I deserve an A+ because I try really hard on my work. I take all the notes we do. I may get distracted, but I try to get everything that you put on the board. I do get my credit for my work that I do, but I think I deserve more credit because I do try really hard. I also deserve an A+ because I get my work right, and it's all correct so why not give me an A+ or at least an A.
I think i deserve about a B. I think I deserve this B becauseI do my work about 98% of the time, but I also goof off and am very loud the other two percent of the time. When I do do my work, I am engaged and trying to learn and still have side conversations cause honestly I learn and pay attention more when I am talking to my friends. I want an A but I would be happy with a B because I think that is what I deserve.
I want this grade because I will be able pass the grades. I won't have to worry about getting on the LOP list. I won't have to worry about being on academic probation for my sports. I am going to get this grade by behaving in class, turning in all my work, and paying attention more so I know what I am actually doing. This strategy worked for me in the past because in an other class I didn't pay any attention and failed my tests but then as soon as I started paying attention, I started passing my tests and my grade went up eventually. I got put on academic probation and so I had to bring up my grades to get off probation.
I believe the grade percentage I have earned is about an 87.5%. On the Grades on Learning scale I rate a three out of four because I do care about my grades. If I am really struggling I think can only pass with a C but I know that I am trying my best to pass the class with a better grade so I will be satisfied.
I feel the way I do about my grades because I do sports, and sports are everything but my coaches says “Students before Athletes. Always.” So I have to keep them up in order to keep up with my sports.
My attitude changed for learning in some subjects. I think it changed when I hit middle school. In elementary my teachers were really involved with hands on activities and really “feeling" the subjects and really trying to understand that not all people learn the same way, so we did different things on the same topic. But in middle school that all changed. It was like here, take these notes for an hour and on Friday we will take the test. There were no activities that were involved. Well there were maybe a few teachers, but really that not many.
I believe that I earned this "B" grade because I do do my work and try when I have to.
