Draw a long horizontal line on a sheet of paper. Ask the student what he knows about the topic. As the student talks, the adult draws simple pictures (or writes keywords), representing the student’s ideas along the straight line. The adult discreetly arranges the pictures in a logical order during this brainstorming process. At the end of the exercise, the student “reads” the assignment to the adult, using the pictures (or keywords) as prompts. This verbal rehearsal helps the student hear the logical flow of the language. The student then completes the writing assignment using the timeline as a visual

The theme I’m exploring in my book is dealing with loss of people. Darcy is losing her boyfriend and her grandmother, she's losing her grandmother because of her health and she losing her boyfriend because of his father's health. This is a very tough time in Darcy’s life because she is trying cope with losing both of them at the same time. It affects the book in a drastic way because Darcy is the main character, and I am focusing on her and her feelings about being left and feeling alone. She feels like nobody is there for her but soon things will get
The learning activity chosen is for year 3 students, having the children chose a book they have read and enjoyed and get them to write up a book report detailing the Main characters, what happens at the start of the book, middle of the book and at the end along with the child’s personal connection with the book, what they think may happen to the characters after the story has finished and if they like the book or not and if they would recommend it to others.

The children will also be required to explore the personal connection they have with the book and what they thought of the
When taking English Composition 2 I have learned various things that I can carry through with me throughout the rest of my academic and social life. The class English Composition 2 touched on the components of character, setting, short story, drama, and poetry. With each section and a lecture on each section I have taken away a piece away from each section, one thing that is for sure I will never read literature the same after this class. When talking about character we looked into the story Gorilla My Love and how the story is told through the eyes of a young black girl named Hazel. Concluding from this section of the class I learned that if the characters were to be different characters the story would change as whole. When looking deeper into the concept of setting as a class we had the opportunity to learn how to depict where the setting is, and learn how the setting can make a difference in any type of literature. For the concept of short stories as a student I looked deeper into the story of 20/20. After, a struggle on the topic of short stories I learned the different compontes that go into and are used in making a short story. For an example, the story 20/20 uses the model Freytag’s Pyramid to tell the story line. The component of Drama happened to be my favorite component of the class. I
In the novel Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews the reader gets a wave of emotions casted over them. It can go from happiness to anger and then take a turn for being sad. When the main character’s mom makes him befriend a girl with cancer, Rachel Kushner, he is not thrilled. Greg Gaines is an introvert who is trying to get through highschool being noticed as little as possible. He really only has one friend, Earl Jackson, who he makes parodies of movies with. Greg soon realizes that Rachel is just the kind of friend he needed in life. Greg was at first reluctant to become friends with her, their friendship grew, and she stayed with him after her death. The theme I found in the story is: In order to make connections with people
Grieving is an important part of life that everyone goes through because it can ultimately make you a better person. The texts “Ordinary People” by Judith Guest , “Annabel Lee” by Edgar Allan Poe, and “The Raven” by Edgar Allan Poe all support this theme. Throughout the novel “Ordinary People”, Conrad Jarrett, the main character, is mourning the loss of his older brother Jordan “Buck” Jarrett who died in a tragic boating accident. During his time of grieving, Conrad attempts suicide.
Each character has a different grieving process throughout the three books, the characters are dealing with loss of parents, and each character goes through the grieving process differently. Through the lens of psychology theory, sudden deaths of a parent in childhood affect the identity of children dealing with grief in Tiger Eyes by Judy Bloom, Grief Girl by Erin Vincent, and Tear Drop Soup by Pat Schubert and Chuck Deklyen resemble the different grieving processes of death by establishing moments of denial, anger, and isolation. In each book the characters are dealing with aspects that affect their denial, anger, and isolation. Family dynamics in the characters life is important because it is the characters support system. Each book has
Imagine you are given an assignment to relate a book to life. How would you do this? Do you just say “it was written in 2016, the same year were living in?” Or “it has people?” This may be correct, but but in my class at least, that wouldn't cut it. What you’d really have to do is find the relationship or connection that life and literature have through narrative, conflict, and characterization, that'll get you a good grade. But how do i do this, you may ask. You gotta relate each of those things to yourself and the world around you.
In this essay I will discuss what grief is and the kind of grief a client could experience. We will move onto attachment theory and its link as to why we grieve. I will then look at what tools are available for counsellors to support their clients through a normal or abnormal grieving process.
In life, comprehending the loss and pain that humans face in their lives is challenging without experiencing a part of it or obtaining the opportunity to visualize it. William Minor’s I Cried of Course provides a heart-rending poem that is made strikingly emotional by the utilization of music and moving pictures in electronic format which creates an illustration for the pain people experience from the loss of a loved one. The slideshow consisting of music with lyrics that serve as the poem and old pictures of those who have lost loved ones or are deceased themselves, creates a sense of nostalgia for the reader, allowing them to empathize as if those were their memories.
Whether it is over the passing of a loved one, the end of a relationship, not getting the job they want, or maybe even failing a test, everyone will experience what it is like to grieve at some point in their lifetime. The way people grieve can be expressed in many different ways, though. Some people like to be completely alone, some like the company of others, and then there are those that act as if they are the only ones to ever go through any type of grief. The poets from the Romantic period, the Victorian age, and the twentieth century and after, all show some of the different ways in which people grieve.
