Oh my, this is my chance! I can finally tell a teacher what to teach, and you may or may not listen. I have to make this good; really good. I enjoyed the Strange and Mysterious unit a lot. Learned about strange and creepy stories and how difficult it is to put those stories into motion pictures. Now for next year, when a new set of students come in and they are just as eager to start this unit, I have a great set of authors who should be your top pick for your new minions to read about and learn more about their history; R.L Stine, The Brothers Grimm, and my absolutely best pick, Patrick Carman. Now do not worry your head off on why they are great picks because I am going to explain why.
Let us start with my favorite pick! Patrick Carman. Whenever I hear Patrick Carman's name, I think of Skeleton Creek (C P. (2009). Skeleton Creek. (Reprint ed., Vol. 1, p. 144). Scholastic Press: Scholastic), a big scary story series that I personally enjoyed because of the idea of having a book to read, then watch a video on it. I think that would nice for everyone to see. Like when you showed us the short clips of The Landlady and the cartoon version and regular version of The Tell-Tale Heart, you will already have codes for the videos that belong to the story. When I first read the first book, and watched the story clip, I automatically gave it four stars in my head and came up with a quick review. I am not the only person who has given it four stars. Patrick Carman's best selling book has to be Skeleton Creek, the ratings all range from four to five stars, lowest rating being one (everything in the review was spelled wrong anyway). The reviews were from Amazon and I found them absolutely helpful, and I could no...

...opies of all his collections alone. Most of them being turned into scary shows and movies. I like seeing that type of stuff in action. All Goosebumps is really about is creepy tales after eerie tales. I am sure the students next year will enjoy bringing back the good memories. If none of them next year ever heard of R.L Stine, I promise you if you read them one story, they will get hooked.
I hope that I have kept you on your toes the whole time. I am sure I did not but you know, I am just going to leave that to creepy eerie authors (who will even get to you while they are dead) because it is their job. I also hope you will understand where I am coming from when I say that Patrick Carman's Skeleton Creek, The Brothers Grimm haunted fairy-tales, and R.L Stines Goosebumps should be in the running to be learned about and read about next year when I am no longer there.

Statements such as these are demoralizing and have a permanent, lasting impact to the child 's self-worth. Instead, ask “do you understand what is wrong with this answer?”. This allows the child to process the information and come up with a suitable solution. Realizing the difference in the ways in which to approach a child is crucial. We believe that their understanding or the lack thereof is our failure, but this belief is impractical.... [tags: Education, Teacher, Cognition, Mind]

- How Do We Teach. When I first started my service learning, I didn’t know what to expect. In my early journals, I described this nervous and anxious feeling, because I felt that if it went bad, I wouldn’t want to teach anymore. It ended up being the exact opposite. I found my service learning very beneficial. During the on-site orientation, I noticed there was very few or updated resources for the children to use, or activities that applied to all ages. The organization has to use what little funding it receives and make the best of it.... [tags: service, learning, money, students, society]

- To Tell or to Lie Maral Frendjian For modern students, a training in rhetoric such as that offered by Gorgias is more preferable, rather than learning how to distinguish truth from falsehood. It is the art of forceful language, emphasizing figures of speech and focusing on devices for swaying and persuading an audience, that would be most beneficial for students lives today. Despite the fact that it is simply ornamented language to make a good facade, the rhetoric by Gorgias is necessary for the success of students, especially those who would like to "sell" their ideas, products or beliefs to the people (the larger population)....

- Trapped in a Fortune-Cookie Factory with no Stories to Tell Drawing on a distinction between 'primary' and 'secondary' experience derived from J. J. Gibson's ecological psychology, Edward S. Reed argues that our 'psychosocial ills' result from rampant 'degradation of opportunities for primary experience.' That Reed slides easily from 'experience' to 'information' is less due to Gibson's psychology than to the spirit of the time in which he writes: it is a truism that we live in an age of information, where every experience is an act of communication....
