With that being said, I understand the reasons for attendence and have the outmost respect for the rules. But as a personal note, I find that some courses can sometimes be less beneficial from being in the class because the professor might have an accent or an argument that confuses me more times than not. Another way I have improved my grades is by utilizing the members at the tutoring center. The goals that I have made for myself throughout the rest of the semester are to utilize my time better as well as to study for my tests and taking care of my priorities first hand. Throughout the past, it was common for me to blow off anything that was a priority or seen as an inconvenience to myself.
Although I feel that my speech had a strong structure, I do feel that my slides and I could have done more to make the presentation better. I think that I did not present enough information with slides or press the importance of the ones I did use enough. I also feel that I sped through my presentation too fast and should have tried harder to slow down so that my audience could follow along easier. I also had trouble with remembering what it is I needed to say once I stepped in front of the class, even after many practices rounds with my roommate and study group. This caused me to frequently look at my note cards, taking away from my eye contact and physical gestures.
I know by setting a goal for myself and planning has also made me grow as a student. My reading and thinking isn 't much of a problem. But i still have a lot of weaknesses i need to focus on, such has actually trying to read an article or sometimes missing key ideas of what i’ve read. My
The most recurrent situation was students talking, so in this case, she usually called students’ attention and asked them to keep silence. When they repeated their behaviour, impeding the continuation of the lesson, she asked students to stand up at the back of the class or she asked them to leave the class. I was not particularly in favour of this measure as students were deprived of the learning opportunities. Finally, with more complicated situations, she turned to give students a warning. These kinds of situations were more recurrent in the two 1st ESO group, where class management was more complicated and students showed a lower level of motivation and interest towards the subject.
To some people it is not. Some teachers say that the book is challenging for students. Now, this novel may be difficult for students, but that is how students learn new information. If students weren’t to have read harder pieces of literature all throughout their schooling career, they would stay at the same level of reading for most of their life. The reason why students should read more challenging novels are because they learn new things, and they could also learn how to act in a certain situation based on the type of challenging story they read.
I was more confident with a smaller group of peers, but was determined to be able to speak confidently in front of a class. Now, this wasn’t like a switch flipping. I felt enormous anxiety when speaking up in class, and I would run over what I planned to say repeatedly, searching for fallacies in my argument, but it eased the worry that clouded my ability to speak. I did learn the importance of communication that day, and a reliance on communication has stuck with me. It was through this that I learned the power of being quiet.
I was able to learn english faster than many people because I worked hard. I was also able to learn the phrases even though I was too afraid of asking what they meant. As you can see, I have faced and overcome the most significant challenges of my life when I came to United
Colege has transferd better work habits directly into my everyday life. College has taught me so much already. Making me more independent also making me do more school work and study more often for quizzes and tests. I like the changes I am seeing for the most pasrt but the work involved is not fun. College has taught me that not everyutyhing will be fun that is good for
Whether the language is learned through a formal, informal or mixed context will influence the outcome of how they use it and perceive it, which is not surprising due to the fact that, as mentioned by Toya & Kodis (1996), Dewaele (2004a; 2005) and Horan (2013), books do not often present students with taboo words, sticking to a more formal language that many times is far from reality and from what people will find in everyday conversations. Mercury (1995) argues in favour of the importance of teaching adult students of English about taboo language – not the words per se, but a more comprehensive view of why people use it and its meaning within a social context. The author says that “it is probable that EFL/ESL speakers often misunderstand and misuse obscene language simply because they are left on their own to learn about its use”
I find that anxiety causes me to stumble and mispronounce my words which only makes it more difficulty to present all that I have planned. However, this time it was different and I finished my presentation with a sense of pride. Although, I know that with practice I will become more confident and proficient in public speaking, I believe my presentation UTIs was the best I have done so far. I have learned the importance of not reading directly from my cards, and also the necessity of making eye contact with the class to ensure they engaged. I was gratified when Lynn noticed that I endeavored to involve the class and help them understand that my subject and its content was important to us all.
Firstly, leaving. Some days it feels like the time we have with our classes just isn’t nearly long enough. Some times, when I’ve been given specific tasks, even though I know that Miss. Giannotti wouldn’t mind letting me finish them up later, I end up feeling rushed because I want to get done what was asked of me. On some days I end up staying over just to spend more time with my class or participate in an activity I would have missed.
Business communication classes struggle with writing as they are unable to translate old skills into a new context. The task of teaching college students how to write doesn 't just lie with English teachers, but with every instructor inside a communication discipline. All these factors combined may make many students feel uncomfortable writing, even some will want to avoid it altogether. This is termed writing apprehension. Mascle suggests, "Therefore, the writer with high writing confidence is more likely to do what is necessary to properly perform the
Some of my strengths I improved upon were hooking my reader into my paper, having enough information, and grammar. In high school teachers didn’t pay much attention to the grammar mistakes that I was making, during the English 101 class I noticed that grammar was being emphasized more, if I didn’t fix my grammar mistakes I would do poorly on all of my papers. In the diagnostic essay my paragraphs didn’t have a good structure. The introduction of my diagnostic essay was lacking because I didn’t mention everything I was going to talk about. At the end of my conclusion I wrote, “All of the weaknesses can be toned down if I just proofread my essays and think to myself if the paper met all the goals I was aiming for”, instead of putting this at the end of my sentence I would have put a solid thesis statement instead.
The examples shared in class often trigger my self-reflection about my work with patients. I could not agree more with the concepts of suffering and power. I often feel that there is a part of me that wanted to help people because it is often easier to offer help than accepting help. Even though I do not agree with the illustration of mindfulness being broad light while meditation is spotlight, I like other illustrations used in the class. Instead of saying mindfulness as broad light, I would say that mindfulness is a sequence of actions that happen in a snap second, it happens so fast that one is not aware of the serial actions.
Coming into the light consists of a Deaf person’s journey towards finding their Deaf identity. As we learned in class, some Deaf people struggle to find their identity due to not knowing the resources available to them or having bad experiences with hearing people. This causes them to have a little d but when they find who they truly are they develop a big D and embrace being Deaf. As for the visual scream, it is when someone makes a visual gesture that seems like they’re making a loud sound but there is no sound with it. This is often seen in silent films or done by Deaf performers to add emotion to their performances.
