Barry writes about the last-minute process of the science fair project and the “importance” of the fair. In the beginning of the essay, he states that the science fair is there “for a good reason: Your teachers to hate you”. This introduces the idea that science fairs are pointless and show no real value as most students do not start their projects until the night before. Barry adds more humor as he mentions the required display boards that cause “many top scientist fail to win the Nobel Prize”. This use of sarcasm shows how unnecessary the rules and the fair are.
Having year-round schooling would only become an annoyance to students, teachers, and parents. I am against year-round schooling because it gives students little to no time for breaks, it would become an inconvenience to students, teachers, and parents, and it would burn students out much more quickly. Having to work all year round would bee annoying to anybody, including students. Year- round schooling gives students little to no breaks from school without counting holiday vacations. It does mean students would go to school for less days a week, however, this would also mean teachers would have to compensate for this by giving them a lot of homework over this extended weekend.
An example of irony in the essay is when Eighner mentions the students who throw out all their food at the end of a semester. Despite being educated, the students do not know if their food “has spoiled or will spoil before they return” (Eighner 111) and foolishly discard all of it. On the other hand, Eighner, who is homeless man and may be presumed to be uneducated, knows that items such as “nonorganic peanut butter does not require refrigeration and is unlikely to spoil in any reasonable time” (Eighner 111). While one may assume that the college student would have more knowledge about perishable and nonperishable food, the college student proves to be less informed than the homeless man. Another example of irony is when Eighner mentions the students who “throw out canned goods and staples at the end of semesters when they give up college at midterm” (Eighner 111).
But the Socs are rich, while the greaser are poor and some don’t even have a good education because a couple dropped out of school to work and or they didn’t like school. Then the attitudes of the characters because in The Outsiders they have to act tough and mean no emotion towards the Socs showing that they are the alpha of the streets. But in Romeo and Juliet the groups they cannot fight around or in the houses of the very upper class families or else the family will be blamed for the death of whomever. The behaviors between the two books is very different. The characters in the Outside the have less manners because none of them respect each other at all because when they have the chance the gangs will strike like cobras In conclusion the two novels The Outsiders and Romeo and Juliet are both fantastic books.
What this essay is saying about students and education is there is no student who doesn’t want to learn or what’s to get an education. Everybody is capable of learning, but the problem is sometimes the education are given by people who don’t care if you are learning or not. In this essay, we learned that the author was put in classes where the teachers didn’t care too much about their students and because of this he become a mediocre student. Not because he didn’t like school or he was lazy, but because there was no inspiration in learning. Luckily, Mike Rose the author of I Just Wanna Be Average found someone that wants him to start learning someone that make him change his mind.
The majority of people think preps/jocks are meatheads who need the help of other to pass their classes and who cannot hold any type of intellectual conversations that do not consist of exercise or sports. Now a days the term jock is not often used, the term athlete is used to represent a person who are proficient in sports; they now are more intellectual due to the need to pass their classes to be allowed to participate in school functions. An intellectual is typically seen as the nerd and teacher's pet but in reality they are the quiet, to themselves type of individual. The goths/punks are seen as the depressed and misunderstood type but the fact is that they are the most creative bunch out of the two. They often use their sense of style to show their creativity.
They don’t have an idea of what a college student do. They don’t even know the steps to achieve success (“Why Do Students Fail? Faculty 's Perspective”, 2014). Lot of teenagers is simply not ready for the exhaustive schedule of higher level program. That is why many students take a break after a semester (Dasko, M., 2008), • Lack of Effort Effort is one of the reasons why students fail to succeed.
Struggling to make things go straight was not easy for me as I had no friend to guide me through the town and to school. Being new in the city came with negative things such as boredom at school, and as such, I remained silent most of the times when there were no lectures. I remember I was mocked by one of the students in our class and this lowered my self-esteem since I did not understand why she looked at me and started laughing. This moment seemed to be the most harmful experience of my life since I dislike people who mock me. I have had positive experiences in life, but the most impactful in my life is when I started working as a nursing assistant and home health aide in a health care facility.
America is now lagging behind the rest of the developed world in a very scary way. We have allowed our children to get lazy in every aspect of their schooling. The teachers make it too easy, the administrators make it too easy, the parents make it too easy. All of this adds up to the joke of a school system we have today. It is such a ridiculous system where the gifted and talented kids are wasted in classes that are not worth
It has been the fault of the school district, school, and teachers as to why the students have a lack of global perspective. In talking to my students I found out that they think very little of competing academically with another country and how the use of technology impacts their ability to compete. Other than a social studies course, we rarely mention what takes place in countries other than our own and it is even more rare to talk about how these countries are using technology or their advancement in education. Not taking advantage of this platform with our students and colleagues eventually puts us all at a disadvantage because we limit our research for competing to neighboring schools and counties before we even look at things from a national
Auxiliary schools in like manner encounter the evil impacts of poor execution, even as a bit of the brightest understudies spend their lesser and senior years in a holding configuration sitting tight for colleges. In any case, he doesn 't oblige his criticism to basic and helper guideline, as he proceeds to inspect how the school system furthermore indicates honest to goodness advertise dissatisfactions, as a colossal piece of government help just funds instructive cost increases, rather than growing moderateness. Kennedy fights that the issue of poverty, among money related factors, begins from a nonattendance of appropriate getting ready in view of a separating preparing system. At the very
Public schools across the nation are wasting their money on equipment and better facilities, but they are forgetting what matters the most which is each students education. In the Documentary Stupid in America, they said that a lot of schools spend a lot of money a professional pools, and well equipped gyms, but all of the extra money sent to the public schools did not help improve test scores (Stupid in America). They also stated that small charters schools do not have gyms, pools, even, buildings, but they are still able to outperform student attending other public educations (Stupid in America. Schools are not doing enough not maximize their funds on just the children 's education and not hobbies or sports. There are many public schools that
Grades are as valuable as star-shaped stickers, yet they have the power to lay the foundation of our entire lives. The grades we earn have no commercial value, but students invest millions into taking a class to get a grade. In Jerry Farber’s essay “A Young Person’s Guide to the Grading System,” he crushes society’s constant need for competition by pointing out all of the major flaws in the grading system and offering a new credit system as a solution. Farber is correct by claiming that the grading system is flawed, stressful, and overall, useless. Farber builds his essay on the basis that grades are problematic for the school system to use.
As a freshman, I thought this was out of reach for me and pointless to work toward so I decided to put NHS out of my sight. I did not realize my potential as a young scholar; in doing so, I set myself back academically. My priorities were set on understanding the hectic schedule instead of the vigorous goals that I have now. As a fourteen year-old in freshman year, my standards were set lower for myself since I was unorganized and lost majority of the time. I lacked skills in time-management and multitasking; skills which I practiced and perfected through my school’s use of the modular schedule.
Within Northrop Frye’s essay, “Don’t you think it’s time to start thinking?”, high school students are represented as not being able to think and not having any sense of language as a structure because of the societal stereotype that teenagers are lazy and not driven to do their best. From schoolwork to our personal hobbies, society has been plagued by this blandly pretentious idea. To prove Frye has been influenced by the societal stereotype of lazy teenagers, one must first prove that there is such a stereotype. Generation Z (those born from the mid 90’s to the early 2000’s) is characterized by their avid internet use and dependence on technology such as cell phones, tablets, laptops, and advanced appliances. Apparently, we’ve become so
