ALL SUMMER IN A DAY. The story is about a class of school children on Venus, which in this story is a world of constant rainstorms, where the sun is only visible for two hours every seven years. One of the children, Margot, moved to Venus from Earth five years earlier, and she is the only one in her class to remember sunshine, since it shone regularly on earth. She describes the sun as "a penny", or "like a fire in the stove", and the other children, being too young to have ever seen it themselves, refuse to believe her accounting of it. Out of jealousy, she is bullied and ostracized by the other students and finally locked in a closet during the time the sun is due to come out.
The traditional calendar always has been the schedule for school since the 1800s. The traditional calendar is the 180 days system with a two month break for summer. It was not operated on the year round system back then, because children worked the fields of their farm in the summer. People believe that this traditional style should change because this is an outdated system (Year Round Education - attending school year round). Finally, in 1968, when the first school changed, they quickly reverted back because it caused disruption of families, little or no academic benefit, and saved no money (year-round school calendar home page).

A lot of parents in this modern decade are failing to responsibly teach their children good manner. In a newsletter called club news, outraged coach Sam argues with a frustrated and critical tone about toxic parents poisoning the club by not educating their children on basic sportsmanship. Sam establishes he’s audience by using hard evidence, He involves the audience in an emotionally and repetitive way by using 8 year old Emily as an example ‘She didn’t care that her team had lost. She didn’t care about her own performance. She didn’t care about the sledging by the other team.
'(page 206) Winston’s feelings towards Julia have a huge transition. Before knowing what kind of person Julia truly is, Winston assumes that she is just one of the other girls who always follow the orthodox path. Because of this, he hates her so much that if he ever has a chance he would kill her by throwing a cobblestone to her head. However, Julia is nothing like the other girl; instead of being orthodox, she has a very wild mind she is rebellious she hates the party as much as Winston does. These are all revealed by that piece of note she sent to Winston.
My ninth grade was pretty cool until the last week of school I let my mouth get the best of me and said some things that I really should’ve not said and because I did I earned the next semester at the alternative school. When school started back I was very sad because I had to go to the “bad” school with all the “bad” kids and I was very nervous. Once I got there it was pretty cool and I really enjoyed it because the classes were smaller and you got more one on one help. My grades went up and my mom decided that I should spend the rest of the year there, which really messed me up because they did not offer any elective classes only the basics . My eleventh grade year was also a disaster because of the struggle of passing my biology state test and I was really distracted and just wanted to go back to the alternative school but my mom and the principle would not send me back.
Nicolas Arreola Ms. Uwanawich English 2H Period 6 4 September 2012 The Dropout It was Sunday morning and summer had just begun, my parents decided to make a trip to Ranging Waters that day. The temperature was rising to its peek and I had never wanted to feel the cold wet water splash in my face so badly like today. It was around 9a.m when we left the house and headed to Ranging Waters. The trip was almost an hour but didn’t seem like an hour more like half. Well, once we had arrived there was literally no parking what’s so ever, but we were lucky enough to find a perfect parking and not walk that far.
He's so dreamy! I wish my mom would buy me that, but we don't ever have any money to spend on that kind of stuff!” my friend said this, “Well, you could always DOWNLOAD it off of the internet for free!” (she told me how to do it) after I got off the phone with her I couldn't wait to download my first batch of songs but, it didn't stop there. Growing up in my life has never been easy, we CONSTANTLY run out of Nutella, my curfew is only 8:30pm On school nights, and I have to take the trash out EVERY NIGHT. With that in mind, I thought swapping music online would give other repressed children an opportunity to see some positivity In their cruel lives. I thought it was the right thing to do.” Given the consequences Brianna LaHara faces, I believe the “Clean State Program” is a very reasonable program.
All summer in a day 1.) The authors purpose for writing this short story “All summer in a day” is to show the reader that sun is a really important thing in life and life wouldn’t be sustainable with out it. Like on planet Venus, there is no sun which life isn’t sustainable. “She knew they thought they remembered a warmness, like a blushing in the face, in the body, in the arms and legs and the trembling hands.” “But then they always awoke to the tatting drum, the endless shaking down of clear bead necklaces upon the roof, the walk, the gardens, the forest, and their dreams were gone.” These two examples that the author provided in this selection is to show how much those individuals living on Venus wanted the sun to appear more often rather than every seven years. 2.)
