Procrastinating homework is never a good idea. Even though you may not want to do it, it is always a better idea to get the homework done and over with. After putting of my Frankenstein paper for quite sometime, I have learned many lessons. I have learned to get my homework done in a timely manner, plan ahead, and be more thorough with my work. After procrastinating a lot of my homework this year, I have learned now, for second semester that I need to step it up a little bit.
My fifth grade year was the year it all began. I was in middle school and this was the year we needed to pick up more responsibility, to not rely on parents and teachers as much as previous years. The new responsibilities were great until I was required to pick a book of my choice, read it and do a report. My memory is not the best, so I don’t recall the book I chose, but I do remember that I did not do very well, not remembering details and events that happened in it. I used the back cover to do most of it and the teacher, Mr. Bougie, knew it.
My experiences in English class and my attitude towards it have fluctuated throughout my high school years. Depending on my teacher and my current interests is the way I approached whether or not I enjoyed reading and writing. As a kid, I never liked either English or writing, but growing up I eventually gravitated towards it. It became my favorite subject and I even liked to free write but I still hated the literature section of it. By the time I was in high school I was put into a college prep English class.
Once I was done with speech therapy, there was something else wrong that my teacher also noticed & informed my parents that I had a learning disability. This led them to decide to put me in special Ed classes. I had a hard time reading, spelling, writing full on sentences, and paragraphs. I also had a hard time with grammar & comprehension as well as punctuation; and to this day I still have these problems. Although I still have and always well have a learning disability, I’ve find that with the technology of today I don’t have too many of these problems that I had back then.
To put off doing something, especially out of carelessness or laziness, this is the definition of procrastinate or more like me. I’m confused to as why I procrastinate so much! It’s out of control. It’s like my teacher gives me the assignment a week before its due and I still wait until the last possible second to get it done. I easily could do it on days that I have no other homework but no.
(Only two points) (First degree, less focused should be a separate paragraph)When I went to college back in 1996, I partied a lot. I was always playing “catch up”, turning in Monday’s assignment on Thursday, always rationalizing when I fell short of an accomplishment. An example was when I tried to transfer to a better school in order to gain admission into medical school and I was not getting accepted. My rationalization was, “That’s okay, and I don’t think I’d like that school anyway”. My grades were always lacking.
Educating Students At-Risk Ed Pol. 535 Instructors: Spring 2013 Teaching is an Evaluation Process Teaching is not easy. I know, there are a million people that would disagree with me and are probably saying; what is so hard about having the summers “off”, paid federal holiday and other hallmark holidays in between, but chances are that these same critics are not teachers. As a teacher I am presented with situations that I am woefully unprepared for and surprises that I am constantly taken aback by. Little to say that not one day is ever the same and to an extent that’s what makes my day a bit more routine of expecting the unexpected.
Through self-change project, I found the main reason is I don’t mange my time very well. For instance, at weekends, I always play games or go outside with friends, and do all the homework at Sundays. Besides, when I do homework, I always check my cell phone or computer. Therefore, these distractions make my time is not enough. Actually, if I have a methodic time management, I will have more time on study and my personal things.
Academically, of course, it was much more difficult. The feel, routine, and flow of college life, however, bore little resemblance to what I had always associated with school. Classes no longer proceeded one after another, and the schedule each day varied.
Nowadays, students are forced to study (“PROBLEMS”). Furthermore, a lot of students study for over 14 hours in average and are very tired (“Ethical”). Sometimes, they are scared of making mistakes because they think that they might get scolded (“Critical Thinking”). However, the worst defect is when students depend on private education. Depending on private education means that an individual cannot digest the information in his or her own way without hearing another person’s explanation.
