Freshmen Year by Armando Rojas
Ms. Halusek English 1 - 3 May 2016
First class text
What I learned from this story was how to find the theme of a text and how to find evidence to support it. This text impacted the way I think by showing me how some stories have more then one meaning. For example, in the story Oedipus says, “In my rage, I lashed out at the driver, who was shoving me aside. The old man, seeing me walking past him in the carriage, kept his eye on me, and with his double whip struck me on my head, right here on top. Well, I retaliated in good measure— I hit him a quick blow with the staff I held and knocked him from his carriage to the road. He lay there on his back. Then I killed them all” (Sophocles 27).
Being able to meet this goal would allow me to become a better reader and writer but this would also impact my future classes because it would allow me to write better essays and read books with a better understanding of them.
Meeting this goal would impact my future classes because I would be able to give a response about something and strongly support it with textual evidence and without giving an opinion instead.
