  • Adolescent Behavior In School - 1,692 words
    ... omfortable. The girl who was being "pushed" was blatently against the idea, her face was red, and I even headed her say several times, "I really don't want to do this, I feel like a jerk." Then she tried to bargain with her friends by saying, "I'll talk to him after Social class, I swear." But still the girls continued to drag her over to this boy. Then came the words I was waiting to hear, "You don't want to be the only one at this dance without a date, only the dorky girls go to the spring dance dateless!" Eventually this girl did end up going over to the boy outside. Another example of peer pressure I observed was within a group of boys. About five or six boys were "daring" one boy to ...

  • Argumetative Single Gender Schooling - 855 words
    Argumetative Single Gender Schooling Single Gender Schooling: A better learning environment For years, educators have searched for better and more effective ways of teaching. Their efforts have resulted in the specialization of instruction according to the specific needs of different students. We have seen therefore, specific classes for dyslexic children, special instruction for visual learners, teaching methods, which target non-native English speakers etc. At a more basic level however, the separation of our educational efforts by gender, has proven to be controversial at best. I believe that grouping young students according to sex, provides a better learning environment and is more cond ...

  • Biography Malcolm X - 1,023 words
    Biography Malcolm X Malcolm X The name Malcolm X still stirs emotions of fear and hatred in many Americans. When he was murdered in the Ballroom in Harlem on February 21, 1965, he was world-famous as the angriest black man in America. This is true because unlike Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X advocated freedom for blacks by any means necessary. For him, even the use of violence was a viable solution to fight racial discrimination. Because of such views some people still associate Malcolm X with the Black Panther movement of the sixties which they believe was a radical and violent organization. But portraying Malcolm X simply as a violent black activist fails to represent the whole picture ...

  • Birth Control Education - 1,913 words
    ... who have to tell parents that their child is pregnant or will die from the AIDS virus. This is by far not a job that they enjoy doing. They want desperately for the AIDS epidemic to be terminated, and to stop seeing so many children diagnosed with a STD and become impregnated. Like the parents, they too are taxpayers and voters, but they have one more ball in their court. They are experts in this field, and have the ability to alter peoples views by simply telling them what they see every day. These are the people the school board will call and ask the opinion of while trying to decide an appropriate course of action. Unhappily this is a minor issue to doctors, whom are faced with cance ...

  • Computer Communications - 951 words
    Computer Communications Communications. I could barely spell the word, much less comprehend its meaning. Yet when Mrs. Rubin made the announcement about the new club she was starting at the junior high school, it triggered something in my mind. Two weeks later, during the last month of my eighth grade year, I figured it out. I was rummaging through the basement, and I ran across the little blue box that my dad had brought home from work a year earlier. Could this be a modem? I asked Mrs. Rubin about it the next day at school, and when she verified my expectations, I became the first member of Teleport 2000, the only organization in the city dedicated to introducing students to the informatio ...

Everyday students engage in sexual activity, many of them with out condoms. This simple act jeopardizes these students futures and possibly their lives. An increasing amount of school systems are starting to combine messag ...
