Have you ever read a story that, at first glance, looked simple, but as you read and reread it transformed into something worth contemplating over? David Macaulay’s Black and White challenges the reader to expand their mind and see the full picture. He asks readers in his Caldecott Medal Acceptance Speech to demystify their take on the entirety of the book. He encourages the reader to truly see the book in its entirety. To begin with, the four parts connect to make one story.
The first day of class we needed to have the book annotated and ready for discussion. Through the annotations, I was able to grasp the hidden meaning and values of the book. I remember when I finally came to the realization of the underlying meaning
Vladimir Nabokov challenged his Cornell students in one of his introductory literature courses to select four attributes that each student finds most necessary for good reading. Nabokov provided the students with a list of ten attributes they were to choose the four from; belong to a book club, identify with the hero or heroine, concentrate on the social-economic angle, prefer a story with action and dialogue, have seen the book in a movie, be a budding author, have imagination, have memory, have a dictionary and have some artistic sense. Although each of these can contribute to good reading, four attributes stand out greater than the rest for me. Those four are; have imagination, identify with the hero or heroine, have some artistic sense, and have memory. These four attributes will be
Huggan characterizes Elizabeth and voices her inherent thoughts and feelings throughout the unorthodox tale. By adopting phrases like “my mother” and “I turned nine” she displays that it’s her perspective when she nastily describes Celia, using adjectives such as “bland and stupid and fruitlike.” Huggan takes advantage of this first person viewpoint to give her readers a better apprehension of Elizabeth and her reasoning behind her decisions. A particular illustration of this is when she changes her ways from getting “meaner and meaner” to
Leadership theories and approaches. University of People BUS 4402 Professor Edith Koopmans December 28th, 2016 Leadership theories and approaches. In this week’s written assignment I’m going to present the brief overview of leadership theories and to describe in details pros and cons of the different leadership theories (at least 3) and then to discuss how these theories fit with my own personal style.
separated from her historical context. It could be viewed as one who was living invisibly finally uses her voice and becomes seen, or one who started to speak up, but became silent again (48). As Bollobás argues, the question in this matter is Janie’s outbreak of her situation, her female subjectivity out of the realm of oppression, by killing the abusive Joe’s pride by applying hate speech as well (48-49).
The wallpaper in the narrator’s room may have resembled her situation. The color of the wallpaper was unclean faded yellow. Some authors think that Gilman may have used the wallpaper to resemble the society and other authors thought that The Yellow Wallpaper is a symbol of freedom in mind. The writer intended to convince her readers to acknowledge the female narrator’s intelligence and creativity as a woman. After reading “The Yellow Wallpaper” I believe that the work is an outstanding example of feminism.
Reflection In this semester, I succeeded in finishing several assignments and some in-class writing. During the writing process, I learned a lot about these different kinds of writing formats and realized my own weakness. As for the four essays that I wrote: summary and response paper, rhetorical analysis, argumentative essay and reflection essay, I’d like to introduce my past English learning experience first, then discuss each assignment individually and express my feelings and reflection.
I don 't know if you would remember me or not but I had my INT 101 with you my first semester. It was Understanding Self and Others and we discussed race, ethnicity, and segregation nearly every class and we had to write journals discussing these topics. The reason I decided to email you is because I 've thought a lot about those journals I wrote. I remember that I was constantly arguing that people should get over the past and we should just ignore the past in order to heal and realize now that I was ignorant.
This artifact is a research paper that we had to write for my English 12 class. We could pick any topic of our choosing as long as we could find 12 credible sources that support our topic. The topic that I chose was the history of racism. I felt like people in today 's society doesn 't realize how racism started and the effects that it could cause. This artifact relates to the page "writing samples" and to English 12 because it is a wring sample that I wrote in my senior year of high school.
In the first paper, I really did not look for any errors, but I had over 35 errors in that paper. After the first essay I started to look a little before turning in my essay, but in essay two I still had over 30 errors. Making sure I notice these errors without needing the help of others is a great technique to learn for myself. I started asking for help from my professor Kitty Burroughs and she explained where I went wrong. She wrote a handout called “Sentence Boundaries and Errors” to help people like me with these issues.
The first timed writing assignment was to discuss the differences between the novel and the movie, Into the Wild, by John Krakauer. In retrospect, my essay would have been more effective if I clearly identified one element in detail about why the change in narrator impacted the story. The use of examples would have strengthened my argument and allowed me to stay on point with the prompt. I also think that a compare and contrast paragraph would have helped my essay. For example, comparisons could have been made between other written works and films.
Introduction Mixed races, now, has become a matter of a great concern for various countries. The matter drawn attention of numerous researchers or professors, in which Richard Rodriguez has done an outstanding work with his “Blaxicans” and Other Reinvented Americans” essay .In his essay, through the story circles around the Hispanics, he magnifies the racial classification that formerly exists does not fit today reality. Therefore, it plays an important role to support the author’s overall theory and help the audience to have a clear vision to the problem. Body
In the case of Jacob Lawrence, his personal style brought the African-American experience to life using contrasts between dark and vivid colors. Nonetheless, two examples of some of his most known paintings include “ The Builders, The Family” and “This is a Family Living in Harlem”. While both paintings are similar in that they both show strong family unity in the African Culture, they are different in the setting where each of the paintings are taking place. Strong family unity is present in, “ The Builders, The Family”, as it shows a nice, well dressed family walking together on their way to either church or their household.
