This class brought a side of me that I liked. This is my third full semester at college and because of this class I am more aware of my surrounding enviorment and people. I've developed the habbit of read the news paper in the moring before I start on my classwork.
How are they handling the pressure that I am putting on them? But I am far from perfect—so my hope and prayer is that even while I make mistakes, my children will always know that I love them and want the best for them. And furthermore, I hope to continue to study and understand why some children in my classroom simply do not grasp on to the concept of
I had succeed in public speaking skills because the teachers made us present all the time. I learned that I did not mind speaking in front of people and made me discover my passion at becoming a future lawyer and politician. For example, in civics class we learned about the government and had political debates, which I learned that I loved to argue with people. Also, with meeting new people I became more open minded to certain ideas that I would have not ever thought of, or spoken about because the school I was from had more conservative views on life. I had found my voice in a school that believed in respecting others point of views and finding ways to find a common understanding.
I didn't want to hold a full conversation with anyone in my class unless they were the one to approach me. From this day, I still remember how lonely I felt and how badly I wanted to be accepted. I dreaded to go to recess because I wasn't sure what type of crowd I would “ fit in” with. As I walked in class, I saw everyone divided into various cliques and eventually I found myself every week trying to fit in with a different one. I tried my best to act like those kids in order to fit in, I changed so many things such as my attitude, my clothing, my hairstyles and how I spoke in the span of one year.
some goals I had before I gave this speech was to talk slow and fluently. My group did very well presenting valid information with good citations. I thought I would have been more nervous than I was for this speech. In the end, I feel this speech went a lot better than I thought it would have gone and i'm glad I had the people I did in my
Page 3) this is what I mean that not only I am writing but I am also telling the person that is reading my assignment my point of view in what I just read. And also persuading the teacher that I have done my home work is like I am talking with him and telling how I see the author feelings. Not only did I learn to speak in letters but this class also make me practice my writing skills. Most of the work that we need to do in this class all of the requires to make good replies not only speaking but mostly to be written I sincerely do not think I am a good writer but this class had help me become a better one. I learn from the teacher that what I write it should stay as it is because the way that I am putting my words that is how I want the people to hear me.
I first recognized my interest in speaking during the sixth grade after I had gotten suckered into a theater class. At first was beyond terrified to even speak in front of an audience, or anyone that wasn’t my best friend for that matter. After an incident where I not only botched a monologue about a Peter Pan play gone wrong, but I stood in front of my theater class completely petrified and overcome by panic and nerves. Humiliation doesn’t
I was more confident with a smaller group of peers, but was determined to be able to speak confidently in front of a class. Now, this wasn’t like a switch flipping. I felt enormous anxiety when speaking up in class, and I would run over what I planned to say repeatedly, searching for fallacies in my argument, but it eased the worry that clouded my ability to speak. I did learn the importance of communication that day, and a reliance on communication has stuck with me. It was through this that I learned the power of being quiet.
Introduction When I first stepped foot in the classroom on the first night of this class, I knew this would not be just another ordinary college course, but I had no idea what I should expect. This class is much different in nearly every aspect from what I have come to expect in a college classroom. I am not walking into a lecture each evening when I go to class. Instead, I am entering an engaging atmosphere that allows us to work in teams, as an organization, and I can also expect a learning environment that allows me to grow while gaining an understanding of my own strengths and weaknesses. As we reach the midpoint of the semester, I have been put in a classroom that has taught me about myself by doing several different activities and
My views on ballet have not changed much because I knew what I wanted to work on, aiming towards and trying to find a goal that I can relate to for each exercise. By continuing to take ballet this semester, I can work on my weaknesses and areas where I do not keep my movement as continuous as I do with other movements. Even though I have strengths and weaknesses when it comes to taking ballet,I still
