He pushed himself back, drew up his knees, embraced them, looked over to George to see whether he had it just right. He pulled his hat down a little more over his eyes, the way George's hat was.” From this, we learn that there’s something off about Lennie. He reminds us of children playing the game of copying their parents because they want to be just like them one day. Just like a child, Lennie can be very stubborn. For example, he asks George to tell him a
He states that he could imagine how, “…some dirty kid would tell them-all cockeyed, naturally, what it meant, and how they’d all think about it and maybe even worry about it for a couple of days.” (201). The various symbols reveal Holden’s true identity, one of a compassionate young man worried about the well being of
When the tone of the novel became gloomy, Steven managed to crack jokes to lift the spirit of the story. Steven uses the method quite often which makes him a likable character. On page 122, when he is having a meeting with his teachers about his slipping grades, he thinks a funny comment about Mr. Watras. He does this, despite the fact that he was about to tell them about Jeffrey's cancer. He thinks: “Hey, Mr. W. - where is all your ‘dude’ and ‘cat’ lingo?
The author remembers the image of the “furnace closet” where only the worst boys were put and how “the warmth, the gloom, the smell/of sweeping compound clinging to the broom/soothed” (Kenyon, 13, 16-18). She invokes the five sense to give the readers an idea of what the closest was like. It adds to her stance of how the situation leaves her “blinking/ and changed” because it provides the reader with details about the closest (Kenyon, 24-25). This adds the the overall theme that school impacts ones childhood. It tell students how to act and if one does not follow directions one gets punished.
“Atticus said that Jem should be delighted to show me where my room was” (Lee 15). The author’s purpose is to show that Jem is a caring young boy and is really helpful to his father. Jem is willing to take his sister Scout to school and show her around. In chapter 2, it states “Don’t worry, Scout, “Jem comforted me” (Lee 18). This example implies that Jem helps and tries to comfort his sister when she is feeling down or mad.
A professor described how we two year old kid always likes to jump from crazy places and try to land as “funny” as possible. Her question was why don’t we ever hear of young children tearing their ACLs. DiStefano explained that due to their age, their tissues are a lot more resistant. DiStefano ended the lecture by emphasizing that it is crucial for children to get exposure to different types of sports and physical activity. Overall, I enjoyed the lecture and found it interesting and
This information was helpful as it made easier to distance these characters from each other as in terms of personality, body language and accents. Another strategy which I used to expand my knowledge and understand anorexia is by watching documentaries about it. I watched a particular online documentary called “boy living a girl’s world” The documentary dealt with a teenage boy having anorexia talking about where he stayed to recover and how his parents found out about his anorexia. I also watched psychiatrist’s repose on anorexic males and how they them get through anorexia. I made some key notes about the way they spoke, body language and their posture which has helped me adapt my character by looking how doctors communicate with patients which helped me convey to the audience I am demonstrating the role of a psychiatrist as I would have to convey a role of perfectionists who is friendly and keen to help others and my voice will have to be clam and friendly tone to ease Todd’s nerves in scene 5 part 2 and throughout this scene I learnt that my character is trying to help Todd and found what is wrong
Wonder, by R.J Palacio, is a heartwarming story of August, a kid with facial deformities, and how he copes with life and the challenges he faces in his new school. Even though the whole premise of the book infers how no matter what, you should be proud of who you are, masks are definitely a recurring object in the book. In the book Wonder, masks are a very important aspect in the story because they display difference, how people hide their true self, and why people are meant to break free of discrimination. First off, masks are important because they hide people’s, in this case August’s, true self. No matter how funny a mask can be, they are always used for only one true reason; to hide your face or true form.
However, students with this learning style are sometimes called “fidgety, problematic, antsy or hyper, merely because their bodies need to be in action in order to learn”, which can cause a discomfort for some teachers who prefer having more calm and silent classes, or produce a lack of concentration for students who need quieter surrounding (Roell, 2017). In addition, many benefits of gearing the classroom towards kinaesthetic learners is that it is easy to include components of other learning styles within a kinaesthetic lesson - even learners that prefer other styles will enjoy interactive lessons and activities (Roell, 2017). Finally, implementing structured kinaesthetic activities on a regular basis makes teaching easier because there are often fewer discipline issues, time goes by faster, and students are actively participating throughout a lesson (Roell, 2017). Some examples of kinaesthetic learning activities include: Clapping or jumping up and down to break down syllables within a given word, conduct a play, role-play, reader 's theatre, or conduct a scavenger hunt in which students actively look for some answers. Even writing, note taking, summarizing, highlighting, or fill-in-the-blanks types of tasks will help kinaesthetic learners to concentrate because they will move their
It wasn’t always easy but I was able to figure out a few tricks to help me along the way. Memorization has helped me profoundly; it has been a key factor in my education because of my eyesight. Oculocutaneous albinism is hard to live with but gets easier because you just adapt to your surroundings, it is not something you can just look at a list of things to do and you live by the list. Each case of albinism is different for each
