Alicia is in a situation where her mother has died, leaving her alone to cope with poverty, and the only way out is through education. The text says, “young and smart for the first time at the University. Two trains and a bus because she doesn't want to spend her whole life in a factory or behind a rolling pin” (Cisneros 31). Ever since Alicia's mother has passed, Alicia has been learning to cope with poverty and realized that the only way out of poverty is through education. Alicia values education so much that it causes her to take two trains and a bus a day, only to get to
It takes the form of a series of lessons; the point of the lessons, according to the mother, is to teach her daughter to behave and act properly” (Wellesley, pars. 1-2) .The daughter realizes that the mother commands a lot of her. Starting at the very beginning of the poem, throughout and at the end of the poem the daughter is demanded by the mother to perform tasks.”Wash the white clothes on Monday and put them on the stone heap” (Kincaid). The way the mother talks to her daughter we can automatically tell that the mother is in complete control of her daughter and is not going to have anything less of greatness from her daughter. The mother’s unwillingness to talk to her daughter calmly and nicely shows how much she wants her daughter to be a lady and how much control the mother has over the daughter.

The teacher, Ms. Price picks up a sweater and asks the class if anyone is missing a sweater. A student says that it's Rachel's, and the teacher gives her the sweater without even thinking. Rachel thinks and speaks in a way that is very reminiscent of an eleven year old.

Although, it seemed like a harmless activity my sister said that my niece came home asking “why do white people only want white friends”, and couldn’t explain why she asked her mom that, when my sister said, “Why would you say such a thing”? My sister took my niece to school the next day with the intentions of asking some of her own questions, and on her way to the principal’s office she saw a large recently posted collaged like mural in the middle of the hallway on display with images of white stick figures being on the good side of the wall that brown stick figures were building, images of white ppl kicking what was appeared to be Obama out of the white house, images of white people standing on black people with powerful stances, and flowers, and the globe, and video games, and everything else meaningful to their perception, evidently this legacy project wasn’t well thought out as it became more controversial as peoples’ attention got drawn to what was actually drawn on the mural. It took days for the principle to respond to the controversy behind the mural and when she did respond it was devastating that she said that her students were exercising their right to freedom of expression and

My parents wanted me to study in a girls’ school which is nearby my house. (I took only 10 minutes to walk to school.) During the time before examination, generally, I had to prepare myself by reading textbooks like the other children.

And both of them noted that they there were not many options to begin with. Different people with diverse background often repeated this sentiment in the first 2 episodes of the story.

Operant Conditioning Writing Assignment I decided to train my 15-year-old sister in order that she wakes up at 6:30 am every day of the week so that this way she gets early to school and I get early to college since I have to take her to school. Her original behavior is that she does not get up at 6:30 am by herself on the week and I have to wake her up. When I wake her up, she likes to listen to music at a high volume to get dressed and is very irritating for me to listen to music at a high volume in the morning. The desired version of the behavior is that she gets up at 6:30 am by herself every day of the week and gets ready by 7:20 am so we can both get early to school. Some of the consequences of my conditioning plan require explanation
