In my mind brief yet tremendous thoughts with meanings were popping in my head. Not having to take anymore modified test, not being restricted to certain classes, not having to go into a special education classroom after school, and most importantly not being read too by a teacher on test like a child. However, the negative thoughts were also filling in my head as well. The most terrifying thought was if the man thought that I needed to be in the special education program in high school. Taking special education in high school would have been a big downbreak on me.
Besides, school wasn't that easy for me because I didn't know English and I couldn't communicate with the people around me nor the teachers. I was the only kid who looks different in my class and has no ideas what the teacher is talking about. It was uncomfortable for me to be around my classmates, but everyone in the class seems to be nice to me because I was the new kid. They didn’t have problems with me and I didn’t have problems with them. As time goes on, I began to feel
In “Doesn’t Anybody get a C Anymore”.by Phil Primack students do not want to accept anything less than a B+. It’s a fact that students do not have to try as hard to get a pastable grade. “That because many professor fear that tough grading will trigger poor students evaluations”(Phil Primack).
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. This is evident when “no comment seemed to be expected of us” in Miss Caroline’s class. The noun phrase “no comment” emphasis that learning is silence from Miss Caroline’s class; therefore students were unable to clarify their thoughts and questions towards what they are learning. Not being able to ask and clarify, students will not be excited for their lessons, yet motivation on learning will be
Now don’t get me wrong, I did have a good high school experience; however this isn’t about the good times I had. I want to tell you a story about something else. A real life lesson that I learned in school, something truly beneficial to my future. My senior year of high school taught me many things, however nothing compared to what I learned when I hit rock bottom that year. My second semester of school I decided that because I already knew where I was going to college I didn’t have to try as hard in school and work as hard for my grades as I had before.
The book was and is mainly objected to being banned by parents who did not want their 14-16 year old child to read such foul language. On the contrary, many teachers find that the book’s profanity is not an issue for parents or students to distress over. Joseph Millchap, a high school English teacher, has taught Of Mice and Men for the past five years. He believes once the book is understood and explained, that the profanity is not a problem by saying, “there’s a lot that might make parents worried for their child, but once they see the purpose—that we’re not throwing something at their kids for shock value, then it becomes a safe environment to discuss issues that the students are going to have to deal with in life” (Millchap 2). He later goes on to express his firm belief that this book provides study for many types of literary techniques such as sentence structure, further proving the point that profanity is not something for parents and students alike to stress over.
The reason I want a C is because my mom never wants an F or a low D in my grade book. She never expects me to get straight A’s and B’s but that’s why I want a C. I’m not always gonna pass every class with a C, because every class I take I always have trouble with the beginning semester. The reason for that is I never like my teachers at first, then I get to
I did not want to be the player at fault who dropped the ball and subsequently ruined the play. I tried to repel the responsibility of helping my team because I was too afraid of making a mistake and letting down my teammates. This aspect of my character dictated my behaviour during the first years of my high school life. Being a highly self-conscious, 14 year old adolescent, I also refrained from asking questions in class, afraid
During high school my grades would be slipping, but no one ever asked me why or even motivated me to work harder. I would like to be that support for children one
