My reading experience

This week, I have read seven articles, but only Eudora Welty’s ‘One Writer’s Beginnings” left a deep impression on me because it made me recall my own reading experience and education process when I just saw the title of this article. I could not say I am a writer, but I think I am a totally reading lover. After reading the “One Writer’s Beginnings”, I think there is a little bit similar between Eudora Welty’s childhood and mine. However, perhaps…...

Critical Reading, Writing, & My Learning Patterns

When I was reading the four stories from the learners in chapter three, I noticed that each of them used different patterns to write their papers. Makayla was one learner that used sequence first. She was very inquiring when it came down to what she was asked to do. Makayla needed to know too much and in this case it led her to have a duel and repetitious assignment. The advice I would give Makayla would be to field fit…...

In the 1960s, Jackson, Mississippi, was essentially operating with black maids raised white children, but weren't allowed to use the same supermarket, library, or toilet - and certainly weren't trusted around the good silver. ‘The Help’ is an unforgettable story told from the viewpoints of three very unforgettable women: Aibileen, raising her seventeenth white child; Minny, forever losing jobs due to her sassy tongue; and Miss Skeeter, an aspiring writer who has been raised by black maids all her life.…...

“Nowhere Man” by Pico Iyer

“Nowhere Man” by Pico Iyer talks about how being a transit lounger has it’s ups and downs. Packing and waiting for your next plane as soon as you’re about ready to just sit down and rest. From sleeping in airports to eating almost all of your meals off of plastic plates. I could relate to Iyer to some level but fully. Being a visitor in your home is never a good feeling to experience but seeing the world through your…...

The importance of reading books: exercising our mind

Introduction Some people only do physical exercise to keep fit, to be in shape and to generally look good. Though you must never forget that we should also exercise our mind. How do we do that? By reading. Reading will also make you look good and keep you “in form”. Books accompany us as long as life endures: when we are small babies our parents read us fairy tales, when we become elder we swallow exciting books page after page and finally when we mature we still read suspense books which entirely absorb our attention. Books are a veritable treasure: you can…...

Joyce Carol Oates and Ralph Waldo Emerson

In class out of the three essays we read I choose to do a compare-contrast between Ralph Waldo Emerson’s and Joyce Carol Oates’s essays. I choose these two because they both had different feels towards nature. Oates is against nature and Emerson is about becoming one with nature. Even though both have different meaning, both Oates and Emerson successfully uses rhetorical strategies such as appeal to credibility, emotion, and logic to support their claims on nature. In Emerson’s “From Nature”…...

As he followed the teachings of Elijah Muhammad, he found astonishing interest in black history and slavery. His tone…...

Ap Biology Study Reading Guide Chapter 6

Idea 6.1 Biologists utilize microscopic lens and the tools of biochemistry to study cells 1. The research study of cells has actually been limited by their little size, and so they were not seen and explained till 1665, when Robert Hooke first looked at dead cells from an oak tree. His contemporary, Anton van Leeuwenhoek, crafted lenses and with the improvements in optical help, a new world was opened. Magnification and dealing with power limit what can be seen. Describe…...

READING DIFFICULTIES AND ITS RELATION TO THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF GRADE TWO PUPILS

"The Silent Dancing" by Judith Ortiz Cofer Book Review

The written text and photograph for Judith Ortiz "Silent Dancing" reflects back on Cofer's unhappy confusing childhood. Cofer recalls most of her memories from a silent video; both the story and photograph paint a garden of grey memories of isolation, unsettling situations, the struggles of assimilation, and the sadness she experiences as a child. My goal of this essay is to compare and explain the similarities of Cofer’s text to the picture on the book cover of her book. Cofer's…...

Parents and Children Relationship

1) What forms the foundation of the relationship between the two characters your group has been assigned? (Think about the ties they have with one another, how are they drawn to one another etc.) There is familial love between Jessica and Shylock but Jessica is unfilial. The quote ‘To be ashamed to be my father’s child’ (2.3.16) shows that Jessica detests her father to the extent of being ashamed to be related to him. However, Solanio heard Shylock shout in…...

