They cannot choose their classes, nor choose their schedule also teachers and advisors always supervise students so they do not make any mistake. It is not the high school student responsibility to pass the course, but the teacher responsibility to make sure the student passes the course. Expectations are low when it comes to high school because one way or another you are going to leave out of there with a diploma, except the students who decide to drop out of high school. On the opposite side, college gives the student so much freedom that can be overwhelming in some cases if they do not know how to control it. Students are responsible for choosing their classes, choosing their professors and schedule their classes. In college, there are numerous expectations, from the professors, the advisors, the family members and even the student himself/herself placed a high expectation when he/she decided to come to
In high school, the teacher pretty much babysits the students. The teacher always has to get on their students to pay attention in class, to do their work, and to stay awake during the lecture. Also high school teachers don’t really expect their students to read ahead in their textbooks. In college the professors are very different. College professors expect the best from their students, because they know that their students are spending a very large sum of money in their education. The professors expect their students to read their textbooks before class, and to do their homework. They also expect their students to stay awake during the lecture, if not they will kick the student out. College professors don’t care if a student doesn’t turn in their homework or if they forget to read a chapter in their textbook. College professors are not worried about this because it’s not their grade, they already have their degree. Also, college professors won’t accept any late work. They also are very strict on absences and most college professors will rarely give any extra credit to replace a student’s absences. This is one of the reasons why high school teachers and professors are not the
One of the easiest ways to succeed at a job is to simply show up. For some people, it is very hard to show up for work. There are many reasons, valid or not, for people not going to work. Whether it be illness, family obligations, or change of season, people will always find an excuse not to go to their job a particular day. Showing up for work when you are supposed to and on time is not only highly beneficial for your employer, but for you personally as well. However, most employees do not realize the effects of absenteeism. (Bossidy, 2001)
College for me is a way to start anew; I believe that college gives many wonderful opportunities to students; that help them throughout their carrier, as well as their lives. College for me provides a better understanding of yourself, as well as students place in the world. I believe that many students come into college thinking that college is just like any normal school, that they have attended. Once students get into college is that they really notice the difference, in college students are treated as adult, and are expected to act as such at all times. In high school I believe that students are babied too much, that’s why when they get into college they are overwhelmed at the sudden change in maturity, and level of academic
Seventy three thousand, three hundred seventy eight (73,378) students call ASU home. Two thousand eight hundred seventy five (2,875) teachers work at ASU. While on average the class sizes should be twenty-five students per teacher, this simply is not true. Out of six of my very own classes four of them contain over one hundred students. All of theses classes are required to take to graduate in four years. If a student is running late or the class fills up quickly, many students seem to find themselves in the back of the class. Theses students put themselves at a disadvantage. It has been scientifically proven sitting in the back of the class hurts a student’s grade. A st...
Are large lecture hall numbers in colleges pushing incoming freshman away? It does for me and many other people I talk to about college. In colleges adds, they mainly advertise if they have small class numbers. They tell us that we will be on a first name basis with out professors if we attend that college. Never have I seen the University of Iowa brag about their 300 people lecture halls. There is a reason to that, and it is quite simple. Students do not learn as well in large class sizes. According to the article “Does Class Size Matter” in the New York Times, students were asked to comment their thoughts on the question. Out of the 220 comments left by students all around the world, 99 percent of the comments that I read said that they liked being in smaller classes for a few simple reasons. One, they can pay attention to what the teacher is teaching better. Two, there are less distractions; this is beneficial to both the teacher and students. And three, the communication with the teacher is much better in a classroom with fewer students. There is more to just the students learning that gets affected by class sizes. We must step back and look at the rock of the classroom, the teacher. It does affect how students learn if the teacher is using certain methods. There are a multitude of ways to teach and sometimes it just doesn’t click with a student the way the teacher is teaching. If we had smaller classes, educators would be able to identify the students who are struggling and figure out a way to help them
College life for many new graduates can be a turn off, especially after years of public education, and the thought of spending more time in class is too much to bear. Still, others may decide it is too early to join the workforce, and choose to enroll in a college instead. The workload for college students can be difficult due to the expense of attending, increased complexity of coursework, and self-governing responsibility needed to succeed. Nonetheless, those who enter the real world can expect rigid work schedules, usually less than adequate pay, and uncertain economic job markets. One noticeable aspect of the real world is the demands employers may place upon his or her employees. Some employers maintain stiff attendance policies and fixed performance quotas. Staying the entire du...
When looking at attending class from the perspective of a college student it should hopefully be easy to understand why you should attend. For most students the answer would consist of something along the lines of ‘to better educate myself’ or ‘so I can get a better paying job’, both of which seem plausible. However, those from past generations and those with different demographics might look at this question much differently, due to a college education not always being a necessity to become successful in life. Therefore older generations may have looked at skipping class in a different light than a 20 year-old would today. With much higher stakes to do well in both primary and higher education courses causes cutting class to carry great risk
The reason why college instructors should focus on their teaching is because that college student’s emphasis more on getting their college course finish as soon as possible and only taking college course that directly relate to the major or field of interest. This can have a negative effect toward college students. A research shown in Anthony Grafton survey and article “Our Universities: Why Are They Failing?” that only about 50 percent of college and university students persist to graduation, and almost half will not finish a bachelor’s program within six years. College costs are soaring and student loan debt is a huge burden for many. This is leaning toward college students and families financial status problem where college students lack important education in their majoring. How can college instructors improve college students learning experience? To improve this situation is for college instructors to get college students more involve during their class time. Another good improvement for college students to gain learning experience is also collective effort from group. This helps nourish the students experience and knowledge for learning. In the past, I have experience this before in my last semester where I saw a student’s leave the classroom while the instructor is giving a lecture. The reason why those students the classroom was because the instructor for that class
