Personal-Contextual: One example of contextual discourse that you see throughout the movie is Carlys relationship with her boyfriend, is somewhat similar to the relationship that she has with her father.

Squeaky is the main character in Toni Cade Bambara’s story, “Raymond’s Run.” She is the character I will be analyzing. She changes from being an insecure, arrogant fighter to a respectful, confident girl. The reason she changes is because she watches her brother run his first race and she realizes that he’s a good runner. At the beginning of the story, Squeaky is tough and arrogant.

These shows lead the children to believe in aggression, which is defined as the behavior intending to bring harm or negative consequences to others. The operational definition in this case is how much television teenagers watch. The selected participants would be teenagers, who are between the ages of 13 to 17 years old, and there would be a random sample in order to fairly represent a population so that each member has an equal chance of inclusion. Once all the participants write down what their favorite television shows are, they are told that this is a corellational study to make the connection between violent shows and teenagers getting arrested.
