    1) I have never chosen to read a nonfiction book on my own time because when I think nonfiction I oftentimes think of something boring and dry. The ones I have read have been strictly informational and in general very uninteresting. However, I am excited to read a biography as as of late there have been quite a few I have wanted to read and I think I will find them more interesting than what I traditionally associate with nonfiction books. 2) I am reading the memoir Let's Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson. I think a memoir can be desireable as it is a direct reflection of someone's experience which can be more relatable and raw rather than someone simply listening off facts and details. I think from reading a memoir one can learn…

    what taught and how students responded to this instruction. I thought phonics was the key factor to teaching kids how to read, that nonfiction texts were meant solely for higher level reading, reading assignments were best determined based upon reading level only, answering questions after reading was best for comprehension, and that our current academic system fails to actually teach kids how to read. Throughout the course there have been several instances during class and online sessions that…

    Know Your Writing Mission Choosing a type of writing that is close to your heart, provides you with a purpose or a mission. Whether it is widely known or not, every writer has a mission. For some it is fiction, and for others, nonfiction. With a firmly established mission, you write with more zeal. When trying to find your mission, write what you prefer (fiction, nonfiction or both), not what others think you should write. Only you can decide the direction of your writing, its meaning or…
