Rosmellin Barrios's insight:

As more and more years go by people are using technology more. They are so used to just pressing letters on their phones and there messages send. I actually agreed and it reminded me of how back in the day in third grade your teacher would teach you how to hadnwrite and now adays third graders are so into teechnology that they do not need to hand write anthying. Many schools argue that what is the point of handwriting when there is perfectly good keyboards to type. I feel like children should experience both. They should at least attempt to do handwriting and also learn  the basics of a computer and how to type.

Rosmellin Barrios's insight:

The majority of people are very good when it comes to procastination. For some it actually works. I personally work very well when im under pressure and i am procastinating. However, it is a very bad habit. In this article there are different techniques that you could use so you do not procastinate. One of them is time blocking.  You basically make time for everything that you have to do. If you actually to your work this technique will actually work. Another technique is the bullet journal. You write down every thing you have to do and once you are done with whatever it is you could just cross it off.

Rosmellin Barrios's insight:

North Providence higschool showed how proficient  there reading and writing skills were. Over ninety percent of the school did much better.  There was also an elemantary school that showed so much improvent. However, in math they only went up by one point.  The school most lkely got different studying and learning techniques. I think this is very good because the teachers and students are both doing there job. And of course there is always room for more improvement.

Procrastination affects everyone to some degree or another. It is the act or habit of procrastinating, or putting off or delaying, especially something requiring immediate attention. (RT @cranendonk Procrastination.

Procastination is when you leaave something until the very last minute. It is something that everyone has done at least once in there lives throughout school years. Some people actually work very well under pressure and they get there work done. Unfortunately that is not the case for everyone. There is people that when they leave something until the last minute they tend to freak out and they do not complete there task. It just depends on the type of person that you are.

You could write anything you want.  Even anything that has to do with the social media. Some people are so used to writing online that when they do not have internet connection they get frustrated about it. Every  person has there own style of writing.

Reading About Writing (A Beginning) | Katy Watkins

If you had told me six months ago that I'd enjoy reading a book about writing, I wouldn't have believed you. I don't hate writing or anything, but learning about it does not fall under things I would call fun or enjoyable.
Rosmellin Barrios's insight:

Some people do not really enjoy reading and writing. Some might find reading very boring. But it actually isn't. You have to give it a shot. Sometimes the book is very interesting and you just want to read more and more. Certain authors  use so many adjectives that as your  reading you have an image in your head of what you are reading. Sometimes the books are much more better then the movies. Just like this person in the current event, they really didn't lke reading and she gave it a chance and now she acutally likes reading.
