Even though studying is the best way to get good grades, students cheat because feel they have to be straight A students because they are pressured by their parents to do well and they will not excel without above average grades. Academic dishonesty is something that is frowned on by all academic institutes no matter where you enroll. Cheating, plagiarism, fabrication, and deception of any kind are risking your entire school career and could jeopardize your entire working career. So why do so many students willingly participate in this practice? Some would stay it is because students do not want to study and just find it much easier to just purchase a essay online or to park their seat next to the “nerd” in the class to ensure that you ace every pop quiz.
It is because this may not only lead to a damaged relationship between teachers and students, but also can lead to negative associations. Consequently, positive punishment cannot be used frequently. Apart from the above method, there is another way to chastise the students which is negative punishment. Negative punishment is the removal of a favorable stimulus after an unwelcome performance in order to decreases that response, which means if students did something wrong and their favorable things such as toys or smart phones will be taken away as a punishment. Jason, one of my students, as an example, he loves playing PSP and NDS very much, so before
Group Grading While volunteering in my son’s kindergarten class I have come to realize that education is one area that would not benefit from group grading system. Grading students as a group allows some students to advance based on the work of others, and individual grading makes each student responsible for their own future. Although some people may benefit from a group grading system, an individual grading system is a much better way to judge a student’s level of knowledge, makes them accountable for their own work, and keeps teachers informed of what each student is learning. One of the many ways grading students as a group is less efficient and seemingly harmful is the fact that all students do not have the same level of knowledge. 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.
Abolishing public school attendances, as well as school curriculums are the solutions to children getting a better education, according to John Holt. In School Is Bad for Children, written by Holt, he emphasis’s his opinions that the public school system is failing the children of today. He describes a child that becomes limited in his curiosity and learning ability by the school system. “Your experience, your concerns, your curiosities, what you know, what you want, what you wonder about… all of this is not of the slightest importance, it counts for nothing” (Blair Reader 65). Holt states that learning from school teachers takes away one’s individuality and teaches children that if you don’t learn things their way, then you won’t learn it at all.
Standardized testing has become a norm in American education. It has been decided that every student should be able to meet a certain goal. If not, they are below average and will have a hard time being successful in life. Children aren’t motivated to learn when teachers “teach to the test.” There has come to be an understanding that there is a certain level of knowledge demanded by society. Who decides this?
Should homework be banned? Schools should not give homework for a variety of reasons. Learning is best done at school and stress is often caused by work given by schools. The need to do lots of additional work makes people prefer not to learn more about the topic. As students do undesirable activities, they lose otherwise better spent time with their family and friends.
A student should never act dumbfounded by how poorly their final grades turned out to be considering the amount of information provided by the instructor in order to help aid the student in time of need. Weisenfeld states, “Many, when pressed about why they think they deserve a better grade, admit they don't deserve one but would like one anyway.” Assuming the students already foresaw the outcome of their grades,
In some schools not only do students stress out, but teachers do too because they are trying to meet the expectation of constantly giving out homework so they are stressing over the fact that they have to constantly give out homework that can benefit the students. Another reason schools should give out less homework is because there was a study in 2014 that showed high stress levels, a lack of balance in children's lives and physical health problems such as ulcers, migraines, sleep deprivation and weight loss are a result of having too much homework. One final reason that schools should give less homework is because sometimes homework does not help in the students performance and standardized tests. As a result schools should be giving less homework because teachers are stressing to constantly give beneficial homework so they are not focused while teaching so there will be even more confusion, homework is affecting the student’s physical health by giving them migraines, sleep deprivation and other problems that affect how the student lives, and sometimes the homework that is given does not help the student’s performance in class and on standardized
Tschinkel believes “we are failing to instill a love of learning in most of our students, replacing it instead with a pointless “game-the system” approach”. Tschinkel also states, the blame falls not only on the students, but on the entire educational system- professors, teachers, parents, the media- which encourages the sport metaphor and misrepresents the value of a true education. Tschinkel feels that students can change this mentality and actually take their education seriously however, this transition will be hard. The educational value of this article is for students and professors to realize
Your script is short and Cleary, very straight forward and easy to understand the point you’re trying to pass on to the reader. I would like to agree with you on when you said “Our educational system misleads the youth of today” This point is very well explained and very true. School is the main reason people don’t succeed in life because it teaches you the things which you won’t use and don’t need in the outside world. My goal in life is to be an engineer but school not only discourages you but also forces you to take subject which are not related to engineering for instinct grade 7-9 you are suppose to take biology. This might be said to be an advantage that it increases your knowledge but that not true, what I really think is that it gets you confused, lost and most likely finding yourself on the wrong dream at the end of it all.”Learning should be a more active process “This quote backs up the previous quote because for example engineering is mostly to do with practical work, field work but instead you waste 15 years of your life in a room doing things which are unrelated to your goal instead of being out exploring and learning more about engineering and preparing for the real thing.”What, after all, is the
