Many argue that the ALICE response program just exposes students to things situations that will cause unnecessary stress and fear. During the training, students are taught how to handle a situation where they is an armed intruder in their school. Many parents do not want these drills in place because they “don’t want to expose their young children to such discussions of violence” (Blad). The whole idea of a intruder coming into schools and trying to harm them is very scary, especially when your school is going over in detail how to defend yourself in a situation because the training can make it seem much more likely to occur. The training makes this situation seem much more real, which causes students to be scared and worried when they come to school because they may think they will be shot.
He is able to perceive how to gain the upper hand on Brother Leon during the beginning of the chocolate war by analyzing the Brother himself and discovering what he had done in order to try and make himself look good. After securing virtual amnesty from his crimes by manipulating Leon, he uses the secret society of the Vigils in a textbook cult fashion to dominate the school and more precisely, to attempt to dominate the
The Film we watched in class Tough Guise: Crisis in Masculinity, gave me a better idea of how the world and its peoples see these young men behind the mask showing their true colors. Showing their true colors meaning that they aren’t what they seem to be, as soon as the public has brutalized their mind they often set their plan for revenge. Setting their plan for revenge could include anything from the media giving a bad image of things to the students in schools bullying other children and running these young boys life into retaliation. This movie made me feel as if young boys who aren’t raised right or aren’t socially interacted with the other children are usually the ones to become outgoing into committing bad realities. Social interaction a very big part of any
Cormier highlights this idea in chapter 31, when Emile Janza and his group of “friends” crowd around Jerry outside the school gates. They begin interrogating Jerry although he pretends to ignore their presence in a plead for them to leave him alone. This however infuriates the students leaving them unsatisfied with Jerry's behaviour, this subsequently leads them to violence, the boys launch themselves at Jerry and begin physically harassing him “A dozen fist pumps meled his body, fingernails clawed at his eye. They wanted to blind him, they wanted to kill him.” (Chp. 31 p.g 213.)
This can be linked to teens bullying someone despite their conscience telling them otherwise because all of their friends are doing it. Robbins highlights Whitney’s own experiences with being afraid to not do what her friends are doing, such as bully people. Since Asch’s study, scientists have delved deeper into the study of why this occurs, and Berns discovered a link between physiological experiences of fear and non-conformity. I notice myself experience even the physiological symptoms associated with
So the message, people tend to manipulate others when they sense that an individual is not confident within themselves or of less power. Fear is the parent of cruelty. Fear is the driving force for nearly every action in The Chocolate War. The Vigils are a feared group and Archie is the one individual who people constantly try to avoid. Jerry decides to challenge Archie’s power, therefore The Vigils power as
Father Flynn is guilty of molesting the young boys attending the school in which he is a priest at. He is a rapist or at least is very much so hinted at being one. He is believed to be a child molestor because of the evidence against him throughout the play. It was stated that the boys attending the facility were frightened to be alone with Father Flynn. The following quote exhibits the evidence in which Father Flynn is guilty of being a molester.
These days, schools are getting more violent, with fights and other types of assault. On a website called, My Security Training, it states, “Whether it’s kids fighting with each other, teenagers harassing their teachers, or professors crossing physical boundaries with their students, security guards can potentially protect schools from attacks of emotional, physical, or sexual abuse by working to prevent these acts. ”(My Security Training). The EHS security prepares for fights, When we asked a security guard how he would end a fight between students, he told us that he would separate the two students, then take them to the vice principal for their punishment. Also, security prepares for other types of conflicts involving school staff or students.
Jem, on the other hand, has a higher tolerance level and is able to resist doing anything uncalled for when someone rudely insults Atticus. This shows that Jem reacts better to the taunting and teasing better than Scout, however, Jem lost his control when Mrs. Dubose called his father rude names in front of him and his sibling. He eventually cuts up and destroys the bushes loitering in her front yard when he passes her house on his way back home. Atticus punishes the two of them and tells his children that it is not necessary to
An issue the citizens brought forward and discussed was bullying and the alleged effect bullying caused on one of my department’s students. Despite being well liked, well known, and actively participating in the robotics club that I am one of the founders, she apparently was the target of bullying, withdrew, and felt it necessary to take her life. When students feel pressured this way, it is extremely important to recognize and avoid this by making sure the students feel safe in, and part of, a close support structure. As they should, the Board struggles that the massive bureaucracy of a large system and large school makes the students and teachers feel lost.
Tracing back to the 16th century witch hunting has been around causing the lives of many innocent people destruction. Witch hunting has never died off, it is still here today. In my opinion witch hunting will always exist and occur as long as we have fear, ignorance and jealousy. Many people were accused of being a witch or committing witch activity mainly throughout the 16th and 19th century. Primarily because people fear for what they don't know or can't understand.
“The only thing we have to fear is fear itself”, this quote by Franklin D. Roosevelt depicts how dangerous fear truly is. By saying this, he understands the drastic effect fear can have. Even today, ISIS is using fear as one of their primary weapons. Fear can force people to undergo such actions that they would have never even imagined in their wildest dreams. This is a crippling feeling that none are truly immune to.
The mood of The Chocolate War is very serious and negative, especially in the scene where the author describes Jerry’s mother’s death. Cormier uses a narrator to describe Jerry’s actions and feeling during this scene to make the mood more serious. The narrator states, “Jerry’s mother had died in the spring. They had been staying up with her nights-his father and some of his uncles and aunts and Jerry himself- since her return from the hospital.
Fear is a powerful human emotion, it's built in within all humans and controls the human behaviour. It is human nature to allow fear to control people’s thoughts and behaviors, preventing them from being their true selves, as seen is “The Step Not Taken”, “A Nonsmoker with a Smoker” and Bowling for Columbine. In the essay “The Step Not Taken” Paul was followed into an office-building by a well-dressed young man carrying a briefcase. Shortly after, the young man burst into tears, Paul stepped out of the elevator very confused as to why the young man was crying.
