Ever since elementary school, he was put into programs where students had a hard time understanding the concepts of writing, but in time through the combination of taking foreign language classes and taking full advantage of the program, he did improve his writing skills. Another weakness that the author has that all traits have in common is adapting to online classes. He had past issues with taking online classes due to a combination of miscommunication, misunderstanding of assignments, and little to no assistance from previous professors. To reinforce the author’s issue regarding online classes, utilizing an article from a source that not only focuses of their issues, he will explain further the correlations between the article’s and the author’s issue regarding online classes (Shore, n.d., para. 1).
“I read quickly, and there was a chorus of laughter in response” 42. If the teacher stopped his classmates from making fun of Walter then there would be no problem and Walter would not be angry.

Mawi later says “My brother had always looked for angels. I had watched him see angels in the most unlikely places and wanted nothing more than to be like him”(Pg 110). Because of Mawi’s parents drilling the fact that he should do really well in school and the memory of his brother, he excelled academically and sometimes went to extremes to do so. For example, “Over Christmas vacation, I read and took notes on more than twelve hundred pages”(Pg 113) so that he could ace his junior English class. But in the end the book’s namesake (Of Beetles and Angels) came in to top things off.
A spiraling inversion is switching back and forth between two contrasting voices. An example of that would be when I was dating Donvea. It was so easy at school, I constantly heard positive reinforcements of our relationship. It was at home where I would hear negative things about my then boyfriend. My parents hoped that their voice was heard more than my friends’ voice.

Yet, my mentor teacher will correct him at the beginning of class, but as the lecture goes on he will normally let the student slide. My most recent observation, my mentor teacher was annoyed that the class was disengaged. He had multiple texting and sleeping warnings that before he
I felt captivated by the depth and message of this film. It really makes you think and start a conversation or dialogue about inclusive education and dealing with students with disabilities. It brought up the memory of me in high school and how the school assimilated disabled or special needs students into regular classroom and how hard it must be for them. Being included in activities with everyone else and enjoying the same opportunities is not quite the same as feeling included. Ishaan had enrolled in normal schools but even he realised how different he is from the rest of his

Everyone that goes to Lodi High School has heard of the class PSR. When I decided to take the class I just thought it would be a fun class that you just could goof off in and leave school for a block, but once I got to the class I learned that it was much more than that. It was a class that gave you the opportunity to learn in a different way than just sitting in a classroom. I would like to discuss the assignment I did for my PSR project, how me being in my PSR classrooms helped the teachers and the positives and negatives of PSR. For my PSR assignment I went to the elementary school and helped Mrs. Volks class and Mr. Wallace's class.

Near the end of the book, the students at Reardan have learned a great deal from Junior. He earns the respect, most easily shown through the basketball team, of most students.

He has always enjoyed school, received good marks, and was in excelled classes up to middle school until he began to “slack a little bit” when he would skip class, but his family and teachers helped him understand the importance of being responsible and on time.
