Within the novel, I.M. is proven to be emotional, naive, and has undergone traumatic events in the course of the novel. These aspects of the narrator cause his recollection to be untrustworthy; however. This only helps Ellison to convey his book’s message more clearly and effectively. I.M.’s character is a large factor compromising his reliability as a narrator; he gets swept away by his emotions or is too naive to understand his own situation.
In addition, it seeks to highlight the different identity statuses, as well as, the factors that facilitate or hinder identity formation. Furthermore, various psychological theories will be drawn upon relating to events in the movie that depict adolescent identity development. Adolescence is the period between childhood and emerging adulthood (Sigelman & Rider, 2015). According to Behm-Morawitz and Mastro (2008), this period is generally categorized by development in different spheres of life and often revolves around an increased independence and freedom. In addition, during this period adolescents start to forge a sense of identity.
According to the book “identity status” refers to the point in the identity development process that characterizes an adolescent at a given time (Marcia, 1966). Some researchers have used a procedure that makes an emphasis on the processes of exploration-trying out with diverse ideas about occupations, values, relationships…- and commitment-creating options among different choices-. A number of theorists have created two different stages: exploration in depth (“making a commitment to an identity and then exploring one’s options) and exploration in breadth (“exploring one’s options and then making a further commitment”) (e.g., Luyckx, Goossens, & Soenens, 2006). Other theorists have seen identity growth as a more “dynamic process.” All of them
Rhetorical Analysis Persuasion is the result of the combination of components driving an audience to support a position. While some techniques are effective, they can be misused, misguided, and misunderstood, generating a lack of application to society. Following the foundations of persuasion, one must develop their own credibility, use logic, and emotions. In Kobutsu Malone’s article “Narcissism and Spiritual Materialism: The New Age Legacy”, there is a noticeable lack of the rhetorical strategies, ethos, pathos, and logos, belittling the persuasive effectiveness, as well as the poor utilization of kairos and style reducing the strength of his overall argument. Within the article Malone expresses his desire for the New Age to stop materializing
Faber had said, “Having trouble?(179). Since Faber knew how to fix it, it shows his morals were high enough to help.

The next example is when Faber offered to help David Rose since he is a cripple. “Would you like me to drive you?”(262).
Today it is views as a transformation of family relationship and a way of view self. Emotional advancements allow adolescent to think about self, relationships, and social world in a more complex way. The second type of autonomy is behavioral autonomy, this is the independent decision-making and the ability to follow through. When an adolescent develops behavioral autonomy there are more likely able to be aware of risk and benefits, consider long-term consequences, seek and consider different advice, and recognize different interest.

During that era, masculinity was generally characterized as being: courageous, sharp, strong, adventurous, patriotic, morally flexible and individualistic. To represent a model English boy at that time; one has to support his country by maintaining the self-image of the supremacy of the English ego as a superpower, represent the identity of Englishness, and believe in his superiority in enlightening the rest of the world. These characteristics were very important for the benefit of the colonial society as they help imperialism to flourish and the imperial scheme to succeed. Stevenson 's protagonist 'Jim ' in particular, depicted an ideal example of a model boy in England at that time. This is due to the fact that Jim owns the qualities which make him a typical ideal boy that will benefit the imperialist scheme since they needed a courageous, adventurous, brave, responsible, sharp, manipulator, explorer and an imperial boy who would not fear representing the notion of Englishness.
The terms of it could also mean “large” or “of magnitude” depending on the way you’re looking at it. So with that being said, my opinion is Gatsby WAS a great man. Gatsby, he is the epitome of the “American ideal”. He represents the desires of his own culture the way only few can. He created a new identity for himself solely to achieve his dreams, so I guess you could say he was reinvented.
you see that these traits that define adolescence make us more adaptive, both as individuals and as species”(Dobbs). Dobbs is describing that the traits that we have as kids, help us come of age and be mature adults. When kids are young they really do not know the difference between moral and wrong, but that is what we must understand when we advance in our years of life. Overcoming the stage of adolescence in our life is a big step, and a huge part of coming-of-age. Becoming more mature than adolescence is a part of life.

Then the third assumption follows closely on new content and can be presented through learning tasks (Vella pp 2-5). In the assumption of learning theory we are making assumptions about learning from different perspectives. From an educator’s perspective, we have made assumptions about the needs and readiness of learners, and assumed that there are best teaching and learning strategies for particular learners under particular learning context. Experiments and research have been conducted to validate the findings. From a learner’s perspective, the learners have assumed that they would be able to achieve the learning goals based on certain learning strategies, that suit their particular learning styles, and under
