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.
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
I can also read other text and come up with ideas from that. For using a bigger vocabulary I can learn new words and I can also find synonyms for words I already know and make them sound better. The interview question essay was a good strategy of learning more about character and details about their life and how you can add more detail. My goals will help me become a stronger reader and writer in language arts. They will also help me improve on my weaknesses and become better on my strengths.
This Writing and Rhetoric I course has transformed my writing style greatly. Through this course I’ve learned to analyze and synthesize my ideas in a better way. At first, I was quite reluctant about my writing and would often think that I was not doing a good job. However, Professor Karl and this course have lead me to the right steps that I need to follow in order to become a better writer. Subsequently, the first essay I had to write about was using Mark Edmundson’s Pay Attention!
Likewise, creating a cover letter taught me many useful strategies that I will definitely put to use when it comes time for me to submit an official cover letter to a company. One of the biggest things that I have learned from taking this course is that good content is more important than sophistication. Both are very important in essay writing, but it is more important to have clear content and material so that the audience can understand your position. Last year, I always seemed to lose points on essays for not having sophisticated enough prose, so I came into this class under the impression that the most important things in a
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.
Reflection on Medication Administration Description (Competency 3j) I have looked over my moral development regarding medicine administration and have noticed there is the need for improved and has been agreed with my mentor to write a piece of reflection to identify areas of concern Feelings One of the major concern is the pace of dispensing and the time spent used to open charts and allocate them is one of my weakness. Although I am learner I need to back up the pace of dispensing so that patient doesn 't feel my skills is dull or boring and waste of time. I Had developed that feeling of being extra careful to avoid drug error and that makes me feel slightly nervous more also being under the influence of supervision as well. Evaluation
The success of the course is attributed to Howard Schultz 's book, “Pour Your Heart Into It.” This paper explains different lessons that I have learned throughout the course. Currently, I am better knowledge-wise than I was before undertaking this course especially the Grantham experience. One aspect that I have learned is how people behave around the world. Human beings tend to have a natural fear of failure (Rippin, 2015). They often do not want to be seen as being unsuccessful in their undertakings or life in general.
When I signed up for this class I was a little tentative at first, I have never taken an online class before and this semester I am taking two. I am used to going to class two or three times a week and interacting with my classmates in a room along with getting assigned work each time. The past couple days has taken me a bit of time getting used to the format and planning when I need to work on this class. However, I found that once I got adjusted I have been doing quite well with keeping up on the work. Often times I needed to read several paragraphs a few more times to get a full understanding of what the author was stating.
Learning to make a specific plan for my daily tasks and make a to-do list to make my day as productive as possible is something very helpful which was advised to me by the instructor of this lecture Mr. Irfan. What I mean by specific is that it is time-specific and nature-specific. In addition, I have always heard of the term SMART but I did not give it my attention because I thought it would be just like many other useless methods of time management. However, the way this lecture illustrated this term or method is very unique and has helped me in implementing this method in my daily life. For instance, a goal should be time-based, for years I used to set goals or tasks and never put a deadline or timeframe, so I keep procrastinating until I lose track of time and eventually finishing the task in as imperfect way or not finishing it at all.
I always start out with higher order concerns in their comments (after providing some positive feedback) before moving into lower order concerns, if that is necessary. I also do use the terminology of higher order concerns (focus, development, organization are the most frequent). Mostly for the papers that are really struggling or failing, I tend to move away from lower order concerns and focus on helping them with the bigger concerns. However, if there is a serious issue with lower order concerns, I usually include that in the end with a note that reminds them that while this doesn’t have a huge impact on their grade, it is still important information for them to keep in mind while writing. The tone in both the A paper versus the R paper is the same.
In the first draft the author jumps right to the thesis statement and the publisher’s purpose. He does not have a clear introduction because it was missing an attention getter. The author started talking what the essay was going to be about, and for me it was just like the author didn’t want to spend more time working on the introduction. The author had some problems with sentence structure, moreover, I think that the author wanted to be more specific about what he/she was talking about that sometimes he/she confused himself. For example when the author was talking about the audience, the author said: “Having his article published in an online news source, Inside Higher Ed, allows for Jaschik to have an audience of first year English..”, for me he/she could had gone to something more simple like: “Jaschik had his article published in Inside Higher Ed, which allowed him to have an audience the fitted audience for this article...” When the author was talking about the rhetorical choices, he/she could use more examples because it seemed the author just wanted to be very brief, and not specific.
When my group turned the project in, and it was shown to the class my teacher rewrote the assignment according to what we did and used it as an example of great work when recruiting new people. As proud as I was in this project I knew I couldn’t stop there and continued to seek out opportunities to better myself and the environment around me. Some of the favorite things I have done include attending a cyber forensics seminar and obtaining an award in a coding event for best educational game. The reason I choose Embry-Riddle as opposed to
I probably spent 216 hour attempting to write this paper. I defiantly had plenty of time to finish the drift and the revised version. With as much time I 've had I feel that I didn 't fulfill all that the paper needs and what it was asking for. Definitely for a note to self, I should have seek out for more help from peers and staff of Century College. Tara was a huge help with showing me how at fix my work cited and what I was doing wrong on the They Say I Say templates.
That has been my weakness coming into this class, but through practice and repetition, it has transformed my writings into being great pieces. I would also recommend, working on your public speaking skills as this class bread and butter is discussions, the part I like most. I would definitely tell you not to be afraid to speak during the classroom discussions. The assignment I would say challenged me the most is an essay we had to do on Pat Buchanan’s short essay “Deconstructing America”. The assignment was to deconstruct his essay ‘no pun intended’ and figure out whether it was effective or not and why.
