In terms of academia, this year has been very important for me. I was accepted into the honours program in the Department of Psychology and I attribute this accomplishment directly to the time and effort I 've committed to my academic work for the past three years which has allowed me to obtain a very high grade point average thus subsequently being accepted in the program of my choice. That being said, I have developed many new and unique friendships and working relationships which I hope to maintain after I graduate. I have worked extremely hard this semester to maintain high grades. I am enrolled in three very time-consuming psychology classes to which I have devoted almost all of my time which has subsequently taken a toll on my social
I agree with James Baldwin because he gives lots of good reason of what is education and what education should need to be. For example he said we could look at the world for our self when we are educate. Also make our own decision and said what we feel or think about the thing that are going around us. Education is the things that make our dream come true and if we want to be something in our future than we need education to continue my dream. We also need education to become an independent our self.
The first of these themes is discovering your talents and the strengths within those talents.

Applying Ubuntu as a principle in education: The benefits: An Ubuntu-oriented structure is an appliance and a solution towards revolution. The concepts like fairness, justice, equivalence, non- discrimination, human self-respect and responsibly are mainly enhanced by the structure. The structure also represents the theory of common acceptance and dynamic obligation of the worth of different human beings (DoE, 2001:3). Postulation of the practices of consideration, humanity and respect are the basic elements that makes the schools places where the values of educating and learning prosper (DoE, 2001:14).
Profetto-McGrath, Smith, Hugo, Patel, Dussault, (2009) made mention that critical thinking is a part of the process of purposefully self-regulating one’s judgment in order to act professionally and improves one’s ability in order to make the correct decision. It is therefore the art of scrutinizing and assessing one’s thinking with the view of refining it. Within education, critical thinking goes hand in hand with the characteristics of the person; this includes cognitive maturity, truth
There are three components relating to the definition of educational knowledge: belief, truth and justification (Horsthemke, 2013). Beliefs are essential to the acquisition of knowledge, justification comes in as a learner or individual may need good reasons (justifications) for believing something and successful teaching stems from being able to make a student come to believe something (Horsthemke, 2013). Epistemology is the philosophical study of knowledge and it is based on truth
To improve learning in higher education, the primary focus should be on engaging students in a process that best enhances their learning – a process that contains feedback on the effectiveness of their learning efforts. Education must be conceived as a continuing reconstruction of experience, the process and goal of education are one and the same thing. Dewey (1897) all learning is re-learning. Learning is best facilitated by a process that draws out the students’ beliefs and ideas about a topic so that they can be examined, tested and integrated with new, more refined ideas. Learning needs the resolution of conflicts between dialectically opposed modes of adaptation to the world.
Critical Analysis of the Implementation of STEM ALP in school. Introduction 'It is not change that kills, it is the transitions' – William Bridges ‘Learning’ is synonymous to ‘change’ in reality. Change is part of our lives and is not a problem if the aim of why we have to change is clear and makes sense. In fact, if people can resonate with the purpose of changing, they will be more ready to own the change, rather than those being arbitrarily imposed on them. Understanding and accepting that change is long, continuous process that involves struggles, bewilderment and loss, is vital for future learners.
When someone says the name Condoleezza Rice the first thing that comes to most minds is the first black woman to serve as Secretary of State. Serving under both the George Bush and George W. Bush administrations she was once the presidential hopeful for the republican party. Condoleezza Rice may have an extensive political resume but she has always made education a clear priority to her. Growing up in Birmingham Alabama during the civil rights movement she experienced firsthand the effects of segregation but still became the success she is today.

In her "Bowie State University Commencement Speech" Michelle Obama encourages students to aggressively pursue their own education because of its extreme value. In her speech, Obama reminded the students of the many challenges and obstacles African Americans had to pass through in their battle to obtain an education. The battle which offered them a better life, and also the opportunity to new generations to obtain a high-level education. A reminder that Michelle Obama gives for the sole purpose of making a so-called of awareness to those young people who no longer strive to obtain a higher education; even though they have the education opportunity that is widely available to everyone. Indeed Michelle Obama is right.
