Preparing for the visit
Based on previous site visits, it was necessary for me to have some background knowledge of the site. Understanding the goals that needed to be accomplished during the visit was also significant since it ensured that I maximized my learning experience. To familiarize myself with the Old Stone Fort State Park; located in Manchester, Tennessee; I visited various websites, blogs and read papers, which had first hand information concerning the site, or were written by people who had visited the park. Since I was anticipating seeing and learning many things I carried a pen, a notebook and a camera for recording the most important things for future reference.

- School field trips are educational, although sometimes the trip can result as monotonous or entertaining. The field trip I took recently to AT&T retail store in Brentwood cannot compete with any trip I have been on lately. The trip was atypical because of the activities that took place, the environment, and seeing the managers connect with the scholars. In addition, seeing my peer’s reaction to the information and being captivated with the topics made it an enjoyable time. Arriving to the AT&T store, we received a warm welcome from the managers, and other workers that work there.... [tags: Sales, Retailing, Consultative selling]

- When I was on a field trip with my fourth grade class, I never thought a day of fun would end so horrible and I would be scarred for life. It was pitch black outside by the time we reached school for our parents to pick us up. My friend Allan’s parents came to get us and about two miles before they dropped me off at home terror struck. At nine years old, this night changed my life and made me realize my strength. As we drove along the dark road, all I could think about was my cozy bed. All of a sudden there was a loud bang and Allan states, “Oh my God that was a gunshot.” I thought he was insane because I use the road we were on almost every day and nothing has ever happened....

Taney memorial we visited; it was whether or not as a nation we should undertake the responsibility of removing our controversial Confederate statues....

- History shows that organized crime presents a very large threat through violence acts and gaining power through both politics and government. These groups seize power through opportunity and violence and damage the communities that they touch. They can endanger the lives of many and manipulate business in order to make monetary gains. But history also shows that such groups can be brought down through precise investigation and determination.

- Friday 1/9 I wanted to reflect on the field trip we took on Friday to the Grotto and to the Synagogue. As the trip got closer I tried to leave my mind open to new experiences that I might encounter on the trip. As I sure many pilgrims did before they traveled to new places. In Cousineau’s book it talks a lot about going to these holy places with an open mind, to be almost at peace within you before going. Going to the Grotto I knew it was going to be more focused on the Catholic faith, which I am a member.... [tags: God, Religion, Islam, Christianity]

- Organized crime, although not easily defined, is a topic of discussion by people all around the world (Hagan, 2006). While everyone should be intellectually responsible for exposing deceits, it is difficult to do so when it is unknown what data is accurate.

Fundamentally and historically, there are wide-ranging rationalizations regarding the operations of organized crime groups, yet it is a matter that may never entirely reveal its truth....
