    Bradley Bourbonnais Community High School and many other High Schools do programs called Freshman Advisory and P.E. Leaders. These programs are designed to help the freshman understand high School and the problems they face. They focus on drugs, drinking, sex, and studying habits. The program directors all say these are the most important topics to cover because those are the topics that most freshman and ever-older students have a problem understanding. They wanted a program that made it easier to say no to drugs, drinking, and sex, but yes to studying. For Freshman Advisory Program the juni

    Perception

    1266 words, 6 pages

    When we think of perception, reality is constructed. Most social scientists agree that the world we know isn’t “out there.” Rather, we create our reality with others through communication (DeCapua, 2007; O’Brien, 2005). The attention is mainly focused on how perception affects communication through standpoint theory, metacommunication, self-serving bias, halo effect, and perception checking. Social influence within our culture and surroundings plays a powerful position in shaping perception. Our perceptions are linked to our worldview and history, and it might be possible to see something t

    Senior Reflection

    I have been in an educational environment for 12 years now and there have been several events that I have experienced. Most of these experiences have been very interesting. I attended Alexander Young Elementary School for kindergarten through sixth grade and then move on to Miller Junior High School for seventh and eighth grade year. The transition that that required was a huge experience for me to undergo. I was used to a smaller environment, with a smaller group of peers. During my duration at Miller Junior High School I had both gained friends and lost them. These are some of the occurr

    Finishing First And Last

    1771 words, 8 pages

    Were you aware that the number of students graduating early from high school is dramatically increasing every year? Through the implementation of advanced classes, extra-credit courses, and rigorous schedules, students are more readily able to receive the premature satisfaction of graduating. It is said that those who graduate early are attaining a “head start” on life, and are often more successful than those who complete the high school education process the traditional way. When a student graduates early from high school, through means of added study and greater intelligence, it is often

    Senioritis And Motivation

    2060 words, 9 pages

    Senior year is finally here; a time to relax and have fun before the next step in our lives. Not so fast! This common attitude affecting high school seniors is known as senioritis. Senioritis is the absence of motivation and effort by school seniors as evidenced by tardiness, absences, and lower grades (Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary). Senioritis not only has a strong impact on student performance in high school, but it also has a large impact on college bound students. Nearly one-third of students entering college require remedial help (Mrozowski, 2001). Even worse,

    Implications Of Self Perception On Moral Reasoning

    2197 words, 9 pages

    Originally I had planned on studying the implications that one’s identity within a community had on moral reasoning, but after discussing my ideas and thoughts with my peer group they advised me to take another route due to the fact that it had the possibility of being a very confusing and difficult study. With that in mind we discussed other options. I wanted to do a study that I could directly relate and involve youth ministry because I’m involved with youth on a regular basis. Another thing I wanted to do was to find something within a youth group that could possi
