In the short story “Girl” by Jamaica Kincaid, the mother is protecting her daughter through her parenting style in many ways.

Quindlen supports her argument with facts of how much teachers make, and how hard teachers really do have it. Quindlen uses key points to keep the readers reading the article. Quindlen’s second analogy is because she compares teachers to administrators and legislators by saying, “no school administrator should ever receive a percentage
With this understanding, today I stand before you to put up my views in favour of ‘ homework should not be banned.’ First of all, homework encourages students to undertake independent learning which they will be required to do when they go to higher standards. Many people argue that schools spoon-feed their students, which makes them completely unprepared for what awaits them at higher education when all research and further reading must be done on the student’s own time. By setting homework in the form of projects and assginments students will be able to learn on their own and develop skills that will serve them well in later life. It also helps to teach the students responsibility and time management skills as the teacher is not there to make them learn. “Practice makes perfect” as the saying goes.
If it takes time, she will be there in support for every step they take. In order to get a student to want to learn more, the teachers must build a motherly bond with them. 4. In what ways does this essay point out the education system’s effect on teachers as well as students?

We as parents always want to make sure that whenever our children are speaking to us that we are always listening to them. Also as parents we don’t want to be so quick to judge because if we judge before we know the facts or the truth then our kids will think we don’t trust them either. We need to make sure as parents that we show them that we understand their points of views and we care enough where they are coming from will help someone to be a good parent. *Our children tend to learn by our actions, so we as parents need to lead by example and show them what is right. Children need to be taught how to be responsible, caring, and hardworking and learn to be patient from watching and learning these traits from their parents.
Both Bennett and Spark use their main characters to show how easily influenced young people can be under the influence of somebody they look up to. Bennett uses Hector and Spark uses Miss Jean Brodie. There are a number of similarities between these characters, however the main likeness is that both teachers chose not to follow the conventional teaching method, they would rather not stick to the curriculum and feel that what they choose to show their pupils will ultimately serve a greater purpose and make them well rounded individuals. In “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie” from the very first page of the novel the girls are singled out and referred to as “the Brodie set”. This shows the reader from the beginning that these girls are different from the rest of the school; they are seen as almost belonging to Miss Jean Brodie.
It is the responsibility of parents to teach their children the many valuable lessons that will help to guide them through their lives. This is demonstrated many times throughout the novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. It is shown mostly by Atticus and Calpurnia, who are constantly giving Jem and Scout advice about what is right and what is not, in life. Scout especially, learns from Atticus not to judge people before she learns their story and also to respect people in her company, to not act like she’s better than others around her. All of these lessons help Scout’s development throughout the novel.
Being punished during recess, requiring to take 2 speech classes to get rid of the accent ,and “ Who to say that robbing people of its language is less violent than war “ is the quote that she put at the end of the first paragraph , are examples that clearly show how she felt back then. In “ The Veil “ the author asked for freedom to dream and to do everything in life . Although she believed that she was born with religion , the unnecessary religious rules, and stereostyle prevent her living with a light heart . She wanted to change people’s thoughts and bring justice to everyone. In an imaginary vision in the last cartoon, she holds a scale of justice, makes a sign of love, and holds a sword and shield and declares that she wants “to be justice, love, and the wrath of God all in one.” The difference from the two essays are areas of focusing.
Another behaviour Grant would have in the adaptation would be learning from Vivian’s teaching methods. Grant only sees teaching as a steady job, while Vivian sees herself as a role model and motivates her students. Grant humiliates his students, such as the girl who could not write her simple sentence in a straight line, while Vivian encourages her students and even has them writing sentences in French. If Grant could see Vivian’s teaching style, then he would realize what he needs to do in order to reach his students. For my adaptation, I decided to choose a television miniseries.
I believe the author is trying to show us by using her life story to explain that we sometimes are blinded by what we think that we really need (but in fact we just want it), that we cannot see beyond our current desire because due to the fact that we think about it in a sugarcoated perspective. This, I believe, is what the author is trying to tell us in that it is better to heed advice from those who know more, or have more experience. In the author’s situation, her mother knew the boarding school’s true colors by seeing the outcomes of those who went before as well as the outcomes of her older child’s experiences. When Zitkala arrives at the place of “big red apples”, the author is telling us she didn’t like it, cried a lot, and wanted to be back with her mother. In this way I believe the author continues to show that we always will reap the consequences that are a result of the decisions we make without heeding the warning signs given by those wiser and older than us.
