The older generation will always complain about the younger generation and how they are ruining everything. Here we are just seeing another example of it play out.

It is too harsh to drop an assignment’s grade when a student misspells a few words! I also don’t support my mom’s opinion that we should go back to our old customs and handwrite our work in school instead of doing it on the computer. I understand that it would help with our spelling skills, but doing work on computers is much neater and faster. Spelling is always a salient skill to have, even in the age of technology, because it may sometimes come in handy. In conclusion, terrible spelling is becoming more and more common in
The amount of access children have to the Internet and devices leaves little to their imagination. The growing and changing modern culture of today is affecting children in a negative way potentially ruining their development. Pop culture, technology, and the media all contribute to the corruption of children growing up in today’s modern society.

The comments from my instructor, the online material, my research, the online writing center and comments from other students in the discussion boards have helped me so much to improve my writing skills. In the writing process, the step that I feel I have improved a lot is editing, as I am constantly reading my writings and editing them as I finish them, over and over again before I publish them. The steps in the writing process that I like the most are finding a topic in the Pre-writing step and Drafting. I like having a lot of ideas floating around and think about which idea is the best and the most exciting topic to talk about. Drafting for me is pretty similar, as also my ideas are coming into my mind at no speed limit and I try to focus in one at the time, at that moment, I am not thinking about

Memorizing more and more information creates new neural pathways and assists in neural plasticity. However, memorization can be an obstacle in the classroom. A student does not understand a concept only because she memorized it, and too often memorization leads to forgetting. Benjamin Bloom revolutionized education with his taxonomy at which knowledge or remembering is the lowest level because students can passively remember ideas. Educators attempt to scaffold students onto the taxonomy’s higher levels like application and evaluation, so many shy away from explicit memorization, but it can be useful in the classroom.
I prefer to sign with my classmates, but when they talk to me speaking is faster for me to respond rather than writing my response or signing it. It is difficult to stop because English was my first language and I am so used to using it in every other class. Breaking the habit of talking is possible, but it is a challenge because I am not as used to signing as I am speaking. By choosing to sign more instead of talking you show improvement in ASL because you can naturally and instinctively respond to others in ASL

This increased lack of contact between students result in older children “excluding other kids” on the playground and not being able to “read the signals of other students”, tendencies, both of which are generally attributed to younger students. Secondly, Turkle addresses the negative aspects of phone use when people are by themselves denouncing the optimistic idea that it’s “our new form of being together”. Turkle suggests that in solitude we learn how to “concentrate and imagine, to listen to ourselves”, important aspects of a person’s self they need to be fully present in a conversation. She pushes the idea that a “start toward reclaiming conversation is to reclaim solitude” and that the human race needs to think of “unitasking as the next big

“Texting isn’t ruining young ppls grammar” by Nenagh Kemp discusses the idea that texting is not ruining people grammar, even though many people tend to spend more time texting than communicating face to face.

Textbooks are formidable, and students are expected to respond to text with formal criticism or outlining rather than personal reactions. Middle school often shows an increase teacher control and a curtailment of student freedom, as compared to elementary school. Finally, students are too often removed from the social support of teachers and are expected to compete rather than cooperate with each other in reading. To provide support for engaged reading,

As Mr. Hartle (Interview 2016) states, “students are better able to understand concepts, but it is time-consuming and they do not have the same level of understanding.” We can conclude from this that students are receiving a worse education. If a building does not have a good foundation, it will fall; education is the same way. Someone must understand the basics which common core takes away
