Going into highschool, usually students tend to have a difficult time still being close with their old friends and begin to drift away. In middle school I made friends and I stuck with them for the rest of middle school. Coming into high school my old friends were in a different building or attended a different class and I was scared of making new friends. After a while of getting used to the school I made friends with people who went to the same middle school as me which made it less scary. More often than not students fear the cafeteria and I as a freshman had that fear because it was filled with different grades from 9th to 12th graders.
Class environment is where students and teachers can communicate on a specific lesson so that students become more knowledgeable of that topic. Usually the two types of teaching methods that happen in class are banking and problem-posing. The banking method is where the teacher is superior to the students in such that the students do not interact with the teacher, but instead record what the teacher says. After recording the information on paper, they then memorize every information given to them by the teacher or on the board. In addition, students are not taught to critically think about the information since they are just copying and pasting.
The increase of the amount of students attending school was in correlation with employers rejecting dropout students, preventing the uneducated from finding work. Within schools, classes became larger in numbers due to the fact that more students were enrolling with less teachers to educate them. Overall, the Great Depression effected all of society, including education. Returning to the Philip Sheffield High School yearbook, compared to yearbooks to later come, the 1937-1938 yearbook is limited. Similar to other yearbooks, the students who the yearbook primary focused on was the grade twelves.
Soft drinks and junk food preventing focus and academic success is an important topic to approach because it can eventually affect one’s future in the rest of high school, in college, and in
Being a Web leader can help me become more aware of these things, and make me a better person, while helping others. I will still know these kids, and when they even come to high school, and when i am a senior, I can help them as a freshman too. This program can impact my life, and everyone is nervous on the first day of school, and the teachers can only do so much. Taking them on a tour answering questions, can all make them feel less nervous. Hearing it from a student that has gone to Transit will be easier than a teacher, because we were once in their
As a student in high school did you ever feel like the standardized test are helping you or making you get in to a better college? Have you ever thought about how many hours students and teachers spend preparing for the standardized test? Many hours and studying are being put into those test but are they really effective and are the test doing the students good in life? Standardized tests are really just to effective, teachers and students spend too much time on them and it’s not doing the students any good, and even it’s not doing the teachers any good. Standardized tests in schools today in Ohio should be stopped because they are causing for teachers to be evaluated by the test results of how the students do on the tests, they are having the students more stressed about school and do they benefit you in colleges and university and do they really look at how well students do on them test.
Every student coming into the upcoming school expects to learn things from an academic standpoint, and quite often personal growth is overlooked. When students are taught how to properly read and analyze literature, the students mainly focus on their improved abilities and miss lessons that can be learned from the stories themselves. When papers are due and are being written the night before, sometimes thoughts such as “this is stupid,” or “why does this matter,” arise instead of thinking about not procrastinating and understanding that paper was put off. As a senior on the verge of graduating, I can say I have finally realized the best parts of academics, the life lessons learned and the social aspect. Yes the content learned is very important,
School Suspensions Are a Waste of Time Would you take school suspensions away if it would benedict the school? Many school have always used school suspensions as their way of chastisement, simply because it is the easiest way. School suspensions became popular around the 1960s and 70s because many more fights were occurring due to desegregation. Although school suspensions are widely used throughout most schools, it is time we found a more effective way of discipline. School suspensions are not working because students may not understand what they did wrong, suspensions feel more like time off than a punishment, and students are more likely to act out again after being suspended.
Make High School Great Again Most adults remember high school as the best years of their lives; however, this is not the reality for students today. The majority of teenagers would agree that high school is currently dreadful, mainly due to the outrageous bulk of homework they receive each night. Homework is now consuming students’ lives, leaving no free time to have fun, attend extracurricular events, sports games etc.
Sometime you can get too busy with your work or job and school that you don’t really have time with your friends. Once I found out who my real friends are I felt a whole lot better because I knew that I could count on them. Yeah, we all have
After three quarters and over six months, I was able to go to an in depth interview with the teacher of the classroom that I peer tutor. Mr. Kanna the U.S. History teacher for juniors, has been working with me in order to help spread the knowledge further for the entire class. My role in the class is to help out the students in the classroom on any questions they have for U.S. History. Over the months, I have gotten into a routine, in which I help anyone who has a question for the home/classwork or to connect an event/person of the past to today or to be there for moral support in the class. I have personally take great joy in helping out the students in any way possible.
All this hard work leads here to graduation, and they have earned it. These individuals put off desire and even life goals to achieve a brighter tomorrow, even if that means spending a Friday night at Willis Library or neglecting hobbies. They exert extreme care into their future with the assumption tomorrow has greater potential than today. “You can play now or play later” a phrase many undergrads are reminded constantly. Unfortunately, a growing concern inhabits the minds of college students, parents, and faculty after the Virginia Tech shooting.
During school it might be boring to do work but at the end we all learn new things. Also, many of us get lectured from our parents about a bad grade or a poor decision, but after middle school or high school the advice pays off to know about. Even though, lots of people know what they did and might be honest with the choice they made and that will help them with avoiding the roadblocks of knowing they were lying to the parent. To avoid the roadblocks is to do the right thing and make the better choice.
The main points of a school are a place where students can learn and feel safe. Students talk about our classes being too dull and not really a true environment to learn and with the new renovations I feel as if the students would feel like they finally have a place they feel comfortable to study and work at. The other main point is safety one of the most important things maybe not seen by students but valued by teachers and parents. One of the major disasters going throughout the country are school shootings.
Thus, they have decided to extend their protest as not to attend their classes and protest against the prices but this can cause failing from their classes. Also, students of the University of California at Berkeley made a movement group called funeral for public education that is protesting against the tuition cost of the colleges. Since they are in one of the famous Universities, their strategy is simple because everyone can hear them if they protest. Just like the State Interest Group of Indiana University, they started to make protest.
