If I were to describe this course to a friend I would say this class is more than what anyone expects and is extremely eye-opening. It is not like a normal studies class, where it has boring content. It has content that is insightful and allows you to really think about the issues at hand. I would encourage a friend to take it because it is not only a fun class but very informative. I would prepare them for the reality of this class. This class does not just touch the surface of issues we have in society, but it goes much deeper.
This year with Rasmussen has been a blast. There have been some bad and good moments throughout the school year. I will always remember how to use a comma, tier words and how to write an essay. These will be helpful in my future. There are many memorable learning skills that I have learned but there are also many things we could work on like making our groups more diverse, having more tests review and having an open class discussion for more opinions to be expressed. In this class there is always need for improvement, but also there are valuable learning skills that will be cherished.
Eighth grade was a difficult year for me, because I had a lot going on. I took my first high school class, which was Algebra I. This required more work outside of class than I was used to. On top of this, I took my other classes, which were also challenging at the time. As if this were not enough, I was involved in sports during every season. It was difficult to balance my time when I was this young, but I finally got used to it. Just when I thought things were going smoothly, I became ill with E. Coli 0157.
There was such a variety of topics covered in this course and I wish that I had taken it in a classroom instead of online. With this online course, I feel like the material went a little too quickly. If I were in a classroom setting, I feel that
Many schools structure their day better; our school should follow their example. I think that the first change to the day would be the amount of time spent at school. We should have a later start because kids will be well rested and more capable to learn easier. Another change would be a shorter day. We should have this because after long periods of time sitting still, kids get restless. Our school also needs better class options. For example, students should be able to play different instruments like the guitar during school hours. Another thing is that only core classes should be mandatory. Some kids do not enjoy drawing or painting so they shouldn't have to. Teachers are also too strict with passing periods. Our school should change passing period to be longer because people need to do stuff like go to the bathroom. Kids also need to have a little social break so they can let their
I would say that I like my classes better than I did last year esspecialy language arts. Other
Hey, well it would be nice if we had a cleaner environment. The trash is disgusting. There should be mandatory SAT and college readiness classes. Honestly, the workload could be heavier. The workload of this school is pretty light compared to that in my middle school and other competitive high
There is always something you can do to make your school better, and every single human has a different opinion on what it is. Some people think it is that we need more sports or certain new classes, but what I want will make everyone happy! Here is the what, why, how, and the cons of my change.
When I registered for this class I thought it was going to be totally different than what it actually is. I am not exactly sure why and I am definitely not disappointed. I have learned more about sexuality and myself in this class this semester than I have ever learned. I didn’t realize that there was more to what I was taught by my parents, school or even observations I have made throughout my life. Although some of the things I learned in this class I had the same prior knowledge but most of this material was all new for me. I appreciated this because I enjoy learning and understanding other people’s views. After learning this material I feel that it’s a class that everyone should take. The knowledge that is provided helps people understand
This class main purpose I felt was to try and solely scare us from having sex. The only topics discussed in this class were about sexually transmitted diseases. I never understand why my high school made this a mandatory class, this class was strictly saying don’t have sex its bad your going to die from disease. The only thing I took away from my four years at that high school was in religion class and that was that sex is a gift and it should come from free consent of both people in the act. I firmly believe this statement. There is a huge responsibility in sex as presented in the video of John Oliver. Instead of teaching and telling kids that sex is bad, why don’t we teach and make them understand the safety and responsibility that sexual intercourse comes
I am taking this class for many reasons. One, is that I really want to get out of my comfort zone and try new things throughout my Xavier career. Also, I wanted to meet new kids that I didn't get the chance to meet chance last year.
Students everywhere from elementary schools to high schools are expected to go to school everyday and sit through long strenuous hours of school. In source A they refer to this as "forced schooling: six classes a day, five days a week, nine months a year, for twelve years". Schools treat students as if they were robots and all have the exact wants and needs. Every is different and that setup doesn't work for everyone. This doesn't mean for schools to let students show up whenever they want, schools just have to be more leanant and let each students be an individual.
The experiences that I have had throughout the class have definitely helped me to grow as a person and shape my perspective effectively. There were tough moments during the GRC and even with class discussions. There was a lot to learn. Speaking of the Chilean mining rescue (Chilean mining rescue, 2012) was always an aspect of a course that gave me a good example of how to manage diversity in groups.
