    My Homeschooled My Life

    foundation of my math experience. In the first two years of high-school, things were a little different. Dad, who could always find answers to problems, didn’t always know the formulas I would need for standardized testing. Mom, whose highest level of college math was Algebra II, taught me and my older brother the best she could. In the latter years of high-school, when it came to higher levels of math, I taught myself. Reading books and finding online resources was how I learned. Of everything I learned on my own, I enjoyed advanced Geometry and basic Trigonometry the most. I have always liked working with things I could visualize, conceptualize, and make logical observations about. Unfortunately, as I got older, especially in eleventh and twelfth grade, I found myself slipping behind the curve because I didn’t have a professor to work with. If I couldn’t find the answer to a problem, I didn’t have anyone to ask — it was up to me, and only me, to find the answer. Moreover, without formal guidance, I found myself making a lot of simple mistakes. For example, I remember taking the SAT the first five times with a calculator that I bought from Dollar Tree — I simply hadn’t had the experience with scientific or graphing calculators that I needed. This was my math experience as a young adult. Most of my math experiences, good or bad, can be attributed to being homeschooled. When I was younger, I understood math because my dad could explain it in simple terms, with examples, and in…

    When the former had been enhanced throughout taking ESL courses in eleventh grade, the latter had remained the same. I was simply unable to imagine how people could mentally process materials and rationally, smoothly reflect them in their essays. Sitting in front of my laptop and opening a brand new Word document, I read the assignment that I had no knowledge in over and over again. Then I stood up, got some…

    Using the Writing Process to Write a Narrative Essay Growing up I never thought I would leave my country (Cameroon), not until I was at least a high school graduate to further my education either in the U. S or Canada. Cameroon is located in central Africa and is bothered by countries such as Nigeria and Congo. Cameroon is the place I called home until the age of the age of twelve, which was when I left for the United States. Two weeks prior to our departure, my mother and I went on a trip to…

    To be completely frank with you, this class was a challenge to me. Although this class did have some similarities to my twelfth grade english class, the differences were unfamiliar to my sense, but I am glad I faced it in this semester. A big challenge that I had to face this semester was asking for the proper help I need to improve my writing, and participating in class. I do admit, I never truly faced the challenge of participating in class as much I expected to. Although, I did ask for help,…

    died, it took a toll on Buck, it took lots of perseverance to make sure he keeps up with the others. In contrast, Megan knew a boy who didn’t graduate and that made her realize that she probably will not graduate if she kept her grades like that, and it took lots of perseverance to keep up with everybody else. They both struggled to keep up and not fail, and they both felt like giving up. Perseverance happens in everybody's life, it doesn’t matter who or what you are. This is what happened with…

    Open Campus Lunch Essay

    sitting in incommodious classrooms while having freedom in open space. Having breaks between classes is fine, but off campus breaks are better because they give the students down-time without constant supervision. Open campus lunch periods have many preceding benefits. The horrors of acquiescing students to leave unsupervised have reasonable concern to them. For example, high school students don’t always make the best decisions and don’t always act mature. They could end up lost, causing an…

    Disguise In Twelfth Night Analysis

    As Viola cannot show her love for Orsino, the only way she can express them is in her soliloquies to the audience, this contributes to the dramatic ironies. I believe dramatic irony certainly adds to the magic of Twelfth Night. The disguise also causes mistaken identity, an example of this is when Sir Andrew goes looking for Cesario, finds who he thinks is Cesario, strikes him, the person however is, Sebastian. Sebastian hits him in return, but sevenfold, and Sebastian having been in Illyria…

But then there are those students who classify persistence as making it…

    asset for instructors, students, and teachers. In the United States we use grading to track the academic progression of students. Grades are important to education and serve many purposes. Grades motivate students, allow us to compare student performance across different institutions or organizations, and motivate students to succeed. Bernard Bull, a writer for Etale, claims that letter grades are effective in the short-term, but in the long term he argues that they can have negative effects…
