The reason why students should read more challenging novels are because they learn new things, and they could also learn how to act in a certain situation based on the type of challenging story they read. Many people also feel that this book is irrelevant to student’s lives. However, kids should learn what life would be like for kids at their age in a different time period. Like what was stated before, in a history class, when we learn about the history, we learn about the straight facts, not as much of the personal lives of people living in that time. Since the novel is showing the personal recollections of one boy in the time period, students can identify the similarities between the two lessons.
The Summer Bridge writing course was not like expected at all. I expected it to be a brief review of what we learned in high school and then we have the posttest. I was wrong in fact; it was not only a review of what we learned in high school but it was also introduction into what college writing classes would be like. This of course surprised me and I did have some difficulty in the beginning of the course, but overtime I became better day by day. Constant writing, proofreading and a little bit of constructive criticism is what I expected from this course.
By examining the argument titled The Importance of Writing Badly by Bruce Ballenger in the book 21 Genres there is evidence of each rhetorical feature as he discusses the methods of writing that created the best outcomes. Ballenger uses Ethos, Pathos, and Logos to prove the effectiveness of his argument about the way we are taught to write within our educational system. Ballenger begins by talking about his experiences as a young writer in grade school. He was ridiculed for writing badly, particularly for making his essays “awkward” according to his teacher, Mrs. O’Neill. He often felt under pressure to write the perfect sentence with the perfect words and phrases making his writing unsuccessful in his teachers eyes.
As of today, most of all the students don’t give much attention on values courses which is in fact can help them mentally in dealing on their major courses. This research aims to explain how values courses are being set aside and why Khalil Gibran 's book "The Prophet” can help ignite the interest of the students towards values education. The researchers sought to answer these questions as we plan to conduct the research: • Why does Khalil Gibran’s book, “The Prophet” be used as a mode to teach values in college? • What makes the book effective in imposing such values? • How can “The Prophet” contribute to values formation?
When students were in the developmental education, they usually take math and English class, so they do not have chance to prepare the major courses in the beginning of their college life, and it causes that students may not get success in their major because they do not have enough knowledge about their major. On the other hand, developmental courses are not hard enough for students who want to take major courses in college because math and English are very easy to handle, and students have enough time to deal with these two class. However, after they start to take the major courses, they may have to deal with four different classes. Therefore when students get used to study two classes, they are very hard to handle four classes at the same time. For example, I took developmental courses before I took my major courses.
Taking different English and writing classes has allowed me to write different types of papers. One paper that can be very challenging is the personal narrative. There are certain requirements that you must follow; each paper is different depending on who assigns it. When I am assigned to write this type of paper, usually it is dreadful to start and accomplish. This type of paper should just be removed from college writing courses.
Being inspired by another person's work can help and guide you to build your own ideas, but simply taking their work and claiming it as yours is not permitted. The third and last point Gladwell brought up about plagiarism is that writers evolve as time continues and from that, they must have some point of inspiration when writing. Writing can almost be impossible to create a piece that is original or using words that have not been used before which in turn makes it hard for people to not use others work as a foundation for what they are trying to bring to the reader. Plagiarism is a topic in all schools that are discussed among students that it is never all right to use someone else’s work as your own. It sounds simple enough but, it can be hard to write on a topic that is an original piece.
This paper target is to go thru the experience of authentic texts used in a lesson for a class from the Level OMA1 and as the practice has tell us not every lesson can be a home run and not every class can be a perfect experience, However, for instructors and students alike there are a few points on the methodology in order to improve and personalize the teaching and make the learning as efficient as possible crucial for the improvement of the development of the learning of the second language. Probably the most important accomplishment is motivating students to want to contribute and be involved in the classroom using a variety of the necessary language skills and thereby increasing their English ability over the time. The Class. Equally important is to mention the level of the class and for this purpose is
Based on the study done by Husna, Zainil and Rozimela (2013) the students often found some difficulties in writing a descriptive text, although they have been guided by their teachers to write it. Some difficulties are as follows: First, students are not able to develop the ideas; some students wrote many main ideas in one paragraph; the idea of the paragraph was still ambiguous and sometimes not clear. Second, students found it difficult in organizing the ideas to write a descriptive text. Most of the times, the paragraph needs more than a unified point. It means that a paragraph needs a reasonable organization or sequence.
Most school students have the feeling that what they study is not going to benefit them in real life. They memorize what is in the text books and forget it all once they are done with their finals. Problem here is: students don’t feel that our curriculum is relatable to the real life. This matter became educators’ issue nowadays. Curriculum is subjects comprising a course of study in a school or college.
