Rhetorical Analysis of Remember the Titans In the movie Remember the Titans, Coach Boone states, that his players need to be unified together as a team, instead of being separated because of the color of their skin. He does this by using allusion, diction, and a rhetorical question. Boone uses a rhetorical question in line one when he states, “Anybody know what this place is?”
When we first encounter Gerry, he seems be quite narrow-minded. Yakin uses a verbal technique in the film by using a metaphor. We see this technique in the scene when Gerry sees the new black assistant coach Herman Boone in the head coaches office. Gerry then says, ‘I ain’t playing with those black animals’. The metaphor is meaning to call the new black players on the team ‘animals’.
In the film Remember the Titans, racial prejudice and stereotypes are evident throughout. At the start of the movie we are taken back to 1971 where we are introduced to the town of Alexandria in Virginia and the new high school that resides in it, as two schools recently combined to form one desegregated student body called T.C. Williams High School. Football is an immense part of this town and for the people residing there. Shortly into the film, head football Coach Bill Yoast, nominee for the Virginia High School Hall of Fame, is demoted to assistant football coach and the school board hires an African American man by the name of Herman Boone to take his place. This starts an uproar in the Alexandria community as desegregation hadn't been

Not all relationships are perfect. Some relationships will start with people not liking each other, but throughout the time it gets better. People will learn to get along and it may take a few minutes to a few years. In the movie Remember the Titans, that's how the relationships were. The teammates, the coaches, and the community all had a relationship problem in the movie.
In “Remember the Titans”, Coach Herman Boone, who is played by Denzel Washington, is the first black man that becomes the head coach of an all-American high school team. He was going to be part of the of one of the first mixed race school at T.C. Williams High School. At first, he is not seen as the right candidate for the head coaching position but nonetheless, he was given the head coach position and would be working alongside coach Yoast, the head coach who had won 15 season titles at T.C. Williams High School. Although Coach Boone was a black man, he was very qualified for the position and had won several titles in the state of North Carolina to prove his competency as a head coach. He had a tough and rigid personality that showed others he wasn’t scared of the head coaching challenge that he was going to be facing at the newly racially integrated school and community.
The Titans, a football team who had to face the adversity of having black and white people on the same football team together. The Titans had to persevere, but not only just persevere by themselves, they had to persevere as a team and as a unit, the Titans not only had to change how they think about other races, they had to befriend the other races and change their way of thinking. In order to become a unit they had to settle their differences and focus on what 's on the inside instead of the color of their skin. Persevering is a need in human quality, if people didn’t persevere, many inventions wouldn’t have been possible today. If perseverance wasn 't a thing everyone would just eventually give up and forget about what their goal or objective was.
Comparative Essay of the Maturation Process The Ear, the Eye, and the Arm by Nancy Farmer depicts three siblings whom leave their quiet, protected life as the children of General Matsika, a major general in the Zimbabwean army, to go on an exploration into unknown territory, more commonly known as “the city.” Unsurprisingly, the three naïve children are deceived by a clever, criminal group of individuals with some quite interesting names, Knife, Fork, and She Elephant. As you could guess, they are quite lovely individuals. Stealing children off the streets and forcing them to work in scum and pick trash while planning to sell them off is only one of the many bright qualities of these upstanding people.
In any facet of life, whether it is in a relationship, at work, or in school; teamwork plays a critical role in conflict resolution and inevitably success. William James once said, “A chain is no stronger than its weakest link, and life is after all a chain”, regardless of the fact that this notion may hold true for many circumstances in life, it especially holds true with respect to a sports team. From football, to basketball and even soccer, the might of a team working together determines the outcome of any given circumstance. In most cases, there will always be difficult team members, and for the sake of argument, such members are deemed the “weakest” link of a team. Carron, Bray, and Eys (2002) have studied the power that adequate cohesion
We as individuals deserve to be treated with respect, kindness, and non-judgmental attitudes. All individuals all deserve the same rights and privileges as well as acceptance, tolerance, and self-esteem. Last but not least, all individuals have their freedom of choice and decisions. I believe us as a nation, need to learn how to socialize more and learn from one another.
The movie Remember the Titans is a suspenseful, inspirational and thought-provoking movie directed by Boaz Yakin, and one of the most important characters is Julius Campbell, who at the start of the film is an antisocial, unchanging person who is prejudiced against whites, but changes into a friendly, sociable man after a series of events in the movie. Back in 1971 in Alexandria, Virginia, where the movie started, it wasn't unusual for black people to hate whites and whites to hate blacks. Like this, Julius was prejudiced against whites, and for this reason he was unenthusiastic to play or make friends with them. This statement is supported by what he says at the first Titans meeting “Didn't I tell you all them white boys weren't gonna play for no brother?” Proving that Julius was confident, that despite the whole situation of the merging schools, that there would be no change and they, including Julius, would not get along.
The group development in Remember the Titans is not an ordinary group development that is usually connected in today's society. Of Course, this movie is based on the 1970s and discrimination and racial equality is extremely different, but the theories played throughout the movie still hold upon today. Throughout the course of the movie, the community, school and football team of T.C. Williams definitely goes through and touches through stage two/ three of group development which is getting to know each other more. During camp, all-star player/all American, Gerry Bertier makes the whole team no matter the color, that he is the captain and makes the decisions on the team. Little does Gerry, know that Julius Campbell is a leader too, making
