The ambitious climb high and perilous stairs, and never care how
to come down; the desire of rising hath swallowed up their fear of a fall.
As you reflect on ALL of the work, you have done this semester in
CyberEnglish, consider how it is the first year of high school and how it has been
important in setting a good academic foundation for your high school experience.
Explain how the skills in CyberEnglish have helped you in other classes. Point out
your pride, show your successes, explain the process you went through to achieve this
success. Be detailed with hypertext links to your work as evidence, as you explain
your experience in CyberEnglish and its impact on you as a scholar. Using "BECAUSE"
will help. Don't forget about the archives. Call this file webfolio.html.
Where are you now?
In the first part, I want you to write about how this year in CyberEnglish has helped you see
your strengths and weaknesses. I want you to reflect on how you embraced your strengths to
overcome or recognize your weaknesses. I want you to make hypertext links from this final document
to your work to help illustrate your actions and to comment on how these artifacts of yours
show you using your strengths to help you with your weaknesses. What this part of the essay
will do is to have you assess where you are now in June as compared to where you were in
September. You will be assessing your performance, the work you did this year.
Introduce a section of your work as a sample and provide a link to the whole work. Then
analyze the section as it reflects on the whole piece.
Be sure to link to the assignments and to each of the larger work you mention.
The reason a lot of people do not recognize opportunity is because it usually goes
around looking like hard work.
Thomas Alva Edison
Where will you be?
In the second part of the essay you are to discuss your future. We have established the
present as detailed in the first part. Now you want to discuss how this semester's experience will
be used as a springboard for you in achieving success, not only next semester, but also in high school. Outline how you plan to
use the CyberEnglish experience to graduate from high school with class, grace, and high
academic achievement. Simply saying what you want is not enough in this part. What have you
done to show your future will be better. Provide evidence in your current work that will help
you explain how your future will be what you want and that you can achieve it. I don't want
you to talk the talk, I want you to walk the walk. Show us, don't tell us. Remember you will
have to proofread ALL of your work.
What work that you have done this year provides a glimpse of what you can do. What did
you do this year that you didn't think you could and did.
Use quotes from Quotes of the Day or
another source throughout your essay.
We will start in BlackBoard.
