I should be National Junior Honor Society because I have good character, citizenship, service, and leadership. I show citizenship in and out of the school every minute.

Additionally, the lack of seriousness transitions into students being uninterested in school because they have to take unnecessarily long tests. Not only do standardized tests cause lack of school interest but they increase students stress. Having to sit through a test that impacts your grade, represents your intelligence, and future adds a lot of pressure to oneself. Overall, when standardized tests aren 't taken seriously the data collected makes it hard for educators to improve education, students lack motivation, and adds a lot of pressure to people 's everyday lives. Typically, standardized tests are multiple choice meaning students can guess for every question without understanding how to solve the problem.
I seriously think that Holden is a very insecure person, and he does not do well when he does not have a strategic plan or some form of familiarity. I can relate to him in this aspect, not to the point to where I flunk out of school though. I feel like I do best when I am familiar with a situation or have a plan that helps me to set a goal. I feel like it is very hard to strive for something when you have nothing to strive
Richard C. Stazesky, in his article entitled, “Gorge Washington, Genius in Leadership”, wrote that Washington had the qualities of a visionary leader. When defining a visionary leader, Stazesky states, “. . . In brief, the visionary leader has a vision into the far future, can develop an effective organization and can attract others to strive also for the attainment of his/her vision so that it becomes a shared vision and they all work together in an organization that sustains the vision, its beliefs and its values.” One of many examples of Washington’s visionary leadership was his commitment to the concept that, in a republic the military must always be subject to civilian control.
I am an open minded person, and realize there Leadership Philosophy is more than one way to tackle an obstacle. I don’t want to be the type of leader that believes that “it’s my way or the highway.” I want to create an environment where Soldiers feel comfortable to share their thoughts and ideas without being ridiculed or ignored. In conclusion, having self-awareness of my leadership philosophy is very valuable, in that it allows others to an insight of the type of leader that I strive to be and it also provides myself with a more in depth insight of my own leadership
I became pessimistic. I started to ask myself, “Why do I have to try harder when I already failed?” I focused more on my failures and mistakes over my successes and excellence grades. I was never pleased with any grades I receive because I believed that I will always be a “failed person.” From my perspective, I couldn’t see the next exams as new opportunities where I can recover my past mistakes. My mind was still full of emotions that I had when I made the mistake last
To me, that’s kind of hard because I’m not a big fan of making essays. I feel like this quote is the most important one to me because it doesn’t defend me. When assigned an essay many teachers will tell you to avoid "I", "you", and "we". This can be a little difficult for me when writing an essay because I try to express my opinion. If I'm not able to state my reasoning, it's much harder because they aren’t many words to help my
Even though he has a quite abusive and unpleasant teacher, he is still determined to success, and he wishes to make his teacher proud. To prove to her, that he is in fact not useless and horrible. “My fear and discomfort crept beyond the borders of the classroom and accompanied me out into the wide boulevards… These things were out the questions, as they involved to speak… When the phone rang, I ignored it... If someone asked me a question, I pretended to be deaf”. (p.7 ll.
I have had a hard time pinpointing my exact thoughts while going through a form of cognitive dissonance. I tell myself “You don’t know what other people have gone through, so you can’t justify the argument.” But after telling myself that is an unfair accusation, I have come to a better understanding of why I disagree with it solely on the purpose of academia. The main problem I come across is where do you draw the line? At what point would students simply use this as an excuse to avoid class and what happens if it were to become something that is a daily disturbance in class? I also believe that teachers would have to alter their syllabi and classwork fastidiously to make sure each and every student would feel comfortable.
A few understudies come up short since they couldn't react to the showing styles, which keep them from learning, or they had a poor educator who was not able successfully convey the material. Personnel can't compel understudies to be locked in, yet they can without a doubt endeavor to get them drew in and make a "connected with" classroom." There is a huge scope of establishments and scholarly gauges. Understudies might end up at a school for which they are ill-equipped. The grounds atmosphere and/or size may not be by and by suitable.
III. Through my research on testing, I have found that the tests that we have all sat through are not as accurate as one may think. IV. Standardized Testing is not effective nor reliable due to its inability to effectively measure a student’s intelligence or ability, the pressure it applies to both the student and the teacher, and its negative impact on teaching curriculum. (To begin, let’s look at how testing gauges students) Body I. Standardized testing is not an accurate means to measure a student’s ability or
They want and need to be heard and they need to feel like they can trust their administrators. According to Kouzes and Posner, “Trust is the most fundamental element of a winning team” (2007, pg. 225). Without trust, a leader cannot be successful. Additionally, strong leaders must create a culture that encourages professional growth and allows staff to ask questions and challenge the process.
As a result of my desire to excel I developed anxiety. The negative aspect of my anxiety is that I have weak standardized test taking skills due to the constant thoughts of being perfect, thus my ACT and SAT scores are not indicative of my academic
