Without those papers I would be lost trying to recall what happened. Going through my papers I found I wasn’t very good at reading. At least that’s what I thought at first. I was reading my teachers comments and they all basically stated that I needed to concentrate and I would be fine. The first paper I came across was the results of a pre-reading composite test from kindergarten.
The Many Aspects of English 112 English 112 has been an interesting, and challenging experience for me. From the demanding amount of work listed on the syllabus, reading from the textbook, and Mr. Smith himself, I have learned a lot from my first semester in college. Although there have been many positive experiences along the way, I feel there are a few areas that could use improvement to help students be more successful in English 112. On the first day of class I was given a syllabus, which was an outline of topics, and assignments the class would cover during the semester. The syllabus included: chapters from the textbook, in class essays, grammar exercises, a final exam, and a research paper.
English & Language Arts common Core Sate Standards: A Reflection of Key Concepts Significant for Teaching Elementary Language Arts and Literacy Jessica Bribiesca Brandman University Introduction The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts (ELA) and Literacy are significant to teachers who are preparing to teach elementary school for many reasons. Three strategies to use with the CCSS are outlined in this reflective paper. First, the ELA and Literacy standards aide teachers in setting high standards with clear goals so the teachers can produce a deeper instruction. Second, using text based evidence in ELA and Literacy guides students so they can understand what they are reading by referring back to the
My mom would only speak Spanish, so we had to learn English on our own. That’s when I turned to watching only the English channels on TV even if I didn’t understand. By the time I was in first grade I was very good in my English, and I started picking up interest in reading. “Mama estoy aburrida me compras un libro?” is what I asked my mom every time I finished my homework. Reading became part of my daily routine.
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.
Returning Back To School Keshia Ferguson English Composition 1 Kathy Conner September 17, 2011 Returning back to school I never thought I would be 33 years old and returning back to school. In this paper, I will be talking about returning back to school. I have never planned to go to college after I graduated from high school, but life does not always go as you plan. When I was in high school I made poor grades. I knew college wasn't a place for me.
I believe most of my literacy was all dependent on my Mom’s ability to help me make these connections, especially with reading. Once I could make the connection between what the word was and what the object was it was immediately placed in my mind. It was almost like learning by osmosis because we are placed in a society today where everything is based off of language. It is all around you just have to listen to it and pay attention.
In my class and staying in the ESL class only became harder and harder for me to bear. I knew I could speak, but being called out every day for the ESL class reminded me of my struggle. Without question, I always read, I listened to everything in English and I also joined an after school-tutoring
Teaching students to read and learning to read is an intricate task. Most children enter school with a considerable amount of competence in their spoken language but have little knowledge of how to read and write. There are many diverse approaches used to teach language and literacy skills and a lot of debate has arisen on how to best teach beginning reading. Some educators advocate for a phonics based approach, while others support a whole language approach. This paper will briefly look at these two different approaches, discuss some options on how best to deliver an effective reading program, and review a commercial reading program, in this case, Jolly Phonics, and its usefulness in promoting phonological awareness.
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.
