This was the start of a new hobby that left behind another. I never again found that same level of desire to read. I still read here and thee in middle school when I had nothing else to do. Reading became a time filler not something I sought out to do. As I journeyed through high school I struggled to find motivation to read even the assigned novels and reading.
I had to read it now, so I told myself to just do it and get it done, but I had to go get the book first. My mother took me to a store called Barnes and Noble to look for the book. This was actually the first time I had stepped foot into this store. I was so amazed by everything I saw. I walked around the store and just like that my perspective of reading changed a lot.
For years, Laurie loved to write, but considered it more than a hobby, and became a freelance reporter, she also began to write all types of books, and accomplished to pile up a lot of rejection letters. Since 1993, Laurie had been researching and constantly rewriting Fever 1793, originally tittle Bitter Drops. Laurie finished Fever 1793, and saw it published in 2000. In this passage which I’m about to read,
I feel it most strongly when I’m reading. I used to find it easy to immerse myself in a book… My mind would get caught up… and I’d spend hours strolling through long stretches of prose. That’s rarely the case anymore. Now my concentration starts to drift after a page or two. I get fidgety… begin looking for something else to do.
G soon came up with a game making the kids realize that they all had a lot in common. When Eva went to go visit her father there was a big sign of improvement with her wanting to learn because she stated to explain what was in the book to her father. When Eva tried to give her father thee book he flipped it over and was not interested in her academics. When Mrs.G gives them the assignment to read Anne Frank it piques her interest and she begins to focus more on her academics. She starts actually asking questions and reading the book every night such as "So when's Anne Frank gonna smoke Hitler?"
After reading ‘Superman and Me,’ the essay written by Sherman Alexie, one can’t help but feel inspired and get that warm feeling inside. My first reading experience was similar to Alexie’s comic in that it was a random piece of literature that was being read. The first thing I ever read was a Christmas letter from my grandma’s neighbor and unbenounced to my family, simply grabbed it and read it from beginning to end. If I didn’t know a word I made it up and kept reading as to not lose my rhythm. For as long as I can remember, I have always been advanced for my grade in my reading abilities but the problem I cross in regards to reading is the interest level.
It was the first book she had came across that interest her and that dealt with other children that were her age. This impacted her life majorly because she then went on to reading another booked called The Swiss Twins which mainly inspired her to read more books and eventually read for children in the library. It really made a positive turn in her life when she went to earning a BA in librarianship from the university of Washington Seattle. Then she got a job as a children’s librarian in Yakima; Washington, where she told stories to many children and out what stories and books they enjoyed reading
In the beginning of the semester I read the work book to him, but now he simply follows my finger and reads the words I point to. Also, in the beginning of the semester Anders took longer to work and got frustrated very easily, but now he pulls through and finishes his work much faster. While we worked I promised him songs and stories that reminded him that if he works he can have fun after. After reading a specific chapter in the book I found that I should listen to his scripting and not ignore it, because it's his way of trying to tell someone what he needs. I also learned from you, Mrs. Beitner, that when Anders says or does something wrong I should correct him by saying things like: "is that ok?"
As a young girl growing up I loved learning about historical events. As I got older I realized how passionate I'd become for history. History influenced me because it was not like all the other subjects I had taken, it was different. I loved learning about the past because I could visualize the significant events as if they were a movie playing in my head.History had always intrigued me and by my Freshmen year of high school learning about the Ancient times through modern times, which made me realize how amazing each civilization was. My teacher could sense that I was getting bored, so she suggested that I take AP U.S. history, because she knew I felt uncompleted in regular history classes.Though I knew it was going to be demanding I felt like
I loved researching on topics and taking a position on a motion. I joined a debate club but at first I was just a dormant member. I never took part in any competition. It was not because I didn’t want to but I was too shy to stand infront of people. I knew I had to work on my public speaking skills.
