the book starts off good in the begining, but reading a little bit into the first 50 or 60 pages it hits a dull spot, where the author goes into too much detail about random people on the island, goes into too much Army or Navy languege that at times might be over peoples heads and might be hard to follow. The only other fault with the book is that might have a feel of a post-war "greatest generation" mentality to it, so it might not have a modern propesctive on the subject, buts its understandable since the book was written in the early 1950 's. So in conclusion, Day of Infamy by does hold up as a definitive book about Pearl Harbor, because the author does have a genuine intrest about the subject that Walter Lord really wanted to get it right, make sure all sides were told in the story, to capture the true emotions of that day, and though at at times the author is a little long-wineded and dry at times in the book, the book does hold as a solid account of Pearl Harbor and anyone wanting to learn about the subject should read
If the the non fiction novel “The Devil in the White City” were to have been written 10 years ago or even 100, it would have definitely been written differently. Although history is history, and some events cannot be changed, the way in which author Erik Larson wrote the novel would fluctuate. The further and further we look back into the past, the more difficult it is to put yourself in that time period and feel what characters could’ve felt in those very moments. With advancements being made on the daily, Erik wrote his book at the perfect time to grasp readers from the eldest and latest generations.
One difference between them would be how fast-paced Jewett’s writing is. “She thought of the tree with a new excitement” (Jewett 438), this quote shows how Jewett explains his emotions in a faster pace type of style than Twain does, due to the fact that Sylvia’s emotions to the stranger at first weren’t that good. Another difference complements Jewett’s fast-paced writing is how Twain draws out his writing, or slower in a way. “After ten more minutes the town is dead again” (Twain 411), even though Twain follows his own set of rules when writing his stories; it still is slow-paced compared to Jewett’s writing. Even though these two writers have many differences, they have comparisons which made their writing fun to

Western Civilization, edited by Jackson Spielvogel, is a high-level textbook aimed at high school students. After conducting an assessment, the textbook has many advantages and drawbacks when used in an academic setting. Textbook Readability Upon conducting a Raygor readability assessment, I estimate Western Civilization is on a 12th grade reading level. By counting the number of sentences in three 100-word sections as well as the number of words with six or more letters, then using the Raygor diagram for readability, it is clear the textbook is on an advanced reading level, even bordering college level material (McKenna 43). To obtain the Lexile measure, I searched on the Lexile website and found two other Western Civilization books by the same author.

Firstly, in the book you can imagine the story and characters the way you want to. Secondly, the book includes far more details than the movie that deeply develops the characters. Lastly, the movie did not include favored parts that were in the book. The book showed its full potential. First, the book was better than the movie because you

They seperate from her because of the way she is and how she acts.

FirstLife by Gena Showalter is my second most difficult or third least difficult novel on my reading ladder because it has several more difficult words and was hard to understand due to plot twists and mixed messages. The difference between FirstLife and Can 't Look Away is the amount of pages I had to read. FirstLife has 438 pages and was a little confusing, when Can 't Look Away has 272 pages, making less pages it a little more bearable then lots of pages. It gives me more confidence when I read fast and well. Finally I chose to put Cradle and All by James Patterson as my hardest book because frankly I did not understand it.
The three essays that I read range widely in the amount of effort put into them. I read Lorenny Infante’s, Joana Benitez’s, and Matthew Busarello’s essays. To start, both Lorenny and Joana put a lot more effort into their essays than Matthew. Matthew wrote very little and what he wrote doesn’t have great grammar. In the last sentence alone there is multiple mistakes.

I definitely think that this second essay was much more effective and well written than the first essay. This essay for me almost brought the topic of language full circle for me and showed the importance of grammar in language. I noted that I did not think that there were many transitional issues in the essay because I believe that this essay could flow many different ways. The way that the author had it set up at the start works and I am able to understand it, but even when I try and move paragraphs around, I am still able to understand and retrieve the meaning of the essay. I think one of the reasons why it is hard to decide positively whether or not there are any transitional issues is because the essay had no thesis or guideline for the reader to follow.
Dingess Elementary has been participating in Specific Personal Learning (SPL) since 2010 with the focus being the five components of reading: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. We also target writing skills, and math skills. The kindergarten students study phonemic awareness activities from Phonemic Awareness in Young Children. Students in grades 1st and 2nd are given a spelling inventory from Words Your Way and students are placed in groups according to the skills they lack. 3rd and 4th grade students are placed in groups to deal with their weakness on STAR 360 and the WV Summative Test.
