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.

She really believes that he suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. She did not bring a lunch today because she did not know what the acceptable fashion will be. Whether it be a brown paper bag or a terminal geek gear. This kind of reminds me of my eighth grade English teach. She would take forever to take role because she would lose track or get distracted by the other students.
I had been homeschooled my entire school career, but after a lot of failing tests and crying, my mom decided it would be best if I tried public school. I was not into the idea at all. I thought that those public school kids would destroy me, they knew so much more than I did, (Not true) and had so much more social experience (Also not true). I had been going to church activities for my entire life, and my parents made it a point to sign me up for weekend painting camps, and classes at the rec center. Yet it was nothing compared to the 6+ hours these kids have been at school every day.
The Cunninghams were not the richest people. They would only take what they know they could pay back. The Cunninghams were hit hardest by the depression, because of this, they had little to no money.

Mrs. Caroline doesn't appreciate when the students think on their own and find different methods of doing things ( ).
Once I got home, I dozed off, and I didn’t care to wake up until the next morning. When I woke up in the morning, I had my breakfast, packed up for today, chose the nicest outfit I could find [hey, If I’m about to win an award, why not look nice?] and went to school. I ended up winning the student of the year award. I wished I could of thanked Stevie, but he was probably sad about the whippings he’s going to get once he gets home.
