He uses slang in his writing, such as the statement, “Boy, was I wrong” (79). It helps his article appeal to younger generations. Also, he uses dialogue to advance the article, either between himself the reader or between himself and an imaginary “Dungeon Master”(79). It helps him draw his reader even further into his rhetoric. He references different parts of pop culture, with statements like “local youths can’t tell or write a story longer than 140 characters” (79) and “strapping on my headset and playing ‘Halo’ or ‘Gears of War’” (83).
Much of the physical and mental health lessons that the council has to offer are great for my at risk students at the Brown Center. I like how they are for teen boys that are dealing with many of the issues my students face. The article on “Boys in the Media” is a great one because it talks about how the media portrays men and what a young adult male should have to be in the media's eyes. I really enjoy how the article guides them to think about their own lives. The activities are great when we have the time to get to them like for “Boy in the Media” we did a group collage where we all found pictures, writings, and headlines of things that the media portrays as what a man is in today's world.

The play” Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead” was an interesting look at bullying through the eyes of teenage peanuts characters. We all remember our innocent childhood friends that walked us through the experiences of life, introducing new ideas and everyday interactions. Well, those kids grew up and Charlie Brown and the crew now show us the reality of the teenage struggles in the 21st century. The interpretation was very insightful and the characters felt real, creating a connection with childhood friends and reminding us of the reasons we loved them.
This turns off both fat and non-fat audience members because they cannot relate to or find humor in this argument. If kindergarten teachers were taken out of the statement the argument would be more believable however still not sarcastic. In an attempt to get the reader to find a personal experience to relate to his argument that fat acceptance is necessary value in our society, Schwartz says, “fat people are seen as throwbacks to a more primitive time... The modern world is passing them by.” (181).

Candy is willing to provide for the good of the group, which allows Lennie to take care of the rabbits, while giving George his own place to work and settle in. Having Candy along gives George the companion he needed, providing a balance within the three. Despite George and Lennie being involved in a very positive relationship, the two of them on their own create a very toxic relationship. George is often repressed by Lennie without Lennie being aware of what he’s really doing. George is basically Lennie’s caregiver because he is constantly reminding him what was said, and what to do in trouble, so Lennie has an advantage in the relationship over George.

He gave us insight into his childhood days, trips, and adventures.
All children are different so it is the parent’s responsibility to determine whether or not their children can handle the different media. Some media critics believe that violent cartoons, video games, movies etc. are good for children. Gerard Jones gives an example in his essay “Violent media is good for kids” which he explains how violent media can be good for children, Jones explains his point by giving an example of his son. Jones tells how he exposed his son to marvel comics which helped him in his kindergarten experience. The marvel characters gave Jones’s son the desire of “transforming himself into a bloodthirsty dinosaur to embolden himself for the plunge into preschool” (373).
Responses to projective material on the Thematic Apperception Test (TAT) indicate issues that may be impacting Christopher. Of particular concern was that many of his stories started to lack any form of structure or organization as he continued to tell them. They also became very disjointed and confusing, which appeared as if he was struggling to integrate the card into a story. For some cards he would start telling his story right away, but for many cards he would “think out loud” and figure out what story he can integrate from the story. In one card, he starts by stating, “Are all these pictures in black and white?
Author Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote, "Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow." Based on my experiences, I agree with Emerson's statement. If you have mastered a task, what is the point of sticking to a pattern? I believe that unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow because you have to go outside of your comfort zone to learn new things and keep yourself excited, becoming stagnant will bore and frustrate you, and you can discover new talents and abilities by going beyond what you are used to. My first reason for agreeing with Emerson's statement is that you have to go outside of your comfort zone to learn new things.
The friendships you have when you're twelve years old are unlike any others that you will ever have again in your life. Stand by me portrays this idea with an unearthing adventure of a group of kids. The young group of boys; Gordie, Chris, Teddy, and Vern all leave their awkwardness behind on this journey to a dead boy outside of their small town, Castlerock, in an attempt for fame. The older “gang” of teenage boys believe they could benefit from this fame which causes conflict for both groups. But through this experience, the young boys understand each other's difficulties in relation to success in life.
