When you run for Dairy Princess, you need to give a speech and I was really nervous because this was the first time I would be giving a speech. If I joined earlier, I would have more practice writing and giving speeches. Likewise, I would have been able to meet more people and get to know them. I have met many people the past two years, including the president of the college I want to go to. I enjoy meeting new people and talking to them.
One reason I think this is because she is spending so much time with Ky. She is with him everyday at hiking class and he is teaching her to write in cursive so they are growing closer. I think that Cassia has feelings for Ky that are stronger than her feelings for Xander. Another reason I think this is because Cassia found out it wasn’t a mistake that she saw Ky’s face on her microcard. When she was talking with Ky he said that the officials accidently gave him a match even though he wasn’t supposed to have one. “Then they showed me a picture.
Not So Fast” Andrea Lunsford researched students’ writing for 30-plus years to see what effect new technology has on how students learn. Lunsford discovered that students are actually improving their own writing skills with the help of mass media. Not only does it allow students more access to educational resources and information, but it also encourages students to do more creative thinking and writing outside of class which Lunsford refers to in her article as “life writing.” In her research she recalls the account of a student who sent a friend a text message which was completely informal and would be considered unprofessional by most piers. However, the same student also sent a very formal and professional report to her faculty adviser later on. The reason Lunsford includes this account of events is because it proves that while mass media might seem like its dumbing down the younger generation it is actually teaching them different kinds of writing and when to use different contexts.
People became more understanding of one another’s culture. More books of a secular nature were printed and scientists working on the same problem in different parts of Europe especially benefited, since they could print the results of their work and share it accurately with a large number of other scientists. By the 1600 's, this process would lead to the Scientific Revolution of the Enlightenment, which would radically alter how Europeans viewed the world and universe. While the printing press was a highly positive invention, it created so negativity. It took book copying out of the hands of the Church and made it much harder for the Church to control or censor what was being written.
As I end my sophomore year at Old Dominion University I think about all that I have accomplished in the past two years. I think about traveling to Peru and volunteering at an Hogar and Hospital as a Freshmen, Becoming Co-President of the Women’s ministry for ODU’s Catholic Campus Ministry, and to working hard and receiving good grades in all my classes. Not only do I think about all the work that I have done so far but I also think about my family and all the sacrifices they have made for me. I think about my parents waking up early every day to go to work just so we could have food on the table and a roof over our heads. I think about all they had to sacrifice when they fled from their country just so my siblings and I could grow up with more opportunities, and accomplish any goals we set ourselves without having to worry about whether or not tomorrow would come.
Being a new resident of the United States and an English learner, I try to speak as good as possible and I really think that people can’t tell that I am not a native English speaker. For some reasons, while growing up I always loved the United States and would support them in sports and different competitions and then I started learning English by myself because I didn’t study English till Middle School and finally I made it here this July. Therefore, never stop believing on what you are capable of doing, as here I am writing a formal paper talking about
and a dozen others like them were first class, good healthy stories, interesting in the first place, and in the next place teaching decency, good conduct, leadership, and responsibility. ” He also read books of contemporary fiction, poetry, ancient philosophy, military histories, and natural history studies. At an early age, reading these magnificent books, combined with his father’s unique example, helped Theodore form ideas and opinions that would remain with him throughout his life. Some parents, including Theodore’s mother, worried about their children, since they spent all there time reading. However, Theodore’s father encouraged Theodore to learn and educate himself in many different ways.
The old immigrants wanted to become Americans, they would get off the ships and were so happy to be here. They wanted to assimilate into this country as quickly as they could. Later, they learned English sometimes by going to night school after a long hard day at work. They kept some of their old ways but they were eager to learn about their new homeland. To begin with, during 1830 to 1890 mostly came from Irish and Germans.
With every day I was taught a new thing and a new word which increased my vocabulary as much I listen as much I gained, and as much I take as much as my language improved. In addition, I started to speak with my kids in English at home so my son who is in the high school helped me a lot by fixing me my pronunciation. It became so easy for me to talk to the customer and convince him to buy the phone after not a long time we started to be stable and learned a lot about the new systems in my new country .starting over might be a big challenge, but it has a lot of advantages.I learned new skills, I believed in myself and my personality changed a lot. In the new world you are probably going to have to start over more than once. I decide to go back to school to complete the requirements for my certificate to get a better
One of the most positive things that I did with students this year was to take the Honors students to Lenape Elementary during Teen Read Week. Teen Read Week is an initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). Teen Read Week started in 1998. In an effort to involve my students and inspire elementary students to read, my Honors English class, in cooperation with seven Lenape Elementary teachers and the building principal, we arranged a schedule,
From the 1st through the 15th of August of 2015 my family and I took a much needed vacation to the Hawaiian Islands. We went to both Oahu and Hawaii (which is often referred to as “The Big Island”). I remember I was really excited to go, who wouldn’t be? However, I was not excited to fly the better half of a day to make it to my awaiting tropical oasis. I had to get up around 4:30 in the morning to make it to my flight to San Francisco, California, where I had a five hour layover to my connecting flight to Kona, Hawaii.
One thing that stood out to me during the pillar dinner is how Dr. Choi was going to each intern and writing what we did next to a picture of us in order to include us in his daily prayer. The way that he was so ready and willing to include us in his personal prayer time really took me off guard. It was very refreshing to see someone act in this manner. I hope to one day be so active in my prayer life as to take others off guard in how ready I am to take the responsibility of praying for them in my personal prayer time. In order to increase my prayer life to a point where I can genuinely pray for others in such a manner as to take them off guard I must continually pursue a personal and passionate walk with God.
One thing that I stood out to me this week “Ready to write” in the webinkiar was very interested because I wasn’t know that those skills were so important to writing skills and academic success in the later years and they talked about how many percent children are pretending hand motor skills at the school life. My own experience regarding this topic, I don’t have any experience with the another classmate , but I am using the same method with daycare teachers.It is really helpful my child to support the motor skills to connect the dots with letters so he can understand that how to support to his finger. I feel very interested about what I read handwriting because I wasn 't know that crayons is more useful than pencils and I learned that
I look back at all the different forms I’ll be writing and how much advancement I’ve have come too. The way I was writing before and after has really upgraded. I would see my work before and after and now am really shocked to see how much I’ve changed. Starting from the very first days in the class doing pre-writing journals, then moving to bigger assignments like doing different essays like the Memoir and analyzing Rhetorical Analysis were a drastic change. Learning certain chapters and lessons my fellow classmates taught us really helped, for example learning
