Before considering leaderships between different leaders in Band of Brothers, it’s important to note that everybody has a different way of leading and is a good leader on their own. The three people that have shown the greatest leadership in the series, “Bands of Brothers,” are Lieutenant Winters, Lieutenant Speirs, and Sergeant Lipton. Some traits that they all have in common is that they are great leaders and are willing to sacrifice themselves to save others. Additionally, their braveness helped the struggling soldiers fight through the battle field. If the three brave soldiers were to be ranked based on their leadership, Lt. Winters would be ranked first, Sgt. Lipton would be second, and Lt. Speirs would be ranked third for best leadership abilities.

The critical school I chose to write my analysis about is Marxist. When reading, “The Who Grinch Stole Christmas” the main principals showing are social and economic equality. In this story, The Grinch would represent the lower class that cannot afford to celebrate and The Who’s represent the higher class who can afford to celebrate Christmas, with presents and food. "They'd rush for their toys!” "young and old, would sit down to a feast" (Geisel, 1957). When the Grinch decides to take away all of The Who’s presents, he is essentially removing what this society revolves around and what he hates about Christmas – material goods. This entire story shows the main principals of Marxism. From the Marxist point of view, there would be the automatic
I attended the attraction Borealis a Holiday Cirque at Mystic Lake Casino, late November with my family. Borealis was conceived and directed by Fernando Quevedo of Q productions in Las Vegas. The all-new show follows the story of one person’s search for the perfect gift.

The hologram system the productions used is second to non, the music was all original and epic in scale, and the performers are at the top of their league.

This quote shows how Cole changed because it explained how he was trying to help Peter and to get him to change like Cole did.

According to Victor and Edith Turner, a liminoid pilgrimage is a “[rite] of transition marked by three phases: separation, limen or margin, and aggregation” (p. 2). In Stephen Sondheim's Into The Woods, all of the characters go to the woods and take part in those same three phases outlined by the Turners. They learn lessons on their journey and come out as changed people that barely resemble the characters in the traditional stories. In this way, Into The Woods is the musical liminoid pilgrimage of classic storybook characters.
Navigating our social surroundings and social interactions correctly can help develop character, discernment, and independence. The social growth of two protagonists was displayed in both Beasts of No Nation by Uzodinma Iweala and Boys Without Names by Kashmira Sheth. Agu, who was introduced in the novel Beasts of No Nation as an innocent, young boy, eventually turned into a ‘beast’ because of several influential factors. Like Agu, the protagonist in Boys Without Names by Kashmira Sheth, Gopal, underwent a similar transformation as the plot progressed. Gopal’s change, however, affected his perception on others and the amount of trust he allows for others.
