The author developed the plot by saying, “Then all three burst into laughter as the sergeant-major, with a look of alarm on his face, caught him by the arm” This helps use word choice by stating how they ¨burst into laughter¨, this helps the reader understand that they all must have thought whatever they were laughing at was quite funny, while the sergeant-major believed it was serious and seeing how naive they were, he must have been alarmed. Another example of word choice would be, ¨The old man stared nervously at the sound of a door banging upstairs.” This can help the reader picture that although he had wished for something that he hadn’t completely believed in, he was still nervous. The old man must of partially believed the paw was real or the thought of it being real scared him even more. In “The Monkey’s Paw” W.W Jacobs uses word choice and descriptive imagery to develop the theme. As an author, W.W Jacobs has developed the skill of alluring writing by using descriptive words.
Another example of a self-serving belief is when Lefou sings about Gatson's wonderful traits as a way to cheer him up after being rejected by Belle for being "simple-minded.” Quickly, Gatson becomes overconfident in his abilities, reverting back to his initial self. Kruger & Dunning's research with students which is described in the textbook concludes that "those who are least competent are most overconfident about their abilities.” Therefore, Gatson skill in hunting and fighting are over-exaggerated to inflate his positive self concept. "People's overconfidence is particularly strong when they're given feedback that confirms their original views” (Law connections). Therefore, Gatson overconfident judgments about himself is reinforced by both Lefou and the civilians glorifying his achievements. Perceived control, which is defined as seeing uncontrollable events as at least partially under our control, is another self-serving belief.
Hekker concludes by mentioning that being a housewife is a heroic job if and only if the works that a housewife does is for children, husband, and house of someone else. On the other hand, in the article "Paradise Lost", which was written in 2006, Hekker describes her new life and opinion about housewife after her divorced.

Mr. Reyna has a girlfriend that he truly loves named Della Barrios, he’s the founder/leader of the 38th Street Gang. They wear such a different type of clothing known as the zoot suit. Always getting humiliated as he’s just being himself, an article written by Carmen Carrillo verbalizes , “Henry, the Chicano from the barrio, is part of the generation in the 1940’s who faced harassment and persecution related to their mode of dress, the zoot suit.” Growing up to be an adult, he precisely has a record with the cops. They all want to bring him down and bring themselves to justice. This man is such an independent individual where he needs absolutely no one to help him, or tell him what to do.
That idea is very absurd, for many different reasons. This includes the fact that it is barbaric, bluntly it is cold murder, and frankly there is no reason for it. To start, killing humans for fun is simply barbaric. Who has the right to take away another person’s life? Nobody should have that power, or capability, to remove someone from this earth.

In McCandless 's situation, I know I would do the same thing. I agree with Shaun Callarmans ' argument, I too think that McCandless was bright and ignorant at the same time(Callarmans, 2016). However I do admire McCandless ' courage and noble ideas he was crazy, silly and arrogant, but he truly believed he was going to find happiness. McCandless was looking at being ignorant, arrogant and silly. I agree he was arrogant and ignorant at the end that was what killed him.
Principal Victoria is replaced with a new character and newcomer to the town, PC Principal. PC Principal is an incredibly aggressive and violent character, hell bent on enforcing political correctness in the school. His Predecessor, Principal Victoria, was let go due to an incident where she referred to rape as a “Hot Cosby”. It might be a valid point of view to be wary of this sort of crass humor, to call it insensitive or in bad taste. PC Principal is a representation of the most radical reaction to this kind of humor.
Institutional racism are schools, police, and government organizations treating a certain race unfairly because of their ethnicity. For example, according to the La Times it states, that “the LAPD has always had a reputation of corruption and some racist police officers on the force” (Rubin, 2015). Institutionalized racism is when people with authority use their power to domain a person or a group of people. An example of this from the movie is when the couple gets pulled over because they were black and were driving a nice vehicle. The cops were looking for two black men who stole a similar car but the officer knew this couple were not the suspects they were looking for.

Nevertheless, the main character, Jim Smiley is extremely interesting and I 'm glad that I chose it. The story is about the encounter of two men. One of them is trying to find more information about a specific person as a favor to a friend. Instead of easy conversation and retrieving the information, the dialog goes in a completely wrong direction, talking about wrong person, the famous Jim Smiley and his extraordinary lifestyle. "There was a feller

Besides Felix being in this story, I really like the way you’re approaching this story. Nathanael 's alter ego makes me laugh because I always imagined him to be a smartass if he ever became a hero. And I’m glad someone has finally wrote him like that. As for Nino, I don’t know how I feel about him yet. I think I’ll have to wait and see what happens with him in the future.
