WEEK 2 My perception about hostel life has changed since I stayed in IPPM hostel. Living in hostel has shown me reality and the other sides of life.

First, I learnt to manage my time. For example, early in the morning, I wake up, then I go to bathroom, get ready for class, walk together with my colleagues and not only that, I also go to BISA from Monday to Thursday from 7pm until 9pm.

In other words, by staying in the hostel, I learnt how to follow the schedules give and disciplines myself to be a better person. In fact, I also realize the sweet of friendship and teamwork.

I miss all those during my upper secondary in my former school. Although I had two weeks experience staying in hostel when I was in form one, but because of homesick, I could not make it.

Now, this is the third week staying in hostel, I really enjoy my life. In fact, I am very happy because I manage to get IPPM, near to my hometown. I do not feel any problem because my family can come anytime when I need them.

I also prefer to have an instructions on paper. These learners need to see the teacher's body language and facial expression to fully understand the content of a lesson. we had learnt about identify learners learning styles. visual learners often prefer to take detailed notes to absorb the information. Visual Learners are learners who learn through seeing. They may think in pictures and learn best from visual displays including diagrams. In addition. we will have our Learning Skills class with Madam Fazlon. Not only that. I had learnt that when I become a teacher. illustrated text books. visual learner also having trouble remembering verbal instructions. flipcharts and hand-outs. For this week. . As for myself. Besides . videos. I am a visual learner. There are three types of learning styles which involves visual. auditory and kinesthetic. overhead transparencies.WEEK 3 As usual. In fact. At the end of this class. on Monday. visual learner also needs an overall view and purpose before beginning a project. They tend to prefer sitting at the front of the classroom to avoid visual obstructions such as people's heads. I have a difficulty in remembering and understand verbal instructions and usually I always have misunderstanding the instructions that had been given to me. there is a stunning variety of learning styles. Not everyone learns the same way. This is important because I need to understand about what is the project all about so that I can be more focus on it. I need to understand and try to have different activities in class so that all of my students will enjoy my class and get input of what I had teaches them. During a lecture or classroom discussion.

I leant that we need to be thankful and grateful with Allah s. In the house. It is an interesting movie. After all the neighbours know about Edward. One day. But he does not say anything about it. they always go to that woman‟s house and met Edward so that Edward can cut their hair with various fashion and I feel so samphaty towards Edward because it‟s seems that Edward had been used by the neighbours. It is about a man that lives with hand that is made by scissors.w. we had been watching Edward Scissors Hand movie. that woman treats Edward like her own family although her husband and her children feel uncomfortable with Edward. a woman came to the castle and found Edmund.t because we had a perfect body with not as a handicap person. His face was so ugly and full with scars. .WEEK 4 In Language Description class. He lives alone in a big castle. She is so kind and brings Edward to her house although se does not know him. Based on this story.

For example. For this week topic. After hear that. Everyone felt so nervous about it. . I am also weak in remembering instructions that had been given me in verbal. we can not do anything about it. the new lecturer entered our class and introduced herself as Madam Fauziaj Binti Hj Abdul Rashid. Finally. I have a good memory in remembering picture or anything that involves with pictures but besides that. the times comes. We were so glad to know her. She also talked about her background and she also tpld us that she was once a student of IPGKPM. we continued our class as usual. We also had been inforemed that the new lecturer will start to teach us this week. After that. it almost same with last week topic. we felt so sad because our class already closes with Madam Fazlon but unfortunately. I need to improve myself and try to overcome my weaknesses so that I can become a better learner next time. As a conclusion. as a visual learner. It is about identifying learner study habits in the contents of strength and weaknesses.WEEK 5 Last week we had been informed by Madam Fazlon that we will have a new lecturer that will come in and teaches us Learning Support class.

