Elizabeth L. T. commented on Yelin Ha's blog post Yelin's Dazzling Summer Reading Reviews
"This is a really interesting list, and I like how you compared and contrasted the plots. I haven't read after, and I don't know if I will because of how you said the book was ruined for you, I feel like I would agree. However, I have read…"

Yelin Ha replied to Jacob Rowden's discussion No-Zero Grading Policy: Beneficial or politically-correct?
"It would help students but in a bad way. It would also be unfair to those who actually worked. Our grades are ultimately our responsibility so WE should be earning them. For students having a 'bad month', yes, it may help, but…"

Yelin Ha commented on Allie Oakes's blog post The Book That Made Me Want To Read Again.
"I personally love memoirs so I'll add this one to my list. And yes I've had times when I didn't read for long periods of time. I definitely had to stop reading this year because there was just so much stuff to…"

Yelin Ha commented on Caili Chen's blog post The Downside of Book Series
"Yeah it's not the same to read a sequel if it has been over a year since the first book came out. To combat that, I think it's a good idea to wait till all the books in a series are out before starting the first one. In addition,…"

Yelin Ha replied to Jiyan Hatami's discussion Last 3 Weeks of School:Any Signs of Slowing Down
"Exactly. A math quiz AND a test in the same week is too much for my brain to handle. Some teachers are trying to be fun, but it backfires(apush movie project). In addition, I have classes where we're obviously not going to finish the material…"

Yelin Ha commented on Tahjae Austin's blog post Free Flow Vs. Organization
"When writing anything, I like to organize beforehand so that I don't start going off on a tangent. However, sometimes it is good to just let your thoughts out onto paper without being too concerned about formatting. I think the choice between…"

Yuri Shibata commented on Yelin Ha's blog post Changes in Taste of Books
"I must agree. I've also gone through a similar change this year. Before this year, I would only read fiction books. I couldn't comprehend why anyone would want to read a nonfiction book. Now, I can't understand why people…"

Changes in Taste of Books

This month, I read Vanish by Sophie Jordan after discovering that it was the sequel to the book Firelight. I remembered reading Firelight last year and loving it so I thought its sequel would be even better. Last year around this time, I was captivated by the book from the first page. The writing style drew me in and I couldn't put it down. However, this year, when I read the sequel, I was surprised to find myself almost bored with it. It seemed a little cliche and uninteresting.I wonder what…See More

Yelin Ha commented on Shannon Bowman's blog post The Maze Runner
"Wow this sounds like a really intense but good read. So is this a maze within our world or in some other, twisted world?"

Yelin Ha commented on Jamey Robar's blog post Message in a Bottle
"This sounds like a good read. It's been a long time since I read a book with older adults as the main characters. Is it called Message in a Bottle?"

Yelin Ha commented on Kristin Tran's blog post ~Vanished~ Part of the Firelight Trilogy
"Woah, I read Firelight but I didn't know it was  a trilogy! Thanks for letting me know! I remember I couldn't put Firelight down so I'm really excited for this new one too."

Yelin Ha commented on Heather McDonough's blog post Divergent: Worth the Hype?
"I haven't read this yet but I've heard it's really good! There are a lot of overlaps in the plot for dystopian society books, but then again, there has to be a reason that this one is so popular versus the other dystopian society…"

The Use of Different Narrators in Novels

This year in Miss Berdick's English class, we read three books that changed narrators: My Antonia, Frankenstein, and Ethan Frome. After reading them, I realized what a tricky task it must be to write with two to three narrators. It seems really hard to manipulate one's writing to carry two different voices and, at the same time, make sure that the reader is following along. While reading Ethan Frome, I realized the narrator changed but got lost trying to guess what age Ethan was after the…See More

"I've been recommended this book many times from friends but I think you did the best explanation of it. It really intrigues me and now I want to know what her reasons behind either choice will be!"

Larissa Magera commented on Yelin Ha's blog post No One Has A Single Story
"Hey, Yelin! This blog post was really interesting because it forces you to face the not-so-good parts of yourself. I think it's impossible for anyone to not have a "single story", but I think it's completely possible for people…"

Yelin Ha commented on David Oh's blog post Home Alone - School
"Hi David. Your blog post brought up a lot of good points. I also know a lot of people who are home schooled because the sport they do, figure skating, requires so much flexibility in their schedule to get enough practice. I think home schooling is a…"

Power of Illustrations

Posted on January 8, 2012 at 6:50pm 0 Comments

 

I think everyone's read or heard about the classic, The Little Princess, by Frances Hogson Burnett. It used to be favorite of mine when I was young. In a children's picturebook version that I had, there were some amazing illustrations. There is one that I still remember today, and it's the scene where the Little Princess buys bread with money she found on the street. But when she's about to bite…

No One Has A Single Story

Posted on October 24, 2011 at 10:31am 1 Comment

              In Critical Thinking, a gifted class offered by Fremd High School, we discussed the dangers of having a 'single story'. A 'single story' is a prejudice or one prevailing idea that one has on something that blocks out all evidence of other aspects of it. I realized how many 'single stories' I…
