His parents could require him to work out five word problems, with a goal that he work out four out of five (80%) correctly before moving on to higher level problems. As his math and applied problem fluency increases, the problems could be harder and the number of problems per session can be increased (7, 8, 9, 10 word problems per sheet). The focus can still be on 80% of the problems correct even as the difficulty and quantity of problems increase. This is based on “Standard - CC.2.1.4.B.2 Using place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic” and “Standard - CC.2.1.5.B.2 extending an understanding of operations with whole numbers to perform operations including
My personal Michigan hero is my seventh grade social studies teacher, Ms. Dokter. Though I am not a personal friend of hers, per say, she had a tremendous impact on my life. She made me laugh, told me that I could do whatever I put my mind to, and was an amazing educator. Seventh grade was tough for me at times. I was at a new school, and it seemed like everyone knew what they were doing except me.
Although some may already have their beliefs in these subjects, this book can also make them stronger in a way that causes us to think about them further. Brain on Fire genuinely stresses Cahalan’s personality, memory, and Identity a ton throughout the entire book, which makes you think about all the characters
People that are hypocritical make other people seem depressed about themselves. For example, Tania has been with a group of friends at school, and she is having a blast with them.

Melanie is a normal child with child-like thoughts. Throughout the week, Melanie has classes but “Saturdays are long and dull, and hard to get through. Melanie tells herself aloud some of the stories that the children have been told in class” (Carey 165). Boredom and finding a form of entertainment is not a norm for a monster but it is for a child like Melanie. Melanie’s thoughts are more of a child who has been grounded, which she is in a way, and as a result of her isolation, she finds a way to pass the time by thinking of stories.
She also made a strong point about introverts while she told the audience her experience at camp. I agree with Cain’s perspective of introverts because I have many friends who fit into that category. They have more problem-solving skills and do extremely well in school.

After watching this talk, I was not left with unanswered questions or felt that she needs more additional information to back up her claims.
