In the poem, “Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout Would Not Take the Garbage Out” by Shel Silverstein, the theme, don’t procrastinate, connects to my life. For example, when I was in fifth grade, I had to complete Math worksheets as a morning warm up. If I didn’t finish those worksheets, I would have to keep it in my folder to hand in later. Same thing goes for Reading and Social Studies homework. Instead of doing my work like I was supposed to do, I completely slacked off on it.
For years I put all this behind me, I pushed cps out of my mind and caseworkers and social workers did not even exist in my world, that is until college. As I was searching through the list of majors offered at a nearby university I happened upon the “Social work” tab, I almost kept scrolling and avoided it completely, but I’m glad I did not. In my life I had always seen social work strictly as cps, more specifically the removal of children in cps. I was ignorant and did not realize the entire spectrum that social work is on and the vital role they play in communities, the more I begin studying and learning about the field the more I fell in love with it. I feel that my experiences will both help and hinder me, in a sense I have a deep understanding of what many people whom will need a social worker are going through, but because of this I will also have a harder time ensuring I do not over relate than some of my fellow classmates will.
I become close with some of them influencing me to write about more about myself, religion, and race. We had to turn in a free write for my 8th grade class each friday but I never did them. Like I said writing was hard for me. I think the reason being that I was able to read well so I didn 't have much to write about other than the stuff I heard. Even then, If I did write was wasn 't going to be able to read it.
Procastination is becoming a bigger issue in the education system. To staying up till midnight or till the next day catching up on homework or studying for quizzez, exams, finals! Malcolm X faced the obstacles of trying to learn how to read. He had a lot of time on his hands so he wanted to and decided to teach himself how to read. Although, Malcolm didn't have the ablity to read , he didnt allow the fact he never had the opportuinty to expand his vocalbury to .
During my first class I had to write a paper in APA format, I was very stressed since I was not use to this format. It took many different tries and help from the writing center to be able to have a proper APA paper. Since that class I have learned that it does not have to be stressful as long as you have an idea of what APA is and you use the resources like the APA manual for references. Along with learning APA style I have been able to expand on my critical thinking abilities. When I read an academic article I know what parts to look at to understand what the authors are studying and wither they found a significant difference or not.
it is better to ask for help then let stress affect me and my performance in classes. and counseling does really help because I was talking to someone new and they do not know anything about me and talking to a stranger did help me figure out what was wrong with me because I have to tell everything from the beginning and with new different opinion I was able to get over my stress. The eighth thing I learned is to always keep with me a small calendar to write everything down for example, and appointment, test date, assignment due date, etc. That way I would be more organized and get everything down by it due date. and that having only cell phone to write important appointment is not enough.
I have always enjoyed reading and writing, however, writing, never came so naturally for me. It has been ten years since my last English, or writing class. The extent of my writing today is limited to emails between co-workers, or simply texting on my cellphone. In the military you are trained to get straight to the point. Stop and think before you speak, and when it comes to writing, whether memos or emails, the same applies but the goal is to get to the point to obtain a quick straight forward response.
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. I began WRTG 101 this semester with minimal writing skills, and after numerous writing assignments and exercises I believe that I am now on my way to
As well as the fact that I’m horrible at all my english classes, it might be a good idea to get those improved. I watch a lot of Youtube on my free time because when I get done with all my homework and chores around the house I chill.I don’t have many plans after school but I’ll take it one day at a time. Those are my plans for academic success. One of my academic plans is to pass all my classes with a C average. The reason I want a C is because my mom never wants an F or a low D in my grade book.
2. From the middle high school, I was only the person staying farthest from school. However, I never took any days off in my school life, even when I got sick. My friends often say that if anyone wants our class learned in any year, just ask Thanh. 3.
Many students of all ages have issues with writing, the only way to get better at writing is to have experience. I never paid much attention to my writing skills while in high school, I simply did not care about writing. This year as a freshman in college, I have struggled with writing this semester in GSW 1100. Even though I have not been passing papers, I understand that writing in college is extremely important to learn and develop. This is important because most courses in college have writing in them.
Xander did nothing in class and told the substitute and Mr. Loftis that he did not have his device. He spent a lot of the period listening to music. Mr. Loftis asked him once again about the device and he discovered the device was in his Xander 's backpack. He continued listening to music instead of working. Xander had a great start to his time at HHS, but over the last few weeks he has done very little in class, been very disruptive, and has to be reminded most days on what the expectations are at the beginning of class (seated with something to write with and something to write on).
The high school students are taking college courses, and LaPetria 's only responsibility to the high school is to teach their students. The impetus for this email is a recent conversation that I had with Ms. Rhoe where she expressed to me that in addition to the six courses that I assigned her to, she is also teaching an Academic Advisory class for SECHS which meets Monday through Thursday for 30 minutes each session. That amounts to 2.0 hours of uncompensated instruction per week. Evidently all of the high school 's "regular" teachers are charged with this duty. I told her that again, she was hired by STCC not SECHS, and should not be required to perform any additional duties for the high school especially without compensation.
Furthermore, the college work load was completely different from what I expected. One day we would be working on differential equation, and then the next class we would be on a completely different topic like synthetic division. Professor Morocho said, “I know this is a lot of matter, and this is a lot of material. But I know you can handle it, and if you need help I am always available 11 to12.” I was barely grasping the concepts of the current topic, and we were already moving on to the next topic. I frequently visited professor Morocho’s office for help, but it did not seem to mater.
I always try to pay critical attention to follow and understand what is been thought in class. Though, I could not speak or read in class, but I was performing well in the written exercises and examinations. After the first semester, then I started picking up with speech and asset but was not that much. I started taking the science class from the second semester. Some of the topics were okay to go with and some were hard and difficult.
