What did you read over the holiday? What was your opinion on it?
I started reading further into the book “Stargirl” by Jerry Spinelli, so far, I’ve found it very interesting. The book has made me curious about who Stargirl is and why she acts the way she does. Can’t wait to understand the reasoning behind everything.
Which work do you think would prove to be most useful for writing a literary essay?
I think holes would probably work well for writing a literary essay. The character development throughout the book is significant. Overall I quite enjoyed reading the book.
Which of the works has had the biggest impact on you, and why?
I think “Tipping Point” by Malcolm Gladwell has impacted the way I approach some situations. For example, when doing a civics project where we were supposed to submit a document. I decided I would just submit it instead of leaving it for someone else to submit. Turns out that I was the only one who submitted it. This is similar to the bystander effect, where people expected others to do something, therefore not doing it themselves.
