Longer Recess, Stronger Child Development

Longer Recess, Stronger Child Development | Kim | Scoop.it
With an hour-long recess, elementary schools can help children develop through increased creative play, authentic SEL, and adequate physical regulation.
Kimberly's insight:
The writer is very direct with the purpose and in the beginning of the article I really like how she includes her opinion about recess. The sentence type is complex and the tone is happy because the sentence “Their energy as they trickle into the classroom is almost palpable” shows it. This reading is logos, since it's persuading the audience to make recess longer so children can be more focus and creative. Concrete language is used in the first paragraph the last sentence contains the word talking. At the end the conclusion returns to ideas in the thesis and further develops them.

Olympian Mary Joy Tabal dropped by PH national team

Olympian Mary Joy Tabal dropped by PH national team | Kim | Scoop.it
Tabal, the first Filipina to qualify for the Olympic marathon, is no longer part of the national team
Kimberly's insight:
The article" Olympian Mary Joy by PH National Team' audience is Filipinos because Mary Joy was the first Filipina to qualify for the Olympic marathon. In this article I see that the writer is trying to informal his audience that Mary is no longer part of the national team because she finished in 124th place. Also the photo in this article is from her face book and there is a quote she says at the end of the article. In addition this article persuasion is pathos because the argument is convincing the audience by creating an emotional response. I chose this article because I did track and field for two years and at the beginning I wasn't as good as my other teammates but then I train hard and I could see I was getting faster. However there other girls who were faster than me but that only made me train harder and push myself. I'm glad that Mary is still training to reach her dreams.

Why Identity and Emotion are Central To Motivating the Teen Brain

Why Identity and Emotion are Central To Motivating the Teen Brain | Kim | Scoop.it
Adolescence could be a time of explosive academic learning if what's taught can be connected to the central preoccupation of young people -- their identities.
Kimberly's insight:

The article “Why Identity and Emotion are Central to Motivating Teen Brain” by Emmeline Zhao audience is adolescent and the purpose of his article is to make adolescent fall in love with learning but they must seek exploration, attitude, motivation and set goals for yourself. This article is formal language for example “Within the tumult of pre-teens or teens is an opportunity to enhance their desire and interest to learn”. In addition the writer is trying to persuade adolescent to change how adolescent feel about learning and be excited. In the meantime while you are an adolescent you will change physically ,socially, mentally and emotionally. I choosed this article because growing up I have always had difficulties in learning new things due to my learning disability.  Furthermore he uses quotation and that's very good because it builds the antici[ation for the story to come.

Why Identity and Emotion are Central To Motivating the Teen Brain | Kim | Scoop.it
Adolescence could be a time of explosive academic learning if what's taught can be connected to the central preoccupation of young people -- their identities.
Kimberly's insight:

The article “How To Fall Asleep When You're Too Stressed Out” by Jenna Birch audience is everyone such as, parents and teen except children. Unless they are stree too. I choosed this article because sometimes it hard for me to fall asleep because I worry a lot. While reading the this article I notice she arrange her ideas in chronologically order and the she beings with a question. Therefore I think that's very risks of her because not all writers can grab the reader's interest and make the reader want to keep reading to find out more. However in this case she made a good choice. Also she uses formal language that is reliable and effective. For example “ When you start to feel sleepy again, go back to sleep”. Moreover she used quotations more than twice which provide important pieces of evidence to the audiences.

Everyone's Favorite, a Mouth-Watering Lunch Menu Every Day! - What's Cool - Kids Web Japan - Web Japan

Everyone's Favorite, a Mouth-Watering Lunch Menu Every Day! - What's Cool - Kids Web Japan - Web Japan | Kim | Scoop.it
Elementary and junior high school students in Japan look forward to kyushoku, which is the school lunches provided every day at school.
Kimberly's insight:
This article is ethos because this reading is trustworthy and credible. In both the first paragraph and last paragraph the last sentence ends with a rhetorical question. Also the sentence they may have deep fried chicken one day, hot noodles the next,boiled fish the next day and so on is parallelism because their is a partner in the phrases. In the second paragraph the first sentences starts of by using onomatopoeia which are words that imitate the sound they describe such as in the second paragraph when it says “Ding dong dang dong. “In addition in the sentence “Some students cry out in delight when they find a favorite dish on their plates.”The word cry is an example of a diction word. The tone of this article is joyful because children are excited to see what they'll be eating for lunch.
