I hope what we did shows them, no matter your size, no matter your age, no matter height or weight, if you put more work in then the next guy you will be successful. No matter what just play you heart out and leave it all on the field. Do to the actions my teams and I have accomplished in those years I believe my family will think highly of me for working hard and playing my heart out, but that's part of the reason they will think highly of me. I feel they will because we set the bar high for the oncoming district teams as they will have to work insanely hard and long so they can accomplish something we didn't. As I may be athletic and played in the regional tournament I wanna be remembered for something more then that, I wanna be remembered for who I am as a person, my traits could have played into this as I am the person to make people laugh when down, or always joking around and happy, alone side that I am hardworking and I want my teachers to always remember me for that as I work hard day in and out during school.
Success is not simple or frequent, but it’s the effort that one attempts to achieve it that counts. Michelle Obama once said, "Success isn’t about how much money you make, it 's about the difference you make in people 's lives." While playing different sports, some people think of success as playing to the best of their abilities, whereas other athletes acknowledge winning as success and they set the bar too high for themselves and end up failing. Having success causes excitement and pride and in the world we live in today, and everyone wants to be successful. But really success should be defined as great achievement by always doing things to their most capable point.
(3-5) Other critics argue that exit exams might cause students who are already struggling academically to drop out of high school or get a general equivalency (GED) diploma instead. "There's no evidence that these exams encourage students to stay in school," Keith Gayler, of the Center on Education Policy, told The Boston Globe, some educators are also concerned that the exam will disproportionately hurt students for whom English is a second language and those who come from schools with already low graduation rates. Twenty-six states either currently have a high school exit exam or plan to put one in place. Given the number of high school students in these states, it means that exit exams affect more than two-thirds of the nation’s public high school students. These exams vary from state to state in terms of content and opportunities for students who do not pass to retake the test and/or demonstrate competency.
He has always wanted to join the House of Scholars and discover the world around him, “We think there are mysteries in the sky…water...plants… We loved the science of things,” Now, being assigned as a street sweeper, he is not satisfied with the job he has been given, and Equality is looking for other creative outlets to express himself. Having been part of the great WE for so long, he starts feeling the need to do his own thing. His scientific endeavors bring him joy therefore, he continues doing so. If he did not have these motivations, he would still have been like everyone else and followed society like they were supposed
We can learn from our failures and grow from them to try to be more like those great men. We can also learn from these great men on how they learned from their mistakes. The Nautilus has been trapped but “Still, as the spiral grew,/He left the past year’s dwelling for the new” as the nautilus grow (Holmes L 17-18). The Nautilus did not know the meaning of perfection, yet the nautilus still grew regardless. It kept growing, because the soul wants to grow no matter
Middle School to High School In middle school, one thing that I thought of high school is that it wouldn’t be much different than middle school. I was told a lot of bad things about high school, people saying “just wait until you get to high school, everything gets a lot worse” or “you think it’s hard now? Just wait.” When I was in middle school, I was told as well as thought that high school wouldn’t be any different than middle school except for it being harder academic wise. One thing that I would want the current eight graders to know, is that high school isn’t as bad as people set it out to be. Everyone says that it’s so hard, or so much work, but if you stay on task and pay attention in class it’s not that bad.
Because of their mistake of not pursuing a higher education, at home, school is one of our top priorities. Becoming a first generation college student has been stressful to say the least. There is a lot more pressure on you than there may be with others who have family members who have gone to college before. Getting a poor grade on a test is totally different to a first generation student, failing this test will lower
Ensure that your plate has more of the lean meat and vegetables rather than generous helpings of stuffing and sweets. Pick one form of starch Starch-rich foods will be aplenty at the table, but resist the temptation to load everything on your plate if you do not want to send your blood sugar level skyrocketing. Instead, choose one item like macaroni and cheese, fried appetizers, or mashed potatoes. Although these are not quite what you would term as healthy food options, you can surely make the best out of the situation by choosing just one. Go the light way If you are the host for a Thanksgiving dinner, you have the opportunity to make your dishes with less sugar and fat.
- Boring you. - Dissatisfied with what you're doing (at home or at work), and use every opportunity to bite something to himself afforded a moment of enjoyment. - You sad or are stressed. - Think only on food. Consuming foods you love leads to increased secretion of endorphins, the hormone of good mood.
Since the introduction of standardized tests, we have seen a larger focus on trying to catch everyone up to the ability to take the same test. This has made teaching nearly impossible, since now teachers are teaching a sliver of the class what they really need to learn and because of this and the barriers that students face, “U.S. students slipped from 18th in the world in math in 2000 to 31st place in 2009, with a similar decline in science and no change in reading” (Shatzky). Students are no longer being taught how to learn and how to critically think, and are instead taught how to take a test because although we see a decline in the rankings of the world; the test score averages have increased over time. How is it that we as a country are falling in rank, but increasing in test scores which should reflect an increase in
He understands that if students are failing they have to recover quickly and it may cause them to not understand the concept and they may end up taking “remedial math” because they were “pushed to hard and too fast”. Another persuasive element the author uses is logos. In “what about calculus” it explains that the “U.S. students ranked second from the bottom in 2003 Trends in International Math and Science Study” but the kids who were taking calculus ranked first in the world. Not every student is going to be ready for AP calculus that 's why some schools offer other math alternatives to help.
I believe Rob Gronkowski is a positive role model for several reasons. When I see how successful he is, and how much fun he has with it, it drives me to one day become like him. He often talks about how if you want to be the best at something, you have to earn it. He is a great example that even if you are the best, don 't take yourself too seriously and have fun every once in awhile. He shows everyone the importance of showing resilience, fighting back from his back surgery in college.
My friend and I are struggling to change our mindset, from fixed mindset to growth mindset. We don’t blame our parents for that, and we can’t, because we also learn at school and at our community, which are really out of our parents’ control. Instead, we are thankful to becoming what we are and knowing that we are able to change our mindset now. I know change is hard, but it is possible and worth it. I like the quote from Mindset book, “Change can be tough, but I’ve never heard anyone say it wasn’t worth it.” (Mindset 246) It is become the biggest challenge in our life, because if we want to change our mindset, then we need to change it now while we are young, otherwise it would be too late.
Rodriguez applies logos to clearly explicate where the brown’s lie, they are the impure as “brown [is an] impurity” and the social standards are pure (Rodriguez xi). He then furthers his argument with the application of pathos to convey the brown are “like the skinny or fat kids left over after the team captains chose sides. ‘You take the rest’- my cue to wander away to the sidelines, to wander away” (Rodriguez 5). They are the unwanted, the obscure with bold individuality. As Rodriguez explains “[Americans] prefer plainness in theology, in our food, in our rhetoric [...]” we despise stepping out of the social normality and our comfort zone.
I am the one that decides to go out to eat, I am the one who decides what I order, and I am the one who physically eats the food. America is lazy. America is so lazy that they cannot take responsibility for their own actions! Instead they want to try and pin the blame on something else. We as adults, decide what we put into our own bodies.
