There are quite a lot of rewards for using short stories in the classroom. The most helpful one is their practical length, which allows the student/ reader to conclude the task of reading in one sitting, or depending on the teachers ' approach. It can be entirely read within one or two class lessons. Short fiction is a valuable and an authentic resource for observing not only language but life itself. As students are always concerned about the amount of work they need to perform and often have the feeling of being overwhelmed, reading short stories seems to be less frightening, for their own definition suggests, they are ‘short’.
Anyone of us will always wish to read a good book that interested them. There are plenty of books that could help our humankind feel relax, happy and enjoy them.“To Kill The Mockingbird," a book that everyone should read once in their life. A book that have interested me and my classmates, the book haven’t finished yet but it produces so many lessons, moral values, and more that have increased the readers attentions. I only read from chapter one to chapter fourteen, but I have feeling like I have gone through half of many people lives. Moreover, after fourteen chapters, the theme of the first half of “To Kill The Mockingbird” is the lost of innocence in childhood and the conflict is about the children versus the adults.
Her use of imagery paints a picture for the readers which ultimately helps to make learning the writing process easier. For example, when she says “the critics would be sitting on my shoulders, commenting like cartoon characters”, this creates a humorous and memorable image of shoulder sized critics (Lamott 469). This step in the process is unusual from what other authors say, yet it’s interesting which engages the reader. Lamott also uses similes and metaphors throughout the essay to explain what it is like for most struggling writers. She states “we all often feel like we are pulling teeth” when it comes to constructing and composing a piece of work (Lamott 468).
I have been staying up late at night just to try and finish turning in all the other stuff while trying to work on my paper. I have finally completed all my sources but I have yet to do the full annotated bibliography but that shouldn’t take too long. This project is really stressful and because we did not have set deadlines I fell too far behind and now I am trying to cram it all in in one week. I have been really stressed out about this whole research project because I need to pass this class for my major and I just don’t know if that’s going to
When I was 14 years old and afraid of practically everything, my music teacher came up to me during class out of the blue and told me, “I am so grateful that a kid like you is in this program.” At the time, I didn’t really understand what he meant, but I held onto the idea that hopefully I would be able to live up to the way he talked about me. Here I am three years later, getting to say all the long hours and hard work I put into our music department helps me not only make myself better, but to better the kids around me who will eventually take my place. And it all started with a little grateful comment. Gratitude is something we all define a little differently, but can have one of the most influential impacts on our lives when used correctly.
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.
However, upon discussing the novel in class, my teacher and other students continuously spoke about how incredible Fitzgerald’s writing is. Consequently, I started to ask myself if my opinion of Fitzgerald’s writing style was wrong, especially because my teacher, with far more experience and authority, was telling me differently. Now after two months of discussing The Great Gatsby, I realize that my opinion has changed: I now find Fitzgerald’s writing style fantastic. This made me wonder how we know our thoughts are our own. This shows that particularly for students we find that a lot of the time teachers tell us what to do or think unintentionally, so it can be hard to distinguish if our thoughts are truly personal or shared with, and from, the others around us.
I do my work almost all the time but I will be honest, I am lazy. If I put my mind to it and stay focused then I will do my work, but sometimes I just forget. For my Spanish it is a continuous rollercoaster with my grades. It goes up and down a lot because that class is hard. But when I take notes and study hard then I get good marks on my classwork and homework.
I truly enjoyed taking the English 1302 class with you, thanks for making this class easy and not stressful. During my High School year, I hated to take English because my grammar is bad, however, this class has allowed me to stress less over my grammar and focus more on my arguments. In addition, every discussion and journal have helped me learned how to think critically when analyzing poems and stories. Thanks for being an attentive professor. Which essay was your strongest?
In progress of work, our member in the group have been study a lot about technology and how it can be used in the real life. This essay have been done very well from each member but sometimes we still have some problem like gave out work late or took a long time to decided who did each view in group elements.
