She is a teaching artist that goes to Malcolm X High School to teach the students a play. Ms. Sun, in all actuality, is trying to do more than just help her students learn a play. She wants the kids to “do the exact opposite of what people expect” (1370), and be able to prove those people wrong that think that they are destined to a life of crime and poverty. Many of her students do succeed and continue to surprise her. Unfortunately, Ms. Sun’s effort doesn’t rule out for
Ahh...yes Shakespeare, considered to be one of the most creative and inspiring playwrights known to mankind or...is he? For many years, Shakespeare has been known for many famous plays and portrayed as a genius in the Elizabethan era. To most people when the topic of Shakespeare is brought up, the first thing that comes to mind is “Hey isn’t that the guy who wrote Romeo and Juliet?”. Romeo and Juliet is known worldwide and is taught as a part of the ninth grade curriculum. Shakespeare’s literature should not be included in the ninth grade curriculum because students in it have a hard time understanding the content and most freshmen have little to no interest.
High school students, especially the marginalized, should read Shakespeare’s plays to engage the mind, to relate to those plays, and to learn to move through life more effectively. Heads resting against the desk and calm, even breathing lead people to believe Shakespeare’s plays all contain tedious storylines and plots; on the contrary, the brain thinks
If “we imagine no worse of [the actors]”(5.1.213), then they might be the best themselves. Furthermore, imagination also removes fear of the unknown, for when the ladies think that the sword is not real. Another instance is when Puck removes the fear of the audience by saying if they have been scared by the act, think of it “no more yielding but a dream”(5.1.419). Reality may be filled with anxiety and discomfort, but imagination and deception are what make the unknowns in life comfortable enough to
I believe that I am good with the love aspect of plays. I think I can play a loved struct man who struggles to get a woman out of his head pretty well. I would like to see how the emotional parts would have gone after deaths of Moritz and Wendla. It is a challenge that would make the whole process fun. I would also like the spotlight rather than a supporting
If I looked in one corner, I would miss action in the other and vice versa. I was fairly engaged in the play, because I was able to relate to it. I also liked when the director came from the audience, it made me feel like I was taking a sneak peek at a rehearsal of a production. The playwright seemed to be attempting to make a lighthearted statement about theatre. He seemed to have been making a point to say that it is not easy to deal with people in theater and sometimes life happens and people make mistakes, but, the show goes on.
Becoming an Eagle Scout, an athlete, and staying on top of my school work kept me busy so I wouldn’t continue to think about my affinity for the saxophone. Going into my junior year, I heard a new Broadway director was to become the head of our Performing Arts Department. The disparity in time between then and my saxophone days was long. Girls became a greater interest, and I was inspired to join the drama club. The club met everyday after school, and after a few days I realized it didn 't have much in common with the girls.
English classes were never my best topic, but you’d think if it is a class that is the word of the language you speak, how hard could it be. Well for me it’s super hard because I can’t comprehend very well, I hate reading so much I barely do it, and the only way I would actually read a book is if I was willing to get into it. What I mean by that is that there will be that one book that I read and as I’m reading it I’ll imagine everything I’m reading as if it came true. But like if I get assigned a book and I have a do date to read it chances are I won’t read it because that won’t mae me want to get into it. Overall I should really start improving my english
I also did horrible in the tests, but I was able to push through that and I managed to pass the class with a B. My weakness this year was probably not having enough sleep. I get cranky when I don’t get enough sleep, and I realized I can’t focus when I’m in class. My strength this year was probably becoming more organized and setting a specific schedule for myself everyday. Since I have to work, I need to make specific time for my homework.
She 's also kind-hearted. She is my choice to illustrate the elements of character because the characters in the show are complex, and she 's my favorite in the show, or maybe out of any show at the moment. That 's biased because I 'm in the middle of watching it, which MIGHT be the reason I missed something or got something wrong about her. 2.Protagonist:Jimmy Chance from "Raising Hope." Jimmy Chance is in general pretty unlucky.
Should shakespeare be taught in high school “To live too die, to live again,” these words you will very much know if you have read romeo and juliet since this is what is said in the book and is acted in so many ways. Shakespeare in all of it’s complicated words and twist in the plot makes it difficult to follow along with what is happening. This is what makes shakespeare a desired author in reading in english class, but many people are starting to realize that shakespeare may actually not be helping students, but this theory is of course only in their opinion. If you were to ask me I would say that shakespeare should continue to be taught throughout high school. Romeo and Juliet is as you know very challenging to read and follow along too but in my opinion this is what helps high school students develop good reading.
What is/are your approach/approaches to this lesson, please explain your approach? Teaching the lesson on characters viewpoint, I used the bottom-top approach to help students understand what they were looking for when describing the viewpoint of a character. When starting the lesson, I had the student explain to me what is a character and how can the reader know who is the main character. Once students were able to define a character, we changed the discussion to thinking of how every character is different. Students were able to successfully describe to why characters in a story each character is acts or thinks different.
When the audience can tell when a speaker is deriving their sources from their research accurately, this can show the audience that the speaker has a certain level of expertise. Give examples of the way speakers address pathos. There are several methods to how speakers address pathos. Speaker utilize words and metaphors relevant to the idea he/she is trying to express to produce emotions in the audience. They can also choose to demonstrate illustrations and strong examples to the audience to add emotion to the logic.
What similarities do you share?” The idea is to relate The Outsiders to students’ lives for students to become more engaged in the reading and maintain the novel’s events by relating events, characters, etc. to students’ lives. IPTS 1C relates to this performance activity by how the competent teacher relates students’ lives and development into a lesson. I learned prior knowledge and incorporating students’ lives into a lesson greatly impacts student learning. Performance Activity 23: Observe and record how the teacher manages the classroom.
Ben had trouble with writing when he was a kid and was made fun of a lot because of this. Ben says, “Not until college did the idea of actually being an author creep into my head. An English professor called me in after class to comment on an assignment I had written. He told me my grammar skills were those of a fifth grader. Fearfully, I asked if I should drop the class.
