It has come to me, "Pops-Soda", that I think that I have figured out why most kids with bad grades, make the grades they do. I understand that the
grading scale is based on A,B,C,D, and F. I believe that it all comes down to the words of encouragement, and discouragement. Not only that, but
also the kind of teacher and what goes on in the class they are in. I do believe that a students grades do not have anything to do with homework.
When a student is discouraged. Whether it be given a bad grade, or told that they can do better and that they are doing bad, the student tends to get
bad grades. Here is an example. My worst subject is Geometry. Well, my teacher is really boring, she has a mono-tone voice and everything is
bookwork and she doesnt show us her own examples. My next class is a telecommunications academy, in which I ace everything. It is very hands on, and
there is alot of encouragement in that class.
When a student gets discouraged, they tend to think that they do not belong in that subject, therefore, burning out on the subject. Same as when the
student gets tremendous amounts of homework to do, the student is so jam-packed with homework, that there brain stresses and then they get work
When a stuent is encouraged and praised apon his or her own work, the student strives to reach farther and grab more knowledge. If the student has
little homework or none at all, they tend to do better in the classes that they once were not good at.
These are my reasonings and I hope that they maybe help some people out there.
