Now our main conflict was “Should Lizzy had gone along with Lem and Joshua?”. I thought that she should have gone because she would have been killed if she stayed. My mom said that she should have stayed to hang with Ms. Julia to get information out of her. We read on and my mom changed her mind because she saw that Lizzy got away. This was our last conflict during the story.
My fear that student's wouldn't take me seriously lead me to make choices that were far from loving. The result of those poor decisions with students meant that as they walked into my classroom this year, I was fearful. I decided to take Hawley's advice and use my head, heart, and spirit to fix this fast. Needless to say when I read
(-3 points). In small group communication, theories are useful because they help you explain communication behaviors and/or predict the outcome of communication practices. For example, during Addison’s freshman year of college, she knew she’d never make it through four years without a solid group of like-minded friends. In high school, her speech class briefly covered symbolic convergence theory. Addison used this theory as she tried out different school clubs asking questions about the group’s past events, traditions and so on to find out common themes.
Melinda thought there was something wrong with her, like she was useless. She had a lot of trouble making friends and when she did make a friend her depression drove them away. Melinda's depression even caused her to cut herself and contemplate committing suicide. Melinda's depression could have been avoided if she had learned to overcome her past earlier. Next, if you don't overcome your past, you will never be able to get on with your life.
People will also be angry once they find out the secrets that have been kept for one’s incentive. Pain will be one of the repercussions of the secrets kept hidden based on one’s impulse. One example was when Caroline was debating whether or not to send David a picture of Phoebe on the day of celebrating her confirmation. While she’s pondering what to do, she starts to think about how he may hurt her the same way he hurt Caroline, “without even knowing it happened” (234). Caroline, as far away as she may be from Norah and David, did suffer because of David’s secret.
Although I hadn’t yet become comfortable writing about my past during the first few quarters of school, I enjoyed writing for academic growth. I enjoyed analyzing and debating the issues, reflecting on books we had read, or just journaling my thoughts about the day. It wasn’t until my second year at Evergreen that I was able to revisit some of my past experiences and childhood memories by writing a required memoir for one of my classes. This process was very difficult, and I found myself re-writing over and over again. The experience, although very painful has sparked a desire in me to tell my life
There are many people who have effected me in a positive way throughout my life; however my eighth grade English teacher Ms.Gentilini had a outstanding positive effect on me. Mustafa Kemal Ataturk once said, “A good teacher is like a candle it consumes itself to light the way for others.” Ms.Gentilini was not any ordinary English teacher. She taught us many writing skills that I still use today. She always kept her students interested, and made them want to learn more. She has a compelling voice I will never forget .I remember Ms.Gentilini being a dedicated ,motivating, patient and intelligent person that challenged me to better myself every day.
After that, my mother who was always so harsh about education and coming on top changed her point of view. Instead of saying "Study, try harder." She started saying "What am I going to do with the certificates if you are gone?" This started to make me lazy. I was really attracted to this easy life and didn't think about future much.
Writing and I had this crazy type of relationship I loved to write but once it was a due date I wanted to procrastinate and never wanted to get it done on time but the problem was writers block. During my high school years it was a confusing time because I did not use the right grammar at the right time and my English teacher was a pain. She was a mean lady name Ms. Johnson who was hard on me because I had so much potential and I did not show it as often as I should of. Me not working hard enough as I should of I did not learn the proper tools in writing. 10th grade I had left my old to school to transfer to a new school and I had another teacher name Ms. Carroll who made my year a living hell.
