While traveling towards the path of seeping knowledge and analyzing critical ideals, we’ve become absent minded towards the components that gave us the ability to read. Since reading is always a part of our everyday routine, we have lost the idea that when it comes to learning how to read, we must start from the basics. From reading a case study, to reading a letter from a loved one, comprehension, phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and oral language are the six essential components of reading. Before a child develops the ability to read, they begin to develop comprehension. Comprehension can be defined as the ability to understand.
The Jungle, written by Upton Sinclair, is an American novel based on Lithuanian immigrants, Jurgis Rudkus and his wife Ona, coming into the capitalistic city of Chicago to seek an American Dream. The novel is based upon commercial fiction, literary fiction, and lastly propaganda. Jurgis and his wife planned on living a happy life in Packingtown with a job to support their family, but it did not sound as easy as it seemed for the couple.

Losing his job and being spent in jail for numerous times declines his American Dream.
Rick Moody is the author of “The Joy and Enthusiasm of Reading”, an article that gives examples of factors that influenced his way of thought about reading. He elaborates on open text and how he was taught tools from his prior teachers to better understand the text. Despite what critics have said, Moody insists that there will never be a right or wrong way to read a book. Moody illustrates reading through open text which focuses on individuality where every person has a different outlook and perception of life in this generation. Individuality is a product of being and making everything in your life your own.
Like Edmund Wilson says, “Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.” This quote gives the reader an idea of when one reads a book, it allows one to look at every little thing of a bigger world and that can open up their imaginations and ideas. By reading, one can recognize more about what others are thinking or feeling, enriches one’s imagination, which advantages them to socialize in a wider range. Chiefly, reading can make one think more about their country’s society. Reading allows one to understand deeply of what others are thinking or feeling, and develop their ability to imagine various ideas.
Creating a viable classroom reading environment that supports students’ intrinsic motivation calls for supporting their autonomy as well. This involves supporting their curiosity and interests in reading, offering them some control over reading activities, and allow for their decision making in setting learning goals. To contribute in increasing individualized intrinsic reading motivation, teachers (Ediger, 2001) can design classrooms that contain different library books (in order to meet all students’ interests in reading) for all students to be provided with opportunities to choose their individual books. Homes also play an essential role in enhancing students’ intrinsic reading motivation through making reading materials available. Indeed, to build the grounds for which teachers can foster their learners’ intrinsic reading motivation, the following strategies (Hunter, 2005) can be of practical application in classrooms.
“A&P” by John Updike is written through the eyes of a young grocery store clerk named Sammy. While working, a group of girls walk into the store, wearing their bathing suits, causing all the workers to drool over them, but when they come to check out the manager Lengel tells them that what they are wearing is against policy. As the girls leave, embarrassed, Sammy courageously quits his job due to this incident, hoping to impress the girls, but as he walks out of the A&P he realizes that they are gone. Post-Structuralism, also known as Deconstruction, is a school of literary criticism where the reader “focuses on the inherent, internal contradictions in language and interpretation” (deconstruction).
Reading: It is Worth It Reading has been a part of human interaction for thousands of years.

However, many attempts have been made to repress this concept of free press.

Rhetorical Analysis of "How to Read and Write" (Frederick Douglass) During an era of slavery, Jim Crow Laws, and no hopes of abolition, Frederick Douglass invites his audience into a world where slavery enters the kindest of souls, and purifies the soul to have nothing but hatred and anger. In the empowering narrative, “Learning to Read and Write”, Douglass enunciates the cruelty of slavery and its pervasive impacts, with the help of Douglass’ vast journey to ultimately gain his thinking skills through reading and writing. Douglass expresses these actions with elaborate metaphors and immaculate details that keeps the audience on their toes to witness what happens next. Growing up as a slave, Douglass became curious about the art of reading
The Synopsis that I gathered from Haas and Flowers’ “Rhetorical Reading Strategies and the Construction of Meaning” was none the less another interesting read. Experienced readers might come to understand that both reading and writing can be “context-rich, situational, and have constructive acts”. Though a large number of students may find reading and writing more or less to be an exchange of valued or non-valued information. Continuing on, multiple studies that have been conducted have also found that on average 77 percent of experienced readers tend to use content strategies to expand their knowledge of the reading. These strategies usually include vigorous annotations of the reading/writing that have been shown to improve the readers/writers’ comprehension of the material.
The ability to read and write has been a sign of intelligence and superiority for centuries. Frederick Douglass, a former slave and abolitionist in the 1800s, proves this remarkably when he wrote in a well written essay, “Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.”. At the time this phrase was written very literally in the sense of him escaping to freedom with the help of his literary ability but, this statement can still be applied today in a more figurative respect. Seeing as at the time Douglass wrote the essay roughly 12% of the world could read or write compared to in today's time a little over 80% of the world is literate, his statement on freedom would be more applicable in the advancement in reading and writing rather than just the basic knowledge. The people of today can gain freedom through literacy through giving an outlet of expression, understanding, and curiosity.
