When administrating the Reading Interest Inventory (Mariotti, n.d.), the Motivations to Read Profile Survey and asking the Conversational Survey Questions (Pitcher, et al., 2007), it gave insight to how Hailey felt about herself as a learner. The questions that stood out in my mind, is how I can help Hailey to be more success in the classroom as well as become a stronger reader overtime? I would like to look more in depth in Hailey’s comprehension skills and provide her educational strategies that will help Hailey to grow in her reading comprehension and give her some tools to help herself when she is having trouble. I am interested to see how Hailey reads orally, and to check her reading accuracy and fluency. Are these areas that are impacting Hailey as a learner as well? Is her oral reading and fluency areas that are impacting her ability to comprehend a text? Is she stopping to attack an unknown word and having a tough time remember what she just read? Does she understand new vocabulary words and the context around the words?

Tenessee Williams is one of the most outstanding playwrights in American Theatre. His play The Glass Menagerie premiered in Chicago in 1944 and was an instant hit. It is set in the days of the Great Depression of 1930s when unemployment, inflation and shortage of necessary things had made the lives of people all over the world miserable. The playwright has sought to evaluate this era that caused financial as well as emotional trauma through depiction of the plight of a middle class family living in St. Louis, Missouri. The play deals with the memories of Tom Wingfield, an officer in the Merchant Navy, who had deserted his poor mother, Amanda, and disabled sister, Laura, in order to pursue a life of adventure but suffers from acute remorse due to his realisation of what his helpless family must have gone through in his absence. The objective of this paper is to study the reasons of Tom’s abandonment of his family and his perpetual anguish as its result.

It had been 10 years since Sanaa Abdulkarim and her family immigrated from the Middle East to the small urban city of Boise, Idaho. Sanaa had adjusted to her life fairly well. She got good grades, was kind to everyone, and made plenty of friends at her school. On June 21, 2017, however, she wasn’t thinking about school. It was summer break and she and her brother, Mohammed, were enjoying the hot day inside. It was around 4 o’clock when Mohammed had to take the trash out. While doing so, their neighbor yelled purposely within earshot of the young boy, “F*** immigrants.” Although shaken up by the event, Sanaa and her brother took no action towards the disrespectful neighbor; in fact, they forgave him. The Abdulkarims practice the religion of
The goals center around meeting developmental milestones associated with the age group. We want all children to meet these goals and even surpass them. To facilitate this we will be working individually, in small groups, and in large groups. Our curriculum will follow themes for each month that associate with each goal given. The goals will be assessed every 3 months to ensure the children’s progress as well as make changes in curriculum where they are needed. Evaluations will be given along with the curriculum to do the assessments. For literacy skills we will start to work on sentences, talking to the children as much as we can and modeling appropriate examples of work formation and how to piece sentences together. We will facilitate their social and emotional development through partner work and small/large group activities. We will focus on working together, respecting others, and being responsible for our actions. This will also help with their problem solving skills, we will do this through partner work as well. Giving two children a task such as separating objects or a large floor puzzle will allow the children to work together. The curriculum will have an equal focus on family, safety, and support. Many lessons can be taught using examples of children’s families, life style, and individual selves. Getting to know the children and take an interest is a vital part of the curriculum
