People will often tell you that they want to be rich or famous when they grow older, how will that be possible without the proper education and schooling? Many people dream of being an entrepreneur or a lawyer and they believe that it is possible to be one of those things out of thin air. It’s not. Often times most businesses want to see a degree or a diploma to even consider you for a job. However, there are many advantages of attending college. The advantages of attending college is never ending but can include incessant opportunities.
According to Laurie Futterman, “In addition to empowering practical skills, electives can help students find hidden talents or passions. In fact, several studies show that students are more likely to get a degree or major in a course they took as an elective.” Currently, there is a great debate happening about middle schools should offer electives. Some people believe electives help students in many different ways. Yet others believe that electives are a waste of money. Middle Schools because students are able to develop skills such as communicating in a different language so a doctor can understand what the patient is saying so they can help them, music can be used as therapy for patients, and art helps your brain be creative.
Life is a fascinating song, so who will be in charge of the lyrics? Of course you! So does the selection of the course. Students should be allowed to choose their courses to improve their course’s efficiency, gradually become professional in their field and struggle to be independent. First,
In recent years, the majority of students enrolled in dual credit classes at Carrizo Springs High School, specifically the English class, have shown that they are not prepared for the workload and expectations of this college level class. Consequently, many of these students end up dropping the course after the first semester and find themselves in overcrowded “regular” English classes. If these students had received proper preparation and instruction in writing prior to their senior year and enrollment in ENGL 1301 Composition and Rhetoric, they would have been more successful in dual credit English, upper division courses, and future careers.
With taking the regular United States history class, I feel that I would not be pushed and have any expectations put on me to do my very best, even though I know I would try my hardest on every assignment regardless on the course title. Freshman year was very easy for me and I did not have a lot of work to complete, especially not having multiple assignments each night, but I am ready to receive more work in order to prepare for the next couple of years of high school. Also, having a more challenging class with a heavier workload will prepare me for college and the difficult classes that I will have to take then.
There are three downfalls to taking these CIS classes: pressure on extracurricular activities, later nights, and increased stress. To start off with, these college classes are often not the only focus in a high school student’s life. They may be in sports, clubs, and family activities, while in college, they are there to learn, maybe an intramural sport or club here or there, but the primary focus is education, and for good reason. College classes require a lot of time and effort in order to be as successful as one would be in high school classes. Another con of college classes in high school is the late nights put in to accommodate for one’s extracurricular activities and coursework time. Late nights are often the theme at college, meaning high schoolers taking college classes will feel the same burden, on top of such late nights, sports, and their other extracurricular can push those already late nights to very early mornings. The last negative side of taking college level courses in high school is the significant increase of stress levels experienced. Stress on all levels are experienced by those who are taking CIS classes, whether it originates from the workload, pressure to do well, or not enough time in the day, stress is almost present in everyone who takes CIS
Last year I took a few classes at Columbus State Community College. There were definitely some changes that I had to make so my life could still run smoothly. Some of the things that changed were my extracurricular activities. I had to swim less often than before because I had
Because I am a returning student, I know that college will be challenging for me. One challenge that I am facing I am a returning student it is my second year at TNCC I am trying really hard in my classes. The challenges that I am having are trying to save up money for gas in my car because sometimes the gas price will go up and it can be a lot of money to have a full tank of gas. Making sure thatI have enough to get to school every day. I have enough to get to school every day.I have enough to get to school every day. To get a lot of sleep on weekdays so I can be ready for class the next day
Introduction At some point in the life of a high school student, community college becomes an option when applying to colleges. In some cases for those looking to further their education past high school it is still an option, even to students who are already in college. However, not everyone is able to see the benefits of attending a community college. Somehow in the past millennia, community college somehow gained the reputation of being a punishment for things such as having bad grades in high school, sometimes due to things the student can’t control. It is my hope that I will be able to change this opinion of community college and actually encourage the idea that community college can help students to improve their grades and get
Community college was created to develop and prepare highly skilled, qualified students to involve in the workforce to make the economy develop and grow successfully. Students from diverse background can benefit from attending a Community college. For example, community college offers quite a few general classes or remedial classes that a four year university would not offer and students are able to pay less money to take any courses that are necessary for them to complete their degree or certification.
Leaving the summer break in the school year helps relieves stress from students. Their stress would be lowered because they would have more time to relax at home and without having school on their mind. They would also have experience an abundance of new, fun memories with family and friends and time for their hobbies.
Life is full of decisions, which are both easy and hard. My parents' stories of escaping persecution from a
I took a risk when I decided to apply for College of Southern Nevada High School. Taking classes that counted towards both high school and college credit appealed to me, but I knew that the courses would be demanding. I’ve had setbacks, but I’ve also had triumphs.
At first I didn't know we only needed to take three classes a quarter and when I found out I thought to myself “man if I'm only going to be taking three classes a quarter, college is going to be a peace of cake” but soon I realized that would not be the case. All of my teachers required me to do outside work from the classroom. I started becoming overwhelmed with school work and soccer at the same time since I was part of the mens soccer team. But at the end of the quarter I managed
One of the greatest things about early college in my opinion, is the level of difficult learning that comes along with it. Having taken an AP class I am now more familiar with the speed that a college course progresses, very fast. Along with these classes progressing very quickly, a college student is forced to take in a huge amount of information. These factors create an environment in which a student such as myself has to be very focused on what they are learning, and must study the material further in order to fully grasp all of it. Along with an AP courses, I have always taken honors classes, which leads me to believe that I am prepared to encounter the speed of college classes.
