Homework is one of the burdensome deeds in high school. Students hate to do it; teachers hate to grade it. Some people wonder, “If everyone hates homework so much, why not simply do away with it and make everybody happy?” If only things were so easy; unfortunately, they are not. Even though homework can often be tedious and time consuming, it does serve a reasonable, justifiable purpose. While it is often inconvenient and unpleasant, it is important that high school students be assigned homework to complete to help teach time management and provide extra practice with the content at hand.
Lipman supports her claim by proving that statistically, disciplinary teachers are improving their students, students that don’t show grit are proven to seek failure, and the further teachers push their students, the more goals they’ll achieve. The author’s purpose is to express the ideals of strict teachers and to inform readers and students that teachers are hard on them for a reason. In order to indicate why students shouldn’t feel threatened or frightened by tough teachers, Lipman also shows that teachers are improving the learning environment. I strongly agree with the author’s claim on how tough teachers receive astounding results. A primary reason I strongly agree with Lipman’s claim is because she demonstrates certain statistics that show how strict teachers are improving their students more sufficiently.
For example, decrease in importance of high-stakes and use diverse strategies. Most of the disadvantages of it effects the school, teachers, and students as a whole not just individually. Many problems have occurred from these tests such as test taking anxiety, competition between teachers, racial and poverty inequalities, and devotion towards tests. These reasons show how standardized tests are not helping schools and students, but, hurting them. Effects of student test taking are said to lead to test related nervousness.
Most students learn by constructing knowledge based on an engaged learning process rather than by absorbing knowledge from passive sources. The diversity of student backgrounds, abilities and learning styles makes each person unique in the way he or she reacts to information. The intersection of diverse student backgrounds and active learning needs a comfortable, positive environment in which to take root. Dr. King continues by explaining, “Education which stops with efficiency may prove the greatest menace to society. The most dangerous criminal may be the man gifted with reason, but with no morals.” From back then to today’s society, kids are failing because they lack those morals that they need to succeed.
Some of the advantages of being a school counselor are, according to Ben, the challenges of working out problems with students. Ben also likes working with other people. For me personally, I think the challenge is a disadvantage, because when I am under pressure, I start to freak out. What I found surprising about A Day in the Life of a school counselor is that a person in that field actually teaches a class. Also what surprised me me was that school counselors do not have much time to be alone and think, they are always moving, as with any other teacher.
Education is a nation’s investment on its people and one that holds a direct relationship to its future. A well-structured education system benefits not just a few individuals but an entire generation and the community that is built upon them. A pressing issue that plagued many students in our educational system is the lack of critical thinking ability and incompetency in making individual judgement due to Spoon-fed education and Exam Cramming system. Spoon-fed education has led to poor reasoning skills amongst students as most students are over-dependent on information relayed from teachers. This has an adverse effect on the development of one’s ability to think critically from different viewpoints.
He often felt under pressure to write the perfect sentence with the perfect words and phrases making his writing unsuccessful in his teachers eyes. Now as a teacher himself he finds his students struggling to put words on paper and express themselves. He blames the educational system for his students inability to write with their own style and voice. Ballenger stresses the ability to write is more about the topic and the student’s interest in the essay than the grammar and structure of the essays. He finds that other professors view their students essays as badly written with sloppy writing, yet Ballenger focuses on the writing that his students do well.
Attending class is important so I don't miss any assignments and get behind. Being in class is important because its proven that students are more likely to succeed when they have an good attendance. I do much better in school when I don't miss a lot of days. It is very easy to get behind in class when I don't show up. I do miss a lot of school because of sickness but I am going to try and go even when I don't feel good.
Froylan Mendez Professor Mattoon English 1C 12 March 2017 High School Education The education system in high schools is more troubling than elementary and middle school because those are the kind of students that shouldn’t get all the attention. From past experiences with the system and everything that comes along with it. Some of the problems with the education would be the teachers giving too much attention, how they grade and giving extra credit when it isn’t necessary. Teachers shouldn’t be giving students too much attention because they’ll expect it more from every person. The teachers have a weird way of grading student’s papers such as curving their tests, making them easy enough so they don’t have to grade anything.
Laws such as NCLB, and RTTT should no longer exist. The system of scoring that is currently used hurts both slower, and advanced students due to its pressure and ease. "Tracking generally hurts slower students but does not help more advanced students" ("How Standardized Testing Damages Education" 1). Tracking of test scores as a school or even class only hurts both sides, advanced students get bored because they have to slow down for the other students, and slower students feel pressured to rush, because of the advanced students. Currently, students spend an immense amount of time studying for both low-risk and high-risk assessments respectively.
Today, there still lots of influences, even though roadblocks hold me back and make me do bad decision’s. During school it might be boring to do work but at the end we all learn new things. Also, many of us get lectured from our parents about a bad grade or a poor decision, but after middle school or high school the advice pays off to know about. Even though, lots of people know what they did and might be honest with the choice they made and that will help them with avoiding the roadblocks of knowing they were lying to the parent. To avoid the roadblocks is to do the right thing and make the better choice.
This usually negatively affects many friendships since one may care more about their marks than their friends. This affected my relationships with my peers that I always worked with positively, but the relationship with those who I never or rarely worked with did not go so well. There are many factors that affect how my relationships with others at school can have positive and negative outcomes. It is important to understand these issues and always go for what is
I agree with you going to the same school I saw the conformity and all of the other issues. I think we are in death valley too some classes just have no energy in them and they are boring. I find the conformity very depressing for the students crreativity and it hinders their ability to learn. I want to be a moving teacher I want to foster creativity and diversity in my classroom. I hope that we can learn to accomedate the students better to incourage them to learn and
Most teachers have great relationships with their students and want them to succeed. Some students struggle and end up cheating. Having an Honor Code would destroy these resected student-teacher relationships non existent due to the fact that students would have to tell on other students. The balance that had been established would be destroyed and could never be recovered. Having an Honor Code will fracture the trust that students have with teachers.
Standardized tests have caused so many teachers to be labeled due to how their students performed on tests. If their class performs well, the teacher is deemed to be a "good" teacher ; if their class does not perform so well than the teacher is often labeled "unfit" . Teachers dedicate so much teaching time to standardized tests and state exams when in all actuality, they are harming students more than they are helping them. For this and many other reasons, I believe that standardized and state tests do not measure educational quality and should not be a requirement. From pre-kindergarten until students have received all of their credits, they are required to take state test and exams, which have no reflection on how they 're
