My earliest memory of writing is probably during school, I do not really remember writing much at home other than practicing writing the alphabet. I have always loved reading, but writing has and still is a struggle…

    Typically, students learn best when they are challenged. College professor Nancy Bunge found that many of her students enjoyed reading advanced literature because it challenged them to learn and readied them for real-life situations where everything they read may not be easily understood. In an English classroom, students may at first be reluctant to read a novel assigned by the teacher. However, advanced literature causes students to think, annotate, and analyze deeper into the themes and meanings of the texts they read. Additionally, school is a place for students to read literature they would not normally choose on their own.…

    Books were much excessive and the concept of the books became more complex. Even though I wasn’t on the same reading level as most, my reading levels have increased since middle school and my fear of reading went away. Reading more advanced books I would read out loud in class and my teachers would idolize me for that. Rodriquez quotes his teacher “I only wish the rest of you took reading as seriously as Richard obviously does” (295). This explains that Rodriquez faced his fear in reading and became more advanced and now teachers admired him and basically bragged about it.…

    It was something I wasn’t used to and appreciated greatly. He and another teacher compiled a list of books I should read because he saw a lot of potential in me, and he knew what I was reading at the time was hindering my growth as a writer. That list helped me transition to reading books that were more advanced, maybe even too advanced for my…

    Learning to read is such an important feat to accomplish and if taught properly can be very rewarding throughout the remaining of your life. I do not remember a lot of things about my life growing up. I do, however, remember who taught me to read and the first book I learned to read. I also remember the feelings and frustrations that went along with these memories. While most of my school teachers were supportive of my learning, there were a few teachers that made me feel minuscule in my learning process.…

    Instead, they brought science revision books, feverously reciting the information. Fiction had only served as an enjoyment, a luxury for them when it was not as important to do last minute revision. But when the exams drew near, they used the time to study instead of relax. An interest to find out why compelled me to do my portfolio on this topic. The idea of reading fiction in our lives is widely seen as secondary to exams and our studies, from my experience.…

    “How could I read on the level of adults if I haven’t read on the level of children?” This mindset is what holds these people back. As long as you can read the basics, you can pick up a sizeable amount of books and start learning, this will increase your vocabulary and allow you to advance into reading other books. A lot of individuals think books are boring, they are not fast paced and up to date with modern times since we have “advanced” electronics such as, television and smart phones. This makes sitting down reading quietly feel dull compared to what is going on in the fast moving world we live in today. However, reading will just improve your skills allowing you to be more effective in the fast world.…

    After reading Adler’s book, I found some helpful information about studying or reading different types of materials that can help me become a better reader and learner. Reading has not been one of my strongest points in school. I have not learned how to read the meanings of important words that the other expects the reader to know. I have not mastered picking out the words that are meant to be clues or forshadowing to information the author expects the reader to catch. I try to be an exceptional reader in many different subjects but I have learned to read well enough the hard way to receive passing grades in school.…

    The secondary sourced used would be both the resources the teacher used when discussing the material in his or her lectures, as well as the students’ novels. The letters that the students will be analyzing near the end of the unit are considered primary sources. I also love the fact that this lesson plan includes literacy circles, because many students do not like reading simply because they have not had enough practice. I would imagine that even though these novels are about the Civil War that because they are historical fiction, the students would get captured in the story and not even realize that they are learning about the Civil War, and possibly come to enjoy reading. The jobs that each individual is assigned within their literacy group is a wonderful idea because it allows the students to dig deeper into the story and pull out the historically accurate facts from their fictional novel and make connections with the teachers lessons.…

    I have always had problem enjoying a good book for class or self-pleasure. My brain can wonder while reading, and I can forget what I’m reading about. I have always felt that if I were to read more throughout high school that I would just be a better student then and now. To overcome my dilemma of reading Processes this quarter and to better myself for future English courses, I will need to read more actively and comprehensively by applying myself and my interests to understand broader texts. “Reading processes: actively reading and…
