Summary Response Amadeo Constanzo is the author of “Do You Really Think You Are a Good Writer?” and he believes that if you are in a remedial class English then “instead of wasting time and energy on negative thoughts, use the energy and time to improve your writing” or other skills. Constanzo supports remedial classes because even the best athletes train to be better just like a writer practices to become a better writer. I very much agree with Constanzo because the majors I currently have would eventually deal a lot with presentation documents. I am also in remedial English and I know that it would help me becoming a better writer. Benjamin Franklin once said “If a man empties his purse into his head no one can take it away from him.

Creative minds and critcal thinking | Famous Thinkers | PHL/458 | | Edward McClendon | 7/11/2013 | Facilitator: Dane Scott Schnarr | Famous Thinkers When deciding which famous thinkers to discuss in this paper it was easy to pick individuals that stood out above all. Researching individuals in which there is familiarity was not a challenge so the decision was based on interest. William “Bill” Gates always has been an individual of impressive interest because of his integrity portrayed in the media. Reading and hearing about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through history books and on television does not do him justice. Reading the words written by Dr. King piqued the interest to understand it directly from his point of view.
Being the oldest, I have had the opportunity to live life in the fast lane and experience at life first hand. Each birth of my siblings has been an important experience. Each has brought a new challenge, and with every challenge I have molded. I have taken these unexpected challenges and have created a greater insight on life. Each event and decision that these five wonderful gifts have brought me, have created me.
WR 065 30075 Character Essay Although Americans are born with the right to make decisions for themselves whether good or bad, this doesn’t necessarily mean we all make the right ones. This has been an issue since the beginning of time. Throughout our lives the decisions we make will ultimately decide who we are as a person. In Arthur Miller’s book The Crucible he uses the character John Proctor to teach many valuable lessons about our lives. He shows how Proctor himself survives till the bitter end.
40 years of experiential knowledge that has shaped her beliefs and actions, is shared in such a way that similarly to Ikuko Tanaka's experience with the head baker, "they have become part of my own tacit knowledge base" (Harvard Business Review, p. 28, 1998). This knowledge then goes from tacit to explicit as I am tasked to create a syllabus and teach a class within the ministry's institute. As a consultant working for an organization that develops proprietary software and sells it to government, state and educational facilities, daily usage of an internal shared Knowledge Base requires that tacit knowledge is communicated by the product development team as support issues arise. This knowledge is then made explicit as the information becomes a permanent part of the KB. "Tacit knowledge tends to reside within the heads of knowers, whereas explicit knowledge is usually contained within tangible or concrete media."
I chose the article BECOMING A CRITIC OF YOUR THINKING by Dr. Linda Elder and Dr. Richard Paul. I felt the message was more straightforward and relatable than some of the other articles I read. This article struck me as a “how-to guide” to improve one’s critical thinking, which is something anyone could benefit from even if one is already a good thinker. I liked how the article first asks the reader how much they really know about their own daily thinking. It’s an interesting question, because as the article also states, most people probably think that “it just happens in their minds automatically,” and that we probably, for the most part, “take our thinking for granted.” I know I am guilty on both counts.

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.
For the most part, I agree with the overall findings of the MBTI. The portion that I do not agree with is the individual bullets that show my preferences. I do feel as if I am an Extrovert, that I am very intuitive and that I prefer thinking to feeling: however, I never thought of myself as moderately judging at all but rather quite the opposite. This information will enable me to be successful as a counselor by reinforcing with me the attributes that I have.
