This documentary uses a range of generic conventions to position the audience to see Sam as a rebellious, mean teenager. This reinforces the traditional representations of contemporary society. The opening scene of ‘Educating Essex’ reinforces the traditional ways of thinking about teenagers through the generic conventions of a documentary. The opening scene has loud rock music which is the type of music associated with rebellious teenagers. The selective footage helps to show the bad behavior of all the kids picking fights, disobeying teachers, punching walls and not behaving.
Some of the Major issues and concerns in Harper Lees To Kill A Mocking Bird include prejudice, courage and the innocence of a child. Lee aims to raise awareness towards the prejudice views in the small town of Maycomb and to point out the multiple flaws this bias town has. Through out the text Lee has introduced characters to help symbolise there position In society, for example Boo Radley who is an outcast to society is symbolised as a mockingbird figure. This character would be a strong example of prejudice in the town of Maycomb. Concerns are understood through the point of view of Scout and this choice of first person has shown the childish interpretation of major issues and the way views towards society changes as she grows up.
“The Power of Words” In modern day society language among people has really evolved in recent years, especially of a child’s vocabulary. Nowadays the language of children is more vulgar, abrasive, and rude and it hits children like bullets. A lot of the usage of these vulgar words do reflect the background that the children of today come from as well. But being of an adolescent mind the effect I see from children using hurtful language is verbally abusing their peers with out sense of how much words can really hurt. Even though there is a quote, “Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me.” But on the contrary in many cases as seen on the playground words do hurt, and not only do they hurt, they hurt almost as much as physical pain.
The boys prove man to be inherently evil through control, mistreatment, and murder. In The Lord of the Flies the boys on the island prove that humans are innately evil through excessive control. At the very beginning of the book Jack tries to control his choir, making them hunters. Jack said to Ralph, “I’ll split up the choir-my hunters that it,“ (Golding 42). Right here Jack already tries to imply that his choir is more savage than the rest of the boys by calling them hunters.
As is the case for most viral phenomena, there are those who aren’t too keen on hip-hop Elvis’s lyrical prose. They fear that his overwhelming invectives can and will entreat harm upon his avid listeners. In spite of the schism between the lovers and the haters, Eminem has undoubtedly taken the music industry by storm; and in turn, our views and considerations. While the zealots of ‘Slim Shady’ defend his lyrics and context with phrases like ‘artistic expression’ and ‘free speech’, as made evident in Jackson Katz’s essay entitled Eminem’s Popularity Is a Major Setback for Girls and Women, Eminem’s cultural trailblazing comes with a less-than charismatic price: widespread acceptance of violence against anyone and everyone who falls within the crosshairs of his philosophy. People see this on a day-to-day basis, sometimes blatantly, other times situated behind the cleverly posed acceptances found in daily public life: Guy eyes a fetching girl and advances discretely.
Each one of these is very evident and equal in harming the lives of millions of students. Bullying is almost like the way the Nazis treated the Jews and other victims of the Holocaust. Although the Nazis were literally killing off their victims themselves, bullies force some kids to commit suicide because they have made them feel so dire that they feel they have no choice but to take away their own life. Like Nazis, many bullies commit this torture because of peer influence or high stature. Hitler controlled the Nazis just like a bully has his/her little followers who abide by the bully so they can “seem cool.” Kids see violence and bullying everyday in movies and television portraying them as the popular kids; therefore, they think that being hurtful and cruel to someone is what will gain them that “presence” that they are striving for.
Wright defines his young character through the culmination of many events in which Richard chooses to resist being stuck by the limitations set by everyone above him: age, class, standard, and knowledge. Wright exposes a more significant allegory reflecting Richard’s deeper strength and passion to succeed unconventionally, through the lens of each small battle and conflict he faces against the southern community. Metaphorically also representing Richard’s journey to reach such powers within him are the encounters in which he must challenge authority depicted through his struggles to extricate himself from their trap and achieve his goal in life. Wright remembers,
Choice theory is where offenders are rational decision makers who choose to engage in anti-social activity because they believe their actions will be beneficial. Some adolescents choose to sell drugs because they think that it will help to improve their living conditions. Some choose to participate in gang activity because being in a gang makes them feel like they belong to something significant. Some may get a natural high off of committing crime. There could be a million reasons as to why a person commits a crime.
The scenes show fun, addicting etc. Fifa is loud cheerful and colourful, and call of duty is sad, blood, bad language which is not suitable for children and the impact it has is that it can influence kids and do bad things as they get older. The sound is noisy, which draws teenagers into the game as this is how they grow up, not being sad and quite. There are all sorts of camera shots at the start of the advert on the football one it starts off with a close up but pulls back to show the other players coming to tackle him. Then goes to a long shot because it’s showing the tacklers get beaten and when the player shoots it goes from mid shot to close up and when it’s in the goal it’s a very close up.
The intentions of this song is to educate the audience, while also describing factual details in the order of which they occurred. Described in the lyrics are some of the effects of bullying, which is both emotionally devastating and physically damaging to young people everywhere. The targeted audience for this music video are those people who care about such horrible tragedies, perhaps with a fear of them occurring in community. An alternate rhetorical strategy is applied by Pearl Jam, such as logos, pathos, and ethos within this video to illustrate, inform, and persuade the audience to listen to the song. In the music video “Jeremy”, Pearl Jam outlines a series of events that sadly resulted in a young boy taking his own life.
