Single-Sex Education can be successful, but also unsuccessful. Compared to Co-Education, it might come in 2nd place, but it’s still a great opportunity for students all around the world, and I think that Single-Sex Education is a great offer for schools, and should be used more often. It falls behind in some areas like interaction and grade leveling but it also pulls ahead in things like better grades, gpa, and focus. The true key to education is what works for the student, I have seen students strive in many different types of education and I seen students that would pry do better in the other. It is really all up to what the student wants and what they are willing to put into it.
They feel much more comfortable about their abilities without worrying about how they look in front of boys and have more confidence to take place and participate in class discussions, while boys have much more confidence to dominate most class discussion, thus giving no chance for girls to participate in those discussions. The major problem is that teachers often call boys more than girls in Mathematics mainly. It also shows that boys get a great benefit from attending single sex schools. It is expected that a teacher of a class of boys only could adopt a teaching method that encourages boys' abilities in discussions and debates to be more direct, straight, excited at the same time. Generally, not all boys and girls are going to be relaxed in single sex classes, it would be very violent.
The problem is that the system only really recognizes the book smart students. That is one place the system is going completely awry. More schools need to have different programs to fit the students. If every student is assessed with the same criteria then there is no diversity. Society thrives on diversity and if this diversity is recognized early in a student’s academic career, then they will thrive and they won’t have to spend their adult
I strongly believe that people of my generation are smarter and more intelligent than our ancestors, while my grandparents disagree with this idea. I see that the present-day discovery of scientific facts and modern technology help shaping our idea of the world and lead us to the better understanding of the world, by giving us skill of swiftness, convenient access to information and fact of nature, and correcting the false myths. Also, brand-new style of teaching allows kids these days to be more creative and confident than those in the old days, as students are allowed to use ask their teacher when in doubt, and join an open discussion in class. While our grandparents spent their free times reading books, played with wooden toys and felt the fresh air outside home, kids of my generation are surrounded by televisions, video games, tablets, smart phones and computers in a closed room. These gadgets, in contrast with book which requires much imagination to build a world from text, give vivid image of the fantasy on screen.
Naturally younger kids can learn languages faster than older folk like us that's one reason why some of you probably dropped spanish. Good news is we can still reach same level of fluency just with a thicker accent. Speaking a foreign language also improves your brain power and problem solving skills in which allows you to score better on standardized tests. For those who love being on your phone during class you can also upgrade your multi tasking skill so think about it. For you health nerds… haha just playing.
Giuliani was quoted regarding bilingual education by saying, "It's cruel to them and gives them less of a chance to succeed" (Willen 8). This is a bizarre view that Giuliani is issuing considering that it has been proven that students who are enrolled in bilingual classes perform better on standard eyes tests. This is an advantage for these students to succeed considering that the better the test grades the better the opportunity to get into good college. In addition one can notice that knowing more than one language can "utilize the strengths of bilingual children to prepare all students to compete in a global economy that increasingly calls for multilingual and multicultural expertise" (Beyer 11). Bilingual education can be seen beneficial in many schools and helps students prepare for a future in corporate America.
The laptops provided accountability for all the students, but did not ‘enhance classroom lessons’, as was the intention. The school board liked to believe that the technology would increase interactivity in classrooms and open new doors for learning, but that interactivity that was discussed in board meetings was nonexistent in practicality. In addition, they tended to waste time. We would spend the
Anyone would agree that being good-looking really does have its advantages, studies show attractive students get more attention and higher evaluations from their teachers, good-looking patients get more personalized care from their doctors, and handsome criminals receive lighter sentences than less attractive convicts, but recent debates have asked, do good-looking people get better jobs than an average looking person? According to Aristotele “Personal beauty is a greater recommendation than any letter of reference” In my opinion, better-looking people do get better jobs. I do not necessarily agree with this however I think that people like to deal with pretty people. In the service industry especially, managers look for young beautiful people to represent their company. When searching for information on this topic I found many different debates, experiments and polls containing information on the question.
The Apprentice show is just another example of socially intelligent people doing better than naturally smart people in every day life. Finally, I think there is one quality, more than any other, which makes socially smart people more successful and happy than the just intelligent people.
In contrast, what actually happens when students have too much influence over a professor’s popularity is that their grades often go up even though their performance has not improv... ... middle of paper ... ...re more likely to succeed in the highly rated classes than lower ranked. This is the reason why Yale University should have not student down a site helping students to be successful in their classes. In conclusion, this article does report the reason why Yale University should have not shut down a web site allowing students to rate their professors and to do extremely better in their courses. The more we come up with a good measure will indicate how intellectual and diplomatic students are. But most importantly, students should not depend or rely on the website allowing them to rate their professors before enrolling in a course, but rather study harder to attain their targets.
