10/30 in-class writing

I have read Nguyen and Nichele’s articles. We don’t think our college education worth its costs. Nichele said: “College students should be made aware of their options, they should also be taught how to get their education without scholarship verse out-of-state tuition”.We have similar ideas that taking a variety of courses in the university is good for us to learn to be a well-rounded student and have different skills for application in the workforce.  One aim of getting into college is not only learning knowledge or receiving more information but also to learn critically thinking.

10/18 Reflection on education system

In China, due to a large amount of the population base, students need to study very hard and compete with each other to get into a good university.  Students have to choose one major for their study career at the beginning of sophomore, even they have no idea what’s this major is about. And it’s not easy for them to change the major once you decided. For most students in China, the university is a kind of place for them to learn more some specific skills like STEM than improve their critical thinking.  In people’ mind, the aim of getting into the university is to find a good job after the education. I would say improve students’ critical thinking skills is a better way to teach students. Teach students to have the ability to learn by themselves is more important than some specific skills.

9/13 audio essay pitch

I want to write some experience in my life and that somehow can represent my personality. Conrad has said that: “if you are brave, you will have the courage to come; but if you shrink back, they’re gonna be nothing left. ” I have been through several culture shots in my life.

When I was 8 years old, we move to a bigger town to start my elementary school education. that’s the first time I feel I was different than other kids. For close to my father workplace, we move to Nanjing when I was in third grade. The first year I have been laughed at by other kids lots of time cause I am a “stranger” to this city. Your dress is different; your tone is also different than other kids. No matter what, I need to get my life better and I was trying to get into the student union. before that, I faced a big challenge that I need to do a speech in front of all the classmates and teachers in the whole school. luckily, it was going pretty well. Since then, the kids nearby all come and make friend with me

the third culture shot: I came to American to seek my education.

I want to write some experience in my life and that somehow can represent my personality. Conrad has said that: “if you are brave, you will have the courage to come; but if you shrink back, they’re gonna be nothing left. ” I have been through several culture shots in my life. I like this quote very much cause that’s part of life story.

there was a young boy was born in a small village in China back to 1999. his grandparents are both farmers; his parents are both teachers.  At that time, between the village or town and city, there is a huge wealth gap. As anyone else in this society, poor people have always been laughed at. when this boy grows up to 8 years old and its time for him to go to elementary school.  since there no school in this poor town, all his family move to a bigger town which near the village. that’s the first time this boy felt he is different from any other kids. that boy which is me. for just depend on teacher’s small income. Our life is not that good so that my father quit his job and start his business.

Three years later, it’s time for me to go to third grades. for my better education chance and convenient to my father workplace, our whole family moved to Nanjing. The first year I have been laughed at by other kids lots of time cause I am a “stranger” to this city. Your dress is different; your tone is different; your habit still not belongs to them. That’s pretty bad for such an 11 years old child.  that time I didn’t know people will keep away something that you do not familiar with.  be brave

I have the same opinion as YIFU on how racial problems facing the children of immigrants in America. We both think the language which also is communication is very important.

YIFU thinks Knowing our identities and be proud of it is extremely important for us especially when we move to a new place. I agreed with that. Because only if we could understand ourself’s culture, so that we can have a  place to support us and give us our logic and ways to observe and study other culture.

Refugees is a group who has left his or her country of origin and is unable or unwilling to return because of war, violence, or persecution or a well-founded fear of persecution because of race, religion, nationality, political opinions, or membership in a particular social group.  Most refugees don’t have able to come back to their own country and have no choice to settle down in the U.S.  From 1990 to 2007, the amount of the refugee come to the United States is decreasing.

If you are approved as a refugee, you will receive a medical exam, a cultural orientation, help with your travel plans, and a loan for your travel to the United States. After you arrive, you will be eligible for medical and cash assistance.

Sometimes, refugees’ identity wouldn’t be accepted by the country they go to. So, international refugee law allows them to have right not to be returned to a place of persecution and protect their human rights.
