The Berean Academy handbook states “the dress must be honoring to God, be appropriate for the occasion, and be neat and clean,” (16.0). Some people like dress codes while others despise them. There are both pros and cons to having a dress code; however the pros outweigh the cons by a large margin. It is essential to dress modestly, dress sharply, and dress for success. Students that do not have a dress code tend to wear what they wish and often they do not care if it is immodest....   [tags: argument, Education] 687 words

The Student Movement of 1968 - After the Revolution of 1910, the Mexican political system depended on tactics of repression, manipulation and coercion to control the actions of the opposition.

Luis Echeverria, the president following the Student Movement, faced political turmoil and instability during his presidency; he instituted reforms that were considered “left” during his time....   [tags: Social Studies]

How to Build Student Confidence - Background: Literature Review: Entering high school is not easy, and once they enter it, it’s not really bad, it’s not harder then elementary school, except the thought of entering a new world gives the students great fear.

Personality and the ESL Student - How can an extroverted or introverted personality in ELL and ESL students affect behavior, learning process and classroom environment. Extroversion versus Introversion the terms originated from psychologist Carl Jung's theory of personality. Jung saw the extrovert as directed toward the outside world and the introvert as directed toward the self or inside world. That is why, theoretically, introvert students are less involved in the classroom and extrovert students are more active. As I observed a classroom where the student population consists of 90% Latino and 70% are ELL or ESL students, I noticed how students’ personality and behavior could make a significant impact in a classroom....   [tags: Education]
