When the overall perception of children shifted, the discipline matters moved as well. For example, Sir George Savile, who was a writer gave advice on how to properly raise and teach children. In Doc 3C, he says “you must begin early to make your children love you so that they will obey you...let them be more in awe of your kindness than of your power.” People began to follow similar advice presented by Sir George Savile because people realized that “degrading can produce no good effect” (Doc 5C). Doc 4C and Doc 5C come from the 18th century time frame, and both documents state that children are seen as treated well. During the 18th century, children were no longer physically or verbally abused.
Unfortunately, a lot of people didn't see it as that because the use of the G-word was the most popular reason when you heard why the book was being banned. Now, in my opinion, I would think that it would come from a lot of Christian schools due to not being able to use the G-word since its against the ten commandments but it should ultimately be up to the parents cause if they don't want their kid reading it then they should be able to pick another book that the school has choosing as an alternate book to make everyone happy. In 2016 a school attempted to make of mice of men only available for small groups that had their parents permission in 9th-grade English classes in Coeur d'Alene Idaho. The way they use profanity and how they use the word god is something some people saw unacceptable. They also found that since it was set during the great depression that is was too negative of a book.
I had to persevere in high school because school is hard because I have learning disabilities. I have ADD which causes a few problems. For one thing, it makes comprehension and doing work slower because I lose focus and have to come back into focus. Another thing is it makes it hard for me to sit still without being quite fidgety. I was that kid at story time that the teacher had to give a ball of wax to, so that I could fidget in order to sit quietly and listen to the story.
Though I believe that books contain important topics that can spark discussions of values in classrooms, I agree with Prose that teachers shouldn’t use books as a way to explicitly teach students outside values. I believe that in doing this, teachers are distracting students from the writing’s content and structure. Teachers should teach literature for what it is, not for what values they can loosely connect to it. When I was a freshman in high school, we read The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger. The book centered around a mentally unstable, socially isolated teen named Holden Caulfield.
Direct definitions is “communication that tells us explicitly who we are by directly labeling us and our behaviors” (Wood, Interpersonal Communication: Everyday Encounters). In highschool I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to study, but I knew I wanted to do something in the health science field which can be academically challenging so I wasn’t sure if I think I could handle it. Person X would always tell me how smart I am and that I can do anything I set my mind to. By this person using direction definitions to communicate to me really inspired me to attend MCPHS University, because it is so focused on health sciences. Another time direct definitions has affected me is when I was younger, Person A use to always make fun of me and say I was slow, because I would always take my time doing things and making sure everything is right.
First, getting good grades is essential to getting the future that many people strive for. Starting to really care for a good grade at a young age matters. But what some school boards don 't notice it that individual grades are going down. Sure many schools have the smart honor roll kids, but behind that are a bunch of D’s and F’s students. “The importance of physical fitness in the development of cognitive and memory skills have long been extolled by scientists.
In the beginning of Purple Hibiscus, Kambili was very quiet and secretive. Then she starts to come out of her shell and began to express her opinions more. But at the end of the book, Kambili shows desperation for Father Amadi and shockness from the events that took place. Through Purple Hibiscus, Adichie teaches the world having the right people who support will help you change for the better and overcome obstacles. This is relevant in today’s society because most kids don’t have the right influence in their household so they need the extra help from others to lead them the way.
"Do School's Kill Creativity" "My contention is all kids have tremendous talents. And we squander them, pretty ruthlessly" (Robinson, 02:57). Ken Robinson addresses the thought that creativity is just as important as literacy is in our schools and education. In his TEDtalk, the speaker Ken Robinson different ways in which we could change the way literacy is seen as more important than creativity and then make them equal. Robinson uses lots of different examples and stories to help convince his audience and help them understand the issues at hand.
Reading was my only solace from the realities of struggling in school and not having many friends. When my reading addiction persisted into high school, I started to realize the severity of my actions, and how failure in high school was not an option. I took it upon myself to give up this obsession. Of course, I never expected my withdrawal to be easy, but I understood that the rewards would be worth it. Initially, I was always cranky because books were all I could think about.
It may seem difficult to decide whether school sports is a good or bad. At first glance, it seems there are pros and cons, but I assure you, only one decision can be made. I know that school sports are bad. First of all, sports take too much of the spotlight. As a kid, parents highly promote education to children, making them have good grades as their goal.
