Michael Nugent SID: 108948006 Section 0107 Mondays 11 a.m. March 29, 2008 Journal #1 1) The activity I would consider myself to be “skillful” at is playing soccer. There are several factors that contribute to being a skillful soccer player. First, shooting a soccer ball requires one to be able to balance on their planted foot while the entire body is putting energy into striking the ball with a great amount of force. Fortunately, I seem to have very good balance. Balance is developed most when we first start walking as infants, but is mastered later. This is a gross motor skill that is an extremely important part of being an effective soccer player. Furthermore, having good foot-eye coordination may be one of the most important characteristics of being a skilled soccer player. Obviously it helps to be able to hit the ball with your foot when it is on the ground, but a more skillful soccer player will apply his advanced foot-eye coordination in a more complex situation, such as kicking a ball while it is in mid-air and making solid contact with it.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
