In this case, parody is being used to imitate testing. “Please put down your pencils and stare at the front of the room,” (The Simpsons) said the teacher in the episode when the kids were waiting for the security guards to come and collect the tests. This quote is spot on and important because teachers now a day are forced to teach by the institutions way of rules and whatnot. The subject is not only satirizing the teachers, but also the way teachers think about these tests. These tests used to not determine someone's future, but for every year that goes by, these standardized tests keep getting more difficult for the average student to take.
He spent two years of high school with teachers who smacked and paddled their students in a feeble effort to control them. The students he was surrounded by enjoyed partying, dealing drugs, and getting into fights. Rose didn’t fit in, but stayed enrolled in the vocational classes. One day in his religion class, his classmate Ken Harvey remarked “I just wanna be
One of Pope’s claims was that students don 't want to be competitive. In my opinion I think students want to be competitive. When we check our grades in class, I always see people comparing who has a higher grade. I have done that myself. Students are very competitive with grades and other activities too.

Throughout the book, he undergoes character development and grows a lotittle as a person. He is constantly thought of as a child and the suitors undermine him, but in the end, the suitors are proved wrong as Telemachus slaughters them. Although my memory was less violent, it still helped me grow as a person just like Telemachus did in the Odyssey. The girls in that class thought that I wouldn’t be able to handle the class and I had given them enough reason to because I was shy and nervous, but I changed their minds after correctly solving the problems and having more confidence in myself. Near the beginning of the book, Telemachus had gone to a king and needed to introduce himself.

Keating. Briefly, the movie shows the struggle of a new teacher who tries to inspire his students to live the life they want to and fails.

I constantly worried myself with what all of my friends and classmates were getting in comparison to what I would get, leading to an unhealthy thought of academic success as a competition. As a big math and science student, I would focus the majority of my time towards my biology and calculus courses in high school and then continue to take easy writing and English courses because I thought that if I took a hard writing course, it would hurt my GPA too much. Even though grades do provide the desirable incentive to perform better, they also cause the undesirable effect of restricting student learning. I kept limiting myself to what would keep me in the running with my friends versus letting myself to explore different subjects and disciplines, like creative writing or the humanities offered at my high
Practice makes perfect. This applies to everything in life such as sports like basketball and football, to activities like piano and skating. This age-old adage also applies to homework on how it helps students perform better in school. Recently, the use of homework has come under fire by various people, some even calling it an evil. The argument against homework is that it is unhelpful, leads to increased amounts stress in students, and inflicts negative effects on their academic ability and performance.
Group projects were a reoccurring difficulty in JD’s life. His mother and the speech pathologist made the entire school faculty aware of how damaging it can be to a child’s self-esteem to be left out of a group. I had never thought of this before. JD’s story made me aware that leaving students responsible for forming their own groups has the potential to do more harm than good. Moving forward, I will be more conscious about assigning partners for activities in my graduate and professional

Young Mexican teens attending Garfield High School in East Los Angeles have been faced with what seems to be an almost impossible task. Although everybody doubts them their teacher, Mr. Escolanta, has faith that they are ready for AP Calculus. They students thought that he was crazy, but he taught them about the ganas or the desire to do something with their lives and go to college. A place they never even thought of going. Mr. Escolanta (Kimo) had one more favor to ask the board of the school and that was for his students to take the AP exam.
Students with grit and without grit go about handling quite differently these tasks they need to accomplish. They quickly notice that college classes are much harder than the classes they took in high school, and they may not have done as well on the first assignment as they thought they had. What approach do each of them take next? A student with no grit is more likely to accept that the class is going to be hard and that his grade is going to suffer throughout the semester. He may even believe that he has put forth all of the effort that he could give and there is nothing else he could do to fix it.
When these students plagiarize others work they render themselves unable to truly understand the material. The purpose of going to school is to prepare students for life and give them the necessary knowledge they need to succeed. If you simply copy someone 's work, it eliminates the whole learning aspect because none of the work is your own doing. Along with that, you lose the potential knowledge and skills that could help you later in life. The punishment serves as a reminder of those facts and helps students come to realize that cheating hinders your education.
