The reason I want a C is because my mom never wants an F or a low D in my grade book. She never expects me to get straight A’s and B’s but that’s why I want a C. I’m not always gonna pass every class with a C, because every class I take I always have trouble with the beginning semester. The reason for that is I never like my teachers at first, then I get to
As a child I never really enjoyed writing but reading was very enjoyable. Despite my current writing skills, I never really enjoyed the task. I’ve always loved to copy others penmanship and draw, but when it came to organizing my thoughts about a given topic I struggled to completely express myself. At a very young age I began to read while in daycare. I then began to annoy my family because while scrolling through the television guide I could identify my favorite shows and they could no longer tell me the show wasn’t on.
Having this issue, I got put into an “extra help” reading class. This class didn’t amuse me, it actually made my day worse every time I had to go. Having this class made me dislike reading even more. The teacher made me read books I didn’t want to, which took it to another level. Being in this class for almost the whole year really opened my eyes, it made me want to
As a young reader and writer, there are many milestones to be crossed in order to evolve within literacy, and for me personally, the most impactful milestone to be obtained was discovering my passion of reading novels, particularly in the time of my later elementary school years. As a math minded elementary student, there was little english work that I would find myself fully engaged in, however, that had all changed by the time I had reached Mrs. Cain’s fourth grade class. Each day, Mrs. Cain would read aloud Blue, a children’s novel
Reading was my only solace from the realities of struggling in school and not having many friends. When my reading addiction persisted into high school, I started to realize the severity of my actions, and how failure in high school was not an option. I took it upon myself to give up this obsession. Of course, I never expected my withdrawal to be easy, but I understood that the rewards would be worth it. Initially, I was always cranky because books were all I could think about.
“The other Rose apparently didn't do very well, for I was placed in the vocational track, a euphemism for the bottom level.”. Rose and his family were unware of the scores being switched, and they didn’t realize what this meant for Rose and his future. The school should have taken action on this problem by switching the scores back and placing the two children in the programs they tested into originally. This connects to Rose’s main idea by showing that the children were overlooked, and that the school was not prepared for this situation to
When Doctor Warren, the headmaster of Whitehill, talks to Eli’s parents, he is uncomfortable, so it says in the text, “‘Good, good,’ said Doctor Warren absently. He fidgeted looked again in the direction in which Eli had disappeared.” Doctor Warren sent the letter to Eli’s address so he did not have to tell Eli and his parents in person that Eli did not make it into Whitehill. But when Doctor Warren has to tell Eli’s parents Eli did not get into Whitehill, he fidgets nervously. Under those circumstances, Eli’s father, Doctor Remenzel decides- “‘I’m going to see how quickly people can change their minds around here’” Later Doctor Remenzel tries to talk to the chairman of the board to convince them to get Eli into Whitehill, but Doctor Remenzel fails and goes back to Sylvia and Eli defeated. Eli managed to make it harder on Doctor Warren, Doctor Remenzel, Sylvia, the chairman of the board, and himself just because he ripped up the letter of notice and didn’t tell his parents who had to find out, the hard way.
I had started to prove my teacher wrong. I was doing very well in every subject, particularly in English and writing. I have always loved to read, but writing was (and is) a challenge for me. When I was impressed by a novel, or very interested in a particular topic, my teacher would assign a paper or essay to summarize what I had learned. I also had an interest in history and started reading many books and materials on early American history.
My freshman year continued with much confusion. The only reading that I was doing then was just reading Fanfiction, but those stories are just written by kids like me, with the same english skills as me. I found it extremely entertaining, but nothing about it was making me a better reader. I just needed to read more books that would challenge me. Reading is not my favorite activity.
She would tell me to read out loud to my brother and sister. I never wanted to because I knew I would not understand or remember what I read. After I would read a couple of pages my mom would stop me and ask me questions about what I had just read. She would ask what happened, why did it happen, and what the result was at the end. If I did not understand we would go over it again.
There was one book in particular that I loved to check out, and was another one of my favorites the book was Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst. I could say that in middle school was when I decided to focus more in reading and I also realized that reading was very important. I realized that reading gave me life and helped me escape from any kind of problem I was having. I remember having several hard times and I remember grabbing a book and reading until falling asleep. Reading has always made me feel better.
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.
With this information provided in this article, they still think that the rules will not work for the students and some school system still wanted to know if the Common Core Standards will be used during the academic year. As of Mississippi’s education system, they are using the Common Core Standards, but the teachers, parents, and students are still upset about the standards they are using in the school system. Some education system has turned into a battlefield about the standards because they do not want to change their standards because students are still having a problem with the standardize tests. The school system using these standards will take out all of the fun in teaching and
This I feel is the reason I hated literacy until high school. In high school I was assigned to a Sarah Schuette, who was my case manager in the rescue room in high school. She is the reason I started loving to read and write. With her support and encouragement I was able to do any class in high school that I wanted, she made me take a writing class and a individualized reading class, which grew my love for reading and writing. I love to read books that I will learn from, I read a lot of books about horses as they are a big part of my life.
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.
