Gamespotters, I did an miniature essay on a Speech & Debate Tournament. How does it look: Speech & Debate Tournament Speech & debate tournaments can better be understood in groups like the National Forensic League. This league's mission is to help high and middle schools with skills and values in forensics. The National Forensic League greatly believes that students will become outstanding in areas like effective communicating and democratic society leading. For a long time, they have been a non-profit organization in forensics. The National Forensic League has a code of honor that has five steps. These include humility, integrity, leadership, service, and respect. Humility shows that regardless of how smart a speaker is, they have the utmost respect for other spokespeople. Integrity deals with getting respect from other forensics members. Much definitely goes to speech & debate tournaments (Thunder Data Systems, 2007) What to understand about this event is that there are speeches of various subjects. Even in the beginning, I never thought I would greatly enjoy these speeches. In the first round my favorite speaker was Marian Shower. I enjoyed her speech about wrestling because she talked about hoe physical and mental the activity was. Of course I liked the later rounds better than the beginning ones. From rounds two and three, some highlightable speakers were Brandon Miller and some Greek girl whose name I could not remember. What I saw in the Greek girl's speech was a very emotional story about love. With Brandon Miller's speech, he told me about how important NSA surveillance is. Even the debates wee just as awesome but a little intimidating. Going to this event was stupendous because it made me more comfortable about my communication studies class. I would say that the speeches were still somewhat varied even though most were about political issues. For instance, in round one hearing about the history of hurricanes was rewarding. The speaker Marc Alania talked about how to prepare for them and the different parts of the destructive object. In round three my favorite speech topics were about the Washington March and frisk practice. The Washington March was intriguing because the speaker Kane Wu showed how equality is still a problem. Tanner Hayes spoke to me about how the frisk practice is very nosy. This practice is the spectating within all individuals' lives. For intellectual purposes I would attend events like these often.

Gamespotters, I have an essay here on teacher concepts so please look at it (sorry for some explicit parts): Intrinsic rewards to teaching also extrinsic rewards; discuss and name student diversity types in class; social problems affecting todays students; skills that make teachers meet students needs and list several? There are definitely several kinds of rewards to teaching. I can easily say that these award types are complete opposites. Teachers definitely need to use the most appropriate type when teaching students. Intrinsic and extrinsic rewards go toward two motivation types. Intrinsic rewards go toward being interested in learning regardless of the subject. Obviously, extrinsic rewards go toward being involved in activities by being barely interested and not looking for rewards. Still, extrinsic motivation is needed in an individuals life regardless of being intrigued or uninterested. Behavior psychologists further say that extrinsic rewards are common because of a persons addiction to being drawn toward activities. For instance, smarter students will take advantage to understand any subject whether if it is physiology, algebra, etc. Many students see intrinsic rewards in school as being the likes of recess. Within teaching obviously, they see the learning of countless subjects as being stressful (Kaplan, 2010). As your school life progresses, student diversity definitely becomes problematic. This is mostly in college because many scholars are Caucasian and Asian. This is not a serious problem but student diversity definitely makes a school more appealing. At university colleges for example, I often expect to see various types of Caucasians and Asians in classrooms. Whether they are English, Irish, Scottish, Chinese, Japanese, Filipinothe list goes on. Simply out these race types dominate colleges. Because of these high percentages, diversity training becomes intact. The roots of this training come from the segregation of Africans and Caucasians in schools. Diversity training further ties in to the U.S. Equal Opportunity. This ruling shows that within school, students should not be judged based on gender, ethnicity, national origin, etc. Diversity training is needed because it lowers problems based on appearance. This is based on several factors within harassment, adversaries, and aggression. Diversity training works within classrooms because of the training, items, and group order obviously given. This training can be useful in schools if it tells stories related to the problems of racism (Evans, 2013). For a while social problems often affected the performance of students. There are many factors which include family, money, other students, etc. Thankfully there are still ways to cope with these dreadful problems. I believe that the biggest problems affecting todays students is school costs. The schools serve a purpose here as they should find ways to make their area a better working environment. Obviously racism is a quandary at schools and even though teachers can stop this in classrooms, outside of them is another story. Minority groups often had frustrations in the school system. If all this money helped out private schools, the same should