At the end of practice I was exhausted from all of the running up and down
His goal is him telling students how important their education is. The authors tell them they would understand it more due to him giving his personal life habits, of working hard and getting underpaid because maybe lack of experience or not having a certain degree. Mr. Andrew Braaksma is claiming in the article “Some Lessons from the Assembly Line”, "I have worked as a temp in the factories surrounding my hometown every summer since I graduated from high school, but making the transition between school and full-time blue-collar work during the break never gets any easier. "(Braaksma 2005) He states in the reading, that it isn 't easy being a full worker then going to college. "but making the transition between school and full-time blue-collar work during the break never gets any easier.
He pointed out Mr. Cathey consistent bombardments of challenges and how he handle each situation. Every good point in his life such as becoming a father was met with a bad point in which he couldn’t go to school because he became a father. The author allowed us to feel happy for the situations that seemed any reasonable person would feel good about and upset about the unforeseen variables that tend to find Mr. Cathey. The author makes sure you feel the joy and pain of a young man who could have made it to a higher level but came up short because of his bad decision
Second, the Council of Vocations assigns Students the occupation that they will carry out for the remainder of their lives because the Council: “knows in its great wisdom where you are needed by your brother men, better than you can know it in your unworthy little minds” (22). “If the Council said "Carpenter" or "Cook," the Students so assigned go to work and do not study any further. But if the Council has said "Leader," then those students go into the Home of the Leaders… And there they study for many years, so that they may become candidates and be elected to the City Council and the State Council and the World Council” (25). Since this select power allows the government alone to determine the profession of the Students, it grants them the ability to designate leaders and workers from the idea that those chosen would insist on preserving their current way of life. This power, combined with the ability to control every aspect of daily life, suppresses rebellion, in most cases, before it
You can hear their stories of weekend hunts, fishing trips, and their hard days of work. By using these words he paints a clear picture of these BCGs and everyone can imagine the men they have met that are this way. Olsen uses words that tell and show how young boys who grew up to be BCGs acted in school. He tells us, “BCGs fidgeted our way out of the classroom and into jobs where, it seemed, the only limit to our income was the limit of our physical strength and energy” (Olsen 1). Young boys fidgeting in the classroom that grow up to be these hard working men may have trails and be looked down on by teachers in school because they learn and think differently than others.

Zinsser starts off the article by giving the reader examples of notes, which students would leave for their Dean. One of many from a random student was, “I desperately need a dean’s excuse for my chem midterm which will begin in 1 hour” (Zinsser 1). Right after he gives the reader a couple examples, which shows emphasis on his topic, and then went on to explain what they were. He states that the notes were of, “men and women who belong to Branford College…and the messages are just a few of the hundreds that they left their dean, Carlos Hortas- - often slipped under his door at 4 a.m. - - last year” (Zinsser 1). As you can see, Zinsser went straight into his article about the pressures faced by undergraduates.
For example, Brother was told that even though Doodle can live, he might not be “all there”, so every day he would go and watch his brother to find out if he is “all there”.

But what if they’re smarter than you? What if you have nothing on them? Gavin had the pleasure of being in all my classes. Every A he received that I didn’t was followed by condescending, intellectual degradation, as well as a pommeling during recess. And the jumping wasn’t like the movies either, with a crowd cheering as the underdog got knocked-out.

Weisler continuously asked the man the events that took place on the day that the flee happened, the Stasi also kept him awake for many hours as this took place. The scene shifts to a classroom setting as Weisler is some sort of professor at a university that teaches the youth of East Germany how to become part of the Stasi. Weisler is criticized by one of the students there on the cruelty of his methods, Weisler explains that he does what he does in an interrogation in order to find innocence. Weisler says an innocent man who is asked the same question over and over will become enraged and shout while a guilty man will stay calm and become quieter as they have something they are hiding. Another way he can tell innocence is as he is interrogating his suspects if their alibi stays the same word for word throughout the entire process compared to an innocent man where his alibi will remain the same in different variations that he tells police, as Weisler says "truth can be replicated in other
