When I came to know that I have been asked to take English remedial class, I was a bit mad at first, but then I thought that this class would make me better. I view remedial classes as practice, very much like professional athletes view training, because the best athletes practice to become better. As well, once students complete a degree with finishing the English remedial and begin seeking employment, they will find many companies emphasize good communication skills. So, It doesn’t matter if you know everything or nothing, what matters is that you benefit in every class (even if it’s a remedial). Soon, after my graduation I will be joining my dad’s business.
“No one knows what he can do until he tries” One of the most valuable life lessons in “No one knows what he can do until he tries.” When it came to school, I never tried my hardest. Whenever I didn’t understand something, I would become discouraged and give up. My absence of effort showed in my grades. However, in high school, I began to learn that if you truly give something your all, you can succeed. I always received good grades in elementary school.
Bullying, however, is an important factor that forces many children to exceed their expectations because they “[have] no choice but to persevere and to succeed” (“Love Letter To My Bully”). Colonel Graff, a teacher at Battle School, has used this principle on a young Ender Wiggin, to make him one of the best child soldiers that mankind has ever had. He “isolated Ender to make him struggle. To make him prove...that he was far better than everyone
A common rhetorical device, found in his essays is metaphor. In the opening of “Go Carolina,” Sedaris comically calls his speech therapist an “agent,” while he became the “criminal,” and the act of being taken to therapy is his “capture.” Sedaris extends this metaphor, referring to the therapist as “Agent Samson” throughout the whole essay, adding drama and wit to the passage. In “Me Talk Pretty One Day,” his French teachers insults her class through phrases such as, “Every day spent with you is like having a cesarean section.” The use of this metaphor helps Sedaris show the reader her true feelings and personality. In “In the Waiting Room,” Sedaris makes the comparison of having stitches on his gums, as having a “mouthful of spiders.” This association helps us understand the sensation better, and also serves to be comical. Sedaris also uses hyperboles to enhance the humor and drama in his writings.
Blinder’s essay was thought out and written properly on one point I think was off. Blinder referred to the “No Child Left Behind” as an institution set up to help student get ahead, when that very program nulls the thinking of students. Alan Blinder will need college students to work “on developing a creative workforce that will keep America incubating”(Blinder 12) but within the No Child Left Behind Act students are forced to learn at the same pace as the slowest student in the room, which does nothing for the new innovator of tomorrow who will become bored with school after having to slow there pace of learning. If Alan would have used this act as a part of his reform in the educational system it would have supported his claims of the system that we already have is hurting of future and not insuring that our younger generations will be able to compete in this
The program gives you challenges and opportunities to become a better citizen. The instructors are not like teachers, they put in an effort for you to actually try and build up. You do leadership tasks; you help younger teens, participate in things that other teens don't get to participate in. The class isn't boring, you’re always learning about new things, we do weekly current events, and uniform wear. Wearing uniform teaches us responsibility; we have to make sure that our uniform is in order, and has everything on correctly.
Hard work on a particular topic with full dedication and focus pertaining to his own fields of interest will surely make him achieve his goals. While coming to academics, both the intelligence and hard work comes into play very often. But, the harder they work, the more likely they will achieve greater academic success. Generally individuals with high Intellegence don't have to try that hard in school to get good or average grades; that is until high school and college. Hard work is something learned through being challenged and if a child is not challenged in their early years of education they will typically slack off in their high school and college years when hard work becomes key to success.
Football is a game of sport, measured by the ability of one to be better, faster, stronger, or quicker than the other to result in a favorable outcome. But one apparent idea of fearing what is ahead of you is an obstacle that many find, rely on faith being another form of training. I can train diligently for months or even years, to be at the peak of my physical performance. But as it may be revealed sadly, there is always someone training harder or better than myself. Does that make me a loser or a winner that I had faith that what I did what I could do?
For example, my weakness is English in school, but I am getting stronger at it because I push myself through limitations rather than give up when I have reached my limit. Knowing how far you can push yourself is a key factor to learn during your growth as a person. You never want to give up and just stop striving to be improved more than you were yesterday, or last week, or last year even. The understanding that you don’t have to kill yourself to be better is a good way to measure your strengths durability. Just remembering that people defy logical strength all
Personally, I think a successful college student should be one who always challenges himself that he's not good enough. “To improve is to change, to be perfect is to change often,” said Winston Churchill. Being successful is a matter of continuous effort, but not only strength or intelligence. A successful college student should be able to rectify his defects, open-minded enough to accepting new ideas day and night in pursuit of perfectibility deliberately and spontaneously. Secondly, with a positive attitude, we can put into action, which is to focus, to get things done, and to be active.
