Element 1 Quote 2: Ellen Raskin created settings, in the book, by using very descriptive words. For instance, The Westing Game explains how the Wexler apartment looks. “Two walls of the living room were floor-to-ceiling glass. ... “It’s a bedroom, of course,” his wife replied. “It looks like a closet.” “Oh, Jake, this apartment is perfect for us, just perfect,” Grace Wexler argued in a whining coo.
In the book Shattering Glass by Gail Giles Rob’s social class influences what others think of him. Everyone thinks of him as the best of the best and everyone does what he does. For example, when Rob walks into school on the first day, the author writes “When he walked into a room, there was a jolt and all eyes turned his way”(2). Bases on the fact that the author used the word “jolt”, it is reasonable to assume that because of his popularity everyone looks at him whenever he walks into any room. Another piece of evidence that shows his popularity is when the students were in the cafeteria, Giles writes “His blue eyes and big smile hypnotized one and all”(3).
I look around my room, on one corner of my desk, there is a framed picture of a smiling Asian family that is hidden behind textbooks and the Scarlet Letter. SAT material is scattered on the floor. On the wall is Chinese brush painting and a poster of The Eagles. Am I Chinese or American? I have known frustrating moments of miscommunication, the nostalgia for a place where fitting in was never an issue, and the tug between the Chinese and American tables in the cafeteria.
Each kid brings their own piece to the building and contributes to its homey feel. The posters on the wall, the pictures of family, and all of the stuff strewn around all show how incredibly special this place is. In the common room boys are preparing for class on their computers, tossing a football, chatting, and shredding on the longboard through an obstacle course constructed by couches placed throughout the room. The laughter and laid back attitude in this room is contagious. It is impossible to walk into this room and not at least crack a smile as you say hi to your friends and see what is going on in the dorm.
Bothe of the labs had safety evaluation plan on the door. The majority of the language classes in West and East building had 5 or 6 groups of working stations and chairs with a collaborative setting option for students. There was an evidence of functional electronics like classroom projectors. In addition, classes had clean space for students to move and work. Regarding to the safety issue, all classes had an evaluation plan on the door.
I sighed and stacked the book back with the others. Resting my head on my elbows, I stare at the colorful sign that reads, “Green Acres Homework Center”. The Green Acres Homework Center consists of two housing buildings merged together. To a stranger, the building looked like any other, but the real magic was inside.
A “Beep” followed by a blinking red is only the beginning. Soon my stomach begins to churn as I feel the monster wake up and begin its journey. The elevator slowly creeps up three floors before stopping. The doors seem to open like a movie scene and reveal the boy, with hazel eyes that have an ever so hint of green. His name is not known, but I try to think it is a word that rolls off the tongue so easily like Sebastian or Benjamin.
The store looked real old. I like old toy stores because they seemed more interesting. Andy and I walked into the store and an old man had his feet kicked up on his desk scolding. We saw a dark room in the back and walked towards it. I saw a blue can, tagged Monster Blood.
water was still at the back of my tongue and it was the longest five rolls ever to get off my King-sized bed. I stumbled to the bathroom and turned on the hot water; I asked myself, “Why didn’t I just go into the family’s restaurant business? I’d surely have a 9 to 5 job that doesn’t stress me.” Then again, I loved the thrill journalism and reporting on crime was my passion. It was something my father thought was rather morbid. However, had he ever met my editor John, he would think that the fella’s romanticism with murders and its link to the supernatural, was a case of psychosis.
The building itself was surrounded by other not-too-old but not-too-new structures. From where I was, I could see a deli, a candy shop, a gas station, a grocery store, and some other stores. I faced the hotel again, and started walking up the marble steps to the entrance. Upon walking in, I realized this hotel was one of those buildings that looks way different on the inside than it does on the outside. I was greeted with a grand, carpeted staircase with gold lined handrails.
resident Gregory King and his entourage strolled into the presidential quarters, which to Greg’s surprise appeared untouched since he’d left, except for Stone’s bolted cages covering the windows. The lamps fizzed as they were lit. “Oh, look at all this dust,” Lass said, removing her helmet and shaking out a mane of wavy blonde hair. “They could have at least kept it clean.” Lawrence, his armor still in place, surveyed the door. “I can move the locks back to our side if someone can find me a wrench and bit set.” He rattled the bolts, nodding.

The classroom of Billy Giblin was located in the older section of the school. As I walked into his classroom, I noticed Mr. Giblin had a very relaxed demeanor to him. His hair was quite long, and the sleeves on his shirt were rolled to his elbows. When he talked to his students, whether in private or in front of the
Plopping her bag and herself down on the floor, she looked around the room. It was painted sky blue, with a border of cats (what else?) stickered around the top. No matter how often Hallie walked into Cat’s room, she was always amazed at the neatness of it. Everything was meticulously placed into the proper drawer, shelf, or cubby.
