      th
      November 2009The Grade I Deserve for the Critical Thinking CourseAt the beginning of this semester, we were asked by lecturer what Critical Thinking is, but most of us do not know what it is or maybe there are some students do know but just that they do notspeak out their answer, therefore none of us answer this question. According to her, it is to let uslearn how to think from a different point of view. At first I am thinking, why should I take thissubject, as it is not related to the course which I choose to study (I am taking Business andHospitality Course). Educational system nowadays for primary schools and secondary schools arenormally provided with memorization-based education, students are expected to absorb thatinformation passively then repeat what they memorize in the test or examination paper. Accordingto Bassham, G. et al. (2008), ‘…is to teach students how to thinkthat is, how to becomeindependent, self-educated thinkers and learners.’ Without the ability to think critically, everysituation that a person comes across would have to be considered in isolation from all other situations. When a person encounters a problem that is a new one, he or she may able to usecritical thinking to solve those problems. Therefore, the grade in my mind, that I deserve to get for this subject, is grade B because of the academic performance and the effort that I will put duringmy exam time.The marks that I have for my test is 66 over 100, while the marks I got for my mid-termexamination is 12.9 over 20. Besides, I attended all the class since the beginning of this semester,I never miss a class. I will continue with full attendance, until this semester end, if nothingunexpected happens. Therefore, until now, I have got 8.2 marks over 10 marks for attendance.The coursework marks which include test and mid-term examination that I have known so far aremarks 40 over 60, and I have had marks 27.7 out of 40. I will get 29.5 out of 40 with a fullattendance that worth total 10 marks. In order for me to get at least 65 marks, or grade B in thissubject, I still need to gain another extra 35.5 marks in the final paper and final exam. According tothe prediction for the result in final paper and final exam which base on my test and mid-semester examination result, I will get 12 marks for my final paper and 25 marks for my final examination. Byadding up this forecast result in final paper and final examination and the marks that I have got in

      DS 3006 Critical Thinking
      the 40 percent coursework marks, I will get a total of 66.5 marks, which over the minimumrequirement for grade B, which I deserve to get in my mind.Stated in Huber, D. (2006, pg 134.), the root of concept of critical thinking can be traces toSocrates, the ancient Greek philosopher.’…It is important to ask deep questions and probe intothinking sequence, seek evidence, closely examine reasoning and assumptions, analyze basicconcept, and trace out implications’. People often cannot rationally think of the solution for problemof it is related or even not related to them due to our self-belief, the limited knowledge and theeducational system which is too narrow for us to think in different dimension. After I have studycritical thinking, it helps me in better thinking, and I know that this skill will assist me to survivebetter in my future career because that is the reason why I am studying here. I have absorbedknowledge such as to review an article by evaluating its argument, does it support by point which isvalid or cogent, is the argument follows logical correctness and more. We do practice to refute theargument with our point in order to understand better about the critical thinking skills that we havelearnt in class. However, the part which I like most is categorical logic and propositional logic.Though is it not easy to solve the questions sometimes, but I feel like I am attending mathematicalclass when lecturer teaching these 2 chapter, which is more akin to practice skills if compare toother chapter that need better English language knowledge. These 2 chapters assist me to studycritical thinking better and easier because it is a formal system which allows me to determinewhether a sentence or argument is logic or not. Hence, it will help me to gain a better grade incritical thinking because I will try my best for higher marks in final paper and final examination.Due to the moderate performance in the test and mid-term examination, I would therefore forecastmy result for this essay to be moderate as well. As stated in Craver, K. W. (1999, pg.3.), ‘…Criticalthinking reflects self-regulation of the thought process’. Lecturer may teach us what critical thinkingis, and the process to apply all the skills. We, who as a student, are the one that should learn allthe knowledge because lecturer cannot be with us until the end of the day, or at least they are notallowed to be with us during examination period. I do admit that I am not that good in Englishwriting skills because of my poor grammar and lack of reading, and I cannot improve much within amonth, therefore I probably cannot gain higher marks in final paper. However, I will need to obtainat least 63 marks in final examination in order to achieve the grade that I wish to deserve. I amquite confidence with the diagramming part, categorical reasoning part and propositional logic.Though I am not so good in paraphrasing, inductive reasoning, recognising arguments, andfallacies, but I do believe that if I will do better by practice more. I probably will gain more than half of the points in final examination paper for section A which is multiple-choice question part thatcontribute 30 out of 100 marks, and section B which is categorical reasoning, propositional logicand inductive reasoning part that contribute 30 out of 100 marks.

      DS 3006 Critical Thinking
      Critical thinking skill is one of the skills that can be implement in the future career for greater success if compare to those who did not learn Critical Thinking before. Stated in Regal, P.J. (1990,pg.80.) ‘ …critical thinking skills are also important from the individual’s point of view, if only interms of his or her relative ability to compete and survive’. Knowledge is powerful, if we have theskills to use it correctly. Millionaires could live without their elite schools certificate or their property,but intelligence were their main assets as they could not manage to reach the stage of millionairewithout their poor judgement in their business. After studying critical thinking for a semester, withthe knowledge that I have gained in the class and self-reading, therefore I do have the confidencethat I deserve to get B in critical thinking subject due to the support point that provided in this essayand also with the perseverance that I will study hard for final examination.(1,192 words)Reference:Bassham, G., Irwin, W., Nardone, H., & Wallace, James.

      Essay Writing Website Where You Save More Than You Spend!

      You may have no idea, but some of your peers show great academic results and catch up with the rest of their duties thanks to the online writing services. What are the main problems an average student may face today? According to surveys, many young people experience difficulties with homework due to the next reasons:

      • Lack of time
      • Tiring part-time job
      • Family responsibilities
      • No interest in the subject
      • Failure to understand the topic
      • Poor teaching methods

      Let’s be sincere: laziness is also a factor sometimes. Often, a desire to attend best friend’s home party or local rock gig is stronger than a need to study. It is fair to admit, however, that teachers nowadays almost leave no free time. They overwhelm young people with tons of academic assignments. The fact that some tasks are different by their nature and purposes and various citation formats exist makes it all even more complicated and tricky.

      Academia presupposes extensive research along with 100% original content. Those are two other challenges. It means a student has to be a great reader, writer, researcher, critical thinkers in speaker (some assignments like presentations requires to present personal ideas in front of the audience). From one side, homework is a way to test the student’s knowledge and provide them with all the necessary skills they will need for their future career. On the other side, having too many tasks may lead to the stressful situations, and it is a direct threat to anyone’s mental health.

      Still, academic paper writing is the most effective way to pass the course. Even if you fail the final exam, you may earn enough credits to move on thanks to the written homework papers.

      We have listed more than enough good reasons to start using a writing service. You live in a technologically advanced world, so you should not skip your chance to improve your academic performance and get rid of stresses!

      Academic Writing Experts with All Necessary Qualifications and Skills

      The idea to hire qualified essay writers has come to the mind of our founders more than ten years ago. One day, our CEO was helping his own child with homework, and he was simply boiled over the amount of assignments teachers assigned to his only son. He realized the main reason why his little kid could not manage to spend at least a single weekend in a month with his parents. Being an expert writer, a graduate of Princeton, professor in the past, and talented manager, this man decided to form a team of experts to assist teenagers around the world with their high school, college, and university tasks. That is how Writing Bee was born. Years have passed, and our team has expanded to more than 1,500 writers and editors. They are all:

      • Native speakers
      • Certified writers
      • Graduates of the prestigious US or UK universities
      • D. or MA holders
      • Armed to the teeth with rich experience and special writing tools
      • Experts in specific fields of study

      Thanks to these qualities, we can help with any sort of assignment on any topic. We cover more than 80 disciplines, including the newly introduced like e-commerce or gender studies. Some of the writers specialize in several subjects at a time.

      We also divide the teams of writers based on the academic level. While some of them deal with high school essays and research papers, others specialize in dissertation writing and even admissions essays and resumes. It makes sense that all of these tasks require a different level of preparation. Most of them can be referred to as custom papers.

      What does a custom essay mean? It means a paper written from scratch according to your requirements. Our texts are always unique and fresh.

      Of course, if you do not want to order the whole paper from zero, you may send your draft to the team of editors so that they can detect and fix grammar, spelling, punctuation, and formatting mistakes. On the whole, you can order one of the following products from our team:

      • Essay
      • Book or movie review
      • Case study solution
      • Lab report
      • Research paper
      • Term paper
      • Coursework
      • Thesis
      • Dissertation
      • Presentation and speech
      • Personal statement
      • Resume and cover letter

      As you can see, we can cope with any writing task. They all have different topics, structure, format, and purpose, so it is hard to keep in mind all of the types of writing. However, it is not a problem for a professional from our service. We hire each candidate attentively, making them pass a severe selection process where the numerous tests, sample writing, and professional interviews are included.

      For some of you, it may still be a good question, ‘Why we?” We are ready to explain what makes our team so special.

      Reasons to Pick Our Service

      You may have noticed that there are plenty of writing services while surfing the web. Right, Google shows some other results, so it was not easy to penetrate the top list. In this section, we will explain why WritingBee is the top recommended writing website for you!

      You can find numerous positive testimonials from clients just like you on our website. We kindly ask each customer to share his or her impressions with the rest of the potential customers. One of the reasons is to estimate the satisfaction rate. Another goal is to find out what we can improve about our company. That is why every feedback from our clients matters to us.

