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. He often finds himself putting his needs second to others who are also in need of help.
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
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.
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?
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.
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.
In short, Ayn Rand taught me how to move forward. Since I have read Atlas Shrugged, I have been through a lifetime more of conflict. Yet unlike before, I didn’t shatter. It wasn’t easy, by any means.
I truly felt like my teachers cared and valued my opinion when I interacted with the class and this became just one of the factors that made me follow the decision to become more
I feel as though many middle school students can relate to this, because during this time students are trying to fit in and figuring out their friend group etc. and there are many instances of bullying during these hard/awkward years. Having a friend group that accepts your differences and positively influences you to be yourself is so important and that’s what I loved most about the Gang of Five. I also appreciated how this book discussed the topic of name-calling, especially Joe’s story of his peers calling him names because he is gay.
It has also taught me what styles I don’t like and the importance of really planning my essays to make sure I get my point across. Some of the people Alex met didn’t give her exactly what she needed but it was enough to figure things out. That’s just like the four discovering genre essays we had to do. Some of them were very challenging and I didn’t get the exact grade I wanted, but I learned from my mistakes.
In the articles that I read from the book "Somebody told me" by Rick Bragg, the characters faced many different issues. Some of the issues were significant while others weren't as important but all of the issues were important. All three articles had three types of issues the people were facing. In the articles, the individuals faced struggles because of the type of people they were, because of the need to provide for their family, and because of loss of a family member.
