I should have been opened up my eyes to reading and writing because I want to be a teacher, assistant. I always liked working with kids, and I will like to be a great assistant. Since there's no way to become a teacher assistant or even a teacher without having reading and writing skills, I will have to read and write more often. It is like King says "If you want to be a writer, you must do to things above all others: Read a lot and write a lot" (72, 73). If I want to be a teacher assistant or maybe a teacher one day I must ameliorate my reading and writing.
Why did the chicken cross the road?” This is a phrase most people have heard before. Besides this being used as a way to begin a joke, his quote is also a good way for someone to apply the seven perspectives of psychology. These seven perspectives include biopsychological, behavioral, psychodynamic, humanistic, cognitive, evolutionary, and lastly multicultural perspective. Each of these views hold its own specific beliefs as well as sharing between the seven perspectives. To better understand each of those perspectives, the quote will be applied to each perspective starting with biopsychological.
I appreciate how literature has formed the person I am today, and I poured out these feelings in my essay. Adding a quote to my final essay was recommended to me by my teacher. This helped improve my essay a great deal, and I am glad that I listened to this advice. However, I could have integrated a quote into my essay in a more effective manner. Nevertheless, I am proud of how the paper turned out.
In the story, “on Birds, Bird Watching and Jazz” by Ellison, the interesting theory as to how Charles Porter Jr. got his nickname as “Bird “ is told using humor in his stories along with a careful choice of syntax and his diction. In the first paragraph, the author uses alliteration,”...and despite the crabbed and constricted character…” to give us an insight on the figure he is speaking about. The author also chooses these words to build up an impression and then breaks it by saying Parker was a most intensive melodist. In the second paragraph of this story, Ellison establishes what a nickname does and how it would originate. Continuing on, Ellison introduces a new fact to the audience, that jazzmen were labeled as cats because they were legends.
Also, the narrator explains the food with different words, she harmonises with the environment: ' 'The girl shouted abuse after him, then picked up her baby for comfort, and settled down to watch telly with the remains of a bag of cheese and onion crisps. ' ' 12 ' 'The blond shells of the pistachio nuts, with their seductive little green gleaming cracks, repose in a small Sheffied plate dish on a stem, an oval dish which echoes, satisfactorily, elegantly, the shape of the nuts: the surface of its lining is tinily scratched, pitted and polished, golden, antique, dull but shining. ' ' 13 These problems are related to social class. But social class is related to environment. People make our
I would probably write more at home if I could think of what to write about, it’s really hard for me think of what to write. I really enjoy writing if I get to choose what I’m writing about. Personally, I think the most enjoyable thing about writing is when you get to be creative and use your imagination to create a story. My favorite type of writing is a creative story because you can write about whatever you want. My least favorite type of writing would be a research paper with a topic that
Pipher 's encouragement came from reading Anne Frank 's Diary; after reading her diary, it changed her perspective on how she sees the world. She desired to let others know how Anne Frank 's Diary had inspired her and she plans to continue to encourage more.

Her main goal is to change the world by her writing style, this way she can show others that life is not everything that it is made to be. Linda uses philological techniques to keep her audience engaged in her fragments and she is able to get her point across to others.
As a former AP Lang student, I feel that this class has been very beneficial for me in that it has allowed me to apply the techniques and strategies I learned last year toward more relevant subjects. Having the freedom of choosing topics to write about for our various essays made this class more enjoyable than the other English classes that I have taken. AP Lang focused heavily on the techniques of writing solid essays, but instead of writing about useful topics, we analyzed the short stories provided on the exams. Writing a personal narrative essay was very helpful in my college application process and allowed me to employ the same kind of strategies that I learned in class into my college essays. Likewise, creating a cover letter taught me many useful strategies that I will definitely put to use when it comes time for me to submit an official cover letter to a company.
Reflection How to Read Literature like a Professor was definitely a ‘thought provoking read’ like the table at Barnes & Noble said. Although at first, I have to admit that Foster’s writing had bored me a bit, until I realized fact that I had subconsciously been thinking about what certain items symbolize and how they were important to the story. Overall, I enjoyed the work; Foster’s book is truly “A lively and entertaining guide to reading between the lines.” I liked the references Foster constantly gave to novels and movies, that helped me with visualizing what kind of ideas he was talking about, since I personally learn better through visualizations. Finding out about the classic fairy tales becoming modern ones, surprised me a bit;
And I have decided to start using a flow chart to organize my ideas in help me stay on topic so that I don't stray and get writers block. Verbally expressing my papers are what excel in, because it gives me a chance to express what I have written in a broader tone. So that my fellow peers will understand the point that I am trying to convey. Aside from my trials and errors with my writing skills, one thing that has lead me to never giving up is that I know that with practice I will one day be great. I've always had a dream of becoming an author and a dentist.
Scratch, break or bruise on my flesh or heart, give me a waffle. Whether I’m ready to punch or ready to sob, give me a waffle. Surprising luck or boring monotony, give me a waffle. In times of mononucleosis, first place, and being way past curfew, give me a waffle. Worried about hurricanes and Middle-East peace, give me a waffle.
I often imagine myself as the character of the stories and try to figure out what I would do if I was the character in real life. It is because of reading that it helped develop my interest in writing and journaling, which is enjoyable for me. Just like reading, writing is a great way for me to unwind. I love to write about topics I’m passionate about
Even though it can be stressful to have to tell someone that their work isn 't correct, it can still be very beneficial to that person. After the first peer review I became more accepting to the idea of letting someone tell me what was wrong with my paper. I think it’s a great way to get another persons view on your paper. Along with peer reviews are revisions plans and they too can be beneficial because that gives the writer the opportunity to see their mistakes and correct them. On all my assignments I have used these tools and I have also visited the writing center on one of my assignments, which was very helpful.
Our Something from Nothing Unit was designed to help students acquire positive attitudes towards reading and books. Our goal was to make the unit as enjoyable for students as possible, while ensuring they are working towards mastery of the expectations from the Language Arts and Social Studies curriculum. With the goal of student enjoyment in mind, we chose the book Something from Nothing because we found that many students love this story and can relate to, Joseph, the boy whose belongings are wearing out over time. We began the unit by doing a read-aloud. This was to help students understand that written language is meaningful, gain an understanding of text structures, and see what fluid reading looks and sounds like (Bainbridge & Heydon, 2017).
I can recall a record number of times my wife has challenged my communication skills. To improve one 's communication, you must develop good reading writing and listening skills. (Taylor, 2015) For me, one of the keys to developing some of my skills is paying closer attention to my reports at work. I also plan to enhance my vocabulary by taking the time to look for words to substitute for commonly used in my assignments. (Bethel University, 2014) Several of the tips found in Unit 2 Read Session will be very beneficial in increasing my writing skills such as reading aloud, walking away and returning to reread something to aid in finding errors.
