Obviously, that is not enough, therefore students will not have the motivation any more to get good grades the next year, because they want something more. I think students should get paid for good grades for several reasons, for example it will motivate the students to work hard, teach the students responsibility, and it will make the teacher’s job easier. Some students around the world are asking this question, “should students be paid for good grades”. Some students say yes we should, because students are working hard to get good grades, so they deserve a proper gift. Imagine the situation if the school pays the student who gets good marks.
Parents from working-class families passed on feeling of powerlessness when dealing with professionals to their children (Lareau, 2002). In contrast, middle-class parents were confident when criticising professionals such as educators as a result of their own education. They also had a wider vocabulary so they understood the interactions with professionals more than working class parents did. Working class parents were not as aware of the terms being used in these interactions and often appeared confused (Lareau, 2002). Working class and poor families although distrustful of professionals, tend to be overly accepting while middle-class parents translate skills in how to negotiate the child’s way through his or her own life path.
It just takes a little attention and hard working to get to know someone and to trust each other. I learned this lesson during SEW week and it was amazing to see other people’s true colors and their identity being revealed. I also learned that team work is always better and important than individual or independent work, team work helps you finish work earlier and efficiently than independent does and trusting each other helps to build up a strong team. I in addition learned that you can’t get a perfect relationship with some of the kids because you don’t connect with them and put your prideness aside and blend in with them. When I tried talking to one of the girls, they said about their situation at home and how they ended up the place they are today and also about what they do after you graduate high school.
Literary Essay: “Charles” Shirley Jackson’s realistic fiction story, “Charles,” takes place mainly in Laurie’s kitchen, where he talks to his parents every day about how his day was. Laurie is starting Kindergarten and this makes his mom super emotional. On the first day when Laurie comes home, he talks about a disruptive boy named Charles who is in his class. Before long, each day when Laurie comes home it becomes almost routine that he informs his parents what bad thing Charles did that day in class and what punishment the teacher would give him. This problem creates a theme of when a person tells you something, it may not always be true.
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.
all students must enroll in honors or Advanced Placement courses, 5.) AVID methodologies should be taught, 6.) the program should be reading and writing intensive, 7.) group work/collaboration and learning should be promoted, 8.) trained college level tutors should be available to mentor students, 9.)
Many people would argue, perhaps, that the children need to do less extracurricular activities if they know they don’t have enough time to do them and finish their homework. But many studies have shown that extracurricular activities are more important for a child’s development than homework is. “Extracurricular activities [also] teach kids the importance of perseverance, hard work (training/practice), and build up their competitive spirit, something they will undoubtedly need upon entrance to the extremely competitive business world.” (www.behk.org,
“Should students be paid for good grades?”. It is a common question asked by many teachers and parents. Mothers, father, and educators debate whether paying for good grades is effective, and helps children academically, or brings down their grades and motivation. Many parents argue that paying their children for getting good grades can help boost their child’s motivation to learn, while other parents disagree, claiming that bribing their children to be successful doesn’t work in the long term. Students that receive money over a long course of time have shown lower academic performances.
This is why I propose that homework should be abolished from school in order to reduce stress or other symptoms, to create time for family/friends or socializing, and make school a fun place for students to learn rather than collecting pointless homework that could be done in class. When you think of homework what memories do you remember? Do you remember the stressful nights filled with headaches and little sleep because all you did was finish a project you would never need again or study for a test that you would never take again. The point is that homework equals stress of 4,300 students at primary schools in California 77% said that it causes stress and 56% say it is a primary stressor. Students were also asked by researchers whether they had experienced symptoms such as stress,
That or those who struggle financially. John Hopkins University claims, “Paying students for grades seemed to improve attendance amongst both low achieving and lower to middle class students.” Even if it does show improvement, Brooks and Goldstein go on to say, “Our education system has determined that students who struggle need a greater degree of external motivation to stay engaged in academic tasks.” This means that using money is a successful motivational source, but it doesn’t work by itself. Students need more than just cash to push them to do their best. There are other more potent motives than just money. Every student is different, so each one has their own personal motive.
Scurlock makes a moving documentary as he focuses on the effects of debt that occur to students. He describes two incidents where college students have taken their own lives because of debt. “[Mitzi] had hanged herself in her dorm room after racking up credit card debt” (Scurlock 153) and “Sean moved back home… told his mother he felt like a failure, and two days later, hung himself” (155). Because of debt, many other students have cut their lives short. Debt is a fear young students believe that would not impact their lives so long as they get a high paying job after college.With debt incorporated into their lives, they just want to be financially
In the working class schools, the student’s attitudes reflected what the teachers felt about their job. The teachers lacked passion for their job and did not want to be there anymore than the students. The principal not knowing the history of the school plays a role on why the school was poorly maintained. The middle class school had more parents involved than working class school. This can be the result of the parents socioeconomic status since middle class parents have better paying jobs allowing them more participation in their child’s school.
