Learning the language and having difficulty speaking english, having trouble communicating. In The latin Deli: An Ars Poetica it identifies the issue of speaking a different language. The poem states "all wanting comfort of spoken spanish." Securing work is another issue either because of illegal immigration, the job only hiring people with experience in the united states or because of the language barrier. Cultural barriers as americans we are more open to do different things but when being from different cultures it might be considered disrespectful.
This proves that Bob Ewell wasn’t telling the truth because Tom doesn’t have a working left arm while Bob does. Also, about one out of ten people are left-handed and back in the day, being left-handed was very unpopular and adults would try to train children to be right-handed. Examples of Bob’s lies in court are
Carson was a black kid living in a very racist time period. When he went to Wilson Junior High he was subject to lots of racism from teachers and students alike. Black kids were stereotypically seen as dumb and unable to succeed, while white kids were seen as superior. “Then, to my embarrassment, she bawled out the White kids because they had allowed me to be number one [in my class]. “You’re not trying hard enough,” she told them.
Marquez’s characterization of the creature makes the reader sympathize with him because the locals do not know how to care for him. Since the creature is so diverse, the community treats him like “…a science experiment, a holy figure, and a freak show.” (p. 150) Likewise, when I was a child, I was illiterate until the third grade. Being a late bloomer in life can affect a child’s self-esteem because I was reading the first-grade book in a fifth-grade class and automatically was subjected to bullying and isolation like the creature in “The Old Man with Enormous Wings”. For example, When Pelayo and Elisenda discovered the creature, they tried to rid of him on a raft, but the creature had been discovered in the chicken coop, and the villagers were tossing food for him to eat “…as if he weren’t a supernatural creature but a circus animal.” (p.150) Objectively, the experience I encountered as a child allows me to perceive this story with deeper understanding and created sympathy for others that considered “freak shows” in
Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, why this book written by Mark Twain should be on the banned books list in schools and why it is too mature for it’s students. This book is full of situations that honesty students are not able to handle, leaving inappropriate impressions about racism and how to treat people and is going to cause teenagers and young adults to repeat the language and personalities seen in this, to other groups of this century that are fitting now The problem with Adventures of Huckleberry Finn isn’t that it is a bad book, not that maybe it is poorly written or isn’t a learning experience. The fact of the matter is that students do not hold the attention span or mental capacity to be forced to deal with this. While some may use to excuse that high school students may have enough knowledge over these situations, or if explained, people would enjoy the moral of the story more, that is not always the case. Students in high school already are expected so much of.
Negroes do not like it in any book or play whatsoever, be the book or play ever so sympathetic in its treatment of the basic problems of the race.” If true, how is Huckleberry Finn an exception? There are many accounts and complaints of white students acquiring foul racist behavior within Huckleberry Finn. One is the case of students racially abusing an African American child’s father after they have learned the novel. “...his father says, was verbally and physically abused by his white classmates after they have all read Huckleberry Finn in class.” - Nat Hentoff, Village Voice. To make the situation worse, these cases happen more than often.
"Grades and Self-Esteem" Reading Journal In the essay written by Randy Moore, “Grades and Self-Esteem " talks about the American education system and unprepared students. Furthermore, in the essay, the writer mentioned that grades of students are low because, they lack of the knowledge and many cannot pass seventh grade exams. Moreover, certain students do not want to learn or think, and also, he said that some students lack of the critical thinking. The author believe that critical thinking is something that can be learned by time not something that can be stuffed normally. Furthermore, He thinks that what lead students to be in this situation is that they do not care about anything, but they care if they feel good or not about themselves.
I’ve met elders who can speak both English and Navajo. Their English language may not be as fluent but it is easy to understand because I grew up listening to the it. Tan explains ow people mistreated her mother because of her poor language she states “people in department stores, at banks, and at restaurants did not take her seriously, did not give her good service, pretended not to understand her, or even acted as if they did not hear her” (Tan, 78). I for myself have seen this happen to my grandmother and a majority of people because they only spoke Navajo. They disrespected them only because they did not understand them.
Autistic teens will often get discouraged in school, because the abnormality of their behavior which leads others to believe that they are incapable of learning--if this has not convinced the person themselves. One autistic teen has spoken out about this very behavior at school, “ I thought I was stupid, because I was always getting bad grades, doing dumb stuff, or freaking out in a panic attack”(Understanding Our Gifted and Complex). The person goes on about the details of his school life, even stating that regardless of his high IQ score and his exceptional reading skills that surpassed his upperclassman, his class--including himself--thought of him as a fool. Although this teen is lucky enough to have his family's support during this ordeal
Reading Amy Tan 's "Mother Tongue", I came across the idea of language being "fractured and broken". In the essay, she provided examples of how her mother 's limited English caused her to be given poor service by staff at department stores, banks, and restaurants; she stated how they would consider her mother’s lack of depth in her thinking was caused by the "broken" or "limited" use of the English language. Conversely, she thinks that her mother 's English is "vivid, full of observation and imagery". We have given that language many names: non-native tongue, broken English…but I think Chinglish is what gives it the most character. Indeed, Chinglish is what creates meaning for the speaker and highlights the emotional aspects of the native tongue, despite it being the literal translation of a Chinese phrase (which makes it grammatically incorrect with funny pronunciation and deemed as a form of "broken English").
Antonio was intimidated by English at school because he came from a Spanish speaking family. Spanish was all that he knew and to him that was normal but to the other kids and teachers at school it was weird and abnormal. There are many examples of dichotomy in the book. For example the vaquero’s and the farmers had different lifestyles and there was constant fighting. With Antonio’s dad being a vaquero and his mom being a farmer, he grew up listening to the constant bickering about who was better and how they should raise their kids.
