Becoming Proficient In Class

Decent Essays
I have become more proficient in my class participation because because I have gotten used to the people in my classes as well as the teachers. In the beginning of the year I rarely participated in any class because I didn't feel comfortable that I didn't know them well. But as I interacted more with my peers so I started participating more and more. Another thing that I have become more proficient in class is my note taking. Before I used to not take any notes for any class because they didn't seem important. But now I have to take notes in every class because it affects my grades and helps me with a lot of my work not like before. Know that I have gotten proficient in my note taking I do my class work so much easier.

    I just didn 't want to depend on people because they can disappoint you sometimes. I am a responsible person I like to do good in my classes and finish everything on time. Not many people are like me, sometimes they do not do anything because they know someone else can do it for them. College is different because I knew that it was going to be though, I did not want to be alone because it 's hard especially when doing presentations. Meeting my group members for the first time was okay, at first I did not talk to them because we were all really quiet.…

    I would pass all my classes with decent grades with no problems despite ignoring a lot of the work, but then I was called by my English teacher to stay after class. I was missing a lot of homework in his class and of course he wanted me to make it up. He warned me that if didn’t start doing more of my work I would fail his class. I didn’t really panic because the homework was really all I…

    My practicum experience in this class was quite an interesting one. I didn 't know how it was going to work, but quickly saw it was easy to figure out. I did have a few mishaps because of the way my resource class operate, I often have to change my whole lesson at the last minute. So even though I have written a lesson plan and scripted it out, it is usually geared towards their IEP goals or missing basic skills they need, when I see most of my students not getting something in class I chose to focus on what they need the most so then my lesson doesn 't match my lesson plan. Overall I think the experience was just okay, this is definitely something different for the school to have to observe someone online and it was a learning process and…

    As the class progressed I learned to actually enjoy writing and researching more. I thought it would be another writing course with boring prompts and no challenge leading me to hate and dread this class similar to high school, but I was wrong. In this semester alone I learned more about my writing style, mechanics, structure, heading, organizing and sourcing than I had previously in my high school career.Teacher in high school just does not do a sufficient job at teaching the mechanics of writing. This being said I did not earn the grades I wanted, but I learned from all my mistakes as I wrote each paper it became slightly better. I realized that with each paper my grade increased slightly.…

    I never did much pre-writing before my English 101 class this year. The most pre-writing I had ever done before English 101 would be writing down some ideas but it wasn’t very organized so it was hard to read. Pre-writing helps me a lot with developing my paper because it allowed me to get my different ideas down on paper so, I could see which ones were better than the other ones. It also helps me because doing pre-writing help me stay organized for my papers. After I put all of my ideas down then I start working on my outline.…

    Most of them were the type of kids that would rather have fun instead of doing work and get good grades. I began to get to know them better as time went by and as a result I kind of began becoming one of them. I began to slack off on my classwork and homework. I just sat in my seat doing nothing like the rest of my friends in class. I watched my teacher send out kids who were disrupting class and talking back to the teacher one by one.…

    I have met the challenge by using new tools and switching my way of thinking. I asked my teacher for help with the memorization and the information. I took extra time to study and to complete the class to the best of my abilities. 5) The students around me that do not take the classes seriously have affected me negatively. My resources become limited for homework when I do not have other students to discuss the content with.…

    I have learned how to work hard and I could study for hours on end now, however I don’t think that would be healthy physically or mentally, and definitely not socially. I want to learn how to study in a way that I can get things to stick inside my head more quickly and in a way that I will know how I can apply what I learned to my life. in short I want to learn how to learn better! Lastly one of my biggest weaknesses has been my confidence in myself and in the work that I do. I have always been quiet in class and have not participated near as much as I should have just because of my lack of confidence in myself and in my work.…

    My parents had split, and during that time my interest in school and learning plummeted. The effects of my parents still had a huge impact on me throughout the first years of high school. This resulted in me not caring as much as I did before. As time went on I realized I could get by in school with little to no effort, my friends would almost always help out and take the extra workload on our group projects making things much easier on me. Teachers, well they made it even easier because I could call on them last second in the semester and they would come ready to help me tackle whatever task it was that I needed to get done.…

    Writing was now my main focus of literacy and seemed difficult for me and did not come with ease. Writing was never my strong suit and quite honest it still isn’t. With many hours of writing and re-writing papers for English classes, my writing slowly started to improve. Knowing now how much writing means and how much it’s used every day, I wish I would have worked harder and would not have procrastinated on my essays throughout high school. By not paying attention in class and always trying to go un-noticed, my writing slowed in improvement.…
