Making sure there is minimal grammar errors is important, because it will make it easier for the readers to understand the essay, just like the sentence and thesis errors. When I would review my drafts for each essay, I started to look harder for these errors with each essay as the class progressed. I started to find more and more errors that I know I would not have found in the beginning of this class. There is an article that helped me learn to truly revise my essays, the title is, “Revision Strategies of Student Writers”, it is by Nancy Sommers. It is about different strategies students can use to revise their paper.
I believed that I would pass the second time too. Sometimes I make mistakes but never the same mistake again. I was schedule to retake the test in two days. The test was so nerve wrecking for me, that I did not remember the question I had gotten incorrect. I could not even figure out what areas I needed to really focus on.
I believe that, in my type of writing, I am more prone to incorrectly using punctuation, because of my tendency to type what I see, as if I was saying it. I believe it especially so because of my lack of knowledge in certain punctuation; such as semicolons & ampersands. (Not to mention parentheses). But, once again, thanks to this class I will no longer make small mistake in my writing like those in the previous sentences. Each lesson is available to me, should I forget, and I have many examples and tests to assist me in the future.
Of course, I can remember a few things from Chemistry, but nothing like I should be able to retain. I know that when I am just memorizing the material and not learning it or just getting through the class to get an A is not a good habit or ideal in any way, but I still do it. I now regret not focusing on learning the material, and I have been really trying in all of my classes following the Chemistry class to learn and retain the information given. I also think about how much money my parents and I have just thrown away, because I cannot remember the information that was taught.
From the studies, we can use A – B – C – D – E model from Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) to deal with the youths who having self – destructive behaviors such as getting into fights and choose to slip away instead of searching for help from counselor and peers. These youths are having irrational beliefs which mislead them so that they must be perfect all the time and if they fail to do so, they will suffering from negative emotions and self – blame. The strength of REBT is that it emphasis on a comprehensive and eclectic approach to treatment that includes cognitive, behavioral as well as emotive components. It is an approach which associate the feelings, thinking and behavior of their clients.
The research has not only reviewed the well-known concepts of academic plagiarism but also introduced new facts and forced to think of academic plagiarism in different light. A new thing learnt in this research is that plagiarism can occur intentionally and unintentionally. It may not be an intention to plagiarize but it will be marked as academic plagiarism if proper citations, quotations and references are not given. So understanding and learning how to cite and quote the references is significant. Most students do not realize the extent of the damage that plagiarism causes on their own intellectual growth.
Secondly it affects your health because you get less sleep. In the article, Is Lack of Sleep Bad for Health, they stated that we use sleep to work at our best and our attitude is affected too. Also they said that less sleep can cause disease. In my past experiences when I get more sleep I feel ready for the day and when I am ready for the day I work harder in everything I do including school. Finally, in the article, Homework Can Have Negative Effects Should Schools Ban it, they say that when there is a constant amount of homework and when there is two or more hours of homework that it is linked to sleep
This way, I will be calmer and not only it will reflect on my students, but also will give me the competence to react better in this situation. Although it is not easy, it works! I felt that I dealt much better with the situation and I was able to calm everyone down, which is amazing since it is not an easy
The resources provided really helped me make sense of my topic and help me understand how to do each aspect of the experiment step by step. Although I know my teacher is not responsible for anything science fair related, it would have been helpful if through the writing process she could show me exactly how she would want my reflection paper to be. Personally, I prefer to work alone on most projects because then I can make sure everything goes as planned exactly as I want it to. A con of working individually, however, is that when the experiment gets difficult there is no one I can rely on to help me problem solve, I had to figure everything out myself.
Do you think because I missed some of your lecture on chapter 4 I will be completely lost, or will studying the power points in conjunction with the chapter and learnsmart be enough? I had an issues accessing learnsmart at first, but have found it extremely beneficial in my test preparations. I wish the issue were resolved before the first test; it really gives me a lot of confidence in my absorption of the information. Sorry for the long-winded email. I realize this is a college course, which means lots of independent study and figuring things out on your own.
By resting immediately after learning, this allows for the consolidation of the memory traces, whereas the strenuous mental work of cramming just before an exam leaves the traces weak. Thus, Adderall is an insufficient study aid when students are cramming for exams because although the drug allows students to cram more information; the information is still not being consolidated. The brain regions involved in information retention are also important considerations. For instance, the hippocampus plays a critical role in the consolidation by converting immediate memories into long-term memories. The hypothetical process of reconsolidation is an important process to keep in mind when studying as it proposes a memory trace is revised and reconsolidated in the hippocampus.

I cannot imagine how I had gotten my feet to move, but I had found myself enthusiastically swinging my body around the room when hearing the instructor count: one, two,three and four repeatedly as each muscle throughout my body, swung around, to each beat being counted. I had waited for these exciting moments, where having fun and being myself suited each moment dancing. Now, upon learning how to salsa, there were various discoveries that I had discovered along the way - my new strengthens and weaknesses such as my ability to quickly adapt to a different style of music than what I am usually exposed to, my ability to balance myself while my partner spins me, my ability to expand my creativity while dancing and lastly my ability to be more confident with my body while I am dancing as salsa forces you to be more sensual while dancing. However, every strength has
