In addition, Kelley uses oxymorons in Line 23, “enjoy the pitiful privilege of working all night long.” The use of oxymorons engages the audience in a puzzling way in order to emphasize her purpose that child labor is a serious matter, and takes a sarcastic tone by insinuating that working all night long is not a privilege -- it is a moral crime. Kelley also
This speech is being delivered in Philadelphia to a convention of vigorous women who are willing to fight for their desires. An emotional appear is used to target the nurturing side of each and every woman in attendance. The adults of the United States are sound asleep while the sweet, innocent children are slaving away in factories. Kelley even goes as far as to criticize the women for ignoring this fight while “the children make [their] shoes in the shoe factories; knit [their] stockings, [their] knitted underwear in the knitting factories.” The author intends to use this appeal to provoke the motherly instincts of the attendees to join her and her cause.
Because of the poor pay wages workers received, families were forced to send their children. These children were forced to work in unsafe factory conditions. Kelley emphasizes that “... several thousand little girls will be working in textile mills… in the deafening noise of the spinales and the looms spinning and weaving.” She established herself as an equal.
In the passage, Nancy Mairs, who has multiple sclerosis, calls herself “a cripple.” Mairs presents herself in the passage by using rhetorical features such as tone, word choice, and rhetorical structure. Among other vocabulary possibilities, she specifically choose cripple to be the word that describes her. Why she choose this word, she wasn’t really sure. Perhaps because the word cripple doesn't hide the truth from the outside: “ I have long since grown accustomed to them; and if they are vague, at least they hint at the truth.”
Child Labor Analysis Child Labor was one of Florence Kelley’s main topics at a speech she gave in Philadelphia during a convention of the National American Woman Suffrage Association. Kelley talks about all the horrors children were going through and the injustices they were suffering. She talks of the conditions children working in, the hours they were going in, and all in all, how wrong child labor was. Her purpose for this was to gain support of people to petition for the end of child labor. Kelley’s appeals to Ethos, Pathos and Logos through the use of great rhetoric is what allows her to achieve her purpose.
In addition, Kelley uses oxymorons in Line 23, “enjoy the pitiful privilege of working all night long.” The use of oxymorons engages the audience in a puzzling way in order to emphasize her purpose that child labor is a serious matter, and takes a sarcastic tone by insinuating that working all night long is not a privilege -- it is a moral crime.

Women were incredibly important primarily because of their ability to persuade their husbands to participate in the vigilantism behind the abductions. Religion was important, as it became a major justification during the trial for these abductions. All in all, Gordon is successful in highlighting the various issues by looking through the lens of the orphan abductions, and proves through this book that the women were not only the cause of the abductions, but also the reason why these Arizonan towns were filled with racial inequalities, class issues, and religious
This simile makes Lamott feel more relatable to the reader because this is a feeling that most inexperienced and discouraged writers go through. Saying things like “feel despair and worry settle on my chest like an x-ray apron” only connects the reader to Lamott even more (Lamott 469). Once the reader becomes engaged and forms a connection with what the writer is saying and feeling, continuing to read the essay is easy. At this point the reader wants to know what can be done to shake the feelings of “despair and worry” when it comes to
Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House develops a similar tone to Oleanna, drawing attention to the same issue that control over women can lead to corruption. The play commences with the characterization of Nora Helmer and Torvald Helmer. Nora is displayed throughout the majority of the play as a female subordinate who Torvald treats like a child. Despite this, it is also made clear from the very beginning that Nora has rebellious tendencies.
This foreshadowing helps the reader connect with the Baudelaires as it creates something I call the Dora effect, as the only thing you can do is scream and watch as the Baudelaire’s are met with troubles that you knew they would face. This is much like in the famous kids show Dora, where the main character foreshadows events and takes a ridiculously long amount of time revealing an answer to a question, causing the audience to often scream or simply just watch in awe as Dora reveals her answer. The show also brings me to my next point, because often when you are finished screaming astonishingly awful things at Dora, you are left feeling guilty and plainly regret everything you just said. This is much like in the Grim Grotto, where the author succeeds at making you feel guilty and inclines you to finish the story’s content to gain assurance that the children meet a safe fate. Although regretful to say, the foreshadowing the author placed in his book also contributes to me experiencing a high level of anger.
This female gender role is supported throughout Odessa’s community. Pepettes have a specific role to play, and that role is to support their football player in anything he needs to be successful on the field. It is mentioned that often times, intelligent females “dumb down” to fit within the Permian school culture. Academic expectations have encouraged deviance within the classroom for Permian football players. Boobie Miles is a good example of how corrupt the town’s educational program is.
The Outcome of Envy Bullying is one of our country 's most negative aspects; tearing down our students bit by bit, breaking down their self-esteem and tearing down their conscious. Mostly the outcome of envy. Betty Ann was a victim of cruel bullying, when she moved from her home in Cleveland, Ohio to the insecure town of Richmond, Virginia. She was divergent toward the other girls in the school, leaving behind unicorns and rainbows for the reality of humanity.
Florence Kelley, a 1900s reformer and advocate who worked to promote children’s rights and put an end to child labor in the United States, demonstrates appeals to logos and appeals to pathos in order to develop a passionate, powerful tone and hold the audience accountable/gain sympathy. Her organization of ideas, combined with diction that appeals to the emotions, create an influential speech that both flows logically and tugs on the heartstrings of the crowd. Initially, Kelley immediately draws her audience in, establishing the purpose of her speech and where she stands regarding the topic of child labor. She is well-organized and maintains a steady delivery of facts and statistics that help to further explain her point of view.
Also the practitioner would need to work in partnership with the parents at all times because the parents are the most important people in the child’s life and the parents of the children know their child better than you do. Also in a setting I attended before the practitioner and the mother of a chid liaised in order to put a sticker chart with rewards to help improve the child’s behaviour. The idea of the sticker chart came from B.F. Skinners theory which was positive and negative reinforcement: if children were rewarded for good behaviour then the behaviour is likely to continue. (Bruce T, Meggitt C, 2007). Communication would also be essential while planning for the children because if the child is involved with any other professional then the educational and milestone developments must be communicated between multi-agencies to ensure that everyone is aware of the stage the child is at in his/her learning.
