This essay was written by a student in The Expository Essay I at HEROES Academy. This student was asked to write an expository essay on any topic related to education. The student formulated a question before researching and writing. How can the public school system incorporate the teaching of study skills for the most successful results in students?
Students learn multiple skills at public schools such as arithmetic, world history, and chemistry. Almost every field of work and study is covered by public schools, but there is one essential skill that students lack, study skills. Study skills are the basis of all learning; it is learning how to learn in the first place. Most students make it through at least a few grades where all they have to do is complete busy-work to get an A+. However, as schooling goes on, these same students are the ones failing their classes due to lack of knowing just how to study. Since they were not taught skills like taking notes, time management, and test prep beforehand, they have no idea how to get their grades up, understand more of the information presented to them, and be overall successful students. Plus, study skills show students how they can learn, so once they understand how to go about tackling a subject, they will be able to learn anything they desire. Schools must incorporate the teaching of study skills to correspond to different learning styles; however, they should also teach the skills at the appropriate age.
This essay was submitted by a student in "The Expository Essay I" at HEROES Academy. The student was asked to respond to the question, "Why do you write?" in the format of a personal essay.
There can be many reasons why people write. It can be for fun or relaxation. It can be to inform or spread awareness. It can also be for the sake of writing an essay for school or college assignment before the due date so your parents don’t yell at you loud enough to make you deaf. Well, I do not write just because it’s homework and I have to submit it by the due date. I assure you that I have somewhat legitimate reasons to why I write on a frequent basis.
I started writing when I was in kindergarten because it was a required assignment, but I never really enjoyed writing as much as I do now. At the time, I thought writing was extremely easy, so it started to become pretty redundant -- especially with the boring, repetitive format that was taught in school. I saw new events in life and experienced them,
This essay was submitted by a student in "The Expository Essay I" at HEROES Academy. The student was asked to respond to the question, "Do you believe that parents should limit children's access to video games?"
If one walks into a Game-Stop, they are bound to see shelves filled with various video games, from Hello Kitty Kruisers to Fortnite, and almost all of those games would have an age rating on the back to determine who the video game’s content is suited to. There are six main video game ratings recognized by the Entertainment Software Rating Board: Early Childhood, Everyone, Everyone 10+, Teen, Mature, and Adults Only (Game Rating Information, n.d.). An informed and responsible parent would make sure to buy their child age appropriate games, but even games meant for children can still prove to be harmful to the overall well-being of a child when played in excess. All parents must limit their child’s access to video games by only allowing them to play age appropriate games for a restricted number of hours, so their child may avoid the adverse effects video games have on their mental and physical health.
