In this essay I am going to explain key influences on the learning process of individuals. I am doing a BTEC extended diploma in health and social care right now at college and I am enjoying it so far. I did As levels last year in applied science, media studies and communication and culture and did like the subjects which made me go off track I didn’t attend lessons and my attendance dropped poorly. However when I came to pick up my results and I didn’t get the grades that I needed I realized that I need to put my head down because I don’t want to end up doing a boring/retail job all my life. My career goal is to become a radiographer which my dad first introduced to me and I found rather interesting, but my plan B is social work.
Year round school is also essential for teachers as well as students. Teachers, and students wont feel burnt out by April or May, making the production of both higher. In the following paragraphs I will tell anyone who reads this that the smartest decision is to be for year round school. (Year-Round schools Look Better All the Time, Pg. 1-2) A traditional school year would have a 180-day school year with short breaks for the holidays followed by a 12-week summer break.
The ups and downs of learning teams Nicole Mills COM100 November 4, 2013 Alan Chapple The ups and downs of learning teams When I think of working in a team or group, I think back to high school group projects where I got stuck doing the work. Working in a team is not always easy, but the experience is worth it in the end. My first class at University of Phoenix was GEN 200 and my first experience in a learning team. I was a little resistant at first, I could not totally accept that the determination of my grade would consist of individual and team assignments. I prefer to work alone because I know what I am capable of and know I will produce quality work on time.
I felt that I enjoyed writing this paper more than any other. It was research and I was able to observe. With this revised paper I used notes and comments left in tried to adjust according to the notes and make use of additional research to provide more evidence, and support to the structure of my paper. For being the first English class to take in years, I can say that I did not put much effort nor did I truly care to, English or writing has never been my strong suit or anything I enjoyed. I can say that my writing improved slightly I have a better understanding of rhetoric and the structure
My ninth grade was pretty cool until the last week of school I let my mouth get the best of me and said some things that I really should’ve not said and because I did I earned the next semester at the alternative school. When school started back I was very sad because I had to go to the “bad” school with all the “bad” kids and I was very nervous. Once I got there it was pretty cool and I really enjoyed it because the classes were smaller and you got more one on one help. My grades went up and my mom decided that I should spend the rest of the year there, which really messed me up because they did not offer any elective classes only the basics . My eleventh grade year was also a disaster because of the struggle of passing my biology state test and I was really distracted and just wanted to go back to the alternative school but my mom and the principle would not send me back.
My writing has improved this semester tremendously. I feel I have improved on, writing a strong clear thesis statement, organizing my thoughts, and not using run-on sentences. The first useful technique in writing an essay is a strong thesis statement. Before I started ENC91, my introductions where not clear therefore my thesis statements weren’t strong. Without a strong thesis you cannot have
For the first time teachers are going to be getting paid more, they will finally get a salary in which their line of work calls for. A teacher’s job will no longer be a small town last resort but instead it will be a profession; with that calls for a level of responsibility in the teachers who don’t perform to standard because they have a guaranteed position. College is finally affordable, from raising the maximum Pell Grant to working with schools to settle rising college tuition cost; these are all life-changing improvements. What a breath of fresh air it is to actually see the changes a President talks about. Once again, the visionary, that is, President Barack Obama has brought to Americans what we lacked and needed most; hope.
A simple choice like that can make a total difference in whether they really learned something or if they cheated themselves. I believe the students can decide if they want to succeed, and a lot of times after graduating high school they might become more mature and realize education is the key and be behind like they did in high school. Daniel Bruno's examples in the paper were very insightful. They gave you a better understanding of what he was talking about, rather than having to guess. His example of Thomas Jefferson's quote was a very good example because Thomas Jefferson is a very inspirational figure for the U.S. and people will take his words to heart.
They could also go and learn a new language or tour a different country. “Learning a foreign language is a skill you’ll have for the rest of your life and one that employers find very attractive” (McKay). Taking a gap year will help the students gain many personal skills that they will use in the long run. Did you know that many academic benefits come with taking a gap year? “Gap year students show a clear pattern of having a higher GPA than would otherwise have been predicted, and the positive effect lasts over all four years” (“Data”).
Most of us have grown from this experience, making us better candidates for our future. Those of us that stand here today shown the potential to go off and do great things. As the days and weeks passed, we measured it in semesters, and later in years as we moved from being freshmen, to becoming sophomores who thought they had it all figured out. By the time we reached our junior year, we were sure that we were prepared to take over for the graduating seniors, and we couldn't wait to "rule the school." Personally, being the theatre kid that I am, couldn’t wait to take over the roles of my successors.
