He is telling Miss Kinnian that everything is good, but when you really analyze the text, Charlie is only doing that so she will feel better. Another example of how he does not truly show that he’s glad he got to be smart is in his progress report on July 24th: “I dont know any work but the job I used to have at Donnegans Plastic Box Company. I dont want to go back there because they all knew me when I was smart and maybe theyll laugh at me” (Keyes, 304). Again, with evidence from his previous progress reports, his note to Miss Kinnian was just a facade, merely trying to make her believe that he was fine. This is significant because Charlie seems to have lost his confidence in
From the novel recalls Chris’s ways in school of not listening it teachers and feeling that rules seemed to be overrated. Being the stubborn kid he was, he still had a brilliant side of bringing good grades. Setting apart form his grades he was still a bit ignorant and stubborn for his parents to handle.

Throughout the piece, Staples uses devices that will help the reader better understand the struggles that the character has to face on a daily basis. Staples uses imagery, so the reader can picture it when reading his work, and to help create a sort of dark and lonely tone. The character uses several personal experiences which use a large amount of imagery. This is better shown when staples writes “ As a softy who is scarcely able to take a knife to a raw chicken- let alone hold it to a person’s throat……”(542), The character feels as though he is being judged for being a certain color when really he is afraid himself of getting hurt; he is also very humble and shy because he is afraid to even harm something that isn’t alive. When being treated as guilty and wrong, shame will follow; the character feels shameful that the lady is afraid of him when he has done nothing wrong.
She did not have much hope left anyways for her life because she annoyed the misfit with her ugly and selfish ways. In another quote the grandmother implies that the misfit is a good man by stating, "Yes it's a beautiful day," said the grandmother. "Listen, " she said, "You shouldn't call yourself the misfit because I know you're a good man at heart. I can just look at you and tell" (421). The grandmother doesn't know the misfit from Adam, yet she already gave him a persona that he has to match.
Within Ways of Reading, by Anthony Petrosky, there is an excerpt called the "Loss of the Creature", by Walker Percy. In Percy 's excerpt he writes about many different stories and examples that are all about different things. He shows that everyone 's 'Value P ' is different because everyone sees things different. By saying this Percy is trying to say that we, the readers, should not set expectations on an experience that we will have. He also talks of planners and consumers and how one will worry about the planning of the experiences and the other will not worry and just experience what they experience.
(99) Over a short period of time, Drummond was able to influence many people from the jury that they shouldn 't take the Bible literally and that everything isn 't as black and white as they previously thought. Drummond got the crowd laughing at his jokes and exposed the jury to different perspectives and some of them understood him. If the community were to teach evolution and creationism in schools, the children would be more educated and would be able to form their opinions based on what they were taught instead of being thrown in jail for their thoughts. Readers who argue that evolution and creationism cannot coexist may claim that because only some of the jury agreed with Drummond, it will be impossible to get the whole town to accept the idea of evolution and creationism being taught together. While it is true that not everyone in the room was pro-evolution at the time, if a law was passed to allow both subjects to be taught, a new generation of acceptance and learning can sprout

Instead of letting this put up barriers in their friendship they use this to challenge each other which ends in them learning more about each other. But to others this friendship seemed odd. “They both sounded so childish, and I got a little angry when Davey Cantor started talking about “that snooty Danny Saunders”” (Page 149) In that moment Reuven school mates would not understand him being friends with someone like Danny but later on in the book they accepted it. Even
In “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Readers” by Kavitha Rao, she express her opinion on the topic that the current generation is not reading for fun. She mentions several experience she had with other people, that don 't see the benefit in reading for fun. She says that since people aren 't reading more leisure anymore they 're becoming less creative, inarticulate, have poor communication skills and low confidence, which is caused by parents forcing their kids to read, and the education system need to have students memorize textbooks and nothing else. After reading this article I find myself disagreeing with Rao on several points she made, I don’t believe the modern attitude towards reading is causing people to be self absorbed and unimaginative, she also claims that book clubs don 't encourage reading for fun, parents are forcing their children to read boring books which turned them away from reading and that the educational system is to blame for college students for being inarticulate. In the very first paragraph Rao mentions a the conversations she had with two different people, the first person say “I never read fiction” and “After what 's the point of a book if it doesn 't teach you anything.” Another person says “Fiction is not real, no?” and adds “I only like to read real stories to improve myself.” She states that many young people don 't see the benefit in read unless its to help improve themselves, or to ace a job interview.

People with schizophrenia are known to be paranoid, some constantly think that they are being watched or heard. Although they are different, we are living in the same world as them, they have to go through the same things that we face. While they go through the same things as us they might have other mental or physical obstacles that we may never have to go
This gets a little complicated though because students are often not heard or asked their opinions. Feeling like their opinion doesn’t matter is very discouraging to students but the ones that dare to make themselves heard say that is very inspiring to actually get their point across. Betty Jo Jordan, executive assistance to the State Superintendent of West Virginia, said after speaking with a few middle to high school age girls, “I think sometimes we completely ignore the fact that these kids think a lot about a lot of things. We don’t really ask them for their opinions or their ideas on how to make schools better... That was very enlightening.” (Patrick) About a year or so after that group of girls spoke to her, I had a personal conversation with one of them and she has informed me on how much more she values her education from the experience. School reform, as well as school itself, should be utilized to benefit students in every way possible and I see no better way to do that than putting them right into
I feel that they do not take my social identities into account because I am there to help. Also, because we do not really shed any light on cultural differences at the after school program, it is not something they really think about. I feel very different from my students one reason simply can be is that a lot of them wear a headscarf or some type of veil and I do not. I feel that I stick out like a sore thumb, but I do not feel them judging me. Also, I once saw a child, Rofaida, praying before eating her snack that we offer to them.
