The Final Product

Good morning, super English students!

As promised, I have used my mind map to write an essay. This essay is only one of many ways to talk about the topic. There are many other points that could be made. I have just chosen a few and have written an essay at the level of English that will work for many ESL students.

As a review, read all of the “Writing a Great Essay” posts starting with #1. Then see what you think of my essay.

It would be good practice for you to write your own essay about this topic. Use your ideas. Make your own sentences. Organize your ideas in your own way. Send them on to me:

I’d love to read them!

Where do you want to go to school?

Reading, writing, arithmetic. The subjects are the same but the school is changing for more and more students. Many of the students around the world no longer go to school. School is at home. Parents are the teachers. There is great debate about home school. Is it better than going to a school where many students gather to learn?

Home school does have advantages. It can be much less expensive, and there are fewer rules. The student can have a computer at all times for research and writing. The main advantage is that a student gets more attention and can work at a relaxed pace. The student can learn in his or her own way. Some students have difficulty learning in a big school with many students. Home school can be a good way to go for this kind of student.

Public or private school has advantages that home school doesn’t have. There are more resources like labs and books. Students learn to work together. They can help each other by sharing ideas. In this kind of school, students can have many friends. They can play sports together and have more fun.

Both types of schools also have disadvantages. In the public or private school, there is a lot of stress and competition. This can be a problem for many students. There are many rules which may block creativity. There is one way of teaching which may not work for everyone. Big classes mean that individual students do not get very much attention.

At the same time, students in home schools do not get a chance to learn and play with others. They may feel lonely and bored. If a student does not learn to work in a team, it may affect the student’s career later in life. Also, without other students to add different ideas, a student may not be as creative.

No school is perfect. Home school, public and private schools are good for different kinds of students. But there will always be some minuses. The best thing about all this is that there are more choices. Students and parents can decide what is best for individual needs. This is good news for the future. All students deserve to have the best opportunity to learn as much as possible. Having more choices helps make this possible.
