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. Since the similarities will be present, the students could make connections to both of the
Another example is, Mr. Thomas “Samples of rock from almost every mine within a five-mile radius” (44). This is where Matthew finds a lot of information about Wheal Maid if the author hadn’t carefully thought about Mr. Thomas the story would have been very different. This goes for all of the characters in the story to run smoothly the characters have to fit
The government was trying to stop something that the majority of the population wanted. If the government was going to prevent it, the people were going to have to get their goods illegally. This is where the organized crime comes in. People with brilliant ideas of making mega money decide to sell the illegal goods for high prices- the people can’t get it anywhere else but from a specific dealer. Men like Al Capone killed out their opponents to control their profits of the illegal goods.
Adele would treat Edna as if the acts that she did was the up most abnormal and weird. Even Edna’s father, when he was in the novella for one chapter, told Leonce to control his wife (Chopin, 2003). Edna was perpetually always under the influence of someone else except in the end which is why she chose to swim in the ocean to never

In the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, there are a bunch of main characters. Two that play key roles are Jean Louise Finch and Jem Finch. They are the children of Atticus Finch who is a widower of his beloved wife, so he is having to raise Jem and Scout by himself. Jem is four years older than his little sister so he has matured a little more so he knows what is right and what is wrong. Scout just tries to follow in Jem 's footsteps so if Jem gets in trouble, then Scout will too.
In in novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Atticus tries to instill many of his morals into his children, and many of them stick with them throughout the story. For example, Atticus tells his daughter scout, “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). This is a lesson that Scout definitely internalizes, and evidence of this pops up in multiple situations at different points in the story. This story could have some similarities to David Levithan 's novel Every Day. Although the quote would be a bit more literal, the idea of looking at things from another person’s perspective is the main theme of the story.
Long Christmas Ride Home is a story about a family who goes and sees their Grandmother for the Christmas holiday. The story for the family seems that they need to come to terms with some emotional grief that is associated. During this trip they learn about the problems at hand and try to fix it. It’s so much more than a story of happy times but definitely showcases the sad times and the term of acceptance. For the dialogue I really thought that it was good and it was needed.
This quote means that no matter how hard it was to keep hiding it was interesting. I have had a different life from so many different girls that has been a real adventure. So, she traded that diary like if her whole life was there, and it is true, ever since they have been hiding, her life was that diary. Anne Frank was a girl that got famous for writing a journal, she was always hiding from the German’s and what she felt during she was in the secret annex. So, this essay really gets into how she felt about her diary.
John Green decided to dedicate a book to Esther and make it similar, but not identical to Esther 's life story. That book would later turn into a movie,become a bestselling book,and inspire people. The book is one of the most common books people think of when you say John Green… The Fault In Our Stars. Although Esther unfortunately didn’t survive into her adult years, she still had an impact on adults.
I did not have the correct knowledge on how to make a lesson plan. Now that I did that assignment, I now know what it takes to make a good lesson plan. Some districts banned and challenged many books. A challenged book is identified by a person or group as materials which should be re-evaluated for appropriateness, usually for children or young adults in schools.
The idea is to relate The Outsiders to students’ lives for students to become more engaged in the reading and maintain the novel’s events by relating events, characters, etc. to students’ lives. IPTS 1C relates to this performance activity by how the competent teacher relates students’ lives and development into a lesson. I learned prior knowledge and incorporating students’ lives into a lesson greatly impacts student learning. Performance Activity 23: Observe and record how the teacher manages the classroom. What
In the article written by Hephzibah Anderson, Anderson states that Roald Dahl wrote macabre books for children to remind us that children’s lives are not always full of sunshine. First, she talks about how dark some of these stories tend to be and gives us some opinions about whether or not they help children. Then she gives us some background information on the author 's life, expressing how this may have caused him to write this way. Though many of the facts she showed influenced a negative idea of Roald Dahl, Anderson uses a quote, by Maria Nikolajeva, to show how these macabre stories can be “healthy” and “an important cognitive affective function”. In the end, Anderson shows us how children’s books can be both happy and sad while still
