Marjan Ebrahimi Entry 2- Impressions of “ How I Learned about the Power of Writing” January 31, 2008 The purpose of “How I Learned about the Power of Writing” is for it to be used as a model for Richard Bullock’s students in the writing class he teaches. The author, Bullock, was prompted by his desire to help his students understand the importance of reading and writing. The author makes his points very clear, that his ability to read and write at such a young age helped shape him into the person he is today. The only questions that come to mind are: how was Bullock able to understand the significance of the Sheppard murder at the age of three? Why did it interest him so much? The objective of Bullock’s narrative is to explain why his grandma taught him to read at such a young age. This becomes clear at the closing of the story. His grandmother had a passion for learning, but did not have the opportunity to go to school past the eighth grade. She greatly desired her daughter to continue her education, however, she did not.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
