Another point is Amy says that her mother is not hard to understand, it 's that other people find it hard to comprehend her talking. People who do not know her mother well probably won 't give themselves time to connect with her mother 's English. As described by Amy from her personal view that her mother 's English was "perfectly clear, perfectly natural" (Tan, 2006, p. 21). Specific evidence that supports was the author stating, "Her language, as I hear it, is vivid, direct, full of observation and imagery." (Tan, 2006, p. 20).
Besides learning about immigration and separation, I feel as though students whose parents are not immigrants will still empathize with Saya’s family. They will read about how much Saya misses her mother and how difficult it is for them to communicate. Students can also see how Saya’s father persevered and did not give up on trying to get the story of Saya’s mother to the public through writing letters. Students can learn about the importance of speaking up and not staying silent, since Saya’s letter led to giving her mother’s case coverage and eventually having her mother released from the corrections facility. I do believe there are multiple things that students can learn by using this book, and that an activity on storytelling and writing letters can be used in a lesson plan with the
Having a similar subject means that these two stories are bound to be similar in one way or another, right? Of course, they do. Immigration isn’t the only subject the two texts share, they also share smaller subjects, such as sacrifices parents make and separation. In Red Umbrella, the main character says, “‘They’re not going with us.’ My fear turned into anger. ‘You’re sending us away, aren’t you?’”, and her father states how he and her mother are doing this for the kids own good.
Her main concern is rather to “teach [the girl] to be a human being among human beings” (page 263) instead of showering her with love. Keeping the other person's happiness in mind allows George and Lennie’s relationship to be better compared to the step-mother and the girls. Due to this, George and Lennie seem to have a better understanding of each. On the other hand, the step-mother and the girl share different priorities whereas George and Lennie share the same. Both George and Lennie knew they “got a future” (page 14) and their mindset was focused on one goal.
In the book The Glass Castle Jeannette Walls, the narrator displays her parent's parenting skills as authoritative. According to Cherry, Kendra. “Psychology: What They Are and Why They Matter.” The Four Styles of Parenting. she defines authoritative parents as being “... more nurturing and forgiving rather than punishment”.When Rex got upset about the Erma incident with the children “ I don't want to hear another word of this.

The last sentence of the first quote explains that her actual mother also loves her back. Unlike the other mother, her real mother actually loves Coraline like a real person in her actual family. A quote about family in the novel ‘Coraline’ would be “He had his back to her, but she knew, just on seeing him, that his eyes, when he turned around, would be her father’s kind grey eyes, and she crept over and she crept over and kissed her on the back of his balding
The latter quote is clear evidence that people should not leave it to others to inform them of how certain concepts in life work. Janie listened to her grandmother’s ideas about love and went into her first marriage enormously unguided. In the end she felt very disappointed with her marriage to Logan, but nonetheless, she was able to learn that marriage and love were not always synonymous. If Janie would have never experienced marriage herself, it is very possible that she would have remained ignorant to the fact that a marriage between two individuals does not result in love every time. People should learn from Janie’s experience about witnessing and living things for themselves instead of just trusting the opinions and beliefs of
She states, "You should know that my mother 's expressive command of English belies how much she actually understands" (Tan 1). This part of the narrative inserts that her mother knew what she was talking about even though she spoke improper English. She talks about how her friends could not understand her mother 's talking but Amy thought her mother was good at speaking English. Amy states, "Some say they understand none of it, as if she were speaking pure Chinese. But to me, my mother 's English is
Rhetorical Precis #4: “Mother Tongue” by Amy Tan Amy Tan’s purpose in her article “Mother Tongue” is to show the influence of her mother’s style of english. She also relates this to a more broad topic of the idea that there are many different types of english that people speak that are tailored to whoever they are speaking to. She begins this piece by stating plainly that she is not an english scholar. Instead of decreasing her credibility it actually increases it and paints this piece as a more personal set of observations rather than a bland overview of the entire language. By making it more personal it allows the reader to connect to the author because she seem like a normal person you might run into on the street rather than an isolated scholar.
Family affects how people see what kind of person you are from the outside view. Family is not always a positive situation; everyone has their own down faults. This point is shown in the story “Two Kinds” by Amy Tan. The situation in this story was all about family and the processes that make your culture better from the lessons that have happened or you have learned. In Two Kinds, there was this little girl named Ni Kan and her mother wanted her to be just like her.
