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.

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.

However, once Rahm was in the plane, his actions demanded her attention.
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.

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).
It has taught me various skills within enculturation, facial feedback, empathetic listening, primary emotion, tolerance for ambiguity, distracted listening and perception. Enculturation has taught me to know my values and beliefs. It has made it clear to me about my culture and what I do and do not believe in within my generation. Also, within other cultures, it has made me curious to learn the similarities and differences they have from me. I have felt more connected within my family and the society from researching and studying enculturation.
Another example was when Superman’s brakes failed on landing when they were coming back. “By the time Phil got the plane stopped, the bomber was three feet short of the runway’s end” (81). Showing us yet again where your mental state of mind is heavily assaulted and where luck is a very important asset for survival.

With this quote, Alexie wants the readers to understand that reality is tied to the audience. The audience can make a true story seems false and vice versa. O’Brien says “Sanders made a little sound in his throat, like a sight, as if to say he didn’t care about if I believe it or not. But he did care” (560). This quote from O’Brien’s text explains Alexie’s idea that the truth depends on the audience.
News is how we learn about what is happening around us. In our communities, in our country, and throughout the world. We rely on newspapers, radio, television, and online sources to give us the facts about the news. We expect to be informed of situations, and not swayed by the bias of those reporting this information. In a perfect world, we would be given the facts at face value, but unfortunately, the news we are given are heavily stained with biases and other manipulative techniques to sway our view point.

Especially when Ender starts off and goes to the school he is 12. I know it is hard to find a 6 year old actor, but they could’ve tried to make it so that he looked younger than he was so that it wasn’t obvious. They also could’ve made it so that when Ender thinks that he is playing a strategy game he is actually conducting an army without him knowing. They could’ve made it so that when he figures that out that this wasn’t a game the leaders of the school tranquilized him and I didn’t think it was relevant at all that they did that. It also didn’t happen in the book so I don’t see a reason for it.
