They experience isolation and it becomes evident the way they get into the state of seclusion. They are troubled students in school and the people around them tend to perceive them in a grim way. They end up becoming aware that family and friends cure this state of isolation. Firstly, Holden Caulfield and Tyler Miller can both be considered troubled students in High School.

In the story it says, “ “I went home very sad and cried into my pillow that night so grandmother wouldn’t hear me. It seemed like a cruel coincidence that I had overheard that conversation” (108). This quote is noteworthy because the point of view, first person, shows how Martha feels about getting the jacket. If this was written in third person, the reader might not understand how much the jacket truly means to her. This piece from the text shows that Martha was very upset about hearing she might not receive the jacket.
Helen Burns is a student that seems to be perfect to Jane, but when she sees Helen being punished by Miss Scatcherd she is taken aback,“...I paused from my sewing, because my fingers quivered at this spectacle with a sentiment of unavailing and impotent anger…”(1032). Victorian schools were known to inflict punishments such as these and many more when trying to discipline the children. Historians throughout history can agree and testify that,“Corporal punishment was an important part of the educational experience of many children educated during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.”(Middleton). The use of corporal punishment effected many children throughout this time period and could leave the children with serious psychological damage due to the abuse by administrators of the
The author’s choice of the word humiliation makes readers understand that such a simple action for us is actually a problematic action for the old woman. In those seventeen years since her husband passed away, the pain inside her body has followed her and yet, she never asked for help. Her “strange feeling of being under the earth” suggests once again that she does not want to be involved in the outside world. This metaphor allows the reader to understand that the old
Sedaris tells the reader that he was so uncomfortable in the classroom that it spread to his life outside of school. He did not speak French anywhere else. The teacher had such a bad influence on him that he would not speak the language he was learning outside of the classroom. However, the teacher is not always to blame for the students’ lack of knowledge. It all comes down to people’s attitude towards learning.
This is a great book but still isn’t good enough to be one of my favorites. The book can be slow paced at times with a somewhat confusing plot, but overall it is a great story of a girl who needs to find her way in life. Welcome to the Protectorate, a town that has been casted over by the fear and darkness of the evil witch who haunts the forest. The witch will leave the villagers alone at one terrible cost, a sacrifice of a newborn each year. The grand elder, Gherland, his nephew, Antain, and the warriors known as the sisters, went to the house of the newborn that was to be sacrificed.
Estella is cold to Pip for one reason, her mother raised her like that, Miss Havisham is using Estella to ruin the lives of other men. As the story ends and Pip gives his goodbye speech, both Miss Havisham and Estella realize what is happening. The speech changed their mindsets and Miss Havisham realizes what she has done was completely immoral. The speech did not impact Estella as much, what broke her was how she missed out on Pip. A Biddy says, “I had heard of her as leading a most unhappy life, and as being separated from her husband, who had used her with great cruelty, and who had become quite renowned as a compound of pride, avarice, brutality, and meanness” (Dickens, Chapter fifty-nine).
She didn’t like her sister Maggie she also doesn’t like her mom allot and she didn’t like their house.

The house is also noted for the absence of any bond between the house and its members. Sophie Mol experiences the stifling atmosphere of the house and considers herself “A captured spy in enemy territory” (TGST 238) and longs to escape from such a suffocating situation. Margaret Kochamma, Sophie Mol’s mother and Chacko’s ex-wife, also has a similar experience. She comes to Ayemenem “to heal her wounded world” (TGST 263) after the death of her husband Joe. Instead, she loses her child and experiences “the fear and gloom that hung over the Ayemenem House” (TGST 263).
Teachers´ wellbeing at work is especially valuable, since it is directly linked to effective teaching and therefore student motivation for learning (Pakarinen et al., 2010). Due to the sensitive and complex nature of the teaching profession and the pivotal role teachers are expected to play, it is vital at this point to investigate what actually damages teachers´ wellbeing, in which form and what the results of it are. According to Lopez and Agrawal (2009) teachers report that schools in general provide poor work environment. A myriad of factors may be the reason for teacher fatigue, such as continuous changes in work content, competition, and uncertainty of employment (Lopez and Agrawal, 2009). The consequent feeling of fatigue and cynicism can even lead to an occupational crisis (Hurti, 2002).
