Are students really smart?

High School and Middle school students think they could get away without being caught when they write a paper, and the teacher would give the student a failing grade, because the paper. The paper was identical to one of the smartest students who handed to the teacher in the beginning of the class. Student’s think they are David Copperfield, a fame magician who uses sleight of hand tricks, but for students, their sleight of hand tricks could get a slap of the hand by the ruler.

When would teenagers ever learn not to copy and paste, but give the right sources or some documentation to the paper? Do they know how to read and summarize and then give the citation sources? The teacher is giving all the resources to the students, and the students are not using the resource’s material that was given? Students don’t care.

And why do students have to procrastinate at the last minute. Cramming everything within a twenty-four-hour period. Students think or work better, under pressure. I have that song stuck in my head, “Ice Ice Baby” singing ‘Under Pressure’. When they work under pressure, either they get tired and fall asleep in the class while taking a test or use the mouth drool as the answer. Do they learn how to read and write and then summarize it?

Did you know that some teenagers use the internet to solve algebraic problems? Just type in the equation and the answer is solved. What’s wrong with solving by hand and understand how to do it? Algebra is supposed to be easy, even a fifth grader can solve it.

We use algebraic everyday in our lives, like how many French fries can be used when there’s a crowd of 40 people in line? You need more. One basket French Fries would not help.

Or how fast can a bullet travel when leaving from a gun? That’s a calculus problem. My niece wanted to be cop or a CSI agent. She loves watching CSI on CBS. However, it’s hard work to be a cop or CSI agent. We got to have math and science.

When a teenager tells an adult to Google it, Yahoo it or Bing it. They are not being as smart as they are supposed to be. The student should figure it out. They are supposed to learn and put it in their brain. The student should learn how to read and find out things. Analyze and use their critical-thinking skills to see if they are smart enough to pass the class for the third time in the sixth grade!

If they could understand relationship problems with their friends or boyfriend/girlfriend, they could use the same principle in reading a book. What are the character motivations in the book? Is Bella Swan really pregnant? Would she have baby werewolves or vampire babies?

Adults don’t care. They have to work and make money. Teenagers don’t care they are either texting to their friends, and their spelling is awful when they text. Have they taken English classes? They are using improper grammar while texting – spell out the words!

A teenage mind is full of tricks, don’t waste your time pranking an adult. The student would wind up in jail for doing something stupid – let that be a lesson. Enjoy prison food and the toilet is right next to the bed – remember to close the lid before going to sleep.

Breaking Dawn part 1: Bite the Bride

Breaking Dawn will become the biggest blockbuster movie since Titanic. It’s an epic love story between a Vampire and Werewolf, Edward and Jacob, who will get Bella Swan. In other words, who will keep her warm? Well, Vampires are dead and cold, while the werewolf is always warm. She can’t decide?

Bella and Edward, plus those they love, must deal with the chain of consequences brought on by a marriage, honeymoon, and the tumultuous birth of a child which brings an unforeseen and shocking development for Jacob Black.

With only four books in Stephenie Meyer’s chart-busting series (as opposed to the seven Harry Potters), the people behind the “Twilight” movies can be forgiven for stretching out the screen experience for as long as possible. The movie is two hours long and is much better than, two hours and 30 minutes. Is there an intermission I must pee?! The movie is approximately two hours.

(“Breaking Dawn” 2 hits next November.) And, after all, so much does happen in this movie, which takes the arc of human experience — birth and death and everything in between — and works it up into a rich, sudsy lather. In the past, Bella (played with increasing confidence by Kristen Stewart) has been almost eclipsed by Edward (Robert Pattinson),  his bloodsucking brood and their battles. Here, though, she returns as the emotional and psychological cornerstone in a series in which the center of gravity has shifted from frenzied action and reaction to love.

When part two comes out next November 2012 can vampire’s age? Something may be different. If you read Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga books, it’s like a mini-series franchise movie, maybe in the future deluxe DVD’s set of the movie. Don’t buy it now, just wait until it comes out in a set, buying it individual may be good, it’s up to you.

Did you know they had to re-edit some scenes? It was the love making scenes? It got pretty hot and someone dropped the boom mike on Kristen Steward’s head. Sorry. I got excited.

And I couldn’t find the Ellen DeGeneres in the movie. I know, it was a parody she spoofed on the show. However, there was a bathroom scene with Bella and Edward in it.

Be sure stay after the movie when the credit rolled, there’s a surprised at the end.

Overall it was a must go movie of the week. It was fantastic to watch. The visual and the cinematography of the movie are splendid to watch.

How to become a successfully student in College or University

Why do we have to study in college or the university? We just want to sleep and pass the class. If we put our head in the books does that count as a passing the class? We just wanted the words to soak into our minds.

When freshman students enter college or university of their choice, the students have to study. The summer break is over, and fall is in session. Don’t major in vacation. Major in something that will help you get a job quickly within two years or less. Why waste time in a 4-year college or university? Major something that you love to do and get possible career out of it, health care is the popular field and IT specialist. We need the internet to access information.

How do we learn? Are we visuals learner or auditory learners? If we see something like a drawing on the white board how can we remember it? We can draw it back and possible explain it how we get that drawing. If we can remember what the instructor said and summaries the main points in the lecture, then we have to learn something. Ding, ding, ding.

Many of us like to stay up like vampires in the night, finishing up a last minute paper or cramming for a test. Or are we waiting for our vampire idols to come and take us away. Did Bella become a vampire in the last movie? If she was, she can help me with my studies or be my study buddy.

Cramming is not good. It could ruin your sleep patterns. So please get some sleep and don’t stay up all night, having less sleep may cause obesity, and we don’t want that to happened. We need to stay in shape.

Get enough sleep and smell good in the morning. Use proper hygiene. Smell good and dress to impress to get a good grade. Professor would like that, just wear proper clothing in the class. It’s not a fashion show.

Here’s a tip, once we get out of class. Go through your notes. Jot down any information you will need before the next class, this could be during your lunch break, or if you have any time between your classes. Summaries the main point of the subject that you just came out.

Get your classmates and have a debate about the subject matter. Have your own Viewpoint Study Party. Did I say party? One can be Whoopie Goldberg, Joy Behar, Barbara Walters, Sheri Shephard and Elizabeth. Just have a good debate. No fighting and please do not post it on YouTube it can be embarrassing in the future.

If we follow what we have done in High School that we made good grades in all our subjects than do the same thing in college and university – manage your time. Do whatever you can do, to pass the class. Do not waste any time. If time is money then time is grades.

If students are taking online classes do the same thing, don’t waste your time looking at videos on YouTube, if it researched, then it’s okay. Once we finish one assignment earlier before the due date start working on the next assignment and once the due date comes along and we wants to add something else add it and send it out. We will never know what idea comes along or pop inside of our head, and that idea will give us an edge of our studies and grades. Just pay attention on due dates of assignments.
