Furthermore, what women do and say through their hair care can shed light on how members of a cultural group use hair more broadly as a signifier of status. Although hair may seem like such a mundane subject, it in fact has a profound implication for how African American women experience the world. Everyday these women are faced
This unique habit rewards Hurston as an author for original black fiction that other authors lack. Hurston's ideas towards language and her style of writing "undergird" many contributions to black literature that followed. Additionally, an exceptional part standing that makes Hurston's novel personal, that which she doesn't mention, is all that her readership would draw
Tone: Is the way something is said, pitch, speed, volume, soft or harsh. For example the person may not remember what was said, but they will always remember how you made them feel. Paraphrasing: This involves repeating what’s been said by putting it into your own words. It lets the person know you’re following and checks out your own understanding. E.g.
By passing through Irene, Clare believes she will be able to reclaim her black heritage and return back to who she used to be many, many years ago. The process of passing in both Clare and Irene's life throughout the novel restricted them from fully existing in a white or black world. These women used the different forms of passing as ways to try and find themselves but this only held them back from fully expressing all sides of their selves. The color of your skin does not define you as a person and Clare eventually learns this and regrets ever passing as white. Yes, living as a white citizen at this time period may have been much easier than living as an African American but if you are not

People who are good at active listening also tend to be skilled at using minimal prompts. These are things like nods of the head, ‘Mm’ sounds and encouraging words likes ‘Yes, I see’, or ‘Go on’. Skilful use of minimal prompts encourages the person to keep speaking or say a little more. * Use of body language and proximity – people use different forms of body language to communicate feeling and to support what they are actually saying. Effective communicators often use the SOLER behaviours when they are sitting down talking to another person.
A1b To build and maintain relationships with children I would communicate with them in an age appropriate manner, identify and find solutions for issues that are preventing positive relationships for the child or young person. Important factors in building these relationships and enabling them to have positive relationships in the future involves teaching them how to :- Build up trust Reassurance that people do care and want to help them Keep them safe, with their permission Provide learning opportunities Comfort within the home environment Respecting each other and responding in an appropriate way. A1c I effectively build relationships with young people by slowly allowing them to let me into their personal lives. This is by a slow but gentle getting to know each other method.

She also decided to use some yarn and place it on the top of the head in a couple of messy buns. The effect was, in all honesty, creepy. It stood out to me though, which is why I decided to include this piece. The artist took Bearden’s style of collage and adapted it to her own art. She herself was African American which adds to Bearden’s theme of African
