Even as a young child, she was incredibly observant and noted that other Chinese girls did not speak either, and so she drew the conclusion that “the silence had to do with being a Chinese girl” (166). Kingston does not say that all Chinese children found themselves in silence – only the girls did. She does not only have to find her identity as a Chinese American, but as a girl, and to figure out how these two facets of her identity work together to define her. Brave Orchid’s cutting her daughter’s tongue resulted in a physiological change; however, Kingston’s issue with speaking proves to be more psychological.
Teachers could have students read books that discuss the same thing as Fahrenheit 451 but doesn't use all the bad language and talk. Kassia Micek wrote an article called “Parent Criticizes book ‘Fahrenheit 451’. In the article parents state that this book talks about things students should not be encouraged to discuss in school. Alton Verm, a parent of a child reading the book made comments on the book like “its filled with all kinds of filth and how the words used in the book do not need to be brought out in class.”
In “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Readers” by Kavitha Rao, she express her opinion on the topic that the current generation is not reading for fun. She mentions several experience she had with other people, that don 't see the benefit in reading for fun. She says that since people aren 't reading more leisure anymore they 're becoming less creative, inarticulate, have poor communication skills and low confidence, which is caused by parents forcing their kids to read, and the education system need to have students memorize textbooks and nothing else. After reading this article I find myself disagreeing with Rao on several points she made, I don’t believe the modern attitude towards reading is causing people to be self absorbed and unimaginative, she also claims that book clubs don 't encourage reading for fun, parents are forcing their children to read boring books which turned them away from reading and that the educational system is to blame for college students for being inarticulate.
At the beginning of the story Sonia is in math class. She is thinking to herself that she doesn’t quite understand the math. She describes the class around her as “the people” and refers to herself as a “pipsqueak”. There was sound from the back who were “the People” who sat in the back and talked, ate, and actually paid attention when they only wanted to.
Scout admits she feels fine and Atticus asks her what is wrong. She tells him that her teacher, Miss Caroline, says that they cannot read together anymore because she is too advanced for her age. Atticus responds with, “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view … until you climb into his skin and walk around in it,”(Lee 39). Though Scout does not fully understand the concept of this lesson, it slowly comes to her as the book advances. She is able to make many connections using what Atticus taught her, and she truly understands the meaning of standing in another person’s shoes.
Like the title suggests, there is a lesson learned at the end of Bambara’s story but Sylvia has a hard time admitting she learned anything. When asked about what they’ve learned, Sylvia “[walks] away and Sugar has to run to catch up”(Bambara 6). Since Sylvia is the narrator, readers are aware of her thoughts and know Sylvia has indeed learned a lesson. This is clear when Sylvia talks about the importance of $35 to her family compared to the people who shop at FAO. Instead, Sylvia stays silent when asked, not wanting Miss Moore to know she has learned something.
During dinner the daughter says she has homework but left her book in school, so the father had said he has an extra. The father has to look for the book which is far away and she doesn’t want him to find it. After dinner the daughter has to read and does her homework, which she didn’t want to do.

After exiting the admission office walking to another office in my mind again it would think I don’t even know where these offices are at and I felt ridiculous walking around because I felt that I looked lost which made me even more nervous. Once I found the pathway center they asked what I needed and I said that I needed help with my class selection. She was very kind and had the patience for me which I liked but bad thing once looking for classes that I needed to take were all full and I didn’t want to take classes that were not necessary so at that point I thought to myself that I might not be
This reminds me of my experience of learning English from a Chinese teacher in a local school and the difference I felt from being in a western style classroom. I remember the first time, when my teacher started introducing herself in English, she obviously had a Chinese accent to her English, which led to me thinking of her being an inexperienced teacher. However, when I heard our English teacher speak, I notice a huge difference between both of the teacher’s English-speaking skills. My English teacher was speaking more clearer and quicker than the Chinese teacher, making it sound more conviving. But because the way they use their words was so different from the "Chinese version" of the English I have listened to all these years, it took me a longer time to understand what my English teacher says.
This is because, if you are to light, you will be taken advantage of and no one will ever listen to you, but on the other hand, if you are too firm, everyone will start to dislike you therefore not listen to you. It is extremely important to have the perfect balance of both firm and fair. Another point Mrs. Wallace brought up, something I have never thought about before, is using language that people under you can actually unerstand. Which basically means not to use huge words that your group will not understand, beacuse if that happens, again people will get discouraged and probably not understand what is asked of them. Leaders need to not worry so much about trying to look smart, and just use common language that everyone understands.
Crigler after class, and she explained to them that tomorrow, Kendall and Ivy would have to take a test on whatshe had taught. Kendall and Ivy both thought she wasn’t being impartial because they were the only students who had to take the test. Well, as Kendall began the long trek back to her locker, all the way on the other side of the school, she thought about the test. She realizes that she was not paying any attention in class. It would be devastating if she failed her test because it would bring down her math grade, which already wasn’t that great, and she would not be allowed to play in her first game of the
u02d2 Repairing a Learning Experience – Sheila R. Darden An unpleasant learning experience was taking an algebra class online and needing to have a tutor. I did not like math when I was in high school; however, I needed a math class to obtain my bachelor degree and could do a face-to-face class. It was difficult for me to grasp the concepts used to solve the equations and the tutor tried simplify the processes so I could complete the equations.
Her math teacher makes her sit next to Rosa, a girl with cerebral palsy. At first Jessica is hesitant to do this since she doesn 't want to be linked with the handicapped, but she realizes this is wrong. When she gets to know Rosa through passed notes, she discovers that she likes the girl. Whenever Jessica starts feeling better about her situation, something knocks her back down.
An important point I learned after reading Holler if You Can Hear Me by Gregory Michie is that teachers should care about their students because students will learn more if they know you care and then they will care to learn . Mr. Mitchie believes his students don’t care enough to learn about sexism, but the truth was that they were tired of spending 2 weeks on the same lesson. Mr. Mitchie will then get angry at his class and tell them that if they didn’t care to learn then he wouldn’t make them. In another instant a teacher named Miss. Reilly was tired of her class not listening to her that she threatened to quit, but a student named Samuel wrote her a letter and told her not quit.
