Many people might have let this get to them but it didn't Sherman. Sherman proved them wrong and showed them that he could do it. In conclusion in Sherman Alexie's book “Indian Education” it talks about how the different stereotypes affected his life.The stereotype affected his life by making him try harder in school, and try to be a better person. Sherman went through a lot in school he was stereotyped by many names but in the end it all turned out better. He became valedictorian of his class, and he became a better
If free college tuition was given, students would have more time to educate themselves, plus be well rested instead of being tired from time consuming jobs. Next, I believe free college tuition should be given because there are students from underprivileged families that work hard in school and deserve the opportunity for a college education. Also, if free college tuition was given, a number of students would be motivated to work harder and try in school to get
Given that the audience is teenagers who are struggling, it is an amazing book that promotes a relatable feel. Teenagers can find inspiration in following one’s dreams just like Junior does when he switches schools. They can find it helpful to see the true role of friendship being shown when Junior never gives up on Rowdy. Also, when Penelope and Roger find out that Junior is poor, and they don’t judge him. They can also find inspiration in Junior and his courage against everyday bullies on the reservation and at Rearden.
Lake Hamilton School District has seen me grow from a nervous and excited kindergartener into an anxious independent young adult. Although the road to getting here wasn’t the easiest I have learned many life lessons along the way. I have learned that you will lose and gain best friends along the way. I learned the best friends you thought you could trust may eventually stab you in the back. I have learned that the boy you think you 're in love with in junior high may stop talking to you in high school.
Although most people think that having no money makes you homeless, in fact, to be considered homeless you just have to not have a permanent home. Some statistics would be 55% unemployed, 33% alcohol abuse, 15% drug abuse, 3% physically disabled (O’Reilly-Fleming 38). Homelessness usually starts from tragic life occurrences/events, death, job loss, violence, and disabilities. On the other hand, a multitude of
Our hypothesis is that girls to do a little bit better than boys because normally boys care less about rules than girls do. We also expect freshmen to do better than sophomores, because sophomores have already a brief look on high school, and freshmen are still really new to this setting. This will be verified after all recordings have been compared. All videos will be analyzed and compared by the same group of students. Our experimental study will be ethical because a letter explaining the procedures of videotaping has been assigned to all students attending the school at the beginning of the year..
You learn that you came in this world on your own and you 'll probably exit on your own as well. You learn that having them may be a blessing but when it 's time to let go, you learn that you should. With that, you learn that not everyone you meet are supposed to stay forever. You learn that some people are only meant to grace in your life and teach you a valuable lesson and then departs after. You learn the richness of losing attachments to people, that sometimes, losing your connection with them isn 't the most catastrophic thing in the world but it 's actually profitable to who you are.
Of course, that was more of a scare tactic to make sure we weren’t bad kids. The exchange from eighth grade to freshman year was actually pretty easy. Most high school teachers are surprisingly nice and lenient when it comes to certain assignments and things, and a lot of them sympathize with your problems. My first problem was trying to find people I could talk to because most of my friends were divided among other classes and I, being the only teenager in the world without a cellphone, was not able
I had to come with the understanding that junior high is the next big step in school and this is where you start seeing your social clicks like your jocks the gothic kids. Sometimes I didn’t understand why they had there own clicks, but I had to start thinking and put myself in there shoes because I didn’t understand why they were different from me. Now in my everyday life as a highschooler I still use that lesson that I learned so long ago. Even as I get older I may not understand always understand why some people people act different but I can do my best by not judging and putting myself into their shoes. This was one of my most valuable lessons that my parents have handed down to me and I call it as “wisdom that granted over time” because it has take years for me to understand and be really open minded that the world can be a very different place for some
These features produce stronger individuals, thus strengthening the community at large. With a more diverse student body, there is a higher chance that students will interact with people of different backgrounds. This type of interaction will improve social development for students, as students are provided with the opportunity to expand their circle of friends. Whether or not an individual utilizes that opportunity is up to them. When looking at improving diversity on a
