Arrogance will never get anyone anywhere, it only makes people lose trust and lose respect. Finally, it is important to realize that not everybody understands what is needed to be a true hero to people. What would our world be like if everyone knew what it took to be a true
History is bound to repeat itself if this isn’t taught throughout the student's education. Students have the right to learn about the people who have come before them and how problems were solved and dealt with in the real world. Eighth grade students are mature enough to learn about the Holocaust, and it will be very beneficial in their future. The Holocaust should be taught in schools to eighth graders because soon it will help them get ready for future courses in high school, help students strengthen their acceptance of diversity, and will be appropriate for eighth grade students. Many topics
I knew that I needed to not just put in the same effort as other kids my age but far more. I needed to show others that yes, I am not from this country, but I am capable of doing as good and if not better. Looking back, I can proudly say that my all my hard work ever since has paid off. Today, I am a thriving early college student. At the age of fourteen, I was accepted into an Early College High School that has allowed me to take dual credit courses since my freshman year of high school.
My first year of school at the University of Arkansas was even more spectacular than I could have wished for. In the fall I participated in the Razorback Marching Band. It immersed me in Razorback traditions and helped me to feel welcome here so far from home. I made friends and learned how to allocate my time wisely for studying and getting homework done. I took the first two semesters of the Honors Humanities Project (H2P) and thoroughly enjoyed the subject.
“Thou shalt not be a victim, thou shalt not be a perpetrator, but, above all, thou shalt not be a bystander,- Yehuda Bauer. We should not be a perpetrator, victim, and bystander, yet we have been each one more than once and continue to be them, not realizing it and changing it. I cannot say that I have never been one but I have. It doesn't matter affect me when I say I am a victim, but it is difficult to say that I was a terrible person on more than one occasion. On the other hand, it is good to identify the bad things we do to change and improve, but no one will ever be perfect because we are all human beings.
I am describing my junior year with the word tutorial because I look at it as a lesson that I did not have to study for, I just had to be ready to deal with anything harsh that was to ever be thrown at me or into my direction. From my junior year, I remember so many things such as being kicked out of my first high school and attending my second semester of my junior year at Euclid High School, making good grades, having a few friends with many laughs, trying to participate in events that the school would hold so that I could be more involved with the school staff as well the student body, helping out with the yearbook class, and having conversations, that will remain unforgettable, with the adults of Villa Angela- St. Joseph High
Non-conformity is the refusal to conform to a prevailing rule, practice, or trend. According to famous blogger Conni Biesalski “Non-conformity is dead.” Everyone who claims to being a nonconformist is unaware of the dangers that follow. They must live up to the standards of being different 24/7 and how exhausting that must be. Constantly setting an example on how people must be, never being an individual. More specifically, I believe that people rather follow into other’s footsteps than rather create their own.
We all hate getting jaded, am I right? We also hate having to do things that we are forced to do right? Well, some things just fit in that category like a puzzle. Now, come perfectly lawful with me and say that you have never forced anybody to do something that they didn 't want to. Anyone?
Hello, I am Connor Love. I am writing this letter as a soon to be former student of Katy Leuschen 's "Waves of Change" writing 111 class. The first semester of my collegiate career has taught me many valuable lessons, from learning how to better succeed academically to how to deal with the flu without my mother. The lessons I have learned in writing class have not only helped my writing abilities grow, but also have helped me improve in other aspects of my life. During "Waves of Change" I learned how to revise my work, more importantly, that uncertainty during the writing process is normal, and revise my thinking.
At school, I rarely felt challenged and I would enjoy being in a program that makes me think about real-world situations in a way that will help me later in life. I would like to expand my knowledge concerning negotiation and debate in a friendly setting. Last year, I learned things at LCM that I had never heard of before. It would be nice to be learning these skills for the entire year, as LCM is my only source of information concerning debate and
One of the most positive things that I did with students this year was to take the Honors students to Lenape Elementary during Teen Read Week. Teen Read Week is an initiative of the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). Teen Read Week started in 1998. In an effort to involve my students and inspire elementary students to read, my Honors English class, in cooperation with seven Lenape Elementary teachers and the building principal, we arranged a schedule,
Concentration camps were not something a person should have to live through. They were inhumane. These people were targeted just because of who they are or what they believed in. This is a low point in history for us and it should never repeat itself. Many have been scarred with this event and it will never be
This motivates me to become a part of the education field, because caring teachers are much needed in area like this. Teaching is a privilege because it is an opportunity to provide students with a blessing of knowledge that they may not be able to obtain from home. Minorities from low-income areas most likely do not live in the best conditions, therefore they need to utilize the classroom as a safe haven. Knowing that these student probably cannot afford to get a tutor for the SATs or even study properly because they do not understand the context, makes me want to be a teacher who would offer tutoring sessions for free, find
