The Introductory Paragraph
Classrooms Decide the Future of a Nation
A classroom is an incubator of change. Children in a classroom undergo a continuous learning process that involves input in the form of the environment, teaching, and its aids. Multiple assessment tools then gauge the output or performance of the students. In the end, the teacher provides feedback, which serves as a crucial part of the change process. Every step of the process aids the student in their development as the process infuses the understanding of society, morality, science, etc. The developmental process in a classroom gradually refines the analytical ability of the student and grooms their personalities. This enriching process of training and development bestows the nations with leaders, reformers, and professionals that change the fate of nations. The education system of the superpower in line – China – has proven to be the game-changer by creating a skilled and competent workforce. Today, the literacy rate in China stands at 97% compared to 20% in the 1950s. On the other hand, the third world countries due to their compromised education system paralyze the limbs of their society. (The thesis) So, it is a classroom that plays a critical role in ensuring the prosperity of a nation as the acquired knowledge helps in making wise decisions in political, economic, and social matters.
The transition between the introductory paragraph and the first body paragraph:
From a bird’s eye view, society is the general environment that contributes to the overall development. If education is the foundation of a nations’ future, society is the pillar. Education fosters social progress by serving several purposes. The first in line is the development of civic sense among the people.
First body paragraph:
Civic education is a ladder to social growth. It refers to various processes that help in reforming society. The emphasis of civic education is on enlightening the students with basic ethics and morals, which include adhering to laws, tolerance, being dutiful, respecting others and, so on. The aim of civic education is also to entrench a set of values and beliefs like co-existence, brotherhood, humility and, compassion, which raises the prospects of peace in society. Countries like Switzerland, Denmark and, Iceland that are high on civic engagement cross a literacy rate of 95%. Without education, mass civility is challenging to be acquired, and it is civic education that ensures the progress of a nation.
