Learning to read and write was not an option; it was a requirement. “School will be what makes you succeed in life,” my parents and educators would say. I did not realize how hard it would be to read and write; however, it came natural to me, in the beginning. Struggling many times, several people did not believe in me; however, that never stopped me from wanting to gain more knowledge as I grew older. There has always been more positive people to motivate me whenever I needed inspiration.
Just because they are in their senior year teachers should see if that person is capable to read spell or write. Another thing is the students who puts their effort into school and still are not able to understand the subject then that will be different. For example, students with special disorders are the ones that will fall into that category. One of the many night students that sherry teaches said “I was a good kid and didn’t cause any trouble, so they just passed me along even though I didn’t read well and couldn’t write” (1). This example, shows that instead of the teachers using a method that gives her the power that she needs, students do as they please without much effort.
Nicholas was soon under Miss.Hurd’s spell. Miss.Hurd taught the class how to put out a newspaper, skills he honed during his next 25 years as a journalist. Soon i asked the principal to transfer me to her english class as well. In her class she drilled them on grammar until he finally began to understand the logic and structure of English language. Miss.Hurd assigned them stories to read and discuss one day after discussing how writers should write about what they know she assigned them to essay from their own experience.
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.
The difference between these books Malala lived better and was allowed to go to school, but Parvana was not allowed. Also the Breadwinner is Fiction and Malala is Non fiction. Book Review:“I read this book for one of my elementary literacy classes and fell in love with it. The story is one of trials, sorrow, and strength. I think it 's a great book for students to read so they can realize that life is very different outside of the US.
I don 't exactly remember the day learned to read, I guess learning to read came hand in hand with learning to write, slowly. I remember having to copy words off of a blackboard onto paper, then re-write those words over and over again until I not only memorized how to write them but also how to pronounce them. I remember every Friday was library day in elementary school and my friends and I would always fight to be first in line to get to the sports section because we never wanted to have to read anything "boring". I enjoy reading for pleasure but I dislike reading for information, most likely because I have a difficult time learning something just by reading it, I am more of a hands on learner. I enjoy the Killing series by Bill Orielly,
Test make us like zombies. Every year we take around 1-3 STAAR exam 's depending on if you passed previous ones or your grade level. After a day that we are stuck in a class taking a test that gives result 's based on what you learned throughout the year, we the student 's, are too tired physically and mentally to deal with anything and that includes homework. We do not need to take test, we need to learn to grow up to be well-rounded adults, to be prepared for society and all of its forthcoming. We need to learn and understand what they are trying to educate us on so we will not be doomed to repeat the same mistakes that society has already passed through.
Everyone involved in our life has helped raise and teach us about almost everything as they all played a role in our lives. But how exactly did they play a role in our lives? In my opinion, they educated us on things that our time in school did not. In school, they teach us the same four subjects each year: English, Math, Science, and Social Studies. However, they are not teaching us things that we would have to learn from experience later in our lives.
Lastly I got to volunteer for OSU SMILE which is STEM based curriculum for majors in science, math, engineering, and innovation. I volunteered for a morning working with middle schoolers who were proclaimed less likely to go to college. The experience was inspiring seeing kids who could do math much better than I could develop ideas and problem solve to real world issues. Many of these kids come from minority groups that traditionally don 't go to college and working with them was invaluable. This project open my eyes to the unique struggles that each minority groups face.
Perhaps it can be argued that a standardize reading curriculum would give the government a handle on teaching students what they would need to know, such as in "Multicultural Literature and the Children 's Literary Canon" by Kira Isak Pirofski (Source 3) where it argues that students don 't have enough understanding of multicultural literature. But even as this source cites a study in which it was found that children have a "longstanding lack of multicultural literature", it 's likely that many children have read much more diverse stories than they realize. Growing up with my Grandmother I never realized that many of the old mother hen stories she used to read to me- such as "Brother John", "The Ugly Duckling", and "The Boy Who Cried Wolf"- were widely varied in
