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 helped me in this class is the journals, even though I did not feel like doing them they help me spot a lot of my silly errors and grammatical mistakes.
One thing that is a major change is that you will have a ton of different teachers and you will now have to get to know them considering you are stuck with them almost all four years, you always have the evil teacher who for some reason hates your guts just by you existing in the same world they do, just by breathing the same air they do but whatever, but then you have the really cool teacher who is pretty laid back and is one of your favorite teachers out of them all. It is sad to leave all of your middle school teachers behind but they will survive, and if you live in a small town like me, you will see them
In this six-year period, I suffered a lot from study pressure physically and psychologically because I had to give up all my hobbies and spare all my leisure time working on the college entrance exam questions. But my memories about middle school were not just awful, I also had a wonderful time with my classmates and friends who shared the happiness and sadness, ups and downs with me throughout these six years. Learning and life experience in secondary school was totally different from that in primary school. But for most Chinese students, the only purpose of attending high school is to maintain an excellent academic record, pass the college entrance exam and enter a top university. But that was not how I saw it.
Hawthorne’s writing style provides readers with a more vivid and colorful reading experience that hopefully pushes them to be more engaged in what they are reading. In having to decode the majority of the novel, it leaves a mysterious and open effect on the entire book. With all this in mind, it is important to recognize Hawthorne’s subtle use of literal devices like alliteration such as “married, happy, and mindful of her mother” (Hawthorne, 360) in his writing. Slight additions such as this spice up his typically repetitive language and peak interest on readers by keeping them on their toes. In having all the skills to represent the darkness and beauty in life in remarkable ways, Hawthorne uses syntax in The Scarlet Letter to improve and enhance the overall quality of his
I wasn’t the smartest cookie in the jar but when I went to school I felt like the students and teachers made me realize even more that I was not so smart. Fearing not finishing my degree comes from my past and the way I was talked at by people, telling me that I wasn’t going to amount to much. When people bash me saying things such as I might not even make to high school graduation just because I was not as smart as others in
One friend beat all of them though she was my best friend Skylar. We meet in 6th grade we didn 't become friends until we both moved schools in 7th grade we clicked instantly. When high school came around the corner we weren 't talking I had another friend I hung out with she was a terrible influence on my physical and mental health. Having friends and people that you can go to really helps you if they are the right kind of friends. 9th grade was much different than 8th there were more people, much older then me that were more experienced in every aspect of the word.
The reality of it hit me when I didn’t have to get up at five in the morning,which is what my daily routine called for. In that moment thousands of depressing thoughts rushed through my head. I knew I would miss getting off the bus, seeing my friends circled around each other, and then scurrying to greet me. I would miss the freedom of walking down the halls with my phone in my hand and drama on my mind. I wouldn’t get to complain about how much I didn’t like my classes, when deep down I loved the majority of them.
I really liked school had very few friends and some friendly teachers but when I got home I used get homework and never liked doing it, had complaints from teachers, a lot of parent-teacher meetings, many arguments with my parents and I still couldn 't correct it. I also had no patience and self-control. So ultimately one day my parents were fed up and wanted to teach me a "life lesson". You need to experience the outside vibe in order to learn your mistakes and the more life you experience the more lessons you accumulate. So when I was 7, I went to boarding school in India, at first I was very happy because no parents, you 'll have so much fun with friends, and no one can rule you.
“The beginnings are sometimes scary, endings are usually sad, but it’s the middle that counts most” That is true for a lot of things in everyday life, like starting school. Many young people see going to school as a chore and only go because they absolutely have to, while some will even skip school because they see it as boring and unnecessary. However, going to school is incredibly important for your career, future education, social and communication skills. When I first got to high school everything was strange, scary and new, for the first time there were new people to meet as well as new teachers. There was now also a lot more work and homework.
This gave student’s arguments and opinions great strength. As a result, one group project took the childhood literature of Dr. Seuss and showed how an innocuous piece of a children’s rhyme was so racially charged with subliminal messages was eye-opening. Those innocent texts held so many hidden prejudices that I never saw before I found amazing to uncover. This model of learning new knowledge I hold dearest to my love of academia. The funny thing about Dr. Pan’s class was all of the students were at first so behind in their knowledge of theory, but by the end of the term, we all became particular experts in the discipline we chose to speak about.
