The speech class thought me how to be a listener, because if you ask me, I will rather go home after I spoke each meeting. Although it's mandatory, I'm glad I was there. I find listening to my classmates really refreshing. Knowing what their interest and how they interpret problems. I definitely learn a lot of information, from yoga to solar panel, reflexology to glass staining.
The way I prepared myself for this book was on every page I had at least about three sticky notes stating the important facts and at the end of the chapter I had a one sentence summary stating the main idea opic of that chapter. This method I have found out has helped me the most it helps me remember certain things better due to my short-term memory loss. For my writing method, I tend to make outlines so I don’t get off topic. Both of my reading and writing method I have discovered for myself throughout my school years has helped me learn better and just in generally better myself academic wise.
“The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.” Ray L. Wilber’s statement is one I came to realize after becoming a summer camp counselor for girls ages seven to twelve. Only in my first few days as a counselor, my eyes were forced open to see the greatness inside each of my campers. For some children these gifts only need nurtured; others require assistance in uncovering their distinction. Here in lies my passion: to convince each child I meet of his or her infinite potential. Each child contains a gift vital to the well-being of the surrounding world.
Growing up, I always loved helping and taking care of people. After high school I became and EMT and it was a job that I loved but had to give up after having children. Being able to help someone in their time of need, just gave me the satisfaction of knowing that I had a purpose in this world. Now that my children are getting older, I have decided to take back the reins of my life and go back to school to become a registered nurse. With nursing, there can be very different scopes of practice.
My instructor Jennifer Jackson said this time “ Bravo! This is one of the strongest revisions I’ve seen yet.” This essay gave me so much confidence and made me feel I can actually write something interesting. Also, I sent my paper to The Writing Center, after I submitted my paper to my instructor to see any other mistakes I could have to improve my writing skills. I received a very good feedback from them after three or four days of submitting my paper, they said, “ my paper was pretty good. I needed to work on some minor mistakes such as spacing, omitting the work “that” when I did not need
The verbal skills that I am demonstrating are a strong positive feeling about the topic during the entire presentation, the voice is clear, pronounced most of the words correctly and most of the members can hear the presentation. The non-verbal communication skills that I improved on our consistent use of direct eye contact with the audience, but still returns to notes and made movements or gestures that enhance articulation. The verbal skills that I have demonstrated this semester during my oral presentations because I use flashcards and add extra information based on Cosmetology, Stress Management, and Verbal-Linguistic Intelligence. The non-verbal skills that I have demonstrated this semester during my oral presentations are learning how
About thirty percent of the children...successfully delayed gratification until the researcher returned (Lehrer 4). Now, from these results of the experiment, parents should really apply this experiment or even try it on their children. If their children are part of the thirty percent that got two treats, their future will be a bright one. Mischel states that he "sent out a questionnaire to all the reachable parents....subjects who had participated in the marshmallow task, who were by then in high school. He asked about every trait...from their capacity to plan...to their ability to “cope well with problems” and get along with their peers.
It is essential that I include multiple tone switches during the dialogue in my essays, so I do not lose interest from the audience. Using everything that we have learned in this class--like creating a mood and having an engaging voice--it is my goal to become more self-aware
In school taking a 1010 college class as a senior was okay because I had already had this teacher twice already, and I learned how to manage my procrastination so that was good. Taking basically all of the science classes was another kind of process to see what kind of things I liked and I would say that Anatomy and Physiology was my favorite class by far. Dissecting buffalo hearts and sheep eyes was the best part of that class and I will forever remember cutting into that baby pig Lavern. Trying a lot of different activities was really beneficial to me there were a lot of different lessons to be learned in each of those groups and sports. It helped round me out a little bit so I could see both the academic and the athletic sides of the school.
My favorite part of being a counselor was getting to know the campers and being the best counselor to them. I have attended the JCC since I was in Kindergarten, I always wanted to be in Habimah and when I got the chance, I never wanted to leave. Unfortunately, there comes a point when you have to graduate and move on. My way of moving on was becoming a counselor and giving back to the campers what was always given to me. This summer really impacted me as a person because seeing the smiles on everyone’s faces, taught me that community service does change this world for the
I definitely can do this.” Somehow, I started feeling that I can do it. That I can say my speech without messing up and embarrassing myself in front of all my classmates and their parents. I reached the front of the room, feeling a lot better about my speech. My teacher handed me a certificate and we turned to where my parents were sitting and smiled so they could take a few pictures. Then, my teacher stepped away to the side of the room, so I could begin.
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.
Those three were the individual ones that I seemed to identify the most with but there are common factors that are the same in each and every one of these students. Most of them were motivated by their parents or had some external force holding them accountable. They all had outlets such as sports or even just taking walks to keep them grounded. Mine was reading, I knew when I was younger that reading a book when I was going through something always help, it seemed like I was in a new world. Finally, even though they were all first generation students they still knew from the very beginning that they would graduate college.
Unit 1 Activity 3: Throughout this course, I have been able to develop a wide variety of many different skills, from when I first attended St Louis I had a reasonable understanding of my reading and speaking skills, after reviewing the listening and speaking content and completing the assignments it has helped me improve so much not only in school but in my everyday life since the first day I attended St. Louis improving my skills and helping me to Avoid distractions, listening for the main idea and supporting details, Asking questions, and Visualizing. An example from the course is the Rick Mercer report on the issue of young voters that was shown in class, it was extremely effective in helping me correct my the previous listening skill errors I had made in past assignments, from encouraging the
I believe Walden University created an honest environment by teaching all students about plagiarism, how to avoid it, as well as, the consequence. I always tell my kids; integrity is doing the right thing even when no one is looking. Walden University (2012) has developed modules which are focused on us learning how to have academic integrity in our writing. Being enrolled in an online school requires all students to have integrity on exams, discussions and papers. Honest students are most successful because they completed the work and put all their efforts into