      Based on the comments left by our customers and the overall analysis, we have discovered the main reason why we are at the top:

      • Professional writer. We have already discussed this point.
      • Round-the-clock support. Good support always leaves a positive impression on a client. Our team works 24/7 trying to solve any issues that you may face. They are here to resolve any disputes, provide quick help, connect you with a writer in case he or she is missing, handle financial cases, etc. Reach our representatives for the first aid via live chat, e-mail, or phone. You may contact the assigned writer with the help of direct messages.
      • No plagiarism! 0-plagiarism tolerance means that every work is 100% unique. Our expert’s writer papers from zero to hero! Once the text is finished, our editing team scans it with the leading anti-plagiarism software to make sure there is no plagiarized
      • Premium quality. Our QAD checks and edits every finished order to eliminate any grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors. They also take care of format. Finally, they may enrich your paper’s vocabulary. We are using the same software that your professors, so they will see the same perfect results while checking your essay.
      • The question of price is something that terrifies many students until they see our pricing list or the total fee per order. Thanks to the loyal discounts, bonuses, and regular special offers that we send to you, the final fee of order is really low compared to the fees of many other online writing companies. The more you order regarding pages or words, the higher the discount is. This formula makes every client save more than he or she spends! That is what we mean in the very beginning.
      • Full anonymity. Confidentiality is another priority. Our team knows how important it is to keep your personal information in secret, and our staff keeps silent.

      Now you know why your peers prefer our academic service. One more thing you might be interested in is how to order your papers and learn the prices.

      How to Order Custom Writing of a Premium Level

      The final question that may pop up in your mind is how to place an order. It is a logical one. There is nothing simpler that you can do! You just:

      • Fill out the order form
      • Proceed with payment
      • Keep in touch with your writer
      • Receive the top-notch paper on the chosen topic

      To be more specific, you list the requirements in an order form. You have to mention the subject you study, topic, academic level, number of pages or words, quantity of sources to be sued and cited, preferred citation format (writing style), and, of course, deadline. Remember that we can cope with the highest deadlines like something around 3-6 hours if you order an essay. Still, we recommend placing orders a bit ahead. You will see the total fee after completing the order form.

      It is time for the payment process. Choose one f the safe, popular methods (PayPal, Payoneer, Skrill, credit/debit cards, etc.) We ensure the security of your personal data and payments in particular. You may pay partially or once your order is done.

      After you receive a final paper, decide whether it is good enough or needs improvements. The deal is done – grab your desired grade in the end!

      College Admission Essay Examples

      ESSAY #1

      This summer I participated in an archeological dig at a local park where I worked to uncover an old homestead. I found out about the dig through my job doing yard work for an elderly couple that lived near the park. I was skimming the dirt out from around the doorstep rock because we were going to move the rock back into place.  Suddenly, I noticed a triangular piece of metal protruding from the ground which I picked up.  It was just a file, like the ones that I had seen in my dad’s toolbox. Through the discovery of early settlers’ artifacts such as the file, broken ceramics, and a Victorian stovetop, I learned that the lives of the settlers were similar to our lives in some respects by the tools that they used, but very different in other ways. Just as finding the file at the dig showed a connection between the past and present, I hope my studies at the University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point will prepare me to make the connections between life, history, politics, art, and the environment.

      Through traveling to every region of the United States as well as parts of Europe, I have learned to be more accepting of different ideas and I have developed an interest in international politics. Trips alone did not ignite my interest in politics.  Reading the daily newspaper, the magazine, The Nation, and the Dune series of science fiction books, have further stoked my interest in the way governments gain and use power. Dune deals with many concepts such as it is ultimately the people who give leaders power. My work in the Wisconsin primary campaign for Barac Obama gave me additional practice in learning how government should respond to the concerns of people. At UWSP I want to learn more about the way governments operate and further understand how government can positively affect the lives of its citizens.

      What we do in the world, even writing this essay, effects the environment.  This fact fascinates me.  In addition to many family camping trips, I attended several camps involving the outdoors. One of these camps was a Kayaking trip that took us to Voyageurs National Park. There I realized the importance of preserving the environment, which led me to sign up for Ecology and, this year, AP Environmental Sciences. I hope to continue the study of the relationship between the government and the environment at UWSP.

      It would be a privilege for me to attend a university such as Stevens Point because of my passion for knowledge. After visiting campus, I was impressed by its wide range of interesting departments, many of which align with my particular areas of interest in political science and natural resources conservation. It is because of my wide range of interests, and my independent efforts to pursue these interests in high school and in my personal life, that I feel I would enrich the Stevens Point community. I will bring hard work, curiosity, and a passion for greater knowledge to college and hope to have the opportunity to attend the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point.

      ESSAY #2

       

                  Joining a club can be one of the most rewarding and significant things you do during your high school career.  As I’ve grown older, I’ve discovered my passions and understood more of who I am.  One club in particular has influenced me immensely and provided a radical and life-changing experience.  The club I joined is called Best Buddies.  Since my sister Jennifer has Downs Syndrome, she has been a member of Best Buddies since I was a freshman.  It was through my realization of Jennifer’s true beauty that I decided to become a part of that club.  The goal of Best Buddies is straightforward: create a friendship with someone who has a physical or mental disability.  This simple but prevailing idea has exposed me to unimaginable experiences and some of the best times of my life. (It’s not really a value but a concept)

                  My best buddy Victor, is one of the most outgoing, comedic, and genuine persons I’ve ever met.  From the beginning of my joining Best Buddies, I knew that we would be inseparable.  In the first few weeks of our friendship, Victor and I wrote letters to each other and placed them in the mailboxes in the Best Buddies office.  Soon, we began to hang out on weekends doing many fun activities such as playing basketball, going out for ice cream, watching movies and, my favorite,  my beat boxing while Victor dances.  After a few weeks, Victor and I saw each other on a regular basis.  We had lunch together in the cafeteria on Tuesdays and hung out on Saturday afternoons.  Since Victor and I are both creatures of habit, this schedule worked perfectly for us.

                  In mid-October, the Best Buddies board asked me to make a speech with Victor about Best Buddies at a ceremony.  It turns out that we were to speak in front of 250 people at a formal banquet at the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown Chicago.  What was so remarkable about this process was that while I was stressing over what to say and how to act, Victor didn’t even break a sweat.  It was lovely because he held my hand before we made our speech and said, “I’m so excited.”   That kind of confidence was just what I needed and to see that shine through Victor was a beautiful quality.  As a result, the speech was a success and will be the kind of memory I will tell my children about when I grow up.

                  Part of what made the speech significant was that I met wonderful people, some with disabilities and some without. I also played an important role in a prominent event, making a speech about something and someone I genuinely loved and cared about.  What was most memorable, however, was that this opportunity occurred simply by my being a friend.  Best Buddies taught me that being a friend is one of the simplest yet powerful choices you can make in life.  I look forward to continuing my friendship with Victor this year and hopefully learning better dance moves.

      Essay#3

                  The shrill “cock-a-doodle-doo” alerted me every morning that I was not at home.

                  The Elizondas lived in Guadalupe, a town consisting of a dilapidated supermarket and a shabby soccer field.  After a ten-hour trip to Costa Rica, the family members greeted me with hugs and a plate of freshly made cookies.  The cookies reminded me of home, except nothing at home looked anything like Guadalupe.

      “Estamos sirviendo carne para la cena” said Senora Elizonda, later that first day.  I translated her words to mean “We are serving meat for dinner.”

      How do you say “vegetarian” in Spanish?  Apparently it would take more than charades to communicate the fact that I didn’t eat meat to my new host family.  The Elizondas spoke no English while my Spanish was mediocre (at best) because I had so few opportunities to speak Spanish.  I came to Costa Rica to experience a new place and new people.

      The gastrointestinal distress that plagued me the entire time I was there had begun.  My stomach churned as we hiked up the hill to the Elizondas’ house.  While we walked, the Elizonda children peppered me with questions in a language I had barely mastered.  Looking at the town below, I realized for the first time in my life that I was completely on my own.  Approaching the coffee farm on which they lived, filled with cows, roosters, and mangy dogs, I had the sense that the Elizondas were poor but, as I later learned, in this underprivileged community, they were considered well off.

      As I entered the house, I smelled cow manure but I would have to adjust during the next two weeks no matter how out of place I felt.  There was something peaceful about their hilltop house, secluded from the rest of the town.

                  “You will take Maria and Catalina’s bedroom,” Senora Elizonda said.

                  “But where will they sleep?” I asked in my halting Spanish.

                  “On the floor next to our bedroom”

                  Their hospitality amazed me.  I felt displaced, while they did everything to make me feel at home. As my stomach worsened, the family offered me tea and meat.  I thought, “I haveto figure out how to say ‘vegetarian.’”  Finally, I admitted to feeling sick.  But going to the doctor was not a possibility.  For the Elizondas, a medical visit needed to be a matter of life or death.  I had to cope as best I could.

                  After dinner, I remembered a pack of Uno cards I brought from home. We had been encouraged to share something from our lives back home with our host family.  Instantly, everyone was thrilled.  Uno was easy to teach and fun!  We played until I forgot all about my upset stomach.  Being able to relate to them this freely made me comfortable.  For the rest of my stay with the Elizondas, I was able to forget about my physical discomfort and assimilate to their culture.  By the end of my stay in Guadalupe, being woken each morning by the sound of roosters felt like home.           

       

      Essay #4

       

      A Woman’s Worth

       

                   Maya Angelou’s poem, Phenomenal Woman, created a bond between my mother and me. I never knew a woman with so much power yet she didn’t know her own worth. Becoming a Civil Engineer will allow me to stand out in a male dominated field doing work I love. One day I will proudly walk the stage to gain my diploma. And when that day arrives I will look at my mother and remember how she gave me a piece of her advice in that poem to becoming the type of woman she wanted me to be.

                  Phenomenal woman to me highlighted that the desire for all women seems to be an authentic one. They want to be Beautiful. In the definition of beautiful, we all want to be unique and to reach our full potential as woman. Many women though, such as my mother, feel they don’t have what it takes to reach that potential so fall to society’s aim for inherent beauty and accomplishment in women. Ms. Angelou though taught me that it is an unreasonable goal to reach society’s demands but that a woman builds her own uniqueness through 5 traits. Confidence, strength, drive, character, and self beauty I believe is what my Mother wanted me to embody by Maya Angelou’s definition because she was always afraid to.  

