So I would lie to my parents saying that I am done with work. I also used to do my homework late at night or at school the day it's do like other students. Other times I would have nothing to do for homework so I would say that I'll get tomorrows done today one day before it is due. Stupidly I wouldn't do it the next day either which meant I would get a zero or partial credit. Some days I think I have no home work and won't go on to grade portal to double check.
One of the biggest and most obvious goals I have set would be graduating high school. This should be a pretty easy goal to accomplish but I do need to watch myself in some of my classes. Some of the big things I need to do to meet this goal are improving my neatness, not being lazy and actually turning assignments, and trying to study as much as I can. The hardest of these will unquestionably be turning in my homework. I’ve always had a hard time turning in any homework and this is the year I need to start doing it.
In example, if a student gets by in his English class not caring and not trying to learn, but his teacher likes the student so he passed him, when that student goes to college he will have trouble because he doesn’t know how to write a correct essay because he was given the grade. “Ten of thousands of 18 years-old will graduate this year and will be handed meaningless diplomas (Sherry 510). This shows most students have high school diplomas but
Not to mention my memory isn’t as sharp as it was years ago so I have to study extra hard and do extra work to help memorize what I am doing. What I read and learn today I am not going to remember for test three weeks from now. So I have to take advantage of the teach and learn center to learn the subject like the back of my hand no questions ask. In addition to my age, having little money is an obstacle in my education as well. Going to school to better my education is quite expensive and time consuming.
Returning to School Sylvia Todd English 121 Stephanie Derisi November 18, 2012 To accomplish great things , we must dream as well as act. –Anatole France Here I am 7 years later and I am writing a paper for one of my college classes. Little did I know it would take me so long to finish what I started back then. I am going to share with you why returning to school is important to me, the benefits of getting a college degree and what motivates me to make this choice and continue to stick with it. Like everyone who decides to return to school I would like a better job, better pay and of course a college degree.
I did horrible my freshman year but my mom still managed to discipline me enough after seeing my report card that I went from a 1.8 to a 3.0 student by the end of the year. She did this by enforcing strict discipline. I wasn't allowed to go out and I had to stay home everyday to work on my homework. Society hasn't shaped me, the community I lived in hasn't shaped me, what really made me what I am today is my mom. She shaped me to become what I am today, even though it took many years to make me into what she wanted me to be, she's the one who gave me my mindset to try my best and to always know there's room for
Without setting goals most people would not pursue their dreams because they see no reward in the end for having to go through some hard times. With this attitude, success for many would be out of reach, but with the idea of setting goals for self motivation, everyone can be successful with hard work. In my life I make sure to set goals and strive to achieve them but even though I may not reach all of them I can say to myself in the end that I have tried my hardest and have accomplished something along my journey. I believe I need this scholarship because it is a big step in achieving my goal of going to college and getting a career started in chemical engineering. With this scholarship that goal would start to become more of a reality because I would then have the financing for my college education and I would only have supply and apply myself to gain the education.
It took determination, a lot of studying and two years, but I finally managed to pass the Algebra II Trigonometry Regents. Some New York schools changed the curriculum, and instead of teaching Geometry before Algebra II Trigonometry, they reversed it to accommodate the more difficult Regents exams. The problem with that was that students weren’t learning the correct math subtopics that were going to be on the test. The first Algebra II Trigonometry Regents that I took in June 2010 was after completing the entire full year course. When I first opened the test, I realized that some of the topics included were never taught.
Roxana Useda ENC 1101 Professor Cash November 30, 2012 Why Trust the FCAT? Have you ever felt when taking the FCAT you are wasting your time? Over the years students have been required to take a test that will evaluate them on how well they do. The FCAT is given to obtain an insight on how much students are learning on three main subjects, science, reading, and math every year. Despite the benefits teachers and schools obtain, standardized testing like the FCAT is not effective in evaluating student’s performance because not all students learn at the same level, they fall under pressure, and they are being taught just for the test which prevents from learning skills that are yet to be learned.
