Twain once quoted, “A mans character may be learned from the adjectives which he habitually uses in conversation” (“Mark Twain Quotes”). He found that this was a way he could captivate a younger audience and make his stories more appealing to this generation. Twain uses his own story and tales of his youth as a way to captivate young and old readers, alike. Mark Twain’s life as a young boy influenced his books. Throughout his books, the reader will learn about his life because he allows it to become a part of his stories.
When I got to elementary school I loved reading some of my favorites from Kindergarten were Chrysanthemum, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, and 101 Dalmatians. These were books read to me or books that I didn’t know how to read yet and just flipped through the pages. I enjoyed these stories though because
Why I Enjoy Writing Since I began writing formally in the first grade, I have had a variety of teachers who have impacted my love or my distaste for writing at any given time. Writing comes naturally to me, and I enjoy it. As a small child, I would spontaneously write little poems and copy stories from books just for fun. Now as a student in a formal academic environment, I still prefer writing on a topic that I am personally invested in, or in which I have a deep knowledge.

Of Integrity, Trust, and, Acceptance Stories, novels, and poems, often act as more than just an entertaining jumble of words, flavored with a pinch of drama and dash of humor, they often carry important life lessons that we can learn from. We can find such life lessons in the various pieces of literature that we have read throughout the school year.

Looking through the eyes of Reuven Malter in The Chosen by Chaim Potok, we learn the virtue of acceptance when he befriends Danny Saunders. Finally, in the humorous yet sobering Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare, we learn of the importance of trust, when the lack of
There are quite a lot of rewards for using short stories in the classroom. The most helpful one is their practical length, which allows the student/ reader to conclude the task of reading in one sitting, or depending on the teachers ' approach. It can be entirely read within one or two class lessons. Short fiction is a valuable and an authentic resource for observing not only language but life itself.

As the teacher librarian is the coordinator of reading materials, I will choose the suitable level books for the ‘Morning Reading Scheme’ and put them into the different classroom. For example, I will choose some cloth books for some students who need more sensory stimulation. On the other hand, I will choose some newspaper, which topics are related to the year topic of moral and civic education in our school, for the higher ability students reading.

From this term, it gives the meaning of one may teach but one cannot be sure of whether the students will learn what he wants them to learn. A person can be drawn to the profession of teaching for various reasons and one of it is their love for teaching. For those teachers who enjoy being at school, it is often the life of a teacher that has appeal towards them as said by George Brown (1975). John Barth, novelist and English professor, wrote eloquently of his love of the teaching life : “There is a chalkdust on the sleeve of my soul.

This essay discusses the criteria for choosing children’s/young adult literature to be used in the English classroom. My starting point will be to explain what a picture book is and ----I will start to give a definition of picture books and Then, I will write about important factors to consider when searching for literature that makes reading enjoyable and meaningful and has a beneficial effect on learning English. My focus will be on literature for the younger pupils in school (1-4. ), because I have most of my teaching experience there and therefore it is easier to relate to the age and give examples. Picture books are books written for native speakers and an excellent way to use in Norwegian classrooms for language learning.

And they flew… -Guillaume Apollinaire, French poet *** My classroom reading experiences had developed tremendously throughout my high school years.
