Time Is Valuable “My Mother at Sixty-Six” should be introduced in Engl-103 because it teaches the students the value of time and time management for them. Time is really a wonderful thing. It is satisfactory as it has no beginning or ending. All the things are born in time, grow in time, decay in time, and die in time. Time moves at its own pace and cannot be according to anybody’s will.
This affects students to not have enough time to spend with their families. In other words, they are too bus... ... middle of paper ... ...e other not getting done for the next day. For example, this same situation happened to my friend Becky. Although, what she did was her assignment instead of studying for her test. She ended up not having the best performance she could on that test.
These short sentences capture the attention of the reader as the poem reaches its climax in which the wife acknowledges her deep sorrow for the long absence of her husband. By not following the rigid form of poetry, Pound allows the reader to feel the sorrowful emotions of the wife. The images of natural environment and wildlife livings put an emphasis o... ... middle of paper ... ...te she must be just to see her beloved husband. Thus, the poetic devices are extremely appropriate and effective to illustrate the longing of the wife. Pound successfully uses various techniques in The River-Merchant’s Wife: A Letter to exude the longing and solitude of the speaker.
Some students are easygoing with absences from their universities courses, and many judge that they are working. Students prefer to skip their classes, and they prefer to go to their work because they may want to make money. Nevertheless, If students had a high number of absences, they might fail their courses. Even though students are busy or at work, they have to attend their classes in order to pass them. Also, some students make excuses to not attend their courses because they do not want to study.
Not everyone drop out because they lack the determination to finish, instead they run into other obstacle while equipped with the motivation. Those of which are trying to regulate the balance of work and school, unexpected family problems, and financial problems. Unprepared students sign up for school because they think a degree is a “Pass “ to the middle class, trying to get one step closer to their goal but drops out of college. The first cause of students dropping out of college is due to the fact that they are unable to balance their work and school together. Students who are working while going to school can often “bash” more than the government’s acceptable hours of work.
Worse still, students who have been up late trying to finish off their homework, then come tired into school the next day, and therefore are less ready to learn. Setting homework does little to develop good study skills. It is hard to check whether the homework students produce is really their own. Some students have always copied off others or got their parents to help them. But today there is so much material available on the internet that teachers can never be sure.
It doesn’t make them bad kids, or even bad students. Drop-outs report that some of the main reasons they drop out of school is not seeing value in the work they do. Almost half of them said the classes were not interesting, and were bored of their work, and say it’s among the main reasons students would stop attending classes (Furger “How to End the Dropout Crisis”). Expectations also tend to run high for students by their teachers. Regular students in school also debate to themselves to make the decision of dropping out from time to time, from the stress levels of piling assignments.
I messed up my GPA horribly. I took a year off and just gave myself some time to mature then reapplied for school at Chattahoochee. College takes a serious toll on people, some are able to strive through and come out on top and some suffer from outside family issues, can’t financially keep up with school or just lack the skills that are needed for higher education. College sometimes just isn’t for everyone; and students can’t handle it all like I couldn’t myself.
The particular student who always turns in their homework on time begins to stop; according to one student, “my parents asked me why I had failed to produce any homework despite having sat at my desk for several hours” (Shields 43). This information indicates the student seems lazy or does not understand the work given, however the problem with the student is the emotions did not match up to a state to concentrate enough to finish a task. The other issue is that the student may not understand the problem of the mental illness. Grades begin to alternate in two different directions. The student who brought back great grades in their report card has begun to show results out of the ordinary, which is the sense of failing classes, “a first semester of As and one B and then Cs and one D for the second semester that person would probably say they were two different people” (47).
After skipping a class, students go and take notes from other students who attended and class and copy them. However, this will affect them in their exams because they won’t get high grade as students who attend classes. There is an example about this rule in the book. A student needs to talk to her professor, who is the author of the book, about her grades. The professor found that her grade was extremely low because she missed two exams out of five and the third exam was few days away.
