My ninth grade was pretty cool until the last week of school I let my mouth get the best of me and said some things that I really should’ve not said and because I did I earned the next semester at the alternative school. When school started back I was very sad because I had to go to the “bad” school with all the “bad” kids and I was very nervous. Once I got there it was pretty cool and I really enjoyed it because the classes were smaller and you got more one on one help. My grades went up and my mom decided that I should spend the rest of the year there, which really messed me up because they did not offer any elective classes only the basics . My eleventh grade year was also a disaster because of the struggle of passing my biology state test and I was really distracted and just wanted to go back to the alternative school but my mom and the principle would not send me back.
He graduated from junior high at the top of his class. However, when a favorite teacher told Malcolm his dream of becoming a lawyer was "no realistic goal for a nigger," Malcolm lost interest in school. With his teacher successfully putting an end to his dreams of a rightful career, Malcolm decided to forgo the continuance of education and began his criminal ways that ultimately resulted in his incarceration. If Malcolm X was alive today it would have been easier for him to teach himself to read and write with all the advancements in technology. TV and images from magazines and newspapers may be more inspiration to learn than just Bimbi’s ability to converse with a high level of intellect.
He lost the ability of hearing in the war. My first impression of him thought that he is only one the disable students on campus. I can feel he is so shy, fear and low self-esteem around the class because I saw him, he is setting at the corner with his deaf interpreter. I thought his low self-esteem is only coming from his disabilities, but I never anticipated that he is one of the return solider. Then, in the first day of the chemistry laboratory, we need to choose the group to do all the experiment together for the whole semester.
However, when Jamal had to turn in an assignment for a competition at school, he couldn’t resist the temptation. The first paragraph of his essay was written by Forrester. Little did Jamal know, Forrester’s borrowed first paragraph had already been published. Jamal’s teacher, Crawford, was already upset with Jamal for being such an excellent writer. When he caught him plagiarizing, it was to Jamal’s demise.
Discretionary justice can be defined as a measure of leniency considering the background and the records of the victim before deciding their punishments. In the essay, Gladwell talks about how a young American physicist almost poisoned his tutor because he was mindlessly doing experiments due to his family problems. He was forced to work in the lab, and thus making mistake is understandable considering that he was young. Besides, utilizing discretionary justice can provide more options on the punishments. Instead of sending the young physicist to the police, set him on probation which will not damage his reputation as a scientist.
In the fall of 2006, I started my first year of college at the University of Illinois at Springfield. Within my first few weeks there I hated it; not because I was homesick, but because the work was too hard. The social life was great but behind closed doors I struggled with bio-chemistry and my professor was not making it easy, especially since he failed all 6 African American students in the class. Once that happened I decided to have a conference with him to see where I went wrong. He responded by saying, “I was never fond of black people, and helping you was is the question”.
In “Nothing But the Truth” by Avi, one kid named Philip Malloy makes a huge impact on society. In my opinion, I think that this was all garbage, but once the media gets into something, anything can happen. It all started when Philip, a 9th grade student at Harrison High school got a “D” in English. He states that it is his teacher’s fault, but he is really the one misbehaving and writing jokes as answers in his exams. Philip, now not allowed to tryout for the track team is angry and ticked off.
The beginning of Blaise’s education in Paris was geared toward languages, especially Latin and Greek. Even so, Etienne's plan backfired: The fact that mathematics was a forbidden topic made the subject even more interesting to the inquisitive boy, who at the age of 12 began exploring geometry on his own. He even made up his own terminology, not having learned the official terms. The prodigy quickly managed to work out that the sum of a triangle's angles are equal to two right angles. Etienne was impressed.
For instance, Mr. Alexander was so thrilled a students’ newfound understanding of a problem that with a burst of excitement he punched his fist through his classroom window. His undying passion for math persuaded me to create the same amount of passion for it also―with less pain, but as time has passed this passion has faded along with my math smarts. “Courtney, I wish I could marry your brain!” was a declaration spoken from the mouth of a genius of a math teacher, Mr. Alexander, that came charging back into my memory in the third quarter of my AP Geometry class as I sat dumbfounded by the lack of knowledge I was apprehending from my then teacher, Mrs. Shackelford. By this time math had become my worst enemy and I hated it with a passion. Sorry about the negative diction I am professing towards math, but the truth is that I lost my love for it year’s ago―with the help of horrible instructors.
