The movie, The Breakfast Club, is about five wildly high school students who spent Saturday detention together. The principal of the school, Mr. Vernon, told them to write an essay about why they received a detention and "who they think they are." But rather than writing one, the teenagers coming from a dissimilar social group began to share their thoughts with each other throughout the day and understood that they are not as dissimilar as they initially assumed. Brian is portrayed as "The Brain" and he followed the stereotype of being a "nerd" because of his sensible clothing, good grades, and healthy nutritious lunch. Claire is seen as "The Princess" with the stereotype of a "prom queen" because of her stylish clothing and her popular standing in the school.
Every single sentence that shows in this story a conversation between a mother and her daughter. The mother is telling and giving advice to her daughter about the correct and incorrect ways to do everything, from house chores, to how to act in society, and how to take care men…etc. However, if we just read the first two or three lines of beginning, we kind of image that the mother is cruel to her daughter. She kept ordering her young girl to follow her instruction without fail. Fortunately, after reading throughout the story, we can see that the mother just wants her daughter to become a good and helpful woman.
Introductory Paragraph: General statement to introduce the topic and include brief summary of text: The transition years are something that you sit down with your family and friends, and look back on either in awe or embarrassment.But one thing individuals tend to forget is that all those embarrassing outfits, failures, and bad decisions, are the bedrock to the person you are today. "Tag Along" by Tom Ryan, is the journey of four very different teenagers; Paul, Candace, Roemi and Andrea, struggling to attend Junior Prom night while they coincidentally run into each other. Faced with personal challenges, and confusions about their place in the world, these characters learn to take control of their own decisions and grasp the concept of maturation. Thesis statement: In "Tag Along" by Tom Ryan, the author
He references “Many students have difficulty adjusting to life in dormitories” (Courter) to exhibit some of the issues this caused. Also, he adds, “two young men who missed class” to describe how this has taken place in his own life. By describing situations where this happens in real life extends this problem for more than just an essay. Lack of reading not only causes a person to be more likely to misspell a word in an essay, but it broadens to real life scenarios as well. The tone, evidence, and rhetorical mode of narration presented in the article support the author’s main argument that students who read less are more likely to interpret the words they hear incorrectly.
The movie “Smooth talk” has a related vision to human trafficking. The story introduces Connie, an ordinary, fifteen-year old, attractive teenager who seems to be very naïve. She is engrossed with her appearance and her mother scolds her for it and proceeds to tell her that she should be more like her older sister. Due to the constant scolding from her mother and praising towards her sister, Connie does not get along with them. The only thing she is thankful for is the fact that she is able to go out with friends and meet boys since her sister goes out also.
The Breakfast club uses timing of when characters start talking to add realism and authentication to the dialogue of the characters. This can be seen in the motivation for the characters to speak when they do, especially in the cases where people jump into conversations, are pushed to talking, and refuse to participate. Brian Johnson, characterized as the nerd of the group, has been stressed to his limits by his parent’s. He is a character that is the most book smart in the room but and this can be shown in how his dialogue is spoken. Throughout the movie he comments in on facts or details during scenes without being asked.
The book consists mainly of the same characters but more were added when Peter and Cole go to school. The next main difference is that Peter and Cole are friends.

There’s the jock, Andrew; the popular girl, Claire; the nerd, Brian; the rebel, Bender; and the odd girl, Allison. These five students all believe they have nothing in common with one another, but as time passes on they realize they have more in common than they think. The Breakfast Club is a timeless film that goes deep inside the mind of teenagers and destroys the stereotypes of typical high school students by showing there is much more to a person than their outward appearance may suggest. The best decision John Hugh’s made when writing The Breakfast Club was deciding to have the five characters represent the most common types of cliques that can be found in high school. The five characters each have a different personality and this gives viewers the opportunity to each have a character that they can relate to.
1. The movie I have selected for the identity analysis assignment will be the Breakfast Club (1986). The movie is about five teenagers who are from different groups in high school cliques; the popular girl (Claire), the loner (Allison), the athlete (Andrew), the nerd Brain) and the outsider (Bender). They spend the Saturday in detention together. As they spend the day together, they begin to realize their flaws and how much alike they are.
The breakfast club movie was about this group of five adolescents who had nothing in common who spends a Saturday detention together in their high school library. They were all stereotyped of high school cliques who poured their hearts out to each other and discover how they have a lot in common than they thought. The main characters of the breakfast club were; John bender ( the criminal), Allison Reynold (the basket case), Claire Standish ( the princess), Brian Johnson ( the brain), Andrew Clarke ( the jock) and principal Richard Vernon. In light of this movie, Brian was the brain, the nerd and the peace keeper. One would say he always follows the rules.
