These traditional methods are basic and can be uninteresting to most students. If students are already struggling with vocabulary they may not stay on task and waste time during these periods. Another outdated process used to teach vocabulary is assigning students to get words from dictionaries and give definitions, parts of speech, synonyms, and antonym (Sargent, 2013). According to Sargent, looking up words or committing definitions to memory leads at best to an artificial understanding and rapid forgetting of words (2013). With this learning strategy students may look up definition, write it down, and discuss with teacher but will most likely forget it.
My English is so poor; I want to improve my English. First time, I avoided classes that involved a lot of writing, as I was still intimidated by past failures. But when poor writing began to affect my grades in other courses, I decided to take a composition class. Now, I use my On Course textbook in my English class, this journal will help me about self-awareness. I began to see how negative scripts could cause problems.
I finally felt like a normal child once I knew how to read and could keep up with the class. Reading will most likely be the thing that has had a huge impact on my everyday life. In the past when I was little I didn’t think reading was very important for my life, and I also didn’t like to read. In second grade my family and I discovered that I have mild dyslexia. It was very hard to deal with in school because I got confused very easily in anything that had to do with reading or writing.
If we paid for students when they get good grads may be this habit will stick with them for life. They always will try, if they got the choice of course, to pick the easiest course in which the high grades is granted instead of picking the courses they really like or they really need with their majority. Instead of seeing the value behind doing the hard work to finish their study and going to the college to graduate and helping people they will be worry about what they will get for doing anything good .They always will worry about what they get and how much cash they will get if they did anything good. The young students of today are the future doctors and engineers or even business leaders of tomorrow and they already learned that it is always about money. They won’t help people who need them if these people don’t have money.

Copying another student’s homework is also considered cheating. This is another example of how students don’t bother studying when they have the easy way of copying somebody else’s work and finishing as quickly as possible. This shows that the student is simply lazy as they choose not to study and take the shortcut to success. The most common reason for students
Some academics come naturally to students and if they are outnumbered by those that don’t comprehend the lesson, then they may receive a poor grade. In the same manner if a student is outnumbered by intellectual student then they would receive a grade they did not earn. I have seen a few children in the classroom who can read really well and it would not be fair to those few students if they received a low grade because the majority of the class does not know how to read well yet. Another downside to group grading is that sometimes you find that some people work harder than others. In college as well as in kindergarten you find students that put forth no effort, when this happens you have students who are going to have to work harder to pick up the slack.
Disappointed as I was I realized its not always the subject as much as it is your form and process that gets the grade I learned to pay more attention to my technique and process. When writing an essay or paper I tend to get nervous, scared and even intimidated. I often question if I’m using correct grammar, punctuations and form.
