His society in the Indian reservation he grew up in instilled this belief of being stupid. This wasn’t him, and he wouldn’t accept that notion. He continued to read no matter the place or time. This is interesting because no matter the scornful responses from Indian or Non-Indian people he continued to read. It shows how meaningful reading is.
He soon realizes that his diverse group of poor students is embroiled in a careless and aggressive attitude toward any authority figure. Without the positive support of family members and low academic expectations from school administrators and teachers, Mr. Clark tries to teach rules and high social and academic expectations. One of the rules is that the class is a family and no one is quitting on each other as long as they have respect for each other. He tries to show them that learning can be fun when they cooperate with each other. As the students read books and did their homework, they began to recognize the value of school.
The reason I chose this factor is because of how close the young man is to the book and how the instructor seems as if she is reading as well as following the words with her finger. That leads me to believe that he probably can’t see the words well on the book. If he comes from a low-income community and his family does not have health care, then maybe he never thought about getting his vision checked because his parents are not in a position to pay for it. Now on the other hand everything I perceived this visual to be could be totally wrong which is why you can’t act on perception alone. I’ve learned in life that you have to deal with facts, things that could be proven, because a perception is just a theory that your thoughts created due to certain
One, maybe the most important, goal to achieve is to be a good reader: reading implies taking a book not only as a bunch of paper, full of letters, but as a friend, enjoying it from the beginning to the end with no obligations behind; associating ‘’reading’’ with terms like duty or discomfort only reflects the lack of this skill as a weakness, since students are required to read big loads of material for their classes. Writing is another point that Sullivan mentions, it is important as a student –and I’m very sure that in life too- to have the idea that you can always improve your writing and don’t, like many do, think of yourself as an efficient writer just because you know how to appropriate put words with some sense on a sheet of paper, because is not the denotative part we are looking for instead the reader needs to think and dream while reading, and also be illustrated by the writing skills of an author- folks do not read Shakespeare or Wilde because of their “typical sense of words”, they read these authors to feel alive themselves and to learn-. Writing requires dedication, effort, and sometimes enthusiasm, doing critical reviews and research can really boost your writing skills. The third point he states is thinking, this can be crucial, because having a no-limitations mindset can
Euripides proverb means so much but in less words. By saying the future is dead; he means nothing good is coming for you from the future because now these days, to get a good job, you need a good education. Also, by saying” losses the past,” he means that there’s no going back to fix the past. In addition, learning at a young age gets you loving to learn and a good understandment of the real life situation. Euripides proverb hit me!
It's not neccesarily bad, but creative and can lead to better things. The author also suggests, that teachers should ask students to be mindful. As this would help them to focus on the importan aspects of a subject and not be concerned and frustrated with the subject. This helps students to be better focused and makes the
Motivating Males to Read Middle School Teacher’s Guide ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Using Tradebooks in the Classroom By Alice Mikos ©2007 Use this guide to help you meet the challenge of motivating reluctant male readers. The independent reading level of some books included in this list is not matched to the student’s grade level. Your use of these books in class validates them to below grade level, reluctant readers. Boys who may have previously felt some books are too elementary for them (due to the picture book format) will be encouraged to read these books because you use them. Additionally, picture books are included because they serve as models of “well-written, language-rich
In True Learning, an excerpt from Holt’s The Underachieving Schools book, he is consistent with his belief that public schools often teach kids how to be lazy and how they will only remember the information that interests them, and nothing else. According to the reading, the public school systems take away one’s true ability to learn and that it is best to learn the ways of life by experience, not from a classroom. “Education is something a person gets for himself, not that which someone else gives or does to him” (True Learning). Although Holt make’s valid points about the differences in which children learn, he has no actual facts or
Some would stay it is because students do not want to study and just find it much easier to just purchase a essay online or to park their seat next to the “nerd” in the class to ensure that you ace every pop quiz. Others would say that the pressures of being scholastically advanced are too much of a burden, so they cheat to ensure that their goals are achieved they way their parents and teachers visualize for them. Whatever the reason, is it worth the risk or should students just be satisfied with the grades that they actually earned. Cheating may not always be the first option for some students but end up being the last resort in some situations. In high school, if a child is trying to land scholarship or trying to get into a prestigious school that only accepts the elite of the elite you are pressured to excel in all aspects of your academic career.
Just to do what books tell you to do and nothing else is characteristic of an academic/bookish individual. Studying alone is insufficient; learning must also be accompanied by real life experience, as they are counter-balances of one another. Abilities are strengthened and capabilities balanced by studies. Cunning individuals regard studies with contempt because concepts learned from books might thwart their devious goals; unpretentious individuals admire studies because they themselves may have had little opportunity for study, and an astute individual makes good use of studies and knowledge gained by studying as a
