The biggest headaches I get are from those students who have no training and no experience—yet they’re certain they have a divine gift or instinct for executive protection. These students are trainable, but they might have to repeat the class after some field experience to really understand what is new and different about this discipline. Repeating my classes is always free, and some lessons are much more real to students the second time around. I have a great track record with the quality of students who have come through my school. Nearly all are motivated to help others.
I might not have spoken up, but in the Public Speaking class taught by Kelly Nickel, we were asked to alert our listeners of any speech topic that might traumatize our classmates so as to give them an option as to whether to stay and listen. It was a concept which I had not thought of before, but I greatly appreciated the reason behind it. Once again, thank you
With the invitation to education most students wouldn’t achieve as high of a standard they are capable of. I believe this is a major part in education. Most teachers know the educational abilities of every student, but when they see that an individual isn’t reaching that mark they push them to do better for the benefit of the student. In both of these stories the teachers believed that the student could do better, and they tried their best to show the student what their capabilities are. One of the hardest parts in education for the students is to get the invitation from their teachers.
She was really angry at her parents which shows that moving can be hard. I was kind of ready because I have moved a lot. Making Text to World connections can also show that some events in the book can be linked to things happening in the real world. Another example of this would be when the five main characters transitioned from elementary school to high school and had to make new friends. Stella felt very angry for having to start high school in a different city where she had no friends.
After this class I really plan on to continue working on my listening skills. I believe that listening is a very big part in our culture and being able to pay attention to what they have to say will only help me out in the long run. This goal is important to me because I want to be the best at what I do and not listening will not get me anywhere and I have the motivation to do my best at everything, and being a competent listener is one of those things on my list. My last goal is to become very knowledgeable in my studies so when I am able to get a job I will be able to communicate with the people in my field. I think that if I am above others at communicating in my field and comprehending everything that they say and or ask that I will be a high valued asset in their company/ business.
Then we had to do a poster with a photo of us and the position we are running for. Lastly, we had to make a speech and it was my first time public reading. I was so nervous but I had a feeling I might win this, but sadly I wasn't elected. I was sad and I thought to myself that some things weren't meant to be. This was my first attempt to be in Student council and
When students first come to college it is very exciting, but soon they realize that college is a difficult task to withstand. For example, in the article "The Three Biggest College Campuses Problems," for four-year students were asked to choose three out of twenty-one of the biggest problems on campus and the three biggest problems were the cost of education, stress, and alcohol abuse (Jacobs). I strongly agree with these three problems because as a first-year student I have experienced these three problems within the first week of school. Therefore, I don’t agree with what the article college expenses not increasing each year you attend. I realized when I entered college how quickly these three effects took a detriment on my performance.
The first semester I had three challenges. My class had to do a true story oral presentation of what we did during the summer.When It was my turn to do my presentation I go up because I didn 't finish writing it and I was nervous to go up there. The second challenge that I had to write an essay about three short stories ' couldn 't find a ways to start it and It took forever to finish it. My third challenge was reading the book To Kill a Mockingbird. It was a challenge for me because I had final exams and I didn 't have any time to read the book.
One of the most significant events in my life was when I had to get surgery on my back, right on top of my tailbone. Having surgery has affected every part of my life, and even though it happened over three years ago, it still has an impact on me. During the Thanksgiving Break of my freshman year of High School was when I found out what was happening to me, I was at a family dinner with a horrible pain on my back. Going through the actual process of getting ready for the surgery was long and complicated, especially since I had to wait till the school year ended because I would have missed over three months of school. After the actual surgery I was in bed all day and was unable to get up except for doctor appointments.
Roughly three years ago all of my fellow EC14 peers received a letter that changed how we would view school for the next three years. Unfortunately, that letter was not delivered by a magical owl informing us of our acceptance into Hogwarts. Close, but not quite. Even so, the simple letter was not so little. This letter was the metaphorical door into a world we never knew existed, as cheesy as that sounds.
Martinez immediate took an initiative to learn and perform her HCM responsibilities. She willingly complied with oral and written work instructions and observed organizational programs, polices, and procedures. In addition, she set priorities to complete assignments and meet deadlines. Her desk and work materials were well organized and neat. She reported to work on time and adhered to the departmental attendance standards.
When we arrived at the doctors he started asking me many question about my day to day life. When he finally stooped asking so many questions he diagnosed me with having ADD. He told me that the abbreviation stood for Attention Deficit Disorder, then he explained to me that having this disorder meant that I wouldn’t be able to focus as efficiently as anyone who doesn’t have this disorder. After he was done explaining to me about ADD my creative 3rd grade mind began to think about this new found challenge in my life. I began thinking that no matter how hard I tried or how hard I worked that anybody who didn’t have ADD could get any job they applied for while I would be overlooked just because of my disorder.
The article, “Never Say Anything a Kid Can Say,” by Steven C. Reinhart that was published in 2000 was quite an interesting read. Throughout this article, the author explained a teaching technique that he thought was the most effective for students to learn the most. He explained that it was a process; it wasn’t a technique that could be implemented and accomplished within a few days. The main idea of this philosophy was to have the students do the explaining and the teacher do the listening, which is completely opposite of the normal classroom setting. Reinhart explained that through a normal teaching method, the teacher presents information to the class through explanations and some demonstrations.
As assessments scores are recorded, I will know whether the lessons are on the right level or whether I teach all the topics effectively. I will also learn what areas students need to work on, which points need reviewing and whether I should spend more or less time on this material with the next course students. It is also important because I will have an evidence of students’ learning journey. It is required by funding body to regularly inform about students’ progress. The class profile form will show if the students achieve the outcomes and goals.
Many students in this day of age do not understand the concept of having an “open mind.” Minorities nowadays want everything right then and there. Due to the advances in technology and parenting in present time, many learn throughout all aspects of life to have a one way mind. I am one who can relate to what Carol S. Dweck writes about in her research article, “Brainology: Transforming Students’ Motivation to Learn,” and that having a fixed mindset is an extreme setback, whereas having a growth mindset, potential is realized and often accomplished. She explains further into her article those who have a growth mindset have a very straightforward idea of effort compared to those with a fixed feel that working hard is a downfall. The two mindsets are exact opposite and having a growth furthers a person’s success rate later in life compared to a fixed mindset.
