I agree with her because we aren’t all perfect and sometimes we need that extra lesson or we need to repeat the material again. In middle school some of my friends were afraid of flunking the grade because they didn’t want to repeat the grade and of embarrassment. I believe that make them repeat
Technically, teachers are not evaluated on how good students perform on these tests, but feel as if they are held responsible when students fail. They would rather guide their students to work diligently and master the test information, instead they spend valuable time preparing students for these test. Teachers are there to teach students and help them enjoy their time spent at school. Instead students are bored by teachers and are growing to hate them. Most teachers leave schools because of the way they are treated by their students.
In the first part of “Why We Hate Teachers”, he talks of his childhood and told stories of how school was for him. By doing this he gives the view of a child on school, and how the contradictions seem from a child’s point of view. He starts with how got sick as a child and was tricked into getting better. This is a representation of a child doesn’t want He speaks of his teacher, to him not being bad, but his parents refer to her as “stern”, for she punished children very hard. This results in another contradiction that teachers face.
This is important because it shows that the homework can be the cause of the end of one’s education. This also important because then teachers can see why some students just do not try anymore. In addition, one can see this when “They refuse to do homework and it’s lowering their grades” (LAXdoubleK). This shows that students do not even care about their grades because the homework is too much. If students already don't do the work or get that education that they should be going to school for they might just drop out, there's no point to being there in the first place.
Other people may think that we don’t take enough tests. The text stated, “We need a lot of tests to figure out how smart people are getting.” This all may be true, but, parents are complaining that the teachers are “teaching to the test”. Other people may think that we don’t take enough tests while some parents are complaining about all of the testings. This essay has reasons to why too much testing causes stress. The tests cause too much anxiety and stress to people.
Standardized testing evaluates a student’s performance on one particular day ,Many student do not take tests well or learns the same way. Standardized tests are normally the same, some students can’t understand the tests the same as others.There are student who need extra directions, many student will get anxiety taking the test and it hinders their performance. Standardized testing causes many teachers to only “teach to the tests” According the Columbia University article. This practice can hinder a student’s overall learning potential. It hinders the teachers to be creative and the teaching materials being the same can get boring.
Most parents don’t think that it is a good idea for their children to read the book because they think the profanity in it will influence their children as it did for Mark David Chapman, John Hinckley, and Lee Harvey Oswald. Only if the book is taught in high school, people will understand the purpose of the book is not to influence students to do drugs and swear at all. In fact, it is doing the opposite.
The Main argument the author makes is that both teachers and parents are not taking action. The teachers seem to feel sorry for their students and end up passing them, instead of using tools of negative reinforcement such as failure to determine whether the student should graduate. The parents are not supporting the teachers and may end up doing the work for their kids. The one contradiction I see is on the tenth paragraph where she talks about the students she sees at night living a hard life of unemployment, chemical dependencies, abusive relationships
In Alfie Kohn’s argument, “Who’s Cheating Whom?” he explains that cheating happens because students are not engaged in class because of a few different factors, like a lack of interest in a subject, or the pressures of getting good grades instead of learning. He states evidence from different experiments, allowing him to appear more credible, showing that students are more likely to cheat because their school puts more emphasis on how well students do on tests and homework versus how much is being learned in class. Kohn effectively argues that if students were truly engaged in what is being taught, and learning was more encouraged than memorizing and passing a test, cheating would be less of a problem. In simplest terms, cheating is wrong because teachers cannot accurately assess how much is being learned in class, and what they need to improve on the next time they teach that lesson. Kohn stated, “when teachers don’t seem to have a
This leads to teachers struggling to teach students school subjects without causing controversy within the community. These are the teachers who want a better environment in which students grow up learning the truth about U.S. history. Censoring history is making it disappear which results in students’ poor knowledge of who they are or where they came
Students have to worry about studying and knowing everything they were taught. After studying all of the given information, they take the test and realize that a lot of what they studied was not on the test. Education researcher Gregory J. Cizek has said, “illustrating how testing...produces gripping anxiety in even the brightest students…” Standardized testing stresses teachers out because they have to make sure they teach everything they need to by a certain date. They run on a strict teaching schedule when teaching students that will be taking a standardized test. Some students don’t take standardized tests seriously because it doesn’t affect their grades.
As of the others seventy-two percent don’t believe in spanking at all. Corporal punishment are rules to help keep their punishment reliable and in line with school policy that are expected out of students. Children need to be put into place because I have seen many examples of where teachers get very frustrated with students because of back talking, no respect, no manners, etc. Teachers, helpers, anyone who works in the school don’t know what to do anymore because bribery doesn’t work, goals sheets don’t work, taking away recess does not faze them anymore. More discipline in schools is what we need back in every state.
This is why school teachers have a big role in this. Based on this survey students think that the staff is not really of much help when in reality they should feel that they can seek help in them because teachers have a sense of authority and if the students trusted in the staff to tell them what is going on they could do something to maybe halt or change the course of how the bully impacts the student and end the problem or even yet a little advice on the part of the staff on what would be the right thing to do never hurts. There was a situation at Madera High school
They do not agree that they have a responsibility to go over homework or assist their children at home. If their child does poorly in school they will blame the teacher for not doing their job. In contrast, parents apart of a higher social class tend to be more involved in their child’s school work resulting in high expectations of their children 's success in the classroom. Children become more self driven and motivated to complete their assignments and pass classes in hopes of not disappointing their parents. From my own experience, my parents have always been involved in my school activities.
When I was in English class in 8th grade, our teacher performed a test on us, which we were unaware of until it was over. During class the teacher began to berate a student, calling the student unintelligent and lazy. This was a student that other people may have viewed as “unmotivated” or a “burnout” when she was in fact, very intelligent. But because she was commonly stereotyped, the teacher began to pick on this student. The student was well aware that the teacher was doing this as an experiment in her class.
