Some do not take their classes seriously, and they have a mindset that they are just there because they have to be there. (I do not know how to explain that better). But I think it’s very important that a student studies hard and he or she should not make excuses when they do not get their work turned in on time. There is a due date for a reason! We are in college, we should not be coming up with lame excuses and giving our professors hard times.
My teacher changed the way I thought and ever since then even if I fail I know that I could do better. The growth mindset taught me to stretch myself and through the failures I learn new things and become smarter. The article Mindsets by Carol Dweck made me realize how often in different situations I was in either a fixed or growth mindset. Carol Dweck made it very clear that she opposed the growth mindset more. The growth mindset makes you think outside of the box and reach for the impossible.
Another factor of attending college is struggling with weight whether it be gaining it or losing it. Struggling with weight when attending college connects back to the anxiety, stress and pressure. Also, when attending college students get busy with assignments, studying or trying to take a break from all the work that is given to them. These are just some of the disadvantages that keep students from attending
Kids all over America aren't getting enough sleep and not being able to give there full potential. There has been study's showing that this is affecting the students a lot. This is making kids tired in school so they don't focus as much. Because of the lack of sleep, kids grades are also decreasing. This is affecting there education and could possibly impact there SAT scores ,and maybe even not get them into a college they want to go to.
To students, sitting in such classes is very boring (Chaudhari, 2017). Another set of students say that they pay for the classes and they are the ones to decide which class to attend and not. Students believe that they are capable of gaining more knowledge even without going to classes. A study conducted recently reports that effort and intelligence are more important for grades and not the attendance. Students agree to this statement made as they feel that their focus and determination can get them high grades.
Most of their time is spent in school and when they get home, there are still a bunch of home works to work on and chapter exams to study. This gives rise to the reason that students have a maximum sleep of 4-5 hours per night or even none at all and therefore, sleep deprived. Though at least 68.2% of the students answered that they cram the night before, the outcome would still be that they lack sleep. The reasons may vary from the choices of the students, they may have chosen to hang out with friends even on class days or the exams and projects are due the following day. Nevertheless, one of the major causes why students experience stress, depression, weight gain, mood swings and tiredness is all because of sleep deprivation.
Another reason is because they tend to cheat. Lastly, paying students will only help in the short run not the long run. Paying a student is a horrible idea because it takes the motivation of learning from a student, they can cheat, and it only helps in the short run. First of all, schools should not pay students for good grades because they can lose their motivation to learn. Edward Deci says, “Most children are by nature motivated to learn,”.
In our paper, it was designed to study some of the reasons why some of the students in the university come to classes not on time. The common reason of the students why they come to school late is that they overslept because they had the lack of time sleeping last night. According to Dafiaghor (2011), going late to bed is one of the major causes of lateness to school. Going late to bed could result in waking up late, as could be deduced from the literal meaning of the saying “early to bed early to rise”. Most of the time the reason why the students go to bed late because of watching television; watching their favourite movie, or surf the net.
In some cases, grades are determinants of a student’s superiority inside the classroom. Some students think they are better than others because they have higher grades than them. This scenario causes some students to lose interest in learning and quit school. On the other hand, the students who get good grades become motivated to study and explore every depth of
