Dr.Chew explained that there are four factors that contribute to academic success which are minimizing distractions, maximizing focus, developing accurate metacognition, deep, appropriate processing of critical concepts and practicing retrieval and application. When I watched the videos "How to Get the Most out of Studying" I learned about a lot of ways I could get study better. In the video Dr. Chew explained that an ineffective skill to studying is to just memorize the facts which I find is true. In the past I thought this way of studying would help me but in reality in made me do terrible on tests. In high school I would memorize facts for test but in college teachers expect you to know more than just facts or definitions, they expect you to be able to apply it to different situations and even compare it to other facts. I now know that using this skill in college would not be beneficial at all. One thing that I learned from watching Dr.Chew’s videos was that one of the study strategy he talked about that would make me process information deeply is question generation. Question generation is when you generate questions for yourself after reading a chapter in a book. This will help me in college because after I read a chapter in a text book I can ask myself questions and see if I am actually understanding the material I’m reading or if it’s all going over my head. I can decide whether or not I need to reread some of the chapter so I could understand the chapter better. I believe this skill will serve me well in understanding the information in chapters. Some things that I found were my academic strengths were that I am good at critically thinking and good at time management. I’m good at motivating myself to work on assignments ahead of time. I make sure to plan out how long I’m going to work on assignments without interruptions. I also make a list of priorities of what assignments I need to get done first. One of the major things I’ve noticed I need to improve in would be asking questions when I need help or I’m struggling with an assignment. I am too shy to ask my professor questions because I am afraid that that professor is too busy or would think my questions is “stupid” and that I should understand the assignment. I need to become more confident and put my education above my fear of being thoughts of as “stupid”. Another thing I need to improve on to succeed in college would be to read the books that I am given in the class. It’s hard to read the book after I have took notes on the lecture because I always think that my professor has already gone over the information so why should I reread information that I already know. I know that reading the book is important because some information the professor does not have time to go over but still expects you to know. One lesson that I think that would be of particular importance to me as I pursue college was the way to highlight which is you have make sure to read the whole text and be selective when highlighting. Highlighting is based on its importance and how it relates to the rest of the information. I find this important because in every class you are expected
Final Paper Assignment
Religious Attendance and its Affect on Feelings toward Homosexuals
For a long time, it has been known that the more religious an individual is, the less likely he/she would be to have positive feelings toward gay men and lesbians. This is because many religious ideologies characterize homosexuality as a sin. Religion is usually introduced to one at a young age so those attitudes and beliefs would stick with a person despite a changing society, like the…

I have learned that the United States is very diverse in everything. Not just people, but culture and religion too. There are so many different cultures that live in the United States today it makes my head spin. I ride public transportation to work everyday and to see all the different cultures of people that ride the same thing is wondrous. I just sit back and listen to all the different things going on around me and think “Wow, I am in the “Melting Pot”…
record companies money.
The seemingly innocent act of downloading music for free isn’t just hurting the music industry, but it’s morally wrong for people to do it. When we are children, we are taught not to steal candy for the store, copy a paper from someone else, or to take a CD from a music store. I think we can agree throughout are society it is immoral to steal, but people still don’t see the ethical issues with downloading music illegally. Many people think illegal downloading is like…
I think of capitalism as an economics system that is controlled by individuals and private companies instead of the government. In capitalism individuals and companies own and direct most of the resources used to produce goods and services. People are free to decide how they will earn and spend their income. Companies can decide what goods and services to provide and how much to charge for them. I took this picture while making a quick stop at the bank. I thought Chase bank represented…

Native Americans have had a long and trying journey since the discovery of America. Throughout the course of history they have proven to be driven, fearless, and in many cases even helpful. As we explore the history of the Native Americans through six different events we will see how wars, breaking of peace treaties, and restrictions on their spiritual beliefs forever changed the Native American’s role in America.
First I will like to talk about the Nez Perce people who are Native American people…
Final Research Project
The United States does not provide health care to its citizens the way the rest of the industrialized world does. Instead of guaranteeing coverage for all, it relies on a patchwork system of market-based institutions in which those who are insured sometimes receive coverage as a condition of employment, sometimes purchase individual policies and sometimes obtain coverage through public programs such as Medicaid and the State Children’s Health Insurance Program…