                  Confidence, strength, drive, character, and self beauty is what will drive me the most to reach my goal in becoming a Civil Engineer. I always stood out and loved science, math, and art but I’m sure most all Civil Engineers do. To be able to bring to life these elements all in one is what astonishes me. I remember at age 11 walking through Downtown Chicago and saying to my mother, “Wow, these buildings are so big and cool!” I will never forget her response at that moment. “Well who knows, maybe one day we will come back here and you will be able to say to me, ‘I had part in creating that building Mom.’” Until I reach that goal, I will strive for that moment in my life.

                

       

      Note About Changes

      I think this was definitely my best essay because of how much it explained not only what I learned from this quote but how it can carry me through my life in college and beyond. I think when writing a college essay this is one time that we get to be selfish. I remember how at first this essay started out as an essay about my mother. What Ms. Moynahan told me was to make sure I am writing the essay about me. I think this is very important because the point of college essays to me is to tell the college something about yourself that makes you stand out, not just the people or things that motivates you but what out of that motivation can help you succeed in college. I what Ms. Moynahan also helped me realize was that it is also important to realize that when you’re writing that it is to relate to whatever major you do. At first I barely talked about my major. Colleges I feel don’t want you to just tell them a story about the major you picked, but what in your life experiences can you contribute to your field of study so that you will have the most success after college.

      Definition of Freedom. :State of being free from control. Synonym: Power. This is what it says in thesaurus.com but I feel in relation to my life, it should be revised. Definition of Freedom. : Trying to figure out what to add into my part of the documentary. Synonym: Control.

      In the summer of 2011 I had the amazing opportunity to work with a group of ten girls from all over the Chicago area on a project sponsored by Columbia College Chicago Media and Technology Department on the issue of Women in Sports. The first day I walked into the room I was greeted by Mindy Faber and Amber Mohammed, the coordinators, and 8 other girls. We were all different.  We varied from race and ethnicity, to the way we dressed. Even with those differences however, we shared a unity and understanding of what it was to be women in a male dominated world. From Dr. Cooky from Purdue University teaching us the different media coverage of women through competence, sexualization, and ambivalence, to the interview we conducted with WNBA player Epiphanny Prince, each day I came with my own opinions and experiences and came out with a new mindset and lens to view the world with.

       In September, we were given the task to create a short video on the topic of women in sports at our own schools. After capturing some footage I started to edit it and realized how much freedom I was given to create this video. At the same time, as I began creating the video, freedom also reminded me of how limited and controlled the video had to be, focusing on one chosen topic.

      I went home that night and thought about my life so far. My grandma used to tell me that the world offers whatever I want, but it’s up to me to control what I get out of it. Whether it is my dream of becoming a Civil Engineer or being able to go to college, I control my future by taking action and I have the freedom to accomplish anything that I put my heart and mind into.

      I went to school the next morning and with a new feel of understanding and confidence while I continued to edit my documentary

       

       

      Notes About Changes

       

      What I had a lot of trouble with was my grammatical structure and errors. It is very important to have some adult, specifically someone who deals with reading, writing, or English. In this case, it is important to make sure you start your essays early! I had my English teacher Mr. Schenck and Ms. Moyhanan both proofread my essays. Something I think is important is how you start your essay. When I met Ms. Moyhanan, she talked about how to start an essay. We have to remember that the people who will be reading these essays will have seen many similar essay structure and beginnings, such as a quote or a question. I thought it was different to start with a standard definition, but then a definition that related to a situation in my life. Also what I tried to do was pick something in my experience that would seem overlooked by a lot of people, and analyzing it in relation to something broader, such as college and my goals. Any experience that happens in your life does affect a part of you whether big or small.

      The “Burying Grandma” Example College Essay Example

      Written for the Common App college application essays “Tell us your story” prompt.

      They covered the precious mahogany coffin with a brown amalgam of rocks, decomposed organisms, and weeds. It was my turn to take the shovel, but I felt too ashamed to dutifully send her off when I had not properly said goodbye. I refused to throw dirt on her. I refused to let go of my grandmother, to accept a death I had not seen coming, to believe that an illness could not only interrupt, but steal a beloved life.

      When my parents finally revealed to me that my grandmother had been battling liver cancer, I was twelve and I was angry–mostly with myself. They had wanted to protect me–only six years old at the time–from the complex and morose concept of death. However, when the end inevitably arrived, I wasn’t trying to comprehend what dying was; I was trying to understand how I had been able to abandon my sick grandmother in favor of playing with friends and watching TV. Hurt that my parents had deceived me and resentful of my own oblivion, I committed myself to preventing such blindness from resurfacing.

      I became desperately devoted to my education because I saw knowledge as the key to freeing myself from the chains of ignorance. While learning about cancer in school I promised myself that I would memorize every fact and absorb every detail in textbooks and online medical journals. And as I began to consider my future, I realized that what I learned in school would allow me to silence that which had silenced my grandmother. However, I was focused not with learning itself, but with good grades and high test scores. I started to believe that academic perfection would be the only way to redeem myself in her eyes–to make up for what I had not done as a granddaughter.  

      However, a simple walk on a hiking trail behind my house made me open my own eyes to the truth. Over the years, everything–even honoring my grandmother–had become second to school and grades. As my shoes humbly tapped against the Earth, the towering trees blackened by the forest fire a few years ago, the faintly colorful pebbles embedded in the sidewalk, and the wispy white clouds hanging in the sky reminded me of my small though nonetheless significant part in a larger whole that is humankind and this Earth. Before I could resolve my guilt, I had to broaden my perspective of the world as well as my responsibilities to my fellow humans.   

      Volunteering at a cancer treatment center has helped me discover my path. When I see patients trapped in not only the hospital but also a moment in time by their diseases, I talk to them. For six hours a day, three times a week, Ivana is surrounded by IV stands, empty walls, and busy nurses that quietly yet constantly remind her of her breast cancer. Her face is pale and tired, yet kind–not unlike my grandmother’s. I need only to smile and say hello to see her brighten up as life returns to her face. Upon our first meeting, she opened up about her two sons, her hometown, and her knitting group–no mention of her disease. Without even standing up, the three of us—Ivana, me, and my grandmother–had taken a walk together.

      Cancer, as powerful and invincible as it may seem, is a mere fraction of a person’s life. It’s easy to forget when one’s mind and body are so weak and vulnerable. I want to be there as an oncologist to remind them to take a walk once in a while, to remember that there’s so much more to life than a disease. While I physically treat their cancer, I want to lend patients emotional support and mental strength to escape the interruption and continue living. Through my work, I can accept the shovel without burying my grandmother’s memory.

      THE “PUNK ROCK PHILOSOPHER” COLLEGE ESSAY EXAMPLE


      This was written for the Common App college application essays, and works for multiple prompts (or none of them, because the author is that cool):

      I am on Oxford Academy’s Speech and Debate Team, in both the Parliamentary Debate division and the Lincoln-Douglass debate division. I write screenplays, short stories, and opinionated blogs and am a regular contributor to my school literary magazine, The Gluestick. I have accumulated over 300 community service hours that includes work at homeless shelters, libraries, and special education youth camps. I have been evaluated by the College Board and have placed within the top percentile.

      But I am not any of these things. I am not a test score, nor a debater, nor a writer. I am an anti-nihilist punk rockphilosopher. And I became so when I realized three things:

      1) That the world is ruled by underwear. There is a variety of underwear for a variety of people. You have your ironed briefs for your businessmen, your soft cottons for the average, and hemp-based underwear for your environmental romantics. But underwear do not only tell us about who we are, they also influence our daily interactions in ways most of us don’t even understand. For example, I have a specific pair of underwear that is holey, worn out but surprisingly comfortable. And despite how trivial underwear might be, when I am wearing my favorite pair, I feel as if I am on top of the world. In any case, these articles of clothing affect our being and are the unsung heroes of comfort.

      2) When I realized I cannot understand the world. I recently debated at the Orange County Speech League Tournament, within the Parliamentary Division. This specific branch of debate is an hour long, and consists of two parties debating either side of a current political issue. In one particular debate, I was assigned the topic: “Should Nation States eliminate nuclear arms?” It so happened that I was on the negative side and it was my job to convince the judges that countries should continue manufacturing nuclear weapons. During the debate, something strange happened: I realized that we are a special breed of species, that so much effort and resources are invested to ensure mutual destruction. And I felt that this debate in a small college classroom had elucidated something much more profound about the scale of human existence. In any case, I won 1st place at the tournament, but as the crowd cheered when my name was called to stand before an audience of hundreds of other debaters, and I flashed a victorious smile at the cameras, I couldn’t help but imagine that somewhere at that moment a nuclear bomb was being manufactured, adding to an ever-growing stockpile of doom. And that’s when I realized that the world was something I will never understand.

      3) When I realized I was a punk rocker philosopher. One summer night, my friend took me to an underground hardcore punk rock show. It was inside a small abandoned church. After the show, I met and became a part of this small community. Many were lost and on a constant soul-search, and to my surprise, many, like myself, did not have a blue Mohawk or a nose piercing. Many were just ordinary people discussing Nietzsche, string theory, and governmental ideologies. Many were also artists creating promotional posters and inventive slogans for stickers. They were all people my age who could not afford to be part of a record label and did something extraordinary by playing in these abandoned churches, making their own CDs and making thousands of promotional buttons by hand. I realized then that punk rock is not about music nor is it a guy with a blue Mohawk screaming protests. Punk rock is an attitude, a mindset, and very much a culture. It is an antagonist to the conventional. It means making the best with what you have to contribute to a community. This was when I realized that I was a punk rock philosopher.

      The world I come from consists of underwear, nuclear bombs, and punk rockers. And I love this world. My world is inherently complex, mysterious, and anti-nihilist. I am David Phan, somebody who spends his weekends debating in a three piece suit, other days immersed within the punk rock culture, and some days writing opinionated blogs about underwear.

      But why college? I want a higher education. I want more than just the textbook fed classrooms in high school. A community which prizes revolutionary ideals, a sharing of multi-dynamical perspectives, an environment that ultimately acts as a medium for movement, similar to the punk rock community. I do not see college as a mere stepping stone for a stable career or a prosperous life, but as a supplement for knowledge and self-empowerment; it is a social engine that will jettison us to our next paradigm shift.


