I’ve taken care of her since she was seven weeks old. Already a bit depressed after our parting I noted that this was for her own good and that I couldn’t have hoped for a better home for her. I walked to the car thinking this over and found myself already holding the door handle. Puff, being the tiny and fluffy kitten that she is, I double checked before I sat down that Puff wouldn’t accidentally die by me sitting on her. Phoenix forbid she’d have to be quiet for the rest of the
Because she had gone through a lot of tough times so during the book it really made you think about how lucky some people have it. The difference between characters really balance each other out and made the story more enjoyable. Through Cecily's part I was able to better understand where gwinny you was coming from
“Samantha...why?” “I had to, Mom” (Fittzpatrick 293). This particular conversation happens in the falling action of the story. Although it is very short, it tells the reader that Sam’s mom was not too happy she told Jase and was very shocked. As said before, dialogue helps the reader stay interested and give a bit more information about the character.
Class ESL 5 In the article, ”My English” by Julia Alvarez, the author wrote about her experience as she learn to speak English. Spanish was her mother tongue and struggled to speak English in the early phases. She thought that English was a form of Spanish, as there are different dialects in Spanish. Her parents spoke English when they didn’t want her and her siblings to know what was going on.
“The Grave Digger’s Handbook” leads to her learning how to read and write. After the bedwetting incident and Hans finding the book, Hans helps Liesel with writing by writing the ABCs and giving an example, for example “S” for sausmench. Every night Hans would read the book to her and this would help Liesel and Hans with their reading skills. When she went to school, she felt embarrassed because she was in a lower class for her age.
She continuously tries to brand the pointedness that nobody is the same and that there should be no individual placed into a stereotype. In these lines, “Whether they drift off / maddened, moon-rinsed, / or dock in the morning / scuff and chastened-- / is simply how it is, and I gather them in” (11-15). Those lines are utilized to clarify that regardless of your identity everybody is unique yet that there is an association since regardless of what way you think or act that is only the way it should be for you as the person that you are. I trust that she is kind of appearing out in this poem since the title
It is a shame that Sarah never got her Fidget back and that we never made up. In conclusion, both the girls were being extremely childish. Really, a fight about a Fidget Spinner? Sarah should have been more understanding and Ellie should have just owned up to it.
When she was choosing new books book club, she tended to lean towards the books that had girl protagonists. This, in correlation with Barnes and Blooms (2014), makes sense. The experiment they did found that students are most likely to pick stories that reflect either human or human like characteristics. In the case of Ava, we see that she did just that. She picked books with humans and in her case she picked books with female humans.
Looking Back Looking back through my papers that I have written for Dual Comp. English III, I realized that I struggled greatly with the use of transition words. I had always used the same few in my papers for other classes and did not understand their importance. I learned that transition words can make a paper really good if used correctly, or really bad if they are non-existent. While writing for Dual Comp.
As I begin to look back over these past few weeks at Bethel University, I have learned a few things. A few of the things I’ve learned was this APA style of writing, which was something very new to me. I’ve learned how to do a correct in-text citation, proper grammar, proper comma placement, and also that this is not something I can procrastinate on and wait until the last minute to try and do. Next, as I review Unit One, the very first post for this class I had a few errors that Mrs. Cindy pointed out to me.
In reading Lamott’s essay I found myself compelled to keep reading. It was the first time I read an article on how to be a better writer that basically says, do your worse work, and then learn from it. Interestingly enough there are components in her article that I can relate too such as in paragraph five where she discusses the initial writing and not being able to start the writing process. I can relate to this because when writing I sometimes stare at the computer screen thinking of the right words to open my essay with, even though I have ideas for other parts of the paper I am left stuck at the start line. Overall her article brought a type of excitement to me as I read it, almost as if it has given me hope for writing, especially with the thought of a five page paper lingering in the back of my mind.
Livia was a part of the early times in ancient Rome. She may not have been as well known as the men during her time, but she still had a lasting impact on society. Livia Drusilla was the daughter of Livius Drusus Claudianus and Alfidia. Livia was also called Julia Augusta. Livia played a major role in the cult of the deified Augustus.
After the French and Indian War in 1763, economic elements forced Britain to feel the need to raise funds to pay off the war debt. The policies that were enforced by the new prime minister resulted in America's fight for independence. Some of the taxed imposed upon the colonies included the Sugar Act, the Stamp Act and the Tea Act. All three of these acts forced the Americans to pay a tax on everyday goods. Americans viewed the new tax on sugar and other imports as a burden and violation of their rights, for the British, the taxes were a modest imposition necessary to pay for the cost of eliminating the French from North America and administering the colonies (Keene, 101-102).
Discrimination When people think of discrimination, the Holocaust comes to mind, but there are many more examples and ways of discriminating against others. This issue has been going on for centuries, and it is still a problem in today’s world. Discrimination is the isolating of others because of race, intelligence, and/or religion.
