When I first came into English 1101, I had no confidence in my writing. I didn’t know if I was writing correctly or even forming an essay correctly, also I had trouble with research papers and the process of writing these kinds of essays. I would often feel overwhelmed and embarrassed because I was never taught how to write any essay correctly. I thought to myself, how could I have not known how to write? Writing should have been something so first nature to me, but through the help of Mrs. Hermanson and her positive attitude, eager teach, and nurturing nature, I felt unafraid to make mistakes, I became more confident in my writing and ready take on the world of writing.
As well as, even though the inventory style used in the book made it easy to understand and too follow, Carroll choose to list different topics together making it confusing and boring to read. Overall, I would recommend this book to people who know someone with Alzheimer as it is a care guide and very informative. However, acknowledge there are obvious drawbacks in the
This quote explains how books can be a good source of learning and information. This is important because, it clearly states that books can help us gain wisdom and knowledge, even banned books; and we can read those books as long as we have access to them
With a topic I truly care about I wish I would have done a little more with my paper than I did. Grammatically, I still need a lot of improvement. I write like I would text sometimes, and that is a bad habit that needs to be broken. But just in one semester I can see my improvements though my
The groups of ESO were arranged in individual rows and they were not used to work in groups. In addition, my mentor told me that it was very difficult to manage the ESO groups when planning speaking activities or games because of their disruptive attitude and their lack of interest. The group of Bachillerato, who was arranged in groups, worked better in these kinds of activities because of their English level and a more mature and responsible attitude Yet, students’ intervention was limited to answering or correcting exercises. I had the feeling that they were demanding opportunities for using the language in a more communicative
I see things that i struggle with such as organization, and better connection quotes. Seeing my writing progress lets me see my mistakes after it has been graded. It lets me know the main things i need to focus on. My strengths as a reader is my ability to gather great ideas and fitting them in my own words. I’m good at focusing on the main point when i 'm writing.
Identically, as in the previous justification process, I found reasons to equilibrate my beliefs with the reality. I viewed the course as an interesting, but still quite a tricky one and I also consoled myself that most likely, I could utilize that knowledge in the future. Likewise, I used to share the information I learned with my parents, supposing that it would interest them as well. Thereupon, the process of justifying myself was expanding even
I think that “I Capture the Castle”, by Dodie Smith was a very complicated yet enjoyable story. The novel made me desperately wanting to help each character during their own personal conflects. I would recommend this book to someone who wants to challenge themselves with multiply conflicts. I myself, feel that this book was interesting, but at some points a little dull. If I was the author I would add more description and detail about each unique problem.
The beginning of the year started of rough as we started writing our first essay. I had no idea how I was going to write it at all. I struggled and struggled, but I started to get the hang of it, or well I thought I did when I got the essay back i had mad a 64. I was only one point from passing it which was still a bad grade but like I said I have never been good at writing. Although I was not expecting a good grade, I still wondered what I had done wrong.
She starts off the book by asking a series of questions so the reader can identify with a certain mindset. I thought this was helpful as it allows the reader to determine which mindset they currently have and how they can change or continue to have that mindset. As the author says throughout the book, “you can change your mindset” therefore if you did happen to lean more towards the fixed mindset you could easily change it by focusing towards the growth mindset (Dweck 14). Next, Dr. Dweck explores the ideas of labels and how by changing a few words it affects the individual later. In one group she praises them for being smart.
I hate to say that it took her sharing vulnerabilities to make me comfortable with sharing mine, but that is how it ended up happening. This dialectic has shattered all of my previous standards of what human interaction is “supposed” to look like. This has allowed me to let go of detrimental expectations and spread more love. Going through this journey has shown me what is really important in life, following your heart and loving people. During the dialectic, I was able to apply concepts that I had previously learned and validate them through her thoughts and experiences.
By implementing literature circle all the students are reading at their level and with people from their level. Forming reading level groups, will help those students that need extra time reading to take their time and be helped by those of their level. Also, it helps advance readers will be challenge with a higher level of vocabulary that will be introduce in the reading. In classes I have observe this method of teacher is implied, but all students are reading the same books. The only different were the reading assignments were modified based on their academic level.
This was one of our challenges because she wasn’t the best person to talk to. I knew we had to change that, so as a group we decided to talk about this among ourselves and we didn’t quite achieve our goal. Most kids are unmotivated to do their work and it’s really hard to work with students who don’t try on their tutorials. One of the biggest challenges were dealing with early release day, or block days.
Even though it can be stressful to have to tell someone that their work isn 't correct, it can still be very beneficial to that person. After the first peer review I became more accepting to the idea of letting someone tell me what was wrong with my paper. I think it’s a great way to get another persons view on your paper. Along with peer reviews are revisions plans and they too can be beneficial because that gives the writer the opportunity to see their mistakes and correct them. On all my assignments I have used these tools and I have also visited the writing center on one of my assignments, which was very helpful.
