He continues to be a big part of the plot later in the book. The novel “Life of Pi” is told from two different perspectives at once. The narration switches from the author ,Yann Martel “the visiting writer”, speaking, to the text told by Pi himself, which is written in cursive.

Ortiz 1 15 March 2012 Images of my Literacy Journey As I grasp this journey of seeing myself as a writer, I take up again the role of a rhetor, this time writing about my own portrait as a writer. Keith Grant-Davie, author of “ Rhetorical Situations and Their Constituents,” states that “new rhetorical situations change us and can lead us to add new roles to our repertoire” (109). However, almost all forms of writing intimidate me. As simple as writing in a social net work to this challenging essay I am trying to put forth. Yes, writing intimidates me.
The theme of the restaurant had me curious about three things. How did it reflect the hospitality of its employees? How did the exterior and interior of the restaurant create a at peace atmosphere? How did the theme of the restaurant depict the food selection? Sugar Island provides the necessary essentials to entice customers to feel at peace while dining.
When a paper comes up and asks to go over the topic, I go back to the chapter and read over it again quickly. I need to fully read in detail the entire chapter instead of skimming over it. It’s a habit I get from the military; you only read the essential details instead of the entire reading. • How might you incorporate three of the suggestions covered this week into your study time? A great suggestion I found useful was reading in blocks of time with short breaks in between readings.
Should teachers of Literacy be readers? How important is this for the pupils they teach? Perspectives on the Importance of Reading in Teachers' Classrooms and Lives. “Reading furnishes the mind only with materials of knowledge; it is thinking that makes what we read ours.” John Locke (1632 - 1704) During my research for this assignment, regarding whether teachers of Literacy should be readers, I stumbled upon an article within a copy of Adolescent and Adult Literacy. Ann Powell- Brown solicited a straightforward but provocative question: “(2004, p284–288) The answer that was instantly retorted was ‘certainly not’, but after a moment, the magnitude of this question echoed within my mind and led me to stop and examine my own views and feelings regarding this, and furthermore, led to the professional questioning of how could teachers enable literacy if there wasn’t a love of reading?
However, the more literature lessons I attend, the less sure I become of how I interpret books. I do not know if I always understand the book the way the author intended it, but I think that that is all right.

Reading Reflection of “I’m Going” Ryan Danekas ENG 125 Introduction to Literature Prof. Concetta Williams 10/22/2012 Reading Reflection of “I’m Going” According to Merriam-Webster Encyclopedia literature is, “writings in prose or verse; especially: writings having excellence of form or expression and expressing ideas of permanent or universal interest.” Literature allows us to expand our minds logically and allows people to keep an open mind on what they are reading.
