Middle And High School Students Cite
Anxiety In Attempt To Kill Presenting
In Front Of Class

Daily Caller, by Evie Fordham

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 9/14/2018 9:01:39 AM

Middle and high school students are citing anxiety as their reason for pushing back against assigned in-class presentations as research shows that nearly one-third of teenagers have an anxiety disorder. The National Institute of Mental Health reports that an estimated 31.9 percent of adolescents between the ages of 13 and 18 exhibit some form of anxiety. It’s an increase that experts say has been driven by the rise of social media, more pressure on students to go to college and other factors. Students and teachers are split about whether offering alternatives to oral presentations will help anxious students or hurt

What in the hell are they talking about?

These shy, neurotic "students" don´t seem to have any problem screaming there lungs out on national television, ranting and raving about how their "safe spaces" have been violated, how Trump is going to "kill everybody", the unspeakable horror of hearing a conservative speak and most of all relentlessly lecturing the rest of us with their idiotic opinions on anything and everything.

Maybe they can hold a "dolly" or stuffed animal while presenting in front of the class.

As a youngster that age, I was very anxious about speaking in front of class or a full school assembly. All of us were still expected to do it from time to time.

As an adult I found it easy to make presentations.

There is no disorder except in the minds of those who must find a disorder in what is normal. As for excuses about doing school work of any kind, young people are full of them.

In their defense, public speaking is one of the most common phobias -- even among accomplished, well-qualified adults. Most people DREAD getting up in front of an audience. As for myself, I love giving presentations, and I always have. I did speech and debate in high school, and I found a career that lends itself to public appearances. But I have a visceral fear of heights, and I break out in a cold sweat when I try to imagine someone forcing me to climb a ladder, or perch on the edge of a cliff, or admire a scenic overlook. I´d probably throw up. If that´s what public speaking feels like to most people, I´d say they can take a pass. Leave that job for those of us who enjoy it.

My hands would shake when giving a presentation but I did it, many times, as required. If I had not learned how to handle it, there are many things I would not have done as an adult. Test anxiety, presentation anxiety, on and on. Why ask the children to do anything?

When I was 12, my mother signed me up for a summer swim team at one of our municipal pools. She did this without my consent. She said it would be good for me both physically and socially. I did not want to go. I was terrified. I was a pudgy girl who was quite white from the winter, but I went because I loved my mother. I knew no one on the team and I was a mediocre swimmer. My mother sat outside the fence twice a day watching me practice and she attended every swim meet. It was truly one of the scariest things, at that point in my life, and one of the best things I ever did. I was fit, tan, had new friends and had learned that I can do things that are scary and survive. Was an absolute cure for my awkwardness? No, but it sure didn´t hurt to do it. And, I am a life-long lap swimmer now.
Buck up young people, there´s a whole world out there to conquer, starting inside your own heads.

I call BS. Adolescents and teenagers are perpetually anxious about everything; their hair, nails, clothes, iPhones, pimples, dates, cars, drugs. So what´s new?

Second, they seem to be cringing snowflakes, not the least bit afraid of bashing and threatening someone from behind a keyboard but God forbid they should be asked to actually prepare for a class assignment and they fall apart.

Please. Grow up. And that goes for the kids as well.

These kids are going to grow up without knowing how to have a face to face conversation because they have their noses in their phones 24/7. Should the schools not require them to speak to anyone because it might make them anxious?

I had to present a report on Susan B. Anthony in 8th grade and was a hot mess while giving it. It was a traumatic event in my life, but looking back, it would have been wrong to let me skip it because of my anxiety. They will never learn anything until they try it.

Grab the twit and stand them in front of the class. Force ´em to speak, if ya have to push the words out with your foot well place at THE other end.
In high school (there was no ´middle school" then) we had class presentations as part of our grade. Speak or fail. One thing I´ve learned from that, the people in the audience will think you´re brilliant for being on the podium speaking. Like the commercial says "never let them see you sweat" Just calmly state your piece and leave.
For me, ... if there is a microphone and a stage, ... I will use it.
Am I a HAM at times? yes and proud of it.
Nothing like the roar of the grease paint and the smell of the crowd.

I took a speech class in HS. We had a number of different assignments. One was memorizing an advertisement like” Crest has been shown to be an effective decay preventative dentifrice...” and reciting it in front of the class or a silent routine like trying to start a lawn mower that wasn’t cooperating things like that.

Didn’t kill us and learning to follow orders and obeying won’t harm these snowflakes, well, what doesn’t kill ya makes ya stronger ??????

A lot of people are terrified of speaking in front of a group. The larger the group, the more fear. I hated it at first but finally got used to it and even enjoy it now. I don´t think it´s a mental disorder, just a very common fear.

I also have acrophobia like #6. I can´t even look at those daredevil pictures in high places. I don´t think I can ever shake that fear.

It´s a rite of passage in youth. American kids want to be protected from any perceived pain. I present all the time, and it´s really not all that difficult. Just know your subject matter better than anyone else, and think to yourself those people in the audience really want to learn. And when you have the floor you have the opportunity to put major put-downs to anyone who acts up.

At least three people were killed and six others were wounded in Saturday shootings across Chicago. A woman was discovered with a fatal gunshot wound Saturday morning in the Avondale neighborhood on the Northwest Side, according to Chicago police. At 1:35 a.m., officers found her lying inside an apartment hallway in the 3900 block of West Roscoe. She had a bullet in her head and was pronounced dead on scene. Witnesses heard the woman, whose age was unknown, arguing with someone before gunshots rang out, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office has not released her identity. That same

This was brutal. Maria Bartiromo DESTROYED Rep. Debbie Dingell on the Democrat Party’s nonsensical position on the “immoral” wall on the border with Mexico. Democrats all believe walls are immoral except around their own homes and in their elite neighborhoods. This dressdown by Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures was just incredible! Maria asked the Michigan liberal if the US should tear down the “immoral” wall in Tijuana, Mexico? Then Maria showed her these stats from the San Diego sector following the completion of the current wall. (Photo) Via Sunday Morning Futures: (Video)

Democrats are often accused of aiding and abetting illegal immigrants in their quest to gain entry into the United States and four women found guilty of illegally entering a national wildlife refuge along the southern border don’t help with that perception.The women’s actions also go a long way toward supporting President Donald Trump’s insistence that illegal immigration is a humanitarian crisis, and to showcase the impact his get-tough stance on the issue is having. The women are humanitarian aid volunteers for the advocacy group No More Deaths, and they were found guilty as part of an effort to drop off

Potential presidential candidate Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand on Sunday hit back at similarities between old comments she made about immigration to what President Trump is saying now. The New York Democrat said her hard-line positions more than a decade ago, while serving as a House lawmaker representing a conservative congressional district in upstate New York, “weren´t empathetic and were not kind,” including voting to increase funding for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and opposing amnesty for illegal immigrants. Gillibrand attributed her change of opinion to listening to a wider range of constituent perspectives when she became a U.S. senator in 2009.

Country music is the most American of musical idioms, alongside jazz. With a longer history than rock and roll or hip-hop, country has produced a powerful pantheon of memorable artists, albums, and songs. Growing up, I pretended not to like country music, even though it was the music I heard my dad listen to the most (while my mom turned me on to the incredible pop and rock of the ‘60s and ‘70s).

Should you believe in a God? All the discord and vitriol in our culture boils down to how you would answer. Border walls, gay marriage, abortion, national defense, school choice -- where you stand on these issues and the myriad others comprising our daily tussle is for the most part defined by how you answer this question. Your answer, yeah or nay, draws a very hard line. The professional philosopher John G.
