I knew that I needed to not just put in the same effort as other kids my age but far more. I needed to show others that yes, I am not from this country, but I am capable of doing as good and if not better. Looking back, I can proudly say that my all my hard work ever since has paid off. Today, I am a thriving early college student. At the age of fourteen, I was accepted into an Early College High School that has allowed me to take dual credit courses since my freshman year of high school.
Being a part of advanced placement classes in middle school, I expected loads of difficult work to come my way once I entered Fenway High School. These advanced classes prepared me well to succeed in high school. Although I took these higher classes, I was never good at math. Math was my worst subject because I did not like dealing with numbers. I am a history and science type of student, I prefer learning these subjects rather than math.
This module and coursework requirements were directed to present some crucial and effective experience for me. During the entire course, I had learnt a number of different learning, which can be proved quite helpful for me to build a successful and attractive career ahead. I can present the significance of the coursework activities done in terms of my learning from this subject. The reflection of the coursework learning can be presented as below: Problems faced during the research work: Although I have been able to finish my coursework requirements within the time frame. But I had to face a number of different issues and problems related to the process of this research.
While I do know some of the rules, due to my previous English teachers in school, there is still much that I do not know. But, through the course of this past semester I have learned a great deal about different and new rules. This class has taught me a great deal about writing and how to correctly write an essay. Writing is a system of many rules and is a way for people to express their creativity. This class has given me much room to express myself creatively and gain more knowledge.
I believe that I am able to help others with certain issues as I have gone through many experiences from being at this school for several years now, and I know how to deal with different problems others may be facing now. Even if I have not gone through the same things others have, I still find it quite easy for me to empathise with other people, which helps me be able to think of different solutions to different problems. From helping others, this would also help me to learn and overcome my own
However, there are underlying issues for math and English standards. The Common Core math attempts to emphasize “... on breaking down numbers into their component parts so that kids better understand what it means to add, subtract, multiply and divide” and includes visuals to demonstrate math concepts (NPR). However, Common Core math actually overcomplicates simple arithmetic as it requires students to explain the process behind how they reach the answer. Another concern for Common Core math standards is that it will not be able to prepare students for college by the time they graduate high school. Despite how thoroughly planned out the teaching plans for math are, “the standards set a floor, not a ceiling.
As a team member I was able to present myself and was able to put my views and ideas. This project helped me to understand myself better and I realised that I can work in any situation with anyone. I will always try to work in similar collaborative approach and try to improvise myself. It was a good learning opportunity for me. I have gained experience and skills from my teammates during the project.
School is the place for learning and that is what we will do. If you take a huge general look your school there is a lot of different people who mesh into this community of people. That is so fascinating to me is seeing all of these people who are working together to get to the subject that they want. When you are going through school and even life you are going to meet a lot of people and they are going to impact your life in some way. If you are educated in the right way in high school you should be prepared for what is to come in college.
Would a parent feel unaccomplished if they are unable to provide an answer to their child’s question? And the reason they are unable to provide for their child’s education is that they lack some of their own. Can parents afford to help their children if they have no basic knowledge on different subjects? For instance, if their child develops a passion for math, but both of the parents have studied and demonstrated a fervor for English will they have the capacity to help their child grow and evolve with math or will they try to demolish their child's dream and attempt to change it into theirs. Having basic knowledge of all subjects is an important thing because basic knowledge can benefit you grow in other fields, in almost every field you plan to pursue a career there will be some basic math or some basic English.
As I am still exploring what area of the field I want to work in, I believe that this internship will expose me to unique experiences that will help me find my passion. I was previously selected to participate in the High School KP Launch program, which helped me get a fell as to what a full-time job feels like in the real world. I can assure that if I am reselected in the KP Launch program, I will take advantage of everything the program offers including the skills and experiences from people who have worked their way to where they are
As a senior at Little Falls High School, I truly believe my time here has brought me various opportunities to succeed and accomplish goals for not only myself, but my school and community as well. The opportunities given to the body of students at Little Falls stays true to the school 's mission statement: To be educationally affective and academically effective. Personally, all of my high school achievements, activities and future goals have and will continue to represent my experience at Little Falls. The most important thing a school can provide to its students is a quality education. Especially within Little Falls High School the tools that faculty, and even other students ensure provide an environment to which anyone can thrive.
For example, in the heading “Many students aren’t ready”, the author states “Some of them didn 't take enough math, some took the wrong math and some managed to pass the classes without learning the math”. The evidence explains that even though a student may pass a particular math course, they aren’t prepared to take college level math or even understand the concept of that math course. In the heading “Your child needs math every year” the author explains that just because some students took a higher level math in seventh or eighth grade and are able to “fulfill minimum admission requirements for all but the most selective colleges by the end of junior year” doesn’t mean they should take a break once they become a senior. Once they do take a break then taking college level math will be hard for
School has taught me a wide array of knowledge that will assist me when I get into the real world. It has helped me have better reasoning, problem solving, and memory skills. Without school, I wouldn’t be nearly as intelligent or mature as I am today. I also wouldn’t have met all of my friends, who’ve helped shape me into the man I am today. As I’ve gotten deeper into my education, I realized that every year the stress levels and stakes get a bit higher.
Professionally, as I have written above, I learned more about a future role I can play in a school and different ways to be successful in that role. I gained a new set of eyes for looking at an elementary school. It is easy to assume that all children are nice because they are young, but sadly, bullies are everywhere. I also gained new perspective for day to day life. Just because someone is not outwardly struggling, does not mean that a struggle is not there.
My membership alone has taught me the balance and compromise needed when working with other people and participants of the same association. Being an officer, however, has heightened my experience because it has given me the opportunity to lead and command. I know this will help prepare me for future applications. This role has also shaped and defined my skills of arrangement and design. As a Social officer, it is one of my many duties to plan events and celebrations and to make sure that they are carried out magnificently.
