I have learned so much from my high school american history course so far and I’m genuinely shocked by how interesting the information we are learning is. When I generally think about history it bores me but when I started learning about history this year everything changed. I think it’s very important to know history because without those historic events we quite possibly wouldn’t be where we are today. So that’s what I will be trying to do. Teach.
My service to the army at Valley Forge is soon ending.I have decided to re-enlist for three reasons which are: Hope, the army needs me, and for my family and the hope of surviving. The event that caused this whole war to occur were the protesting and the Boston Tea party that happened in 1773. I felt that the Boston Tea Party was a right and wrong decision when it happened because we should not use violence to cooperate with our “enemies”, we should use reason. Even though the British kind of deserved that protest. Also the Declaration of Independence caused the war by angering the British in 1776.
I choose to research the career path of Crime Scene Investigator. A CSI is usually a person who assists a police officer in investigations. CSIs are sometimes called Forensic Science Technicians. I decided to research this topic because I wanted to get a feel of the career path because it sparked my interest about year and I´ve been intriged ever since. It’s the career I’m thinking about going to school to do.
I am writing to apply to become a certified instructor for the UConn Early College Experience (the “UConn ECE”). My background and qualifications make me uniquely qualified to be a certified instructor for the UConn ECE as I have Masters Degrees (CAPITALIZATION???) in both education and Special Education and in addition to my high school teaching experience I also have twenty years’ experience teaching history at Hillyer College at the University of Hartford. I am passionate about history, which I believe is more about the study of historical developments and trends rather than the memorization of dates and facts. My enthusiasm for history is most evident when I am teaching as demonstrated by my highly energized and animated lecture
There are many reasons why we should teach children about the Holocaust in school in 8th grade. One of the reasons is the valuable skills they will learn. Students will learn to put themselves in other people's shoes and understand the decisions they make along with learning not to use prejudice or racism. A quote from an article at AnneFrank.org talks about the information and skills students can learn from a lesson about Anne Frank or the Holocaust. Students learn “Where anti semitism can lead to”, where “discrimination can lead to”, and discussing the “choices and dilemmas people faced during the war and also that history is not so clear cut.”
Introduction When I first saw the syllabus of this class, I was looking forward to doing the service learning project as I have only been to only one in the past. I believe that service learning is important as part of a quality college education because I believe that people learn best through experiences. Also, service learning is important as part of a quality college education because, during the service, there will be numerous opportunities for students to learn new things. For instance, I am a business major student but I know about the history of the Gold Park and the benefits of the plants there through the service learning project. Now, I also learn about the history of the Coast Salish Tribe and their culture.
After IBMYP I decided to enter full IB Diploma Program. It helps me achieve academic success and is helping me become a well-rounded learner that is capable of thinking outside-the-box, analyzing, questioning, and connecting ideas. As a result, I am currently in the top five percent of my class and am ranked as the valedictorian. In my academic life there has been many “bumps in the road”, but with my determination and willpower I was able to overcome each one of those bumps. The decision I made in eight grade molded my path to success for the upcoming years.
Growing up, I was told that students are taught history to prevent repeats of mistakes made in the past. Museums are buildings in which artifacts of interest are put on display for the public to learn about the history of the artifact and the role it played in the past. As years go by, museums are being replaced with the easiness and convenience of technology. With more children being immersed into electronics, the connection to the past is lost. The removal of the Confederate flag from the capitol of South Carolina removes a piece of history from the public eye and further disconnects newer generations from an important event in America’s past.
The question was to find the material that was used for shoe in that era and that it was not cotton. He demanded this answer after we had had finished touring the place. As part of the requirement for my English class, I had to go to the museum. The visit to the Manassas museum helped broaden my understanding about art and also add more knowledge to a story we read and researched about Martin Luther King Jr and his fight for freedom and an
The only class I would say that felt like an actual honors class would have been my AP world history class. Coincidentally, the instructor of that class was also the adult mentor of the National Honor Society program at my high school. My involvement in that AP world history class actually changed my perceptions as to what education meant to me. Despite being only one class, it was enough to ignite a desire within me to really love learning and really compel me to figure out how I wanted to further my education. I asked myself this question, "Do I want to be passive and keep my head down or do I want to participate and see where it takes me?"
I came to Thomas Nelson Community College (TNCC) after transferring from Gallaudet University. I found that what I was required to take a pre-course before taking the real credit courses at TNCC called English Fundamentals 1. So, I took the class that my counselor and my interpreter, who worked in 25 years at TNCC, recommended me to meet Ms. Dubbé. This semester I have improved my reading and writing skills. I am a better student because I have learned effective strategies and pondered over my future goals.
Spencer, I found it rather illuminating to see what research and work in research could mean for a person, especially an undergraduate student. This interview made me realize the amount of work I will have for next semester, from balancing classes with research and managing my time much more efficiently than I currently am. I also enjoy the fact that Dr. Spencer will somewhat know me before I begin his RDC course, which will hopefully mean I will be able to rely on him for help in a more common and professional manner. I hope this interview can be the gateway into a more productive and professional relationship with Dr. Spencer, with whom I am extremely excited to work
I selected WRTG 101 because it was a required class towards my undergraduate degree. This is a class that I should have taken earlier in my pursuit of my degree; it would have been extremely beneficial to me with my writing assignments for other classes. Being a student of WRTG 101 employs me to use my critical thinking skills in conjunction to my writing skills. Prior to taking this class, I thought that my writing skills were above average; however this class has provided instruction and feedback that I needed improvement in several areas. Each Monday, I would log onto UMUC.com to read the Course Content/Alerts to see what the status of my progress.
