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.

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.

Group presentations are really a much better idea than single presentations. It forces kids to learn that everyone has an ability and to cooperate with each other. I always decided on the groups - it caused kids to solve problems and value others. Not everyone is a good public speaker - and not everyone has the handwriting to make nice posters. We are all different.

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.

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.

“The Clinton Affair,” A&E’s six-part mini-series on the scandals of Bill Clinton’s presidency, lacks a point of view. It is straightforward in style and evenhanded in tone. Strangely, this recommends it. The events it covers have been so sensationalized and so politicized for so long that seeing them presented neutrally and in roughly chronological order is revelatory, particularly regarding the stories of three women: Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and Juanita Broaddrick. These are the women who, in the 1990s, publicly accused the president of the United States of sexual harassment and assault. It’s been a year for reconsidering Bill Clinton’s

In the end, the Associated Press called the race for the Democrat on Nov. 20.

President Trump vowed to retaliate Tuesday against liberal judges on the West Coast who he said appear to have it in for him, commenting hours after an Obama-appointed judge delivered yet another legal spanking to the administration on immigration policy. “I’m going to put in a major complaint, because you cannot win if you’re us,” Mr. Trump said at the White House, facing reporters just before jetting off for a Thanksgiving holiday in Florida. He said he’s fed up with his opponents’ ability to file cases in the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, a set of notoriously liberal courts

Judge strikes down Mississippi´s
15-week abortion ban

A federal judge struck down a law in Mississippi banning abortion after 15 weeks. U.S. District Judge Carlton Wayne Reeves ruled that the Mississippi law "unequivocally" violated the 14th Amendment, the portion of the Constitution that was used to justify Roe v. Wade in the Supreme Court. Roe legalized abortion across the country for up until fetal viability, which is generally understood to be up to 24 weeks into a pregnancy. "Mississippi’s law violates Supreme Court precedent, and in doing so it disregards the Fourteenth Amendment guarantee of autonomy for women desiring to control their own reproductive health," Reeves, an

For someone who has thrust herself on the national stage, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez sure has thin skin. The proud democratic socialist and newly elected congresswoman from New York has a knack for making confusing statements, or “word slips,” as she calls them, and is real quick to play the victim if anyone calls attention to them. Her latest flub occurred on Saturday when Ocasio-Cortez called for taking back “all three chambers of Congress,” before quickly correcting herself to say “all three chambers of government,” naming the presidency along with the House and Senate. “If we work our butts off to make

Peggy Noonan’s intense dislike for President Donald Trump undermines her credibility as a fair and balanced columnist: She cannot be true to her trade when she hates the objects of her pen. With the Trumps, she has lost all sense of balance. Her unwarranted attack on First Lady Melania Trump last weekend in the Wall Street Journal is plain ugly. In a column titled “Melania’s Misstep and Michelle’s Mystery,” Noonan declares her love for former first lady Michelle Obama after reading her memoir, Becoming. Noonan should know by now that every auto-biographer blows his/her own trumpet.
