This, coupled with the fact that conversations took considerably longer exacerbated my frustration. When I was able to communicate effectively and my partner correctly identified my statements, there was a sense of accomplishment. However, my communication partner would quickly respond using her speech, which left me with an uneasy feeling. In a conversation with two participants who speak, there is a familiar rhythm within a conversation. During this communication experience, I found that, due to my delayed ability to convey my message, I felt I was significantly holding back my partner, thereby, throwing off the familiar rhythm of a speech conversation which added to my frustration.
As a reader one has to know what to look for and identify the main idea and understand what the author is trying to argue. Before taking Writing 10 I felt I was a good reader and able to identify the main idea in a prompt, but little did I really know. After going through the research process and trying to identify reliable sources I have essentially cut out the unnecessary information and I go straight to the idea or argument being made by the author. As of before, I would focus on every detail of the writing. Having been assigned readings and having discussions about the readings during class, I soon realized that writing is about an argument being made with supporting evidence.
My teacher really has my fellow classmates and myself ready for reality. She taught us everything we needed to know from the simplest to the most difficult techniques and has us prepared us for college. From the way she would teach us and also the way she treated us was an excellent way to show how the real life of a college student really does face on a daily bases. I’ll leave the class by having the prior knowledge of knowing what and how to write an argumentative essay and know how to simply justify the reading side and confront my face my fierce. This year taught me so much that I use certain techniques to help me in other subjects.
I will already have enough on my plate with soldiers and the organization, so adding more stress will prevent me performing to the best of my abilities. Stress is inevitable but I can control some aspects of it by being patient. I sometimes find myself rushing to get things done and I over look certain instructions that are essential to my task. The quality of my work and tasks can suffer from being impatient. Having more patients will result in work and leadership that meets and exceeds the
This was apparent mainly in the initial part where I went on to ask another question even before the first one was answered. For instance, I greeted her and continued talking before she could respond to my greetings. On one hand, it could mean that I was overzealous to start the peer helping conversation. But I couldn’t deny the other view where it could also mean that I was impatient and I was more concerned with the professional aspect rather than incorporating the aspect of social concern. After reflecting on the video, I realized I should have waited for an answer before proceeding.
I learned how to find, gather and manage my ideas. For example I used an outline to write both my argumentative essay and the synthesized essay. The outline was really helpful since it gathered my ideas in an organized way. In addition I learned how to plan and structure my essay. For instance while thinking about the synthesized essay and the amount of resources needed to write it, I made a plan which helped me manage everything on time.
So, it prevents a connection from being made. I am much more likely to have an in-depth, ongoing conversation with someone if we can easily have a nicely-flowing conversation. The effects from the lack of a bond being made can be anything from in the case of a job, a sale being less successful, to the prevention of a friendship being made. Or even, in the case of an education, someone may not understand the material because of the accent of a professor or another student. Such as in “Learning the Language” the terms used by medical professionals create confusion for those not yet fully integrated into the group.
Everything I learned in this class has helped me in some way from learning how to do an interview, making a resume, talking about myself in a short manner. To start my search off I used the Vandiver center for career development resources, indeed, and Charlotte agenda to locate internships. I received call backs for the Special Olympics of North Carolina Development/ Programming Internship, a marketing analytics intern, and lastly an internship for the admissions- even though I did not accept any of these internships they all said that my resume was well formatted and impressive. Learning to send follow up emails were also helpful because it allowed me to find out more information without pressing too much. Also I learned that when you are not prepared for pone interviews then you should not answer the phone and call back when you feel prepared and
Conclusion My takeaway from this class, especially in my personal situation, is that sometimes you need to have a more delicate method when discussing a touchy subject. As Blakely and Day (2012) asserted, I was self-centered and provided high challenge and low support (p. 18). This made for a very hostile and defensive conversation that quickly turned into a fight. I will not do that again, I will certainly use some of the things I have learned here to make this a more informative, respectful discussion. There are different ways to get to the ZOUD and they should all start with being ethical in a coaching situation.
I will continue to review the several strategies and techniques a writer can utilize to keep them sharp in my mind. Additionally, I will take similar courses like this one to strengthen my knowledge and writing skills. Minor Comparison and Contrast Explanation I chose to include my comparison and contrast minor paper in my writer 's log because it was the one I fully immerse myself in. I was able to express my supporting details in a comprehensible manner. Which helped me avoid creating misunderstandings that could affect the purpose of the entire paper.
Reflective Letter on MWA #1 I believe that the purpose of major writing assignment number one was to improve our interview skills and solidify our understanding of genre as used in the context of our class. For this writing assignment I created a Weebly website that is meant to teach the class about the most important genre used in the field of computer science. To successfully do this I first gave a brief description of what computer science entails and that what it does not, I then followed up the description with a few questions and answers from my interview while also describing my professor that I interviewed. Finally, I began writing about my genre—developmental collaborative writing on a whiteboard—and gave its purpose followed by a few links. These links lead to the descriptions of my genre’s audience, rhetorical factors, structure, and style of writing; with all of the information presented on my website there should be a good enough description of developmental collaborative writing to help my fellow classmates understand what it is.
Part D: Training needs identification research Explore the range of opportunities there are for providing the training to staff e.g. in house training, coaching and mentoring, external training, etc. You should explore at least one external opportunity and construct an email that you might send to an external training provider seeking information about the training. Your email must be written clearly and respectfully. Include a copy of the email as an appendix to the one page report as indicated below.