      The “Grandma’s Kimchi” College Essay Example

      Every Saturday morning, I’d awaken to the smell of crushed garlic and piquant pepper. I would stumble into the kitchen to find my grandma squatting over a large silver bowl, mixing fat lips of fresh cabbages with garlic, salt, and red pepper. That was how the delectable Korean dish, kimchi, was born every weekend at my home.

      My grandma’s specialty always dominated the dinner table as kimchi filled every plate. And like my grandma who had always been living with us, it seemed as though the luscious smell of garlic would never leave our home. But even the prided recipe was defenseless against the ravages of Alzheimer’s that inflicted my grandma’s mind.

      Dementia slowly fed on her memories until she became as blank as a brand-new notebook. The ritualistic rigor of Saturday mornings came to a pause, and during dinner, the artificial taste of vacuum-packaged factory kimchi only emphasized the absence of the family tradition. I would look at her and ask, “Grandma, what’s my name?” But she would stare back at me with a clueless expression. Within a year of diagnosis, she lived with us like a total stranger.

      One day, my mom brought home fresh cabbages and red pepper sauce. She brought out the old silver bowl and poured out the cabbages, smothering them with garlic and salt and pepper. The familiar tangy smell tingled my nose. Gingerly, my grandma stood up from the couch in the living room, and as if lured by the smell, sat by the silver bowl and dug her hands into the spiced cabbages. As her bony hands shredded the green lips, a look of determination grew on her face. Though her withered hands no longer displayed the swiftness and precision they once did, her face showed the aged rigor of a professional. For the first time in years, the smell of garlic filled the air and the rattling of the silver bowl resonated throughout the house.

      That night, we ate kimchi. It wasn’t perfect; the cabbages were clumsily cut and the garlic was a little too strong. But kimchi had never tasted better. I still remember my grandma putting a piece in my mouth and saying, “Here, Dong Jin. Try it, my boy.”

      Seeing grandma again this summer, that moment of clarity seemed ephemeral. Her disheveled hair and expressionless face told of the aggressive development of her illness.

      But holding her hands, looking into her eyes, I could still smell that garlic. The moments of Saturday mornings remain ingrained in my mind. Grandma was an artist who painted the cabbages with strokes of red pepper. Like the sweet taste of kimchi, I hope to capture those memories in my keystrokes as I type away these words.

      A piece of writing is more than just a piece of writing. It evokes. It inspires. It captures what time takes away.

      My grandma used to say: “Tigers leave furs when they die, humans leave their names.” Her legacy was the smell of garlic that lingered around my house. Mine will be these words.

      The “Travel and Language” College Essay Example

      Written for the Common App college application essays “tell us your story” prompt.

      When I was very little, I caught the travel bug. It started after my grandparents first brought me to their home in France and I have now been to twenty-nine different countries. Each has given me a unique learning experience.

      At five, I marveled at the Eiffel Tower in the City of Lights. When I was eight, I stood in the heart of Piazza San Marco feeding hordes of pigeons, then glided down Venetian waterways on sleek gondolas. At thirteen, I saw the ancient, megalithic structure of Stonehenge and walked along the Great Wall of China, amazed that the thousand-year-old stones were still in place.

      It was through exploring cultures around the world that I first became interested in language.

      It began with French, which taught me the importance of pronunciation. I remember once asking a store owner in Paris where Rue des Pyramides was. But when I pronounced it PYR–a–mides instead of pyr–A–mides, with more accent on the A, she looked at me bewildered.

      In the eighth grade, I became fascinated with Spanish and aware of its similarities with English through cognates. Baseball in Spanish, for example, is béisbol, which looks different but sounds nearly the same. This was incredible to me as it made speech and comprehension more fluid, and even today I find that cognates come to the rescue when I forget how to say something in Spanish.

      Then, in high school, I developed an enthusiasm for Chinese. As I studied Chinese at my school, I marveled how if just one stroke was missing from a character, the meaning is lost. I loved how long words were formed by combining simpler characters, so Huǒ (火) meaning fire and Shān (山) meaning mountain can be joined to create Huǒshān (火山), which means volcano. I love spending hours at a time practicing the characters and I can feel the beauty and rhythm as I form them.

      Interestingly, after studying foreign languages, I was further intrigued by my native tongue. Through my love of books and fascination with developing a sesquipedalian lexicon (learning big words), I began to expand my English vocabulary. Studying the definitions prompted me to inquire about their origins, and suddenly I wanted to know all about etymology, the history of words. My freshman year I took a world history class and my love for history grew exponentially. To me, history is like a great novel, and it is especially fascinating because it took place in my own world.

      But the best dimension that language brought to my life is interpersonal connection. When I speak with people in their native language, I find I can connect with them on a more intimate level. I’ve connected with people in the most unlikely places, finding a Bulgarian painter to use my few Bulgarian words with in the streets of Paris, striking up a conversation in Spanish with an Indian woman who used to work at the Argentinian embassy in Mumbai, and surprising a library worker by asking her a question in her native Mandarin.

      I want to study foreign language and linguistics in college because, in short, it is something that I know I will use and develop for the rest of my life. I will never stop traveling, so attaining fluency in foreign languages will only benefit me. In the future, I hope to use these skills as the foundation of my work, whether it is in international business, foreign diplomacy, or translation.

      I think of my journey as best expressed through a Chinese proverb that my teacher taught me, “I am like a chicken eating at a mountain of rice.” Each grain is another word for me to learn as I strive to satisfy my unquenchable thirst for knowledge.

      Today, I still have the travel bug, and now, it seems, I am addicted to language too.

      The “Dead Bird” Example College Essay Example

      This was written for a Common App college application essay prompt that no longer exists, which read: Evaluate a significant experience, risk, achievement, ethical dilemma you have faced and its impact on you.

                 Smeared blood, shredded feathers. Clearly, the bird was dead. But wait, the slight fluctuation of its chest, the slow blinking of its shiny black eyes. No, it was alive.

                 I had been typing an English essay when I heard my cat’s loud meows and the flutter of wings. I had turned slightly at the noise and had found the barely breathing bird in front of me.

                 The shock came first. Mind racing, heart beating faster, blood draining from my face. I instinctively reached out my hand to hold it, like a long-lost keepsake from my youth. But then I remembered that birds had life, flesh, blood.

                 Death. Dare I say it out loud? Here, in my own home?

                 Within seconds, my reflexes kicked in. Get over the shock. Gloves, napkins, towels. Band-aid? How does one heal a bird? I rummaged through the house, keeping a wary eye on my cat. Donning yellow rubber gloves, I tentatively picked up the bird. Never mind the cat’s hissing and protesting scratches, you need to save the bird. You need to ease its pain.

                 But my mind was blank. I stroked the bird with a paper towel to clear away the blood, see the wound. The wings were crumpled, the feet mangled. A large gash extended close to its jugular rendering its breathing shallow, unsteady. The rising and falling of its small breast slowed. Was the bird dying? No, please, not yet. 

                 Why was this feeling so familiar, so tangible?

                 Oh. Yes. The long drive, the green hills, the white church, the funeral. The Chinese mass, the resounding amens, the flower arrangements. Me, crying silently, huddled in the corner. The Hsieh family huddled around the casket. Apologies. So many apologies. Finally, the body  lowered to rest. The body. Kari Hsieh. Still familiar, still tangible.

                 Hugging Mrs. Hsieh, I was a ghost, a statue. My brain and my body competed. Emotion wrestled with fact. Kari Hsieh, aged 17, my friend of four years, had died in the Chatsworth Metrolink Crash on Sep. 12, 2008. Kari was dead, I thought. Dead.

                 But I could still save the bird.

                 My frantic actions heightened my senses, mobilized my spirit. Cupping the bird, I ran outside, hoping the cool air outdoors would suture every wound, cause the bird to miraculously fly away. Yet there lay the bird in my hands, still gasping, still dying. Bird, human, human, bird. What was the difference? Both were the same. Mortal.

                 But couldn’t I do something? Hold the bird longer, de-claw the cat? I wanted to go to my bedroom, confine myself to tears, replay my memories, never come out. 

                 The bird’s warmth faded away. Its heartbeat slowed along with its breath. For a long time, I stared thoughtlessly at it, so still in my hands.

                 Slowly, I dug a small hole in the black earth. As it disappeared under handfuls of dirt, my own heart grew stronger, my own breath more steady.

                 The wind, the sky, the dampness of the soil on my hands whispered to me, “The bird is dead. Kari has passed. But you are alive.” My breath, my heartbeat, my sweat sighed back, “I am alive. I am alive. I am alive.”

      The “I Shot My Brother” College Essay Example

      From page 54 of the maroon notebook sitting on my mahogany desk:

      “Then Cain said to the Lord, “My punishment is greater than I can bear. I shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth and whoever finds me will kill me.” – Genesis 4:13

      Here is a secret that no one in my family knows: I shot my brother when I was six. Luckily, it was a BB gun. But to this day, my older brother Jonathan does not know who shot him. And I have finally promised myself to confess this eleven year old secret to him after I write this essay.

      The truth is, I was always jealous of my brother. Our grandparents, with whom we lived as children in Daegu, a rural city in South Korea, showered my brother with endless accolades: he was bright, athletic, and charismatic.

      “Why can’t you be more like Jon?” my grandmother used to nag, pointing at me with a carrot stick. To me, Jon was just cocky. He would scoff at me when he would beat me in basketball, and when he brought home his painting of Bambi with the teacher’s sticker “Awesome!” on top, he would make several copies of it and showcase them on the refrigerator door. But I retreated to my desk where a pile of “Please draw this again and bring it to me tomorrow” papers lay, desperate for immediate treatment. Later, I even refused to attend the same elementary school and wouldn’t even eat meals with him.

      Deep down I knew I had to get the chip off my shoulder. But I didn’t know how.

      That is, until March 11th, 2001.

      That day around six o’clock, juvenile combatants appeared in Kyung Mountain for their weekly battle, with cheeks smeared in mud and empty BB guns in their hands. The Korean War game was simple: to kill your opponent you had to shout “pow!” before he did. Once we situated ourselves, our captain blew the pinkie whistle and the war began. My friend Min-young and I hid behind a willow tree, eagerly awaiting our orders.

