Ray Bradbury has noticed this trend of people becoming more and more dependent on technology; after all we use the television, computers, and even automobiles everyday. In the pedestrian Ray Bradbury has used insect images in The Pedestrian that suggests that with the increasing number of people using technology it will trap and destroy us. Bradbury writes "During the day it was a thunderous surge of cars, the gas stations open, a great insect rustling and a ceaseless jockeying for position as the scarab-beetles, a faint incense puttering from their exhausts, skimmed homeward to the far directions."

My Philosophy of Education - Philosophy of Education If I had to pick one view that is most compatible with my own view and learning and teaching it would have to be Constructivism. If I got to choose another one I would go with Cognitive.

A Functioning Member of Many Societies - My transition from high school to college was not flawless; the first two semesters of my college experience were academically frustrating. In high school, I was able to attain a high level of success with minimal foresight and planning. I quickly found that this was not the case in college, and that I would have to reevaluate my study habits and organizational techniques in order to improve my grades. While my first semester grades were not terrible, I knew it was not my personal best. I approached the next semester with the drive to succeed; but still did not fully understand what it was going to take to achieve success....   [tags: Personal Statement] 1083 words

Why I Should Study Law - There was a time years ago, while I was still in high school, I remember consciously making the decision to not to devote myself to making as much money as possible, but to instead devote myself in the service of others. It is not some grandiose moral quest. To be honest, I just feel moving things forward is a much harder, more engaging, and far more interesting path than trying to accumulate vast sums of wealth. When I went to college, I spent countless hours reading everything I could find that might help prepare me to make a difference....   [tags: Personal Statement] 703 words

My Passion For Medicine - I quote a man who has been accepted by the general populace to be accurate in his observations of society: “Every civilization is, among other things, an arrangement for domesticating the passions and setting them to do useful work”, Aldous Huxley is known to have said. I know not the purpose of life, but I know of passion, and mine lies in medicine. I moved from New York to an impoverished village in India during my pre-adolescent age. There, my life saw juxtaposition like no other. From air-conditioned, colorful children wards where the nurse gave you “I was brave!” stickers (despite you throwing a fit) and lollipops, I saw children screaming in agony as crude and outdated procedures such as lobotomies were used to treat relatively simple issues....   [tags: Personal Statement] 701 words

Education Goals - I grew up in rural central Florida raising livestock and produce. I took pride in the hard labor that was caring for the animals and tending the crops, but I could never find fulfillment in that routine.

My Pursuit of and Passion For Medicine - At three in the morning, the phone rang. A trembling voice relayed the news that my friend had fallen into a coma due to an inoperable brain aneurysm. A few days later, her family decided to stop life support after confirmation that she was completely brain-dead. The fact that nothing could be done for her in this day and age, despite all our technological advancements, was a great shock to me.

Furthering My Education At California State University San Marcos - When I pick up a novel, I cannot hastily read the story. I must set aside plenty of time because I examine how the author has constructed each sentence. My task is long and arduous, but the time spent is worthwhile. I will also assume each character’s persona while reading the narrative and sometimes imagine I am one of the characters. By doing so, I am no longer reading written words on a page. I am giving life, emotion, and substance to each character. I will begin to feel each character’s happiness or sorrow; each character is now a part of me....   [tags: Personal Statement] 1009 words

Desire To Make a Difference - Waking up early on Saturday morning’s to volunteer at Pleasant Place Incorporated became a routine for me once I joined Zeta Phi Beta Sorority Incorporated in the spring of 2009. Although waking up from a deep sleep and fairy tale dreams was anything but pleasant, walking into the shelter filled with teenage mothers always struck me with both happiness and sadness. After a few visits to the shelter I quickly realized what role I would play in the lives of these young ladies and their children. I knew I was not there to pass judgment and never once did it cross my mind to make these teenagers feel insecure....   [tags: Personal Statement] 808 words

My Educational Goals and Philosophy Statement - My Eclectic Educational Philosophy Thinking back on the years of high school, I remember having wonderful experiences both inside the classroom and out. I had influential teachers and the drive to succeed in order to obtain a higher education. I realize that not all students have that drive to continue their education, but as an aspiring educator I wish to seek and find that drive in each of my students. The famous philosopher and educator, John Dewey, once said, "The aim of education is to enable individuals to continue their education -- or that the object and reward of learning is continued capacity for growth." As a facilitating instructor, I plan to pursue this "aim of education" with an eclectic blend of elements stemming from philosophies of education that already exist while creating and incorporating my own....   [tags: Philosophy of Education Teaching] 1037 words

Jonathan Swift's Gulliver's Travels - Yahoos and Houyhnhnms - What do the Yahoos and the Houyhnhnms stand for. What moral was Swift drawing from them. The answer to the second question depends on the solution of the first. One solution could be that the Yahoos represent man as he actually is, self-seeking, sensual and depraved, while the Houyhnhnms symbolize what man ought to be, unselfish, rational, cultured. In the fourth voyage, Swift presents a case study for opposing states of nature, with the Yahoos representing the argument that man is governed by his passions, seeking his own advantage, pursuing pleasures and avoiding pain, and the Houyhnhnms representing the argument that man is governed by reason....   [tags: Gulliver's Travels Essays] 912 words
