And that is just great. But so many other people would disagree so strongly with her sunny disposition, after being robbed, by fate, of the life they had worked so hard to make for themselves. Mairs says in her essay, “I am not a disease.” (213) but living with an invisible illness is consuming. It eats people alive. Invisible illnesses cannot be seen by someone who doesn't know what to look for.
Which possibly could have turned the entire case around she chose to stay quiet and comply with what everyone was telling her. Mayella was was just a poor girl who had never been to school a day in her life and suffered so much abuse from her father, she didn’t give herself the opportunity to be powerful. In a time of oppression and depression Mayella standing up would have been a monumental change but she never seized it and took advantage, she let everyone else take advantage of
"There 's more than one way to burn a book. And the world is full of matches" (Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451). Kids now days just can’t stand school and this may sound like the best deal ever because the governments wants the happiness of people, but what happens when there are no doctors because there is just no background info on it, what about coding and the apps that kids are always on. Fahrenheit 451 is a war-torn society because of the attitudes and the lack of care for anything which is where the future generations are heading. We wouldn’t have any background info to progress our race at the rate it has been going at would maybe even start
In “Raymond’s Run” the author was chasing two morals: Don’t judge a book by its cover and pursue your passion. The way the author conveyed the message don’t judge a book by its cover was through Raymond. He had a problem in his brain, and people thought of him as dumb and slow. He didn’t give up, and ran for the first time after seeing his sister run. He proved to everyone: Don’t judge a book by its cover.
Furthermore, the story “Looking for Rain God” written by Bessie Head reflects the belief in traditional practices, resulting in merciless death of two children. Based on these two stories, mankind followed their tradition practices and sacrificed other’s life to retrieve God’s blessing. This emphasizes that younger generation should not believe in traditional practices as some practices are illogical, irrational and will undermine social order as well as harmonious family relationships. Benefits of some of traditional practices over this world are lacking sense or sound, lucid reason as these benefits do not proven by any of the scientist in this world. People observes these old traditions, which have no sanction and were made just for the benefit of a section of society.
In the books of Hard Times and Jane Erie there are three analyst in both of the stories. Now the first analyst in both of these stories is going to be no creativity is allowed. Victoring schools are schools that use no creativity and these stories show it because everything is demanding and no creativity is allowed. In Hard Times it says that “In this life, we want nothing but facts, sir; nothing but Facts!” and in Jane Erie Charlotte says “Burns, I insist on your holding your head up: I will not have you before me in that attitude.” Now as you see they don’t want you to do what you want to do, you do what they say and straight forward. For creativity it’s bad in these stories but now the next thing about these stories is they have strict rules and stuff you have to do.
I found this interesting because I had zero clue about her nearly fatal battle with the disorder and because she did not belong to the skinny, teenage girl stereotype of bulimia. It turns out that my stereotype was like any other stereotype—hardly the truth. While researching the disorder and casually interviewing my mother,
They weren’t my family, that I knew... Gastly foster homes, I was desperately lonely and wanted my mum... There was no allowance of any contact at all, there was deliberate separation and I guess, stripping of identity...” Children of the ‘Stolen Generation’ were not properly informed on why they were being taken all of a sudden, they didn’t understand. For all they knew they were just normal children except for the difference that their skin was a different colour. They were confused as to why they did not call their care takers mum and dad, like other children. Other children redirected their confusion and anger into getting into trouble, as stated by Howard Edwards in his ‘Stolen Generation’ testimonial when reflecting on his own childhood and
Volunteer’s dilemma consists of a person having to volunteer to do something that will benefit everyone and it does not matter who that someone is. However, if no one volunteers than everybody is in trouble. As famously seen when nobody volunteered to call the police in the 1964 murder case of Catherine Genovese when 38 people either saw of knew what was happening to her, in this instance, nobody volunteered and the outcome was the death of a young woman (Poundstone pg. 201-203). One of the reasons why nobody called or helped is because they thought someone else was going to
Liesel never says sorry or shows any remorse failure to say sorry to Elsa is the greatest crime. Markus Zusak is trying to show us the humanity in everyone, Markus/death is trying to express his feelings towards Liesel, she is not a criminal but a little girl trying to belong. Markus describes Liesel as being unable to say sorry or apologise to people, possibly due to her being stuck in a new environment alone with no proper family. This same issue is also seen in another event. Rudy
“You will never pay me back-“ “But-“ “But what I am offering you instead is a job, because I feel bad for you, so tell me.. what are your qualifications?” Half-stunned, half-annoyed at his straightforwardness Katherine stuttered. Why was he doing this? He didn’t even need the money, to him the cost of her abortion was literally just pocket change! “I can’t do anything,” she whispered. “I was a dyslexic foster child that no one cared about, I was th-thrown out of the place I grew up in on my eighteenth birthday and my foster parents seemed relieved and-“ “Then I cannot help you,” Dr Wellington interrupted, as he threw a few coins onto the table to pay for his coffee.
A main focus in the book is Richards reading success. It mentions how happy he was when he finally was able to understand a specific concept. I think this book would do wonders for a student struggling in that area. Also you could use a Venn digram to compare the characters: Richard and Emily, Richard and Drake, Ms. Rooney and Mrs. Paris. The characters in the book are defined very well and the students would benefit from analyzing them.
