Reflection In Counseling Class

Great Essays
Every time I thought about starting this paper I ran into a problem with the first question you had asked. My problem was I had taken this class before and was familiar with all the skills we went over. That’s not to say I was able to recall them perfectly or do them the best, but I knew them, in some way shape or form. So after thinking about this I approached the first question you had asked a little different. From taking the class before I noticed my skills where farther along than just starting with a blank slate. Although they were still at a standstill because of what, you and I have talk about many of times throughout the class. Which is that that I am very guarded and am a shy person. Besides the fact that I know this about myself, I felt that there were many skills that when I went in to this class I was already able to use not great but well. I am not going to list all of them, but I feel …show more content…
In the way where things that I learned in here I was able to use them in everyday life to improve on every second, of every minute, of every hour, of every day conversations. Not only do I feel that I had grown in this because of this class but all gained growth in my counseling skills and my willingness to talk to people within the class, from the beginning of the semester to the end. When you asked to discuss any reactions to my own development this semester, at first I did not really know what to say about how I felt about my development during this semester. This is due to me, mainly being all over the place and still not really knowing my direction. Which to me is not a good thing or bad thing it’s just who I am. But despite this just in general, I was very proud of my development this semester compared to what had happened last semester with this same class. Why? I found I have learned and grow a-lot and it contributed to this environment, of the class and of course the

    This was in grave part thanks to my instructors for correcting my mistakes and leading me to the right direction, whether it was tough criticism or not. Mistakes cannot always be seen as a negative, as you can move on and correct them to better your knowledge. From my first essay this semester to my last I have seen a vigorous amount of improvement. Not only seen in my grades, but in the way my writing has transitioned between paragraphs and topics. This has helped my work flow more and added a keen sense of intelligence.…

    They all said really nice things and that made me feel good even though I thought I did not do a good job. It felt good to know that my audience thought it was good presentation. Through that I gained confidence and the knowledge that public speaking really is not that scary after all. Its how funny how something I was worried about for the entire semester turned out o be one of the best experiences. The biggest improvement I have seen was my improvement in speaking.…

    This has been a wonderful idea and the students absolutely enjoy being able to do this role daily. It 's amazing to see students who did not participate in the beginning are now asking if they can be the teacher for the day. These students are not the same students they were on August 17th. They have progressed tremendously and I’m confident they will continue to progress throughout the year. I cannot express how proud I am of these students, and how far they’ve grown throughout my…

    As far as my performance in my internship goes, I hope I was able to impress Steven and Shanna and help them out instead of hinder them this semester. In my opinion I feel like I was able to help because I always did what was asked of me and they knew they could rely on me. I was at every class and meeting unless something else for school came up, so I feel like I lived up to what I told them I was going to do at the beginning of the semester. I think my main growth from this internship happened not only in me seeing my leadership styles more clearly, but in my confidence in speaking as well. I always get extremely nervous before I have to talk in front of a group before anything, no matter what.…

    Reflective Analysis This year in Speaking of Faith and Meaning my skills with delivering speeches has strengthened substantially.

    I have always been a person who does not talk a lot and does not take the initiative to start conversations with new people. Being that Abbott is a big college and I did not necessarily know people in all my classes it has forced me to go up to people, especially when we have to do group projects. When I first started CEGEP, group projects were the main reason for my high level of stress just because I knew that I had to speak to people I did not know and work with them, I always liked to projects alone better. However, being that it is my forth semester I have gotten used to it and it is much easier for me to open up to knew people. I am glad that I am able to do so because I realized that I learn a lot from people.…

    My conference paper is where I received the highest grade, while in my other essays I was always just a smidge shy of an A. personally I believe that the reason for this was because I lacked control, structure, and purpose in my papers. My professor would tell me that I was “missing something” which continued to aggravate me as well as motivate me to try harder. In the conference paper I attempted to push myself by using all of the techniques I had learned throughout the semester. The annotated bibliography taught me how to correctly summarize an excerpt with proper citations. The synthesis essay successfully enlightened me on the art of combination, which is also what the executive summary asks me to do.…

    Like said before, this class is a preparation for classes that are more challenging than this one. John Dewey said once, “Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself,” and this class has shown me that. All the material I have learned since day one has been a good help for me because it prepares me for future classes in this case English 101 which is considered for many people as a challenging class. Every assignment I have been given to do is a little preparation for me, and I have done the best of me to get good grades based on what I have learned since the first lesson. I have to admit that all the assignments I did in this class were hard for me, but I learned that showing your abilities and focusing on what I have to do, it makes the assignments easier than how they really…
