New Semester

It has been quite sometime since my last entry. Since then both of the programs are at the full throttle. Though for the UiTM Program the schedule is still a bit crazy, most of the classes have started with the lesson. As for my BEL classes, I am still a bit puzzle with the schedule, especially with my section 03. I've been to that class twice, at both times there were no student at all!
For this semester, I am only involved with UiTM program. It has been awhile since I last teach UiTM program. I am looking forward for this new semester with a lot of new and fresh faces, not forgetting new challenges in and outside classrooms.

Towards The End

Next week will be the final week of classes for this semester!! All of us are starting to feel the heat of the final exams. The students are busy finishing all the class projects and assignments. There is no more time to procrastinate anymore. As for me, there are tons of things need to be settled before the end of the semester. First and foremost, I have to make sure I have covered all of the syllabus so that my students won't have problem answering the final exam questions.

Finally it's over..pheww..

Hehehehe.. I'm writing this with friend NY next to me.. she is laughing right now, dunno what is she laughing at... hmmm???? She seems so darn happy today, maybe last nite.... she gayuted with her bf all nite long..... hmmm... jeles2...
Ok...she's gone...
So...what I have been up to lately?? Well... yesterday was the closing ceremony day for english week 2005. Phewww!!! Finally it's over!! Yeah yeah.. No more coming to college in the evening and went home in the wee hour of morning...
Let's talk about the closing, initially it was planned to be held on the 1st of October, due to various reasons, it has to be postponed to yesterday. The ceremony started an hour late, this is due to the problem with participants who were not on time. The students were supposed to be at the library (the venue for the ceremony) at 8.30am. They failed to be on time coz some of them got classes and some of them were still deep in sleepy head land...after one hour...it's time to call the Madam Director... The arrival of Mdm Director marks the starting of the ceremony....

Mid-Sem

Just got back from proctoring BEL 100 mid-sem exam. I have an hour to spare before my second class of the day starts. Funny things happened during the exam just now, there were students who still do not know the name of their lecturers. If they just spelled the name incorrectly that is acceptable. But in this case they simply wrote down the name of the lecturer who is not teaching them that particular subject. How ignorant can they be? Another incident was when a student called my colleague (also a sensei) 'abang' hehehee...

Hello Again

It has been quite a while since my last post. I've been quite busy with classes and students' activities. This week is the sports week for the college, if I'm not mistaken this would be the first event of its kind. (At least since I work here)

Apart from that, next week is the English Week!! Arrghhh... things are pretty hectic now, lots of things need to be finalised! Hope everything will turn out to be ok.

Argghh, it's almost 1pm, time to go..

Bye for now!

ARGUMENTATIVE ESSAY

To all ENG 142 students:

For today's class I want you to go through the following notes on argumentative essay writing. Make sure you read and understand everything in the notes! This is because for the next class I will teach you more on argumentative essay and after that all of you will have to write an argumentative essay.

WRITING AN ARGUMENTATIVE ESSAY

  • In writing an argumentative essay, you will have to make a statement or give an opinion on a particular issue and then support it with reasons, facts and examples.
  • Argumentative writing-the point you make is debatable or open to question, which means that it may not be readily accepted by some of your readers.
  • An argumentative essay is like a debate where one side is in favour of and the other side is against the issue being debated.
  • However, an argumentative essay is in written form whereas a debate is in spoken form.


PLANNING AN ARGUMENTATIVE ESSAY

It is useful to prepare an outline first before writing an argumentative essay. The outline includes the points that will help you to write a complete argumentative essay.


INTRODUCTION
Arouse the reader’s interest, introduce the subject and highlight its importance
State your stand on the subject

DEVELOPMENT
Indicate one or two of the more important arguments against your position
Refute the positions you have just stated
Present additional arguments in support of your position

CONCLUSION
Restate your position on the issue
Present an emotional appeal for your position, perhaps warning what might happen if your position is not accepted.






TEENAGERS AND JOBS

“The pressure for a teenager to work is great, and not just because of the economic plight in the world today. Much of it is peer pressure to have a little bit of freedom and independence and to have their own spending money. The concern we have is when the part-time work becomes the primary focus.” These are the words of Roxanne Bradshaw, educator and officer of the National Education Association. Many people argue that working can be a valuable experience for the young. However, working more than about fifteen hours a week is harmful to adolescents because it reduces their involvement with school, encourages a materialistic and expensive lifestyle and increases the chance of having problems with drugs and alcohol.

