Ways Of Knowing Reflective Writing

The strengths of my memory Ways of Knowing presentation were how easily my group was able to keep the class engaged. By allowing every one a chance to put their input into the presentation, we kept everyone engaged and new ideas coming into the discussion. We also kept the class interested in what we were presenting by playing several fun games that furthered their understanding of memory as a Way of Knowing. I could tell both our discussion questions and the games we had the class play were working because of how engaged everyone was and how easy it was to keep everyone's attention throughout the presentation. We included a Brain Games video as a fun and interactive way for the class to further their understanding of memory and how it works.

The weak points showed through more in the creating of our presentation and less so in the presentation itself. Our group had a very hard time collaborating and communicating in the time leading up to the presentation. Some of the group membe…

This I Believe- Love Until Why

One quote that has stuck by me for years is and that has affected how I go about trying to live my daily life is by Martin Luther King “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” This quote has inspired me to remember to pour love into everything I do.

We all struggle with issues in our private lives that can start to take a toll on us. You never know what the people around you are going through. Being the light in someone's life is so much more…

How is the Learner Profile reflected in the way I live my life?

The Learner profile in many ways, shows how I live my life on a day to day basis. My strong suits and my weaknesses determine how well I will perform in certain situations and even day to day life.        My strongest trait was caring. I find myself giving back to my friends and the people around me more often than I should. While the reward of giving back and showing compassion to the people around me often has a positive payoff, it more often than not leaves me in a very vulnerable position where I am easily hurt. I often find myself giving more than my significant other, especially in relationships, whether that be love or even time. This can be a huge drawback for me in life but it makes me who I am and has shown me that at the end of the day no matter the situation I always try to be compassionate towards others.        My weakest trait was balanced. While I would like to be balanced and know how to make time for the things in my life, I have trouble balancing school, family,…
