NON DISNEY POST
Feel the love, ladies and gentlemen. Even if it doesn’t come with Mickey Mouse ears.
Whelp. There goes my night.
I ain’t even mad.
$3 for a pack of skittles my ass.
me and my friend snuck in chipotle once XD
You and your friend are EPIC. I must try that…
I also sneak in a can of soda/pop so there! :D
I remember my mom putting cans of soda in my brother’s cargo shorts.
LOL, I’ve snuck in Subway, Starbucks (very tricky but do-able), Panera (sandwiches not soup haha), and once a bag of white cheddar popcorn… basically anything that will fit in my giant purse.
It’s a time-honored family tradition.
Whilst looking up a ‘Twilight’ parody novel, I’d heard about it around the inter-web, on Amazon.com I came across a book called:
Defining Twilight: Vocabulary Workbook for Unlocking the SAT, ACT, GED, and SSAT http://tinyurl.com/25wh6lp
What?! Now, I’m all for being relevant in education— teaching kids on their level. That said— NOBODY should be using Twilight to teach ANY concept for the verbal portion of ANY test! Ever!
Stephanie Meyer uses quite the vocabulary in her books, I’ll admit; (Yes, I have read them. I wouldn’t have any right to mock them had I not.) but just using a huge vocabulary doesn’t mean your writing is any good. At all. Meyer is an unreliable writer, she is all over the map; her writing is too vague in places and far too unnecessarily specific in others. Her imagery is worse than— well, there really is no comparison. I have no idea how she is published.
‘Twilight’ will not help a student’s reading comprehension in any way— there are problems in structure and grammar, adds in ‘big words’ haphazardly, and has a writing style that ranges from dull and unimaginative to downright bizarre and even simply incorrect. (Stephanie Meyer + Science = Wrong) Her word choice and diction sounds as if Thesaurus.com is open the whole time she is writing and she just copy/pastes whatever word sounds good in her head at the time. The ‘Twilight’ books just do not measure up to the standards of literature that we should be teaching students. If specific examples are needed I’ll post some, but I think you get the point.
Twilight is a pitiful imitation of real literature. And trying to use a teen’s misguided passion for a fictional archetype to teach them how to awkwardly insert ‘intelligent’ SAT words into their comprehension of text is merely manipulation, it is definitely not education. Besides, the teen that you would buy this book for isn’t learning the words themselves, they are learning the words as Edward Cullen uses them— most of the time inserted as a non sequitur or by using questionable grammar.
Case in point— the word ‘gratuitous’ is even used incorrectly in the product description of the book on Amazon.com! —“Can you resist the allure of Edward’s myriad charms—his ocher eyes and tousled hair, the cadence of his speech, his chiseled alabaster skin, and his gratuitous charm?” That is not the place for that word.
Being relevant to students does not have to mean buying in to whatever they happen to like at the moment. No, its about making connections. Connecting their life to their education; the relevance of why this learning is important and how it is beneficial and impacting; not just somehow mushing together what they need to pass the ‘test’ and whatever they’d rather be doing than sitting in school and writing ‘I <3 Edward Cullen’ on their notebooks.
Also, this assumes that an intelligent teenager who is looking to better their score on said tests would even be looking for a ‘Twilight’ prep book. In my experience, most of the teens who like Twilight *this much* aren’t really worried about their test scores. They’ve all fallen under the spell of Edward Cullen and have stopped breathing like Bella seems to do every other paragraph. Most intelligent teens rightly mock ‘Twilight’ and the really intelligent ones never read it.
The only consolation I find in the whole Twilight saga is that ‘Bella Swan’s’ favorite book is Wuthering Heights- it is mentioned repeatedly. Well, it isn’t my favorite book per se, but the fact that some girl or guy somewhere might pick up that actual work of literary merit and read it because ‘Bella Swan’ loves it, is slightly redeeming.
The popularity of Twilight makes it an easy connector to current teens- but with books like “Defining Twilight” we are telling the students that anything popular is somehow useful or worthy, when any sensible person knows that this is NOT TRUE. Everything worth having comes with a cost and what is popular is not always (or usually) right.
In Conclusion I have a few notes:
Dear English teachers,
Please use books with literary merit to teach SAT prep. Actually, only teach books with literary merit in school. If they could have written it, you needn’t teach it to them. Your students may actually get into college, and travel there with actual knowledge about reading comprehension instead of a head full of vampires and bad grammar/imagery. Love, Caroline
Dear Brian Leaf M.A. (author of ‘Defining Twilight’)
You have a Master’s degree, (and a successful SAT prep empire) and you stoop to Stephanie Meyer’s level for reading comprehension source material? I want you to re-examine your motives. If they are simply profit (combining two popular things: SAT Prep and Twilight) and you don’t care about the actual student’s learning, then job well done. If not, then WHY?! Please stop manipulating the youth of America, the media does that well enough.
O.K. rant over now.
