Should Huck Finn be read and taught in schools? This question has been constantly debated since the book was published 132 years ago. According to the American Library Association, it was number 14 on the Top 100 Banned/Challenged Books list for over a decade. Mark Twain’s novel, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, contains language that may be considered offensive to some, but this should be overlooked because the lessons the reader learns are more important than the language it contains. By Jim’s kindness and love towards Huck, and the different characters that have impacted Huck’s life, readers can gain a deeper understanding of how racism can lead people to judge character too soon.
Weather is always going to be a problem when it comes to traveling. And at the time Christopher Columbus was in a little wooden boat and Charles Lindbergh was in a scrappy little plane. Both of these modes of could be chewed up and spit out by the Atlantic Ocean in just a second. Luckily both these men made it safely to their destination. One humorous challenge that Charles Lindbergh faced was where do I use the bathroom, his airplane chair was made of wicker with a hole cut into it and then there was a funnel below.
Along with in the text it also says “In fourth grade I embarked upon a grandiose reading program. “Give me the names of important books I would say to startled teachers.

Setting her book in a dystopian world, Lowry depicts the dark and dangerous consequence of the limitation of memory to a far more drastic extent in comparison to the world set in Pleasantville, where the potential for individuals to change and gain these vital memories is still possible. Lowry’s main character, Jonas, opens his eyes and realises the ‘flaws’ in a perfect world for the first time, when receiving the forgotten memories of humanity within the Annexe room. Despite feeling the pain ‘of a broken leg,’ to ‘feeling the coldness of snow,’ he also experiences pleasurable feelings such as going down a hill in a sleigh. However, in the end he learns to embrace all these experiences and acknowledge them as ‘being important’. In his final decision, he flees his society in ‘escaping’ and ‘returning’ the ‘memories of the past’ ‘to the people of his community’ so that they can also experience what he has.
Walking into the airplane I instantly knew I was in for a treat. Never had I been on an airplane before; nevertheless, that would explain the plane jitters even before sitting in my seat. Instantaneously I noticed the low ceilings, seeing that I hit my head on the ceiling as I was walking into the plane: but did not show the signs of anxiety setting in. “Passengers, we now are preparing for take off”, is the last thing I heard before squeezing my eyes shut, ever so tightly. As I feel the wrinkles in my forehead with my hand, I slightly open one corner of my eye, hoping we would be up in the air.
Rhetorical Analysis of “Teaching Taco Bell Canon” “New studies show that children read for leisure less as they get older, with 45% of 17-year-olds saying that they read by choice only once or twice a year” (Time). The lack of interest for reading is unfortunately true. Moreover, it is causing students to spell and pronounce words incorrectly. In this highly descriptive article, “Teaching Taco Bell Canon”, James E. Courter recounts the hilarious misspellings that students wrote in their essays. Courter’s tone, evidence, and rhetorical mode of narration supports his argument that a lack of reading may hinder a person’s ability to communicate effectively.
The short story is about an Indian named Junior Polatkin and his school career from 1st grade to graduation. He had a hard time being at school and each grade, he tells us something he has learned. Junior went to school on an Indian reservation from 1st grade to 7th grade. The government tried to keep the Indians on the reservations and wants to make them more like Americans. When Junior was in first grade the government tried to make him less like an Indian and this can be seen when he said, “My hair was too short and my U.S. Government glasses were horn rimmed, ugly, and all that” (Alexie 170).
