“ It’s an easy reason to say no” (Drug Testing, Juneaempire) says Erik Phill. Peer pressure is a huge reason students do drugs, a simple solution is random drug tests. This will cause students to think twice before taking. In middle schools and high schools all around the world, teens feel the pressure of society. The most common pressure is fitting in” or wanting to be cool.¨
Why Drug Testing is Important A quote by Malcom Gladwell states “An aggressive drug testing program would cut down on certain abuses, but it’s never going to catch everyone or even close to everyone.” As you know, drug testing is done to students athlete or not, every year. But schools in several states are wanting to require it for athletes, or students involved in extracurricular activities in Middle school. Although drug tests can be highly unliked in schools, schools should be required to test students because it can discourage drug use, identify students in need of help, and the evidence of the tests can lead to effectiveness.
The most common thing that many people deal with in high school is the fact that they all want to fit in somewhere and want to fit in well. To fit in is to feel more at peace with your life and many people will try their whole life to just fit in. Although some do and some do not, there is still the concept of wanting to fit in that students struggle with. It is an endless battle that you should not have to worry about.
School Wide Writing Project Former superintendent, Lawrence B. Shlack argues in his article, Not Going to College is a Viable Option, that too many students believe that going to college is the only option after high school in order to be successful. The main purpose of this article is to convince students to be less narrow-minded on the topic of post-high school decisions and effectively provides the reasoning behind his logic and provides alternatives. As a retired superintendent, Schlack proves that he has sufficient credibility and knowledge of high school students and what most of them are thinking. The use of pathos and ethos combined with his credibility appeals to the readers strongly by making the article relatable for most high schoolers.
The first and most important cause of kids trying drugs for the first time is the peer pressure. Since little kids, our fathers tell us who should our friends be and who should not, at that time you may think: ¨What’s the problem I can have the friends, I want that’s not their problem¨ but you are wrong, they just want the best for you. Your peers sometimes
In this generation alcohol and drugs are becoming more accessible to children and young adults. If one thinks about it, children and young adults can get drugs from home, parties or even at school. There really is no safe place for children to go and be completely drug free. More children feel that if they have do drugs or if they have drink alcohol this will impress their peers and then it will make them appear cool. When the child wants to fit in with their peers, then they will do anything to fit in with there peers.
Mandatory activities should be enforced into the school systems. To many kids are not contributing enough to their school by just being superb in the classroom. Some kids don 't even discover their ability because they are scared of not making the team or being joked on. That is one of the essential reasons why I think that extracurricular activities should be imposed to every single kid in the school. Also extracurricular activities is a fun time for everybody even if you don 't like what you are being forced to do, you will find something marvelous out of it.
This issue is a serious and a must tackled issue to be discussed for the enlightenment of the students’ mind, because in college, students are supposed to be focused in studying for the success of their future, but for students who want to replace the school uniform that’s usually never the case because of the time and money they will spent to wear faddy clothes. Most teenagers make first impressions which are mostly based on the clothes you wear to classify you as a nerd, a geek, a jock, the queen bee, and any other typical cliché names. Nobody will be friends with you if you are dressed like a geek or a goth, but that’s the problem teens are judged before getting to know the kindness that is actually hidden underneath all
Motivation is an important thing in our life. without motivation no one can live because it helps anyone to achieve his goals for example if a person in the school or college study to get a good mark in the exam so if his parent motivates him he will spend more hours to study to the exam and he will not only get a good mark but he will get a full mark. So motivation help everyone to study or work hard to achieve his goal. Motivation is the characteristic that helps to achieve the goals of a person and it is the energy that keep everyone going even when they fall. There are many theories for motivation there is two that is good to talk about it.
How are we able to teach the kids of today, if we don 't teach ourselves and stay current with the times. I can tell you that as a child with dyselxia, I see all of these current tablets and other learning methods that are being inplemented and I am so happy for the students that are able to benefit from using the items, I wish that I had those things at my disposal when I was in school, i 'm sure it took someone who had a passion for the schools and kids to come up with a way to integrate these items and findings that hepled the kids to succeed. I think that we need more teachers that will constantly try new methods of learning and teaching. I was one of those kids that wouldn 't understand your way of teaching no matter how many times you repeated yourself to me, and often I was told to visit the teacher during office hours instead . Yet the moment you explained it to me in a different way I would get and never forget.
Having their athletes workout at a young age every once in awhile isn’t that big of a deal, but everyday, that’s overdoing it! Young athletes generally have high spirits and big dreams, but having a coach who only criticizes them and never lifts them up can easily demoralize anyone 's dreams! Magic Johnson said this quote, “All young athletes need is a little hope, and someone who believes in them.” (Johnson) I agree with that 100%, because most coaches can’t see how their coaching tactics are tearing down their athletes instead of building them up because it’s never been brought to their attention. However, there was one situation where a coach was being overly aggressive towards the players on his team, and even after being told to stop he still didn’t change his
1. After watching this video I learned that the first generation college students in the late 1960s struggled so much so we could be in this excellent program so we could succeed. Nobody should ever be neglected an education like those students. We have many opportunities as the result of their actions and sacrifices because they fought so that this program could be as successful as it is. If those courageous students would have not spoken up and fight for their rights I would have not been here right now.
In the article Daquan was part of the ASAP program which gave him an advisor for his time in school that would help him and motivate him. Massasoit also has great programs to help student like us but again it is up to us the students whether or not to be
I do not believe that steroids should be legalized in competition because it would give an unfair advantage to those who choose to use the drug. For the athletes that choose no to use the drug, they are more likely to lose. Steroids are already used for what they need to be used for legally. Currently, in medicine, they are a medication used to treat certain conditions. They are legally used for a good reason and when someone abuses them for the wrong reasons, than it becomes an addictive drug.
Campuses are a place where students all deserve to feel safe. Trigger warnings are a way to do this. Greg Lukianoff feels that trigger warnings coddle students minds and prevent them from growing and learning. In the interview for The Atlantic Lukianoff talks about how lack of a trigger warning made a student feel normal again for the first time in years, however this is often not the case for people with disorders like post-traumatic stress disorder. This is an example of how some people feel their freedom of speech is being compromised Triggered reactions are not only highly unpleasant, but can overtake one’s consciousness by causing a flashback, or a number of other things.