we had learned about the design strategies targeting at learning goals. we can find a way to review the information using both of the verbal and visual. For example. This might involve describing what we learned to a friend. it is important to keep practicing what we had learnt in order to maintain the gains that we have achieved. suggests that multitasking can actually make learning less effective. the topics that we learned still the same topic that we learned last week. Some of the learning strategies are one sure-fire way to become a more effective learner is to simply keep learning." Certain pathways in the brain are maintained. based on the studied that had been done. The student will lost even more time as the tasks became . After we knew about our own learning styles. while other are eliminated.WEEK 6 For this week class. Next. After knew what our learning styles. instead of learning only using auditory learning. we learned about the design learning strategies. taking notes or drawing a mind map. we can further strengthening the knowledge in our mind. Actually. When we stopped practicing our new skill or when we learn a new topic. Lastly. This "use-it-or-lose-it" phenomenon involves a brain process known as "pruning. By learning in more than one way. keep practicing and rehearsing it. If you want the new information you just learned to stay put. next. we also need to focus on learning in more than one way. we had learned about the design learning strategies.

. we will learn more slowly so what we had learnt will become less efficient and make more errors.increasingly complex. When we switch from one activity to another.


We use scanning when we want to search for key words or ideas. when I did scanning . In most cases. we know what we are looking for. letters. Scanning involves moving our eyes quickly down the page seeking specific words and phrases. This is because. next. we had been introducing about academic reading text. Use skimming when we want to see if an article may be of interest in our research. Not only that. . For example. Scanning is a technique we often use when looking up a word in the telephone book or dictionary. Skimming is used to quickly identify the main ideas of a text. Skimming is done at a speed three to four times faster than normal reading. instead we are scanning the text. we need to scanning the text. Scanning is also used when we first find a resource to determine whether it will answer our questions. Usually.WEEK 8 For this week. we might go back and skim it. second or next. After we skimming. we will choose the correct types of articles. so we will concentrate on finding a particular answer. we probably not reading it word-by-word. Not only that. I will look for the author‟s use of organ izers such as numbers. This is important for us especially students because we need to make sure when we want to do our work and need to find an article. we also learnt about different types of reading. when we read the newspaper. . we also learnt about the process of reading. We often skim when we have lots of material to read in a limited amount of time. steps or the words. Through this I learnt how to detect or find the main idea. first. sometimes the author will put key ideas also in the margin. the supporting details of a text. Once we have scanned the document. I will also look at the margin.

as the continuous of last week topic. I tried to summarize it and find the main idea and followed by supporting details for each of the paragraph of the article. Usually. I am really glad that I had managed to full fill this task well. But. we need to find the topic sentence and the supporting details each paragraph. I tried my best to apply what I had learnt last week which had made me easier to complete the task. After I read the article. As what I had learnt last week. we had been given an article by Madam Fauziah. the main idea also can be at the last line of the paragraph. I had learnt that. For this task. .WEEK 9 For this week. As a task. As a conclusion. we can get the main idea at the first or second line. each paragraph has its own main idea which is the key point of each paragraph. through this task.

fasting has been linked with preterm labor. Gaining less weight than their doctor recommends may affect their baby‟s chances of being healthy. So. fasting releases ketones into your blood which can cross the placenta and be harmful to the baby. Teen mothe rs should gain 28 to 40 pounds. The body makes up for this drop by releasing fatty acids which can stimulate uterine contractions. I had read an article entitle „Growing a Healthy Baby‟.

If the pregnant woman does not eat enough carbohydrates and fats. they also need to take enough calcium and phosphorus. yogurt and cheese. This is important for energy because the body need to pump blood and carry extra weight of pregnancy.WEEK 11 During the mid-sem break. increase the amount of stress and lessen their ability to cope. . they need to eat carbohydrates and fats. Iron is need for making hemoglobin that carries oxygen to the placenta and tissues. Firstly. Function of calcium is form preventing high blood pressure. the pregnant mother must eat enough of the right foods to meet the body building and energy needs for both her and her baby. Example of calcium and phosphorus are milk. they also should eat iron. The quantity of foods we eat affects the energy needs of our body. What is a balanced diet?

