Sartre Critical Analysis

Good Essays
Sartre Presentations/Seminars: Although we did not get feedback on the sartre seminars, I know exactly how I felt about them. I did not put in the effort to clarify what I did not understand, and as a result, I lacked the understanding of many crucial points that sartre brings up. I have had to play catch up for the past few months when something is brought up regarding sartre, I end up having to clarify what everyone is talking about. On the other hand, I did thoroughly understand the idea of our passage that was assigned to us. I asked more questions to the smaller group compared to a class seminar, which are easy for me to be shy toward. During the SArtre class seminars I clearly ran “away from uncertainty” which is one of the core principles of what not to do.
Sartre Take-Home Exam: Once again I don’t have feedback, because i never had it returned to me??? I still can reflect on my work of what I thought about it. My key problem with this assignment were the seminars obviously, they resulted in this assignment being a long and tedious task that I have no idea if they are even correct or I understand them. Even when I had peers explain certain ideas to me, I could find what Sartre was saying but sometimes

We had a meeting about this essay, and ultimately, I was disappointed in my scre of 1.5 and kept blaming it all on myself. I kept beating myself down wanted to give up on the class after this essay, because I had felt it was my best essays i had ever analyzed. When we talked and you started talking to me, I think we both realized I completely understood my ideas and that they were analyzed very well in my head, by just were not on paper. Which I believe shows I understood this core principle of deep thinking, learning etc. As I write my first draft, ideas always pop up into my head, the problem is these thoughts don't get put on paper in a well written

    I also noticed I did poorly on my quizzes when I didn’t take the time to make sure I went through all the questions. An example of this was in the week 1 and 2 quiz I submitted my quiz without making sure I answered all the questions. I noticed that I had this time management problem early in the semester, so I started to do things to help myself with it. I bought a white board and used the black marker for deadlines and the blue marker for when I would work on those things. This helped me tremendously because I was able to break down when and what time I would do things.…

    Throughout the semester there has been challenges for me in this class but I never gave up. Since I found out that I had to take a communication class, I knew that that was going to be the worst class of my life. I was wrong, but I can not say I enjoyed doing presentations in front of people. Before college I used to avoid presenting to…

    When it comes to writing about things that don't come from inside me, I feel hopeless. For example, during the research essay I struggled to display all the information I required without sounding like a broken record. I often am at a loss when it comes to writing in this academic form of writing, I personally just think it’s boring. During the research essay, I constantly stumbled upon piles and piles of information, not knowing what to choose. Looking back on this piece there is a clear comment that Professor Goddard made “As you work on future papers, even beyond this class, keep working on tightening the focus of the paper.…

    Looking back at my first speech, there were a lot to be learned. First, I did not have many sources on the speech, and although it was an informative speech, it seems like I lacked credibility because of having less people to refer to. It almost looks like as if I was giving my own opinion about the MOOC. Also, sometimes I got paused during the speech. For that reason, I said “ah” many times throughout the speech.…

    Although I did a lot of practices, during the presentation I went through the content quickly and lacked some explanation. This is because every member had to fit all the explanations for their allocated time. Hence, I was pressured and rushed through the presentation. Moreover, I have a weakness in my non-verbal communication skills. I felt like I didn’t make much eye contact with the lecturer.…

    When class started I did not know that it would be as difficult as it is but overtime I have adapted and learned how to do work, properly. My writing was not the best and I had many people help me and I researched many ways to improve my writing. One of the worst things I struggled with was my grammar. I usually did not check my writing when I finished and would always just revise and edit my essays instead of letting someone else look at it. This class has helped me to let someone revise my essays for me.…

    I think that the biggest problem was her teaching style that I wasn’t acclimated to. It was just really strange to not have a day of lecture, but all we did was get lengthy reading assignments and criticism on the work we had done. We’d nearly spend half an hour listening to her lecture the other students in the class that weren’t academically inspired about how they needed to increase their activity in and outside of class, which I found to be a waste of valuable time and very frustrating. I wanted to learn and better my skills because I wanted to ace the exam, but I felt I was held back by my own teacher. I always believed that the teachers needed to give lectures and provide help, but the mindset was to go get your own help or fail.…

    I was naïve to think that I would pass that exam with flying colors. Reflecting on that test I started to develop a “fixed mindset” as Carol Dweck calls it. In the article, “The Perils and Promises of Praise” by Carol S. Dweck asserts, “In the fixed mindset, students care first and foremost about how they’ll be judged: smart or not smart. Repeatedly, students with these mind-set reject opportunities to learn if they might make mistakes.” Since I take scored so low that I placed into an English learners class, I felt very stupid. Not only did I give into this mindset during the course, I lost all confidence in taking any exam that determined my intelligence and choose to be “stupid.” Till this day, I still struggle a bit with this, but now I do different things to become confident for exams.…

    To be completely honest, I was not excited about this class whatsoever. I have never enjoyed English, I always found it to be the most boring subject. Since I did not enjoy English I never really felt like I truly learned anything, however, after taking this class I have learned a lot. I learned how to actually write a paper using the APA style guide that is used in my field of study. I have learned what kind of information is important to include in the paper that I write and what could be left out.…
