Since the way I approach my research it helps cover a lot of ground in limited amount of time giving me time to focus on other issues in my life like work and my kids. I am also able to do multiple assignments in a short amount of time so that I can finish them on time, hand them in and receive a good grade on the assignment. The way COMM 150 has affected the way I think about academic integrity and giving the proper credit to the ideas of others is that those people are helping me by publishing their work, so they deserve the credit for doing the hard labor that I did not have to do. What I mean by that is if I put in the time and hard work to put together something and someone else used my work and did not acknowledge me as being a help source I would get frustrated and upset. So I have no problem giving credit to where credit is due.
Whenever I feel as though there are constraints present, whether mental or physical, writing always seems to give me the ability to clear my head and organize my thoughts, which is what eventually led to writing becoming my main method of stress relief; along with playing music. I have even begun to broaden my horizons a little bit more now, as I have combined my love for both writing and music into a third talent; writing
How music affects us is connected through our brains neurochemistry, our mental associations with the music, our culture, and our spirit, which are all mentioned in this scientific journey. Through this journey the writer perplexed me with scientific and musical vocabulary and redundant examples, but at the same time, I was fascinated with his description of the anatomy of the brain and why we enjoy the music we prefer listening to. I must admit that I had high expectations for this book because of my appreciation for music and what a significant role it plays in my life. However, when I began reading, I found the beginning of the book to be very abstruse. Knowing the definitions of pitch, timbre, meter and loudness, to name a few, do not help me enjoy music more than what I already do.
Being able to confide was not only relieving, but there was also a sense of comfort for the future in it. It also allowed me to learn from the past in ways that I might otherwise not have. To reread past entries and see how much I’ve grown since then, gave me such a feeling of accomplishment that I never want to stop writing. I still continue to write in a journal every day, and don’t plan to give it up anytime soon. I believe that writing has helped me in numerous ways, and I would recommend it to anyone who needs to release some stress.
These characters made a huge impact on the novel because it made this book possible which was a great experience reading. Genre The genre of the novel “The Summoning” is paranormal romance, Horror fiction, Urban Fantasy and Mystery. I have never read a book with all these genres for me so it was new and I did enjoy the experience. Recommendation I would recommend this book to teens ages 13 and up just because of the content and language given in some scenes. But other than that I have really loved this book mainly because of the mystery behind the story.
Prejudice was a good topic to talk about and to be recognized, and Battle Royal fit the toll perfectly. I had the idea of prejudice, but I was able to elaborate on it more with the help of my classmates and professor. I would also like to acknowledge and thank my friend Christopher Martin for reading over my paper and giving helpful insights. I always find that a peer knows how to understand what one is trying to say or help to make sense of it. He offered a lot of help and was willing to make notes on my paper to attempt at helping me make my paper the best it could possibly be.
I too am of mixed race and I love to play the guitar, even though I may not be very good at it. I find inspiration in Jimi’s perseverance and his ability to break down barriers. Drugs and addiction is something that has taken way too many talented people away from us far too early. The one thing that we all have to remember is that we are all humans and flawed. We must celebrate each others accomplishments and not try and tear one another down for making choices that we simply do not
Victoria Peterson Discourse community Ethnography paper Professor Dennis March 23, 2015 Have you ever been among people who are very much like you? That it does not matter what differences you have you all have a lot more in common. In this paper, I will prove that I entered the discourse community of high school band by acquiring content knowledge, establishing my credibility, and learning to sway other members of the community. Writing this paper gives me confidence because it shows that I already have experience joining a discourse community. It also gives you, my instructor, and you, my classmates, a chance to know more about me.
My Writing Goals This semester, I would like to go above and beyond the knowledge I have obtained in the past years, and explore my inner creativity as a writer. Writing has been a true passion of mine for as long as I can remember. It has never ceased to amaze me the places an author can take you, the way your imagination can run wild, or the different characters you encounter just by the use of their words. Although there are many ways I can improve my writing skills, I have chosen three goals to work towards that I feel I can benefit from the most. For starters, my first goal would be to expand my vocabulary.
Internet helped William to enjoy studying and to focus. The program Quizlet stimulated all four objectives in learning language writing, reading, speaking and listening, which helped him transfer the material from his short term memory to his long term memory faster. As the data shows, his grades have improved. I also see the possibility of using assistive technology with students who don’t have disabilities to improve their performance. If I can gather more data and experiences, I can present results to the school that can impact school improvement, faculty development and student learning.
