The future needs to be thought about while changes and problems are being addressed. The school board and the people within the school systems need to have more caring feelings about those students who are being left behind.
My understanding and experience of music has helped me excel in more than one particular subject field. Majority of those who study the arts often major in a field completely opposite, but the skills gained from their passed experience exceed of those who are completely foreign to music.

Over the decades there has been an ongoing debate to change the United States education system in guiding students on a superior future. With the establishment of the No Child Left Behind Act, the importance to score higher on the standardized test has resulted in making budget cut to have more academic courses. When the current U.S. administration made budget cut decisions, the first thing to go is the art, music, and theater classes. The school administration does not realize that the arts are the aspect in people's lives and improves students mentality. A student that is involved in the arts are at low at risk to develop a mental disorder or helps release their frustration in a positive creative way.
These are friendships that I may expect to maintain for a lifetime. I have talked a lot about what music education means to me, but there is proof that being musically inclined can help academic performance. As an example, since I have been in high school, either the valedictorian or the salutatorian has been involved in a music program. And if you look at the list of students who have been in the top 10% of their classes, you’ll find most have been involved in one music program or another. Music education isn’t just for friendships and relationships.
As stated above many of the rhetoric tools that we use today was also used back in Socrates time. Those fundamental tools being Pathos, Ethos, and Logos and they were used on how to form a good argument. While the connection between a communicator, the speaker, and his audience has changed overtime by use of different media, going from oral arguments to more written arguments, the one thing that hasn’t changed is the basic skills of communication and how it is used to persuade
It was well written and executed its plan of being informative. It can also be used as a guide to therapist looking to accomplish this goal. It is evident throughout the article that I would have to read other articles, papers, and/or books to go deeper into what research has been done on this topic and the actual results.

While reading this article it became clear to me that I definitely want to continue with my dream of being a Psychologist and will like to learn more about these techniques in order to use them in my practice.
Okay, perhaps this creativity thing isn’t such a “radically” new approach to teaching or engaging our students, and it probably won’t “revolutionize” the way most of us approach our classrooms. It is, however, an approach that I fear is too often avoided or minimized in many traditional classroom settings. One fact, though, simply cannot be overstated. Today’s classrooms are some of the most diverse and challenging learning environments that higher education has known. Greater numbers of students are entering college than ever before, bringing with them an array of learning styles and backgrounds that may or may not respond well to the traditional lecture on which many of us cut our academic teeth.
For example, in speech class, I am accompanied by different classmates that I have not worked with before and gather as a group to share ideas with a common purpose. When problems occur, I am willing to hear everyone’s opinions and thoughts before making an official decision in a tough situation. This shows how I can adapt with others to achieve more than what I could’ve with myself with creative objectives. Also, I always put others before myself. This signifies how I care for others, whether a friend is facing a challenge in their life or volunteering when the community is needing help, I will be the one to be there to help out.
11) noted that negative music experiences in school have left many primary teachers “with little or no musical self when considered in a teaching context”. But when it comes to teachers - and music specialists in particular who have few formative primary music experiences to draw from - Drummond (2001) suggested that this lack of experience negatively influences how they view and teach the subject professionally: highly-trained teachers of music were shown to be teaching their music lessons with uncertainty. However, Koutsoupidou’s (2005) quantitative study about musical improvisation in English primary classrooms found that 81% of teachers in the study uses improvisation in the classroom yet only 19% experienced improvisation themselves as pupils at school. Although, the same study found that teachers avoid using improvisation due to their lack of personal experience (77%) and their lack of familiarity with improvisation
Elementary Vs. High School Do you remember the “good ol’ days” when school was all fun and games? Remember how school was a walk through the park, but then work got harder and harder, than boom, your into high school and everything changes. Attitude changes, seriousness changes and everyone changes. Elementary school is obviously easier than high school, but it also depends on your attitude towards school, but there are many differences between grade levels. When we are little kids, we can’t really take anything seriously, we’re just really curious, and that helps us want to search for answers to all our questions.
