* I have been out of school for a while and KNOW I need to improve. Constructive criticism only please! Thanks =) "People most respect the powerful not when they exercise their power, but when they refrain from exercising it." Isn’t being powerful when someone in power exercises their power? If not, what would distinguish them from anyone else? Those in power are more respected when they fully take on the role and exercise their power. Police officers are highly respected and valuable to many communities. They earn this respect by exercise their power to enforce the law and keep people safe. Government officials, from Mayors to Senators to the President are constantly exercising their power, making big decisions to better our country. They are respected for doing their job – exercising their power and making big decisions that will affect many. On the other hand, workers at a restaurant may have more respect for their manager when they roll up their sleeves and serve food to patrons along side them. Or when a nurse manager puts on scrubs and helps a struggling staff take care of a heavy workload of sick patients. Those in power need to exercise their power in order to do their job well. A job well done is the perfect recipe for success.
hello ! i just joined the forum and m not sure how to reply to threads , so i followed some instructions they helped me post a 'new thread' but ... um not rply to the previous thread.. so spare with me this one time . tell me what you think about the essay . word count is 326 words. also , do we have to give our essays a title ? Exercise – a must on the daily schedule. The long started debate as to whether physical training should be a part of the daily curriculum has reached a saturation point , after going on and on in circles , a decision has not yet been made. Many people believe that knowledge , grades and studies is the backbone of success and like to put studies above everything. Others believe that for the all round development of a child erercise and other extracurricular activities are as important as studies. Though both the sides of the debate present strong arguments , I’d like to believe with the latter who think exercise must be a part of school.the baes of my views are psychological and physical . On a physical level , exercise keeps one moving and grooving. It helps the body detoxicate itself by releasing sweat and betters the functioning of the vitals organs of the body. It improves our breathing , thereby increasing oxygen supply to the brains. It refreashs the brain , thereby helping the child to concentrate better on his work better after his exercise. Infact less number of study hours with an exercise routine gives more output than long continuous , tedious hours of study. On a psychological level , exercise proves to be a stress-buster. One should get moving to get rid of stress . when one is active , his feel good hormones are released which distracts him from his anxieties .The brain produces feel-good neurotransmitters called endorphins which boosts his self-confidence. Exercise is meditation in motion which will hep the student refresh himself and come out calm , clean and optimistic. In a world where the child has more critics than he has role-models , the child will surely need exercise where he re-evaluatehimself , calm his nevers and get rid of all pessimistic thought. Where he can reboot his system and start afresh. Where he’ll promise himself to face his challenges.
Question : Some people say that physical exercise should be a required part of every school day. Other people believe that students should spend the whole school day on academic studies. Which opinion do you agree with? Give reasons to support your answer. Answer : In my opinion, schools should give physical exercise to students in addition to the academic studies they receive. I do not agree with the opinion that students should spend the whole school day on academic studies. I am of the opinion that schools should not only teach students but also educate them. As most people understand, “to educate” has wider meaning than “to teach”. “To educate” can also mean, among others, to introduce new things to students, to develop skills and all potential that all students have, and to shape students’ attitude and behavior. Meanwhile, “to teach” is usually understood to be limited to knowledge transfer from teachers to students. If learning process in schools is concentrated only on academic studies, students will not have the opportunities to learn the true meaning of education because all they learn in schools is restricted to academic matters and they do not have any opportunities to learn anything beyond academic matters. From my experience, I find that doing some physical exercise in balanced proportion regularly will benefit the students very much. Physical exercise will not only give them the opportunities to get themselves into good shape and enhance their health, but it will also instill a sense of discipline in them since good and balanced physical exercise requires strict rules and systematic methods which, if applied and carried out well, will shape students’ attitude, behavior, and minds. If learning process in schools never gives any physical exercise to students, they will never get such benefit of doing physical exercise. In the long run, students will become narrow-minded since almost all in their minds is academic matters and they will have only a little or no experience in other aspects of good living. Moreover, from our experience, we learn that not all students are talented in academic fields. Some students show limited capability in academic fields but demonstrate very good talent for sport or other physical exercise. Students of this kind will not have any opportunities to develop their talent and potential, should learning process in schools be limited only to academic studies. On the other hand, even if all students are very good at academic fields, without ever doing any physical exercise, they cannot be expected to attain a balance in their minds, bodies, and souls, because all their potential will be concentrated only on academic fields. In conclusion, I strongly promote the idea that in order to educate students thoroughly, schools should create a good balance between academic studies and physical exercise. In this way, we can expect our students to be both intelligent and healthy. :) :D
