The commercial then goes into grouping of different scenes throughout different seasons and events in Juan and Sarah 's lives. The scenes include Sarah and Juan playing in the snow, frolicking in the sun, and going to prom. Juan is again offered gum by Sarah during these occasions and is seen drawing on another wrapper as Sarah is sleeping elegantly on a picnic blanket. The commercial then takes a (very) temporary dark, dark turn as the two are arguing in a room full of boxes. This argument is saved when Sarah offers Juan a piece of Extra Gum.

Clarisse explains the children’s role in society.
Throughout the novel “To Kill a Mockingbird,” written by Harper Lee, the readers can see how Scout changes her view about Boo Radley. Because of their nosiness, Jem, Scout, and Dill try to drag Boo out his house and to the outside world.

The whole idea about the children making all these stories up contributes to the fact that one of the themes is childhood. Since they are children, they do not know how to describe it correctly, so they use their creativity to explain it to the best of their

In The Crucible, Martha Corey is accused of placing an imprecation on Mr. Walcott’s pigs, causing all of them to die. At award shows, celebrities receive panegyrics and trophies upon winning a category. My teacher’s nebulous explanation in class caused me to be confused on my homework.
I choose to view the video clip, Maggie Simpson in “The longest Daycare”. There are some entertaining pieces in the clip one being in the beginning when they test Maggie’s intelligence with the equipment manufactured by Often Wrong Technologies and going through the security check in the beginning.

The roles are switched in these stories and the children wield great power over the adults in terrifying ways.
