My first poem is a "cut-up" found poem from the below blogs:
- Week 2 Reflection
- Week 3 Reflection
- Week 4 Reflection
- Week 7 Reflection
- Week 9 Reflection
- Week 11 Reflection
I have now attended my first two college classes.
I truly believe this was the perfect class with the perfect instructor to re-start my college career. The first week he outlined the class and where he wants to take our minds, if we let him.
I am not a full time student, but full time everything else.
Professor M. started our class off in a great way.
His method was described on the board as disrupting the fixed pattern of a college classroom.
He grunted, clapped, snapped, my professor still has my complete attention.
In the writing process Mr. M is showing us it’s not just sitting and typing, but giving your mind time to work through the logistics.
Mr. M promises if we work through the process our skills of writing will show our work in the end. I guess I will keep on working.
Professor Mangini continued to show us he is a person just like any of us.
Professor M. teaches and gives examples of situations college students understand.
All semester we as a class have been persuaded by Mr. Mangini to appeal more so to a growth mindset and declare that a fixed is inferior.
My professor excites me with his knowledge of alternate learning.
Efforts are really being given towards Mr. M’s process. I want to be a great writer, and when I get that one story I want to maybe have it published.
I am still learning to question my world and want the knowledge I obtained.
Not just in a critical thinking class, but how to become a critical thinker and question the world around me.
I now have my teacher’s attention.
This poem is Erasure to where I took one text and erased the majority of the words to give a new meaning. This was taken from the below blog:
A Growth Mindset
Mindset of growth shape boundless direction.
Educating myself, identify the brain is like a muscle and we can keep working at it to become a more intellectual.
Neuroplasticity exists and challenging the brain will make it grow, I will continue to challenge my mind as I live.
In the way I learn, approached with tough times and truly believe positivity.
God blessed me to see struggles and challenge to work harder to gain knowledge.
Asking questions obviously shows a person of a greater confidence.
Struggles with knowledge as well as a course in mindsets.
Growth mindsets encourage you to make mistakes, learn for intellectual capacity.
My stand point, absorb everything from not only from education, but also my environment.
