Amy Tan is a writer who is fascinated by language in daily life. Amy starts aware of the different English she does use. It is a speech about her book and she had already given to half a dozen groups of people. But the main difference is her mother is there too. She realizes that it is perhaps the first time her mother had heard her give a lengthy speech using the Standard English that she learned at school and through books.
The first chapter book I ever read was Child Of The Mountain by Marilyn Sue Shank. I grabbed it off a shelf in the public library, checked it out, and read. I finished it quickly and that made me start reading pretty much any children's chapter book I could get my hands on. All through elementary school, teachers started assigning books. I actually read all of them.
The Outsiders Sequel When I turned in my essay, my English teacher looked at my work in surprise. He flipped through my 7 pages of writing, and then set it on his desk. He said I could leave for the day, and that he would grade it as soon as he could. It was almost four o’clock, and Darry would kill me if I didn’t come home by four thirty. He didn’t want anything to happen to me again.
We all have obstacles; we all face challenges and my challenge was with a learning disability that helped me become a better communicator. I entered my English 9 class as the cool breeze hit me from the open windows. I sat down quietly to my very first high school lesson. The teacher started talking about literary devices as she wanted us to answer some questions about them. I heard the sound of everyone’s pencils moving as I stared down at my own and thought of why it was not moving too.
About five years ago while I was attending high school in the ninth grade, my teacher really exerted my classmates and I into reading novels, short stories and chapter books. We read books such as, Tuck Everlasting, The Outsiders and Frederick Douglas. Until this day, out of every book I have ever read in my so far, so short life time; The Outsiders was my all time favorite. The setting in this story was mostly the streets, hang out spots and night life areas. There were two groups which were the Greasers and the Socs.
A twenty-minute systematic observation was conducted during reading. Andrew exhibited on-task behaviors 32% of the time and off-task behaviors 68% of the time. On-task behaviors included: worked with a partner; responded “Beverly Cleary” when the teacher asked him to tell her the title of the book they were reading; read out loud; answered comprehension questions on the story; asked the question “Do you have to get passes for all jobs?”; followed along in his book as his partner read out loud; sat on the couch when redirected; removed his necklace from his mouth when directed; read out loud, but made noises/moved back and forth/leaned back on the couch; turned the page as directed; returned to the couch after the teacher counted 3, 2…; listened as the teacher read out loud; responded appropriately when the teacher told him he had to finish the rest of the story; transitioned to the next activity; said “Oh Yeah” when the teacher informed him he was the exercise leader; and participated in the Everything is Awesome Noodle activity. Off-task behaviors included: rearranged his blue blanket as he held the book; moved back and forth on the couch; leaned forward/backward (multiple times); moved his hand through his hair; squirmed/fidgeted; reclined back with his legs on the edge on the couch, opened and closed them; moved his left hand in the air; placed his blanket over his torso/legs/head-entire body; got up and walked over to his partner (to see what page she was on); returned to the couch and placed his finger in his
They sat on the floor around Mrs. Sherwin with their social studies textbook. Mrs. Sherwin had them read over the boldfaced vocabulary words before they began reading. In my EDS class, my professor stressed the importance of vocabulary since vocabulary is one of the five big ideas of reading. Understanding vocabulary helps with students’ reading comprehension. Mrs. Sherwin started off reading and then called on students to read.
After a first long night unpacking, she sat in a small café right across the street and drank a cup of tea. A new day full of potential was ahead of her. There was just so much Priscilla could do. Today was her first day in Parsons University– School of Art and Design– where the new adventure began. She initiated her college degree in Art History with excitement attending her first 8:00 A.M. World History class.
She made us write an essay about a book call “ to kill a mockingbird”. When I finish reading the whole book I started doing my essay so I could turn it in the next day so she could grade it and give it back to me the following week. Monday came and we started class with a free write reflecting on how good we did on the essay. I wrote that I was confident that I was going to get a seventy on it. But when the teacher give it back to me I saw my grade and got surprises because it had a huge eighty nine percent with a circle around it and a smile face on top saying excellent job.
I was sitting at my desk with a pencil in my hand and ready for anything this pop quiz has to throw my way. As my teacher Mrs.Brown began to pass the pop quiz papers around I couldn 't help but be electrified because I knew I would pass this pop quiz. I open the book to the first page I felt a rush of nervousness take over my body. I was baffled by the questions presented in the book. I thought to myself "this is not what I studied last night".
