Many people grow to be intelligent by studying and learning so much in school. But even at a young age, Albert was an incredibly intellectual person in a logical sense. He may not have been able to walk until three years old, but in school, he was incredibly accelerated. “By the time he was 13, Albert was reading and understanding scientific material that many adults would have found impossible to follow” (Ireland 7). This shows that Albert Einstein is intelligent because it shows how gifted he was above all people.
Ponyboy vouches for his brother’s character stating that Darry “had been a real popular guy in school; he was captain of the football team and he had been voted Boy of the year”, but goes on to lament that at this point in the story he “didn’t have time between jobs to even think about college”(16). Given Darry’s accomplishments, it is clear that he would have been a fantastic student and would have made his parents proud. Coming from a working class background, he would very likely have been the first person in his family to go to college, serving a role model for his younger brothers. Despite his parent 's death, Darry could have forgone his responsibilities, since he is an adult and still attend college, leaving his brothers to survive on their own in foster care, or a boys’ home. However, he does not take this option and instead, Darry assumes
In one instance, Adam and Charles give their father a gift for his birthday, however their father appreciates Adams gift more. This allusion to the Bible recreates the hurt Cain felt when God rejected his gift, however just as Abel did, Adam sacrifices much of his time and money to get his father a gift. Although, Adam did sacrifice much of what he had for the gift, it was for the wrong reasons. This situation conveys that Adam values what his father thinks, but it does not lead to his happiness because it was done selfishly. As he grows older Adam joins the military, as his father wants him to, but he gives up what he wants for his future.
Elie wanted to give up on because of how bad his foot was hurting, but with his father by his side running through the thick snow with him made him not give up. His father was out of breath and running out of strength. Elie kept moving with him (Wiesel pg 82). Rabbi Eliahou 's son had left his father behind because he thought he was to weak to go on… Elie saw what he had did and lied to Rabbi Eliahou saying that he hasn’t seen his son. Elie said to himself that he wouldn’t do what Eliahou’s son did ( Wiesel pg 86-87).
I do admire him for everything he did to be happy. Americans tend to believe that Chris McCandless has been just plain crazy. I do agree with that because everything that he did never went well. McCandless was plain crazy because of his Alaskan journey made him realize how much he missed society, but at the same time he could not be in society because that reminded him of his past when he was with his family. at that time he just wanted to go away from society.
Werner has never wanted to work in the mines because he doesn’t want to end up like his dad. During the age of 15 his opportunity to get out from working in the mines had come, he was given a task in which he had passed and was able to get in Schulpforta. There Werner excels in his physics and is chosen by his professor, Dr. Hauptmann, to help create a radio tracking device for the German army. At school, he meets his only two friends: Fredrick, his bunk buddy, Frank Volkheimer, who is known to be a “Giant”. Although Werner was given the opportunity to go to school, he drastically started to change.
Okonkwo was raised by his father Unoka who never earned any titles. Unoka was a sensitive man who never relished at the thought of war, but found joy in playing his flute. Unoka did not have the greatest luck when it came to farming, this caused him to end up in a lot of debt that he couldn’t pay back. Unlike his father, Okonkwo had no problem with the idea of war. Okonkwo grew up resenting his father for not being stronger and more masculine.
Rudy showed “blessed are the meek” towards these people. Rudy’s family were some of the people who did not believe in him. When Rudy was sitting with his family by the television, he told them that he wanted to play for his family’s favourite football team, and his whole family laughed at him. Some of the most important people in Rudy’s life were also some of the least supportive people. When a child hears that someone so important to them believe that their dream will just be a dream, it is really hard for them.
Who, in comparison with his brother, has a whole different look then his brother, the story had said, “Donald was bony, grave, and obsessed with the fate of the soul”(364). Saying this, it completely adds to the fact that people couldn’t believe that these two men are brothers. As well as these two brothers looking different from one another the story also emphasizes that unlike his brother Pete, who was married and had kids, Donald is , “the younger brother, was still single”(364). This probably shows why Donald was such a carefree person because he doesn’t have any responsibilities to deal with as an adult, while his brother had many responsibilities to look over throughout his life. In addition, “He lived alone, painted houses when he found the work, and got deeper in debt to Pete when he didn’t” (364).
He is my hero because I was having some trouble understanding the material for statistics and he helped me understand it clearly. According to him, “I got here by doing my best earning good grades during my 2 final years in my high school classes and prepping for the SAT.” His definition of a hero is a person who is looked upon by others and being someone’s role model. He chose Eminem as his hero because his dad wasn’t always with him since he worked a lot and his mom was always
Mid class the principle came in who hated the idea about the rocket and declined Homer trying to talk to him. Homer’s teacher stuck up for him and the principle ended up listening. Homer wrote all over the black board explaining how it could not be the rockets fault. They ended up letting him go with his rocket and he quit the mine. His father was furious about the idea, he told Homer about how he is going to grow up and replace him and take care of the mine.
He learns that it’s not where you’re from, but what you do, that defines you. His friend and fellow “rocket boy” mentions, “‘[The judges of the science fair] won’t let you win…Not after you said you were from [Coalwood].’” Even though he was from the small mining town of Coalwood, he won at a national science fair, showing him that he was capable of great things. Sonny also becomes more aware of what is going on in the town, and senses the tension between the members of the coal mining union and members of the coal mining company. In addition, Sonny’s view of the coal mine changes. At the beginning of the book, he sees the mine just as part of the town and part of his life; as the book progresses, he realizes that the mine isn’t permanent as well as nothing is permanent.
For example, in the heading “Many students aren’t ready”, the author states “Some of them didn 't take enough math, some took the wrong math and some managed to pass the classes without learning the math”. The evidence explains that even though a student may pass a particular math course, they aren’t prepared to take college level math or even understand the concept of that math course. In the heading “Your child needs math every year” the author explains that just because some students took a higher level math in seventh or eighth grade and are able to “fulfill minimum admission requirements for all but the most selective colleges by the end of junior year” doesn’t mean they should take a break once they become a senior. Once they do take a break then taking college level math will be hard for
During my elementary school time, I had learned that this world is full of competition and you have to act out in order to stand a chance. I was quite intelligent in my classes, especially on the subject of mathematics. While I thought nothing of it,as I was bullied for that reason, my teachers saw it differently. Then, during the 4th grade, my teacher, Mr.Green, had asked me if I would like to join the school’s math field day team. At first, I wasn’t so sure, but after a few days, I was now a part of my school’s math field day team, along my twin brother, Anthony.
I disagree with the author that Chris McCandless was a crazy person, a sociopath, and an outcast, but even though he was very bright, he made some decisions. Before entering the wild Chris had just recently graduated from college with his degree. He was an intelligent student without any street smarts. Upon his departure, he left behind his sister whom he loved very much and his parents who he was upset with. That was a feeling he had especially about his father.
