So this will onhly be effective if you are able to do it in the first place. Like say exercise is considered a good stress relief but lets be honest the thought of that might be a the cause of more stress to most right thinking peeps. Effective mangaging of staff and job roles. This should of without saying but its most often not the case.

A handful of students mouthed off about how their junior English teacher, Mrs. Thornton, hardly ever gave out hard assignments. As class went on Mandrell was pelted with more and more complaints about how her class was stressing the students to a level where they could not really focus on their assignments. All the class came together in unison and agreed that she was assigning them too much work. After some serious thought Mandrell concluded that maybe a change in the way the class was taught would release some of the stress put on the students and take away the worries of focusing on grades (380). After Mandrell was burdened with the complaints of her class, she went home to meditate on the day’s new found conclusion: the students thought her class was a nightmare.

Diverse is just a word that schools throw out to make their school look better and welcoming to every race. Students in extremely segregated areas feel that they are thrown into any building, no matter what the conditions are of that building, and it is considered a school. Many believe they are not given the adequate learning environment that they deserve. Schools that cater to predominately white children are not in such poor conditions. They have better learning facilities.
Especially with him being the new kid at an all-white school he really starts to believe that his ethnicity has something to do with the way he is because all the white kids around him are better off than he is. I also feel like many times we try and blame our situation solely on our race, gender or ethnicity because it is more of a natural and comfortable thing to do. It’s easier for people of color to say “I’m poor because I'm an Indian” than to say “I'm poor because my mom doesn’t have a job”. Saying you’re in a certain situation because of what your
Bill Nye says that most students are distracted by the opposite sex because they are worried about looking good and making a good first impression on the opposite sex. This could be right for two students out of every twenty but then those students are also not doing what they wanted to be doing at college; getting a good education so they can get a better job. The fact that only a very few students are distracted by the opposite sex doesn’t mean that Baldwin Wallace should make a significant change for the rest of the student
Jennifer English 27 February 2013 The Blue Eye Experiment The Concept of the blue eye experiment is to get the point across that everyone is the same. No one should be treated differently because of his or her race, age, religion etc. By getting treated differently the persons self esteem is getting lower making them perform tasks in which they are more pronate to fail at. In the video “A class divided” the teacher named Jane Elliot told the kids in the class that the blue-eyed kids were better. Blue-eyed kids were smarter, could take 2nds for lunch, could drink out of the fountain and couldn’t be with their brown-eyed friends.
Younger children believe that cheating is wrong but that it is acceptable in some instances. In elementary school children break or bend the rules to win games against their peers. But as they get older- around junior high- they begin cheating on academic work. “Cheating peeks in high school when about 75%of students admit to some kind of academic misgivings”. In schools cheating has become so socially acceptable that students think that it is okay to cheat.
Of the Coming of John Summary In "Of the Coming of John", DuBois tells the experience of a white man and a black man who had both decided to pursue educations. The black John is very obedient, and when his mother wanted to send him to school, people said it would ruin him.

The black John had many difficulties in school.
From 8:10 to 9 in the morning everything about the day was different. Mr. Cohen walked into class with a quiet sort of passion. He is in his early thirties, and was always dressed casually, usually with jeans and a button down shirt with his sleeves rolled up. He had wavy black hair brushed back and thin glasses on the top of his nose. He was the kind of teacher that never made you feel guilty about missing an assignment, but something about the way he asked for it made you feel guilty for not doing it - not because it was a loss in points for your grade, but because you felt like you’d let down your teacher.
