Edward Deci says, “Most children are by nature motivated to learn,”. This can lead to no interest in learning. The effect of this is the child not paying attention in class. After not paying attention in class they don’t know what to do. When they don’t know what to do, they tend to not do the assignment or turn the assignment in late, but turning it in late or not doing it can lead to adverse scores.
Jones suggest that, “The reasons students engage in academic dishonesty vary, but as commonly understood, the overriding reason is performance” (144). This directly results in them cheating, because in truth when one is confused one tends to find the shortest way out of things and not utilize the difficult and time consuming method. In case that was not enough, there are those students who simply refuse to be anything short of perfect or first in everything and anything they do. This ideology indirectly forces those kids to cheat in order to maintain their positions in class. In addition,
A student who receives excessive homework “will miss out on active playtime, essential for learning social skills, proper brain development, and warding off childhood obesity, homework a concept that everyone knows about. When they hear it, some cringe while others stand tall. Homework is a life changer for all students. It can help them prosper, or it can hinder them from achieving academic success. Is homework worth it?
Everyone says that it’s so hard, or so much work, but if you stay on task and pay attention in class it’s not that bad. I was one person to struggle in middle school grade wise, but since I was told that high school would be so much harder, I’ve paid a lot more attention in class and done all my work. Another thing I would tell the current eight graders, is that you don’t need friends to get through high school. It’s understandable if you want to have friends so you’re not lonely all the way through high school, but you don’t need them and its better if you don’t have them so it’s easier to pay attention in classes and get more work done
Based on the class discussions most of the students agreed that senior year is just as important as the other grade levels, however, some students said homework wasn’t important. Senior year, for most students, is the year they look forward to the most because they get more opportunities. Coming from Walter Kirn, senior year is, “...an adolescent Mardi Gras.” In that case, if high schools were to get rid of senior year, teachers would still have to teach the required curriculum that would of been taught senior year. Therefore, that information would have to be taught to the students in the three years of high school. Students wouldn’t be able to fail any classes, because the teachers would have to rush through sections or chapters in order to have to teach all of the curriculum for the year.
Students with disabilities felt isolated from their classmates (Sundaram, 2011). To solve the issue, teachers themselves should execute more effort and time just to aid students to cope up with the demands of the subjects. However, there are some students having the attitude of not involving themselves in classroom activity. Aloof students remain to be aloof since the teacher will reach out to
“There is no school-based program that specifically targets executive functioning, stress regulation and stress reduction,” Michelle Cumming, a member of the Council for Exceptional Children, said. The high-stress levels that students have towards grades will slowly lead to lack of progression. Furthermore, the stress can also lead to depression, anxiety and certain heart diseases. Many people assume that students that apply a 'dominating force ' towards their school work have honourable grades, though it some cases this is false. This is because the stress from overstudying causes students to slack and become anxious.
These days, most lack the creativity to step outside the box and think up new. Why is that? Because when they were at the age in which their creativity was overflowing and their energy was endless, they were told to be quiet, sit down, and do what they were told. They were expected to sit still and absorb what was taught, leaving their school time experience to be rather dull and motionless. Not only was their classroom rather dull, but the time in which they could let loose and just be kids, could easily be compromised and taken away.
Out of all grades in secondary school, I believe that Grade 9 is the least important of them all. During their high school years, teenagers are studying so that they are able to pursue the future career of their choice. Teenagers including myself attempt to aim for the highest marks possible so that universities will accept our applications. Further supporting my point, universities do not look at the marks of the first two years of high school, Grade 9 especially, which goes to say how irrelevant grade nine actually is. If a student’s progression is very poor in grade nine, they can still very easily get into a good university as long as they do well in grade eleven and twelve, so the need to succeed is not there in Grade 9.
It provides an opportunity for extra rest and a less stressful environment. It also provides an opportunity for extra week days at an after-school-job, engaging in volunteer activities or pursuing additional goals. Students who are the member in a group organizations or athletes wouldn 't miss much class and have less work to make up when events occur on a day off. Teachers are just as susceptible to burning out as their students and since so many teachers achieve tenure, there is no simple way to root out teachers whose performance has slipped. By decreasing the teachers’ workload, students are able to receive an improved education without even having to change schools.
