Which helped me get better in language arts. I have many goals for myself in language arts that I hope to complete by the end of the year.In my life, my mom loved to read. When she was little so she gave me book recommendations that she liked which helped me learn to love to read. Reading and writing also come with accomplishments and struggles along the way but in time you improve and become better. I have learned my strengths and weaknesses
In an attempt to calm down my hyperactivity, my mother taught me to read and I loved reading, at the beginning at least. The first book I had on my hand was a Physic Geography one. I was fascinated with the pictures and their colors. The idea of the planetary movement and cosmological events such as eclipses, constructed in my mind a complex and rich universe. This occurred when I was 5 years old.
Through college, Draper continued to write and act in plays. Other successful plays include The Grand Old Man and From the Singing Hills. She went on to write children’s books. One of Draper’s first book was Ridge Willoughby, which was about a child named Ridge Willoughby who had a big family and went on adventures in Missouri. She took inspiration for her own life experience, including her big family, the cabin in Bristle Ridge her family owned and her own adventures around Warrensburg.
She tried making up poems like the ones she heard, or she pretended her stuffed animals were characters from books. She thought all about authors and imagined them writing the stories she loved. Eventually she imagined herself as a writer, too. By fourth grade, she converted a corner of the loft apartment she shared with her mom into her personal writing spot. For the last couple of years, she has spent a great deal of time working there.
In her classes we have also read a variety of great novels with my favorite being The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. For our final exam of my sophomore year we were assigned to write an essay called “The Pitfalls of the American Dream” in which we compared the main protagonist of The Great Gatsby with the main protagonist of Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller (a play we read in class). To this day this assignment is one of my favorite portfolio pieces because it discusses my favorite book read in school and showcases the writing skills that Ms. Murphy helped me to
I have met quite a couple from my sophomore year, attending a fiction writing camp. It was one of the best experiences of my life, as I got to meet writers my age and analyze what the short stories they were writing while also getting feedback on my own. My writing has also improved since attending and I have grown both as a fiction writer and as an individual. With the topic of my love for writing aside, I hope to find a place that will support me as I grow further and find myself. Also, I am completely open to the idea of meeting other individuals who share the same ideas and mind set as I
Until now, I have realized that life calls for a mind-blowing reading, a colorful travel, an exciting concert, a history of persistence and most importantly love. Both teachers and parents told us to read numerous books at an early age. At that time, most of us could not understand what authors mean and just scan pages quickly. Even sometimes, we need some help from parents for illiteracy. But when we grew up into a teenager, we began to have a deep comprehension.
You start from nothing and learn as you go on”. Seems to me that every educator I’ve had through high school has had a fixation with writing and it’s guidelines. Each one taught me a different aspect of writing: structure, grammar, and creativity. Most of our high school careers consisted of writing; a practice not enjoyed by many, and the vast majority blames the education system or the educators themselves. Nevertheless, I learned to savor it because I believe those four years of extensive essays and citations polished my writing skills and triggered an appreciation of it.
Another factor that gave me the strength to love reading was because of my older sister. She always told me different bedtime stories, which engaged me to reading story books. She daily bought colored story books from her friend, and read the book as I look at the images per pages. I remembered that I had two favorite books. The one was entitled “Ang Pambihirang Buhok ni Raquel” and the other one was “Mr.
He reflected my weakness in writing, but he knew i can improve it and that i am will be capable of getting the opportunity i was aiming for. He organized for me a daily writing session with him to improve my writing skills. He have always believed in my capabilities to improve so fast. I applied for the opportunity to deliver my speech. It was a form in which you write your name and you have to get a signed letter from your English teacher that you are one of the best students in his class.
