St. Mary’s is a Marianist and liberal arts university that prides itself with teaching well rounded students to use their gifts and god given talents to not only help themselves, but their communities and fellow mankind. As technology and science advance, humans are increasingly more detached from one another. It is dangerous for individuals, in this case college students, to master their chosen fields, but fail to connect their mission to the grander scheme of life. Life is more than a grade in a class and certainly more than a test score. Yet, because of ambition and lack of proper guidance to connect the dots between personal success and the common good, it is hard to realize that fact.
Some people may agree on the topic because their students would already have the career they wanted picked out. Some teachers may like their students panning for the future to where they know what they want to do and what they do not want to do. They could even want them to start learning a career early than what most students do. They may also think that planning real early is also a better thing for the future.
Students shouldn’t be ostracized because of their unique capacities for learning. Standardization limits the creativity that students can expose to make the world a better place. According to the speaker, “we have to go in the exact opposite direction” of standardization. The current model of education has to do away with manufacturing students that benefit the economy and look to teaching in a way that will create a more innovative human race. This is what I believe Ken Robinson has been trying to get across for several years and finally expressed
Albert Einstein once said, “The value of a college education is not the learning of many facts, but the training of the mind to think.” This statement applies today more than ever. In a society where technology is rapidly expanding, it is almost impossible to do well in life by relying solely on the facts you learned in school. People must continue learning and figuring things out by themselves while having to deal with new technological advancements coming out all the time. In today's society, a college education is necessary in order to secure a good paying job.
Do you think that teens should have a community service class? Teens don’t do enough community service now, If we had a class for community service they would have to do it. Some kids do not think that community service is important and if they took this class to graduate they would actually do it because they know it would be a grade they had to do. I think that teens should do more community service.
The general argument made by author Charles Murray in his article, “Are too many people go to college,” is that the college is not necessary for everyone. More specifically, the Murray argues that students who went to school should have learned the core knowledge they will learn in the college. He writes, “ K-8 are the right years to teach the core knowledge, and the effort should get off to a running start in elementary school” (236). In this passage, Murray is suggesting that start teaching the core knowledge in elementary school until high school is better than to spend money and more time to the college. It is not important to go to college.
These people should be rewarded instead of being rejected for sheepwalkers just because they are easier and compliant. True leaders want followers who are aspire to become leaders in their own rights rather than to be sheepwalkers. Going back to the example regarding college students, if more teachers allowed their students freedom then those students would grow up to be leaders rather than sheepwalkers. The same would go for the new employee showing up on the first day of job and as a result, there will be less sheepwalkers and more leaders ready to create
The argument supporting a shift in schedule modularity isn’t that it should be introduced as an option immediately, but rather, the student should be provided an introduction to the subject for his/her early grade levels before stepping up to higher education and coordinating with parents to skip the course for something of a higher amount of benefit to the student. Others argue that many kids don’t have aspirations for their future career and that it would jeopardize their education to switch to this type of non-standardized system. The issue with this argument is, however, that many students do have aspirations and are being somewhat restricted from reaching their full learning potential in attempting to standardized and accommodate the “lowest common denominator” in one system. For those who don’t have aspirations, classes offered in the current system of standardized education with the same curriculum should be offered as a choice with the addition of classes/sessions providing further guidance to students who do not have aspirations for their future career to help them find a passion that they can focus on in their education.
Knowledge and information are increasing at such an astronomical rate. What may appear true today could be proven to be false tomorrow and the jobs that students will get after they graduate may not yet exist. This is the reason why students need to be taught how to process, evaluate and use information to apply in all the areas of life because teaching them ideas and facts without teaching them how to use them in real-life settings is no longer enough. Schools need to adapt and develop new ways of teaching and learning that would prepare students for success after graduation and prioritize the knowledge and skills that will be in the greatest demand such as those skills deemed to be most important by college professors and employers. In fact, since 2014, De La Salle Lipa has been offering the DepEd approved two-year Senior High School curriculum for students based on the career track of their choice.
Their guardians or whoever they live with needs to help them be an educated person so that they could have a bright future. Finally, parents need to encourage their children to do the best they can in school so they could be a successful person and live the life they dreamed of when they grow up. Therefore, the main reason students cheat in school is because they are pressured by someone in their life to do well.
Ken Robinson gave a TED talk regarding creativity not being as nourished in schools as it should be. He talks in respect to the uncertainty of the future; and instead of telling the succeeding generation that they need to stick with a career path that will remain steady and beneficial, we need to support the paths they 've chosen. In addition to the parents pushing the kids to become successful in the arts, the schools they attend also need to have a game plan to help put these children on an accelerated and successful career path. He explains how in all education systems math and science stand at the top of the "hierarchy" with the arts at the bottom. The system comes about based on two ideas, subjects that prove useful for work and academic ability.
Finally, you should side with Dr. Huxtable because he has more experience and knows more about how you should use and what you should and should not spend it on than Theo. Those are all of the examples and reasonings why you should side with Dr. Huxtable and not Theo also why you should do good during high school so if your mind changes, and you do want to go to college and get further
In the article "The secret to Raising Smart Kids" I unaware of the complexities that came along with how to raise a child to have a passion for learning. Carol Dweck offers reasoning why students should be taught that success comes from effort, rather than how naturally brilliant or talented they are. Teaching professionals, and also parents should all become aware of the different types of praise can vastly effect a child 's mind set. Student should be welcoming towards a challenge rather than call it quits. This process of teaching students to rely more effort, and have more of a growth mind-set should become part of the teaching program, this could dramatically create a difference in the behavior of students struggle in school.
without competition people wont work for their goals, they will simply adopt the mentality that they get a prize no matter what. The real world dose 't work like that. Schools are supposed to prepare you for the next step in life, Not drag you down. major sports dont give participation points and the players are non the worse for it. Finally, trophies for participation is an absolutely ridiculous idea and it should be
Should middle school students have recess? Middle school students should not have recess at all. This is because they need to grow and mature, they could get distracted from their missing work, and there is more of a chance to get hurt. You may think differently, but there is no denying the facts that prove my opinion. Middle school is a time in a kids life where they have more responsibilities, yet still are allowed to be a child.
