Recently our class got a chance for an exclusive interview with our writing teacher, Mr. Ezzard. In the interview we asked a series of important questions, mostly geared towards his past experiences and life choices. We were able to get a better understanding of him with the answers we received. We began the interview with a monumental question. We asked "When did you meet your wife and how?"
Artifact #1: What’s My Sentence, Name Card and Self Image My first artifact is my beginning of the year self projects. These were little assignments that helped myself and the class figure out out who I was, who I am and who I will be. One project we did was our Self Image. This was a paper where I had to ask my family and friends who they think I am, and then reflect on what they said about me. This helped me understand who I am in the eye of others.
In the selection, “Strange Tools,” Richard Rodriguez explains how he started reading books to excel academically, as if books were merely a peculiar means of improving himself. He begins his writing by showing the reader his initial experiences with reading. He conveys that neither of his parents read for pleasure, but simply for business or as a way to communicate with distant family; he never saw his parents read an entire book. Rodriguez begins to consider the idea of a “scholarship boy” described by Richard Hoggart. Rodriguez relays how his upbringing shaped the way he approached reading by quoting his mother: “Don’t write in your books so we can sell your books at the end of the year.” He quickly transitions into the difficulties he
In this class, we had a peer revision for our writing process essay. Reviewing their essays was interesting to read other peoples style of writing. I felt very comfortable assisting others writing to improve their rough draft. My classmates addressed my mistakes nicely. I was expecting my peers to criticize my entire essay.
Paul and his friends all went through the class with Kantorek who eventually persuaded them all to enlist where they would go to war together. Peers that Paul knew like Albert Kropp before the war realties to comradeship because they both had to fight alongside with each other. Another way the soldiers showed comradeship was protecting each other during combat. Paul was trapped in a shell hole with enemies shooting low from the trenches, but when he heard his friends he felt safer. "Now I hear muffled voices.
I think this might be the reason why there is an inconsistency in my draft. I delete the statistic part in my essay because it has been pointed out in office hours that it feel like two essay instead of one. Also, I added more lines to explain why I chose silence since my audience might not be clear about that. Making those changes, I think I’m breaking apart from the 5 paragraphs
The students, as one could imagine, went into a full out sigh and had a defensive anger against this new dreadful assignment. As we began reading fairy tales and completing other foundational work on the background to fairy tales, I felt this excitement that I have not felt in many years, it was a feeling that brought be back to my youth. We began with completing a handout using a powerpoint provided by the instructor
The book is worth reading for students and for a class. When I started reading this book I just couldn’t put it down. I thought the book was a masterpiece. Once you start reading the book, you will not be able to put it down! It addresses some of the major themes in our lives such as love and betrayal, rape and father-son relationship.
After I said that I felt very happy. After english was over it was out last class before lunch and it is my worst class ever science. And again before Lisa could introduce me to the science teacher George helped me meet him and then helped me to my seat. Before Lisa could introduce me I was already sitting waiting for class to
"Well, we could, but I feel that would be against what we have been discussing these past few days," Henry had chipped in, due to the previous days of where we went over serious topics in class. "Perhaps we could go into depth with something serious, after all, a lot of the music I 've been listening to recently talks about concepts of life, so perhaps we could go from that?" I had replied. Henry agreed with the idea, but Hunter was still worried that we were going to get a bad grade for it since it covered heavy topics

My teacher really has my fellow classmates and myself ready for reality. She taught us everything we needed to know from the simplest to the most difficult techniques and has us prepared us for college. From the way she would teach us and also the way she treated us was an excellent way to show how the real life of a college student really does face on a daily bases. I’ll leave the class by having the prior knowledge of knowing what and how to write an argumentative essay and know how to simply justify the reading side and confront my face my fierce. This year taught me so much that I use certain techniques to help me in other subjects.
