Long term goals

Everything has to happen in time, my grandma used to say. We are born, we have to get married earlier to get children so we are young enough to take care about them. Then we get old and we have no energy to do anything and our children will take care of us. Get married earlier and be happy, she said.
I did not get marry early. Indeed, I did not want to get married. I wanted to pursue education. Because I come from a different country, it took time for me to develop and shape myself as I am now. I could not get into university in my native country and it took time for me to do it here. Language barrier and life style changed everything. My persistence changed and reshaped my mind.
I got my bachelors degree late in life. One of my advisors told me, why dont you take care about your retirement? You do not need a degree. I still want a graduate degree. I want to succeed. I want to declare that I am a researcher and I am persistent. I have goals, I have determination and the age cann

Admission essay


He stinks!- one girl screamed. I looked around and realized she was talking about a boy next to a window near our teachers desk. He is retarded, another girl told her, leave him alone. It was (....year) or around that time when there were no special education classes. I remember that boy was sitting always alone and sometimes he screamed or had tantrums. During other times he went to girls dress room before the PE class, hoping he could find any of them naked. No one paid attention at him and everyone knew that he would be working as a worker when he grows up.
I wanted to talk to him because I wanted to help. But how could I help if I was bullied myself. So, one time I was sitting alone on the bench and that boy was around. I asked him if he did his homework. He answered he never does his homework and he does not have to. He was repeating his grade twice and eventually they would let him go because they need labor in the country. I asked him why doesnt he want to try again and

Quality Media

With the abundance of media resources at our fingertips, we must have a plan to identify which media sources are quality. When helping children increase their literary skills, only quality media sources should be used in the classroom and recommended to families. In this assignment, you will practice evaluating an app or website aimed at teaching literature to young children, determining whether it is quality.

To prepare for this assignment,

Read A Checklist for Evaluating Diverse Childrens Media
Review The DIG Checklist for Inclusive, High-Quality Childrens Media
Locate one app or website aimed at teaching literature to young children.
Review the Evaluating Quality Media Assignment Template that you will use to complete this assignment.

Literacy Resources

Family literacy emphasizes reading and writing in the home. It is important for parents to promote literacy in the home, but they do not always know what resources they can use with their children. The purpose of this assignment is to increase your knowledge of community resources, online resources, and quality media you could provide to parents in order to promote the literacy development of children in the home.

To prepare for this,

Identify two quality media resources, two community resources, and six online resources that you could provide to parentsto promote their childs literacy development in the home. (Be mindful that free resources are the most helpful for families.)
In your paper,

Describe each resource (two media, two community, and six online) you located in the preparation section.
Explain how parents can use each resource to promote a childs lite

Final Paper

In any career, it is important to have a personal philosophy that can help you to focus your work, understand why you do what you do, and communicate more effectively with others.  This final paper is a 7-9-page paper describing your personal philosophy of human learning.  The goal for this paper is to develop and communicate your own personal view of learning. Ideally, you would be able to use this as a guide for your future career and developing strategies to better facilitate human learning (in the many forms that takes).  You may utilize any theory/concept that we covered in class (and additional topics with approval) to support this philosophy.



It is more critical for you to convey how you relate a theory, idea, or topic to your vision/philosophy of learning than in demonstrating how much you know (though that will likely show up if done sufficiently).  In essence, tell me about what you care about, how you believe people learn, and how this wi
