However, in the third paragraph, we find that is not the truth that banned books can be good for people to read as well. Now think about how many books are being prosecuted needlessly, how many of the bad ones are being forced into teens hands. Do we let the classics live or die because of the offensive language? If there is a good lesson to be taught should we get rid of it because of a couple words some people don't
Jades character gets interpelated into society in a number of ways. The first time it happens is in the beginning when she runs into her dad at the mall and awkwardly must tell him that she got her period which leads to him buying a million different feminine hygiene products and leaving Jade embarrassed. When Jade tells the story to her friend Cori she responds “You…you had to go to the drugstore with your Dad?” More laughing. “That’s… the funniest thing…ever.”(page 70) It’s meant to be a joke because girls aren’t supposed to get their dads to buy feminine products they are supposed to ask their moms, guys in general in our society aren’t the ones who are “supposed” to be buying tampons. For example in the short story The Heroic Quest of Douglas Mcgawain, Douglas and his friend Rick are going out to get for soda for their girlfriends when Douglas’es girlfriend Tracy asks him to buy her tampons.
When you writing a book that is very controversial that it is meant for young adults and children of course you going to be in the middle/center of everything. You cannot make public libraries, school districts, and even parents change this mind about a book that they don’t want their children to read. I know I might have repeat myself about parents letting their children read what they think their children to read because some parents don’t want them to be expose to something that they are going to be too unsuitable. At the end, Blume understands what the parents and teachers are trying to say when she gave one of her friend’s daughter a book that title “The Stupid Book” by James Marshall, and the mother was like no I don’t want my kid to say words that are bad for their vocabulary
Is today’s youth truly benefiting from school curriculums banning books? For many parents there kids innocence is more than often a top priority, but due to the growing public more and more are being exposed to explicit content. Through ideas such as the internet and other media, it has become increasingly easy to obtain this content. However, this does not mean that being able to obtain this content should be available everywhere. Although the novel In Cold Blood written by Truman Capote accurately portrays present day investigations on murder, it should be banned from school curriculums for young teens because of its explicit content.
Sarah Altman Mr. August Honors English 12 27 May 2016 Song Analysis Many people would agree that the song “Concrete Angel’ by Martina McBride is about a child that got abused by her mother. Many could argue the meaning of the song goes a lot deeper than that. The song could have the meaning that society disregards the bad events going on around them and doesn’t speak up about any of it. For example she says “The teacher wonders but she doesn’t ask” and “The neighbors hear but they turn out the lights”. If society wasn’t this way then maybe this little girl in the song would have been saved.
She knows the trouble she will get in with her teacher Miss Crocker and Mama when she stands up for Little Man. Cassie says on page 27 “Miz Crocker,” I said, I don’t want my book neither.” She says this because in the front cover of their books it has a chart that shows who has owned it and the condition it is in. It says nigra, very poor condition, and that is why Little Man doesn’t want his because he thinks it is not fair that they get the old worn out ones, and the white students get the brand new ones. This is why Cassie understands that Little Man doesn’t want his book, and how she stands up for him. She shows courage by this
However, she doesn’t do a great job of using logos as she links the outside information she provides with her own beliefs. Ridenour suggests that counselors advise people to write a journal in order to get through tough times in life. She continues on with this idea by forming a connection between a private journal and Twitter and expressing her thoughts on how Twitter can serve the same purpose as the journal many counselors talk about. This argument is unreasonable as there could be more than one outcome of journaling on Twitter since the information being shared no longer remains private property. Private journaling does serve as a healing process for many and the main reason is that a person is able to express his/her feelings without the fear of being exposed out in the open and this beauty of journaling is killed by
Two important stages that characters go through to become a literary hero include their call to action: something that stirs up their daily life, and their refusal of the call to adventure, whether it be mentally or physically. Standing on the patio of his restaurant, he watched the second bomb go off and “[he] looked over [when] all the sudden somebody’s leg landed next to [him]” and that’s when he knew it was far worse than he thought (Chris Galligan). The bombs shook his world pretty hard, and confused him; just as the call to adventure does for most traditional heros. Chris regarded the next few hours of his life as if it was like being in a movie, almost surreal and as if it really hadn’t happened. Here, Chris refuses his call to action, though unconsciously.

Fahrenheit 451 had many different pairs of characters that had many different thoughts about certain things in life. Mildred, Montag 's wife, was very negative and only cared about herself, but Clarisse cared about other people than herself and had a positive view on the outside world.

Faber and the Lost Gang both wanted to make people think that books are good again, but had two different ways of doing that..

Their peers teach and give bad advices to them. Some peers give pressure or influence other teenagers ,for instance, to drink and go to parties and do things that are not proper. It’s really similar to the “Speak” book and what Laurie Halse Anderson wants us to understand from her written book and how peer pressure affects teenagers. By reading this book, we can be more careful all the time and do not listen to peer. Peers had several ways that they pressure or influence Melinda Sordino’s life; they were talking to her all time and give her bad advice (Halse).
In the story ‘’So I Ain’t No Good Girl” written by Sharon Flake a good realistic scene is set by the author that connects me when the situation is put into all of the characters actions. In my opinion I feel like the story isn’t enough because the author didn’t give enough information to the characters feelings and thoughts on how they felt or what they like to do and what they want to do. As Raheem starts staring at the good girls his girlfriend gets mad and that’s when the conflict starts. The scene is very realistic because in the story it says. “She was walking to the bus stop when she suddenly tripped over her own two feet.” They are by a bus stop, and a donut shop were the story mostly took place.
