Summer Reading - Hunger Games

...started to become brave and wasen't scared all of the time. He had gained hope and thought he had a chance to survive the games and get back to his family safe. 3. One of the three most significant and memorable quotes to me is "My fingers stretch out, seeking Prim’s warmth but finding only the rough canvas cover of the mattress. She must have had bad dreams and climbed in with our mother. Of course, she did. This is the day of the reaping." Katniss Everdeen, p. 3. This is rememorable to me because it lets us know how badly Prim Katniss sister felt the day of the reaping and how she seek her mother for protection.It also lets us know that Katniss knows her sister very well and feels really bad for her. The reader after reading that quote will feel and have some sort of reference about how the people of that district felt about the reaping coming around each year. Prim being so young this her first year that she is eligble to particpate in the Hunger Games so she has no idea whats it like to have a chance to be placed into the games. Katniss being older had already been thru the reaping many times and has never been picked so Katniss know's how the reaping works and has more knowledge of how things work. On top of all that she has great skills and abilites even if she gets picked she has a way higher chance to survive then if her sister Prim gets picked.My fingers stretch out, seeking Prim’s warmth but finding only the rough canvas cover of the mattress...

...Khiree Cross Ap Summer Reading Assignment The Awakening By: Kate Chopin July 18, 2013 Part One The setting of The Awakening so far is in the Grand Isle, a popular place for a summer vacation where wealthy people go. The Grand Isle is a spot where all the wealthy Creoles, from New Orleans, go for the summer to relax, and have fun. The time setting seems to be in the early 1900s because of the things they do and the lack of technology. The husband of Edna, Leonce, go away on a trip and on this trip he sends her chocolates which no one in the present time eats anymore. The tone of The Awakening at the start is a relaxed and peaceful one. As the story progresses is becomes a more serious and emotional one. It is serious because Leonce feels as if his wife is carless for her family. She doesn't show too much love nor is affection towards them and that becoming a problem. It is also emotional because Edna is clueless to what he is talking about and feels bad after he tells her off before he leaves for his trip. She is lost and wants to find her own independence, or find herself. Part Two The three characters that I will characterize from this book are Edna, Madamoiselle, and Robert. Edna is a caring and loving wife and mother. She is married to a rich businessman Leonce who is the provider for their family. In the story so far Edna seems as if she is lost or missing something. She seems tired of the lifestyle she is living and is nonchalant about everything. She likes......

Project Proposal for Book Reading Habits

...PROJECT PROPOSAL BOOK READING HABITS OF PRIVATE SENIOR HIGH SCHOOLS AS OPPOSED TO PUBLIC SENIOR HIGH SCHOOLS KOBINA AMISSAH-AYIKU RHODA ANSU YEBOAH PROJECT SUPERVISOR DR. AMANKWAH INTRODUCTION “Reading habits” refers to the behaviour which expresses the liking for reading of individual types and tastes of reading (Sangkaeo 1999). More or less, it refers to the different tastes that individuals have in terms of reading. Book reading is an essential part of any developing nation. Iheanacho (2007) opined that a healthy reading culture has a pivotal role to play in the social, economic and technological development of any country. All the developed nations that exist in our world today are where they are because they managed to obtain a high level of reading and so therefore have expanded their understanding of life. To Holte (1998), the importance of reading is essential to full participation in modern society because it adds value to life and provides access to culture and cultural heritage. We can therefore see the importance of reading in our everyday lives. PROBLEM STATEMENT In the study, we intend to find out if our Senior High School students have been able to adopt good reading habits which might be beneficial to themselves and the nation as a whole. We raise the issue of book reading habits because we feel that our fellow Ghanaians do not actively engage themselves in reading which will be able to develop them really well. This statement is based on our......

...Reading Assessment I once again chose a child to work with that I am familiar with. The student is a male child of Hispanic decent. The student comes from a household which is considered middle class and both parents that reside in the household are working parents. The mother is a college graduate and works in the education field as a high school teacher. The father did not attend college and is the head of the maintenance department at a local area school district. Both of the child’s parents have worked since the child was born and the child stayed with grandparents or at a daycare facility until the child reached the age to begin school. The child has a younger brother who will begin school the next school year. In talking with the parents the feeling was the grandparents treated the child very well and read to the child on a daily basis when the child was in the grandparents care and the child has a great love for school and strives to be the very best in his class. The male child is about to turn seven years old and is in the first grade. The child attends a school that the mother and father are not employed and the grandparents are responsible for picking the child up after the school day is complete. The parents are very involved in the students’ school work and provide support for the student every evening when they are at home. In visiting with the student before we began our reading assessment I found the student to be very mindful and attentive. We......

