Conflict is one of the most basic elements of natural human behavior. Conflict, from a literary standpoint, serves its purpose to create tension within a story, which as a result keeps readers interested and engaged. Whether the conflict is with another person, with nature, or within yourself, it is ubiquitous and unavoidable. In Stephen Crane’s The Red Badge of Courage, the struggles that Henry faces help to give depth and meaning to the story, as well as develop Henry as a character. In the novel, conflict is used to show the reality of war and the effect it can have on a person.
I knew a girl in high school that had a learning disability, so she was put into separate classes with other students that had similar issues. She was segregated from the rest of the school, and the only time she really got to interact with anyone outside of her specialized classes was at lunch or in the art classes she’d taken. I remember her despising the school because no one seemed to understand that just because she struggled to keep up with the rest of her classmates, didn’t mean that she was stupid. She knew exactly what people thought of her, that they pitied her, and she felt really isolated as a result. Everyone at my school was careful to be nice to all of the disabled students, but I think that in some cases, the separation from their peers did more harm than good for these special needs students.
When the speaker talks about things that are similar to public schooling, she talks about them in a way that makes it seem as if is a bit different after all. For example, “Mrs. Yollstrom (our mother) put her in detention, and we both were unable to leave the kitchen table all day long,” in regular school, that doesn’t happen often, but the reader is lead to believe that this is the way homeschooling is. She also talks about the prom in an obscure way, she writes, “Joylene cried quietly for a while which was kind of like the prom anyway,” and while that is not the entire truth, the writer makes it seem as if this is normal for her. The passage speaks of a lonely experience in homeschooling, by speaking of the seclusion of their home compared to regular school, and talking about how her mother, uncle, and sister are the only people she interacts with on a school day.The speaker in Carlson’s piece “Homeschool Insider: The Fighting Pterodactyls” feels lonely after transferring from public school to homeschooling with her

Sometimes, to make me laugh, or out of her despair, she would imitate happenings or types at school”. The lack of spatial description is a consequence of the redundancy of actions and behaviors of the family. Doing the ironing is so much recurring during the mother’s whole life that even her daughter points out: “Aren’t you ever going to finish the ironing, Mother?” The agonizing routine reveals the hard times during World War II, years in which there were no feelings but fear and depression. The characters of the story are stuck in their actions, even young people. When her mother suggests that she should go to school because of the midterms’ week, the girl “says quite lightly, “in a couple of years when we’ll all be atom-dead they won’t better a bit.”” They have far more sensibility because they are obliged of living their future as passive observers of bombs and destruction.
She worked 2 or 3 jobs. When Ben was in fifth grade, he was a horrible student, during spelling bees, he was always the first one out and he’ll fail every math question. He got his report card and he failed almost all subjects. So, his mother decided to teach them the timetables on the first day. Ben was disobedient and called his mother a mean mother so she composed an idea to not allow him to play any games until he learns the timetables.
I went to my original class after, the hallway was unusually quiet and not many people were even there. Classrooms were full; I think everyone was pretty scared about everything going on, especially because anyone could be accused. Once you’re accused you basically have to admit to it or else worse consequences will happen. The whole week had been crazy. I just can’t wait to get it over with.
Each morning at school I would run after my mom and spend every morning in the counsellor’s office. My brother who was five at the time would be woken up every night with me screaming and crying. My school and social life went downhill; I missed out on the essentials in Mathematics and English, which are still problematic for me. I had to go through this alone as my friendships were almost non-existent by
There are many incidents one met in life that change the whole concept of living. Similarly I had an incident which not only change my vision towards life but also to the words you speak and how much they hurt someone enough that you then regret of saying them. It was a very dull morning for me. On that day, I not only get late for my first lecture but I also had a fight with my mother. She was telling me to clean my room before I leave which was not less than a lecture for me in the early morning.
