He borrowed a dictionary and copied every word , page after every page , reading and understanding as much as he could while copying , at the same time working on improving his handwriting . He was able to do this because he was in prison and had all the time in the world . Later , he progressed from the dictionary and started reading novels by well-read writers of history and philosophy (Malcolm X .What Malcolm X accomplished could be done just as easily in public schools .

To this end , teachers should not only be trained how to teach but also how to motivate .
However, though the central topic of her essay may be boring, Zacharias is an excellent writer. She uses pathos, arrangement and logos well to describe her relationship with her father and buzzards. I found pathos everywhere. I felt pathos in the first sentence: “They woof” (260). Zacharias used this line to catch the reader’s attention, which also plays into her chosen arrangement for this piece, and to get some sort of emotion out of the reader.
In my opinion, I got the idea that this book was written more for the workings of the mind but at the same time Steinbeck wanted to make you feel something as you read this. I think it was written for the workings of the mind because he wanted to get his point across about the constant internal battle of good vs. bad. What I enjoyed most about this book was the way he used characters to portray actions or ideas. For example, he used Cathy to represent evil and Aron to represent the internal battle of good vs.
The balanced mix of people, profession and social status allowed Whitfield to infuse each biography with ancillary information pertaining to religion, flora and fauna, medicine, housing, food, scenery, and so forth. She also was quite faithful to report major historical events for each "tale." I believe there are several reasons for her writing of this history. First, I think she writes it to change the negative perception of the history of Central Asia that we know through the annals of its neighbors. By explaining the history of the region through the eyes of its own occupants, it rids the history of any distorted views from neighboring civilizations.
A.O.W #13 Soapstone ~ Sophie Perez Period 5 ~ 455 words While reading an excerpt from, “There Will Come Soft Rains,” Ray Bradbury can be easily identified as a skilled author who uses a perfected use of imagery to show the setting of the story. The author may believe that the Cold War was a time to unite friends and achieve a sense of relief only after society’s problems are resolved. He may have lived through the beginning to the very end of the Cold War since all the details seem precise. To capture the tension that he showed in his descriptive writing. I think that the author wrote this story because he wanted to share an experience or certain thoughts.
Criticism to Technopoly Abraham C. Vanegas University of Maryland University College Advance Writing 391 As I read Technopoly by Neil Postman my view of technology changes little by little. Although at first after reading the synopsis in the back of the book and the introduction I thought this might be just another book criticizing technology severely, I came to find the view of this author very interesting and at some point even realistic. Potsman is a knowledgeable person, his position as faculty and writer are very clear in his writing and his main idea, which is to keep one eye open when allowing technologies in our lives is actually something that after reading his book I will take into consideration. From the beginning of his book he explains how introducing new things to our life have changed the way we are in some sort of way since the old days. “A new technology does not add or subtract something.
A successful story should be something that makes you think and wonder how you can relate to it in your life. In ‘Looking for Alibrandi, I think, many people who read it can relate too some of the feelings felt by Josie. Some of the common relations to the book people have are, John Barton’s suicide and how Josie grieved or to the hilarious situation of ‘the Hot Pants magazine quiz’ at the beginning of the book and how Josie attempted to get out of being caught, as everyone would try to do in her situation. ‘Looking for Alibrandi’ I think was successful of achieving the expectations that a reader expects in a novel. One of the expectations of a successful novel is ‘Entertainment’ this is needed to keep a reader amused and not bored with the book.
The soldiers from city of Gup communicate well with each other during the war, and win at the end of the war. Secondly, the reason why one must defend literature against tyranny is that literature has the ability to reveal the truth people have fail to see. "He believes that storytelling is our chief means of explaining the world to one another and ourselves, and the principal way we form intelligence. It is essential to human cognition. Stories teach the brain how to work."
Swift’s repetitive creation of his extreme mental images, which appeal to one’s senses, gives the reader a false opinion about him, but subsequently becomes beneficial to his overall essay. The use of imagery in “A Modest Proposal” definitely is exceptionally vivid, and as a result, stirs up an emotional response in the reader (pathos). Swift’s intention to using imagery in his essay is to not only get dramatic reactions from his readers, but to also persuade them so much that they are agreeing with his point of view. In his essay, he offers many different descriptive images in which portray the dehumanization of children and women using words such as “breeders,” “flesh,” “carcass,” and “meat”(1026-1027). One of the disturbing images that Swift creates for his audience dehumanizes children by referring to them as pigs which would be roasted then worn as fancy gloves for females, and as boots for men.
