The movie Lean On Me related a lot to things we talked about in class this semester. The first situation was when the head of the district came to Joe and tells him he is nothing and tears him down and that he would not be able to fix the troubled high school. By the head guy doing this to Joe it motivated him to take this as a challenge and created a need for achievement. This is talked about in the motivation chapter, chapter 12. I believe this was the best method of motivating Joe since the high school had so many problems and had so much to be done to turn it around and have the majority pass the basic skills test.
My second rewarding school experience was in high school senior year. I chose my senior experience because I had to fix what I had done my earlier years of high school. I had to retake some classes and sacrifice my time and my teacher 's were willing to do the same to get me to pass. My teacher 's noticed my main struggles were in math and English and we made a plan of success to help me get on the path to graduate. This year is important because of two reasons reason one was it was my senior year and the second reason was that my school was closing down and there wasn 't going to be any summer courses to take to make up the classes.
With the rising difficulties in common core standards many teachers are forced to place increasing effort on mathematics and english. This means that programs such as science and art are cut out of many lesson plans. I realized how influential science programs are for elementary students and so, with my club STEM Leaders of Tomorrow, created STEM Day at J.H. Gunn Elementary School. Students who wouldn’t normally get an opportunity to hear presentations were given exclusive one-on-one time to engage in activities that will shape them for the rest of their lives.
In eighth grade, I was known to be an overachiever. I would tried to win in any competition. First, it was academic. Getting on the honor roll or effort roll list was everyone 's dream at my school. There was bragging rights to be listed on the honor roll list because you had to get A’s and B’s, which was a very difficult task at my elementary school.
After the test, I know that I have to try harder if I want to go to college. My mom always told me that ““Everyone makes mistakes and we all learn something about our mistake.” I tried to learn more vocabulary and look for the way to improve my English skills. I push myself to study more and more. Day by day I kept thinking “why do I want to come back school.” I used to hate school so much, but since I move to U.S, I know that education is the only way can help me have a better life, good career, and make my dream come true. I moved to the United States when I was 19 years old.
I want to go back to become more school orientated and take on more challenges, such as taking harder classes. During my freshman year, I specifically remember my English teacher telling me that I had such great potential and that I could’ve been in her pre-ap class. If I had the chance to go back and take it, I would’ve. I wish I would do my high school year all over again; to change my ways of always slacking off. Even if my grades are considered decent, I know I can do better.
In one of the essays I read in our book, the author explained how students have always been assigned into groups, and how that is not a good solution. When we are assigned to a group lower than the average for our grade, this defeats us. This makes us believe that we are not smart enough, because we are not learning fast enough. When we are younger, students can be held back a grade to help them improve. When we get into college, we are required to take state tests to determine where we are placed.
By saying ` With students feeling increased pressure to succeed and little obligation to turn in their peers, honor codes have fallen out of step with values of the modern college student. Today, earning an “A” is a greater motivator than being deemed “honorable.” the author is generalizing students with not clear datas, most of her arguments about students and honor codes nowadays are based upon her opinions and not based on a clear datas Morton starts her speech by welcoming the new students. She also tells them about how passionate she is about her job, and how she prepared herself to talk about honor codes. The author tell her audience that she has a college student. She explains to them on how she tried to talk about honor codes with her and how her daughter rejected the topic every time.
This semester I signed up for college speech, college algebra, and A&S along with my high school classes. In the begging, I felt really confident in my ability to balance my life, work, and school but I quickly learned It was going to be harder than I thought. I think it was around chapter 2 when I decided I needed to buy a planner so I could start writing down things I needed to accomplish. This class has tough me that creating goals and staying organized is key when taking college classes and later on in life. My favorite class period was the last day of class.
I don’t know what it’s going to be like until we start reading more about it.” When the new changes are mentioned to seniors who have taken the SAT before it was changed, there are mixed opinions. Senior Susan Gonzalez supported these new changes, saying that “the SAT needs to become more relevant to the way students are being taught and how they are learning.” Senior Denise Garcia, however, remains neutral on the topic. “I don’t know if this is the change I expected. Beyond ignoring the sciences and arts, the format has been
If the teacher speaks every time, students won’t learn anything because we are telling them how to solve and work on the word problem. If the students work and we assist them through question, they will understand how to solve the problem. In my first year of teaching, I was talking and giving students everything they needed to know. In this new school year, I will take my students and use the real world activities. For example: Let the students walk around and use the materials to measure the things they see in their campus.
