Reflection: Teacher’s Dairy
One of the things that a future teacher should keep in mind is that “Teacher should never stop learning”. It will always retain in my mind since the day he became my professor. Watching movies, reading books as well the techniques he is doing in the class will retain in my mind. This is where I started getting out of my box. He wanted her students to get out their box. Explore beyond limits. I believe that this is his strategies and techniques.
Teachers Diary was the title of the film because the story revolves about the diary of Ana who happens to be a previous teacher in a rural area in Thailand where the school is located in the middle of river where there is no electricity, no internet, as well as cell phone signal. This Diary becomes an inspiration to the present teacher “Teacher Song” all the physical difficulties and yet again facing loneliness, a loneliness that is outlined by what becomes the symbol of the two main characters, with Teacher Song finding Ann’s diary and immediately identifying himself in her, with all the troubles, all the challenges that had to be faced in order to survive.
The universal truth about teaching was explained here in this movie that though we are now in the 21st century there are some places that were not noticed to have a better way of education. Living in rural areas was also a big challenge when building a better education both for the people who lived here and for the teachers that will adjust their way of living just to cope up with their ways of living.
One of the things to reconsider here is what is what are the people doing for them to survive in their everyday living? Like what are the jobs. Are the learners here have different ambitions in life? Even the teacher will pursue to learners to have a better job or different job. Some of them will have to choose what their parents do for…...

..., Wisdom, Youth I have been blessed on my travels through this world to meet people who have taught much that enabled me to re-evaluate time worn wisdom. My personal experiences of working with the elderly over a two year period and observing and listening to their perspectives I came to believe more and more that a life without purpose and meaning is a life not worth living. For many older people once they have undertaken the roles life has presented them with, they are left with huge amounts of time to fill. To end ones retirement years as many do, by watching the television screen dish out superficial programmes in the name of entertainment, must numb the real heartbreak of feeling useless in a Universe that appears to treat them as someone to be fed and watered, where real communication is lacking and a loneliness and emptiness of purpose is their lot. There was a time when the "senior" years was regarded as a time for the "wisdom of the elders" - perhaps in some cultures this remains true, but here in the U.K. this reflection does not ring true. Yet the wisdom of living a life of purpose and meaning with knowledge that we are part of a universal consciousness and not simply a small human being of little importance was emphasised for me when I met a young ex Israeli Soldier who shared much of his perspectives of his life's experiences with me. Yet where will the future find him say in forty years into the future? When young we do not give thought to how we will......

Supremo Filipino Movie Reflection Paper

...Reflection Paper about Supremo Supremo is a Filipino movie which shows the Spanish era in the Philippines and how the Philippines fought for its independence. Andres Bonifacio was the main character of the movie because it focused on how the Katipunan, which was led by Bonifacio, formed and struggled to fight the Spanish military even though they were severely disadvantaged in terms of training and weaponry. The film also showed the devastation it left in the Philippines after the Filipino-Spanish war. The film started started out by showing Andres Bonifacio’s wife dead and a brief introduction of his past. Afterwards, a small action happened while he was helping some of his fellowmen travel into the city since their house burnt down but they were harassed and attacked by the Spanish military for not bringing their cedulas. Just by seeing this, the film wants to show us how oppressive the Spanish military were and even if their excuse for not bringing their cedulas were valid, they took advantage of them by trying to search their items even when they said that they will just go back which led to bloodshed. I think they just want to express their dominance over the Filipinos and show us that they can do whatever they want to us. To support this idea, there was also a part where they publicly killed a Filipino after judging him guilty for trying to kill a military official and said that may it be a warning to all who would think of going against the government.

..., there are those, who claim that the best teacher is someone who is very knowledgeable about the subject. They say that person with great education surely can be great teacher. Teachers have the very important responsibility of shaping the lives of young children. Therefore all teachers should strive for what can be considered to be a good teacher. A good teacher can be defined as someone who always pushes students to want to do their best while at the same time trying to make learning interesting as well as creative. Teachers, especially at the high school level, must be very creative with their teaching styles. Not everybody learns the same way, nor are they interested in the same things. It is difficult to keep the attention of 15-20 children at the same time. Classroom setup and design is a good way to get and keep the attention of students. Workstations are a good way to encourage different types of learning. By allowing children a chance to choose which activities they want to participate in, children are taking control of their own education. Students are deeply impressed by their teachers, and are prone to copy their characteristics. A popular teacher becomes the role model for his pupils. He is their idol. It is at this point in a student’s life that a teacher takes on the role of a guide. The teacher has the power to stir a wayward youth away from danger and the power to guide a youth to achieve his goals. He has the power to inculcate the ideals of patriotism......

...Ways of Knowing Amelia Hamilton Virginia Commonwealth University Abstract This paper discusses the ways adults learn using behaviorist, cognitive and constructivist lenses to reflect their ways of knowing. I tell how these theories are integrated into my instructional program. There are many lenses for learning that educators use to instruct students. Key elements are the implementation of learning lenses and selection of the processes effective for students. Listening to one’s inner voice is described in Women’s Ways of Knowing. There are five stages as described by Belenky, Clinchy, Goldberger, Tarule, 1986 p.15. The five stages are silence, received knowledge, subjective knowledge, procedural knowledge and constructed knowledge. Crow and Crow 1963, p. 123, further explain: Learning involves change. It is concerned with the acquisition of habits, knowledge, and attitudes. It enables the individual to make both personal and social adjustments. Since the concept of change is inherent in the concept of learning, any change in behavior implies that learning is taking place or has taken place. Learning that occurs during the process of change can be referred to as the learning process . In education, teachers may contemplate the types of learning theory to use with their students. Can teachers distinguish which process is best for their students? What determines the type of learning theory to use? Can the environment determine this or...

