In the text it says “Gangs of ruffians sometimes broke into her lectures and threw rotten eggs at her.” This shows that even though she was harshly disrespected, she fought because she knew that whether people liked it or not, they needed women's rights. “One hundred years after her birth, Susan B. Anthony’s dream had come true.” This part of the text shows that Anthony fought for years and years and even though it was after her death, women got equal rights. Without her, it certainly would have taken way longer for these equal rights to come into place. Who knows, we may not have even have women’s
Most of the kids that weren’t athletic, joined the league. After the game became more popular, Jenna, the best athlete in the school payed Quarta a visit. Jenna confronted her and claimed that Quarta was, “Unfair and Mean.” But, Quarta shot back at Jenna. Defying the most popular girl in school took courage, but Quarta did it anyway. I believe that Quarta did these things to show her classmates that she wasn’t the weekling
There will be good and bad things about your clique and you will be forced to either go along with them or just put up with them from afar. Cliques are one of the hardest things to understand in high school, sometimes they are typical such as mean girls and jocks but sometimes, you have those rare cliques such as previously discussed. Oh, and good luck finding a genuinely nice clique who searches for the best in everyone. Here in high school, it’s eat or be eaten. “Don’t underestimate how difficult and frightening this is for girls, and give your daughter credit for getting out of bed in the morning.” Take this literally because high school is a scary place, especially for a teenage girl who is still trying to understand herself and find her place to fit
Randomly testing students for drugs in school would allow them to get help from teachers, counselors, and other adults. Many students stated that they would not be embarrassed if they were to be called down to take a random drug test. Randomly testing will help stop drug abuse in student athletes who wish to continue to participate in sports. “An experimental pilot study of student athletes involved in RSDT programs showed an associated reduction in drug use” (DuPont 841). Random drug testing will also make student athletes stop using drugs “if they’re really serious about playing” (Marciana np).
The majority of people at Carmichael Middle School knows me as the one loud girl who always yells and jumps in the hallways (oops.) School can be moderately tedious from time to time, but being hyper makes it more enjoyable! The consummation of the student body probably thinks I’m insane, but that’s okay. I love school and smiles are contagious, it’s a proven fact therefore, smile! Also, studies show that smiling even though you’re
I don’t remember my whole schedule but I do remember some of my classes I had math, biology, history, Spanish, English1, gym and some other that I can’t remember and all my classes I have to take it with them. This group of people were divided by to different nationality Puerto Ricco and Dominican republic so my first day the boys from the other country they were really nice with me until they star to give me rare looks: like I was something nasty or ugly and they start to say stupid jokes about where I’m from and I never say anything I felt humiliated and vulnerable of all this stuff had happen to me the same week I attended to the school. I decide to sit alone at the cafeteria, when five girls approached to my table and they set up a conversation
The Breakfast Club The character I chose from the movie was John Bender. The reason I chose to write about him was because everyone at his school only saw his outward appearance and actions toward school and other things. He was also judged by what he is like on the outside or by what he seemed like. When people say him as more than a criminal is in saturday detention where he met people who seemed to be all perfect. The beginning of the day on saturday people were scared of him or they didn't like him because he wasn't well behaved or in sports or smart like the others.
In the movie Mean Girls, the writers use Regina George as the tyrant character archetype to show that we as humans become attached to the thought of being superior to others because we are afraid of what others will think about us. Regina was the most “popular” girl in school, and her friends were controlled by her and did everything she said. Their clique has the entire school looking up to them because everyone wants to be them. In the beginning of the movie of Mean Girls, Regina is known as the leader of the school and all the girls want to be her. Every person in the school knows who she is, and everybody is always talking about her.
Mr. Lanham explained how Donny was very noisy and disruptive in school, was always fooling around with his friends, and never responded to a teacher. From Mr. Lanham’s suggestion, Daisy started to check Donny’s homework assignments every night. Donny’s grades then rose to average grades but, the school called again in December to explain how Donny had been cutting classes, breaking into a student’s locker, and drinking. After hearing this, Daisy and Matt arranged for Donny to visit a tutor. The tutor was able to help with Donny’s behavior, however, not his grades.
However, my friends thought I was doing too much and started calling me names like; nerd, boring, no fun life girl etc. Peers and some of my family thought I had nothing else to do with my life than to study. Moreover, my friends were not the most intelligent but they were amusing, entertaining and awesome in class. Teachers appreciated them more in class. I wanted to be like them so I tried to get a bad grade in school just to
As a result of the football fanfare, gender roles support deviant behavior within Odessa’s community. The females throughout the book play a small traditional role within the masculine community. Females that attend Permian high school dream of one day becoming a Pepette. A Pepette is a cheerleader devoted to a specific football player. Pepettes act as servants for their designated player; they bake football themed desserts, decorate signs, carry their books and even get paid for sex.
Social cliques are made up of a group of people all becoming friends. In her essay, “Queen Bee and Her Court,” Rosalind Wiseman states “cliques are sophisticated, complex, and multilayered, and every girl has a role within them.” In high school, everyone struggles to be themselves and find their place; therefore; some comply with being in a social clique and follow the path of others. Moreover, every high schooler has dealt with peer pressure within their cliques. Peer pressure is the influence from members of ones peer group. Although many people believe peer pressure is always negative, that is not the case.
What do you think of when you hear the word cheer leading? Do you think of girls in tight uniforms and ponytails running around? One might think of the popular girls in their school. This isn 't always true. Stereotypes are rather common among cheerleaders, but many of them aren 't true in even the slightest.
