Having to read in front of the class as a child was my worst nightmare, my only fear was mispronouncing the really big words. Unfortunately, the shortage of books in our household I do believe that caused my poor reading skills and my dislike for books. Although my reading skills are not the best I always try to read a little here and there to enhance my
So I did my best to try and show that I didn’t need the extra help like some others did, but all my hard work went in vain and I was never able to get out of the class. I began to feel as if my writing wasn’t good enough and I began to slack on my writing and reading. And by the time I got into middle school, I wasn’t as enthusiastic about literacy as a once
The frustration and pain of failing takes its toll on struggling readers and slowly it was defeating my son. Research suggests that the single greatest factor in helping struggling readers read better more exposure to reading. However, in my experience struggling readers do not particularly enjoy reading and defiantly do not want to do extra reading in their free time. I know from personal experience with my own child it was extremely difficult to get him to try doing extra reading at home without starting a huge fight. It is heartbreaking to watch your child cry over trying to read and tell you they are “too
Another reason, on why I’m telling you this is because I experienced and seen my peers around myself being tired during class or break. Fatigue is not an option for us if we keep having loads of work which leads to decrease of amount of time for leisure and lack of sleep. If we don’t have enough time to ourselves how are we able to focus on our education while most of us will be too exhausted, hoping to go back home and take a great deal of
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,
When a person or multiple people read go through my notebooks when I turn my back also cause me to be exceedingly distrusting, and I practically never let my supplies out of my sight just so other people can’t dig through them, although I became aware that this happened more in Elementary school than Junior High, but I am still anxious about others sifting through my sketchbook.
When I look back in my life, I remember failing many of my literacy tests. All throughout middle school I had a really hard time understanding poetry, novels, and even short stories. I would study really hard in order to grasp the topic and thought I understood it really well. However, when I went to go take the test I would fail and have to retake it. Back then, I never would have thought I would get good grades in any english course.
He grew up not paying attention in class and getting into trouble. He felt like a constant target for is illiteracy. Once in jail, he had gotten ahold of a university textbook and began teaching himself. I’d say that I am also still in that phase where I am learning to read and write because I know I am not perfect at it. In that way, I relate to C.H.
Transcripts My freshman and sophomore years I did not do so great. Mainly in English, Math, and Science. I believe that I earned those poor grades because I wasn’t trying my hardest in those subjects, and I wasn’t paying attention in those classes. Once my father and grandmother pointed out that my bad grades will affect my future, and my ability to get a decent job I began paying more attention in all my classes, and started trying harder. Although I admit that I messed up in my past years and I have earned some unappealing grades my junior year but I can say I have tried my hardest.
In middle school I never had good grades I was always the student who did not understand the lesson. During this time I would get so frustrated i would just give up and not even try. From the beginning of 6th grade to the end of 7th I pretty much had all F’s maybe some B’s in my easy classes. My parents were very disappointed in me and i was disappointed in myself. After 7th grade i decided i was gonna switch gears and start really putting my right foot forward and start paying attentions in school and ask for help when I need it.
