A shopping mall, shopping centre or shopping precinct is one or more buildings forming a complex of shops representing merchandisers, with interconnecting walkways enabling visitors to easily walk from unit to unit, along with a parking area – a modern, indoor version of the traditional marketplace. Now a days many shopping malls or shopping districts are now located near schools which make students like to visit it more often during their free time rather than studying. The researcher wants to prove that shopping centers like the Robinsons Place Dumaguete which is place near St. Louis School-Catherina Cittadini (SLS-CC) can affect the study habits of 4th year students studying there. Also he wants to prove that can it really be a problem for students to study during their free period or they just relax inside the mall regardless of their grades may be. He will be surveying 50 correspondents inside the school. Can it really affect not the study habits but the attendance of the students?

B. Theoretical Framework
There are schools that prohibit their students to go to the mall(s) (mostly nearby) after class. - To prevent their students from mall-ing/loitering around after school instead of studying at home.
Schools' concern:
-Students just fool around with friends, and doesn't study
-Students should rather go home and do their homework
-Some are just playing on computer shops/arcades
-Students wearing their uniform on malls "damage(s)" the identity of the school

A. Review of Related Legal Bases

The Department of Education (DepEd) is now prohibiting all students of public and private elementary and secondary schools from going to computer shops, malls, theaters, and other similar establishments during class hours. To carry out the ban effectively, Education Secretary Mona Valisno said school officials and teachers concerned should communicate and coordinate with their respective local government officials so that both parties could work on a possible enactment or implementation of the appropriate legislation to implement this. “These legislations may be in the form of regulating the distance of computer shops, malls, theaters and the likes from schools,” she said. The directive may also be sent to the owners of these establishments not to allow entry of students during their respective class hours. “The LGUs can ask the owners of these shops and malls to check first the class schedules of the student trying to enter the establishment,” she said. Valisno said schools should accordingly provide their students with certified copies of their respective class schedules. She said going to these establishments has adverse effects on students. “We are aware of the prevailing situation that there are students in the elementary and secondary levels from public and private schools who go to computer shops, malls, theaters, and the likes during their class hours while in their school uniforms,” she said. Thus, the Department issued DepEd Order No. 86, s. 2010 on June 18 which directed all school officials and employees concerned to institute and implement the necessary mechanism on the school discipline applicable under the situation. “They should monitor closely those students who are absent or cut class often,” said Valisno. When it comes to the school discipline to be imposed, Valisno explained that this should primarily focus on guidance counseling of the students involved. “The principals or the teachers should have a dialogue with the parents of the students or even with their guardians to address the problem,” added Valisno. Valisno also urged the school officials and teachers to provide their students with worthwhile and productive activities. “These activities particularly those that can enhance the creative and communicative skills can be done during the free time of the students in school,” she said. School heads and teachers can encourage their students to join in activities that could improve their communicative skills such as debate or their creative skills such as dramatic activities and theatrical programs. Reports to DepEd reveal that many students cut their classes and spend time playing online games, visiting various social networking sites such as Friendster and Facebook and some even are sneaking to visit pornographic sites in computer and Internet shops. To address this concern, DepEd will also be deploying monitoring teams to watch Internet shops for class-cutting pupils. “We already ordered a tighter watch on Internet cafés, particularly those in school zones, during class hours,” she explained. Valisno admitted that since DepEd cannot address this problem alone, cooperation between school officials, LGU officers, and parents is a must. “We also appeal to owners of Internet cafés not to allow students – especially those still in uniform – to spend time in their establishments, especially during class hours,” she said. Nationwide, many LGUs are implementing ordinances that regulate Internet shops that allow students to enter their premises. In Makati for instance, the local government has already warned owners of computer shops of possible closure if they would not comply with the DepEd order and city ordinance. For Maribeth Cortes, parent to first year high school student Vince, this is very important since parents like her cannot monitor the activities of her child when he is in school. “I think construction of computer shops should not even be allowed near school premises because these only tempt the students to go there instead of attending their classes,” she explained in Filipino. Valisno said that school heads and teachers should also be responsible in monitoring the activities of their students. “They should always remind their students not to go to these computer shops during class hours and should call the attention of the parents of the child if the he or she cuts class very often,” she ended

