Rough Draft Why do schools force students to learn topics that they don 't want to learn? Students should be allowed to choose the topics that they want to learn and not the topics the school wants them to learn. Students would be more attentive and creative if they were able to choose their own classes because they would feel more responsible since they choose their own class. Multiple students are punished for being bad at a class like being grounded or getting a detention. Instead of being punished if students where to pick their own classes they could focus more on the class that they already like and are good at and then continue to advance in that class rather than being held back by a class that they don 't understand.
Since it’s a highly known topic in the lower class studying it will help them have interest on school because it is something that they are really passionate about and very familiar with. By them going to college doing something they love, this will reduce the number of potential people that could be involved in violent or criminal activities. So De la Rosa views this as a potential outlet for low income families not as a road block. So both authors believe that Hip hop has influence on culture but the views on those influence is different for both authors. In conclusion
It help get rid of bullying acts in schools based on what the students are wearing. Uniforms eliminate the separation of social classes and spread a sense of equality among students. Moreover, uniforms make schools look more formal and professional and make the students feel proud of their schools. Studies show that students learn better and act more responsibly when they wear uniforms. High schools should require uniforms in order to benefit both the students and society as a
President Casey and DePauw have provided many services and actions to create a racially friendly campus. Some of these include the hiring of more diverse professors, cancelling a day of classes to discuss the racial issues, and requiring first year students to take a multi cultural or diversity class. Many students, including myself, believe that these actions have resulted in positive outcomes. While the school has fulfilled many efforts to prevent race issues on campus they must keep in mind that, “The dominant student [climate] may reflect or refute the central ideals of the institution as a whole. Thus, it is another powerful influence on an institution’s [climate].” (Kuh 1998: 25).
If credit card companies were to have financial classes there would be a higher chance of students applying for cards. It would help the students to get a feel of how everything works and give them confidence in their selves to make that step in life. Not building your credit or having bad credit will not only affect getting a home, it can also affect your job and lifestyle, as well ruin your
In today’s education system, there is an ongoing debate concerning conformity and individuality. The majority of schools conform to similar curriculum as a means of ‘leveling the academic playing field’ and giving all students a fair and equal chance of success. But does this sense of conformity actually benefit students? While it is necessary to have some conformity in the curriculum taught to students nationwide, there should be an aspect of individuality as well. Schools should adopt a more individualistic approach towards the classes students must take, and less of one concerned solely on test performance, because it would benefit students upon graduation by allowing them to pursue studies that interest them, and also benefit the school
For example, when I look back at his summary and see, "In total, although Hoover and FDR were presidents during the same time period, FDR did more to help," I can’t help but think that this student is trying to find an easy way out of using those critical thinking skills. For future assessments I will provide Focus Student 1 with more guidance as to things that should be expanded on. Other students in the class also need this guidance. I also would like to pair Focus Student 1 with individuals who are more on his academic leave. This way she can be more comfortable and better collaborate with his fellow
For example,“The villagers wonder less about the texture of my hair than they did then, and wonder rather more about me.” This excerpt from the essay showed how the villagers started to have an open mind for James and stopped looking upon him as a complete stranger. This opened mindedness displays the racial progress that was made by the native people and this could lead to less ignorance for the unknown in the future. This same progression happened in my school because I watched how my school turned a minority population into the majority. This growth represents how people change their mindset in order to keep up with the advancements in the world. Even though Baldwin did not have this luxury, I finally felt less set apart from the group and more a part of the community as a whole.
These negative experiences in educational institutes trigger a desire in Muslim students want to engage in homogenized friendships in order to be more comfortable and avoid discrimination by non-Muslim friends. According to Asmar, homogenized friendships protect Muslim students from the influence of perceived discrimination (as cited in Shammas, 2009, p.288). That is, when they only have Muslim friends, they are less likely to feel the pressure of being different and they don’t pay additional effort to explain themselves accurately. Moreover, Muslim students feel more protected from discrimination and comfortable in single faith friendships. Therefore, Shammas (2009) states that among Arab and Muslim students, the percentage of homogenized
I agreed with what the other classmates were saying during this discussion because the University does need to give the students guidelines on how to bring change to campus, but the students need to be the ones to push for the changes. As students, we know what needs to be changed on this campus. The faculty only sees one side of the University, and that is learning aspect. I believe that the faculty should be more diverse with sexual orientation, race, gender, and ages. This would help with students who learn better with the same sexual orientation, race, gender, and age, and it would give them an even path for success.
The Supreme Court emphasized the learning benefits from a diverse student body. This ruling was also a win for people that are against racial preference. The ruling said, “Courts must consider whether such preferences are narrowly tailored to achieving their educational goals
This study primarily focuses on the need for school leaders to adopt greater racial awareness through the use of composing racial autobiographies. Gooden and O’Doherty present this as a pedagogical tool in shifting away from racial unconsciousness and colour blindness. The findings from this study outlines participants own disregard to race prior to composing their racial autobiographies. It also further indicates that self-reflection; and being conscious of how our beliefs and perceptions of others with regards to race can shape decision-making, which is imperative for leaders who seek cultural responsiveness. This does however have its limitations, as it seems to develop awareness more so rather than a direct practical application,
Another step is to have a list of resources nearby to provide support for the student. A club or community center could help the student better assimilate and cope with the change differently than I can better they could better understand the student’s feelings. Also, an important step is to have an open mind and self-awareness. No one is perfect and mistakes are likely to happen; therefore, both parties needs to have an open mind and understand that I could take time to find the “happy medium” of the cultures. Also, understanding the bias and racial issues that could exist in the school is important because it helps put the student’s cultural issues with context (Arrendonado, 2001).
Why Common Core Standards Should Be More Common Why would students not want to be on a level playing field in their education? Why would they not want to be able to move seamlessly between states? These opportunities are given to students by Common Core. Although many opponents may say that these standards are a barrier of creativity, the Common Core Standards being accepted in all fifty states would help America, because it would have teachers across state borders instructing similar lesson plans, it would decrease the achievement gap, and it would better prepare students for college and the workforce by teaching them the needed materials for their futures. The Common Core being accepted in all fifty states would be helpful, because all schools would be teaching similar lesson plans.
Downgrading dishonest academic integrity in school environments will allow students to understand the importance of an honor code. It is embarrassing to be caught cheating by peers knowing that the honor code is enforced. Developing a community that takes an honor code seriously will decrease the amount of cheating. At my high school, certain teachers will remind students of academic integrity, however, there is not a community for it. Even without an honor code at my high school, students should be remind constantly about academic integrity.
