The narrator did not know the difference between working inside the house or out in the yard. All she knew was that she wanted to work outside with her father becaus... ... middle of paper ... ...ymore, but that she has to become something more than that. For instance, she will have to work inside the house, such as cooking, cleaning, and doing laundry, compared to the work she use to do out in the yard for her father. When all is said and done, she knows what is expected of her now, and will have to take on the responsibilities that go with it. After women have fought for their rights, society has changed.
In the beginning I could not be able to express myself with the people around me. I often felt frustrated and lonely. People told me that for starting my education just at that time will be hard, because I just start learning English language. Regardless of all those discouraging comments Mount Wachusetts Community college gave me a new meaning of education. I started MWCC with the pre semester classes.
Growing up, I hated school. The sinking feeling I got hearing people talk about academics was distressing. Every time I heard the words “mathematics” or “language arts” used in speech I would cringe reminding myself of what I struggle with. Looking back at this struggle, I realize that it helped define the essential components of my personality. Without this hardship, I would not have the resiliency, enthusiasm, or diligence that I have today to face my educational and real - life endeavors.
When I was in elementary school in Hong Kong, I was disgusted to learn English because I had a fixed mindset. According to “The Perils and Promises of Praise," written by Carol S. Dweck, fixed mindset students would escape from the challenges or problems, instead of overcoming it(p.1-2). During elementary school, I always got terrible grades on my English quizzes and tests. In addition, I did not understand most of the grammar and vocabulary that the teachers taught me during the lessons. Moreover, I rarely practiced English or reviewed it before the quizzes or the tests.
This semester in Education 101 I have learned a lot about different issues that occur in school settings. All of the issues are important but some are majorly more important than others. One is standardized testing which I can say is unfair testing because everyone learns in a different way and comprehend things differently this test caters to one style of learning. Bullying is another issue that is hard to address and hard to maintain but is very serious and takes place every day. Lack of family involvement is the one thing that matters the most because if a parent shows no interest in their children’s education the child will show no interest either.
No Child Behind Act: The history and continued debate of its effectiveness As I filled in scantron form with my number two pencil, I remembered that writing my name was just as important as entering my school code. Thinking back to elementary school I can remember the week long exams. The week in which I longed to be sick just so I wouldn’t have to be spilt from my class and spaced out to test rigorously on my comprehension of various subjects. This describes my first encounter with the ineffectiveness of standardized testing. Teachers were extremely stressed during this period as well but at the time I didn’t understand why.
The main argument for gender roles is that there will always be gender roles due to the fact that men can’t reproduce. Men is “supposed” to provide order in the house, while women take care of the children. The consensus of opinions is that “without gender roles there would be confusion and chaos” (Debate.org). This opinion doesn’t truly see the fact that women are expected by society to conform to these roles from the beginning of time. Women’s supposed roles are cooking, cleaning, and being a submissive wife/mother.
Kindergarten was the worst. I remember I had a teacher drag me out of class by my sweater to the Principles office because I wasn’t doing what was asked but I didn’t understand her instructions, plus on the way to the office I pushed her hand off my sweater which got me “Apple Room” for 2 days. I had a lot of trouble developing my English, my speaking and comprehension, as also my readings were decent, but I had a hard time developing my writing. I don't remember anything, about elementary school besides that situation I had with the teacher. All my middle school years I was in ESL classes, at the time, I didn't know what it meant and didn't care either as all my classmates were Hispanic and also my teachers knew how to speak Spanish.
Despite the changing role of women in a patriarchal society like Nepal, we have been passively trained to take care of our spouses, and feel uncomfortable when we see our male counterpart doing the household chores. The guilt of being less involved as a homemaker and more a career oriented women seems sinister to my culture. In this essay, I intend to analyze the division of labor based on the silent indoctrinated gender roles at home. After a careful and continuous observance for more than a decade, I have realized that my parents share a traditional relationship that is highly in favor of my father, my mother is the traditional home maker while my father is the sole bread winner for the family. With the cultural factors at play, I intend to discuss the gender ideologies that have been passed down from generations in my family.
There are many people that would say that education is the most important thing and others would not agree with that statement and there are lots of reasons for that. That is because students learn and approach education differently than others. Some of the reasons are that many of the parents don't know how to help their children, students are not engaged in the work and we let the media think for us. A lot of students no matter if they are in middle school, high school or even college they can't be successful students because they do not have parents that can sit down with them and help them on homework. Richard says "I was oddly annoyed when I was unable to get parental help with a homework assignment.