      Beside us, our comrades were dying, each falling to the ground crying in “agony,” their hands clasping their “wounds.” Suddenly a wish for heroism surged within me: I grabbed Min-young’s arms and rushed towards the enemies’ headquarters, disobeying our orders to remain sentry duty. To tip the tide of the war, I had to kill their captain. We infiltrated the enemy lines, narrowly dodging each attack. We then cleared the pillars of asparagus ferns until the Captain’s lair came into view. I quickly pulled my clueless friend back into the bush.

      Hearing us, the alarmed captain turned around: It was my brother.

      He saw Min-young’s right arm sticking out from the bush and hurled a “grenade,” (a rock), bruising his arm.

      “That’s not fair!” I roared in the loudest and most unrecognizable voice I could manage.

      Startled, the Captain and his generals abandoned their post. Vengeance replaced my wish for heroism and I took off after the fleeing perpetrator. Streams of sweat ran down my face and I pursued him for several minutes until suddenly I was arrested by a small, yellow sign that read in Korean: DO NOT TRESPASS: Boar Traps Ahead. (Two summers ago, my five year old cousin, who insisted on joining the ranks, had wandered off-course during the battle; we found him at the bottom of a 20 ft deep pit with a deep gash in his forehead and shirt soaked in blood) “Hey, stop!” I shouted, heart pounding. “STOP!” My mind froze. My eyes just gazed at the fleeing object; what should I do?

      I looked on as my shivering hand reached for the canister of BBs. The next second, I heard two shots followed by a cry. I opened my eyes just enough to see two village men carrying my brother away from the warning sign. I turned around, hurled my BB gun into the nearby Kyung Creek and ran home as fast as I could.

      * * *

      Days passed. My brother and I did not talk about the incident.

      ‘Maybe he knew it was me,’ I thought in fear as I tried to eavesdrop on his conversation with grandpa one day. When the door suddenly opened, I blurted, “Is anything wrong?”

      “Nothing,” he said pushing past me, “Just a rough sleep.”

      But in the next few weeks, something was happening inside me.

      All the jealousy and anger I’d once felt had been replaced by a new feeling: guilt.

      That night when my brother was gone I went to a local store and bought a piece of chocolate taffy, his favorite. I returned home and placed it on my brother’s bed with a note attached: “Love, Grandma.”

      Several days later, I secretly went into his room and folded his unkempt pajamas.

      Then, other things began to change. We began sharing clothes (something we had never done), started watching Pokémon episodes together, and then, on his ninth birthday, I did something with Jon that I hadn’t done in six years: I ate dinner with him. I even ate fishcakes, which he loved but I hated. And I didn’t complain.

      Today, my brother is one of my closest friends. Every week I accompany him to Carlson Hospital where he receives treatment for his obsessive compulsive disorder and schizophrenia. While in the waiting room, we play a noisy game of Zenga, comment on the Lakers’ performance or listen to the radio on the registrar’s desk.

      Then, the door to the doctor’s office opens.

      “Jonathan Lee, please come in.”

      I tap his shoulder and whisper, “Rock it, bro.”

      After he leaves, I take out my notebook and begin writing where I left off.

      Beside me, the receptionist’s fingers hover over the radio in search of a new station, eventually settling on one. I hear LeAnn Rimes singing “Amazing Grace.” Her voice slowly rises over the noise of the bustling room.

      “’Twas Grace that taught my heart to fear. And Grace, my fears relieved…”

      Smiling, I open Jon’s Jansport backpack and neatly place this essay inside and a chocolate taffy with a note attached.

      Twenty minutes have passed when the door abruptly opens.

      “Guess what the doctor just said?” my brother cries, unable to hide his exhilaration.

      I look up and I smile too.

      The “Porcelain God” College Essay Example

      Essay written for the “topic of your choice” prompt for the 2012 Common Application college application essays.

      Bowing down to the porcelain god, I emptied the contents of my stomach. Foaming at the mouth, I was ready to pass out. My body couldn’t stop shaking as I gasped for air, and the room started spinning.

      Ten minutes prior, I had been eating dinner with my family at a Chinese restaurant, drinking chicken-feet soup. My mom had specifically asked the waitress if there were peanuts in it, because when I was two we found out that I am deathly allergic to them. When the waitress replied no, I went for it. Suddenly I started scratching my neck, feeling the hives that had started to form. I rushed to the restroom to throw up because my throat was itchy and I felt a weight on my chest. I was experiencing anaphylactic shock, which prevented me from taking anything but shallow breaths. I was fighting the one thing that is meant to protect me and keep me alive – my own body.

      At five years old, I couldn’t comprehend what had happened. All I knew was that I felt sick, and I was waiting for my mom to give me something to make it better. I thought my parents were superheroes; surely they would be able to make well again. But I became scared when I heard the fear in their voices as they rushed me to the ER.

      After that incident, I began to fear. I became scared of death, eating, and even my own body. As I grew older, I became paranoid about checking food labels and I avoided eating if I didn’t know what was in the food. I knew what could happen if I ate one wrong thing, and I wasn’t willing to risk it for a snack. Ultimately, that fear turned into resentment; I resented my body for making me an outsider.

      In the years that followed, this experience and my regular visits to my allergy specialist inspired me to become an allergy specialist. Even though I was probably only ten at the time, I wanted to find a way to help kids like me. I wanted to find a solution so that nobody would have to feel the way I did; nobody deserved to feel that pain, fear, and resentment. As I learned more about the medical world, I became more fascinated with the body’s immune responses, specifically, how a body reacts to allergens. This past summer, I took a month-long course on human immunology at Stanford University. I learned about the different mechanisms and cells that our bodies use in order to fight off pathogens. My desire to major in biology in college has been stimulated by my fascination with the human body, its processes, and the desire to find a way to help people with allergies. I hope that one day I can find a way to stop allergic reactions or at least lessen the symptoms, so that children and adults don’t have to feel the same fear and bitterness that I felt.

      The “Five Families” College Essay Example

      When I was 16, I lived with the Watkins family in Wichita, Kansas. Mrs. Watkins was the coordinator of the foreign exchange student program I was enrolled in. She had a nine year old son named Cody. I would babysit Cody every day after school for at least two to three hours. We would play Scrabble or he would read to me from Charlotte’s Web or The Ugly Duckling. He would talk a lot about his friends and school life, and I would listen to him and ask him the meanings of certain words. He was my first friend in the New World.

      My second family was the Martinez family, who were friends of the Watkins’s. The host dad Michael was a high school English teacher and the host mom Jennifer (who had me call her “Jen”) taught elementary school. She had recently delivered a baby, so she was still in the hospital when I moved into their house. The Martinez family did almost everything together. We made pizza together, watched Shrek on their cozy couch together, and went fishing on Sunday together. On rainy days, Michael, Jen and I would sit on the porch and listen to the rain, talking about our dreams and thoughts. Within two months I was calling them mom and dad.

      After I finished the exchange student program, I had the option of returning to Korea but I decided to stay in America. I wanted to see new places and meet different people. Since I wasn’t an exchange student anymore, I had the freedom–and burden–of finding a new school and host family on my own. After a few days of thorough investigation, I found the Struiksma family in California. They were a unique group.

      The host mom Shellie was a single mom who had two of her own sons and two Russian daughters that she had adopted. The kids always had something warm to eat, and were always on their best behavior at home and in school. It would be fair to say that this was all due to Shellie’s upbringing. My room was on the first floor, right in front of Shellie’s hair salon, a small business that she ran out of her home. In the living room were six or seven huge amplifiers and a gigantic chandelier hung from the high ceiling. The kitchen had a bar. At first, the non-stop visits from strangers made me nervous, but soon I got used to them. I remember one night, a couple barged into my room while I was sleeping. It was awkward.

      After a few months I realized we weren’t the best fit. In the nicest way possible, I told them I had to leave. They understood.

      The Ortiz family was my fourth family. Kimberly, the host mom, treated me the same way she treated her own son. She made me do chores: I fixed dinner, fed their two dogs Sassy and Lady, and once a week I cleaned the bathroom. I also had to follow some rules: No food in my room, no using the family computer, no lights on after midnight, and no ride unless it was an emergency. The first couple of months were really hard to get used to, but eventually I adjusted.

      I lived with the Ortiz family for seven months like a monk in the deep forest. However, the host dad Greg’s asthma got worse after winter, so he wanted to move to the countryside. It was unexpected and I only had a week to find a new host family. I asked my friend Danielle if I could live with her until I found a new home. That’s how I met the Dirksen family, my fifth family.

      The Dirksen family had three kids. They were all different. Danielle liked bitter black coffee, Christian liked energy drinks, and Becca liked sweet lemon tea. Dawn, the host mom didn’t like winter, and Mark, the host dad, didn’t like summer. After dinner, we would all play Wii Sports together. I was the king of bowling, and Dawn was the queen of tennis. I don’t remember a single time that they argued about the games. Afterward, we would gather in the living room and Danielle would play the piano while the rest of us sang hymns.

      Of course, those 28 months were too short to fully understand all five families, but I learned from and was shaped by each of them. By teaching me English, nine year-old Cody taught me the importance of being able to learn from anyone; the Martinez family showed me the value of spending time together as a family; the Struiksma family taught me to reserve judgment about divorced women and adopted children; Mrs. Ortiz taught me the value of discipline and the Dirksen family taught me the importance of appreciating one another’s different qualities.

      Getting along with other people is necessary for anyone and living with five families has made me more sensitive to others’ needs: I have learned how to recognize when someone needs to talk, when I should give advice and when to simply listen, and when someone needs to be left alone; in the process, I have become much more adaptable. I’m ready to change, learn, and be shaped by my future families.

      ANALYSIS OF THE “FIVE FAMILIES” ESSAY

      Remember that movie “The Sixth Sense”?

