As the play unravels, the behaviour of hector seems to become more erratic and the comical side of him seems to be slowly drifting away. Although this is happening I still feel that the unique style that hector brings in terms of teaching is giving the boys a real edge for their university hopes all the boys have built up, through the way the Headmaster drums university into them. The character of Hector is introduced to us by Bennett from the very start of the play and the initial introduction is very bold and makes us a little wary that his introduction isn’t what we would have expected of a teacher. Hector turns up to school on his motorbike which I think is done by Bennett just to show he doesn’t like being the same as everyone else and has his own style. At this stage I think that nothing would be frowned upon but as he wears his leathers and has the boys waiting to undress him, I can understand why he is seen as disturbing by others.
For example, the conch works similar to a school bell because it signals for students to get to the next classes as a reminder. This shows how the conch helps keep the society running smoothly. Plus, the fact that the boys are stuck on an island symbolizes isolation from the civilization, giving an opportunity that allows these boys to do whatever that is wanted. In the story, the Lord of the Flies replies, “We are going to have fun on this island!” (159). Therefore, the boys are capable of activities that are chosen
(Moller 545) The author lamented about the competitive nature of the students saying “everyone wanted that spot at the top of the class, and social life was rife with competition.” (Moller 545) Moller then tells of the time he snorted Ritalin given to him by a friend and that it helped him wake up and become more focused on his homework. (Moller 546) The author uses this story to show that he did what he thought was required to keep up with the other students, even though he knew it was against the rules as well as illegal. The author equates this to sports in that the negative consequence of getting caught taking drugs wasn’t as bad as failing a test, in much the same way that athletes take performance enhancers to “keep up with the Joneses” so to speak. Though I agree with William Moller that athlete’s take PED’s to keep up with each other and that we place athletes on a pedestal that we shouldn’t, I disagree that it is the public’s fault because we hold them in high esteem. For me it boils down to
Close up shot of the old boys’ photographs have been used and made to be slowing zooming out, to make them seem like they wants to say pass on important legacy and are agreeing with Keating’s innovative idea. The director has used a planning shot to capture the boys’ reactions to Keating philosophy. Some boys like Neil Perry (Robert Sean Lombard) and Charlie Dalton (Gale Hansen) look excited. While the some other boys like Todd Anderson (Ethan Hawke) are confused and little hesitant to the idea. These shots showed us how the boys felt toward the new thought and the effect the idea was having on them as this was so different and unusual to the traditional values they had been taught before at Welton, also they were surprised that Keating made this suggestion as it was unlikely thing a teacher would say.
He was the kind of teacher that never made you feel guilty about missing an assignment, but something about the way he asked for it made you feel guilty for not doing it - not because it was a loss in points for your grade, but because you felt like you’d let down your teacher. Class always started with an idea from the text we were reading. Mr. Cohen would come in and write the word “symbols” at the top of the white board in a fading blue color. We were beginning a discussion on The Allegory of the Cave by Plato when Mr. Cohen turned around and asked the class, “What do you think were the most prominent symbols in this story?” Some very basic answers were shouted out, “the cave”, “shadows”, “fire”, “sunlight”, “water”…that last word sent him flying. He began to work off of it, “Focus on the water.
Even though, they play a huge role in junior’s life the real main question here is Rowdy & Gordy a better friend for junior. I pick Gordy as a better friend for Junior because he has taught junior so many valuable lessons of life and so does Rowdy. This makes senses because Gordy can show junior things that rowdy has never showed him before other than violence and negativity. Gordy taught junior how to actually read the right way and look up words on the Dictionary. Also to comprehend what he’s reading.
Making Fun of an Audience In Mark Twain’s “Advice to Youth” satire is integrated into the text to make fun of an audience, even though he gives “…Didactic, instructive,” or “Good advice” (291). He criticizes the standard relationship form between children and their parents, specifically attacking the lack of humor between children and parents. When parents take things way too seriously when something “bad” happens which is not the best approach to solve minor problems that arise. Twain is skilled in many different art forms of language. He advises the reader to learn the same skill sets early on in life so that they can take advantage of the opportunities in front of them.
How can you complain about something you yourself do? Hypocritical much! I would also like to point out the fact that Mr. Goldstein is a student while Choy is a professor, if the professors not complaining then why should he. Also, another rebuttal Goldstein brings up is that the taping of the keys is a distraction. “The tapping noise is also distracting, and I think, that as a member of the class, I have a right to be protected from such distractions” (Goldstein, 271).
To begin with, analyzing Hamlet's motivations, or lack of motivations, ends up being pretty easy for students in the long run because of the relevance of Hamlet's struggle as the dutiful son. Conflicts with a mother, stepfather, or a girlfriend, on the surface level, most students can relate. Then, as we delve deeper, they are usually quite empathetic with Hamlet's notable inaction and his frustration with himself over it, a quality of his that many adult readers have trouble understanding or empathizing with. Also, everything is connected in Hamlet, including the welfare of the royal family and the health of the state as a whole. The play’s early scenes explore the sense of anxiety and dread that surrounds the transfer of power from one ruler to the next.
When we are seeing films, we are enjoying life at the same time. The Dead Poets society is different from the American films we are farmilar with. It depicts a moving story which centers on the conflicts between several schoolboys led by their teacher of Literature, Mr Kidding and the authority of the school. Mr. Kidding tries his every means, most of which are strange, unusual but practical and effective, to inspire his students to make out what on
