This can affect their education as they will not want to stay on in further education, as they can get a job and make money straight away. ), and Present-time orientation (The w/c believe that you should savour every day, as tomorrow may never come. With this frame of mind, they may think education is a waste of time, as it may not benefit you if tomorrow never comes.) These two sociologists’ theories and practices prove that there are major differences in achievement between classes. However, these theories stereotype, and blame the family too much.
In the Pursuit of Perfect by Tal Ben-Shahar, he sheds some light into the possibility of obtaining a happy life even with the struggles and challenges that may come our way. It is how we tackle these obstacles and avoid being a perfectionist and adopting an Optimalistic approach. Tal Ben-Shahar provides a step-by-step process to conquer the fear of failure and by taking these tools we learn and apply them to our love life and our lives in general. Failure is a word that most of us don’t want to hear or even experience. We do everything we can to steer away from failing by putting a ton of pressure on ourselves, creating intense anxiety and ultimately being unhappy.
Employers not trusting students’ grades will only make the already competitive job market that much harder for recently graduated students to enter. So, what can we do to fix this problem? Universities need to initiate changes that will increase standards instead of decreasing them. Even though some teachers see the problem with grade inflation, many others have become so accustomed to it, that they no longer even realize it is happening. This means that universities must be
In addition, the students have to adjust to new and more precise writing styles and expectations required of college professors as opposed to high school teachers. The student’s inability to manage their time with their academics is the leading second cause of academic stress. If a student has never practiced effective time management, then it would be very difficult to apply them effectively during their freshman year of college. While freshman students have the most stress due to several new adjustments, there is stress on upperclassmen as well. College life has become a lot more competitive.
College students should pursue either these qualities or skills to succeed in college. If students were to not meet any of the qualities or skills, it will be hard and frustrating for these students to succeed. There are many qualities and skills that are needed to succeed in college including determination and effort. One quality a student must have is putting forth the effort to attend class. If students are determined to attend class regularly, they will increase their chances of learning the material.
Thus, employers insist that students should increase their educational achievements. As more students struggle to find a job nowadays, big concern has occurred, whether graduates are equipped to function in the work place. Many employers agree that graduates are not meeting their expectations. Likewise, they think colleges are not doing enough to prepare students for the workforce. As a result, employers have suggested that “higher education institutions have to raise student achievement” as well as help them develop the skills they need in order to succeed.
This is where the arguments may kick in but in the end you will be more appreciated for being you and you in turn will be better understood. Finally the most important reason why occasional arguments are good or healthy is that it doesn’t allow old or past problems to become future problems. They allow you to discuss them. If a problem goes unnoticed or not talked about it just
Students now days confront more pressures than students in the late 1970s. Although Zinsser focuses on the kinds of pressures Yale students facing in1979, many of these remain relevant for college students today. There are four kinds of pressure and these pressures include the need to develop time management and study skills appropriate for college work, the desire for good grades, the desire to meet familial expectations, and the need to find employment in a competitive job market after graduation. Zinsser takes a negative view on the college pressures he identified which I think is more suffering for students today. In the dialogues
Their classmates may not find it okay for them to get good grades while they do nothing, while the classmates study hard and long to get the grades that they do. It can also lead the professor to think that the class is too easy. They may feel the need to increase the level of difficulty. Those in the class may not think that is fair either. If a professor finds that a person is cheating, they have to report them to the main office of the college, this can lead to difficulties for a student.
Each author has their own unique way of explaining their points. For example, in “Americans Skip School”, Barber starts off by saying how the hopeless struggle many youths are facing today, and where they will end up in the near future. On the other hand, in “College Pressure”, Zinsser notes that students operate on stress overload brought on by a number of factors, most of which is brought on by the overwhelming urgency and need to succeed and do their best. Despite the fact that college is supposed to be a time when further studies are explored and developed. Students fear that if they are unable to find a field and succeed in their classes then they will fail in life.
