However, this does not mean that students should be encouraged to work very hard at night and then just take it easy in class the next day. College students should understand by now that they need to manage their time wisely. That means that they should not put off essay-writing until the night before the due date. They should not cram a study session the night before the test. Some students have especially terrible reasons for falling asleep in class.
Attending all your classes on a daily basis is necessary to succeed in college. The amount of time you have in a classroom is very limited to begin with, so when you do miss a class you are cutting the time you have down and it hurts you academically. Everytime you miss a class you lose almost two hours of lecture and learning. In order to learn something properly you must get a vivid example but by not attending you are missing out on the example you should of gotten that day. By not showing up to class you fall behind on your work because you failed to turn in the homework you should have that day.
Yet again we will get more learning time. In the outcome kids will most likely be happier. One of my reasons being, kids don't like the long hours. Also kids don't like to be in school more than about 6 hours of school. I mean kids do sit in class all day and by the end of the day some start to stink!
Life Event 1 – Graduation of High School High School was a significant part of my life as it help me learn about life and to start to become the person I want to be. Without a high school education you will not be admitted into certain colleges or jobs. Completed in high school also helps with your confidence and self esteem in life. How I felt after high school was excited and scared. I thought wow I am finally free of getting up early for classes and doing homework and I was going to be able to sleep all day and stay up all night.
When you were a teenager, how often did you find yourself sleepy during school? How often did you fall asleep during class? Research probes that if schools had later start times kids would be more alert during the day, grades would improve, behavior would improve, and there will be less tardiness. Lets face it, most teenagers usually go to bed late, meaning they wake up late for school, and then result in tardiness. Constantly being for the same class, students begin to fail, and who wouldn't be upset from that?
If a person is not able to get a full night's sleep after learning something new, they will not remember the new knowledge well. They will not fully understand the new ideas or task until they are able to get the optimum amount of sleep. For example, you might have been able to concentrate on writing an essay in an hour and a half when fully retested, but instead you take 3 hours to write an essay. That’s twice the time you would normally take, half of the time you spent on focusing and trying to think even harder while you were sleep deprived. You may have also had class that day and the next day you might not even remember what was talked about or learned in that class the day before.
Summer is a time for students to take a break from school. However, with the NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND ACT and more specifically to AP classes, more schools are taking caution to keep their students from failing out of line. More and more teachers are assigning homework over the summer to help students retain their knowledge over the long three months, but it may not be the best way to benefit kids’. The break should be free of homework so kids’ can relax and spend time with families, get rid of stress, and pursue their interests. A year-round, students have been doing their homework.
Parents can relieve the burden by making sure that they are eating regularly and getting enough sleep. Tiredness makes revision ineffective and affects performance in exams. Revise for maximum 30 minute intervals and then have a 5 minute break. The exam should be treated as a normal school or college day, other than that they are doing an exam. Follow your normal routine will help you relax.
Studies have shown that young people brains work better in the afternoon even in the night. With school starting at 8:45am we don’t get enough sleep, with all the homework we have to do at night and all the outside activities we don’t get a chance to go to bed early and be ready to wake up early in the morning. If school started at around 10:00am which would give young people a bit of a sleep in and by the time we were at school we would all be woken up and ready to learn. The first two sessions of the day is the time we take to wake up, I know from experience that sometimes I just feel like I can’t remember a lot of what I learnt, it’s like it goes in one ear and out the other. By recess I’m fully awake and finally ready to learn.
