-Ladies and gentlemen, I am honored to introduce to you to my student Aladdin Elfares and to share with you a few insights into his life. Aladdin Elfares is a student majoring in business with a concentration in economics and he is enrolled in Coker Colleges Men’s soccer team in Hartsville, South Carolina. Aladdin is a junior at Coker after he started his college career in the fall of 2015. He is an international student, coming from Hallsberg, Sweden, to take his soccer career to here at Coker College. Aladdin made the decision to come to Coker after receiving scholarship offers from several other schools, but he felt that Coker was the right place for him because he rather is a big fish in a small school than a small fish in a big school.
I was raised in the Black Hills of South Dakota. I grew up with an awareness that Native Americans, or “Indians,” were a minority in my home town of Rapid City, South Dakota. But in school, my only real contact with the Lakota was in basketball tournaments like the Lakota National Invitational. My parents took me to the largest Pow Wow in Western South Dakota every year where we watched the beautiful grand entry dancers and listened to the awe-inspiring drummers and Lakota singers performing traditional music. Toward the end of my middle school years, my mom, a family physician, started taking me to the Pine Ridge Reservation once a summer to drive around the town, eat at Subway, which is one of the only restaurants in the expansive reservation, and then stop at the Wounded Knee Memorial.
My biggest goal in life or as you would say my life goal. Is to join the national guard and finish basic training in fort Benning’s down in Georgia. I have already signed up for the national guard with SSG Allen. After that I would like to be an 88M Transport Operator Truck Driver for the U.S National Guard. Which is a civilian job for the military while I finish out my high school career and then go to Germany to go to Steiger Missionary school for the full 3 months of school and then come back to the U.S and attend the world’s largest Christian college (Liberty University).
I have been teaching Brazilian Literature since I finished my Master’s. I started at a private high school planning strategies to overcome the students’ reluctance to read canonical novels. Some of the students were fascinated to quickly consume best-sellers from any other nationality, rather than to contemplate a book by a Brazilian or a Portuguese author written dozens of years ago. I realized in practice what I have discussed with my colleagues at disciplines on teaching theory: the role of the Literature teacher was beyond showing aesthetics or cultural values or relationships between literature and power in the society. As a teacher of Literature in Portuguese, I should teach language as well, from Camões to Guimarães Rosa, since the students (as well as the teacher) must “trespass” language borders, and so I should strategically arrange the readings in the syllabus.
Another example would be cultural dances, which I learned in Spanish club. These examples are few things I do after-school that help me with my education and housework. From doing all of this I got knowledge about how to do things. California Music Studio wrote that 79% of students participate in after-school activities. If the principal were to decide if they should have all students participate in
The outcomes of the research will be intended to increase understanding about bilingualism and used as an aid to parents to choose suitable school for the children and to students to decide which university to go to study. The research includes several different methods. This enable the data and information accumulated by one technique to be checked and affirmed by an alternate. For the secondary sources, I will search books, journals or any type of it from the internet. I will compare the different articles and analyze the arguments.
It was the beginning of my 5th grade year and the first time I was attending an only English class. My teacher, Mrs. Galvan, created activities and set us in groups for us to interact with our classmates. My group was friendly to me, and I explained to them that it was my second year learning English and the first time I attended an only English class. They knew Spanish but we were only able to speak English in class, so I tried my best to speak English with them. The last activity we had that day was a competition about previous readings we had to do.
Ever since I entered ICU, it is one of my goals to be an exchange student, because I want to spend one year in other country to study in different language during my college life. In that way, I can broaden my mind and learn different ways of thinking in that country. Every time I travel other countries, that experience makes me feel like I can see many things clearer than before. Also, by changing my environment for a year, I want to learn many things that I cannot learn in Japan. The experience of living in other county for a year will be a good chance for thinking about my future and myself.
Once i'm enrolled in Central Oregon Community College (COCC) I will begin my 4 year apprenticeship program starting in September.
