If you have classmates who respect, listen, and lend their helping hand to each other, then you will most likely have a great classroom environment and experience in that class. On the contrary if you have disruptive students who don’t cooperate with one another, this will lead to a dysfunctional classroom experience. The book Twisted has characters who fit into both of those roles. One character who I would consider an ideal classmate would be Tyler’s best friend Calvin, also known as Yoda. Yoda cares for people other than himself and always lends a helping hand.
I chose this writing assignment because I did not successfully address the prompt, and I feel like it is important I understand what really was being asked for this assignment. At first I was really overwhelmed because it was the first assignment and the process was confusing to me somehow at that time. When it came to rewriting, I re-read the prompt, notes, process done, and comments to see where I did not follow the process. I went back to change my arguments more into how this affects the audience. For strengths, my evidence is still strong, but as a weakness I still not a hundred percent sure it flows well.
Not just the template explanations but actual instructor approved write ups of the assignment. Preferably selected from former students who showed exemplar understanding of content so that learners can have examples on their current level to help with the assignments. Discussions Discussions may need to be altered to incorporate the new information being provided. Not so much how you would use the information provided, but why and would it fit into your particular project. The discussion summary may also contain reminders of the examples and expectations from the assignments which is something easily
Agreeing to Schuman you ought to connect a gathering venture where, indeed, a few people from the gathering are more brilliant than others. However, where the achievements of the whole class matter more than the individual. Schuman shares her personal experience of teaching and dealing with different kinds of students in hope that her intended audience will learn a lesson of the importance of class participation. Her views are very instructive, truthful, and encouraging to all college students. The article was elegantly well written by Schuman, who directed college student how to take part in the course and benefit from it.
Outliers “The Story of Success” has opened my mind to certain things that were still unclear in my head. Like how just acting different in a similar situation can prevent a tragedy or stuff from happening. What we as human beings are capable of doing with so little effort and what we can do with so much more. The book inspired me. Right now I have goals, goals that I sometime doubt that I can achieve.
I find the class material to make me think about my relationships with others and it helps me to be better at understanding them. I have come to realize that I have a better chance at understanding people if I look at them as similar and different to myself. This course has also helped me to realize that we all make different meaning out of things and that has helped me to understand that people may not understand information I am communicating to them the way I intended. How does all this relate to your work as a counselor? Overall, this task has helped me to understand that it would be hard to be openly gay, even if it’s just for a day.
Now, five weeks into this class, I understand that this type of writing requires more thought and effort because it employs a different approach. Searching for meaning behind the repetition and patterns of another writer’s work is difficult. The process requires imagination and the ability to put yourself in another person’s frame of mind. Since I am a rather concrete thinker, unraveling a writer’s implications is not my strongest attribute.
The storyteller also adds mystery to the book because the reader knows what happened but doesn 't know if it goes deeper than just the surface. There 's more to a story than just the basic plot and by the storyteller hinting at the end result they leave the middle piece
Though, I didn’t learn to read and write in the adventurous way as Fredrick Douglass did, but for to me it was an important learning process. Reading and writing are basic skills that one must have in order to be successful. Just as Fredrick Douglass said that it opens your eyes to the truth of this world and that is both a blessing and a curse, I see it the same
Even though I knew what my story was and how I felt about the situation, I could not come up with a way to properly structure the narrative. To accomplish my personal narrative paper, I started to just scribble down all my ideas and then started to weed out the ones that I could live without. It turned into an outline that took me from start to finish on this assignment. After I had an outline I still did not know where everything should go, in my first draft I structured it more like an argumentative essay. The best advice for that was to not have an introduction paragraph, but that advice was a little too vague.
