To analyse the presentation and teamwork I need to be able to understand everyone has different experiences and different ways of working and had their own view on teamwork. My confidence grew as I got to know the team. Giving the presentation has helped me with my confidence, which I will need when I am working in the health care. I have also learned to speak up more and encourage others to take part when they where being quiet and not pulling their weight. It was good to do research using the appropriate methods, looking at journals and professional sites. I managed to hold it together during the presentation in front of everyone. I knew the presentation was not going to go as well has it could due to the lack of practice. The reason I was so nervous was

When I arrived at the agency, the room was crowded and many people were waiting for their turned to be served at one of the several tables. The person that I interviewed for this assignment was Emily Hampshire, the coordinator of one of a program called 180. Emily has been with the agency for over a year and is currently the coordinator of the agency’s newest program. This program is a gang prevention and intervention program and was created for the local at-risk youth in an effort to prevent gang related crimes and help youth “change their life around”, as Emily mentioned. This program was created in collaboration with the local Police Department and the Mount Diablo Unified School District and in
“As important as methods may be, the most practical thing we can achieve in any kind of work is insight into what is happening inside us as we do it. The more familiar we are with our inner terrain, the more sure footed our [work] – and living- becomes.” P. J. Palmer (cited in Skovholt, T. M., 2001).
As I started to improve, I felt that imagery and increase arousal was having a large positive impact on my performance. Therefore, it led me to have more motivation to keep having the imagery sessions. However, this time I wanted to try imagery from an external perspective, where I visualize myself from the perspective of someone else. It makes it easier to see the technique and the form of weightlifting. Like the previous sessions, I wanted to psych myself up and be cognitive specific by imaging the certain motor skills to get a feel for the movement. In my mind, I pictured myself as an outsider who is watching someone bench press. From my perspective, I could see the person’s overall form and body movement as they lifted the barbell up
At the age of four, I was diagnosed with brain tumor. At first, the brain tumor only affected my vision, causing me too see double, but after sometime it affected me mentally too. My grades were getting worse and I could not retain any information. A moment in my childhood that holds much significance is when I was in grade three. Every week, my grade three teacher would assign us a reading from our history workbook and have us answer a few long questions for homework. I remember thinking how boring and difficult this would be because I disliked learning about history and hated reading and writing. The first time this was given, I did the work all by myself and got a terrible mark. In my workbook, there were a lot of negative comments and feedback, such as why I did not do the question right, when she taught it in class, how I did not use the question in my answer, how I did not have the proper structure or evidence to support my ideas and more. Having only negative feedback, while my peers got a “good job” or “good try” only made me feel useless and unsuccessful. My mom saw the mark and tried to help me the second time around. I developed a little sense of hope, thinking that my marks could now improve because my mom was going to assist me, but this was not the case. Instead of helping me understand the work, she would give me the answers and then expect me memorize it and use it to help me answer the next question. Unfortunately, this method proved
Throughout my high school career, I have been able to greatly develop my writing. Prior to my senior year, I was already quite confident about completing research papers, which have been required in a number of my CHS classes. I also had a lot of experience writing expository essays. After all, the process of writing a thesis and then breaking up an essay into distinct sections has been preached ever since elementary school. Going into my senior year of high school, I still had a lot to learn in narrative and timed writing. My greatest improvement this year was in the the timed writing category. Before recently, I had always struggled to come up with enough ideas to write a logical essay in a short amount of time. This year, perhaps because of the sheer volume of timed essays that we wrote, I was able to develop a sense of calm and confidence at the start of each assessment. Under these conditions, I could think more clearly and logically. I am still struggling to master the narrative, even if that isn’t reflected in my grade. For me, it is always a very difficult task to start a narrative, and if I am not careful, the story quickly becomes repetitive and dull. Again, more practice should help fix this.
I began my journey at CCRI in the Fall of 2015 after realizing that my life was not progressing in a direction I was comfortable with. I had previously attended three semesters at another community college in my early 20's but did not complete the program due to unexpectedly starting a family (whoops!) and dropping out of school. I had no support network and no money, so I did the only thing that made sense... I got a job. Over the years I worked menial jobs for greedy bozos, eventually acquiring a trade and securing steady reliable income. At first, I felt accomplished to have ascended the ranks and provided for my family, but as time progressed it became apparent that, unless I made a change, I had little room left for career growth.
This week, I meet with my study group two times this week and we did a study guide for everyone to study from. Also, this week I frequently study each day and went to the library to study. I am little bit nervous about this test, because the information is so much, and I am having problem concentrating on the major and key concepts, however, I will have realized and focused on my test. This week, I visited Sandy and she showed me few tips how to tackle nclex question. Also, this week I hired a private tutor to help prepared for the test. Furthermore, this weekend, I will not work and eradicate going out with my friend and family. My goal for this week is to achieve 94 or above on this test. I went online this week and did several Nclex questions on quiz let and did a lot of practice test.
The first and the best lesson I got when I was a student in college is that whether we are in class or not, each day is a lesson independent from anyone else. As I go ahead toward my objective, I have developed and adapted such a great amount during the time to this point. Since I wind up noticeably youthful grown-up, integrity was not something I got just as support from my folks yet in addition anticipated. I went to the full comprehension behind the significance after I turn into an understudy. There were times when I confront the danger of losing and giving up my integrity. In any case, these sorts of circumstance are the one that causes you to hang on the esteem and comprehend the genuine significance behind the word. It intends to be consistent with one's self-esteem and convictions. This prompts ask an answer in regards to life and its advantages, which comes as a bundle including training and genuine involvement with Belmont. Lessons don't begin and end in the class, yet rather extend past or more. There is no limit or point of confinement to people longing to learn, ask and obtain more information.
Throughout my writings in English 2201, I have become a better writer, where my work in both the Category 1 and 2 project shows my abilities. Each category was designed to help and develop my writing and I believe it did that. There were many process that took place while writing and I think it allowed for much improvement. Each part of my writing process played an effective part in having an overall successful paper during the semester.
I subcribe to the theory that best suits each individual’s need. One size does not fit all. I have never been an advocate structured test for grades because I do not believe that test give an accurate picture of what a student has learned. I am a lousy test taker, but ask me to write what I learned and I can go on for days. I am also not a fan of lecturing because it is boring not only to my students but also to me. I would much rather take a lesson and make it real, by using fun acitivies, videos and scenarios.
Weekly lectures enabled me to learn several different academic skills. These lectures lubricated the transition from high school to university. A significant change that happened was the development in studying strategies. "Science of learning" module mentioned "spacing out" method in studying. That was quite useful for me as I used to cram before exams rather than dividing my time into smaller portions as well as complaining about the lack of time. However, I mastered time management, and thus I am appreciating studying, and it boosted my grades. We also reviewed novel tools in the school such as MAP, Avenue, and Pebblepad. Now I know how to use the MAP to explore various programs and gateways, which was pretty helpful for choosing my second-year program. Furthermore, I learned how to use the Avenue for the other courses and Pebblepad for the future study options. The fact that my employer may use my Pebblepad page is important because it provides an excellent opportunity to demonstrate my abilities rather than a single perplexing resume.
