In 5th grade, at Tobias elementary school, I always tried to befriend most of the new people because I knew how they felt when I was new....   [tags: Middle school, Elementary school, High school]

Transition from Elementary to Middle School

- Children confront many transitions throughout their lifetime that can be stressful. They face their first transition from home to school, elementary to middle school, middle to high school, and high school to college or work (Schumacher, 1998). However, the transition from elementary to middle school seems to be harder for adolescents due to the personal changes of puberty. Research suggests that roles, expectations, and responsibilities are the primary concerns of students (Akos, 2002). In order to make this transition easier, programs such as “blocking, shadowing, or buddies” need to be implemented the year preceding middle school and continue through the first year of transition....   [tags: Elementary Education, secondary education]

The reason why the government would stage such an event is to distract the public from other issues that the government is having at that time. The reason why the government staged this particular shooting is so that they can push to have greater gun control and promote more anti-gun laws....   [tags: Firearm, Rifle, Sandy Hook, Weapon]
