CWPA, NCTE, and NWP claim in “Framework for Success in Postsecondary Writing,” that “Habits of mind refers to ways of approaching learning that are both intellectual and practical and that will support students’ success in a variety of fields and disciplines” (122). At the Recreation Center, responsibility and persistence are habits of the mind that most students apply. Persistence, which the authors describes, is the “ability to sustain interest in and attention to short and long-term projects,” that pushes these students to come back throughout their education, regardless of how high their workload has piled up (122). When approaching college, students find it much more difficult to schedule exercising while balancing out their college life. There are exams to study for, deadlines to meet, and expectations to live up to.
It is very important for a coach to have a philosophy about what he or she wishes to accomplish and what they want their athletes to accomplish along with the winning. Although the benefits of teaching and coaching can be questioned by many all it takes is that former or current athlete showing up one day and saying, “Coach thanks for all you have done for me, I couldn’t have done it without you.” and your ready to get going all over again. The levels of coaching that I hope to coach someday will be elementary all the way up to High School. I need to be around our club wrestling team at a young age, this will help teach the kids the things they need to know at an early age. It will also help build a powerhouse team by the time they get to high school.
At the end of the day, the college athletes are involved in this situation because a love once their drive to compete (Collegian Staff). Once money is too involved, that love and passion will be focused elsewhere (Collegian Staff). I am also in agreement with this statement as well. I feel that once money is involved, the focus would no longer be solely on schoolwork. The main focus would then become getting the “job” done
College football is important to the athletes, the students, and the university, and should not be banned. It allows the athletes the opportunity to get a college education, but more importantly for the athletes who never considered college at all. While striving towards a college degree, the sport also helps the athletes to have a better life, learn responsibility, discipline, and in a team-based environment, aiming for one common goal while playing a game that they love; the game that started the rest of their lives. The team also unifies the
Coversely, some people are lucky enough to be part of a competition. Perhaps those who watch a sporting event and those who compete in it share the same enthusiasm for the activity. However, an athlete must train long and hard to do well in the skills required for his craft. I
Veronica Orantes Professor Andrew English 28 15 January 2014 Athletes struggle towards Education Are college sports taking away the importance of an athlete’s education? Schools with a more well-known athletic department put more of an emphasis on a student’s athletics rather than on a student’s education. Being an athlete in college is time consuming. College athletes usually have a time schedule for games and practices that are mandatory for them to attend. It may cause them to miss classes and even lose focus on their education due to exhaustion.
The benefits of this are pretty obvious. Spending so much time working out and practicing can get a jock an athletic scholarship to a university. For the nerds, however, their studying can get them an academic scholarship to a university. So either way, what you devote your time to the most will be your strong point. For the jock, sports… And for the nerd, studying… Popularity is another difference in between the two.
Do you think that athletes deserve the advantages they receive from the university? And so on. These questions were asked to students that ranged from athletes themselves to regular students, When athletes were asked about their opinion the answers, at no surprise, were greatly similar. Garrius Adams, point guard for the University of Miami, claimed that “being a student athlete takes hard work and dedication, which is something many don’t understand.” He went on saying that early practices, long
I know I have what it takes to be a student and member of your campus, Florida State University. I have been active all throughout my life in my own academics, organizations and school athletics, as well as holding leadership in my community. I have been a team captain, held leadership roles with school clubs, and also represented my fellow students as an officer for my school’s Student Government. Every since I was young, I have loved being involved in athletics. As I grew older, I became more aware of the importance of leaders on sports teams.
Without setting goals most people would not pursue their dreams because they see no reward in the end for having to go through some hard times. With this attitude, success for many would be out of reach, but with the idea of setting goals for self motivation, everyone can be successful with hard work. In my life I make sure to set goals and strive to achieve them but even though I may not reach all of them I can say to myself in the end that I have tried my hardest and have accomplished something along my journey. I believe I need this scholarship because it is a big step in achieving my goal of going to college and getting a career started in chemical engineering. With this scholarship that goal would start to become more of a reality because I would then have the financing for my college education and I would only have supply and apply myself to gain the education.