...Mary Amaral Ms. Masso URI Writing 12 August 2014 The Bell Jar- Elements Of Voice Elements of Voice: diction, detail, imagery, syntax, and tone. 1. Diction - Oblog (pg. 3) Diction can be defined as style of speaking or writing determined by the choice of words by a speaker or a writer. Diction or choice of words separates good writing from bad writing. It depends on a number of factors. 2. Detail – “I still have the makeup kit they gave me, filled out for a person with brown eyes and brown hair; an oblog of brown mascara with a tiny brush, anda round basin of blue eye shadow just big enough to dab the tip of your finger in, and three lipsticks ranging from red to pink, all cased in the same little glit bx with a mirror on one side”. Imagery means to use figurative language to represent objects, actions and ideas in such a way that it appeals to our physical senses. This is considered detail and imagery (#3) for the following reasons: * Included observations, color to description, visual imagery, verbal representation of sensory experience, both because you can visualize all of the make up and the colors. - Another example of detail from the book “The Bell Jar” is (pg. 210) “I looked with love at the lineup of waiting trays- the white paper napkins, folded in their crisp, isosceles triangles, each under the anchor of its silver fork, the pale domes of soft-boiled eggs in the blue egg cups, the scalloped glass shells of orange marmalade”.

Summer Reading on the Metamorphosis by Franz Kafka

...have a few faint memories from when I was younger and he would come over to play with me, my brother and a few other friends. One time he was climbing up the monkey bars in my back yard and my brother and his friends were making fun of him because he didn’t know better than one of my brothers friends ran up and pulled his pants down. He got very upset and ran inside but they thought it wouldn’t do anything because he didn’t know better and they did it to him because he was different. He was an outcast because he didn’t look and act like everyone else. Because they thought this they mistreated him. Those are a few ways people mistreat the outcasts of the world. In conclusion to this paper I would have to say the message and point of this reading is treat others how you want to be treated regardless of how they may act or look. Just because they are different doesn’t mean they are less than anyone else....

Summer Internship Project

...FINAL (SUMMER) INTERNSHIP REPORT BY EMMANUEL EKIBA BAGENDA On secondment by the International Human Rights Program (at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law), I served as an intern with the Uganda Human Rights Commission (UHRC) during the summer of 2006. My internship lasted from May to August and, during this time, I worked under the immediate supervision of Mrs Christine Birabwa Nsubuga (who heads the Legal and Tribunals Section of the UHRC) and Mr Remmy Beauregard (who is the UHRC’s Institutional Development Advisor). Substantive Engagements The main project on which I worked during the internship was a comparative analysis between the UHRC’s legal framework and that of other national (and provincial) human rights commissions in a range of countries, including Malawi, South Africa, Canada, and Ghana. The primary aim of all this was to highlight ways in which the UHRC’s legal framework could be buttressed in a manner that facilitated the promotion of human rights in Uganda. The working hypothesis, in other words, was that the UHRC could overcome some of the institutional and substantive challenges it faced by drawing upon the normative frameworks of its correspondent institutions in other jurisdictions. Background work on this particular project had been done by the University of Toronto Working Group on Uganda, and had yielded an initial framework of responses to be refined by concrete experiences acquired during the internship. In refining the initial......

A Summer Reading

...A Summer’s Reading Respect is a very dominant and important factor in the story of Bernard Malamud, “A Summer’s Reading.” The reach for respect from the people around him causes a lot of dilemma within the main character, George Stoyonovic. And those dilemmas led to consequences that George hated. George, a high school drop out, can not get any job during one summer. He decides to read the magazines found at home. But when he met Mr. Cattanzara, he immediately lies about the hundred books he is reading, in order for Mr. Cattanzara to respect him as well as to be proud of him. Respect is a form of acknowledgement of one’s existence. Respect is very important to everybody. Respect also gives a person a sense of confidence that he is not a failure and contradicts the idea that he is not good enough. People want respect because they want others to know how good they are. Though everybody wants it, most people often take it for granted. The irony of it all is that people wants it so much that they would do anything just to get it. In the story, the theme Respect is very important for everybody was shown a couple of times. An example of these scenes is when George was contemplating whether or not he should attend the night classes. “He has considered registering in a night high school, only he did not like the idea of teachers always telling him what to do. He felt that they had not respected him.” He decides that since he has......

...Guidelines For Summer Project IMT Institute of Management Technology GHAZIABAD Guidelines, Procedures and Rules for Summer Project This manual gives guidelines, procedures and rules for the Summer Project. Objective The objective of having a Summer Project Report is to allow the students to organize and report the learning gained in the program and the summer project. The Summer Project Report should be a substantive contribution to the knowledge through integration of literature review and methodology developed pertinent to the understanding and resolution of management problems, and the empirical work done therein. The Summer Project Report should demonstrate competence in using or developing a model or a set of hypotheses, collecting and interpreting data, reaching conclusions and drawing implications for managerial practices. It should also highlight the impact of actions in one area or function, on the other area or functions in the organisation. The recommendations made in the Summer Project Report should be in both quantitative (costs and benefits) as well as qualitative terms, as far as possible. It is pertinent to note that the Summer Project Report represents a visible concrete output and would, therefore, have demonstrable potential enabling individuals to pursue further work on the theme by way of Ph.D. programme. It is also the output which may stand as testimony of the student's demonstrated skills and potential in the managerial......