      I won’t ruin it for you, but I will tell you that there’s a moment toward the end when a crucial piece of information is revealed that triggers in the mind of the audience a series of realizations that have been leading up to this Big Revelation.

      That’s kind of what this writer does: he buries a series of hints (one in each paragraph) that he “explodes” in the final paragraph. In short:

      1. He buries a series of essence images in his first paragraphs (one per family).
      2. He doesn’t tell us what they mean until the end of the essay, when he writes “I learned and was shaped by each of them.” Note that each essence image is actually a lesson–something he learned from each family.
      3. When he reveals each lesson at the end, one after the other, we sense how all these seemingly random events are connected. We realize this writer has been carefully constructing this piece all along; we see the underlying structure. And it’s a pretty neat one.

      Also note:

      • Each of the first five paragraphs works to SHOW. (He waits to TELL us what they mean ‘til that second to last paragraph.)
      • See how distinct each family is? He does this through specific images and objects.
      • The second to last paragraph answers the “So what?” question. (Q: Why did he just show us all these details? A: To demonstrate what each family has taught him.)
      • He also goes one step further. He answers the “So what?” question once more in the final paragraph. (Q: So what am I going to do with all these lessons? A: I’m going to use them to adapt to my next family–in college.)
      • The beauty of this is that he’s demonstrating (showing not telling) that he has an extremely valuable quality that will be useful for doing well at any college: adaptability.

      TIP: And that’s one more way to write your essay . Identify your single greatest strength (in this case, it was his ability to adapt to whatever life gave him). Ask: how did I learn this? How can I SHOW that I’m good at this?

      Here are all the “Show” and “Tell” moments clearly marked:

      When I was 16, I lived with the Watkins family in Wichita, Kansas. Mrs. Watkins was the coordinator of the foreign exchange student program I was enrolled in. She had a nine year old son named Cody. I would babysit Cody every day after school for at least two to three hours.

      Getting along with other people is necessary for anyone and living with five families has made me more sensitive to others’ needs: I have learned how to recognize when someone needs to talk, when I should give advice and when to simply listen, and when someone needs to be left alone; in the process, I have become much more adaptable.

      The “Yearbook” Example UC Essay


      This essay was written for a scholarship at UCLA, but will work for a variety of topics, including several of the UC prompts: 

      “Okay everyone, we have 9 more hours before deadline, let’s make this happen!”

      The room erupts. The Student Life editor is in agony because his Siblings page needs two reshoots, and he has one shot at getting good pictures.

      “Make it work!” someone from Arts shouts, as she helps pull out umbrella strobes and reflectors for the Play Production shoot. Further down the line of computers, a Tech Arts guy is working with a girl from Academics on proofing the cover graphics, while a mixed group heads out to interview students for the people pages.

      This is what it takes to win Best High School Yearbook at both the state and national levels.

      I remember in ninth grade thinking how cool it’d be to be on yearbook. Yearbook kids knew which classes everyone was in, they knew which kids were into what extracurricular, and perhaps most importantly, they knew everyone at school. From freshmen to seniors to faculty, yearbook gave them a connection to everyone. Yearbook kids radiated serene confidence in themselves and their work. At my school, that’s how it is: yearbook is a mini-company of 20.

      I plan to double major in biochemistry and English and my main essay explains my passion for the former; here is a writing sample that illustrates my enthusiasm for the latter.

      In my AP Literature class, my teacher posed a question to which students had to write a creative response. My response is framed around the ideas of Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave.”

      Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?

      A: A manicured green field of grass blades cut to perfectly matched lengths; a blue expanse ornamented with puffy cotton clouds; an immaculately painted red barn centered exactly at the top of a hill–the chicken gazes contentedly at his picturesque world. Within an area surrounded by a shiny silver fence, he looks around at his friends: roosters pecking at a feast of grains and hens lounging on luxurious cushions of hay. As the nice man in a plaid shirt and blue jeans collects the hens’ eggs, the chicken feels an overwhelming sense of indebtedness to him for providing this idyllic lifestyle.

      On a day as pristine as all the others, the chicken is happily eating his lunchtime meal as the nice man carefully gathers the smooth white eggs when it notices that the man has left one behind. Strangely located at the empty end of the metal enclosure, highlighted by the bright yellow sun, the white egg appears to the chicken different from the rest. The chicken moves towards the light to tacitly inform the man of his mistake. But then the chicken notices a jagged gray line on the otherwise flawless egg. Hypnotized and appalled, the chicken watches as the line turns into a crack and a small beak attached to a fuzzy yellow head pokes out. Suddenly a shadow descends over the chicken and the nice man snatches the egg–the baby chick–and stomps off.

      The chicken–confused, betrayed, disturbed–slowly lifts its eyes from the now empty ground. For the first time, it looks past the silver fence of the cage and notices an unkempt sweep of colossal brown and green grasses opposite its impeccably crafted surroundings. Cautiously, it inches closer to the barrier, farther from the unbelievable perfection of the farm, and discovers a wide sea of black gravel.  Stained with gray stones and marked with yellow lines, it separates the chicken from the opposite field.

      The curious chicken quickly shuffles to Mother Hen, who has just settled on to her throne of hay and is closing her eyes. He is sure that the always composed and compassionate chicken will help him make sense of what he’s just seen.

      “Mother Hen, Mother Hen! I-I just saw one of those eggs, cracking, and there was a small yellow bird inside. It was a baby. Are those eggs that the nice man takes away babies? And that black ground! What is it?” the chicken blurts out.

      Her eyes flick open. “BOK BOK! Don’t you ever dare speak of what you have seen again,” Mother Hen snaps in a low and violent whisper, “or all of this will be taken away.” Closing her eyes again, she dismisses the chicken.

      Frozen in disbelief, the chicken tries to make sense of her harsh words. It replays the incident in its head. “All the food, the nice soft hay, the flawless red barn–maybe all of this isn’t worth giving up. Maybe Mother Hen is right. She just wants to protect me from losing it all.” The chicken replays the incident again. “But it was a baby. What if it was hers? She still wouldn’t care. She’s being selfish; all she cares about is this perfect life.” A final replay, and the chicken realizes and accepts that Mother Hen knows, has known, that the man is doing something wrong; yet she has yielded to the cruelty for her own comfort. A fissure in the chicken’s unawareness, a plan begins to hatch. The chicken knows it must escape; it has to get to the other side.

      “That man in the plaid shirt is stealing the eggs from their mothers again,” the chicken thinks the next day as he unlocks the cage. Then the man reaches into the wooden coop, his back to the entrance. “Now!” At its own cue, the chicken scurries towards the opening and exits unseen. With a backwards glance at his friends, the chicken feels a profound sadness and pity for their ignorance. It wants to urge them to open their eyes, to see what they are sacrificing for materialistic pleasures, but he knows they will not surrender the false reality. Alone, the chicken dashes away.

      The chicken stands at the line between green grass and black gravel. As it prepares to take its first step into the unknown, a monstrous vehicle with 18 wheels made of metal whizzes by, leaving behind a trail of gray exhaust. Once it regains its breath, it moves a few inches onto the asphalt. Three more speeding trucks stop its chicken heart.

      “I can’t do this,” it says to itself. “These monsters are a sign. They’re telling me to go back. Besides, a few lost chicks aren’t so bad. The man’s not that evil. He gives us food, and a home.”

      But the chicken dismisses the cowardly voice in its head, reminding itself of the injustice back in the deceptively charming prison. Over the next several hours, it learns to strategically position itself so that it is in line with the empty space between the tires of passing trucks. It reaches the yellow dashes. A black blanket gradually pushes away the glowing sun and replaces it with diamond stars and a glowing crescent. It reaches the untouched field.

      With a deep breath, the chicken steps into the swathe, a world of tall beige grass made brown by the darkness. Unsure of what it may discover, it determines to simply walk straight through the brush, out on to the other side. For what seems like forever, it continues forward, as the black sky turns to purple, then blue, then pink. Just as the chicken begins to regret its journey, the grass gives way to a vast landscape of trees, bushes, flowers–heterogeneous and variable, but nonetheless perfect. In a nearby tree, the chicken spots two adult birds tending to a nest of babies–a natural dynamic of individuals unaltered by corrupt influence.

      And then it dawns on him. It has escaped from a contrived and perverted domain as well as its own unawareness; it has arrived in a place where the pure order of the world reigns.

      “I know the truth now,” it thinks to himself as the sun rises. “But here, in Nature, it is of no use. Back home, I need to try to foster awareness among my friends, share this understanding with them. Otherwise, I am as cruel as the man in the plaid shirt, taking away the opportunity to overcome ignorance.

      “I must return now; I have to get to the other side.

      The “Rock, Paper, Scissors” UChicago Supplemental Essay Example

      Essay written for the University of Chicago prompt. which asks you to create your own prompt/

      Prompt:

      Dear Christian, the admissions staff at the University of Chicago would like to inform you that your application has been “put on the line.” We have one spot left and can’t decide if we should admit you or another equally qualified applicant. To resolve the matter, please choose one of the following:

      Rock, paper, or scissors.

      You will be notified of our decision shortly.

      Response:

      Rock beats scissors, scissors beats paper, and paper beats rock.  Wait… paper beats rock? Since when has a sheet of loose leaf paper ever defeated a solid block of granite? Do we assume that the paper wraps around the rock, smothering the rock into submission? When exposed to paper, is rock somehow immobilized, unable to fulfill its primary function of smashing scissors?  What constitutes defeat between two inanimate objects?

      Maybe it’s all a metaphor for larger ideals. Perhaps paper is rooted in the symbolism of diplomacy while rock suggests coercion. But does compromise necessarily trump brute force? And where do scissors lie in this chain of symbolism?

      I guess the reasoning behind this game has a lot to do with context. If we are to rationalize the logic behind this game, we have to assume some kind of narrative, an instance in which paper might beat rock. Unfortunately, I can’t argue for a convincing one.

