Students can easily mistake Shakespeare for boredom, with an average of about twenty thousand words in a play all put into indecipherable speeches (Johnson). However, Shakespeare has the opposite effect on the brain and world. Often debate has broken out concerning the integration of Shakespeare in an English class. While some think Shakespeare has no purpose in learning and applying the English language, others accept the fact that Shakespeare utilizes nearly all aspects of the English language into a deceptive play. Another debate Shakespeare incensed questions the age and class that Shakespeare should be incorporated in.
Reading a novel about novels is a hidden pleasure that many people, especially within the English community, indulge in.

The authors of these following articles covered discuss different variables that play into the controversy of high school drug testing that support their viewpoint while writing in a manner that effectively reaches their intended audience. Although there is a significant amount of disagreement over the situation, each author backed up their claims with either examples or statistics, pulling an effective argument for each case. Drug testing is argued to be ineffective, and a waste of school funds, as we see that is side Ingraham is advocating. Others have issues with the punishments given to students with proven drug use, and the lack of effectiveness that seems to show. On the opposite side of the spectrum people are taking a stance entirely for high school drug testing, including the punishments that follow.
Many people argue that Robert Cormier’s literature is dark, un-optimistic, and that young adults should not be reading his stories. Sylvia Patterson Iskander argues in her article Reader, Realism, and Robert Cormier that: The almost universal distress about Cormier's work springs directly from the power and consistency of his imagined world, which convinces readers that it bears a recognizable relationship to the "real world" and yet appears to leave no room for anything but pessimism about the survival of Cormier's protagonists. Because of this, several school boards and parental groups in New York, Massachusetts, South Carolina, and Arizona have tried to ban Cormier's novels from the classroom. (Par. 2) Some people can not find any good in Robert Cormier’s novels and prefer to have their children watch or read stories with happy endings and happy characters.
If students can relate to the play in any way it will cause an interest to study the play without getting bored too easily. The play has many universal themes that young people usually enjoy such as young love, illogical feuding, teenage rebellion, suicide, fate, infatuation, rivalry, and friendship. These themes are still used today. For example, love being the most dominant and important theme of the play will capture students attention as it the most popular theme and students can relate to their own personal experiences. The theme of rivalry and illogical feuding can bring great excitement to the audience as the Capulets and Montagues constantly have something to fight about.
I am actually really excited for college reading even though I know the level is going to be much more difficult. I am really hoping that college reading is going to be much more interesting and the discussions that follow the reading are going to be very interesting. A goal I have for reading is to be part of study groups. I want to be part of study groups that way I have people I can discuss the reading and hear the different perspectives. Moreover, I just want to enjoy the different books that are assigned or recommended.
In recent years, research into the benefits of reading has shown us that reading helps to improve focus, concentration and memory. But what many have known all along about reading is arguably more important than facts and figures: it is that reading helps us to discover and create ourselves. More than this, reading opens our minds to new concepts, therefore naturally building a more empathetic perspective
I was encouraged to read and write more. However, it didn’t help, my spelling remained poor, as did my reading, writing and grammar. I consider myself extremely competitive which I believe has contributed to my success to date. I always strive to be the best and get extremely disheartened when I am not good at something. I believe this has resulted in such a disliking for reading and writing over the years as I could never do
Our Something from Nothing Unit was designed to help students acquire positive attitudes towards reading and books. Our goal was to make the unit as enjoyable for students as possible, while ensuring they are working towards mastery of the expectations from the Language Arts and Social Studies curriculum. With the goal of student enjoyment in mind, we chose the book Something from Nothing because we found that many students love this story and can relate to, Joseph, the boy whose belongings are wearing out over time. We began the unit by doing a read-aloud. This was to help students understand that written language is meaningful, gain an understanding of text structures, and see what fluid reading looks and sounds like (Bainbridge & Heydon, 2017).
I look for books I can relate to or books that are just about my interests. Everyone looks for books that they can relate to in some way. Even younger children, they look for books that are interesting and fun. Something that reminds them of themselves, like a book they
