I thought that this chapter was interesting because I think in a similar way. He believed that for one to be moral, they need to have an appropriate motive for undertaking a task. It cannot be based on selfish reasons and it does not have to appease the public. You do something because it is right. He also states that we often mistake ideas for our own because of conformity.
The children never admit to her accusations, which upsets the governess to sure a high degree that she even starts to blame the children of conspiring against her. All of the governess mental episodes is all just a lead up to prove that she is mentally insane. The governess believes she can see people that have passed away, and she views them as very dark and evil. There have been past caretakers involved with the uncle and children that were at the house frequently before her, and some have even passed away. The governess then had claimed to see some of the past workers, that have passed away.
She is repulsed by evil, disgusted by the fact there is so much problems and danger in the world. In Freak, she states that “every time [she] thinks about it [she] feels sick” (Freak, p, 156). Jade was referring to the fact that someone would ever dare to plant a bomb in a children’s room, where innocent kids would be. A possibly empty kitchen would have been better, where the chances of anyone getting hurt is low. But since the bomb was not there, she is extremely revolted.
Mary feigns a heart illness attempting to gain sympathy and to avoid hearing her teachers scold her for her tardiness. Mary behaves theatrically and goes to extremes to get out of this situation. Her exaggeration does not cause total destruction, but instead she causes interruption and distraction. Later when Rosalie Wells is reluctant to participate in Mary’s scheme, Mary threatens to tell her grandmother that Rosalie had stolen Helen [Last name]’s bracelet. Mary says, “I guess I’ll go tell Grandma, anyway.
At the start of there was a game called Making Sarah Cry that was played amongst Sarah, against her will, and the other kids. They played it because Sarah was different from the others. She was slow, not that smart, and to them, it seemed like she was born without a heart. The boy joined in because he knew that if he didn’t bully her as well then he would be bullied as well. He played the game even when he heard his mom in his saying, “Treat others with respect, son, the way you’d want them treating you.
There is a significant difference between finding reasons and looking for excuses. The reasons why a child becomes a bully does not justify their misbehavior, but perhaps they will help us to understand it. On the part of the victim they do at their early age an insecure person, nervous, withdrawn, isolated, etc., many times the children no longer want to attend school for the same fear and in some extreme cases they arrive at the suicide. The damage lies primarily in their personal safety and low self-esteem to feel that their existence is worth little. This article pertains to my question regarding what is bullying because reading many articles I did not find a precise definition for
Teenagers and adults are usually the one’s who don’t comprehend the children very well and cause the misunderstandings to happen. People get misunderstood on a daily basis. It can happen anywhere like at work, school, home, or even out on the streets. In this novel, Scout seems to be the one who gets misunderstood the most out of all the children and teenagers. Scout tries to explain to her teacher Miss.Caroline several times that her father Atticus did not teach her to read and write but Miss.Caroline misunderstands her and punishes her for thinking that she is lying.
It shows the disadvantages that many students face in public schools, such as being placed in lower level classes where the students are considered notoriously rude and ignorant by the school administrators. The movie works to disprove the idea of the students being lazy by showing the hard work they put into their notebook and the passion they show when Miss Gruwell teaches them with an attitude that shows she believes they are just as capable of any other students. “Freedom Writers” addresses the problem of the structure of the education system, showing the viewers how the system makes it more likely for certain students to be left behind or left out of academic success. The movie “Freedom Writers” contains fatal flaws in its portrayal of the characters. The content is riddles with racist and classist connotations that reduce the efficacy of the movie’s attempt to seem like a progressive film.
So, what if it occurred when schools started paying students? If a kid is getting bullied there’s a good chance that they might not do their best on tests or quizzes. If this happens and they are getting bullied they will have little to no motivation. For all we know, this whole thing could lead someone to suicidal. If you think about it if someone’s not getting paid but their friend is, they might feel bad about themselves and get depression.
Mary’s biggest challenge was that she needed liability from other students saying that they witnessed their teachers being sexually involved with one another. In this scene, Mary decided to Rosalie in her place and crush her self-confidence. Mary wanted to display the power she has over Rosalie because Mary knew Rosalie stole Helen's bracelet. Mary frightened Rosalie by blackmailing to tell Mrs. Tilford about Rosalie being a thief and ruining her future. While Rosalie's apology brought slight satisfaction, Mary realized she can have the liability by using Rosalie.
They also say that there needs to be a balancing test with schools ability to have law and order to run classes to make sure legal activities and drugs aren’t in the school to get in the way of educational objectives. This case is freedom vs order argument. They say that the vice-principal had the constitutional right to search the bag, he had reasonable suspicion and that is the magic word that gives students expectation of privacy while balancing it with law and order of the school. The court goes on to say that he’s further not violating the constitution because once he saw the evidence, it was in plain view and theirs a plain view doctrine which is another exception to the fourth amendment which
If a teacher feels that a student is blocking a hallway, then he or she may aim, and fire away. As a result, students will be discouraged from stand stationary as it will be necessary for those offending students to bring extra clothes if they persist on being unmindful of other and creating massive traffic jams. Lastly, if all the other parts of my solution fail then we have no choice but to give the offenders a taste of their unacceptable behavior. Students who feel that they are being robbed of their time during passing periods will hold a day in which they will bring their friend and stand motionless at the busiest hallways of Las Cruces High School during passing periods and at the end of the school day. Thus, they will effectively create a barrier to discourage the offenders from getting to class or going back home.
It becomes next to impossible to strive to be better when the youth are constantly told they are worthless by people of higher authority and even their own peers. In the novel, Dr. Rios describes a concept He calls “dummy smart”. During his study he noted that there were multiple youth who were doing very well in school, but were labeled as being deviant and dumb by school officials. They purposely acted as if they were uninterested in school, but when called upon they always knew the answer, which shows they are more willing to gain respect from people of higher authority in a more negative way. As the novel progresses Dr. Rios goes on to explain how some of the youth wanted to change, but felt
All she had to do was look at what Atticus had to go through but through his eyes and she would have understood a little better. Last Scout learns not to judge people because of their past and the stories you heard about them. Scout heard bad things about Boo and immediately thought he was a scary monster. After she got older she finally realized everything she learned was very important life lessons. To Kill a Mockingbird was full of lessons to learn about life.
Pelton resigned solely because her students complained to their parents, who then decided to defend their students who were already in the wrong. This allows for children to grow up believing that they can cheat and get away with it. These children then spread this ideology to their friends who are also beginning to think it is okay to cheat. All these children are therefore growing up believing that it is okay to cheat; they then teach their own children that cheating is an acceptable behavior. This results in a national decline in integrity because the upcoming generations are being raised with the ideology that it is appropriate for them to
