This book caused me to read more books with substance and less books about a moody kid with mood rings and dried cherries, not that there were many books like that. This book gives me a lot of nostalgia and I like this book. I would also save this book because I’m probably the only one who
On all my assignments I have used these tools and I have also visited the writing center on one of my assignments, which was very helpful. Another tool that I thought was helpful to me during my assignments was the synthesis matrix. The synthesis matrix is my favorite tool and I will continue to use this throughout the rest of my courses. It made comparing, contrasting, and combining different sources at one time very easy. It gave me a head start on the literature review and it made it come together more easily.
There are so many elements in this story that translate directly into a classroom setting. The themes are universal and any student can relate to them whether boy or girl. This novel is fast paced. The chapters are relatively short and allow for easy reading. This would be a great story to use as a coordinating teaching activity with the American history class.
One of my absolute favorites is the My Weird School series by Dan Gutman. In each of the books, they talk about one of the crazy, weird teachers that work at their school. Another one of my favorites is the Magic Treehouse series by Mary Pope Osborne. In this series, they travel to different places in the world with their treehouse and learn about it. I spent hours reading them, and I still enjoy them to this day.
It all began when I was in first grade, but enjoyed reading in third grade. The main type of reading that I like to do is extensive reading during my free time. Reading The Lightning Thief in middle school encapsulated me as an avid reader. The authors of my favorite books are Rick Riordan, James Dashner, Justin Somper, Michael Scott, and Maggie Stiefvater. The types of books that I like to read are science fiction, mystery, action and adventure, and sometimes romance.
Each essay I wrote took me several time to write, several drafts which show that I have improve every time I do the drafts to write a perfect masterpiece. I learned a lot of skills and techniques this quarter, which has helped me to improve and progress my writing skills for the future. I will remember the skills, techniques, and tips that professor gave us in this English class for my higher education. For example, all the time that I went to visit professor Sapozhnikov office hours to receive help on my out-of -class essays has helped me to improve, grow, and progress in my writing skills as a writer. Some of the significant changes I have made as I was progressing and growing were to develop a strong thesis to help support my claims as I write my essays, such as facts, observations, illustration, and examples.
Im still reading the magic tree house. Granted the book were extremely good from what I can remember. But It was anthing compared to harry potter and twilight, or any other book that my peer were reading. When it came time to starderd test like the EOG, I was given extra time, I had some one actual read my test to me. The Next big step for me in my reading happened in 7th grade when I found a new book series to read.
She put me in her college english class when I became a senior, because she said I showed potential to be successful, and I am so proud that I took that class because it taught me how to do more. When I went back to public school I joined the reading competition team again, and for both junior and senior year, I became captain because I showed the team that I was the willpower to read all 30 books within the deadline. Even though our team did not place in the top ten, each year we grew closer and closer, and my team says it is with the help of me. I think going back to public school has helped me. Even though a lot of people believe that Jeannette is not a good school, and that they do not teach us the necessary components to get us to learn, just like in Sherman Alexie's reading, but we have shown people that they are wrong, and that we have some of the best kids in the school around the area.
Concerning part of the background, few people know that we have a so-called “functional” illiteracy problem. Of the relatively few who do know, almost no one knows the massive extent of that problem, or the nature of the problem, itself. It would be reasonable to conclude that “functional” illiteracy must mean that there are literate people who can read fluently but who are, because of some defect, incapable of understanding what they are reading. Such a condition does, of course, exist but more commonly with computer software than with human beings. Computer software can read aloud anything that is printed here with quick and astonishing accuracy but is incapable of understanding any of it.
