Reading Autobiography Analysis

Good Essays
Throughout my life, the English language has been a huge part of my life. I believe leaning to read and write are very important in today 's society, so I am very grateful to have had resources to be able to do so. I remember when my mom used to take me to the library. I was not in school yet, but my mom tried her best to make sure I could read at a certain level. We would take turns reading each page. When we finished reading the book, she would ask me what the book was about to make sure I understood what the book was about. My earliest memory of writing is probably during school, I do not really remember writing much at home other than practicing writing the alphabet.

Writing allows me to express my feelings in a way that I cannot by just speaking about them. It lets me think about what I want to say before actually saying it. As a student, reading and writing are very important to being a successful student. Reading and writing do not solely occur in an English class, but every class includes reading and writing in some sort of way. In the future as a professional, I believe reading and writing will still be a huge part of my life. Especially since I hope to become a scientific researcher, I will have to do a lot of reading a writing to be successful. This means that I must work hard to become very confident in my skills in reading and

    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.
