I was angry and upset. I struggled in class, but was in denial that it I could find help to improve. So I decided AP Lang was not for me, and I took English 11. Let me tell you, it was not one of my best decisions. The assignments were very easy, I always got an A, and my work was always kept as an example.
It is also saying that you should try new things if you love something ,like learning, then you should become a teacher because you won't regret something you love. A quote that supports this narrative is “every new learning both shattered and reshaped my world.” Alison is saying that learning
Mustapha Mond paused in his typing, as he once again cast his gaze upon the plain cream folder that sits precariously upon the corner of his desk. It’s insignificant, really, compared to the rest of the organised clutter that covers every other square inch of the desk. No one would guess the horror that lies inside, of a man driven by blind grief and rage to not only hang himself but to whip a poor young lady to death beforehand. Lenina Crowne. Mond sighs, resting his face against his hands.
Outliers, written by Malcolm Gladwell, is an informational book regarding the intricacies of success and how it comes to fruition in individuals. Outliers has served to teach students the means of being successful and the importance of seizing opportunities as they come. Personally, Outliers has changed my views of success in numerous ways. Before reading said book, I had always assumed people who were naturally talented or had specific privileges were the only ones who could get far. However, Gladwell’s writing has informed me that anyone, if they are prepared to work hard, can reach their goals.
The poem “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” by T.S. Eliot was first published in 1915. This is a modernistic poem that was written about a middle-aged man who is realizing that his life has been extremely uneventful and he continually refers to the fact that he is running out of time in life. He is afraid of taking risks and he is a very lonely man who does not seem to socialize a lot. One major theme in this poem is the indecision of Prufrock.
Being so involved has taught me unteachable lessons in how to manage time properly; something I will use the rest of my life. I believe that the best way to better oneself is to be well rounded. School based knowledge is such a basic level of what is out there. There is so much more to be learned and discovered. To do this I have found it essential to try
Proofreading my papers has always been a weak spot for my writing. I was always one for just hurrying through the essay and then turning it in, thinking I was too good to make those small errors. When I got those papers back I started to realize I was not the young Hemmingway I thought I was, so I started proofreading my work. After I started doing this, my grades slowly got better but they still were not satisfactory to me.
Of course, this also depends on whether the student likes the subject or not. For example, I have never been a fan of math, however I still recognize its importance due to how strong of an emphasis they have in the school curriculum. The main difference between my dislike for math and the disdain I held for music class is that I actually do care for how well I do in the former as opposed to the latter. The emphasis the school curriculum had on music courses was near to none, therefore my disregard for it was
Being a part of advanced placement classes in middle school, I expected loads of difficult work to come my way once I entered Fenway High School. These advanced classes prepared me well to succeed in high school. Although I took these higher classes, I was never good at math. Math was my worst subject because I did not like dealing with numbers. I am a history and science type of student, I prefer learning these subjects rather than math.
It provided insight on the reasons why I may be drawn to certain career choices than others, shows pertinent areas of strengths, as well as weaknesses. What I found most interesting is the parenting styles as a INTJ, although I am not yet a parent, it specifies that because of acquiring this personality trait, one may tend to be a perfectionist and as the same, expect the child to be one also. This can create a strain on the relationship. Within the workplace, I do appreciate a strict code of conduct and prefer to work in an environment that is challenging and with like-minded group of individuals. In school, the learning style made prefect sense.
As a future educator I agreed with the policy immensely, I feel that in order to have a successful teaching staff collaboration is key. Having the teachers work with one another will allow the teachers to make sure that they know what they are teaching and can help one another with any problems they may be having. The last policy was the safety and security plan, which passed. I feel that this policy is absolutely necessary in all schools, today safety in schools is often tested and needs to be as thorough as
I think that Reinhart is exactly right when he says that a student should do the explaining and the teacher should be the listener. Although I know that this would be an effective strategy to use in my future classroom, I do think that this technique will be difficult to master. Being able to ask open-ended questions, process questions, and have patience to wait for a student to raise their hand and answer those difficult ones would probably be the hardest techniques for me to master. Although I know that it would come through consistent implementation and practice. Reinhart explains that through this technique, the teacher and the student must reverse the roles of the typical classroom; the teacher must become the listener and the student must become the explainer.
The Good, the Bad, and the Back and Fourth: A literacy Narrative Her beady eyes challenged me from behind her wire-rimmed glasses, “I guess you just need to work on turning in homework.” This was the final straw. English was doomed to be my least favorite subject. At this time though I didn’t know I liked writing and reading, so I just got by. I understood its importance, but I knew there was only one pursuit in the world: STEM. Science, math, engineering, and technology were pushed onto us in middle school from day one.
However, once I met Dr. Ellis, my view on my own educational journey changed completely, and for the better. While good grades and the promise of a successful career are still my priority, I am much more passionate about the journey I am on in order to reach this goal. In his class, he challenged us to think critically, and inspired us to discover a passion
I was able to increase the benefit of task management but still struggled to maintain the efficiency that comes along with that due to losing a case manager and taking on the entire case load myself. Understanding different perspectives has always come easy to me, however, learning to quite myself when my integrity is challenged because of someone else’s perspective was a definite challenge to me. I felt that the objective of learning what effective leadership can accomplish was the one that was successful. After shadowing Barb, I learned effective communication techniques, how to inspire the staff with vision and drive and how to have integrity in the midst of turmoil. Applying this practicum to becoming a baccalaureate-prepared nurse will come in time.
