David Brooks successfully persuades his audience through his presentation of his claim, his persuasive writing style, and his usage of emotional appeals. The Other Education written by David Brooks identifies how society lacks the studies of non-scholastic curriculum. Yet, he defines curriculum as a broad term in this article. When thinking about scholastic aspects people ponder the thought of school subjects, however Brooks wishes that society would look past the direct studies.

Elona Kalaja Professor Eleni Saltourides ENG 101 Critical Analysis Paper February 21, 2018 Flunking vs Students In the article, “In Praise of the F Word” Mary Sherry argues that flunking students is a method that has been effective in the past and is still effective todays day, and anyone needs to see is as a positive teaching tool.

Several members of the community shared their personal experiences with their children’s overwhelming feelings of the pressure to succeed.

Parents have been entrusted with the incredible privilege and responsibility of shaping their children 's behavior in a positive direction (Alto, 2006). Unfortunately, many enter this world with desires that are harmful, cruel and selfish to others and to their own selves even. Spanking by a parent to his or her child is still seen by many as a necessary form of discipline, and condoned, or sadly even encouraged and this trend needs to be stopped. Spanking, then, can be one effective discipline option among several in a parents ' options as they seek to divert their children away from negative behaviors and guide them toward becoming responsible, healthy, good and happy adults in the coming future. Almost all of the respondents in the survey assessed experienced spanking.
A balance between a enriching intellectual environment and comfortable living conditions is what all families, especially parents want. This is a constant struggle in the Glass Castle because of the Walls poor living condition, but eagerness to explore and adventure the world. Rex and Rosemary Walls, parents of Lori, Jeannette, Brian, and Maureen, obviously take an exploratory and learning environment over a comforting living space. Although living in rough conditions, which leads to bullying, poverty, I believe that it was more important that the Walls created circumstances for most of the children to explore and enjoy learning.

I was the strange child, I still am the strange child in the class. I wasn’t afraid to tell people what my opinion was about them or their ideas. I wasn’t afraid to find common interests with new friends and share my experience stories with them. More importantly, to me at least, I wasn’t afraid to talk about: my depression, my anxiety or even my bipolar and the feelings of ups and downs that those ‘illnesses’ had put the emotions and mental state I have through. “Everything changes when you arrive at HIgh School,” and, “it’ll be the best years of your life,” I’ve even heard, “you’re going to miss being in school.” I will tell you that while I will miss the three friends I have here in High School, I’m never going to miss the resentment and self hatred that followed my soul all through the first semester of Freshman year that I’m still working through.
Trevor McKinney seeks to engage the world in his seventh grade social studies class by implementing this idea. While his idea is, in and of itself, not a novel idea, his personal attempts to implement it most certainly disrupt the established way of doing things, and alongside the life and reality of the people in the story, create a mirage of incidents and implications for not only the characters within the story but also for review from a school counseling perspective.

Trevor is trying to solve the problems of his alcoholic mother and create the family he has always wanted. Arlene, Trevor’s mother, hits rock bottom, when she hits him, and this prompts her
