Amal creates a "to be or not to be list" or as she called it "to wear or not to wear list" she wrote down all the people who would judge her if she wore the hijab she wrote the okay people on one side such as her parents, friends and family and the other side she wrote the not so okay people like girls from her school, people who she never speak too and neighbours. There are so many people on that list that Amal doesn’t want to be judge by but one person in particular that Amal is intimidated by is her principal Ms Walsh. The day Amal went to school and skipped homeroom straight away went to the office waiting to see Ms Walsh and explain to her why she is wearing the hijab. After Amal walked into her office Ms Walsh didn’t notice it at first till she turned around and was speechless she was shocked that Amal came to school wearing it. One of her first questions was “so you’ve been made to wear it from today?” Amal knew she’d be stereotyped and instantly Ms Walsh thought she was forced to wear the hijab, little does she know that it isn’t always a religion statement but it’s part of her faith and it’s a choice not a forceful decision.
When Janis confesses about the whole plot Regina storms out of the school and gets hit by a bus. When everyone shuns Cady she decides to take’s the whole blame for the book. Cady than reiterates than being Cady made her feel worse than she thought, which we find out cause of the use of narration. Than when she is named the queen she tries to win back the support by breaking up the crown and distributing it to everyone. So the gist of the whole movie is to show the complexity and social classes in a high school.
But she will never bring her friends. This was not only arrogant, but highly insensitive. Dee, dressed in brightly colored African attire and sporting an afro, proves to be insensitive when she insist that her mother and sister call her Wangero. Dee informs her mother and sister that
I felt the warmness on my cheeks as they turned red from embarrassment as my second grade teacher asked me a simple question, “What do you want for Christmas?” I felt the eyes of my classmates burning on my body as I struggled to answer her. Speaking up in class was never an easy task for me. I kept to myself growing up because of the social discomfort I felt with my peers and teachers. It never occurred to me that my family dysfunction was the negative impact on my social skills until my older sister explained to me that there were more children who were under the same circumstances that we were in. Being a child in a dysfunctional family has made growing up more difficult because even though my sister pointed out to me that our parents cared for us deeply, she convinced me that they unintentionally neglected us and our emotional needs—according to a study she came across.
She was adopted when she was only young, her foster parents always fight and on top of that the whole school classifies her as a freak! Alyssa Brugman’s book “Walking Naked” is probably one of the most significant books I’ve read about schoolyard bullying. The book describes the bad side about bullying and its life changing consequences in this case. For me it made me stop and think about the way I treat people. Everyone is equal and deserve to be treated that way even if we are all a bit different in the way we look and act.
Star girl summary Stargirl is everything but normal. The people of Mica High think that she is a real fraud because of Hillari Kimble’s big hoax about her everything. Who wears 1920s flapper dresses to school! Even if it is not Halloween or a holiday, her dresses are outrageous. The normal for Stargirl is long floor dropping dresses.
Theater Response Paper: Actors The play that I went to see at 59E59 Theaters was called Gidion’s Knot by Johnna Adams. The play depicted a parent/teacher conference between a mother and her son’s teacher. The mother, Corryn, still wanted an explanation as to why her son, Gidion, was suspended from his fifth grade class even though he committed suicide a few days prior to the conference. Gidion’s teacher, Heather, is apprehensive about telling Corryn why Gidion was suspended without the principal and the school board attorney being present. The play was heart-wrenching yet enjoyable because of the hard work done by the actors and detailed technical aspects.
The way he said this to Tasha makes her have this sense of false hope in that her parents are not separated, they are just “living apart.” This quickly unfolds at school when one of the girls loses a game to Tasha and says “I just let you win because my mother told me that everyone is suppost to be nice to you because your parents are getting separated and everything.” (p.7) This confuses Tasha, and makes her question what her father and mother said to her and if they were telling her the truth or not. In the second part of the book the lies are not as apparent as the lies are in part one and in part three. In part two the lies are more a cove up of what is really happening in this family’s life. Such as Rodney’s mother, who feels that lying to herself about her family’s social class makes her look better as a person. This is evident when Rodney says “Never mind that the shoe box she chose to make your sister’s diorama conspicuously bears the label of her only Italian pumps.”(p.88) She is trying to make herself feel better

He was soon sold to plantation owner William Ford in which he easily got along with because of carpenting skills and great musical talent. William Ford even gave Solomon Northup a violin as a gift, but the head carpenter on the plantation John Tibeats shows great resent towards Solomon because of his intellegence and makes it his job to harass Solomon at any chance he could. John Tibeats harassment really challenged Solomon's faith, there was even one instance when Paul Tibeats began to beat Solomon but Solomon not only resisted but he retaliated and began to beat John. Because of this Solomon was hanged on a tree and the only thing keeping him alive were the tips of his toes, but Solomon's faith remained strong and he tried his best to
