I am proud with your essay “Living with Catholics”because I loved the way you explain about Gary Soto live.What he was doing in his live.
One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “In Living Up The Street Gary Soto talks about his life as a boy and his family and how they lived on Bradley Street.”I think this is a strong sentence because you explain what the book was about.Also I loved when you said that the book was about his life as a kid.
Introduction: This is an animation created on Scratch. The story centers around a boy who has to work at a gas station because he needs to make money to live at his house. He also attends a prestigious all-girls prep school, and its graduates have made fortunes and have big reputations throughout society. He is the only boy to have ever been accepted into the school, and he is heavily discriminated against. He is constantly late for class due to his job, yet he is the only one that is not forgiven.
In J.D Salinger’s book, The Catcher in the Rye, the author tells the story of an adolescent kid named Holden Caulfield that gets kicked out of his school and his weekend in New York. When he gets kicked out of his school, Pencey, he says his final goodbyes with fights and discussions, he doesn’t really have any friends they’re all too “phony” and can’t get along with them. Throughout the whole book he gets into scuffles or disagreements with a lot of people, everyone to him seems phony. He seems kind of lost throughout most of the book, not knowing what to do next.
Anxiety is the most frequent emotional symptom reported by dyslexic adults. Dyslexics become fearful because of their constant frustration and confusion in school. These feelings are exacerbated by the inconsistencies of dyslexia. Because they may anticipate failure, entering new situations can becomes extremely anxiety provoking.
One reason they are closing is because of a weakening economy. More people are unable to afford the tuition of the Catholic school. Personally, I have noticed this trend as well. More and more of my friends are leaving because the tuition is too much for their families. Another reason is that people are becoming more and more people are secular or are of a different faith. So for secularists, the religion class included in their children's curriculum doesn't matter to them.
From my experience in the Catholic school system (I have been attending Catholic schools from Kindergarten to 12th grade) some students, who were already Catholic, leave feeling dislike, or more dislike (depending on the individual), for the religion while other Catholics who leave the Catholic school feel the indifferent to it, like it, or like it more (again it depends). I want to do research on why this happens. Personally, I still like and believe my religion (although I don’t agree with everything), but others are “just done” with it.
I love this website, and a small handful of people do too. As a new comer to the website, I began pouring economic and social beliefs into this society as a purpose to make a change. Although this change will not be big, it will mean something to the young and fresh minds reading this on their phones and laptops. I always have been convinced by my teacher's actions that it was basically a site to post assignments and projects. And as far as I am disappointed, this site is nothing but that.
What is the first thing you think of when someone says the word "school"? People usually say stress, grades, brain numb, maybe even stupid or boring, but consider the reason why students may say that, although they are told many times that education is a privilege. Does this mean that our schooling system in the United States may be too loose on pressuring our students into academic achievement?
Today, school fame is mostly stacked upon athletics and sports. You can get really famous and popular in school by exceeding in sports, and as a non athlete and an all time musician, I really do see this difference between athletes and musicians and academic achievers. Now, most of this is caused by the looks and the student's natural interest into sports, but another lies on how schools may over favor athletes over others.
Their has been a long time debate on such a notorious question? Should we make school hours longer? Some people believe that having more hours of school could be to much pressure on a student, making them lose their focus and concentration after a certain period of time. Other people believe that having longer school days can help students get more work done, and help them catch up with the curriculum of other countries. After all, China has school hours from 7:30 A.M to 5:00 P.M, according to "Infoplease."
As schools develop, the way students has learned and been taught changed. From chalkboard to SmartBoards, books to laptops, students are now being taught digitally and subjects that would benefit them in the future. So as students do their homework and study, they work hard to accomplish their goals of what they wish to be in the future. However there’s a sacrifice that’s needed to help them with this. That sacrifice is sleep. Although they work hard, the looks on their faces shows how tired and exhausted their mind and body are due to lack of rest they need.
For my whole life teachers have always hammered into my head about how important doing well in school is. They claim that by doing well in school, you will equally do well or better off than others in life. This always made me think that I had to be at the top of my class to get into a good college and then work hard and later get a good job. But does that really matter? Does someone with a 4.0 GPA in high school earn more later in life than someone with a 2.4? One of my cousins always said "C's get degrees!" and I'm sure others have heard that as well. So which one is right?
In Psychology, my class is studying the teenage brain and teenage behavior; we began discussing REM sleep patterns and how teenagers should be getting nine to nine and a half hours a sleep a night- which to most of us, seems nearly impossible. As teenagers tend to have more positive brain activity after deep REM sleep, I’m curious to how academic performance among students and the school environment in general would change if the school start time was an hour later.

In James Baldwin’s “A Talk to Teachers,” Baldwins describes his views of society and education on his people, Black. In his writing, he points out the discrimination, and paradox of the way the school board work and the influence of society on the citizens and Negro children.
Baldwin criticizes the school for teaching students one thing, but expect them to do the other things. He writes:
In technology class, we were given an assignment for homework– it was to play a game online. Although from the thought of this you may feel that playing a game for homework is nonsense, this game was educational, and did open my eyes to real-world situations, as described while playing this game.
