As this will save me time from panicking and not include the important sources of information. I didn't use a check list at the start, if I made a check list difference would be showing. I must always try something new and knowing that i could develop a strong skill, rather than just doing the same old thing. An example of this when I am given an essay i must start planning the key points straight away and plan which days i am going to focus on the key topic and committing to it. (Cottrell,S,(2013), She quotes that students always find too to proper themselves properly.
I’ve grown as a student of English this term. I worked on several things including my weaknesses, what i struggle with on a daily basis and even my strengths. Doing this has helped me become a better reader, writer, thinker and a better person. I’ve also use the resources available, like going to tutoring and asking for help when i still feel stuck on something. Going for help is much better than trying to figure out for myself what i needed to work on.
I now have a strong respect for the time I have to get my work done. Time management is often hard to grasp however, I have learned how to set goals for myself to stay on track. I often get frustrated when I mix-up of certain letters and I still have to re-read most texts or articles to grasp the concepts, but I am lucky that with the help I gained at St. John I was able to mostly outgrow the issue. Getting into the University of California Davis or any other UC seemed as if an unattainable dream, but my hard work throughout high school to get good grades and improve my test scores, culminated to an end up at a high level academic University. I believe this literacy I gained is functional due to the education system I grew up in.
It changed my attitudes drastically, from negative to positive thoughts. Seeing them persevere made me want to succeed and in doing so I had to start reading and writing. This was an issue due to the language barrier but as time progressed I started to enjoy reading and writing. I would always read for an hour after I was done with my homework. This was a small step for what is to come as I face the unknown world of
When I attended the region 2 meeting I learned tons of new things. I learned we needed to make goals in life or we won’t accomplish much and life is long, but goes by fast, so we need to make the most of it. There I got to learn about FCCLA, meet new people, learn new things, and even get out of school for the day.
My objective of following this course is to improve and develop my teaching knowledge. At the beginning of the Module one there was a distinct challenge. Time management has been at the root of that challenge (Appendix H). When I read time management skills in Unit’s reading, I realized that my time management skills are quite lacking as I want to do more than one tasks as a time. Initially, few weeks later my time management was under control (Appendix I).
But I don't seem to have much time for that. I wish I could take some time to really invest in areas of my life that I actually have minimal interest and explore them, to than choose what I really want to do for my life, what I really am good at, what I feel pleasure waking up every single day and doing it. It is a very difficult goal, a least for me, because I don't have any interest for the majority of the things I have to do. It will help me now only now but in the decisions I take for the rest of my
I currently do not know how to deal with long tern change in a world that is consistently changing at a rapid rate. While reading, Critical Thinking: Tools for Taking Charge of Your Professional and Personal Life, I have learned that my thinking is considered to be on a level of short term thinking. In fact, I recognize that my thinking is common, and conditioned for moderate quality within individuals- The human brain is capable of doing more than most individuals realize. Short term thinking only process quick fix solutions, that does not require critical thinking (Paul, Elder, 2012, p.5). I am now realizing that I made irrational decision because I did not fully understand critical
I also planned to read a lot and spending more time in composing my essays by going through multiple drafts. Unfortunately, I didn 't followed out my initial plan as much I wanted to. I believe my plan is realistic, however the real problem is that I 'm lack of motivation. I know why I should work hard for my classes but I often find it difficult for me to motivate
Although I feel that my speech had a strong structure, I do feel that my slides and I could have done more to make the presentation better. I think that I did not present enough information with slides or press the importance of the ones I did use enough. I also feel that I sped through my presentation too fast and should have tried harder to slow down so that my audience could follow along easier. I also had trouble with remembering what it is I needed to say once I stepped in front of the class, even after many practices rounds with my roommate and study group. This caused me to frequently look at my note cards, taking away from my eye contact and physical gestures.
This has been a challenging year for me as I am just now starting to learn the duties of a Paralegal and I haven 't quite figured out how to adjust my mindset from thinking as an Assistant to thinking as a Paralegal. This will be an ongoing goal for me as I am aware that I now need to be more proactive instead of reactive. I will work on how I can assist the team with technology and making it easier for the team to complete their work. In anticipation of the move I am assisting the team with packing and indexing items to ship to Iron Mountain as well as learning easier ways to eliminate paper using OneNote and volunteering as a Move Ambassador to help the team transition to the new work
My short term goal for this week and the week coming forward is to continue to use my time wisely to study for the last few test that we will have. I have progressed a lot this month with getting my grade up. In the beginning of the month I can honestly say I did not use my time like I should have. I did not fully read the chapters I was given, and my grade showed. The second quiz my grade went up a little more, and during that time I did take the time to read some, but not all chapters.