My 4th Year High School Life, Different from the Others

...My 4th year High School Life, Different from Others Alyssa Bea Tanda, IV-Br. Flavius High school life is really fun. There are so many happenings in your life that you will never forget, so many things that had changed your life. For me there are many things in my life that changed a lot in me but I can say that the one that had changed me the most is my being a 4th year high school student. I don’t know why, but I really learned a lot in this part of my life. There are also some good effects of me being a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd year high school student, but being a fourth year student is really different. It’s different from my other past experiences. The first day of 4th year came and I found out that my section is Br. Flavius, wherein my classmates were also my classmates when I was in 3rd year. At first I had thought of transferring to other section, because I want something new and I want to have new friends with other people. But then I had a realization that I can’t afford to be away from my friends. I also thought that it is God’s will that I am part of that section, so there is a purpose why I belong here. One of the main reasons why I decided not to transfer to other section is because I learned that the adviser of our section is Mr. Joseph Consignado. Even when I was still on the lower years, I already know his name. Many people say that he is one of the best advisers of the high school department. Every section that he handled was always known to be one of the......

Year in School

... When it comes to year round schooling, many people have debated on whether or not it is the right decision for the students. There is two sides to the argument. One is that summer vacations hurt the children’s learning experience because every year when they come back, they have to re-learn what they have forgotten over the summer. Another side to the argument is that having a summer vacation is essential to growing up. School systems and communities have come up with many different options, and by the end of this paper you can decided which would best suit you. Through research we have found that since back in the 1800’s they have handled schooling in many different ways. Back then schools lacked a long summer vacation we are used to today. Their schooling was handled by them going to school from December to March, have a break, and then return mid-May to August. Other schools in this era had children from working families attend an eleven month school year, it served as a safe and inexpensive place for them to be. Since the 1900’s school districts around the country have offered a longer school year, involving shorter spread out vacations. As opposed to our system now, schooling around the world differs from ours here in America. They are not used to a short school year followed by a long vacation. Instead, children in countries such as Europe, Asia, and South America go to school more days per year, as well as more hours per day. On one side of the debate there is the......

6 Year High Schools

...Should High School be Extended to 6 Years? “Education refers to overall processes that help individuals to develop their behaviors, attitudes and abilities (Tezcan, 1985). It remains as the  major  tool  by  which  people  become empowered  and  the  economic,  social,  and personal  well-being  of  all  citizens in all societies is provided (American Psychological Association [APA], 2010). The prosperity of a country depends on its well qualified and educated human capital. Thus education level of a society is one of the most important indicators of socio economic development and productivity rates in a country (Çakmak, 2008).” In today’s economy, a high school diploma, an associates degree and relevant education is necessary to succeed. 6 year high schools are one way to ensure that students are getting the education they need to thrive in today’s society. According to Bureau of Labor Statistics, an employed person with only a high school diploma earns an average of $33,904 yearly. An employed person with an associate’s degree earns an average of $40,820 yearly. Individuals that have only earned a high school diploma have an 8.3% unemployment rate, while individuals with a high school diploma and an associate’s degree only have a 6.2% unemployment rate. The average for the United States is 6.7%. Individuals that don’t even have a high school diploma fall to a 12.4% unemployment rate! High schools should be extended to six years.

