After I got home from school, I immediately started on my homework and I did not stop until I was finished. Sometimes it would take me hours to complete my homework, but I did not give up. When it comes to finals, I study until I know all the material that I am supposed to know. I start studying a week in advance to remember everything for each class. I want to get the best grade that I can get so I study as hard as Katie did.
It required me a careful time management since I am still handling two Grade 7 sections. My cooperating teacher and I maximize our free time to finish everything as early as possible to avoid rushing. Identifying the topic is the first thing that me and my cooperating teacher did. He suggested me “Mean, Median, and Mode of Ungrouped Data,” I agreed but we found out that it was already taken by one of my co-student teacher as her topic for the final teaching demonstration so Mr. Lomeda told me to choose a topic that I think I am comfortable to teach. I
Then they practice again in the afternoon and have to find time to study and complete their school work while having to find time to workout throughout the week as well. Everybody at the school is counting on the athletes to make the school look great, which requires a lot of work. So if you think college athletes have it easier than other students, remember they really do not because they are required to do more. Now after all you have read, do you believe college athletes should get
My time at St. Xavier has been constructive and highly beneficial, however, I believe that it is the cave and that life after school is the light. The school does not accurately reflect the real world and it has three major illusions: that you must work for someone else, that learning should only be done in school, and that the world is not diverse. For the past four years, excluding summer, how I spend my time has been dictated largely by teachers. Monday through Friday for seven hours a day plus a few hours in the evening, I’ll be listening to whatever lecture has been planned out and completing whatever homework has been assigned. Although I often find these things valuable, sometimes I know for fact that I am just wasting my time, like when I had to very neatly color a biology diagram, which in the end, was still not neat enough for the teacher.
School Year Round Why would anyone want to go to school a year-round? (Rhetorical Question) School should be a year-round because then students will not forget their learning, be more focused on their education and it will be easier to earn their credits in a shorter period of time. Firstly, A school year-round should be offered each year so students will not forget the learning. Many students that come back from their summer break most likely struggle on what they have learned, for instance, everyone ignores most of the subjects and methods that everyone discovered last year. Having a year-round school can allow students continually practice and build up their skills that will benefit them in the future.
Even though I lived far from my high school my parents took me to practice and back home every day. It showed me that they care about my grades and that I must keep my promise to them. Carol Dweck’s article “The Mindset.” Was about two type of mindsets one being a fixed mindset and the other being a growth mindset. The one that I believe to be more efficient was the growth mindset. This mindset means that one can always grow and improve.
I would enjoy playing Mexican board games with them and then also help them with their English. In their schools they learn English, but since it is the hardest language to learn, I could provide them with some one-on-one practice. In my last few days I would enjoy going to the outside market and meeting all of the locals. Anything my aunt and uncle would need or want, I would make sure to get them, because they don’t like spending money on themselves. My family is so humble and they are very appreciative of what they have; this inspires me and adds a lot of positivity into my
One of these times that I have had conflict with two values is when I get homework. I value education and a great education comes from your work in school. This has conflicted with my values because I love sports and you can not miss the games otherwise you feel like you have let down your team. This has conflicted in the past when I have a sport almost directly after school but I also have homework due the next day or later that night. Due to this I had to choose between sports or homework at times unless I had time to do it during school.
It not only allows for you to reflect on yourself within a certain timeframe or period, but the ability to reflect amongst yourself continually. The continuum of reflection is a access tool that allows us to concurrently recognize the manner in which we as educators presently reflect and most importantly, guide us to deliver the modified, distinguished support that we all need to grow as educators. Reflecting on my daily log will allow me to do such things. When I initially started the daily log, I was cautious about what to put and how to put it. I started my daily log by saying things such as “As I reflect on my profession today, I realized that I have no control over other actions of others.
Sometimes I relate information to cartoons, movies or even songs, whenever I need to remember, it only takes me a second repeating the script or the lyrics. Organize every home work and essay to write it on time is one of the advantages I am more proud of. I can easily find in my folder class notes, mind maps, and reminders of homework to deliver next week. At any time, dedication is a detail that must not lack in any of my tasks; since I start an essay or a summary, my time to do it will be separated to only centred all my opinions and ideas in it. My family taught me “If you are going to do something, does not matter what is it, you need to take care of it like a plant”.
