Should modern technology, such as the Ipad, replace or supplement all books in high school? Modern technology such as Ipads must replace all books in Woburn Memorial High School. There are many reasons that textbooks are an outdated model in the 21st century. Ipads are much more portable, create less paper waste, and are a more economical way to update materials. Normally, a book weighs 5 pounds, are not too bad to carry. At Woburn High, carrying one or two textbooks is very vexatious because of the complexity and size of the school. Out of the five main subjects, two of them bring require students to bring home a book, expecting the ponderous books to be lugged back to school daily. During a study hall, it is extremely irritating to not have access to a book. Instead of carrying several 5lb books back and forth, a 1.5lb Ipad is a lot more convenient. Ipads allow students to begin and complete work without wasting time or energy. Ipads provide students with portable access to multiple books within the same device. Local district high schools such as Bedford, Burlington, and Lexington have mandated policies where every student takes responsibility for an Ipad. The initial benefit is that the paper waste would be minimal. Trees all around the world are being cut down for paper products and textbooks for schools are a huge contribution. Getting Ipads would not only be useful to Woburn High students, but would benefit area schools that are under budgetary restraints. The cash strapped schools could be the recipient of Woburn Memorial High School’s used textbooks, either as a reduced rate or as a donation. Some subjects, including math and…
Why Students Should not Have to Take Standardized Tests
I don’t believe that high school students should have to pass a standardized test in order to receive a diploma. In my opinion it does not improve academic achievement but it worsens it. I have many valid reasons to support my opinion.
The first reason I believe that high school students should not have to pass a standardized test is because it keeps many good, smart students out of college. Some colleges require a certain…
this mean to me? This meant going new school without the knowledge of whether I would find my niche in that school. To me, transferring to a new school was one of the most intimidating events that I have ever faced. Through these experiences, I have often felt secluded and out of place; however these events have molded me into the affable person that I am today.
Second grade marked the beginning of my long and arduous journey. I went to Castaic Elementary School for Kindergarten and the first grade…

social life there are always those choice we are faced with that can change our lives forever. This occurrence happened to my brother in high school, no one noticed until further down the road but non the less he was still forced to conform to the society he was growing up in.
Growing up my big brother, Pat, was my hero. He was the all star on his high school state championship team, whose quarterback was Carson Palmer, and he seemed to be getting into immense shape. My brother was at the top of…

High School Reflection Paper
Mosinee High School
Since I have been in high school for four years now, I have learned many things about life, education, and my future. During my time here at Mosinee High I have been involved in everything I wanted to be in. This has given me a great high school experience. I also believe working has given me as much of an experience as any sport or club I was in did. I have been working since I was 14 and have learned many real life skills that…
ation; they are put in private
schools since birth. Basically their whole life is planned out since the day they start
preschool. An example of this sort of person, would be someone such as Obama. He
had to basically start
developing his plans for going into the government at a very young
. Another example, would be doctors, because they have to start to develop their
skills and take classes starting in high school in order to prepare for med school. But,
they are also seen as very uptight…
Freshman year, I walked into school with my heart racing. It was my first day of high school, and I was as nervous as every other incoming freshmen. My only knowledge of high school up until that point was the horror stories I had been told by alumni. I envisioned walking down the hall and being stuffed into a locker or thrown into a garbage can or robbed of my lunch money, much like in the movies. Needless to say I was petrified.
These ideas dissolved quickly after I spent a few weeks at L-S. I…
