Her inspiration came from the feelings of writing to an actual experience and thinking of names that are memorable to her. While she told us that reading is a pleasure activity and not for a younger audience to learn from a lesson, she immediately got my attention. The reason was because in most children 's books I have read are all based on lessons, in which it made me stay away from reading because it was so boring. As the session ended, it made me rethink the importance of writing and reading and how different approaches can to lead to
King stated, “Every book you pick up has its own lesson or lessons, and quite often the bad books have more to teach than the good ones” (221). Although he learned a lot due to books, he believes that each book teaches you a lesson. He believes that all bad books usually have a greater lesson to teach you than the good books. Books also thought him what he can and can’t do while writing. While reading books he learned “Good writing, on the other hand, teaches the learning writer about style, graceful narration, plot development, the
As mentioned before, it provides additional context that goes along well with the facts that are given in textbooks. I would like to thank you for taking the time to read my ideas regarding Huck Finn. Before reading this book, I thought it would be boring. I was surprised to find that I not only enjoyed the book, but also learned more about what was going on during this time period. I strongly urge you to continue allowing high school students to read and analyze this book during the sophomore year to align with the textbooks and
I really enjoyed the way this book was written, it was written in a way that Native Americans have been known to teach each other. They pass their knowledge down to their children through their stories. It was like sitting down with a grandparent and hearing their story of the war. I first picked this book up because the Navaho Indians were mentioned in my AP History class, but because of the time frame we had before the test was taken they were only briefly mentioned. This book grabbed my attention because of the topic and that the main characters point of view didn’t just start with the war it explained his background and why he is the type of person he became.
I chose to read The Watsons go to Birmingham by Christopher Paul Curtis. The reason why I chose to read this book was because I find the Civil Rights Movement to be a very interesting topic to learn about. I enjoy reading historical fiction books because it is very cool to see the story from someone's point of view. I also decided to read this book because when I was younger I enjoyed reading books from the I Survived series by Lauren Tarshis and I figured that since this was from the point of view of a younger person close to my age, but it was a little longer and a higher grade level, that it was a step above that series and those are some of the reasons I chose to read The Watsons go to Birmingham. I learned many funny lessons from The Watsons go to Birmingham.
During my time in high school, I would get Bs and Cs, but now at Brookdale, I am getting grades I could only dream of and also enjoy learning athte same time. For example, the ALP was tough at first but during all the journals, the freewrites, and the essays were really were not so bad and they were easier because I paid attention to my professor on writing better and to make my emotions on paper,. To summarize how Brookdale was a good choice for me was I met good people, the courses, less money to spend, has a great hands on learning experience, and getting good grades. For all the new students in the ALP, learn and enjoy being in that program because that program really helped me learn two English courses in one semester so that
I like to learn new things in English, and I like to learn new things even more when they make sense to me. In the past English seemed to get better and better every year. Since we started to read more books in in class, I started to like English even more, since I like reading. The teachers in the past English classes seemed like nice people and the classmates were not so bad either. I like how every year in English the classes get harder and harder because then I have to use my brain even more.
My experience as a reader isn 't as extraordinary as many, but I love to read. I had some great teachers throughout my education that taught me to enjoy reading challenge oneself and not be intimidated by it. Through college and today I do not have much time to read, other than school books speech, education ,and reading. Those are the sweet books I know read. Beside all those school books I now read, I use to read books about life, and history I also lloved mystery books the ones that make one wonder and keep you guessing till the end.
This is when I learned that reading was fun and understood why my classmates would check out 2 chapters books in the library. Just like reading, I found writing in a different language amazing. From a small age, I automatically knew how to read and write in Spanish, it was weird to my parents because they never taught me. Therefore, when I learned how to spell and write in English I felt powerful. Not because I knew to do this skill in two different languages, but because I was going to be able to do my homework in English and share what I had written in my “weekend journal” to the class.
On the contrary, I consider myself someone who enjoys encouraging students in a variety of tasks, projects, and opportunities to show what they really know through art and festivals. Nowadays most of the schools have implemented inclusion programs for students with physical and neurological disabilities. Unfortunately there is too little what this program does about the English language for these students so I have had to illustrate my path by myself. During my first years as a teacher I learnt less advanced students respond quite better to images, sounds and words recognition through cognates, so their activities are focused in easy tasks based on games with a lot of pictures and colors. It is hard for them to read in English, besides there are some of them who are really shy, so their mission in my sessions are to identify cognates, draw images symbolizing the key vocabulary and contribute to the English
