Good teachers should give Challenging tasks to their students

Through out my experience at school, I really like my teacher giving me challenging tasks to preform. However, this is not a way to know whether the teacher is good or not. The following are reasons behind setting challenging tasks to students.

Challenging tasks will encourage the students to think hard to solve it and will also help them to pool out the best skills, knowldge in them. For example, one day, my english teacher asked us to choose a play and act a part of the scene infront the whole class. That was really challenging as I was a shy person. Firstly it took my days to choose which play and even more to practice. Unbeleivable I did very well and every one were impressed. No one beleived that this quite girl would have the courage and act infront of 3o others. Even I didnot know that I am good in acting.

Moreover, the challenging tasks given to students will help them to know how to deal with the problems in the real life. In the future, maybe one day you will be put in the same situation. However there you will be alone. No one will tell you your solution to the problem is wright or not. For instance, my business teacher gave us a case study of a man trying to increase the size of his business with an economical disaster. So we had to think for strategies the man can implement to improve his business or even to continue. Well, some day any one can be put in the same situation and this case study might give him clues to succeed.

To sum up, challenging tasks will make the students think better and brainstorm new ideas. However I do not recommend being very hard that it can not be solved as this will discourage students.

Need to change or add a concluding sentence for both body paragraph, so that you can sum up your point better.

Also, I would delete the last sentance and make a new one , because I think is better not to counter yourself.

--> Throughout my experiences in school, I really like that my teachers have given me challenging tasks to perform.
( How does that sound? )

The following are reasons behind setting challenging tasks to students.

--> I think you should delete this sentence. You should show not tell in writing first of all. And it doesn't really get you anywhere.

Challenging tasks will encourage the students

--> Challenging tasks will encourage students...

to think hard to solve it and will also help them to pool out the best skills, knowldge in them.

--> to think hard to solve (what do you mean by it? you mean like problems??) and will help to pool out the best skills. (interesting, i never heard the phrase "pool out" haha )

part of the scene infront the whole class.

--> part of the scene in front of the whole class.

as I was a shy person.

--> because I am a shy person.

Unbeleivable I did very well and every one were impressed.

--> I did unbelievably well and everyone was impressed. (sounds better : ))

and act infront of 3o others

--> to act in front of 30 other students.

- Okay you give an example of a challenging task you experienced. But you didn't REALLY explain how you grew from that challenge and why it was good for the teacher to assign it for the students. I mean was it really "challenging" for everyone? Because your prompt here is whether teachers should give challenging tasks for their students.

-You should give more, and different, examples of a challenging task.
- And really explain how students can benefit from them.

Good Luck : )

Through outout

One word...

I have enjoyed really like the challenges my teacher provided me with.giving me challenging tasks to preform.

This probably isn't the best way to fix it, but you should definitely change the tense.

Hmmm... Judging by the tone of your essay, this doesn't seem like an admission essay.
If it is, then you should be more personal when discussing whatever the topic you want to talk about. For instance,

Challenging tasks will encourage the students to think hard to solve it and will also help them to pool out the best skills, knowldge in them.

Sounds like an intro for an argumentative or persuasive essay rather than a personal essay that reflects your experience...

Also, regardless of whether this is an admission essay, posting the prompt for it will be helpful to the readers at essayforum.com, or anybody else who would look over your essay.

Anyway, I hope this helps.
