You are standing at a pivotal crossroads once again in your life, not unlike the time frame during your 10th to 11th year. What year was it when you were 10-11 years old? What was the decidedly prominent focus occurring in the local, national, and worlds news? This information can be found on the internet should you be so inclined, interested and vested enough to search for it. What you turn over from the soil of discontent will prove to be surprising and relevant. The undisputed fact that everything is connected shows its true light during this dark search. It was during this phase of your individual life, that an element of unexpressed talent can be recovered. You laughed a lot, felt uninhibited and free as you never had before or since.
She was so stubborn that the "Leeza" producers were forced to enlist the help of her husband, her daughter, and even the school principal to convince her to appear on the show. Thanks to their herculean efforts, they were finally able to cajole her into taking a few days off without revealing the real reasons for going. So far, so good. Less than a week later, she and her daughter boarded a flight to Hollywood, while I took a different plane out of JFK, several hundred miles away. When I arrived at the hotel in California, I was shocked to learn that they were staying in a room only one floor above me! The taping wasnt scheduled until the next morning, and while I wanted to avoid bumping into them, I didnt exactly relish the idea of being cooped up in my room and ordering room service. So I came up with a plan.
For example, in an experiment where the growth of Venus flytraps are studied, the process can be simplified by confining the variables to just a few number, the hypothesis to just one, and the data collection period to just a few days time. Thus, only the variable of types of feed is changed, only one hypothesis is made in that the one fed the crickets will grow the fastest because of the protein content, and the period is limited to just 2 weeks instead of 3 weeks. With 5th grade science fair projects, you can encourage your child to seek more answers to his questions simply because the materials and equipment used are easy to use and the processes adopted are easy to follow.
When writing for marketing purposes, the key isnt to come off sounding intelligent and powerful but to appeal to everyone reading or listening to your text. There is a popular game show on right now called, "Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader". A game show where you match your intelligence on what a common 5th grade student currently knows and is learning. Fifth grade was chosen because this is the point right before the transition from learning the "basics" to where students are introduced to a higher comprehension of information This is where you need to target your material - the 5th Grade level. While in school you were always judged at what level of reading you were at - he reads at a 4th grade level, she reads at a 5th grade level, etc. Your readers are no different, they each read at a different level and targeting a lower level of reading will guarantee that you will appeal to ALL readers.
It is said that the average newspaper is written on a 5th grade level and that the average online reader is at that or below. There is common misconception about this belief and why it is so. This doesnt mean that only 5th graders are using the Internet or that everyone reading online content is uneducated. Instead, it refers to the state of mind that the average reader is in when they are using the Internet. The Internet is now something we turn to in a hurry when we need to find info fast. Even if you are just browsing around, there is so much to see that it is easy to get distracted, caught up or swept away from one site to another and another and... so on.
Its true, "The weakest ink is more enduring than the strongest memory." I confess; today, I am thankful for that boondoggle assignment which gave me strength and a coping technique I used while waiting in the hospital. My husband had successfully battled congestive heart failure for six years until a sudden and severe infection violently attacked his already weakened heart. After the fourth time in the hospital during a three month period, he was officially put on the heart transplant only eleven days after he was admitted. While he fought for his life, I battled the silence and the waiting. I read magazines and newspapers. I listened and watched people. I prayed. With the attention span of a gnat, I decided to memorize a Bible verse which had caught my eye as a car with a personalized license plate drove by. I was not familiar with the verse, "Rom. 15:13." I counted the number of words in the verse, Romans 15:13, thirty-one words to be exact. "Not too many words; quick to write; at least it would keep my hands busy." I purchased a journal in the hospital gift shop and returned to the intensive care waiting room. I began writing the verse over and over again.
