Malala employs pathos so that the reader could feel where she is coming from. As a result, she wants the reader to know that education for girls is a very imperative thing. By using vigorous pathos, she gets the reader to fathom that a girl’s education is important and meaningful to them. In the bibliography “I Am Malala” by Malala Yousafzai, the author mentions “Then, when she said I would have to leave my school books behind, I nearly cried, too. I loved school, and all I cared about were my books”.
The article 'Mother Tongue ' by author Amy Tan is about the variations in the English language the author uses in her life. She describes her English when giving a speech to a other people, English she uses when speaking to her mother, and English she uses in her writing. She tells of difficulties faced by both her mother and herself from these many differences. Amy 's goal in this article is to show that a person does not have to speak proper English to be seen as smart or intelligent. Amy explains the many variations of English that she had been exposed to and still uses.
She uses facts to support her claim so basically her claim is right because she has all the right evidence to back it up. She puts in her article, "There is an aspect of my Fiction that relates to thus-and-thus"—a speech filled with carefully wrought grammatical phrases, burdened, it suddenly seemed to me, with nominalized forms, past perfect tenses, conditional phrases, forms of standard English that I had learned in school and through books, the forms of English I did not use at home with my mother. (Paragraph 4)" She talks about books she has read and speeches she has read and talks about different English 's that she uses. The English she uses with her mom and the English 's she uses with her writing and everywhere else. Having sources and reading sources to support her main claim helps immensely when it comes down to persuading the
In the book They say, I say, by Gerald Graff and Cathy Birkenstein they teach students how to be a writer. It is important to let people know how you feel. If you don 't tell your mom the shoes you 're wearing are too tight, how can she help you? Now what if your mom thinks your shoes are not too tight and you want to tell your Dad? What would you say to him?
This may be bad English, but Baron is considering the possibility of it becoming a new form of English. For example, Baron told a story of one of his experiences. His daughter got an English question wrong because her teacher only accepts British English (Barton, 36). Keep in mind that this took place in
Why did Malcolm X want to learn how to read? The title of his article is Malcolm X, “A Homemade Education”, and the source is The Autobiography of Malcolm X. He wanted to learn how to read so he was looking up words in the dictionary and writing them down. He was writing words from the dictionary. In learning to read and write, Malcolm X effects include the following: intelligent conversations, freedom, and spread thoughts with others when talking to someone.
The absence of words in his vocabulary struck him as his biggest setback and this led him to the conclusion that “the best thing I could do was get hold of a dictionary – to study, to learn some words.” Through the Norfolk Prison school Malcolm acquired a dictionary, along with some tablets and pencils. This started his personal quest to improve his penmanship and study words to gain literacy. He began by copying the first page of the dictionary word by word. He then read the words he had written in his own handwriting out loud over, and over. This painstaking work soon became easier as he realized with some effort that he could recollect the words
Their grandmother, however, is at the biggest disadvantage, not knowing even enough English to ‘prove her loyalty to pledge, “I would fight for America if it were ever in danger.”’ as described in lines 273-274 on page 60. However, the stories of My Favorite Chaperone and A Place To Call Home describe how immigrants manage to either adjust to or overcome this problem. In My Favorite Chaperone, it describes how the main character and her brother –Maya and Nurzhan- manage to get through this by taking ESL classes –a program used to improve a person’s level of English. They also translate for their parents when needed as shown on page 11where Maya translated what Mr.
Her response was, “I think learning new languages help us learn more about other people's culture and how they grew or live like and what their language means to them”. After furthering the questioned I learned that Young found that a person should be able to speak their native language without judgment. A person should not be looked down upon just because they do not mean societies criteria. I interviewed a student at Tri-City United that is bilingual, her name is Guadalupe Ruiz. Ruiz is the daughter of two Hispanic speaking parents, she speaks Spanish and English.
The Seamstress has started to be interested in the novels that Luo read for her and showed how she was changed through the new knowledge she has acquired. Luo believed that he could “transform” the “little mountain girl” by reading different kinds of novels. The evidence of this transform began in the change of her attitude towards education. At the beginning of the novel, the seamstress wasn’t really attentive towards education. However when Luo started to read her books hoping to “make her more refined and cultured”, Luo shares the magic of literature with the Seamstress.
Point 1: Sociolinguistics (8) 174w When it comes to reading, every student has different experiences in regards to what they are interested in reading. Working with students that are extremely diverse sociocultural theory addresses the importance of incorporate reading that students can relate to culturally. Implementing culturally diverse material, students begin to reflect with the story that they are reading and they are motivated to read because they are becoming part of the story. By implementing different cultures books, they are expanding their knowledge of other cultures that they are not familiar or were never aware. Adapting to students culture is important for a teacher to do, especially when teaching a diverse school because making those personal connections are crucial to building relationship with the students and their community.
Previously, in Dr. Boyce’s literacy class, we rigorously studied and learned how to apply reading strategies to specific texts. Thus, the text ‘Stupid Lady From Denver’ by Chris Tovani (2004) struck me as especially familiar. Everything that was stated in the article brought back memory after memory of all the various reading strategies we covered last semester. Tovani (2004) states that “Good readers separate themselves from struggling readers when they recognize that they are confused and do something to repair meaning”, which rings especially true to my memory as well (p. 5). She encouraged us to seek out challenging portions of the text that confused us, use our marks to label what was unknown, and then use the strategies such as ReQuest,
The journal I read was about text complexity and its relation to students learning how to read. The journal article was titled “What Research Says about Text Complexity and Learning to Read.” The journal was used to combat the statements and changes made by the English Language Arts Common Core State Standards. The CCSS believes that students should be reading more complex works of literature. The CCSS also believes that the best way for a student to catch up to grade level reading is to read book that are on grade level. The author of the journal felt otherwise.
When students first start learning to read they must learn the shapes of the alphabet, the sounds they make, and many more iterative steps that develops a student 's proficiency in the traditional form of literacy. With the development of technology teachers are given more tools to teach students. In order for teachers to use these new tools properly they must know how to wield them properly. Websites, Wikis, Social media, podcasts, and video making are great ways of instructing students. While the old literacies are similar to the new literacies, new literacies take the building blocks of the old and use them in a different way.
His dedication to his opinion came across to this reader as extremely aggressive in tone. Had this not been required reading, I would not have read past the first few lines. Ms. Wheeler’s writing was more technical in nature. She uses US Standard English, to explain her work with student’s explaining how she decodes her students work looking for differences are in their first vernacular from the US Standard English, and discusses
