In Public Enemy’s song “Give It Up,” the group stated “I never did represent doing dumb shit, some gangsta lying - I’d rather diss Presidents” (Public Enemy). Public Enemy went on to influence other Hip Hop artists such as X Clan, Prophets of Rage, Paris, Rage Against the Machine, Kendrick Lamar and many more. Students or anyone for that matter can take what they learn from those lyrics and apply them to their own lives. Many teachers and professors are implementing Hip-Hop into their curriculums as a way to get their students engaged in class and get a better understanding of what they are
Whether its fiction or not. For example high school musical (book and movie), you brain wash us to think and believe that high school would be easy, make friends, sing and dance, nice this nice that. Until you live, where I live and you have a school that can never keep heat, bugs, lack of nutrition in the lunch food, teachers who do not want to teach cause of an “attitude” problem, or a principal who will not let you be yourself. We do not understand that this generation can change the world by standing up and owning who we are. Back then in “The Plague” they could not do much as of “helping” them out with that disease.
Children who wear the same clothing everyday are not able to express their individuality and creativity. They even think that the root cause of bullying should not be addressed on students wear uniforms or not. The interest in encouraging on requiring uniforms for public school students is not a new phenomenon, “principals believe that the use of school uniforms can have a positive effect on violence reduction and academic achievement, and can reduce the need to discipline.” (Stanley, 424) Teenagers can be judgmental of each other and compare with each other sometimes. Uniforms can prevent students in school getting bullied, killed, sexual harass or even fight with each other about what they wear to school, if everyone all had uniforms, students would not pick on other people; especially protect the students from lower income family will not feel inferior, and reduce sexually harass based on what they are wearing. If all these issues can be removed and many school violence can be avoided.
How would you feel if you were aware that your constitutional right of the First Amendment was being violated? Today in public schools all around the nation, the right to pray has been taken. As shocking as this information may seem, it is completely legitimate. This controversial decision, made by the Supreme Court on June 25, 1962, has disappointed many Americans over the past few decades. However, allowing voluntary, student-led prayer to be brought back into the school systems can not only benefit students, but also benefit our country by teaching this nation 's youth the necessary religious morals they need to be able to efficiently establish right from wrong, and allowing them to practice their constitutional right of the First Amendment.
To my knowledge, college students won’t giggle at any profanity used in any novel and will be able to really appreciate this novel. Furthermore, the more mature college students will be able to have more in-depth discussions regarding The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. In today’s world, it’s tough for a teacher to not be able to discuss certain aspects of the book. The talk about the n-word and racial discrimination during that time period, for example, should be discussed within the classroom. The strictness of high school might hinder the potential depth of these conversations; while in a college’s less strict environment, professors have more of a freedom to discuss the controversial features that surround the novel.
Since it’s a highly known topic in the lower class studying it will help them have interest on school because it is something that they are really passionate about and very familiar with. By them going to college doing something they love, this will reduce the number of potential people that could be involved in violent or criminal activities. So De la Rosa views this as a potential outlet for low income families not as a road block. So both authors believe that Hip hop has influence on culture but the views on those influence is different for both authors. In conclusion
This was my life throughout my high school career. At Drake I've met students who have advised me that it's not my job to educate people on issues they aren't familiar with. I also get that same message from Drake when they send out surveys to tackle diversity, religion and political beliefs. Through those surveys Drake gathers information on how students feel in their classrooms and if are inclusive to everybody. Recently I took a survey specifically for the school of journalism and mass communication that focused on the environment of the school and how the school can become a better place for students.
Randomly testing students for drugs in school would allow them to get help from teachers, counselors, and other adults. Many students stated that they would not be embarrassed if they were to be called down to take a random drug test. Randomly testing will help stop drug abuse in student athletes who wish to continue to participate in sports. “An experimental pilot study of student athletes involved in RSDT programs showed an associated reduction in drug use” (DuPont 841). Random drug testing will also make student athletes stop using drugs “if they’re really serious about playing” (Marciana np).
People think it is not conducive to young people’s psychological growth, based on the bad words and cruel lessons of society, but I think teenagers are strong enough to assume those facts and look at the strengths of the realistic characters. They need to try to accept and face the real world, not just stay in the Utopian world that parents and school give to them. One day they will suddenly step out, and life might force them to breakdown. This book is as same as an injection of reality for them. In the result of my analysis, I still believe the book Of Mice and Men should be on the list that high school students are required to read.
Thanks to your actions the rest of us are facing the consequences. The other thing, you don’t need to be consuming alcohol at a high school age. It’s ILLEGAL to have possession nevertheless consume alcohol under the age of 21. Also, is school just that boring that you feel you need to be drunk in class? School is there for you to better yourself and to help you get an education.
Based from the stereotype of African Americans and their humble lyrics of hip-hop music, many families in the United States usually have the great concern of their children’s cognitive would be shaped by hip-hop culture. In the book, Balancing Acts: Youth Culture in the Global City, written by Natasha Kumar Warikii, a Harvard Professor, she reports that hip-hop culture has become “a global currency for status among urban youth.” She determined that she found no probable cause of hip-hop music with low academic performance. In other words, listening to hip-hop music would not degrade student’s performance in school. Also, in the article, Is Hip Hop Education Another Hustle? The (Ir)Responsible Use of Hip Hop as Pedagogy, it describes how hip-hop based education can be engaged with youth and increase their academic achievement.
While this novel does have profanity and sexual references, it still deserves to be taught in high school because Holden shows how having a negative attitude towards life does not get a person far. In the beginning of the novel Holden tells the reader that "[Pencey] kick[s] [him] out [of their school]" (6) because he "was [failing] four subjects and not applying [himself]" (6). However, he does not just notify the reader, he notifies them in a way of forgetting to mention that he is no longer going to be attending Pencey. Holden passes this off as some minor detail when in reality it is not just a minor detail. Later on, Holden reveals to the reader that this is not the first school where he has gotten expelled.
