.Economic class is defined as “people having the same social, economic, or educational status”. Richard didn’t have the same Economic class as his pupils, he was the poorest. He was always hungry; eating his peers food and paste from the cloakroom. He experiences shame for the first time in his idiot’s seat, squirming and pocking other kids around. The external shame Richard feels is caused by his teacher, who makes barbarous comments about his poor school work assuming is due to stupidity; not knowing is due to his hunger.
Don 't you hate when teachers take something away from you because they think you are not paying attention? Well I do! In my school everyone is into slime but the teachers do not allow it because they think it is too messy and a distraction. Well, I think it can actually help! Slime can help you pay attention and it can also show your creativity and keep you off the couch.
The “Mondays” source shows a boy and maybe his brother going through trash to find anything that could be useful. One of the boys however is wearing a shirt that says “I Hate Mondays!” which is something many western people say because they have to go back to work or school. While Western people whine about Mondays because they're ungrateful, that could be the only piece of clothing that child has. 2) This source is meant to make anyone who is unappreciative or not aware of what they have feel bad. These kids conditions are a few of many that there is all around the world, yet nobody seems to care or even think about it.
To Kill a Mockingbird, a novel which teaches us many themes like empathy by always following right morals and doing what is right. Inside those life lessons the novel also teaches us something important. Readers see the power of an 8-year-old to defeat a mob, making them acknowledge what they are doing and “stand in the shoes of another”. We read that a total stranger who is isolated from society (Boo Radley) helps a pair of kids and ends up saving their lives. People do bad acts because of power, or maybe they don’t know better, or (most of the time) people choose bad because if they do what is right it isn’t going to benefit them.
1a. Explain why, according to Lavoie, sarcasm is not an effective tool for teachers. Sarcasm is not an effective tool because it creates a victim. What may seem like a small sarcastic remark to the teacher and other classmates is a much bigger deal to the child it was directed at. The teacher and other students will laugh and forget about the remark within a few minutes but it will stick with the learning disabled student for quite possibly the whole day.
I was so hurt when I had to present in front of the class. Students would make fun of me but what left a laceration on my heart, mind, and soul was when my teachers would say “you will never make it” and “you are retarded”. Teachers would exclude me from activities because they thought I wasn’t smart enough. Have you ever been lost and hurt at the same time? I was hurt and lost at the same time.
This made the student very embarrassed and caused the other students to laugh at him. I related this scene to chapter 11, Individual Behavior. Joe had a strong negative emotion towards students dressing like that in his school. He knew he had to make a point to the students for them to stop. I believe it could have been handled differently so the individual student would not have been embarrassed.
I was so bothered by the disease, war, hatred, racism, discrimination, misogyny, and ignorance of my lawmakers (you know all of the glorious things high schoolers like me think about on a regular basis). I was bothered that no one else around me was bothered by those things. I was bothered that people could sit in their little bubble of ignorance and have no empathy for people who were suffering or even for people they were directly abusing. I was bothered that I had been sitting around doing nothing, just like the people I was so quick to criticize. Like Bradburry says in Fahrenheit 451, “We need to be bothered once in awhile,” and I had been thoroughly
My dad leaving me and my mom has changed me into the person I am today because when I was a little younger I would never listen or even show respect to anyone. I was always so bad and I just cared about myself that was it even in school I was disrespectful to my teachers and I didn’t care. I would always get in trouble and talk back once he left I thought a lot about myself and I would tell myself that he left me and my mom because of me and because I was so bad and disrespectful and I hated myself I hated the person I turned into and I knew my mom did too. So I told myself that I was gonna change and for the better so I started listening in class,not talking back,showing respect to people,and being really nice to friends and family.
