Education and language come in many different ways some of us have the opportunity to sit in a class and take notes, while those who are having difficulty being able to receive the same education are struggling. However in the case of Malcolm X and Christine Marin they were able to fight off those obstacles and knew that life had a
Teachers, trying to relate to those same students, need merely accept the technology as an improvement of this day in age. Tim Wilson, an employee in technology integration, understands this concept (Source B). When teachers and students are able to relate to one another, it makes learning easier. Internet forums for discussion, blogs in which to write, and computer based quizzes/tests are all ways that teachers can lessen the gap between themselves and their students. Some argue that this new technology promotes short attention spans and lack of appreciation for the historical arts (Source E).
Overall this book is a great read for anyone willing to learn how to exchange more positive interactions in their life. Some strengths of the read are that it helps give an insight on someone 's personal actions and how they might affect others. Also, the book comes with a complete guide on how to apply what was said directly to the workplace. One weakness of the book was that it was cheesy and felt as if it dragged on at times. Even though it was helpful and informative, a lot of concepts and ideas were repeated constantly.
It may be that it is in small and thoughtful gestures that we can change ingrained, thoughtless prejudice. In fact, after intervening in some teasing and being told, quite rightly, to mind my own business by both victims of my classmates’ careless fun, I hit upon a wonderful plan suitable to my character. I hope I am not building it up as something equal to Martin Luther King Jr. joining of character to thoughtfulness in its accomplishments, because in the end it was only a class presentation. Frankly, public speaking is my greatest fear, but this time it was from my heart and went beautifully. The theme was my friendship with these people of other faiths, and how much I learned about my own religion from them.
Which involved them asking for help after my presentation, so that really was the only success. So I guess I can say that having and planning out these events did not work out for me very well. What worked for me this semester was the in class discussions because I was able to interact with the opinions and I was able to share my opinions. These discussions also made me feel that I was apart of the class and not just an empty voice in the front of the class.
Exercise 1.1 was the most helpful to me. Starting the exercise with "From time to time I 'll hear a student say, "I 'm just not interested in anything enough to write a paper about it""(Ballenger, 25), was enough to get me motivated to find a good topic. I knew of a few things I wanted to write about, but after this exercise, I picked one I hadn 't even thought about. This helped me see all of the topics I could write about, and narrow it down to one that interested me the
So he uses his scientific research about the things he wants to have. Although he is a very good scientist and philosopher but he does not like his wife Georgiana the way she is. Author’s writing way of telling about Georgiana was very good, but he must have given something about her character as well. I think the way he explains the spot on Georgiana was the best way to attract the readers because the reader gets some imagination in his mind. The birthmark seems good to many people but not for his husband.
If I had seeked guidance from you as a teacher, I could’ve brought my grade up to an A--but more importantly, could have become more flexible as a writer. When I continue making the same mistakes over and over again, it can be easy to stay the same when help is not reached. Because of this, I have made it my goal to become more self-aware as a student in the future, so something like this does not happen again. As for the place that I am at now in terms of self-awareness, I feel that my writing will be greatly
It drastically decreased my grade point average since I had enrolled in this course with other difficult courses in my schedule; however, I did end up learning a lot from this experience. It taught me to be very aware of what I choose for my courses as a senior in high school and possibly as a freshman at Purdue. This experience also taught me, even though it is a human instinct, not to compare my intelligence to other people, regardless of what grade they are in, what grades they have, or how many more AP courses they are taking. I have also learned to make my own decisions instead of letting others make them for me because if I let others control what I do, then I will risk missing out on following my own unique path and expressing my individuality. Classes are different for everybody since every person has strengths and weaknesses, and everyone is intelligent in a unique way.
Though we have outspoken students, we cannot forget about those who are shy and introverts. Because we now have access to email, discussion boards, and chat, this sort of eases one’s mind because no one is watching them as they speak. This also serves as motivation for students as they will become more comfortable in themselves. If one had to name disadvantages of technology, one would probably vent that technology has indeed made our students lazy and dependent. In my days of substituting, it was clear that most students couldn’t answer many math questions without having a cell phone or computer in front of them.
Next year at Embry-Riddle I plan start studying Cyber Intelligence and Security. Ever since middle school I knew I had a developing interest in the field of computer science and spent most of my time building the skills to excel in my classes. One of the first projects I got to use the computer on was a video for the Oregon Trail. I decided that it would be best to design an advertisement to showcase the facts in a new and creative way. When my group turned the project in, and it was shown to the class my teacher rewrote the assignment according to what we did and used it as an example of great work when recruiting new people.
During school it might be boring to do work but at the end we all learn new things. Also, many of us get lectured from our parents about a bad grade or a poor decision, but after middle school or high school the advice pays off to know about. Even though, lots of people know what they did and might be honest with the choice they made and that will help them with avoiding the roadblocks of knowing they were lying to the parent. To avoid the roadblocks is to do the right thing and make the better choice.
As a student I have many Weaknesses however I also have strengths which can help me overcome my weaknesses. One of my weaknesses is time management I tend to waste time watching my favorite Tv shows or spend time on social media. Another weakness I have is I tend to loose focus and get bored. those are some weaknesses I have which make me a bad student. In order to overcome those weaknesses I have started being more organized than I ever was, I use things like calendars and planners to mark important dates so I wont forget.
The class really enjoyed and understood the lesson, and they really seemed to like our class activity. The main complaint about our presentation that I saw was that my group did not have many examples of allusions between the two stories. These students are not really wrong, other groups have had more examples than we have. However, Noah’s Ark was a very short story and only a few of its points related directly to The Grapes of Wrath. If we mentioned anything else, it would have been a stretch.
