With this being said, juggling school work, a job, and this class, I did not have any time for this paper. My Investigative Report did not meet the page length, audience identification, nor revision. I did not show any improvement in this assignment and once again received a 74 just like my profile. I realized at that moment I wasn’t fixing my issue and needed to change my act if I wanted to do this class. Luckily, I had the opportunity to rewrite this paper.
In college departments are required to have a certain amount of students enrolled in one of the departments courses. If a academic department in the school cannot reach a certain amount of students over a certain time the department will have to close. Arts and humanities classes are on the decline due to the number of job opportunities available. However, arts and humanities courses are important to help develop an understanding for literature and art. Many college students are not a fan of taking arts and humanities courses because the courses do not correspond with their major.

At an early age, reading these magnificent books, combined with his father’s unique example, helped Theodore form ideas and opinions that would remain with him throughout his life. Some parents, including Theodore’s mother, worried about their children, since they spent all there time reading. However, Theodore’s father encouraged Theodore to learn and educate himself in many different ways.
Although my high school offers a solid catalog of AP or CCP courses, the classes offered do not allow me to further my education in my fields of interest. For instance, I am potentially interested in pursuing political science as my major. My high school does not offer the wide assortment of classes offered at The Ohio State University. In conclusion, although there were potential difficulties in participating in the Academy, the downsides are negligible in comparison to the sheer value of this opportunity, monetarily and
While there was never a need for me to anglicize my name, it made me remember an odd incident back when I was an undergraduate student. Back when I was trying to find a thesis supervisor I often had to send emails to professors expressing my interest in working with them. For some reason, I noticed that whenever I signed the email off with my full name my email was ignored but when I signed the email with just my first name I often got replies, and invitations to meet with the professor in person to talk more about potential thesis ideas. While it may have just been a coincidence, it struck me as strange at the time and I would be lying if I said it did not bother me. Anyways other than that, I don 't think my name has caused me
Never would I have thought that the three major writing assignments that would shape and influence me into the writer I am today would come from of my LEJA classes, but they have. From a research paper about police obstructing evidence to a flyer about helping today’s youth. One of the assignments that I was assigned in my juvenile justice class was to write a pamphlet on what career we would want to have after graduation. My career of choice would be a correctional officer. For starters, I have no clue what the formal set up of a pamphlet should be, so I approached this assignment vulnerably blind-sighted.
One of the aspects of “Wild Geese” that truly struck my fifth-grade self was its use of imagery—I was drawn in particular to the extensive visual imagery in lines 8-13 (“Meanwhile the sun…heading home again”) and awed by the ability of text to evoke images of such clarity. Moreover, in addition to the intrigue of its use of literary devices and the complexity of its recitation, interpreting “Wild Geese” and finding meaning within it was a process that continued well beyond the end of my fifth-grade year, and the connotations of that poem continue to resonate with me. While the entirety of this story is too personal to share herein, “Wild Geese” was a poem that spoke to me on a very personal level. As I sometimes have a tendency to hold myself to unrealistic standards, “Wild Geese” was to me a reminder of the relative insignificance of the trivial matters with which I would preoccupy myself; nature became a symbol of that which existed beyond my narrow fixations and the wild geese a reflection of the inexorable passage of time—in essence, a reminder that “this too shall
My literacy had no real direction and lacking a road map to follow. This I learned upon entering college and the embarrassment of realizing that in fact I was just considered a high functioning illiterate in academic settings. Early development and adolescence Reading and writing were never promoted nor encouraged in my home as a child. My earliest recall of reading and writing came from the classroom. SRA’s (Skilled Reading Assessment) were the academic standard for learning reading and comprehension.
One barrier that I am currently facing is having an academic hold on my college account.Since getting a bad grade in a class,my GPA suffered greatly and I was not aware of the consequences.First thing was that I could not enroll in classes before a semester started without first having to talk to a counselor to let me take classes to bring my GPA up once again.The other thing is that I can no longer do ,as long as i have the hold ,is apply for financial aid,this implies that I have to pay for tuition out of pocket and that in specific is affecting my finances because as we all know classes are not cheap.Once I pay the classes,I have to also buy the books required for each class.It has been affecting me and my family because we knew we could rely on some of that left over money from the school to buy necessary things and it was helpful for me,a college student that normally does not have the best wages.
My native language is Spanish, yet I have always craved the English language. This unexplained desire has shaped my most significant life decisions, and I believe was triggered as a result of being born in a foreign country. I was born in Hong Kong, China, due to my father’s job. During my pre-school years in China I attended an English/Chinese dual-language school which I believe was where I first dipped my toes into this small puddle containing the English language. It was later in life that I discovered there was an ocean of knowledge available and I wanted nothing more than to let myself sink into it.
If an extra 2 years of college originally happened without guided pathways, what problem are they solving? This essay leads up to the readers to realize what small problems can be coming from Guided Pathways. Students are still not finishing on time and making career decisions even more difficult due to the fact that they aren 't allowed to switch majors/courses whenever they don 't feel comfortable anymore. The purpose for this paper to make improvements in this program, instead of just throwing out all the qualities it has offered. Some other issues I have come to notice are why are students spending so much time and money on classes that are useless for them?
