In Lorraine Hansberry’s “Raisin in the Sun” Act 3 Walter has seized the hero role and he displays a lot of pride. Walter is starting to understand that he has to stand up for what he believes in and not everything is about money. “And we have decided to move into our house because my father-my father-he earned it for us brick by brick”(1933). Walter turns down the Clybourne Park Association 's offer only after he remembers the roots his family has in America, and the rights that they deserve. He wants to set a strong example for his son, Travis, just like his father did for him.

Consequently, he was a beacon to young adults that wanted to lead a life of their dreams. “Carnegie is the first American hero. He is our self made hero. He starts with nothing and builds an empire” (Nasaw). Carnegie built his fortune by being committed and by looking ten moves ahead.
He then turned that passion in to this world championship, when he created a name for himself he did it with me and my brother in mind. He has put a foot in the door of the auction business and introduced it to us in hopes we could prosper even more so than he has in his field. I’ve never seen my dad do any wrong to anybody he usually tries to stay pretty mellow and keep everyone
Fathers and Sons From little Kabul to the land of the free; America, fathers are fathers. They are either going to protect, love, and accept you for who you are or they are going to be distant and unadmirable fathers. Dick Lourie writer of the poem “forgiving our fathers” and Amir from “The Kite Runner” by Khaled Hosseini both have the distant and unadmirable father. Amir and Dick both show how critical a father is needed in a Childs life, whether it be a son or a daughter. When you get older your dad is the one who shows you how to provide and protect for your own family.
The self-directed learner has every tendency to be goal oriented. The proverbial bottom line: the successful self-directed learner simply likes to learn. Identify two areas of personal strength and two areas of personal weakness in being a self-motivated and engaged student. Personal Strength; 1. Growth mind-set is a belief that they can always learn, grow, and become better at whatever they set their sights on.
The play Death of a salesman is set in late 1940s in America. This play’s main theme is ‘American Dream’ which Willy is trying hopelessly to grasp believing that if he is well liked and personally attractive he will succeed in business in American society. This le but it also has several different themes such as betrayal, abandon, reality and delusion. These themes appear every time Willy drifts back to the past throughout the play. Willy Loman, a 60-year-old salesman with two sons, lives in his dream believing that his sons would be successful like him and is certain that a good salesman has to have a well liked personality just like Willy himself.
Between the two plays, both the protagonist, Willy and Troy shows their own way of raising their son. However, Willy is more supportive with Biff’s dream while Troy become a hindrance with Cory’s dream which is to be a player. In “Death of a Salesman” Biff is his dad 's favorite. Youthful, good looking, solid, clever, and brimming with desire, Biff will surprise the world, and Willy plans to living vicariously through him. Miller shows in the play the father like Willy who believes that being “the man who makes an appearance in the business world, the man who creates personal interest, is the man who gets ahead” (21; Act 1), with Biff being the captain in their football team, his dad believes so much to his abilities that he will be a successful man and a professional football player someday.
This is a deceptively simple but critical step. To learn effectively, we must trust ourselves. We must develop a mindset conducive to being an effective learner and embrace a “degree of responsibility.” We must also develop practices that enable us to gauge the authenticity and trustworthiness of our teachers and other sources of learning. Without this foundation, the pursuit of self-directed learning is very difficult, and I suspect it is because a “climate of trust” is never established that so many efforts at self-directed learning fail or never get started in the first place.
Beyond determination, a successful self-directed learner must be one who is proactive. He develops a plan on how to achieve his/her academic goals and is a good time manager. Outstanding among these qualities is the fact that a self-directed learner is one who enjoys learning and is highly disciplined. Two areas of personal strength and two areas of personal weakness in being a self-motivated and engaged student. Two areas of personal strength I would like to talk about are curiosity and self-confidence which I believe are key elements of self-motivation.
