They have already spent their time in school focusing and learning for nothing, since homework is... ... middle of paper ... ... and focus towards learning about math, english, science and so on. When the teachers hand out large stacks of paper, to practice at home, I see that it’s just whatever the kids have learnt already. And if they have to do it again for another two or more hours, that is just plain torture.” I believe that this goes to show that homework is just repeated, fake, knowledge. In conclusion, I have to say that homework should truly be banned from all schools around the world. When this happens, teachers will start to feel respected during class time, parents will be able to bond and get together with their precious family for once, and students?
As a child, I don’t have much literacy experiences with my own family because everyone was busy; my father was a full-time college student at a community college, my mother was a housewife whose English was very limited and two older siblings whose busy with school and work and doesn’t have the time to help me and the rest of my other siblings. My family influence had impacted my literacy experiences because I feel like I did not gain any good remarks when it came to school
I would sit in my math classes and feel completely clueless about the subject, not understanding anything that my teacher was saying. While the some of the kids in the class got high grades
I turn around and look at the school and my heart started pounding really fast. I felt like a little bug inside a mansion, the school was enormous. I took a deep breath and walked into the entrance of the school. I pulled out my schedule and headed to my first class. As I was looking for my first class I got lost and couldn’t find it so I stopped by a random teacher’s room and asked her to direct me.
Gonzales and a CLA, Tyler, that I defiantly had at least one strong point, but also had some unanswered questions. I did not communicate with my audience effectively. I felt my paper was very choppy and not very focused. I was trying to include all the reasons for why and how I did not like writing papers for my high school English teachers. Instead I should have been explaining why I thought writing did not need rules and why my past teachers might have thought that we needed these rules that they were telling us about.
That was the first school I went here in the United States. The first day of school I wasn’t only nervous I was so confused. Everything was so different the climate, the people, the schedule, everything. The first day was terrible the only thing that made me a little exited was that for the first time I was going to have a locker, because the previous schools I went to din’t have lockers. The first day I looked at the schedule every minute and before entering the class room I would see the number of the classroom like a hundred times to sure I wasn’t going to go into the wrong room.
Writing can be complicated, but thanks to Mr. Johnson I learned that it takes time and commitment to improve in writing. I no longer focus on how I am graded because a score is just a number. Besides, there are no good or perfect essays. I surely find it important to get a good grade, but focusing on my idea for my essay and how I support it is more important and the foundation to getting a good score. I don’t think I would have realized how much I can strive in writing without the help of a teacher who didn’t give up on me when I almost
Teachers were extremely stressed during this period as well but at the time I didn’t understand why. I remember the reading, writing, comprehension and mathematics testing and then things returning to business as usual after the exam were sent off to be graded. I never really paid this much attention because as a kid you learn to study a subject and then complete the examination to determine your knowledge. Interestingly enough as I progressed as a student I learned how the seemingly long boring timed test determined which courses you placed in. Until more recently I knew little to nothing about the education reform acts which mandated these awful tests.
By them not allowing us to use us them and experiment with them, I feel that we were "turned off" by them really. This may have been caused by the lack of experience the teachers actually had. Also, they had been doing math for so long and they never used calculators. They did not see the need for the use of them.
I quickly walk to Mrs.Berntson’s room as my heart pounds 1000 beats per minute. I slowly walk into her dark room, wondering why no one is here, and expecting some sort of trap. I take a couple steps inside then all of a sudden WHOOSH, next thing I know i’m hanging on the ceiling by me feet with a thick rope tied around my ankles. The nefarious lady comes out of the dark corner yelling, “I told you we’re gonna be in the computer lab typing our Meanwhile essays, didn’t you pay attention to anything i said yesterday! ?” “Y..ye ..yes mam, I just simply forgot,” I said.