A diagnostic mammogram is done to help confirm a diagnosis of cancer where a lump has already been detected on self-examination or by a doctor‟s exam. But. which cannot be found on breast self-examination. cysts and calcifications but also cancer. certain women are more likely to have breast cancer and should have a mammogram on a regular basis along with the breast self-examination as well as doctor‟s exam. This procedure. screening mammogram is done if the cancer cell could not be identified on breast self-examination or examination by the doctor. To detect cancer in woman. called mammography. A mammogram functions is not only shows tumors. Regularly. with mammogram. Women who are healthy do not need a mammogram until age 40.WEEK 12 This week. helps to get a clear view of the structures inside the breast. I had read an article about mammogram. Yet. it can detect the smallest cancers at a very early and often treatable stage. cancer can be felt by self-examination or examination by our doctor once it becomes large enough. Even the very small tumors or cysts can be seen with a mammogram. . A mammogram is a special breast exam which projects the image of the inner breast tissues onto a film or a digital image.

for this week. it is divided into two which is stage three A. liver. In this disease. Lobular carcinoma is more often found in both breasts than other types of breast cancer. I had read an article entitle „Breast Cancer: Stages and Treatment‟. or brain or tumor has spread locally to the skin and lymph nodes inside the neck. the breast is warm. Breast cancer. While at stage three. the cancer is no larger than 2 centimeters and has not spread outside the breast and at stage two. the cancer is smaller than 5 centimeters and has spread to the lymph nodes under the arm. Breast cancer is a disease in which cancer cells are found in the tissues of the breast. often to the bones. For the last stage.WEEK 13 If last week I read an article about mammogram which functions to detect cancer. Breast cancer can be divided into four stages. near the collarbone. Thirdly. red. At stage one. lungs. . the cancer has spread to other organs of the body. the cancer is between 2 and 5 centimeters. Each breast has 15 to 20 sections called lobes. and swollen. There are three common type of breast cancer. and the lymph nodes are attached to each other or to other structures or the cancer is larger than 5 centimeters and has spread to the lymph nodes under the arm. inflammatory breast cancer. Inflammatory breast cancer is an uncommon type of breast cancer. is a common cancer in women. which have many smaller sections called lobules. Stage three B is when the cancer has spread to tissues near the breast or the cancer has spread to lymph nodes inside the chest wall along the breast bone. It is found in the cells of the ducts and the second type is cancer that begins in the lobes or lobules is called lobular carcinoma. the cancer is no larger than 2 centimeters but has spread to the lymph nodes under the arm . Firstly is ductal cancer. The cancer may or may not have spread to the lymph nodes under the arm or the cancer is larger than 5 centimeters but has not spread to the lymph nodes under the arm. The lobes and lobules are connected by thin tubes called ducts.

chemotherapy or bone marrow transplantation.Breast cancer can be treated through surgery. . radiation therapy.

under fingernails and wrists. we need to rub our hands together strongly. we also must wash our hands for at least 30 seconds in warm water and with soap. Hand hygiene includes washing our hands with soap or applying gels. and areas that look dirty. rinse our hands well. . Last but not least. and your hands lower than your elbows.WEEK 14 I had read an article about „How to Wash Your Hands Properly‟. between our fingers. In order to prevent the spread of germs we should wash our hands often with soap and warm water. In addition. we also had been advised not to touch anything while washing our hands. and germs to run down the drain instead of down our arms. we need to keep our fingertips pointed toward the bottom of the sink. Next. In addition. Staying healthy can be as simple as washing our hands to reduce the number of germs present. But we are not always near a sink and wonder if it is alright to use a hand sanitizer. between fingers. we should scrub all surfaces including backs of hands. I think this article is good because hygiene is the number one thing we can do to stop the spread of germs. The soap lather combined with the scrubbing helps remove germs. Firstly. This position is to allow the soap. water. It is necessity for us to pay special attention to our fingernails.

nose or mouth. If we have a cold. throat. by touching surfaces that are dirty with respiratory droplets that contain the virus also will cause the germs get on our hands. We can spread the germs to other people by touching surfaces such as door knobs and telephones as soon as we are infected with the virus. I had read about cold. and lungs. they get into our body when we touch your face. . When the germs are on our hands. This virus usually spreads from person to person when an infected person coughs or sneezes germs into the air called “droplet spread. Furthermore. eyes. A cold is can be caused by viruses that infect the lining of the nose.” Germs enter the blood stream when the contaminated air is breathed in. For this week.WEEK 15 This is the last week we learnt the subject. sinuses. try to avoid spreading the infection to others usually during the early stages of the infection.
