The coming of age component of the story is dispersed throughout the story in many ways, this is shown by the author because through santiago’s life journey he learns lots that he otherwise would not have known. In real life we make many decisions that affect how we learn and the information that we end up learning. Some decisions turn out for the good and benefit us, but some put us in a bad state and end up wrecking us but still teaching an important lesson. Being human comes with having good times and bad time both of which we learn from, the good times ca lead to great success, and bad times to extreme failures, but alas we still learn and improve upon our actions. And that is what coming of age is
Moral Education You are capable of knowing the difference between right and wrong, “The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience” (105). Lessons on morality have a big impact on our everyday lives. We are constantly put into situations where there are good and bad choices. We must be able to pick the choice that would lead us down the better path, but sometimes we must experience opposition in order to learn. In Harper Lee’s, To kill a Mockingbird, through the lessons that Atticus gives to his children, Jem and Scout, we see that moral education is very important because it allows the characters to go through the process of trial and error which helps them fully develop and change for the better.
This establishes the viewpoints of the society. Personal knowledge, on the other hand, allows an individual to know and learn freely. Personal knowledge exists beyond the limits of shared knowledge. Personal knowledge allows individuals to either conform to societal thinking, or to believe against it. In both the bodies of knowledge, what is consistent is Belief.
This is why I choose to do most of my work outside of the classroom. With that being said, I understand the reasons for attendence and have the outmost respect for the rules. But as a personal note, I find that some courses can sometimes be less beneficial from being in the class because the professor might have an accent or an argument that confuses me more times than not. Another way I have improved my grades is by utilizing the members at the tutoring center. The goals that I have made for myself throughout the rest of the semester are to utilize my time better as well as to study for my tests and taking care of my priorities first hand.
The dress codes of certain schools do actually try to sufficiently prepare their students for what attire may be expected of them when they venture out into the world of work. After all, most of us adhere to a number of unwritten dress codes in our day to day life, even now that we’re out of school. However, these expectations often feel more like a mild inconvenience than a byproduct of our sexist and oppressive society, unlike the dress codes that are most often imposed on students. These rules are clearly reinforcing a message that teens are constantly fed outside of their school environment: sexism and the oversexualisation of women is alive and well, and our physical appearance outweighs our basic human right to an
I would not say writing English assignment is very hard for me, but I mean I make some mistakes. We wrote four paper assignments this quarter, two of them about the story we read in class, one from a story and outside material and one about English 101 class at itself which is this paper. We must submit the rough draft before the due date of the assignment, which helps us to have clarification from our instructor and from a classmate. I am always improving after each paper I wrote, because I follow up with the comment I received, edit my paper then make an appointment with my instructor before I submit my final draft. These comments make me feel confident in the next paper.
They were all chatting about what they were doing this weekend. My teacher took role and walked around the class talking for a while. He finally made his way up to the board and wrote the prompt. “How do you feel like you are different from others?” I felt surprised that my teacher had given such as an easy prompt. I could list a million ways I felt different from everyone at my school, from everyone in my
I think without the knowledge from this class I would not have done as well as I did on that paper. That is why I am grateful for this class because it helps me write papers for others classes and do well. In the end, Dual English Comp has caused me a lot of stress but it has also opened my mind up to writing a successful college paper. I learned new things from writing a thesis to the correct apostrophe positions, to how to cite things correctly. My high school English class never taught me any of the things I have learned in here, so now I can proudly say when I go off to college that I know how to write a college academic essay because of Dual English
My expectations coming into the course were high and remained high throughout the duration of the course. The essays I wrote in the class really challenged me to progress in my writing skills. The illustration essay really served as an example of what not to do when writing at a college level. My approach of the essay was really misunderstood and grammatically incorrect. I did not understand the purpose of the essay so I wrote about what I thought altering public space meant.
Having writing as my weakest point makes my room for improvement greater and more achievable. Experiences and challenges allow myself to feel more determined in achieving the same level of success in writing as in other subjects. I have had many writing experiences in the past years, especially at this school alone. The best writing that I remember producing was last semester in my Humanities class. We were supposed to write a compare and contrast essay on the movie The Shawshank Redemption and the book Just Mercy.
