In a graph made by the Bureau of Labor statistics it states the unemployment rate for people depending on how far they went with education. It states,” High school diploma 7.5%, Bachelor’s degree 4.0%, and Doctoral degree, 2.2%.” College graduates are less likely to not have a job, which means that they will have a sustainable income that allows them to be able to provide for their families. In addition, college graduates get paid more. In the article, “ Actually, College is Very Much Worth it” it states, “Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2010 the median weekly earnings for someone with some college but no degree were $712 compared to $1030 for a college graduate. That’s almost $17,000 over the course of a year.” There is nothing wrong with getting paid more money, if anything it makes life easier because you won’t have to worry as much when you have to pay your bills.
The evaluation was divided into two broad categories Scholastic that looked at the areas which were subject specific and Co-Scholastic that included activities that were co-curricular like life skills, attitudes and values. The Scholastic evaluations was divided into Summative assessment to help analyse how much the students have learned after teaching through various medium like multiple choice questions, long and short answers , match the following , fill in the blanks and understanding diagrams in science . and Formative assessment to evaluate the students everyday learning situations during teaching to help identify gaps to help provide feedback to teachers to take remedial action which was done through various tools like observation, document analysis ,peer reviews ,self-assessment ,tests and the various techniques used were like projects ,assignments , activities , making of posters ,charts ,collages ,group discussions and seminars whereas the life skills looked at enhancing the thinking, social and emotional skills . The summative assessment are to assess skills like teamwork ,leadership skills , memory and understanding along with
This study revealed The students performance which reflected by their examination score were higher in the flipped classroom than other methods, but students were less satisfied with the innovative teaching method than with either of other method. However, from 589 students who joined in this study, only 445 students were completing the questionnaire for satisfaction survey. The survey questionnaires were
According to Andrew J. Rotherham’s article “Actually, College Is Very Much Worth it.”he states, “Meanwhile, in 2010, the unemployment rate was 9.2 percent for those with only some college and more than 10 percent for those with just a high school degree, but it was 5.4 percent for college graduates.” The data Rotherham provides shows that even with some college education, you have a higher chance of getting employed than those with just a high school degree. The one group that outweighs all the others is the college graduates proving that with a college degree unemployment is less likely to befriend people who do pursue college. Some people might say that there are loads of jobs that do not require a college degree, especially in this time and age. However those jobs do not pay remotely has high as the jobs you can score with a college degree. In the article Benefits of Earning a College Degree written by EducationCorner they state “Because college gives you a broad range of skills, many college graduates end up in fields that are not what they studied in school.
The researchers from the study concluded that based on what they survey participants voted that, ‘when we analyzed this perception with beliefs about Latino inequality, the same relationship found for beliefs about African American inequality appeared also: These respondents tend to agree that Latinos do not work hard enough to improve their life circumstances”.15 What many white students attending those universities do not understand that it is not the fault of the minority student’s effort in college, but rather it is the environment the student grew up in. In dominantly Latino and Black communities there are not many resources for
The next study establishes how the first-generation college student’s experience is with less parental support than their peers. The researchers have made a hypothesis that these differences are found in areas relevant to college specifically rather than parental support overall, which can provide a distinction between type of support and differences and similarities in perception by first-generation status (Barry et al., 2014). Barry et al. (2014) had conducted research throughout four various universities and they received 1,539 valid responses, for a 24% total response rate. Of the 1539 respondents, virtually all (92%) were between 17 and 19 years-old (p. 4).
Their postsecondary attainment not only lags behind the attainment of white but also of black and Asian students (Adams 1). Moreover, the college completion rates of Latinos are considerably lower than those of most other ethnic groups: according to the U.S. Department of Education “in 2010, among Hispanic 25- to 29-year-olds, 14 percent had earned a bachelor's degree or higher, compared with 19 percent for African-Americans, 39 percent for whites, and 53 percent for Asian-Americans” (qtd. in Maxwell 2) (!). For all other minority groups, the percentage of college degree holders has increased significantly over the past decade, yet for Latinos it has not increased for more than two decades (Gándara, Contreras 10). The fact that Latinos are not only the fastest-growing ethnic minority but also “the most undereducated major population group in the country” (Gándara, Contreras 18) should illustrate once more how much Latino education matters to everyone.
I also realized that in college most classes give little to no homework and most of your grade is based on attendance, participation and tests. Long lectures were somewhat new to me but the vigorous note taking was what I fell short in. I took scarce notes that did not benefit me much when it came to studying for tests. I had classes that I were failing in the middle of the semester and being new to college I did not think to drop them. I ended up with 2 failing grades in my first year of college.
Non-monetary rewards (working in an environment conducive to learning, seeing positive results in student learning, or responding to parent pressure) can be motivating. School-based management may be implemented in conjunction with other reforms. It is not unusual to regard school-based management as only one of several strategies designed to improve student learning. Community control
STUDY SKILLS Study skills or study strategies are approaches applied to learning. They are generally critical to success in school/university, considered essential for acquiring good grades, and useful for learning throughout one’s life. “You will never know what you can really do until and unless you free yourself from the way you have always done it.” A person should study and continue studying so that he can learn new-new skills. Some students think that their IQ level is less than the other students. And it’s often taken for granted that academic success is the result of ‘being clever’ and that is something you are blessed with or not at birth.
