In the midst of baking 40 dozen cookies and 38 dozen cupcakes, I was coordinating with a missionary in Haiti, Krisie Mompremier, who knew what the family needed most. After countless hours of baking, my group and I were able to raise $1250 which we used to purchase basketball hoops, plates, beds, silverware, cups, schooling for the children, and uniforms. Although we were not able to directly deliver these goods to the family ourselves, we were able to see pictures that were equally rewarding. Their faces and gratitude made the many nights of little sleep well worth
Banned Books are books that are prohibited by law or to which free access is not permitted by other means. Banning books is against the writers right for freedom of speech, which is the first amendment. Students have the right to read, reading is not illegal, so why ban books? If a reader is mature enough to handle some curse words or bad behavior then they should be able to read banned books. Some people believe books should not be banned in schools/libraries but just because you do not like it does not mean it should be taken away, that is the authors freedom of speech.
In the novel Ordinary People by Judith Guest, Beth Jarret may come across as the antagonist. She has a side to her that makes the reader want to dislike her, but as the story unfolds the reader then gets a deeper understanding. Beth’s reactions to situations could have maybe been better, but every person handles tragic events in different ways. Her cold shell hides the fact that events from the past scare her into feeling like an outcast. Any reader could tell that Beth’s character was strong, maybe cold, but definity strong.

Hello, I am Misael Molina; at this moment I am still a junior going on to be a senior. I decided to join CHS 8 to learn different historical events in my people's past. Primarily, I am also taking this course to improve on my knowledge of prior experiences and to develop an understanding of how Chicano's have improved throughout the years. By this my current academic goals are to excel in all my classes, while developing new techniques on analyzing documents. I tend to stay after school for cooking classes in which I enjoy because I stay with all my friends in which I couldn't do if I was always at home; singing is another hobby I pursue since it gives me joy while enduring the constant bombardment of school assignments.
Banned books are basically books that are thought to be “unsuited” for their intended age group and are therefore challenged by parents to be removed from a school or any local library shelf. I personally do not agree with banning books. I believe that most books that are being banned

In “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Readers” by Kavitha Rao, she express her opinion on the topic that the current generation is not reading for fun. She mentions several experience she had with other people, that don 't see the benefit in reading for fun. She says that since people aren 't reading more leisure anymore they 're becoming less creative, inarticulate, have poor communication skills and low confidence, which is caused by parents forcing their kids to read, and the education system need to have students memorize textbooks and nothing else. After reading this article I find myself disagreeing with Rao on several points she made, I don’t believe the modern attitude towards reading is causing people to be self absorbed and unimaginative, she also claims that book clubs don 't encourage reading for fun, parents are forcing their children to read boring books which turned them away from reading and that the educational system is to blame for college students for being inarticulate. In the very first paragraph Rao mentions a the conversations she had with two different people, the first person say “I never read fiction” and “After what 's the point of a book if it doesn 't teach you anything.” Another person says “Fiction is not real, no?” and adds “I only like to read real stories to improve myself.” She states that many young people don 't see the benefit in read unless its to help improve themselves, or to ace a job interview.
It 's a hot a sunny day and also the first day of high school for 14 year old Audrey Wells. She walks past the local soup kitchen and sees volunteers inside laughing and having fun, wishing she had something like that she continued on her walk to school. As she enters her class her teacher says that he requires 10 community service hours per quarter to get a passing grade. He also says that there are many benefits to community service such as, getting teens out of their homes, giving adolescence a feel of the real world and, and providing students with chances to meet people outside of school that would get to personally know us. In the future all these things will be very beneficial to these students everyday lives.
The true definition of a “reading disorder” was not defined properly. This make it harder for readers to understand Ferreday due to the lack of understanding of what a “reading disorder” is in context of her argument. She supports her statements by using different sources as supporting evidence. The random transition between the different sources to support her argument aids in creating confusion for readers as well as lack of drive to read this literary work to completion. The structure of the article determines the easiness of comprehension of the main
Fahrenheit 451 had many different pairs of characters that had many different thoughts about certain things in life. Mildred, Montag 's wife, was very negative and only cared about herself, but Clarisse cared about other people than herself and had a positive view on the outside world. Beatty thinks that books will cause the world to end, but Montag thinks that they won 't and can help teach the world many different things. Faber and the Lost Gang both wanted to make people think that books are good again, but had two different ways of doing that.. In the book, Fahrenheit 451, there were three pairs of characters who were very different from each other and represented something or somebody in a society.
When Travis Parker faces the choice of turning off his wife’s life support, I am reminded of two interviews I conducted where the interviewees had to turn off the life support of a child. (Beckford, Avil)” It was good that she put a recommendation to readers but she did not go into detail. In some cases, it is good to keep it sweet and short but hers was way too short for me honestly. Many people come to find what Beckford thinks about the book and having it short doesn’t really help. It was nice to have a summary of the book, but I think she sort of went a little overboard on the summary though.
My friend Max explained while stuffing a bar in his mouth, "We can call each other and play together on servers." So I explained to my mom about what Max said like that we can play together. She thought it was a extremely great idea. I rushed down stairs with excitement. I ate a quick bowl of cereal in one minute.
Therefore, I decided to read The Confidence Code by Katty Kay and Claire Shipman. I wished I could regain the confidence I had before moving to the U.S. The book’s key takeaway is that lack of confidence leads to inaction, and actions are necessary to build confidence. I agree that most women, including me, think a lot about consequences and often have self-doubt. This can ultimately inhibit women from seeking opportunities and affect their decision-making ability.
