The most hated plot in America is the underdog’s demise- the empathetic pain of scrutiny, and the failure we all miss to escape. The scrawny, glasses-wearing outsider is often the underdog, the hero we all cheer for. The one who makes all the refinements in a society that is stagnant to change. And his most successful storytelling, or retelling, is that in the setting of high school. He walks awkwardly down the hall with his shoulders slightly hunched inward and mouth slightly ajar.
In the 1985 film, The Breakfast Club, five high school students must spend their Saturday together in detention. Each of the teens is in detention for a different reason. They are each very different. There is the Jock, the Princess, the Brain, the Basket Case, and the Criminal, though they must put aside their differences to survive their grueling eight hour detention with their psychotic and impulsive principal Mr. Vernon. During detention the students were supposed to write and essay, assigned by Mr. Vernon, in 1,000 words on who they “really” are.
Homework has been the bane of many a students existence for the past years, as countless think it’s unimportant. Restless nights of practicing equations and writing paragraphs are known by all children, especially within high school. Contrary to belief, homework benefits the average student so much more than people care to acknowledge. It conditions the minds of our children to think independently and become familiar with the knowledge they’ve gained. Grueling nights of completing page after page of homework only ready you for upcoming school work, much like in the words of Malcolm X, “The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.”
there are just somethings that I don 't understand.. When is it the right time to do certain things? … Who is the most important person that I should listen to? Also what is the most important activity.? Maybe if I post it online I might get some luck.
He was very important to me because I needed to copy his homework in the morning every day. Do you know why I was so panicking? Because I didn’t have time to copy Henry Carter’s home work that needed to be sent in the first period. I knew that it was not acceptable but almost every kid in my school did that kind of things but even worse than me.
So that was kind of how the daily routine went for all of elementary. Every day after school we sat down together and worked on the school work that would always be giving me trouble whether it was a spelling test or some math homework. Most conversations went like “Your brother Erik can do it just fine, why can't you?” or “Everyone else in class understands this just fine, so that means you aren’t trying enough.” Eventually things started to click it started slowly at first like “Wow Isaac you did ok on this spelling bee.”
She didn’t want her parents to worry, but they knew something was different they just didn’t know how bad. She felt like nobody was there for her, and she couldn’t handle it. Things really started to get bad she couldn’t even walk in the halls of school without stuff being yelled at her. Her goal was to make it to her car before she broke down in tears. This was everyday she was being bullied
They simply expected me to do well in school. In third grade, I was consistently scoring perfect on my spelling tests, however, once I scored a measly 3/5 and my parents spent a whole hour yelling at me, telling me that I had to stop playing video games and read more books. Everyday, I feel the pressure radiating from my parents. This is similar to the narrator’s situation, he’s being pressured

Advice To Youth was a speech given by Mark Twain in 1882. In Mark Twain's speech, he gives advice, but not in the traditional way which the older audience expects. Although the title is Advice to Youth, the speech seems more targeted towards adults and authorities; although it does still give the youth advice. Twain does this in a manner in which he shows that many adults give advice that they do not even follow. Mark Twain uses juvenal satire, exaggeration, and symbolism to effectively get his message across and strengthen his argument.
