Reading about Frederick Douglass 's struggle to learn to read and write reminded me of some difficulties I faced when I was also trying to learn. All throughout elementary school, I had to take a speech therapy class to help me learn to read. It was very difficult to learn how to read some words because of my speech impediment. However, I worked a little harder each day to sound words out right and before I knew it, I was able to read and write just as good as every other student. In a way, Douglass and I both had some difficulties we had to push through to be able to learn to read and write but if you work hard enough anything is possible.
Firstly, Procrastination is a problem I faced early in the year and I should not have. At first it did not affect me as much as I thought it would but now that the semester is almost over I am stressing over my grades. If I would have taken my time and not waited till the last minute to finish lots of my essays
For quarter three, my independent reading goal was achievable but I put off most of my reading until the last few weeks of the quarter. This quarter I wanted to read ________. I was able to reach the page count amount but I did not read a full book about the profession that I want to go into. I believe that I could have read one book on my future profession if I had not put the reading off as much. At the start of the third quarter, I read a book called Even In Paradise by Chelsey Philpot.
Reflection Paper As a writer, I feel like I really grew a lot in this past semester. I developed some specific writing strategies and techniques. Now before writing a paper, I take the time to think about it instead of just jumping into it. I will set time aside to pre-write and use writing techniques like freewriting and revising. I have learned that it is easier to begin writing the paper a week before instead of the night before.
In the semester prior I had some challenges in my english class. The challenges weren’t really bad, but the challenges were affecting my grade. For example, I would procrastinate on doing the notes for “To kill a Mockingbird”, over the christmas break. Also, I found it harder to do the notes by myself than it was with a partner. For that reason i believe I wasn’t able to complete the notes for “To Kill A Mockingbird.” Even though there were some challenges I still passed the semester final on “To Kill A Mockingbird,” with a solid B. I turned in all my work and had no missing assignments.
I’ve tried using flash cards, rewriting notes, reading notes 6x to having study groups. Honestly some study groups are unfocused and messy, while others are reliable and helpful. I tend to change course when it comes to the idea of group work. I just figured to learn the materials by doing one different method each day. If it got me to college, it’ll get me further in life.
I ending up not doing very well in the class, and took it the next semester. Which improved my skills, and my grade tremendously. Taking the same course with two different professors I knowest that each professor has different approach to the course, and how they help their students. Once I got use to the change from high school and college
Being a part of the health academy has increased my communications skills and taught me how to balance out sports, work and school. My hardest classes this year where chemistry and math but I made time after school so that the teachers would go over it again until
When I picked out my classes last spring for junior year, I struggled immensely on whether or not to sign up for advanced placement language and composition. I already had signed up for four other advanced placement courses, so by no means would I have been slacking if I defaulted to enroll in honors English in lieu of advanced placement. In addition, writing does not come easily for me either; I feel like I am in a constant state of writers block. Grammar also has a way of tripping me up too. When I sat down to think about my goals for the year, and then on, my perspective evolved though.
At the beginning of my clinical placement I felt unsure of my role and how much charge I could take when interacting with the other professionals in the classroom. However, as the year progressed and I developed relationships with my colleagues, I felt more comfortable engaging in communication. If there was general discussion about changes the teacher wanted to make to the class routine I provided suggestions, and if I was unsure about the effectiveness of something, I was able to initiate discussion about how to proceed with the topic. Furthermore, I was able to practice my professional communication by developing an effective relationship with my fellow nursing student. We took advantage of our breaks together to share ideas about our work
