Sometimes I try to switch it up to reading and watching, but I always seem to fail at that. So now I go hands on as often as possible and work with physical objects or any activity. A good example of learning through this style is in order for me to learn a new a new item or any new equipment that I have to learn, I pretty much play around with the item until I know that I am ok with it or I have full knowledge of how it works or how to work it. I might apply my own learning style to study through this course and the program. I think it will be better for me so that I won’t get confused by switching to a different learning style.
The way I improved my paper was taking my instructors constructive criticism and making the necessary corrections, to the best of my ability. I had obvious problems with the comma usage, dangling modifiers, and it was no question that I have to improve my vocabulary. Referring back to the text book and using the Thesaurus definitely helped me make the best revisions that I can make. The most challenging part of this assignment for me was to expand the use of my vocabulary. I know a lot of words; I just don’t use them in my everyday conversation, thus making it more difficult to incorporate in my essay.
Kaitlyn Stevens Mr. Scott Reed ENGL 0003.001 19 July 2011 Overcoming my distractions Throughout my years of education, I have had to overcome many obstacles. I have found a few distractions along the way that led to me getting off track. What has distracted me in my college nursing experience is having too much homework at one time and not being able to manage my time well enough. On top of all my homework, I also had to learn to manage my athletics in with getting my work done on time. After all my homework and cheer activities are completed, my personal entertainment was also a big challenge for me to overcome.
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.
“A Minnesota teacher of seventh and ninth grades says that she has to spend extra time in class editing papers and must 'explicitly' remind her students that is is not acceptable to use text slang and abbreviations in writing” (Cullington 89). Also, “many complain that because texting does not stress the importance of punctuation, students are neglecting it in their formal writing” (Cullington 89). These points are valid, but the evidence is limited because it is based on a few personal experiences, rather then a large study with much more research.
Say Hello to my Little Study Buddy Most adults will arguably tell someone college is ‘the time of your life’ but what they forget to mention is the hardships and stresses it actually brings. There is a whole new curriculum, much harder than a high school one, and for most people their first time living on their own. One must learn more material in a shorter length of time from difficult assignments that will require a majority of one’s leisure time. The harsh reality is that students without parental supervision will unfortunately want to waste their free time doing more entertaining things than cramming their brains with gratuitous amount of new statistics, formulas and information. Students will usually opt out of performing homework
In my essay I will examine three things I need to do to change my attitude on my education these things are; go to totoring, study, and stop procrastinating. I am doing exceptionally well in all my classes except for one Ms. Boykin’s Algebra II class. It is my fault because I don’t wake up early enough to go to tutoring in the mornings. My strategy for the 2nd semester is to study and to stay on top of make up work when I am absent and go to tutoring to get help on things I don’t understand. Since high school I’ve been doing poorly in math but, I’m not going to let it get the best of me and I will do what ever is necessary in order to pass and graduate in June.
Our world is changing everyday and we also have to change to catch up with the modernization of it and to make our country better. If I could change one important thing about mycountry, I will change our method of teaching in education. Education is very crucial to everyone and every country. The future of one country depends on the youth and the youth depends on the education. In my country, students still have to dotoo much homework so they have less time to play and take part in other interesting activities.
It is better to try and fail then to never try at all. I think that this quote means that sometimes in life we have to try things several times before we actually succeed, you might feel humiliated and just want to give up but you don’t you just keep trying. It might not come to you in a day maybe not even a week but eventually if you just keep trying you will succeed, and when you finally do succeed you appreciate success much more than if it had come so easily. I have had to try things over and over before I got it right. For example, math is very hard for me, I need lots of help, so when I am doing math homework I have to always double check my work and when I can look in the back of the book to see if Im correct it helps and I feel really good when I get the correct answer, also when I am at cheer I practice my tumbling, and when I finally land it properly after many attempts it makes me feel so happy and it feels really good to know that I didn't give up, even though it took me many try’s.
We sat down and worked out a solution we ordered a new computer, we only hope this helps us get more college work done and in a timely manner leaving us with less stress. Loosing days at work to go to school has put a huge struggle on me even though I know school is important. But having less money come in is a huge stressor that I have not found a way to deal with except telling myself that after I get an education I will get a better job. After sitting down and thinking very hard about this I have developed my action plan. One big thing that seems to help people deal with stress is going to the gym.
