The teacher called on individual students to talk about what they read briefly. While the topic of the journal writing was personal (what did you do last weekend? ), the writing seemed to serve as a way for students to practice producing written work while not being afraid of making mistakes (as the journals were not corrected but discussed). I thought this activity was a good way to get the students ready for English class with a quick and light writing assignment. Even as a native speaker, I found free-writing/journal writing tasks in my English classes to be beneficial.
Myung-Ok Lee’s opinion is expressed as a prior public school student, as an author, and as a writing teacher at Brown University (2011). Myung-Ok Lee’s reminisces her experience as a shy Asian student in high school in northern Minnesota around thirty years ago. Myung-Ok Lee benevolently recalls her American Literature teacher who deviated from her typical lesson plan to give Myung-Ok Lee a special assignment, separate from what the other students were receiving. That assignment gave Myung-Ok Lee the confidence and encouragement to continue writing. It’s apparent in Myung-Ok Lee’s article of her subjectivity towards the topic as she writes, “If we want to understand how much teachers are worth, we should remember how much we were formed by our own schooldays.”(2011).
`... long-term aim is to arrange a teacher exchange - several Polish teachers are looking for penfriends in English schools, to improve their written English ... so if you're interested, the information's all here ...'

The meeting broke up and the Head vanished in a knot of teachers wanting to talk to him.
Victorie M. Penn Andrew Gitlin EDUC 2120 November 28, 2007 Personal Teaching Text Throughout the term of my Educational Diversity class, experiences within and outside the class changed me as a person and in effect, a teacher. Three essays were assigned to begin uncovering themes involving diversity in education—a life history, an issues on diversity essay, and a shadow study. From these essays, I realized four themes: one in each essay and one overall theme. In my first essay, a life history, I described an incident that influenced me in terms of diversity. In summary, I was in a youth group who ignored a girl named Gretchen because she was different.
On Wednesday, January 30, I was able to observe another English teacher at Helix High School. This time, I sat in on Julie McGuffin’s sophomore Honors English class. During this particular class session, McGuffin’s students were just beginning to draft their first essay—a response to how media influences teenagers. The students started off by watching a 60 Minutes episode about the effects of advertising on teenagers. Earlier in the week, they had read various articles on this topic.

AP Language & Composition Summer Assignment: Reflective Letter Dear Mr. Navas, My name is _________ (the girl who came in your class with Ms. Maloney and 3 essays begging to get a spot in your AP class.) This is my life story, you wrote on the summer assignments paper that this reflective letter should be two pages, I’m sorry to tell you but you may have to read a little more than two. When it comes to my life and a prompted that’s asking me to write about it I go all in. At only 16 years old I’ve seen and gone through enough. Enough to help someone who wants to commit suicide, or someone who’s been sexually assaulted, or abused, and for those who’ve lost a loved one.
In one of the few instances where her grammar was perfect, she said, “I want to improve my English.” Maryanne often states the main subject of the sentence at the beginning of her sentence. According to Ian Thompson's essay, 'Japanese Speakers' (Learner English: A teacher's guide to interference and other problems. Edited by Swan and Smith, published by Cambridge University Press 2001), this is a typical problem with many Japanese speakers. “It is common in the Japanese language to announce the topic of the sentence separately at the beginning.” In describing what she likes about learning English at St. Giles, she said, “This school teacher very
Getting just a passing grade in the elementary school was terrifying so I decided to attend the class and learn French. That day, when I went home, I told my mother what decision I had made and she told me that she was going to support my decision and help me in everything. In order to follow the rhythm of the class, because they already were an intermediate level, my mom and I decided to hire a private professor to help me learn faster and follow the class. By the end of semester, I took the evaluation test in French and my school teacher was surprised by the results. I did not stop learning French for two years, and it was time to decide for the high school.
