Going through the APPIC process and defending my dissertation proposal, I have grown more than any other year attending UNCO. I sought assistance with my APPIC application and dissertation. I learned faculty are great resources for feedback and support during this process. I also polished my curriculum vita and learned the competitive nature of APPIC internships. Personally, I learned my stress limiting by writing my dissertation proposal and applying for APPIC internships within a three month time span.
As a student, there are times that I face challenges or problems. All these challenges become an experience in my life in which I strive to learn from as a student.

The way I prepared myself for this book was on every page I had at least about three sticky notes stating the important facts and at the end of the chapter I had a one sentence summary stating the main idea opic of that chapter. This method I have found out has helped me the most it helps me remember certain things better due to my short-term memory loss. For my writing method, I tend to make outlines so I don’t get off topic. Both of my reading and writing method I have discovered for myself throughout my school years has helped me learn better and just in generally better myself academic wise.

He becomes a scholarship boy. In Chapter 2 The Achievement of Desire (Rodriguez 43 – 73) he explains he feels like a scholarship boy “I was a certain kind of scholarship boy, a very good student, but also a bad one. Always successful, always unconfident.” Rodriguez explains the different difficulties balancing life at home with family, and the academic world at school.

His doubts of my seriousness student were palpable, and there due to my minimal oral participation in the class. Though I understood where he was coming from, I saw myself as more of a reticent but engaged student, completely capable of wrestling with a course like AP US. He agreed to let me take the entrance test after weeks of constant inquiry. After a month of waiting I received an email say that I had been accepted into the class. When I ecstatically approached him the next day and questioned him about the test, he said that I was ready for a class of a higher level and that mine was one of the best essays overall.

It’s made me more compassionate towards those around me. I have been tutoring at my school for three years and find it to be very rewarding. I will continue to “pay it forward” by tutoring in college. I have learned from my own struggling that many things can affect learning and comprehension.
The student that I chose to work with has 3 goals that I am monitoring. Each goal has 2 parts, so in reality, I am monitoring 6 things with his goals.

He also has learned that grace must come to an end at some point, and that
I perform well on my classwork, tests, and quizzes. My work ethic and study habits are strong. Quizlet, flashcards, and notes are all study tools I use. I have been on Honor Roll for each year at Jack Jouett Middle School and get all A 's. When confused about a concept, I always ask for help early so I understand it before the unit becomes further difficult.
During "Waves of Change" I learned how to revise my work, more importantly, that uncertainty during the writing process is normal, and revise my thinking. Writing scared me in high school. The idea of writing a 10 page research paper, or a 6 page opinion essay terrified me. My fear of writing was created by the success I achieved in other subjects in school. Throughout my adolescence, I became accustomed to
