Posted by Latinitas Intern on August 17, 2016 at 10:53am 0 Comments

Senior Year: Day 2

Posted by Taylor Figueroa on August 22, 2016 at 7:20am 0 Comments

  Day 2 was actually better than the first. I was worried because I had two AP courses on that day, and all new teachers. However, the Psychology teacher is very organized in her lesson plans, and it seems as though she set up the class to make it easier on us. She doesn't do after school or Saturday tutoring, and has already given us our homework ahead of time. As for Statistics, it kind of seems like a lot of work and does do Saturdays, but the teacher said if I cannot make it I can go…

   As a young adult, school, work and social life can get into a knot, but sometimes that isn't the problem. Although I have social media it is hard to express your feelings without people worrying about you. I enjoy this one because people can read it, worry about you but it's not a big rock that hits you in the face.…

The Benefits of Single Sex Education

Same sex education is considered an archaic form of teaching in the present day. It involves taking the students at a mixed-gender school and putting the boys and the girls into separate classes for certain activities and subjects. At a lot of private schools, the practice is still in full swing, but it hasn’t gained much traction in public schools until very recently.
