In John Steinbeck’s novel “Of Mice and Men”, symbolism is a crucial factor to understanding and addressing different themes or topics the story talks about and make them more manageable, but also to engage readers. The author uses different symbols such as animals, characters, and places to portray the themes of dreams, innocence, loneliness, friendship, the American Dream, the weak and the strong, among others. Without understanding these key symbols readers probably wouldn’t understand the context of the story or what the author wants to express, making it very boring when reading it. Definitely, these symbols give a deeper meaning to the story, which could be also described as an allegory. Throughout the story, it can be seen that the author
Having students fully engaged with a text to achieve meaningful learning requires some components be put in place. The text must be on their appropriate instructional reading level, so as not to frustrate them. The students must have the skills to read and then critically analyze the content. To do this, students must usually have scaffolded instruction on how to analyze a text, for example how to make inferences or connect a topic to its real word application. Students also must have the opportunity to discuss with others the text to deepen their understanding by using others points of view to help deepen their own understanding.
Recalling my experience learning literature in school, I would say that mine is quite similar with Ho’s. I did not have to memorize the whole literature book cover-to-cover and translate them in papers, but I only got right answers if only my answers were included in schemes although the question intended to enhance creative thinking. Not only in literature, every subject should be instilled with both factual and creativity segment and it can only achieved by not letting the children’s thinking from constrained with answer and solution
Technology and Arithmetics: The Coming of New Age Technology in Classrooms "Unplugged" is an 1994 essay written for The New Republic magazine by David Gelernter, a Yale University computer science professor. In this essay, Gelernter claims that computers in schools can be good in a certain criteria, but can also be detrimental in actually learning the material. He writes, "While we worry about basic skills, we allow into the classroom software that will do a student's arithmetic or correct his spelling" (309). Gelernter argues that to actually see the potential in computers at school, we must agree on three conditions. There should be a new take on children's software, computers should only be used during a time of relaxation and, finally, computers should be used as a helping tool in academics and not taking the place of a teacher.
In the article, “How to Mark a Book,” Mortimer Adler presents an assembly of recommendations that he believes we should take into account when reading. Alder claims that when we read, we should ‘mark up’ a book to fully understand the beauty behind the writing. Alder states that if we do not write down our thoughts, concerns, questions, and sometimes answers then we are missing an immense bit of the learning process. Alder points out that when reading a book it is important that it is not just the teacher and a learner, but that we question the teacher to enhance our learning and understanding. Alder then proceeds to explain his seven-step suggestion on how to successfully mark books pages.
Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore, Penumbra’s goal is to motivate his members to unlock Manutius’s codex vitae. In contrast to Corvina, he has the ability to adapt to new knowledge that goes beyond what has been taught through the Unbroken Spine. As Penumbra encourages the use of technology in the fellowship, he states: “computers, my boy[…] They hold the key for us[…] If computers can help you solve the Founder’s Puzzle, they can do much more for this fellowship” (Sloan 130). Yet having no prior knowledge for technology and perceived as as old fashioned, Penumbra evolves to new knowledge as he begins to understand the benefits of using technology and how it creates
The Common Core reading list includes: “Evolution of the Grocery Bag”, “Invasive Plant Inventory”, and “Recommended Levels of Insulation”.

Section I: Overview The Self Illusion by Bruce Hood is a book best fit for a Psychology 20 Textbook. In the science non-fiction, Hood reveals how the notion of “self” appears during our infancy and how the design of the developing brain allows us to become socially reliant on others. He describes how “self” is the outcome of our interactions and contacts with others, and it really only exists within our brain. The experience of a person is constructed from a mass of mechanisms and processes that we are unaware of, while “Me”, something that someone describes themselves as, is similarly created, though we are more concious of the events that shaped it. Everyone in today’s society has shown that conscious experience, and our identity is highly
