The age old question was posed by grandfather. “What do you plan on studying at school?” That question had always haunted me, mainly because the answer never seemed to impress anyone. I’ve always loved writing– it’s pretty much the only thing I’m passionate about. So to me, it only seemed logical to study creative writing.
I had doubted myself when I set this goal because high school was so difficult for me, not because I didn’t like school but because in high school I felt like an outsider and no one teacher ever took an interest in me, my education, or my future. In my yearbook I even have a signature from my high school human anatomy teacher and it reads: “David- Congrats! When I first met you, I questioned how you made it to 12th grade… Now I know behind the big mouth is a big brain &heart. Best of Luck,” Mr. W. That just tips off my high school time, on the outside, that seems like a very uplifting message.
I had to snap out this mindset because it was taking me nowhere, I knew school would be my only escape so that I never had to experience this pain again. My only weakness was my own self doubt holding me back, If I truly wanted change I had to focus on myself and not the mistakes my mother had made. It took me awhile to get over this part of my life and start focusing on my future , I knew I had to make up for messing up my first two years of high school which resulted in such a low GPA. Although my GPA now isn 't the highest it could have been, I have since then received three honor roll certificates for having a 3.0 GPA for 3 different semesters. Pushing through this obstacle has motivated me to push to be successful.
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.
Personal Goals Why are you pursuing a degree at ITT Technical Institute? The reason I am pursuing a degree at ITT is because I’ve tried the community college/university route and I just felt like it was a total waste of my time and money. The reasoning I feel the way is because I have to give two to four years of my time and money for teaching and not showing. I wanted a more hand on teaching along with the book work because at least in my opinion I believe that’s the best way of learning in the computer field.
" Education is not preparation for life;education is life itself." -John Dewey I have always felt integrated in my love for education. Discrimination never stole from what felt like an intellectual thirst I could not quench. Attending college had been a goal of mine since I was young, conceived from the curiosity of the world I could not touch with my hands.
Why Suspending Misbehaving Students Is a Bad Idea Teachers may be surprised to find out that suspending kids from school isn’t working anymore and we need a better solution for punishing the students. This is because many students would rather be home than having to come to school. Many schools in the past have used various different punishments for disobedient students but the main one has been suspending them from school and activities. This way of dealing with the students has worked for many years of teaching because the students back then knew that they were lucky to even be going to school. In this new generation, kids don’t care about school as much and would rather be home anyway.
like I want to be a forensic psychologist take 12 years of college to be a it and just have my dream job and not have to worry about money and just fix the wrong I've done to people. I've always want really good grades I hated that I slacked off my first two years of high school because honestly it didn't help me at all but my junior and senior year I really started to buckle down and get serious because I don't want life to be hard for me I want I mean I know there's always going to be bumps in life but I least wanted to at least try to have a smooth journey. like pretty soon I'm going to get a car I'm going to get an apartment I might even go to Florida and go to the technical school down there and they have a huge forensic department I have a lot of goals in my life right now I just need to start taking action for them. Like i said i have gone through alot in my life recently with more downs than ups, but no matter how hard it got i never wanted to give up.
Everyone has been handed homework. Most people have begrudgingly completed it under the assumption that it would help them practice and study -- an assumption that those hours of hard work spent after school would be useful; an assumption which is now being proved false. In fact, newly emerging evidence indicates that homework must be regulated because it actually has few proven academic benefits and can actually hurt the well-being of the students. Believe it or not, new studies indicate that homework has not shown any benefit for students academically. Many studies have been conducted on this subject, and most of the recent ones show no correlation between homework and academic success.
When I started Unity High School I thought that it was going to be boring school because my first choice was Skyline but my mom made me come to this school so I had to obey what my mom wants because she takes care of me and helps me with whatever I need help with so going to the school that she wanted me to go to was the least I could have done. I thought that high school was going to be difficult because the work that my brother would bring home when he was in high school looked really hard and I did not understand most of the work he needed to complete. But I realized that I need to be taught the material before I go on and do the work
Before this class, I perceived myself as a poor writer. When someone has never been taught the proper way to write a paper, you struggle through college SOC 300 (Dr. Stephen Adair) and hoped to get more out of SOC 478 (Dr. Fumilayo Showers) as you attend classes. I never thought about the process that it took to write any paper before these classes. However, these two professors have been very inspirational toward my writing.
Brendan Rieth ENC1101 Pagan 10/30/16 Hidden Intellectualism College, a new math assignment and paper assigned to you seemingly every night, but you’re a history major and have no need for learning the Pythagorean theory. This makes it easy to lose interest and fall behind in class. In his article, Graff cites works from many authors that correlate to his convincing idea of hidden intellectualism and looks deeply into the idea of finding and accepting someone’s “intellectualism”. While it is not a well-recognized idea, there is a lot of promise in the idea of hidden intellectualism, however, our society only focuses on the textbook and curriculum. Considering that some minds we consider genius today were not always seen as “intellectuals” maybe
