“A Minnesota teacher of seventh and ninth grades says that she has to spend extra time in class editing papers and must 'explicitly' remind her students that is is not acceptable to use text slang and abbreviations in writing” (Cullington 89). Also, “many complain that because texting does not stress the importance of punctuation, students are neglecting it in their formal writing” (Cullington 89). These points are valid, but the evidence is limited because it is based on a few personal experiences, rather then a large study with much more research.
Teachers and professors think the Web is great to a certain point though. Teachers have noticed students are carried away by the Web because they are focusing less on reading. Carr agrees, “…. They don’t necessarily read a page from left to right and from top to bottom. They might instead skip around, scanning for pertinent information of interest… I can’t get my students to read whole books anymore…” (318).
Sometime, they even begin the final project without the instructor’s authorization and proper guidance forgetting that without the instructions they might give the wrong information. An online student also expects services at all time of the night or day. They need to understand that waiting is part if teaching and learning for the internet speed is not the same as the course speed. Internet teaching is all about following instructions and doing your work on time. Traditional students must write a thesis and take notes before writing a research
Studies show that students who are over-age for their class was held back a grade level. Not completing assignments, late work, or just missing class led up to being held back a grade. Over-age students seem to need more help in the classroom, than the regular students. Adolescents pick many excuses to drop out of school. Being bored and frustrated with class, many teens say school is irrelevant to

The use of MyMathLab will help you significantly if you use all the resources it has available. In doing homework, students will be expected to apply the principles that they have learned to complex problem solving.
Many teachers do not like “catching plagiarists and bringing them to academic justice.” As she states, it is not hard to just cite the author that originally had the information you are using (Bojar). Plagiarism is becoming a big problem in the school system. Many students do not understand what needs to be cited and what does not. The school system should teach students the proper way to cite, and they should teach them that copy and pasting is not writing a paper. According Bojar to students at the community college have a hard time juggling classes along with his or her family and a job.
However, one of the most important ways to learn is to read by yourself. Online classes or home schools require vast amount of self reading time. In some of our classes, we also need to read the textbook to understand. So, Plato 's quote is inappropriate to describe college learning B) Summary At the night of graduation, the author is tired of the endless speech. She only offers a single sentence from Plato--" In these conversation, sometimes a spark is kindled which henceforth nourishes itself."
Talking develops relationships instead of improving educational performance. This takes time from the lesson and puts the class behind. This is not fair to the other students that are making legitimate efforts to learn. Because the student was talking, everyone has to wait and lose potential learning time. Therefore, talking does not only affect the one who was talking but also everyone else in the class.
Online classes required self determination and a lot time. This is definitely not what I had in mind! Procrastination and grades don’t mix well and the outcome has many consequences. Happiness is hard to achieve when you are always in a rush to finish a task that was supposed to be done weeks or even months before hand. For example I waited all summer to sign up for fall classes and as a result I got stuck with most classes that other students didn’t want to take.
I would have cheer practice early in the morning and then have class shortly after and be exhausted, I would have to go eat me a red bull in order to be able to think straight. There would be days that I would have homework online and not do it because, I would forget or be too tired to finish my homework. I noticed that this was becoming a distraction since, my grades we starting to drop. This was not good because I had to retake classes that I should have passed the first time but choose to goof off and entertain myself rather than do what was important. Since cheerleading was so time consuming I still found time for my personal
