Carl is not fond of auntie Beryl because she is cold, rude and abrupt to almost everybody. Carl isn’t the most confident and mature boy, he is very awkward and shy. Early in the novel Carl is not confident, he is very shy and weak. Carl is like this because he didn’t know who his father was, his mother never pays any attention to him, and he never knows where she is which makes him worry a lot. Carl is often shifted to his Auntie Beryl’s house which she doesn’t treat him with respect or kindness.
1. What are the main sources of conflict in this case? “As you know, both human relations and accounting were my weakest subjects during the master's program”. This is how Spencer describes himself. He knew that he is not good enough with human relations but he did not try to work on it or develop it and we can see that clearly reflected in his work.
There is a common theme between this poem and this book: the loneliness, depression, and neglect teenagers face leads them to feel like “outliers” of society. Holden is going through a tough time after the loss of his brother. Life hasn’t been easy for Holden; he has had to deal with his bad grades, the stress of getting kicked out of schools, and the neglect by his parents. He has nobody to talk to, nobody to console him. In the poem, a fourteen year old faces many critical issues, although in comparison to Holden’s they seem trivial.
So, You Think Your Life Sucks? “My life sucks!” A certain student in our English class (he sits right behind me) cries after he realizes I achieved a higher grade on a paper than he did. This student, he who shall not be named, was extremely upset about this rather unfortunate incident and he truly believed his life was terrible due to this one instance. Now, we all know that he has no chance of rising up to my level of awesomeness and that is nothing of which to be ashamed. However, this particular student still felt that his life was horrible because of this.
Due to his background teachers regarded him as a hopeless cause because his difficulty in using Received Pronunciation which contrasts against Harrison's attitude towards language and that there is a variety of dialect within the English language which everyone uses to convey a conversation with one another. When Harrison was young he was overawed by his "posh" teacher who embarrassed him resulting in him feeling demeaned and docile. The first section is in the form of a memory emphasised through the embedded dialogue of the teacher showing how he is undermined as the teacher wants to make sure their "glorious heritage" is not "done to death" suggesting that teacher is aiming to undermine Harrison by discouraging him from reading the important roles. Similarly, in "Bringing Up", he emphasises his separation from his mother as she disgusted over him using taboo language. The use of embedded dialogue implies the different view on the Leeds accent emphasised in his mother being disgusted with him and believes he was not "brought up to write such mucky books!"
Yes, boys are bad at school; I can say this because I’m a boy and I see everything first hand, my peers are less and less interested in school and college, they often talk about just either dropping out of high school and getting a job, graduating and just work and not go to college or simply join the military. If they fall back on their work they don’t get any special treatment and thus are not helped, they are simply left to fail. I am not one of those boys, mostly because my parents wouldn’t stand for it and no matter how much they get on my nerves when it comes to school, I understand why they push me. They simply don’t want their oldest son ending up in a dead-end job for the rest of his life. I’m lucky, because the other boys that don’t plan for college or simply don’t even want to bother with school usually don’t get support from their parents, so why can’t the school do
After all bullies usually only pick on people they know they can make feel bad to make themselves feel good. Ishmael didn’t feel good about himself, he hated his name he hated hearing the story of how he was born. Ishmael squirmed every time he heard his mother and father tell the story of how he was born and where he got his name from. At school Ishmael spent most of his time, as he says “making himself as small a target as possible” to avoid the bully Barry Bagsley and all the names he called him. Names like Le Spewer, Fishtail Le Sewer and Manure.
His father was very laid back and accomplished nothing in life and Okonkwo hated him for it. Okonkwo’s eldest son Nwoye is lazy and weak from an early age. Okonkwo’s fear of his father’s laziness rubbing off on his son Nwoye changes Okonkwo from hero to villain when he beats him to make himself more masculine. What he thinks is helping his family is actually causing pain. Okonkwo’s wives are often beaten for the simplest of things, sometimes even for not explaining to him where they have gone.
Students don’t have that support from the teacher that they need to succeed in school. They struggle because the teacher is helping somebody else or having to teach the entire class. The final and main reason why high school grads are unable to read is failure of the parents. Parents are so wrapped up in their busy lives that they don’t make time for their children. Children are often home alone with too much independence.
