Preface To the Student Improving Your Vocabulary Five Techniques for Acquiring Words Using Context Clues Using Print and Online Dictionaries Practice Selection Dave Barry Tips for Women: How to Have a Relationship with a Guy Wen++re not talking about different wavelengths here
Wen++re talking about different planets, in completely different solar systems
Elaine cannot communicate meaningfully with Roger about their relationship any more than she can meaningfully play chess with a duck
Because the sum total of Rogern++s thinking on this particular topic is as follows: Huh? Comprehension Worksheet
Getting Started: Practicing the Basics Identifying the Main Idea and Writern++s Purpose
The Difference Between Fiction and Nonfiction The Difference Between an Article and an Essay
Identifying the Main Idea in Paragraphs
Implied Main Ideas Thesis Statements in Articles and Essays
Identifying the Writern++s Purpose Pamela Grim Care in Midair The helicopter took another shaking plunge
As I tried to hold on to the side of the cart, the laryngoscope tumbled out of my hand
I fell after it and caught it as I landed facedown on my seat
This man is going to die now, I thought; no one as sick as he is could survive this
But I would get him reintubated, no matter what
Pete Jordan Head Dishwasher? n++In++m a dishwasher,n++ I told the guy, n++who happens to write
n++ n++Well, mister-dishwasher-not-a-writer,n++ he said, n++where do you wash dishes?n++ n++Nowhere right now,n++ I said
n++This is a tough town for a dishman
n++ n++Thatn++s n++cause youn++re too white for the job,n++ he said
Joe Abbott To Kill a Hawk It was the summer of 1971, and a dozen friends and I had driven down the breathtakingly steep and tortuous road into Shelter Cove in southern Humboldt County to camp on the black sand beaches
We were pretty young then, and ill-prepared, and we quickly gobbled down our meager food supplies
So I and a couple others went down into the cove to poach abalones among the rocks. Rose Guilbault School Days n++What is that?n++ Mona scrunched her nose at my doll
n++Donn++t you have a Barbie?n++ The other girls twittered
What was a Barbie? I wondered
And why was my doll looked down on? I felt embarrassed and quickly stuffed my unworthy toy back into the paper bag
I would not be invited to play with them again
Cornelia Bailey Still Gullah At age 52 I am the last of a generation to be born, raised and schooled on Sapelo, a little Sea Island off the Georgia coast
I am one of only 74 people left on the island, all of us descendants of West Africans brought here to work the cotton, sugar, rice and tobacco plantations established in the 1800s
Judith Lewis Walk on the Wilshire Side . . . a few miles west, where Wilshire intersects the fabled retail fantasyland of Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, the stares begin
Itn++s not often, in this deeply segregated city, that a small crowd of black and Latino teenagers traipses through these moneyed streets
Women with Botoxed foreheads and surgically stretched cheeks perch at sidewalk cafn++ tables, blinking bewilderedly like some odd species of bird
Charles Finney The Life and Death of a Western Gladiator The direct rays of the sun could, in a short time, kill him
If the temperature dropped too low he would freeze
Without food he would starve
Without moisture he would die of dehydration
If a man or a horse stepped on him he would be crushed
If anything chased him he could run neither very far nor very fast
Thus it was at the hour of his birth
Thus it would be, with modifications, all his life.
