My class got its reputation because of two hyperactive, mischievous students. Most teachers come to our class braced for trouble from the infamous two and no lesson goes on without interruptions from these two pranksters.
Topping the list is Dinesh who is an incorrigible chatterbox. A boy too small for his age, Dinesh has broken almost every rule in school. Despite repeated warnings and threats of suspension and expulsion from school, Dinesh has yet to change over a new leaf. He is always in the habit of throwing live cockroaches and spiders at girls who would then scream in terror. The other mischievous brat is Jerry whose favorite pastime is mimicking teachers. When it comes to playing tricks, both of them are hand in glove with each other. Whenever they get together, we know they are up to some mischief.
However my class is not without distinction. Susan scored straight As in both her preliminary and final examinations. A petite girl wearing thick glasses and having a thick fringe, she is nicknamed 'Miss Einstein' and 'Walking Encyclopedia' as she has all the answers and facts at her finger tips. She is a real bookworm and is the pet of most teachers. The pranks of Dinesh and Jerry always incurs her wrath. She is always at her wit's end trying to instil some discipline in them.
These are some of the interesting characters in my class. Without them, my class just would not be the same. I am glad I am in this class. Although we are an incorrigible lot and can be quite exasperating at times, we have lots of fun. Just as the saying goes, 'it takes all sorts to make a world', our class would not be half as lively and enjoyable if not for these interesting characters. Since this is our last year of school, I consider myself fortunate to have had the opportunity of making each of their acquaintance.

Well a learning style is the way a person tends to learn best. It involves your preferred method of taking in, organizing, and making sense of information, Lake Washington Institute of Technology (2012). Some people prefer to learn by doing and touching, others prefer to learn by seeing, or by hearing the information. Still others learn using more than one learning style. If a person was interested in finding out what their particular learning style is would be to take the VARK questionnaire for learning styles. The most common learning style is the multimodal, but the learner can switch from one type of learning style to another depending on what the subject is being learned and or their mood, Fleming (2011). After taking the VARK questionnaire, Multimodal learning styles was assessed as the learning style of choice. The multimodal learning environments allow instructional elements to be presented in more than one sensory mode (visual, aural, written, and kinesthetic), Sankey, Birch & Gardiner (2010). In this particular case visual and kinesthetic were the dominate methods of learning. Strategies of learning that this person uses are highlighting and underlining notes, grouping subjects together with a certain color highlighter, use of charts, graphs and images to help them learn the...
