Many people believe that The Pigman should not be taught in schools because it contains bad role models and inappropriate content not suitable for young teenagers. They claim that John and Lorraine are poor role models because they made a bad choice and lied to Mr. Pignati in order to get money from him. Although they did lie to him at first, John and Lorraine eventually tell Mr. Pignati the truth about who they really were. They both realized that they had made a mistake that they needed to fix. Students will learn to do the right thing even if they do not feel like they should.
Article Analysis: The Importance of Writing Badly Bruce Ballenger’s article titled “The Importance of Writing Badly” takes a rather peculiar approach to addressing the issue of effective writing. The author eccentrically argues for the importance of ‘bad writing’ by describing different reasons to support his arguments. He argues that it is normal to apportion blames without understanding the root causes of poor writing skills. The author quotes different people who have expressed concerns about poor writing among students including his doctor. He proceeds by explaining why he would encourage his students not to concentrate on their poor writing experiences.
This text brought out a protective nature in me as I desperately want to give advice to settle the heart and mind of this character. The line, “That slowly I’d become someone, my heart no longer knew” makes me imagine a person so small and fragile. I wanted to pose as the older sister that could protect the innocence and pure heart of this character. I felt so disheartened reading the first part of the poem because it made me think of alike individuals that are fearful of letting go of things that are making them miserable. I found this text ‘Holding on and letting go’ a life-changing, inspirational poem.
This is evident when Miss Caroline looked at Scout “with more than faint distaste.” after she reveals to Miss Caroline her capability to read and write. The noun phrase, faint distaste, shows that Miss Caroline is pull out by Scout’s knowledge, as she preserve that grade one students were not suppose to know how to read and write. From what she expected, we can deduce that Miss Caroline’s teaching method is impersonal, and does not suit the needs of the students in Maycomb’s society. With her incapability to differentiate for different abilities, Scout will not be challenged academically and learning is lost. Lee reinforces the failure of Maycomb’s education system once again through students in grade one, who were not expected to contribute and participate during class.
Children slowly realized that there were no consequences to their actions, causing them to have outbursts of negative behavior and bullying (Lewis). Similar to the study, cyberbullying leaves children with the understanding that they will not be punished for their actions on the internet. Many children use fake names and identities to bully others without getting in trouble. Because of the anonymity of the web, there are not obvious consequences to bullying someone over the internet. Also, this type
Although school suspensions can be useful whenever a student misbehaves, the punishment can sometimes not even affect the student behavior against other students, limit students from learning new curriculum and passing their grade, and could possibly affect their career life. The reasons that suspension can affect these things is because whenever a student goes home because of being suspended they don’t actually think about what they’ve done, including the fact that the student doesn’t want to go to school in the first place. Suspension can affect the behavior the student has against another student because they may have caused them to commit the “crime”. Most kids who get suspended “joke around” talking about guns and shooting up the school, but the community doesn’t think this is safe because it’s causing more parents to worry about their child being at school when there could be a possible threat to shoot up a school. Most firemen and policemen are sending out special messages to parents to show their
In conclusion the real affects of why students do bad in school isn 't because they don 't feel like doing there homework or because they think its too hard or it 'll take forever or that there teacher is just straight up mean but that some people have no choice . Which doesn 't allow them to do good in school or just to escape were crazy families and i don 't just say this just to say this but thats the truth behind the ugly doors in the world that there are bad people that don 't allow our youth to become what they need to become to insure our future. So i just wonder whats doing on in the minds of the parents who think that they don 't need to go to school and lets treat our kids the way we want to treat them and lets use them for our own benefits and not insure our great nations next coming generation. so now i leave this question unto you whats the real reason that
The result is lower grades because they were not paying attention and they learned nothing. In conclusion technology can distract students and distract everyone. In addition classrooms should not have technology because it can lead to worse grades, worse quality made note taking. Education World wrote, “Students Who Hand Write Notes, Do Better Than Students Who Type Them, and Students Who Use Technology
Shelley indicates that his teachers also deserve a cut of the blame, as they quickly disregard the principle that highlights responsible mentoring. They were meant to help “educate, mentor, and advise students” (Resnik) such as Victor, but clearly failed to do so. They dismiss his interest in alchemy without explaining why such a study is dangerous or harmful, not only to individuals, but to the whole of the community. At the school, M. Krempe dismisses alchemists as “nonsense” while M. Waldman tells Victor that these studies “promised impossibilities and preformed nothing” (Shelley). Never once did they discuss the dangers, they just spoke of their dislike for the field, and how they found it to be worthless and unhelpful in relation to their studies.
In ‘Nettles’, the father is portrayed as very caring, attempting multiple times to protect his child. Scannell uses the poem to show that it is better for a parent to accept the fact that they cannot always protect their children rather than act thoughtlessly. ‘My son would often feel sharp wounds again’. Here the narrator accepts defeat after realising he is in a war he cannot win due to his lack of power. Equally, Chinua Achebe conveys a similar message in ‘Mother in a Refugee Camp’.
