He makes it appear that stories are almost like living things. The author, Ray Bradbury uses personification in this paragraph to make it appear that the books can breathe, since they have pores. Montag is not only looking for books, but the genuine meaning behind each and every one of them. This reminds me of when I read the Harry Potter series. Reading all these books helped me visualize the characters, the plot, the setting, and also helped me to understand the story

I am using this approach to literature in two major projects this year. First, I received a $2,400 National Endowment for the Humanities Younger Scholars Summer Research Grant. I proposed to expand on a prior research project, looking at the use of silence in the novels of Elie Wiesel, and at the ways Wiesel both demonstrates and gets around the fact that conventional language simply breaks down when it is used to talk about the Holocaust. I plan to expand on the same project for my senior English thesis. For this thesis I am studying the ways Wiesel uses silence in the literal content of his novels and in his writing technique, and am working toward explanations as to how he gives these silences meaning.

As said in the book “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” (Lee 85-87) Ultimately Atticus has a lot of passion in his heart to deal with the people he does everyday and be able to stand up to those who don’t agree with his beliefs. A final example of how Atticus is able to show courage through others is through the Cunningham’s.

Mark Twain’s book Huckleberry Finn is about a young boy that goes on a journey to help his new friend, Jim, be free. This story has many aspects surrounding morals and how they differ between people, and how sometimes having loose morals can help you. Mark Twain shows his thoughts on morality in the world through his characters actions and words, while also portraying how twisted he sees the world. Throughout the book, Twain shows that someone who has little to no education can still have great morals. A great example of this is Huck, he went to school for a short amount of time and still has the capacity to make morally correct decisions; despite being uncivilized.

It all starts with the hardware store, but Peter tattled.
The thrill of being a Zamboni operator can only be felt by a person that has driven a Zamboni. The unorthodox nature of my job has given me the push to show people the work I do. A great philosopher named Charlie Brown once wrote, "There are 3 things in life which people always like to stare at: a crackling fire, a flowing stream, and a Zamboni clearing ice." Zamboni is a sort of ice resurfacing machine that was discovered by Frank Zamboni in the year 1949. The Zamboni can run at a top speed of 9 miles per hour.
AP English and Dual Enrollment Government have prepared me the most for college. My AP English teacher opened my eyes to different types of literature and sources that is constantly referenced in my first college classes at Tidewater Community College. for example, Karl Marx is quoted a lot in the many theories of sociology. My Dual Enrollment Government course prepared me for this ample amount of reading in college. My professor would provide my class with multiple reading assignments to push our reading limits.
