Both Baby and Anne are very smart, but Baby isn’t recognized for it. Instead she is put into a practical learning class. “I didn’t bother explaining that I’d been on the honor roll at my last school. That I had to go to a program for kids who had learning disabilities made me sad beyond words.” (Page 202, O’Neil) Baby deserved more, considering she was on the honor roll. But because she had to go to a detention centre, the social worker basically forced her into going to this class.
Melinda has finally become popular, and can now speak the truth. ¨One girl, not the cheerleader, nods her head, and says, ¨Way to go I hope you’re OK.¨With hours left in the school year, I have suddenly become popular.¨(Anderson 197) Bullying has finally stopped and Melinda is now better known and a good role model by the end of the story because she spoke.

Part 1 At one point in high school my grades were below par which didn’t really make my parents happy. They decided to enroll me into a tuition center where may other kids take tuitions during the school holiday. One week in, I didn’t have a single friend, probably because I’ve always been a really shy person. I sat outside reading before my morning class. I looked up and noticed this girl was moving towards me, she engaged into conversation with me and then told me she thought I was real good looking and that definitely was an ego booster, she then suddenly left and I never saw her again because that was my last summer school class.
When I was in high school I experienced a bad teacher in English, then that following year I had an excellent English teacher. The bad English teacher kept to the same old ways of teaching by requiring us to memorize boring vocabulary words, and work out of the Text book to learn grammar. We would walk in and she would tell the assignment and then we would barely hear her speak throughout the remainder of the classroom period. My classmates and I dreaded going to this class everyday and most of us had very poor grades resulting from
My name is David Brice, and this is my story. I had a very good upbringing with extremely loving parents and siblings. I had the same struggles as every child has, some ups and downs but in general quite the happy childhood. My school life was a different matter, I couldn't stand it and it wasn't long before I was getting into all sorts of trouble, I took a beating from a teacher once and that was it I had a deep loathing for the teachers and couldn't wait to leave school. My family were religious and I got a bit of stick for this at school which I must admit didn't help but it wasn't the religions fault it was the cruel bigoted kids.
The book Phoenix Rising by Karen Hesse is one of the best books I have read in school. When I began reading it I did not understand the title, but as I read more I began to understand.

Nyle’s Grandma allowed two evacuees, a mother and her very sick son, to settle in her house until the boy got better.

Throughout the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, by Nell Harper Lee empathy is ever present. Each character has a personal situation, perspective, or experience I can empathize with. However, the character I can empathize with the most throughout the novel is Scout. In the beginning of the novel, Scout has a very rough first day of school she gets into a fight with Walter Cunningham, and her teacher tells her that her father, Atticus, is teaching her how to read all wrong. Scout is very upset and sad about her first day and tells Atticus that she does not want to return to school.
I started to become the center of all the girl drama that went around. And it seemed like I was in the counselor’s office regularly to get an update to see how I was doing. My lack of self confidence and the trouble in high school reflected my attitude towards my education. I was never confident when it came to projects, assignments, or class work. It felt like my peers were better than me because it seemed like they put a lot of thought and input into their school works while I felt like I turned in something worthless.
Jamison Mullen Ms.Cramer Final reflective essay 5/24/12 It’s been a long hard year for all the students that took English 10. It’s good that people take English because it affects the way we talk, live, and function in day to day life. I can say personally English helped my writing tremendously. I could hardly write essays due to my bad grammar and the inability to punctuate my words and sentences I’ve come a long way. It was worth every question and worksheet to where I am now.
