The proposition that ”if schools truly want students to be motivated to do well in school, then schools should be willing to pay students for their hard work,” contains logical fallacies. For example, “but why should students work (learn) for nothing” begs the question. Also these proponents assert the idea that students are doing job (learning) and should be paid for it does not follow or a non-sequitur fallacy. On the contrary, this proposed reward system will cause problems in the classroom. Rewarding students for good grades will decrease student’s self-motivation.
Well, one of the biggest advantages of the American school system is the great flexibility. Students are disciplined and they are willing to do their homework for hours. These attentions on the tests are really a big issue in the American education system, but by making the tests fewer importance students all over America will have the chance to succeed better in life no matter the social status the family might have. In addition, with so much focus on these tests and the preparation on the test schools are teaching the students how to do the tests rather than increasing their creativity. The United States has one traditional belief and value, which
Academic success to me is achieving good grades and understanding the material to get good grades. Academic success also means to have an good attendance. I already get mostly A’s and B’s, but I am not good at staying on top of things. To improve my academic success I will attend class more often, be more organized, pay attention in class, and not procrastinate. Attending class is important so I don't miss any assignments and get behind.
Usually, most kids spend about 6.5-7 hours of school from monday-friday, not only are students in school for many hours but for 5 days and homework just adds more hours at home. For are future athletes, most can’t practice or even do a sport because homework takes up most their day, causing students to lose the privilege of doing an outside activity. Though, many would say doing homework keeps the school mode of learning and prepared for the next day. The final reason why homework can be harmful is homework can even cause family issues or illness. Many would say “How can homework cause family issues?”, well there is one main reason.
These items were: size of class enrollment, course level, the "electivity" of the course, the particular subject matter of the course, and the time of day that the class was held. This article is a mass overview of all the research that has been done for relating class size and student achievement. This article states “Class size was often related to teacher and course evaluations, though not inevitably or necessarily very strongly so” (Feldman, 1984, p. 45). In this article, it is saying that class size does affect student achievement, but not much. This is important because if class size doesn’t affect student achievement much, then class size may not matter after all.
Cutting homework or senior year, will make the education process harder for most students who learn at a slower pace. The four articles we read in class gave us all different viewings to how and why it’s important for people to have in their life. In Frederick Douglas and Malcolm X, they wrote about how they didn’t get the same opportunities as other to get educated because they were a different race, however, both of them took the time to self educate themselves and were successful. Education and literacy have been the two most important parts of people 's lives. In today’s society, everyone gets the same opportunities as each other when it comes to
This will also have a major contribution to individuality, as many students take the same classes and usually don’t share similar interests in that class. Having diverse schedules would ultimately boost the amount of days students attend school because of classes they find interesting as well as specific to
There are numerous community colleges across the nation, and several undergraduates attend community colleges every year. With an enormous amount of undergraduates attending community colleges, society as a whole should want the colleges to be in the best conditions to educate our future members of society. However, most community colleges are failing to provide the best conditions possible for their students. Community colleges are failing to properly educate their students, and because education is a valuable aspect of the American society, community colleges should be refined to produce knowledgeable citizens of the United States of America. Community colleges require some students to take remedial classes due to low standardized test
Learning should already provide pleasure even without the offer of money, it should be an elysian . In the long run, students have lower than naturally motivated students. Schools shouldn’t be paying students for awesome grades because it leads to fights and arguments, students should only learn if they want to, and students have lower grades in the long run. To begin, schools shouldn’t pay students for worthy grades since it starts problems in the classroom. According to the Prairieecothrifter.com “ Should parents pay for good grades?,” “ NEA article claims: ‘ Many teachers also say paying students for excellent grades leads to practical problems in their
Nicholas Vidrine Prof. Smith English 1158 13 March 2018 Why Co-ed Schools are Better Co-ed schools can be more beneficial than single sexed schools because it can lead to the development and growth with the opposite sex. I have experience from both sides of this topic and I feel that having a co-ed school makes the groups or friendships throughout those years of school worth it. When a student goes into a co-ed environment, they experience a new outlook on life because there is some sort of new competition or thought outlook on their lives. Getting involved into a co-ed school has many benefits and they will help you greatly later in life. While I believe that having a co-ed school is more beneficial to the daily student’s life than going to a single sexed school, many others can say otherwise.
As a result, we moved some students into 6:1:2 programs, reducing the number of 4:1:2 classes. The student that needs the small class environment and high support is still placed in a 4:1:2 today, but we continue working to move students from the most to least restrictive environments. This movement not only allowed Questar III to better serve students, but also to better account for actual costs. As a result, many program rates decreased or remained the same this year due to a better accounting. Per board policy, reviews will use logic models, rubrics, and various research-based tools to analyze data collected and implementation review.
I know that outlining and main ideas of a lecture will help me when I will be review for a test. Taking break is key when writing a paper or anything. They longest that a college student we interviewed went without sleep was three days. Technology is a key for everything in college because without it you can not write any papers at all, laptops are the number thing that every college student will use. The way that I will have to talk to my teachers is saying hello and going to office hours where I can really focus about whatever I may need to
Imagine this: you 're a teacher at a very prestigious school, with an exceptional group of students. Your students try their hardest, but some subjects of the curriculum are more difficult than others. Most kids do well on the tests, with few slipping through the crack, and the only thought you have is, “how will this affect my paycheck?”Merit pay, according to google, is the raise in pay based on a set of criteria set by the employer.Merit pay is nothing but pernicious to not only the teacher, but the student and school as well. Pay for performance leads to no improvement in teaching by stripping teachers of their motivation to teach, and also leads to a narrower curriculum and ultimately more test prep and money. Additionally, it ultimately leads to corrupt incidences, like the situations in Atlanta, North Carolina and New York.
Some professors evidently feel the need to help these students, which they should but, not just pass the Sooleem students because they don’t speak English well. The pass-fail system will not allow for professors to be biases and will show if the student really put the effort in and earned the pass. The professors should also be there to clarify lectures and assignments. At Grassi Noll, the professor said they wouldn’t be able to help because of their scholarly pursuits, which is understandable, they have busy schedules and are bound by contracts that require scholarly pursuits but, they still have an obligation to help the students if they have questions about that professor’s class and provide assistants and resources to students. With that said, just because the students sit in silence and don’t understand English doesn’t mean they get to just give a passing grade that they did or didn’t earn.
I learned a lot in class and that’s the main thing I liked about class. In the class we would stay the full hour and fifteen minutes. There are good and bad things about it to me. My good things were I got to be able to learn more and was about to know what was due the next class time. While my bad things are that sometimes I would be late to a doctor appointment, activation, and therapy because I have to stay in class the whole hour then go change and drop my stuff off to go to my appointments.
