Jayden Brown's Student Portfolio
I learn best auditorily, or I listen more often to learn instead of hands-on time or visualizing it. I have taken another test and I am going to again highlight the three statements I most agree with.
- Sit where you can hear.
- Use flashcards to learn new words and read them out loud.
- Record yourself spelling words and listen to the recording.
Homework. Homework. Homework
Homework is a extremely important part of your learning and school. There are many ways to complete your homework efficiently and smart. You can try making it fun. Once, I had homework to make a logbook of a volcanologist observing a volcano. I tried to make a tragic story about the troubles of defeating volcanoes. I pretended I was writing an actual story and I had as much fun as possible.
Reading For Fun
I way to read for fun is to pick a story or book that would intrigue you and interest you. This will help you not just read for school. If you like the mystery setting and mythology, I recommend the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan. I have read almost every single books of his and I never could stop reading. If you like mystery and fantasy, I also recommend Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. I have also read all of the books and I was immediately hooked.
Good Character is extremely important if you want to make it anywhere in this world. No one wants to work with a disrespectful slob, but they do want to work with a compassionate team player. I have taken a quiz to determine what type of character and job suits me. I have chosen to study the web developer career. This career falls under the focused category. Here are some question answers.
- I feel that I'm pretty good at focusing on a task at hand.
- I lose focus when I am distracted by other people either talking or making random noises.
- Being focused in life is beneficial because you can finish a task faster and much more reliably than a non-focused individual would complete the task
Trying A Career On For Size
I have taken another test to choose a career. It asked me for my specialities and interests and choose jobs based on that data. I have chosen the computer programming job. I will write everything I can find about this job.
