I would rather read about most of these events than stand in a one hour class. Oh yeah, another bad part of school, I can usually do stuff a lot higher than my grade level and I am stuck listening to the teacher explain this stuff. I’d rather read about it rather than being stuck for people to finish this. I find comfort and books and would like to read them instead of listening to these 1 hour lectures. They cover almost EVERY subject if not all and I could still take quizzes and stuff with the knowledge I learned from these books and if it’s too low lecture time I guess. You’re forced into this, so if you don’t like it, too bad. I can read anything yet I am forced to sit and listen to these long lectures. I don’t like this learning style and it annoys me and i’m pretty sure I could comprehend stuff better and not get stuck if I read a book on the matter too. The internet is also a very good way to study, however (for some reason) it’s not allowed. Could be supervised or occasionaly glanced on to make sure you’re doing it, but no lectures the way to go right? Not really.
And on the history matter, I’m not just judging it on the fact I think it’s boring, i’ve done it before, and don’t like it. I know basic history (a bit) and thats all that really matters. If it does. To which I don’t think it does usually.
@Zeke I agree 100% with you and the video, advanced math like he pointed out in the video? How am I going to need that in real life, and if so how am I going to find OUT I need it to solve something?
Another issue is learning stuff you already know, homeschooling is the best, but what if your parents won’t let you? It’s really annoying to know most stuff you’re going over and really boring.
I remember learning about limericks in 4th grade. Good thing I don’t care about Poems! What a waste of time for something i’ll never do.
Art, Music, and many other things are something I hate, yet am forced to do in school, because apparently knowing how to make 3 dimensional shapes and stuff like that is important. Am I ever going to do art again for a practical use? No, why do I spend 1 hour or more a week being forced to do it?
This is where research comes in handy, I do things I am interested in or stuff like that, I research it to get the facts and stuff, it’s not boring because I love reading about it and i’m very interested in it. I have learned about history and I do have basic tools, why am I learning it more? I’m not interested and I don’t know why I should be forced to learn something I’m not interested and doesn’t go along with what I have planned for my life. I will research if I find it interesting or want to.
School could be greatly improved, but we’re stuck with this.
