OOpen Book Exam

Good morning ladies and gentleman, allow me to introduce myself, my name is Gabby Evalin, and the reason why I’m here today is to share my thought about Open-Book examination method. As you all already know, an Open-Book is an assessment method that allows students to look at their text books, notes, and other materials during the examination process. And close book-exam is exactly the opposite, students have to recall everything from their memory. And this is exactly why I oppose the use of open-book exam method. First, remembering the content of the book is important, but there’s something more important, that is to understand the content of the book. When you study for a close-book exam, you are prone to memorize your text book rather than understanding the meaning, because the questions asked in a close book exam lead you to copy things you remember from your text book and not think. You are unconsciously forced to memorize your text book. On the other hand, open book exams let you to find information, analyse, and most important, think critically. For example, i think some of you agree that practice is more important than theory. This works like that, open book exams let you to apply the knowledge to real life situation, find solution, and think. Second, open book exam and close book exam have the same retention time. I believe that when you are encourage to think, your memory regarding the material will be longer than when you are only memorizing. For example, it’s hard when you try to memorize a mathematic formula, but when you try to apply the formula to solve the question, and make a solution, you remember better and longer. Third, grade isn’t everything, students should have some free time to do their passion and hobbies. With the use of close book exam method, not only this let learners to feel more stressful and anxiety during…...

Open Marriages: a Closed Chapter to a Open Book

...separate houses and making lawyers wealthy. One must wonder, why can’t people work it out? What missing element must we discover to keep the fire burning, so to speak? Some have already found it. Others remain clueless; but most deny, even reject the possibility that monogamy may play a part in the demise of their relationships. As previously mentioned, however, marriage isn't entirely working, at least for a subset of the population. Non-monogamous coupling, otherwise known as an open marriage, can sustain the relationship between two people. Slowly, society has begun to redefine the institution of marriage. Not too long ago, two people of the same sex could not come together as one and have it legally recognized. Those days have come to an end, with more and more states granting homosexuals the right to marry. Although not yet widely accepted, a movement has taken place, and its supporters no longer feel shamed upon. Granted, that same zeal should arise for open marriage. Though it varies by definition, open marriage is generally considered ”a committed” marital relationship between two people who, under a set of mutually-agreed upon rules, engage in sexual encounters with various partners other than their spouse; nevertheless, it is not to be confused with polyamory, a lifestyle that promotes multiple “romantic relationships” between any combinations of people at the same time. Truthfully speaking, people want excitement in their lives. People get hobbies, move to a......

Специально подобраны ситуации для ролевых игр, совпадающие по тематике с разделами учебника, а также методические рекомендации студентам, готовящимся к проведению микроуроков (автор И.Н. Верещагина). Авторы ESSENTIAL COURSE Unit One text From: DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE By R. Gordon Richard Gordon was born in 1921. He has been an anaesthetist at St. Bartholomew's Hospital,1 a ship's surgeon and an assistant editor of the British Medical Journal. He left medical practice in 1952 and started writing his "Doctor" series. "Doctor in the House" is one of Gordon's twelve "Doctor" books and is noted for witty description of a medical student's years of professional training. To a medical student the final examinations are something like death: an unpleasant inevitability to be faced sooner or later, one's state after which is determined by care spent in preparing for the event. An examination is nothing more than an investigation of a man's knowledge, conducted in a way that the authorities have found the most fair and convenient to both sides. But the medical student cannot see it in this light. Examinations touch off his fighting spirit; they are a straight contest between himself and the examiners, conducted on well-established rules for both, and he goes at them like a prize-fighter. There is......

The Open Book

...The Open Book It was a sweet sunny day of February 9, 1991 at 2 o’clock in the afternoon when birds are chirping and flowers are blossoming out from their buds. Amidst the calmness and the hush of the air touching the leaves of a narra tree in the front yard, a very loud voice went out from a small nipa house. “It’s a boy”, said by an old woman in a cracking voice. It was like singing in chorus – a tone like a lullaby when the child cried. It was like a paradigm shift, who would have thought that for nine months of swimming, playing, kicking and eating inside a mother’s womb, a child was born named “Kenneth” by his father after baptism. I am the youngest in the family. My name was chosen using a random method – and yes, not based in astrology, horoscopes or my father’s favorite basketball player. I could have imagined how happy my parents were when I survived the process and given the opportunity to see the beautiful world. I believe that I got most of my physical traits from my parents through genetics. I am 5’6 in height and my father too. Aside from the height, I got my skin tone from my mother. People always say that I look like my mother. I believe that not only do I got most of my physical traits from my mother but I got much more. My mother and I have a lot of traits that are similar. We both think alike and have many common interests. Genetic is one way of explaining the similarities, but I think it is more because of my childhood days. My mother took care......

Life Is an Open Book

...English 1010 July 5, 2015 Life is an Open Book: A Visual Analysis Brad Spencer’s free standing brick sculpture, Life is an Open Book, is one of his many pieces representing a profound declaration. This particular piece is located outside the Children’s Library at The Green Uptown in Charlotte, North Carolina. Many walk by daily. Tourist stop to pose for photos, and Pinners repin on Pinterest, but does any body really see what this piece is telling at us? It’s reminding us that our children are hungry for knowledge, direction and will stop at nothing to get it. I agree with Spencer that brick sculpture has a familiarity which is comforting to people, even though it can be dated back to ancient Babylonian times. In addition to it’s low maintenance, it blends well in settings where other brick construction can be found, and compliments surrounding landscaping. Many of Spencer’s pieces are on city walkways, local grocery stores and in park entrances. In this particular piece, Spencer has made the point that children have a desire. Whether this point is that the desire is for exploration of books or gaining knowledge about life I am unsure, but with the title of the piece I feel it is the latter. One child hangs on tightly to the progress he has made in reaching the top of the book. In life, when one advances to a new area one has worked so hard to obtain. they hold tight to that advancement. Another child peers around the side of the book, as if looking for something,......
