Big Mac? Um no, FRIES! umm..nevermind !

So for my audio assignment I across this very humorous assignment that asked me to pose as a customer at McDonald’s and pretty much give the worker a hard time. I am doing exactly what a customer did to me one time while I worked at Burger King. I am also of course doing a bit of exaggerating so i decided to tease the person on the register using my best Jamaican accent. 🙂

I made tea! Or did I not…..

My assignment for my visual portion of DS106 is entitled, ” I made tea.” In this assignment, I was asked to maintain the information I felt was necessary from a long selected paragraph, short story, etc. You are asked to distort the words until you find the meaning of the right stuff at the end based on your personal findings. It’s pretty interesting.

http://assignments.ds106.us/assignments/i-made-tea/I chose Plato: The Apology: and this is my remaining gist:

“Why is this, Socrates, and what is the origin of I dare say, Athenians, that someone among you will reply, “Why is this, Socrates, and what is the origin of these accusations of you: for there must have been something strange which you have been doing? All this great fame and talk about you would never have arisen if you had been like other men: tell us, then, why this is, as we should be sorry to judge hastily of you.”  If you ask me what kind of wisdom, I reply, such wisdom as is attainable by man, for to that extent I am inclined to believe that I am wise; whereas the persons of whom I was speaking have a superhuman wisdom, which I may fail to describe, because I have it not myself; and he who says that I have, speaks falsely, and is taking away my character. And here, O men of Athens, I must beg you not to interrupt me, even if I seem to say something extravagant.

Is online blogging the new, “it girl” in education?

I was doing my search for a good personal blogger who blogs solely about education. To do this my search started on the GOOGLE search engine of course. To be honest, I found this search a bit tedious and I had to dig and dig to find an interesting personal blogger who actually came up in the search when I typed in, “personal bloggers” I clicked on the image section in GOOGLE and then a million hits later I came across her site. As I read the headline, I was immediately  intrigued. Her blog spot really is so unique in the fact that she is a professional teacher who teaches solely from her RV most times. This teacher believes that education is so important and is the key to success. The most important thing that I found different was the fact that she loves to camp and travel around the world. She said that for her wedding gifts instead of typical fine glass and china she wanted things that she and her husband could make great use of. She asked for camping equiment. Now how does this tie into her as a teacher and her views on education? She is quite different. You see online teachers teaching fgrom the comfort of their home, etc. However, she is a teacher that not only remarkavbly blogs but also she also grades exams, she responds to outstanding numerous e-mails dail and makes them a part of her professional life and she also takes the time to identify the weak spots of each and every single one of her students as if she had known them her entire life.

 

My Vision of College: The Future in Trouble!

The way I see it, I get up in the morning like that singer Kesha feeling like P-Diddy. HAHA. No but I really do get up in the morning knowing that I have class and wanting to know whats the spark and what I really am going to school for. I know deep down I am attending college because, I have always wanted to fulfill my goal of becoming a teacher. I love kids and I know this is what I want to do. However because of the YORK COLLEGE school policy, I have to have a double major and take that along with my Early Childhood Education major. I feel trapped despite the fact that I finished all the General Education Requirements but I do feel like I’m enclosed with a fish bowl and I’m suffocating in the water despite that being my natural habitat. I look at others and their reactions to what they feel college is really like. Some people don’t even come here because they want to but because they are being forced to. I really think that there needs to be some type of want and need to be here. Secondly, I’m sick of going to classes where the professors don’t have a care in the world if they actually make sense while they are giving their lectures. Some kids go to college because they think that by moving away and going to the dorms and living the life and drinking and doing 4/20 all the time that this is the way to go. Well everyone has their own motives as to why they are truly here.

 

Now I ask myself what I want from this experience and where I want to be in the future. I really want school to be some type of safe haven where more experiences and more programs are established. It’s so important. I want college to be the place you graduate from and actually get a decent job in the future. I want college to be all and more even though I’m dreaming. I want it to be a place of education but a place where you can be involved in helping each other. This will happen one day.

 

Below is the truth: I can feel that you will agree with me.

Commentary: We Must Quickly Address the Educational Crisis Facing Young Men of Color

We all took the SAT’s or possibly the ACT exam as a possible entrance exam to get accepted into high school right? The College Board was the main site to access information on test scores, helpful resources, etc. Well College  Board has pinpointed a few issues that are facing today’s society.

To me, America seems like the land of the home and the brave an more importantly, the free. Education is such a huge fundamental and necessity in today’s economy. Today’s economy is filled with a cornucopia of different types of people completely trying to finish their education. One of hose types of people searching for the light are colored (primarily African- American male students)

Today, young men of color face a challenge that lends itself much more towards apathy than activism. Many young men of color are not pushed to their limits by rigorous coursework in high school. Many find themselves adrift at large universities without organized support systems. And some are forced to choose between personal obligations and academic responsibilities.ere is an education crisis facing young men of color. It’s not on the front page of the newspaper. People aren’t organizing on Facebook or Twitter. But it’s out there, and if we fail to address this crisis together, the education level of the entire American workforce will decline for the first time in our history.
