After going through high school and now being in college, I have realized that high school can be sort of a joke because it often does not fill its mission. High schools waste students valuable time, on drilling unimportant information and enforcing pointless rules. Students should use that time to be getting educated for the real world and not to just pass a test. Although preparing for standardized testing is very important, schools need to focus on educating students on how the world works. Many aspects go into creating an effective high school program.
My junior year of high school, I preferred to sit in the middle of my AP English Language class to avoid being called on by my teacher, Mr. Johnson. Mr. Johnson was a mature, relatively little man with an advanced vocabulary and an awkward humor. I was quite intimidated by this teacher like no other teacher. I would feel intimidated to speak or to submit my work. When I first stepped into the class, I was able to feel the high expectations towards my work once we were handed the scoring rubric for the produced in this class; I had a feeling I would be unable to meet that criteria.
So debating Foucault, Neiszche, Rouseau and Hobbes, to name a few, was not exactly what I was looking to get out of my education. I must say, I will never forget what the social contract is. I wrote a paper for my Political Science Contemporary Political Thought (PSC 202), I have very little idea of what it means but I got an A on it. I have never been more shocked at a grade before, good or bad. But I also felt this immense pressure to now continue to get A’s.
I guess you could say no one in my family is really outstanding academically. Being bad at reading and writing, (but mostly reading) made me think that I was never going to be successful in my future life. Five years later flew by; in the 7th grade I got taken out of my English class everyday because of my IEP, and my helper teacher helped me with whatever I needed. She read and explaine... ... middle of paper ... ...to him one on one and all he had to say to me was good things. He said, “Evie, you have made a huge progress this year.
