Can you still remember the mixture of excitement and nerves as you prepared to start back at school after the long summer holidays? Someone took you for new shoes and school clothes and maybe a haircut so that you were smart and ready to go. You got new stationary and a new bag and the sense of anticipation built. Everyone asked you about school, which class you would be in, who your teachers would be and you began to feel the importance of what was to come.
In my endeavors to create a more positive classroom, I found it worked better to give myself a check mark when I encouraged each student, instead of giving children stars for doing things right. As a busy teacher of young children, my best intentions to comment on the kids’ actions or focus on their positive behaviors were often left undone by the end of each day. The checklist kept me focused.
A great idea is to put together a special dinner with your friends or possible your parents. Choose a fancy restaurant that has a full bar and serves a nice variety of wines. Do a little homework before you go and you can impress everyone by grabbing the wine list and ordering a nice bottle for the table. Or if you’re just not in to wine, order a mixed drink that you’ve never had before. In either case, when the server asks for your ID, calmly remove it from your purse or wallet and present it with confidence and a smile. The server will usually wish you a happy birthday.
All legitimate and important questions. Unfortunately, there are no easy answers or at least no absolute truth. The question: “Is an online degree better compared to a campus college degree” should be replaced by the question “Is an online degree a better choice for ME compared to a campus college degree”.
Most online examinations only let you try once, so as soon as you click the link, you’re going to be locked in. Make sure you’re prepared, have studied the chapters and notes, and be certain you know how many questions there will be and what style they’ll be in. Is it all multiple choice? Will there be a short essay at the end? Ask your professor if it isn’t clear in your syllabus. Knowing the test format will ensure you can be better prepared.
OK, this does not sound realistic, does it? Some of us mess it up real good and wish for a second chance. While working, and raising a family, we want to upgrade our education so we can get that $51,206 or more. If you are not lucky enough to be close to an educational institution, the internet provides some of the best opportunities to upgrade your educational level through something called an online distance education or an online education program.
