On a bright July morning in a windowless conference room in a Manhattan bookstore, several dozen elementary school teachers were learning how to create worksheets that would help children learn to write. Judith C. Hochman, founder of an organization called the Writing Revolution, displayed examples of student work. Focusing on the fundamentals of grammar is one approach to teaching writing.
Too Much Homework in High School
ARGUMENTATIVE ESSAY: Consequences of too much Social Networking | c37barrerajanina
Due to technological advancements, the use of social networking websites have now become a necessity for almost everyone, especially to one of the most common users—the students. These may be done using gadgets such as smart phones, tablets, and computers, as long as internet is available. However, despite all these expediencies, the use of these websites may bring several detriments for students as well. Hence, the use of social networking websites may bring negative effects on the academic performance, health and fitness, and mentalities of the students. Whether the students are aware or not, the use of social networking websites can consume a big part of their time for academics which, in turn, may affect their academic performance negatively. This may be true—but only partially. In effect, these websites can be of distractions to students since most would rather enjoy the leisure of social networking than spend their time studying and becoming productive.
Should We Rethink How Long Students Spend in High School?
Last year I interviewed a few of my mature students and one of the things that struck me about how they worked was the length of time they spent on their essays. As teachers surely we should have some expectation of how much work we are asking for? One study of note looked at the essay writing strategies of a cohort of students over their degrees, which appears to note that students stick to whatever strategy ie how many drafts to do, if any they start with. This study did ask students to estimate how many hours they spent writing their essay including library research. There are a few threads on the student room forums asking this question and some interesting responses.
