I have grown as a writer because of this class. I see this mostly in the process of my revisions. My essay was stronger in the final version because I dug deeper for exactly how hard my role models issues were that she had to overcome. This process was important because this class is about progressing your writing, and that is what I did. Also, I would not have been able to do this without the feedback I received. Although I did well adding clearer examples of perseverance to my essay, I could have started my research sooner. This would have given me a better initial platform for the focus of my essay.
The first critical response journal entry for Contemporary Issues in Special Education involves personal insights and reflection on the first two chapters of the text which explore monitoring and teaching for understanding and approaches to learning and teaching.
The Fictitious Journal Beat sheet • Opens up with three children running in a park/meadow. With the sun shining on them as if it were the angelic innocence of youth. Kind of glare like a flashback. • It proceeds with two boys are waiting on a girl
Humans differ from each other. Some people like to change themselves in a better way, and other accept how bad they are. Your concern may be correct, but it doesn't apply to all kinds of people especially for the one that read this book. Writing journal help people to be
Response to Journal 1 • I agree with you on the fact that it is important for us to step outside of our own cultures. I believe we both feel that is the only we are able to grow as a people and society. And yes, we should also get rid of any biases or stereotypes that we may have. But I feel that if we do not know we have those views it is hard to get rid of them. In addition, we must also acknowledge that we have certain biases and stereotypes against other cultures before we are able correct them. One cannot fix a problem if they feel that there isn’t one. I am happy to know that you recognize that you have been excluded from those different than yourself and that you have been able to benefit from our class. I agree that the class is very informing and eye-opening.
Topic 6 Journal Entry: Priorities There are four major personal obstacles which I need to overcome on a daily basis, they are; Temporal Lobe damage, chronic pain, Attention Deficit Disorder, and Fibromyalgia. Over the years I have found ways to overcome what some would call disabilities, through constant determination, and prayer. The Temporal Lobe damage has caused short-term memory loss and recall issues. To overcome these issues when I am studying, I have to write down any thoughts the instant which they come to me or it will be lost in an instant. I have considered using a digital recorder, but they are not always convenient to use. To help me overcome the symptoms of chronic pain, and Fibromyalgia, I have to schedule my classwork during
Before entering this class I had moderate writing abilities and poor analyzing abilities. Since this is a writing class I knew it would consist of a lot of writing. However I didn’t expect this class to be so focused on research. So from this class I learned more than just writing and research abilities, I absorbed the capability to read better as well as reflect.
We thank the reviewer for his/her thoughtful concern. First, the pups from one mom’s uterus were randomly selected to be electroporated with experimental or control plasmids. To reduce the individual variations from different pregnant moms and human handling differences, we always tried to make sure that control and experimental plasmids
I appreciate the time you taught me in this class. I’m lucky to have you as a professor, who takes personal time to help with assignments. I have learned a lot from thesis statement and develop and organize my essay. My favorite topic is chapter 13 make a point and chapter 14 structure. My issue was not having my essay organized. The chapter 13 helped me be clearer on my point what I’m writing about. The chapter 14 helped me organized my writing. Relearning this was a refresher.
Personal Reflection Personal Change The biggest personal take away from the course was I was luckily enough to have a fairly easy time getting through college. Applied and accepted to one school, half price tuition, scholarships, and full pell grants, never received lower than a B, graduated early and had a job lined up before graduation. By no means was anything handed to me, but I knew I need to get out of school as quick as possible and get into the real world. I only dealt with homesickness my first semester. Looking back on my undergrad years, I did not deal with the typical struggles my students do. Throughout my two and half years in higher education, my eyes have been opened up tremendously, but this class opened my eyes to different issues. Issues that I have not faced yet. I am positive I will face several of these problems one day, either with my students or myself. I am happy to think back to previous discussions to help my students move through the hard
The best advice I have for peer review is not to take it personally. The reviewer is truly trying to give you a second or third set of eyes on your work. Sometimes what is said is spot on and sometimes it will help you find something else to fix or tweak. As I had been taught in section 6.01 of the eLearning, the need for peer review is so important to revision. I used my reviews to adjust what I had missed or just overlooked going to fast through my own paper. The process made a big difference in my revision, therefore in my final
Peer reviewed journals are written by professionals on a topic within their field. The journals are then passed on to other credible professionals within the same field for editing purposes. They will occasionally edit for spellings and grammatical errors; however, their main focus is on the content of the journal and its validity. Peer reviewed articles ensure only valid, non-biased information is being published.
An academic or scholarly journal article us written with the purpose of informing or educating an intellectual audience. This type of article can be determined by its serious presentation.

We also learned about mental health and how it affects more than twenty-five percent of Americans over the age of eighteen – almost sixty million people – every year are affected. Something sad that we learned was that the third leading cause of death among fifteen to twenty-four year olds is suicide. I believe that there is always an answer to someone’s mental health and it should never be suicide. With the correct help and guidance given by a professional, peoples mental health would be able to be cured. Along with mental health we also learned about emotional health and spiritual health which are also important to live a happy and healthy life. A person’s self esteem should always be positive because no one is perfect and flaws are what make us so unique. Another topic that we talked about and most college students can reflect on is stress. Even though there is positive and negative stress, college students said stress as their number one obstacle to their academic achievements. Increased heart rate and blood pressure also come from stress which I can relate to especially during finals
The scholarly journals have a huge contribution or reviewers behind them. ‘Peer Reviews’ aid the exploration, setting up of a strategy by which it can be assessed, and increment organizing conceivable outcomes inside of examination groups. Notwithstanding reactions, ‘Peer Review’ is still the main broadly acknowledged system for examination acceptance.
