JOURNAL NO.1 My expectations for this subject, Elementary Surveying, are that I would be able to learn everything that is needed in this subject and that I would likewise be able to make use of them in the future. I am also expecting that the professor is kind and understanding, but not in a way that would warrant him spoonfeeding students but instead would really utilize effective teaching methods that would both engage us to do our best and lead us to learning without being overly strict. I expect that the quizzes, activities, and discussions wouldn’t be too hard and would be finished well given enough preparation and study. I expect that taking up Elementary Surveying would inculcate values and knowledge to me and the rest of the class. I expect that the work we’ll do would be fruitful and would form camaraderie alongside the pursuit of knowledge as regards the subject. I expect that before we do our activities, the professor would give us adequate instructions and tips so that we could do them without much ado. JOURNAL NO.2 So far, my expectations in the beginning of the term have been vindicated. Indeed, the activities were done with explanations given by the professor beforehand to ensure that they would be done with minimum delay and errors along the way. The quizzes are relatively easy but are challenging at the same time. Our discussions are by far very informative and help me understand the subject in better ways. Learning isn’t forced, and with the teaching-learning process put forward by both professor and students, lessons taught in classes bring forth the result of total learning. The activities we have done so far have not only helped us learn about Elementary Surveying by being in the field, but have also helped us classmates form stronger bonds and understand what needs to be learned together. JOURNAL NO.3 I hope that everything we learned this term will be with us, all the knowledge we’re taking in would be of use in the future – in the next subjects and come the time we’re full-fledged engineers. I hope that the exams wouldn’t be too difficult, and that with preparation we’ll pass the subject. I hope that our final grades would be sufficient for us to pass Elementary Surveying. I likewise hope that the grades of the projects that we have passed are high because we did our best in making them, and made sure that they would suffice. I also hope that the professor would be considerate in checking our exams.
