Do you know what your child or/ children read at school? Do you want your child or/ children reading about murder, dismember bodies, lying and acting phony? The Tell-Tale Heart is a story about a mad man with a lot of issues like, being mad, having a disease and murdering. The story encourages lying, murdering, and fakeness. Therefore, I feel tell-tale heart is not appropriate for middle school students.
The school method of criticism that I will use to analyze the poem "How the Grinch Stole Christmas” is a Marxist critic. It is a theory, the consciousness of a given class at a given historical moment derives from modes of material production that were demonstrated through the relationship between the Grinch and the people of Whoville. The poem is about the Grinch who hates Christmas so he wants to ruin it for people in Whoville, in which he achieved by stealing the presents from them. The Grinch’s hatred towards Christmas was directly shown in the poem, “The Grinch hated Christmas! The whole Christmas season!”
The author on the other hand, does not reveal the use of them which builds up tension. These stones are used to attack the winner of the lottery and kill him/her. These children were indoctrinated into this practice and are almost victimized by adults. Jackson builds up suspense in the story
They then trick them and then decide to lock the parents leaving them to die. The resolution explains that the plot is the children’s addiction to the technology-based housing and the nursery make them hate their parents. This causes them to lie and trick to their parents, which soon leads the parents to shut down the house. Peter and Wendy are extremely offended by this matter. Due to the fact, they trick and deceive their parents into the nursery and killing them.
The real world is full of ups and downs as well as ugly people, and schools only touch on the positive side of a matter rather than the truth. After the court case is done, Scout is being eaten up by the fact that people say certain concepts and act a different way as in this quote said by Scout, “How can you hate Hitler so bad an’ then turn around and be ugly about folks right at home”(Lee 331). It is in the real world when Scout is caught up in the hypocrisy. Scout never learned in school how messed up people can be in the real world, and it is in big events and activities such as the court case where she learned this helpful lesson.
While Wanderer was drawing out the picture Melanie keep pestering Wanderer when Melanie found out that Wanderer was drawing Jared her lover Melanie hot mad and since she's still a conscious and very rebellious she was able to throw the pencil out of Wanderer and her hand.

The protagonist, Scout Finch, a young tomboy who grows up in a town full of fear matures as the story progresses and learns how to manoeuvre through a frightening society. The Finch family triumphs countless misfortunes that involve discovering the unknown. The theme of fear of the unknown which leads to ignorance in To Kill a Mockingbird is shown through character interactions among the town. The novel shows a great deal of childish fears.
The comparison between The History teacher and A barred owl. In The poem “A Barred Owl” and “The History Teacher”by Richard Wilbur and Billy Collins, superbly exemplified that altering the truth, can lead to major consequences. In these two poems the authors describe the evils of lying, but in Collins’ poem. The reader can easily be convinced that there are certain situations when it is unacceptable.
Old books got burn and the state ruled people thoughts. Evil stated to develop and it created fear. The citizens followed the leader and dystopia was created. The decision to leave society If he decides to leave the society he will have the opportunity to learn from the books and develop a new way of thinking. He might also start trusting people and develop strong friendships.
Something new and unfamiliar about the movie was they was the bad teacher was teaching his students how to fight and the way he treated them. He made his students beat each other and how he would also hit his students. I experience sad emotions because I thought it was really messed up how a group of kids didn 't like Dre and just because of that they would bully him and beat him up without letting him have a chance to defend himself. The movie made me realize that when people are new to a school or to a new place it can make them feel like they don 't fit in.
Because the social ladder is built based off of race, Tom immediately gets cast to the bottom without a second thought. “Sorry” is italicized to illustrate the disbelief, which contributes to the fact that the public does not accept Tom’s honest sympathy for Mayella, nor do they even attempt to understand him. Because of this narrow-minded thinking, Tom’s biased persecution eventually escalates to his death. Another example of the little empathy the town possesses is presented in Scout’s third-grade classroom, where lessons are learned from current events. Given that To Kill a Mockingbird is set around the 1930s, of course, one day the topic of Hitler is brought up.
Mrs. Miller, George and Lydia should have stood up to the kids instead they allowed the culture of rebellion to flourish. Although children symbolize innocence, in the context of these stories, the children signify selfishness, violence, and manipulation. “The Veldt” takes two children and shapes them into spoiled parent killers, while “Miriam” presents us with a little girl who is psychologically tormenting a lonely, elderly woman by the same name. These stories are staggering because they contradict the deeply entrenched perceptions society has of children: blameless, loving, curious presences who can bring so much love and joy to their caregivers.
I chose the Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt. The moral of this book is how it feels to have a school that is not normal, and have a teacher hate your guts. This book is about a seventh grader named Holling Hoodhood, and he goes around the school, acting serious about things. When things go downhill and all his classmates get mad at him, he tries his best to fix it. Mrs. Baker hated Holling, but then Holling acted like a friend to her, and the hate relationship was over.
Len also had problems being made fun of at school, and was always being bullied by the people that he called jocks. When Len decided that he was going to go to school and shoot people and commit suicide, I believe he did this because he had a mental disorder, a bad homelife, and he wanted to make a point. The reason why I think that Len was trying to make a point is because he wrote "stop the violence" in his own blood on the
Shirley Jackson tries to explain to the readers that lying to someone else about something important can often lead into more trouble. In the story, Laurie causes mischief at school, and lies to his parents that a boy named Charles caused all of the trouble that he had actually did. By creating Charles, Laurie had to keep lying to his parents in order for him to stay out of trouble at home. However, Laurie’s parents became suspicious of Charles when they found out that he became a helper at school, and later discovered themselves that Laurie was the source of the trouble within the classroom. This probably made his parents infuriated; more so than if he simply confessed earlier.
