Some argue that this new technology promotes short attention spans and lack of appreciation for the historical arts (Source E). Without the correct guidance, this statement may hold true for some students, but if teachers recognize that technology, like anything else, must be monitored and used only in proper context, that danger disappears. Technology can even be blended with traditional learning in order to maximize efficiency. Students could be asked to read a work of classic literature such as Shakespeare and later be asked to post on an online discussion board about their interpretations and reading experiences. In the end, students will learn more through technology because it provides a setting in which they are able to understand and relate to the information.
Even though people can 't help but let things get to them, they can shape there perception into something that can help them instead of focusing on things that bring them down because it will help them be more successful , they won 't focus on the negative , and it can help them live a better life . In The Achievement Habit, Bernard Roth persuades his readers that there life has no meaning unless they give it meaning. It 's a very unusual message for an author to send to his readers but throughout the chapter he uses the rhetorical triangle ethos, logos & pathos to really get the audience to understand his message. Many people let a certain situation ruin there day, and Roth explains why life is just simply better without giving it meaning. Roth states that he 's a Professor at Stanford University and has been teaching for 52 years.
INTRODUCTION Some goals I have for this paper is for people to understand that people’s versions of things are not always going to be the what it is supposed to be and that people have opinions. Another goal is that people don’t judge this paper because it is not perfect, humans are not perfect. Lastly, my final goal for this paper is for it to be good enough for me to do more productive things. SURVEY RESULTS The basic survey results made a graph about what I am better at. They said I am better at learning new ways to do things, which I feel is true.
The fact alone that he had a dislike for books does not constitute that he would be greater at teaching them. His overall experience with literature and his unconventional way of coming to love literature is what makes him have an advantage as a teacher. Not all students learn the same way. There are those that need a more hands on approach, where as some that can learn by simply listening to the teachers lectures. The ability to put yourself in the shoes of that child and figure out a different way to teach them is a major advantage.
I think that the man was doing the right thing by going out and following his owns ways. The teacher could have been wrong and by listening to the teacher he has conformed to society and what they think instead of thinking about his own ideas and how he really feels about the topic. This would lead them all into the wrong path. If you keep doing the wrong thing you can never reach the peak in knowledge ,which is supposed to help a person strive to be unique and break out from that bubble of conformity. Why should people always the the same thing instead of keeping an open mind and expressing how they feel not how everyone feels and that topic?
Later on in the class I learned how to make it more interesting and eye catching. As you can see in my Comparative Analysis Essay it has gotten much better. The purpose I my Self-Inventory Essay sounded like this “I 'm good at figuring out the purpose of the writing prompt and using sources but I am not good at structuring and having sentence cohesion” but my Comparative Analysis Essay sounded much better “Something as simple as a parent’s language or financial situation is enough to impact the rest of their kids’ life”, it was more descriptive and smooth. It sounds like something people would want to
This is why sometimes when you are in class and you have a question to ask the teacher but she picks someone else and they ask their question, after they finish asking you would have forgotten your own question because you paid attention to theirs. The reason that STM has a smaller capacity than LTM is because this is an evolutionary survival advantage. It enables us to pay attention to a small number of important things when we are in danger like fastest escape route etc., rather than a plethora of things that would otherwise distract us from
Through reading we are able to gain knowledge about anything and apply this knowledge in reality. We can enlighten ourselves with information but without it we are stuck in dark. In regards to whether reading makes us nicer, I do not think there is a way to prove that because a person’s morals have a lot to do with their upbringing and personality. Based on the information previously stated, most educators would more like be a proponent of deep reading as opposed to reading online because deep reading is more thought provoking, there are less distractions, and deep reading allows us to use are imagination more through its use of details and metaphors. In conclusion, both deep reading and online reading can make us smarter but the experiences and mental capacities developed from
Sometimes students may realize that their teacher is lacking in certain areas of their teaching and the student may feel like the teacher isn’t explaining the material to their full potential. That is when being able to evaluate your teacher becomes beneficial. If the teacher chooses to take the negative feedback or criticism and turn it into constructive criticism, it will be benefiting everyone. An understanding teacher would value the students input and use it to their benefit to help improve themselves and their their learning process. Not only will the teachers improve on their performance but it will also reflect on the
I will never know I will fail or not before I do something according to my ideas, so it is important for me to try. And if I fail, failure teach me to analysis the things I do, I can learn from the particle experience about what works and what does not work. After that, I can do some adjustment in the future. Furthermore, we can also learn integrity through failure, integrity is the quality of being honest and having a high moral principle, failure teaches us to listen to others opinions and feedbacks more. People exchange ideas with others and listen to others experience can decrease the possibility to fail a task.
(Not passionate about ideas and books, just want the grade. JOB) Learning how to think also influences students to find what they are passionate about, that is more then grades. Without this passion, students cannot succeed as well as they want, and be happy. This lack of passion in elite student’s starts with a ‘mutual nonaggression pact.’ is created “so students want to do as little as possible. Professors are rewarded for research” (Deresiewicz 64).
Sometimes things and events get in the way, but it is important to be optimistic. Having a positive attitude is also something that wears off onto other people, including my students. People do not want to be surrounded by negativity, so simply try and look at the positive side of every situation. Reflective At the end of a lesson or day, I like to reflect on things I did well and things I didn’t do well on. By doing this it helps me to pick apart what was good and what wasn’t, so that I can better myself in the future.
Teachers are giving students easy work to make them feel proud of their grade. Easy work isn’t going to change the student 's mindset. This will just make it harder for the student to learn new things, difficult things, as in this case they would want to give up and not try. Dweck also states, “Kids need to be given hard problems, instead of being rewarded for easy problems” (22). Difficult work is what needs to be given to students to help them learn and the process of making mistakes.
I believe I am more similar to the Extroverted, Sensing, Thinking, and intuition type than the Extroverted, Sensing, Feeling, and intuition type. This is mainly because I am a thinker, not feelers. I am a leader who can be pretty stubborn and bossy, and I like to choose the decision I know is right, even if it doesn 't benefit other people. I believe the reason I had an inaccurate first test, Is because I was sugar-coating some of my behaviors. When the test asked, "Do you usually make sure you get your way or do you value others opinions just as much as yours?"
However, some claim that removing electives would allow students to focus more on school instead of work instead of socializing. School is for learning and earning an education, and electives are just different styles of learning designed for different types of minds. In conclusion, the students of central high school receive a great benefit from these elective classes. Electives are needed for students to jumpstart their careers and express their talents in a mature, professional way. Doing away with electives would bring more harm than just fixing
