Weekly Reflective Journal #7 My week was long and a bumpy rollercoaster. I was sick towards the first half of the week which made my days drag. However, I remained energetic for my class because this week was Read Across America week. The school had a Dr. Seuss book theme each day. I dressed up and the kids dressed up. It was so sweet and we delved into Dr. Seuss. We discussed his stories messages, the rhymes, real words vs. made-up words, and connections to our lives. The only downside was that a handful of our students were sick this week. On Wednesday, our class started out at fourteen and by 12:45 we had eight students left. It made classroom management easier, but I missed the smiling faces of the absent students.
My phone helps with reminding me to stay on schedule while I have a weekly calendar on my desk that reminds me of everything I have to do during said week. For my classwork, I look at what I have to accomplish in advance so I can adjust my schedule
Thus far we have largely been focusing on the logistics and bureaucratic aspects of preparing to begin research. Professor Barwick, Aashwin, Akrit, Prawesh and I met to discuss when our schedules align for collaborative work. We determined that Thursday afternoons would best suit the majority of us for working in the labs, and that we would all meet at a different point in the week--likely Monday mornings--to discuss our progress. During that meeting, we also visited the lab spaces again and discussed what each area would be used for.
I reside in the state of Pennsylvania and I am surrounded by farmlands, and the old fashioned people know as the amish. I am currently employed at a retirement community as a waiter, and I just recently put an application in at buffalo wild wings. I am pursuing a degree
I feel that I have changed tremendously this semester. This class has allowed me to understand that I cannot change individuals; however, I can provide them with adequate resources to allow them to enhance their lives, if that is the choice they desire to make. I do
I had similar challenges. I also had problems finding research on the problem I am addressing, not only had difficulties on finding peer reviewed articles, but I did not find anything relate to my question at ACE library. Likely, my son is going to San Diego State University and I was successful. I am a physical education teacher, and students usually do not like to run the mile even when they are capable, so I think part of the problem is that the students are not motivated. On my research I am trying to prove that if the students take their heart rate before and after the mile will increase their motivation and as result improve their mile time. Most the research I found was about checking heart rate as a way to show exercise intensity
The continuity of the week four, brochures still on the last process of editing, urgent PowerPoint presentation was given unexpectedly to us, to edit and re-vise, urgent route building to building was made. Well I guess this whole week was under pressure and busy, papers need to sign was also given, Photocopy now and then was made. As much as possible we maintained to submit the project before the deadline because we knew these projects need to submit on time.
Week One Reflective Journal Erik Erikson’s specialty is in the field of ego psychology. As an ego psychologist, his theory on ego identity is renown as the best-known theory of psychosocial development. Erikson’s theory defines ego identity as “the conscious sense of self that we develop through social interaction
Interested in the apparel business, I began to embroider clothing and sell it in school. I typically relied on word-of-mouth advertising but soon realized that there were better ways to advertise. As I moved my sales into the e-commerce world I learned about the power of social media as a
The purpose of this paper is to reflect on my fourth day of Clinical. Today was all motivated and had a positive attitude for accomplishing the day. I knew there was the possibility that my previous resident might have been discharged, I was happy, but worried whether he would reposition every so often to maintain and increase blood flow to the sacral region for the pressure ulcer. Also concerned whether he would take steps in preventing urinary infection especially with use of briefs. Therefore, when I step into the resident’s hall, I checked for his name at the door. The name was not there, so I knew he had gone home. With that news, I informed our instructor that the resident had been discharged. I was assigned to a new resident with unilateral
This week placement is a bit boring. We don’t have much to do, but regardless we had one workshop about Second Career. I helped the other staff that facilitated the workshop in doing it. It was informative as it tells and gives clients what they need to know about it. Also, helped them understand who is eligible for Second Career. At the end of the workshop, clients had group’s discussion about the workshop. I was asked to supervise the group discussions where every members of each group were able to discus among themselves what they learned.
I overcame my challenge that I had discussed in last weeks Journal by getting more organized. I made a to-do list and stuck to it. I wrote down every assignment due date and every test day on a calendar, so I knew exactly what was due and when. I also made sure to incorporate all meetings for extracurricular activities into my calendar. I got a planner and filled it with all upcoming test dates, assignment due dates, and meetings as well. I also became better at prioritizing and adding flexibility to my daily schedule. I made sure that I prioritized equal study time for all my classes but also added down time into my daily schedule for leisurely activities as well. My grades began to improve after I got more organized and learned to manage
The entries I chose to reflect upon are journal entries three and four. Both entries dealt with the second writing prompt, which allowed the students to address the representation of White privilege in the media and raise awareness about its effect on a specific case. Additionally, both gave precise details about my writing process when constructing the Taylor Swift essay. What I am proud of is that these two entries were flip sides of the same argumentative coin. Additionally, these showcased my ability to use my distinct style in exact opposite conditions, by beginning with one point of view and ending with the entire paper’s focus ending in the converse.
Response Journal Is causing parents pain part of the process of growing up, or is it avoidable? It is my belief from my personal observation and experience that this is inevitable. Parents, or good parents there of, try to give their children ‘the best’. Most people wish to pass on their knowledge and experience to their offspring in hopes that they in turn will do better than they had. In part, this resonates with the child as they too wish to excel in life, pushing the boundaries, exploring their potential, but avoiding as many hardships as they possibly can. However, many factors do not align in the way that this is put into action from both parties. Your child is not going to be exactly like you, they have their own unique experiences and
5. What would you do differently if you had the chance? During our return demonstration, we all felt like we needed to look to our instructor for guidance in what we should do. The reason for this was because we all lacked the confidence to feel like we knew what we were doing. If I could do it again, I would have liked to have been more knowledgeable about the scenario so that I could be more confident.
