A friend of mine brought up Speech-Language Pathology one day, a term I was unfamiliar with. I researched the strange word “pathology” and was surprised that I found the profession interesting.

Analysis of the Literary Works of Alice Walker’s “Everyday Use” Based on the options given to me to choose a topic for my final projects, I went over many stories that we have learned in class on what kind of works to focus on. Then I finally decided to write about Alice Walker’s “Everyday Use”. The story is about black cultures, beliefs andheritages which it has characters that have wrong attitudes of preserving and dealing with their culture and handling of other issues. Hence, I will try to analyze this story based on some of the elements of Fictions we have learned in class: theme, narration (points of view, character, and technique. To begin with, let’s see the themes of the story, which is the most important element of a story which authors try to convey the message of their writings to readers:
After reading “The View From the Bottom Rail,” explore the CD-ROM on that chapter. Write one or two paragraphs about any insight, discoveries, or items of interest in relation to the topic of slavery. In addition, write another paragraph about the methodological challenges of doing interviews and the things one must keep in mind when reading history that includes interviews. Provide feedback to at least two classmates’ responses. I found it interesting that analogy that there are a top and bottom rails of society.
Recently our class got a chance for an exclusive interview with our writing teacher, Mr. Ezzard. In the interview we asked a series of important questions, mostly geared towards his past experiences and life choices. We were able to get a better understanding of him with the answers we received. We began the interview with a monumental question. We asked "When did you meet your wife and how?"
An instance in where I ultilizied this agreement was during our world café discussion board. After we had time to interact and talk with our classmates during class we wrote on the discussion board our thoughts, and expirences during our in class discussions. While writing this discussion I remained honest, and said what I felt during my expirence in the world café discussions I had, had with my groups. I spoke my truth about my feelings toward some of the subjects, which were very hard to speak upon and I also talked about new aspects I learned from my classmates. It was hard not to say what everyone wanted to hear, but instead state my honest opinion and feelings.
To discuss some of these parts of his writing, I had the writing sample on hand during the interview, to reference back to it. I interviewed Jorian outside the library, quite informally, during 8th period, the end of the day, while his teacher read the class Night John by Gary Paulsen. When we separated from the class he felt a

Stephanie Young and Amie McKibban were new to the faculty at the University of Southern Indiana (USI) in 2009. They mutually decided that there was a need for “Safe Zone” trainings at the University. The paper they published is distinctly written to explore the tensions that both authors experienced in establishing a Safe Zone training program at USI. The authors use qualitative methods of recording their experiences and how they relate to one another, and the wider social implications their experiences were based around. The bulk of the paper is spent discussing how they collaborate, sometimes with more success and other times with less.
Jerrione Mosley In the book Between the World and Me, Ta-Nehisi Coates writes a letter to his son revealing the reality of life, growing up as a black man. Coates mostly focused on how black lives and bodies lacked value in America and could be possibly destroyed or taken away at any time. He also talked about “The Dream”, which is the ideal that every US citizen should have an equal opportunity to achieve success and prosperity through hard work, determination, and initiative. The lack of values and importance for the black race is highly in effect.
Rhetorical Analysis Author Ta-Nehisi Coates in his book Between the World and Me discusses impactful racial issues in American history and educates his son on the past and current realities of being a black American. At the beginning of the book, Coates imposes the question: “How do I live freely in this black body?” (Coates 12).
People are influenced by the ones around them; these people can have positive or negative influences. Mentors are role models for you look up to and learn from. The only way for mentors to have a positive influence is if they are heard. Listening is the key. In the novel To Kill A Mockingbird, Harper Lee creates mentors for Scout to show listening to the advice of those before you can lead to strong morals and an understanding of others.
I can’t think of many advantages to society by having PMDD become a treatable, mental illness. The only thing I could possibly relate this to is that it could be an advantage to the workers in society because they don’t have to deal with the complaints of women when they are labeled with PMDD and get the medication for it. The Final Period article talks about how in the past, “When Rosie the Riveter was needed in American factories and recruits in the Women’s Army Corps, the War Department produced films telling women of the abundance of scientific evidence proving periods are no big deal” which is saying that they were able to get over it, it seems like now women are letting in take over and at work they are taking more sicks days. If they
