How I learned to read or write… Trying to remember how I learned to read or write is hard for me. I don’t know why either. To get some help to refresh my memory I started to go through my elementary school papers. I’m so happy my mom saved my early education moments. Without those papers I would be lost trying to recall what happened.
I had never taken a real composition class before so when I started my first English class for college it most definitely was not easy, and learning to be an academic writer is something one cannot master right away. There are rules to follow and routines to guide me when writing, just like when being a Care Giver. The first few weeks of being a Care Giver vs. being an Academic Writer I would have to say were about the same, it was hard and very stressful. The first thing we learned in academic writing was the definition of it, which is pretty much breaking down ideas to better understand something by the use of deductive reasoning, a formal voice and the use of third person. To better
Unfortunately, my actions eventually led me to push my current school work aside which impacted my prioritization. I lost any kind of motivation I did have. I absolutely underestimated the criticalness. It became extremely challenging for me to balance my academic life with my personal life, especially at a magnet high school. Having to always babysit my sister after school, it has affected my school work in a negative way.
Portfolio Reflection Throughout high school I have always struggled with writing. I was never able to fully get my point across in an essay. Senior year I decided to take ERWC so I could improve my writing skills and better prepare myself for college. After taking this class for an entire year, I have found that I have gain a greater understanding of the process needed to write a proper paper. I have learned how to properly use transition words, as well as learn how to properly cited the resources and TAG them in the essay.
He said: “It is my job to give you enough time to finish your essay, but it is your job to turn it in on time”. And Jenny ended up with an “F” on her essay. It is unbelievable that Jenny did not put her essay into her folder after she finished it and she also let her brother played with her work. If this situation keeps happening, I do not think she be able to pass the class. Making-up reasons without any preparation can be the easiest way to make your excuses become worse.
Introduction I have known about this essay from the day I started this course and yet I managed to procrastinate until a few days before the due date of submission. I guess in a way I have done this due to my inner voice saying to me that I will not do well at this and why bother trying at all, and rather just start a few days ahead of time and hand in a mediocre essay which did not take to much effort and hopefully will get a pass. This voice comes all the way from school days when projects were to be done, where I would do a mediocre piece of work and get a mediocre score and my voice would say look at that – again you got an average mark. Truth be told, academics were never my strong point, I was a practical guy and resigned my self to living with that little voice. That was to be a mistake I would pay for dearly over the years and still do now.
Then I finally guessed my answer, “Yes”. Everyone sitting around me was laughing, but I didn’t know why. I got into middle school; it was really hard for me to learn new language. One day in English class, the teacher asked me a question but I didn’t know what the answer was, to be straight, I didn’t even understand what she said. At that moment, a classmate next to me gave me the answer.
I have always just gave myself the excuse that I am not a good writer and that’s how I am going to live. After reading chapter one I recognize that I have been letting myself live without giving myself a chance to catch up and learn what I need to know about the subject. After learning what is taught to me in this class I will need to keep using my new writing skills or they will be lost. My strengths are reading and understanding the assignment, typing the paper on the computer and generating creative writing skills. My weakness are using correct English grammar and punctuation, staying on topic and citing and references.
Kids are bored, and if it’s not digital, they want nothing to do with it. The caveat? Most digital information is written, so if they can’t read and write well, they’re going to be in big trouble. This suggests a major need for qualified English teachers who will think outside of the box and can help students regain interest in the written word! B. Relevance to Audience: The Occupational Outlook Handbook in 2010 indicates that highly qualified teachers will continue to be in demand for years to come, particularly as the education system continues to evolve.
My first day in high school, during my first math class, the exercises the teacher gave us looked impossible at first. Then I realised with logic and past experience from middle school that the question wasn’t that hard. It was formulated differently and I was surprised to see that with reason I was able to do it. But, does reason always confers privilege? To have reason, you have to have knowledge.
