BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  2. Buckaroos is the local names for a cowboy. The word buckaroo is similar that “vaquero” in Spanish. In Spanish “Vaquero” is a shepherd of animals who possesses messes and cattles, traditionally he ride a horse, and often he realizes other tasks related to the mess.
    Buckaroo comes from the Arabic 'bakara' or ‘bakhara’ that also it means heifer ‘or’ young cow, and is possible that it has been taken by the Spanish during the centuries of Islamic domination.
    Originally the term was understood literally as ' boy who takes care of the cows ', but the modern sense has to see with the adult keepers of cattle of the American west of 1849.

    I have some more tips for exam success:

    - To do lists of concepts
    - To do schemes
    - To observe the drawings and graphs.
    - To do comparative pictures
    - To take notes of everything that the teacher

  3. This is the worst time of the course. The exams time is a period most stressed for the student. We have very exams in very little time. We have strive for approve all and pass a relax summer. I for example have four exams this week. I have study the weekend for try approve all the exams. I think the teachers don't have send homework during this time, because we haven't time for do all homework and study for all exams of that week. The teachers send very exercises and we haven't time for study too. I think if don't send many homework some students might get better notes in a exam. But the teachers must send homework and put the exams when they want, and we have study and do homework organizing our time. Even so, is a very stressed time for the sudents wants approve.

  4. The end of the course has come, these months have passed very quickly for me and my classmates. Now it's time to give everything we have in order to pass all subjects and have a good summer.
    On the one hand, I don´t agree with teachers who do not consider our views to put the dates of the tests, in fact, there are days when we have two or even got to have three.
    Moreover, teachers should consider the effort we make to study and do homework at the same time, or for example to do other activities in the afternoon. It must be a better distribution dates for we are not so saturated.
    As for study skills, you can make outlines, summaries, advance work each day not to accumulate and even expand knowledge on the Internet.
    In short, we are very tough weeks, but we must study hard because the beach and summer ahead.

  5. The school year is coming to end and this means exams. In the end of the year, there are exam of all subject and it is very stressful for the students.

    Students, in most cases, study in the last day and when they have got everyday one exam or two. For this reason, they are very stressful, but having so many exams is normal that they overwhelm. Most of people say “Students have got a good life because they don’t have to work” but that we don’t work, it doesn’t mean that we don’t strive.

    Good students stressed when the final exams come. They think that they won’t pass their exams. I think all students, for they don’t overwhelm, would plan what they will do every day. I recommend, also, doing breaks each one hour of the study. Another thing that I do for clean my mind, is go out to do exercise.

    To sum up, students are very stressful and they should do things to relax. If they go to the exams relaxed, the will do a good exam! When I sleep well, I do the exam better and I am more concentrate.

  8. A “buckaroo” means cowboy of the Great Basin and California region of the United States, from an Anglicization of the Spanish word “vaquero”.

    The school course is coming to the end. Now, it is the most overwhelmed time with all the exams, homework, projects... and, also, with the good weather (warm weather causes more laziness to study); but we have to make one last effort to pass all the exams and not to give up all the effort that we have done during the course, so we will be able to enjoy and spend a quiet summer.

    At the moment, time inevitably goes by, so we can use these tips to get the most benefit:

    1. Keep the place where you study nice and tidy..
    2. Take time for everything, and everything in its time (WhatsApp, television ...)
    3. Avoid bad mood.
    4. Take care and do not worry about unimportant things.
    6. Take things with calm and optimism.

    To relax, you can listen to music, have a break, and take a break of 10 minutes walking.

    Exams are the biggest source of stress for students. There is a lot of pressure when the day of the exam is coming and they have to study a lot of subjects.

    Nowadays, there are different kinds of food which help us. We must reduce saturated fats and sugars. It is necessary that we consume vegetables, legumes, fruits and vegetables, and cereals, pasta, rice when we have exams...

    Olive oil and dried fruit and nuts help us to achieve an adequate intellectual performance.

    Hair loss is at these times very common.

  9. Buckaroos are the names that people put to the cowboys in Australia or "vaqueros" in Spanish. Buckaroo is a word that has a origin of the west North American. In Australia it means a person who works in a proprietary where there're sheeps or cows. In Australian it is said Jackaroo which is a jovial word to appoint an apprentice in a hacienda, ranch ... etc. This word is made up of two English words: jack+kangaroo (an Australian marsupial).
    The final days of the course are coming and there are many exams to be done. The students are very stressed because they haven't got free time in the evenings and because they have to do a lot of homework and projects for up note. For example, I have conservatory and I have to have my things and my schedule very organized. When I come home from school, I eat quickly and I do my homework for after, I can take time to rest all afternoon on the couch.
    Here are my tips for a exam success :
    1.Listening to classical music before doing the exam.
    2.Sleep well the day before the exam.
    3.Studying in a room where there isn't noise.

  11. Some people become stressed when they have many exams in a row are stressed, and especially people who have activities in the afternoon.
    When the last weeks of the school arrive, it is the date when they put the exams (the most important) are more followed the people get stressed do not know how to organize. During that week we have to make an extra effort to pass the exams and be able to enjoy a good summer if the contents of the subject are too many In order to study better and get better the exam we have to meet a series of requirements:
    -Organize yourself
    -Study in a study site without noise.
    - Be focused, without getting lost, or entertain yourself.
    -To have a necessary rest
    -Don't take the phone before going to bed (You can not sleep well)
    -You have to study in time, if the subject is too long.
    The exams are always stressful for everybody.
