Academically Adrift Response

...Date: 23 January 2013 To: Ms. Barbara Bolt, Instructor From: Linh Le Subject: Response Memo Assignment The following document is a response to Bill Gates’ review of the book Academically Adrift that raises questions and issues about U.S. education system. Gates’ Point of View Bill Gates’ review of Academically Adrift was very thought provoking. I liked that he was not bias and did not just lean towards one side of the argument but equally expressed his thoughts of the book and the education system in general. It made me question why and how our education system gets to this point where students are falling behind in critical thinking, complex reasoning and writing skills. Bill Gates supported his argument with details and data from the book. He mentioned that the “dismal results presented in the book were based on a standardized test that asked students to make practical decisions.” I think his comments are relevant because his opinions are based on what was mentioned in the book. For example, Gates mentioned “how the authors gathered thousands of data points and different variables” that are “supposed” to explain why learning is so limited, but those numbers did not make much difference. My Background I decided to go to college because I want to have a stable future. I wanted to be able to get a decent job to support my family and me. My parents have worked very hard to bring my siblings and I to the United States to receive a better education...

Academically Adrift

...student feel they need those courses, but for each its own. I would hate to have to pay a lot of money for classes I feel I don’t need. Richard Arum and Josipa Roksa, Academically adrift “ Colleges and universities, for all the benefits they bring, accomplish far less for their students than they should,” the former president of Harvard University, Derek Bok, “ without being able to write well enough to satisfy their employers(Arum&Roksa1). I feel that if a student goes to school for a major that leads them to employment that deal with writing a lot, they are in the wrong field. If you was not a good writer in a public school or did not like to write, do not go in to a field depends on writing skills. That’s like I do not like math, I will not go to school for any major that deals with math. College is just a repeat of what you learned in high school. That goes back to colleges are about that money, that’s their business. In recent cohorts of students, Barbara Schneider and David Stevenson have described the prevalence of “drifting dreamers” with “high ambitions, but no clear life plans for reaching them.” These students”have limited knowledge about their chosen occupations, about educational requirements, or about future demand for these occupations. They enter college, we believe, largely academically adrift. I kind of agree with what Barbara Schneider and David Stevenson is saying. I would not say all, but majority of them have limited knowledge about their chosen......

...observation and reflection, abstract conceptualization and active experimentation. This is in direct contradiction to the above suggestion. I also know that as one ages, he continues to learn and become “street wise”. This is particularly true of students who are not so academically inclined. I must therefore be among the practitioners who clamour for tests that will effectively develop the strengths of students while addressing their needs. It means that more of us teachers will be keener to know the ethos of our class in order to effectively plan for each student. As a result, we will teach from the learner’s syllabus (individualized lesson based on student’s needs and strengths) instead of teaching the standardized curriculum (that is high – handedly written by mostly novices to the reality of the education system who only have letters behind their names as qualification to sit on such committees) that is geared only for a particular examination at a the end of a certain period. Each teacher must be determined to change and redirect their students’ intent to learn as we seek to disprove and re – focus them to thinking positively that their gender, culture, class and race does not determine who they are academically. However, what defines them is how willing they are to defy the odds and perform brilliantly in their academic life, even amid learning challenges. As for me, I will continue to teach students, not the curriculum and endeavour to help them make a......

Children Who Exercie Perform Better Academically

...Running head: CHILDREN WHO EXERCIE PERFORM BETTER ACADEMICALLY Children Who Exercise Perform Better Academically Than Their Sedentary Obese Peers Michael Trollinger Grand Canyon University 21st Century Skills: Information and Communication Literacy UNV-104 Alli Holladay January 25, 2014 Children Who Exercise Perform Better Academically Than Their Sedentary Obese Peers The combination of a sedentary lifestyle and obesity causes more hazards for children than the obvious health issues such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. The not so obvious and often overlooked symptom of lack of exercise and obesity is poor academic performance. Therefore, researchers and school administrations are starting to recognize the importance of having children participate in a regular exercise program as early as the fourth grade, to help them acquire both academic and cognitive success. Students who participate in exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, three days a week achieved better grades, attendance, and fewer behavior problems (Palmer, Miller, & Robinson, 2013, ¶ 3). According to the CDC “… physical activity can have an impact on cognitive skills and attitudes and academic behavior, all of which are important components of improved academic performance. These include enhanced concentration and attention as well as improved classroom behavior.”(Center For Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2010, p. 1) Due to biological, chemical and other neurological changes that......

How Can We Fix Academically Failing Schools

...children caught up to grade level math, reading, and science test scores. After 12 years about 82 percent of all the nations’ schools are considered to be failing academically (Dillon).What is a failing school? A failing school is a school where the majority of its students failed to do well on standardized tests that were provided during the school year. The problem is that these schools are found all over the United States. What can be done? How can we fix these failing schools? Who is to blame? Most people would blame the teacher first and foremost, but I disagree. In this paper I will discuss what we can do to fix schools that are failing academically. I will argue that adding early childhood education classes, changing curriculum, and modifying standardized tests are all effective steps in correcting the problems that failing schools continually face. I will support my argument by using the views of authors such as Alfie Kohn and his ideas of making the curriculum more entertaining to make learning easier, Fred Lunenburg’s ideas that preschool is a critical point to achieve success later on in school, Sam Dillon’s views about how the No child left behind act has hurt more public schools than helped them, and other researchers as well. One step I feel that could help with fixing schools that are failing academically is by adding free early childhood education to public schools across the United States. Early child hood education could play a key role, because it gives......

