There are multiple things that could keep students from excelling in school. According to ‘Pros vs. Cons of Extended School Days’, “Before deciding to extend the school day, consider changes that can be incorporated to solve the specific issues the school is facing.” Extending school hours is the easy way to approach the issue, but it isn’t that simple. One cause of low test scores is the misuse of time in class. There are many students who have trouble with time management. They often struggle to finish their work on time because they’re engaged in conversations or things other than their assignment.
Some college students do not know how to properly prepare for a test and will perform poorly and are anxious as a result. “The academic workload requires that students face a series of peak periods such as finals, there is a relatively constant underlying pressure to complete an upcoming assignment” (Hudd, Dumlao, Erdmann, Murray, Phan, Soukas, & Yokozuka, 2000). After completing an exam, there is a period of depression that students may experience which reflects on how they performed and their performance compared to other colleagues. Low self-confidence and a poor perception of performance can be a reason why depression occurs after the test. Course overload can also cause students a great deal of stress.
1. INTRODUCTION The transition from school to university is seen as challenging task that is experienced by most school leavers. The different environment and culture could come as a shock to most learners. University helps prepare learners for life in the working world, through its different pressures and obstacles in which learners need to develop tactics to overcome. This report is directed to grade twelve learners and discuss transitional issues amongst first year learners in university.
Gender stereotypes don’t help create an effective learning environment within a classroom. Now, this affects the classroom environment due to how much peer work is needed to be completed with certain assignments. Classrooms are meant to help children learn fundamental subjects and how to work collaboratively. According to an article called “Gender Socialization” written by a website called Lumen states, “when children do not conform to the appropriate gender role, they may face negative sanctions such as being criticized or marginalized by their peers.” When this happens, peers are neglected or even outcasted by these gender roles and can cause the student to not be able to learn effectively with being criticized. Along with that, students won’t be able to learn effectively with how they might be worrying about the criticism being placed upon them by their peers rather than focusing on the classroom work.
They also would have a larger opportunity to try new things and pursue topics that interest them. Students are required to take classes every year in order to graduate from high school. These mandatory classes currently make up a large portion of a school’s curriculum. However, they are not as generous to students as they are to schools. As a result of these mandatory classes, students spend their precious minutes every day in classes that they are not interested in.
Students who procrastinate have bad academic performances, grades and a “whatever” attitude when it comes to doing their school work. This is a bad habit many students have. They can break this bad habit by changing their habits, staying more focused and staying organized. There are different types of procrastinations students perform. According to Lauren Rosetti (2011), author of Procrastination behaviors in college students, “Procrastination is defined as the act of postponing an activity or task until another point in time which can result in not having enough time to complete the work.
Additionally, there may be emotional strain that has the student preoccupied, thus making them less focused on the exam. Another disadvantage of exams is that they “Can create a lot of stress on both educators and students” (“Pros and Cons of Standardized Testing”). It is well-known that university-level students have many late nights studying information they believe to be on their exams days before midterms and finals, which causes them to be fatigued, stressed, and anxious. Similarly, professors may become frustrated at only being able to teach information that is going to be on the exam, which can hinder overall knowledge about topics in the
Today we will look at how truancy and absenteeism has dramatic effects on the individual, peers, teachers and school. Students who truanted and are absent for long periods or even short times tend to be affected the most because of the lack of attendance. One of the most evident effects is academic underachievement, because of the student not attending lessons and missing during lesson, student break the continuity of learning and will find it difficult to get on the same page as their peers. The curriculum is tight and missing out on a day of school can lead to students tend fail to catch an important topic that will appear in examinations. Students can also have a loss of confidence and lack of self-esteem due to being unable to cope in the same pace as the others in the class.
Module 3 listed what could factor into the student’s school day which included social, emotional, and economic challenges due to their illness. These students may need more time to get from place to place, more time to rest, and may experience side-effects from medication. Students with intellectual disabilities struggle because of developmental delays which hinder them from interacting with their peers. Consequently, they may show frustration sooner because they have not learned to control their emotions. As a teacher, my job is to be aware of these influences that may hinder my student from learning, so that I can accommodate my teaching to fit the needs of my student, and instead emphasis their
Academics are important for kids to succeed later in life, but kids that have been bullied may not want to go to school because of that one person that bullies them. From bullying someone it can cause them to have a decrease in their academics that can hurt themselves later in life. Parents need to be aware of the things that their kids go through and see the effects in them because not many kids will come out and say that they are being bullied at school. They need to be more informed and know what actually goes on at school other that learning in class. Many children are bullied each year including over 3 million kids.
