"(Page 207) He is saying that Mayella didn’t think that there would be a trial and that Tom would go to jail until after everything happened. This is just one of the very detailed pieces of evidence that probably took up a long time to think of. In conclusion there are many examples of empathy in To Kill a Mockingbird the first example is shown when Mrs. Maudie tells the kids not to bother Boo Radley, the second example is when Atticus is nice to Mrs. Dubose. The last example of empathy is when Atticus defends Tom in the case even knowing that he will lose. Overall empathy is great and everyone should be empathetic to
Peg had to calm her down to tell her that Edward was someone not to fear, despite his gargantuan scissors for hands. Additionally, in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, after the characters hear the song about Willy Wonka, a various number of shot-reverse-shots were used to show their blank faces as they looked at him in disgust. The only people who thought of Willy Wonka as normal were Charlie and his grandpa. The other parents, especially didn’t regard him as normal. When Wonka put out his hand, none of them even thought twice about shaking his hand.
Some may say that educational systems are superior, however, some can argue that the educational system needs a change. Francine Prose’s purpose in “I Know Why The Caged Bird Cannot Read” stood out clearly, to inform parents on how the current system of education is ineffective to young learners. Her use of words, ethos, logos and pathos appeals to educators and students to inspire change in their education standards. Prose wittingly begins her essay with a shocking opening paragraph; her strong language in which attacks the various works of literature. Her full use of strong language diminishes pieces of literature’s worth and questions their true significance.

In reading Dr. Rose Ihedigbo’s “Sandals in the Snow” and Amparo B Ojeda’s “Growing Up American: Doing the Right Thing”, I noticed Both Cultures take respect very seriously as they both seen in american culture children have no respect. In “Sandals in the Snow”, Dr. Ihedigbo explains how in the home, her children were respectful “...they respected their parents greatly, politely relating to them, paying deference to them and recognizing that they were the leaders and authoritarians of the household” (Ihedigbo 62). The Ihedigbo children have witnessed American children being disrespectful. James and David were in the mall and heard a white child yelling, “I want this pair of shoes, mom! I swear, mom, why are you so dumb?
The Influence of Visual Literacy Nancy Sounthornchote CGD 218 Instructor Day February 16, 2015 The Influence of Visual Literacy Brian Kennedy, the director of Dartmouth’s Hood Museum of Art, strongly believes that visual literacy is the understanding to construct meaning from images. Kennedy argues that visual literacy is not a skill, but a structure of critical thinking and a universal language that is imperative in today’s digital age. The textbook defines visual literacy as the competent creation and consumption of visual messages. These activities require not only the physical ability of sight but the cognitive skills of attention, perception, critical thinking, evaluation, and synthesis of other sensory information and experiences. Both of these definitions for visual literacy are quite different in my opinion.

That being said, last but not least another piece of her work that connects with her life is the novel "A Mercy" because it 's about war and how there were economic hardships and struggles during that time, and how a veteran who must battle poverty during that time, and how a veteran who must battle poverty and troubling childhood memories. This connects with Toni because she grew up during the Great Depression and suffered a lot of economic hardships. In conclusion, Toni Morrison an African-American novelist, editor, and professor has achieved many phenomenal success just by going with what she believed in which was the role of African-Americans received critical and popular commentaries, which led her to be the first African-American female to win the Nobel Prize for a
Harlem Renaissance included many amazing writers. Zora Neale Hurston was a novelist who was known for guarding African American rights.
