In a recent survey 81% of students reported they were late to class because the passing period was too short and they either had to use the restroom or there class is too far away. Students should be able to have longer passing periods for restroom usage, and to have a little nutritional snack before the next class. If students had more time, they’d have time to get prepared for the next class. Lastly there would be less detention slips given out. Since they are so short students are upset because they are tardy and have to go to detention.
When I say time, I mean students getting to school on time, classes starting on time and transition time between classes. For some classes there is about a 10 minute gap between when class actually starts and when class is supposed to start according to the schedule. This leaves a lot of “free time” in between certain classes or inside of a classroom without nothing going on because the teacher has not started instructional time. As a student I love it, but as a principle I would feel as though the school is losing productivity with a teacher just sitting in another room or not even being there at all while the students loiter or just aimlessly wonder through the hallways or sit in front of the door. Another thing I find to be interesting is how some students leave during lunch to make sure they get to class on time while the teacher is still down the hill in the main building, I don’t take that class but what do the students do while they are up there and their teacher is down here? Do they go into the class room and just sit up there by themselves? Or do they do the same thing some of the students in the RVEC building do and just sit outside door. As a student I don’t know what goes on like that, but as a principle I would think that is another way lunch time transitions can be better managed so that the students and teachers are where they need to be when class needs to
Are School Days Too Long? With these long school days children don’t have much time to go out and be a kid. By the time children get home and finish all their homework, there really isn’t much time for sports or spending time with friends and family. Long hours of
“Why Kids Can’t Write” Sharing ideas and beliefs, free from consequences, is one of the most essential forms of freedom. Taking charge of individual beliefs and having the courage to share and support them is liberation at its best. From Common Sense by Thomas Paine to Silent Spring by Rachel Carson, words, and their resulting messages, have immense power to influence viewpoints and ideals, ultimately sparking change. However, words, and punctuation, come with risk; if the words and punctuation employed fail to clearly and concisely express the message, the message loses all meaning. Therefore, not only is the message behind the words important, but also the way in which the message is articulated.
To begin with, Middle school students should get short breaks.Kids hardly pay attention in class all the time because they tired very much.It would help to refresh their brain to think more and it would probably make them get a better grade. For example, kids sit 90 mins. In math and reading and it hurts, so I think kids could stretch or something like that.
The viewpoint I have always pride myself in having is seeing the true intelligence in people. In my mind, I do not measure a person’s intelligence based on the information they are “suppose” to know or on the grades they receive or even how they behave.
Students shouldn’t have homework because they can’t go hang out with their friends as much. Students have responsibilities outside of school that they have to take care of.
First, a short break will let the teachers grade and get caught up. It would give them time for a restroom break instead of them having to go during class and another teacher having to come in and watch us. It will also give the teachers time to have talks with kids that they can not say out loud during class and disrupt by going in the hallway.
Is school boring? Do you feel like you won’t learn anything for the future? I think kids need to learn life skills and learn how to survive alone. That’s why I think these three innovations would be perfect. The three innovations for Maize South Middle School would be a
Longer classes will stress out students who already dislike school! The stress will cause many students to freak out. If I remember correctly, teachers already spend more time at school than students, this time extension will make the adults stay at school until about five o'clock! One more thought is, What if a student has an activity after school that they do, for an example, my sister has choir and GA’s at church on Wednesday around five o’clock. If my sister had school until 4:30 she would not have much time to get homework done, eat dinner, prepare to leave, and get there in time! It is like asking to make her late to her activities that she
Schools seem to expect to their ever-diligent and eager students to go home to complete all of their homework and to study for all of their tests. After all, it is the student's fault if they perform poorly because they failed to use their own time to study. The perfect student receives good grades, do all of the assigned homework, and scores well on tests. This does not, and can not, realistically happen. How much time does a student realistically have? How much of that time is being fought over by different priorities? At times, there are assignments due the next day that require a couple hours of the students time when they only have a half hour after getting home late. Or maybe the student is just lazy. The point stands that the student will not always have the time or the will to continue to play the game of school when they are no longer in the building. If the student has no desire, or lost the desire, to educate themselves or practice ideas and processes in their limited after school hours then there is something horribly wrong in how schools go about educating their
One’s youth is considered to be approximately eight Very rarely do you see an adult advocate for less time spent in school. Ask any student, and one would receive a similarly unilateral answer, though supporting a different opinion. I advocate for this not out of laziness, but out of concern for the average teen. There are many problems with this proposal at first glance: how would one teach the curriculum in less time? How would one rearrange the school system to accommodate this radical proposal? I do not know the answers to these questions; I do not pretend to be an expert on education reform. I merely speak from the perspective of a student. What I can tell you is that sometime in the future, when I look back upon my youth, I will not remember the countless hours spent in the classroom, but instead the times I spent being a child, enjoying my
"I HATE Reading!" I have yelled, whispered, written and even thought this simple sentence a million times in my life. For as long as I could remember, I've always hated reading.
64% of students get stressed and overwhelmed by such long classes or too much work. Schools should make more breaks throughout the day because students get stressed, it will give your brain a break, and it won't overwork the students. For example, many students get frustrated or stressed during some
Kids would be less energetic in class. We could have five minutes in between class, to go to the bathroom and talk to friends. Kids won't have to go to the bathroom in the middle of class. Have you ever been in class trying to listen and the kid next is jumping up and down because the he has to go to the bathroom?
