Through this experience he learned how fundamental reading is for him. They are similar because they share the love of reading. For example Alexie loves reading because his father loved reading. On the other, Blow loves reading because of going to the store. They have similar stories as how they learned to read.
For example, because my discourse is more of a family than a community it has taught me that: even though you will come across people that you don’t like or get along with you still need to treat them with respect. Also, that you will come across classes where you will have to work together, just like in stage crew and there is more than one way to get your work done. Secondly, when in groups or having to deal with other individuals, they are human beings and will be different from you. But you cannot let other students walk all over you; and if you need to talk to a teacher it has taught me how to be assertive in my needs and wants. Without this skill, school would be much more difficult because without communication skills, you will fail.
A highly debated subject is- who should choose the novel to read in class, the teacher or the student? This argument is not one sided, as both sides are supported. I support that the teachers should decide on which books to read in class. The teachers have a better understanding of the curriculum, there won’t be conflict among students, and the teachers have a wider variety of book knowledge. To start, the teachers have a better understanding of the curriculum.
Also, attending to all my composition classes will help me be successful because I will have the opportunity to check the papers of my colleagues and vice versa. Checking the papers of my colleagues can help me find new writing styles and expand my writing skills; when my colleagues grade my papers, they will help me identify my weak spots in my writing. Another way to improve in my class is by attending to my professor’s office hours. All students need to take advantage of office hours if the professors have any. Attending to these office hours will help you get to know the professor a lot more.
Although I am very comfortable with my writing process, I know that there is always room to improve. One way I could improve mine is planning two different days to write my paper. This would give me a safety net just in case something urgent came up on the day I originally planned on writing my paper. Another way I could improve my writing process is by using actually books when I have to research something. I could cross- reference the information I find on the internet with what is in a book.
Session One When selecting our groups I was approached by another student who wanted to join us. One of my weaknesses is that I struggle to say no; I found the situation uncomfortable as I was aware of the feelings of the rest of the group. I could see the benefits of having an additional member as according to Preston-Shoot (2007) smaller groups are more likely to split into one to one interactions rather than developing as a group. I also felt that since I do not work closely with this student, it would give me a better experience of multi-agency working as they are usually unfamiliar to each other. However, my group did not want her to join as they both had a previous negative
I know how it feels to be left out, and let me tell you, it’s not fun. This year, I have been working my hardest to be someone others can lean on. My main goal right now is to be a friend to everyone. Sometimes, it’s hard to go and talk to the new girl or sit by the boy on the end of the table, because we fear that others will judge us for it, but in reality, that is far from true. When people see that you are kind and caring, they will begin to look up to you.
Most importantly, since the contents of this course are largely different from what I have learned in my major courses. I regard this as a rare opportunity for me to take on some new challenges, and I would like to take a chance to develop my leadership skills. Before attending this course, “leadership” is a word quite far away from me, and I only have some basic understandings of it. And I found out that most of my thoughts I had about leadership are very different from what it really is. In fact, leadership is an art rather than a science.
I let their opinions control the things i do. At some point everyone was scared to get up and talk to their peers in front of the class, but then there is those few people who get up and can talk like they are talking to their bestfriend and couldn 't care at all about what others are thinking about them. My biggest challenge in life right now is caring so much about the opinions of others. I let them control the way i live my life, i 'm quite and don 't talk or act a lot. But what if no one had the power to not care about others opinions how differently would the world be, people wouldn 't be scared to be themselves, no one would be feeling like they don 't belong because everyone wouldn 't care about the opinions of others.
If everyone is not interacting with the group this can cause the group to fall apart, because some people may feel like they are not apart of the group. What are some ethical issues in group practice? Some ethical issues in-group practicing is confidentiality, conflict between group members and group decision-making. Sometime in a group it can be hard to keep members confidentiality simple because it is not an individual setting it is a group setting which means that there is higher probability that member confidentially wont be kept. Shulman, L. (2012).
Good writing stems from a strong foundation of reading skills. I remember sitting in the library of Griswold Elementary School listening to the librarian Mrs. Church telling us how if we are good readers we are good writers. As the group of eager little children that we were, writing was something that we loved to do and participated in often, so a chance of becoming better at it just made us want to read more. In this same library, the PTO held the annual Scholastic Book Fair, this event allowed kids to browse a selection of books and develop a understanding of the personal book genre that they enjoy. As children, you love to read and are encouraged to do so by your parents, friends and teachers.
Also i have to be in a good sitting position to stay concentrated. My second everest goal is to make new friends. I can do that by working and talking with people i dont know. I can do that also by not being shy. Not being shy is hard for me because i really have to know a person to talk to them about some stuff that i am not comfortable talking to people i don 't know about.
