Tüm kitap kulübü grubum bu kitabın rutubetli bir el sıkışma gibi olduğunu belirledi. Ve kimse rutubetli el sıkışmasını sevmiyor.
Bu kitabı çok beğendim. Kesinlikle bir kadın gücü hissediyorum vardı. Konu ilginçti ve karakterler iyi yazılmıştı. Biraz dil ve birkaç müstehcen yorum vardı - bu nedenle 4 yerine 3 yıldız.
Real-life examples, tools for teaching and assessing students, sample minilessons, and lots of fabulous ideas for teaching literacy. Worthwhile to look through if starting literature circles, reading/writing workshop, or looking for ideas on teaching elements of literacy.
According to my list, The Private Patient is the last of the Dalgleisch novels (although I will check). It follows that attractive formula James has practiced through fourteen other books, a technique that is so familiar by now but still works enchantingly well.
I feel like I've just volunteered myself for a mafia hit by only rating this at three stars, but I stand by that choice. Still, my ego is prompting me to explain that decision. Why did I read The Dead? I haven't heard a lot about James Joyce. In fact, earlier than about two months ago, I'd never even heard of The Dead. Of course, after hearing about it, I read that in many critical opinions, it is considered to be (drumroll please) THE BEST SHORT STORY EVER WRITTEN. That is why I decided to read it. I have historically struggled with short stories. Some I like, but most of them are just "meh" for me. Why is this? I'm not really sure. By reading The Dead, I was hoping to figure this out. The story revolves around one evening, a party thrown by Misses Kate, Julia, and Mary Jane. The story centers primarily around Conroy - his social awkwardness during the event and the culminating feelings events of that evening produce towards his wife as they prepare to leave. I am by no means a literary critic, but I've read enough that I feel as if my opinion is built on a solid foundation (most of the times). This is one of those instances in which I'm supremely doubting myself because, of course, The Dead has been touted as the best short story ever and I feel like it was just okay. However, I do feel like there is definitely something there, just beneath, that I haven't quite managed to completely consider. Perhaps if/when I reread this again, it will finally click.
I really like this study Bible because it goes through the historical context - which has helped me understand much more in my reading. It has profiles of many people in the Bible, and helps you draw lessons from the reading as you go along.
