However, I would remember all the trouble that reading brought me. I started taking small steps towards recovery: I deleted the e-book library from my computer, I threw away my library card, and I avoided all contact with books. Through self-control and encouragement from my family and friends, I broke the
The reasons why Mrs. Gruwell find the book “The Diary of Anne Frank” which belief that have an instant connection to her students. Since Ms. Campbell not allowed to give the books, it made Mrs. Gruwell have taken two part-time jobs to buy for her
Lastly, the author states, “Many were left ignorant of how to apply arithmetic in day-to-day life”( Rapple, B., 2017, 195). Teachers and school focused so much on learning what the students needed for the standardized test that they forgot to teach the students about everyday life. Therefore, schools are criticised because of standardized testing, a competition for all
Actually, learning more about the author makes it easier to understand the character. Salinger changed school once due his friendship problems and once due flunking too many subjects. Holden was expelled due flunking and had problem doing friends.
real final copy The Hunger Games banned Lately, I’ve been reading a very popular book that has swept the nation, The Hunger Games written by Suzanne Collins. I’ve read the book before, although now I have read it again to investigate why such a popular book would be banned from school libraries all over our country. Banning books now days have been a very big issue in my opinion because libraries are banning the best books ever made for tiny little problems. This is causing kids to miss out on great books that they may not have enough money to buy, so school is the only place they can get books.
Censorship Censorship in schools may not be the best choice for enriching the future minds of the United States of America. Children of the United States of America should have the right to learn about anything for it is there amended right. Taking knowledge away from them and censoring it should not be the answer to keeping our Children pure it should be what we teach our kids. We need to teach them right and wrong that is what will keep our child’s mind pure. Many books are being taken off shelves every day in student libraries because a couple people do not think that the book is suitable for children.
At that time my math teacher was Mr. Hack, and he was very straight forward in his teaching, but I was stupid, and I neglected and missed the fundamentals of basic algebra. This affected me the whole year and because I have a lazy personality, I didn't put the effort in understanding and understand what I have neglected. Due to this, I did so atrocious that I had to retake an algebra course over the summer. I decided I must step up my game because it’s not worth it to me and I had to prove myself that I can do this. Thankfully after all my hard work and devotion I finished the summer course with a percentage of
Homework helpful or harmful Is Homework Helpful or Harmful? This question that many parents and students ask themselves every day. Many students complain about the amount of homework that is given to them.1 As many children as eleven-year-old Stevie Naeyaert in the research done by Alexa Stevenson, children suggest they don’t have enough socialization time. Have you ever been frustrated with homework, and not having enough socialization time? Many students believe too much homework blocks their social life.2
These are critical criticisms of homework, however, they fail to see the negatives are only caused by unnecessary amounts of homework and also fail to realize the major benefits homework offers to students. Homework has been apart of our society and our school system for countless decades,
Book Banning I think that the root problem with the book banning/burning was the level of maturity in the certain individuals affected. Both of these books were not made for children. I think the people in charge that banned Mr Vonnegurt’s book could have done better with their solution and the people at the Biloxi school came up with an adequate solution to the problem. An example is the book by Kurt Vonnegut, but they were still taught in the classroom.
You had to get a certain amount of points to get a good grade in the class. This system was supposed to be a way to encourage us beginning middle school students to read, we were supposed to be excited about competing against each other and about the (pointless) rewards, but the opposite is what actually happened. No, we didn’t all band together and stage a revolt, but it made virtually all of us turn against reading and everything it stood for. It was stressful, and, to me at least, was the most horrible thing a teacher had ever asked me to do.
I remember back in 2nd grade, where the school system required all kids to test on books they’ve completed in the current week. I struggled to finish these assignments due to the fact of my hatred for reading. The quizzes challenged my abilities as well as my patience. I found myself constantly cramming
Coming to College Composition I considered myself to be a weak writer. I was not able to elaborate on my ideas, complete my sentences, and I was grammatically incorrect. Being such a poor writer made it difficult to write because I would always expect a terrible grade. The first week of class consisted of writing exercises which helped with the small things such as, grammar, punctuation, and coherent writing. After the building week I felt myself become much more encouraged to write and complete my essays to my full potential because I had a few more tips to make the paper better.
