Every night, my mother scanned through this book, hoping to find a list of possible names. My name might have been Jonathon, but when my parents went back to St. Peter’s for her second ultrasound, they noticed that I was holding my two siblings up with my hands. This made her rethink my name as she now wanted my name to symbolize strength. After another month of researching,
The Outsiders is considered a cult classic and is typically assigned reading across the U.S. She always loved reading but did not like the books they had for young adults so she decided to write some herself. This paper is going to discuss expectation, description, comparison and review. The target audience for this book is teens and young adults making it a book chosen by middle school teachers for a class to read. So of course for most this book’s expectation was set
I then began to annoy my family because while scrolling through the television guide I could identify my favorite shows and they could no longer tell me the show wasn’t on. Once I reached grade school my love for reading was immense. The Geronimo Stilton series by Elizabetta Dami was my favorite and I owned roughly 30 of the books. During car rides, during dinner and even late at night under the bed sheets I would be nose deep in these adventurous stories. Once I finished the book I begged my mom to take me to Borders to pick another.
There are many reasons as to why, but all have a main principle, the original copy still exists for people to read. Although the more modernised movies may have changed the message to help draw in more people and make more money, the original text still exists and people can read that if they want the original meaning they can read the original. The new ones still contain the same core meaning only the way the meaning is conveyed was changed. Finally, the elements that were changed did not have a very big impact on the play as the modern versions are still used in schools to show the meaning of Macbeth and making it easier to understand for the students. For example the movie ShakespeaRE-Told Macbeth in the Kitchen, is used to show the meaning of Macbeth in a more understandable way for the
I do miss a lot of school because of sickness but I am going to try and go even when I don't feel good. Organization is important for academic success. Being organized is proven to lower stress. Organizing also makes it much easier to keep track of things. Organization is a huge problem for me.
Each one of our children has different interest, so we usually find ourselves reading two different books a night. Although we only have our daughter part time, when we do have her we try to encourage her to read to us rather than us read to her considering she is old enough to read on her own. Our two-year-old is always picking up books about tractors or cars, he loves to hear us read to him. I hope to pass my love of reading to each of my children and continue to find books myself to read and
I was in kindergarten when I developed the special hobby of reading. It was because of my mother sent me to special and advance studies. I voluntarily told my mom to let me enroll on that special program because I had nothing to do after school. Since my school was just across our old home, having a special class in the afternoon would really cause not much hassle or effort. Another factor that gave me the strength to love reading was because of my older sister.
Learning to look deeper into a close up was interesting because there are some directors that use close ups the way a baby wants a binky and then there are the director that use close ups so sparingly that when they do use it you can’t help but to remember the scene and the details in the scene. The perspectives in a film are rarely thought of as important or notable, as most films have the viewers peeping into the lives of those on screen and not being a direct part of it the way we would have been had it been a shakespearean play. For the most part the films watched in this class did the same thing we watched the characters on screen but were never a part of their journey or development. The term pillow shot was unheard of to me prior to this course, I remember the first time I heard of I thought is it a literal pillow they are talking about and wondering what it would or could represent. A pillow shot is simply a transitional shot that is shot to move from one scene to the next and is typically a nature shot, shot of a build, or a shot of some small detail/common place
A clear example is this: if you tell a group of teenagers that they have to prepare a school work with a very limited time, they are likely to suffer stress (negative emotion) and their heart rate increases. However, if you after show them a certain film (of love, happiness, fear, sadness ...) telling them that they won't have to deliver the work, those who are given the movie with positive emotions recover faster than negative. We see with this that the positive can reduce what affects us, making us feeling good. On the other hand, being a person who is emotionally positive every day, makes his life more prosperous by not having the presence of the negative. Isen (Barbara's partner) showed that
(Not passionate about ideas and books, just want the grade. JOB) Learning how to think also influences students to find what they are passionate about, that is more then grades. Without this passion, students cannot succeed as well as they want, and be happy. This lack of passion in elite student’s starts with a ‘mutual nonaggression pact.’ is created “so students want to do as little as possible. Professors are rewarded for research” (Deresiewicz 64).
Some classmates felt that his last shred of hope to keep him alive was his hatred for the party while others agreed that his love for Julia would help him from conforming back to the ideals of the party. When discussing what another classmates have found in class it has helped me to understand other points I might have overlooked in the novels we have read. I have improved from these activities by writing down other points and
