There have been plenty of events that have occurred throughout my life that have taught me so much and really have shaped me as a person.  The one event that stands out the most for me was during one of the hardest lacrosse tryout I’ve ever gone to.  It was the U-19 national team try-out and I wanted to come home after the first hour of a three-day try-out.  When I called home to basically complain and beg to come home my dad stopped me right away and told me, “Ali, the only way to be the best is to play against the best.”  I think the reason this stuck out as such a memorable learning experience is because it changed my mentality is because it made me understand even when you’re not the best, playing against the best is only gonna make you better.  This really affected how i thought and thus how i played.

    This is *just* barely acceptable. Six sentences? This doesn’t really reflect that you’ve engaged, or read, the material at all. Definitely aim higher for the next assignment or I’ll ask for a re-submission.

    I think this is an interesting example of learning; however, can you relate it to the development of critical thought that can cross from your experiences in sports to your experiences in learning more generally? In order to receive credit for this assignment, you’re going to need to resubmit it and, as required, offer citations from each of the chapters to demonstrate that you’ve read the material and have been able to relate what you’ve read to your own experience of learning in some way. Please resubmit by Wed Sept 28 (you can do this by adding a comment here with a revision of your first entry). Thanks!
