Teachers could have students read books that discuss the same thing as Fahrenheit 451 but doesn't use all the bad language and talk. Kassia Micek wrote an article called “Parent Criticizes book ‘Fahrenheit 451’. In the article parents state that this book talks about things students should not be encouraged to discuss in school. Alton Verm, a parent of a child reading the book made comments on the book like “its filled with all kinds of filth and how the words used in the book do not need to be brought out in class.” Verm asks the question, “how can the school punish students for using bad language, yet require them to read a book with bad language and morals in it?”
Without individuality and creativity school is lifeless. Not only does this affect these students, but can also affect the other students by taking away their chance to build social skills and other important life skills. Alix Spiegel uses more examples such as a conversation that took place between a mother and her son. Within this conversation, the mother goes on to tell her son that smart adults talk about books. This was her response to the comment that was made about him and his friends talking about books during recess.

After she begins to make connections with how other people write because again making connections is a crucial part to close reading. She speaks about how the author could have used a first name, last name, an Mrs. That he had a lot of different choices he could of made but decided to merely “reducing her to her role in the family as does the fact that her daughter in law is never called anything but the children’s mother.” (356). Prose then generates another idea from reading the first sentence which is the fact that “the first sentence is a refusal which in very simplicity, emphasizes the force with which the old woman is digging in her
She believes the syllabus provided to students do not include any challenging books, and her belief toward high school teachers becoming too lazy to examine thoroughly if the book the education system provides them with represent any true and significant value is a recurring concern of hers’- therefore ineffective to students. All in all, Prose used ethos, pathos, logos and the usage of specific words to help her argument. She successfully persuades her point of view and makes it clear that if schools want their curriculum to improve, they must change their way of teaching and push their students to view literature in a new

There are a plethora of methods that can be used in order to teach, guide and brainwash children due to the fact that their minds are incredibly malleable. Toni Bambara and David Wallace demonstrate two distinct teaching styles that are beneficial when used on certain groups and detrimental when used against others. In “The Lesson”, a teacher tries to open her students minds to the lives beyond their own and in “Commencement Speech, Kenyon College.” the speaker wants their students to choose the way they think. Both teachers want their students to be able to escape the “rat race” that many people find themselves stuck in, and want to teach their students solely for the betterment of the children
In “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Readers” by Kavitha Rao, she express her opinion on the topic that the current generation is not reading for fun. She mentions several experience she had with other people, that don 't see the benefit in reading for fun. She says that since people aren 't reading more leisure anymore they 're becoming less creative, inarticulate, have poor communication skills and low confidence, which is caused by parents forcing their kids to read, and the education system need to have students memorize textbooks and nothing else. After reading this article I find myself disagreeing with Rao on several points she made, I don’t believe the modern attitude towards reading is causing people to be self absorbed and unimaginative, she also claims that book clubs don 't encourage reading for fun, parents are forcing their children to read boring books which turned them away from reading and that the educational system is to blame for college students for being inarticulate. In the very first paragraph Rao mentions a the conversations she had with two different people, the first person say “I never read fiction” and “After what 's the point of a book if it doesn 't teach you anything.” Another person says “Fiction is not real, no?” and adds “I only like to read real stories to improve myself.” She states that many young people don 't see the benefit in read unless its to help improve themselves, or to ace a job interview.

What is exactly fallacy of ambiguity meaning as many people questions within their mind? In the book called “Thinking Critical Thinking and Logic Skills for Everyday life” by the author Judith A.Boss, the definition of fallacy of ambiguity is an unclear arguments or phrases with various definitions and grammatical structure which it does not support the conclusion. The concept is trying to say that people who has poor communication skills and language many fallacies. For example, Professor Raiff shows a picture and ask if the students can recognize what fallacy it is; one the image is on a teacher who told one of his student, “No, I said summarize the book…”. So, the student basically opens the textbook and flips it around to show the teacher; because of, the communication language is not clear and making sense enough for the student to understand how the teacher wants it to be summarized.
[/ Before Nick does anything, he needs to come up with a big idea which will change a lot. In the book the author states, “Taking a deep breath, Nick began. “Well, the first thing I learned about the english dictionary-” Mrs. Granger interrupted”(23-24). This shows that Nick is brave enough to try to waste time in the class by giving an oral report. Everybody knows Nick is trying to waste time so they are willing to listen to his boring report about the dictionary so that they don’t get homework.
JD’s speech pathologists saw him during the school day for therapy, but were additionally responsible for educating all of his teachers about different accommodations that were needed for him to succeed. Group projects were a reoccurring difficulty in JD’s life. His mother and the speech pathologist made the entire school faculty aware of how damaging it can be to a child’s self-esteem to be left out of a group. I had never thought of this before. JD’s story made me aware that leaving students responsible for forming their own groups has the potential to do more harm than good.

One thing that I stood out to me this week “Ready to write” in the webinkiar was very interested because I wasn’t know that those skills were so important to writing skills and academic success in the later years and they talked about how many percent children are pretending hand motor skills at the school life. My own experience regarding this topic, I don’t have any experience with the another classmate , but I am using the same method with daycare teachers.It is really helpful my child to support the motor skills to connect the dots with letters so he can understand that how to support to his finger. I feel very interested about what I read handwriting because I wasn 't know that crayons is more useful than pencils and I learned that
