Factors that have hindered me historically over this degree has been my hesitation towards working in collaboration with others. This was a new experience and a learning curve which I admittedly took with quite some hesitation. I now see the logic in my future career of teaching that collaboration and learning through social constructivism is an essential part of academic development (Young, 2007). Since coming to this realisation, I have begun to actually enjoy communicating and sharing ideas and strategies with fellow students. Furthermore, there comes a personal gratification when you have helped another student overcome a problem through advice or research that you shared with them.
It is so crucial to do this because if not, your paper won’t be the best that it can be. In college comp I want to improve even more on my writing. I would like to learn more tips to writing and fix up my mistakes too. I want to better my knowledge with more words that I can use in my essays. Repeating words is a bad habit I need to change.
I will try to conduct far more interviews than I did this year. I did not realize the importance of interviews this year – I wanted to find just one person to be my mentor and I wanted to do it as quickly as possible. More interviews would have proven to be a good thing, as they provide a variety of perspectives and I would get a more rounded view of the
Secondly, I grew to love helping others in their writing through the use of peer editing. In the end, there were things I learned through this class that I can apply to who I am as a writer, how I have developed as a reader, and what I have learned as a critical thinker. As a writer, I have learned that I need to condense my words and be able to effectively communicate what I am saying and to be able to write in various different styles using one particular method and approach. In my particular case, writing is a gradual process, and I look forward to continuing to grow in composing assignments more effectively. I have observed that I can write an effective paper but it may take me longer to fully
Allowing others to permeate my mind, dispel my own ignorance, and open up to their cultures has made all the difference. I have made new friends and learned from their experiences while securing the ties of friendships past. Along with my acceptance I have an insatiable thirst for knowledge. I yearn to broaden my horizons and create opportunities where none can be found. Some may say the most important aspect of a high school education is maintaining grades.
It’s easy to forget this article is about teaching in Primary and secondary school. To start off on a personal note the language in this article was very interesting and hard to follow at times, but i wouldn’t have it any other way. The reading Pedagogy of the Oppressed by Freire was profound read I found myself enthralled throughout, the language though extreme calling teacher the oppressors, get the point across effectively. Its describes students as actual people forced against their will. This point of view is the most interesting part, I would have never expected to see a reading that looks at student in such a way.
Writing should have been something so first nature to me, but through the help of Mrs. Hermanson and her positive attitude, eager teach, and nurturing nature, I felt unafraid to make mistakes, I became more confident in my writing and ready take on the world of writing. When I was required to writing my first essay, I was so nervous due to the lack of confidence I had in my writing abilities. I was afraid if I didn’t
Why? As I mentioned earlier, the best way to achieve quality learning is to work together, so we have expectations and tasks from both parties, I believe that the expectations presented in the document are very conscious and try that both students and instructors are committed to learning in an arduous and committed way. I just hope they are very understanding because I am very new in this and I have not felt so much affinity with writing, but it is in my favor that I always try hard with my tasks. • What expectations do you have for how instructors and classmates treat your
Constant writing, proofreading and a little bit of constructive criticism is what I expected from this course. Upon entering the course my expectations were surpassed, Dr. PHP was not an easy teacher but she was an effective teacher. Her lessons and explanations in class worked well for me especially in my writing. Giving us handouts dealing with grammatical errors like comma splices and giving us examples in class of how an outline should be written really helped out a lot. Another thing that
I started to like it. I thought about the things gls has helped me with and I came across many things. We did the writing process which I thought was helpful. We talked about the worst thing that happened in 2017 and had to write an essay about it. So not only did it prepare me for my future essays in english, it also helped me with my research skills in a way.
I am proud of this assignment because it took a lot of time and I actually grew to love the assignment. It took time, to find the right format, research my questions on what the font or order of the content would be. It was interesting and fun to write a different type of writing style. I improved on Information Skills by that I learned what kind of sources professors/teachers love and what sources they dislike. I also learned that there is no harm in asking the teacher what kind of sources they suggest.
The first event was a consistent thing which was teachers correcting my essays . Every time I would receive an essay or an assignment I would always have an error with using the words " their and there" and using the right conjunction words. The problem that I had was when I was younger I wasn 't taught how to use those words. For an example instead of using the word your correctly I would use it "You 're a pretty cool person." When in reality you 're supposed to use it with the word "you 're."
I love to learn new languages and challenge myself to do the very best in my Latin class. I love to learn about history and other countries in World Studies. Above all I love to learn more about Jesus, God, the Holy Spirit, and the Bible through Christian Studies. I show leadership because of many reasons. When we are put into groups in classes or at my youth group, I lead the rest of the group, keeping them on track and doing what we are supposed to.
