But, after he goes back to home, he decides to go a school again. It means that his thought is changed through his process of constructing identity, and probably his idea towards identity is changed, too. There is one more evidence that shows his way of thinking becomes different from before. In the last chapter, he says, "I sort of miss everybody I told about" (214). When he was at the school, he kept his individual identity by trying to be different from others and he despised other people.

Coaches will understand the stress the students are under, that if they get a failing average they’ll temporarily be kicked off the team.

In this case, parody is being used to imitate testing. “Please put down your pencils and stare at the front of the room,” (The Simpsons) said the teacher in the episode when the kids were waiting for the security guards to come and collect the tests. This quote is spot on and important because teachers now a day are forced to teach by the institutions way of rules and whatnot. The subject is not only satirizing the teachers, but also the way teachers think about these tests.

If you are slacking in school or at home; they should correct you and tell you not to be like them and to excel and adjust your performance. Not only should they just talk to you, they should fix their personalities also. For example, maybe they are always late to work or they curse too much, though these are negligible traits, they demonstrate an misguides on the child ,who will start to think this behavior is acceptable and start to pick up on it.

Remembering embarrassing moments can in some ways teach you how to grow up so you never act that way again. Along with learning about yourself you learn about other people. Also in the poem Memory As A Hearing Aid the poem talks about a guy who grew up and slowly his hearing deteriorated. He opened with “Somewhere, someone is asking a question, and I stand squinting at the classroom with one hand cupped behind my ear, trying to figure out where that voice is coming from.” (Tony Hoagland).
(Curran, n.d., p. 6). The teacher will discuss further if this is the way he would want to be treated. Then, the teacher will implement specific praise. “Praise can be used to build positive relationships with students and assist in creating a supportive classroom environment” (Curran, n.d., p. 7).
If a teacher feels that a student is blocking a hallway, then he or she may aim, and fire away. As a result, students will be discouraged from stand stationary as it will be necessary for those offending students to bring extra clothes if they persist on being unmindful of other and creating massive traffic jams. Lastly, if all the other parts of my solution fail then we have no choice but to give the offenders a taste of their unacceptable behavior. Students who feel that they are being robbed of their time during passing periods will hold a day in which they will bring their friend and stand motionless at the busiest hallways of Las Cruces High School during passing periods and at the end of the school day.
In “here I stand”, Erica Goldson encourages change in the American schooling system. Erica points out a lot of flaws in the schooling system.

Gatto argues that the modern educational system needs to be reformed. In his initial paragraph, Gatto describes the boredom that students suffer from in the classroom. He accredits this boredom to the currrent educational system that enforces conformity and despises creativity and originality. Creativity and originality, which are the ways in which children express themselves and therefore entertain themselves, are not welcomed in this educational system. Gatto uses personal anecdotes and historical context to argue his points.
George Engelhardt’s article, “The Predicament of Gawain”, reflects on the predicaments that Sir Gawain was faced with and how Gawain handled these situations. The predicaments Gawain coped with were not made for knights of zero valor, temperance, and other codes of chivalry. Engelhardt proposes that the pentangle on Sir Gawain’s shield symbolizes Gawain’s reputation, which was without any mistake, and again the quandary he faced tested his reputation. The pentangle also represents the “complete man” which Gawain is thought to be by many people. Engelhart continues to talk about how the society, that Gawain was alive during, rooted from a race of men that loved conflict, “but it was Gawain who especially excelled in valor” (Engelhardt 219).
