They also do this becuase they realize the importance of an education, unlike the normal (popular) kids, who don't seem to grasp the concept of 'education = moola, Benjimans, dough, money.' And why do I say this? It is elementry my dear Watson, it is because normal kids always seem to act out of line in some way or form, ignoring the most important thing in their life. Classroom behavior also carries the responsibility of making sure that all work is completed. No one wants a bad grade to show to the colleges... or do they?
As in, do students prefer working independently or do they expect heavy assistance from parents or teachers to accomplish the smallest tasks? This could be a huge aspect on why/how you can fail ninth grade and know nothing, you got taught by any of your teachers. Some students prefer to work independently, which there is nothing wrong with that because I, myself, love to work independently on anything to deal with school- homework, projects, and and school work. On the other hand, there are some students that don't work independently and don't work with others. These types of people will usually fail because if you're not working by yourself or not working with a team, then who are you working with?
Should standardized tests have such a vital role in the schooling systems today? Testing should not hold such importance because it causes stress, low self esteem, causes students to give up, and does not truly show the intelligence of students. Self esteem is already a problem that most students face especially during teenage years and above. Self esteem can be causes by trying to live up to unrealistic standards and creating an immense amount of pressure on oneself to do well (Self Esteem 1). When students feel the pressure to be perfect from parents, teachers, or peers it causes them to somewhat shut down and not perform well.
One of the arguments of co-education is the idea that it provides too many distractions for students. Several scholars have argued that these distractions have led to less attention on school work and class participation, due to girls and boys trying to impress each other. Furthermore, it has also been argued that students who are intimidated by the opposite sex may also be affected by low performance and low grades. Many educators believe that single-sex education does not enforce any type of gender-based stereotypes or adolescent subculture. Due to this, single-sex schools have been established to combat these issues.
I’m blaming all of us as a whole because we have done this to ourselves and we just watched and let it happen. If “kids have convinced parents that it is the teacher or the system that is the problem, not their own lack of effort” (paragraph 10), where is the change in school administration rules to make the teachers, well, better teachers? Not only are we missing higher standards for our students, but also higher standards for teachers the district employs. If a teacher is unable to teach properly, how will the students ever learn correctly? It is almost as easy as a simple
Welsh’s article discusses the difference between American students and Asian students. The Asian students identified that their biggest factor behind academic success was “studying hard”. I believe that many American students have lost their internal drive and motivation to study hard, including myself, with technology now and it being so easy to cheat it becomes almost unnecessary. Insufficient teaching is not the major factor to blame nor is poor study skills or the lack of there of. I believe that the problem behind American students not studying is solely due to the lack of determination to study and excel in schoolwork.
The Method of Education Have you ever wondered why most students hate school? There is something about school that they really dislike and they have no motivation to go to school besides the law and their parents forcing them. It could be the fact that a traditional academic environment just isn’t suitable for optimal learning. Today’s method of education has acquired many critics throughout the years including the authors of the book Ways of Reading, David Bartholomae and Anthony Petrosky and the writer of the essay, “The Loss of the Creature,” Walker Percy. I support the authors’ beliefs in that a traditional method of achieving an education is not suited for optimal learning and students should learn with different methods in order to acquire the education they deserve.
Most of students were like other students, say that they were good enough and smart enough but the truth is that they’re lie. The more you had been distracted by the more unsuccessful you are. Student should focus more and should not commute to campus. Why this is important to me: This is important because when you commute to campus and did not focusing on your education, you lost your experiences of learning. I have been through this kind of problems and yes it does very distracted.
Taking the example of student life, I am convinced to say that the students are always underrated by their teachers. They never get the marks as they expect. But this thing proves better for the student. Firstly the student learns how to deal with such situations in everyday life as it is the human nature to underestimate others. Secondly, he or she endeavors to score more in the next examination and ultimately in the final evaluation tests and then, throughout his or her career such students prove to be the best.
If a person feels bored, it is because he or she needs to make it an obligation to amuse his or herself. Every person is at fault when it comes to American schooling being boring. Not only is it up to the teacher to make the class interesting, the students need to participate and show interest. Interestingly, the three main reasons it is important for schools to be around are: to make good people, to make good citizens, and to make each person his or her personal best. It is interesting because it is nowhere near