Schoolwork and the benefits of extracurricular activities tend to go by the wayside when adolescents work long hours. As more and more teens have filled the numerous part-time jobs offered by fast-food restaurants and malls, teachers have faced increasing difficulties. They must both keep the attention of tired pupils and give homework to students who simply do not have time to do it. In addition, educators have noticed less involvement in the extracurricular activities that many consider a healthy influence on young people. School bands and athletic teams are losing players to work and sports events are poorly attended by working students. Those teens who try to do it all for examples homework, extracurricular activities and work may find themselves exhausted and prone to illness. A recent newspaper story, for example, described a girl in Pennsylvania who came down with mononucleosis as a result of aiming for good grades, playing on two school athletic teams and working thirty hours a week.

Another drawback of too much work is that it may promote materialism and an unrealistic lifestyle. Some parents claim that working helps teach adolescents the value of dollar. Undoubtedly that can be true. It is also true that some teens work to help out with the family budget or to save for college. However, surveys have shown that the majority of working teens use their earnings to buy luxuries such as video game systems, CD players and disks, clothing and even cars. These young people, some of whom earn $400 or more a month, do not worry about spending wisely as because they can just about have it all. In many cases, experts point out, they are becoming accustomed to a lifestyle they would not be able to afford several years down the road, when they no longer have parents paying for car insurance, food, lodging and so on. At that point they will be hard-pressed to pay for necessities as well as luxuries.

Finally, teenagers who work a lot are more likely than others to get involved with alcohol and drugs. Teens who put in long hours may seek a quick release from stress, just like the adults who need to drink a couple of martinis after a hard day at work. Stress is probably greater in our society today than it has been at any time in the past. Also, teens who have money are more likely to get involved with drugs.

Teenagers can enjoy the benefits of work while avoiding its drawbacks, simply by limiting their work hours during the school year. As is often the case a moderate approach will be the most healthy and rewarding.

I Had Fun

Earlier today... in the afternoon, I had class with PIP students. It was a very fun class!! I had so much fun teaching that class. It was very interesting to see all of the students took part in the discussion especially when we got to the part of understanding the short story that we were discussing. To PIP students: It was funny to see all of you guys and girls participated (arguing most of the time) in the discussion. I'm hoping that the same thing will happen for my ENG 142 class... for ENG 142 students: I just can't wait to do the same activity with all of you!!

My Latest Favourite Song

Boulevard of Broken Dreams
By: Green Day
I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know were it goes
But its only me and I walk alone
I walk this empty street
On the boulevard of broken dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk alone
I walk alone (x3)
I walk a...
My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
Till then I walk alone
Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah AhhhAh-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ahhh
I'm walking down the line
That divides me somewhere in my mind
On the border line of the edge
And where I walk alone
Read between the lines
What's fucked up and every thing's all right
Check my vital signs to know I'm still alive
And I walk alone
I walk alone (x3)
I walk a...
My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
Till then I walk alone
Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah AhhhAh-Ah Ah-Ah Ah-Ah Ahhh
I walk alone, I walk alone
I walk this empty street
On the boulevard of broken dreams
Where the city sleeps
And I'm the only one and I walk a..
My shadow's the only one that walks beside me
My shallow heart's the only thing that's beating
Sometimes I wish someone out there will find me
Till then I walk alone

I Love Friday

I had a pretty productive day today. Managed to get most of the things done. The most importan thing for today is to make sure that all preparations for tomorrow's English Unlimited (EU) first real program will go smoothly without a hitch. Need to make sure that all the things needed for the cash wash program are purchased.

Before the lunch break today asked the EU committee members to distribute flyers...here's the photo of them...

thursday's blues

Felt quite worried today for my ENG 142/section 05 class. It seems like that we haven't really started the class yet. The only thing we've done so far was writing an essay about "The Best Gift(s) I Have Ever Received". Hopefully by next week we will really...really start learning something... (but..hey.. you did learn to sign up and write your blog..right?)
So far we are still having problem with thursday's class. This is because your ENG 142 class is clashed with my other class. So..we need to change thursday's class to friday morning. Any problem with that???

First entry

Should have done this last week. Last week's class was quite an unfortunate one. The college's internet server was out of order. Though I'm sure most (or maybe all) of the students were quite happy with the 30 minutes of class. Hope this blogging thingy will be up and running for the whole class starting this week.