Factors Affecting the Reading Comprehension of Fourth Year High School Students

...Moreover, Tzeng (1999) explained in his study “Optimizing Challenges and Skills in the Design of an Educational Computer Game and Exploring Adolescents’ Gaming Beliefs” that previous studies indicate that computer-assisted instruction (CAI) programs have important factors that can motivate, challenge, increase curiosity and control, and promote fantasy in children. Despite the fact that computer and video games gave the same multimedia capability as CAI programs, Begg et. al. (2005) stressed in their study “Game-Informed Learning: Applying Computer Game Processes to Higher Education” that their potential learning impact is often discounted by parents and educators. Recently, computer-based video games presence and popularity have been ever-growing, and game developers and researchers have started to investigate video games impact on students’ cognitive learning. For, example Pillay (2002) commenced a study entitled “Journal of Research on Technology in Education” investigating the influence of recreational computer games on children’s subsequent performance on instructional tasks. While game-playing is regarded somewhat negative in educational settings, particularly for young children, re-scrutinization of its influence in a teaching and learning context is crucial. This study investigated whether computer-based video games facilitate children’s cognitive learning achievement. In comparison to traditional CAI programs, this study explored the impact of the varied types......

It now rules the life of an average student and in the field of education in any corner of the world. It has taken over the field of education. Its influence has been taken across the world in every possible way. According to Charlie S. (2012) “Computer has been taking big parts of our lives, in different sectors such as medicine, architecture, communication, research, sports and education. But it greatly affects the sector of education, especially the students”. In this world of competition, the students should have to be educated. Everything is not taught by a teacher or in school. In facing big challenges in life, students take extra learning through technology/computers. These computers can be used for their personal or recreational activities such as listening to music, watching movies or videos, chatting, browsing, playing games and etc. We can also express our feelings through it, through social networking sites. Furthermore, the work of the students became easier in searching information they want to learn. Technology has been part of our lives like language, ritual values, arts and more.

While prepping for the GRAD TEST I gained some new knowledge like how to make the essay sound very interesting. I was very excited seeing my score that I got from the practice essay since the teacher grade the same like how the GRAD TEST will be graded. However, the history day essay was very fun, too. It was fun because I got to research about the topic that I picked and I picked “Birth Control”, which was a very interesting topic. Some of the information that I learn from “Birth Control” while I was researching was that between 1910 and 1915, 300,000 women died in childbirth. That’s more than all of the men who died in the U.S. wars from the Revolution to World War 1.

Adoption in the Middle School Years

...Adoption in the Middle School Years Introduction To adopt a child means to take another’s child and raise him/her as one’s own. The process of adoption will have numerous rewarding experiences as well as difficult ones. When it comes to adopting a child in the middle school years, more challenges will present themselves than in any other age group. During this age, children begin to develop a sense of identity and begin to question their life experiences and their biological parents. School-aged children at this age go through numerous significant developmental changes. Much of their identity is derived from their family and peers in their lives. However, for adopted children, developing an identity is more complicated than non-adopted children. They have to assimilate two separate families and biological backgrounds as they explore how they fit in and the person they are growing up to be. Many of these children often face self-esteem issues and self-worth, and that is what makes them different from other children. A majority of adopted children have difficulty building social relationships with those around them and this can lead to depression, low academic performance, and even aggression. It is clear to see why adopting a younger child would be much simpler, but older children need homes, as well.

Study Habits of High School Students

... CHAPTER I INTRODUCTION Background of the study The middle school years are a critical turning point in young peoples’ lives. At ages 11-14 years, children go through the early adolescence stage. Adolescence is an important period when a child adjusts physically, learns new cognitive abilities, forms positive social relationships, develops a positive sense of self, and forges a personal code of ethics and morality (Eccles, Midgley,1989;Jackson & Davis,2000). Schools, along with peers and families, play an important role in fostering young peoples’ healthy development through the adolescent years (Meece, 2003). Thus, ignoring the developmental needs of students in school might result in the students developing a wrong notion of school until adulthood. Students’ eagerness and motivation to go to high school may decline as they go through their first year in high school if they may still lack the interaction they need to become familiar with and to be exposed to the high school’s norms and environment (Eccles & Midgley, 1989) (Barone, Aguirre-Deandreis, & Trickett, 1991).
