There are many different ethnic groups represented in the class, such as Italian, Polish, and Moroccan. Few people were contributing to the discussion because on that certain day it was on a voluntary basis. One of them was a Moroccan woman who spoke French, but enrolled in the class to improve her grammar. The narrator paints her as annoying, know-it-all type who was taking it too seriously. “By the end of her first day, she’d raised her hand so many times, her shoulder had given out” – this is how the narrator describes her ceaseless activity (463).

Gabriella Montez’s primary stereotype is the “nerd.” The first time Gabriella is seen, she is reading a book. This is a common indication used throughout the film industry that leads viewers to make the assumption that the character in question is introverted and intelligent. When Gabriella transfers to a new school, it is made clear that she is in fact academically talented. She is referred to as a “freaky genius girl” and “an Einsteinette.” Gabriella is almost immediately recruited to be a part of the school’s prestigious Scholastic Decathlon Team. “Our Scholastic Decathlon team has its first competition next week and there is certainly a spot for you!” Another common stereotype attached to Gabriella is the “new girl.” This stereotype usually entails shyness and discombobulation.
After Margot read her poem aloud to her class, a boy had complained that her poem wasn’t hers when it really was. This supports my claim because the boy is jealous that Margot got to know what the Sun felt like on her skin or what the Sun looked like in her point of view. When the children are waiting for the rain to stop, she said something that made the children in disbelief and shock that she spoke. She had told them “It’s like a penny,” and the children protested that it wasn’t. This supports my claim because the children are so caught up in being smarter than her, that they make her feel dumb and stupid and useless.
Evidence from the text will be used to prove which conflict is used in both of the stories. In “Seventh Grade” The correct conflict in this story is internal conflict. The reason being is because Victor does not appear to have problems with anyone in his school, he appears to have problems with himself because of the bad moves he makes. For example, he pretends to speak French and says to himself that Teresa probably thinks he’s stupid afterward. There is no winner since it stops and doesn’t seem like it will be over at least until the school year is over, since there would much likely still things that Victor says to Teresa.

Before he leaves though, he "yell[s] at the top of [his] goddam voice, 'Sleep tight, ya morons ' " (68)! Although it is a shame, any reader can see that Holden seems to have nothing going right or in a positive way all because of his negative attitude. Therefore, this attitude leads him to almost care about nothing. Though Holden may seem to be a lost cause because of his negative attitude, he thankfully has an epiphany that changes his view towards the world because he realizes that people have to grow up. When Holden visits his younger sister, Phoebe, he is happy to see her, but when they begin talking their conversation turns negative.
In the story “Seventh Grade,” Victor learns trying to impress a girl with a different personality is not the smartest thing to do through his embarrassing moments. For instance, Victor lingered in the classroom to say something clever to Teresa when she walks out of the door, but instead, when Teresa exits the room, he just says something dumb and embarrasses himself. “He smiled back and said, “Yeah, that’s me.” His brown face blushed. Why hadn’t he said, “Hi, Teresa,” or “How was your summer?” or something nice?” (Soto p. 17) This shows that Victor tried to act more clever than actually he is to impress Teresa, but ends up embarrassing himself while doing so. This proves if Victor had just acted like himself, thing would have been better.
In the story, “Seventh Grade,” Victor, the main character, tries to enamor a girl named Teresa, in the process he embarrasses himself but through persistence, he ultimately succeeds. For instance, the author, Gary Soto, writes in paragraph 12 that, “Victor tried a scowl, he felt foolish until in the corner of his eye he saw a girl looking at him. Ummm, he thought, maybe it does work, He scowled with greater conviction.” As the evidence concludes, Victor is flustered, because he felt foolish. Also, he still persists with the humiliating actions, even when he is getting looked at like he was weird. In addition, in paragraph 43, the text states, “Mr.
Even though he is skeptical of people he considers phony, such as Marty who lies about seeing a movie star, his negativity and judgement of others usually goes a lot farther than what is considered normal. For example, he doesn’t get serious in relationships with others, because he always seems to find flaws in everyone. Another example is when Holden’s history teacher at Pencey, Mr. Spencer, wants to understand why he refuses to put in any effort. Spencer feels bad about failing Holden and reaches out to him, trying to connect with him and possibly influence him positively. However, Holden gets upset and starts talking poorly of him once he hears this, and later excuses himself with a lie he made up to leave, showing both his self-defence mechanism and his skepticism towards people he liked.
