This reflective essay will be adopted from Rolfe, Freshwater and Jasper’s (2001) reflection model. This reflection is based on a case study that I have read and will be based on the intervention I have chosen to treat the patient. Mr. Castello was admitted to the ward for observation after a fight and sustaining a laceration to his right forehead from a beer bottle and extensive bruising and scratches to his left arm. Mr. Castello had a pre-existing chest infection, Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus (DM), and asthma. Assessing, cleaning and dressing his wounds is an integral part of his treatment, as his DM can lead to delayed wound healing and increased chance of infection (Salazar, Ennis, & Koh, 2016). This could be successfully achieved through
In When We Fight, We Win by Greg Jobin-Leeds it says that “comparison can block compassion both for others and for ourselves.” I agree with such statement; I think that listening is a skill you learn throughout time. One can pretend to listen without really getting anything out of the conversation that one is having with that other person. In the Compassionate Listening workshop, I got to do it with Rachel Kurland and I sit and listened to her talking about the moment her friend treason her. I tried to understand her plight, why would she not cut that friendship off, I understood she loved her friend, however, I could not resist bringing my biases to our conversation. I asked myself, why is Rachel, such a good, loving, and smart person,
Reflection is a major factor in "developing self-awareness" to improve services provided to everyone around me, this is to develop my own understanding in realising the good and bad made previously. Moving forward with a better understanding, as well as rectifying the mistake whilst recognizing the good points, (Horton-Deutsch and Sherwood, 2008).
As a poor Asian who ventured out of a dominantly white, small town, I understand the consequences of being a minority. This is how my passion to serve the underserved originated, and why I have partnered with service organizations such as Berea Buddies and AmeriCorps. Being a member of these empathetic communities has deepened my gratitude for how beautifully diverse our world is and for all people regardless of the challenges they face. For example, upon entering my service year to mentor children in D.C. public schools, I was told by almost everyone that there is no helping those children because of the family and monetary problems they encounter. Their responses reminded me of the comments I heard when I decided my life after high-school.
For the last six weeks in both mental and acute setting, I have reflected on events that I had met in each week. Now, I am going to identify essential personal learning outcomes from those events and will include personal awareness of strengths and weaknesses. Among the different models of reflection, I will use the Gibbs model of reflection which entails six stages such as description, feelings, evaluation, analysis, conclusion, action plan.
This semester I learned a lot about writing in English 151. It has been a roller coaster ride with these essays for me this semester. I learned step by step how to write a good essay and how to have your readers be engaged in what you’re trying to tell them. Each essay I did has taught me something valuable I can take to the next level of English. I feel as if as the semester went by I did not take my writing that seriously and that reflected in my grades I received in each essay. It made me a better student and writer and it will reflect next semester. In this essay, I will reflect on what I learned throughout this semester that you should apply in your writing when you begin English 151.
The purpose of this assignment is to discuss the contribution of reflective practice for clinical nursing. Reflection has been defined as a way for individuals to “capture their experience, think about it, mull it over and evaluate” (Boud et al 1985: 19)
After taking the SmarterMeasure assessment and reviewing the results, I was quite amazed to see the substantial amount of my strengths dominating my weaknesses. Firstly, I am going to state my results of the significant components of this assessment including Personal Attributes, Learning Styles, Reading Comprehension, Technical Competency, Technical Knowledge and Typing Speed with Accuracy. Initially, you will get a picture of my strengths and weaknesses. Later on, I am going to devise an action plan specifically on how to tackle my weaknesses in a way it can be terminated.
I printed out this email and I highlighted the answers we were to bubble in. However, once we began to bubble in the answers there was a problem. The overwhelming majority of the students did not know their address. This created a major problem because I was given only one paper with the students’ address. Thus, I had to spend the majority of the time helping students with their addresses. Around 10:50 Tammy Becker walked in and told my class that we were being too loud (I was doing my best helping students fill out their address). She said we were to start the test at 11:05 am. As a result, I made sure we did start the test at 11:05 am. At 11:05 am the students began testing. I followed everything we were instructed to do during the PSAT.
Your summary was easy to follow and provided the overview I needed to understand the subject and main events. The positive economic incentive used to stimulate improvement failed, as it did not compensate for the gap left when America removed God from education. While most teachers would probably follow the guidelines of their administration and would understand the rational provided, the need to be compensated must have been stronger. I would recommend the school system consider an external review process and instituting feedback directly from the teachers and parents together to an impartial board.
My first couple of weeks were difficult for me in the sense that I had to lay in bed all week due to my skin condition. I also had countless hospital visits and by the time I returned to school, I had to catch up on
In researching this “ naming practice” I have found that many students that are foreign as well as those having culturally rich names have psychological barriers and their social lives. According to the article, Exploring Names and Identity Through Multicultural Literature in K-8 Classrooms,
The two bills I chose were bill 2 and bill 5. These bills were a resolution to create a demilitarized zone the South China Sea (bill 2) and a bill to create an Indian free trade agreement (bill 5). The speeches I wrote were both positive and bill 2 was won by the Republicans, which is the group I was with. I also believe bill 5 would have been won too, but that bill was never called upon.
As I shared in the previous week that the CSU application had opened and the Transfer Center was quite busy. This week there was not much of a difference students kept coming in to utilize our lab to complete their CSU application. To be honest, I am enjoying the “application season” so far, I really like taking on the challenge of facilitating the transfer transition of students because I strongly believe that as a transfer staff we have a reasonability of ensuring that students have the support and guidance to transfer successfully. Having attended ELAC myself and also been fortunate enough to work there, I understand and know our student population. Therefore, I know who they are and where they are coming from and being an agent of change I want to empower students to also become agents of change.
