It’s the time for back to school and study. I got a rest summer vacation, reading some books by Agatha Christie which is my favorite writer. I feel when I start school, I became busy for courses, does not have free time to read a good book. Then talk about the courses I take this semester, I got four math classes, those classes give me a lot pressure already. Hope I can get a great grades at the end of this semester. I read the article The Case Against Grades by Alfie Kohn. I agree most of his ideas. The grades will let students just study for exams, not for knowledges. Grades will give students pressure sometimes. And Kohn mentions that some middle schools and high schools already use give students assessment to replacing the letter grades. I think this is a good think for students, but I still think grade can be replaced but cannot deleted. Grades can be a standard for students to know where is the weak area for themselves. Talk about the writing, I think writing is a tool for people to keeping memories and saying what you want to say. The Blog is a good stage for people to write. You can ignore the format, the number of words, just write down the real things you want to say.
