Every teacher has their unique way of teachings, and every students also have different preferred style of teaching. By giving a chance to students to pick their teacher that match their method of learning, students will feel more comfortable and this psychological factor will affect them to get better result in that class. In spite of the fact that this really useful for students, the good mark doesn’t represent a good skills for the people. There are some class that useful to train the skills of some people.... ... middle of paper ... ...e able to manage their own time no matter how complicated their schedule is. The random class also helps the students to know their colleague better because they meet new people in different classes.
Not only is Gap Year effective, but now colleges and employers are pushing high school students to take time off. Gap Year should be an American tradition because it helps one succeed. For those students who are not quite ready to make a decision affecting the rest of their lives, Gap Year is a chance for one to mature and discover oneself. If students are thrown into the college life to soon, through Woods studies has shown that “three out of five students who enter a public four-year college don’t manage to snag a degree within five years. And nearly 30 percent of all students who enter college don’t return for their sophomore year” (Wood).
Leilah Burdette Ms.Long/Mr.Herendeen Period.6 Feb.26.2016 Should Undocumented Students Receive a College Education? (Draft 1) Do you believe all children should have the opportunity to go to college? Most importantly many children want to go to college in America to better themselves and to live comfortable. There are many children who are undocumented who want to attend college (Tamer). Now only 18 states allow undocumented students to go to college and only five offer financial aid (Anderson).
On the other hand, students who couldn’t receive enough grant aid sought other alternatives to go into college like getting loans. Depending on the amount of years one chooses to attend college it can rack up to an unbelievable amount. According to Edvisors, a financial aid website, “The class of 2015 graduated with $35,051 in student debt on average.” Imagine that! It’s no wonder that the students who didn’t receive enough grant aid chose not to attend college. It was because they did not want to accumulate a debt that in most cases they would have to pay throughout their lives, claiming that tuition cost is too much for
People go to college for many different reasons; some go because they want to further their education in order to pursue a desired career, some go because they feel it is what is expected of them, and others go because they feel they have no other choice. No matter the reason, there always seems to be a problem in the classroom; the teacher will be lecturing while only a few students are responding. "In Nunn's (1996) observational study of participation in college classrooms, on average less than 6 percent of class time involved student interaction. That's three minutes of student talk per 50 minutes of class time." (Tomorrows Professor, 2006) There are numerous causes to this problem; students simply don’t want to pay attention, have a lack of sleep, are shy or care too much of what their peers will think of them, afraid of answering wrong, and many more reasons.
By taking challenging courses in high school, the students’ academic transition to college will be easier. However, the most important skill to possess is in good time management because it will help students to distribute their time between recreation, and academics. Even though it is important to take several precautions before attending college, the student also has to be prepared mentally for this new venture. This assignment was worthwhile for me because after completing this assignment I now realize how I can be successful in college. However, the only problem for me now is to apply these “precautions” into my daily routine.
In the real world, if you don’t show up for work regularly, you’re going to be fired. If scholars get into the habit of not showing up for class with no real repercussions, what lesson does that teach? Significant lessons that students need to learn is self-discipline, and by requiring students attend lectures, colleges should include strong incentives such attendance percentages accumulated in the final results for being disciplined. The third argument in favor of mandatory attendance is that students perform better in class if they turn up. In classes where class exercises are a major part of the learning experience –like public speaking or creative writing–low attendance may lead to a failing grade.
In 1975, Caroline Bird’s “College Is a Waste of Time and Money” describes why college degrees cannot buy you five years in the work force. Bird’s essay heavily describes the emotional struts these students encounter while attending college, and the anguish of dreadful classes which seem irrelevant to your actual desired occupation. High school students are inevitably being pushed to believe that college is a fundamental difference between working a desk job making $80,000 a year, and working a minimum wage job the rest of your life. Many college students are finding out that your twenty-thousand dollar degree won’t land you your dream job. Although some may advocate that college is the proven method to a successful career path, the majority of people that attend college are setting themselves up for failure with barricades like loans, low graduation rate, lack of experiences, and career success rate after receiving a degree.
College students spend more time at parties than working on their studies. In the documentary Ivory Tower, director, Andrew Rossi includes that 68 percent of university students fail and drop out of college because they are not focusing on their school work. People often use up too much of the time and money they don’t have to go to party’s, and end up not getting their work done. With the freedom college gives students, it is hard for them to make the right decisions. Most of the time, students attending school are still too young to handle the responsibility that comes along with away to school.
Freshman college students today are made up in large part of yesterday's unskilled laborers. I venture to guess that most of my fellow college students would have been sent out by their parents to lives of hard labor had they lived seventy-five years ago. Today, they are sent to college as a prerequisite to working in just about any field, even those that don't genuinely rely upon the skills one might gain in a traditional liberal arts and sciences education. Furthermore, students don't believe that they will ever "need" communication skills. The first question that one student asked in a college-level writing class that I took at a community college while I was still in high school was "Why do I need this course?"
