We all had agreed that we had felt bad about how poorly Mexican-Americans were treated at this time. One of my group mates brought up how this would be an informative book to bring up how discrimination is immoral Overall, I really want to thank you for having us do this assignment. It was so fun to be able to take forty-five minutes to an hour to just read. I wish more teachers appreciated novels and the potential impact that they have on their students’ cognitive mindset. This book is definitely one that I will be using in my class.
When I first saw that ACA-122 was a required course to complete your Associate in Arts degree, I thought it was an unnecessary course to have to take. What else could I possibly learn about College Transfer Success at the end of my degree? To my surprise, as I come to the end of ACA-122 class, I find myself to be a more prepared student and future employee. I wish I had taken this course during my first semester at Guilford Technical Community College. The self-assessment tests we had to take at the beginning of the semester reassured me that I was on the right path academically and career wise.
My goal was not just to attend college, but to attend a high ranking university where I would obtain the best education. In order to achieve this goal, I needed a better high school education. In 8th grade, a representative from the California Academy of Math and Science (CAMS) visited our school to provide us with information and
In both Mexican and American schools mathematics, language arts, science, and social studies are taught. Electives, geared towards the student’s future career path, are offered later on in the education system, just like they are offered to me now in the United States. Finally, an additional similarity between American and Mexican schools is that both education systems
The event was hosted by the University North Texas at Dallas veterans center. Even though I am not an American citizen I find interest in learning more about certain cultures and significant events in history. This particular day made me reflect on all the liberties presented to us every day without us realizing it. Initially I thought it might be an event for those who have family members in the military or someone who could relate to 9/11 however I didn’t feel alienated from the group instead I felt like a part of it. The organizers were trying to promote patriotism in school and to remember an event that had such a big impact in the nation.
At the end of the students activity, which took place over many days, a parent of one of the students came in to show them how to make a Mexican candy (Moll, Amanti, Neff & Gonzalez, 2005). This section of the article was particularly important for two reasons. One is because it showed the importance of incorporating home cultures into the classroom but it also gave a pretty detailed lesson plan, that as a future educator should be something to always be on the lookout
Plater Personal Statement When I was a Community Service Scholar, I took a class called the Psychology of Giving (PHST-P330) that was attached to the position. The whole class was centered on how we can combine our personalities, educational achievements, and civic service experiences to become a civic minded graduate and then after graduation become a civic minded professional when we have acquired the job we aspire to. Prior to the class, I had not realized that there was such a concept. But as Jennifer Halford introduced and explain the theory of the civil-minded graduate, I could no longer see myself not being one. At that time, I was volunteering at the Exodus Refugee Immigration for about 4 hours a week to complete my community service scholar requirement.
When I finished middle school, I had two choices: to go to my large home high school, or to go to a small high school that is relatively far from my home. Although I still had my doubts, I eventually decided to go to the smaller high school, William Smith. During my time at William Smith, I have learned about myself as much as I learned about my academic subjects. For example, I have come to realize that I enjoy close relationships with my teachers and peers, and that I perform at my best when I am in collaborative study environments. When I first learned about Colorado College through QuestBridge and later through my high school counselor, I was excited to know that Colorado College emphasizes the same values of collaboration and lifelong
At the start of my freshman year of college, I decided to dive straight into organic chemistry. Having a preview of the subject in a special offered course at the end of my senior year of high school intrigued me and I wanted to learn more. Despite academic advisors telling me I would struggle and possibly fail at taking such a notoriously difficult class at the beginning of my academic career, I felt confident in my ability to take it and be successful, and I was right. During the second part of the course, I met my current principal investigator, Dr. Adelina Voutchkova. I signed up for her class specifically because I heard she incorporated many aspects of green chemistry in her lectures, such as toxicology and sustainability that really
I have gained knowledge because I enrolling in higher level classes such as honors and AP classes. They changed me by having a better understanding of how college is going to be like for me in the future. Some honors and AP classes I have taken are: Geography, computer science, Spanish, pre-calculus, anatomy, U.S history, statistics, and government. All the preparation of my classes, teachers, and the programs I have participated in have helped me to know that I can go to college and if I try I know can be successful. I was in AVID my 7th and 8th grade years and in the Scholars program during my freshman year, but my second year of high school, I decided it was best for me to manage my way out of the Scholars program because I preferred
So far in class, I believe I learned so much. The main reason I took this class was to learn more about my history and learning more about what is going on right now. In high school I never learned about the history of Mexicans Americans, only about Cesar Chavez, but that was pretty much it. I appreciate that I this class gives me an opportunity to learn more about Chicanx and gives an open space for all us to speak our opinion. One thing I look forward to learning and researching is the Chicano Movement.
I hope with this type of class, students will be become more interested in the subject and want to help with the preservation of historical sites. I have this desire due to my academic experience. In my experiences, learning about events such as the Revolution were more fascinating when I visited historical sites. For example when I was in high school, I visited the Red Bank Battlefield. This battle took place during the Revolution and prevented the British from using the Delaware River to transport supplies.
I chose the topic diesel vs gasoline engine, because I plan on becoming a diesel mechanic, and to help further my education. Another reason I chose this topic was for the many people who are unaware of the new diesel technology. For my advisor I picked Mr. Bedenbaugh, also known as Mr. B. Me and Mr. B worked together for my senior experience, in fact he was the one who helped me decide to make a V8 model engine for my community service. Mr. Bedenbaugh is also my first block teacher, which makes it much easier to ask questions and get the help I need for my senior experience.
I really enjoyed the way this book was written, it was written in a way that Native Americans have been known to teach each other. They pass their knowledge down to their children through their stories. It was like sitting down with a grandparent and hearing their story of the war. I first picked this book up because the Navaho Indians were mentioned in my AP History class, but because of the time frame we had before the test was taken they were only briefly mentioned. This book grabbed my attention because of the topic and that the main characters point of view didn’t just start with the war it explained his background and why he is the type of person he became.
Throughout school history is one of the major subjects we learn about whether it be U.S history or World history; however, we always learn history from an American perspective. When we learn about Columbus discovering the Americas, we read how Columbus and his men discovered this new land that had not been settled on yet and that the men helped the Native Americans. As readers of the textbook we believe this to be true, when another country might have the same information interpreted in a different way. This can be true for all events throughout history; the writers are informing us of the events and influencing our views about how an event
