Now, after going through the qualitative research methods course, discussion in the classroom, going through different literature and based on the new learning, I realized that the theoretical framework for any research is beliefs of the researchers. It could be about the about the nature of reality, the sources of knowledge and how is that knowledge gained. I also learned that these beliefs are interlinked with the research paradigm, methodology, methods and tools for data collection. The different research paradigms / framework are interpretivist/ constructivist, post-positivism, pragmatism and critical inquiry. The approaches include; case study, ethnography, life history, case history, phenomenology, grounded theory etc.
I did not always share a love or appreciation of writing, however for as far back as I can remember I have always had a love for art. I can remember intensely eyeing the clock in school waiting for the little hand to strike on the hour signaling the time for a change of classes, with each strike on the hour bringing me closer to my cherished Art class. However, every day one dreaded class stood between me and my passion for art, my writing class. I swear the clock never ran slower than it did during English, I truly couldn’t have cared less for reading or writing. It was 7th grade a new year, new teachers, staring at my class schedule I quickly realized nothing has changed, scheduled right before sixth period art class was my nemesis English and Writing class.
Join Narumi Kouki, a hardworking manga author who is still a student as he tries to juggle work and studies. To complicate matters for Kouki, he is pressured into joining the student council where he finds himself with more responsibilities as well as the only guy among a group of beautiful girls. Wagamama High Spec is a typical slice of life visual novel with a school setting, but the charming characters, humor and different routes make it stand it from the competition. There’s nothing really new here for people who are tired of the setting or tropes, but the writing is good and the visuals very
I have a drive for trying, even if I fail, I try again. Art has always been an interest in my life, however I never took it seriously until I went to State Fair Community College. My junior and senior year of high school I attended the graphic design program in Sedalia, Missouri at State Fair Community College’s Career and Technology Center. In the program, I learned how to use Adobe software programs such as Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, and Dreamweaver to design items such as print materials, signs, sublimation items, t-shirts, and basic web design. This knowledge has shown me that I can become a “designer,” and I want to pursue graphic design as a career.
How to Improve Education The world has changed greatly, we see new improvements and breakthroughs in technology every other day. Contrary to this, education has not changed. Everyday we hear students complain about school being ‘boring’, ‘uninteresting’, and ‘useless’. Teachers always have to deal with questions such as ‘When will we ever use this in real life?’ or ‘How is this relevant’. Teachers deal with the repetitive complaints from students every day and get frustrated not knowing how to deal with them, or how to keep them interested while still teaching them.
I don't know how this popped in my head. I thought of delivering a persuasive speech regarding my issue, but i had a another big issue facing me, i was never good at writing. My English teacher have always loved the way i think. He started teaching me since grade 2 and since then, up to the sixth grade he continued teaching me and pushing my self confidence to the maximum limit. I always saw him my second father my eldest brother since i didn’t have one.
Reflection can been described as a process of turning experience into learning, that is, it is a way of exploring experience in order to learn new things from it. Accrding to Boud, eogh, and Walker (1985:19) define reflection as “those intellectual and affective activities in which are engaged in by individuals to explore their experiences in order to lead to new understandings and appreciations”. Reflection often involves taking the unprocessed, raw material of one’s experience and engaging with it Inorder to derive sense from what has occurred. It often involves exploring messy and confused events and focusing on the thoughts and emotions that accompany them. Reflection can be undertaken as an informal personal activity either for its own sake or as a part of a structured course.
I even enjoy typing lab reports and explaining what occurs in my experiments, but I dislike writing in the realm of English academia. I would be able to fill dozens of pages with plans by essays were always a difficult to produce. For me, writing essays are like paying a bills you don’t want to pay or going to the dentist with a toothache. I think the problem began when my teachers would request for me to write about how I felt based on different prompts. I knew how I felt, but it was mentally difficult to transcribe my feelings so that others could understand them.
Thus I started studying English literature. It was the first time that I got a chance to study and learn about the key role of history and theory of art. While at school I got a chance to support my inherited skill under the supervision of sophisticated instructors. I have spent the significant number of hours in art classes which improved my drawing and painting skill dramatically through working with a variety of materials such as gouache, acrylic, water color, oil color, and
It not only allows for you to reflect on yourself within a certain timeframe or period, but the ability to reflect amongst yourself continually. The continuum of reflection is a access tool that allows us to concurrently recognize the manner in which we as educators presently reflect and most importantly, guide us to deliver the modified, distinguished support that we all need to grow as educators. Reflecting on my daily log will allow me to do such things. When I initially started the daily log, I was cautious about what to put and how to put it. I started my daily log by saying things such as “As I reflect on my profession today, I realized that I have no control over other actions of others.
