I realized that I was paying to be here, and that if I was paying to do something I was going to do it well. I can now proudly say that my work ethic is something I can boast about. I no longer procrastinate like I did in high school. My grades are much higher than high school with consistent A’s. I even managed to get an A in algebra which was my hardest class in high school.
I have taken away many useful strategies and information from the College 101 class I took this summer. This course has given me enough information to help me feel confident that I will be successful in the rest of my highschool experience and my future college experience. This course has given me skills that will stay with me for the rest of my life. Learning to study properly, avoid procrastination, and take notes correctly has been something that has already helped me tremendously. It has helped me feel less stressed on a day-to-day basis as well as improving my school work quality.
The diversity of the group brings out different approaches to confront any math problem. One resource that the teacher could use to make sure cultural diversity is expressed, could be to use teaching strategy websites. It is up to the teacher to make sure students are being taught multicultural lessons. The teacher shows consideration in presenting cultural diversity, by letting the students work in groups. The students can absorb any information from other students who have a diverse cultural background.

As a former English Language Learner (ELL) student, I remember my ESOL teacher using direct instructions when I first came to the U.S. through middle school and high school. The teacher used modeling freely and placing me in groups with other students that were fluent in both languages that helped with tutoring when I had a difficult time understanding the teacher. Through this process of learning I began to communicate and slowly learned the English language. As a paraprofessional at Hillsborough High School, I use similar direct instructional strategies for my ELL students because it helps me plan in advance what lesson the teacher is going to teach and it allows me to clearly present the lesson in both the English and Spanish language.
Pursuing the ultimate American Dream with the knowledge that many young children are denied the opportunity, for instance, my mother, cia, who due to the lack of resources failed to pursue a nursing degree, has encouraged many Latino-Americans. Many Latino-Americans, including myself, aspire to surpass poverty and discrimination. Through my success, I will undoubtedly change the world, help those in need, and utilize the knowledge I will acquire through my degree to assist those who lack the opportunity to seek a promising
Coming from a poor family, being shy, and moving around a lot, Sandra learned she needed to overcome these problems by accomplishing her goals. When she finally settled down and ran away from home to go to college, she had more confidence in herself, and was heading towards her objectives. For example, “I’ve done all kinds of things I didn’t think I could do since then.” Eventually she learned life is what everyone makes of it. Success to Ben Franklin is to achieve moral perfection, and . Sandra Cisneros came from a poor family, but overcame it by moving out and becoming a successful writer.
The main reason why this is so stronger is that I believe that no one could ever fill in her place; she was meant for that suffering to happen to her because it was her story share and no one else could have done it better. As a young teenager in high school my insecurities grow each day. Her words made me realize that we all have insecurities even more than others, but we still deserve to be love and treated equal even if we do not deserve at
STATEMENT OF GRANT PURPOSE Stephen Hill, Spain, English Teaching Assistant I wish to undertake an English Teaching Assistant opportunity in Spain to peruse my passion for teaching and training. With the knowledge and experience I will gain from teaching in Spain, I plan to look for employment opportunities within the U.S. state department. Opportunities that would make use of my knowledge and experience with Spain would be of particular interest to me. I have been complimented on my patience and ability to explain concepts in different ways that accommodate multiple learning styles. In order to engage with students and help them to learn English I would use real world scenarios with a multi-tier approach, ensuring conversation, writing, listening, vocabulary, and grammar were all engaged.
I did not anticipate such a lively debate and discussion on the real-world problem that I had used. Although I was taken aback by this, I just let the conversation run its course before continuing. However, this was my focus strategy, so in the end the students were more engaged in the lesson, based on their concern for my dilemma and wanted to help me figure out how many balls that I had left. I think
Mrs. Lanza would then reveal the grade she gave the response, hoping that each group fell within one point value and had relatively the same constructive criticism to give. Following this, students worked on independent writing assignments on MyAccess. Accommodations/Modifications: While working on evaluating student responses to the PRCs, Mrs. Lanza utilized the document camera to project the selected responses onto the whiteboard. In addition to visually seeing the responses, Mrs. Lanza also read the responses orally to ensure that students who had trouble seeing the responses could hear them instead.
