Being a part of your Anthropology 110 class has been a privilege. I have learned about so many interesting topics and read so many interesting articles. I believe the work that I have done in your class can be used to my benefits in the future. You have taught me various skills that could be beneficial for me to use for my future career. Since I am trying to become a lawyer or a Private investigator, as for now, I believe that some of the skills I learned from your class can help me excel in one of these careers, that is if I choose to pursue it. In your class, I have learned how to analyze articles, how to observe people and how to interview people. If I were to be a lawyer, these skills could help engage with my clients and interpret their

My first semester as a college freshman is finally coming to an end. This semester has been the start to a new chapter in my life and I am glad to have finally finished my first semester on a high note. Coming into college I never knew what things would be like and how would I adjust. All I knew is that I wanted to succeed and eventually graduate college. The courses I have taken this semester have had big impact on my learning and my future. Assignments that taught skills and lessons to be used in the future. I have learned skills such as being able to collaborate in groups because of projects in ASU 150.
Throughout the English 111 class, my writing ability has grown to meet all of the course outcomes. In this class I was required to analyze fictional texts and make complex claims that matter in an academic contexts and revise them in order to make grammatical sense. For the 1.0 sequence I focused on Night, by Elie Wiesel and Sarah’s Key, written by Tatiana de Rosnay. Short papers 1.1 and 1.2, focused on each book respectively while major paper 1.3 allowed me to back my claim with both of the texts allowing for a larger exchange of ideas. Within the 2.0 sequence I focused mainly on the Poisonwood Bible, penned by Barbra Kingsolver. The short paper I have chosen to focus on for this sequence was 2.2; in which I had to write a letter to a character
This year, AP English 3 has been my favorite class because of the wide variety of topics that we covered and the essay writing skills that we learned. By providing a large educational basis to students' writing, this class expands the learner's ability to communicate in a profesional, educational manner, a skill with which they will use for the rest of their life. As well as scoring eights (on a nine-point scale) on several English papers, the skills that I have grown and nurtured throughout the semester have helped me score fives or sixes on my AP US History essays (on a six-point scale). Through learning how to go in-depth and synthesize a topic, AP English 3 has taught me how to consistently score high grades on AP essays, as well as communicate
During the duration of this class I have learned a lot about native american culture. Reading Antelope Wife, The Indian Killer, The Toughest Indian In The World, and The Lakota Way have allowed me to take away many life lessons. I originally chose to take this class to gain knowledge I could apply and incorporate into my art education and I have gained knowledge that will be very helpful for that. But after taking this course I have also gained a great sum of knowledge that was interesting to learn about and that I can live by in my everyday life.
Through National Honor Society, I was connected with the Literacy Network and was given the opportunity to tutor students at Carson Elementary, a local inner city school. Tutoring at Carson is the most gratifying moment of my week and I always leave feeling that I've made an impact on a child's life.
As our society evolved, my vision of the world has been changing drastically. The biggest change occurred when I came to the U.S. This happened due to fact, that in America I have more opportunities of being in contact with the ever changing technology. Even though, I came to America with a master’s degree technologically, I was behind, because in Mexico, the country in which I grew and was educated, used to have very limited technological advancements for the whole population. Therefore, I learned in America how to use the Internet, e-mailing, texting, and using a smart phone. Of course, Mexico is different today. As a consequence, when I lived in Mexico, my world view was limited to the issues, routines, and traditions of that country. Then, I came to America, believing that this country was genuinely multicultural. Fortunately, dealing with different cultures was not an issue, because my Mexican family is racially mixed, and I learned to appreciate different cultures, since my early childhood.
It was my first day in Mr. Howard’s AP Literature Class. There were approximately thirty of us sitting in rows of six in a dim classroom. Low background music was playing and light projectors beamed colorful bright lights that traveled dizzying paths across the room. I sat beside and chatted with my close friend Andrea about our concerns regarding our new English teacher. Based on our English department’s poor reputation, we were afraid that Mr. Howard would contribute to that conception by being another poor instructor. However, many of our friends, who had him as a teacher during middle school, stated that he was an exceptional teacher. The bell then rang, indicating that passing period had come to an end and Mr. Howard flicked on the lights, muted the music, and began to introduce his course to us. He stated that we would write one or two essays a
I am excited to begin learning in your English 10 Honors class this year. I know this class will give me experience as a writer while challenging me at the same time. Over the summer, I was able to complete a Geography class, bringing my total of college units earned up to six. Personally, the best part of summer vacation was getting to spend time with my family, something irreplaceable by any other event.
In my third semester, I was privileged to attend the course History of Literatures in English: Reading the Canon and Beyond at the same time as when the world celebrated Shakespeare’s 400th anniversary. The focus of this lecture was three of Shakespeare’s tragedies: Hamlet, Othello, and King Lear. Despite having read and analyzed Hamlet in my AP English class, I found it delightsome to partake in a class that focused specifically on the features of Shakespeare’s plays and how they have influenced later generations. The examination of Tom Stoppard’s play Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead underlined the significance of Shakespeare’s impact. As with Hamlet, I had already studied this play during my AP English course; however, I valued reading
For my anthropology participation project I did my field work at a jazz show. For this project I wanted to ask a few basic questions about the jazz music scene. The first one is what is the popularity of jazz as art form? Second, what are the culture benefits for American society received from this art form? Finally what is the important of preserving this form of music? My ideas going in to this project are that jazz music should be preserved and respected, because it is an education art form and American only original music style. I choose this topic for many reasons. The first being my love of jazz music and being I have never been to a local jazz performance. The second is that me as a musician wanted to educate myself on American
I am sitting in humanities class, looking up at the drab posters telling me what similes and alliterations are for probably the thousandth time. I start to feel drowsy and put my head on my desk. I then feel a tiny smack on the side of my face. I look up groggily and see a tiny ball of white paper on my desk. I pick it up and look around the room for the person who threw the tiny projectile. I see my friend Daniel grinning maliciously. He writes something down on a pad of paper and shows it to me. I read Paper Wars.
In this week’s reflection assignment, we were required to watch two videos. The first being on the SKS trigger job and the second covered the Mosin trigger job. The video gave step by step instructions as well as additional insight and tips on completing this projects.
When I got my class schedule for this year I realize my request for CE English Twelve went through. I was excited and nervous, as it was my first upper level class. I expected the course to be extremely difficult. Though it was difficult it was not as difficult as I assumed the course would be. It started out fun and even though there were difficult times the class was enjoyable.
Ruth Benedict once wrote, “The adequate study of culture, our own and those on the opposite side of the globe, can press on to fulfillment only as we learn today from the humanities as well as from the scientists.” (Benedict 2011). Anthropology, as a discipline, is concerned with what it means to be human and seeks to address this study by understanding past and modern cultures across the globe, as well as language, human biology, and our evolutionary history. Considering the rather holistic approach anthropology takes when studying the human condition, it provides anthropologists with certain strengths and skills that put them in a special position to be greatly beneficial to research studies. But why should people—be they scholars, policymakers, funders, service providers, or the greater community—trust anthropologists? To address this question, this paper will discuss the ways in which research epistemology, methodologies, and confidence measures contribute to the quality and credibility of anthropological research, as well as how anthropology as a whole benefits and enhances other disciplines in research endeavors.
Starting the first day of school, we talked about the what Anthropology is and how it is distinctive from other groups. When Professor Fisk talked about how anthropology is not culture bound and by the end of the semester he would hopefully take off these "cultural blinders" that all people have. From that day I knew that Anthropology was going to be a class that I learned a lot of knowledge that I would take with me forever and apply it to my life.
