Ian Brown Mr. Moran English I - Honors 12 March 2012 Year-Round Schooling Pro Rebuttal The issue of having year-round school in America or not has been going around for decades. This system is practiced throughout the world with the huge exception of many of our schools. Some claim that it doesn’t make a difference to a child’s scores, but spending more time in the classroom, with shorter but often breaks, can keep their mind refreshed. Even U.S. President Barack Obama stated that the hardships and new challenges in this emerging century “demand more time in the classroom.” Some opponents of this system say that our summer vacation is the perfect time to have a full time-off and that you won’t lose much of what you learned the previous school year. In fact, according to a study at the University of Missouri, they found that many students forgot over two and one-half months of whatever their grade-level equivalency is in mathematics.
Year round school is also essential for teachers as well as students. Teachers, and students wont feel burnt out by April or May, making the production of both higher. In the following paragraphs I will tell anyone who reads this that the smartest decision is to be for year round school. (Year-Round schools Look Better All the Time, Pg. 1-2) A traditional school year would have a 180-day school year with short breaks for the holidays followed by a 12-week summer break.
This clearly demonstrates that Jem has reached puberty. Jem’s social behavior and his interactions with his peers also change throughout the book. Scout says, “Jem turns twelve. He was difficult to live with, inconsistent, moody” (Lee 115). In the beginning, Jem gets along well with Scout and other children.

I believe that now is the time to change our educational system as we know it for the benefit of teachers, students and their parents! Our current system allows us to have one long drawn out break and other small inconsistent days off, while a year-round system gives students and teachers frequent days off. These days off are just that, no need to name it an official holiday. A year-round schedule gives the students and faculty a chance to reset and regenerate often. I think when it comes to breaks we can all agree we can all use a long weekend from time to time, lately with all the stresses in the world a frequent break may be need much more often than not!
If kids have year-round school, they probably would keep their grades. Plus, they would also learned good behavior being there so long. They also could be more social instead of being a couch potato all summer long. When kids keep their grades up and has good behavior, teachers get through work being happy and untired. Kids might not be shy anymore.
I had a reason to do my best and she brought that characteristic out of me. Even better than being rewarded for memory was when I learned to have fun while learning. The most prevalent experince of this for me was in my tenth grade year of high school in America. I moved to America and thought I would not fit in with society. However, when I started school I integrated well with the other students and found that many were interested in my Hatian culture.
Cather made the seasons the biggest connection with the life of Burden. The spring brings lovely fruit and life with it. For example "I couldn't feel so tired that I wouldn't fret about these trees when there was a dry time (340). They were on my mind like children" (340). Cather uses Antonia’s life that is steadily growing and changing, to change the way Burden see Antonia.
Squer’ls she’ll tame to come an’ feed right out o’ her hands, and all sorts o’birds” said Mrs. Tilley, Sylvia’s grandmother. She had an admiration for nature. She knew the woods by her home like the back of her hand. She could travel through the darkest woods and still find her way home without a problem. She was also ambitious.
This is a painting that I did using natural dyes from berries and other plants found around Eaton Canyon Park. Ever since I was young, I like being in the wilderness. You are able to hear the sounds that insects make, the flowing water from the river, and smell the aroma from the diverse species of plants. Traveling around Eaton Canyon Park, I gathered a bunch of berries and some other plants. Using them, I created natural dye in order to paint this.
