My writing and reading process generally varies depending on its purpose. For class assignments, I mostly do my work in an environment similar to my class room. For example, I would work at a desk and begin with reviewing the assignment or prompt several times before I begin. When it comes to writing, I would often place my prompt at the beginning of my paper and I begin a series of brainstorms with bullet points under. Throughout my working process, I often come back to the top to refer to my prompt and my original ideas to compare my work and review if I am following through with it. For reading, I generally read the piece fully through before I look at what I am assigned to do with the information. After I read it through, I go back and
To be honest I don’t really know where this essay is going to start or end up but here are some thoughts that I endured while reading this book. I read this book once in 7th grade which was apparently a much too early time to read it. I probably thought it looked impressive to adults or something by having that book with me. But I really didn’t understand what it was about until finishing it again in your class. This time I enjoyed it a lot more and felt embarrassingly more proud of myself for having read The Catcher In The Rye.
I was chosen as an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant for the Fall 2015 ZOOL 2403 Labs due to my performance in the previous semester’s lecture section and lab. I was selected from over 120 nominations to fill a limited 57 spots. As an undergraduate teaching assistant I was assigned a lab section that I went to each week and I assisted the Graduate Teaching assistant in teaching, identifying, explaining structures to the students. I was also expected to set up assessments and mini practicals for each lab, and help proctor the lab practical exams.
After completing the Jung Typology test I learned significant points that I agree and disagree. I was impressed with my result. Learning about communication style and learning style preferences will aid me as an adult learner.
College begins another chapter in every person 's life, not only to pursue a higher degree of education, but to also expand our knowledge and amplify an individual perspective in life. Philosophy is a course that would be fascinating to learn more about knowing the only similarity we all have in common is simply being human, but the way we think is unlike based on aspects such as race, culture, gender and many others. In order to elicit interest in others an open discussion should be presented to see how divided the class would be on one topic or thinking process supported by the individual 's point of view. The best way to make the most of this class would be to conduct an interviews with a variety of people to understand what ideas
By participating in Early College program, provided by the school, I had the opportunity to take college courses. I used the program as an advantage to explore careers and one of them was by taking the course, Fashion Merchandising. In this course we were able to show our creativity skills by creating our own designs, having makeovers, and crafting our own magazine. This inspired me to search for a career path that was related to this specific course and therefore decided to major in Marketing (Business). Majoring in marketing will not only allow me to use the skills that I have and have a close similar experience to the course that I took, but it will also allow me to use the skills in special events like providing information to my community,
One of the unique aspects of the Department of Child Development and Family Relations is that many of the department’s large core courses offer teaching assistant opportunities to undergraduate students. Teaching assistant opportunities are valuable for undergraduate students to decide whether to apply as a graduate teaching position, great addition to a resume, and for a letter of recommendation. From my teaching assistant experience, I was able to fully grasp the concepts of middle childhood development, form a new appreciation for professors and teaching assistants, and reflect on myself as a student. In addition, I had the opportunity to strengthen several essential skills such as organizational skills, leadership skills, and communication
I enjoyed creating an online resource collection for my teaching partner. I am driven by inquiry and helping others. During my observations and feedback session I took note of things that my teaching partner wanted resources of. I enjoyed creating a collection of effective strategies for Beth to utilize. A particular focus for our blog was the use of leveled text. This was particularly important to meet the diverse learners and their individual learning needs. I began my resource collection by adding graphic organizers that could be used to differentiate lessons to meet the needs of our English Language Learners. Henceforth, I then began to add differentiated and leveled text so Beth could easily access the text for her diverse learners. You
When it comes to the course concepts I have learned, I would like to demonstrate Free writing, Proofreading as well as the Discourse Community. At first, I am going to talk about Free writing. Free writing means when you are writing something, you should keep writing, never stop and try to write everything down whatever comes to your mind. When I free write, I just need to focus on my content and leave grammars, spelling and punctuation behind. It seems to me that it is really a good way to enrich my content and help me figure ideas out as much as I can. Generally, the reason why I can leave grammar, spelling and punctuation behind when I am writing is because it is only my first draft. After free writing, you can still edit your text
Based off of my personal experiences with this icebreaker activity, both the instructor and the class tends to learn a lot about each individual student as a person, specifically due to the questions asked. Additionally, compared to introducing oneself, this activity provides some comfort because introducing and sharing facts about someone else is less stressful than doing the same for yourself. Furthermore, the exit ticket activity allows for a fun way to get everyone in the class acquainted by having students recall a specific classmate and their fact, and helps ensure that students were paying attention. While I admit that this activity is not one of the most exciting icebreaker activities, it can be one of the most impactful simply due to the inconspicuous and intentional steps it takes to create a classroom community. Because of this, I plan on implementing this specific icebreaker activity in the future, with the hopes of creating the sense of classroom community and familiarity between my students and
I attended the Graduate Student Q&A discussion session last Thursday, where I learned about what it is like to be a graduate student. The speakers were Courtney Boise and Josh Zosky- both are working on their PhD program, especially in the fields of developmental and neuroscience, respectively. They discussed the graduate program as the session offered students the opportunity to ask questions they might have regarding graduate school. Josh 's research interest is in neuroimaging and use that to build devices for rehabilitation.
Over the past few months of learning and growing in knowledge within this unit, I have taken this time to ponder on how it has changed my perspectives and how this unit has developed me academically. Upon initiation of this unit, assumed that this unit was useless information that I already knew, simply placed in courses for those students who were not as proficient in online learning. As a daily user of online information and communication, I have been amazed at the amount of things that I thought I knew about these subjects, however I now see that I had really only skimmed the surface. On reflection of my time studying this unit, I feel that I have broadened my understanding of locating credible sources, how to gauge whether the information
This past two months have been rewarding, enlightening and challenging. Being my first time in taking an online class, it was really a huge adjustment for me. I was so used to the traditional setting where there is an instructor in front of the class, and the students discuss the topics in person. I thought I will not like the idea of sending an email for a question and discussing lessons through posts, but I did. I was able to say my ideas that honestly, I might have never said if I was face to face with someone.
I don’t remember my whole schedule but I do remember some of my classes I had math, biology, history, Spanish, English1, gym and some other that I can’t remember and all my classes I have to take it with them. This group of people were divided by to different nationality Puerto Ricco and Dominican republic so my first day the boys from the other country they were really nice with me until they star to give me rare looks: like I was something nasty or ugly and they start to say stupid jokes about where I’m from and I never say anything I felt humiliated and vulnerable of all this stuff had happen to me the same week I attended to the school. I decide to sit alone at the cafeteria, when five girls approached to my table and they set up a conversation
I am a visual learner, meaning I learn better seeing thing. Visual learner often see everything as a picture because it often help us get the point of the lesson and understand the concept of whatever I am working on. Visual learning is a style in which a learner utilizes graphs, charts, maps and diagrams. With being a visual learner I am going to let you know how seeing thing, and visualizing thing help easy my learning.
