“The Sponsors of literacy” by Deborah Brandt could be easily related to Malcolm’s story except for the fact that he didn’t have your average literary sponsor. Malcolm’s story closely follows Dora Lopez’s in their quest for self-education. They both realized the struggle of being illiterate and not being able to communicate their thoughts. They both used books and correspondence to learn conversational discourse while practicing their reading and writing. He used the tools he could acquire behind bars to create a literary sponsor from a dictionary.
Author, Nathaniel Hawthorne, uses his writing to show how each character shapes Hester in a particular way. In "The Scarlet Letter," Hester 's relationships with her daughter Pearl, her agape Arthur Dimmesdale, and her vengeful husband Roger Chillingworth help readers to see the maturity in Hester with each one. The mother-daughter relationship has a unique quality like no other. A mother and daughter love and support each other through good times and bad times.

Then forgive others” because you don’t know when you will see them for the last time (Albom 164). Morrie has an interesting viewpoint when it comes to forgiveness. I agree that it is important to forgive people, even though you are allowed to take your time with it. There have been instances where I found it difficult to forgive people that hurt me for a while, but I worked continuously towards pardoning them.
My relationship with literature is a perfect example. It may have started small but grew into one of the most important things in my life. My relationship with literature started at an early age. Some of my earliest memories are of my mother reading story books to me.
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.
At first, as a child Ignatow was extremely interested in what his parents’ conversations held in relation to the business and material aspects. However, it did not take long for Ignatow to realize that he “did not value material success” (“David Ignatow”). Rather, Ignatow preferred the “personal freedom” he was given when he was writing his poetry (“David Ignatow”). Ignatow possessed an ideal view on life and the world, which often found him in trouble with many of his bosses. He quickly discovered that the effort he had to put into working took away from his time to write, which caused him to find himself at odds with those he worked for.
Through all the years of writing I have recognized that I believed writing is all about following the rules. I have held back from truly expressing myself because I focus on following the rules too much. These rules I never thought to impact my writing have also affected other student 's writing styles. I am choosing to discuss where I believe I have learned to follow certain writing rules and rules in general while using personal experiences. I will address why instructors tend to grade and focus on such insignificant rules rather than teaching better writing skills.
No matter who and where people are, they face hardships and struggle for getting better in this or that situation. Writers try to cope with their scuffles by writing. Writing is one way of pain relief and also connection with those who keep up with them and their work. One of such writers was F. Scott Fitzgerald who wrote the collection of essays; the Crack-up that mainly gives the impression of being a monologue starving to be a dialogue. The author used the technique of simply addressing his ideas to the readers by breaking the formality.
Again, my third one is a mess. And my last speech, I wish I reviewed all my facts and tailored the outline a little better. I know for a fact that I did my research, but I was too afraid that if I discuss all my ideas that will make me go over the time limit again. As a problem solution pattern, I didn't deliver an actual solution, although I did have a solution, I sadly cut it from my final draft. I found out that I need to develop my writing skills more, improve the organization of my ideas and always pay attention to what is being ask in the problem.
He/she went from something complicated to something more clear and clean. Also, he/she used more examples while he was talking about the rhetorical choices to make himself more understandable and persuasive. However, in his later draft, he still did not use an attention getter, which is something that for me was necessary because writers need to convince the readers that they need to read the essay. Secondly, the author kept the quotation in his conclusion, which as I previously said was not necessary because he already convinced his audience of what Jaschik was arguing about, who he was trying to persuade, and why he was trying to persuade. So, for me the author should still eliminate that
In Lamott’s writing, she animates her ideas of writing raft drafts to the readers. Lamott delivers her message very creatively by using various descriptive and poetic phrases, making her piece entertaining and impressing. She frankly talks about her struggles as a writer in order to encourage the readers to feel comfortable making their first attempts. However, because of her language style in the article, her argument becomes vague. From the reader’s point of view, the intention of this article seems to be a ‘writing guide for beginners’ rather than an argumentative essay because her writing lacks evidence and credibility.
Fredrick Douglas was not as happy as he expected to be when he was finally able to read. He stated, “I would at times feel that learning to read had been a curse rather than a blessing.” He is saying reading only gives him new worries, and no hopes. In the paragraph he talks about how reading would solve one of his problems, only to create a bigger one. This frustrated him because he wanted to figure out how to solve all of his problems.
Despite the downside of arts and humanities courses, students should look at the positive side at how these courses will help them. Fredrick Douglas talks about the importance of reading and writing in his essay "Learning to Read and Write." Douglas said "It opened my eyes to the horrible pit but no ladder upon which to get out. In moments of agony, I envied my fellow-slaves for their stupidity." (Douglas)
However, even though Theodore did not stop receiving amazing grades, it did change his perspective of his career immensely. Theodore knew that his father did not like the idea of him being a scientist, and so this was a small impact on him. During college, Roosevelt fell in love with Alice Hathaway Lee, a young woman from a prominent New England banking family he met through a friend at Harvard. Alice Lee also was a very big impact throughout his education period and made it clear that she did not want Theodore to become a scientist.
