This matter has grown to be worse because everyone has an opinion. In some cases books were banned from schools because parents believed there kids should not be opened to certain topic in the stories. Another issue is students have been sent home to read books for certain classes that talk about touchy subjects. For example, religion and magic. Parents who don 't approve have tried to ban the books from the school because of the material inside them.
This was an educational challenge for me because it was a totally different learning environment for me that i had to get used to quickly. My studying habits also challenged me through high school because test and quizzes were given out frequently and if you didn't know how to study you probably wouldn’t get a good grade. In 9th and 10th grade my studying habits were very poor and it showed tremendously on test and quizzes. 11th and 12th grade I took the initiative to learn how to study and not procrastinate. This was a challenge for me because test and quizzes took up the most percentage over classwork and homework which means one test or one quiz could drop your grade
But that all changed after WW2 and during the cold war; scientists were needed and encouraged and the majority of people thought that the children needed to “catch up” to their soviet counterparts. . Homework is one of the leading stressors in the lives of students.in a study from the stanford school of education, a poll that was taken says that 56% of students say that any stress in their lives is because of too much homework. Less than 1% of students say that homework isn 't stressor. When asked how homework affects them, students reported lack of sleep, headaches, exhaustion and stomach problems.
Not only was it embarrassing but it was scary too, I was always scared of what I write or type might not being good enough. In elementary school I do not think I grasped the idea of forming sentences in chronological order. The thoughts in my head bounced everywhere, it was extremely hard for me to stay on topic. Most of the time when I was telling a story I would find myself getting sidetracked and talking about something that does not necessarily relate to the story, but came into my head because of the story I was explaining. Teachers that I had also never took the time to address what my problem was, I guess they assumed it was something I would grow out of.
Therefore it generates an inequality between students of public schools that are thought in local languages and students of private schools that are thought in English. Which leads to making parents and teenagers apathetic to their own language and schools that are thought in own languages. And most importantly it separates students who can afford to study in English-medium schools and those who cannot. Which basically leaves no value to the local language schools and by which the language itself stays invaluable. In Conclusion, English is dramatically taking place of local languages in different parts of the world.
The next day both of the students are lost in thought and have no clue about what the quiz is about, as a result, both students most likely failed that quiz for not listening and for having a phone in the middle of class. As a result, many people and students might think that having a phone can be good during school hours. However, they should not use phones during school hours. Taking a phone can cause students to cheat, cyber-bully, (a student or in some cases even a teacher) and it can be a serious distraction to everyone in the classroom. Students are taking too much advantage of cell phone use and that is just not right.
Lack of reading materials is definitely an issue that most of the school experiences. With the increasing number of students every year, the schools could not cater to the needs of the students at times. Issues with school funds, paper works and financial procedures will definitely take some time in order to provide sufficient books for the students. The quality and the relevance of books should be in accordance to student’s needs and levels of proficiency as well. Students motivation towards reading is also a major constraint in this programme.
Cases of writing problems: Chou (2011) has listed a number of reasons why international students studying in an English-speaking country encounter a lot of stress and obstacles when writing their assignments. Firstly, students might come from different cultural backgrounds where they are fully dependent on teachers. They also have not been trained to be critical thinkers and they might have lower expectations than those of their teachers as they consider themselves second language learners. Al-Khsawneh (2010) indicated that the students identified that the teaching method and the environment are the main causes of their weaknesses in English. Their Weak qualification in English is either related to the lack of student motivation, or the teacher’s interest.
(INSERT Homer’s work ) The discussion in the current paper has aimed to respond to the research questions posed in the first chapter. The third question asked about Why do CHE students fail to obey the English-Only Policy inside the class? This study found that the reason why students failed to obey it because most of the students are lack of confidence in speaking English and they are scared that some of their classmates might laugh at them and might bully them if they can’t pronounce their English properly. And also they have some problems in terms of their grammar, speaking English fluently and their vocabulary. Our questionnaire asked also the students “Does speaking only English in your class makes you feel nervous?” 63% answered Yes while only 27% of the CHE students answered No, therefore the reasons are lack of confidence , nervous or having anxiety that their classmates/schoolmates will bully them because of their grammar, fluent speaking and
According to a recent survey (2009) many rural students are joining the public schools with a strong disliking towards English. As a result, they never take it so seriously. To make the matters even worse, all the efforts of the educational authorities to find an effective means of teaching the English language are in vain. Some students grow a strong aversion towards learning languages as they find the classes boring. True to their belief, they are forced to do plentiful drills and a few controlled activities.