      As with rock-paper-scissors, we often cut our narratives short to make the games we play easier, ignoring the intricate assumptions that keep the game running smoothly. Like rock-paper-scissors, we tend to accept something not because it’s true, but because it’s the convenient route to getting things accomplished. We accept incomplete narratives when they serve us well, overlooking their logical gaps. Other times, we exaggerate even the smallest defects and uncertainties in narratives we don’t want to deal with. In a world where we know very little about the nature of “Truth,” it’s very easy—and tempting—to construct stories around truth claims that unfairly legitimize or delegitimize the games we play.

      Or maybe I’m just making a big deal out of nothing…

      Fine. I’ll stop with the semantics and play your game.

      But who actually wants to play a game of rock-paper-scissors?  After all, isn’t it just a game of random luck, requiring zero skill and talent? That’s no way to admit someone!

      Wrong.

      Studies have shown that there are winning strategies to rock-paper-scissors by making critical assumptions about those we play against before the round has even started. Douglas Walker, host of the Rock-Paper-Scissors World Championships (didn’t know that existed either), conducted research indicating that males will use rock as their opening move 50% of the time, a gesture Walker believes is due to rock’s symbolic association with strength and force. In this sense, the seemingly innocuous game of rock-paper-scissors has revealed something quite discomforting about gender-related dispositions in our society. Why did so many males think that brute strength was the best option? If social standards have subliminally influenced the way males and females play rock-paper-scissors, than what is to prevent such biases from skewing more important decisions? Should your decision to go to war or to feed the hungry depend on your gender, race, creed, etc?

      Perhaps the narratives I spoke of earlier, the stories I mistakenly labeled as “semantics,” carry real weight in our everyday decisions. In the case of Walker’s study, men unconsciously created an irrational narrative around an abstract rock. We all tell slightly different narratives when we independently consider notions ranging from rocks to war to existence. It is ultimately the unconscious gaps in these narratives that are responsible for many of the man-made problems this world faces. In order for the “life of the mind” to be a worthwhile endeavor, we must challenge the unconscious narratives we attach to the larger games we play—the truths we tell (or don’t tell), the lessons we learn (or haven’t really learned), the people we meet (or haven’t truly met).

      But even after all of this, we still don’t completely understand the narrative behind rock-paper-scissors.  

      I guess it all comes down to who actually made this silly game in the first place… I’d like to think it was some snotty 3rd grader, but then again, that’s just another incomplete narrative.


      U of Michigan Supplemental Essay Example


      The “East Meets West” Example Essay

      This was written for the U. of Michigan supplemental “community” essay prompt, then adapted for a (no longer existent) essay for Brown. The Michigan prompt reads:

      Everyone belongs to many different communities and/or groups defined by (among other things) shared geography, religion, ethnicity, income, cuisine, interest, race, ideology, or intellectual heritage. Choose one of the communities to which you belong, and describe that community and your place within it.

      Here’s the essay:

      I look around my room, dimly lit by an orange light. On a desk in the left corner, a framed picture of an Asian family is beaming their smiles, buried among US history textbooks and The Great Gatsby. A Korean ballad streams from a pair of tiny computer speakers. Pamphlets of American colleges are scattered about on the floor. A cold December wind wafts a strange infusion of ramen and leftover pizza. On the wall in the far back, a Korean flag hangs besides a Led Zeppelin poster.

      Do I consider myself Korean or American?

      A few years back, I would have replied: “Neither.” The frustrating moments of miscommunication, the stifling homesickness, and the impossible dilemma of deciding between the Korean or American table in the dining hall, all fueled my identity crisis.

      Standing in the “Foreign Passports” section at JFK, I have always felt out of place. Sure, I held a Korean passport in my hands, and I loved kimchi and Yuna Kim and knew the Korean Anthem by heart. But I also loved macaroni and cheese and LeBron and knew all the Red Hot Chili Peppers songs by heart. Deep inside, I feared that I would simply be labeled as what I am categorized at airport customs: a foreigner in all places.

      This ambiguity of existence, however, has granted me the opportunity to absorb the best of both worlds. Take a look at my dorm room. This mélange of cultures in my East-meets-West room embodies the diversity that characterizes my international student life.

      I have learned to accept my “ambiguity” as “diversity,” as a third-culture student embracing both identities in this diverse community that I am blessed to be a part of.

      Do I consider myself Korean or American?

      Now, I can proudly answer: “Both.”

      Classical music seems definitely more comprehensive and soul searching.

      Classical music seems to be much less accessible than rock since it has become very elitist. Elitism always strips the emotion necessary to inspire any passion. Because rock is not valued as high art there remains room for real emotion. People always like what is natural and real. Classical music has been and still is a major part of American and European cultures. This type of music was my aunt’s and still is her favorite type of music.

      She listened to classical music all of her life ever since she was first introduced to it by her parents back in the mid 1900’s.

      Her parents tried to encourage her to only listen to classical music because they said that it brought peace to the mind and helped people concentrate on their work better.

      Classical music is just so hard to relate to since there are very few or no words and it has been in existence for a very long period of time without much change. This, is one reason younger people, like me, do not quite know what to make of classical music, but on the other hand, the seriousness of classical music could also be an attraction. To me it is as if classical music and rock inhabit different worlds, where people think in entirely different ways. Listening to classical music was seen as a sign of someone who was very well educated and well mannered. Classical music was just so wonderful to her because it brought together so many different kinds of instruments in a beautiful harmony. Classical music almost never talks about such things. Classical music just seems so repetitive and gets tiring to me very fast. She very much appreciated the musical works of composers such as Beethoven, Mozart, Schubert, Haydn, and many others. Some of these benefits include optimizing brain development, building social and emotional skills, and stimulating creativity and enhancing joy. According to my aunt, classical music has many benefits. Classical music because she was so engrossed in it that she wanted to learn everything about it and more. This music is just so inspirational. The most obvious example is when rock first appeared in 1954, it was an eruption of black music into the white pop mainstream. When I listen to music, I like to hear words in the song. However, in a classical song, one cannot really try to improvise because it might disrupt some of the harmonies of other instruments, and just overall mess up the whole song.

      Classical music certainly is more complex. However…I always wonder why the rock musicians are millionares. Most of them don’t even know how to read music. They don’t spend years taking lessons and seem to master their instruments.
      A guitarist in my favorite rock band, only took a couple of guitar lessons…yet now he is considered one of the best guitarists in rock and is a millionaire.

      I guess the real art in rock, is the creativity of coming up with something that the public likes. I would say that rock music is the dominant music in the western world today. I wonder why that is. Is it because of the strong beat in rock? Or because it is easier for people to listen to? Or maybe because the rock compositions (overall) are shorter?

      Is the electric guitar easier to master than symphony instruments?

      Perhaps the real clue is, there are so many different kinds of ‘classical’ music, that exploring the genre will eventually involve an attempt to ‘understand’ some sort of music. And this is what, to me, rock music doesn’t need: all you have to do is listen to the music, and listen to the words; if it moves you, you like it.

      Rock music tends to lack the mental effort of comprehension.

      This does not mean that people who listen to rock music are stupid :). They are people who simply want to enjoy their music. I see them as wanting to relax to it, not wanting to be ‘discerning’ and analytical. This is why I like to listen to some rock.

      As the why rock musicians make more money:
      They play in huge stadiums, where classical music is very hard to perform. Rock music is generally fairly catchy, has singable lyrics, that really hit home to some people, or just something about the ease in listening to it that makes everyone like it.

      Joseph Horowitz’s The Post-Classical Predicament explores the dilemma of classical music in America’s changing society.
      Around the turn of the century, argues the author, classical music was integral to general intellectual discourse and to the contemporary moment. This integration of music and society began to break down during the interwar decades. A new, enlarged audience was tutored to disdain contemporary and American culture in favor of pedigreed Old World masters. In a period when jazz became America’s most individual, most influential musical export, the music appreciation movement shunned popular music as a menace. To the schism between musical and intellectual life, between audience and composer, was added a schism between highbrow and low.
      After World War II classical music became increasingly marginalized – a form of popular culture masquerading as high culture. Ultimately, great music and great performers became captives of their own celebrity.
      In this sterling collection of essays, Joseph Horowitz ranges from the turn-of-the-century achievements of Dvorak, Seidl, and Ives to the distorted careers of Vladimir Horowitz and Leonard Bernstein a century later. His other topics include Glenn Gould, Amadeus, and Forest Lawn Cemetery – where classical music rests in peace as mortuary kitsch.
      The collection concludes with the author’s reflections on his own experience as Executive Director of the Brooklyn Philharmonic Orchestra – whose recent weekend festivals aim for a revitalized “post-classical” music exploding the traditional formats and boundaries.

        Christmas Is A Good Holiday For Many Reasons

             Christmas is a good holiday for many reasons. There are reasons that
        exist that make Christmas a bad holiday, but for the most part it is a wonderful
        time of year. Millions of people around the world will agree that Christmas is
        one of the most fun and exciting holidays. Christmas is a good holiday because
        students get a vacation from school, people get to exchange gifts with friends
        and family, and people get to spend time with their families. Those three
        reasons, among others, help to make Christmas one of the best holidays.

             First of all, Christmas is a good holiday because students get a
        vacation from school. While not in school, students have no homework. That
        really helps to make the holidays more enjoyable. With no school, students have
        no reason to get up early so they can stay out late and sleep late in the
        morning. When Christmas comes around, it means that the school year is half over.
        If a student has done well the first semester, he or she is sure to survive the
        second semester.

             Next, people get to exchange gifts with friends and family. Exchanging
        gifts is always fun because people receive new things. Who couldn’t enjoy
        something that was given to them free. Also, people get to give gifts to their
        friends and family. Giving gifts always gives people that warm happy feeling
        inside. The most enjoyable part is seeing the gifts that people gave being
        opened by the people receiving them. That always puts a smile on peoples faces.

             Last but not least, people get to spend time with family. Some of the
        family may not have been seen in a long time so it puts everyone in a good mood
        to finally see them. Being with family is fun and helps make the holidays more
        enjoyable. One thing that many families may find interesting is sharing stories.

