If she had made that effort maybe all the controversy between Barry junior and his sisters would have been prevented. Barry seniors wife did not just avoid helping the family but also contributed to the fights by publishing some not so good information on the family. Another good thing the Ferre family did was to keep in contact with each other. Barry and his sisters had not seen each other in years and all of a sudden they were expected to work together. Controversy was bound to happen.

Maintaining a good reputation is therefore essential in belonging in the community. Trying to sustain a good reputation is seen mostly with Abigail Williams. Due to her deceitful and manipulative ways, it is essential for her to cover up any trace of wrong doing she has done to carry on a healthy reputation.

Geddes’ essay was effective overall and managed to get the point across. There is a transition throughout the essay, from the start of her childhood to growing up into adulthood. The reader is able to understand the respect that she has for her family and community in the beginning and then the harsh reality of the intolerance for diversity as she goes to school. In the end she does realize that she is good enough to go to post secondary despite what people may have said earlier.

To fulfill ones ethical obligation at the expense of being shunned by others and the threat of being ostracized by neighbors and citizens throughout the community demonstrates a strong and confident sense of moral duty. Once Antigone made a promise to her brother that he would be buried, it then became her moral duty to follow through with that promise. Creon thought that he possessed the authority to determine who got buried and who went to the underworld, when clearly it is not at his discretion – it is the Gods who decide.

Therefore even though Arrow was being hard on herself for the killings, she did what was best for the people around her.
I have already learnt a variety of facts about this town, and am already starting to feel empathy for children in my class. I have learnt that I know now to never predjuce any tiny fact about Maycomb as the consequences seem to be very serious, for example the case of Walter. If Scout ever dares to let her father read to her outside of school she will be in serious trouble. I hope the class understands me after a while, and that they respect me and are enthusiastic about learning. I hope the class continues to display courage, as that is a important theme of life that should not be ignored.
However for the few Caucasian students, my friends say that they were always pushed to succeed, not out of the doors. One of my friends, Brittney, would say how simply because her parents were on welfare that she felt as if she would just amount to that in her future if she did not have any support. That story stood out to me when you stated “a supportive and trusting environment provides ‘identity security’ to students, who are then emotionally more ready to challenge the stereotypical myths” (196). The previous quote really hit home for me. All it really takes is for one teacher, just one, to give you the extra push that you need to succeed academically.
