Some students get so worked up about the test they can’t even get through it (par.3). Even though the article “Standardized Tests” states that “testing is a normal and expected way of assessing what students have learned and the vast majority of students do not exhibit stress and have positive attitudes towards taking a standardized test like the FCAT,” (par.10). J. Lang Wood, author of many short stories and author of“Negative Effects of the FCAT” begs to differ. According to Lang Wood she claims students are exposed to a “climate of continuous stress” (par. 2).
Dear: National Junior Honor Society Committee I currently represent the “Character” Trait of NJHS by being honest to others and very workable with my fellow peers. Many people rely on me as a very good person to come to in a great time of need. I deeply care for my family and other people. I also listen to others ideas to help improve their idea or to help make it a reality. I will use all of these characteristics to help this organization reach out to people in need.
I also took drawing my sophomore year and I got straight A’s in the class. My junior year I took photography because I was always obsessed with taking picture of everything. I was voted top photographer of my class of 30. Now at my senior year I am taking crafts and it kept me
Drug testing of high school athletes has a negative impact on the classrooms, it punishes innocent students, and it can sometimes be completely useless when students know how to outsmart the test. Therefore in summary, drug testing penalizes student athletes more than it helps them. Drug testing of high school athletes has a
It has helped me learn new cultures and traditions, be more understanding and humble with life and its situations, and playing sports. This is what defined me growing up in Heights. First off, culture is very powerful. It determines many things about you such as what you eat, how you speak, what your beliefs you believe in, what clothing you wear, etc. It is the invisible bond that ties different people together.
The welding instructor helped me thru my struggles. I went home and practiced as much as I could to help me out even more. After awhile I got the hang of it. I’ve had this class for three years now and I’ve loved every minute of it. I have three certifications in that class and those will help me find a good paying job because that’s what employer’s look for and it sets me apart from other applicants.
Mindsets In the nonfictional book, “Mindset” written by Carol S. Dweck, she mentions that students get fixed mindsets. There are many ways to cause a student to have one because students may tend to take what parents, teachers, etc… say seriously. She also says that most students get their mindsets from the transaction to a junior high. Students with a fixed mindset will always have bad grades, and the fact that they will always try to blame someone else. A student’s mindset comes from negative labeling from parents or teachers, or stereotypes based on race and class.
My self-interest for this project is to just go out help people and put smile on people face. I’m family social science major and I love helping working with people I think that’s one of my strengths. On top of that I being a division one athlete sometimes seen can be seen as a big deal to the society so I want to go out there and be a role model for these kids. Most children with a disability generally get immense pleasure from very simple things and love to please everyone. They want to do everything’s that other children do in their daily life and want to have every opportunity that other kids had, however most of the time they don’t get enough services and opportunities to do what they want to do as same as regular kids.
I’m blaming all of us as a whole because we have done this to ourselves and we just watched and let it happen. If “kids have convinced parents that it is the teacher or the system that is the problem, not their own lack of effort” (paragraph 10), where is the change in school administration rules to make the teachers, well, better teachers? Not only are we missing higher standards for our students, but also higher standards for teachers the district employs. If a teacher is unable to teach properly, how will the students ever learn correctly? It is almost as easy as a simple
I treat everyone equally and try my best to include everyone in activities. I enjoy helping others and setting a good example to other students. I like to try my best at anything and everything I do. I’m a polite and respectful student both to teachers and students. I like contributing to the school in any way possible.
