This course is very helpful, especially for us as students; we can take the writing skills we have learned with us to the workplace. I learned to be more direct and to the point in my writing. I also understand the differences between writing and academic writing.
Conversely, Lori was against about their childhood days being put into words and being read by everyone. Her dad no longer lives but her mother enjoyed the way the public patronized their life (Hazlick).

I think KOKUMO’s actions were worth doing because she was able to share her life to the public; in doing so, KOKUMO was able to level with the people by allowing them to image how it felt to be in her shoes.

The scene sets the expectation that this was going to be a family drama or a comedy and the focus will be on this happy family environment. Yet, the play undergoes a subtle shift in mood and tone and turns out to be something a lot more serious.
