Act One : Personal Response

- Act One Personal Response Learning about the Bible in a set of Six Acts is not something that is new to me, but going into as much detail as the textbook does is something new to me. One quote from the first chapter is “God’s creation is, “good,” and this creaturely goodness merely highlights the Creator’s own incomparable goodness, wisdom, and justice.” I think that it can be extremely easy for us to look over the idea of God saying that all of creation is good. This ties in close with the focus that we are made in God’s image, and what this means....   [tags: Christianity, Jesus, Adam and Eve, Thought]

Personal Response For The Early Childhood Educator

- Personal Response As someone who places great emphasis on content mastery and intellectual integrity, the classicist approach is one that most closely mirrors my educational style. I believe that exposure to an array of subjects, philosophies, and materials can broaden a student’s understanding of the world around them. Classicists strive to bring subject material to life in the most mentally stimulating methods possible, which is another tenet with which I agree. Likewise, the classroom environment is also important as it can inspire imagination and further academic pursuit....   [tags: Education, Learning, Knowledge, Teacher]

It is simple in that it is two misshapened columns, but the emotions that it invokes are powerful. It highlights the race to the top of the proverbial food chain that we are all trying to win.

Imperfect Endings by Zoe Fitzgerald Carter

- My first thought when I started reading Imperfect Endings was that it was going to be a depressing story about a selfish woman who planned to end her life, and her loving daughter who was dragged into her mother's complicated life. How wrong I was. It was really about the struggle of a daughter, and the suffering of a mother with their fair share of setbacks. The tension slowly faded when Carter distributed generous intervals of humour in between and at serious points of the memoir. I began to unearth and piece together the messages that were scattered throughout the book....   [tags: personal response]

Poe’s plot is to vividly describe the four specific points in this person’s life. He does this by utilizing the various sounds of bells and giving them some human characteristics.

The Poetry of Emily Dickinson

- Emily Dickinson has always been one of my favorite poets. I love her poems because of the pain and sorrow they contain to which I can easily relate. She often writes of funerals and death. I myself have watched too many friends die and have wondered why God would let this happen. At every funeral, some well meaning mourner would say--,"The Lord called him" or "She's with Jesus now." My gut reaction was always, "Bullshit." Then Emily Dickinson's poem "My Life Closed Twice Before its Close" would come to mind, especially the last two lines--,"Parting is all we know of Heaven and all we need of hell."

All three sources share a common underlying theme of happiness and what it means to the individual....   [tags: independence, freedom, philosophical analysis]

Solely from the use of these tools, as well as the reader’s vocabulary, will a reader interpret the words in front of him or her. Reader Response Criticism argues this very point.
