That is how we establish community build on trustworthy relationship. So, in my following reaction I am analyzing the movie “Hard Lessons” according to the book chapter Becoming Trustworthy Leader, and find out to what extend Mr. McKenna could be considered trustworthy leader. The movie “Hard Lessons” is based on the real story where new principal Mr. George McKenna of Washington High School is appointed to fight against violence, gangs and drugs users at school. He is aimed to change all the inner system of the school reforming learning and teaching styles, and inviting parents to contribute to the school change. Despite all hardships he faces, Mr McKenna does not quit, moreover he meets his goal establishing safer environment, school disciplinary and improving the education.
Atticus wants to teach his kids Jem and Scout life lessons at an early age so they grow up as respectable people. Atticus takes the trial knowing the consequence that him and his family will be harrassed by the town because it is the right thing to do. Atticus finch decides to defend Tom Robinson to be a good role model for his children and prove that the “Golden Rule” is a rule to
In conclusion, Richard probably never regrets not one decision he made as the self proclaimed millionaire he is. His parents are probably very proud of him with all of his accomplishments and do not regret, not neglecting his disobedience. This article is a great example of the American dream, at a young age, you should always try to push your kids towards success, whether it’s getting them to do the higher class up in math or even having them volunteer at the local pet store. You should do anything to get them to learn good habits and get them to think school is quote unquote ‘cool‘, a lot of kids get bad grades on purpose due to them not caring or they think it’s ‘cool’. Putting your kids in a private school is a huge advantage because the teachers are hands on and like their jobs and most of the kids who are in there, are there to learn.
I feel that to properly understand me you should receive an understanding about my high school experience, my academic mistakes, my long term goals,and how I plan on succeeding at Lindenwood University. I strongly believe that Lindenwood is the perfect place to cultivate my interests into a career and I want to convince whoever it may concern that i will not waste this opportunity. High School was always this vision of freedom that middle school Destiny yearned for. Being a fan of cliche high school show tropes I thought being in high school would be like being in an episode of “Glee”. I soon realized that highschool is not some teenage dream.
In the Dead Poets Society, the idea of conformity is the tradition for students in Welton Academy. For instance, in school, students we forced to dresses the same school blazers and follow the same "four pillars" (tradition, honor, discipline, excellence). That shows the repetition in school spirits even though it can't work for everyone. Similarly, in Neil's family, his father seems to care a lot about his son's success by layouts his own path to become a doctor. This illustrates through the discipline and conformity which leads to achieve 'success' but in a narrow, material sense of getting good grades, going to a good school to get a good job.
Many technical and trade programs can begin in high school and students can take advantage of the opportunity to learn what interests them before they find themselves in their senior year of high school applying to colleges they may have no interest in attending. Post-secondary education does not need to be an all or nothing prospect, “vocational education and academic education are not competitive but complementary” (Herr, 2013, p.
Spencer 's writing helped me to see that my motive for wanting to gain knowledge was wrong. Like many college students I 'm motivated by the success I can obtain. I push myself hard in school because I believe that after graduation I will get an amazing job and prosper in life. I wanna be wealthy, and I let that goal motivate me to do well in school. I 'm placing a higher power on the concept of success and money, rather then allow God to be my all, my motivator.
Lessons Learned Over the Years as a Mentor PFORCE Class at American Indian Public Charter School • All boys want to learn, don’t let them fool you. • All boys want to have fun • At the start act like a man without having to prove it to them. They will see the man in you and from that point on you can gain their respect as you give it. • Some boys resent or disrespect female teachers due to their culture, abuse at home, or no male role models • Boys will be boys-they will get in trouble time and time again. The key is to give them the proper incentives to want to do their work and behave in class and outside of class.
Department of Education is as follows, “Our mission is to promote student achievement and preparation for global competitiveness by fostering educational excellence and ensuring equal access (U.S. Department of Education).” However, the current education system can be compared to a line from transcendentalist Ralph Emerson's “Self-Reliance”. He is condemning men who conform to societal norms when he writes, “He is supported on crutches, but lacks so much support of muscle (Emerson).” In all actuality, this also addresses the modern man who is graduating grade school or college, by thinking of the crutches as a metaphor to the education that gave him the knowledge to pass a standardized test like the ACT or SAT. The support of muscle can be seen as the natural skills needed to succeed in life that was not given but had to be earned through training, much as muscles in the body are. A student can never be truly successful on an educational crutch, they must develop the muscular skills of a trade to be successful
Considering Harry’s questionable childhood, readers wonder how he will fare in school. Harry manages to find a special place in the headmaster’s heart early on. After discovering the Mirror of Erised, Harry stares into the mirror, and notices Dumbledore standing behind him. Rather than being angry about his choice to wander the school at night, Harry “was relieved to see that [Dumbledore] was smiling” (Book 1 p.213). Dumbledore then becomes a prominent source of advice for Harry about growing up, especially the choices he makes in the process of doing so.
I believe the program will do nothing but help me grow and strive to be a better student and continue being involved. This program membership will open new doors for me and make my high school and college experiences so much smoother. I think I will really benefit from having the college courses intermixed with my high school classes because I will be learning higher level information along with the high school work to challenge myself in Montco while having time in Pottstown High School to work on my electives. The program would keep me focused on
“America Needs Its Nerds” The average high school/elementary school student is looked down upon for wanting to be academically curious. Students who want to be our nation’s next great minds in any respective field. However, our society brings these students down and insists that they spend their academic career partying. Leonid Fridman objects this social norm in the book “America Needs Its Nerds” Through the use of logic, Fridman attempts to persuade his audience on seeing academic curiosity as a gateway for our nation’s future. Being part of one of the nations top schools is a great honor.
I feel as though this book has many life lessons, and is very inspirational. Michael Oher is very strong and fast. Big Tony takes Michael under his care and tries to get him into a high status, white private school. Michael has terrible grades, and he is functioning at a grade level way below where he should be. Administrators of the school still accept him and agree to help him with highschool.
Furthermore, Sodapop had to drop out out of high school to help Darry support the family. Darry wants Ponyboy’s fate to be successful, unlike his and Sodapop’s. As Ponyboy achieves high grades and does well in school, he will become more like a Soc. This adjustment would occur because Socs are known for being superior students. On the other hand, greasers were known for being simpleminded, or as Sodapop refers to himself, “dumb” (17).
I would tell freshman what I know I could have done better or known in high school. In other words, what I believe they will need in order to succeed. In class, not be afraid to ask questions, and establish good relationships with teachers. Good relationships with teachers helps when having a hard time in class makes problems easier to fix. I would say don 't be afraid to get involved.
