Everyone says that it’s so hard, or so much work, but if you stay on task and pay attention in class it’s not that bad. I was one person to struggle in middle school grade wise, but since I was told that high school would be so much harder, I’ve paid a lot more attention in class and done all my work. Another thing I would tell the current eight graders, is that you don’t need friends to get through high school. It’s understandable if you want to have friends so you’re not lonely all the way through high school, but you don’t need them and its better if you don’t have them so it’s easier to pay attention in classes and get more work done
In high school and in college students tend to cheat because they feel that cheating is the only way to pass a class. Students feel the need to cheat because they are stressed out from the work the teachers are assigning them or they are going through personal problems at home. Cheating on tests and also homework assignments are a persistent problem with many high school and also college students. Technology has improved over the last years and that is one of the reasons why it is easier for students to cheat. Today, academic dishonesty is easier because some teachers do not consider it as cheating.
Many students need to have these classes because it may be their only motivation to stay in school. Teachers are told that they need to have differentiated learning, but that is hard to do when students need to constantly be drilling for math and reading passages. There is only so much differentiation that a teacher can do. With the standardizing of curriculum, the material has become less relevant and students need to be able to see how the material they are learning is going to benefit them in the long run. Kids who are living in poverty need more time, energy, love, and support than upper-class students, and the public school education system is not able to give them that.
According to researchers, ¨ At least 106 countries do not prohibit the use of corporal punishment in schools¨(2). 65% of schools report students being verbally or physically abused yearly. Being abused in school is bad but being abused anywhere is bad. But in school a lot of students feel like they cannot talk to anyone about the problem. In school, make sure students know they can talk to someone about what's going on in their everyday life.
Throughout my years as a junior high student I have witnessed many incidents where students have become overwhelmed with the amount of homework we receive within a weeks time. Of those students, many of them became so overwhelmed with the amount of work and decided to put off doing it. These students would then suffer the consequences of detention and receiving low grades, causing them to fail their classes. However, some people may disagree that the amount of homework students receive is perfectly fine and that it teaches kids a life lesson about dealing with a lot of things all at once. Contradicting that last statement, kids deserve to spend their childhood years being kids and shouldn’t have to be burdened down with constant homework after dealing with all the chaos school brings each day.
Our society has a hidden stereotype of a certain gender being unsuccessful at a certain academical subject; girls not being able to get good grades at math and science, and boys having no talent in art or music. However, single-sex schools can change the way people look at both genders. Most students are oppressed to show their preferences of the other-sex-dominant-subjects because of peer pressure. However, in single-sex schools, girls can work on male-dominant subjects such as math or science, and boys can work on music and art and show their full potential. During an experiment in Virginia in 1995, 100 eighth graders were separated just for math and science courses.
It is essential to success in life. The ability to read is highly valued and very important for social, economic and career advancement. The current Grade 7 students of ICBC Christian Academy has difficulty in Reading Comprehension. Most of them gave their reasoned to this such as, they don’t have a good foundation in reading, they want to read, no one likes to read at home, they like to do picture reading only. With this reasons, they got frustrated if the teachers will ask them to do some reaction papers.
Worrying teachers focus on standardized test rather than innovation and imagination. According to learning blog, many students are “going against the tide” while trying to express their creativity and they struggle to get decent grades. Sadly, sometimes budget cuts happen in schools and drop
Moreover, it is said by some of the teachers who are asked via twitter Question and Answers survey that they find it very hard to teach the special needs children especially ADHD. In these situations, it is the duty of the school to provide special teachers to help the special needs students because normal teachers does not have the requirements and the skills to teach them. Furthermore, another aspect they have said is that they have is the lack of the time because lets us all be honest majority of the time the teachers have their schedules full and because of these problems they cannot tend to the list of the things they are supposed to do. Moreover, when teaching students we often notice some of the students do not concentrate in the classes maybe because the way we are teaching is boring for them or we may have been teaching them nonstop without a break. So it’s our responsibility that we do lessons in such a way that students can be engaged to the lesson through various ways.
The “delienquents” were talked down to and punished while the “will be” were praised and helped. “Smart” classes were held in the morning while trade schoolers were away and ended when they came back. The two groups of people were kept on almost entirely different schedules, which meant the one class we had together only helped accentuate our so-called differences. Teachers thought my classmates were bullying me to get higher scores, they got
