However, we are concluding all these from Scott’s observations. There is no insight given in the novel when it comes to Miss Gates’ thoughts. The reason why I wanted to take a deeper look at Miss Gates, Scott’s teacher, is because there is either a deep seated denial about the false mindset she possesses, or a disconnection between what she thinks and what she speaks (which is a common thing people do to avoid controversy or to reinsure their authority). Like many hypocritical people, she likely thinks her thoughts are not at all contradicting, in fact supporting one another.
How I think Severn Suzuki used her ethos in the speech was mediocre. And her authority was not very effective to make the audience feel to trust her. To me she should have not have changed the subject frequently .But her personal connection was on spot. She made the audience have to feel like they care for the future of there family.
It’s all [she’s] left with” (Atwood 294). She is so desperate by this point because failing to stand up to her beliefs has left with no other option. She depended on her friend Moira to fix everything, but since Moira has stopped fighting, they are now both in less than ideal situations. By making her internal beliefs clear and then depicting her conforming to and participating in the society that she so strongly opposed, Atwood demonstrates Offred taking actions that contradict her beliefs because she is afraid to directly defy the society.
In fact, her inability to teach at a University is probably the main cause of her anger because she never complains about her heart problems or her artificial leg, in fact she does not hesitate to prove to people that she can function as well as anyone else; as demonstrated when she climbed up the latter ahead of the Bible salesman. However she constantly speaks philosophical statements to her mother, which suggests that she has a bruised ego, because she is unable to teach despite the fact that she earned a Ph.D. in Philosophy. These are the reasons she expresses her annoyance by making unnecessarily loud noise with her wooden leg whenever she moves around and she directs random outbursts toward her mother for no specific
Instead, Beatrice had to deal with the confusion as she was clueless about what an inconclusive test meant, especially because her results were not how she expected it to be. She lost confidence in herself and wanted an answer for her true identity. At the choosing ceremony, Beatrice decides to join Dauntless in order to gain respect from others, but most importantly, for herself, which was an aspect that she did not have when she was in Abnegation. In Dauntless, she strove to gain respect from her instructors and friends despite being mocked by one of her competitors, Peter, played by Miles Teller. The importance of knowing one’s identity in this case is to avoid confusion, and to ensure that one has a positive self-esteem so that respect can be had for oneself.
Sylvia will never admit it; she’s too stubborn. Not only does Sylvia not want to admit she learned a lesson, she doesn’t want her friends admitting it as well. As Sugar starts answering Miss Moore’s question, Sylvia “[stands] on her foot so she don’t continue” (Bambara 5). Sylvia does not want Miss Moore to believe she is right and her teachings are effective. As for Sammy, his stubbornness is shown when he quits his job.
We sit down often researching the careers so I can get a feel for what I will be doing. "Mom was it easy for you to choose a career? " I ask. I waited for a response but all she did was held her head down in silence.
Second, she rejected milk when Ajax brought it to her. Thus, motherhood was not something really matters for Sula, but remains important for the locals. Therefore, Bottom people made that a pretext to demonize
This is an example of mental state getting in the way of listening effectively. As Ms. Sullivan begins teaching Helen, progress is very slow because Helen cannot understand. This is because there is no shared meaning in the hand signals due to Helen have never been taught them before. Because the signals only have meaning to one person, communication is unable to happen. Another principle that is clearly evident is the principle of complementary communication between Ms. Sullivan and “Captain” (Helen 's father).
Shahzada’s haplessness reflects the restrictions faced by women, where wealth and high standards of living do not necessarily afford women autonomy or decision-making power Shahzada not only remains ‘voiceless’ herself but also discourages her younger daughter from challenging her father’s decision, “No, stop Ruby! I have tried to persuade him but it is no use” (The Holy Woman, p.83). Shahzada’s subordination is so strongly internalised that she fails to see how her younger daughter could ‘reason’ with the man that she has failed to persuade. Ruby too remains silent as she is made aware that her voice would not be heard. One possible reason for the silence that women either choose or are forced into is discussed by Deborah Cameron (1990) who points out how social taboos and restrictions prevent women from speaking:
She went so far as to tell Sally, “Maybe the other teachers were right about you. I tried to advise you so that you could be successful at this school. But apparently, you have your own agenda” (Kowalski, pg. 61). She went on to tell Sally that she could have been more cooperative and that she was lucky she wasn’t going to be recommended for dismissal. However, Mrs. Pelfrey threatened that she could recommend a transfer to
Since she couldn’t obtain that said interview, she couldn 't offer a strong counter argument, or offer many other solutions than the solutions she offered. Since she couldn’t create a strong counter argument she couldn’t offer many other options and it makes you think she doesn’t realize the other options available for the situation but really she’s trying to build her argument off of what she found out. The second downfall to her argument was her credibility. Cowperthwaite stated “I set out to understand this incident not as an activist, but as a mother (who had just taken her kids to SeaWorld) and as a documentary filmmaker (who can’t let sleeping dogs lie).” Cowperthwaite is by no means a whale expert
In both articles, the teacher showed no connections with students. However, Wayman didn’t give up on helping his students but Katie did walk away from her class. Through the introduction, we can see Wayman is a good teacher and patient enough with his students. He understand his students and tried to help
Now, some might argue that, Cece can’t make friends because her partial defense interferes with the way she can build relationships. They also might argue that Cece couldn’t hear them when they were trying to talk to her. They think she’s weird just by the way she looks with her hearing aid. They also might argue that Cece can turn off her hearing aids and think that it’s mean and not want her to do that to them. They argue that Cece doesn’t tell them all her secrets like el Deafo or how she can use the microphone to hear where her teacher is in the building.
