everybody who passes shouldn’t get the same credit because they didn’t put in any effort. If students knew they didn’t need to try as hard to pass, they would do the bare
I always feel that unless you are learning something from young people then you’re not really working with them. Unfortunately, so many adults do not understand that young people have their are their own culture and discriminate against them accordingly without giving them a real chance to change people’s perceptions this again is one of my aims in working with these disaffected young
Devin Dufrene Essay 4 April 14, 2009 Failure Failure! Some students are afraid of it, Then again some students are given grades and passed anyway. Students should not be given grades and diplomas if they did not learn the necessary information and earn the grade. In this essay I will respond on how I agree with Mary Sherry in “In Praise of the F Word “on how students are hurt later in life First, if student doesn’t learn necessary information in high school he or she will not be able or having a lot off trouble in the after life with college or there new job. In example, if a student gets by in his English class not caring and not trying to learn, but his teacher likes the student so he passed him, when that student goes to college he will have trouble because he doesn’t know how to write a correct essay because he was given the grade.
For instance, Johnny has tried and tried to fit in with the popular kids but they don’t want him part of their group because he is a darker skin color. Johnny accepts that he doesn’t belong with them and finds a group of kids that has the same color as he does. These kids regularly steal other peoples lunches, vandalize school property, and smoke after school. If Johnny were involved in an extracurricular activity, he would be less likely to fall into the foot steps of the bad kids and follow the children who stay out of trouble and have fun. Extracurricular activities supply children with structure, some discipline, and an activity that they enjoy.
Gatto is saying that schooling is made for kids to adapt to; it has adaptive qualities, therefore there is a chance for everyone to succeed if they really want to, but it takes away from any individual thinking. Conforming is another evil of school because it makes us forced to learn things we really have no interest in and as Gatto states “its intention is to make children as alike as possible”(153). A lot of students use this excuse while they are in high school “when am I ever going to use this again in life” ill be honest I have said it before but I don't necessarily agree with these students because you need to build a base education before you figure out what you want your schooling to focus on. Kids change their minds everyday, I realized that I’m not quite sure I want to be an art major anymore, even being in the first couple of classes I knew it wasn’t for me
Therefore In this essay I intend to put across both side of the arguments and then conclude with my own personnel opinion. Some people are against smacking children because the research evidence shown is overwhelming; smacking children is an ineffective way to manage children's behavior and damages their development. We have laws that protect adults from being assaulted by other adults however many people still believe that smacking children is a legal form of discipline. Is this therefore not ironic? As an adult can be protected by violence but a child does not have the same right.
They will be able to understand that not everyone fits in and is ‘popular’ at school, and how some are bullied because of it. But many of the concepts in ‘Cinnamon Rain’ will be foreign to the students, as they aren’t old enough, or have never been in that
Children don’t listen to their school teachers as much as they listen to society. They learn more from watching television and celebrities. If society was serious about education, then the school year would be longer so that children could learn all-year-round and class sizes would be smaller so that teachers could engage with each student more. There is also a salary issue with education. American teachers don’t earn as much money as business professionals and teachers in other countries such as Japan, Canada, and Germany.
This article is based upon different type of fallacies Beres uses to tell his audience that the Common Application process is a waste of many, and doesn’t give the students what they deserve. He uses Appeal to Ignorance when he talks about how those who have a high SAT score and “mommy and daddy credit card isn’t maxed out”. So what if their parents are working hard for this kids? Appeal to Popular Opinion by saying “kids are taking spots at universities that they may, in fact, have little to no interest in.” How can afford to go to a university that will cost at least 30K to graduate just because they don’t like it? He mentions that’s X amount of Y students got accepted into a particular college, but doesn’t talk about how many percentage of Y actually meet the requirements of their “dream”
Think about it, when you were a child, did you understand that without school you would probably end up in a dead-end job? Most children think school is a boring place. The parents send them and they would so much rather be home playing video games and hanging out with their friends. They do not know that schooling is much needed, and without parents to force them to go or to explain to them why to go, many children would be doomed to drop out and never
