I truly enjoyed taking the English 1302 class with you, thanks for making this class easy and not stressful. During my High School year, I hated to take English because my grammar is bad, however, this class has allowed me to stress less over my grammar and focus more on my arguments. In addition, every discussion and journal have helped me learned how to think critically when analyzing poems and stories. Thanks for being an attentive professor. Which essay was your strongest?

The best thing about Shyima is how brave she was to try to find the perfect family and learn to speak English at the same time for her to attend school. In the book Hidden Girl it says “ I was looking forward to making friends and learning as much as possible so I could eventually make my way in my new country.” Shyima continue to show her positive side and not having any doubts coming her way as in her new
(Tan, 2006, p. 20). This evidence supports my claim since she explained how Mrs. Tan 's version of English was what taught her to understand the language. Amy also said, "That was the language that helped shape the way I saw things, expressed things, made sense of the world" (Tan, 2006, p. 21). Without Amy learning the descriptive language that her mother used, Amy would be less expressive of herself and not as vocally involved in the
Dockterman is very effective in her argument. She uses a very generous amount of Ethos as well as logos to construct her argument while keeping underlying themes of pathos mixed in. Throughout her essay her use of diction and syntax is used at a level that makes it easy for all readers to understand what she is talking about. In the first sentence of the essay she immediately begins to establish her credibility by using a statistic that will be the basis of her argument. She then goes on to use another statistic that will confirm the first one that she had used in the opening sentence to bring together her theme and topic of the essay.
He uses wordplay, imagery, and personification to make the poem interesting. “Jabberwocky” has a unique and very creative feel to it and I enjoyed reading it because of how imaginative it is. The poem has the same rhyme scheme as seen in many of Lewis Carroll’s poems, which is abab (Carroll, Lewis Poetry for). “Rules and Regulation” is another poem written by Lewis Carroll. This is a poem about a list of rules and laws that Carroll came up with that are amusing and not very difficult to follow.
This issue is important as it influences students’ understanding of English letter sounds and combinations. Another interesting feature of this article relates to behavioural and motivational issues. The author explains that Romaji in Japan gains attention because of its contrasting shape. Therefore, it is useful as a strategy for communication or expression, which means it is not dominated by the strictures of core semantic meanings. Also, Romaji is the source of positive social behaviour, because it is considered ‘cool’ and/or sophisticated.
Based on the reading interest survey and the garfield reading attitude survey, she is highly motivated to be involved in reading, both academically and recreationally. I think that this strength can really benefit her improvement if the teacher and parents can capitalize on it. Another area of strength was that Rylie can identify the first and last letter of each word when decoding words. Rylie is able to identify the phoneme of the first and last letter and what sound should be made with it. So it does appear that she has developed sound isolation, for at least the first and last letter.
“Mother Tongue” by Amy Tan is the short story about the importance of language and how it is a key for communication. Tan emigrated from China to Oakland, California and she was a first generation of Asian-American. The author is very fascinated by the language and she believes that the language has the power of emotions, a visual image, a complex idea, and a simple truth. She also believes that there are many different types of “Englishes”. In the short story, Tan talks her story of the English she speaks, and how much people her around can change the way you converse.
