According to Greg Morris (Interviewee)
"I do think that students participate more that are involved in an activity in class. Involved students are around others in an activity and learn to communicate with others. I have my students work in groups a lot of times and the students involved in activites usually act as leaders in the group and are not shy to help others, rather than students who would go home and play videos games after school that dont have as much interaction with others."
According to the article: Education Week Research Center- After school Programs
"A 1998 government study also reported that students in after-school programs generally handled conflicts better, were more cooperative with adults, and with peers and had better social skills."
According to the article: Extracurricular Activities and Academic Grades (Sera Rivers)
"Students are more likely to request help on assignments they do not understand."
According to the article: The Path to Academic Success (John H. Holloway)
"The researchers echo Susan Gerber (1996) comment, that "eliminating the opportunity for such participation eliminates the last link to fostering a sense of belonging to school that some students have."
According to the article: Extracurricular Activities and Academic Grades (Sera Rivers)
"Students who participate in extracurricular activities are more likely to feel confident in their ability to multitask and are more likely to request help on assignments they do not understand. Students learn to respect themselves and others, and this leads to higher self-esteem. High self-esteem improves social, personal, and academic performance."
According to the article: The Path to Academic Success (Sera Rivers)
"Evidently, participation in extracurricular activities, even those obviously associates with academic achievement leads to increased commitment to school and school values which leads indirectly to increased academic success."
According to the article: The Path to Academic Success (Sera Rivers)
"In addition, physical activity increases brain function and concentration levels, which leads to higher grades."
According to the article: After school activities can change a child's life" (Janet Benavente)
"After school programs can provide extra time for career exploration, skill development, service learning, and internships to prepare them for college and work."
Counterclaim
Being involved in an activity causes a scheduled life for the child, which takes away from care free moments spent with family.
According to the article: Negative Aspects of Extracurricular Activities (James Ronald)
"If you're a student who needs a little longer than your peers to finish your homework, an activity that takes up several hours every afternoon after school may not leave you with sufficient time to get all of your work done."
According to the article: Negative Aspects of Extracurricular Activities (James Roland)
"When much of a young person's life is scheduled, little time remains for the carefree moments that foster discovery and imagination."
According to the article: Pros and Cons of Extracurricular Activities(Health Research Funding)
"This con is one of the primary reasons why the closeness within a family decreases. Their leisure and bonding time with family is put at risk."
Interview: Greg Morris
"They may miss an assignment because of a really busy day."
According to Nikki Wilson
"Some athletes can have life-long injuries that occur when they are participating in sports."
According to Nikki Wilson
"Sometimes athletes push their bodies to a breaking point and over work themselves at a young age when their bodies are still developing."
