When I was younger I never took a step back to figure out exactly how I learned. It wasn’t important or relevant to me; all that mattered was I understood the information presented to me. When I was given this essay I was surprised that I had never explored the idea of how I learn and what works for me. Through this assignment I figured out what has led to my success in school and will hopefully lead to my success in the future.
The last semester was really good because some classes were fun but the other classes were okay because it was really boring.The classes that I am doing really good is all my classes but biology and cultural geography class because I didn't do my work in class because I really didn't care about my grade but now I do my work because it is important because if I don't pass the classes I am going to fail in my classes because if I don't work I am not going to be promoted.I am doing my work and doing homework because I really care now but I know I made a mistake when I started school because I didn't do any of the homework or work in class I would get distracted easily.I am most proud that I got my grades up and I have a 2.00 gpa because I have
Struggles Help you Strive I loved going to school. But when I started third grade all of that changed. As I came home one afternoon I walk into an awkwardly silent room. My mom sat there on the couch. She patted the couch and told me to sit down. After I sat down she explained to me that my teacher had called and informed her that I would need to be tutored because I just wasn't learning as fast as the other kids in my class. I was devastated. Every Tuesday and Thursday I would stay after school in a dull, plain room with another teacher. On that Tuesday I watched out the window as all my friends were able to go into the perfect weather and start their bus ride home. My tutor ,who was a fourth grade teacher at my school, walked in with joy, excitement and eagerness. Every Tuesday and Thursday she’d help me improve. In just a short
During my years in high school, I always took the necessary courses needed for that certain grade level. Looking back, I realized I was never challenged in these classes which is now affecting me in the long run. Finally, being challenged in a college level English class has improved my overall writing in ways that have contributed to me as a critical thinker. Through the essays we wrote, the grammar and usage lessons, and our classroom methodologies have enhanced my ability to write many different forms of essays. Thus, improving my overall thinking and writing skills.
This Dalis Hernandez, I've done a couple of observation hours in your classroom these past two semesters. For my education class we need to interview a educator that works with students with disabilities and it's only fourteen simple questions. I was wondering if you would be interested?
I have become more proficient in my study skills and organization skills. When we have a test in class I study more often and I don't leave it at last minute like I used to. I have taken the time out of my day and force myself to study. I do not procrastinate like I used to, and I get my work done. Days before the test I will spend my time studying for about 3 hours a day with breaks in between. In class I have gotten better at organization skills. I used to forget or leave it till the end of class to write the homework, that would usually result in my forgetting to write my homework down in my planner. Now I write down my homework or any other assignments in beginning of class. This has lead to me to completing my assignments and not forgetting them and then doing them at last minute. I have also bought more folders for each class, because I used to have two folders and put everything in the same folder. Now with my new folders I am able to store everything separately and know where each paper is.
In all of the years of schooling and of life I have been through enough to say that I adapt extremely well. When I started school I had it easy, with a functioning and supporting family and living in a decent neighborhood. My life was like this until 5th grade which is when my mom had what we called “Troubles” when actuality it was paranoid schizophrenia. DUring this time my teacher at the time was someone who would soon be fired for neglect of teaching and unfair grading. After I survived that year due to the schools tests grading that she couldn’t tamper with my mother’s illness was still what I had to come home too. At times she seemed normal and I wanted to get close again but when I tried this she started to get mad about the “figures” that we didn’t see.
I was surprised how many of my classes taught me these concepts; I knew those classes were setting out to teach me not only the material specific to that class, but also valuable skills that can be used in a variety of situations, but it was still surprising. While I was going through my list of classes I realized that even though some of them are unnecessary for my degree I don’t regret taking them as I learned much more than I thought. I found that most of my classes built upon the skills I had learned in previous classes, even when those classes had nothing to do with one another. I learned part of a skill in one class and the rest in a completely unrelated class later.
I learned many new things during this semester. Before this semester I did not even know that Google Drive existed. I’ve learned how to use it and love it, now I use it for everything. I had always thought of myself as being an organized freak even a little bit
My initial goal was to take better notes from lecture based classes by organizing my notes in to a hierarchal format. Although I did not meet my goal, I saw a change in the way I structured my notes. The way I implemented my goal was to write down notes on a piece of paper, then after class, while reviewing my notes, organize them into a hierarchal format. Successes was that it forced me to review my notes because the notes I took during lecture were not organized, so without organization, I would be in bad shape when I would have to study for the exam. Challenges were that, sometimes I couldn't really know what the overall theme was for the lecture because topics from the pervious lecture would always be mentioned, so it was hard to find the main topic and break it down into smaller segments. How I self monitored was that, after class, I would review my notes for 15 minutes, then would take 15 minutes to organize my notes into a hierarchal format. I self-monitored my self by, thinking if I do not organize my notes, I won't have anything to study for during the test, so I was always focused. I did make modifications to my goal/strategies by I learned that I can type faster than I can hand write, so half way through I tried typing my notes, then I would use bullet points and sub bullet points to make
There is so much i have learned this year and I am so blessed to have taken this class and get to know you. You have done so much for me and i want to thank you for all that you have done.
A few weeks ago before first semester ended I needed to do finals so that my grade could go up or retake tests so that we are passing our classes. During the last week of first semester I was really stressed out because I didn’t finish a presentation that needed to be presented that week.
There are many small things that you learn in a classroom that you do not think will help you in any way. However, things that you first learned in the classroom will be useful when you are in conversations or you are arguing a certain point. An example is the
This latter is to tell you what I hope to happen, what I expected, and what I learned durry the school. There maybe one or two questions here and there.
The reason I worked hard for this semester was so I can get an A which means a lot to me. Just when I thought I would earn it my classes were gone and I was left with a 87.00. I just wanted enough time to get in A in my class because I failed on doing that ever since I've got into this school. If I don't get my time back for my class can you at least give me a 90.00 on my
