Speeches!

"I really enjoy speeches when I'm just listening to my classmates give theirs, but once it's my turn... Not so much."

"Claire, I know that you LOVED this book (meaning you wouldn't talk to or socialize with any of your friends, and instead just cried and read this book for a week) and I really am excited to read it. I love your blog about it, and it only made…"

"Books that evoke emotion within people of all generations are the best because they allow us all to come togeather around something. I think this would be an interesting read."

An Extra Read: The Fault in our Stars

Although I had already read and blogged about my 4th quarter independent reading book, I recently read another story that made me laugh, cry, and question a lot. The Fault in our Stars by John Green is a story about a 16 year old cancer patient named Hazel who falls madly in love with a boy named Augustus. Augustus has been cancer free for a little while, and the chances are good that he'll never get it again. From the beginning of the story, I thought that I knew how the book would turn out.…See More

"Hey Claire! When I saw this, especially the end part with the blog, I kind of did a happy dance. I love, love this book and have a special connection to it. It was a terrible day because I found out someone I'd been in treatment with died. I…"

"Thanks for posting, Claire. When I graduated high school, I'm a little ashamed to say that I borrowed this book from a classmate who said it was "the greatest book she'd ever read" and, well, I "forgot" to give it back…"

Ordinary People - A More-Than-Ordinary Book

For my fourth quarter reading book, I chose the story
Ordinary People by Judith Guest. Called a book for all ages,
Ordinary People really captures the lives of a seemingly perfect family to show that everybody has their own problems and struggles. This fantastic book switches of between the perspective of Conrad, a troubled teenage boy, and his father who is facing problems with his marriage and worrying about his son. Conrad seems like the typical teenage boy. He’s a fantastic swimmer, has a…See More

Claire Latourette commented on Alaina McCaffrey's blog post Is the premise of children reading The Hunger Games morally sound?
"I think you make a really interesting point Alaina! Catcher in the Rye seems tame compared to the idea of children killing eachother. I think that because the premise of the story is so out there and ridiculous, people tend to not focus on the…"

Claire Latourette commented on Caroline Prescott's blog post Monthly Book Blog: Dear John
"Great blog, Care! I'd have to say that I agree with you, I was skeptical before reading this book too. Especially with all the hype the movie got, it seemed a little unrealistic and too typical teenage love story. I was surprised when I…"

Working By Studs Terkel

Posted on March 16, 2012 at 12:34pm 3 Comments

For my 3rd quarter reading book, I picked up Working by Studs Terkel, and I loved it! When Ms. Berdick announced the show for Group Interp, I was very interested and wanted to know as much as I could for my audition. I found Working in the library, and was so worried about reading it. The book is huge! At first, I read only a couple of interviews just to get the feel of it before I auditioned. Once auditions were over though, I ended up reading the rest of them. It’s filled with a…

Many English kids know that if your teacher is wonderful and fantastic, you’ll be coming down to the auditorium Wednesday and Thursday to see Group Interpretation and Contest Play! What I’ve noticed though, is that a lot of students at Fremd don’t actually know what this is, or why you get to miss class for it. I mean, you get to miss a couple of periods, so nobody questions why you’re headed to Kolze auditorium; I can’t blame you, I know I wouldn’t either!

I’m sure a lot of you know,…
