These courses offer more comprehensive and fast paced learning than normal. In eighth grade, your teachers either recommend you for honors classes or you are excluded from them for the next four years. I was excluded. Although I believed that I was able to perform in an honors course, my teacher did not. So I entered high school in all regular classes.
If I need help I must ask my teachers instead of my parents. I have done this since I started school here in the U.S. Many people had told me that I don't know the meaning of surrender because I'm always up to something. When I want to get through something I take step by step to accomplish that need. It might sometimes be difficult for me, but unless I put that effort, I can do anything.
The most common answers are a teacher, an astronaut, a doctor, a nurse, a chef, a steward/ess, to name a few. No one answers that they want to be a CEO someday, or an accountant or an office worker. As they grow up, that’s when they are introduced to the different jobs they can take aside from the common ones they learned as a kid. But there are some of those who have carried their dream and passion as they grew. Those who have always aspire to be a teacher or a doctor.
These values are easy to say but hard to live by and maintain. This essay will exemplify one of the seven values and how it has affected my life. When I was in my senior year of high school, I was given the responsibility to train, teach, and lead a renowned drill team. I had more people cheering for me to fail than to succeed, and I understood why because on the outside looking in, the only thing anyone could see was a quiet and meek baby faced female that could not be a day out of middle school. Despite the doubts I stood up and took my responsibilities, and was given a team of thirty two junior reserved officer training corps (JROTC) cadets ranging from 9th to 12th grade that were coming from all different walks of life.
I could finally get a job, a job that would allow myself to cater for the next few years of my life. Some people say that education isn’t everything and of course anybody is allowed to have their own opinion and that is why mine is that I believe without an education in most cases you are most likely to not achieve much within your life, just think all of you sitting in this room today the amount of knowledge that each and every one of you has gained over the past 14-15 years is insane. People like yourselves are much better off than people like my family and all of the people that I have been brought up with throughout my lifetime. Throughout the novel Balzac and the Chinese seamstress it relates to this when MA is going to be taken away by the village headman for spreading “revolutionary trash” he is saved by Luo’s knowledge in dentistry. From the background I have been brought up in I can tell you now that I stuongly do believe that
FOUR COGNITIVE SKILLS FOR SUCCESSFUL LEARNING Jane Doe Your University Here Instructor 30 January 2011 “There is nothing that any human being knows, or can do, that he has not learned.” (du Plessis, 2002). From the time we are born, until the time we die, whether we know it or not, we are constantly learning. It is imperative that we exercise our brains in the same way we know we should exercise our bodies. While our minds require several learning skills to improve the way we learn, paramount among those learning skills are cognitive skills. “Cognitive skills are the mental capabilities you need to successfully learn academic subjects” (Gibson, 2007, p. 36).
Since then the community has been nothing but nice to me, and me and my family have made many life-long friends here in Cold Spring Harbor. In Cold Spring Harbor schools, I have learned tons of information about respecting other cultures and ways of life. My community and neighbors here in Cold Spring Harbor have definitely positively affected my cultural values and understanding. My family has been very lucky financially to live in such a great community and has taught me to really be grateful for the things that I have. Many things in life “shape” me and my personality other than family and the community too.
With the help of this class and Dr Fairbairn’s research, I have finally been able to figure out why he is the way he is. We all have those certain people in our lives that we just cannot understand. No matter how long we have known this person, there are always certain circumstances where that person never ceases to surprise us with reactions that are far from the norm. After long consideration and vigilant interpretation, I have come to find that there is not just one theory that can cover this person in which baffles me. Throughout this course I have found that our minds work in a puzzling and indirect way.
Throughout my lifetime, I have always struggled with these. However, becoming a parent and running a household has helped me learn their value. Harry A Overstreet must have been referring to me when he stated “The immature mind hops from one thing to another; the mature mind seeks to follow through.” Before I became a parent, and learned how to manage my time wisely, I would jump from task to task. Project I had started would be left abandoned in a drawer or closet. I lived in a world of chaos.
Through my experiences in further education I have realized, one cannot complete the course to their potential if they do not possess the majority of the skills that Boud highlightsOne of the many problems that has arisen and challenged me concerning my pursuit of education is boredom. This has not been an issue that has arisen overnight rather it has been growing ever since I can remember, however it reached its peak recently during my time as an education studies degree student. “Boredom…occasionally haunts almost any sustained act of learning.” (Strong et al. 2003, p.24)Since the age of four I have been attending full time education, no breaks, and year after year those six weeks of summer holidays have been the only real window of escape.The nature of academic learning is repetitive due to its restrictions, and the constant attendance
