As a student of Bronx Community College, I was so excited when I first entered campus. At the same time, I was frightened since the school system in the United States was different from my country Ghana. The term began and I started classes. There the problems started, I did not hear what both the lectures and the students were saying. Everything was like a foreign language to me, and neither do they understand me when I speak. Because of this, I could not speak out and read in class. I was always a spectator. I have to record every class lessons and play them over and over. I always try to pay critical attention to follow and understand what is been thought in class. Though, I could not speak or read in class, but I was performing well in the written exercises and examinations. After the first semester, then I started picking up with speech and asset but was not that much. I started taking the science class from the second semester. Some of the topics were okay to go with and some were hard and difficult.
This September I will be going off to high school. I will be attending Monsignor Farrell High School in Staten Island. I can’t wait to go to high school and take a big step toward adulthood. I expect a lot of things will happen in high school and I am looking forward to it.
The ideal model of schooling for young adolescents is the middle school model. The middle school model allows for a smooth transition from elementary school to middle school. The model also takes into consideration the developmental needs of adolescents. The middle school model best fits the uniqueness of the young middle school learner.
As a freshman the transition was some what difficult for me. These are somethings I think would be good to new for the middle schoolers that are tranistioning into highschool. First keep organized. I can 't stress that enough because if you don 't you will lose things really easy and become a real mess. Another thing is a personal opinion but I don 't think that going to your locker every passing period is a good idea. I think the lockers should mostly be used for before and after school things or in case of emerngcy stuff. I rather use a backpack with everything I need for my courses and then keep coats, gloves, makeup remover, and ect in my locker. Lastly you will find who your true friends are in highschool so a tip is stay away from the
As a first generation college student, I have the desire to not only make my parents proud of my academic achievements, but to be the first person in my family to receive a college degree. At a very young age, I was always expected to receive A’s and B’s in my school assignments, as well as my final grades. However, I was never rewarded or congratulated whenever I did receive those grades because it was already expected of me to achieve them. Hence, a time in which I have experienced failure but also felt like I let my family down was when I received a D in my Critical Thinking course I was already retaking for the second time.
In the fall semester of 2015, my English Composition 1 class with 3 classes-per-week started. To conduct this paper I will briefly describe me. I am a freshman with the major of Petroleum Engineering. This information is relevant, in fact, because I will compare my expected major writing and the writing I am using right now. In a way to introduce me to future academic writings, the course of English Composition 1, indeed, has taught me important skills that can help me cope for future non-major required courses for me and in some aspects of my major. First, with the help of the “Create a Research Space” (CARS) Model of Research Introductions by writer and linguist John Swales, I learned how to decipher some readings by famous writers such
“Baby, I promise I’ll be back soon. There’s no need to cry, I’ll be back before you know it.” The worst phrases that I was accustomed to hearing almost every year. Being with your mother is a place that will forever be a child 's favorite sanctuary, however, I never experienced that sacred temple. Because of this missing piece in my life, transitioning has never been easier.
“ More students fail ninth grade than any other in high school”. The writer Korbey and Willens argues ninth grade is the most important grade. It's important for students to stay on track ninth grade year. When students fail their ninth year , it's hard for them to bring their self up.
Lots of people say that middle school is hard, has lots of responsibilities and you have to be on time for everything. Then I thought there weren 't serious till I actually went to middle school myself. Soon after elementary I went to a middle school that I went to was called Lincoln middle school, it wasn’t a big school, but it was a decent school. When I first went into that building I was excited to make new friends and meet my teacher, but then this lady that was the 6th grade dean(consular) gave me this piece of paper that had many classes on it and I ask her “why there are so many classes?” she says “Because that how middle school works”.After words I went to my first class which was math and the math teacher told me and the class that
Honors Algebra 2 for myself seem better than my other math classes. My class was the last period and only had around 11 students in it, which help make the class calmer. Mrs. Taylor is a teacher you get along because she is nice but just don’t push her buttons.
Most high school students are subject to an everyday routine consisting of having classes all day, having to talk to teachers and go to extracurricular activities just to go home to study and sleep. If you have ever watched high school musical growing up you may have thought about what high school was really going to be like when you get there. Kids wonder if it will be similar to the movie or if it will be completely different than they thought. High school and high school musical have their similarities originating from everyday life when in reality they differ in the reality of students, teachers, classes, sports and musicals.
High school is a crazy place for most because everyone is not going to be popular, very athletic, or the smartest person in the classroom. Also regardless of how it looks outside looking in everyone will have a hard time in high school whether it 's an athlete trying to keep his or her grades up so they can play in the next game. Also, if it 's one of the smarter non athletic kids not making one of the sports teams because lack of athletic ability and the coach has his or her picks.
According to Zooey Deschanel, nothing can be as hard as middle school. I was a big scaredy cat when I started middle school in 5th grade. My guts were flipping and flopping on that first day. Even though I didn’t know any teachers or friends, I made new friends and met new teachers. I had Mrs. Wherley as a homeroom teacher, she was nice as pie to me. I liked how we could move around to classes instead of staying in one class for the whole day. The first few days I felt like I was part of a cattle drive and I was a little cow.
Attendance it is required to be at school every day on time and make up work should also be given on time unless if you have an excused absence. That goes for make up quizzes, tests, and writing which is only after school once a week. Late work as every teacher says is no exceptions. Being at school could improve your focus and help you graduate High School.
