This is where I learned the most about myself as both a writer and a reader. Initially, when writing my first draft, I focused on just the most prominent aspects of the article such as how Schulz framed her argument through a story and kept things factually and historically based rather than outwardly asserting her bias. Both subjects became the crux of my analysis, but my original draft lacked the analysis aspect a bit in that I had to dig deeper and provide better examples to support my stance. For example, in my original draft I focused a bit too much on bias and went to the extreme of saying that Schulz kept all bias out of her narrative and kept it completely objective. After further digging into Schulz’s background, and for what publication this article was established under, I had to rephrase this subject to acknowledge the bias but counter-argue why her credentials does not devalue the points she makes in “Citizen Khan.”
This made sense and although it was not good news it helped me to stop worrying about Vella constantly, it gave me peace of mind you could say. The years went by and I realized that it is better to focus on the good moments of my time with Vella. The time gave my brain the time needed to think why am I still in discomfort ? When I already know what happened as well as know that she is not suffering in any way.
Supervisee: Comes prepared for supervision: I always had questions for supervision because I feared to do something wrong so I asked everything no matter small it is. My preparation included being also prepared emotionally and academically which means I always took notes for referencing. This part was so important for me because I did not want any bad look from the supervisor by making her feel like I was not doing what was required of me, I wanted to hold my end of the deal just as
My previous professor was big on self-reflection. So shortly after I typed this essay I had to reflect on what I had done. Each time I have analyzed this paper I have found something new that I should have seen before, and I have learned how to improve from that point. I really don’t like now how passionate I was in my paper. It is hard when you really support something to take a step back and convey your argument clearly.
Before reading this book I never thought about resilience in a different way than in sports. The softball coaches here talk a lot about being resilient in our sport. Softball is a game of failure if you get on base 50% of the time you are considered a great hitter. This word is in my everyday vocabulary, but not in the way the book has used it. I do not think the definition of this word changed for me, but I think the context in which the word is used was different for me.
Verbally Verbal communication has always been a struggle for me; I must admit that I am better at expressing my thoughts and ideas when I write them down on paper. Before attending college, I typically did not think before I spoke and I did not sugar coat my words, which now I realize how this has affected some of my relationships with people and how I had unintentionally hurt people in the past. I find myself still learning and recognizing that this is an area that I anticipate will become more natural to me as I become a more competent nurse. Since this part of communication has been a struggle to me, therapeutic communication was also a struggle when it came to speaking to patients, staff, and taking nursing exams. Through every nursing
At first I will admit I didn’t want to change my style at all, and I thought if I did it may change the way I write at work which could potentially get me in trouble. So far though I have been able to keep the two easily separated which I guess I never realized a person could write in completely different styles before this, and even though that seems pretty obvious now when I think of a few authors. The truth is that writing from facts is safe for me. I can write a report and say the same things as someone openly taking about it and I know I have all the facts covered.
Verbally expressing my papers are what excel in, because it gives me a chance to express what I have written in a broader tone. So that my fellow peers will understand the point that I am trying to convey. Aside from my trials and errors with my writing skills, one thing that has lead me to never giving up is that I know that with practice I will one day be great. I've always had a dream of becoming an author and a dentist. In my book I would explain my journey as an author, and how I was inspired to always keep trying because the sky is the limit.
The last new strategy that I tried was referring back to my readable plan, which helped me immensely when I forgot what strategy I was going to use for a section, or when I found a different strategy to use, it helped to look there to see the other strategies I had already used. My readable plan was also helpful when going back to the sources I had found already and seeing if I wanted to use them still or if I needed to find new
Since it is not always possible to have others read my drafts, better planning allows me to be aware of how the information is conveyed. Rather than hanging on to my first ideas, I embrace the act of drafting and redrafting. Now the
Furthermore, the Peer Advisor community helped demonstrate our concern for our students through our numerous activities that we planned outside of the classroom. The Peer Advisors organized many outings for our students. This time with them allowed us to connect on a more personal basis, and allow us to talk to them about their college transition. Being a Peer Advisor has been so rewarding in that it has allowed me to care and concern for these students as they settle into their journey at
They utilized a group pretest-posttest design in which counselors and trainees tested their competency before the program and after. The specific study used for the training was GLSEN Safe Space: A How-to Guide for Starting an Allies Program. The study found that while
He/she went from something complicated to something more clear and clean. Also, he/she used more examples while he was talking about the rhetorical choices to make himself more understandable and persuasive. However, in his later draft, he still did not use an attention getter, which is something that for me was necessary because writers need to convince the readers that they need to read the essay. Secondly, the author kept the quotation in his conclusion, which as I previously said was not necessary because he already convinced his audience of what Jaschik was arguing about, who he was trying to persuade, and why he was trying to persuade. So, for me the author should still eliminate that
