competition with classmates and it seemed like we were being taught things under our grade level. In my opinion, the City/Suburbs give the best education compared to the Country. I cannot say whether the USA or Russia gives better education because I can see why Columbus was being taught at a different grade level. It was another country to them. It is like us learning Russia’s history in the first grade. Kohn states (and I go in depth) in “Seat Time” that just because you sit in the class long periods of time does not make you more educated that someone who sits for shorter periods.

Fadeeva There are “Wiz Kids” in all classes that happen to retain everything from hearing it said one time. I was the top senior in English in PV just because I believed most of it was common sense. Urban students who grew up around Ebonics may certainly need more hours learning the correct grammar skills. I have a disability from the accident in my Freshman year I wrote about. It caused a severe TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) that has left me with short term memory loss and ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder)- like symptoms. It was terrible the first two years after the accident in school. I would have mini-seizures where I would just stare but blackout for 30-40 minutes at a time and no one realized or I would forget a lesson by end of class. Although it has gotten better, I guarantee you I study and try my best to learn and memorize coursework more than any student. I must spend ten times more “seat time” to excel in my studies.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
