Taking Basic Life Skill Classes Taking basic life skill classes in high school is an ideal way to prepare students for living on their own. These classes not only help prepare students for living on their own, but also gives them a feeling of confidence in their abilities. A survey of 165,000 students found that only forty-six percent felt confident and positive about their readiness for college and their careers (Leal). Academic classes do help prepare students for the coursework college brings, but it does not help students face the reality of life after high school. Students sit in classes like physics, English, chemistry, and math that have little to no use outside of school.
One concept that can be compared between the novels we have read so far this semester, The White Tiger and Persepolis is education. The role that education plays in both novels shows a lot about the societies of the time they took place along with the characters. To begin, in The White Tiger, Balram isn’t given the opportunity to gain an education because he needs to begin working to help his cousin. Balram gains intelligence by learning how to make his way through life while not having the book-smarts that society requires one to have to be considered intelligent. Balram manages to find a way to obtain a license, and slowly moves his way up in the cab industry going from driving a small car to a luxury one.
He appeals to the reader’s emotions by providing a personal anecdote of his own experience with education. This is a very useful rhetorical strategy because it helps for the reader to connect with the author and feel as though they can relate since they have been through similar experiences. He talks about his transition from private to public school, and all the differences between the two schools. His experience with high school was one where it was more of a prison then an actual learning facility. Moore states that,” I was now walking the halls of a two-thousand-plus-inmate holding pen” (Moore, 127).This quote exemplifies how school was more of a place where adults controlled their students ,and confined them instead of taking the time to mold them into productive members of society.
Macias?s intended audience is his classmates and his professor, so when he uses his personal experience in the first paragraph, his audience will see how that could easily happen to them since he shares many of the same attributes as his intended audience. His goal is to make the audience feel hostile toward credit card companies. Adding to this idea are words such as, ?bombarded students with highly sophisticated advertising?, and ?disguising the real cost of credit, and ?attack students with mail? (Macias 282). All of those phrases evoke a negative feeling about credit card companies.
The youth league leaders assigned two to a pair — one good at academia, one loyal to the party — each to improve the other’s “weaker” area. Ting, a Youth League committee member, had difficulty in math and science classes. To prove my sincerity to the party, I could only comply. Evening school hours allowed students who had poor conditions at home to have a well-lit and quiet place for homework. It became mandatory for me.
The schools that have no homework have a better boat. In other words, schools with no homework do not have better test scores. In the article “20 Pros and Cons of Homework.” on Vittana.org the author explains how how homework only creates negative attitudes towards schools; “Survey after survey has found that the only thing that homework does is create a negative attitude toward schooling and education in general.” Students receive a great deal of homework each night but yet all it does is create a negative attitude towards school. If homework was eliminated then students might have a more positive attitude towards school. This would cause students to perform better academically since they think of school in positive ways and want to excelle.
School Uniforms Nobody enjoys waking up early for school only to be made fun of for the clothes they are wearing. Children are always compared to one another, so why not add school uniforms to the equation to make them equal? Only a few schools, mostly private schools, enforce wearing uniforms. Yet the impact of school uniforms is so positive and beneficial. Private schools never had to use uniforms, but they chose to.
Anyon says that “public schools in complex industrial societies like our own make available different types of educational experience and curriculum knowledge to students in different socials classes;” and In my experience that I’ve had with school is a working class and I support it because it is a good way to teach kids. Jean Anyon’s article was speaking of the different types of schools there is out there and how they work depending on the social class that they’re in. Some social classes are harder than others because it just all depends on how the kids are and how they act and how the teachers are told to teach and how they actually teach.According to the article “Journal of Education” study states that “ Woke is getting the right answer…,” and that “One must follow directions in order to get the
Prejudice to the opposite religion would start to form starting in primary school and would continue on into secondary school. The different curriculums only furthered the divide between the children. Although a very small percentage of students in Northern Ireland attended integrated schools, it shows that there is hope to prevent the divide from worsening. Students tended to be more open minded towards one another and this shows the impact the education system has on children. Without having the opportunity to grow friendship over the community divide, nothing will ever change.
Emphasis on teaching facts only will destroy the fascinating, curious minds of our children. Fact base education system is like a dictatorship. Education should not just be about facts being stored in our minds and release for when tested on. Education should be holistic; yes, fact is important and so is our imagination for it’s with that we go places. “Fact”; Bill Gates failed several exams… “Imagination”; what started out as a thought and imagination has made him the owner of Microsoft.
When Junior joins the all white school, it helps teach the students to let go of some of the stereotypes they had been brought up with. They all stayed away from the “creepy, violent, Indian kid” at first. Until a few took the time to get to know him and became friends. Near the end of the book, the students at Reardan have learned a great deal from Junior. He earns the respect, most easily shown through the basketball team, of most students.
Our teacher knew how to keep us calm which is what they should be educated on how to do. The man who was a threat to our school was in the elementary portion of our school the entire time, but no one knew this during the lockdown. He had a hit list in mind and it was mostly made up of school staff. Although no one was at all injured in this
