Rebecca Laessig My Life as a Writer I don't consider myself to be the greatest writer. My grammar has a lot to be improved upon and I always seem to be at a loss for words. with that said, writing is a bit of a challenge for me. I don't hate writing, but I don't necessarily enjoy it either. in my paper, I will write about my accomplishments, routine writings, and major strengths and how they help develop my writing skills today.
Culture does not make a difference for me when it comes to meeting people. When I first moved to this country and I didn’t speak the language I really appreciated those who took the time to get to know me, and were patient with me. I remember them and a lot of them are still in my life for the simple fact that they accepted me even though I was a stranger to their culture. I would be a straight up loser if I did not accept or tolerate people from other cultures, since I am different myself. I do consider myself open minded.
You know that they are just waiting for something to beep at them. They are begging and hoping for something to beep at them. At this point, when his cell phone rang. People interrupted a meeting to take a cell-phone call, they always say the same thing: “Excuse me, but I must take this.” then went on, “Hello?…That’s okay. You’re not interrupting me…I’m in a meeting, but it’s not anything important.” So, if you are a cell-phone user, please beware to be used it in public.
I understood that this training was too provide me with needed information but the facilitator just talked and did not involve me or others, which made me believe that the training was a negative learning experience. I thought that the use of a flip chart would be very useful but because it was not in the corner and the room was also crowded. Another thing that I honestly disliked was the humor that the facilitator uses in training. The facilitator made negative comments about the families that I and others will be working without knowing if we had biological families addicted to drug. I believe that it’s helpful to provide facts about drug users but not to make comments to make someone laugh.
When given this speech I wasn't very concerned with practicing. I knew Heather and I would be able to do an okay job without going over the speech to many times. We didn't have trouble going back in forth because we basically knew what would be the last line. This worked out okay, but as I watched the video I realized I paused a lot and sometimes repeated what I was saying. After seeing that I know I should of practiced a few more times.
REFLECTION PAPER-SIX THINKING HATS During our case study exercise I suggested using the “Brainstorming” approach but throughout the session discussions I reeled back to my traditional way of solving a problem. That traditional mindset was the right or wrong point of view or linear acceptance information. The reason I suggested the “Brainstorming” approach is from my experience working on advisory panels. Although I knew that everyone should throw out there ideas whether good or bad. What I had forgotten and did not employ is not to argue anyone’s point of view.
Indeed, nothing else has even a fraction of grammar’s importance. Given its function as a kind of access-code to the professional classes, we do a great disservice to our students if we fail to teach it. The question, of course, is how? The key to teaching grammar successfully is to do it in a way that safeguards against fostering larger and larger disconnections between student writers, their texts, and their rhetorical contexts. In other words, lectures and exercises, as noted above, are simply no good.
The media has been known to work side by side in helping the police departments, but it has also been known to work against those in law enforcement. Those working in a field relating to reporting information to the public will say their responsibility is to the public, not law enforcement. There are some situations where it is true that journalist have a responsibility to the public to report the happenings in the world in a truthful and non bias manner. In some instances the media is attempting to do just that but can impact an open case by divulging information that was to be kept private. When it comes to media relations, many police departments and city managers follow the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP).
Everyone had different levels of computing literacy therefore it was difficult to combine our knowledge and to do the project as a whole. However, I was fortunate to have good team members, although they were not able to help much in the computing area, they did the least they could, offering help when needed and giving me mental support. There were a couple of questions required in the assignment which I had no clue at all on how to answer them. I had to ask around amongst my friends for assistance and I asked my computing lecturer for help. I did manage to overcome some of these tough nuts in the end.
Another reason is that family and friends can provide us more useful advice. First of all, experience that we can actually go through is so limited that we can hardly learn every aspect of lives from this. The basic reason that people read books is to gain valuable lessons and wisdom by indirectly experiencing through main characters in the book since people can not experience everything within their limited given time. Like this, we can learn a lot from advice of others. For example, the advice from my father greatly helped me to choose my future dream.
