Instilling these lessons helps navigate them into the real world post high school. High School teachers should include important life lessons/methods for teens to survive life after high school. The reason is, in high school students are learning how to become young women and men and knowing how ways on how to go about doing income taxes, managing their funds, and other critical skills that come with being an adult. Adding life lessons in a schools curriculum is helping students become responsible and also teaching them accountability.

Clarity can give an individual through focus in isolation. As Colonel Graff and the other Generals talk, they discuss how Ender should be handled in battle school. They believe they must isolate Ender from others in battle school. “Isolate him enough that he remains creative—otherwise he’ll adopt the system here and we’ll lose him. At the same time, we need to make sure he keeps a strong ability to lead.” (Card 70). The Generals believe that in order for Ender to become the great leader that they think he is capable of being, he cannot have any distractions. He needs to focus to earn the rank of the leader or he will have a bad influence from the other kids. Focus is a very important part of isolation. Moreover, a person

Everything was black until my rude awakening. I woke up to the sound of my alarm clock shrieking like no tomorrow. I throw myself out of my bed trying not to fall back asleep. I think to myself, Great, another day of school, and that was my first thought, the first thing I thought about the day, but what I would be thinking later would be much worse. Tomorrow I have my first geometry unit and next week I would be having my first geometry quiz. I walk upstairs, because my room is in the basement, and I open the door to find my dad sitting at the table. “Good morning,” he exclaimed, as I start to put on my ID. My dad usually has a great attitude in the morning, which is kind of ironic to me because usually people are cranky in the morning.
