One skill that comes with being a student athlete is that student athletes are able to multitask better than other students. “Student-athletes who choose to compete in two sports at the same time have to quickly learn and develop countless life skills, including time management, multi-tasking and discipline, and they sometimes need academic and emotional help.” (Stankovich). Student athletes have to balance the time they spend at school, sports, and with family. With only twenty four hours in a day this can be very hard for them, but they are still able to make it through thanks to some of the many other skills they have acquired. One of which is time management, which plays a huge role in school life.
disciplines might bridge differences to enable curricular improvement. For your primary post, select any one theory, conceptualization, or research study and briefly describe it. How might you make a connection between what you selected and how it could be used for curricular improvement? Beth can you make this understandable and remember the question I have to answer is above ( in read) I believe that a good example of how Hollands theory works is with student’s athletes. By having a group of faculty and mentors working together to provide the tools and all the necessary help for these students to succeed while they are traveling is a testament of a proactive curriculum set up.
Competing in a sport allows players to learn teamwork and how to work with others in a positive way. Improving social skills as well the manner in which one works with others are valuable lessons that can learned from simply joining a sports team. Team building activities will not only help people when playing sports, but also help them in the future work force. Discipline is another beneficial outcome to playing a sport. If teens and children are forced to respect a coach and his methods on the field, they will learn to respect and intake request from any employers they come across in their lives.
Being able to juggle both school and a sport is a lot of pressure and takes a lot of hard work and dedication. For all the hard work and dedication, a college athlete put in they should be reward for that. College athletes deserve to get paid
Outliers, written by Malcolm Gladwell, is an informational book regarding the intricacies of success and how it comes to fruition in individuals. Outliers has served to teach students the means of being successful and the importance of seizing opportunities as they come. Personally, Outliers has changed my views of success in numerous ways. Before reading said book, I had always assumed people who were naturally talented or had specific privileges were the only ones who could get far. However, Gladwell’s writing has informed me that anyone, if they are prepared to work hard, can reach their goals.
As you venture through it you will soon realize these things and this is my way of telling you how to best go through it with the most ease. The most common thing that many people deal with in high school is the fact that they all want to fit in somewhere and want to fit in well.

I can contribute my hard work to the Honors College community. I think that I am hardworking and I love to work with others to help solve problems because two heads are always better than one. I would contribute my ideas to the lessons and help others when they need it. I love to be able to work with other people outside my comfort zone and be able to hear their ideas and combine ideas to come up with something that will benefit everyone in the community. I hoped that my contribution to the Honors College community would be beneficial to the ones that are in the same mindset as me.
This is why they look up to athletes, because they are all they have to look to (Steinberg). They look to them for guidance and want to follow in their footsteps. This is why athletes can be so beneficial to society, because they can be good examples to the younger generation. Many athletes may say that it is not their job to role models. It may not be their job; however, it is their responsibility to be a good role model.
I believe that TCU is a great fit for me because I am a student who believes in constantly improving myself and my skills. I am an actively involved student in my school community, and I love the fact that TCU offers such a wide variety of classes and organizations for students like me to take part in. I know that I personally thrive best among other students who not only push themselves, but encourage those around them to do so as well, and from meeting many TCU students, it is evident to me that TCU embodies that idea. After my time at TCU, I hope to discover a more independent, authentic version of myself. In high school, there is a great deal of pressure to be like everyone else, however I believe that TCU is a place where students can

Understanding the complex elements of an athlete’s motivation allows for an institution to 1) accommodate the greatest number of athletes’ motivational styles, 2) educate coaches on how to provide the most effective motivational climate, and 3) properly inform athletes so they are able to choose the best fit for him or her. This begs the question, however: When an athlete finally decides upon an institution, will a RPI affect the athlete’s motivation orientation to
Countless colleges around the world train students to be more critical in their thinking. Successful college graduates must develop critical thinking to tackle some of the many demanding courses taught at universities.

As assessments scores are recorded, I will know whether the lessons are on the right level or whether I teach all the topics effectively.
