Kids are lacking the drive to do well in school and get good grades in their classes. A recent experiment in Washington D.C showed that kids with serious behavioral problems made significant improvements when offered money for good grades and performance (Turque 1). A kid won’t change his or her entire attitude on school just because his parents gave him a lecture on how important school and good grades are. Money may be a tool parents and educators should consider to motivate students with behavioral
Another piece of evidence from the article, “Support for Sleeping in? Half of Parents Favor Later School Start Times for Teen”, by Mental Health Weekly Digest, it states, “The AAP recommends that adolescents receive 8.5 - 9.5 hours of sleep each night… Lack of sleep has been linked to mental health problems, increased risk of motor vehicle accidents and a decline in school performance.” This piece of evidence supports the fact that later times increase school performance because it is telling the reader that of Teens have lack of sleep then that can decrease
Her tone of voice, choice of words, and rhetorical questions moves people into thinking that the child labor laws are ridiculous and urges them to take action. The examples and words she uses was to show what goes behind the factory doors and what the country has turned to depend on. A nation is suppose to treasure and support the children in their education because they will become possible future leaders and live here. If a country depends on the work of children to support the production of goods, the future generation won’t be as educated as they should’ve been. She’s almost speaking the minds of the listeners through her rhetorical questions and answers them with what they should do if they don’t want this to continue.
In the article, “Brainology: Transforming Students Motivation to Learn” by Carol S. Dweck, she explains the different mindsets, which are, fixed and growth. According to Dweck, a student with a fixed mindset believes that they can only learn so much. A student with a growth mindset believes that intelligence is achieved through determination and hardwork. The way parents are praising their children is really affecting their confidence in academics. The mindset I am is fixed because when I get stuck on something I tend to give up easier than people with a growth mindset.
ndividuality vs. Conformity: The Healthy Middle The biographical essay ¨ Individuality vs. Conformity: The Healthy Middle¨ explains how high school students want to fit in and be different from others such as being independent.

The author's purpose is to persuade us to find a healthy middle to live a better life. The author writes in an emotional style for juveniles and others interested in the topic of conformity and individuality.
“Well-intentioned parents who want their children to be successful in school can place so much pressure on the kids that they resort to cheating” (American federation of teachers). To improve this, teachers and parents need to be mindful of how their students feel and need to not push them as much. You could see why people might think cheating is okay and vital to succeed, that doesn’t change the fact that it’s wrong and that you should talk to your teachers about how you
Now, before you tell me that school is different. It isn’t. If we can teach our young-athletes that participating is enough to be rewarded, can we not expect the same inside the classroom, or later down the line in the workplace? If your child receives the lowest possible mark on a test, would you want them to be rewarded with stickers on the sheet? I can’t speak for every parent, but I am sure the majority would want their kids to smarten up and work harder at the task.
This movement has become very popular with both parents and students. The idea is that if everybody continues to opt out from test eventually schools will realize that testing is not working and they will change the ‘norm’ of education. However, the only issue is that they do not provide a good alternative method, their main objective is to raise awareness on how stressful test situations are not the answer. They are on the right track but you can’t just wipe out testing and expect students to magically do better. The solution I am proposing is a whole new school system.
Authoritative parenting is a kind of psychological and behavioral control from parents to their children in order to exploit the harsh teaching method for boosting their children abilities (Gray & Steinberg, 1999:) The children’s growth are complex and this essay will mainly focus on children discipline, ability and the relationship between children and parents. Introduction It is understandable that Asian parents desire to educate the better children and believe a Chinese idiom says ‘spare the rod, spoil the children’. Therefore, some of them may exploit the authoritative parenting to force their children to get the better achievement; yet, there is a heated debate that whether strict parenting can be the best way to teach the developing children.
School uniforms pro or con , this controversial subject has been going on for a while arguing it takes away students self of expression or whether it helps establish a better learning environment. Which one truly is the best option for the future of our students and which one can truly maximize their potential for a better learning environment as well as the safety for them when they go to school, these thoughts are key points in when discussing the argument over school uniforms Starting with the pro side, school uniforms themselves have many upsides to them such as eliminating visible economical differences, which can be very helpful to diminishing bullying that is caused by a person's social/economical status, another upside would include
To avoid the roadblocks is to do the right thing and make the better choice. My parents dream include getting good grades while making the good decisions. One quote by an unknown person said “ Move out of your comfort zone you can only grow if you are willing to feel awkward and uncomfortable when u try sometimes”. As my parents dream of getting good grades, they also want me to learn new things. To be successful is going to be hard and challenging step with hard work.
We should learn what we need for our future rather than plays from the fifteenth century and greek mythology. Educators should feel more pressure as more students drop out or stick to minimum wage jobs due to lack of basic understanding which should have taught to them in their earlier education. As previously mentioned the educators do a amazing job but are told to teach the wrong subjects.”There is no profession more essential than that of an educator. and it 's time for all of us to embrace and celebrate their importance and contribution to America’s children”- Queen Latifah. There is no doubt that Shakespeare teaches students but is more or less should be
Teachers are giving students easy work to make them feel proud of their grade. Easy work isn’t going to change the student 's mindset. This will just make it harder for the student to learn new things, difficult things, as in this case they would want to give up and not try. Dweck also states, “Kids need to be given hard problems, instead of being rewarded for easy problems” (22). Difficult work is what needs to be given to students to help them learn and the process of making mistakes.
Educational Self-Analysis As students the people who we surround ourselves with have a profound effect with our motivational level. Our surroundings can emotionally impact our life for the better or worse. By reading the article “Brainology” by Carol Dweck has also showed me the mindset I have and reflect on the way I view education. like most Parents, my Parents want to see me succeed in school since they did not have the chance to do so themselves. Like everyone, I have weaknesses thats make me fall but, I also have strengths that help me get right back up.
They made efforts and suffered a hard time to build a bright future for their children. Therefore, what first-generationers should do is not avoiding the question and estranging their parents, but finding the problems and figuring it out. • Thesis: In this paper, I will focus in analyzing the relationship between immigrant parents and their first-generationers children and discussing how first-generationers identify their complicated identity clearly. • Preview paper: At first, I will describe what I observe in the video and explain the reason why these situations will happen. Absolutely, I will combine the
