Transcript of Schema Badge

My Book Text to Text There are many aspects in this book that I found that I could relate to myself. This is the main example I want to mention:

Eddie is emotionally scarred from his parents as am I with my Dad.
“All parents damage their children. It cannot be helped. Youth, like pristine glass, absorbs the prints of its handlers. Some parents smudge, others crack, a few shatter childhoods completely into jagged little pieces, beyond repair.”
I feel that many people can probably relate to this, but I know that I personally can. Text to Self Text to World Analyzing my schema through this metacognative process was helpful to connect my existing knowledge, with my incoming knowledge. It helped me realize that I already knew what kind of things to expect when reading this book, because I had already read one of Mitch Alboom's books before. I also realized that I find myself relating to the main character often. This technique is something that I will use in the future to help me connect the small things so I can get a better grasp on the big picture. Importance of Schema April Drips Schema Badge Mitch Albom is also the author of the book Tuesdays with Morrie. I have read this before so I knew the authors writing type and what kind of book this text was going to be. Tuesdays with Morrie was about a man named Mitch Albom, who got caught up in a fast paced life style and forgot about his mentor from college named Morrie. Albom reconnects with Morrie after 16 years of no communication after he finds out his mentor is on his deathbed. They soon have regular visits, and in these visits, Albom learns important life lessons. Since I read Tuesdays with Morrie first, I figured that The Five People You Meet in Heaven, would also be a deeper book involving life lessons. While I was reading the book, I could see direct similarities between the two books. “Be compassionate ... and take responsibility for each other. If we only learned those lessons, this world would be a better place.”
― Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

“Each affects the other, and the other affects the next, and the world is full of stories, but the stories are all one.”
― Mitch Albom, The Five People You Meet in Heaven Examples “Sometimes when you sacrifice something precious, you're not really losing it. You're just passing it on to someone else.”
― Mitch Albom, The Five People You Meet in Heaven

“As you grow, you learn more. If you stayed as ignorant as you were at twenty-two, you'd always be twenty-two. Aging is not just decay, you know. It's growth. It's more than the negative that you're going to die, it's the positive that you understand you're going to die, and that you live a better life because of it.”
― Mitch Albom, Tuesdays with Morrie

Both books are filled with inspirational life lessons. They both make me want to become a better person, and live my life more fully. I relate this book to the fact that everyone dies, and everyone has their own view of the afterlife. With his book, Mitch Albom described one possible idea of heaven. In his dedication he states,
"Everyone has an idea of heaven, as do most religions, and they should all be respected. The version represented here is only a guess, a wish, in some ways, that my uncle, and others like him - people who felt unimportant here on earth - realize, finally, how much they mattered and how they were loved."
In his books, he emphasizes that we are all connected somehow, and we are all important. Examples The Five People you Meet in Heaven This book is about a man named Eddie who was a maintenance man at a amusement park. The book starts with his death by attempting to save a little girl from a freak accident, and follows his path into heaven. In heaven he meets five people who are waiting for him. With each person he meets, he relives part of his life and learns more about himself and his past. With each person, he also gains an important life lesson.
