To some people it is not. Some teachers say that the book is challenging for students. Now, this novel may be difficult for students, but that is how students learn new information. If students weren’t to have read harder pieces of literature all throughout their schooling career, they would stay at the same level of reading for most of their life. The reason why students should read more challenging novels are because they learn new things, and they could also learn how to act in a certain situation based on the type of challenging story they read.
Another debate Shakespeare incensed questions the age and class that Shakespeare should be incorporated in. Throughout years of interpreting the complex texts written by Shakespeare, many believe that Shakespeare expands too much for comprehension, making some students believe these plays are for only people with higher intellect. In truth Shakespeare writes too relatable plays to be passed up to only those Advanced Placement and Honors scholars. The end to this debate may never be seen but through polls, scientific evidence, and effects around the world, learning Shakespeare can seem like a logical answer. High school students, especially the marginalized, should read Shakespeare’s plays to engage the mind, to relate to those plays, and to learn to move through life more effectively.
Ira Dane Pancho Professor Gmelin English 1B 25 April 2016 Hamlet Review Some wish that the language in Shakespeare’s Hamlet and his other works should be updated that way it’s easier to read in print, and for it to also include effects to perhaps make it more appealing to a twenty-first-century audience. While others thinks that nothing can outshine the brilliance of Shakespeare; which ever group you belong, the Franco Zeffirelli’s film version of the play Hamlet might give you the best of both worlds. However, Zeffirelli’s makes changes in some narrative techniques, changes the plot, and changes Hamlet’s actions. The movie felt slow and the chosen actors was both good and bad. Above all, both works of Shakespeares and Franco Zeffirelli still share the same basic story and the same characters.
In spite of the fact that reading a Shakespeare play may not speak to most students, there are actually numerous advantages of reading Romeo and Juliet. Teaching Romeo and Juliet in schools will most certainly be helpful to students. The key advantages associated with the study of Romeo and Juliet consist of; students getting to learn about the way people spoke during Shakespeare’s time, the theme of the play being the ones that students can relate to, and the useful life lessons that can be learned. One advantage of studying Romeo and Juliet is the way Shakespeare composed it, we learn about the way of life he was living in. Where family honor and loyalty to your family were vital, this is shown by the way Romeo and Juliet are forbidden
Though I believe that books contain important topics that can spark discussions of values in classrooms, I agree with Prose that teachers shouldn’t use books as a way to explicitly teach students outside values. I believe that in doing this, teachers are distracting students from the writing’s content and structure. Teachers should teach literature for what it is, not for what values they can loosely connect to it. When I was a freshman in high school, we read The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger. The book centered around a mentally unstable, socially isolated teen named Holden Caulfield.
I certainly agree that Romeo and Juliet is a beautiful work of art and is worth studying. However, the point is that teaching the language of Shakespeare in high school is too early. The ideal goal of English classes is teaching the philosophy embraced within the beautifully orchestrated language. However, in practice, most high school teachers spend too much time translating the Shakespearean language such that the course becomes more of a plot-focused class; there is not enough time to delve into the
Have you ever had that weird situation where you needed to sign something but you didn't know cursive, because it was not taught in your school? Cursive really should be taught in schools, but only to a certain degree. Kids should be taught to read cursive and to write their name in cursive, but not how to completely write in cursive. Cursive is faster and neater than normal printing. Studies show that people who write in cursive have more active brains, than those who do not.
Brian Brett: Informative Speech Review (Autism 1) After I finally looked at my video to prevent any emotions of “jacked up” or “jacked down”, I was able to form clear thoughts about my speech and what I could do to improve it. While my introduction and conclusion were stronger than the rest of my body, they all needed improvement because of not utilizing the cards as taught, among other factors which I will discuss very soon. However, this could be tentative, as I may have done better or worse as per the teacher’s guidelines. As with any class speech or thesis or however it’s presented, my introduction is always the strongest. I gave myself a score of “5”, (Gaining the attention of the audience), “4” (Good overview), “4”, (Credibility), “5”, (Central Idea) for the introduction because they are my strong suit, I am most calm or ready during this portion.
Which Odin got mad because he got it from his mother and gave it to Desi. In my opinion I think the movie O explains more better of the plot then the play because the movie is more realistic and shows good parts that look real and what is really going on but in the play everything looks fake of what they are very hard to understand what they are saying. In movie they use word that they relate to us at school and we understand much better they use modern words. It’s just my opinion I think the movie O is better than the play othello us students understand more what is really going on in the movie it relates to us because we're in high school in the movie O there at a high school and high school may have a lot of drama and it helps us understand the plot
The American free public education system has been and will continue to be an amazing asset for so many of America’s young minds. The ever progressing school system has evolved to fit the modern challenges of the educational world, however, it has fallen short of creating enough opportunities for career-focused education as well as life skills that will be important to life outside the classroom. The current American educational system does not prepare students to be successful adults; by putting an overbearing amount of pressure on attending universities it neglects to provide the routes necessary for students to work towards vocational careers. Prior to reading this essay, there are two terms that must be understood, liberal and vocational education. The term liberal education is defined by 31-year educator Bill Ryan as, “...an approach that encourages a broad and diverse exposure to
