Class discussion could be based on a consideration of the characters and the different ways they deal with bullying. The bullying is done for no understandable reason, as the author shows. What would be other ways to combat bullying? • Teamwork is demonstrated in the novel in the boys’ efforts to present a united front for their debating team. Perhaps a formal debate with four speakers against and four speakers for the affirmative could be arranged to discuss such questions as: ‘That unchecked bullying in schools leads to world conflict’; ‘That intelligence always overcomes brute force.’ • Students could emulate Prue Leseur’s peg people and create their own versions of world leaders, or famous actors or musicians, and present them in class, describing why they chose the person, and their
They stress day and night over these overrated tests, like previously stated channeling out the imagination, curiosity and good will. Besides being an imprecise measure for students, they use them to judge a teacher’s performance as well, essentially used to either reward or punish them. Standardized test are not helping us very much right now. In conclusion, the usage of standardized tests should be discontinued or by the very least lessened. These tests are not helping people, it’s initially having a negative effect on students and teachers.
But is this right, should parents even, principals just blow bullying off like that? Maybe we've seen a bigger kid shoving a smaller kid around, or a girl with less money shunned because her clothes aren't nice enough or she doesn't live in the right neighborhood. Both situations involve bullying, and it's a serious problem in elementary and middle schools nationwide. Too often, we don't take bullying seriously. Young people who are bullied are more likely to skip school or completely drop out.
In the passage from “America Needs Its Nerds” the speaker, Leonid Fridman, argues about how students who study a lot and socialize less are rejected by their society; “Nerds are ostracized while athletes are idolized”. He gives examples of how nerds are treated in a bad manner and how they can’t be honest about how much they actually study because they will be made fun of. He emphasizes that that must stop happening by the use of logical and emotional appeals. Throughout the passage, Fridman uses reason to develop his argument by the use of various examples of how nerds are compared to people who bite off the heads of live chickens. He mentions how students, especially in America, who prefer to read books and study rather than going to parties, become social outcasts.

This type of stereotype is similar to that of the “dumb jock”, and like the students in the experiment college athletes are often portrayed as inferior academically (Lubus, 2011). These stereotypes cause the students to feel inferior because of the self-fulfilling prophecy, and the students adopt these attributes and behaviors because that is how their environment makes them feel. This study shows how our society can easily use stereotypes and prejudice to create an environment where they become the reality. The self-fulfilling prophecy uses the expectations of these stereotypes to create that environment, and this will affect a person’s own behaviors and self-impressions. I believe this creates a false sense of the stereotypes playing true, and that in actuality the people classified in the stereotype may be nothing like
Like if a bully told you “your shirt is ugly, only old people wear that”, then obviously they are trying to help you not dress like your great grandma at school. As you can see, bullies were really put on this earth to point out your problems so that you can improve on them and become a cool kid; because if you are not cool then you’re obviously going to get bullied.

In schools cheating has become so socially acceptable that students think that it is okay to cheat. Schools lack a strong moral code that makes the student’s feel that they need to abide by it. With more people doing it, more people think it might be justified to cheat because others are doing it. Students “cheat because they see others who cheat and they think that they will be unfairly disadvantaged. The cheaters are getting 100 on the exam, while non-cheaters may only get 90’s”.
