This fear followed me all the way through high school and to be perfectly honest, I still hate speaking in front of the class. I would do what I had to and force myself to read the assignments given to me in English class. I remember feeling different like there was something wrong with me for not wanting to read. I felt imprudent for not excelling in reading and writing, watching my
I did not take anything serious and I loved to mess around. I can remember the certain classes that I just went haywire in and was a basically a crazy maniac. Doing homework was not that big of a deal to me and I loved to push it aside. I could have cared less about studying and it was not a big deal to me. I now feel bad for my teachers because I now understand I was a real pain in the bahookie.
but I start working very energetically. But later on I collect more data and become unable to organize thoroughly. Additionally, I spend more time on data collection inadvertently and at the end I have to plagiarize.” Many students avoid working hard because of laziness. They remain lethargic while working on assignments and thesis.
Lastly I learned to be responsible for asking for help. Asking for help when I needed it was hard for me whether it was work or a lesson I did not understand. I am a shy person always has been always will be, I used to avoid asking teachers anything when I needed help. I did not want to seem like I was not smart or I wanted help but I was too afraid to ask.
He is hesitant to begin writing assignments, requires repeated instructions and intense guidance, and constant reminders to focus on the assignment. He is hesitant to write anything, even if it’s scratch paper to complete math problems. He is very focused when instructed to read silently, or engage in a class read. Literacy doesn’t seem to scare or affect Jorian, it is the pen-to-paper interaction that makes him uneasy. In or out of school, this seems to be the same ill feelings toward writing.
In my childhood, I was curious and full of energy. I was in an age where I was being to explore and learn new things, and most of the times my curiosity lead me into serious trouble. It was double the trouble when I include my sister in the picture. We were the worse when we were around six or seven years old. My aunt used to compare us to a tornado because we were always causing chaos and breaking something around her house.
Reading, I can honestly say was not at the top of my priorty list. I actually hated to read especially in school when asked to read aloud, it wasn’t that I could not read, it was something I took no pleasure in doing. I would always leave reading assignments to last. I just really disliked reading. I think I rather writer than read.
I am a quiet person in these situations as it is but this week especially as I had a lot of things going on outside. As the teacher asked me why I was quiet and he said he saw something happening inside me, I was remembering times I tried to speak and got told to shut up. I got fed up and stopped trying. I also had a lot on my mind. I was afraid to go to class as I was already close to tears.
I have always hated writing about myself, and I always dreaded assignments in school where I had to describe myself. I always wanted to avoid doing these assignments because I did not want to sound narcissistic, or self-absorbed. I dislike people like that now, because I used to be one of those people. It took many lessons learned before I humbled myself; I am still learning to humble myself today with recent experiences I have had. Although I hate to write about myself, I have always liked to reflect on myself.
I’ve never been great with words, I could have this amazing idea but for some reason I could never get my point across in a meaningful way. My history with literacy goes a little something like this … growing up I didn’t have the best education to start off and this had a huge impact on me. I believe a reader and writer is truly shaped by their adolescent learnings and this was an area I really feel like I lacked, Although I never felt very good at reading or writing there were a select few novels and topics that I really enjoyed writing about. I always dreaded English class, not because I don’t like it or because I wasn’t interested in the book we were reading for class at that time. It had more to do with how low my confidence was with reading
The challenges that I faced last semester within this classroom was mainly home reading and writing, such as reading How to Kill A Mockingbird. This was a challenge for me to read over the break and weekends because frankly I’m not very fond of reading fictional things and things that have really no general interest towards myself. I just didn’t want to do the reading, which is a huge factor on my part, it’s not the wisest decision I’m aware of that, to not do assignments because I find them useless to me, but it’s hurting my grade which is having the biggest impact on me.
The reasons I disliked English changed for various reasons over the years. All through elementary school I disliked it because I wasn’t good at comprehending the things they would give us to read and I struggled with putting things into words. Although my sister helped in a huge way by reading me books and getting me to appreciate literature. By middle school I enjoyed reading a book every now and then but despised classes because the teachers forced me to read books I didn 't want to read and I was still poor in writing skills that I hadn’t taken time to learn the previous years. By my freshman year my main hobby was reading books although it wasn’t until my junior year that I actually started getting involved and asking my teachers how to do things the correct way.
I also don’t like if the class is too easy. If in math the only math problems we get are easy I get bored and I feel like I shouldn’t even be doing them. as you can see I like to be challenged through doing
My note taking skills have also further improved as a result of the reading we did for class. In my previous school, writing in the books was something that was frowned upon. We were expected to jot down notes in a notebook, which ended up breaking the flow of the reading and it was more difficult than just highlighting a section and writing a quick note. Because of this rule I did not take notes about the book I was reading very often, thus I did not learn how to properly annotate my books. I now keep character lists in my book as well as highlighting possible foreshadowing, symbols and motifs, and different literary
