NSU Razor's Edge Leadership Program My heart began to race. I entered the spacious lecture hall, opened the door, and before me were two hundred students glancing at me. Entering the class for the first time at Florida International University (FIU) presented unparalleled opportunities on my forthcoming journey as a high school junior. When I enrolled at FIU as a dual enrollment student, I experienced uncertainty in regard to my intended major and career choice. I took courses across multiple disciplines, yet I remained remote from the ideas presented – until I met my professor for General Chemistry during my junior year.
The students were grouped into five or six students and they were instructed to take their Civil War article and transform it into a scene from a play. The students worked in there groups for ten minutes or so and they worked out what they were going to do. Once that time was up the groups performed their plays for each other. I enjoyed watching their plays because it really showed their imagination and how they interpreted their articles.
The activity involves two circles. One circle will be the outside circle, this circle is large and everyone is a part of it, the other circle is inside the big circle and has three chairs in it. It will begin by having three assigned students in the inner circle or the “fishbowl” and they will discuss the following prompt. “Is there a possible solution to the current land and resource management issues? Are there common themes in the land and resource management amongst all the tribes?”
“In the Beginning” by Victor Wood (Downloadable from You tube) Play the song “In the Beginning”. Group the children into 2 or 3 groups. Instruct the children to choose one leader from each group who will draw the things God created, as mentioned in the song. Provide the necessary materials for the group to use. The teacher has the option to give recognition or incentive to the work each group.

Introduction To date I have completed three classes and one group facilitation exam for this semester. The aim of this assignment is to demonstrate my personal and professional learning for the duration of the module. It will discuss the definition of group work; how I planned for my group exercise; it will outline my learning as a facilitator and observer for a thirty minute exercise. I will use Bruce Tuckman 's five stage group development model to outline the stages of the group process.
Some may say that it is okay because it will not matter in death, but it will to the people that care about you and vice versa, “whether or not we give much thought to it, everyone else we know will” (Chittester, 2008). As people often say, life is too short and tomorrow is not guaranteed. We must take advantage of the time we do have and use it as an opportunity to make it the best life we can for ourselves and those who we leave behind or come after
I immediately registered for the next government class and thought it would be another interesting class. Not many students have an opportunity to study government during the most intense and exciting time in America - the presidential race. Considering it is an Honors class, I thought it would be a challenge with many assignments and exams that are due weekly. By taking my academic progress to a new level, I wanted to challenge my time-management skill and improve my writing skill; I also want to get a special recognition from the Honors institution on my transcript and separate myself from other students. Before taking the Texas Government class, I did not know that states
As a class assignment, we were to read five different rhetorical, persuasive, argumentative peices and examine their use of rhetoric to determine if it was an effective peice or not. We then chose one article to to write an essay on to discuss its rhetorical effectiveness. I had decided to write my essay on the article that I saw as the most effective as oppossed to the least. We brought our first drats into class, disscussed the articles, and had a peer editing/review session.
My assignment for the writing 101 group project was to present how to conduct an interview. The information for this presentation came from The Curious Researcher by Bruce Ballinger. My group consisted of five people, we all would present this topic together. Knowing that we had a big group for a relatively small presentation, we had to divide the groups roles up very evenly so everyone could participate. This was the first thing we did as a group.
After all the talking was over each student voted for which amendment they wanted. If it the vote was close, Miss. Cohen would decide. Also if Miss.Cohen didn’t like the amendment the class chose, she could veto it, or combine the two proposed amendments.
We also completed a Heart Transplant Exercise, where we had to list a group of people as to where who would receive a heart transplant. Each project was a team involvement where everyone would give their input and the team leader would submit it on the discussion board. Each team chooses a TV or movie that would fit in with the discussion board; it helped a lot with what we had to discuss. The course talked about forming, storming, norming, and performing.
This seminar was very informative. The instructor of this class, Dr. Elizabeth Frander, gave a lot of information more specifically on the mid-term exam. Dr. Frander clarified to the students what should be expected in the mid-term exam, and how to answer certain questions. According to her, the mid-term exam will have an about 45 questions, and all the students will have 2 hours to take that exam. Dr. Frander went over the question how to differentiate the neoplastic cells, and also the difference between the benign and the tumor cells.
