In my AP classes I learn most of the material on my own by reading textbooks or articles. Reading a large amount every night was a requirement to even come close to succeeding in these classes. Due to the quantity of material I was forced to read, I, unfortunately, found myself mesmerized on the amount of pages I had to consume rather than the content of what I was reading. Therefore, it led me to skimming and not reading as thoroughly as I should have. As I’ve gotten older literary information has been continuously shoved at me, causing reading to become a chore instead of an opportunity to be transported into an adventure like spending the day with The Cat in the Hat when I was younger.
Off with the summary, the first thing to express is that the storyline is dificult to understand, because the book switches from character to character every chapter. When I read it at first I had just seen this book as a simple one, but as I continued reading I became amazed with the development of the characters, this book becoming one of my favourites from that point of view. The book 's theme is mystery often leaving the reader with unanswered questions, which will be revealed at the end of the book.
In conclusion I recommend this outrageous piece of literature you call “If I Stay”. I recommend it to the romantic kind of type, to the what 's going to happen next kind of type, but especially to the I need a book to read kind of type. I didn’t feel like reading that day in my reading class so I just grabbed a random book and nearly fell in love with it. This book may change things in your life or it may just change at the very end. “If I Stay” is just the beginning of this
Only I know what I enjoy to read and will not put me to sleep. When we got to pick what I wanted to read about and write the paper on. I could really get focused into the book and paper because it interested me. Now only a couple of papers interest me and keep me attuned to the book. The ECA had me read a boring story then write a paper about it, and that was a struggle for me because the story was beginning to bore me to death.
Mumbling the words I 'm not sure how to pronounce. Reading quietly so no one can hear me fumble my words was how I read when called on to read in class. However due to being forced to read To Kill a Mockingbird, Fahrenheit 451, Dante 's Inferno, and the Odyssey in a short period of time taught me to read at an average high school pace. My reading times became shorter while the pages grew in number. The idea of reading aloud will forever strike fear into my bones, but I have regained enough confidence to make it through the
I love to read about many different things that I haven 't heard of before. It helps me better understand myself and learn about stuff that not many people may know about. When I am writing an essay, I just let my words flow through. I make sure to write whatever comes to mind just so that I can release all my thoughts and ideas before editing my work. When doing this, I feel like a weight has been lifted because then I don 't have to struggle to remember all my thoughts and ideas since I 've already written
At first glance one can’t imagine comparing both art pieces, however after a deeper research one is able to find a similarities between both of them. Comparing or contrasting books is never easy but within every book there 's something books can compare, it could be the reason of why the book was written, or even something deeper. but at the end the only thing to do is wait for someone to find more.
One other thing you should know is that Ms. Aleshin expects you to read a lot of books and you have to be prepared to read everyday. One genre I urge you to read is dystopian fiction. At first I was confused as to what it was, but I ended up loving it and reading many dystopian books. An example of this genre would be Unwind, this book is dystopian and if she doesn 't introduce this to you, then remember to check this book out. Reading also helps you improve on your Ela skills, so it will never be
Defining myself as an individual among my peers presented as a struggle throughout my childhood. While misconstrued, I believed that being individual meant subsisting separately from other people. Accepting my faults, while difficult, required me to challenge this archaic way of thinking. This task was achieved by reading numerous books regarding others struggles and the ways in which people develop solutions to dilemmas they face. A valued characteristic of mine, curiosity, sparked from a fascination in books as well as the ways they bring people together.
It is all based on opinions and relations to what the person is reading. One thing for me is interest. If I am not interested in the topic I will not be able to connect with the writing. Although the piece of writing may be good, I will not be fully concentrated on reading it. It is not like this for every situation though.
First of all, when students are looking for their classes on their own it becomes tough to find an adequate class or instructor/teacher for them. Every teacher has his/her own way to teach and that’s what makes the difference or interest of students to learn in an appropriate way. One topic I want to bring on is about the textbook (Everything is an Argument) as a student it comes to a point where you hope to do a great use of what we put in when we get enrolled in college. For example, some teachers required students to buy an expensive book from the bookstore just because it goes with the class. Some students actually buy those books for their classes, some students rent them from the bookstore and other students get them from online retailers, which is less expensive.
Foreshadowing in this book is very common and could even be considered one of Ursula LeGuin’s main techniques when employing her writing style. An example of her foreshadowing is when the speaker is forewarning something that happens in the future of Ged’s life. “But the truth of this guess he did not learn until, years later, the quest of the Ring of Erreth-Akbe… and to the Tombs of Atuan”(168). What’s happening is Ged had a quick encounter with a couple of people, but doesn’t get to learn much about them until future books, namely, the one called The Tombs of Atuan. This example of foreshadowing is very obvious because the speaker blatantly tells us something will happen in the future, we just don’t know what that is.
Many of us may wonder, “Why we are reading primary texts rather than reading about these stories in a textbook or a journal?” A reader cannot get the whole story from just reading the story from a textbook or journal. In order to really get all of the details and first person perspective, it is nice to be able to read the primary texts. While reading primary texts we find many examples that show personal experience, give more details that are relevant to current events are explained, and explain how complex ideas can apply to different groups. When we read the primary texts, we can get the feel of personal experience and are able to read the story from the first person perspective. In Black Like Me, we read a lot about the experiences of the
Now, I enjoy reading, but not as much as I used to. I have to be in the mood for reading and finding a book to read for fun, and not for class, is a difficult task. On the occasions that I do read, I listen to music. Most people would be distracted by this, but it helps me concentrate for some strange reason. When I begin reading the book I’m
For many people, reading is a necessity: they read directions, tests, and labels. For other people reading is a joy: for me, however, reading has been very difficult. “The more that you read, the more things you would know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go,” wrote Dr. Seuss I Can Read with My Eyes Shut. My past reading experiences have set me back as an adult.
