In modern days, students do not usually go to boarding schools. There are private schools where students may get a “better” education, but they are not sent off to spend more time with teachers rather than their parents. The film Dead Poets Society is set in an all boy boarding school. The students are sent there to “do better”. Does boarding school really make a student better? In this film there is no true proof of that. The students are smart, well rounded, but “sheltered”. They sneak off to do things they are forbidden from. They are even set up with the person they are to be with for maybe the rest of their life. It is very old school, but the movie was set in a time that was old school. There are four main characters; Neil Perry, Todd Anderson, Charlie Dalton, and Knox Overstreet. These boys are best friends, they face everything together. I have chosen to analyze Knox Overstreet. Knox is what you could call the calm one. Most of the movie it seems that Knox has a clear head and can stay calm. He does get
In Ralph Ellison’s novel Invisible Man, he explains how powerful exile plays an important role in the narrator’s journey to finding out who he really is. According to Edward Said “Exile is… a rift forced between a human being and a native place,…its essential sadness can never be surmounted…a potent, even enriching” .The narrator’s journey to finding who he is, was alienating and enriching.
Ronald Cotton was sentenced to jail in 1995, after serving ten years for a crime he didn’t even commit. Eye witnesses are considered to be the best form of evidence in an unsolved case. Mr. Cotton was convicted primarily by an eyewitness named Jennifer Thomson-Cannino, who was sure she identified the right male. Years go by and the case was re-ruled and the jury ruled Jennifer 's description as a misidentification. The way the human brain works is marvelous, but often people alter the reality of a situation making false accusations and statements.
Have you ever been in a situation where you and a group of individuals are trying to make a difficult decision? A decision that could alter another person 's life. Well for the jurors in “Twelve Angry Men” ,by Reginald Rose, they had to do exactly that. All twelve members of the jury had to decide whether a young man would be guilty of manslaughter. All of them were forced to stay in the room until they all agreed on a decision. They were all fighting and were persuading everybody to believe what they did. After a long time of arguing and fighting they all eventually agreed in the decision of the young man being non-guilty. This summary shows that through communication and compromise the impossible decisions suddenly become ones you can make.
(The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated-Staros). Students have many rights; but, it is the right of the school to search students when there is reasonable suspicion of a threat. An example of this is the court case TLO v New Jersey. " T.L.O. was a high school student. School officials searched her purse suspecting she had cigarettes. The officials discovered cigarettes, a small amount of marijuana, and a list containing the names of students who owed T.L.O. money-"New Jersey v. T.L.O.." This case shows that students are not above putting other students and themselves in harm's way. The search of students' personal belongings is necessary when there is a reasonable threat to the schools' student body.
At the trial, Steven pleaded not guilty for the entire thing, but there were three pieces of evidence securing the conviction. The first piece of evidence, was that Lynne died before 7:45 p.m. This was crucial because Truscott was back on the school grounds at 8pm, so if Harper had died past 8pm, Truscott would have had alibi. Although this evidence was backed up by Dr. Penistan, who had performed Harper's autopsy, and stated that based on the contents of Lynne's stomach, he believed that she died before 7:45 p.m. on the night she disappeared. Even though there were two prior possibilities as to when Harper had died, that would have proven Truscott innocent, the court still accepted this because there was more evidence to consider. The second
Today was the day of Tom Robinson's trial. I prepared all my evidence and I knew I was ready for the battle. I told the Judge that there was no evidence to connect Tom to this crime. There was evidence that a crime was committed, but not that he was involved in it. Also, all the injuries were located on Mayella's left side. Tom was obviously incapable of doing this because his left arm was disabled. The only reason Tom is on trial is because we live in a world in which people assume a black man must be guilty and a black man who showed pity for a white woman must be punished. After I finished my argument, the end result was quite obvious. Tom was charged with rape of Mayella Eweld and was sentenced for death. I thought that there would be a
One student states that the Administrator was using a "choke hold" on them, while the other student states the Administrator had the other student held in a "full nelson and putting her on her face". Either method of restraint or action, could lead to serious injury to the restrained student. In addition, the male student, when questioned by guardians about the incident, indicated that the Administrator, who had been restraining the female student, began threatening him in a profane and violent manner after he was being restrained himself, by other school staff. School officials not only ignored the statements of the students, they also did not see fit to even question the students as to the events leading to their involvement. Furthermore, school officials, when questioned by guardians/caretakers of these students as to the findings of the alleged abuse by the Administrator, denied knowledge of these allegations, nor followed up with guardians after they requested an

I thoroughly enjoyed my interview with Shelly, not only because I learned some lies that Drew and Lewis had told, but also made me realize what I have learned in class already that I can apply it to. One area of crossover between this interview and what I have been learning in class over the past four weeks deals with the concept Adapt Responses to the Life Stage of the Child (Knapp, 2008). After my interview with Shelly, it made me realize that how children grow up lying is essentially how they were taught about lying when they were children. For example if you relate this back to my question 7 where I asked what is the best way to teach children about honesty. She basically said by example, but also make sure that they know
