Utilizing music to help students’ motivation in math is a great strategy. Too often students find math to be challenging and complicating. When students find something familiar in a complicated subject, it becomes not so challenging but rather interesting. Music entices the memory, therefore, it makes easier to remember.
(Graff 400) By allowing students express their nonacademic interests in schoolwork then students will be more interested and motivated to do well in school. So no matter what you’re most interested in or have the most knowledge about, if you’re an expert on it, you’re an intellect. My nonacademic pursuit is playing the violin, which is very challenging. You have to learn many things in order to play it correctly and not sound terrible. It takes time and patience to learn
Arts and Music Education in the public schools of the United States of America ¨Arts experiences boost critical thinking, teaching students to take the time to be more careful and thorough in how they observe the world¨ (Yacht). This quote from the source ¨Arts Education Matters: We Know, We Measured It¨ talks about the benefits that students get from arts education. This quote shows the importance that arts education has on young students. Most of the public school systems in America do not give the arts and music departments in schools enough money to thrive and grow. Public Schools in the United States of America lack the needed support and funding for the arts and music programs in the school systems.
According to Jenny, who moved from Korea to the United States, “Sports are a big deal here” (10). Amanda Ripley adds that at Shawnee high school in Korea “If they were in the local newspaper, it was because of their academic achievements, not because they won a game” (10). This evidence obviously proves that the U.S really does differ from other countries ideas on education. Academies need to focus more on how much the U.S is different from other countries educationally. There are multiple reasons of why school sports should be abolished; the more noticeable reasons are because pupils do not get enough sleep, athletics cost way too much for schools, and students will have better grades.
As it is easy to see in American schools, many children are easily distracted and tend to rank education low on their list of priorities. To combat this, school administrators are considering implementing a more professional dress code so that students will treat their education with more seriousness. The plan sounds good on paper. In real life, however, it will not work. Schools should not adopt a more professional dress code because professional clothes are too restrictive, the strict code will create numerous problems, and many families cannot afford professional clothes.
Student debt is one of the biggest issues that people are struggling with. Especially for those graduates whose major does not guarantee a stable job due to the limited amount of job positions, such as art history and music majors, many of them end up being a freelancer because job unavailability. Governments often encourage the citizens to spend more and help improve the economy, but how could the citizens help when they don’t have the spending power due to the heavy student debt that they are carrying. A good way to improve the economy is by solving the issue of student debt. With the help of the “Organ for Ed” program, both the job seeking and economic problems would dissolve at once.
Citizens of America should look at the different schools and the funding they receive compared to the environment the students live in. One may realize that the educational system is not right, giving one school more money because of the location. Once people realize this they can write to the government or even protest my pulling their kids out of the school to show how providing one school more money is going to give the students at the poorer school a smaller chance at being successful, meaning those students may not get a job to support a family or just them. Making the funding equal would make America better as a whole because more students will go to college, receive degrees, and get better
Such as it is because of the large number of middle and upper class families often more important to the training of their children, this also increased the formation of unequal opportunity. Low income parents couldn't spend as much money to let children music lessons, to travel or to participate in the summer camp activities to enrich children's knowledge, broaden their horizons. They also because their education levels difficult to counseling children or help their children to complete homework. Not only that, they rarely teach children how to regulate their own behavior or who set goals. Of course, they're also less likely to give children a lot of encouragement and hope to stimulate their children to study and work in the potential to achieve more, this is a society Unequal.
Some children just need that special attention and why hold them back in a regular classroom when they can get special help and thrive. While a child may be able to survive in a normal class, it truly is not going to help them reach their full potential. It’s like someone who is in a wheelchair, they may be able to survive without it but with it they can go so much farther and do so much more. I believe special education will still be here in the future and hopefully will continue improving as the years go on.
