At school, I rarely felt challenged and I would enjoy being in a program that makes me think about real-world situations in a way that will help me later in life. I would like to expand my knowledge concerning negotiation and debate in a friendly setting. Last year, I learned things at LCM that I had never heard of before. It would be nice to be learning these skills for the entire year, as LCM is my only source of information concerning debate and
Golf is my thing. I play to have time to myself to think, I play with family and friends for fun, and I play to hone my skills and be the best possible contender I can be when it comes to the competition side. So when I think about my personal biggest failure that I can recall, I would have to say golf is involved. My team at school is very good, we have heated tryouts every year just to make the team. As a freshman our golf team won state and I feel like that really set the tone for what was expected of the rest of us for our high school years.
I know that outlining and main ideas of a lecture will help me when I will be review for a test. Taking break is key when writing a paper or anything. They longest that a college student we interviewed went without sleep was three days. Technology is a key for everything in college because without it you can not write any papers at all, laptops are the number thing that every college student will use. The way that I will have to talk to my teachers is saying hello and going to office hours where I can really focus about whatever I may need to
Even till this day I am not good at math but I am not ashamed to ask for help and have my parents sit down and do homework with me since my dad is good at math. My parents really encouraged me in school to come and talk to tell without feeling ashamed. My mom told me that when I finally got the hang of math that she noticed a difference in me I was more excited to go to
In my days of substituting, it was clear that most students couldn’t answer many math questions without having a cell phone or computer in front of them. Instead of teaching students, many teachers have turned to technology as a means of teaching. It’s okay to incorporate technology as a teaching method, but I do not agree that it should be their only means of teaching. The traditional ways of teaching allowed students to work for their answers. All in all, technology has proven to be an advantage for me as it has allowed me to complete my degree online.
I started my editing and publishing classes. Halfway through the semester, I was sitting through Pentateuch class when I had an epiphany: I loved my minor more than my major. I got excited about Advanced Grammar and Technical Editing, but I dreaded having to take Hermeneutics and Minor Prophets. So I pulled up the academic catalog on my laptop (yes, during class; at least it wasn’t PinterestFacebook). I found PWID because all the editing and publishing classes were inside the
While my bad things are that sometimes I would be late to a doctor appointment, activation, and therapy because I have to stay in class the whole hour then go change and drop my stuff off to go to my appointments. In conclusion I’m very happy with the class because it help me understand how my classes are going to be when I move up classes. I take English again next semester. I’m probably going to be pooped out from all the essays we did from this semester’s English class, but at least I know how rough it’ll
One of my favorite things to do in elementary school was color. I always found it calming. Whenever it was too cold or snowy and we had recess inside I would usually go for the coloring sheets and crayons. I also loved playing board games. I was frequently asking my mother to play a board game with me.
During this essay I’ll be conducting an observation amongst students outside of a school setting. For this study I collect about a 2 hour and 30 minutes playing PS4 with some friends. Mind you i didn’t tell them I was observing for a study I just acted how I would normally act amongst group laughing, telling jokes, and partaking in their conversation. Since we were playing video games and we are so competitive I instantly sought out to watch how everyone attitude was. The game was the determining factor depending on who ever was winning a losing there attitude was really happy or sad.
My personal memoir from this semester was written about a particular game of chess with a friend. I started by spending lots of time listing different ideas, and understanding how well those ideas would fit into a personal memoir format. This paper taught me how to use words to paint a picture in the reader’s mind. It was difficult to find one main point and keep that point relevant throughout the entire paper. Instead, I found it easier to divide the main point up into smaller ideas and explain each of those individually and then connect them all at the end of the paper.
An area in my life that I have followed utilitarianism, is when I was choosing who to be friends with in Middle School. When I was in Middle School, I was one of the athletes and because of that, I was fairly popular. I did not have a judgmental personality, so I became friends with whoever I had something in common with. However, since I loved science and mathematics, I had a lot of nerdy and geeky friends. So at lunch time, when I was sitting with my athletic friends, I would see one of my geeky friends sitting by themselves, so I would tell him to come and sit and eat lunch with me.
I came after school, early morning, and anytime I was free to prepare for the test. I studied in comfort, I willed myself to a soft chair, some snacks on a table, at my house. It was out of my normalities to open my eyes to my books, notes, homework, and not at the TV for the first time. I looked at the clock, I rubbed my eyes, an hour had elapsed. I needed to get my head to focus, use my time wisely, and study because this is my only chance, not to fail.
