I believe that you cannot force kids into learning and even doing so, they will have a harder time attending classes than before. It’s a distraction to the teachers and their fellow peers, making harder for kids who would want to be there, seems like a 4 year prison. Again, keeping these kids who would rather be goofing off and making trouble does not help them one bit. A better solution is to provide an alternative way to receive their well-deserved education, not getting stuck in some traditional high school they cannot do well
I'd rather get a failing grade that I earned, than a “no-zero” because of a policy. The policy basically is telling students that if they don't hand in assignments or do poorly on a test they won't get a zero, which isn't right. If schools are being too lenient on students it won't teach them how to work hard and discipline that they'll need in the future. I agree that school should “suck” because it'll be beneficial in the end to students and will help them become a well rounded individual. We all complain about how much school sucks, but there are so many kids in the world who would do anything for an
“People who did well in high school have trouble transitioning sometimes. They work hard and they still feel stupid,” said Alex Corhan, a sophomore journalism major at Boston University. There is no formal grading policy at Boston University but the university does give several guidelines for professors to follow. “Don’t be a grade-inflater! Grades should reflect the distribution of effort and success in the class … If your distribution of grades is skewed toward the high end, it might imply that either an 'A' does not require a high level of achievement in the course or
But when they get downstairs all ready to go, their parents tell them about how they need them to do better in school so that later on in life they can go to college and have a real job. This can be good, because it teaches their kids to succeed at everything they do, but it can also be hard on our children to tell them things like this. Everyone will always eventually fail and something, and when they do it will not feel good, but also having the feeling that they have let down their parents, that’s worse. When children think that their parents will now hate them because they did not pass a test, or do that well in their football game, they get depressed. They think that they are worthless and can’t do anything right.
Receiving a high school diploma may not always mean hard work and dedication on behave of the student who receives it. Sherry states, “Tens of thousands of 18-year-olds will graduate this year and be handed meaningless diplomas. These diplomas won’t look any different from those awarded their luckier classmates.” Students who do not wish to devote time and effort into to their high education can simply just do enough work to get by and others may even choose to not try at all and yet still manage to graduate. Students will stop with these choices once they become aware that flunking will be their fate if they do not change their habits very quickly. They will feel the pressure and possibility of not graduating, which will have a great impact on them.
I’m realizing it now one month before I am able to graduate. My actions were influenced by my teacher letting me pass with the bare minimum on essay. My high school English teacher was not effectively teaching me the necessary skills to pass my senior year. I disappointed in that I put myself in this situation but I did not anyone know because I wanted to make pass English without anyone helps. The rest of the day I started to think what happened in past year that affected my chance going to
Full name : Nguyen Thanh Hang Class : 53NKN Response In their article “Coping with Procrastination” , Rebecca Moore Barbara Baker and Arnold Packer write “Often procrastination stems from a real or imagined fear or worry that is focus on not so much on the things you are avoiding but its potential consequences” . In the other words, because of their fear, whether it’s real or not , people postpone their works as they think they can’t do it well. I think the cause of procrastination is fear. In my first year in university, I ought to study English and it became my biggest fear. The fear that I would not be able to complete the task - or do it well enough, my task may attract criticisms or it may turn out not to have been necessary after all and I've spent hours of misery on it.
While ideas supporting social promotion may be valid, in the end it is not beneficial to students throughout their school careers or later on in their lives. This has been an ongoing issue for a few decades, and is still a topic of controversy. Social promotion should not be an option to students of all grades because it prevents them from being well educated, keeps students behind in their future, can be avoided by schools with a few enhancements. Promoting students to the next grade who have failed or are not ready to move up leaves the student without knowledge. When a student fails a class or grade, they also have failed learning the material that is repeatedly said to us by administrators is “important”.
I assume there are a few students who would rather go this route, but most would hate it. I do believe we should tailor the school curriculum towards what the majority of students want. I also believe a 12 month school year is bad for teachers as well. Teachers would have the same problems as students. Teachers would not have to make alot more work for all the students with a longer school year.
Discuss some positive and some negative aspects of Mr. Scott’s way of dealing with tardiness in the preceding case history. When reading what Mr. Scott wanted to do for his class, my first response was that’s not fair at all, not allowing Susan to participate in the discussion seemed unfair to her and her development as a student. It may send her the wrong message that being too smart is not good practice to keep. “Susan is an “A” student and according to Mr. Scott she tends to do dominate the classroom exchanges” (Borich. 2011).
