I was an avid reader by that time, and preferred books over people to keep me company. My parents encouraged my interest by taking me to the library every week and helping me pick books to read. The gradual exposure to the world of literature eventually lead me to write my own stories. One of my first experiences was a writer was producing my own interpretation of Cinderella after reading Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine, who put an interesting twist on the classic tale. Finding the concept intriguing, I set out to do the same.
Everyone has had at least one enlightening class that they’ll never forget. A class that, unlike so many others, truly teaches you about life, or in my case, mortality. Mr. Vindetti was my English teacher in junior high: a worldly and highly perceptive individual who expected the absolute best from his students. Junior high school is a blur, so I barely remember what I was taught throughout the years, but I still recall numerous lessons from Mr. Vindetti clearly. One day, after my grueling math class and my absurdly uninteresting history class, it was finally time for the one class I genuinely enjoyed, Advanced English.
I remember expressing some of my my thoughts in my journal such as how hard writing essays was and how challenging my math tests were. I also enjoyed telling about Mr. Anderson’s easy tests for history, and my oddly eccentric French teacher Mrs. Monacelli. To cope with the everlasting amount of stress and pressure I got, I wrote in my journal every single day of 6th grade. My journal became a source of hope, inspiration, and happiness for me as I went down the road through middle school. My journal was best friend.
She told him how she wants to learn how to read to know if the grave diggers buried her brother even though Hans only went to school until 4th grade. “The Grave Digger’s Handbook” leads to her learning how to read and write. After the bedwetting incident and Hans finding the book, Hans helps Liesel with writing by writing the ABCs and giving an example, for example “S” for sausmench. Every night Hans would read the book to her and this would help Liesel and Hans with their reading skills. When she went to school, she felt embarrassed because she was in a lower class for her age.
In the selecting of a topic for my rhetorical analysis, I was in search of something that I had little to no previous knowledge about and one that really intrigued me. One day during an english class, we were talking about different topics for our essay and my professor mentioned one about eating insects. This sounded very peculiar to me, enticing me to want to learn more about it. Also because it was a TedTalk and I had previous experiences in where I enjoyed watching them, it was the perfect choice. This is what led me to choose to write about Why not eat insects?
Rand taught herself to read and write before school (Motowski 153).When she started school she took German and French classes, but her favorite were math and logic. She also took American classes which inspired her political ideas. Throughout her teen years she spent a lot of time reading French magazines which inspired her to write as an adult (Motowski 153). She was hard on herself and was considered kinda anti-social: “I have few friends.”(Rompalske 4) Rand spent her summers traveling with her family but had to stop because of the communist movement. Once World War I started Ayn started to notice the effects on the Russian Government.
So that was kind of how the daily routine went for all of elementary. Every day after school we sat down together and worked on the school work that would always be giving me trouble whether it was a spelling test or some math homework. Most conversations went like “Your brother Erik can do it just fine, why can't you?” or “Everyone else in class understands this just fine, so that means you aren’t trying enough.” Eventually things started to click it started slowly at first like “Wow Isaac you did ok on this spelling bee.” my mother would say or “You did most of this homework by yourself?” I gradually became independent enough to do work on my own and only with occasional help from my mother or Erik my brother. Finally about the time I started middle school my mother's expectations didn’t go lower it was that I was able to meet them easier. So now when it seems like my mom doesn't expect much it’s because we share the same expectations for me to be responsible and successful and it's not something that needs a constant reminder or outside help, because they match my own
My writing extravaganza began in second grade when my world was changed, thanks to the teachings of Mrs. Clutter. The most distinct memories I hold from that year includes the colorful, giant list of homophones hanging on the wall, and the purple writing journals we kept throughout the year. The fire for writing that I developed in this class continued with me as I traveled to third grade and the rest of my elementary experience, but quickly died out when it came to middle school. Through a random app that I had learned about from my cousin, that fire easily rekindled and I was back to writing by eighth grade. These memories are just a minuscule fragment of the whirlwind of words that is my writing style.
Through Dual Enrollment English, I have learned how to write a well thought out paper while managing my busy schedule and have learned many lessons along the way. Dual Enrollment English 111 began with a pretest and it crushed me. The letter grade is not what crushed me but the weaknesses of my writing that it exposed to me. I was not aware of how unprepared I had been in being able write top-notch papers within a time limit. I decided it would be my goal to practice and excel at writing papers with efficiency.
In my seventh grade science course, we were given basic information about anions and cations, we learned how to use models to create chemical formulas, and we conducted several experiments. The only one of these experiments that I can remember in detail is when we were stationed at bunsen burners, given chemicals, and were told to find out what colors the chemicals burnt. The experiments we did were often more to keep us entertained and we were never truly explained all of the science behind
Book Addition to the Ninth Grade Reading Curriculum After spending the whole night with her childhood friend, Quentin “Q” Jacobsen, Margo Roth Spiegelman goes missing the next day. During the search, Q and his friends, Lacey, Radar, and Ben, learn more about Margo. This book is well-written, enjoyable to read, and shares common themes with other books. Paper Towns by John Green should be read by ninth graders because of common themes it shares with other books, like friendship, coming of age, and freedom. The theme friendship is in Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, as well as Paper Towns by John Green.
Nowadays, it is important to speak more than one language to be educated, to have friends and to get a good job. For example, before I came to the U.S. I only can speak Arabic which restricted me to communicate with people who can speak Arabic, but after I learned the English language I can communicate with most the people around the world also communicate with knowledge because the new language that I have learned changed the way that I was thinking. English language made me read more and more to be refined. As much as you read you become knowledgeable.
With waiting for the ball to drop, there was a new energy within the classroom. I had two other students ask to read the play instead of Invisible Man, and since I let Helena, I couldn’t deny them. The papers would be interesting to grade next week. “Okay kids, I know most of you have about finished Invisible Man and Raisin. So can anyone explain what a climax is and apply it to one of the books?” In comparison to before, the number of hands was a pleasant surprise.
I started my editing and publishing classes. Halfway through the semester, I was sitting through Pentateuch class when I had an epiphany: I loved my minor more than my major. I got excited about Advanced Grammar and Technical Editing, but I dreaded having to take Hermeneutics and Minor Prophets. So I pulled up the academic catalog on my laptop (yes, during class; at least it wasn’t PinterestFacebook). I found PWID because all the editing and publishing classes were inside the
I figured out then a year later to choose management. I still found myself struggling taking chemistry and biology. I than chose the management section. I did my research on the different jobs and I loved it. I then found myself love taking all of the business classes.
