In “The Sanctuary of School” Lynda applies her personal life to the fact that some people think cutting down budgets for public schools will benefit when times get tough. Also that art, music and the creative ideas will be the first to go when budgets are cut. Lynda had a rough childhood where her parents had money issues and family members that needed temporarily to stay at her home (Barry, 721). The lack of attention from her parents made her look for attention elsewhere in this case the school. Lynda saw her teacher Mrs. LeSane as a mother figure.
This shows courage because he made her life horrible and was very mean to her by trying to make her cry, but she still very nicely stood up to him. That is why this book shows courage. Although both stories have many things in common, they both also have many of things that they have that are differences between them. For instance In Making Sarah Cry she did nothing about getting bullied and she just kept (stupidly) coming outside. However, In don’t give up the fight she told her best friend and then her and her best friend told the principal.
However, my friends thought I was doing too much and started calling me names like; nerd, boring, no fun life girl etc. Peers and some of my family thought I had nothing else to do with my life than to study. Moreover, my friends were not the most intelligent but they were amusing, entertaining and awesome in class. Teachers appreciated them more in class. I wanted to be like them so I tried to get a bad grade in school just to
But I try to ignore the comments I ask myself and try to be positive. I’ve also got in honors classes and I like the teachers I like they get us prepared for the next grade. In conclusion I loved every middle school year because of the teachers and the students. I’ve gone through many changes during middle school but I never knew they were so weird. But I’ve learned to adapt to this changed so it doesn’t feel as weird as the first time.
Rose says that it was low level classes and he was placed in these classes accidentally, but he decided to stay there. Basically, he talks about his classmates and education environment in this school. As I understood from the text, the education environment was not good to grow good students. Rose explains that his teachers were not so interested in teaching and they used physical violence to control students. As for the students, many of them had negative behaviour and no desire to study, but Rose noted their true personalities and says that they weren't just troublemakers.
Focusing on learning over results was what set these teachers apart from others. Rather than focusing on getting that "A" in class, these teachers helped me to focus on my own learning and well-being. They helped me maintain my grades, and I found that I was much happier with myself and what I was learning in school. Nevertheless, I have also had many teachers, where from my perspective, were not engaged in what they were teaching and as a result, I was not engaged in my learning. The quality of my work done in these classes declined, and before I knew it, I dreaded these classes.
I definitely had some preferences on the books that we read this semester. An example of this is Laramie Project, I didn’t like the start of the book at all and then once it got going I ended up enjoying it a little bit more. Usually classes in high school involve skills that wont be used later in life but this class helped develop skills I will use. I saw this as a set up class for real life situations. It prepares you to be informed in a controversy like gay rights or learning about communities you didn’t know about
According to the novel, Ji-Li’s grandma was forced to sweep alley and her dad was detained because of the Cultural Revolution.

After watching Alyse Shacter speak about obsessive compulsion disorder (OCD), there were a few things that did surprise me. To begin with, I was surprised that her classmates were extremely helpful with her OCD and offering to carry her to class so she wouldn’t miss class. Even though her parents were the ones that spoke to the class about Alyse’s OCD, Alyse still showed bravery and courage to allow her parents to speak to her class about her problems. This story reduces the stigma of mental illness because even though Alyse suffered from severe OCD, as her classmates became aware they decided to help Alyse. They even offered to carry her from class to class so she wouldn’t step on the tiles, which was one of her OCDs.
Today, there still lots of influences, even though roadblocks hold me back and make me do bad decision’s. During school it might be boring to do work but at the end we all learn new things. Also, many of us get lectured from our parents about a bad grade or a poor decision, but after middle school or high school the advice pays off to know about. Even though, lots of people know what they did and might be honest with the choice they made and that will help them with avoiding the roadblocks of knowing they were lying to the parent. To avoid the roadblocks is to do the right thing and make the better choice.
The students think because their teacher is in the classroom they don’t have to do any work, which they shouldn’t think this way. It 's also a challenge for the substitute because she felt like she had to gain their respect one way or another. I thought it was good that she decided to give them recess detention for them to finish the work they didn’t finish when they were in class. I also think it’s great to have a good communication with the general teacher and the substitute teacher. Mrs Roush did talk to the class about how disappointed she was that they didn’t behave while she was out of the
“Student” and “Crow Lake” these two articles both talked about the relationship between teachers and students. Wayman, the teacher in “Student”, he insisted on attracting his students’ interests, but it didn’t work out very well. Katie, the teacher in “Crow Lake”, she recalled a childhood experience during her class, it came out that students got bored by her voice. Wayman tried very hard on helping students learn better, but the students only care about their grades instead of learning things. Katie tried to teach her students, but there had no connections between Katie and the student.
