For years gymnastics has been a sport that many children participate in. But as the years have gone by it has turned into something other than a place for kids to grow and learn. Its overwhelming commitment has continued to replace kids’ childhoods with stress, mental and physical pain and eating disorders. Many results have come from this change in the gymnastics society. Gymnasts have come to a point where they have been told and directed to understand that winning is the only important factor in gymnastics. “ It’s about the elite child athlete and the American obsession with winning that has produced a training environment wherein results are bought in at any cost, no matter how
By taking English 102, it has given me skills to help become a college level writer. It is important to become a college level writer so that it better prepares me for future college courses. College level writing is going to be extremely important for me especially, as I go into law school, and hoping to be a future lawyer. During this course, I have learned how to better incorporate research and evidence into my essays, whether that be to help prove a point or to just provide general background knowledge on an issue. English 102 has helped prepare me as well on helping me become a better writer, by helping me understand what a good source is to use and how to apply these aspects of research without showing bias, but simply stating the facts. Through
After completing English 1020 course, I thought I have gained so much skill in writing, reading, and researching that I didn’t need to take any other English course to gain more skills. However, English 3010 course proved me wrong. By taking English 3010 courses, I could realize that, even though I have gained many skills from English 1020 course, it wasn’t enough and I certainly needed to learn more. English 3010 was a course designed to test student’s skill on three major areas: writing, reading, and researching, and more importantly, to help students make improvements in these three areas. Based on the assignment I have completed, the improvements I have made, and by the countless help of the instructor throughout the semester, I was able to gain a lot more skill in English 3010 class on three major areas: writing, reading, and researching.
To begin with, English II has been an intriguing course with an abundance of knowledge accumulation. There are plenty of wide range topics we had been over with significant historical, personal, emotional and cultural value. The three main subjects I was very absorbed by was The Secret Life of Bees, Jim Crow and debate. These topics have inspired me to invest more time in literature and the education it provides for everyday life.
English has never been an easy subject for me. It is something that I've needed to work at constantly in order to achieve a grade that I am satisfied by or more likely, my parents are satisfied by. Throughout high school I have been a person who is naturally gifted in mathematics, physics and chemistry. These subjects are straightforward to me because I knew if I worked harder I would obtain a higher grade, but with English it always seemed that even if I put in more effort it wasn't a given that I’d see better results.
Starting this year, I thought English 102 was just going to be another general education requirement I needed to have in order to graduate. English has never been my favorite subject, so I guess it is safe to say that I was not super excited about this class. However, this class turned out to be different then I thought. It turned out to be more useful then I originally thought. English 102 was both helpful and fairly simple because of what what I learned, the effort I put in and how prepared I was.
Imagine walking on a four-inch piece of wood that is four feet off the ground, or flying through the air performing skills people only dream of doing. Gymnastics is a sport that taught me many things including, how to preserve through difficult situations and how to overcome my fears. I did gymnastics for ten years before I decided that the sport was too stressful and time consuming.
If I don’t get into this ENG 102 class, my beloved parents will literally bury me alive. I am too young to die and my life basically is in the palm of your hand. Putting me into the 102 class will keep me from dying at a young age. If not, I have planned to run away from home and I will end up homeless. I have achieved way to much to end up homeless and you will enervate my ambitions. Please help me and advance me into ENG 102, I beg of
Skill number six is where the resource family understands how to help the child develop a strength based understanding of his or her life story and to make new meaning of their trauma history and current experiences. The goal is to guide the resource family with strategies on how to talk about the child’s past, build meaning to his or her life narrative, and process new information that the child discloses. Some tasks associated with this goal include:
I believe that I should be in English 9 honors for freshman year. I think this because I have worked really hard to get where I am in school and think that I can only improve. Honors English is a challenge I would like to work for. This year most of my grades in ELA have been 3.5s although there are people that get better grades I am willing to improve and push to be in a high level class. I would like to push to the best of my abilities in high school and work hard and being in an honors class would let me be able to do that. The work load will not bother me because I believe it is worth it. In high school I would like to challenge myself in ways I never got to in middle school. I am looking to learn at a faster pace than I have been learning
Over the course of time, I have learned that learning is essential if you want to be successful. Whether it is about life skills or school, learning is a habit that everyone uses in a way to become successful. One of my main goals is to obtain the most out of college so that I can input what I learn in school in the outside world. Meaning that I want to learn as much as I possibly can in any course, especially in this course. I expected this course to be a review of my English class during my senior year of high school, but I extended on what I had previously learned about English. As this semester of ENG 111 ends, I can say that I have improved skills that involve grammar, structuring a paragraph with supporting details, and opening my

For the short amount of time I have attended English 1101 through Sinclair I have learned that college courses are not like high school. English 1101 is even a sugar coated version of a real college class because I do not leave my high school campus. This class puts a lot more responsibility on the students compared to high school. I noticed that my usual procrastination did not make the cut. I have perceived that my grammar, vocabulary, and editing skills have
I am interested in taking English 9 Honors because I hope my future career will be based on English skills such as writing and reading. In my future, I hope to be a lawyer, which is a more difficult job and I will need an advanced level of English skills. I thought taking an advanced level of English will help me reach my goal of becoming a lawyer. I also decided to take this class because I really love and understand the topic of English. I have always loved to read on my own time and in school and adored writing, from poems to stories and many other writing forms. Since I have the pretty good understanding of English I want to work harder to learn more about English skills. In English 9 honors my expectations regarding this class is a more
On September 1, 2012 I moved to Virginia, United States. Many can say that, but to me it is one of the greatest things I have done in life. Being born in Puerto Rico, an island in which Spanish is the main language, the wish of learning English was constantly in my mind. As I grew up I started to take English courses in school; however, the courses were not as effective, since I only learned the basics of English. Later on after graduating from sixth grade I was enrolled in a bilingual private school. The fact that the school was mostly in English and that it was private challenged my learning even more than in a public school. Although the school was a great one, I was doing badly accademically. It wasn’t until the school year was over that I decided to move to the state of Virginia in order to begin with my journey. A journey in which I learned many things from life and because of this experience I am preapared to overcome anything that comes between me and what I want.
