Banned books in the classroom Banned books there are plenty of them in the United States of America, and some schools can‘t read books we have read here at our school. How would you feel if maybe one of your favorite books was banned and say you couldn’t share it with your friends to enjoy and learn from, or books that are used in the classroom one year and not the next. When it comes to banned books and such we need to look at what banned books are with also what challenged books are and what their difference is. What are some of the cases that have come about with banned books and challenged books in schools, and why they were banned and challenged, what can we do to be the help of banned books in the classroom, and also what we can do about
Personal attack shows an attack on the character of a person rather than his or her opinions or arguments. Ms. Campbell is the head of a department who also a teacher. She was totally looked down on the student in class 203 because many of them are on probation, can’t be relied on and are the lost cause’s. For example, when Mrs. Gruwell finds out a new book to let the student read but Ms. Campbell is not giving it to the student.

Most of them all they want is to graduate and get their high school diplomas. Sherry writes that “tens of thousands of 18-year-olds will graduate this year and be handed meaningless diplomas” (1). She wrote this because most of these kids who were awarded on could not read or write properly and therefore, they are back in night school along with adults who are trying to get their G.E.D. to get a better job. By that saying “[today’s kids are] getting cheated on by our educational
School is a place where you go to spend about half of your life learning about topics that simply do not interest you or that truly won’t help you in the future. The U.S government tells the teachers what they need to teach in their schools for the class curriculums, so that the students can learn a healthy amount of material. The best thing is that many high schools fail to teach their students important things. Many teachers just pass students along through their class, because they don’t want to hold them back and deal with them for another year, but soon enough most of us move onto college. I’ve seen many people fail during college, because their high school did not push them to try to achieve great grades.
Standardized Testing; Are they so bad? Standardized testing can come with huge consequences for students and even teachers.

That student named Kyron Birdine did not find this test necessary just like majority of the other students.
In our freshman year of high school ninth graders must learn the many things in each of their subjects. In english class students are required to learn William "Bard of Avon" Shakespeare’s works. With Shakespeare 's works of literature and drama being 400 years old it’s expected that many people don’t want Barb’s works to be taught in the curriculum in schools. Shakespeare 's works should not be taught to students in schools because it’s difficult for students to understand, his work is not culturally diverse, and is outdated for today’s students. First, it’s difficult for many students to understand Shakespeare’s dialogue.
English class made me feel empty-headed and lost. I never knew what was going on, and I also began not to care; However, when I was placed into Ms. Hightower 's class, everything changed! She gave me confidence in myself, my abilities, and helped me uncover intelligence I never knew I had. My freshman year of high school created my hate for English. My freshman class full of 15-year old 's were forced to read and write essays about the constitution and politics we knew and understood nothing about: It was the most tedious and doltish idea in the world.
That is why many students take a break after a semester (Dasko, M., 2008), • Lack of Effort Effort is one of the reasons why students fail to succeed. They only read important sentences to pass a test, instead of reading the entire chapters (“Why Do Students Fail? Faculty 's Perspective”, 2014). They do not put

When I look back in my life, I remember failing many of my literacy tests. All throughout middle school I had a really hard time understanding poetry, novels, and even short stories. I would study really hard in order to grasp the topic and thought I understood it really well. However, when I went to go take the test I would fail and have to retake it. Back then, I never would have thought I would get good grades in any english course.

It took me a lot of exposure to the English language to understand that not everything that sounds correct is the correct grammatical structure. Many ELL students face this situations because teacher do not take their time to explain ELL students English grammar structures.
When I turned into a freshman, I decided to transfer to a deaf school for my high school years and graduated there. By then, my struggles with my writing and reading were improving by working hard. IN my freshman, there was an English teacher, Mrs. Copeland-Samaripa, a strict teacher I ever had seen and I failed this class once because of lack of my doing in homework and tests. I didn’t want to repeat the grade so I decided to work hard by studying notes for test and turned homework in on time. For next two years, I really didn’t learn lot about writing because of different teachers weren’t taught me very well then in my senior year, a bearded man, Mr. Dirk, came in my life.

She stated in her paper that for many students the idea of revision makes them uncomfortable and can lead to them not spending very much time working on it. She found that the students were never taught how to truly revise their essays (Sommers 380-382). After reading and
According to The Education Writers Association, “More and more schools throughout the world need teachers,” most students do not want to be a teacher because they just finished schooling themselves. So why would students go back to school for all those years just to go back to school to teach children who remind them of themselves. Schools around the world are hurting for more people to become teachers nowadays. Anyone wanting to become a teacher has to go through fingerprinting, which means anyone wanting to become a teacher cannot have anything on their personal records or even if they happen to have a traffic
