High school teachers evaluate writing on five main points: vocabulary, spelling, punctuation, logic and the combination of ideas. This is essential for high-school students, and these skills form the basis of the way individuals will write for the rest of their life. If college students fail to improve their writing skill this could also affect them in their carriers after graduation, “A 1992 survey of 402 companies reported by the Associated Press noted that executives identified writing as the most valued skill but said 80 percent of their employees at all levels need to improve” R. H., Phd. (n.d.). Spelling and punctuation are a basic way to understanding English, and depth of knowledge is shown through vocabulary.
This seems like interesting because there was no computer in our elementary school in Bingol, the Kurdish region in Turkey. The elementary school was the worst street school in Bingol, however, I have won the second ranking high school in Bingol with my general exam points, normally all regions are formally accept equal but in reality we definitely do not see same education as well as the others. When I met with computer in the high school, I had passed by myself. I insisted on my father to purchase a computer for playing computer games. After a while, the games was being boring pushed me doing something different.
However, MJC doesn 't provide a writing test to their assessment. I wanted to take English-50 last semester to practice writing, but all of the classes were full. Instead, I took 15 units of other courses last semester, and managed to practice writing. Though, I did not expect non-English courses to be heavy in writing.
Many people have friends at school and that is the only time we see them. I know that this is why many people come, but you really need to focus on your career because once Junior High ends you are already in highschool and after that you are in college and this will determine what path you want to be on. Relationships at school with friends and God are different than being in the real world. At Escondido Christian School you are allowed to freely speak and talk about God without being judged and yelled at. Even at public schools now they don't allow you to freely speak about your religion.
I have never lived in a place for more than two years (I have lived in nine different states), and the lack of stability has made developing close friendships impossible. I think that going to college would help me make close friends, which is something I have never gotten to experience. I am also extremely excited to be able to follow a curriculum and courses all the way through. Switching high schools all of the time meant switching curriculum, and having to learn new things at each school that did not build on what I previously had learned. I had to do a lot of catching up each time we moved, and it will be nice to not have to do that anymore.
With the invitation to education most students wouldn’t achieve as high of a standard they are capable of. I believe this is a major part in education. Most teachers know the educational abilities of every student, but when they see that an individual isn’t reaching that mark they push them to do better for the benefit of the student. In both of these stories the teachers believed that the student could do better, and they tried their best to show the student what their capabilities are. One of the hardest parts in education for the students is to get the invitation from their teachers.
Everyone always has their opinion on things, and everyone feels differently about certain subjects. It’s the people that have the courage to speak their mind to others that really plant the seed of change. Personally, I’m a rather shy person, and it has been difficult finding the courage to speak my opinion more. However, these past few years of high school have really impacted me in a positive way, and really built up my everyday courage to stand up for my thoughts. For example, I stood up last semester in front of my English teacher, who specializes in teaching exceptionally well the abilities to do well on the reading of the ACT, and said straight to his face that standardized testing is not beneficial to students.
When I went to Babson’s open house on October 10th, it was a completely new and unique feel. It started with a panel discussion and then shifted from the auditorium to the classroom. We broke up in groups and were to create something to keep a phone battery at 100% at all times without being plugged in an outlet and without changing the phone itself. We thought of a skin that would charge the battery by using heat, solar light, and kinetic energy. To this day I have not felt this kind of teamwork emphasized in a program and it makes me excited to think of studying in an environment like this.
Transitioning from high school to college was a big difference. Materials from high school was provided to all students free of charge. Students only needed to buy materials they needed; pens, pencils, notebooks, etc. While in college you're responsible for everything, either you're living on campus or not, it was your responsibility for all materials. I knew college was going to be expensive, but I never realized a simple history book would cost me $250, without tax.
Welcome to High school, where you have to find all your classes on your own, and decide whether you want to be late to class or not. During your high school years you have to grow up dramatically and make important decisions. Unlike middle school, high school students get far more homework and classwork. Students should never
I love staying after school and talking with my teachers at high school may be the only opportunity I have to do so. I would discuss anything; Things I don 't understand, ideas and thoughts I have, and positions I had on certain issues. Almost every time, I 'd walk away just thinking for a long while on the bus right home about whatever I had talked about. Physical science and computer science happened to be that topic most of the time. I feel it was necessary and worthwhile, because most of what you learn isn 't in the school curriculum.
From the start, I made the decision that I wanted to do my very best in high school to help my future. Ever since I’ve made this decision, I’ve grown into a hard working, knowledgeable person. School has made me wiser and more prepared for the
