Instead of separating individual pages by a dash, the assignment should simply be listed pages 604-649 written out long hand. Doing so would minimize confusion about the assignment. In addition to the grammar, I had to write five different types of essays during the semester. The class was given about an hour and a half to complete each essay. The first essay took me an extra 30
After spending at least five-six hours on my concept map I think I could have done just as good a job with two pieces of paper and a pencil in a quarter of the time. This is coming from someone with over 35 years of computer experience. Yes, this view may seem extremely pessimistic but the TeachThought staff agrees in their recent article when they state, “The unfortunate reality here is that in lieu of significant progress in how technology is used in the learning process, significant work remains to do a better job understanding how these tools can function to increase depth of knowledge, learning curiosity, and critical thinking skills.” (TeachThought Staff, 2013). I feel that there is still so much work that needs to be done to figure out exactly how to put into practice such programs to make it worth the time to have my students use it. There are some really fantastic ideas in the 50 Uses for Inspiration and Kidspiration article (http://www.uwstout.edu/soe/profdev/50uses.cfm) and I could potentially see using Inspiration in my high school English class in a number of ways.
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. Something that I have learned throughout this year that has also helped my writing is the Papa Square. I have never been introduced to a Papa Square in any of my other classes, so at first it was difficult for me to properly use it. Once I learned how to properly use it, it allowed me to better strengthen my claims by helping me gain a greater understanding of the sources I was using. Although my writing has improved in many areas, I still find that I struggle with writing my works cited page on my own.
b. Joe needs to develop comprehension skills as the NYSAA results indicate that he could not answer 5 simple “wh” questions about characters in a short story. B. Two annual goals: That relate to Joe’s Reading: a. Within one year, given functioning level material, Joe will read aloud accurately and fluently, using phonics and context clues to determine pronunciation and meaning in passages or texts on his independent reading level. Joe will read orally at 40 – 50 words per minute.
The only reason I would have “ten hours of homework” is if I put off a big project until the very last minute. I did have issues with procrastinating, but I am learning and adapting slowly. It is very soothing to know that the teachers truly do not want to any students to fail and try their best to help students with time management. They frequently remind you of deadlines and give you basic outlines for bigger projects. They also keep in mind that students have other outside obligations.
High school classrooms generally have about thirty to thirty- five students to a college class size that may exceed one hundred students in any given lecture. It is crucial to develop good study habits in high school as college is unforgiving if you do not study properly. You may study about two to three hours a week in high school versus studying two to three hours per each hour of college class. You are expected to read and discuss assignments in your high school classes but in college, no one will be there to hold your hand so you must take notes, review notes and material regularly, and when you are assigned reading and writing, it may or may not be addressed in class so it is up to you to read, understand, and do the assignments accordingly. High school is mandatory and usually free where as college is voluntary and expensive.
The purpose for that is usually to improve student’s critical thinking while giving them an opportunity to express their opinions and ideas. Last semester, for my psychology class, I needed to write eight to ten pages on behavioral science. It took me a month to get it done, but if it wasn’t because of that paper, I would end up getting a C in the class rather than an A. I’m sure that I will have to write a lot of essays on different topics for my classes during my college life. Therefore, it is important for me to practice and learn as much skills as I can. History has been transferred to us mostly by people’s writings.
And for thirteen years our only excuse to watch the news was in the hopes of school being closed or at least a two hour delay. Now, after graduation, there will be no one to tell us to brush our teeth before bed, to change into our pajamas, or to clean our rooms. It is our job to remember the lessons we’ve learned throughout this long journey. I, myself, have learned a lot from my four short years in high school. I learned that a little hard work goes a long way, I learned not to allow things to stress me out, and I learned that the experiences I’ve come across throughout my journey will always be more valuable than the actual destination.
Improving Quality of Study Time Improving your quality of study time can be easier than you think. Many students view this task as a very hard and complicated process, when in reality it can be done with short easy techniques. Throughout the years of school kids must attend, they learn and adapt ways to make studying easier and faster. Although these ways may make it faster for the student it may mean they do not learn as much or as in depth as other students. There are techniques for before, during, and after reading that everyone should incorporate into their schedule.
What I like from him that he always use different approaches when he explained subject matter which was a lot easier than what was taught in my school. For example, he tried to teach how to divide a polynomial equation by using factorization instead of finding the greatest common divisor and least common multiple. Therefore I could understand things faster and it really saved my time so I can use the spare time to do anything else. There’s one time in my senior year that I was really both depressed and frustrated. It’s around 3 weeks before my final exam when there were a lot of assignments and
