Into The Woods The musical “Into the Woods” by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine is a metaphor for life in many ways, but the most prominent one is the woods symbolizing life itself. The prologue song “Into The Woods” is about each of the character’s dreams and wishes. Cinderella wishes to go to the festival, Little Red Riding Hood wants to deliver bread to Granny, and the Baker and his wife want to have a child, even though the witch cursed their lineage. In order to accomplish and reach for some of these goals, they must go into the “woods” and take some risks. Just as we must take risks in our personal lives to accomplish our goals, being that is the only way to achieve what we aspire to do.
Right from the start, Hester knew that Pearl was going to be different from the other kids because she was born a sin. Pearl acted differently from the normal kids, which may be because she wasn’t around other kids to see how they acted and learn from them. “The truth seems to be, however, that the mother- forest, and these wild things which it nourished, all recognized a kindred wildness in the human child” (Hawthorne 140). Pearl was connected more with the forest than she was with people. She spent more time in the forest, playing with flowers and moss, and she didn’t play with other kids because they didn’t want to be around her.
He has always wanted to join the House of Scholars and discover the world around him, “We think there are mysteries in the sky…water...plants… We loved the science of things,” Now, being assigned as a street sweeper, he is not satisfied with the job he has been given, and Equality is looking for other creative outlets to express himself. Having been part of the great WE for so long, he starts feeling the need to do his own thing. His scientific endeavors bring him joy therefore, he continues doing so. If he did not have these motivations, he would still have been like everyone else and followed society like they were supposed
To have the privilege of being able to see, you always wonder how life is to someone that can’t. Life revolves a lot in knowing what you can see, hear, taste, smell, and touch. These are some things we take for granted, sometimes you really have to sit yourself down and acknowledge how lucky you are. But in an imperfect world, some people aren’t as lucky and you have to be willing to listen and learn about what other people go through. Based on The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver, there is a character named Edna Poppy who is blind, but Taylor and Lou Ann hadn’t realize it until later in the book.

He believes ‘’Making students’ nonacademic interests of an object study is useful, the, for getting students’ attention and overcoming their boredom and alienation, but this tactic won’t in itself necessarily move them close to an rigorous treatment of those interests.’’ (Graff 400) By allowing students express their nonacademic interests in schoolwork then students will be more interested and motivated to do well in school. So no matter what you’re most interested in or have the most knowledge about, if you’re an expert on it, you’re an intellect. My nonacademic pursuit is playing the violin, which is very challenging. You have to learn many things in order to play it correctly and not sound terrible. It takes time and patience to learn
I interviewed one of my high school science teachers about her favorite song. Dr. Barr told me that her favorite song is from the bluegrass genre called “Wagon Wheel” (I had never heard this song before). She said that this song is her favorite because it is really catchy, but it does not have any special meaning for her. I asked her if she was able to remember this song’s lyrics and she could recall them partially. “Wagon Wheel” was released in the year of 2004 by a group called Old Crow Medicine Show and the instruments used during the song are banjos and guitars.
Even with her lack of fashion sense there were these white Go-Go boots she wanted and hoped for. She asked for them but her mom did not know what Kingsolver wanted; she got other boots instead. In high school she learned to sew because she thought creating her own clothes would make her more fashionable.
With Didion’s philosophy in mind, we can use writing as a tool in order to discover a meaning of a particular dance piece. Throughout the semester, reading from other writers have provided helpful hints when writing about dance as we discover that by detailed description, underlying interpretations can expose themselves. During this semester, there was a considerable amount of focus on description and interpretation that lead to a few difficulties. From previously taken dance courses, I have had experience describing dance movement through writing so that the readers could see a dance without physically viewing it. This particular course provided more insight on how much description I
