He uses the example that students ask to leave class to go text someone in the hall and he know when they lie to him about needing to use the restroom. He still allows them to go because then they have to depend on him for any freedom that they are given. Lesson number five is an Intellectual dependency, it is to wait for the decision or choice from an expert to go off of instead of trying to go on your own.

Cathey’s “My own little secret” story, which effectively makes an appeal to pathos that creates a sympathetic image to readers. Wolverton explains that Mr. Cathey didn’t read at his appropriate level and that he was reading books that were at a “First Grade, Level 1, Ages 6-7.” Also, having to read quietly so that none of his teammates wouldn’t hear him reading aloud (Wolverton, 117). Wolverton goal was to make the readers have some type of sympathy for Mr. Cathey. This strategy of using pathos helps Wolverton to persuade and entertain his readers and also helps to strengthen his argument at the end.

Max’s teacher’s begin to see that potential too “...she finally gave up on trying to trying to make me talk in class, and instead she waits until study hall, where she asks me the same questions alone and I tell her the answers”(81). A third symbol in this is the empty book Freak gives Max towards the end of the book. Freak is giving Max a new start, telling him “I want you to fill it up with our adventures”(150). The empty book is a chance to restart and put everything about his parent behind him. But of course that is difficult for Max because he thinks he can’t write.
I sit on the edge of my seat, as I wait for my professor to explain the next bit of symbolism hidden in Jan Van Eyck’s, Ghent Altarpiece. To me, the silence of the classroom screams of suspense, even if, a few classmates are sleeping. Each detail painted or formed by the artist represents a conscious effort to communicate beyond words. Their work joins in the eternal quest to define a specific reality, to capture an ephemeral moment. I have never enjoyed a course more than my first art history course.
One time, I was enjoying reading my book “The Lightning Thief”, and out of nowhere, Jacob just takes my book and put it inside his locker. I tried politely asking him to give me back my book and I even tried using force, but Jacob was just as stubborn as a rusty lock. I knew I can’t get my book back with politeness or strength, so I had to use my intelligence. I went back to my classroom for a minute or two, came back to Jacob’s locker and deceived him.

Basically, he talks about his classmates and education environment in this school. As I understood from the text, the education environment was not good to grow good students. Rose explains that his teachers were not so interested in teaching and they used physical violence to control students. As for the students, many of them had negative behaviour and no desire to study, but Rose noted their true personalities and says that they weren't just troublemakers.
After I am able to drive, I decided to go back to school to get a degree. I surprised they let me take ESL test when I came to school. I heard from my husband there just have placement test, and I thought English could not improve in a short period, so I decided focus study math. Without surprised, even I felt the ESL test not hard, but I still failed. I felt upset, blamed my husband, and complained school did not give me chance retest in a long time.
Levine says that when he used to teach in California, he never used to look at the clock to see when the class is ending, because he always heard the noise of shuffling books and noticed the strange expressions on the faces of the students in class who were ready to leave.

In the book “I just want to be average” by Mike Rose, Mr. Rose tells the story about his lack of education growing up and how he was put into a lower class of scholars. The program that Rose was enrolled in was the Vocational Track , through his own words this was a “dumping ground for the disaffected ”. Rose was placed in the vocational track through an accident because he had the same last name of another student. He enjoyed that type of learning environment because not much was expected from him. The other students that were also in the vocational track were said to be the slackers or the slow students.
