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. Many people also feel that this book is irrelevant to student’s lives. However, kids should learn what life would be like for kids at their age in a different time period. Like what was stated before, in a history class, when we learn about the history, we learn about the straight facts, not as much of the personal lives of people living in that time. Since the novel is showing the personal recollections of one boy in the time period, students can identify the similarities between the two lessons.
The environment from home and his mother exerted a strong influence on Carol’s cognitive development. For example, the teachers reported that Carol was unable to have social play with his peers when she was in school. She showed a lot of aggression such as hitting and kicking, when things didn’t go her way. This “disruptive behaviour disorder” shows Carol was experiencing problems. Bronfenbrenner described it as “mirror image” which operates at interpersonal to international levels (Bronfenbrenner, 1961).
This made me frown. Just from its sound, you can get an idea of what you are in when you set yourself to read the book. Clearly, this novel is for young people, so I tried to assess it in that perspective. I became nostalgic upon reading the second sentence in the first chapter where the teacher's chalked squeaked like a tortured soul. I shuddered and cringed because that scene brought back memories of my high school days where chalks played a significant source of hardships for me.
Lenina let us know how she felt in every part of her writing. On her diary you will see expressions like “I don’t feel complete and I feel like I am missing something” or “I felt like I am judged by them”, this represent a simple vocabulary for an easy understanding to teenagers, with words like “Family” and “Crazy”. Using this simple phrases I hope to trap my audience attention so they will want to read the book and be more interested in other ways to imagine different realities of life. I related this task with social relationship especially with love. For me, using a diary was the best way to express how people feel about their life and themselves, since they wrote every day their feelings.
““Do you always think this much, Charlie?” “Is that bad?”…“Not necessarily. It’s just that sometimes people use thought to not participate in life.” “Is that bad?” “Yes.” ”(Stephen Chbosky, 16) In the novel, The Perks of Being a Wallflower the author discusses human’s discomfort with their true selves around others especially when challenging societal norms.

People feel pressure to conform their themselves because of others.
However, sex education is more than just teaching students about sexual responsibilities. It could open the door for many students to explore their emotions and talk about their mental health. The article Sex Education in Public Schools states that a sex education class could also show students what a healthy friendship is and what a healthy relationship should be. Many teenagers fear talking their own parents about how they feel about certain activities because of they fear how their parents may react.

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.
By examining the argument titled The Importance of Writing Badly by Bruce Ballenger in the book 21 Genres there is evidence of each rhetorical feature as he discusses the methods of writing that created the best outcomes. Ballenger uses Ethos, Pathos, and Logos to prove the effectiveness of his argument about the way we are taught to write within our educational system.

He was ridiculed for writing badly, particularly for making his essays “awkward” according to his teacher, Mrs. O’Neill. He often felt under pressure to write the perfect sentence with the perfect words and phrases making his writing unsuccessful in his teachers eyes.

13 June 2015 - Introduction Literature is a complex subject which can be interpreted in many ways. In a college classroom setting, the professor can share his / her interpretation of the reading and it can clash with the interpretation of the students; sometimes the only difference between the two interpretations is experience. The professor gives an example from The Youngers that he believes shows that Mr. Linder is the Devil; this does not make sense to the students and the professor explains how he sees this relationship between the character and the Devil. He uses other novels that he has read as well as other references that show how the Devil makes deals in which he receives a soul. By using pattern matching between a novel and other books and stories, it allows for a more complex understanding of the story and its symbolic meanings.