Using Material from Item a and Elsewhere, Assess the View That the Main Function of the Education System Is to Reproduce and Legitimise Social Inequalities

...socialisation and therefore, serves to reinforce inequality. The dominant culture (the elite) established the standards of excellence within our schools and therefore generally possessed those elements in order for academic success, e.g., Cultural Capital. Cultural capital is the culture of the elite, the elite decide the curriculum therefore providing their own success in a structure created by themselves for themselves. According to Bordieu, this again, reinforces a reproduction of class. The education system maintains the class structure by making it appear that the success of the elite and failure of the working class was an objective procedure. The working class fail academically not down to inadequacies but because of a lack of cultural capital. Some members of the working class have and do succeed academically and later in employment, but according to Bordieu, this reinforces the system further by suggesting the working class fail due to incompetence. Bordieu has been criticised by Jenkins (1992) who said that workers accept inequality, not because they see it as justified but because they have no say in the matter. Bordieu assumes that education does not provide opportunity for the working class. He paints a circular picture of class reproduction and implies that social and cultural change is impossible when it quite obviously isn’t. Society and our culture reflects a very different picture of that seen today in comparison with, for example, 1960’s. The skills......

Strategies for Blacks and Latinos to Succeed Academically

...Strategies for Blacks and Latinos to succeed academically, this article published the findings of Succeeding in the city a report form the New York City Black and Latino Male High School Achievement study. The study conducted face-to-face interviews with over 400 successful minority students from local colleges and high schools. The primary focus was to identify what motivated successful students to defeat failure barriers. In the interviews, students credited several factors to their success: family expectations, relationships with caring adults in the school, ambition to overcome poverty and their ability to elude gangs as the most important. As a Latino immigrant, public school graduate, urban educator and parent engagement advocate, this topic speaks to me in a very personal way. I would also cite the aforementioned as important factors in my success. I believe family and home relationships are crucial to the potential success of our minority students. I have been teaching regular and ESL students for 13 years; I have no doubt that our families want the best of their children and want them to succeed; the disconnect lies on how minorities define and measure success as opposed to middle class America. I can certainly speak for my family and the Latino community I represent. Many Latino parents believe that learning the language and securing a job is being successful. The majority of Latino families come from poor and oppressed third world countries; therefore it is......

Professionally, young adults will be equipped the scope of knowledge about future job-related skill. All these advantages combine to make a strong case for followers this trend . Nevertheless, there are also dangers involved in gap year takers. Academically, the main Drawback is that some students who don’t resist the temptation of money may ignore their study duty in the long run. When students are accustomed to working or travelling, they often feel that they have no need to pursue tertiary education and feel satisfied with unskilled job and manual careers. It cannot be denied that they have to encounter an unstable life due to the lack of knowledge and qualifications for a better life . All thing considered, it can be claimed that this is clearly a complex issue as there are significant merits and demerits to this outstanding trend. I am inclined to believe that it would be better not to skip a year off to work or travel if young students are not enough mature and even if they have no specific plan to avoid potential risks that may ruin their future...

...We all know stealing is wrong. Be it candy from a store or money from someone’s pension fund, stealing is stealing. Plagiarism is no different. By plagiarizing you are stealing someone’s thoughts, words or ideas. It is a crime in my opinion more reprehensible than most. You have stolen the essence of someone else’s hard work, the brainchild of their very conscious thought and that which gives credence to their own intellect. Not only is it morally wrong, it is also academically wrong. It goes against Penn States core principal of academic integrity. Without integrity your word and reputation will suffer and will likely follow you throughout both your academic and professional career.

...and class, the apparent education achievement gap and possible solutions to closing the gap. Arguments A, B and C note that there is an apparent achievement gap in education. The gap is more noticeable in learners from multipart urban settings, where there are many minority inhabitants. The current education requirements, of ensuring students pass benchmark tests; fail to promote equity because they do not put into deliberation the desires of students that are not academically inclined. However, it appears that learners termed as not academically inclined are students of color; hence, the need to set a standard curriculum, which is both thorough and culturally relevant as suggested by speaker A (Case). Speaker A provides a better argument when compared to B and C. The speaker begins by noting that instructing students on how to excel in benchmark tests fails to prepare their participation in a global economy. The speaker also notes the lack of equity especially for students of color termed as not academically inclined. In conclusion, A provides a solution to closing the achievement gap by setting a rigorous and applicable curriculum. Though speaker B provides a solution, which involves setting the standard, the arguments do not seems to realize the lack of equity especially towards students of color.

Name: Institution: Should Sports Classes be Dropped in Secondary School so Students can Concentrate on Academic Subjects? Exercises and sports are important in the secondary school curriculum because they create the much needed break for students from the monotony and stress of academic work. Sports also encourage the students to remain healthy and avoid sicknesses like obesity. A lot of research has shown that students perform better academically when they are exposed to physical activity, sports therefore has a direct influence on the cognitive skills and academic behavior of students which are important for academic performance, additionally, sports in the students curriculum has shown it to enhance attention, concentration, and improved behavior in the classroom (Trudeau & Shephard 2008). Basch (2011) claims that exercise directly affects the functioning of the brain by; increasing the flow of oxygen and neurotransmitters to the brain and supporting neurotrophins which are in charge of neurons which are responsible for memory and learning. He asserts that physical activity influences the development and behavior of the brain by improving attention span, information processing, retrieval and storage, in addition, sports also reduce cravings and enhance positive effects.
