  • Persuasive Essay For An English Class
    1,410 words
    There is no logical reason to write a persuasive essay for an English class. Persuasive essays definitely do not need to be a requirement for high school students. The definition of persuade in Websters New College Dictionary is: To induce one to believe or do something; to argue into an opinion or procedure; to plead with, urge. I have always thought that someone who let his own opinion be changed by someone else is a person who lacks a strong will. I understand that some people have a certain ...
  • Sounds Within Spoken Words
    894 words
    Whole language is considered a 'top down' approach where the reader constructs a personal meaning for a text based on using their prior knowledge to interpret the meaning of what they are reading. Teachers are expected to provide a literacy rich environment for their students and to combine speaking, listening, reading, and writing. Whole language teachers emphasize the meaning of texts over the sounds of letters, and phonics instruction becomes just one component of the whole language classroom...
  • Writing In School

    Appealing To Whom As I sit here, I can think of few things in life more intimidating than staring at a blank computer screen with the cursor blinking in your face.

  • Rubber Band And Your Cheat Sheet
    791 words
    Although I never had a good reason to cheat on a test, I always wanted to just because I had thought of some good ways to do it. I realized that teachers were on the "look out" constantly for cheaters, which sparked my interest. How could I pull it off The fist trick requires a special kind of pen. Usually obtained from vacations to Florida, these pens have water in a hollow chamber around the center of the tube. There is usually some kind of picture of a boat that will go from one end of the pe...

  • Aspects Of The Writing Process
    2,303 words
    Evaluation and Essay 2. My chosen genre for my piece of writing was a diary of my two week holiday in Corfu - Greece; I detailed my perceptions and experiences for each day throughout my vacation. The decision to create this form of written work was not reached easily. I was daunted by the fact that I was required to write a written piece of any genre without any specifications. I have never been the creative type and thus the notion of creating a fictional piece was out of the question. I tried...

  • Coaches First My Thoughts On Writing
    414 words
    Reminecing back to when I was in high school I was terrified of writing. I probably could say that I continue to feel that way at times. Teachers usually think of themselves first as teachers and not at all as coaches, at least not when I was in school. As I read the topic of "Teacher as Coach" I thought that if my school teachers had that mentality I probably would look at writing in a more positive manner. Most often than usual, we would turn in our writing assignments and when they were retur...
