Ender, the potential leader, is put through seclusion at Battle School because the officers decide that they need to “isolate him enough that he remains creative”(Card 58).He is shown later on in the book to get very creative after being isolated because he is often alone and has so much time to himself. This creativity stems from the games he plays and the analyzation he does while alone which is why he has become so successful. The solitude does get to his head, though, which starts to frustrate him and this starts up issues with his teachers and his emotions. Ender’s isolation is beneficial in many ways, however, such as the hero always adapting to new people and settings, and finding new solutions to situations. Also, it does not let him make many friends which actually keeps him from being tainted or influenced by too many students.
When Han came to the school, he wasn't used to a class monitor bossing everyone around, and shortly after coming, he decided to tell the teacher about Om. To Han’s disappointment, the teacher did nothing but praise Om and commend him in keeping the classroom so orderly. Han knew that Om was just putting on a show for the teacher, but at that point Han figured it was time to give up. When Om impressed the teacher, Han just gave up and wasn't willing to endure and try again. If Han had kept trying, he probably would have gotten Om in trouble eventually.
One of the first acts of rebellion that Gogol preforms occurs right before he enters college. “In spite of his parents ' sanction he feels that he is overstepping them, correcting a mistake they’ve made” (101). Gogol makes his own decision to officially change his name to Nikhil. Ashima and Ashoke do not necessarily agree with this decision, but they let it slide since Gogol is old enough to make his own life choices. This action of Gogol 's represents Gogol distancing himself from his family and being introduced to independence.
He states he prefers not to lie, proving there is a chance he will listen to that side. When Huck realizes his deadbeat father is back in town looking for money, he tells his father, “I hain't got no money." "It's a lie. Judge Thatcher's got it. You got it.
The bible says that one should be slow to action and slow to speak because a person’s words can effect then indefinitely. Most are not proud of things that they have said because they are not able to bite their tongue when speaking to another person. Friendships, jobs, or other great opportunities can be lost as a result of a word or phrase not meant to be said. In A&P by John Updike the character of Sammy is a teenager working in a boring little story who has a day that changes his life because of things that he said, did, and considered. Although his actions, language, and thoughts are meant to be noble, they actually show the impulsive teenager he is.
Reuven notices that Danny is very different from whom he had expected him to be. As the son of Reb Saunders, Danny shows many signs of having an intellectual passion, however he admits that studying just the Talmud is not enough and that his school life is quite boring. He feels that the teachers are too afraid of his father to challenge him, thus, he reads many books as a replacement for experiencing the challenges and excitement that he could never achieve at school.

Prior to the novel, the same reoccurring theme of friendship seem to play an important role in
Franklin 's enthusiastic attitude is a great attribute she has that sets her apart from and makes her better than other athletes. Coaches are willing to continue training Franklin, and help her because of her positive approach through everything she does. For example, her coach "who began coaching Franklin with the Colorado Stars when she was 7" (John Meyer, Denver post article) has stuck with her for over a decade. He has done this because coaches love athletes who listen to them! He realizes that he will see results from the time and commitment he has put in with Missy.
What do you think a hero is? A hero is a man or woman who uses bravery in a very important or scary moment. Sammy, a man in the story, is not a hero. He is very judgemental, he quit his job because he wanted to talk to the girls, and he left his boss to be the cashier when he quit. A hero is not judgemental, he or she does not quit their job, and they do not disrespect anyone.
Meanwhile others complain about having to do hard work. Kids in school complain about having to do homework out side of class and not wanted to put in the effort but want a good grade. Another example would be like people not want to get up to get paper that was printed. Some hard work isn’t even hard work at all, maybe a kid tries to throw a bottle from 5 feet away and misses they don’t want to get out of there seat and get it. When others complain about hard work and some work thats not even hard at all, that makes America a snivelization.
Rudy’s teacher as well did not believe in him. When Rudy tried to get on the bus that was bringing the children to the Notre dame college, his teacher stopped him. This is because his grades were not good enough and he told Rudy that not everyone was meant to go to college. Teachers always give their best professional opinions for students which is why it was hard for Rudy to hear this. Although Rudy knew that his grades were not good, he was not ready to give up on his dream.
But to put things straight” (Golding 79). Throughout his speech other kids try to interrupt him and he stands his ground and tells them that he has the conch. Another thing that he did was after he finished he let other kids talk freely. Ralph makes a great leader but he does lack some qualities to be the best leader that the group could have. Jack however does not have the best communication
