Anisha Spellman Benchmark Assessment: Language Arts Unit Plan Grand Canyon University: EED-525 November 27, 2013 “Learning to read and reading to learn” is a quote that one of the schools in my district uses to help motivate reading in all students and their families. I believe reading is an important aspect of all lives. What exactly would the world be like without the reading? It is crucial that we teach this to all of the little children while they are young and trying to learn. The more they practice and the more teachers and parents instill this in their minds, the better they will become.
My Literacy My childhood was filled with a lot of practice and repetition of reading and writing. My acquisition of language was about as normal as it can get. I would say it was very similar to the Maintown Ways. I can remember seeing my parents reading the paper or being put to bed and getting read stories. I was flooded with language.
Reading became a passion with him as well as writing. He carried books and pen hidden under his clothes and read and write wherever he could. Brandon’s education in Elementary was maintained throughout six years with honors and awards each year. He was quickly preparing to enter the secondary. But unfortunately every year in that level except the fourth year, he was always transferring into other school: from New Jersey to the schools in Frankfurt Germany to Virginia schools and finally North Carolina.
And even before that my mother would read to me every night before I go to sleep. She would have this big book filled with Mother Goose nursery rhymes and would read that along with some other books. When I started to talk my parents taught me the alphabet which seemed pretty easy. It wasn’t long before I could say the entire alphabet on my own. The next thing my parents taught me was to put the letters and sounds together to
After Alexie became a writer, he often visited schools and teach creative writing to Indian kids and let them read books. Indian children were expected to be stupid but after they read books they are refreshed. He wrote about those kids in the article [run on sentence. End the last sentence with a period and then integrate the quote] “they have read my books. They have read many books.
She talks about the books she has hidden under her bed; she reminds her siblings to do their homework and takes great pleasure in reciting new words to her sister and teacher. Mom is often talking or playing or feeding one of the other kids so Mary has taken her time alone to further educate herself. In many single parents homes children see the almost unbearable struggle that their parent has to bear and this would serve as encouragement to the child, to excel in his or her studies to secure a better future for them. A better education will lead to a better job and a more secure
Francine Prose states, "Traditionally, the love of reading has been born and nurtured in high school English class." I disagree with this statement only because of my own personal experience. My love of reading was stimulated by my own passionate mother who instilled in me from a very early age that reading books frequently is important for any educated individual. I was very startled to find that other children weren't as lucky as me, relying primarily on their school education to teach them how to read and to love reading. 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.
How I learned to read or write… Trying to remember how I learned to read or write is hard for me. I don’t know why either. To get some help to refresh my memory I started to go through my elementary school papers. I’m so happy my mom saved my early education moments. Without those papers I would be lost trying to recall what happened.
For example, one of my high school friends he was just a normal student until middle school but when he was in high school he turned into smartest student. Later we found out that he had read books for many years every day because his mother forced him to read books. So he read a ton of different subjects of books. In addition, we get intelligence from our experience. Steve Job’s never finished college but he is most successful in the world.
As a child, I had always pondered what I would be when I grew up. When I was about 5 years old, I was determined to grow up and be a stay at home mother, just like my own mother had been at the time. I was determined to be the best mother in the world, one who would pack a delicious lunch for her children, and tuck them into bed at night. However that dream changed as I grew older, and throughout my lifetime I have had many different dreams about my future; such as becoming a pop star, creating an amusement park, and writing storybooks. It was only when I finally entered college that I realized I had always loved working with, and the idea of taking care of children; and what I truly wanted to do with the rest of my life was to teach children with mental disabilities.
