Words By HeartLena can recite the Scriptures by heart Hoping to make her adored Papa proud of her and to make her white classmates notice her Magi Okay so here's a theory I've been working on schools are secretly conspiring to turn all children against reading forever And why do I think this you may ask Well I'm going to tell you Because teachers wouldn't assign such mind numbingly boring books without knowing the conseuences For example a close friend of mine was recently assigned The Odyssey for Honors English This friend usually enjoys myths from all cultures but this was just too much for her in such a short time span It wouldn't be too much of a stretch to say that it totally changed her opinion of mythology What I think is the fault with the way English is taught in schools today is that they're trying to teach literary elements rather than a love of literature Literary elements aren't that important when you leave school but a love of literature is Adults wonder why some kids hate reading books when the answer is right in front of them Kids don't read because that's what school indirectly teach them to do This is not a hate on schools and English teachers rant I usually enjoy most of the books I read in English and my English teachers have always been encouraging Still the majority of good books I've read in my life I've had to find on my own without any guidance My parents aren't exactly the literary types and I doubt my brothers have read anything since high school I'm the bookworm of the family And so now that I've bored you with a rant and useless information about myself I'll get on to my review and why that first paragraph was relevant I wrote all of that because I was assigned to read Words by Heart in middle school and it wasn't something I enjoyed The major contributing factor had to be that I read it in school and therefore dissected it until there was nothing left Another thing I hate about English They dissect things to the point where the words hold no magic for anyone any After all those uizzes and tests on this miniscule 135 page book I was sick of it And let's not forget the snail speed rate we were forced to read it at Two chapters were do a week I could've finished this in one sitting Reading so slow definitely took away some of the fun in reading this Of course there is also the fact that I didn't even enjoy this to start with It's really just a subpar historical fiction book aimed for elementary and middle school students with low reading levels I'd passed this level by the third grade when I read the unabridged version of Little Women to win a reading contest There was just nothing left for me to enjoy The characters were average and the issues overdone if not still realistic There was a nice twist at the end but even that wasn't enough to revive this novel In other words it was perfect to teach a bored middle school classRecommendation Don't read it Hopefully you won't ever have to read it for school
