Should parents be punished for their children's bullying crimes? One New York student thinks so. She's taking her aggressors and their parents to court, and she's not the only one who favors such action. Caitlin Rocco, a senior at Scholars Academy in Rockaway Beach, told New York's CBS2 that she has been "tormented" for years by classmates. And while she said she's "counting the days until graduation," she doesn't plan to leave high school without fighting back.
David Midyan 2 TIEAC paragraphs (Novel: Speak) In the beginning of the novel, Melinda is depressed. She is often alone and quiet, because she called the cops at the party. Even her ex-best friends don’t want to talk to talk to her because of that. For example, in “Spotlight” Melinda thinks, “Nobody really wants to hear what you have to say” (9 page). She thinks of that, because she realizes that others remember what happened at the party.
Another thing with text messages is that when you tell her you are leaving your house and forget to text her when you arrived to school, she will do the same thing until you finally text her back. She will tell you that she has been very worried and that you need to answer your phone because that's why you have one. Then she is usually annoyed. Which is what you want of course! Now another way to annoy your mom is to swerve all over the road.
The tone that she uses in her piece seems to be sarcasm and this sarcasm is what leads me to the assumptions I make and the way I read her essay. She obviously wants to go to school and become economically independent and be able to support herself. I think that she is not happy with her current situation of being a mom and a wife and feels unappreciated. She stays home and does all the things she lists for her husband, but she resents this role in society that she is in. I assume that she wants a divorce from her husband but because of the role that society has placed on her, but she is unable to get one because she is very dependent on him.
Amy contemplates about notifying her parents and the father of the fetus, Amy is unsure if she wants to keep the child or have an abortion, her mother Molly Ringwald also known in the sitcom as Anne Juergens suggest adoption and Amy move away so she does not have to face everyday life at her high school. This show focuses on real life dilemmas and it was formulated to lower statistics on teenage pregnancy. Grant-Davie defines rhetorical situation as the particular circumstance of a given instance of communication or discourse. The rhetorical situation from the text I am analyzing would be teen age pregnancy. Rhetorical situation involves an audience and the implied audience of this show would be teenage girls and women of all ages, however there are other audiences like an accidental audience which would be someone who watches the sitcom without prior knowledge of it.

Marjane spends one last night in the arms of her grandmother who advises her not to carry resentment or hatred towards anyone. The next day, her parents take her to the airport.
