The foreshadowing in the story shows there was a hard decision to make between the teachers, in order for Martha to get the jacket. An example of this in the text is, “ I was almost back at my classroom door when I heard voices raised in anger as if in some sort of argument. I stopped. I didn’t mean to eavesdrop, I just hesitated, not knowing what to do” (107). The arguing between the teachers shows that there is going to be an issue with her receiving the jacket.

“But she made a fool of me, don’t you see that? Do you know how humiliated I felt when I went to Mr.Bhat’s house to return all those gifts? Do you realize how much she shamed me? It was okay for her to do whatever she wanted, with no thought for her family, right?” (124-25). This argument, though irritates and angers Sripathi in the beginning slowly makes him realize his mistakes.
Heathcliff believes that by doing this, he will be able to make Isabella miserable which will in turn make Catherine and Edgar miserable. After being married to Heathcliff for a while, Isabella comes to the realization that her love for Heathcliff is only one sided and that he was only using her. She discusses with Nelly her hatred toward Heathcliff which demonstrates that his plan worked, “He says he has married me on purpose to obtain power over him; and he sha'n't obtain it - I'll die first! I just hope, I pray, that he may forget his diabolical prudence and kill me” (Brontë 127). Isabella’s unhappiness does not end up making Heathcliff’s situation better and overall he is still
The source of Myrtle and George Wilson’s problems is that they have different viewpoints on each other which lead to Myrtle’s dissatisfaction with him. George’s successful look and behaved manner made Myrtle have the incentive to marry him. She believed that George would be able to financially take care of her. When explaining why Myrtle married George, she states that she “‘married him because [she] thought he was a gentleman…[she] thought he knew something about breeding, but he wasn’t fit to lick [her] shoe’” (Fitzgerald 34). Though her speech, one can observe that Myrtle only cared about money and was dissatisfied with George as she says that George “‘wasn’t fit to lick [her] shoe.’” The figurative language present uncovers how she had such scorn and resentment to George, as he was not at her level..
The narrator was at times brutal to Doodle because of the embarrassment and shame that blinded him to Doodle’s limitations which led to the dire consequences that arose due to his thoughtless actions. His love for Doodle was overridden by his selfish pride and thus cruelty was born. In the story “The Scarlet Ibis” by James Hurst, the theme that “spiteful cruelty toward a loved one often stems from wounded pride” is revealed through the narrator and the cruelty he exhibited towards Doodle in moments of anger and
Mr.Das only can absolve her of her guilt.The theme of misunderstanding and perspective is further extended according to the behavior of the characters and the way they see others .Mrs.Das hates her husband’s job and sees him as a failure .In turns Mr.Das thinks that his job is important .Mr. Kapasi thinks that his job is a waste of his linguistic skills while Mr.Das sees it as a great responsibility.

Personally I think it is messed to do that, but who am I to judge? I have done it before. Because I got really mad at that one friend I used to be with every day. Sometimes, I wonder why people can be two-faced. People that are hypocritical make other people seem depressed about themselves.
The word “cold,” suggests that the betrayal “cold” or unfriendly actions against one another. The word “reflection,” suggests that whatever damage is done by one to another, the same is done to them by the other person. For example, Catherine betraying Heathcliff by refusing to marry him because she said that “it would degrade me to marry Heathcliff,” (Bronte 81), thus causing Heathcliff to run away and seek a fortune; when Heathcliff returned, he expressed to Catherine that she had hurt him, and hence Catherine feeling guilty for the state that she has put Heathcliff
Different teachers, directors, children, and families. Some Head Start REDI employees might only be in the class room for their paycheck while other teachers really want to provide an enriching learning experience for the child but, the parents aren’t continuing the practices at home. The researchers have no idea what is happening to the children when they leave to go home from the program.

The Good, the Bad, and the Back and Fourth: A literacy Narrative Her beady eyes challenged me from behind her wire-rimmed glasses, “I guess you just need to work on turning in homework.” This was the final straw. English was doomed to be my least favorite subject. At this time though I didn’t know I liked writing and reading, so I just got by. I understood its importance, but I knew there was only one pursuit in the world: STEM. Science, math, engineering, and technology were pushed onto us in middle school from day one.
