Some believe that gum chewing is the nastiest habit in the world, it can impede the learning process, and gum chewing can be noisy and distracting to other students. Others teachers make their own rules. They allow gum chewing as long as it does not interfere with their ability to teach or students ' ability to concentrate. Some say chewing gum should not be allowed in school, while other argue that it should be allowed in school. Schools should allow gum in school, as well as the classroom because it allows kids to concentrate.
Have you ever had gum and tried to hide it by sticking it under a desk. Or maybe even choked on it when trying to hide it from a teacher or fellow classmate who might snitch. Many people will disagree with the fact that gum might help students learn. They are caught up on the negative reasons and downsides to having gum in a classroom or even on school grounds. They aren’t looking at the reasons gum may help students in classrooms study, learn, and excel in their usual environment.
On the website Ask Doctor K, he explains how gum can have great effect by saying, “the act of chewing gum does tend to fight cavities.” Although he says regular gum isn’t good for you, he explains how sugar free gum can help some things in your mouth. Gum is good for your teeth and there isn’t any reason for schools to ban them. Gum should be allowed in school because it helps people do better on tests and work and can also help your teeth. All gum does is help students with what they are doing in class. So what is the point of not being able to chew gum?
Imagine yourself as a middle school student. You didn’t do so well in school, and school wasn’t a very nice place to come to because it just gave you even more stress. Well, if students could chew gum, then maybe they would be less stressed out all the
Chewing gum has been a controversial issue ever since it was invented in 1848, because people do not know the benefits of it. There are far more pros than cons to chewing gum than most people think. A majority of teachers have banned gum in the school setting. These concerns, center around the notion of maintaining cleanliness in the classroom, more specifically, students sticking gum under the desks or on the floor. This seems to be facilitated by gum restriction in the first place.
Schools around the nation ban soda and candy from their campus while other schools allow their students to have candy and soda. Some schools say it’s too unhealthy for their students so they provide just the school food because it’s healthy and nutritious. Other schools do allow their students to drink soda and candy because their students often crave different things instead of just school food. Through my perspectives I say we should not ban soda and candy. I say we shouldn’t ban soda and candy because us students do crave it.
In some schools, however, it is left up to the teachers to decide the rules. Most schools seem to think it is a bad habit to let students chew gum as some students can be irresponsible with gum. However, in middle school I think we should look at the rules closer. I would ask for schools to implement the permission to chew gum and install gum dispensers in cafeterias and commons for students. Studies show that
Some of the students cheated on vocabulary quizzes by hiding the vocabulary list near them where they could still see it, and since it was a short (2-3 minutes) quiz the teacher wouldn’t make people put binders fully away. In one instance a student had a vocabulary list next to his desk, I was temped to look at it because I had blanked on the answers but then thought otherwise. I thought about the statement that “character is acting well when no one is watching”. I thought that it would not be worth it to cheat on anything, even not directly not because of getting caught (I wouldn’t have since it wasn’t my paper) but because I need to think about what kind of person that would make me, if I did and continued down a wrong path. My parents brought me up to be moral, and I would loose a key value in cheating, no matter how small the quiz.
Profanity is inappropriate in a school setting so why should students be assigned to read a book that contains it? Most learn curse words at a very young age, and the foul language displayed is not used to promote vulgarity but rather to add a sense of realism to the narrative. The use of profanity is a reason why some object to The Secret Life of Bees. Ian Warwick and Peter Aggleton write about how students often feel bullied when
