The most valuable thing that I learned by reading this is that Lizzie “took one for the team”. This is because at first everything pointed towards Lizzie killing the Bordens with a hatchet but once I finished reading the book it proved to me that Lizzie just did it to be a good person. This book could be recommended to anyone who is past the age of 16 because it has wording that younger people could not understand. Not only that but the story itself is about a gruesome killing and that wouldn 't be a good fit for someone who was young. Although I say I would recommend this book to anyone over 16, I really would recommend this book to anyone who is willing to read it because it is very entertaining and it keeps the reader wondering
It was self-explanatory at first when determining what was needed, but initially I had issues in finding the articles due to the limited nature of the topic. What were more available were books, and with I looked at the author’s background and what validity they posed to the research being conducted. One of the biggest things I was looking for, was relevancy. It had to be relevant and fit my criteria in terms of what I needed for my research. What seemed to be the easiest part was the outline to help my assignment.
He ended up creating a very persuasive letter, one that effectively uses ethos in establishing his character, logos in providing reason and logic, and pathos in reaching human emotions. To use the appeal of ethos, a writer is responsible for establishing common ground with their readers. One way a writer can establish common ground with their readers is to prove their credibility by naming their credentials. This will help a writer be seen as an authority figure because it tells their readers they have experience in the subject. However, a successful writer must remember not to take their authority for
Harry thinks this book is too shabby to use, but when he sees the direction people wrote on the book, he changes his mind. “His annoyance with the previous owner vanishing on the spot, Harry now squinted at the next line of instructions” (Rowling 180). When Harry knows the benefits this book can brought to him like he can be the best person in Potions class, he wants to keep this book. “There sat the Prince’s copy, disguised as a new book, and there sat the fresh copy from Flourish and Blotts, looking thoroughly second-hand”
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. According to Rao the “modern attitude
My freshman year continued with much confusion. The only reading that I was doing then was just reading Fanfiction, but those stories are just written by kids like me, with the same english skills as me. I found it extremely entertaining, but nothing about it was making me a better reader. I just needed to read more books that would challenge me. Reading is not my favorite activity.
We finally came to a solution and an outcome. Consequently, the outcome would be that for every illegally published book, Ace books would pay royalty for that(Carpenter 229). This was a very good way to end this topic, but I still did not end up profiting from this. During all of this, I lost a ton of precious writing time(Carpenter 227). I was happy with the Ace Books outcome, but the time wasted I was definitely not.
This book is chosen for self-reflection because I used to think that being confident is only based on our thinking in our mind and want to know if there are some concrete ways to improve it. After reading this book, I found them are quite useful and would like to take it for reference to improve my weaknesses in order to achieve my personal goals. In the following, I would start with the personal development plan which divided into four parts, including the summary of the book, evaluation of my strengths and weaknesses, limitation of achieving personal goals and
This semester I read the books con academy and partially through touching spirit bear. This was an insane to see myself even do that I have not read a single book since the 5th grade. My goal was to read 2 books this semester, I thought that it would be hard but not impossible. Turns out it was harder than I thought it would be, I barely got through one. Reading is a fun experience but a really hard one to focus on.
Biographical Criticism is an approach "begins with the simple but central insight that literature is written by actual people and that understanding an author 's life can help readers more thoroughly comprehend the work." Hence, it often affords a practical method by which readers can better understand a text. However, a biographical critic must be careful not to take the biographical facts of writer 's life too far in criticizing the works of that writer: the biographical critic "focuses on explicating the literary work by using the insight provided by knowledge of the author 's life.... Biographical data should amplify the meaning of the text, not drown it out with irrelevant material." The main difference
I think that the author did a great job using the first page to show the reader what is going on in the book, and to read on to find out what will happen next in the book. A way that he didn’t introduce well is the characters. He did not explain in detail what the characters look like, or how they act, or how they deal with conflict and other things. Like on page 1 where he
That fact continues to drive me to read until I find that one book that succeeds in doing that. A book that can not only get me interested, but make me wish it didn’t end as well. Some people hate reading, others love it immensely. I am right in the middle. When I read I am not stressed by things here, for I feel like I am somewhere else.
But honestly it is so boring. I am not really feeling anything in my heart, soul or spirit while I 'm reading it except that I really want to stop reading it. I understand why it is such a loved book and why Capote is such an amazing author, because he really is. I am glad that I have to do these blog posts because it is giving me time to really analyze the text and appreciate things that I would not have originally appreciated. Especially his similes.
Once we step outside our comfort zone, we are able to let our true character evolve. Author Ralpho Waldo Emerson once said, "Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow." Emerson is completely right when saying this. The only way we can become a well balanced person is to do these things that we are not used to. Although it might be hard sometimes to accomplish these things, the effort that you put forth speaks more than the result.
The “growth mindset” is the attitude that challenges need not be faced with dread, but instead, with a desire to learn from failure. In her book, Mindset, Dr. Dweck discusses the long-term benefits of the growth mindset and discourages approaching challenges with a fixed mindset, the attitude that an infallible identity is much more important than learning. Though many individuals with the fixed mindset remain skeptical about the existence of the growth mindset, the growth mindset does exist and can easily be differentiated from the fixed mindset. In fact, Dr. Dweck conducted lengthy research that demonstrates not only the existence of the growth mindset, but also the effectiveness of this mindset. The freshmen at the University of Hong Kong exemplify the existence of the growth mindset.
