Odtojan, Jonnamae L. REACTION PAPER: My reaction regarding to an article on a newspaper entitled "Teaching it correctly: History is not about dates" is that I really do agree with the writer that if a teacher requires the student to memorize the dates and places don't know how to teach at all. Honestly, I'm not fond of History because I really hate memorization. Way back to my 1st year high school Social Studies, I hate the history of Magellan because our teacher let us memorize all the dates and places Magellan had gone through before he reached Philippines. I also agreed on the writer about "A good history teacher must be a good story teller". History is all about the happenings before or it is what we called past.
Many people regard William Shakespeare as one of the greatest English writers of all time, yet almost all of his plays have been prohibited from most schools. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is also an exceptional composition, but is a hugely challenged book because of its use of the “n” word and its racial insults. Making it a rule that students cannot read these books in class deny them access to one of the best English writers, and one of the best books a person can read. The parents are also to blame. Parents should definitely have a right to say what their children can and cannot read, but they do not have the freedom to say what other children can or cannot read.
Fruit is a type of food that is filled with nourishment. We make sure that we get proper nutrition and proper diet from eating foods. There are many benefits you might get from eating bananas and apples; these are color, shape and health benefits. Bananas have a color of yellow when ripe and green when unripe. The taste of a banana when ripe is sweet, but if you taste a banana that is unripe it’s a bit hard and bitter.
The results indicate that fresh pineapple is best for digesting protein instead of using tinned pineapple. The experiment concludes that tinned pineapple is not as effective in breaking down amino acids in gelatine and that fresh pineapple digested is the process of catalysing the chemical reaction in breaking down protein. It is recommended that the use of fresh pineapple over tinned pineapple is used because results are more evident in the subdividing of proteins. This will therefore increase the speed of digesting protein, to maximise the efficiency of an athlete or performer. Introduction: There have been many studies on finding a way to digest protein quickly and efficiently.
Teaching Grammar Grammar is far-and-away the most difficult issue in the teaching of writing. On one hand, any number of studies have proven that lectures and exercises on grammatical rules and errors have no success whatsoever in eliminating error from student writing, and some have suggested that, in wasting time that might otherwise be used for instruction in rhetoric, such lectures and exercises actually weaken student writing. Moreover, in so far as such lectures and exercises can make students more self-conscious and undermine their faith in their own linguistic intuitions, they further weaken student writing. On the other hand, however, many and perhaps nearly all faculty not directly involved in the teaching of writing, as well as most professionals outside the academy expect teachers of writing, first and foremost, to teach students to write grammatically. Indeed, nothing else has even a fraction of grammar’s importance.
Teachers read the Lesson with the class, and commented on it:‘grammar-translation’:based on talking about the language, not on using it. The aim was knowledge, not fluency. Very few learners became fluent. Phase 2:From early 20th Century, - several attempts to simplify the reading texts. The teaching style did not change much.
My Opinions on Math and How It Relates to Life Any subject of math has never been a problem for me. The simple fact that if I had a choice of not taking math classes then I wouldn’t. I have neither hostility nor fondness towards the subject; I guess you can say I am neutral much like the zero on the number line. I believe math is the type of subject that anyone can figure out as long as they took the time out and actually studied it. This subject requires a lot of memorization of things that would never change for example: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division is something that could be memorized to make the process of math easier.
On moving from Primary school to Secondary I thought that I had conquered the art of writing. I carried the skills and style that I had developed at the Primary level. Again my frustration level reared its head. The teachers at the secondary level were not impressed with either my writing or reading. My list of books read was unacceptable.
It is because my knowledge does not cover enough for the fields that I may not be interested in like literary, chemistry ... So, if I want to improve this weakness, all I have to do is balancing my knowledge. I need to read as hard as I can to cover up the knowledge of the fields that I missed so that I will have more ideas to talk about whenever I receive a topic, no matter it is my favorite topic or not. The second issue I want to mention is that I am really bad at using the correct vocabulary for each topic. For instance, when I have already found out the ideas for my topic, I still have difficulty in choosing the right words to express my ideas.
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.
