Literacy Autobiography Playing sports, socializing with friends, and working – All reasons why I am an alliterate reader and writer. I never realized the importance of paying attention in school to learn to read and write properly when I was younger. Although I graduated from high school and have a diploma, the lack of initiative and motivation in school has led me to be an alliterate reader and writer today. While in high school, playing sports was more important then learning how to read and write properly. Socializing with friends and going out to have fun was another reason why I did not learn how to write proficiently.
I knew college wasn't a place for me. My grammar and punctuation was bad, and math was also, a poor subject for me too. I struggled a lot just to finish high school, I managed to make it through high school. I had to take it one day at a time. Sometimes, I didn't want to go to school because I knew I was going
My experiences with reading and writing My earliest recollections of both my reading and writing experiences are not pleasant and to date these experiences have not changed. Prior to my kindergarden days my mother would teach me at home the letters of the alphabet in the hope that my entry into school life would me smoother. I am not too sure that she succeeded. I recall my first day in the kindergarden class, the teacher started off with figures; I thought to myself smooth sailing. I thought that all day this is what I would doing, little did I know that reading would be next.
I do not have any misconceptions about writing I'm just very out of practice and I'm sure with time it will become a lot easier and feel more natural. I need to focus on staying on topic, grammar and punctuation. I tend to go off topic once I get another idea something similar but not part of the idea I was going for in my paper. In order to improve this weakness is by keeping my ideas organize will help me stay on topic After reading chapter one it gave me a new motivation to learn about writing. I have always just gave myself the excuse that I am not a good writer and that’s how I am going to live.
By the time that we were in middle school, the majority of my friends felt that reading was a chore and turned their noses up at any books I'd suggested to them. It's only logical to conclude that there is some grievous error that teachers are making between first grade and junior high school. That's not to say that students cannot be rescued from this loathing of books during high school, but by the manner that high school teachers present them, that isn't a likely prospect. The serious decline of youths reading literature that Francine Prose notes in her essay is a depressing, almost tragic circumstance. If reading is exercise for the brain, then are teachers doing enough in other areas of education to promote thinking?
With homeschooling, the parents are the ones teaching their children, so they know their progress, strengths and weaknesses. Bittner explains that there are numerous problems with testing and that teachers actually have a problem with it. There is such a frantic need to teach children everything that will be on a standardized test that learning is almost disregarded. If any material isn’t on the main test then it is not taught. The author point out that critical thinking is not on a test so it is overlooked by routine memorization.
I try to write my journal entries to the best of my abailty because I cant see a lot fwhen I’m trying to wtite or type. My mom sometimes reads my entries, and she’ll tell me the mistakes I make because there tends to be a lot. To add on to my spelling ability, my grades have been slowly slipping. I have always tried my best at everything when it comes to school. Always had good grades, and even though the doctor told me tourettes would not affect my intelligence, it
Why I Hate English Class (essay one) In a lot of countries, school is taken very seriously and teachers are looked at as the people trusted with teaching others what they need to know to enter the world. Many may say some classes are more important than others and some may like one subject more than another. This could be because it’s too hard or the class may be too boring. But the reasons I hate English, are the long drawn out essays, the thick novels we are always assigned to read, and the ever-changing rules to how the English language is spoken and written. The long essays are the first on my list to explain why I hate English so much.
Due to the language barrier, I was never considered worthy enough to speak or be heard of by those around me. When I wanted to play, I had to try to incorporate myself into a group and force myself to participate, although half the time the others hardly realised I was there. So as time went on, I slowly got tired of trying to keep up and being left behind. I got so used to not being acknowledged in school that I eventually started concentrating on what I could do that would benefit me in fitting in with the rest of my class. Each day I persisted on improving my English and I’d get back home with a new word everyday.
For example, when I was little kid ( 1st or kindergarten)I usually didn’t do my homework because I don’t know what is the point doing it, I just know that my parent me do it. However, when I get to middle school I start does my homework and became more open minded, because doing home works help me practicing, time management skills and responsibility. Also, every turns my path of life is may lead to strife and regret. For example, if I decided to smoke or drink, I may think that I can stop anytime, but when I get addicted, I can’t get rid of it. I learns this from people older than Me., (uncle) the advice me not to follow their step.