... in an unsafe situation, he also put his teacher and probation offices at risk as well because of his threats. FL’s parent really has no legal ground to stand on as the result of FL’s behavior was fueled by his drug use. Although FL may have felt a sense of insecurity as his classmate was rapidly moving through the assignment where FL was not, it is really difficult to prove that FL’s struggle was actually due to his learning disability, or as a direct result of the drugs, seeing as this is not a usual behavior of FL it is safe to say the behavior was a direct reflection of the drug use.

Movie Reflection

...The Rainmaker Extra Credit Paper From the first couple minutes of the film I was shocked at how illegally both the defendant and plaintiff lawyers would act. They would cross the line so many times, trying to twist the truth to make their side of the story sound better than the others. It began to seem like both sides eventually convinced themselves that they were right. In midst of all the conniving that was going on, I was a fan of the way Rudy (Matt Damon) acted by following the rules in order to win his case. Although there was still lying done on their side (mainly just to throw off their opponent lawyers and cause them to believe something happened when it really didn’t) Rudy was never the one to actually commit the act. He would always stay true to the case while forming meaningful connections with his clients. I liked how Rudy would stay true to his word when he spoke to his clients, which is why he was probably so successful in his first case. I previously had imagined the legal system ran in a similar way, but this assumption was based off shows that are much more unrealistic. The movie strengthened the picture I had forming in my head how lawyers don’t like to play by the rules. It proved that they would try to hide evidence from the opposing side that would be perfectly fair to present in court, even going to the extent to shifting around witnesses. In addition to the illegal acts of the lawyers, the movie confirmed the imagine I had of an active courtroom......

Movie Reflection

...Extra Credit: Electric Shadows Reflection The film makes me recall my childhood and my parents’ childhood. It descried a story in a town of Northwest China happened between 1970s and 1980s. At that time, people could only watch the outdoor movie that cemented by celluloid. This film covers the family love, romantic love between two generations and friendship. Also, it gives me a strong feeling of how the Chinese cultural revolution have changed the people’s lives and ideas. From what I learned from the “brief history of China” and Spence’s “the search for modern China”, Mao wanted and desired equal outcomes for all people. Even though the Great Leap Forward and Cultural Revolution caused millions deaths, and it was a miserable failure; it brought fundamental changes to China such as family structure, rural people’s immigration, landscape and so on (Spence & “Brief Story of China”). As shown in the film, the first obvious change is technology. During the Ling Ling’s mother wedding day, there was a small black-white TV as a wedding gift. Everybody were interested in the TV because it was the first time they saw a TV. Later on, the stage of playing celluloid movie was destroyed because everybody were start watching movies at home (Xiao). I felt sad when I saw the scene. I remembered I saw the outdoor celluloid movie when I was young. Me and other kids came very early and sat on the first row. Even though the comfortable chairs were provided, we had no worries of...

Diary

...January, 5th Dear Diary, I am extremely disappointed. I’ve just come back from the hospital where I do volunteer work. It was my first day. There I have to play with children who suffer from cancer, AIDS or other diseases that are not infectious. There are both boys and girls and they are so cute, so playful, and so happy you wouldn’t say they are ill. When I entered the room, I first saw a boy, a man, actually, which was solitary. The others were really cheerful. I made myself comfortable and I went to talk to him. He was a little bit surprised by my movement, but he gave me a shy smile. Then I found out that his name is Max and that he is 21 years old. Nothing unusual. I couldn’t understand why he is so reserved. So I summoned up my courage and I asked him. He sighed and his words were: „I have cancer and I am homosexual. Now you know. You are free to turn your back on me, as everyone else did”. Even though I knew where I was, I couldn’t say a word for a few seconds. And not because I didn’t know what to do and how to react, but I had this image stuck in my head, with all his relatives and friends walking away without a word. “People hit me, they cursed me, swore me, and I couldn’t do anything. They were too much. In a group of 30 people, 29 were against me”. A tear ran down his cheek. I couldn’t hear the voices and the noise around me. It was just the two of us. I took his hand and he calmed down. Not a word was said anymore. I just can’t believe. Is this the...

John Q Movie Reflection Paper

...Another movie based on the inhumane effects of our privatized health care system. I was not expecting the type of movie that it was, especially what John decides to do in order to save his son’s life. By now, I have seen two movies on the healthcare system that have truly amazed me and have left me with powerful messages about what we don’t see daily within our so-called expensive health care system. This movie reminded me of the struggles that those within poorer communities suffer from: lack of healthcare coverage. In comparison, to Patch Adams this movie had a much more dramatic effect to capture the battle between loved ones and saving lives. Furthermore, it captures every part of what actual society would go through if their loved ones were denied entry into a list for heart transplants. I think that this movie serves as another reminder of what we still need to improve in our health care. But see I feel that it’s not only our health care that needs fixing but those within it seem to lack of compassion for families of this sort, who cannot pay for their medical expenses. This movie portrays the most frustrating issue that I’ve seen up to this point in several health care movies and that is the inhumane and materialistic ways that doctors handle their medical attention. I think that this really gives me a new outlet on part of why a nationalized health care is not being considered by the AMA (American Medical Association); these doctors just want their money. These...
