In college, I am positive that there will be professors with outrageous time limits for exams, but the ACT test makers or rule creators take their time limitation to a whole new level. For example, on the math portion of this standardized test, everyone has 60 minutes in order to complete 60 questions. This is unjust because math is a subject that requires working out problems with many formulas that I have trouble remembering. Some problems on the test require multiple formulas and take at least a couple of minutes to work out. Even if a student knew how to work out these problems, the time limit would either prevent them from answering correctly, or rush them to the point of messing up.
It is something I’ve been doing on and off for years in a voluntary capacity. I am interested in different learning styles and theories as I feel any information that could help me as a teacher is of use to me. Although I have been in education a long time it has taken me many years to acknowledge my own learning styles. Though out my education I have tried every style and tool of education until finally learning to stick to what suits me rather than a tool that suits somebody else. This is what I’ve discovered about my learning style throughout the years; I have found that when I am in a stressful exam situation the information I can most readily recall is what I heard in class rather than anything I studied myself outside of the classroom.
Another reason is that when the reward isn’t offered anymore, will schools need to raise the stakes to keep students engaged in school? Rewarding students for satisfying grades is an atrocious idea because the student’s internal drive to succeed should drive the students to perform well in school. It also is an unpleasant idea because the school will become a business transaction, and plentiful issues can occur in the school. To begin with, students should have the motivation to succeed from their internal drive to succeed and not for the money will be rewarded at the end. A student’s internal drive should push them to succeed so they can achieve an excellent job.
I had to go to the writing center a number of times just to understand what my assignment was really about. Overall, I learned that everyone has their struggles in college, not everyone understands it. I learned that even though I struggled every day in this class, I learned what I needed to work on the most and that was applying myself more. Not only have I discussed how I transitioned into the role of a college student, but I will always be discussing the processes I followed to be successful in English
With conversations started, arguments argued, and controversy settling; the question still stands - Should students be paid for grades? It is now very clear that students should absolutely not be paid for grades; they will lose their love of learning and crush their creativity, and they will no longer feel self-motivation. Instead, teachers and parents should pour out more positive encouragement into today’s youth, which will encourage students to naturally do better in school. Also, students should take responsibility and pride in their school-work, as this is the (easiest) fix to this rapid-fire
This study abroad experience will be a valuable addition to my resume and something to discuss with potential employers. As excited as I am for my learning abroad program, I know that travel comes with challenges. Everything about this travel experience will be new; I’ve never travelled away from home or even flown on a plane before. Considering the obstacles I’ve had to face in my life, this trip would be a personal triumph, and I know I would return a stronger person. Doing something for the first time naturally makes me nervous, but my excitement is even more powerful than my nerves.
I want to improve the CPS systems especially, because of work overload a lot of children are suffering. Eventually, I would like to open my own agency that will not only empower and/or encourage children to be there better self but will also secure them a future in life. An agency that is truly going to bring in positive and great results and would not consist of burnouts/work overload. Experience as a Student In undergraduate school, there were a lot of good moments, as well as struggling moments. There were times that I wanted to quit, but that was not
Students would believe this since they may feel that their teachers may give them so much homework with such a little time period. Some might even have sports events of other school related things that may not give them much to any time to do their homework. As this does seem like a problem, teens should work this out with their teachers rather than going against what their teachers would want. In other cases, students also say that they feel the need to cheat because teachers and students have high expectations for them and want them to get good grades, putting too much pressure on them. “Well-intentioned parents who want their children to be successful in school can place so much pressure on the kids that they resort to cheating” (American federation of teachers).
While it is possible to keep friendships, unless the old friends are close, making new, more mature friends helps with communication skills with people who are older or of higher authority later on. Another issue is the unexpectedness of having real challenges in class again. A common misconception is believing that being moved ahead is no more difficult than staying in the current grade. Intellectual growth stagnates if the student isn’t presented with a challenge constantly, so being hit with the reality of the competitiveness and difficulty in school after years of slacking off isn’t a very nice experience at first. After some time, this challenge will show through deeper understanding of their subjects, and interest in what they like and want to do.
Many students are not putting in enough effort into getting good grades at school. This is why many students are making a plan to get students to get better grades. Students should be motivated tnwelnrlwenrlnelrn by their desire to learn, not only do it for the money. This makes school more of a business transaction the a place to learn a grow. There are no beneficial things paying students for good grades have in the long run.
We both believe that anything you put your mind to is possible. Now, I understand that many things can get in the way. You can get distracted by the negativity around you or you might be a little shy, like me. FCCLA has honestly impacted that though, I have been able to meet new people and learn how to deal with different situations that I’m put into everyday. When I attended the region 2 meeting I learned tons of new things.
As a freshman the transition was some what difficult for me. These are somethings I think would be good to new for the middle schoolers that are tranistioning into highschool. First keep organized. I can 't stress that enough because if you don 't you will lose things really easy and become a real mess. Another thing is a personal opinion but I don 't think that going to your locker every passing period is a good idea.
I used to think that moving around to different places was a nuisance,, but as I continued my academic life, my mindset has changed. I have gained a new perspective on life and learned that sometimes unexpected opportunities help you grow. I truly owe it to my parents, who gave me a chance to see different pieces of our wonderful
If the audience can 't relate to my writing, they will not understand my intended purpose. I will need to be sure to use facts from the article to support the ideas I present. Also, showing how age isn 't a factor while taking a class may pose a challenge. I would like my audience to understand that whether you are fresh out of high school or going back to school after 20 years, the same obstacles are in the way. No matter your age, it’s still a difficult feeling to think you are prepared to start a class and realize things are much harder than expected.
Many people would argue, perhaps, that the children need to do less extracurricular activities if they know they don’t have enough time to do them and finish their homework. But many studies have shown that extracurricular activities are more important for a child’s development than homework is. “Extracurricular activities [also] teach kids the importance of perseverance, hard work (training/practice), and build up their competitive spirit, something they will undoubtedly need upon entrance to the extremely competitive business world.” (www.behk.org,
