Grades are like grenades

Photo from Flickr  Grades are grenades exploding in the mind like waves and wounding little children as they try to find a place to avoid the flying shrapnel of sarcasm and hide behind the walls they build and weep within a chasm of silence their faces contorted with confusion at the verbal violence. Grades are like grenades With remnants of regret they strive to avoid the bottom set while aspiring to be the teacher’s pet which is something many grasp for but few will re...

A Different Kind of Genius: Standardized Learning vs Beautiful Diversity

What society seems to favor in children --- obedience, popularity, good school behavior, robust mental health, plus good grades and test scores --- doesn't necessarily build on children's strengths nor help them be who they are. In fact the very things we define as problems are vital aspects of human diversity.

OCD Treatment: More Important Than School or Outside Activities?

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is an often misunderstood and complicated illness. It can latch on to anything that is important to us, and has the potential to totally devastate lives. Still, so many people believe it is nothing more than excessive hand washing and the desire to keep things tidy. This could not be further from the truth. For the purpose of this post, I’ll be referring specifically to OCD in children. When OCD makes an appearance in a family, it often brings about f...

ADHD: Parenting Beyond Behavior, Beliefs, and Grades

When we look at the whole story of children diagnosed with ADHD, we find that hindsight reveals deeper challenges that have not received attention. While the average age of presentation is between 3 to 6 years of age with the average age of diagnosis coming at 7 years of age, developmentally, other pictures emerge. In taking history we learn of symptoms and challenges that were present from an early age. Eventually, those children diagnosed (and undiagnosed) have endured labels very different...

I Can Never Think Straight

From a teen in Australia: Lately I’ve been feeling no point to life and I can never think straight. My home life is horrible as i have an abusive older sister who i used to be very close with and now my parents always yell at me and call me the abusive one. I have often panic attacks, i vomited recently after a traumatic event and i can never walk away from my technology no matter how hard i try. My school life is also horrible as i feel that not even my closest friends trust and rely on me and ...

If My Grades Are Bad, Can I Still Go To College?

The short answer is yes.  I’ve worked with a number of students who had bad grades in high school, but went on to do well in college.  I’ve also worked with a few, however, who weren’t quite ready for prime time. So while the answer is yes, a student with bad grades can still go to college, there are other questions that we must consider to determine the best course of action for a student with low grades. First of all, why are your grades so poor?  Is it because you experienced some sort of tra...

Underachievement Can Be SO Frustrating

So. I haven’t written here in…years. This is because of 2 reasons. One is administrative. Google didn’t like the way I had links structured and they de-listed the blog until I fixed it. Going through a thousand posts and fixing links? Not really fun. It took a good deal of the wind out of the sails for me. Second reason: objections from sons. There was (and is) a good deal of concern that I was violating privacy by writing about them. Individuals actually searched the blog for referenc...

I’m Depressed and My Parents Won’t Help

From a teen in Jordan: My parents are humanitarian workers, so we travel to developing countries around the world. We moved to Jordan last week, and because the English speaking schools are too expensive, my parents put me in a French high school. In my old school, I was a hard working straight A student, and I took my grades very seriously. However, being in this school completely destroyed me. Being a non-fluent French speaker, I couldn’t understand any of the classes and would always get a 50...

public high school in Argentina

Photo: Beatrice Murch 1. Don’t expect that there will be school all that often. Argentina has more national holidays than any other country on Earth. And for every one of them, school closes. We’re not talking just Easter and Christmas here — for example, there was no school this week because we were honoring the day some General from way back ‘passed over into immortality’. There’s lots of Generals, and we celebrate their birthday, their death, the day they started second grade, the birth...

The College Triangle: Finding Balance Without Abusing Your Body

I remember the day I turned 18 like it was yesterday. It came with a feeling of power and determination and the opportunity to finally put to use all of those things I knew to be true. I was young, dumb and, well, you can finish that phrase in your head. We spend our teen years so sure of things. Those of us lucky enough to have nurturing, caring parents grew up in a cocoon of love and support. Our conceptions of the world are based on rose-tinted glasses telling us how the world should work. ...

I Want to Help My Friend

From Spain: I have a friend that asked me to come over and spend some time with him after he finished his first – very important – exam in the ‘high school’ he goes to. I noticed how he looks so depressed as he wants to say something then at some point. He opened the conversation with me and started telling me almost all his problems about exams, college, money and future. I told him to rest from his tension and have some time with himself but he told me that he only wants to sleep (but I don’t ...

I Don’t Know How to Repair the Relationship Between Me and My Mom

From a teen in Canada: When I was younger, my mom and I used to get along great. I don’t mean just the regular every little girl gets along with her mom. She’d always be on my side whenever my dad would yell at me unfairly, and she was always the first to defend me. And when I got diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome when I was twelve, she was so supportive. However, over the past year or so, all that has changed. Every time I make a mistake, she’s on my back about it. I’m getting less than a 85 av...

Grades: Policy vs. Ethics

Grading will always be a topic of debate, but what happens when the grading policy is in opposition of your ethical beliefs?  As educators, the grades we assign are based on the students’ abilities to prove mastery in the standards and expectations of our subjects.  And we have been hired as the masters of these standards and expectations, so when did it become acceptable for administration to override our say in student outcome? Recently, I have […]
