As we first enter high school we are told that “you should take honors and ap classes.” Even our parents tell us this who hear it from other parents. This whole talk that gives us so much pressure and anxiety of entering high school is really not worth it. We enter high school and take the harder classes, until we receive a bad grade that would hit us hard and leads us to stop trying in school. If only wiser and more knowledgeable people would have told us that IT’S OK TO TAKE IT EASY in high school. We don’t have to take harder classes that would “kill” us in the future. There’s simply no point because what matters is that you should be happy with your life. Here’s a comic we made based of it. Enjoy.
I have noticed throughout my life that when the teacher gives back our graded test I never know what I have done wrong, or the worst case scenario, when the teacher doesn’t give back our test at all. Some teachers would give us a test, then grade it and put it on our grading system, without even tell us what our mistakes were. If tests are for students to prove themselves, then why can’t teachers help us by writing down what we have done wrong in order for us to do well on our final exam. Compared to just grading it and giving it to us clueless students. You may think that test corrections maybe the answer to my question but it isn’t. Reason is because first off, students might not get enough time to ask their teachers or classmates on what their mistakes were. Second, if a student missed a lot of problems they would have to spend a bunch of time to complete their test corrections, which leaves them sleeping late in order for them to complete their other homework. That ties it in for the third reason; students wouldn’t even bother doing their test corrections because it takes up too much time on their other homework. Therefore, it’s the teacher’s job to show us what we have done wrong, so that we are able to do better on other test or even on our final exam.
