She uses facts to support her claim so basically her claim is right because she has all the right evidence to back it up. She puts in her article, "There is an aspect of my Fiction that relates to thus-and-thus"—a speech filled with carefully wrought grammatical phrases, burdened, it suddenly seemed to me, with nominalized forms, past perfect tenses, conditional phrases, forms of standard English that I had learned in school and through books, the forms of English I did not use at home with my mother. (Paragraph 4)" She talks about books she has read and speeches she has read and talks about different English 's that she uses. The English she uses with her mom and the English 's she uses with her writing and everywhere else. Having sources and reading sources to support her main claim helps immensely when it comes down to persuading the

Since I am not regularly seeing what she is working on, we have not been able to do much direct application to what is going on in the classroom. She does try to fill me in on what they are working on and has so far seemed comfortable with what the class is doing. We have also been working on building Ashley’s vocabulary. In order to add new vocabulary in context, I have been reading Ashley high interest books with challenging vocabulary. We discuss the story and new words and review both content and language as we go.
One of the main differences between the two teaching styles is that the parent in the poem comes off very harsh when it comes to her technique of teaching her children while my parents were polite when it came to teaching me new things about life. Another difference between the two teaching styles is that the adult in the poem tried to micromanage the child's life, while my parents let me experience a lot on my own. I believe that her culture and language had a huge impact on her writing. In the first few lines she wrote about washing and cleaning the clothes and using rocks to dry the clothes. Also, a lot of the animals and dishes that were talked about were not from the United States but from her native country.
Throughout the poem Jordan uses repetition and in the oral performance uses her voice to enhance her message and feelings. The poem was written in a time where black people and women were dehumanized where those in power abused the power to gain more and those without power were continuously affected by it. Reading the poem and had an impact on me with the dictation of lexis, however all of these feelings were heightened when I listened to the oral performance. The poem starts of in the present tense “Even tonight and I need to take a walk” (Jordan 1) which gives a setting to the scene, in the opening few lines Jordan uses the repetition of “I” and “my” which made the poem for me more personal, the use of repetition in the opening part of the poem produced a deeper connection to the poem, repetition of the words placed emphasis and clarity of the words which came after “my body posture my gender identity my age…” (Jordan
She had given it to her in hopes that Didion would learn to keep herself entertained and maybe it would occupy her time and it would cut down on Didion whining so much. She reads her entries that she had written when she was only five years old and she realizes (and wonders why) she had written such ironic and random stories. Didion uses flashbacks like this one throughout her article to prove to the readers that keeping a notebook is not just a recollection of what happened during our day, but rather, anything that the writer wants to put
The Seamstress has started to be interested in the novels that Luo read for her and showed how she was changed through the new knowledge she has acquired. Luo believed that he could “transform” the “little mountain girl” by reading different kinds of novels. The evidence of this transform began in the change of her attitude towards education. At the beginning of the novel, the seamstress wasn’t really attentive towards education. However when Luo started to read her books hoping to “make her more refined and cultured”, Luo shares the magic of literature with the Seamstress.
According to the Poetry Foundation, an accredited website on poets and poetry, Dickinson’s high-notch analyzing skills enabled her to find self- expression via the interaction of pen and paper. For instance, the passing of Leonard Humphrey, the principal of the academy that Dickinson attended, greatly affected her due to their close relationship. In response “clearly suggests her growing poetic interest. She wrote Abiah Root” (“Emily Dickinson”) one of her first poems, which express the grievance she felt due to his passing. To Dickinson, poetry was a manner of self-expression, thus her attitude toward her subject needed to be extremely prevalent throughout the entirety of her writing, so the comparisons she made revealed the tone she felt toward the topic.
From the reader’s point of view, the intention of this article seems to be a ‘writing guide for beginners’ rather than an argumentative essay because her writing lacks evidence and credibility. Lamott continuously uses her personal experiences, mostly from “me and most of the other writers I know” to exemplify her arguments throughout the writing.
Adah is very talented with language. This is showed in the early chapters when she quotes Emily Dickinson’s poem in her narrative or her ability to spell backward. Adah did not speak much until she got her limp fixed. She likes to read and write her own poems when she was in the Congo. Due to Adah ability to play with words, she helped reveal a lot of the profound connotations.
I have always made a hobby of watching the world go by. In the same way, Liesel watches and waits for things to happen, predicting the unavoidable and preparing yourself for those moments is something I could relate to during this novel. Her love of words, the colourful way she describes situations reminds me of the clumsy sentences I used when I was ten. Just like Liesel, I sought out books and dictionaries to discover more words to add to my vocabulary. Learning how and when to use them turned into an adventure and the inner narrative became a picture of words instead of a written story.
