Everfi Course Reflection During the course of everfi I learned a lot. My knowledge of financial literacy grew as well as my skill of responsibility. Everfi has also shown different ways I can help my future or make it become easier in general. Whether it is unexpected accidents or just trying to earn a few extra dollars every month, the tips I learned are going to be useful.
This was my first time taking GSW 1120, a course in which I learned to successfully develop, examine, communicate and argue a thesis statement, by integrating the learning outcomes identified in the course. The initial assignment asked that we find a book to read and perform a critique that identified a current trend, person or event. Since substance abuse and addiction is one of nation’s fastest growing problems and AA 12-step recovery has been the traditional method of treatment I chose, AA: Not the Only Way: Your One Stop Resource Guide to 12-step Alternatives. Anchorage, Alaska: Capolo Press, 2008, a book written by a woman, Melanie Solomon, who battled addiction for 12 years. Solomon explains in her story that she was addicted to pills,
I think the most challenging courses I took this year was AP Lang but not because of the work or reading but because I did not give me 100% in that class. I think that is something I did wrong and I should have changed that as fast as I
Over the next three semesters, I will be a part of the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority and the Gators Walk for the Children’s Heart Foundation. I will also be an AMSA director and will be employed by the University of Florida Call Center.
From the first day that APUSH began, a question that has plagued us is how do we honor those that moved this country in a positive direction, without forgetting their failures. We tend to reduce our nation’s most famous historical figures to either heroes or villains, but history has taught us that no person is wholly good, and no person is wholly bad.
After touring the campus with the AAT program from SPC, I know in my heart that LCU is where God is calling me to be. I went to a private school until my freshmen year and it was the best thing my parents could have done for me. I loved
I hope you are doing well, and I hear the new practice is starting very well. I don't know if you remember me, I am a former student of yours from your last exercise science class at Ohio State. I am graduating in December with my BS in HPNES, and was curious about the opportunities at UAPPC. I have looked through the website and talked with Emily Martini about the work you and your wife are doing. It seems very innovative and promising. I'm you have the same enthusiasm for your practice as you had for teaching. I know you mentioned in your last class that you were looking for students after graduation to help out with this practice. If you have any current or future opportunities that are or will be available I am eager to discuss them with
Learning about the history of the United States is an incredibly valuable journey. As a part of this learning process students better understand society and how it works, and can more fully discern different mindsets seen through history and how that is significant. History is also important because in every generation of students there are future leaders, presidents, fathers, mothers, etc. These people need to be properly educated in the past so they can see how to live their own lives to avoid the mistakes of people in similar roles in the past; and also to see what worked well for them. Before APUSH, I struggled with many academic skills. I never understood the value of reading a textbook word for word. I couldn’t see connections between
Apollo Career Center partnership with MRC in 2016 through 2017 has been excellent. Apollo works with Brandon Fisher from allen county health department here in lima ohio. Brandon has helped us and MRC us and MRC grow and continue growing with us seniors involved. He has given us his own study material for FEMA test allowing us to participate as patients in lima memorial hospital evacuation drill. These opportunity giving us students insight of how things work and how things are ran and how much planning and preparing it takes.words can't express our thanks it is something we will remember long after this competition.
The UNMC summer research that I was able to do was in their Pharmacology and Experimental Neuroscience department. The main focus of the department was analyzing the spread of HIV in the brain and its interactions with the Blood Brain Barrier. Skills that I picked up at the lab were
The APS program in conjunction with our high school is looking for applicants for a student run research program. Some of these qualifiers I have met already (being recommended for the program from a previous science teacher), but I will now elaborate on my scientific background and exactly what I have to offer. To begin, I have a fundamental understanding in most if not all fields of science and can infer the things that I do not know. This includes such fields of study as basic geology, botany, and astronomy. Continuing on, in high school I have taken Honors level classes wherever possible. Such a class was honors physics, and most of the things taught I picked up easily. Newtonian physics, and some simple quantum mechanics to name a few.
This is Evelyn Lilley, a former ABI teacher, and I am writing to ask a favor regarding my verification of my employment with ABI. I had been searching for a while to locate you. Your profile is awesome—you are doing well, and your background as an educator and scholar are most impressive—an earned doctorate, Wow! I got your information from the Internet.
A defining experience in my life occurred during the summer following my first year of high school. I had the opportunity to travel with several members of my church youth group to the city of San Salvador, El Salvador. Our purpose was to serve the community and the orphanage at which we were staying. I did not realize at the time that what I learned on that missions trip would change me. It would change everything about me, and it would affect me for the rest of my life. This monumental experience is the experience which I believe will have the greatest impact on my academic work and goals at CCU, and there are several reasons why. Every morning of the trip, we designated approximately an hour to spend reading the bible and communing with
Throughout my classes I learned a lot about promoting development and learning in young children. I learned that it is very important to understand the children in your classroom because as a teacher it will be my job to create environments that are healthy, respectful, supportive, and challenging for each child. Depending on where I feel my class is at I can create environments or activities that include physical, cognitive, social and Emotional skills. Throughout CCAC I learned about children with disabilities and I now feel more confident about making accommodations to allow all children to be involved. This will allow children the children to explore and learn in a safe fun environment.
This course was not what I was expecting it to be, but I was very happy with the information that I took away from it. I am a Patrol Lieutenant with the Knoxville Police Department and mainly work the very poor East part of town. This area is about 75% African-American and the residents have adopted me as one of their own and I have made it a mission to try to help improve the area as much as I can. This course has taught me several things that I can use to help this needy community.
