There are news articles about teenagers lying to their parents, teachers, or coaches about their grades, life, or about someone else. Teenage girls think of how much trouble she can cause for somebody if she doesn’t like the person. A single lie could give somebody into deep trouble, such as a teacher for example. The teenager would lie about her assignments are completed and the teacher would reply about how the teenager never completed the assigned homework. The teenager goes to her parents or guardians and says she finished the assignments, but, she never finished or even touched the assignments.
Yet, she dislikes the meanings of her name, so she tries to find who she really is. According to the text, “At school they say my name funny as if the syllables were made of tin and hurt the roof of your mouth” (¶5). This illustrates how her name was addressed in a way that she hated and affected her opinion towards her name. This is significant because it connects to my personal experience of being bullied at school for my name that is viewed as strange by the bully. The author shares, “I would like to baptize myself under a new name, a name more like the real me, the one nobody sees” (¶5).
In The Book Thief there is a conflict between Liesel and the rest of the school. In the beginning of the book Liesel already creates problems but it was her reactions that made it worse for her.

A book with an internal conflict is The Bully because Darrel a boy that goes to high school is bullied by another boy named Tyray and his friends.
I guess that's what happens when you flunk out of school and have no education. I'm sure their parents are just as guilty for not knowing what their kids were doing; or knew it and didn't care.” The teacher goes on to add, “I'm almost to the point of wanting them all segregated on one side of town so they can hurt each other and leave the innocent people alone. Maybe the 50s and 60s were really on to something. Now, let the bashing of my true and honest opinion begin...GO!” The reaction to her opinion has been critical, with people taking to Twitter to express their disappointment, frustration, and worry over the teacher’s remarks.

Her harassment was very brutal and occurred so often that it just cannot be forgiven through a well worded essay and apology. I’m willing to bet that Tiffany was probably bullied often in school in the years that followed her fourth grade year. Bjorn and the student where relentless and didn’t allow for Tiffany to enjoy any aspect of school. When a teacher decided to post Tiffany’s art on a prize board at the end of the week as an act of encouragement Bjorn and the others used it as another source of hatred and reason to harass Tiffany. Not only did the students Harass Tiffany but Tiffany’s friend Sharon was also became a target of harassment.
She knows the drill. She is one of the geeks in her class, and she is about to get freaked. Kayley is clearly annoyed at the girls at the time as she states on line seven of paragraph ten, “Paintballs...You disappoint me, ladies.” She means that in the past geeks were pulled by the ankle and dunked in the river or tortured in some other way that was worse than paintballing. Lauren, clearly frightened, follows her. Moreover, on line nine of paragraph eleven, Kayley shouts, “Lauren, come on.
Another reason books are often challenged is because of offensive themes. Themes can range anywhere from honesty to kindness to loyalty. However, a major theme of Killing Mr. Griffin is peer pressure. In the beginning of the book Mark decides he wants to kidnap his teacher for making him fail the class twice. “I 'm taking the stupid course over again because I have to have an English credit to graduate, and that idiot Mr.Griffin keeps failing me.” (Duncan 17) At first nobody was on board with the plan, but eventually he convinces four of his classmates to partake in this dastardly deed.
The theme courage is evident in “Making Sarah Cry” because when the main character, Sarah, builds up enough courage to stand up to her bullies, she is even able to help one of her bullies by getting rid of his tormentors. The text quotes:”The funny faces that she made and the way she’d stomp her feet. Whenever they mocked the way she talked, or the stutter when she’d speak…” These bullies picked her apart and Sarah was able to build up the courage to stand up to her bullies. She even helped one of
In Grant Penrod’s Anti-Intellectualism: Why We Hate the Smart Kids, Penrod states his belief that we seemingly “hate” the brightest kids in school partially because of some of the most “noted dropouts” in today’s society. Additionally, Penrod claims that the perceived hatred of intelligence in a high school setting is causing actual emotional harm to the children who are labeled as the “nerds” or “geeks”- thus, the classic “smart kids.” If entering just about any of the several thousand high schools around the country, they will hear choruses of “Did you actually study?’, “Why would you even bother studying- the game was on last night”, “Of course I didn’t study; I had football practice” or dozens of similar taunting phrases can be heard constantly
After Jerry decides to not sell chocolates there seems to be a ripple effect of other students viewing him as a hero with kids slapping him on the butt and in the school that was a sign of respect. Then the chocolates become popular the whole rebellion he started had turned against him with the whole student body railing against him in hatred and disgust. “You think you’re better than we are?”(205 page Cormier) was used by a fellow student calling Jerry out in front of the class started a kind of fire with as spark and lit the kindling of disdain they had for him. By making his decision to be an individual the result is that it makes it hard to
A woman would be tethered to a stool and head would be submerged in water, if she argued with her husband. At school, the teacher would wallop audacious children who misbehaved. Pupils that conversed with each other during class had a stick shoved in their mouths. If scholars didn’t listen, they had to wear a dunce cap or a card with the words, “Idle Boy,” written on it. In colonial times, frequent whippings, wallopings, and whompings were handed liberally out to the gullible

Being prejudice is a really disrespectful. In To Kill A Mockingbird, the whole class judges the teacher just because she is not from where the kids are from. The teacher, Miss. Caroline, just told the students where Miss. Caroline is from and the students started judging without getting to know the teacher.
She didn’t know what to do. “And I suddenly had such a vivid flashback that I completely lost my train of thought.” She talked about a childhood experience with her brother Matt. I think she was trying to get the student into learning, but that got the student feel boring instead. The entire lesson, she couldn’t build connections with her students. At the end of the class, she saw her students were yawning and sleeping.
Then Atticus said "Try fighting with your head for a change." (lee 101) This example shows that Atticus doesn 't want Scout to get into anymore fights at school; instead he wants her to think about what she is doing first. Whenever Cecil Jacobs called Atticus a name Scout got mad and she was going to beat him up , but she remembered what Atticus said and she calmed down and walked away. More and more she is put to the test every day but she
