Additionally, I would say that my essay 's quality is poor because of the lack of analysis, the lack of organization, and the grammatical errors. The examples that I have mentioned are what I believe I need to improve on the most because it has been occurring throughout most of my writing. However, in this essay, the textual evidence and examples are what I think I did well
Slaves were not supposed to be able to read or write and this made it hard. His mistress always got mad anytime she saw him reading. It was hard for him to accept the things he had read since they gave him more details about his race and what he was going through. Douglass learning how to read and write caused him to deal with his readings emotionally and mentally. Alexie thought that him learning how to read made him smart and he was very proud of doing so.
My feelings toward writing aren 't good nor bad. Writing is something i have had difficulty with in my past.I have no problem brainstorming ideas on what topics to write my assignments on, even if i am given a prompt, but I do have difficulty with sitting down and planning my work.I always find myself getting stuck.So I almost never take the time out to plan out my ideas i come up with.My choice in words always tend to make my assignments sound unripe.I agree in my past that i have been lazy when writing and reading that was before i realized my child like writing would not get me far in ninth grade.All of This has lead me to receving grades that i knew i could do much better than.Constantly being discouraged about my grades in english, I
This semester I read a total of seven books. Last semester I read the same amount of books as I did this semester. The hardest book for me to read was Cover of Snow by Jenny Milchman. This book was difficult for me to read because it was a genre that I am not used to reading. I also thought this book was difficult to read because it uses dense details that were hard to understand.
Therefore, when it comes to writing, my self-esteem is low, and this causes me to procrastinate and put off the writing assignment until the very last minute. I do the very minimal when it comes to writing, just enough to meet the requirements. My knowledge about writing has increased this semester and this has helped me. Writing is something that I do not enjoy very much, but it is something that I am working on to show more interest and make it fun. Since, I do not find writing interesting this makes me procrastinate.
Even though a lot of people believe that Jeannette is not a good school, and that they do not teach us the necessary components to get us to learn, just like in Sherman Alexie's reading, but we have shown people that they are wrong, and that we have some of the best kids in the school around the area. I would have never thought that having my dad read to me would get me to the point i am right now with my literacy experience, and that I would still love reading to this day, having the book collection that I do now. I love reading, and I wish more children nowadays would get into reading as kids use to
The Joy Luck Club was a very hard read for me. I did not follow or comprehend what I was reading most of the time and I’m not going to lie, I had to Shmoop most of it. After getting through the whole book I appreciate the message between mothers and daughters that it is trying to convey but I still did not enjoy the book to its full extent. I did not enjoy the book for two reasons, its sequencing, and the fact that I did not relate to most of it but I did enjoy how real it was. The first reason I hate the Joy Luck Club was the sequencing of the book.
You can find every book or source that you need online in this day. Now, we aren’t as serious as they are in the book about reading and censorship, but now parents are complaining about books like Of Mice and Men, and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, because of the language that is used. People need to read these books, so that they learn the history, and it should make them uncomfortable because it was not a good time in history and they need to learn about how racist and terrible it was for some
One out of the three weaknesses is organizing ideas. Whenever I am caught up in the moment, I tend to lose track of organization in Writing. The second weakness is not being specific about my topic enough for the readers to understand what my paper is mostly about. My third and final weakness in English is punctuation. Every time I type or write, I tend to miss out most of the punctuation in my paper.
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
I take breaks which add more time to write a paper. My biggest problem is procrastination. I spend so much time thinking about ideas for a paper, and getting distracted that adds on more time writing. Another reason I hate writing papers is thinking about what to discuss while writing. I hate writing because I lose my strain of thought when it comes to writing a paper.
Personally writing essays are just boring, and that makes it even harder to write a good one, it’s like pulling teeth. The more I write the better I am becoming at writing a great essay. Spelling and proper punctuation has always been a major issue in my writing. Failing to properly check my spelling and grammar sounds like common sense, but for some reason I sometimes forget to use spell check after writing and hit the send button
Finally I chose to put Cradle and All by James Patterson as my hardest book because frankly I did not understand it. I am trying to read more difficult novels, but I think I chose one a little too far outside my comfort zone. The plot is understandable but the language the author uses rather difficult for me to read. To sum it up, these books are all good choices and I would recommend them, but sometimes I just have to deal with what I can
Mirror Mirror, Lie to Me The reflection tells no tales, no lies and is not my friend. The bald truth is that I struggle with writing. I struggle getting my thoughts together in a cohesive understandable and organized direction. In my head, I can see my writing as a beautiful, living, and breathing work, but expressing my vision into words is painful and awkward. For example, in my essay, Writing: Just Spit it Out Already, the visual sarcasm drips from the pixels but it is confusing and has no definitive path.
Since I was little reading was a struggle for me. Which caused writing to be difficult for me as well. Teachers and my parents doing everything they could to make reading and writing and overall learning easier for me; however, all this extra help I did not like. Help consisted of eye therapy, doing extra outside of school, and special help in
