This round 2, I have learned so many things in Literacy class. Such as Like Learning about Social and Environmental injustice, Living in Landfill, History of Halloween, Debate on letter grade, devil’s advocate, and learning how to write essay.
In our Literacy Wednesday class, we have been reading a book that called The rent collector. The author is Camron Wright. This book was related to people’s life in Steung Meanchey dump place in Cambodia and it also related to Literacy. This book is really good because it touch me that Literacy is really important for us. Even though we live in the dump place but literacy can change our life. It’s kind of related to our lesson about environmental injustice because inn this story is talking about how trash affect our health and how many garbage that enter into the landfill everyday.
I’m really interested in debating because it’s help me a lot. Such as like helping me to know more idea of the other team why they choose to agree or disagree with that statement. It’s also help me to trying to find the solution. In future we are not only debating in our class but we could debate for best solution to our country.
For this debating, the statement was Schools should stop the practice of giving letter grades to students. Instead, they should only give written feedback. I was agree on this statement.
Learning something is not always depend on letter grades but it’s depend on what are you really get to learn in your class. Because if you are cheating, you just get the high letter grades and your learning is just going down. And you won’t study hard enough to get your own scores just sit still and copy other work. By the way if you get the feedback from your teachers or you facilitators, you will know what is your grade really is? Educators say giving feedback is gives parents more information about their child’s performance in the classroom.
Grades are preferable. They offer clean lines of demarcation between types of performance, types of student, types of future. They point us in a few clear directions. They tell us that a student needs help. They tell us a student has talent. But they don’t tell us how to help, how to IMPROVE talent, how to push students to be better.
After the debating ended, we have learned about devil’s advocate. Being Devil’s advocate is we are trying to argue with our idea because when we know what are the question that the other side will ask. So it’s easy for us to find the solution to fight them. In the lesson, we have so many topics. My topic is about Every society should follow the one child rule. For the first time, I was disagree with is topic but after I did some research I’m kind agree with it. Here some of my researching on Every society should follow the one child rule.
The Chinese government says that the One Child Policy has restrained China’s mushrooming population (claiming that it has prevented an estimated 400 million births since its inception in 1980).
- If there are four children in each of your family how about the world, how many population?
1.Population Control. China is one of the most populous countries in the world, with its population over 1 billion. Without the policy, this number will continue to add up and this can aggravate the problem of overpopulation.
- If there are so many children in your family, how can each of they get the jobs easily?
2. Job Opportunities. With the strict rule of One Child Policy, children who grew up during this period were able to find jobs easily since there will be positions available. jobs will need to be filled in and the younger generation will be the ones to take the place of the available jobs.
- If there so many children in your family do you have times for them or get them something that they need?
3.Better Life. Having only one children is having a comfortable life. This is because all the attention, love and financial resources of the parents will be enjoyed by the child. He or she will have the chance to get the best education, better health care and job opportunities.
Do you able to have enough sources for pay your children?
4 Incentives. As a reward for complying with the policy, Chinese parents who followed the rule they will apply for education loans for their children, longer days of maternity leave and housing loans. Without the policy, parents will not be able to take advantage of these privileges. (futureofworking.com)
I really love debating. It gave me a lot of information that I never knew before. I helping me to find the best solution on what we are allow or not allow to happen.
