It is as if some kids are scared that their skill won’t matter.For example in the article Minds made up before tryouts it says “Regardless of when tryouts are, it seems like coaches already have their minds made up by the summer, if they have summer camps or if they coach a travel team” (smith para 2). As you may know sports teams may have a summer program that kids can get involved, in which the coaches may pick kids to make the team not by their skill but by their personality. Also in Sports tryouts should be fair for all students it says “There were plenty of boys trying out for the team and several that were cut so these ineligible and injured boys could have their spots. How is any of this fair? This is why kids get discouraged and stop playing or trying to play sports” (John's para 4).

The first example of this quality is when Tubman is when she plans the day of the week to to increase the chance of success. A piece of evidence that shows this quality is, "Unfortunately, the discovery was almost always made on a Sunday. Thus a whole day was lost before the machinery of pursuit could be set in motion," (Petry 1).

In Ray Bradbury’s “All Summer in a Day,” the past seven years have been rainy; therefore, the students read about the sun to find out the peculiar mishappenings. Similarly, in the story “The Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell, Rainsford pushes himself to solve the mystery of the unknown rainforest. Both authors create the tone and mood of the story to represent how one should always strive for what they believe.
Scott Fitzgerald uses the seasons as an important role in The Great Gatsby. Understanding the meaning behind the seasons and how they are connected to the characters and the events in the story helps build a stronger context of the novel. The summer allows Nick and Gatsby to believe that they have a new beginning for a certain part of their lives. It also brings intensity on the hottest day to show why the dramatic events occurred the way that they did. Examples of this are Gatsby’s increased love and hope for Daisy and the powerful conflict between Gatsby and Tom.
Lauren Tarshis and Ray Bradbury used different approaches to convey a similar theme in the drama “The Day Mrs.Parks was Arrested “and the short story “All in Summer in a Day”. “The Day Mrs.Parks was arrested”and “All Summer in a Day” has many differences also.

One reason why there shouldn’t be year round school is because kids need a break from school. Summer gives kids a break off their brains. A longer summer would let kids do what they want and time on there own. Lots of kids have to get up really early for school and so when it’s summer they can sleep in and make up for all of the time that they had to get up early for. They can’t make up all the days of getting up early in 2-3 weeks
