Out of the various ways to represent Georgia Southern University, becoming an Honors Ambassador has been one of the most interesting opportunities I 've heard of since my start as a student. Not only would it fulfill my experiential learning requirement, but it would help by building onto my essential communication and public speaking skills which are a necessity to succeed in today 's society. This opportunity also opens up a variety of work and volunteer experiences which could connect me with other Honors students and staff. Also, before attending Georgia Southern, I was clueless of the realities I was about to face as an incoming freshman. I would love to share my experience with others to help ease their transition into college life.
I want to be a part of the Cougar Counseling Team because I think I would be a valuable asset to the team. I want to help spread positivity and help others through their college experience to make their time at College of Charleston enjoyable. I like to think I am a positive role model who can encourage and support others who seek out help. I have always been the friend that others seem to come to when they need someone to express their feelings. When my friend recommended that I should be a part of the team, I did research on what the team did in the college community and instantly wanted to be a part of this ground-breaking team.
Grouping can have far-reaching effects on students learning and thus careful decisions should be made. More than just, flexibility should be allowed in ability grouping so that the need of different students could be catered. For example, it is suggested that the high-achieving and low-achieving homogeneous groups can interact occasionally so that students are able to learn from each other and acquire non-academic skills. In this way, a more positive image of ability grouping and education can be created in
The students would write in each open area an important family value, such as love, support, thoughtfulness, and honesty. I would then have the students discuss in small groups what values they notice that were similar. Applying Firebird to my classroom, I would use the idea of mentors of role models. I would partner with high school seniors to come in and talk one-on-one to my students. This would allow my students to interview the senior of what made them successful in the areas of academics, personal life, and hobbies.
The films related to the issues of sexual orientation in psychology. The film relates to that section of class because of the many diverse set of ideas of these topics we saw.

I Want To Be a Web Leader because I love kids, and want to make the 5th graders confidence and less nervous for middle school. Some of my friends sisters and brothers, are going into 5th grade and are nervous. I love serving the community, and I babysit a lot! I know when i was in 5th grade the web leaders were very helpful, and they were my friends. I know when they would walk down the hall they would always stop and help me, and i want to help the new 5th graders too.
Teachers and fellow students will also provide help for students with disabilities; in this way, students with learning disabilities will be motivated to study as they feel that they are a part of a group instead of being isolated in special places. Thus, they will achieve higher grades. Moreover, they will be greatly engaged in the society as they are building bridges with their peers from several backgrounds. On the long run, teachers, parents, and the society as a whole would develop. Students with learning disabilities should be included in the “normal” classroom because it improves their academic performance, social behavior, and communication language.
Final Field Reflection: BYC Program Through my experience as a volunteer at Toro Middle School, it has taught me what it is like to look at a group of people in a sociological lens. To further expand my understanding of this sociological concept, I looked at my ascribed features being a 17 years old, light skinned, Asian (Vietnamese), and female in a diverse culture. The social location I had decided to volunteer was Toro Middle School. The experience has brought me laughters and great memories because of the bond I grew between some students. Besides that, because I am a Vietnamese female, this affected to how I adapted into this new environment, my gender helped me connect with a certain student, and evaluations of my reactions under certain circumstances at Toro Middle School.
One way that a teacher can ensure that the cultural capital of all students is recognised, understood, and valued is by fostering a strong home-school connection with the families of all students (Ewing, 2013. p.98). By forming authentic relationships with students and their families, a teacher can ensure that they are "actively engaged in knowledge and ideas that they see as related to their own
There is great variation in accountability systems. In some, information on student achievement is published in league tables, and sanctions, including monetary rewards, are attached to performance for schools and teachers. The use of monetary rewards, however, has proved controversial, and usually has not lasted very long. Furthermore, rewarding successful schools at the expense of increasing resources to schools that are failing would not contribute to overall school improvement. Non-monetary rewards (working in an environment conducive to learning, seeing positive results in student learning, or responding to parent pressure) can be motivating.

I think that two of the most important benefits of being an APTA member as a student are the student study resources and the ‘getting involved’ information. I think that all the options in the study resources tab would be an invaluable tool to use in researching different topics and scenarios for future classes and clinical rounds. It is nice to know that I can go to a reliable source to search for answers on topics I need more clarification on. The other neat benefit is the special student interest groups in the ‘getting involved’ tab; this sounds like a great way for students to further themselves as future physical therapists. I think it would be quite profitable to be a part of one; it sounds like a great way to communicate and work with other students from Texas in a smaller, more focused setting.
At my school, I am a co-leader of Sankofa, my school’s Black Awareness Club. We educate the student body on racial issues and have discussions about what it means to be black in our society. Throughout high school, I have helped this club grow from a few students to a flourishing space where students and teachers gather to better themselves and our school. After every event I feel progress being made. From the transformed way the members in my club interact in their community to the increasing number of curious new members, this club are advancing the presence of black students in my school.
My role would be to bring new ideas and perspectives that will benefit the community as a whole. Throughout high school, I have gained skills in organizing events to address issues that were affecting the students. As ASB vice president, I took the time to listen to the ideas of members who represented several groups on campus. In our meetings, the topic of Black History month came up. Considering that our community was predominantly African American and Hispanic, I knew the importance of celebrating both cultures.
