When you get into school as a young child, you are learning to get along with all kinds of racially diverse children. You usually find friends that are the same gender as you are because you don’t really know what kids of the opposite gender that age are capable of. You definitely want female friends if you are a girl because who else would you tell your deepest secrets to? And boys are usually friends with other boys because they are almost like brothers. In “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”, in the pilot called “The Gang Gets Racist”, the characters show that most Caucasian males are unable to treat people that are racially different and that have a different gender the same as other Caucasian males.
She begins to care about her appearance, gossip, popularity, and boys and shows that side of her to the school, but behind closed doors, some of Cady's best friends are Janice and Damian which are considered to be losers. Behind closed doors Cady also loves math, is down to earth and does not care about her appearance. Thus, this is Cady's backstage. These two examples tie into Goffman's theory of dramaturgy because in both instances what the characters let out to people is different to what they are behind
During Jane Elliott’s experiment with her 3rd grade class, one of the shocking things is how quickly and easily those normally sweet and innocent children slip into the roles of bully and bigot. On Tuesday, the blue-eyed students were told that they are better than the brown-eyed students. The blue-eyed students enjoyed privileges such as longer recess time, seconds at lunch, drinking directly from the fountain, etc. One child suggests that Elliott should keep the yardstick close by so that she can deal with unobedient brown-eyed children. Some kids call others “brown eyes” in a demeaning and hurtful way which resembles the use of the n-word against African Americans.
For example, at one point when trying to sabotage Regina, Cady takes advantage of teenagers’ need to fit in and be part of a group. Cady tricked Gretchen into thinking that she had received a candy cane gram from Regina when she actually sent it to herself. Once Gretchen thought that Regina didn’t like her she spiraled out of control because she was so worried about being kicked out of the group. Additionally, in the movie everyone seems to be star struck by Regina George, this is evident in the beginning of the movie when they interview many people of different cliques in the school and they all seem to think that Regina is some kind of goddess. Even the principal seems to know what is going on in Regina’s life as he even gives a detailed account of when and where got back together with her ex-boyfriend.
In Africa, all high school students wear uniform. The uniform color depends on the kind of school you attend. For example, all catholic schools in Liberia girls wear green and white and boys wear khaki and white. Generally, kids start school at the age of three and are promoted base on their performance in class. If a student doesn’t do well, at the end of the school year they are to repeat the class for a better comprehension.
As proof she practiced against her brother who also won the marble competition and her neighbor. In the story her neighbor Alfonso said “Man, she’s bad! She can beat the other girls for sure. I think.” When Alfonso said that to Lupe it shows that she has been practicing because in the beginning of the story Lupe said she would never be good at and sports which means she has been very working hard. What’s more Lupe did 20 push-ups on her fingertips.
What people don't realize is, that a person difference should not hinder them in anyway but be accepted and celebrated. But often time it is easier said than done. Carla was bullied at her second school by a bunch of boys because she was developing in ways that the boys thought was funny and they ridiculed her for it. “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent” (Eleanor Roosevelt) which Carla gave without trying to stop the boys teasing her by telling the teachers or her parents so that the problem could be fixed. Not only is it difficult to learn a new language but to try to adjust to a new environment as well.

But the thing didn’t stop in doing test I also have to do speech, the day I have to do my speech I wanted the earth open up and swallow me first because it had lasted 8minuted talking and second because everyone was watching me and I felt so stupid standing in front of the class talking about something that I even have no idea what I was saying that when I finish only 2 or 3 applauded and I felt ashamed, but I never blamed the other because it’s not their fault that they do not understand what I was saying I think that my classmates made fun of me, but
Case Study #2 Summary On November 29th, in this class session, there is a Japanese teacher teaching an 8th grade geometry class. I came to this conclusion because the teacher used angles and shapes, commonly used in geometry practices. Dr. Roberts explained that it is an eighth-grade classroom. There is evidence that would lead to this as well. The students seem young, but very bright.
It illustrates that it is similar to an average of students or teachers. Chris Lilly used different types of stereotypes using sarcasm, juxtaposition and hyperbole to satirize. For example, Jaime calls other girls: ‘Rich is not a Bitch’, analyze that it’s a juxtaposition of her combining different perspective together. Another quote can be: ‘There is so many fat chicks’, using hyperbole as a massive exaggeration of a bunch of fat chicks. Stereotypes are used a lot, not only for fun, but it convinces us not to behave in that stereotyping
I was not tracked in grade school, but I definitely was tracked in high school. I went to a private school for most of my grade school years, and all of my class was at the same academic level. However when I transferred to public school in 7th grade I was put in honors classes. I look at being tracked in a positive way. All my classes are challenging me, teaching me moral education, and my classmates are at my skill level and want to learn.