go toward students from minority backgrounds. The economy is seen as troublesome for the kids who want to go to college. A study from National Center for Education Statistics shows the frequency of school dropouts. The reasoning behind this is money and mostly low income students do this to help out their family. Drugs definitely were a known social problem within schools. These items led to horrendous events within the likes of pregnancy, heists, and killings. The school world is not perfect but scholars should not be victims of the society (Sheahan, 2013). Versatility definitely plays a strong role in teaching. To become an experienced teacher, you have to adapt differently in your classrooms. Simply put, the more you teach the easier it becomes. Every teacher is different and some are better than others. Several teacher skills include informal instruction, direct instruction, inquiry based learning, cooperative learning, and information processing strategy. Informal instruction is a minor way of talking to students. This skill is pretty much used in the beginning of school as part of events like name games. Direct instruction is a common teacher skill dealing with lecturing. This is often seen in college but is only somewhat useful. This is because students have to write down the information given by the teacher at a rapid pace. Inquiry based learning works as a skill for teachers in problem solving and creative thinking. This method is definitely student oriented and can seriously be seen as creative teaching. Cooperative learning is a skill by teachers that involves having scholars in small groups. It relates to differentiation as the groups of students often have varied education levels. The information processing strategy is a teaching skill that requires facts for understanding (Harris, 2013). References Evans, M. (2013). Diversity Training for Students.

Gamespotters, Please see if this essay of intelligence types is worthwhile: Which intelligences are your strongest; which area would be your best toward presenting information; how would you show understanding and in what way would you enjoy others learning information? Every intelligence type here is definitely useful. The intelligence types more useful to me include a musical menu or visual menu. I picked the musical menu because my passion for music can definitely turn in to an educational style. My reason for picking a visual menu is to show that pictures have meanings that create stories. Generally speaking, any activity that we do has some intellectual value. Musical intelligence, along with the seven other types does not have a specific order. This intelligence type can be seen within, singing, explaining lyrics, etc. Singing works well with musical intelligence because familiar and new words are often heard. Explaining lyrics work because they make us think about words differently. However, with artists like Brian Culbertson with songs like Lights off, it requires a different type of educational bearing. This is because he is a jazz musician. Many kids like music so with musical intelligence it is easy to get their attention. The history of musical intelligence is really deep. Traits within its background include instrument playing, composers, etc. Though instrument playing is still an elective within a childs education, it still helps the kid prevail intellectually. Composer skills can help with the childs critical thinking skill as it helps them think about problems in a different manner. We may not think about it but singing helps on a reading level (Bogod, 1998). Visual intelligence is just as creative as the other intelligence mentioned. Examples of its use can be seen in movies, imagination, etc. Movies within visual intelligence are totally obvious as children learn to think creatively. Moreover, imagination fits well here also as kids see a small concept like numbers then turns it into something more. Visual intelligence carries on within a childs repertoire consistently (WillyWalnut, 2002). Out of the two intelligences that I picked, it is easy for me to stick with the music type. I would present music in a way that it is not only fun but also brainy. The music world is very vast but is livelier if you have unique artists like David Hidalgo. Interesting songs by him include Have My Way with You. With musical intelligence activities, it would be my last part of my teaching because students still need assistance with other subjects like science. Kids are very picky with music just like the subjects they learn. When I present information to them in a musical manner, I will need variety of subgenres like new wave. So musical intelligence would work well for me toward giving information as long as it is appealing. With new wave, some interesting musicians would be Malcolm McLaren, Boomtown Rats, etc. Regardless, even at young ages music memory sticks with children as they get older. Furthermore, it is another pinnacle portion in musical intelligence. Since I prefer musical intelligence, it only makes sense to show how I utilize it. Individuals know about musical intelligence if they understand aspects like sounds and rhythms in music. I use music intelligence as a way of anticipating future songs I would make. This is a skill I would use for my classroom. Moreover, musical intelligence comes from concepts like word understanding and clear speaking. Most people have some form of musical intelligenceit just depends on your musical appreciation (Cherry, 2013). My opinion about musical intelligence is it was more understandable in older decades. Subgenres like vocal jazz and new age have musical value. Others