        Analysis of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol Essay

        – Analysis of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol It is hard to believe that there is anyone on the planet that hasn’t heard of the story “A Christmas Carol”. Although it isn’t hard to believe that people do not realize that there are differences between movies and novels. In this case, that fits right into that subject. Here are some of the differences between the movie and the novel. One minor difference in the movie was that the Ghost of Christmas yet to come has a hand of skin. Not a hand without skin that was wrote in the book….   [tags: Dickens Christmas Carol Analysis]

Rather than it being a time of loving and giving, it has become a stressful season of greed. Amidst all the hustle and bustle, it is important for us to recognize the true reason of the season, and celebrate in a fashion that exemplifies that reason. Many people in American society assume that the main purpose of Christmas is the supposed coming of Santa Claus….   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics]

But what is this ‘Spirit of Christmas’. In fact what is Christmas.

Mock goes through what happens every year during Christmas time now and how “good feelings are directly connected to consumerism” (Mock p3), how we lie to support the conspiracy (Mock p5) and the different options a child may go through when trying to decide whether Santa Claus is real or not (Mock p7-15).

        Christmas as a Federal Holiday Essay

        – The most collectively celebrated holiday of the year is undeniably December 25th, Christmas. Most people acknowledge that the “Christ” in Christmas is representative of Jesus Christ, Son of God, and for Christians, the day is set aside as a celebration of his birth. Many people in the United States (and world) however, either do not believe in the Christian view of Christmas, have different non-Christian religious beliefs or celebrate for other reasons, if at all. Because of the multi-cultural differences that incorporate our country, Christmas should be declared by Congress as simply a Federal Holiday….   [tags: Religion Holidays]

        The True Reason to Celebrate Christmas Essay

        – … The word “holiday” actually came from “holy day,” which declared certain days like saints’ feasts and Christmas to be dedicated to God. Now, Christmas decorations are brought out in stores immediately after Halloween; ads promoting holiday and blow-out sales are found in newspapers and on TV, and shopping for presents begins at least one month before Christmas does. Internet sources such as Wikipedia say that giving and receiving gifts is the core of Christmas. Adrian Rogers, a Christian broadcaster, said that Americans are “…too involved with other things,” and we have “…no room for Jesus.”(Rogers, Adrian) Not only has the meaning of Christmas been lost due to all the focus on want…   [tags: purpose, holiday, secular, money, gifts, christ]

People just keep their TV’s on.” Walter Ward is a spokesperson for the television station TNT. In 1998, TNT called it a “Ralphie marathon.” According to Ward, it was only a “stunt” but, when TNT saw how much the viewers liked it, it became a sort of tradition.

        1. Near the end of Chapter 2, Pony is remembering the time Johnny got beat up by the Socs: “Dally was there, too, swearing under his breath, and turning away with a sick expression on his face. I wondered about it vaguely. Dally had seen people killed on the streets of New York’s West Side. Why did he look sick now?” How would you answer this question?

        S. E. Hinton

        Suggested Essay Topics

        1. What draws Cherry to the greasers?
        Why is she with Bob? Why does she say she could fall in love with
        Dally?

        2. Discuss the role of the novel’s
        physical setting. How does the division between the East Side and
        the West Side represent the conflict within the novel itself?

        3. Compare and contrast the Curtis
        brothers, Darry, Sodapop, and Ponyboy. How does their relationship
        change over the course of the novel?

        4. Think about the role of physical
        violence in the novel. Is the violence shocking, predictable, boring,
        or melodramatic? Do you think such violence has a different effect
        on readers today than it did when the novel was first published?

          Reasons for Becoming a Teacher


          May 02, 2012


          by Michelle Manno

           

          Reasons for becoming a teacher

          Every teacher devotes his or her life to education for reasons as individual to them as any other part of their identity. Still, it usually isn’t the money, and it isn’t the three-month summer vacation . Reasons for becoming a teacher are deeper than that, and while they are personal, they are almost all united by the desire to impact peoples’ lives. There is a demand for great teachers in this country, and a person is called to become a teacher in response to that need. So, what’s calling you? Why do you want to teach?

          To Improve the Quality of Education

          The demand for great teachers is a tangible pressing need. While our country has come a long way in education reform, we still have a long way to go. There are schools across America that are still in high need because of budgetary concerns and low teacher retention, and students still continue to drop out at alarming rates. One reason to become a teacher is to impact the education system. If you recognize the need to improve the quality of education in this country, then you may become a teacher to affect change. There is a lot of work to be done, but it is the collective effort of thousands of dedicated teachers that will make the most difference.

          School administrators and government officials have an impact at the legislative level, but it is teachers who have a direct effect on students in the classroom — that is, after all, where learning takes place. You won’t be able to improve the quality of education for every student in America, but you will be able to for your students. Helping just one student is worth it, but over a long and productive career, you have the chance to help thousands of students.

          Essentially, becoming a teacher lets you take part in shaping the next generation.

          To Give Back to Your Community

          One of the reasons for becoming a teacher is to contribute to your community in a meaningful way. Teaching is one of the most direct ways to make an impact, and if you are driven by the desire to help those around you, being a teacher is an invaluable contribution.

          Perhaps you grew up in a high-needs area and are personally connected to the struggle of students who come from low-income families and go to schools with little funding; this sort of perspective allows you to recognize how much of a difference a devoted teacher can make. Maybe an amazing teacher changed your life when you were younger, and you want to share that with a new generation of students. Many people cite a favorite teacher as a source of inspiration in their decision to pursue a career in education.

          To Change the Lives of Students

          Teachers do more than teach, and their impact extends far beyond the classroom. As a teacher, you are more than just an educator: you are a mentor, a confidant and a friend. One of the most common reasons to become a teacher is to make a difference in the lives of as many students as you can. Taylor Mali , a renowned poet, education advocate and former teacher, describes this impact in his spoken word poem, “ What Teachers Make .” He says, “I make kids work harder than they ever thought they could, I make a C+ feel like a congressional medal of honor, I make an A- feel like a slap in the face … I make parents see their children for who they are and what they can be … I make a difference.”

          Teachers have the potential to interact with students at all stages of development and from all walks of life. A great teacher wants to help students along this path and to play a part in shaping the person they will ultimately become. If you want to help a child struggling with low self-esteem and problems at home, then become a teacher to encourage them and help them realize their potential. Becoming a teacher lets you impart life lessons that they will never forget and puts you in a position to influence their decisions, behaviors, strengths, weaknesses and imaginations. Essentially, becoming a teacher lets you take part in shaping the next generation.

          Why I Chose to Become a Teacher…


          By Mack S. Tribble


           My choice to become a teacher was not made lightly.  This
          decision was a culmination of a process of reflection about what I wanted to do with my life. 
          I have chosen a career in education because I believe that it is one of the most important functions performed in our
          culture.  I believe that teachers individually and collectively have the ability
          to not only change the world, but to improve it.  Within the process of teaching,
          I hope to find both personal and professional renewal.  I want to be a part of
          a noble profession with the hope of one day being counted among those in whom future teachers find inspiration.


                      Many of
          the great teachers that I have had throughout my education have become my heroes and role models.  I began to understand in high school and college that great teachers have skills that I wanted to learn.  I want to follow their examples.  I remember
          that great teachers were good at explaining content, were patient yet firm with students, were always fair, set high expectations,
          knew how to motivate, and used humor appropriately.  They were great communicators
          who had a command of their subject matter content.  This is the type of teacher
          that I intend to become.  However, I understand that my personal teaching style
          will evolve as I draw on my own strengths, knowledge, skills, values, and experiences. 


          I want children to learn in a safe and comfortable environment so that their self-esteem
          will be increased. A high self-esteem will enable them to strive for and accomplish any goals they set for themselves. As
          a teacher, I will play a part in helping them to do that. I will have the privilege of shaping future parents and productive
          members of society. For all of these reasons, I ask myself, what better job could there be. My answer is none because teaching
          is more than a job. It is an important contribution I can make to better our society, and I am excited about the opportunity
          to do so.


          During my undergraduate program at DePaul I chose classes that would help me
          in my career as a teacher.  These classes ranged from discipline (Methods of Discipline
          for Children), to third-world culture (India), psychology for adults, children, and adolescents, along with topics that are
          important to both educators and parents (Raising Boys to be Men of Character).  During
          that time I also spent a considerable amount of time observing classrooms, along with teaching 4th grade Sunday
          school at my church.  With the love I have for children, along with my education,
          and the experience I have had in the classroom, I know that teaching is a career that I will be successful in. 


          Why do I want to become a teacher?  A teacher
          has the direct opportunity to make a difference, to change the future.  I have
          been told that I am an idealist.  I want the best for everyone.  I will set high goals as a teacher and do my best to show each and every student that these goals are within
          their reach.  I will expect every one of my students to want to learn and more
          importantly to understand.  I want my students to fight over the seats in the
          front row as if they were attending a concert, not elementary school.  I want
          to make my students wonder; make them question; make them think critically; make them write; make them read, read, read.


          An excellent teacher is not just someone who explains. 
          Not someone who just demonstrates.  An excellent teacher is someone who
          inspires.  An excellent teacher goes the extra mile.  They can take any individual and make them believe, truly believe, that their hopes and dreams are within
          their reach.  An excellent teacher will not let a student walk away until every
          question is fully explained and completely understood, no matter how long it may take. 
          If the day ends and the student still has not understood the lesson plan, an extraordinary teacher would brainstorm.  He or she would think, “How can I explain this concept to the student so that
          he or she can better understand it?”  I intend on being that type of teacher.


          The chance to inspire another human being is not an opportunity it’s a challenge.  There are too many educators that haven’t accepted this challenge, and it needs
          to change.  Students go to school because they are forced to.  Many times learning is not their top priority, but the teacher’s job is to teach.  Students are always learning.  Unfortunately, it just may not
          be what the teacher is teaching. Since this is the case, a teacher must not only know his or her content area, they must also
          be prepared to teach other “things”.  Things, such as character, morals,
          etc., which may prove to be more valuable than knowledge itself.  This is the
          reason I want to become a teacher…. I want to inspire the children who will represent the future of our great nation.
