A study conducted by a Stanford researcher showed that when students are given too much homework it can become counter productive to what the students learn in school. (Parker “Stanford Research Shows Pitfalls of Homework”). This is important because if homework is becoming counterproductive, it is likely to make students dislike school and homework, which can make kids avoid and forget about doing it which leads to detentions and so on. Another way homework is not benefiting students is that it 's not teaching them anything new but making them repeat what they learned in class, and while kids need to know what they are doing and practice some student don 't need that practice and are forced to repeat what they know so they don 't get terrible grades. One way to change that used by a teacher in San Francisco what she has done is give a worksheet and if a student gets 90% or higher they do not receive homework that night unless the student would like to take the homework for extra practice that night and both ways it is automatically counted as an A.
Do you think the person should be disciplined for not studying, even though the grade earned was good? What would be the lesson in that? The best way I know to help people develop positive self-discipline is to first have a caring, respectful relationship with him or her. When people know you care about their well-being, then they aren't afraid and their soul (and cells) can be open for growth. Then teach the child to choose behavior that is in line with their goals and the person he or she wants to be.
Teachers have the power to determine whether their classroom will be a caring atmosphere or an authoritarian environment for the students. Teachers need to curb their ego and model empathy, positive attitude, and leadership skills. She believes that if teachers use positive attitudes when dealing with difficult students, the students will respect the teacher more; therefore, the students will have better behaviors. Showing empathy toward the students will result in the student feeling like someone understands them. Creating relationships with students helps them feel safe in their environment and comfortable talking to the teacher.
On the other end of the spectrum are students who simply do not have the willpower or drive to earn high marks in school. There are students who focus who too much on grades, and by doing this end up memorizing the material being taught and not absorbing. They are like little robots spouting facts and information, but not being able to truly comprehend its meaning. In The
Therefore, schools should get rid of sports, for academic reasons, for instance kids who play sports but also has good grades can have difficulty doing homework after practice. Other reasons is that kids who have bad grades are the ones who don't succeed in having a good job. Countless number of kids grow up to be a person who has a better profession than any other of their classmates from there good achievements and also there grades from all there hard
During school many students tend to stop paying attention to the lesson being taught. Their minds start to wonder and they don’t take in all of the information that is being taught. When told to ask questions if they don’t understand, they don’t ask questions. Homework gives students the opportunity to get the information a second time to reinforce what they heard, and if they didn’t get it or weren’t paying attention the first time, to take it at their own pace and make sure
There are multiple things that could keep students from excelling in school. According to ‘Pros vs. Cons of Extended School Days’, “Before deciding to extend the school day, consider changes that can be incorporated to solve the specific issues the school is facing.” Extending school hours is the easy way to approach the issue, but it isn’t that simple. One cause of low test scores is the misuse of time in class. There are many students who have trouble with time management. They often struggle to finish their work on time because they’re engaged in conversations or things other than their assignment.
If positivity is absent during math, students will begin to doubt and devalue their math skills. These positive messages can then override whatever they have heard in the past. Unfortunately, math is different than other subjects, it “…is taught in ways that are not used by other subject teachers, and people hold beliefs about mathematics that they do not hold about other subjects” (Boaler 21). Alongside the negative messages of math comes the crippling exams and tests that come along with math students seem to have high anxieties about. Math is tested more frequently than any other subject in the U.S. (Boaler 21), which can be exhausting and debilitating.
Schools will usually set up special days maybe even weeks to take these tests. The tests are meant to measure the intelligence of students, to show how well the teachers are doing, and to see if the school’s program is working. Standardized tests should be eliminated because students are stressed, it is not a true measure of a student’s intelligence, and students aren’t learning
(Gandy). Although she makes the point that standardized testing does show results for areas of improvement, she does not acknowledge why these tests are controversial, and why some students already start at a disadvantage. People forget that teachers and administrators work for students; this means young children. Students, especially young children, must aim to be strong readers in order to survive in society. Everyday people are mislead and taken advantage of because of poor literacy skills.
Many students are unable to understand basic math with the change in standards. As Mr. Hartle (Interview 2016) states, “students are better able to understand concepts, but it is time-consuming and they do not have the same level of understanding.” We can conclude from this that students are receiving a worse education. If a building does not have a good foundation, it will fall; education is the same way. Someone must understand the basics which common core takes away
