No!!!! Fidget spinners should not be allowed at school, one reason why spinners should not be allowed at school is because, students do not learn when they have fidget spinners, another reason why spinners should not be allowed in school is because,fidget spinners can injure student’s, last but not least, fidget spinners distract students during school. The first reason why fidget spinners should not be allowed in school was because,students do not learn when they have fidget spinners. The article states that “after a lengthy meeting with faculty, it became clear that spinners are impending both students’ ability to learn, and teachers’ ability to teach. Students’ that own fidget spinners want to bring them everywhere, but school is NO place for fidget spinners.
What this essay is saying about students and education is there is no student who doesn’t want to learn or what’s to get an education. Everybody is capable of learning, but the problem is sometimes the education are given by people who don’t care if you are learning or not. In this essay, we learned that the author was put in classes where the teachers didn’t care too much about their students and because of this he become a mediocre student. Not because he didn’t like school or he was lazy, but because there was no inspiration in learning. Luckily, Mike Rose the author of I Just Wanna Be Average found someone that wants him to start learning someone that make him change his mind.
In the end, students will learn more through technology because it provides a setting in which they are able to understand and relate to the information. Still, other critics of technology in school argue that technology hinders creativity and imagination (Source C). Without any organization, the abundance of information available could be overwhelming and therefore stifle creativity, however if children are expected to think and create their own thoughts and ideas, using the technological sources only as a supplement or means by which to increase efficiency, imagination will not be sacrificed. With the information age, comes the potential for new and useful methods of teaching. Yet in order to attain the most benefits from the new possibilities, teachers must still be willing to teach and therefore act as a
Farber believes that the grades create phony motivation and students only want to please the teachers. According to Farber, students only retain the material until they are graded on it. No longer having a grading system would leave students having no drive in school. Schools would no longer have a basic form of ranking the students and see how well they are doing. Students would no longer want to see the point in striving to be the best when everyone is ranked the same.
During discussions, teachers are often interested to hear students arguing about their own standpoints rather than the actual takeaways from the paper. Structure like this in classrooms only validates that students are able to argue but, diminishes the opportunities of creating values to the scholarly work and voicing out from the side that share the same opinion as the author. This leads to academic rewards for these arguing students as suggested by Deborah Tannen, leaving the rest to believe that they are not good enough for the academia. Based on personal experience, I would like to add that such agonism demotivates students to explore knowledge outside of their field and creates an impression that they are never meant to explore topics that they are least expert at. This structure has to be reshaped to bring back the original goals of criticizing work so that there is a value for everyone in the
But the important question now is, are the students really happy taking subjects? In my opinion taking subjects would be a necessity if it is controlled system; it helps students with their college future and lets them do what they like. The absence of control in “taking subjects” system decreases students’ chance of studying what they prefer. They have to study particular subjects according to state standards, which may preclude them from participating in extracurricular activities and participate learning they like. If the students don’t like what they are studying at school, they will do it just as a daily routine.
However, too many students are so self-focused that they cannot unlearn their selfish behaviors for the sake of finding the best-suited solution that can be achieved through collaborative thinking. In addition to Davidson, Jean Twenge also notices this pattern and she labels it as “narcissism”. As Twenge explains, “Because the school programs emphasize being ‘special’ rather than encouraging friendships, we may be training an army of little narcissists instead of raising kids’ self-esteem” (Twenge 504). Twenge obviously believes that school programs are trying too hard to preserve a child’s self-esteem instead of actually helping them to build skills that would help them. Twenge mentions that instead of making them feel “special”, schools should focus more on “encouraging friendships” so that they can be a little less narcissistic and self-focused.
He stated and gave many examples to try and prove his point through. In many ways I agree with him, students should do what they are interested in, but some may be lazy and not do anything which is why they might need that help that teachers provide. At the end of the day I think teachers do feel like they taught at least one person something new that day which might help them out with their future college path or occupations. But, at the same time I disagree because I think most should attend school not just for their grades and their parents, but also for themselves. Just knowing what is going on around you gets you feeling
For example from the article “School Uniforms- Pros and Cons” it says that there is less peer pressure to fit in when they’re not wearing the trendy brands and they’re all wearing the same thing. From the article “Pros and con” it states “Students always want to wear the “popular” brand of clothing and they talk about it too which gets them off topic” (Hertzler,1). By having school uniforms students will stay more focused on schoolwork instead of what the “popular trend” or brand is for that moment. Students like talking about in class what style or type of clothing they’re getting. Usually kids also compliment each others clothes which would get them off topic and not paying attention in class.
Teachers and fellow students will also provide help for students with disabilities; in this way, students with learning disabilities will be motivated to study as they feel that they are a part of a group instead of being isolated in special places. Thus, they will achieve higher grades. Moreover, they will be greatly engaged in the society as they are building bridges with their peers from several backgrounds. On the long run, teachers, parents, and the society as a whole would develop. Students with learning disabilities should be included in the “normal” classroom because it improves their academic performance, social behavior, and communication language.
