This is shown most strongly when people form school start making racial and discriminative comments towards the Finch family. When Atticus hears of this he tells Scout to “keep those fists down” and “try fighting with your head for a change”. And so even when a student from her school shouts out “Scout’s a cow-ard” when she walks away from her first fight she thinks back “Atticus so rarely asked Jem and me to do something for him, I could take being called a coward for him”. Scout plays a very important role in the story line of To Kill a Mockingbird with her curiosity, courage and intelligence. She also in some ways symoblises a mockingbird, through her
Stearns Spring 2008 Great Depressions and the Middle Class: Experts, Collegiate Youth and Business Ideology, 1929-1941. By Mary C. McComb (New York: Routledge, 2006. viii plus 207 pp. $95.00). Languages of class and discourses about class are minefields through which historians take steps at some risk. This monograph by Mary C. McComb on how college youth and experts negotiate their class identity as "middle class" during the economic crises of the Great Depression enters this conceptual quagmire, but although she occasionally comes close to tripping a fuse, she emerges with some illuminating pathways.
0Julie Carvalho Professor Harrigan Theater and Social Justice 9/22/14 How I learned to thank my abuser? How I Learned To Drive by Paula Vogel is a story told in reverse, of a girl who was molested at a young age by her uncle, and how overtime her understanding of her own situation changed. By the end of the story Lil Bit, the narrator, is almost at the point of pitying her uncle, whereas most people would probably despise him. There are obvious connections, such as how both Doubt and How I Learned To Drive both focus on child molestation, and how they both contain a mother who doesn’t act to protect her child, but I feel the strongest connection is actually between this play and Sonny’s Blues. The sense of freedom that music gave to Sonny and how it gave him a sort of power over his drug addiction reminded me of the sense of freedom and control that Lil Bit felt while driving.
By the end of the evening, Lily calms down, the family works everything out and they move on. This scenario differs in insurmountable ways to the gathering Alexie describes in “Every Little Hurricane”. We begin with Victor retelling describing a fight between his two uncles, Adolph and Arnold. This is such a common occurrence that Victor has justified their behavior in his mind as love. Alexie writes, “He could see his uncles slugging each other with such force that they had to be in love.
These were the years after the World War II, when the baby boomers were the youth and demanded to have their own fashion styles and set their trends their way (Jadhav).” “The 60’s turned every preconceived idea on its head. As fashion zoomed into overdrive, everything whirred in reverse. The teenager, previously persona non grata, had opinions and pulling power. Make-up turned from haughty to baby looks. Models played gauche, boutiques and unisex made an entrance (Watson 14).” During this decade, the men’s fashion consisted of buffalo plaid shirts, tight- fitted shirts that would be worn with narrow labels and drain pipe pants, and the hipster pants came into style.
In the beginning of the book “A Child Called It” by Dave Pelzer, Dave and his mother has a positive and loving Delano 2 Relationship that every child wants to have with his mother.

Generation Y: What Sets Us Apart Jaime Webster WA#2: You’re Generation, a Cultural Statement ANT 101-001 9-23-12 Word Count: 798 (Bibliography not included) Generation Y, also sometimes referred to as the Millennials, the “Trophy Generation” and the Peter Pan Generation roughly includes those born from 1980-1998 (Loretto 2012:1) but there is much debate on what years are actually included. Having been born in 1986, I feel a strong connection with Generation Y and its general characteristics. Overall Generation Y is described and known for individualism, innovation, creativity, the ability to multi-task and the first generation to be able to embrace the widening impact of the information revolution (Kimmel 2012:369). As part of this huge generation, which is approximately three times larger than the previous generation, dubbed Generation X, we were the first children to grow up with computers in our homes, the internet and worldwide information at our fingertips. I feel this is the most defining aspect of Generation Y.
