Segregation is a recurring theme in this particular book, and I find it very depressing and wrong. From the very beginning of the book, Tris mentions how the factions stay away from each other, even in school. During the beginning of chapter two, Tris talks about how the different faction students sit at different tables while waiting for their turn to take the aptitude test. She describes the Dauntless table they were shouting and playing a card game. The Erudite table was chatting about books and newspapers.
Timothy Snyder a Yale professor and author of “Why Laptops in Classrooms are Distracting America 's Future Workforce”, states his opinion on why laptops shouldn’t be allowed in the classroom. He feels that laptops aren’t being used for educational use, students are losing their focus and are being detached from humanity. Snyder has observed that when a professor walks into his or her lectures a class, instead of seeing an audience of students there’s nothing but backs of laptops. He also gives thanks to wireless internet for giving the student easy access to various internet outlets. Instead of being in tune with their studies, the class is surfing the internet for the latest gossip.

I swear the clock never ran slower than it did during my English class. It was the 7th grade: a new year with new teachers, and I was hoping that my course lineup would miraculously be different from previous years. I glanced over my class schedule, and I quickly apprehended nothing had changed in my course plan. My dreaded nemesis, English class, was scheduled right before sixth-period Art. Eventually, the time came, for the first English class of the year.
Each one of the characters represents the clique that they come from whether that be the jocks or the burnouts. All of the students are within high school range and look at each other as if there were not even from the same species.

Baseball Narrative Rough Draft I was so nervous for this morning’s competition. Today was the day that I had the chance to show to a judge what I had to offer into the heat of the KMEA Piano Kansas State Competition. The songs that I had practiced over from June to October were mere children’s play compared to others in the group who played pieces like Claire de Lune and the 12 Variations of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (no one in middle school with common sense would choose repertoire made for high schoolers). “Melody, make sure you go over the spots in your songs that you need to work on”, Mom said, shattering my thought process. “Okay, I’ll get to it in 10 minutes.” I look back at the mantle with the hard work and patience displayed along with the TV.
