For me the thought of conflict being useful was preposterous because I was raised to avoid conflict at most costs. Although, we have learn... ... middle of paper ... ...group members can feel so attached by the end of a series of sessions. Letting other know about my personal thoughts made me feel closer to them. Overall, the small group was a great experience that had some positive outcomes for the group and I. To conclude I’d like to say that something I’ll remember from this class years from now would be the great class experience.
So far, my MGT-200 experience has been an enjoyable one. It had a little rough beginning with Mother Nature not being on our side, but now it seems like it is picking up momentum and starting to establish a routine. As I start to gain more confidence in understanding what is required for success in the course, the better I am able to enjoy what I am learning. When the course began, I volunteered myself to be a team leader. Even though I got a basic understanding through fellow classmates on what the role entailed, I was not exactly sure what I got myself into.
At the beginning of this class, we were introduced to concepts such as critical thinking and diversity, and I learned about them but did not fully understand the big picture until recently. It is not the mere skill of being able to think critically and having the ability to accept others who are different than yourself that matters, but the thing that matters is the fact that these skills allow you to become more open minded about various things and give you the ability to constantly improve yourself. Critical thinking and diversity all play a role in the notion that learning is lifelong, and that statement is regarded as true because we,as humans, truly never stop learning from day
I had difficulties understanding things in middle school but getting into high school was the right part of understanding education systems and being excited about it. My life had changed a lot and I was able to get through struggles because of my education background. Education has been always special thing for me because of what I had to go through to learn. I had appreciated when I got the chance to learn limitless versus had grown very limited
After their presentations, I have realised how different settings are and yet how similar is the process of developing a positive environment that was visible in all presentations. We discussed various ideas and practices which we will implement in our own settings. It is not always easy to change practice in the setting that is already functioning to children’s, parents’ and management’s satisfaction, however, there is always room for improvement and listening to experiences of others encourages me to try it too. The work-based modules are beneficial for me and although I have learnt about methods that have been already present in my setting, I have realised why they are important and how to apply them... ... middle of paper ... ... and thinking about various tasks I complete during the day more than I have done in the past. I have learnt not to jump to conclusions quickly but look at different aspects and reasons first.
I used to believe that I did not perform very well in groups. I am an observer who likes to learn alone. I thought I learned best when I worked on my own. Even though I always knew group work had many positive values, I was more comfortable with the lecture-based approach and resisted group work merely because it involved change, not because it had a collaborative learning approach. However, during the learning community project, I came to realize that I learn more effectively when I work in groups.
When we had a guest speaker named Mark Henry spoke to use about goal setting. Before I wouldn’t put dates or plans with my goals. It helps a lot when you have a date to start the goal and a date when you want to achieve the goal. One thing Mark Henry taught me was that a lot of smaller goals can lead up to one a larger. One of the goals I set this year was to get better grades.
When reflecting on the past semester of English 2328, there are several lessons I feel I have learned which have contributed to the development of my intellect. Throughout this semester, I have repeatedly encountered various lessons that I feel have the potential to advance academically, personally and professionally. I attribute the lessons I have learned to the nature of the assignments and the method of teaching used in this class. To clarify, I feel that I have broadened my knowledge, learned the importance of my personal responsibilities, and learned to interpret differing opinions. Combined, I have recognized that this class has helped me grow, not only as a student, but as an individual as well.
According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) "students often have a hard time telling the difference between everyday anxiety and an actual anxiety disorder" (ADAA Website). For me, FAW helped teach me so many new things it was easier for me to relax and write with confidence knowing I would do well. This was one of the perks I noticed in taking FAW, the better you knew how to properly write, the better you felt about approaching new assignments. It helped make a lot of my assignments easier to handle since I already knew how... ... middle of paper ... ...rganized."
