Imagine sitting in math class, and just not being able to pay attention. The teacher is talking about something that will be very important, yet focusing still seems utterly impossible. You feel hungry and longing for something interesting, but you aren’t allowed to have the one thing that can help your situation; a piece of gum. Unfortunately, many schools don’t allow chewing gum on school property. Focus decreases and grades become lower as a result of gum’s absence, and many students lack gum’s dental benefits.
Mostly everyone at one point in their lives has had to do some homework, and mostly everyone hates doing it. The debate is, are teachers in the United States giving students too much homework? Searches have shown that the amount of homework assigned does not affect academic performance. Also, people have found that students who have a lot of homework, tend to get overwhelmed and they won 't even attempt to do their work. Due to these two things and the pointlessness of doing homework, American students should receive less homework.
Many kids and parents think that we should have uniforms but they don't help anything just there looks. So here are some reasons I think that we should not wear uniforms. My first reason I think that we shouldn't have uniforms is because it makes kids very uncomfortable which makes it harder to listen. If they are so focused on getting comfortable that they don't listen it can bring down there grades. This can be very disruptive to a student or a teacher.
It hinders the teachers to be creative and the teaching materials being the same can get boring. The students become less interested in retaining the information. Teachers have such pressure to teach the test they tend to not teach beyond the test and students miss out on other types of material they could be learning.
The kids there was very disrespectful which made it hard for those who wanted to learn. I wouldn’t learn nothing even if I would show up which also was one of the reasons I didn’t feel the need to attend. I felt as if the teachers wasn’t doing their job as they should as far as teaching the students what it is they needed to know as well as enforce the rules and policies upon them.
I wanted to obtain the standardized test results, but it was difficult to obtain from my practicum teacher because she didn’t have access to them and when I finally went to ask in the office they told me they couldn’t provide me with standardized test results because the lady in charge of those results had relocated at another school and they didn’t have access to them. But from what I know is that three of the four students I am working with are female and one of them is a male. All of the four students are Hispanic and they are considered English Language Learners. The boy is reading below grade level, his reading instructional level is the primer level, and his frustration level is 1st grade. One of the other girls from my group of students, her instructional reading level is 2nd grade, and her frustration reading level is 3rd grade.
In “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Readers” by Kavitha Rao, she express her opinion on the topic that the current generation is not reading for fun. She mentions several experience she had with other people, that don 't see the benefit in reading for fun. She says that since people aren 't reading more leisure anymore they 're becoming less creative, inarticulate, have poor communication skills and low confidence, which is caused by parents forcing their kids to read, and the education system need to have students memorize textbooks and nothing else. After reading this article I find myself disagreeing with Rao on several points she made, I don’t believe the modern attitude towards reading is causing people to be self absorbed and unimaginative, she also claims that book clubs don 't encourage reading for fun, parents are forcing their children to read boring books which turned them away from reading and that the educational system is to blame for college students for being inarticulate. In the very first paragraph Rao mentions a the conversations she had with two different people, the first person say “I never read fiction” and “After what 's the point of a book if it doesn 't teach you anything.” Another person says “Fiction is not real, no?” and adds “I only like to read real stories to improve myself.” She states that many young people don 't see the benefit in read unless its to help improve themselves, or to ace a job interview.
Mrs. Keating, their English teacher, taught in a different way than the other Welton teachers. He did not follow the sameness and repetition that was always shown in the school. Many teachers did not agree with his teaching methods, because they did not want change. At this school, the four pillars are different aspects of the same conformist model of success. This model cannot work for
People argue that the quiet people are the ones that don't think. It leads to assumptions that quiet people don't have anything to say. The quietest ones are boring because they sit wondering off instead of talking to others. Quiet ones don’t get notice but they do notice the people who talk without thinking about what is being argued. Quiet people use silence as a way to express without talking so that the loud ones can learn from the mistakes when not thinking ahead.
Another issue with these tests is they do not measure knowledge or skills needed out in the real world which causes some teachers to not teach them. This lack of knowledge and skills are ruining students’ chances of being successful out of school since majority of them do not know the basic skills needed to function in
