In the article “Fear of Heights: Teachers, Parents, and Students are Wary of Achievement.” Author Bob Chase, who is president of the National Education Association pointed that teachers and parents should more worried about the students who involved in many extracurricular activities after school. He called these students are the “C” students. We know in all of the school teachers like the “A” students because they concentrate in class, serious write notes and review, all of the test result are also very good. Instead, the “C” students very busy every day. Since they into the class, they don't stop talking, send messages and also have a lot of function in school clubs.
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn “Someday you will remember what I said and you will thank me for it” (Smith throughout the whole book) Francie doesn’t really enjoy when people say this to her and wished that they would stop. All these people advise Francie to listen to what they have to say because they know it will help her in future problems. Her mother would say it to her often when she was lecturing her. I always was told this when I was younger and growing up thought it was stupid advice, but now I realize that I really did use their advice in troubling situations. My parents would always tell me this, and still do sometimes.
Freedom Moving into a new county for freedom is tough. Even though when you get to the country you are essentially free, unless you are accepted by the community you move to, you can’t be truly free. In his short story, “The Strangers that Came to Town”, Ambrose Flack is showing that true freedom is about being accepted. This is shown by the kids in the town and at school mocking the Duvitch kids, as well as people who they traded with were rude, and their entire family was marked “untouchable”. Firstly, the school kids mocked and harassed the Duvich kids.
He felt that they were uneducated therefore they had undesirable jobs and people treated them differently because of it. Rodriguez notes, “I was not proud of my mother and father. I was embarrassed by their lack of education” (55). Rodriguez goes on to say, “Simply, what mattered to me was that they were not like my teachers” (55). In the book Rodriguez takes every thing that his teachers say at face value and he never questions if perhaps they could be wrong or mistaken on subjects.
The principle whose name was Mrs. Bruno came out and apologized for what was happening and told her she would have Ms Cameel bring Ranasha to the office so we could talk our issues out. When Ranasha and Ms. Cameel arrived in the office Ranasha acted as if she was my best friend. So because of that no one believed me. After that we went back to class and everything seemed fine but once lunch time came they bulling was even worse. I promised myself I was not going back to school and I told my mother but she insisted I’d go and I had no choice.
Some of my first memories are about learning my alphabet, writing my name, and starting to read. In preschool my teacher, Ms. Fairview, would bring inflatable letters into class for us to learn with. Our class would spend one week on a letter and everyday there were fun activities that went along with that letter. By the end of those twenty-six weeks we were expected to recite the alphabet. As the rest of the students said their ABC’s I found that I struggled when it came to putting them in the correct order.
They say you are going to be ridiculed and torn apart today, and there is nothing they could do about it, but they hope you make the best of it and enjoy your day. Now picture this, you’re the one causing this kind of devastation for kids every time they go to work. This might be their first job and would be awful having to spend a 5-10 hour shift with someone like you. You could make them uneasy about wanting to go to work or pursuing a job career anywhere because there are people like you, to make it much harder than it needs to be. The workplace should be a safe “bully free” environment, where you go to make money and gain the work experience you need to get to the next step in your career.
At one point in my life I was nearly there growing up with my mom we went through poverty but never was homeless. Looking back at that always drove me to do better experiencing first hand would never want myself or my family meaning kids to go through that situation. The experience made me very diversity conscious of the world around me and the struggle that many others have. So I started thinking of the phrase there is always someone worst off than you. My hopes are that Josh finds that one person that will be willing to accepting him not by what he is going through but by the person I have grown to know the hard worker, the person who is willing to help, and the person who just wants the succeed.
Jeannie Neal-Ward Ms. Kearney Kok English 91 July 7, 2013 To be or not to be is the question Born February 13, 1977 and the oldest of 3; I have 2 younger brothers; I was able to experience some of the best ways of learning how to read and write while attending Arlington Elementary. I remember one teacher as she still stands out to me but I just can not recall her name. I was in the first grade and she would pull me out of class to show me how to read. It was 1st grade that I also learned how to begin writing. I remember reading books such as the Cat and the Hat, Green Eggs and Ham that were just a few that I remember learning how to read from.
