Teachers Shouldn’t Use Red Colored Pens to Mark Students Homework Because It’s Like Shouting and Upsets Them
How on Earth are today’s kids going to be able to cope with any problems in the future. There in lies the rub, maybe they already can’t and explains the irrational fatal responses to dealing with issues and confrontation of today’s children.
Who in there life has not got a test or paper back in school marked up in read showing the misspelled words, errors and teachers comments? That may be a thing of the past. In the wussified world we live in today because “red” pens make children feel uncomfortable, researchers at University of Colorado in the U.S say that teachers should use more neutral colors like blue. GOOD GRIEF!!! The researchers behind the study say that teachers should not use red pens to mark homework and tests because it could upset schoolchildren. GOOD, THAT IS THE POINT SO THEY DON’T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE IN THE FUTURE.
Teachers should stop using red pens to mark homework and tests because it could upset schoolchildren, U.S researchers say.
A study showed students think they’ve been assessed more harshly when their work is covered in red ink compared to more neutral colours like blue.
Sociologists Richard Dukes and Heather Albanesi from the University of Colorado told the Journal of Social Science: ‘The red grading pen can upset students and weaken teacher-student relations and perhaps learning.’
In 2008, hundreds of schools banned teachers from using red ink to correct work because they considered it ‘confrontational’ and ‘threatening’.
But Chris McGovern, chairman of the Campaign for Real Education, slammed the findings saying: ‘In my own experience of 35 years in teaching is that children actually prefer teachers to use red ink because they can read comments more easily.
The entire point of marking a child’s paper, test, exam and quiz in red is to stand out from the blue or black ink or pencil that was used by the student. What a joke and candy-a$$ country we have become if a child cannot take having their exam graded in red ink. It might upset them? Really, maybe it should upset them so that they learn from their mistakes and get it right the nest time? But the liberals who have destroyed today’s public schools would rather the children feel better and not have anything upset them, rather than actually learn.
What have we come to in this country? I am sorry, but no one can tell me that the school system today. Between educators are more worried about teaching ‘Heather has Two Mommies’, charging children on terroristic threats when in possession of a Hello Kitty bubble gun, teaching sex-ed at far too young an age and gumming down the educational system with “No Child Left Behind’, allowing children to retake tests until they pass. We now have these fools worried about upsetting the children with red ink. Guess what, when you get a 100% or A+, that is in big bold red ink as well. Is that upsetting them as well? AMERICA, when are the parents going to stand up and make educators understand that it is during a child’s learning years that they understand how to cope with mistakes and failures that will serve them later on in life? Then again, many of the times, the parents are also to blame for their coddling of little Bobby or Suzie who were made to feel uncomfortable by getting a bad grade.
We have already taken away dodge ball and any thing that would promote completion in public schools. Picking teams is history because those who are chose last are made to feel inferior. Is it any wonder why when you do nothing but coddle children that they have no idea how to perform in the real world?
Any school that would follow the banning of red ink, should maybe have their decision makers be provided a pink slip as well.
Good Grief … This is What TV Has Come To … “All My Baby’s Mamas” Starring Rapper Shawty Lo and Ten of His Baby’s Mamas
NOW THIS DESERVES AN APOLOGY AND AN IMMEDIATE CANCELLATION!!!
WTF … Suddenly the reality show Honey Boo Boo is looking like Emmy Award winning TV ... So this is what passes as TV today, is there any wonder why there is such an issue in minority communities with families without fathers. Oprah’s Oxygen channel actually wants to air the following reality TV show … ‘All My Baby’s Mamas’. UNREAL!!! How responsible of you Oprah. The poor excuse for a TV show is supposed to air this Spring and stars rapper Shardy Low and the ten women who had eleven of his babies. Yup, that’s the premise that Oprah and the O2 channel wants to glorify and exploit for money.
A new low in TV, this might actually be beneath low. What are these people thinking? Who finds this entertaining? Sorry, but this is not something to be glorified, it is an epidemic with black America. But no, the Oxygen channel looks to exploit a blight in the American-American community of “Baby Daddies” and “Babby Mamas” Who cares whether rapper Shardy Low is providing for all of his baby mamas and their out of wedlock kids, 99% of those minorities are not!
Critics say reality television has hit a new low. And that’s saying something.
The cable TV channel Oxygen is developing a one-hour special called, “All My Babies’ Mamas,” which follows the life of Carlos Walker, a.k.a. rapper Shawty Lo, his 11 children and their 10 mothers in Atlanta.
A 13-minute “sizzle” reel is making the rounds online. When Sabrina Lamb saw the preview of the show, she said her blood curdled.
“I was horrified, it was as if someone slapped me across the face,” Lamb told Here & Now’s Robin Young.
Below is the release by the Oxygen Medial as to what they look to exploit with this ridiculous piece of garbage programming. Is this how far our country has fallen?
“Oxygen will give fans an intimate look at unconventional families with larger than life personalities and real emotional stakes,” says Cori Abraham, Senior Vice President of Development, Oxygen Media. “’All My Babies’ Mamas’ will be filled with outrageous and authentic over-the-top moments that our young, diverse female audience can tweet and gossip about.”
Check out the victimization of Rapper Shawty Lo … he didn’t ask for 11 children with 10 different woman it just happened. Way to go Oxygen, glorifying an admitted drug dealer and his alley cat morals.
“You can hate all you want to, I didn’t ask for it. It just happened. Now that it happened, I’m supposed to turn my back against it?” Shawty Lo told MTV News about his 11 children and untraditional family structure. “If I wasn’t taking care of my kids then you would really dog me out, but I’m taking care of my kids, providing for my family. I don’t know what else to say.”
Growing up, the ATL trap rapper faced many hardships. His mother was hooked on drugs, his dad wasn’t around and his grandmother who raised him died from cancer by the time he turned 17. Having to fend for himself, Shawty Lo turned to the streets to make ends meet.
“I came to be one of the largest drug dealers to come from Atlanta, Bankhead area and I started havin’ kids. When the money came, a lot of women came,” he said, estimating he was a millionaire by the time he turned 21. “Once you feel like a girl was your girlfriend or whatever, the rubber probably came off,” he said candidly. “They wouldn’t have an abortion. They used to take the money and run with it, and they’d have a baby by the most popular guy in the street, and that’s how I had all them kids.”
EXIT QUESTION … WHAT HAPPENED TO MY COUNTRY?
