I think a small grocery in my school’s library is agood choice in this case. Having a small store in the library, we will have astable customer base because the library doesn’t have any restaurant or store nearby.Thus those hungry students have to walk for at least 15 minutes to grab a cup of coffee or hot food. Since many students have complained about this, if I canrun a grocery selling hot foods and drinks as well as some other stuff likepens and notes, it would be very popular among students, attracting many customers every day. I don’t even need to do any advertising: customers will crowd in my store as they don’t have any other choices. There is no competitionat all. So it’s a win-win situation: It can satisfy the starving students and make me rich. I would be very successful.
Should teachers give award to students who get good grades in order to increase the competition in class?
Personally speaking, I don’t think giving students award for increasing classroom competition is a good idea. First of all, it will transmit students a wrong message: learning is for getting award orpraise. Students may be attracted to work hard for getting the prize at first.However they will be very frustrated if they tried but failed eventually as they treated the award as the only target of learning. Therefore in long run,this method will negatively impact on students’ learning. They may lose theire nthusiasm in studying. I think teachers should encourage every student whoreally put their heart in learning, trying to initiate some changes in their study no matter whether they get expected result from it . This method would give them a consistent motivation and foster them to become life-long learners.
