Disruptive school students have a negative influence on others. Students who are noisy and disobedient should be grouped together and taught separately. Do you agree or disagree. Give your reasons.
Essay written by student
Disobedient and loud students should be separated in a group and taught separately beacause they can interrupt other students. Various schools have adopted this strategy to teach their pupils by separating them on the basis of their behaviour. I will discuss merits and demerits of groupism and present my opinion before I reach the conclusion.
Dividing the misbehaving students into a separate group can have a positive impact on the other students because there will be less interruption in the classroom. The students will be able to concentrate on their studies properly. This can also help teachers to spend more time in teaching rather than minding the disobedient students.
On the other hand, forming a group of misbehaving students can lead to several disadvantages such as there will be great chance that they will exacerate their stuborness and they can engage themselves into activities. Infact, they can bully or physically abuse their fellow students and can harass them. For example, recently there was an incidient where a school girl was bullied for her physical appearance; a group of mischivious students were calling her ‘ fatty and nerdy’. As a result, this girl became socially isolated and commited suicide.
In my opinion, separating the students on the basis of their habits and demeanour is not a good idea. For instance, a misbehaving student can not necessarily be poor academically; hence making them a part of a bad group of educates can have ill effects on their intellectual abilities.
To sum up, after analysing the advantages and disadvantages of grouping good and bad students into to separate groups; it is suggested that this practice should not be encouraged in educational institions as it may have negative impacts on both the groups.
Comments by IELTS instructor
This is a good essay. The student manages to discuss both sides of the issue and present her opinion in a convincing manner. There are very few grammar mistakes. There is one major problem, though. There are many spelling mistakes in this essay. Most of these were probably typos. However, it would be a good idea for her to work on her spelling skills.
Overall this looks like a band 7 essay.
