Teaching Teenagers About Safe Sex

- For many years now, individuals in all states have been attempting to teach teenagers about safe sex. Administrators have designed special classes and foundations worldwide in order to help out with this subject. As said by K4Health, “The term ‘condom’ first appeared in print in 1717, in an English publication on syphilis, although its origin still remains uncertain” (Stryker). The reason why schools should be giving teenagers condoms is because most teenagers do not tell their parents that they are sexually active....   [tags: school, education, condoms]

My Spiritual Journey through Life

My teacher liked the story, although a few of my classmates did not understand why I did not choose my mother instead. I did not have an answer for them, I was too young to understand the type of relationship I had with my mother, I did not understand she neglected me. After school I told my family the good news, I explained to them I did well in class; my mother did not seem to be happy with me, I believe she was jealous of my choice....   [tags: rivers, religion, school]

Why I Am A Teacher

I now see the tremendous amount of work teachers put in everyday, going far beyond just curriculum content. It takes a very dedicated lifelong learner who is passionate about making a difference in the lives of children to become a teacher. Teaching presents many challenges and complexities. To ensure students receive high quality education they deserve, Teachers must meet the National Standards and requirements and constantly reflect upon their practice to improve....   [tags: Education, Teacher, School, Pedagogy]

High School Curriculum

- High School Curriculum When reviewing the literature regarding the past, present and future of educational curriculum, several main points seem apparent, namely that curriculum is cyclical, that a dilemma or paradox exists, and that curriculum must be looked at with a sensitive view. According to Lashway (1999) educators once saw educational reform as cyclical. Every ten years or so one could expect a public outburst followed by frantic efforts to mend a broken system. However, in the last twenty years there seems to have been a perpetual reform....   [tags: Education Argumentative Persuasive Papers]

The Possibilities Opened by Learning

- I’ve always been the “smart one” of the family. Ever since I entered Middle School I’ve gotten A’s and B’s, so my parents and other family members called me smart and praised the grades I got. When they ask me why I did well in school I told them it was because I liked learning. That is my “secret” to my good grades; I love to learn. It’s just something about getting knowledge and being able to learn new things that makes me really excited. And learning, for me, doesn’t stop at the classroom.

Rhetorical Analysis Of Mr. Graff

- Mr. Graff was very unclear in his intents of his argument of intellectualism, its ability to be applied to “street smart” topics, and why it is important for an academic scholar to solely focus on one or the other. I personally believe after reading his views that he does agree on the importance of street smarts in real world concepts, but any further than that we begin to see differently. It is very hard for a school system to cater to every student, in every aspect. It’s just not feasible; as many individuals learn in their own ways, at their own pace, and may have heightened interests in particular subjects that another student may not find so interesting....   [tags: Education, High school, College, Teacher]
