How can you judge and trust a person's character just by their status? As we grow up, we are taught not to fight violence with violence, because it only leads to more harm and doesn't solve the problem in any way. If a student harms someone, why should the teacher hurt or maybe even kill the student? This teaches people the wrong values. You may be thinking that teachers are unable to stand up to students or outside threats under current school conditions, but that doesn't mean we have to take these extreme measures.
The problem in the school structure that Graff recognizes is lack of persuasion to get students to argue. This holds true in my personal experiences in academics. Despite the fact the educating administration is trying to avoid violent disputes because of arguments, they fail to see that properly structured arguments are the best way to avoid violence. Without the school system instilling the ideas and values of argument, students will lack an outlet for an argument consisting of words and are more likely to resort to violence for resolution. In a section of Gerald’s essay he advocates that educated conversation be shared with uneducated audiences as a basis for understanding any scholarly topic as well as a basis for a strong argument.
Gatto’s long, and successful, career within the American education system serves as more than enough evidence to confirm the credibility and accuracy of his opinions. His career is another indicator of his love for educating young people. Gatto doesn’t believe in forcing students to learn on a strict schedule (i.e: six classes a day, five days a week, nine months a year, for 12 years). He bonds boredom, a common condition possessed by not only students but teachers as well, to schools in the U.S school system. Many of his students said they weren’t interested in what was being taught because it was stupid and they already knew the material.
The Breakfast Club approached people by toss out unique stereotypes of each of fives characters in the movie. Each of them comes up from different classes in high school social system and characterizes one another by their appearances. As the movie
CRN:23166 Going to high school is an experience, because walking into any high school for most teenagers is like walking into another world. In one’s opinion high school could be considered a metaphor for the real world because school is a subculture in itself. The text book attests that, “While in school, young people acquire identities and learn patterns of behavior…exposed to a hierarchical, bureaucratic environment...[and schools] emphasize conformity to societal needs...” (Margaret L. Anderson, 2008). Choosing The Breakfast Club to analyze social inequality seemed like a perfect example to write about. The movie explores the relationship amongst high school students who are socially separated, are forced together and find that they had more in common than they initially thought.
Of course not, all people know that fighting can’t solve anything, and sometimes it would make the problem worse. Spanking the children is not okay because it would make the child has bad memories and spanking can’t solve problems. Spanking will make the children have bad memories. Even they grow up and become the one who doesn’t needs their parent spanking anymore, a good kids, he still remember how their parents hit them, and how it hurt.
This paper is a psychological analysis of five distinct adolescents, the main characters in John Hughes' 1984 film, The Breakfast Club. These individuals represent a cross-section of middle class high school students, brought together to share a day of detention. In the process, they reveal much about the factors that shaped their personalities, the problems each faces, and their possible futures. This paper uses elements from many of the principal theories of personality development to understand who these people are and who they are likely to become. "The Breakfast Club" is a disparate group of high school students at a suburban Chicago school in the mid-1980s.
The title relates to this story b/c Eric was the bystander that didn't do anything when Griffin beat up David. He didn't want to get involved, but he also knew what they ( Griffin and his group) were doing was wrong and bad. I learned that even if your not the one being bulled you should always tell a teacher or a parent that someone is getting physically or mentally bulled. No form of bullying is right and shouldn't be done in the first
Why wouldn’t Holden try to listen to Mr. Spencer about his poor academic accomplishments although he knows his failures? Answer: Holden is experiencing puberty and that may be the main reason why he won’t even bother listening to other people’s opinions, especially about his academic achievements. He just doesn’t want to care of that and enjoy his
He decided that not taking any action is the best action. While source one and source two feel like they have a collective responsibility to the world, source two believes that if he does nothing to harm the world he does not need to do anything to help make it better. Source two also leads on source three’s statement that cannot find the correct explanation and theory as to why the world is the way it is. Source two believes the world is a mess because of what people DO to it and does not think that maybe it is a mess because of the people that DON’T do anything. Therefor he is only just acting on his theory and doing nothing, whilst source three would argue that maybe he should go back a look at the situation again and look for a different theory as to why the world is the way it is and act on the new theory.
