He desperately needs something to lighten the load of his troubled mind. So he generates comics, now more than ever. He draws them of his surroundings, of the people at school, and teaches. One day while in science class he proves the teacher wrong while they are learning about petrified wood, and the following resulted, “Which one of these pyrotechnic giants will explode first, the volcano, or Mr. Doge?” (70) When proving him wrong the teacher becomes bright red with anger because he is informed that Junior is correct about his statement. So instead of falling into the teachers anger, he draws a cartoon of him to lighten the mood.
Cathey’s “My own little secret” story, which effectively makes an appeal to pathos that creates a sympathetic image to readers. Wolverton explains that Mr. Cathey didn’t read at his appropriate level and that he was reading books that were at a “First Grade, Level 1, Ages 6-7.” Also, having to read quietly so that none of his teammates wouldn’t hear him reading aloud (Wolverton, 117). Wolverton goal was to make the readers have some type of sympathy for Mr. Cathey. This strategy of using pathos helps Wolverton to persuade and entertain his readers and also helps to strengthen his argument at the end. In the article there was a rhetorical question Mr. Joseph Luckey, the University of Memphis’s director of athletic academic services, wondered how many of those students to let in.
Inside the Tiny Shoes What would you do if you were inside the tiny shoes of a seven year old boy getting scolded by the man you looked up to the most? The short story “Home” by Anton Chekhov gives the audience the glimpse of both sides to the story. Yevgeny Petrovitch, a prosecutor and father to Seryozha, comes to realize that his son has been stealing his cigarettes and smoking them at a very young age. Disappointed and confused as what to say, he sits down and tries to talk to the boy, but is constantly reminded of his son’s age. Reading “Home” through a psychoanalytic lens reveals the frail boy named Seryozha to be a childish character, shown by his defense mechanism, psychosexual stage of development, and because of symbols shown.

Reading "Superman and Me" gave me conflicting feelings. Of course, the tale of a young boy striving to succeed in and environment where he is nearly required to fail is thrilling, yet it really makes you think of the environment itself. He was a young Indian child living on a reservation; however, he recognized that he was an intelligent person. Others around him tried to quiet him because Indian children were supposed to be dumb. Sherman Alexie wanted more out of life.Sherman Alexie used many different rhetorical devices throughout his story.

The most dangerous criminal may be the man gifted with reason, but with no morals.” From back then to today’s society, kids are failing because they lack those morals that they need to succeed. Some examples are responsibility, respect to elders and etc. Human nature is not an averaging of people’s behavior but rather is revealed as we cultivate excellence. Dr. King states, “The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true
Talk to one or two “If it doesn’t CHALLENGE you, it won’t CHANGE you.” In this story, you will see how Stanley has changed. Stanley changes from shy to bold because of how Sachar describes him in the beginning and the end. In the beginning of the novel, Stanley is a very shy kid. He doesn’t want to get embarrassed “When he doesn’t let the boys see him writing his letter.” (Sachar 74). I think this shows great text evidence because he scared to show the boys about his letter.
It is in the paragraph in which Doodle’s brother teaches Doodle to stand alone is essential, because it allows the reader to feel emotional connection towards Doodle and the author develops this situation as a major climatic book in the short story The Scarlet Ibis. Doodle is a young boy who is mentally disabled, resulting in him not able to stand on his own feet. His brother is embarrassed and ashamed of Doodle’s inability to stand, let alone walk, or play like the other boys. Therefore, he set out to teach him to walk, which was a difficult process because Doodle didn’t want to try. It was only until Doodle’s brother painted a picture of Doodle and him in the future where they are old men and Doodle isn’t able to walk and “this never failed to make him try again.” This picture is the turning point and the prime reason that Doodle tried to stand and was able to overcome his fear.
I think Ray Bradbury uses the quote “ sweet food of sweetly uttered knowledge” to show the readers a inner conflict with Beatty. Beatty obviously reads books because he can quote sir Philip Sidney, so he must know knowledge is power. Yet he keeps knowledge from the masses by burning books. This is the first indication that Beatty is pure evil. I think Ray Bradbury wanted to not only make Beatty represent the ideal firefighter in Fahrenheit 45, but also to have him be a symbol of the oppressive society that 's pure
