One way is to be very organized. I learned every year how to be organized and I learned new techniques to improve. AVID helped me significantly to be organized. I feel like organization is a key to college because if I was not organized, it will be hard for me to find my assignments and I do not think I will do well. All my teachers love my binders because it is neat, organized, and easy for them to find assignments.
I, first, met frustration in 10th grade when I scored D in first essay in my life and it was when I first realized I needed to try harder than what I did in the past. By recommend from my counselor, I decided to take first regular English class in 10th grade; I still got help from ELD class but having regular English class with my 2 years of English knowledge, it was very challenging. Nevertheless, there’s no “give up” in my vocabulary. During class, I could maintain same pace with my classmates by helped from my pink electronic dictionary and at home, I frequently stayed up late to preview the lecture for tomorrow or studying English. As a result, I finished English 10 with A, and the status between my classmates and I totally changed.
As a teacher he is there when you need him but does not do the work for you. This has helped me learn to take more responsibility as I am approaching the end of my high school career and preparing for the responsibilities of college life. I intend on attending kettering university. I went on a visit there and enjoyed all they have to offer. I selected this college of all because they give you the best opportunity to start your career early.
Speaking with confidence makes people assume you do know what you are talking about. The many new skills I gained when taking this course was to shorten a whole outline of what you plan to talk about and having to minimize into a specific time range. The most helpful part about having a time requirement when delivering a speech is to say your important information, state your main points and close it off. It also makes the presenter not wander off and say irrelevant information. The utilization of ethos, pathos, and logos to persuade was one of the many skills I gained this quarter.
Time management: Time management is a very crucial component if you are willing to have a productive lifestyle. To be honest, I have always had issues with managing my time efficiently. This problem had become a huge obstacle once I got into college. Thus, attending a lecture that focuses on time management helped me a lot with this problem by introducing me to different aspects related to time management: planning, SMART goals, and important/urgent matrix. Learning to make a specific plan for my daily tasks and make a to-do list to make my day as productive as possible is something very helpful which was advised to me by the instructor of this lecture Mr. Irfan.

I didn’t want to learn how to read and risk mispronouncing a word I should have known. This fear followed me all the way through high school and to be perfectly honest, I still hate speaking in front of the class. I would do what I had to and force myself to read the assignments given to me in English class. I remember feeling different like there was something wrong with me for not wanting to read. I felt imprudent for not excelling in reading and writing, watching my friends surpass me was devastating.
For the very first time, I realized that somebody higher in status is reading my assignment and willing to send me feedback of what I did well and what I needed to correct. The feedback was massive for me and it has shaped and sharpened my writing skill. Finally, I feel so motivated that I had to read and reread the reviewed work and the note from the instructor. It serves as a motivating factor to perform better than before. ACTIVITIES COMPLETED 19/09/2015 Today, I completed the three assignment assessment.
According to her, there are many reasons why is it important for a student to study in colleges. One of the most important ones is career opportunities. It is known that financial stability is a very important factor for survival in society. One can only find a good and well-paid job after completion of the degree. Although higher education appears to be complementary or competitive, yet college education can provide a boost to a student’s career and this is the only way to excel and proceed further for more career opportuni¬ties as well as to polish one’s skills.
Speech felt like a wonderful new world of possibilities when presenting an argument or new information. When I got to community college, I took my Communication 101 class and found that it was so much more than my high school Speech class. We discussed interpersonal and intrapersonal communication, the different types of fallacies, and ways to read body language. The lecturer told us on the first day of class that his passion had been in Communication Studies since he was a freshman in college and that was something that resonated with me. Every day I was able to match his excitement for the subject.
