In life, people of all ages have to follow rules for many different aspects of life. There will not be a time when there are no rules. That is a very important theme that two books follow. The books are titled, The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin and Ashes, Ashes by Jo Treggiari. Both authors clearly explain the sources that inspired their themes in the two completely separate books.
Each student come up with their own opinion on which is better the novel or the movie. The Westing Game movie and book contains many similarities and differences that are worth exploring. The Westing Game is about the tenants pairs of sunset towers trying to figure Westing’s murderer. The pairs are gifted with 10,000 dollars and a set of four clues. Each of the pairs had their own idea about what the answer was to The Westings Game.
The Westing Game: Element 1 Quote 1: Ellen Raskin created settings, in the book, by using very descriptive words. An example of imagery in the book would be when Ellen Raskin describes Sunset Towers. “The sun sets in the west (just about everyone knows that), but Sunset Towers faced east. Strange! Sunset Towers faced east and had no towers.
The believing game helped me understand how life works and not become so stressed if something does not go my way. Not all teachers will teach to my specific learning style. Believing that I can do well in a class and learn from any teacher helped me not only deal with high school, but will also help me throughout college and life. The believing game does not just pertain to academic struggles, but also any obstacle one may face throughout life. I learned that changing my perspective allows me to see that sometimes things are my fault and it is myself that needs to change, not other
Question 1: The three examples of figurative language that I am going to analyze are, rhetorical questions, personification, and similes . Rhetorical question: “Here or elsewhere, what did it matter? Die today, or tomorrow, or later.” (Wiesel 98) This example of a Rhetorical question really adds to the text by almost forcing the reader to think to themselves, and actually try to answer the question that is being asked. It involves the reader and therefore can make the story more appealing to them. Rhetorical questions impact me as a reader by, engaging me into the text and also by making me think about what is being talked about in the book.
Lessing begins her essay with somewhat of a huge generalization of the people in the west, which kind of gives a shocking start for her readers that might decrease interest, since she states that this is the way they live which is very general, and the fact that there were no evidence made it seem as a weak starting point. Furthermore, she only includes facts in the beginning and does not make any claims supporting her argument as to gradually show the reader
The Astonishing Adventures of Van Helsing III is a ridiculous video game in one of the most actual sense of the word. Between explosive attacks on a circus of demonic clowns and trading Monty Python references with a Minotaur, sometimes it's difficult to say what drives this frenetic experience. You discover the exact same excessive action, pop culture quips, and touches of gothic scary here that you do in the previous games in this series. Thematically, nonetheless, the series has increased. Below bursts of raucous action and tongue-in-cheek winks to the audience, there's an earnest, albeit haphazard attempt at character dramatization that works due to the fact that the rest of the video game is so ridiculous.
This idea of creating standards across the board for ELL’s, has created an abundance of opportunities for teachers to see where additional support for individual students are needed. During my first pre-practicum visit this semester I had the opportunity help administer the speaking portion of the WIDA to some third graders. It was heavily based upon illustrations and the questions were all read out to students so there we limited to no reading necessary. I think this is important because this test purely just assessed the students’ speaking abilities, they were not asked to read a sentence aloud, but instead repeat what they heard or announce what they saw. This takes away any mistakes that may be made simply because they student is behind in reading but not speaking.
Glossing as a vital tool in learning vocabulary and reading comprehension has different types and it has some implications for the teachers to help their students as an assistant, and also it is a tool to save the time instead of looking up the words in dictionaries. 1. Introduction: Vocabulary or lexicon is one of the most important parts in learning second language. Learning vocabulary, of course is very important, too. According to Knight
