Baker`s relationship is also changing and progress. On the first day of school, Ms. Baker noticed that Holling`s surname was Hoodhood and that he would be with her on Wednesdays instead of ecclesiastical activity. It meant that she would no longer have her free Wednesday. She tried to get him back to grade six mathematics during that time, but that plan didn`t work. Holling felt that Mrs. Baker hated him, even though it probably wasn`t true…. Over the past semester, I have joined traditional conversations, commonly referred to as “CC.” The purpose of this group was to create a safe, calm Christian environment for 15- and 16-year-olds, while learning to speak, discuss and drama in public. Classes were every Monday for 7.5 hours and I was excited! I had decided to make new friends and learn to speak in public, because it was a “safe environment”. After the first week, I was hoping that there would be a way to overcome this fear. But at the end of the second day, a girl had already said to me, “I wish you weren`t here.
I wish you wouldn`t come back, so it was just the people I grew up with. I was disappointed, but the teacher had heard it, so my parents and I were hoping the teacher would do something about it…. I loved reading new stories, but I hated writing it because it generated too much time. I became particularly close with my first year and even attended her wedding. My best friend was Tracy,… He is distracted when he starts reading, but we can tell him to concentrate, and he will listen for a few minutes, etc. When he is ready to explain, my sister starts asking him questions to help him find answers. My cousin, who is now 14, now in high school, has to do all her work on her own because she teaches at home.
If you see the difference in these children, Piadget`s theory seems to be complete… When LaMarian Watkins was a little boy in elementary school, his mother, a future teacher, set him up and told him to read and write two hours a day. His mother wanted to make sure he had a solid level of reading and understanding at a young age. She knew that it was essential to build knowledge on solid foundations. This continued until Mr. Watkins went to Hickory Ridge Middle School in Memphis, TN, where he began writing on his own.
