Since earning my diploma at West Genesee High School, I continued my education journey to Onondaga Community College. Here I had some ups and downs like any other student their first semester at a new school. Trying to adjust from high school classes to college class. During my first semester I struggled with Calculus, I tried college hour with my professor, and the tutoring center that is offered on campus. I ending up not doing very well in the class, and took it the next semester.
Holly Hassel and Jessica Lourey are English professors at their respective universities. In the second paragraph of the essay they posed a question that shapes this essay: “How do we teach our students to be accountable for their educational choices and performances? To answer their hypothesis, they took a survey of one thousand and ninety-five students total. The surveyed included questions about the meaning of each letter grade, perceptions of teacher/ student relationships and how many hours should be spent studying per three credit hour class. Ninety-three percent of students rated themselves responsible, thirty-nine percent of students had missed three or more days of class at the tenth week of the semester.
Where Did My Summer Go? Imagine this summer, instead of going to the beach, you went to your school. You won’t be able to go on the vacation your family has been planning for months, or go see your grandparents who live far away. This is what happens when schools switch to a year-round calendar. Schools shouldn’t adopt a year-long calendar because the numerous breaks will disrupt student’s learning and planning family trips during the summer time will become a challenge.
In my mother’s sophomore year in college at Laurence Tech, she had a professor show up for class an hour late. The professor had not realized the time change, and wasted her students’ time. Today, the Department of Transportation (DOT) oversees all the time changes (Source A), including the DST change staring in March and ending in
When I enrolled in college, my student advisor went over my degree plan, and made recommendations on what courses I would need in the pursuit of my degree. Thinking to myself, that I had not been in a school environment since 1991, I had my fears and didn’t know how I would conform inside a classroom with younger students who was straight out of high school or no more than five years removed. The student advisor recommended that I begin my degree with WRTG 101, and that I take this course online. Online courses appeared to be the path to take, because you can learn at your own pace without holding other students up and looking dumb while doing it. Taking WRTG 101 in an online format proved not to be the best solution, because I have always been a face to face, teacher present type of learner, and I am not a computer savvy individual.
What else could I do? I should have seen it, shouldn’t have listened, shouldn 't have believed her. I shouldn 't have left. The summer passed, three long months, and we didn 't talk once. She had a family vacation, then I had a summer camp, then she went to study abroad, and we didn 't get a chance to see each other until I left for New Hampshire and was gone.
On July 29, 2015, myself, my husband and the interpreter Wilma; we went to a meeting with a specialist named Wendy. It was mentioned in the meeting that Vinny is more organized, the school is well organized, also, she went in the school for two days to observe Vinny, she said that she like it, and she said that Vinny is progressing, I asked in what is progressing, because I don’t see nothing new, and she told me to wait until her report is done. I spoke about Vinny goals, the school set the goals very low and of course he will do it because he does it already in the house every day , for example : wash his hands, brush his teeth….In behavior ,social, hygiene, independence, also communicating using the IPad, and he learned how to handle his
In my opinion, colleges should teach the freedom of speech to their students instead of canceling the speech events. This past Wednesday, "UC-Berkeley announced it had canceled an event with Ann Coulter scheduled for next week, citing recent violent clashes downtown"
The year of the test, we had to take our normal Math and English class while an addition HASP prep Math and English so half of my classes where bases around this one test. Not only did it put stress on student it also pressure the teacher because if any student was to fail it would put the teacher in the line of question why the student wasn’t able to pass. Now think about standardized testing in a work environment. Picture it you come in to work every day on time do all the project your manger assign you. You’re the ideal employee and after three year they make you take a one test and you don’t pass the test by a few point.
