Gatto also speaks about how boredom comes from oneself, and how we should always find something that interests us. First, Gatto states “Do we really need school?” This is where he starts explaining his opinion and describing his own experience about how schooling is not important. Then he goes on to talk about how school is only teaching us to become good citizens but not to truly educate ourselves and learn more.
He asserts that the high levels of plagiarism would decrease if appropriate punishments and consequences followed the action of not giving credit where credit is due: “Teachers must be vigilant, and students who plagiarize must be punished swiftly and severely” (p. 103). Delvin believed that punishments should be severe as all students have been educated about the issue of plagiarism through scholarly institutions or common morals: “all students instinctively know… that it is wrong to steal someone else’s ideas, words, or facts” (p. 105). Delvin also claims that “[prohibited actions] begin to drop only when increased enforcement and stricter … penalties [are] enforced” (p. 105). Due to the students’ prior knowledge about the subject, one would expect that they would uphold to the regulations. However, as students still continue to plagiarize, the appropriate punishment for their actions should be strictly
The lesson that Marta learns remain an important one for all people across the world to learn since first impression is ordinarily wrong, which happens when one person judge others based on their outward appearance and initial impression. This might hurt others feelings and causing people to think wrongly about an individual, like Marta. Instead, society members should know each other further, before judging them, therefore they will not misunderstand the person. Hopefully, Scat will change individuals to become less judgmental, just like the main character, Marta, and thereby creating an improved society for everyone to
The honor code or honor systems is known by educators across the nation. The honor code is used to keep students from making bad decisions educational wise, for example, cheating and plagiarism, therefore, the honor is used to keep students inside the behavioral codes that the honor code has to offer. The honor code is very controversial because of the codes that the system delivers. The system is very influential to the students and creates a behavioral impact that allows the students to follow by the codes and to have complete freedom. The process of the honor code should be maintained due to the honesty and pledges of the students to increase their success.
I think that the man was doing the right thing by going out and following his owns ways. The teacher could have been wrong and by listening to the teacher he has conformed to society and what they think instead of thinking about his own ideas and how he really feels about the topic. This would lead them all into the wrong path. If you keep doing the wrong thing you can never reach the peak in knowledge ,which is supposed to help a person strive to be unique and break out from that bubble of conformity. Why should people always the the same thing instead of keeping an open mind and expressing how they feel not how everyone feels and that topic?
He acts as a counselor for his students and sees the pressure they put on themselves. He tries to give them speeches of freedom and hope but the students want a “map” (Zinsser 2). The students want a perfect plan for their lives, they desire security. Zinsser, on the other hand, wishes “them the right to experiment, to trip and fall, to learn that defeat is as instructive as victory.” (Zinsser 2).
My school would greatly benefit from the application of an honor code as long as such a code is approved by the student body. Such an honor code would bring about students to reconsider their actions before cheating on a test. This is because an honor code has the ability to create a culture among students which discourages cheating. Also, including harsh punishments within the honor code would dishearten students from cheating out of fear of potential consequences. Schools which have not benefited from honor codes are very different from Classical, and therefore do not prove that an honor code would be ineffective at Classical.
Sometimes people critic based on the actions you make. I think you must carry yourself in a respective way and that way you don’t give any reason for people to talk of you or critic you. I really think it would be a good idea if school systems use the ethics moral from Kant, that way our kids would learn early in life. Kant hard work paid off to help people understand and learn the moral values, people that rad about his moral values could learn many things especially on how to deal in making decisions and how actions have
Believe it or not cheaters do have many reasons for their treasons. For instance, performance concerns, external pressure, unfair professors, and lack of effort. Those are just some of things that cheaters use to justify their cheating. Before you can end cheating you have to understand their thought process. “It is important to understand what motivates students to cheat because having alternative solutions to the pressures that lead good students to be dishonest may be helpful as you work to encourage your students
This annotated bibliography is to inform people how poverty in America affects the education of students. We should not let this affect why our education system is failing, because education should be the student’s way out of poverty, it is a way of fighting it. We as teachers help them better themselves to live a better lifestyle and encourage them to want to get out of the poverty. We as teacher are here to remind them and support them as they succeed along their journey of fighting poverty.
Easy work isn’t going to change the student 's mindset. This will just make it harder for the student to learn new things, difficult things, as in this case they would want to give up and not try. Dweck also states, “Kids need to be given hard problems, instead of being rewarded for easy problems” (22). Difficult work is what needs to be given to students to help them learn and the process of making mistakes. Students need to know that making mistakes is sometimes ok.
The two extreme positions either rest on the argument that trigger warnings should be mandatory because victims should not be exposed to traumatizing topics while learning, or that they are detrimental because it coddle students. Both positions need to be examined in order to understand why one side weighs heavier than the other. First, some people argue that these warnings should be a mandatory part of the curriculum for the emotional well-being of students. Trigger warnings are a way for students to have control over an unjust situation where they might feel traumatized. Trauma in the classroom disengages the student and impedes their willingness to learn.
A club or community center could help the student better assimilate and cope with the change differently than I can better they could better understand the student’s feelings. Also, an important step is to have an open mind and self-awareness. No one is perfect and mistakes are likely to happen; therefore, both parties needs to have an open mind and understand that I could take time to find the “happy medium” of the cultures. Also, understanding the bias and racial issues that could exist in the school is important because it helps put the student’s cultural issues with context (Arrendonado, 2001). For instance, the group of Arab students where I work is pretty big in which they have a built in support system; if the group was smaller, then they could feel more
In period two, Global Studies A, we learned about human nature (conformity, obedience, moral dilemmas). We learned the power of conformity. As a student, I, myself has conformed with my friends, I was afraid of being different, of getting judged. As humans, we conform, we may know that option A is wrong, but everyone else says option A, so we choose option A so we aren’t different.
