My interaction with others has always been on the positive side. I show respect for classmates and students. The reason I feel
Throughout the term there has been many writing assignments —big or small— that helped reflect my writing process or the process itself. In the beginning of the course I felt like I was an “ok” writer, but lacked some skills such as: organization, sentence variety, and vocabulary. Also, I did not like to write and had a feeling of dislike when forced to write. I felt like I improved on everything I wanted and was seen throughout the semester. I know how to organize my ideas, the worksheets given in class to work on sentence variety really helped, and vocabulary was built on some level.
Throughout my life I have seen how this skill helped me in handling adversity and coping with personal tragedy. After the incident I was fearful, but found solace in my schoolwork, with school acting as the one place where I felt safe. My hard work translated into a strong academic performance. While to many of my classmates schoolwork felt like a chore, to me it was a reprieve from the stresses of my dangerous new home environment. But as I began to finally feel comfortable another issue came up.
If class work was to callous I’d complain to my case manager. I’d tell her that I didn’t have enough time or that I have lots other work to do, so she would get me out of any work that I dint want to do. My case manger got me lots of extensions on projects, homework, and test. But I didn’t take advantage of any of it. My grades were dropping faster than ever, and so was my self-esteem.
I lost both of the debates I was in during that class, so would say my public speaking could use some improvement in these years of college ahead of me. Not only does it need improvement, I personly would like to see it improve. Over the last year, I have decided I want to take a role that involves a lot of leadership and the qualities that go with leadership. One of the biggest parts of leadership in my eyes is public speaking and the ability to convey my thoughts well in front of people. So I would certainly say I am excited by the prospect of public
Along with explaining my situation to them, they were not very understanding, or give the ideas to care/make compromises with me. Quickly, I realized that online classes weren’t the right fit for me. This realization was due to the lack of communication/very delayed communication as well as the lack of help when I asked for it. Considering the frustration and stress of trying to complete my online and in seat assignments, my responsibilities to my family; when session two began I was overwhelmed with tasks and responsibility. Just before session two classes began was when my grandfather was told that he needed to start his three week radiation treatment process.
Throughout these volunteer sessions I had to demonstrate patience and flexibility based on the student I was assisting that day. Some days my student despised reading and had no focus and other days my student could not pronounce over half the words on the page or comprehend their meaning. I am very thankful I did this kind of volunteering because it allowed me to shape into a more patient and understanding person. Overall, I believe I epitomize what leadership stands for through my dependability and integrity in extracurricular roles, industriousness and human compassion while planning events for my current high school, and character through volunteering. A goal I have is further better myself in any way possible as a leader.
Working with special needs children makes my day better and brings joy to me. Many people have told me the past years not to go into education because they do not get paid enough, so I was second guessing myself. But, being at Highland Pines made me realize that it is not about the money it is about doing something that makes you happy and teaching is the thing that makes me happy. The only recommendation I would make it to try and get the BIST program known more. I had no idea about it until a teacher told me about it.
Coming to Ashesi, I believe I haven’t been that much of a servant leader because like High School, I’ve kept to myself most often and this has prevented me from looking beyond myself in order to address the needs of others. However, the little we have studied in the course so far has opened my eyes to see servant leaders in action and how their work has benefited those around them. It has stirred up some kind of desire in me to improve the lives of the people in my community and this is outlined in the story I hope to be a reality by the time I am a hundred years old. My name is Zaneta Asare and this is my autobiography at age 100.
"Depending on the level of interaction in the classroom setting, shy students may be allowed to attend classes without providing alternative ways to communicate ideas". I say this because it only makes it harder if the student is shy. An example of this situation could be he or she could have a question, but thinks dumb so they won 't ask. I have done this several times myself. Or also scared the class would laugh at the question.
Roles like timekeeper, table leaders, and recorders. These jobs kept the students on task throughout the entire process and also made them more involved in the learning process. He also created a very positive learning environment by creating little phrases as a class. This is a fun way to have a bond with the students so that they can be involved with the learning process and also know when to move from one activity to the next. He also makes sure his students understand the directions by simply having them
Do you think because I missed some of your lecture on chapter 4 I will be completely lost, or will studying the power points in conjunction with the chapter and learnsmart be enough? I had an issues accessing learnsmart at first, but have found it extremely beneficial in my test preparations. I wish the issue were resolved before the first test; it really gives me a lot of confidence in my absorption of the information. Sorry for the long-winded email. I realize this is a college course, which means lots of independent study and figuring things out on your own.
My semester here at USC has been a smooth transition however I have overcame challenges. Being an only child I 've become comfortable with doing things on my own and not being open to working with others. Not realizing this would hinder my way of learning I was not always one to study in groups but deciding to try it out this semester proved to produce tremendous outcomes! Through my first semester here at USC I found that I benefit more from studying in groups and that I retain the information a lot better than if I were to study alone. This semester, I 've also had to come to terms with the reality of the college work load.
The only way I think my experience could have been improved was if we were able to go out in the field more towards the end of the semester. In the beginning case managers took interns with them in the field quite often, but towards the end they stopped asking us to go. Being a hands-on learner, it is hard for me to learn by just doing the same repetitive stuff in the office so I would have much rather been out in the field more than in the office. I would recommend DFCS as an excellent place to intern.
For example, the ALP was tough at first but during all the journals, the freewrites, and the essays were really were not so bad and they were easier because I paid attention to my professor on writing better and to make my emotions on paper,. To summarize how Brookdale was a good choice for me was I met good people, the courses, less money to spend, has a great hands on learning experience, and getting good grades. For all the new students in the ALP, learn and enjoy being in that program because that program really helped me learn two English courses in one semester so that
