It seems that when everything from grocery stores to banks, to even hospitals has small differences to them, but the schools stay the same. No wonder why students feel so un-amused when they enter school. Young people in this day and age are all about technology and the social network. If schools we’re
It's a pretty common discussion among just about everybody, mostly teenagers. Although most teenagers are going to be against the idea because they haven’t drove yet and are anxious, most adults would like to see different actions taken on young drivers. Should the legal driving age be raised to 18? The main reason most people think the age should be raised is that it would reduce automobile accidents and fatalities. Accidents are caused by multi-tasking, Teens are easily distracted while driving by cell phones, the radio or even something simple as a friend talking to you.
Positive ads such as “friends don’t let friends drive drunk” and the NAACP slogan “a mind is a terrible thing to waste” will help raise the conscience level of young people and make them think more about how their actions affect other people. Making advertisements such as this government promoted and allowing them to air during the peak viewing hours of television will expose them to a large group of the target population. Since the emergence of facebook, youtube, blogging, vloging etc children have been exposed to more than they have ever been in the past. The big powerhouse sites such as
Technology is a really over-powering thing and a growing epidemic and I feel that it's really taking a tole on young people but at the same time advancing the communication between us. To know that teens are using their phones on average 60 times a day is quiete saddening because there are so many other things you can be doing, such as doing home work, studying and spending time with family.
Since so much of what we use in everyday life involves technology, it is only fair to introduce our youth to it and get them accustomed to using it frequently. People never send handwritten letters anymore, that’s partially why companies like the USPS was considering reducing the amount of days they deliver. Majority of people are using email, social networking and phones to communicate. Not only is it easier, but more efficient and allows us complete more tasks since “everything is happening much faster, and more things are happening” (Source C). Not only will it help students in the future, it’ll also make learning more compelling, after all students do prefer “glitz and pictures” and “video and stylish packaging” (Source E).
Schools have become more of a contest then a learning environment. One of the most increasing effects of peer pressure is drug use. Teens learn more at this age than any other time in their life. This is because at a younger age, there is that constant state or curiosity. Peers talk about their drug experiences as being "cool" and if you havent experinced it yourself many feel out side of the circle.
On the negative side it can insulate bad behaviour and attitude among the youth. Children should be encouraged to choose music videos th at are beneficial to them. The majority of music videos fans are teenagers and young adults, who are in an impressionable period of their lives. This can also turn into anti-social behaviour Music videos have been around for years from different culture. There has been a massive change in the music industry.
Should high school students be forced to do homework? Why or why not. Homework, homework, homework, that is what we students always complain when we get home from school. “What other activities can we do at home when there is a pile of homework on my study table?” was the complains heard frequently by the education ministry. But, can students get to achieve in what they want to achieve without homework?
Gus Bolen Edgar Temam Writing 121 October 31, 2011 T.V: A Crisis for Our Youth Television is a powerful medium for appealing to mass audiences- it reaches people regardless of age, sex, income, or educational level. In addition, television offers sight and sound, and it makes dramatic and lifelike representations of people and products. Focused TV coverage of advertisements has been largely limited to fast food and other things to entice the younger audience into watching their show. However, too much T.V. for our younger generation is bad for their learning habits because it distracts children from homework for school.
Entrepreneurs can now advertise to the whole world easier then ever before. However, the competition among companies to create a memorable, desirable advertisement is also negatively influencing our population’s youth. Because of the substantial increase of advertisements during recent years, children have become exposed to both the mature world and the consumer market at increasingly earlier, even infant ages. “The increase [in advertisements] comes from advertisers trying to out-yell each other”, says J. Walker Smith, president of the consulting firm Yankelovich. If a marketer feels drowned out, "They just turn up the volume."
