Whether it’s math or science, geography or grammar, teachers are creating new ways to teach kids about these subjects. But when animals get involved, things get out of hand. Between fish, hamsters, and other small critters, the options are endless on what animal could be chosen to suffer through a long 180 days. At first glance, having a class pet is one thing every child wishes for, but after scratching the surface, is it really the way to learn? Class pets should not be allowed in schools due to the false impression kids get on animals. Now some argue that a class pet makes school enjoyable due to the great learning environment it generates, but it really only teaches kids the wrong way to care for animals.
Pets. Pets are frequent in homes all over the world, but should they be allowed in schools? They are many different points of view on this subject but, many parents, teachers and kids believe that “pets are only a distraction and that is to hard for kids to care for a pet” but actually they are quite the opposite. Pets in the classroom believe it or not teach kids good skills and lets children benefit from interacting with these pets. Because of these reasons I think that pets should be allowed in classrooms.
Have you ever wondered what a reptile or mammal could do to your learning? 2.5 million children already have pets in their classroom across North America. All the students in North America need pets in their classroom because they benefit students. Well, I know what you're probably thinking where do the pets go during school breaks and holiday and the answer is they get abandoned. Most classrooms have sign up sheets to take the pets over weekends and holidays so the pet doesn’t get abandoned but, get a loving home. Pets should be allowed in classrooms because they teach students responsibility, pets help kids build empathy, and pets in classrooms will help the kids who don’t get the chance to have a pet at home.
Innocent canines are spending over half of their short lifespan alone and bored because of school! Dogs, man's best friend are treated unfairly, and are not allowed in schools. These dogs are bored and alone all day because kids and parents are gone. Dogs are living things too, they should be able to do the same things as us humans, and dogs lives are not any less valuable than our lives. Dogs should be allowed in schools because they relieve stress, they would make school fun, and it would help dogs live longer.
Yes, we should have classroom pets they can help reduce stress levels in the classroom. A classroom pet is a good idea, it can make the classroom more comfortable for your student. A study shows that when a dog is around students have much lower stress levels. A teacher states,“ when the dog is around students are more happy and ready to learn”. If your students are ready to learn you get more cooperation and focus. Which would help me to get a much better grade than the students without a pet. If you ever pet a pet your brain calms down , you feel comfort and even extravagant empathy for your animal.
Drugs are something that everyone in their life have to deal with. Many parents would feel more comfortable with officer’s drug dogs wondering around the school, just to be safe. In some ways, this could be very beneficial for the school to do just so everyone knows there going to be safe and ok. Having a safe environment to go to school is would be the ideal school, but most schools now and days are filed with druggies who haven’t been caught. A good way they could get caught is by these drug dogs. By getting caught it might teach them a lesson on why they shouldn’t do drugs. Also by getting caught it can help them get better health again. Overall there are some good reason on why the drug dogs should come to our schools.
Having pets in schools is not a good idea for students or teachers. Do you think that having pets in the classroom can impact on students positively or negatively? I believe that having pets in the classroom brings negative effects. Some reasons that pets should not be in schools include, they distract people in the classrooms while learning, students could have certain allergies that need to be maintained, having a pet in the class could cause serious harm to the animal, and it can also have effects on students and teachers in schools because of how time consuming it is. Some people think that pets make students more responsible but in my experience, it is definitely not a good idea for pets to
I would argue against the housing provider’s “no pet policy” by invoking laws that support the physically and mentally disabled. Under the “The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)” and the “Fair Housing Act (FHAct)”, service animals by law are excluded from “no pet rules” (ADA and FHAct n.p.). The purpose of the exclusion is that service animals are trained to perform specific tasks to improve a person with special needs quality of life (ADA and FHAct n.p.). According to ADA and FHAct service animals such as guide or signal dogs provide support to the vision and hearing impaired to improve upon their quality of life (ADA and FHAct n.p.). Furthermore, service animals are used by a person with special needs for protection, as well as
I live on campus, in the Commons, and I have a puppy! Because students with physical or mental disabilities are allowed to have an emotional support animal, my puppy is allowed to live with me on campus. Emotional support animals are an amazing and beneficial accommodation to people with disabilities, but they could be just as helpful to regular students as well. All students living on college campuses should be allowed, if they choose, to have an animal because of the emotional support, responsibility, and health benefits that pets provide.
There is a reason people say dogs are a man’s best friend. When I was younger, I was always afraid that some “bad guy” would break into my house. This fear caused me to have nightmares and lose sleep. Then I got a dog and I felt so much safer! Right now there is a case going to the Supreme Court to decide if service dogs should be allowed in schools. Service dogs should be allowed in schools because they help people with disabilities, they provide comfort to people, and because dogs are frequently used in fields of medicine. If I found comfort with a dog, so can students with disabilities.
In addition having a pet at home improve kids School attendance because they have better overall health and have less sickness and non pet owners. Dogs also make stressful situation easier to handle for kids. Finally dogs help children improve their reading ability a lot of children don't like to read out loud to people because they are afraid of messing up. But studies show reading out loud to dogs help the children's reading level and reading capability because dog don't judge if you messed up while you are reading. In conclusion a dog is a very important feature in a child's life.
If a student is a visual learner then using animals for educational purposes would make vet school easier for them. When a vet student graduates vet school they will go get a job where they will have to do operations daily. Although using simulations and props will help educate the students they will not experience the full feeling and problems that can occur in a surgery. (¨Vet School (Nat Geo Wild) Race for hope¨). If a sick animal goes into the vet and they are assigned a new veterinarian and they don't know how to handle the animal, how will that work? Models, mannikins, and simulations are often used for projects in vet schools, but they don't always accurately represent the animals. (¨Animals in Teaching¨). While in vet school will go through many procedures such as spay/neutering programs, and feral cat clinics. To complete vet school to complete ability you will have to do several different studies that will involve the use of animals (F. Ellen Netting ,Cindy C., Wilson, John C. New) . Many people do not realize the importance of using animals in vet schools procedures .As said by Dr.McCurnin,
Therapy dogs can visit many different places. This includes schools, daycares, group homes, rehabilitation centers, hospitals, and nursing homes. (What is the Difference Between a Therapy Dog vs. a Service Dog) Therapy dogs are often called “miracle workers” in the classroom. Recently, some therapy dogs were used to comfort witnesses of school shootings. Also, some colleges keep therapy dogs for their students. The idea of therapy dogs on a college campus is to help students slow down and cope with anxiety. They can also help to be a break from the pressure of school. Yale Law School uses therapy dogs because law school can be very stressful. (The Benefits of Therapy Dogs in Classrooms and on College Campuses)
Owning and caring for pets is an extremely normal thing for people throughout the world. The love that millions of communities have for animals is huge and it brings a multitude of people together because of their common bond. Many studies have indicated that owning a pet can better the owner’s health, and even lengthen his/her life. Pets can be incredibly helpful for a variety of reasons making people agree that pets bring more enjoyment than dissatisfaction. Owning pets has become a very popular trend for a number of reasons, such as service, protection, and companionship.
June 15, 2016, I had finally understood the importance that dogs had on humans. Walking into Rescue Village on that beautiful Summer day, my heart was racing because I knew it was the day I could adopt my first rescue dog. This day made my life completely different from that point forward. I chose to adopt a dog and to care for her and I was now not only responsible for myself but for a helpless dog. According to the Animal Welfare Institute, I am not the only one who chose to take on the responsibility of a dog, “Sixty-two percent of all U.S. households – more than 72.9 million total – include one more companion animals” (Companion Animal). A companion animal is defined as, “… our best friends, confidents, and help make the family complete”
