there lives. I feel like schools need to teach more things youll need in the future. For example , like a tax class or a class to start motivating yourself , speaking to others . The same thing all over and all over again isn 't doing any justice for anyone at all.
The theatre student asserts that plays are meant to be seen, and the English student generally works on the opposite assumption. We spend far too much time doing close readings of Shakespeare and the like throughout the study of English to allow any belief that we are not consuming the works as they were intended. There too seems to exist a strong correlation between esoteric or modern plays and the pithiness of their stage directions. This is to say that, without reading the script, an audience is missing on the syntaxical beauty of well-written stage directions — this part of the writing becomes a secret of the actors, and one they must only convey through movement and expression. Caryl Churchill’s Vinegar Tom is a play with very little in terms of stage directions, but the songs that are so crucial to addressing the main thematic elements almost have the opposite problem of translation of wordless additions to scripts.
For many years there has been controversy of whether sex education should be taught in school systems. There are many parents who would agree with allowing their children to take an age appropriate sex education class, but there are just as many parents who would not agree with their children taking a sex education class. If teaching a sex education class could prevent thousands of sexually transmitted diseases being spread among teens and decrease the number of teenage pregnancies, why not teach it? A sex education class could provide many benefits for students and it should be taught in school systems. Teaching sex education in schools could be very beneficial for students mentally and physically.
This story is convincing to the audience, and it enables them to look at Robinson’s talk with a critical mind and hence appreciate his assertion that indeed schools kill creativity. Robinson prompts the crowd to imagine further what it would be if they allowed children to explore their talents while still young. He mentions that the society is wary of making mistakes and the idea has been coined in the children’s minds that they grow up wishing to be experts and this shuts down their creativity( 5:21). Robinson provokes the crowd into thinking about William Shakespeare and makes a joke about his father shutting him down his style of speech since it was not clear to other people (7:28). The strategy is useful since it touches on people’s emotion and even allows them to imagine a way they would change their parenting
Why does a engineering or a math major have to take a class on the History of the western cavillation like that will help them at all when it comes to building a bridge or designing new roads? Having a few people in a room decide that you must take these extra classes just because another government figure says so is pointless and does nothing but draw more money out of every single student. It may help the teachers have jobs but hurts the students trying to get a degree and would turn people off wanting to get a degree but they just cannot afford the rest of the added-on
With the advancement of new technology being ever present and growing, so is the ever present problem of cheating with students. The issue with academic dishonesty and cheating among young adults in the education systems has become intolerable due to the access of technology and lack of ethics that the students have in this day and age. Many people try to justify or understand why students cheat but they do not understand, so they just implement what they believe instead of asking the students first hand. A survey done by Charles Sturt University and Jenny Wilkinson found out that 67% of administrators believe that students cheat because the think they are lazy and unlikely to be caught and 65% think they are unknowingly cheating, while 73% of students said that they cheat because of the pressures to get better grades and 56% say that the cause for cheating is the stress of to much assignments at one time (Wilkinson). From the time students start going to school they learn that grades are most important above all things and that can drive some to take drastic measures like cheating to get the grades that make parents
