12. I think people read to enjoy the story, and to increase their vocabulary and grammar skills. Another reason is that people read books as another type of entertainment, it is not “visual entertainment” which it improves your concentration and memory too. Some people read to reduce stress I think since it takes the person into a different place or
Authors can write such strong and passionate texts. It gets people hooked. There’s the books full of action, and the books full of love and romance, but the books that had an effect on me are the Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul books. The only reason on why I started reading these books is because my friends grandma got me Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul Letters for Christmas. It consisted of letters sent in from people who had read the Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul.
As mentioned before, it provides additional context that goes along well with the facts that are given in textbooks. I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my ideas regarding Huck Finn. Before reading this book, I thought it would be boring. I was surprised to find that I not only enjoyed the book, but also learned more about what was going on during this time period. I strongly urge you to continue allowing high school students to read and analyze this book during the sophomore year to align with the textbooks and
Then When his teacher said you need to read to be educated , he started reading books above his matching .

Along with in the text it also says “In fourth grade I embarked upon a grandiose reading program.
I really enjoyed the way this book was written, it was written in a way that Native Americans have been known to teach each other. They pass their knowledge down to their children through their stories. It was like sitting down with a grandparent and hearing their story of the war. I first picked this book up because the Navaho Indians were mentioned in my AP History class, but because of the time frame we had before the test was taken they were only briefly mentioned. This book grabbed my attention because of the topic and that the main characters point of view didn’t just start with the war it explained his background and why he is the type of person he became.
My experience as a reader isn 't as extraordinary as many, but I love to read. I had some great teachers throughout my education that taught me to enjoy reading challenge oneself and not be intimidated by it. Through college and today I do not have much time to read, other than school books speech, education ,and reading. Those are the sweet books I know read. Beside all those school books I now read, I use to read books about life, and history I also lloved mystery books the ones that make one wonder and keep you guessing till the end.
This is when I learned that reading was fun and understood why my classmates would check out 2 chapters books in the library. Just like reading, I found writing in a different language amazing. From a small age, I automatically knew how to read and write in Spanish, it was weird to my parents because they never taught me. Therefore, when I learned how to spell and write in English I felt powerful. Not because I knew to do this skill in two different languages, but because I was going to be able to do my homework in English and share what I had written in my “weekend journal” to the class.

In the beginning of the story santiago is merely just a shepard that can read but, throughout the book he learns how to understand the language of the world. “‘I didn't know shepherds knew how to read,’... ‘How did you learn to read?’ the girl asked at one point. ‘Like everybody learns,’ he said. ‘In school.’” “‘I am learning the Language of the World, and everything in the world is beginning to make sense to me… even the flight of the hawks,’ he said to himself” In the first piece of evidence the reader can only see that he is relatively smart because he knows how to read and is a shepard. But as the story continues santiago also grows and comes of age to a point at which he starts to learn and understand the language of the world.
I enjoyed this story because it taught me more about Roberto Clemente, although it was depressing to watch people open up about their dead friend. The third story was a Dr. Seuss book I had read called Oh, The Places You’ll Go! The story is about the author telling the readers about the journeys they will travel to, but on a level pre-schoolers could understand. The message of the story is you will become older and have to make decisions, and there is hope you will make the right decisions and go to far places.

With waiting for the ball to drop, there was a new energy within the classroom. I had two other students ask to read the play instead of Invisible Man, and since I let Helena, I couldn’t deny them. The papers would be interesting to grade next week. “Okay kids, I know most of you have about finished Invisible Man and Raisin. So can anyone explain what a climax is and apply it to one of the books?” In comparison to before, the number of hands was a pleasant surprise.