like dance pop and metal really do not have any educational value in the form of music. From processing class information, we can see some folks as being music thinkers. We can become great with showing information in school as some of us are born as musical figures. Overall, music is important in school presentations just like other subjects (Conjecture Corporation, 2013). Showing musical intelligence is definitely easy if you are already passionate about music. Musical intelligence is just like English because word understanding is required. The only difference is music involves sounds and kids would likely be more interested in this. I could show musical understanding if my artist variety is engrossing. Some fascinating artists include Herb Alpert and Wiley. Musical intelligence for me can easily give understanding as it is educational and enjoyable. Getting others to understand your teaching in musical intelligence is crucial. For the kids who deal with music often, they would likely sing from how I was teaching. This action makes musical intelligence a respectful facet. Just like any music teacher, regardless of the positive music I playI expect them to sing or do body movement with the song while still being educationally involved. Musical intelligence is definitely a work of the century (Piper, 2003). Visual intelligence should be a useful tactic to make kids understand schoolwork. This is because kids like pictures and it gets them more involved with schoolwork. So obviously I would have pictures scattered in my classroom while teaching my students subjects. I would go even further by talking to my kids about what do the chosen pictures mean to them. This is because there are many words to show what a picture means. To me this intelligence types makes me think of art classes. A lot goes into showing kids the importance of visual intelligence. Unsurprisingly, this intelligence has to be born in youngsters from the beginning. Of course I would want my students to be spontaneous about the works of art, regardless of its generation. Visual intelligence is amazing as it deals with the surroundings of our universe. With careers it is very widespread as it is beneficial for architects, photographers, etc (Personality Max, 2013).

Gamespotters, Please see if my work about the POW WOW is good please: The POW WOW event definitely has a broad history. Its popularity has even led to it being an activity within elementary and high schools. For the POW WOW event in Stockton, this is its thirty second year. Within Southern California, its existence was seen in Sycuan and Barona Traditional Gatherings. The purpose of POW WOW is to remind everyone about Native American dancing from ancient times. Though the dancers mysterious attires are known in United States, the same goes for Canada and Mexico. The styles variously seen in Mexico include Havasupai, Cahuilla, etc. As time goes on the POW WOW will still be famous (Calie, 2013). The POW WOW was a very interesting ethnic event. The dancing that I saw was a lot of careful arm movement and jumping around. Moreover, the dancers followed each other in a very important line. What I saw was that some of them were dancing while some were slowly moving. Though this event is highly about Native American heritage, the singing made me think otherwise. While I was hearing the Cherokee leaders singing, it made me think of other worldbeat styles. I was thinking of African or Hispanic music styles. Being here is definitely an appealing activity and it made me more multicultural. Worldbeat was never popular within North America but it has widespread success in other countries (Allmusic, 2013). I definitely have some modest stuff to say about this activity. Though I would not attend this event often, it is still nice to see some different musical culture. To me singing and drum beats are the creation toward a song. Though the songs are good, I would not put them on my music player immediately. For the other part, it was pretty amazing because any body moving leads to enjoyable dancing. Another reason why the songs were just okay to me is because they were short. Nonetheless, it was not an exhilarating event but it was fun. References Allmusic. (2013). Worldbeat. Retrieved August 31, 2013 from allmusic.com/subgenre/worldbeat-ma0000011922 Calie. (2013).

Gamespotters, Please tell me how this essay looks for my teacher class: "Why do you want to be a teacher; intrinsic rewards of being a teacher, extrinsic rewards of being a teacher" I want to become a teacher because I value education. Without the concepts of school I will never be as smart as I can. Teachers deserve more respect as what you learn from them can be useful in a variety of areas. They are just as essential as a doctor. First I will become a teacher in elementary schoolthen become a professor at a university. Teachers are definitely intrinsic as they help you obtain more knowledge. This is why common statements are made saying that school will make your life easier. Moreover, most teachers have some intrinsic value. They are a necessity to the community and definitely need to be paid higher salaries. Sometimes, what you learn from your teachers is better compared to the knowledge given by your parents. Some extrinsic parts of being a teacher are the money and students. Money is something to talk about because they are not paid enough. This could come from the dropout rate of students. Students go toward extrinsic rewards because some are unruly. This can come from their behavior, harassment toward other students, etc.; still, the bad parts of being a teacher can be worked against. Wensea Guewell
