Before enrolling into Writing 39C, I was afraid that I can’t handle it because writing has never been my best subject. I have always struggled in the process of putting my ideas together. After these ten weeks of collaborating and learning with my peers and professor, I found Writing 39C has been one of the most profound writing classes I have taken so far. This course has enhanced my understanding of rhetoric and how to conduct researches by using various type of evidence.
I was twelve when my team won the championship. “ Championships bring joy and happiness ,but takes a lot of work to get there. It was a warm and sunny day as I prepared to run the drills before the game. As my team and I were doing the drills such as sprinting,shooting, and passing I was already thinking about the game ,but realized I had to stay focused on the drills for now. As there were ten minutes before the game we kept on doing the drills until I heard my coach announcing the starting lineup.
While I was at home, I missed a half a unit and a test prep in algebra and the unit test was the next day. So when I got back to school, I had to take the test, and I had no idea what to do. If I was at school I would know what to do and would have done better. If a freshman wants to be successful they need to get to school and classes as much as
At first I wasn’t sure if I was ready to take Advanced Placement English Composition in my junior year but I still did. I was truly stressed that my work would be trashy but my teacher supported me in every way. We also had assignments to see if we understood literary terms. One assignment that I found intriguing was when I had to write things that I carried to school and each sentence had to be a literary device. This was one task I enjoyed because it was time consuming, challenging, and also using my previous writing knowledge to create an entertaining writing piece.
From the time I first started playing to the end, I wanted to get better, my brothers on the team pushed me and I had coaches that taught and pushed me. My first practice was in July, the summer before my seventh grade school year. It was so hot! I remember walking up to practice that had already started. I had no idea what I was doing, I was so frustrated that I had just
As well as the fact that I’m horrible at all my english classes, it might be a good idea to get those improved. I watch a lot of Youtube on my free time because when I get done with all my homework and chores around the house I chill.I don’t have many plans after school but I’ll take it one day at a time. Those are my plans for academic success. One of my academic plans is to pass all my classes with a C average. The reason I want a C is because my mom never wants an F or a low D in my grade book.
She made us write an essay about a book call “ to kill a mockingbird”. When I finish reading the whole book I started doing my essay so I could turn it in the next day so she could grade it and give it back to me the following week. Monday came and we started class with a free write reflecting on how good we did on the essay. I wrote that I was confident that I was going to get a seventy on it. But when the teacher give it back to me I saw my grade and got surprises because it had a huge eighty nine percent with a circle around it and a smile face on top saying excellent job.
I don’t mean to show off but I can’t really resist the temptation because I worked my way out all the way from the bottom to this point. I’m not brilliant, my intelligence isn’t innate then why should you have me as student in your school? Secondly, in my school, all students with good grades will be offered to be moved into international classes where studying is being conducted bilingually which is in Indonesian and in English. A student can only be offered this opportunity twice for the whole 3 years of senior high school. I was offered this chance twice but I rejected both of them.
Every parent wants their son or daughter to get good grades but my parents wanted me to have perfect grades since then, I have had an issue perfectionism. In high school, I had done well in classes. But now that I am in the second semester of college, I am shattering apart even though in the prior semester I was on the Dean’s list. I have so much pressure in college classes, not to
Thus, my mother decided that I will change my school the next year so for me to transfer I had to really work hard in the last term, term 3, so I can get accepted as an 11th grader. For the next two months that was left of the school year, I stayed up late to study and went to my teachers to seek help. I was eager to show everyone that I can pass this school year. After the two months, I sat for my final exams. I was so nervous and afraid of failing that I will stop my exam for a few minutes to just focus again.
Failure is perhaps one of the most influential things in people’s lives because it can alter the course of our actions, by teaching us persistence or leading us the opposite way. Through his book, Dr. Cleamon Moorer guides the readers through an intimate journey about his progression from failure to promise. Cleamon is from a small town of Detroit with parents, who love him and enforce discipline, but most importantly, they nurture his faith in Jesus Christ. He excelled in academics during both elementary and middle school, however, his mischievousness throughout those years earns him many disciplinary sessions. In high school, misbehavior becomes history, yet, his GPA suffers in the low C’s.
Good morning professor Jason, I am not agree with my final grade, I did everything you asked for. I was always active in the class, I did all my homework, and I was on the top with my discussion posts in blackboard and yellowdig. Also, I never saw how many points you give us from yellowdig. Can you please explain me how you break down my grade? Thank you in advance, Respectfully, Elizabeth Benitez
Most high school athletes across America share one common aspiration: play their sport at the next level in college. For a select number of fortunate athletes, that dream becomes a reality when they commit to a school and sign their letter of intent. But are they really fortunate? College athletics are oftentimes not as glamorous as one would think. The transition to college is not a walk in the park, but add a rigorous summer conditioning program, two-a-days everyday, and the pressures of coaches you have yet to impress, and you have a recipe for disaster.
At 13 years of age, I was on my second year in middle school, excited to graduate and go through high school. I was surprisingly good at all the other subject except math. I hated it to the point of skipping the day that I will have a math class which fortunately was not every day. One day, my father came across my report card and he found out I had a C in my algebra class. I was grounded for a week straight with tutorial after school every single day and he sent me to an academy on Saturday that taught me computer math at Rice University.
Being satisfied with accomplishments only sets people at a certain level of grit for a lifetime. People can never grow more round as a student, athlete, or character without taking shots in life. As a student, I was always great at academic level classes by earning and receiving high grades. Until I was recommended for Dual Enrollment United States history, I had never understood how much extra work I had to put in to be successful and grow in that college level class. I had a test coming up on The American Revolution, I studied three hours to earn my first 100% on a college test.
