Benjamin Franklin once said “If a man empties his purse into his head no one can take it away from him. An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest”. To me this means very specifically that knowledge is the greatest investment one can ingest in because with knowledge one can succeed in what they have as a goal. As Constanzo says in his article “If you are as good a writer as you think you are, you have nothing to lose if you use the time in the remedial class to work to become even better”. When I came to know that I have been asked to take English remedial class, I was a bit mad at first, but then I thought that this class would make me better.
The more they practice and the more teachers and parents instill this in their minds, the better they will become. Perfect practice, makes perfect. Most people would probably have trouble with trying to remember how they learned to read. I would have to say that I am a person who loves to read and I think that is it really an amazing thing. Also, I am someone who is involved in education and research and I think that it is amazing how learning to read is said to be a talent that it potentially impossible.
I also think that the main reason I actually chose this scene was because of how well the author described it, so I had the image in my head the entire time I was reading the book. It wasn’t that hard to build and I had fun building and putting together the scene the way I imagined it. It was fun for the most part and I enjoyed building the Morgan's new home and I'm happy that Shane finally found a place he can call a
As Fred so eloquently put it, many people talk mainly about the future when they refer to their motivation for learning and it is important to be mindful of the future, but in my opinion, not at the expense of the present or the past. The Roman author Pliny the Elder in 'Naturalis Historia' (A.D. 77) wrote, “Experience is the most efficient teacher of all things.” As we journey through life navigating its many trials and tribulations as well as taking delight in its good and fortunate we are learning. Fundamental values are formed upon solid foundations as self-realizations are made and discovered during this period of reactive learning. In truth we are bound to make mistakes along the way that is the human condition. What’s important and benefits us most is what we learn from those mistakes and how we apply that new found knowledge towards our
I chose this book because i actually read this book long ago when I was younger and I decided to expand on my little prior knowledge of this book “Warriors Don’t Cry”. As I started reading I realized that I remembered nothing of the book but all I knew was that it was good because of my previous memories. So I made it my mission to read this book and I read it after a while. To my surprise I was interesting the entire time which is exactly what I look for in books of any genre. I chose this book because I knew I would the most excitement from
It will take all his know-how and determination, and more courage than he knew he ever possessed. I decided to read this book I had to do an English assignment on it in intermediate. When I read the book, I was instantly drawn to the interesting storyline because I had never read this kind of book before. The book is rather well written and the language is easy to understand.
Dear Derrick, To start off I really loved this essay! From the beginning to the end you gave me life. Confidence looks really good on you. I like how you have so much logic for being homosexual and that’s very good because half of these kids walking around this campus can’t give two sentences of why there “gay”, I honestly think most just do it for attention and because there confused, but who am I to judge? You related your essay to a book and I thought that was a very safe move because the outcome of it was amazing might I say.
No one should be hated because of where they are from or what they look like. I can somewhat relate to this novel in the family and school sort of way. I have a very loving family (not a mean dad), and my school experience is and will be a lot like Francisco’s. I am planning on going through high school and college, just like Francisco. Both books were interesting and inspiring to read, and it was fun to learn about Parvana and Francisco’s
How do you find information and articles on such an individual? The booklet The Bottle King was very helpful. Reading about his life and the history of the mansion at first seemed boring, but after I realized just how much he had accomplished in his life and how the mansion came to be, it became more interesting. The mansion that we get to learn in every day is just absolutely beautiful. The thought of it being someone’s summer home seems such a waste.
A hero is someone who helps the less fortunate and overcomes personal obstacles. There is only one person that I know of who has done all these. After I always have wanted to be a writer as I knew what writers were, J. K. Rowling was the very person who led me to be aware of what I should be like. Now I will tell you about J. K. Rowling. She is my hero because she inspires me so much with her such good books.
