She wanted to take placement exams for math, and english, but the front desk person only asked about the english exam. He said she should call somebody and not email them. She didn’t like idea because she couldn’t do any spell-check or editing to the words. Through this story you can’t put yourself down because of others and frustration. Just because you can’t
She handled the scene better than I thought she would have, but I did not agree on the decision she made. She decided to “I’ll go to his class, I think, and tell his teacher he was sick this morning. That he’ll take the test tomorrow” The scene should have taken place where it did because if she made a different decision she would have caused more problems than when she said “you better run!” The story felt like it made the plot better because it made the story feel like it could actually happen in real life. The scene felt like it belonged in the story. The story would change without this scene.
How could she write about such a provocative topic in a mature and professional way? The liberal stories and poems were her biggest struggle in her Effective Writing course. But, as Mary Anne says, “Mama didn’t raise no quitter.” She embraced the new ideas and information she learned at college and sought to incorporate it all in her writing. Mary Anne loved being about to write more creatively instead of sticking to textbook five-paragraph essay format. She felt less anxious and crammed while writing papers.
As soon as I found out, I asked her if she wanted me to try and help her out. She was very uneasy about the idea of getting help, because she afraid of being made fun of. I started helping her and she started to improve right away. The next year she did care about her classes so I tried to get her to care again but it was no use she just gave up. In college I could be a tutor and help clear the fog away from the brains of some of the students to have them get the grades they want to obtain.
She took the course not knowing the tedious work that was yet to come. Four Statistic classes were required to get her PHD. LeeAnn gradually started to do poorly during her first semester Statistics class and eventually was failing. However, LeeAnn’s master advisor told her that if she failed the Statistics class that she would not get her PHD, so she powered through and turned her ‘F’s’ into A’s.
They coincidentally met again after high school, and Sonia saw all the poor choices Norma had made in her life. Norma and Sonia had agreed to meet again but Sonia knew she would never agree to agree again. At one point in her life she had admired Norma, but after finding out what type of person she had become she regretted her thoughts. The first reason Sonia had admired Norma was because she was perfect. When Sonia needed help with an algebraic question her teacher was not much help to so she relied on Norma.
In the narrative “Grace Is A Gift” Laura Durham talks about how in the third grade her teacher showed her grace. She was told if she didn’t bring her spelling test at the end of that week that she wouldn’t be able to participate in the activities that the other kids were doing. That Friday she forgot her spelling test but her teacher had still let her participate because how much of a good student she was. The meaning of the story is that grace is a gift and that you should be thankful for it and not take it for granted because it’s not everyday that you are shown grace on things like turning in homework late. In the narrative Laura helps us understand what her point was by talking about her emotions.
Perhaps it is fate” (463). This starts off the beginning of Francie’s writing career and ironically, even though she tried to eschew from writing while attending college, she still ends up becoming one. Even though Moore wrote this story’s plot in a non-traditional way, she was still able to make it a great story, but when Francie tries to do the same thing, she is ironically lambasted for trying a difficult approach and is told by her English professor “Much of your writing is smooth and energetic. You have, however, a ludacris notion of plot” (463). As the story progresses, readers are able to see another ironic point in which Francie thinks she is an unsuccessful writer when Moore writes, “Later on in life you will learn that writers are merely open, helpless texts with no real understanding of what they have written and therefore must half believe anything and everything that is said of them” (466), but from an outside perspective, she is seen an accomplished writer, “Sooner or later you have a finished manuscript more or less.
Be Yourself “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” These words by Eleanor Roosevelt mean that you can be who you want to be and people can only make feel ashamed about it if you let them. Her words reflect well on my story because I felt this way my freshmen year of high school. My first year of high school was already nerve-wrecking because I didn’t know anybody so I was trying to make friends. I didn’t want to stand out and be the girl everyone talks about so I stayed silent. I learned towards the end of my freshman year and the start of my sophomore year that I should just be myself.
This quote shows how Janie regained herself after that horrible relationship. Before she wanted to be free and to do things she wanted to do but she couldn’t because Jodie wouldn 't let her. This quote connects to the thesis and topic
Students like Eve are not receiving the proper education they are required to have to graduate, but they found a loophole in order to receive their diploma without learning anything: participation points. Teachers should limit the weight of participation and effort grades so students stop passing classes when they do not learn anything.
Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt is a great book. It is filled with everything you love about a book such as drama, comedy, romance, action, mystery, sorrow and after your done reading the book your left with a lot of questions some I’m going to answer today. The Ending of the Book I didn’t like the ending of the book because I thought that Winnie should have drank from the spring when she was seventeen and married Jesse. I also thought the book should have been longer because I wanted to know what happened to the Tucks after they helped Mae escape jail and what happened to Winnie after she chose not drink the water from the bottle Jesse gave her. The ending of the book was sad when Winnie died and Tuck went to her grave and saw her.
There is an article that helped me learn to truly revise my essays, the title is, “Revision Strategies of Student Writers”, it is by Nancy Sommers. It is about different strategies students can use to revise their paper. She stated in her paper that for many students the idea of revision makes them uncomfortable and can lead to them not spending very much time working on it. She found that the students were never taught how to truly revise their essays (Sommers 380-382). After reading and
