This is important because it shows that the homework can be the cause of the end of one’s education. This also important because then teachers can see why some students just do not try anymore. In addition, one can see this when “They refuse to do homework and it’s lowering their grades” (LAXdoubleK). This shows that students do not even care about their grades because the homework is too much. If students already don't do the work or get that education that they should be going to school for they might just drop out, there's no point to being there in the first place.
In the essay, “Helping First Year Students Help Themselves”, by Christine Whelan she explains how many college students today need extra help in order to feel like they can succeed in college. She goes on to explain that many of her first year students in college often felt like they had been, “baited and switched.” What she meant by this is that many of the students she teaches feel like they had been lied to by their parents or high school teachers and that they expected college to be easier than it really was. Whelan also felt that many of the college students were not taught earlier in life how to deal with difficult times or issues that occur in life. To help her students combat the difficulties of life Whelan feels that teachers, and staff of schools should help their students by giving them, “empowering exercises” such as them tracking how much money they spend on food and how much time they waste by watching television instead of doing their work. Whelan believes by giving out
In the article “Excessive Homework Strains Family Life”, the author starts by writing about what students are missing out on due to homework; one topic she mentioned was exercise: “Kids who don 't have time for play and recreational activities, such as softball teams or dance, just don 't get to move around a lot—and there is evidence that exercise actually helps with academics” (Ponte n.pg.). Homework takes an exponential toll on students, which causes some to forfeit their sports in order to finish their assignments on time. In addition to losing the time for physical activity, being on sports teams allows children to learn social skills and meet new people. Instead, they are spending time by themselves completing their interminable homework assignments. Furthermore, in the article “Parents Should Take Action Against Excessive Homework”, Nancy Kalish continues writing about the inadequate amount of physical activity had by students and states that too much homework causes kids to miss out on playtime which is necessary for preventing childhood obesity (Kalish n.pg.).
This is one of the causes of why each student isolated to a specified stereotype. Moreover, the students feared that their friendships would not continue after the Saturday detention because they thought that the dissimilarities of their social groups were enough to keep them separate. Idealism also played a big role in the theme of the movie. Each student struggled with a necessity of being perfect in his or her parent and friend’s judgment. They lose their self-confidence if they sense that they have not attained this perfection, no matter if it is athletic, academic, or social.
However, when one doesn’t even know what to change from, it’s hard to move forward. The residential schools were incredibly destructive to their culture and even though the author doesn’t make this the focus of the novel it explains why Otter Lake is the way it is. Their lack of culture has led to a disconnect with the land, shown in the eagerness to build on it and how it’s seen as an administrative task rather than something of cultural significance. The lack of culture has also changed their relationship with each other. Virgil and many other kids are often left to raise themselves while their parents focus on their jobs.
Most teachers leave schools because of the way they are treated by their students. What the students do not understand is that teachers are there to help them be successful in life. When students refuse to cooperate, it builds more stress on the teacher; the more stressed out a teacher is, the harder it is for them to prepare students for
It could mean the difference between having a low self of esteem and confidence and being able to manage anything the world might throw at them. During my eleven-and-a-half years in school, I have heard classmates and friends say that they dislike school and how some of the lessons taught is not going to help them life; they had an uncaring attitude. I always had a hard time understanding why they would say, why did not care, or want to take advantage of the education they are receiving. I do not want the students in my community to have the same mindset as my friends and classmates. Instead, my desire for them is to be grateful and thankful for their learning, to develop a mindset of appreciation for their
I started to analyze what my options were and dropping out of school is probably one of the easiest options when you are overwhelmed by confusion. I was no longer interested in educating myself. I felt guilt, fear and ashamed because of the bad choices I made towards my education. Perhaps this feeling is probably what many students feel when English is not their primary language, I never prioritized my education. On multiple occasions, I found myself
As college students prepare for a job hiring, sometimes the student doesn’t meet the job standards or the job just doesn’t suit the student, so therefore they’re not motivated to prepare for a career. If the student is preparing for a high position in jobs, then it gives superior benefits (The Value of Education). Some offered jobs hold high
In conclusion, social promotion ultimately hurts students far more than it helps. Social promotion creates perpetual cycles of unpreparedness for students as they continue to fall behind in classes. The better solution for struggling students is extra help and counseling. If a student struggles in a particular subject to the point of failure, they should be given extra help and more broken down explanations of the concepts. Students should not be passed into harder classes when they couldn’t manage the previous
