My parents push me to be the best that I can be, which sometimes I don’t care what they are saying, don’t they understand that 9th grade is hard? And then I read that quote again, yeah yesterday was a lot easier than today but then is today going to be easier than tomorrow? I can’t say, I just have to know that with each passing day I read that quote I know there is NO easy day, unless I make it that
One of the biggest and most obvious goals I have set would be graduating high school. This should be a pretty easy goal to accomplish but I do need to watch myself in some of my classes. Some of the big things I need to do to meet this goal are improving my neatness, not being lazy and actually turning assignments, and trying to study as much as I can. The hardest of these will unquestionably be turning in my homework. I’ve always had a hard time turning in any homework and this is the year I need to start doing it.
yet i find my self fighting harder and thing faster to make sure that i do learn the answer as fast as i can. i try and try and alot of the time i feel i am doing everthing right but then there aare our timer when we have our fight s and i feel like i am faliing but this feeling is incorrect it is only a reflex feeling. what it truly is when we doo have fight and we don't dsee eye to eye i feel that the space betwwen us grow. i have over this time gotten comfortable to the point of being able to handle the miles between us and withthis comfort they seem to shrink to nothing more than a few feet yet when we fight they grow and grow and i feel your preasence
In Margaret Wente’s Globe and Mail column “Inside the Entitlement Generation” she seems to strongly generalize that the greater part of this generation of students is “lazy” and want to succeed but with only putting in the least amount of effort. Wente appears to argue that childhood adolescence is expanding, which as professor Gibney says, refers to young adults who are not fully equipped for the realities of adulthood. Wente’s statement that this generation of students feels entitled because they have been told all their lives that they are smart and “never pushed too hard” also seems to support her argument of expansion. Wente also appears to indicate that the “entitlement generation” is more “adolescent” like in their behavior, beliefs, and ambitions. For example, when students don’t get the mark they feel they deserve they strongly “object” or as Professor Coates says, they get “mad”, instead of reviewing their mistakes and looking for ways to improve it (which some might consider “adult-like” behavior).
Making it on your own At times people tend to work well while they are under pressure. To others they simply must be under pressure to get work done and give their full effort. In her article In Praise of the F Word, Mary Sherry argues “Flunking as a regular policy has just as much merit today as it did two generations ago. We must review the threat of flunking and see it as it really is- a positive teaching too.” By making it clear to students that flunking can definitely be a result of them not putting in the time and effort in assuring they pass their class will make them more determined to learn and earn their good grades, it will also help stop those students who choose not to even try in their classes. Also by making students fear failure it will not only motivate them
Adam Yang Professor Anderson English103A-01 January 22, 2012 Tentative Thesis In a society where the English language is the key to success, and to higher education, there are those who still struggle in the language and as of it, they will need extra support. How can we look at the language today and say that because of it we are different and are not the same as we were so many years ago? We are human and have the ability to adapt and assimilate into new ideas and area we have never seen before and therefore that is where our greatest knowledge of language lies. In Rodriguez autobiography the Hunger of Memory he believes that people must change and assimilate in order to be successful and to leave the language and culture they once grew up in, to have a better chance in education. In my own experience with seeing those who
Julia had this advantages and that’s why she learned faster and better than me. In conclusion, I understand now the importance to learn a second language and how it can affect you if you are planning to live in the U.S. Julia and I had a lot of difference in the way we learned like family, ages and schools but the most important thing is that both of us never give
At that moment .I felt that there was still potential in me and I had wasted away by not working hard to overcome hardships, not only in school but also in daily life. His speech helps me to grow internally and is a key to my success. It gives me some hope and for that reason, I was able to stand up with dignity and advance towards a better life. For the rest of my junior year I strived to work diligently without any excuses. And by the end of the year my grades improved by several points with some A’s and fewer B’s.
The IB program has made me realizes how important it is to push yourself and become a well-educated and well-rounded individual. I feel my cumulative GPA does not accurately represent my potential and desire for academic success. For a great deal of my education I did not take academic success seriously. While I have always been enrolled in accelerated classes such as ALPS (SALTA as it is now know) in primary school and Honors and AP in the beginning of High school, I had the mindset that grades and were not important and all that mattered was passing because I was smart. I believed that getting straight C’s was no different than straight A’s.