Reading Fluency

Reading fluency is defined as the ability to read smoothly and accurately, while using proper phrasing and expression (Bengeny,etal.,(2010). It is important that students add emphasis and make inferences while reading to process the meaning to the information being read. When practicing reading fluency it is important that students develop automacity. A professional ballet dancer no longer consciously has to think about her form or steps to a routine, a fluent reader should no longer remember to be aware of…...

Summary about The Ransom Of Red Chief

“The Ransom of Red Chief” is a short story written by American writer William Sydney Porter, better known as O. Henry. Like many of O. Henry’s works, the story is notable for its plays on words, humor, and plot twist. Written around the turn of the 20th century, the story is a short rendition of what you might get if you crossed “Home Alone” with “O Brother Where Art Thou?” It makes for a diverting 5-10 minutes that will bring at least one smile to your face while reading and perhaps a couple chuckles. Book Summary The story takes place in rural…...

The tell-tale heart, An allegorical reading

“The Tell-Tale Heart”, An Allegorical Reading In “The Tell-Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe, the narrator is reciting his story and dreadfully tries to convince the unknown listener that he is not mad. Poe’s style of writing leads us to doubt of the truthfulness of his story, based on the narrator’s frenetic diction or unbelievable assertions. Several clues or pieces of evidence throughout the story point to the possibility that this tale is merely a result of the narrator’s imagination…...

Traveling is more important than reading books

Traveling is more important than reading books to understand people and the world. A book about another country tells you about things such as the country’s history, its people and its culture in a very general way. When meeting foreigners, I found that books can’t be trusted totally. For example, when I was visiting Wisconsin University, many people were rigid, uneducated, had no sense of humor, and they all wore blue suits. Even the picture in some people’s minds was…...

George Orwell's A Hanging Book Review

George Orwells’ “A Hanging” is a very descriptive piece. It starts off going into a detailed description of the weather, jail cells, and the inmates. The description goes so far to even mention that the man who was going to be hanged jumped over a water puddle. This shows me that even though it shouldn’t matter because he’s about to die it is just a natural instinct. When Orwell starts to describe the weather it sends out a dark uneasiness…...

John Keats "On First Looking into Chapman's Homer"

“On First Looking into Chapman’s Homer” by John Keats is a poem widely recognised by critics as a pivotal moment in his development as a poet; this work is evidence of his complete mastery of the sonnet form (of which he wrote 64 in total). This poem was a key evolutionary process which would help him construct the development of his own poetic legacy: the Great Odes. Keats was enthralled by the sonnet form because it presented a challenge: to…...

"The Human Cost of an Illiterate Society" by Jonathan Kozol

Reading essay The Human Cost of an Illiterate Society by Jonathan Kozol rekindles the candle of the horrors of illiteracy within us, a candle that has been extinguished by our hectic lives. As he quotes James Madison’s statement, “A people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives”, these words make us think about ourselves and the society around us. A country is run by Government. That Government is chosen by people. And…...

Joy Of Reading Books and Importance of Libraries

The definition of a “good time” is different for everyone, but for me its reading a good book, fiction, non-fiction, biographies, history, religious books, comics anything . When I came to America in July 2013, I was fascinated to see a lot of different things and one of them were libraries, since I have a passion for reading books, I try to read one whenever I have free time, there were a lot of books ranging from the ones for…...

“Mother Tongue” by Amy Tan

Amy Tan begins by announcing, “I am not a scholar of English…I cannot give you much more than personal opinions on the English language and its variations in this country and others.” How does this opening set up your expectations for the rest of the essay? Why do you think she chose to begin by denying her own authority? The introduction Tan decided to use presents the reader with a strong sense of the kind of individual she is. By…...

Pocahontas and the Powhatan Dilemma Book Review

This book was the bases and the most informative piece I have seen on a review of Pocahontas life in my perspective. Pocahontas life is a difficult piece of history to analysis for the fact that her life is only denoted by other persons of history writings. She has no known piece of writing of her own so all knowledge is personal based of outside parties. This makes it for sometimes difficult to truly believe everything for many of the…...
