I Teach Therefore I Can - I Teach Therefore I Can George Bernard Shaw wrote that “He who can, does. He who cannot, teaches.” Based on this statement, Shaw was either able to do everything or was a poor teacher. A teacher must be able to do and then teach it to others. In order to do this, a teacher must first obtain the skills him/herself. Teachers have the responsibility of providing their students with the skills necessary for success later in life, and the most essential skills are the ability to read and write....   [tags: Teaching Teachers Education Essays]

Defining Myself through Writing - Defining Myself through Writing I can write in various voices and styles and about various topics; with each piece I hope to represent different aspects of who I am. I need not say "This is me", but I show through now and then; sometimes more strongly than others as can be assumed. In writing I allow my true self to show, I can express myself and experiment with different styles. I will warn you that my writing is never too risqué, I remain quite practical and composed.

Introduction I wanted desperately to learn to juggle, probably because my dad was trying to learn. I felt like he was approaching the whole act as a science and I saw it as an art form. My father continued to destroy fruit in the house every winter for three years until he finally gave up. His act was painful to watch.

I am the Decadent Writer - I am the Decadent Writer I am the epitome of everything that makes the decadent writer its own category. There are many types of writers. The symbolic poetry writer thinks that the only true form of writing is poetry so obscure as to be understood only by the writer himself. The personal writer writes articles or poems so personal as to make the reader uncomfortable to just be reading the words, regardless if he knows the author or not.

How I Learned To Become Literate - How I Learned To Become Literate As a six-month-old baby books had opened up a whole entire new world of experience for me. My inspiration to learn how to read and write was encouraged by my Mother and Grandmother.

Frederick Douglass: Escaping Slavery through Literacy - ... Nevertheless, Douglass was determined to earn this “valuable bread of knowledge” (2056). Reading was the “silver trump of freedom” (2057) to Douglass. Reading opened his eyes to his “wretched condition” (2057) and he longed for independence and freedom. He did not desire this for himself alone, but also for his fellow slaves. He “imbue[d] their minds with thoughts of freedom” and sought to “impress them with the gross fraud and inhumanity of slavery” (2077). Douglass took the lead in devising the plans of escape; his skill in reading and writing was instrumental in his plans....   [tags: Literacy] 711 words

Coming Full Circle - Coming Full Circle Roger Sale, a former professor at the University of Washington says, "I can't know what I want until I see something I like." This is said in response to the common question asked by students, "What do you want our papers to be about?" Hearing this must get tiresome for teachers as well as students. Sale, in his essay on "The Relationships Struck Between Writer and Reader, Reader and Writer, Student and Teacher, Teacher and Student", suggests not telling the student exactly what is wanted, to be flexible and "suggest to all students that what is important is what they think, not what the teacher thinks."

racism - One sentence that summarizes economics is, “there’s no such thing as a free lunch.” Sure, anyone can have a lunch and not pay for it, but it still is not free. Everything costs something to someone.

Everything acquired by a person or a community is accompanied by a price, monetary or not.

The Literate Arts Are Not Needed: They Are Wanted - ... Because of this skills that Rodriguez gained from the literate arts, he was able to see the disconnect between his scholarly world and his home life. Rodriguez was able to see that he had lost something, and with the tools he and gained he was able to seek out what was needed to remake that connection.
