Have you ever felt alone or isolated from the world? Well from being in middle school, I’ve learned that some people feel as if the world revolved around them. They do things they never would’ve done. Yet, they still do it just to try to fit in the crowd. From many experiences, I have learned that it’s ok to not be with the crowd since the crowd isn’t always the best option.
I would notice my peers looking at me and treating me differently, usually from a distance because I was not of the same race as them. At a young age, I understood that children would sometimes bully each other once in awhile, but that did not happen to me. The act of bullying instead was in a more intense form of what we would call it discrimination, which is an act of unjust or unfair due to a difference of people (Replogle 2018). Where discrimination began to play in my everyday life in school for about three years. Everywhere I went, I encountered those who would called me names and tried to mimic my Asian eyes.
I found myself not always being respected for this reason. However I tried not to let it control my relationship with the kids I interacted with because I do not feel that is fair to them or myself. One of my personal strengths in this setting was the ability to create relationships with these children and teens by relating with them through shared experiences. I also had the ability to facilitate a positive and fun environment during the after school
Another goal I had throughout the semester was to go outside of my comfort zone a little, I really didn 't like to talk in front of the class. However, as a Peer Mentor I had to do that more than twice which really develop outside of my comfort zone. Sgo that growth in getting out of my comfort zone was amazing and helped me
After learning more about the history of race in class and from the readings, I can now understand that race is just a construction made by people. At the same time, this also means that race could possibly be used to the advantage of some groups in power and limit others. Is deconstructing these categories a step towards social equality? In return, this helped me better understand the difference between race and ethnicity and how to identify myself. However, many people are unaware of the dark history of race and think nothing of it.
But if we had a shorter school day that would not happen there would be less tests exams less notes homework, and studying no classes. But some people want to goof off with more school hours with less no bad behavior and less referrals, I understand if teachers would lose less money it 's a part of life. But they would have less problems with students and more relaxation to spend time with husband or wife. The district will benefit even more with other job opportunities to do new things that they dream of to not waste their lives
I found out that not everyone are what they appear to be. Sure I talked to people in my grade, but I felt alone. I felt inferior. I felt as if I was invisible, that people only saw me when they only wanted something. Sure I had the love of my family, but it was difficult going to school feeling alone.
In the essay, “Schoolwear Association Research Reveals Uniforms Can Be a Powerful Tool,” the printwear and promotion point to a study done by the Schoolwear Association disagrees and points out that having school uniforms will lower bullying caused by where they are from and economic class. They that,”83% of teachers thought "a good school uniform... could prevent bullying based on appearance or economic background. "(Schoolwear Association ). What this means is having school uniforms can lower bullying. While there is some truth to this argument, it is wrong because only teachers think of this and not parents who are the ones who have to pay for uniforms.
School Uniforms Are The Way To Go School uniforms are essential towards a school’s success. There are many benefits to having uniforms, yet many would still argue that uniforms hinder students’ abilities to express themselves, but if uniforms are strictly enforced, students will be able to focus more in school, be less likely to indulge in gang violence, and help lower income families save money on clothes. Background The way a person dresses is how someone is first seen and then judged. A test was made to see how people can change their judgement on a person just based off of their clothes, a group of men and women were assigned to give judgements on men and women who had Tailored suits and people who had suits you would buy
We lost enough of grades and so I decided to take some action in order to improve such behavior because such irresponsibility was unacceptable. I started to make a time management plan because I realized that without making a proper time schedule the girls would not co-operate. So, my second strategy to reach an A grade was to increase social contact among our group members as we only talked during class times we began to text as well as meet up outside class hours to give each other feedback regarding the project. The positive experiences that I gained was that no matter where or how a person goes social as well as time management skills are very important. In order to be punctual and successful in life one must respect and follow time.
Hi Daniel. From reading your post, you seem like a pretty chill person! I’m very surprised that in your group of friends in middle school there wasn’t a ‘leader’. Usually, there is that one person that tends to stand out a little bit more than the rest, and sometimes without necessarily wanting too, they are seen as the head of the group. But, I think it’s a lot better to not have that ‘leader’, that way no one feels peer pressured to do something.
The VHSL is not giving the people what they believe is right and they are then creating a crack in the system. Schools that are at a disadvantage are in a bad place because of the fact that not everyone in that school will have the opportunity to vote. With all these factors and facts together, passing the bill will benefit everyone and will help make more efficient decision making process and there will no longer be this divide between the VHSL and the
When 6th grade came, I transferred into a Baltimore City Public School since I really wasn’t getting the education I needed at the private school. It was still rough not fitting it. I thought that becoming like the other kids would make me happy, but I was learning new things everyday and I realized in high school that being the outcast is better than being like everyone else. The journey I dealt with in high school was very emotionally tough and life changing. I learned that I was placed on this earth to discover my own path, and I wouldn’t be happy if I live someone else’s life.
courses in college that have opened up my mind to the issue. The more information I learn about this issue, the more surprised I am that our society still exhibits bias, because as much as the United States preaches about equality, it appears as if society has segregation in minor ways. Although the debate between whether there are biased questions on the SATs or not seems to favor that there aren’t by popular opinions, there is still biased behavior occurring in school systems that prevent certain groups of students from getting the proper resources needed. Because I would like to work in an low-income area, which most likely would contain minorities, as a teacher I would make the effort to help those students get the sufficient help needed. This motivates me to become a part of the education field, because caring teachers are much needed in area like this.
There were times when some African Americans lived their lives in poverty. According to the article, students who lived in poverty were often left behind in school because they could not get the support due to weak services (Fram, Miller-Cribbs, Van-Horn p. 309). This shows how students were treated based on what they could and could not afford. These students did not have much support so it was harder for them. Classrooms for students of the lower minority were not properly fortified, and most of the students that were in these classrooms were not that efficient in reading as described in the article.
