I and my parents had a big fight about the grades that I had and the school even had us sat in the parent center to reconcile our problem with a psychologist. After the talk between my parent, the psychologist, and me, my parents seems changed, they don’t restrain me anymore like before. Even though I still thought that education is not important, but I started working hard to make up all the classes that I failed to get my high school diploma because I realized the hope that they put on me and I don’t want them to be disappointed again. During my senior year of high school, I did not only take six classes, but also working on a program called Cyber High to retake all my failed classes with high grades, and also take extra class to average up my GPA in order to meet graduate requirements.
Since the school felt I was performing so well on my own in academic classes, they talked my mom and me into doing away with my IEP. Throughout high school, something inside me told me I was better than just an academic student. I wanted to be able to be in honors classes because academic classes were not challenging enough for me. Teachers and other students did not take the academic classes seriously. I asked to be placed in an honors class my junior year; I was told it would be too difficult for me and I would fail.
Also different BPM’s (beats per minute) can motivate us to perform better... ... middle of paper ... ... some student will have trouble learning music. Admittedly it is difficult and frustrating at first. Nevertheless you can catch on to a musical instrument very fast. Therefore, having music a required credit is still a great idea. There are endless effects of the issue that I’m pressing.
Because both sides of the brain are being affected, there are both creative and analytical benefits to making music part of daily routines. It’s no secret that listening to or playing music is enjoyable, but studies have proven that music can boost more than just your mood. Listening to music releases dopamine in the brain. Dopamine is known not only for improving mood but also increasing motivation and emotional stamina. But the benefits that come from listening to music affect more than just the way we feel.
She struggled with depression, and after being in honor classes for the past three years, she started to struggle with her classes. When she reached twelfth grade because of her low performance in her junior year, she was put in medium level classes. She felt discouraged and she did only what she needed to do to graduate. One of the consequences was that she lost her opportunity to get a scholarship to a university that she always dreamed of going to. I want to ask the school board and teachers, why wait so long to bring attention to a student 's bad grades instead of warning your students at the start of their failing grades?
Sometimes, when we are sick it helps to take away some of the sorrow, pain, and it comforts us the best way it can. (White) A person can do more than just dance to music; they clean, laugh, sing, cry, and make some of the greatest memories while enjoying music. Music can take us back in time to past memories, whether they are good or bad. It can make us think of different phases of our life. Just hearing one song can take us back years.
One important thing to realize is just how the brain brea... ... middle of paper ... ...ee exactly how strong the power of music is and will become in the future. There have been many studies that have proven this. For example, a study shows that students who study music in high school make better grades than those who do not. The reasoning for this is that listening to music makes you think more efficiently and improves your memory. Society has relied on music so greatly that without music life would change as we know it today.
Music has also been shown to overall affect peoples abilities to learn new things such as vocabulary, language, and reading. Another major influence that music has on the brain is to help people who have suffered from a stroke regain the ability to process new information and old information that was once gone. It has also been proven that melodic intonation therapy helps stroke patients to be able to speak again. Because communication, reading, and vocabulary are so essential in everyday life, music is definitely a phenomenon in that should be further discovered because of its benefits that it has already had with improving the minds of people in society today.
I decided to be an “underpaid” teacher, more specifically English teacher. My mom was upset because she disliked English, the language, the reading, the grammar, everything. We did not speak for four months because of my decision, she was not proud. It hurt to not have my family 's support, but I was not going to let anyone force me to be something I did not want to be. I grew tired of waiting so I decided to be the first to initiate a conversation I went home and sat her down.
Though my symptoms for agoraphobia started well before my first grade year, that day in particular gave me a glimpse of what my life was going to be like. I was able to see for a short moment in time what sort of struggles I was going to face as I grew older. Through everyone’s perspective I was considered lazy. I always had a terrible excuse as to why I could not go outside and play with the other children, be it at school or home.It appeared as though I wanted to stay in the house and do nothing, but what the adults were not seeing is the sad child that sat in the window and cried while she watched the other children play. These little instances got worse throughout my life and I seldom wanted to play with the other children.
