For session six I read Walker the story Officer Buckle and Gloria by Peggy Rathman. This story is about a police officer and his officer dog. Walker related to this story because he said he wanted to be a police officer when he grew up. Before reading the story I asked Walker what he thought was going to happen in the story. I read him the story and we talked about each page and said what we thought was going on in the pictures.
The first scientifically documented case occurred during the 1800’s in France, when hunters came across a wild child lurking around in the forest. After hearing about the encounter and capture of the feral boy, a doctor named Jean Itard became particularly interested in studying him (TLC). Upon coming face to face with the child, medical professionals came to the conclusion that he was nothing but an idiot (TLC). However, Jean’s persistent fascination with the boy led him continue his study. Using a scientific approach, he tested the boy for two qualities in order to observe whether or not he was truly “human”: the ability to feel empathy and the ability to use language.
While reading the myth of Heracles, and Theseus we can clearly identify the differences between the two myths. When comparing these two myths, it is clear that Heracles is better than Theseus because he kills monsters/serpents when he was the age of 8 months, he stayed loyal to everyone, and last he completed the 12 labours. The first reason why Heracles is better than Theseus is because he killed monsters when he was very young. As an example, he was very powerful and strong even as a child. Furthermore, when Heracles is a baby, he”sat up and immediately set out to kill his enemy’s”(Rosenberg and Baker 217).

When I was at the ripe age of three, for example, I lived in an area that was a hybrid between rural and suburban. The ever-so-popular American Garter Snakes completely engulfed our backyard. One day, a snake was entangled in the mesh fence that we used to protect our garden. When my father informed me of this, I immediately sprung to my feet to see what the coming events would entail. As he slipped on his garden gloves and delicately cut the fence to free the writhing snake, I watched closely.
In the beginning of the movie, the second oldest son, Thomas, was playing with his toy soldiers in a field. He was also caught dressing up in his dad's uniform, and looking at himself in the mirror. In this scene Tomas says that he wants to join the army and fight for his country, but he is only 15 and his dad will not allow him to until he is 17. This shows that Thomas thinks
In Emma Marris’ essay, “Handle with Care”, Marris argues the responsibility humans have in nature intervention when it comes to species near extinction. Marris explains that through human intervention many species can be saved from disappearance brought on by man-made issues. She uses the White-Bark pine throughout the article to show an example where human intervention has worked, helping strengthen her argument by giving the readers a representation of human intervention done the right way. By presenting supporting evidence, showing both sides of the argument, and playing to the reader’s emotions Marris successfully convinces her audience that human intervention to save species on the brink of extinction is a positive thing. Marris gives multiple scenarios of evidence where human
Another instance was when he asserts that the "the whirling turbines could every year kill thousands of migrating songbirds and sea ducks” which has the dual purpose of refuting Broadhurst’s point that the wind farm will not kill any bird and really persuades the reader that the wind farm is detrimental if it will cause the death of wildlife. In addition to imagery, Kennedy also employs repetition of the words us and we in order to bring a sense of alliance against the wind farm, and to include himself as well. A final point is that Kennedy utilizes powerful anaphora. For example, he asserts “I wouldn't build… Nor would I build…”, which show that he is building up his ideas and showing the audience what he believes in and criticizing his critics and presenting the extent of his knowledge of wind farms . Another example of anaphora in which a condemnatory tone is used is when “I (he) invite (invites) these critics… I (he) urge (urges) them to…”
‘That Buck learns quickly’” (11). These show that it is well prepared that they let Buck find the solution by itself. They didn’t teach him but let nature teach him instead of them. After Buck acknowledge of studying by himself, the trip later become much easier and he made progress, he even became the head dog of the sled. While in Walden, Thoreau pay himself to practice on learning from the nature, he kept learning by observing things like the snake in the freezing river and the fight between ants.
As a matter of fact, Jack Ewing, a naturalist environmentalist was influenced by Daniel Quinn with his book Ishmael: An Adventure of the Mind and Spirit in a positive way. Quinn was an inspiration for Ewing because of the discovered of the beauty of nature and how humanity is destroying piece by piece. Because the domino effect can have a positive or
