As long as they don't chew loudly or dispose of the gum outside the trash can, I don't see the problem.
Gum helps to "shut up" people, because their mouths are occupied, allowing them to think instead of talk.
Also, chewing gum may speed up reading. "Spreeder.Com" claims the reason why people read too slow is because of "internal voice", a delay in which the mouth must move as the reader reads. Chewing gum occupies the mouth, this allowing faster reading times without the habit of internal voice.
It does help so.... Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes
Teachers are always telling students that the reason behind the gum policy is because students put the gum under desks, chairs, etc. Why do kids really put gum under the desk? Here’s why, they are afraid of getting in trouble so they put it under the desk when they are done. But if students didn’t get in trouble for chewing gum then it would end up in the right place. My question is why can’t teachers give us the responsibility and then teach us how to use it, instead of completely taking it away from everybody.
Kids get rid of nervous energy by chewing gum. THis helps them focus on a task, such as a test. As long as the student chews quietly it won't affect anyone around them. It is similar to tapping a pencil or tapping a foot or chewing fingernails, which can be more distracting.
Kids that chew gum are more focused during class and they will learn more from the class and they wont have to teach themselves the wrong way to do something. Chewing gum also helps with memory, so when it comes to the test, kids will remember more from their daily lessons than a non-chewer.
It helps memory and brain development and makes you cleverer and better and stronger and thinner and much more cooler and it is way better! Most people that chew gum are more acedemic than other students! Scientists have done tests you know! It's not rocket science you know duh !
I Suggest Students Should Chew On Trident.
Not Only It Has A Good Flavor, But Also It Gives You Good Breath.
They Should Provide Trident Stalls In School And Each Box Is About 25 Cents.
It Can Distract You From Annoying Children.
Just Remember, Teach Students To Wrap The Used Chewing Gum In Tissue Before Throwing It.
The sticking gum to chair and desks can be prevented if you say no to gum they will do it anyway then they cant throw it away but if its ok then they can throw it out and it wont be a problem. And besides it can really help a lot with tests and scores it helps the brain therefore helping the kids.
Gum can play a large part in classes if they would only let it. I understand that it drives most people crazy when others pop their gum but that can be dealt with easily. As for cramming it under things and on desks and other furniture, you can make the students clean it themselves and that would pretty much stop the sticking gum where its not supposed to be. Scientist have done research that when chewing it pumps more oxygen into your blood and makes it flow faster causing more oxygen to reach the brain in less time so the students are able to think better.
Honestly, I don't see why chewing gum in school was outlawed at schools in the first place. What comes wrong from it? "Students place it under desks, and make weird noises with it." Students are going to litter at school, it's just a fact of life. Gum is no different. But most importantly, gum can help almost all students focus on instruction because it's one more thing to occupy them while listening to a boring lecture, still giving them the ability to pay attention, AND not cause distractions to anybody else in the class. What more could you want?
You should not eat gum because it may cause cavities. I never
got cavities because I don't eat gum. I know you don't
want to get cavities and I don't ether so if you don't eat gum you will not
lose your teeth. So don't eat gum it is bad!
There is a disorder out there that affects a good bit of people called Misophonia (literally, the hatred of sound) or Selective Sound Sensitivity Syndrome (4s) which I have. It makes eating with others or being near others that are eating a horrible, rageful, and stressful experience.
And let me tell you, most gum-chewing students in classes chew like cows. Their brains are incapable of understanding how to chew with their mouths closed so that they do not smack. It is obnoxious and disgusting.
Also, most kids can and will stick gum to a desk. Run your hands across the bottoms of desks in any classroom of any grade; I dare you! It's repulsive and it stays there until someone musters up the courage to go past their job description and scrape gum from their desks.
There are those that say that gum can help you concentrate. Believe me, this is absolutely true, but it's not the only method in the world to help someone concentrate. It's also not the only appetite suppressant in the world. It IS one of the most horrid things to misophoniacs like me.
Thank you, everyone. Continue this debate.
Gum In school should not be allowed! People stick it to desk! It districts teachers and other people in the class! I like gum and all but school is not the place to chew it! My classes always get interrupted by gum chewers and I can't stand it because I come to school to learn! Not to listen to teachers yelling at my peers to spit their gum out!
Yes I think that kids should be able to chew gum in class! It gives them something to do and when I was there age I was obsessed with chewing it. So I needed something to chew on or I would go crazy!!! If kids are like I am they need something to do. And some gum is good for you like it cleans your teeth!!
Gum sticks to everything, especially under desks. Its nasty , imagine finding saliva covered gum under your desk, I mean imagine the germs! Its disgusting and , when you touch gum you can get it all over your fingers. That doesn't help to work , being covered in something that was in someone else's mouth.
Most of the arguments for explain how it can help students concentrate. Why not use a stress ball, or a hand grip exerciser?
As for keeping them quiet? They still speak with their gum in, only with less eloquence and a white bit of plastic rolling around their mouths. Plus the teachers will want them to occasionally speak up and answer/ ask questions.
Gum has no place in schools.
One reason, why gum should not be allowed in school is that it is a big destration of students. The used gum is likely to end up under chairs, desks and other apparatus. I think some kid just not listen when teachers say no but some kids still do it though
If you let 1 ban go, people will use the same reasons to ban other things. This could lead to a unorganized school. People wouldn't go to that school. That school would die. Then what would we do. All because you let chewing gum get in your way. Don't let gum get in the way.
It is a sticky substance and it sucks,it might make students concentrate when there worried,but seriously, its gonn affect evrything in their body.Starting from teeth to neck to heart and to all over the body because it has chemicals and it has sugar like over 6 grams which is really bad.I know there is sugar free gum,but where can buy them,sugarunfree gums are every whehre
Kids chew to much gum. Most gum is bad for your teeth. It distracts kids when they're trying to blow a bubble. Gum is loud. Kids chew it to loud. Some kids need it quiet to think. When kids are distracted they can get late assignments. Also if the gum is bad for your teeth you could get your teeth drilled. TOO MUCH GUM!!!!!!
