What Makes A Good Student?

We’ve all been there. We go home with a backpack full of homework and a load on our minds. You know very well what needs to be finished, yet you’re still easily distracted by extracurricular activities, television, or other electronics. So what does make a good student? It may be going home and immediately hitting the books or studying a week before a test, but that’s just an opinion.

I was curious as to what made a good student and I didn’t exactly have an answer, so I asked some students around Alliance High school. Someone mentioned, “A willingness to learn” while another said, “When someone consistently tries and doesn’t give up easily.” The answers I received were all different from each other, but one particular opinion stood out to me. One student stated, “A student’s character and how they interpret work.”

Though those opinions are important, but I personally believe that a good student is someone who is interested in learning but is also willing to make mistakes to become not only a better student, but a better person. It takes trial and error, but it also takes the willingness to try your hardest and achieve something that you have been striving for. I can’t say much on what is or isn’t a good student because I happen to be a procrastinator who holds off on homework until the night before it’s due. As the 2016-2017 school year draws to an end, I am only getting worse, so here’s to the kids in the same place I am; lacking motivation and persistence to finish off the last couple weeks of school.

There may not be a specific answer to this question but we can safely assume that if you’re trying your hardest, you’re doing just fine as a student. So let’s finish off this school year, shall we?
