At the beginning of the movie, it seemed as though Regina and Gretchen had a dominating conflict style because they were both aggressive in their own way and were uncooperative (Hocker & Wilmot, 2014, p. 156). They did all that they could to keep their power and cared less about other people’s feelings. At the beginning, Cady seemed to have an obliging conflict style, she accommodated to what others wanted so that she could fit in (Hocker & Wilmot, 2014, p. 163). She agreed to help Janis because she wanted friends and she started acting like the Plastics when she got close to them because she wanted to fit in with them as well. At the beginning of the movie Janis had an avoidance conflict style.
Her only option left was to let Gatsby take the blame and walk away with no consequences. If Daisy had truly loved Gatsby, it is possible that she could have bought her way out of the situation, but she didn’t love Gatsby, and this is what led to him taking the blame. Despite Daisy’s clear nonchalance towards Gatsby’s feelings Gatsby still felt as if Daisy loved him, why else would he take the blame for something so massive, he wouldn’t have done that for someone who was only a friend. Daisy continues to deceive Gatsby because she knows that he will do whatever she wants. This connects to the entire book because Daisy is a deceitful woman, and the book as a whole portrays woman as unfaithful, an example of this
I don’t want to look like everyone else. I want to look like me. And I’m not going to let them change me”(4). This quote shows that Marilyn is trying to prove her point that the conformity is wrong and she shouldn’t have to face conformity in her life and that she does not want to face the conformity any longer. In The Giver, Jonas decides not to take the pill because he knows that it is not something that needs to be done and it is just making everyone feel and think the same.
Antigone knew that she would be put to death if she buried Polyneices but she would rather die doing the right thing, rather than living and being surrounded with evil. Likewise, Rosa Parks believed that God was not pleased with racism and segregation. Rosa Parks thanks God that she was able to hold her ground and said, “I was fortunate God provided me with the strength I needed at the precise time conditions were ripe for change. I am thankful for Him every day that he gave me the strength not to move”(Hare 1). Rosa Parks was quiet and respectful to others, and she expected the same kind of respect in return.
Kate Chopin meant that scene to reflect how men thought that women's actions that weren't within the norm were irrational, even though he could do the same action and nobody would question his sanity. His hypocrisy was another demonstration of the treatment of women at this time in history. Personally, I felt sympathy for Edma Pontellier because was married to such a sexist and hypocritical man, but with consideration to the time period it can be understood why Kate Chopin would write such a radical novel. In my opinion, the purpose of this scene, and novel as a whole, was not meant for future generation to look back and criticize the society but rather a plead for change within her
One of the big reasons of why Rosa was a great hero was that she stood up for what she believed in and didn’t let other people tell her what she could and couldn’t do. She wasn’t scared of the consequences of what would happen if she did do something that was wrong. When they told her to move to the back of the bus that night she was tired of being told to do something that wasn’t fair and she knew something had to be done. When people thought that she was crazy for not doing
In order to live a successful life on their own, one must show a sense of responsibility. Jobs, schools, and even in relationships, people do not want someone that is willing to put it all on the line, but would rather weigh all their options and outcomes. On another note, one will normally see teenagers and young adults being the risk takers, while people never really witness the older people putting themselves in harm's way. People most likely see this because the older people are wiser, therefore have already experienced the exhilaration of living a “YOLO” life as well as the horrible events that must have transpired for them to learn their lesson. If one chooses to live a heedless life, sooner or later they will realize the mistake they
In scene 2 Creon figures out that Antigone was the one who buried Polyneices even though she knew she had broken the law. Antigone believes that people would praise her but, because Creon is present, they do not say anything. “I should have praise and honor for what I have done. All these men here would praise me were their lips frozen shut with fear of you... No, they are with me. But they keep their tongues in leash.” (Page 507) When Antigone says this it shows how she will not say that people are mad at her for breaking the law, she will not give in and say she did something wrong.
It is much more effective for the students to have their own perception of the characters and scenes first, then they can watch the story come to life. The audience will already have knowledge on the message and a personal insight on Jeannette Walls’ emotions. Watching the movie first will already put a visual in their minds, which will not let them create their own private image. Reading is an intimate experience, all readers perceive a picture differently. Although no movie based on a book is fully satisfactory, it is always amusing to watch the storyline in a different light.
The expectations pinned on her by Jennie, contribute to that narrator's identity. The narrator is worried that Jennie will find her writing, which isn't allowed, “I must not let her find me writing...she thinks it is the writing which made me sick” (Stetson 650). The narrator loves to write and it makes her happy, but she is told not to write from her husband John. Since writing for females was accepted, it affected the narrator. Writing helped the narrator to be happy and be productive.
I feel this scene shows that women can endure pain and are strong.The movie demonstrates how women are independent. Women don’t need men to do things for them, they are capable of doing all things. This movies shows that after World War II women emerged from the household and showed their true potential. Baseball was one thing that proved women’s abilities in society, along with many other abilities such as working outside the home.They broke away from the stereotype that women belonged in the home where they would cook, clean and care for the children. They showed that they were not made for the house, they were independent and capable.
It is important for a person to know their true identity. If they do not know their true identity then they are not truly themselves, they are someone or something else. Most people choose to ignore who they really are because they are afraid that people will make fun of them for being different, but being different is a good thing and that should never hold anybody back. In fact, it should make people proud that no one else is quite like them. For example, Hercules and April both were left out because they were different, but they used their differences from others and became leaders where they were.
ACT Structure Writing F. Scott Fitzgerald is a great writer,especially for the novel The Great Gatsby, that takes our breath away.While the movie of The Great Gatsby is another work of art because it allows us to visualize each scene of the book with actual acting. While reading the book, there were parts that were confusing, but were clarified while watching the movie.

The one point that stuck out the most in the book was at the end when Jay Gatsby was killed.
