A Joke that is not mine – Seriously not mine

There was one Filipino who came to America and looked at the classified ads for painting jobs. He came across the “Help Wanted” section that read – “Wanted: Painter of Porch”, and thought that was perfect for his capabilities.And so he went to the American who posted the ad. American: I need my porch painted in a day. You need to scrape all the paint up to the bare surface, and apply a coat of primer then two final coats of orange paint. Can you do that?
Filipino: Oh yes, sir.. yes, sir! I can remoob(remove) the paint then apply orange paint beri well!
American: Ok! You got the job. Just get everything you need from the trunk of the car.After 3 hours…Pinoy: Sir, work is pinis oreydi!
American: Wow! I’m amazed you did it in 3 hours. Did you scrape all the old paint to the bare surface?
Filipino: Oh yes, sir! Yes, sir! I tanggalated(remove) all the old paint!
American: Well then, here’s your $20 bonus!
Filipino: Golly, sir! Tenk yu beri much. But sir, you don’t heb a porch.. your car is a BMW…!

Preparing the Biology Final Project! This is in High School lol

First things first I guess. everything came from something right? I posted it to show my preparation on this venture of Presenting my final Project on biology on SCCHS!

 

Medical Requirements

Health Card – Health

SIN – some of our clients are working in their respective countries, so we need to keep this in record in case something happens.

Mosquito Repellent – for safety purposes only. Its not rainy season, so there is no need to worry about getting malaria and dengue.

I’m not worry about epidemics because as of 2010, there is no epidemic that is prevalent in the Philippines.

The Philippines accepts Medicare from any country that has one.

As a local individual, i do not have free health care so i have to apply to philhealth and sss.

How Teens learn best? is mine credible or not?

How Teens Learn Best

Schoolwork is important for teenagers. Understanding the subjects that is taught in middle school and high school set the stage for the rest of a teenager’s life. The ability to learn and process new information is a huge key towards teenage success. By the time kids reach their teenage years, their learning styles have already been realized. Children begin developing their learning styles when they first enter the world and complete this part of development usually by the age of twelve. It is important to understand that people have different learning styles, parental influences, peers, and mentors that affect their learning.

First, Different learning styles and curves. Ever wonder why teens seem to put off the easier material until last minute? Or why there must be complete silence for him or her to study effectively? Both of these are largely due to the teen’s learning style. The way that a teen learns has a big impact on his or her study habits. You might notice that teens learn better under pressure so he or she puts off studying until the day before the test. Teens whose learning styles are at their best when there are no distractions will need complete silence when they are trying to study. When teens are not in the situation that best fits their learning style, they will have trouble with their study habits as well. There are four different learning styles that affect a teenager’s study habits, these are visual, auditory, actual learning, and analytic. Visual learners. There are those teens that are visual learners. These teens work best with visual representation of the information. This includes pictures, symbols, charts, diagrams, and colors. Auditory learners. These teens learn best if they hear the information. When auditory-learning teens study, you might find them reading aloud because it helps them to better learn the material when they hear themselves read it aloud. Actual learners . When it comes to practical subjects like Math and English, these teens would rather do some trial and error rather than actually read and learn the rules first. Although, it might sound contrary to what most parents think their kinds should do, it is not good to try to change your child’s learning style. Instead, find ways that you can help develop his study habits through this trial and error kind of learning style. Analytic learners .These kinds of learners deal well with details. You might notice your teen reading and rereading the information, while taking some time to reflect on what was just read in the meantime. An analytic learner deals well with lists, patterns, homework, and practice exercises. Since this kind of teen deals well with goals, set some steps and study goals for your teen to aid in his study habits.

Second, Parental influences. Parents are a huge influence in regards to teenage learning but, Teenagers don’t learn much from parental warnings and lecturing. Most parents have tried that without much success. And unfortunately, one or both parents all too often cave in when their children get in trouble. Each time parents do so, a valuable lesson isn’t learned and a mistake is apt to be repeated. Also, Teens that were implied with tremendous amounts of discipline by theirs show more promise than most teens.

Third, Peer pressure. Peer pressure is one thing that all teens have in common. You can’t escape it. It is everywhere. Whether it is pressure to conform to a group norm or pressure to act, peer pressure is something everybody has to deal with at some time in his or her life.

Children, especially during adolescence, begin to spend a lot more time with their friends, and less time with their family. This makes them more susceptible to the influences of their peers. It is important to remember that teenage friends can have a positive influence; we should therefore find friends that have similar interests and views as those you are trying to develop in your children, including doing well in school, having respect for others and avoiding drug use, smoking and drinking, etc.

Peer pressure isn’t always negative. Peers may pressure others into negative behaviors or away from positive behaviors, but can push in positive directions as well. Not all teens react to peer pressure in the same way. Gender and age are factors. For example, boys are more susceptible than girls to peer pressure, particularly in risk situations. Younger teens are more easily influenced than older teens, with peer pressure peaking in about eighth or ninth grade. Individual characteristics such as confidence level, personality and degree of maturity make a difference. Peer pressure varies according to the situation: being with one close friend, in the small clique of friends, or seeing what the larger peer group is doing in school.

Finally, Teacher’s influence. Teachers play a significant role in teenage learning. Since teachers can affect how students perceive the course materials, it has been found that teachers who showed enthusiasm towards the course materials and students can affect a positive learning experience towards the course materials. On teacher/course evaluations, it was found that teachers who have a positive disposition towards the course content tend to transfer their passion to receptive students. Students are likely to build stronger relations with teachers who are friendly and supportive and will show more interest in courses taught by these teachers. Teachers that spend more time interacting and working directly with students are perceived as supportive and effective teachers. Effective teachers have been shown to invite student participation and decision making, allow humor into their classroom, and demonstrate a willingness to play.

