It was a gritty emotional book, and it totally fascinated me. Although, I loved this book, sometimes I thought the high school drama they were going through was a little over the top. Some scenes seemed like too much for real life. I love when you finish a book, and you know right away that you’re going to compare the next book you read. The characters jumped off the pages, they were so raw and honest; it was easy to picture them in real life.
“The great Gatsby” portrayed a great deal of pride throughout its story. In almost every page you read, a reader could find character that are showing a sense of pride toward themselves or towards a belief. Toward the end of the book a character named Wilson believed that killing gatsby is the right thing to do (pg.). His pride would lead him to believing that is was true. In conclusion, “The Great Gatsby” while being a book of amazing story and themes.
Though some things that happened in the book were slightly disturbing, I loved Ellen Hopkins’ writing and how she arranged the scenes. I liked how it was written in first person omniscient, alternating between the point of views of Kaleigh and Reanne. It was also really clever for Hopkins to reveal Kaleigh’s dissociative identity disorder at the end of the book, because it really helps the reader get to know both of her identities very well. Overall, Identical was a wonderful novel and everyone who is mature enough should have the chance to read
All books that young adults read have power. Their power results in their ability to sway and to change the reader in so many ways, not the least of these is morally. These books can create a moral sense in the young by demonstrating what is morally right and what is morally wrong. They can raise and resolve ethical issues. The reader may not agree with each resolution, but is certainly forced to think about issues he or she may never have thought about before (Smith 63).
The result of his potent content was a better understanding of the needs of child education. Children needed and still need curious books to keep them focused on learning new ideas. Even though Theodore Geisel has passed, his books are still being read and cherished to this day. They have had a lasting significance on today’s society. He has had a major effect on elementary school education through the fact that he shows children that learning to read and reading itself can be fun.
“He was dead before he hit the ground.” “Dally died a hoodlum. And now he was a dead juvenile delinquent and there wouldn’t be any editorials in his favor. Dally didn’t die a hero.” (Hinton, S. E.) Dally was a boy, who really didn’t care, and who everyone was afraid of. He has never loved anything or anyone. But when Johnny died, the gang knew, that was Dally’s breaking point.
She was not given an opportunity to educate herself and had to work for it herself, unlike other kids who had parents. All she received for food and presents were pea soup and dolls in bad condition. Though she got a book, Hans, her foster father, would pay a big load of cigars for it. Frau Holtzapfel’s two sons would die, leaving just Frau Holtzapfel in the world of the living. From these examples we can see that unfairness has been nailed to the philosophy of the book.
Readers enjoy the content, reread it, and pass it down to friends, family members. Readers love the book so much because it delves into a theme that many readers feel well acquainted with, anti war, but this book takes a completely different path into the
Well, by people, of course! Take Dill harris for example: in Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird Dill portrays perfect examples of key character traits for an enjoyable world. Quick witted, Dill Harris gets into plenty of trouble, for he will not hessitate to lay down a big lie at the drop of a hat, yet sometimes this will help him get out of inevetable spankings. Sopntanious, creative, and loving, Dill lives an enjoyable life to watch and adds much life to Harper Lee's fantastic book. It does not take long to
These were some of my favorite readings so far that we had been required to read through. They were very enlightening and provided many great perspectives and stories from white and minority people alike. The three readings I enjoyed the most are Defining Racism: “Can We Talk?” by Beverly Daniel Tatum, Color-Blind Racism by Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, and Smells Like Racism by Rita Chaudhry Sethi. What I liked about Bonilla-Silva’s piece is the quotes taken from the white privilege. They show a perspective that is sadly so racist and blind to the fact that they, in fact, have privileges non-whites do not.
My evaluation: of Night is that this is a phenomenal book the amount of descriptive imagery and word use in this book was fantastic. This book was very hard for me to take my eyes out of. I was constantly pulled in by cliff hanger like or intense moments. Night by Elie Wiesel is the one of the best books I 've ever pored over. Recommend: Therefore I highly recommend this book for many reasons as a teacher that teaches English it 's a great example of imaginary I felt like I was practically watching a movie.
Our Something from Nothing Unit was designed to help students acquire positive attitudes towards reading and books. Our goal was to make the unit as enjoyable for students as possible, while ensuring they are working towards mastery of the expectations from the Language Arts and Social Studies curriculum. With the goal of student enjoyment in mind, we chose the book Something from Nothing because we found that many students love this story and can relate to, Joseph, the boy whose belongings are wearing out over time. We began the unit by doing a read-aloud. This was to help students understand that written language is meaningful, gain an understanding of text structures, and see what fluid reading looks and sounds like (Bainbridge & Heydon, 2017).
Such as, you don’t have to face things alone, which is shown in the book when Valerie gets support from friends and Dr. Heiler. Also, that bullying can really affect someone, which is also shown in the book because bullying lead to the hate list. Lastly, forgiveness is key when living your life, which is shown throughout the whole book by Valerie because she must overcome the guilt she has. I would rate this book a for sure 10/10. This book is definitely on the list of the top books I have ever read, but my all time favorite book is “The Fault In Our Stars”, and “Hate List” comes very close to it.
For this very reason residents living in Centralia Pennsylvania had forgotten all about the coal mine all together and went on with their lives. With people not being educated about the town’s history and science behind coal and hazards that fall with it. As thousands of lives were endangered when a fire uproared underground the town and many other parts of route 61. Route 61 had to be shut down because the ground was and still is caving in from the blazing flames of
Secondly, the book was up my alley because of its genre. Even if the book is not up someone’s alley, it will work for them because a well written book always entices an inquisitive reader. At last, a reader will become enticed with the book Wild Seed because it is much deeper than we think. The underlying themes will have the reader thinking longer after finishing the
