A study of the language. The study branches into multiple topics. Such topics can include grammar, which basically, to my feeble 13-year-old mind, applies to everything. Spelling, using letters in a word correctly. And studying the types of words, such as nouns and verbs. Also, the study also applies heavily to writing.
How to write:
- Get a piece of paper.
- Get a pencil.
- Make the pencil tip touch the paper. No, not the eraser, you dope! Yes, the lead! The little gray thingy!
- Make strokes that form a letter. Not in the YMCA pool – the paper!
- Congrats. You wrote something.
You usually learn in English class how to write all sorts of things, like letters, essays, and documents such as this! Now, before I expire from boredom in the middle of my rather boring Academic Assist class, I shall stop here and do something else, like stare at the repeating Power Point slideshow on the television screen.
**No eighth graders were harmed in the writing of this essay, although a Mom let out a hearty guffaw and an English teacher suggested it for publication in the school’s literary magazine. It might be suggested that the author learn the difference between a “document” and a “documentary” but hey – we’ll take what we can get.