English B30 Final Speech Outline

I know a lot of you made speeches before but I wanted to share this because I hate it when people have difficulty on certain thing such as speeches, essays, and making outlines. I gone through a lot in my life and I hope that no one experiences that troubles and frustrations I faced when making one of these. THIS IS NOT a CREDIBLE source of info but this outline can give you an idea of the expectation.

Outline

Intro

Racism describes a system of group domination that is both ideological and structural and is prejudice based on membership to a marginal racial group.

Causes

Based on Historical Studies-Racism-Prevalent- Human-History

Some believe that specific groups are more superior .

Human beings have tried to justify different treatment of people based on race, traits , capabilities.

In order to find out the cause of racism, one must look into the capitalist society,

Shadowing Someone Episode 3: “The Students of Vanier”

Image Detail

My third week in Jean Vanier is to focus on reflecting on the students of school. The student’s ages ranges from 4-20. They are divided in via age groups and difficulty of care. I.E. 4-6 years old would be classified as the youngest. Like I said in the previous logs, the students in Jean Vanier are not considered “normal” by our society. These students have learning disabilities, deformities, mental diseases, and autism which make them unable to meet regular school division expectations. Instead, despite their learning disabilities, they are still taught with lessons with minimal difficulty as much as possible such as simple storytelling, arts and crafts, and simple cooking.  The student interact with the use of pictures depicting what they need like food, toothpaste, and drinks. Most of the students lack the ability to speak and utter words. Some of the students lack patience when trying to communicate like one student that was assigned to me name “Caitlyn”. She can’t walk properly, doesn’t speak, and screams when her patience runs out. I had to act accordingly based on what I have been debrief by the supervisor; to handle everything with care, and to adjust to every situation given. Students in Vanier are given tasks and assigned to one teacher. Their main task is to behave and take consideration of their other classmates because some of them lack the skills to communicate properly and they all end up shouting and sometimes fighting in class. For me, the learners in Jean Vanier as the teachers themselves. Every day, they learn to adjust to their student’s behaviour due to the unstable minds that they have regarding their respective conditions. Also, it is also to take note that the teachers rotate their assigned students and learn to handle their situations. Students of Vanier play an essential part of the school. Why? They are sent to school by their parents to actually “teach” the teachers of their condition and give them a different perspective of life that can use to improve themselves as educators.

Shadowing Someone Episode 1: “Make all of your worries seem Pathetic”

My First week of field experience in Jean Vanier was something that I was not expecting.  Jean Vanier is a school for students with special needs-meaning these having serious disabilities such as Down syndrome, inability to walk, psychotic abilities and autism. The school does not follow a regular high school, pre-school, elementary, and middle years. Instead, they accept students from ages 3 to 21, where a student is assigned in a specific room corresponding to their age and difficulty of care. Furthermore, the teacher lounge has pictures of every student with a list of possible seizures and protocols in case of seizures. I came in to Vanier (on time of course) and looked for the Arkin Kauf, my supervisor. He debrief me about Vanier and I found that he didn’t wanted a job like this in Vanier but, aspires to be a elementary school teacher. I guess we really have no control of our lives. Then, I was introduced on the rest of the staff and the principal as well. They told me that this endeavour would be different compared to interning to other school divisions. Vanier is a Catholic school with a strong roster of Catholic teachers, and incorporates with faith based activities like praying, singing, and more. The then introduced me to the students. I have never seen something like it before. Most them can’t speak and walk. Furthermore there level of cognitively is very low which limiting their functions to just showing up in class. I started to think and I was like – seeing these kids “make all your worries seem pathetic”. because these kids will roam this planet for the rest of their lives as unable and illiterate. I think this was strong sign for me to broaden my horizon and explore the “other side of the coin” or special education. The first week was purely introduction to everything so there was not a lot activity to do because the supervisor is doing preparation that day for his classes, and I was limited to basic helping such as feeding the kids who are unable to use their hands and cleaning the children’s messes. The physical and human context in which the school operates is Faith. Vanier is a Catholic and draws most of its sources from faith-based materials like the Bible, liturgies’ of the church, and the sacraments of the Catholic Church. 

Learning Project Linker #6: Bashing Through Online….Again? Hours Spent 6 Hours

Image Detail

These days have been very tough on me due the unending homework that I have been having lately. I was like, nope, I’m gonna play Assassin’s Creed and “chilloot” for a while hahaha. What I found out was playing 6 hours straight can actually give strains to your eyes, mind, and body. I’m a gamer and I was always use to be exposed to video games for long period but that was years ago. Why? because Video games have evolve from sparingly awful graphics to high definition 3d game play and the expectations are very very high especially from the hit games such as Call of Duty, God of War, and Final Fantasy. I’m finally putting the hardest challenges that happen to me during the duration of this learning project.

The difficulties that I have experience was my Internet connection. If you’re internet connection sucks, don’t even attempt to play this game online, because lag issues will emerge all over the place and ruin your gameplay. Also, it will disconnect very often due to the technical difficulties that are presents in the game.

Another difficulty, was group isolation. this means that you can’t switch teams once a team of four formed a group. they will own and kill you every time, They will stun you repeated and escape most of your chase sequences, and they will rack up the most point and make you lose.

Lastly, The Final difficulty that I had was the trash talking in the lobbies. I don’t personally talk shit on my the lobbies and games but I shout when I win and what I find humiliating is that a lot of people talk shit at you with your proper consent  and reason. I dislike people who do that and proclaim themselves as bona fide “professional” players when they’re not.

Well, I over did it 27 hours and still counting ’cause I still have to finish the campaign mode and rock at it due to the experience I earned from multiplayer mode but, until then, You just have to wait lol. Peace out! for now that is lol
