This puts many students at a huge risk that could possibly deter them from where they want to go. An author that writes about controversial topics states, “Pressure placed on students to score well on a test plays a big role in determining the academic future for so many highschoolers” (Khaderoo). With cheating allowed, more students will feel at ease and be able ascertain their goals. Sometimes, it is not always the students fault for getting bad grades, it could potentially be the teachers. There are people out there in the world with the title “teacher” but can’t actually teach.
On the other hand, if our parents and siblings tell us that grades don’t matter as long as we try our very best, we may not have any problems telling others we failed a test when we studied for hours preparing for it. We feel good about our efforts, and therefore our self-esteem is higher. I believe the second most significant influence on the development of a person’s self-concept and self-esteem is culture. Our culture also determines what we feel is important and what we deem insignificant. We live in a culture
Also, if they cheat on a test by asking a friend and the friend gets caught, the friend will get in trouble for their actions and they might have ruined their friend’s future. Also, when a person decides to cheat and is able to get away with it, they believe cheating is the only way to do well. It is a quick way to get work done in school, which causes it to become an awful habit. That person will probably stop studying, and do whatever they want on their free time, because they know they will get by on cheating. If that person chooses to lie about their abilities, they may be held accountable for fraud and/or theft.
If peers would motivate students more then that could help with procrastination. Peer pressure plays a big role in procrastination because a friend should be there to motivate students to do their assignments not pressure them to stop and continue later. Many students also procrastinate because of boredom. Students feel that some assignments don’t be interesting enough for them and that causes them to delay the assignment and put it aside. Sometimes students blame teachers for their procrastination because they feel the teacher is boring and not teaching right.
Some academics come naturally to students and if they are outnumbered by those that don’t comprehend the lesson, then they may receive a poor grade. In the same manner if a student is outnumbered by intellectual student then they would receive a grade they did not earn. I have seen a few children in the classroom who can read really well and it would not be fair to those few students if they received a low grade because the majority of the class does not know how to read well yet. Another downside to group grading is that sometimes you find that some people work harder than others. In college as well as in kindergarten you find students that put forth no effort, when this happens you have students who are going to have to work harder to pick up the slack.
MANDATORY VOLUNTEERING Although mandatory volunteering seems to be a waste of time for many students, in my opinion, mandatory volunteering is still a good idea. In spite of the fact that volunteering is a personal choice, nowadays, it is a requirement to graduate from school .Many people are against it strongly. However, Firstly, students should study not only about knowledge but also about morality or social behavior. Students of today have good taking skills but extremely poor giving skills. Volunteering is an opportunity for them to explore their life and see the world with a different set of eyes.
20Oct11 Money and Relationships "Often, silence is a shield for the shame, guilt and anxiety people feel about their own ways with money(47)." Olivia Mellan, author of Men, Women and Money, explains how money can be an emotional barrier that drives couples apart. When two people become a couple, whether they just live together or get married, they form a new correlation with their money. One person will earn more, inevitably given the upper hand on financial matters. Others will enter into the relationship with debts but are ashamed to mention it.
The good thing about teacher offering extra points for participation in charity drives is that those will get more student participation than normal. Most students will ignore or just forget to donate if there’s nothing in it for them. It also raises awareness of charities or world/national/community problems in general. Most students if it doesn’t affect their life then it’snot important. By teachers giving points then students also get an opportunity to help them raise their grade.
He blame parents having great hopes for their offspring. He blame professors for giving too much work and the students drive themselves crazy to do better than their peers. Nevertheless, Zinsser think that grades are not that important. But the students care about their grades in their classes a lot. In contrast, he believe the employers look at the range of classes the students take, not what grade they got on a specific subject.
Their classmates may not find it okay for them to get good grades while they do nothing, while the classmates study hard and long to get the grades that they do. It can also lead the professor to think that the class is too easy. They may feel the need to increase the level of difficulty. Those in the class may not think that is fair either. If a professor finds that a person is cheating, they have to report them to the main office of the college, this can lead to difficulties for a student.
