Speech for NJHS Induction Ceremony Good evening students, faculty, and family members! Thank you, Mrs. Reece and Principal King, for inviting me to this year’s National Junior Honor Society induction ceremony. Students, tonight we honor your achievements in the areas of Scholarship, Citizenship, Responsibility, Community Service, Character, and Leadership as we recognize and celebrate the choices, and at times the sacrifices, you have made. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "The reward of a thing well done is to have done it." You each have already done a lot, with many great things to come, so tonight we take a moment and appreciate your accomplishments and your potential!
In Oprah Winfrey’s Harvard Commencement Speech, like most graduation speeches aims to inspire the new graduates to enter the world with confidence and optimism. She encourages the graduates to force themselves to think the same way about failure as she does, or not see a lack of success as failure. For many, it will be the first time experiencing the real world, so she encourages all in the audience to not only redefine failure and hardship but also use their acquired knowledge for the benefit of all people. Oprah uses humor, optimism and inspiration, and life stories to help her audience understand how to define and overcome their own failures. Causing laughter twice within the first two minutes sets up a lax tone for the rest of her speech.
In the commentary, “Using Native American Folktales in the Classroom”, by Debbie Reese and the piece, “The Way to Rainy Mountain”, by Scott Momaday, authenticity is very important between these controversial articles. Establishing the authenticity of a text to be used in a high school classroom is imperative before assigning the text to be read by students. In commentaries by different authors, the authors depict Native Americans in many different ways. Before reading these articles students should establish the authenticity of the pieces of literature. In Reese 's article, she talks about how children should really know the history of Native Americans not just what they looked like based on pop culture.
Our most appreciated administrators and teachers, dear parents, adored friends, ladies and gentlemen, a pleasant morning to you. It is a great privilege for me to be standing here in front of you to express the happiness that we feel in our hearts today. I am Amal a student who has been going to AIS for 8 years now. They say “Today we learn, tomorrow we lead”. That’s true those three years made a difference.
She uses ethos here because the speech is from a graduation and she’s an expert in graduating because she experienced it herself and she has an excellent life now. “Now all I have to do is take deep breaths, squint at the red banners and convince myself that I am at the world’s largest Gryffindor reunion” (Page 1, column 1, line 10-13) This is an allusion because it’s a reference to her well-known Harry Potter book series. This reference is very good, because many people know of her work and therefore they will relate to the content. “I have decided to talk to you about the benefits of failure. And as you stand in the threshold of what is sometimes called ‘real life’, I want to extol the crucial importance of imagination” (Page 1, column 2, line 11-13) This is a metaphor, cause it’s comparing graduating to walking through a threshold into ‘real life.’ This is effective because it shows that the students are about to leave the
The prize would have to be something all the students would want to acquire and work towards. **I surveyed 45 freshman at Mentor and /45 said they are for stricter school protection. If the cause is something students are interested in, as they are, they will work for not only the prize, but the cause as well. ** If the school and district are serious about protecting our students, setting up fundraisers and events will not be a hassle and be worth it in the long run. Schools should be the one place that kids can feel safe, protected, and free from harm.
Helen Keller was an activist, who used her challenges of being deaf, and blind to help others with the same challenges. To help her along the way Helen Keller had a lot of motivations, had activism, and influences. One of her motivations were going to school to become educated. One of her activism was fighting for women’s rights. One of her influences was Anne Sullivan, who taught Helen to talk.
Murray discusses how young children are much better at memorizing facts than adults are, to support his position that kids should be memorizing this core knowledge at a younger age (Murray 224). Murray believes that students need to learn more about science, history, art, music, and literature than they’re being taught now. His argument is that they need to be taught this information before college, so that in once they become a freshman they can immediately begin focusing on their intended major (Murray 225). As a college freshman at a liberal arts school, I can confidently say that my previous schooling has prepared me well for a liberal arts education. I am continuing to learn things in my freshman year that I believe will prepare me well for my future endeavors.
We've seen her potential in the first few weeks of this school year where we all once introduced ourselves in front, we will never forget how she would let everybody know herself "Quiell Rio Balais, Grade 8 Temperance!!" (in a beauty queen tone and hand wave) I asked her a couple of questions via direct message and her answers would definitely make you love her more. So, come on and join me in getting to know her more in this article of mine as she is now the new "it girl"
Speaking of stress,"55% of adolescents are stressed out from school, especially finals week" based on a study from the Palo Alto Medical Foundation. Expectations are highe geralt / Pixabay r than ever and the unwanted pressure doesn 't make them easier to achieve. Often times students put themselves under enough pressure, telling them they have bad grades doesn 't help. The biggest problem is that there is no relief. Youth sports were played as a release and your coach told you before every game to go out and have fun.
