Symptoms And Diagnosis Of My Senior Resident

My Senior Year Of High School

- During my senior year of high school, one of my classes was AP Calculus BC taught by Mr. Trafecanty, yet, he never actually taught the subject. Instead, he created an intimate and collaborative learning environment for our class to teach each other in. This environment was created by having a classroom of only thirteen students, and by having students learn and understand topics collaboratively. And although Mr. Trafecanty never gave a lecture or a powerpoint presentation, he expressed a different role that teachers have to the greatest extent....   [tags: Education, Teacher, Psychology, School]

My Senior Year Of High School

- Unlike most people who have wanted to be teachers since they were young, that was not always the case for me. Growing up, I thought I wanted to be a lawyer seeing as to how I had an older sister that always had to be right. During my junior year of high school I took AP Psychology, loved it and decided that I would be a psychologist, until my guidance counselor told me that that was a bad idea during my senior meeting. After that meeting I decided to reconsider psychology and figure out what I should be when I was older, and that’s when it clicked....   [tags: Education, High school, Teacher, Lesson plan]

My Senior Project On High School

It required a lot of research and learning so that you could present the topic and sound like you know what you are talking about.

My Senior Year Of High School

- Over the course of this class I feel like I have become a much better writer. When I go back and look at some of my Journal entries and assignments that I did at the beginning of the semester, I can’t help but tense up at some of the things I wrote. Sometimes the things I was writing didn’t flow well, or I might have even have missed glaring grammar mistakes. In “Assignment 1” we were given nine different topics to write about. However, all of the topics had one central theme, Reflection. For my essay I chose to focus on the fifth topic, which asked us to “Write about an incident when you felt alienated from your family, peers, or social group....   [tags: Writing, Essay, Pixar, Citation]

Senior Year Can Not Catch Me

- Senior year can aptly be described as a fast-moving blur, but I do remember coming to English class in the beginning of the year, disjointed from taking three months off of writing, and having to regain the schedule I learned from AP Language the previous year. In Mr. Lunardi’s class, my skills improved drastically, but the “awkward phrasing” I thought that I had left in the past, resurfaced, much to my discontent. I first wrote a timed AP English essay in eleventh grade, so bounding right into a forty-minute essay in twelfth grade did not catch me by surprise; what did shock me was that my essays that had steadily increased to a 9 in AP Lang began as a 6 plus for AP Lit....   [tags: Writing, Essay, Literature, Paper]

My Senior Year Of High School

- In my senior year of high school I sat next to a student two years younger than me. He was tall and awkward with a mop of unkept hair on his head. And he wanted to die. Through the year he would occasionally joke about suicide, saying things such as, “Just kill me now, I hate this” in reference to class. I remember one occasion when I asked how he was that day, he responded, “I’ve already tried to kill myself today”. I didn’t realize at first that these were serious statements on his part. It seemed surreal to listen to him talk so calmly about his own death....   [tags: Suicide, The Bridge, Golden Gate Bridge]

Class Size Reduction

- As Aristotle once noted, "the fate of empires depends on the education of youth" (Russo, 2010). It should be comforting that voters regularly rank education as a top priority. Yet, despite countless reform experiments, public schools continue to be bogged down with the same problems today that troubled them twenty years ago. Of all the solutions people have come up with to solve these issues, one of the most popular appears to be class size reduction.
