Before you know it, your child could no longer have a music program at their school. With school budgets constantly being cut, the arts are in trouble. This will leave many kids with no creative outlet to stimulate their minds. Many do not realize how important the music department is for developing many skills used in life. Music education is an essential part of learning and should be provided in all schools.
During the camp, there were so many girls that had self-doubts about math and how they couldn’t do it. It was hard in the beginning trying to tell the girls that math can be fun if we try and use art skills to solve math problems. The first week was the hardest because the girls didn’t want to work at all because the girls that were good at math were always showing off and the girls that were having struggles didn’t want to get involved in math even if art was brought in. Once the more shy and doubting girls started to get involved in the math games/ art, they were able to get the hang of it fast that the other counselors would have to help them once in a while which showed just how much the girls were starting to have fun with math. The last week of camp, the girls were more confident in math that it made things easier that we would all start making math games and hang out with the girls.
There was no clear rules or transitions for the kids to follow. The teacher would always change the room around and told the kids to sit where they wanted. Of course, the kids would sit with their friends. She always confused the kids on the arrival time due to not knowing where to sit in class. The tone of her math class was a mess the kids were all talking and sometimes would be waiting for her to come to the room.
She believes the syllabus provided to students do not include any challenging books, and her belief toward high school teachers becoming too lazy to examine thoroughly if the book the education system provides them with represent any true and significant value is a recurring concern of hers’- therefore ineffective to students. All in all, Prose used ethos, pathos, logos and the usage of specific words to help her argument. She successfully persuades her point of view and makes it clear that if schools want their curriculum to improve, they must change their way of teaching and push their students to view literature in a new
All students dread one thing when it comes to school - testing. Standardized test are the main focus in our school systems instead of actually gaining knowledge at the end of the year. As a mother, Michelle Rhee, understands the lack of attention given on education as a whole instead of just waiting on the scores, but she still agrees on continuing with standardized test. Kristina Rizga opposes the opinion of Michelle Rhee as she does not believe standardized test truly measure the intelligence of a student. Kristina Rizga proves her stand against standardized test by utilizing solid use of argumentation.
Horrible Years of Kyra Gibson’s Youth So if you are in the mood to listen to the horrible tales of my childhood due to horrifying school that does nothing but antagonize their students. You came to the right place. 4th grade “Test” Sitting at my desk waiting to take my test as my teacher is walking around handing out the papers saying “If you need any help, come ask me.” The papers are all handed out and we get to work. I had been having trouble with math so about part way through the test I needed help. So I go to the teacher and show her what I need help with.
You walk into your new school and you are treated dreadfully. You don’t think it could get worse, but sadly you find out that you don’t anyone else in class with you. Your family is being affected too. I thought that Ruby had a hard time with the beginning of her life. I thought that Ruby did a great job on getting into a good school and ignoring the people who were rude to her.
If students don’t have to deal with being bullied, then everybody would be happy. For instance, my sister when she was in school, she used to get bullied every single day. They would call her 4-eyes, they would knock her books out of her arms, push her around the hallway, and then she would come home crying because of how they tortured her in school. She then decided to send an anonymous letter to her principal asking him to please start grading students on their conduct. She also thought that she might add to the letter what “some students” were doing to her everyday so she did.
Why wouldn't you want all students to be given an equal opportunity to succeed? Some believe that school is strictly for learning academically so that they may be successful out of school. However, many students come from broken homes who hardly see their parents or their parents aren’t in there lives. Many kids who go to high school are homeless or have to juggle adult responsibilities at a younger age, and still try to be success in order to get the same results as kids who are more privileged. The idea of not including life skills class is also supported by the school district having to put in extra work to find new teachers, new classrooms, and new lesson plans.
Knowledge and information are increasing at such an astronomical rate. What may appear true today could be proven to be false tomorrow and the jobs that students will get after they graduate may not yet exist. This is the reason why students need to be taught how to process, evaluate and use information to apply in all the areas of life because teaching them ideas and facts without teaching them how to use them in real-life settings is no longer enough. Schools need to adapt and develop new ways of teaching and learning that would prepare students for success after graduation and prioritize the knowledge and skills that will be in the greatest demand such as those skills deemed to be most important by college professors and employers. In fact, since 2014, De La Salle Lipa has been offering the DepEd approved two-year Senior High School curriculum for students based on the career track of their choice.
