I have learned a lot about myself as a reader and a writer. When I first began class, I tried to read the DRP test. I had forgotten everything about college vocabulary that was on the test since I left the university in 2013. I had not read any books in a few months until teacher recommend for me to take fifteen minutes to read
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.
Math 105, is pretty much what I expected in the beginning. I thought that at about midterms I’d be challenged and have some struggles to get through the rest of the class. This is exactly what happened, but I came with a positive attitude and believe I will learn what is necessary to make this a successful course in my education. The most useful success strategy I implemented in week 1 of the college algebra course is to stay determined.
Kyle Kling 14 October 2014 English 100-24 Professor Hall Academics to Six Flags Commitment and hard work can pay off for you in school in many ways. Those two things for me brought me to Six Flags Great America for a class field trip. In order for the students to go on the field trip they had to earn a 3.0 GPA or better. For me, this was really hard to accomplish because I was only an average student back then.
The National Honors Society has been a constant but distant presence in my life ever since I was in middle school. Every once in awhile, teachers would mention our GPAs and tell us to keep them up if we wanted to be accepted into NHS, or they would attempt to coax us into behaving better by telling us that the National Honors Society frowned upon our current behavior. Back then, NHS was a prospective part of my future, and I didn’t worry too much about preparing. In my first two years of high school, I watched my fellow students in NHS work to keep up their grades up and to meet the volunteer requirements. I watched them and waited my turn to join them, because after learning what the National Honors Society really was and what it stood for,
Through repetition, we can slowly replace our bad habits with good ones. No matter if you’re a college or university student pushing through your final semester, or if you’re the parent of a fourth grader who is struggling to prepare for weekly spelling tests - we have some tricks
The two electives I advise you to choose are either a T.A. (teacher’s assistant) or Spanish. When selecting an elective, you usually want to pick something fun, something that you’d look forward to almost every day. As a previous T.A., I would look forward to the period after lunch (my elective period) just to have an hour of letting my mind rest. If it were an easy day, I would work on homework from another class, read a book, or
McCarthy to inspire students to strive for excellence in whatever we do. I also suggest we have a mini field trip to a museum or a library so other students could pick out books to read and write essays on to improve their writing. Another piece of advice for future classes is to have those classes even though they pass the diagnostic essay to go over briefly the writing process as well as have them go over 20 common errors and helpful hints like we had this year those two handouts really helped improved my essays little by little. The writing class is already amazing with or without my advice, I hope I can come back and put my input one day into Dr. PHP class and become one of her many teaching assistants. I also want to try my hand at teaching her class, even though I have stage fright and I start to stutter when I am in front of people
This year in Humanities my confidence in sharing my opinion with the class dramatically increased due to the great work environment you provided. Going into this semester being my first year in college I was not planning on speaking up and giving my opinion in class. I had been a to myself person throughout high school and to some extent I still am but what i've learned is when I ask questions and give my opinion not only does it help me but it also gives the rest of the class a different perspective. Now with my new perspective as a student I believe it's my job in a way to bring up points because there's a good chance someone else in the class has a similar question and if I remain silent as well as my classmates we are only hurting ourselves. As a class I believe that we had very good attendance, personally I didn't miss a class.
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.
My teacher said, "that I 'll give her a test about topics we learned throughout the term, and she can make up the things she missed, that she never made up. What a relief? I said to myself. My ELL teacher knew what I had to do about my grades, so she helped me out too. I came after school, early morning, and anytime I was free to prepare for the test.
Finally, my journey through Alvin High School is coming to an end. I am definitely satisfied that I got to spend my last semester with Ms. Loye! From advice to funny stories to actual learning, I will forever remember this amazing class. I will certainly need some of the skills and advice that I have learned in English 1302.
I always turned in homework, though. So when she sat us down in the hall at the end of the year to discuss our EOG scores and what she thought we should try to improve upon in the coming years. She struggled to find a reason why all year I struggled to keep up my grade but scored a near perfect on my EOG. Her excuse was homework.
Being a candidate for the National Honor Society is a tremendous honor for me. Since I began high school, it has been a goal of mine to be a part of this amazing organization. Being involved in my school and community has always been important to me, and any chance I get to further my involvement is great. I believe that NHS is the perfect opportunity for me to serve others and help better our community. I understand that a member of NHS shows qualities of scholarship, leadership, service, and character.
Over the past year, I excelled in AP math, specifically AP Calculus. It had become such an ease for me that I found myself teaching others the material in the span of twenty minutes while my teacher went over it in the span of two days. This past summer, I was fortunate enough to review my friend’s college work abstract for college-level math. It was there that I realized I have so much more math to learn. I was perusing that long paper for grammar help, but it was me who received the help.
