Being the first person in my family to get a college degree makes me feel so good. Setting example for children and letting them see that mommy can do it is priceless. The things that we do in life as far as school wise are thing we can take us to the next level is just a lot of us lose hope we are not sure where to go. I though getting a high school diploma was fine for me. I felt school was not for me because I have dyslexic and, I feel people just don’t want to help me.
Giovanny Sanchez May 5, 2012 Ms. Collins Barbie’s World In everyone’s childhood there is always that one special non-living figure in their personal lives, a figure we admired, something we looked up to be, like an idol. In “You Can Never Have Too Many,” Jane Smiley thanks Barbie for the effect she had on her daughter’s lives as they were growing up to be young adults; by teaching them the feminine side of woman at an early stage, which ultimately allowed their minds to have a lot more options when it really came down to figuring out who they wanted to be at an adult stage. Smiley however, does not effectively support this argument because she gives a lot of credit to Barbie for the way her daughters turn out to be but she’s forgetting
It was her mistake, so she is going to take on her responsibility, and be a great parent for her unborn child. She said, “If it was my choice i would have got pregnant after college” (Duval). Luckily, her boyfriend, her family and friends were unexpectedly supportive of this major change in Harley’s life. Everyone preached to Harley about how tough it would be with having a baby, she didn’t think anything of it. The only worry in their minds was Harley and her junior year of high school; hoping and expecting she would finish
It was worth every question and worksheet to where I am now. I have had a great year and was faced with many challenges but all in all I did a pretty good job and improved all my English skills hugely. I’ve always been a good reader through school but even my reading skills improved this year. We read a selection of great books that have helped me understand big concepts. I felt that Night by Elsie Wesile and Anthem by Alice Hoffman should be taught next year because they were the most interesting and had the most impact on me as the reader.
Instead, it was full of warmth and positive energy. Previously, I had lacked friends not because I couldn't speak English, but because I had built wall around myself with my negative energy and focus on what I could not do. Now, I’m finishing my high school years with being one of the top student in my school. I am ready to face the challenges that await me at
“No one knows what he can do until he tries” One of the most valuable life lessons in “No one knows what he can do until he tries.” When it came to school, I never tried my hardest. Whenever I didn’t understand something, I would become discouraged and give up. My absence of effort showed in my grades. However, in high school, I began to learn that if you truly give something your all, you can succeed. I always received good grades in elementary school.
SOL WRITING PROMPT PRACTICE Students should not be required to volunteer in their communities in order to receive their high school diplomas. This is because community service is not academic, volunteering is something that a person does if they want to help, not because they’re being forced to, and while some may say that community service looks good on resumes, if everyone does it then it’s not special anymore. Volunteering to do community service is a beneficial activity for the volunteer and the community, but making it mandatory to graduate defeats the purpose. High school diplomas are received based on a student’s academic credits and scores. Or at least they should be, because students go to high school in order to get an education and learn and improve their academic knowledge.
The research has been done on zero tolerance in the home but not extensively in the school. Based on the results of the research finding on zero tolerance in the home in regards to parenting the approach conflicts with the developmental needs of adolescences. This approached mirrored what was taking place in the Breakfast Club. The group leader/principal had no desire to truly hear what the teen had to say in response to his assignment. He only wanted them do as he said without feedback.
The reason that students should not have to take the exit exam to graduate from high school is because standardized tests only evaluate certain subjects, tests do not truly reflect what the person has learned, and tests do not do anything to prepare kids for the future. Is it important to require a minimum standard for all kids to achieve before graduating from high school? Proponents of the exam feel that it is. They feel that if students know they will be
I had got suspend almost the whole year. I stay talking backing to the teachers and did not care what they told me. I stayed in the 8th grade principle office. Coming to Murrah has changed me, I new that I could not come here and act a fool in high school. I know I can get out of control sometimes but I can do better then what I be doing.
