“Look at Europe,they’ve had one war after another for hundreds of years and show me where anything got better for them” (Collier and Collier 28). The authors James Collier and Christopher Collier of My Brother Sam Is Dead both prove they are not against war, but at the same time, they prove war is okay in the story. They use their feelings about if war should be okay or not okay through Tim’s father. Sam,one of the characters and sibling of Tim, argue that that they should be fighting for freedom and his father argues that war is not worth it. Even though both sides are presented in the story, Collier and Collier conclusively claim in My Brother Sam Is Dead that war is brutal and pointless.
Eleni Clermont H English I 9/30/17 Review and Assess Questions I do not blame the narrator for Doodle’s death. I believe the narrator was just trying to help Doodle into becoming a person that wouldn’t be made fun of when he started school. He truly believed that Doodle would come over the hill, through the rain, back to the narrator, but when Doodle didn’t come up the narrator went looking and discovered his body. 4. (a)
Ender’s Game, the battle school manipulates Ender by involving his family. The battle school involves Ender’s family by granting Valentine permission to speak with Ender. The school's intent was to put Ender back on the right path so he finishes his schooling and fights the buggers. By doing this, it makes Ender rekindle his love for his sister, this allows him to come to the realization that everyone on Earth has a family or someone they love. This realization then pushes him to do well in school and strive to save mankind.
Without the bugger war, Ender would not have been born, and he realizes this fact. Interestingly enough, the reader never directly see’s the war against the buggers. The only war ever seen directly is the other war that Ender fights every day – the war against the teachers games, against the other kids, against his fear of becoming his brother, against the instinct that drives Ender to hurt other people. Ender’s entire life is made up of these little battles. Ender finds his identity in the battles that he fights and the challenges that he over comes.
In “The Day the Cisco Kid Shot John Wayne” by Nash Candelaria, it portrays examples on how hegemony is being used in this story. In the beginning of the story, we see that Junior’s father wants to move into town so that Junior can get better schooling and learn more English since “He’ll have to live in the English-speaking world.” (Candelaria 8). We see hegemony here because English is used throughout the whole country and knowing this language can mean intelligence and educated. Those who spoke another language other than English, was to be seen as not educated and not accepted by others.

They were preparing it, if you see what I mean, for the future. Everything has to evolve or else it perishes… Skiing had to learn to move just as fast or it would have been wiped out by this war… You know what? I 'm almost glad this war came along.

Ender’s Game Being a regular high school student, I shocked myself because the fact that I actually decided to read a book at home from class without being forced to should be breaking news on CNN. Ender Wiggin was an intelligent child specifically selected into the IF with the possibility of being the new commander of the third invasion of the buggers. Ender was on a different path as the other students, the adults of the school wanted a lot out of Ender, which brought tons of emotion out of Ender from the adults, Bonzo, Valentine, and especially Peter. The book was better than the movie even though the movie could show emotion through a screen I still think it was quite bland and there was more emotion and hardship represented in the book than the movie.
