Everyone says that it’s so hard, or so much work, but if you stay on task and pay attention in class it’s not that bad. I was one person to struggle in middle school grade wise, but since I was told that high school would be so much harder, I’ve paid a lot more attention in class and done all my work. Another thing I would tell the current eight graders, is that you don’t need friends to get through high school. It’s understandable if you want to have friends so you’re not lonely all the way through high school, but you don’t need them and its better if you don’t have them so it’s easier to pay attention in classes and get more work done
Cutting homework or senior year, will make the education process harder for most students who learn at a slower pace. The four articles we read in class gave us all different viewings to how and why it’s important for people to have in their life. In Frederick Douglas and Malcolm X, they wrote about how they didn’t get the same opportunities as other to get educated because they were a different race, however, both of them took the time to self educate themselves and were successful. Education and literacy have been the two most important parts of people 's lives. In today’s society, everyone gets the same opportunities as each other when it comes to
Make High School Great Again Most adults remember high school as the best years of their lives; however, this is not the reality for students today. The majority of teenagers would agree that high school is currently dreadful, mainly due to the outrageous bulk of homework they receive each night. Homework is now consuming students’ lives, leaving no free time to have fun, attend extracurricular events, sports games etc. Homework is becoming a popular public debate because of the adverse effects it has on America’s teens. In fact, many studies have proven that abolishing homework has a positive outcome.
Getting in trouble over something that I could so easily have done made me feel the need to work twice as hard to remember to finish and turn in all of my homework on time. I’m usually also pretty good at school work, but by losing and/or never turning it in I could’ve run the risk of being held back because it may have seemed like I wasn’t understanding the classes when I actually was. That brings up another reason I need to become more organized, my mom would have been extremely mad if I’d been held back because I wasn’t turning in my homework, and that was probably much scarier to me at the time then actually being held back. The second group that helped influence this trait is very directly related to the influence that my school had on me, my peers. Most of my close friends I had all through school were very good right away at getting
I also went through this trial to start my journey to the path of wisdom. Recently I changed my school and joined the new school in middle of the school year where I had already missed a quarter. I felt bad about the fact that a political conflict between two countries affected my schooling. However, I stayed strong and even tried to catch up with what I missed. It wasn’t easy for me to study what I missed because the British and the American curriculum are like the two poles of the magnet: they are different and the way of teaching are also different.
It is somewhat similar to APA which I have used in the past, but has some contrasting differences that makes it standout on its own. I like to think I have given a good amount of effective review to my peers so far; which is something that has really developed during the duration of this course. In high school I always struggled at telling others what should be done to create an effective paper because I was more sensitive and afraid of hurting others feelings. Now, I have come to the realization of how
However, students did learn all this information in school already. Also, most of the time teachers give homework that introduces new topics that students might have trouble understanding on their own. Which can lead to them getting overwhelmed and spending a large amount of time to get it done or even choosing not to do it because they don’t
I have acknowledge that my family members and school played a major role in my childhood and one such interrelated relationship they had was the pressure from my parents to be normal. Don’t get me wrong but I loved learning so much, however school simply ruined it for me. The early hours of waking up to the horrible facilities that my school had were just some of the reasons that put me off from exploring my passion and love for learning new things. The fact that everything was just memory based and had no stable reason on why we were performing this constant repetition. It almost drove me crazy as a child.
A bright student can get great grades on tests and love to do hands-on, difficult experiments, but even with all of their intelligence, they can still stress over homework assignments. That is because the homework load is so large that it is overwhelming. He never has time to have a healthy life for a child his age and it is a daily balance between grades, friends, and sleep. This is the problem with many students in middle through high-school. Homework is harmful because students can become extremely stressed, lose important development years where they should be learning how to socialize and they can even completely lose their appreciation for learning.
Learning about the students’ home environment and family situations really hit me hard. I remember thinking the first two days that I must find somewhere else to intern because the I could not emotional handle the student’s sad stories. But I’ve taken those stories to instill passion in my work and dedicate all my time and effort in the kids. I look at the school day as a positive eight hours for the kids. I try very hard to give the students the emotional support they need to become successful for kindergarten and the future.
