For incoming freshman who are attending to Oakland Unity, there are some things you need to know. Incoming freshmen need to be prepared for school by bringing folders and especially pencils. It's important for freshmen to bring materials school because teachers will not provide them. Since eighth grade is the last year for middle school, you would usually hang out with friends you've known for a long time. Unfortunately, when transferring to high school, friends will (or eventually) depart from you. So I recommend for incoming freshmen to try to make some new friends. Middle school grades and work were easy to achieve and weren't important back then, but now you're transferring into high school. High school is very hard and
In 1983, Raymond Carver introduced his short story “Cathedral” to the public. The first-person narrative takes place within the narrator’s home, where his wife is waiting upon the arrival of her blind friend Robert. The narrator, however, becomes more concerned about how Robert’s visit will affect him rather than enjoy the situation. Once Robert arrives, the narrator tries to understand the blind man, but he is unaware of what tasks Robert is capable of performing due to the narrator’s inability to “see”. In time, Robert shows the narrator the difference between looking and seeing through illustrations of a cathedral, drawn by the narrator with his eyes closed. “Cathedral’s” narrator exposes readers to anti-heroic views
Being a freshman can be quite intimidating, especially because you are at the bottom of the totem pole. You are worried about finding the right classrooms, impressing teachers, sometimes maintaining your grades. I can tell you from a senior standpoint that things aren’t as bad as they seem. Yes, teachers will pile on the homework once and awhile, but I promise you will survive. As graduation day is approaching fast than I want, I have a little advice for freshman. Freshman you need to take your grades seriously because they will impact your future, you may think you know everything, but trust me you don’t, and most importantly is to have fun because before you know it you will be writing this same timed writing as I am right now.
With the end of the school year approaching, you'll need summer activities for your children. The Little Gym of Seattle, in Seattle, WA, the premier center for kids’ dance classes and gymnastics, has options for you. Summer camp is one way to stop the familiar cry, "I'm bored!"
Being an athletes is one of the best-paid jobs on Earth. Being that they are paid so much the cost for the consumer is very high. The prices of tickets and sports memorabilia have been steadily rising over the years. The average ticket prices for the NHL, MLB, NBA and NFL all rose 5% to 10% this year, according to Jon Greenberg, executive editor of Team Marketing Report. (Mihoces).
The cost of college tuition is continually on the rise and has placed many burdens on high school students as well as their families. Some of the burdens that are placed are a result of parents putting pressure on their children to earn scholarships. Some of the burden is a result of students putting pressure on themselves to earn scholarships. Then, there is the burden of high college debt once the student graduates. Is this pressure really helping our students or is it hurting them? The bottom line is college tuition is skyrocketing out of control and something must be done before it destroys our families and our children.
Each course syllabus that was given to a Summer Bridge student consisted of a brief course description, outline of the course’s goals and objectives, and a detailed summary of what is required for the class. However, some syllabi were different from others as some included things such as the professor’s e-mail address, phone number and office hours.
I think that should should be held all year long, for many reasons. The majority of students want their summer vacation, which is to be expected, but you really do have to look at the bigger picture; there are a lot more solutions to issues that come along with summer vacation. Year round schooling would help teachers with their teaching, the parents with financial issues, and the marks of students. This is really the best choice for everyone, especially when this way of learning boosts grades. The whole point of school is education; not summer vacation.
With NFL Players kneeling everywhere and soldiers feeling unappreciated, our country is in shock. It all started by a player named Colin Kaepernick, a quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, in 2016. This event persuaded numerous NFL players to continue this process. One by one, players all over the league began to protest to call attention to the issues of "racial inequalities and police brutality". With mixed reviews of this protest, I believe that kneeling during the National Anthem of the United States of America is disrespectful because it is abrasive, selfish, and hurtful. Also, I am not sure that all of those protesting in this manner know the true meaning of our national anthem or the flag that represents our freedom.
First, it’s the one tardy that rolls off your back like it’s no big deal, and then another and another. It goes on and on until you’re not allowed to come to school anymore because your principal told you that it seems like you don’t care anymore. You miss so many assignments and you’re too far behind, the days keep adding up. If seniors skip their senior year they miss opportunities they can’t receive elsewhere. You don’t get help with college options and scholarships, you spent your whole life to get there, and you don’t get to experience the senior memories you make while in high school.
Here are some things that I wish someone has taken the time to tell me at the beginning of my freshman year. Where to Live: You have to spend a year or two living in a HUD dorm. (aka Evans, Lewis, and Wilson) And although not technically a HUD dorm, Ferrin is also a wonderful choice for a freshman. Although these buildings may not be as flashy and offer you quite as many amenities as the newer dorms do, the camaraderie that you find there will be infinitely valuable to you during your four years. The newer dorms, Chase, Fulton, Nyland and Tavilla are wonderful for upper classmen who really need to focus on their studies. Their suite and apartment styles are really wonderful for later on when you have cemented friendships, but are not optimal

As I sat there and thought to myself what did everyone thing of me after hearing what I have done. “Taylor Bloom responsible for the deaths of 53 high school students. My head started to wander back to my high school days. In my sophomore year, I was bullied nearly every sing day by the stupid jocks. I started to hate myself so I decided to change my look. The next day I straightened my hair, put a black skirt on, and a white button up shirt with some heels, I left a few of the buttons on my shirt unbuttoned. I was making my way up to the school, I saw all eyes on me even the jocks could not take their eyes off of me. WAS I BECOMING POPULAR? Two weeks later I was the most popular girl in South Lake High. I had a tall, handsome boyfriend and my two new best friends Karli and Rebecca. Everyone wanted to be like me, everyone loved me or as I should say “worshipped me”. Until one night at a party I got super intoxicated and ended up doing things I probably shouldn’t have. That next day everyone was talking about it and all eyes were on me not that I am complaining, but it was not a good look they were giving me… they all knew what I had done that previous night. I did not show up for school the rest of the semester in fear I would lose my reputation so I started getting homeschooled.
Having escaped rule from a tyrannical British government, the United States was founded on ideals of freedom and equality for all people. These fantasies of universal egalitarianism turned out to be merely that: fantasies. American history is full of stories of the oppressed struggling to get the rights they deserve and of the controversy over these issues that consequently ensues. “The Hypocrisy of American Slavery” by Frederick Douglass and “We Shall Overcome” by Lyndon B. Johnson are two speeches made confronting two of these issues. Douglass’s speech, delivered in 1852, condemns the institution of slavery and maintains that slaves are men and are therefore entitled to freedom. Johnson’s speech, on the other hand, was written in 1965 and discussed the civil rights movement. In it, he implored local governments to allow all American citizens, regardless of race, to vote. Despite the significant gap in time between these two addresses, both speakers use similar persuasive techniques, including ethos, pathos, and parallelism, to convince their audience that change needs to be implemented in America.
