In order to further expand my knowledge in the science field, I decided to attend Queens High School for the Sciences (QHSS), a high school located in Jamaica, Queens that requires prospective students to take a rigorous entrance exam. QHSS places an emphasis on the sciences as a college-preparatory curriculum which can not only deepen my interest in science, but also provide me with a glimpse of college-level academics. I have taken Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, the core science courses. After my sophomore year of high school, I had fulfilled the required amount of credits for science. However, my enthusiasm and dedication to the subject encouraged me to take Advanced Placement Physics this year as a junior.
I was lucky enough to have the same little for three years and she brought so much light to my life. She was a deciding factor in my decision to pursue education. When working with my little those ah-ha light bulb moments are what made it all so enjoyable. Being able to help her have those moments and figure things out that she thought was too difficult mad me realize I wanted to help students every day find the potential that they didn’t know that they
After three and half years of undergraduate study in Civil Engineering, I feel completely satisfied with my decision to choose engineering as my career option as it has revealed most pragmatic and direct approach to tackle human problems to me. In this three and half years I had chance to learn various subjects like Geotechnical engineering I and II
From the start, you have commented on my text stating that it “challenges the reader,” and that “you love [my] sentence style”. The feedback that you provided on my Personal Essay stayed intact throughout the semester, and was even more available in my Destination Essay. I had “interesting ideas” and “big moments” for the audience, according to you. Based on these comments, my self-awareness regarding my voice improved greatly in each assignment. I grew as a writer in the sense that I provided riveting topics and ideas for the reader each and every time; I felt that I engaged the audience well because I was able to switch up the mood occasionally.
Along with chapter 2, we learned about different learning styles. I really enjoyed this class period and this chapter because I learned that I am a visual learner. I have already started to relate this to my life and study habits. Chapter 3 was all about discovering self-motivations. I really needed this chapter and it came at the perfect time because it was right around the time I was slacking off on my goals.
Over the course of taking this college class I believe I have learned lots of tools to help me further on in my college career. I have had an amazing college experience with great people and a great professor to teach me new great things about the experiences I will continue to have through taking college. As I have the ability to take college classes I find that through it this class has prepared me to become a succesfull college student through the lessons taught. I am satisfied with my performance in this course as I believe I did very well through the class. I am satisfied in how I learned the subjects of this class and important and valuable concepts of information to help me.
Nowadays, in the era of globalization, foreign language is becoming more and more important to stay in the skyrocket competition but many people feel a lot of difficulties in learning that language because they don’t follow an appropriate method of learning the language. They try to take shortcuts, which results failure in the end. Learning a foreign language is an art where a student need to practice reading, writing, speaking and listening appropriately. The essay will further elaborate the practice details in depth. Starting with the most important topic reading, where a lot of people feel resistance while facing that, firstly, one should follow up the techniques which he/ she was using in his/ her mother language.
It's time for new beginnings, a fresh start. English… I have started to like this class. I now enjoy coming to class, instead of it being boring and not interesting. This class has taught me, that when practicing your skills they will become much stronger. Well, I never thought I would make it but, I’m still hanging in there strong!
I have had the good fortune of interacting with some of the best minds in the country and some of the most talented professors. I have always enjoyed the academic life-the experience of taking classes, learning from interesting books and participating in lab-sessions, discussions and group assignments. AICHE’s centennial celebration committee published a list of 30 ground-breaking Chemical Engineering books. When I saw this list, I was amazed to find that I had read a few of these books in my undergraduate curriculum. Therefore, I set about to find and read the remaining books, a mission which I believe will achieve its culmination in my graduate studies.
Over the past week and a half of teaching writing, consistently, I have learned a lot about the learners needs when it comes to writing and the importance of teaching writing specific to each discipline. In kindergarten, writing is a dreaded subject for many learners. There are so many basic skills that learners have to focus on (such as writing left to right, using spaces, forming letters, etc) that they do not truly get to enjoy their time to write. They cannot just focus on the writing aspect, they have to focus and think about all the little things as well. During this lesson, I wanted to use writing as a time for the students to reflect over the text, rather than for pure assessment (p. 63).
