[I Don't Believe Some Teachers Consider Whether Their Classroom Instruction Fosters The Development Of Reading Habits In Their Students. Reflecting On The Landslide Of Crossword Puzzles, Dioramas, Annotations, And Reading Logs Assigned To Their Students For Every Book They Read, Teachers Might Realize That Instead Of Encouraging Students To Read, These Mindless Assignments Make Kids Hate Reading. Primarily Assigned To Generate Grades And Give Teachers A False Sense That They Are Holding Students Accountable For Reading, These Counterfeit Activities—that No Wild Reader Completes On His Or Her Own—guarantee That Their Students Will Avoid Reading. If We Care About Our Students' Reading Lives, We Must Foster Their Lifelong Reading Habits And Eliminate Or Reduce The Negative Influences Of Classroom Practices That Don't Align With What Wild Readers Do.]

Elizabeth Fama Quotes

"Look at the mid- sky, about halfway up from the horizon, and wait for your eyes to adjust," I said softly. "It will take five to ten minutes."He was quiet. The sky was full of stars; and the spaces between them were not fully black, because the longer we stared, the more the pricks of other stars peeked behind and next to them. I stole that time to listen to him breathe. I soaked up his presence, storing it for the future, burning it into my memory."

Marcel Proust Quotes

"Faced with the thoughts, the actions of a woman whom we love, we are as completely at a loss as the worlds first natural philosophers must have been, face to face with the phenomena of nature, before their science had been elaborated and had cast a ray of light over the unknown. Or, worse still, we are like a person in whose mind the law of causality barely exists, a person who would be incapable, therefore, of establishing a connexion between one phenomenon and another and to whose eyes the spectacle of the world would appear as unstable as a dream."

"in English and Arabic. Clearly, even personal shoppers had him pegged as a complete geek. The shopper also managed to find some supplies for our magic bags—blocks of wax, twine, even some papyrus and ink—though I doubt Bes explained to her what they were for. After she left, Bes, Carter and I ordered more food from room service. We sat on the deck and watched the afternoon go by. The breeze from the Mediterranean was cool and pleasant. Modern Alexandria stretched out to our left—an odd mix of gleaming high-rises, shabby, crumbling buildings, and ancient ruins. The shoreline highway was dotted with palm trees and crowded with every sort of vehicle from BMWs to donkeys. From our penthouse suite, it all seemed a bit unreal—the raw energy of the city, the bustle and congestion below —while we sat on our veranda in the sky eating fresh fruit and the last melting bits of Lenins head." - Author: Rick Riordan

Quotes About Mma Losing

"When I composed those verses I was preoccupied less with music than with an experience—an experience in which that beautiful musical allegory had shown its moral side, had become an awakening and a summons to a life vocation. The imperative form of the poem which specially displeases you is not the expression of a command and a will to teach but a command and warning directed towards myself. Even if you were not fully aware of this, my friend, you could have read it in the closing lines. I experienced an insight, you see, a realization and an inner vision, and wished to impress and hammer the moral of this vision into myself. That is the reason why this poem has remained in my memory. Whether the verses are good or bad they have achieved their aim, for the warning has lived on within me and has not been forgotten. It rings anew for me again to-day, and that is a wonderful little experience which your scorn cannot take away from me." - Author: Hermann Hesse

"Wait—no, not drifting. Following us. "We have an audience," I said to Reth, nodding at the clusters of flying insects."I suppose we cant make the Dark Queen any angrier with us than she already is," he said, then his perfect mouth moved, silently forming words, and he gracefully waved his hands through the air in a semicircle. The warm breeze suddenly froze, and I saw frost eat across the nearest butterflies wings. They stopped midair, then dropped to the ground with tiny clinking noises, frozen solid.A serene smile spread across Reths face.

Quotes About Haphazard

"A beginning is that which does not itself follow anything by causal necessity, but after which something naturally is or comes to be. An end, on the contrary, is that which itself naturally follows some other thing, either by necessity, or as a rule, but has nothing following it. A middle is that which follows something as some other thing follows it. A well constructed plot, therefore, must neither begin nor end at haphazard, but conform to these principles." - Author: Aristotle

Lorsque vous verrez ces lignes, vous saurez que le Prince du ciel est à votre porte." - Author: Anne Robillard
