To some people it is not. Some teachers say that the book is challenging for students. Now, this novel may be difficult for students, but that is how students learn new information. If students weren’t to have read harder pieces of literature all throughout their schooling career, they would stay at the same level of reading for most of their life. The reason why students should read more challenging novels are because they learn new things, and they could also learn how to act in a certain situation based on the type of challenging story they read.
And what else seems like common sense is being able to read perfectly by the age of ten. It seems even more common that up by the teen years, adolescence should be reading much higher class novels. But what seems to be the case are that children are not reading out of pure passion of reading, but are forced by parents and teachers to read. To those students, their drive to read is not to further their literacy or expand English knowledge. Those reasons fall short of their time.
The bible verse, "Come to me all who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest," from the book of Matthew, chapter 11, verse 28, explains to go reach out to someone if you need help with anything. Moving on, I got into movies that were made from books and they seemed to help me picture the book better. For example, in my junior Honor's English class, we watched the Great Gatsby and it provided specific imagery in the book, which helped me understand it better. Mrs. Jenkins, my English teacher, was one of the reasons I started to read again and journal more often. Something she said had stayed into my mind and it turned around for
Anyone who has read a book to a young child has found the complex topics must be explained or reread a second time so the child can understand. As a child grows older, they become more curious about the world around them. They seek answers to the same questions asked years prior because they seek a greater understanding of a topic. Two authors that match this progression well are Joanne Mattern and Darren Rovell. Joanne Mattern the wrote the biography Robert Cade: Gatorade inventor that includes photographs for a young audience and presents the information so that an inexperienced reader would understand.
While Alexie also takes on an identity to fortify his argument, it is a completely different identity than Prose. The authors both appropriate a distinctive style and rhetorical devices into their essays, which in turn create strong arguments, captivate the audience, and reveal the writer’s true thoughts and feelings. As stated earlier, Alexie uses numerous rhetorical devices in his essay, Superman and Me. A few of these being: repetition, parallelism, and flashbacks. Alexie poses repetition throughout his essay when he writes, “I was smart.
Personal Literacy Narrative Reading and writing is a tool everybody needs in their lifetime the basic reading and writing skills are used on a daily base no matter what field you plan to study. Reading and writing are taught at a young age. I personally was taught by preschool I noticed on how I grew with my writing and how I became a better reader and writer throughout my life I personal love reading and writing it’s a way for everyone to express themselves through their choice of words. Everybody learns how to read and write differently some students tend to be stronger than others, personally speaking I feel I tend to be higher in reading then writing. I learned how to read and write at my elementary school named Saint La Salle.
Carroll put these tropes into the story to specifically make the book more intelligible for adults. While some adults would read a children’s book with little hidden meaning and tropes, more would prefer to read something with more depth. It allows for a feeling of understanding. When they read the book as a child and then again as an adult and see the differences and realize the depth, they have a newfound sense of
The ageing population of the world is a new phenomenon that, even, the richest and most powerful countries, are trying to understand. The ageing people are no longer restricted to a small portion of the population. However, there are still differences between ageing in developed and underdeveloped countries. This is due to the fact that the increasing number of older people in less developed countries is due to the high number of births during the early twentieth century. But the ageing population of European countries, in recent decades, is due to the relatively high birth rate in first quarter of the century, coupled with the decreasing rate of mortality in all age groups.
Language acquisition is a fundamental stage of childhood, as is generally the focus for 6- to 12-year-old school children (Bee et al., 2018). As a child, I was encouraged by my parents to read as an independent hobby. Research suggests the importance of motivating children to prepare for independent reading in school, as it contributes to one’s reading performance in adulthood (Bee et al., 2018). My genuine passion and interest in reading influenced my literary ability from an early age, and I was reading novels by kindergarten and was often placed in gifted reading programs. Had I not been so interested in reading as a child, my literary aptitude may not be at the level where it is
In the elementary grades, literacy was more focused on fluency, phonics, phonemic awareness, etc. while in the older grades, there seemed to be more focus on content and comprehension. The younger grades did more practice of skills and strategies, while the older grades were working on applying the strategies in the books and stories that they were reading. For example, the eighth graders were reading The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton, and they were really working on understanding and relating to characters, understanding the author’s motive, inferring, etc. They were using strategies they had already learned and digging into the book using those skills to better
My earliest reading memory was in Kindergarten. Every day we practiced our reading skills with simple picture books. I was very proud because I was in the “advanced” group with one other student. Once I learned to read it became an important part of my life. I remember reading books from Dr. Seuss to Magic Tree House to Junie B. Jones and Harry Potter.
By implementing literature circle all the students are reading at their level and with people from their level. Forming reading level groups, will help those students that need extra time reading to take their time and be helped by those of their level. Also, it helps advance readers will be challenge with a higher level of vocabulary that will be introduce in the reading. In classes I have observe this method of teacher is implied, but all students are reading the same books. The only different were the reading assignments were modified based on their academic level.
Ever since I was going to school I was able to learn how to write. Writing seems fun in which it was a way of communicating with words through a paper. Writing in the younger grades seemed like something fun to do. Once I got into the higher grades that didn’t seem like the case as writing needed to be written with more than just three pagers which didn’t seem as much. Starting in Elementary School writing was all all about making up short stories onto paper and with a picture drawing to go with the writing.
I enjoyed reading this article and I also agree with what Dallas Rico said. While reading books like the "Great Gatsby" and "Hamlet" are required in high school, students should be engaged with reading first before having to read redundant classics. As a person of color, myself, I also get bored of reading books about that have white main characters. I usually look for books with colored main characters, so I’m not surprised if other colored students get tired of the classics. I look for books I can relate to or books that are just about my interests.
Atticus and even Bob Ewell still leave such an impression on the parents today. We need to keep reading this book because Atticus shows us what lessons to really teach our children. “Most parents know what their children are capable of but step in to make things easier for them,” Says Sheri Nago. Atticus does the complete opposite by letting Jem and Scout be themselves. Parents today that are like Bob Ewell need to understand this novel and know what Atticus does and why he does it.
