First of all Standardized test will not help students in the future. For example schools are spending less time on other classes and focusing on only math, reading, and writing. ( "Do Standardized Tests Show an Accurate View of Students’ Abilities?" Concordia Portland Online. N.p., n.d.
This happens a lot to other people. McPherson stated in his book Stressed Out in school that homework, “Creates Stress and anxiety.” (McPherson 40). No one should have to have this stress and anxiety at such a young age. Another example is In the article “List of homework should be banned pros and cons,” it says ,“Student’s minds and abilities are tested all day in school, which can be very draining. When they come home, they need to be able to relax and pursue other interests.
Teachers usually argue that students don’t have enough time to complete work during the day, and that homework reinforces the things students learn in class. While the former is true, the latter is actually a myth. There is actually no academic benefit from homework. Sources like Washington Post have researched the correlation of the amount of homework load to academic success and have concluded that there is none. Schools from Japan and Finland, who score in the top ranks globally, have under
In the begining of highschool it was very challenging for me to balance school and friends making me choose friends which in this case was so not important or even worth it. Friends change, just like seasons and you might not always have the same ones. Several people that you might come across with are people who just teach you a lesson and aren’t in your life for the long run. My freshman friends taught me a lot because I am not so close to any of them, but during the time they sure did distract me from everything in my life. I started being disrespectful to my parents and not care about my grades.
High school can be rough! You have a lot of homework and to pre-pare for college. I feel like you have less friends in high school, then you do in grade school, you have all these friends and you’re always spending time together, but once you get in high school, I feel like you lose all your friends. Once you get into high school I feel you get too know who your real friends are. I try not to get too close to friends in high school because you never know if they will stick with you or they end of leaving.
The life of high school was way too different from the elementary, and anyone who passed through it can agree with me. Many aspects had changed, and I was not used to those changes. As the years went by, I became more accustomed to the life in high school, and I was able to adapt to it. Like any other class, our class was full of crazy and funny classmates. Furthermore, in my student life, I got used to being made fun of, rejected and all that.
Getting organized, and preparing yourself is a great way to get great grades in school. Step one is to attend all of the classes. One may think that skipping out on class once or twice is fine, but then once or twice then becomes a few here and there, which then leads to being gone all the time. It may be the boring class that no one ever pays attention in, or it may be the class that is really easy to understand. Either way, students need to get to class.
In high school, I learned that study groups are key to performing well and properly learning material. In college, I learned through the tough way that time management, environment, and self-motivation are also key elements of learning. Thanks to my negative experience last semester, I now know that back-to-back classes work better for me and that all-nighter never work. I would still like to work on my self-discipline to the point that I efficiently get my work done without any distractions. That being said, one of my goals to become a better learner in the future is to get away from distractions and finding true
“Reflection Proyect” Being in High School almost for four years, I have growth as student, also as a person, and I had developed some skills, thanks to my teachers I have had the greatest experiences as a student and now at least six months to get graduated checking my transcript data and looking for my goals for the future, I will like to give recommendations to freshman, since I had passed for that level, and I know how it feels like. My skills in classes of high School represents part of who I’m, In freshman year I had taken easy classes, because I started as an english learning, for me was really complicated because I had no idea what the teacher talked about,but everyday I keep my goal in life,that is be a lawyer, this goal is important to me because I like defend people,I like when things get done
Implications This experiment was not successful, because I didn’t take the time to study. I didn’t take the time to actually sit down and ask for help. I didn’t take the time to sit down and do my homework like I was suppose to. I was just being lazy, because of my actions my grades have dropped lower than anything. I have 4 grades I need to get up.
