Students not being used to freedom, for example, causes them to not be prepared for the over amount of freedom given during college. This leads kids to put off homework, not go to class, and other bad habits because they are not used to managing their time. These habits can lead to an unsuccessful college carrer, eventually leading to dropping out. A second example at the meso level is students getting caught up in partying on the weekends or even during the week. For a lot of students, being away from their parents means absolute freedom to do whatever they want, allowing a lot of young adults to “go crazy” in the partying scene.
For example, young adults are being told how their lives are going to turn out. If they aren't smart enough, they won't be able to go to college, or since they are a troublemaker they aren’t going to go anywhere in life. In Anthem they are being told and it is predicted what they are going to do for the rest of their lives. Anthem is giving young adults a great objective to connect to because it shows how the people in the novel are being isolated from people all around them. A lot of teens feel like they are isolated from people in school because they fear either that they don't fit in or their classmates don't like them for some reason.
I have learned that the boy you think you 're in love with in junior high may stop talking to you in high school. I have learned to always give people a chance because it 's the person you never thought you would be friends with that could end up being your best friend. I have also learned that coming from a wealthy family or being a star athlete can get you a long way and help get you out of trouble. One of the most important lessons I have learn is to stop caring what people think of you because there will always be someone who doesn 't like you and some people are always going to talk about you behind
To the Younger Generation, oh how I wish there was an easy way to get through this thing they call high school. To be honest, I would search for that every day of my life as I go through high school and I can say that there is no easy way. High school is a necessary evil that is different for every single person that attends. It is fun and then it is not want you would like at all. As you venture through it you will soon realize these things and this is my way of telling you how to best go through it with the most ease.
I could try to invite the people into our group and maybe instead of an outsider my friends and I could make them part of the group so they can feel the feeling of being an insider. I could have made them feel welcome on the first day of school and get off to a good start, but it is too late for that and now I will have to start from the bottom and get him into the
Parents play a big role in their child’s lives because they provide a sense of direction for them. It is natural for a child to look up to his/her mom or dad. If a young adult doesn’t have the help from their parents who have already experienced college then they are already behind the kids who are able to use their parents as a resource. A quote by Nijay Williams in the article says, “My mom stopped school in the ninth grade; my dad stopped in the fourth grade … It makes it harder for me, [and] most of the people I graduated with are not in college, but that’s what I see myself doing; I want to go to college.
Have you ever felt alone or isolated from the world? Well from being in middle school, I’ve learned that some people feel as if the world revolved around them. They do things they never would’ve done. Yet, they still do it just to try to fit in the crowd. From many experiences, I have learned that it’s ok to not be with the crowd since the crowd isn’t always the best option.
Author Larry Cublin believes that students in high school should know about this topic “ Why everyone shouldn’t go to college” due to the fact that students don’t know how many years they want to go to college, hot they are going to pay for college, and they realize college is not for them. They way that I see it is that everyone may not want to go to college because they already have a mindset on what they want to do. For instance, most students think they know what they want and what to do but they don’t realize that there are alternatives like taking a vocational program that is only two years which is less time to waste in college and you are able to work quicker after those two years, but the downfall is that you won’t get paid much
Social Loafing- I think that social loafing happens a lot in high school and college in group projects. Maybe not as much in college as in high school because people know that they need to help achieve a grade or goal. I have seen, when I was in high school, that others did not want to help get the goal that everyone was working towards. I especially see this in the boys in high school I think that most boys think they can just slide by without doing as much work when in a group setting. I personally did not let this happen in my group projects
Don 't follow your friends, because they take a certain class it doesn 't benefit you in the long run. When picking classes, learn about the classes that they provide. In the field you want to pursue, and if you don 't know what field pick what interest you. There is a class called Advancement Via Individual Determination.
People in America probably feel like they have no future if they don’t get into college, they won 't get the job they want and their parents will feel disappointed in their children, the students will have a bad life most people think. In Sweden, we are too lucky about living here that we don’t realize that, even when people tell us we don’t care, not that many people have their highest expectations about getting into college, because there is always next year, and actually quite easy to get into college. In Sweden, many kids have their lives handed to them for free, but in the U.S, the students have to work hard to get a good life and pay a high price for it. In the documentary the students didn’t have very high-tech phones or computers, they didn’t use Facebook or like any other social media, they texted, emailed and called, but no real social medias.
The book, Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley introduces a theoretical world where life is simple and content. The new world is made up of human beings that are conditioned for predestined roles in what is called the World State. The World State uses a cloning process to create clones that are conditioned to perform identical tasks at identical machines. This process is one of the tools used to implement the World State’s motto: “Community, Identity, Stability.” This motto and world tend to resemble worlds of utopia, where everything is perfect and there are no highs and lows in life.
