If you’re the typical American High School student, you’re day usually starts extremely early. In my case, the day begins promptly at 7-23 in the morning.
Every day since Freshman year, I’ve noticed a pattern amongst students and teachers during first period. Some students are slumped forward in their seats, their heads on their desks as the warm arms of sleep enveloped them. Teachers attempt to wake students by various methods such as letting them stretch or in some cases, yelling at them. However, these two methods don’t work because some students are still sleeping during class and are not actively engaged. This is an age old problem that needs to be confronted.
