How JROTC Builds Character and Leadership JROTC is a program that builds character and leadership within students. It teaches me how to lead and corporate with others.

Cooperation and leadership are important skills that I must learn to succeed in life. Cooperating with others means being able to work with others.
There are exams to study for, deadlines to meet, and expectations to live up to. The lack of planning and organization often causes stress, but when being able to follow a workout plan, you are then capable of setting and achieving goals which can be applied to other situations. This helps students find the importance of time management and dedication. On the other hand, responsibility, defined as one’s “ability to take ownership of their actions and understand the consequences of those actions for oneself and others,” is the reason why students can keep up with their health and schoolwork (123).

We teach commitment by first showing them what we as coaches are willing to do. This would include things during the season as well as during the offseason activities. We try to make them understand that making a commitment is essential to success in life. I also try to gauge each athlete’s commitment level by asking them questions about what sacrifices they are willing to make to reach their goals. Offering them off-season activities to improve their skills also shows them that to succeed it is important to work a little harder than
For starters the person is going to train hard like an athlete every day. Since crossfit gyms are setup in a class setting he or she is able to receive one on one instruction from a certified crossfit trainer before, during and after the workout. Everyone in the group doing the workout is not only trying to complete the workout as quickly and correctly as possible, but also trying to beat the people around them. Competition is a very powerful element in life and therefore should be brought into the training environment. The aspect of competition between friends naturally makes a person work harder and pushes your body to a new level.
JROTC, Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps, is a program designed to encourage high school students to become better citizens. With an emphasis on leadership training and skills building, JROTC helps develop the "whole person" by including financial planning in the curriculum alongside wilderness survival. There are different branches of JROTC such as Army JROTC, Navy JROTC, Air Force JROTC, and Marine JROTC. So, Along with leadership training, JROTC teaches you about the military life and the disciplines. You will learn a lot more from being a JROTC Cadet than just being a high school student.
In Middle class schools students are expected to learn and follow the guidelines the teachers provide. Anyon analyzed that students in middle class schools must “follow the directions in order to get the right answers, but directions often call for some figuring, some choice, and some decision making.”(p128) Students should often figure out what the directions ask and solve the problem themselves. The teachers are there to give students the first step in order for them to succeed. Milpitas high is also an Affluent Professional school. In an Affluent Professional school students are encouraged to work and think independently, they are as Anyon said, “Constantly asked to express and apply ideas and concepts.”(p130) Suggesting that the
Cadet Jonathan Kramer LET 2 Seoul American HS Seoul, Korea “JROTC Builds Character and Leadership” To begin JROTC’s main goal is to prepare future cadets to be a good leader and to be responsible.

Leadership is built throughout the 4 years, as you increase in rank you will gain responsibilities, become an officer, a chief, and so on. You start by just being a squad member, but if you really show motivation, you will gain experience and leadership and even a higher rank.
How can you apply what you have learned? One of the most valuable elements that I learned from the Political Frame Wiki is that each of the key players play a significant role in the political frame. Key players can include counselors, teachers and even janitors. What is important is that each key player is given an opportunity to utilize their strengths to provide students with an optimal learning experience so that they may fare as adults in the real world. They key players each play a role in helping students and the school as a whole to be successful.
Many different factors can influence their reason for their attitude. Some could simply not care and it was either school or jail. Some could be new students and upset about a move so they just won’t show effort. Out of all the types of students, these students are the most mysterious because their effort doesn’t necessarily show what type of person they really are. From a social stand point, this type of student could be bullied, have conflicts at home, or be influenced by some other outside force.
I feel I can make a difference in someone’s life with my experience and drive. 2. At what level(s) do you want to coach/teach and why? I would like to coach at the junior high school level because this is the time when most children develop their brains and motor skills. At this point in their lives I believe the players would be more receptive of the training and understand why you work so hard in practice.
