I had many experiences with failure in my life. One of the failures had changed everything in my life was the time that I failed on the SAT. I remember it was two years ago when I decided to come back to school. I didn’t graduate from high school in U.S, so I had to take a SAT if I want to go to college. I went to school to study English for one year and prepare for the test.
According to Alison Bell from Lexile Measure, she says “You begin to question not only your capabilities but how much you care.” Alison Bell has a good point, you can’t just force kids to take tests and be alright with it. They actually need to be motivated and that starts from home. “Some students cheat just for fun to see if they can get away with it, but most cheat because they do not have time to study and and are in time-crunch” says Christine Probett a managing professor at San Diego University. This shows how students cheat because they do not care about their grades. Their guardians or whoever they live with needs to help them be an educated person so that they could have a bright future.
While at Nashoba, I have only had a few classes that have caused so much distress as my freshman World History class. I left eighth grade with a huge ego in history, but that was middle school and Mr. Sakellarion’s class was a whole new ballpark. Looking back, I should have dropped to accelerated and gotten an easy a, but my pride and love for that class got the better of me, and my grade. For those of you who were wise enough to stick with accelerated, Mr. Sakellarion’s tests and quizzes caused severe anxiety, breakdowns and stress from most of his students, however the day to day classes made that stress worthwhile. From the first test up until the final I struggled in that class, scraping by with mostly C’s and the rare and glorified B
My second rewarding school experience was in high school senior year. I chose my senior experience because I had to fix what I had done my earlier years of high school. I had to retake some classes and sacrifice my time and my teacher 's were willing to do the same to get me to pass. My teacher 's noticed my main struggles were in math and English and we made a plan of success to help me get on the path to graduate. This year is important because of two reasons reason one was it was my senior year and the second reason was that my school was closing down and there wasn 't going to be any summer courses to take to make up the classes.
The writer and teacher, Lindsay Rosasco, creates strong diction through the use of informal word choice. Her diction style relates to her audience, who are teenagers in high school. She is trying to convince them that she is not out to get them, she just wants the best for all of them. Rosasco doesn’t use a higher level of vocabulary or more grandiose style because if she did, then teenagers could turn away from the text and she is writing like how the students talk. By doing this, she lets the readers know that she understands how they live.
I could communicate with my friends more effectively without having to worry about whether they understood. Still, my grades could have been better especially in reading and math. My mother felt that it was the right time to transfer to a public school because tuition cost increased and I was not getting the academic support I needed. I entered my new school in the fourth grade; I received help in reading comprehension and writing. At least three times a week I was taken out of my classroom for small group sessions.
Being unpolite is a practice that can benefit people who are usually taken for granted. First, I look at teachers, those I consider the main group who in general can benefit from being unpolite. Throughout school, they were the prime example of how even the slightest amount of politeness can lead to your kindness being taken as a weakness. I personally witness teachers struggling to gain control of their classes because students found them too lenient but I also witness students having panic attacks because their teachers were strict. The students would constantly test teachers to see how much they could get away with and once they figure out the teacher’s tolerance the reputation memo spread throughout the school.
As a young scholar, I know the adrenaline rush feeling when recieving final exam grades that can determine our weekend. When most persons experience the feeling of an unsatisfactory grade, they tend to be distressed and bitter, blaming everyone and everything other than themselves. Contrariwise, some students optimistically better themselves and plan to be greater in the near future. An influential Spanish teacher, role model and leader named Señora Denise Ali-Gibson once said “You cannot be upset by the results you did not get, from the work you did not do”. This astounding quote has inspired others and myself not to bitter ourselves on what we thought we knew, but to better ourselves on what is to be known.
The year of the test, we had to take our normal Math and English class while an addition HASP prep Math and English so half of my classes where bases around this one test. Not only did it put stress on student it also pressure the teacher because if any student was to fail it would put the teacher in the line of question why the student wasn’t able to pass. Now think about standardized testing in a work environment. Picture it you come in to work every day on time do all the project your manger assign you. You’re the ideal employee and after three year they make you take a one test and you don’t pass the test by a few point.
The right path for students The article “In praise of the F word” by Mary Sherry suggests failure is the biggest motivation for students. However, “Sixty-six percent of all U.S. fourth graders scored below proficient on the 2013 National Assessment of Education Progress (…) meaning that they are not reading at grade level” stated the United States education department. Therefor failing students is not the only way to motivate them. Other effective ways are, students can form study groups, students can attend after school workshops, and Parents can talk to the principle. Indeed, many students have heard of study groups, but how many actually take the time to form one?
These were just extra obstacles that were put in my way for reason to benefit at all, considering I was told that junior year was already the hardest year for any high schooler anyway. I was furious yet frightened to see the thing that I value and work for, to be turned against me and everyone else. Across many schools within Jeffco, students all together performed a walk out during school to protest this issue to point. But this walk out was only the beginning of the Jeffco Recall that many teachers, parents, and students supported and carried out throughout the year. And while we did have to compensate for their poor decisionmaking that year, the recall was eventually set forth and finalized at the beginning of my senior year.
When I turned into a freshman, I decided to transfer to a deaf school for my high school years and graduated there. By then, my struggles with my writing and reading were improving by working hard. IN my freshman, there was an English teacher, Mrs. Copeland-Samaripa, a strict teacher I ever had seen and I failed this class once because of lack of my doing in homework and tests. I didn’t want to repeat the grade so I decided to work hard by studying notes for test and turned homework in on time. For next two years, I really didn’t learn lot about writing because of different teachers weren’t taught me very well then in my senior year, a bearded man, Mr. Dirk, came in my life.
The main points of a school are a place where students can learn and feel safe. Students talk about our classes being too dull and not really a true environment to learn and with the new renovations I feel as if the students would feel like they finally have a place they feel comfortable to study and work at. The other main point is safety one of the most important things maybe not seen by students but valued by teachers and parents. One of the major disasters going throughout the country are school shootings. With the new and improved security system and the setup of superintendents everyone who has to go through the superintendent in order to get into the school thus casing shady characters to not enter.
They have less equipment for students to use. Comparing the education system, what an American science student learns in senior years of high school is what they teach the freshman in university. Instead of finishing in four people end up finishing in 6-7 because of strikes happening because professors are not being paid well them not coming affects the learning of the students.
