Even though the majority of the day has ended, Billy isn’t interested in getting dressed or even putting shoes on. Even though he is at his home, he feels no dire need to present himself. Billy is very pathetic and puts no effort into doing anything in his life. Not only does he evade fixing his heater or dealing with rodents in his house, but he doesn't even put appropriate clothes on; he has no self worth. By evading simple things, Vonnegut demonstrates Billy’s lack of interest and how that leads him to do nothing of importance in his
Mustapha Mond explains to John that books are prohibited because these people “couldn’t understand it.” I see this in society today as well. Nobody cares to know where their clothing comes from or where their plastic trash goes to because society has made it irrelevant. It is just simply something that is not spoken about and nobody cares to speak about it. The truth of sweatshops, inhumane working conditions, and landfills is drowned in a sea of irrelevance because the government does not want to make it relevant. Consequently, most people do not realize these problems
I avoided boats and wouldn’t take a plane or go abroad. Despite all these precautions, I couldn’t get rid of the image of myself drowning”(366). This expresses just how deep his fear of water is.

Tom’s house shows the stinginess as well. Irving writes “They lived in a forlorn-looking house that stood alone and had an air of starvation…no smoke ever curled from its chimneys; no traveler stopped at its door” (314), The setting of his house was extremely gloomy and poor, which led to travelers walking past the house without looking at it. This is because Tom is preoccupied with keeping his possessions to himself that he keeps his house very ugly. In these times, people were welcome into a stranger’s house, but because Tom refused to share his goods with anyone, nobody bothered to come to his house. As a result of the decrepit nature of his house and the lack of sharing with other visitors, tom is shown to be a very stingy man.
Meanwhile they are not helping them very much. They are putting no effort in trying to give them a lending hand. “Critics say colleges are not doing enough to meet – or even recognize – the needs of this group… She also believes that the college should maintain emergency housing for homeless students” (Bader 712).

Assessment Reflection When administrating the Reading Interest Inventory (Mariotti, n.d.), the Motivations to Read Profile Survey and asking the Conversational Survey Questions (Pitcher, et al., 2007), it gave insight to how Hailey felt about herself as a learner. The questions that stood out in my mind, is how I can help Hailey to be more success in the classroom as well as become a stronger reader overtime? I would like to look more in depth in Hailey’s comprehension skills and provide her educational strategies that will help Hailey to grow in her reading comprehension and give her some tools to help herself when she is having trouble. I am interested to see how Hailey reads orally, and to check her reading accuracy and fluency. Are these areas that are impacting Hailey as a learner as well?
