If class work was to callous I’d complain to my case manager. I’d tell her that I didn’t have enough time or that I have lots other work to do, so she would get me out of any work that I dint want to do. My case manger got me lots of extensions on projects, homework, and test. But I didn’t take advantage of any of it. My grades were dropping faster than ever, and so was my self-esteem.
When the state exam finally came it was nothing relevant to all that we had studied the entire year. From that point on I felt that English classes were a waste of time, and I was no good at them. When the results from the state test came, I received a
Rose and his family were unware of the scores being switched, and they didn’t realize what this meant for Rose and his future. The school should have taken action on this problem by switching the scores back and placing the two children in the programs they tested into originally. This connects to Rose’s main idea by showing that the children were overlooked, and that the school was not prepared for this situation to
But the older I got, the harder social interactions became. In middle school and early into high school, I missed more school due to the anxiety attacks that came from my failed social interactions than I did from illness. As someone who is sick often, this was unacceptable to me. Autistic people often obsess over the things that interest them, called “special interests.” Body language became one of these special interests for me in high school as a result of the tedious research I began to get out of this feeling that I was alone in a world where everyone knew a secret I could not find out.
Students who underachieve are most likely to have trouble in school work and are most likely not that motivated to do work in the classroom. Native American people are a very independent people who like to get things done on there own, but in the need of assistance or refuge they can depend on other tribes to help fight for what they want. Therefore having them get financial assistance from the government is a great to help rebuild and modernise the schools. A
the main factor. The fact that students lose all interest in the teaching process when they feel forced to learn is enough to understand this notion. What happens when they feel forced to learn is that the freedom to obtain joy and natural satisfaction from the very process of fulfilling curiosity is completely erased, so there is no space for intrinsic motivation, which is the central motivator for this dissertation and also for those two aforesaid authors. That being said, the first point to take into account is not to create in students urgency and compulsion. For this purpose there is to take in mind that there are some elements out of the class that influence students.
In middle school I never had good grades I was always the student who did not understand the lesson. During this time I would get so frustrated i would just give up and not even try. From the beginning of 6th grade to the end of 7th I pretty much had all F’s maybe some B’s in my easy classes. My parents were very disappointed in me and i was disappointed in myself. After 7th grade i decided i was gonna switch gears and start really putting my right foot forward and start paying attentions in school and ask for help when I need it.
I didn 't care about my early years of high school; My grades were poor and my mind was too focused on trying to forget the struggles of life. After sophomore year of high school, I began to think and acknowledge all of the issues I’ve experienced throughout my life. I thought to myself that I could never achieve true happiness if I continued to run away and hide from the reality of
For instance, in the process of learning English, I was very shy and refused to talk to English speakers. This fear not only delayed my process of adjusting to this new society, but it made me insecure, which resulted in a low academic performance in my second and third years of high school. In addition, I was also facing the divorce of my parents, which affected me emotionally. However, witnessing the efforts and the struggle that my mother was going through to support my brother and I, made realize that she needed me stronger than ever, and there was when I set personal and academic goals for
I mainly learned and observed and took notes, instead. I found it somewhat difficult because I noticed that the OT did not cater to each child’s abilities. I had worked with the children for 8 hours a day as their previous teacher, instead of working with them for only 1 – 2 hours a day, as the OT did. Therefore, I knew the children’s weaknesses and strengths and what they should have been working harder or less
My childhood was lost because of this, but since coming out a new world has opened. When I started my freshman year of high school I was quiet, extremely introverted, depressed, and always anxious. I didn’t how to make friends, I had no friends, and I was at a new school. My world was turned upside down, but for the first time in my life, I could be who I wanted to be, which was myself. I didn’t want to trapped inside myself anymore and didn’t want to be afraid of what the world could do to me.
While I do not consider it a failure now at the time I was definitely frustrated with myself and considered it a failure. When I had to repeat my junior year I was mad at myself for not be able to complete the school year. As time went on I was able to focus on the positives in the situation and I was able to finally accept that I was not prepared for my senior year both emotionally and academically considering I missed so much school. If I did continue on to senior year I would not have been close to prepared as I am now for college. I ended up repeating my junior year due to the fact that I missed close to two-thirds of school due to a medical condition.
A major issue in America today is poverty. However not much is being done to help those in need. Many who struggle in poverty are those who struggle getting the basic necessities we need in the everyday life such as food, clothes, water, and shelter. Different factors that can contribute to poverty are lack of education, unemployment, poor economy, race/origin, non-effective policies, and illness/disease; therefore more help should be made towards helping those in need. One of the factors that contributes to poverty is lack of education.
