The Importance Of School As An Agent Of Socialization

- ... I recognized that I actually wanted to do well in school, not just having fun. I started to make friends with the people that were praised a lot by my teachers and peers. My teachers and my best friends helped and motivated me both emotionally and intellectually and shaped my identity. This group of friends belonged to a social hierarchy that exists within my high school. In my opinion, high school social hierarchy is a ranking of how involved each student is within that school. Within my school’s social hierarchy, there are six rankings: the popular group, the acceptable group, the average group, the neglected group, and the controversial group (   [tags: High school, Sociology, Education]

The Lesson Plan For The School System

- Ask any student that is wandering around what words they would use to describe school; the answer will most likely be that it is mind-numbingly boring. Getting an education isn’t inherently uninteresting, but the way that it is taught can lead a student to believe that it isn’t worth their time. It appears to be that the causes of student’s uninterest are lesson plans, the idea that what they’re learning is meaningless, and the lack of freedom involved in the school system. The lesson plans that teachers think of for their students can be at two varying ends of the spectrum for an individual student....   [tags: Education, Teacher, Lesson plan, School]
