Jessica Lahey beings her article in The Atlantic by stating, “Letter grades are a tradition in our educational system, and we accept them as fair and objective measures of academic success. However, if the purpose of academic grading is to communicate accurate and specific information about learning, letter, or points-based grades, are a woefully blunt and inadequate instrument.”
In recent years there has been much discussion in the educational community about the purpose and effectiveness of grading students. Write an essay which states your stance on this issue. Be sure your response cites at least 2 sources and clearly takes a stand on the issue of grades.
Research nutritional information, especially what teenagers need. What does a healthy diet include? What should be avoided? What nutrients are required? What are the best foods to meet those nutritional needs? Don’t focus on calories, instead focus on nutritional requirements.
