During the first half of my Integrated Practicum, I was independent for the most time, applying my critical thinking, decision-making, communication, and research abilities, but I also asked for assistance or support from my Preceptor and CCD if difficult question raised. I followed the CHNC standards of building trusting relationship and demonstrated professional accountability, responsibility, and adaptability in approaching clients, groups, community partners, nurses, peers, and other professionals. I worked collaboratively in teams and fostered growth with other nursing students by sharing knowledge or alternative approaches or offering the topics to explore. I am confident that I am gaining the necessary
After taking honors English for the past three school years, I now want the challenge of taking a higher level course: AP literature and composition. At this point in my high-school career, I’ve been able to take three advanced classes, and I want this class on my belt as well.
Ever since I got into composition one, I was always that person that didn’t know how to set a proper process of the essay. I have tried going different varieties method how to set multiple essay in high school but my teacher never bothered to help me. There was sometimes that I did not like writing essay because I knew I was going to fail anyways. I struggled when it comes to writing essay but that didn’t stop me from succeeding. I was a little bit concerned so I had no choice but to give it all in for my best. I wanted to show my professor that I could be able to write one of the best essay I ever wrote in class. It was an eight week courses and it was tough for me to keep up with the essays. I believe that I have learned a lot in this course especially doing the MLA format.
Physics is my new found passion; however, I realized this very late in my high school career. I recently finished my first physics class, AP Physics 1, and found that I loved the subject. The inclusion of advanced mathematics and science intrigued me and lead to my search for other ways to involve myself in the field. Although my grade in the class may suggest that everything went smoothly--it did not. I experienced my first failing grade in
On a two-hour bus ride to a small, rural town in New Zealand with my school, we passed by numerous beautiful rolling hills and forests. While my classmates chatted, listened to music, and watched the landscape, I kept my eyes focused downward on my AP Physics binder. It was the summer before senior year, and instead of fully enjoying the month-long community service trip to a foreign country, I also focused on self-studying AP Physics 1 and 2. Because my school requires a prerequisite physics class before enrolling in AP Physics C, I had to learn an entire year’s worth of material over the summer. At the end of my Junior year when I was contemplating taking the harder physics class, one of the physics teachers told me, “No one has jumped straight into Physics C in many years, but I think you can do it.”
When it was obvious that I could not earn an A in this course at this time, I dropped the course so that I could regroup. I used my inner talents for analytical analysis and critical thinking to identify the reasons for my challenges in AP Physics. Quickly I realized that the pressure of getting a good GPA and good grades in every course had paralyzed me. I had channeled all my energy into earning a grade and neglected to consider that knowledge must
In the story “A&P” by John Updike, the main character Sammy is portrayed as a typical young male. When the three young females enter the store, he is quickly distracted from his duties. As he watches the young girls move throughout the store, he describes each of their bodies in detail giving away his overwhelming sexual awareness. Sammy is so distracted by these “bathing beauties” that he rings up some old bat’s item twice and makes her angry. It is made quite evident that Sammy is finely attuned to each and every movement of these young ladies’ as they amble down each and every aisle throughout the store.
Ap Physics was a course that brought me the most pain and joy. Pain of constantly wanting to breakdown and cry from the complexity of it's course but once you understand it brings you so much joy. Knowing that I had to go to class, brought extreme anxiety upon me and it lingered all class period. My teacher Mr.Towne was so
When my physics professor told me that, I was rather upset than happy. I am here to learn, not to only know couple of equations for the test. College classes are designed to challenge students, not to give easy A’s. My time with Harford Community College was great but not challenging enough. I desire more hands-on experience and research projects, which my community college both lack of. This is when I realize that I need to transfer to somewhere that would give me a lot of opportunities to shine.
Someone once said, “Strength doesn’t come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t.” I use to think that I couldn’t take AP because it was too difficult. But I’m willing to prove to myself and others that just because something is considered hard, doesn’t automatically mean it’s not for you or that you’re going to fail. I want to take AP Biology because I want to challenge myself, of the benefits, and for the experience. I believe that hard work comes with great rewards that are life changing.
Starting this class, I’ll be honest, I was afraid when I heard about AP Seminar. I didn’t really know how I got into the class because I know my writing isn’t as great as most kids in my class. AP Seminar involves a lot of hard work, and I felt as if my writing wasn’t good enough. Out of my 5 essays from last year, I only got one A. That one A didn’t make me feel smart though, and I didn’t understand why. Writing this now is difficult for me because I don’t know how to explain things in my own words. I heard a lot about how hard this class is and about the speeches. I can’t stand talking about speeches because that is my greatest fear. I still haven’t figured out my main writing strength, but what I do know is I am taking small steps into
Especially compared to the books I’ve read in previous classes, the reading list for AP looks much more challenging, and it looks like our analysis of these books is going to be very intensive. Additionally, from what I’ve seen of my and my friend’s summer work grades in this class, our assignments will be grade much more stringently than in other classes I’ve had.
My students take the AP Literature and Composition Exam; I have taught the course for four years. The year before I started, student were hand-selected for AP Literature and Composition, and only 9 of 26 students earned qualifying scores (3's or higher). My first year we had just shifted to open enrollment and nearly half of my 50 students were not honors or hand-picked students. Still, our passing percentage inched up from 34 to 36 percent. Numbers keep increasing--I have 70 this year--but our passing percentages are holding steady or increasing slightly, more students overall are earning qualifying scores and,most importantly, more students have access to rigorous coursework that will better prepare them for college whether or not they "pass"
I am petitioning to have my AP credit reinstated, with the subsequent removal of my Math 081 grade removed or reverted to a “W”. Before I came to Lehigh I was required to send in my AP credit in order to check if I met any of the requirements to move ahead in any of the classes and since I had passed the AP Calc exam with a 4 I had intended to move forward. Upon my first day of classes I was notified that I had to take MATH 021 for my major which at the time was CSE but I had intended to switch to CBE. When I was sent to the Advising Business office in order to formulate a schedule for my intended track in CBE an advisor placed me in MATH 081 in order to fulfill the requirement. I inquired why I was required to take a math class recalling
What did I learn in physics this year? Physics reveals how our surroundings operate or don’t operate. I learned how a microwave oven uses rays with a smaller wavelength than a lightbulb. One thing I learned about physics is that it’s all based on math. Having a math disability puts me at a disadvantage against all other students. I understand material better especially if the lesson is taught to me one-on-one and I also don't have a very good memory which doesn't allow me to remember material as fast and easier as others. Let me start off with I know about physics.
