    For my final portfolio, I chose to revise a shorter essay, “Potential Ramifications of a Trump Presidency,” and a longer essay, “Assignment 7: Finding Place Research Project.” I chose these two essays specifically because of their differences. The former is shorter, more informal, and includes more of my thoughts and opinions. The latter is a longer research paper, and thus is more formal and less biased as I attempted to give a brief history of gentrification and its impacts on East Liberty. In my essay “Potential Ramifications of a Trump Presidency,” I kept my original introduction. I didn’t talk about other concerns a Trump presidency might bring about because I wanted to focus solely on his impact on the environment. I also did not expand the last sentence of my introduction to include how this could impact the world because I wanted to bring that in in a body paragraph. Most of the changes I made in the essay involved adding new information and fleshing out parts of the paper I thought could be explained more. I split my second paragraph into two separate paragraphs. In the first one, I added more about why it is so important that Trump sets a positive example through his environmental policies, and some of the consequences if he does not do so. I also kept the word “could” in the sentence “Having a president that denies the reality of climate change could be disastrous for the United States, and by extension, the world” because although all of the signs point to Trump…

This affected my ability to feel confident when designing the units. Fortunately, this did help my perspective as an educator because I can understand how some students might struggle. Nonetheless,…

    understand professional growth requires growing pains should not be assessors in the first place. I also understand the concern that perhaps not enough assessors are being trained to replace those about to leave the workforce. However, shortening the certification programs or offering unprofessional home study based programs cannot be the answer.
