Beowulf went through so much to prove he was worthy enough to protect their kingdom and defeat Grendel. The story Beowulf was a great story to read and a great movie to watch; however, the battles were very eye catching and had a lot of extravagant and heroic doings of Beowulf.

Louie’s act is a step further to removing the barriers between the two races. Coach Boone then states that everyone must bond with their teammates until they have gotten to know every single one (Bruckheimer & Yakin, 2000). By doing so he is forcing the teammates to get to know each other, in order to establish a bond between them. The team also shows a willingness to cooperate when they are woken up at three-o-clock in the morning to run to the site where the Battle of Gettysburg took place. The team continually supported and motivated each other on their run.
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.

For example, when coach P ran the experiment of trying to get the teams to email each other and try to motivate one another. Some of the things that coach P found out they were saying were not a good image. People were singling out others individual actions from the team. Another reason why the Varsity crew team lose from the Junior Varsity crew team is because of the lack of motivation that existed in the team.

The run ended at a famous civil war battlefield where the coach used timely analogies with emotional impact to refocus and bring meaning to uniting the team divided by racial tensions. The coach strongly believed in his philosophy and demonstrated this when he stood up to the assistant coach’s (who happened to be the former head coach that had credibility with the white players) critical comment, “this is high school football team, not a marine team”. The initial racial issues required the coach to adapt his style to a tense environment and be forceful with the rigorous training depicted in the video. Because he led by example in the conditioning run, the Command Style brought about change faster than it would have with other styles.
Ender’s treatment of Stilson was generally right, because it leads him to be a part of the Battle School, which trains the children to be a part of the International Fleet. The International Fleet is an organization made up of all the nations whom have united in order to provide further protection and power in future wars between humans and buggers. In contrast, from our world today, the main source of conflict comes from extraterrestrial beings, instead of other countries. This causes the people in Ender’s world to develop new systems that unite all countries, advance in technology, and train the children who show an early potential to be a part of the I.F (International Fleet). If Ender had not beaten up Stilson after Stilson had repeatedly taunted him, then he wouldn’t have had gotten the opportunity to be a part of the Battle School, which would then give him the opportunity to be a part of the International Fleet and contribute to the protection of Earth and the people on it.
