Every student is unique and learns better from different techniques. Some students are visual learners and others are verbal learners. In most cases students prefer certain subject fields over others. For instance, I love learning about math and science but I don’t really care for social studies. Jonathan Fetter-Vorm’s graphic novel Trinity appeals to many different types of students.
In order to view situations, one has to find different approaches by stepping outside their boundaries. One strategies I use is proofreading and taking notes because it helps me to enhance my critical writing and reading skills. When proofreading, I always read the material twice, allowing my learning patterns to help guide me. By learning the behavior of metacognitive, I have learned to self-regulate my learning patterns, in order to overcome my challenges and understanding my behavior and thoughts by regulating my learning process. Using a word wall or checklist, is also a strategy that will help me to
We build ourselves out of that story.”― Patrick Rothfuss. There is power in words, power in the way they can bring new ideas and opinions to the people who perceive them. The people who understand this the most, are the people who use them to weave stories for their audience. It stands to reason that these practitioners might draw from each other, as a student who cannot help but to glance over at another student's work with the purpose of improvement. In the classroom this is known (in certain situations) as cheating or sometimes just collaboration, but in works of literature it is known as copyright infringement
• How have you grown in self-awareness through this course? This course helped me to develop and recognize my personal values and attitudes insightfully. I kept learning and thinking more about myself, in terms of my personality, strengths, weaknesses, beliefs, and likes and dislikes through the skill of self-awareness. Coming from an Asian cultural background, I learned that my thoughts, values, and attitudes were different from people who were born and raised in the United States. The course has helped me to become more aware of myself in terms of how my cultural background influences my personal values, thoughts, and behaviors.
Discoveries and discovering can offer new understandings and renewed perceptions of ourselves, others and our world. Ladies and gentlemen of the HSC panel, thank you for providing this opportunity for me to speak to you on the concept of discovery, and share my thoughts on how this area of study can be explored through texts. The discovery process is a crucial way we can help people arrive at the truth and overcome confusions and uncertainties that have a negative impact on the quality of life. Michael Gow’s play Away and Les Murray’s poem “The Widower in the Country” are two texts that present personal experiences of conflict because of the difficulty of accepting reality, and discover the real problems and issues that they are either unaware of or simply choose to ignore. Both texts demonstrate the challenge of overcoming emotional obstacles, whether it is the death of a loved one or a dysfunctional relationship.
Drawing 100 is a class in which students are not only able to learn basic drawing techniques for the creation of a three-dimensional illusion of form and space in a two-dimensional composition, but also helps students from different majors adopt these techniques for their benefit to improve their work in their field of interest. In my case, I have noticed that Drawing 100: Form and Space has been very helpful to shape my view what type of artist I want to be in the area of Film and Television. My major is not only about filming a story, editing and playing it on a screen; it is about visualizing how you want to put words or images into movement to express something and transmit emotions to an audience. To be able to do this successfully, a filmmaker needs to consider the actors and the script, but also the setting, the background, lighting, among others. In the Drawing 100 class we learned many aspects such as gesture and contour drawings, cross-hatching, the chiaroscuro technique to add value and two and three-point
What is the difference between a writer writing a novel and an artist creating a work of art? They are different forms of media, but they both strive for the same goal- to inform or entertain an audience. Both are imperfect medium created for it’s audience to submerge themselves within it and along the way they establish an emotional connection with different aspects of the work. The graphic novel adaptation of Paul Auster’s City of Glass, by Paul Karasik and David Mazzucchelli, does a great job captivating the possibility of impossibly that is embodied in the novel, while creating simple images that will help better understand the complexity of the work. While creating the graphic novel, Karasik and Mazzucchelli chose to keep it in black
I chose this class because I want to gain an in-depth understanding as to what really drives the anti-immigration sentiment and why people view immigration as the source of conflicts. I want to be educated about this issue as well as exposing myself to different sides of the story in order to avoid misconception and misinterpretation. Rather than forming an opinion and choose what is right and wrong, I want to be able to analyze and understand both sides of the argument. In addition, I have always been interested in learning about immigration. I also spent a lot of time tutoring other immigrants’ children in in West Seattle.
Deploying this sensory language has further enabled me to “show” my audience what I intend to communicate to them. It has also allowed me to spark more emotions in my readers to make my writing more relatable to them. I understood that to make my writing stand out to readers; I must find creative and new ways to describe detail to show my readers subtly, what I want them to visualize; instead of overusing basic descriptions. Through this technique, my descriptions in my work became one of my major assets as a writer. Instead of using empty adjectives which represent emotions such as the word "sadness," I learned to describe feelings through the use of dialogues and action in my storyline to spark stronger reactions in readers.
Secondly, I grew to love helping others in their writing through the use of peer editing. In the end, there were things I learned through this class that I can apply to who I am as a writer, how I have developed as a reader, and what I have learned as a critical thinker. As a writer, I have learned that I need to condense my words and be able to effectively communicate what I am saying and to be able to write in various different styles using one particular method and approach. In my particular case, writing is a gradual process, and I look forward to continuing to grow in composing assignments more effectively. I have observed that I can write an effective paper but it may take me longer to fully
