Summer Ball also includes literary devices, theme, and connections throughout the story. An example of simile was when Coach Powers compared Danny to a Soccer player while he was running. This was significant because Coach disliked Danny in a way and thought he should play soccer. An example of a metaphor is when the text said “This time danny ran like he was in the last leg of those olympic relays.” The author used this to express how fast Danny was running.
In the essay, “School’s out for Summer,” by Anna Quindlen, she writes about the prevalent hunger problem in the United States that’s amplified in the Summer months. Anna Quindlen uses many familiar rhetorical devices to efficiently get her point across to us, the reader, throughout the entire essay. Anna Quindlen effectively gets her message about child hunger in the United States across by using rhetorical devices and appealing to emotions. The main message of the essay is to inform the reader of the child hunger problem in the United States that spikes during summer months.
“ … and did you know that a little over 30 million kids participate in school lunch programs every day.” The author is appealing to the emotional aspect of his past and showing how children are being more respectful to adults. He is showing a part of his past where he was young and did not make the smartest decisions when having
“A group of big-city mayors released a study showing that in 2000, requests for food assistance from families increased almost 20 percent, more than at any time in the last decade. In Quindlen's essay “Schools Out for Summer” she addresses many of the food struggles happening not only in other places but right under our noses. During school months it's much less of a problem because of the students going to school and the food programs. So the question is how many kids during the summer are getting the necessary amount of food. “Fifteen million students get free or cut-rate lunches at school, and many get breakfast, too”.
The essay makes sure to explicate why hunger is somewhat unheard of in America. She explains that the parents of the hungry children “loath to talk” about how they struggle .She also gives detailed examples like how it is not typically the “homeless or out of work parents” that they see in food banks but the those who work minimum wage jobs and can't afford to feed their families off that salary. The essay describes how frustrating applying for government assistance can be like filling out twelve pages of forms or being turned down because of new policies.
Did you know that 1 in 5 U.S. kids don’t get the food they need every day? This negatively impacts kids’ health and development, but this can also negatively impact them academically as well as emotionally and socially. No Kid Hungry is an organization that is making a difference regarding this problem. No Kid Hungry was founded by Billy Shore and his sister Debbie Shore in 1984. Since then, No Kid Hungry has raised and invested more than $528 million in the fight against hunger, and has won the support of national leaders in business, government, health and education, sports, and entertainment.
This statement speaks nothing but the truth. It may be hard to believe that our first world high technology advanced country is dealing with this problem because it is not something we may not be accustomed or adapted to. But estimated by The Agriculture Department, twelve million children were hungry or at the risk of going hungry. The majority of children depend on their daily school meals to be what provides them with their daily needs of nutrition and something to fill that emptiness in their stomachs. But what happens when children hit summer break?
School’s Out for Summer Why is it that many families struggle with buying food and feeding their children? Is it because of how much money a person of that family is making? Author Anna Quindlen tries to prove a point explaining how many families suffer from hunger due to minimum wage and summer vacation. From the beginning, she explains how most children are left with so little food over the summer and are not able to eat as much as they could during school or over the summer lunch programs. This statement will be ineffective in persuading others reading this because some children and or adults are given the opportunity to eat more over the summer.
With more and more people becoming unemployed, people could no longer afford to care for their families. The cost for food raised, people couldn’t afford food, so little food was put on the table at home. Families now starved, and one in five children lacked adequate nutrition and were hungry. The only hope to eat for Families, was to wait on bread lines. These were lines of people waiting for food handouts from public agencies or charities.
I think that having a four day school week is a bad idea. I think that having a bad because having a job that won’t have a four day work week. I also think that having a 4 day school week is a bad idea is because the American School system is failing. There are some students that count on these lunches for food and having a four day school week causes them to not to be able to eat as much. I think that having a four day school week is a bad idea because the real life doesn’t work on a four day work week, it is still a five day work week.
I have many memories of school lunches, most of which were not high in nutritional value. In elementary school, students have options of a ‘hot lunch’ or a ‘cold lunch’. A typical school lunch in the United States does not compare to those served in other countries such as Brazil, France, Italy, South Korea, and Spain (just to name a few). As I am majoring in Elementary Education, one of my requirements is to do some work in a local elementary school. I work with a student in second grade, and I attend lunch with her.
Hunger is a serious problem throughout the world, but today I will be focusing on hunger in america. Just for reference, I don’t mean the time between breakfast and lunch. I mean people who don 't know where their next meal is coming from, or are starving. I will be delving into the problems that exist, systems set up to help people do, and what an average person can do.
Have you ever wondered if you could ever change the school lunches in the Public schools? Well you’re not the only one, many other people thought about changing the way you eat at lunch and started to change it. Some trials have failed but some have succeeded at the trail for their public school. But some administrators what it to come to all schools, for the fact that they are losing money because kids stopped eating lunches at school.
Also Hungry students can exhibit behavior problems; they may become irritable, rowdy or get lethargic. That is a reason is how being hungry can have an impact on a child’s mental health. Summer is a crucial time for students. In summer, children are at higher risk of both obesity and hunger because it’s harder for them to get nutritious, nonfattening foods the good news is that free summer meals, funded by the U.S department of Agriculture, are available to children at thousands of location across the United States.
To begin with, the taste alone of school lunches is beyond unsatisfactory. The meals provided by public schools are not appetizing. There exists a tangible disconnect between the enticing, nutritious meals advertised on the school board’s menus and what the students actually receive—pathetic portions and lukewarm meals slapped onto a tray. Children’s complaints about school lunches are often seen as trite. However, while common, they are not any less accurate.
