Andrew Hall Mrs. Krause English 11 Honors August 28, 2014 Abigail Adams Rhetorical Strategies Abigail Adams writes to her son, John Adams, in order to guide him and offer advice as he enters an important part of his life, of which she feels obliged to be a part of. In her letter she provides many instances of sincere and helpful advice, yet does not do so without the use of rhetorical strategies to emphasize her point and persuade her boy to adhere to her strict plan for him. Her acts of persuasion are in no way malicious or ill-fated, as they simply exhibit a classic “mother knows best” attitude in spirit of love and care for her child. In her letter to her son, Abigail Adams uses parental glorification, an appeal to the importance of knowledge, and an appeal to pride in one’s country in order to advise her son toward acts of her will. Abigail is well aware of the heavy regard for herself that she has bred into John, and thus uses this pre-established respect to heighten her own position to inform him.
I believe that in writing this book, McBride is establishing the fact that he is very proud of his success and how his mother was key in helping him accomplish it, but most of all, proud of his mother for being who she was. In order to convey his theme and purpose for The Color of Water, McBride had to utilize a distinctive organization. In each chapter, there are two parts. The first is about his mother’s life
Readers can learn to follow the examples of the good parent and they can now avoid doing bad things to their own children. Atticus and Calpurnia had done their part as great parents and surely Jem and Scout would grow up to be good parents themselves. But for Bob Ewell, his children would probably grow up thinking that what their father did to them was a good act and they will follow his examples, thus making them bad parents and bad examples for their future children. A good parent will never let their children be astray from the right path and will always try to teach them the right ways and how to be good parents themselves in the
How is it that two boys with the exact same name grow up in the same area but lead two completely different futures? The Other Wes Moore is a story that answers that question. The author Wes Moore and the other Wes Moore both grow up in Baltimore surrounded by the same culture however one ends up with a bright future while the other will spend the rest of his life behind bars for robbery and murder.

We then begin to learn how society and its people can have a major impact on our lives.
She finds daily work challenges and working with driven people to be highly motivating and she sees herself as a “star” at work. Based on her beliefs of what makes a good parent, she is also highly motivated to be a devoted mother at home.

The sacrifices, beliefs, and values parents’ implant in their children will help determine the person they grow up to be. A child is like a sponge that absorbs their parent’s thoughts and viewpoints that will stay with them for the rest of their lives. Parents make great sacrifices for the care of their children. No matter what parents are going to try to do the best to protect and give them what is the best for them. In the novel, The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini, the author uses the parallels of, Amir and Soraya, and their love and tension relationship with their fathers to demonstrate in the end, their fathers all they want is what is the best for them.
His constant negativity towards Rudy only seems to make Rudy stronger in his convictions. When Rudy brings home his first good report card from junior college and tells his father and brother that next year he will be playing for Notre Dame his brother says, “Do we still have to listen to this?” The more Rudy is rejected by his family the more he wants to prove everyone wrong. There were several mentors in Rudy’s life that help supported him in following his dream. This paper will touch on just a few of the majors. The first one was Pete.
The principal and I did not agree upon the punishment for the student. After explaining the reasoning behind my decision not to suspend, the principal let the decision stand. I felt my decision would have a positive impact on the student. I also gave this student an alternative solution rather than running away from his problems at school. Another ethical issue occurred when the principal allowed the counselor to transport a student home to pick up homework assignments.
I think this is the most important character you can have because it will push you through life and help you become a more reliable and better person. This belief has come from a lot of adult figures in my life but mostly my dad. My dad is always telling me that even if the situation is as bad as it can get you should still always
Being the first person in my family to get a college degree makes me feel so good. Setting example for children and letting them see that mommy can do it is priceless. The things that we do in life as far as school wise are thing we can take us to the next level is just a lot of us lose hope we are not sure where to go. I though getting a high school diploma was fine for me. I felt school was not for me because I have dyslexic and, I feel people just don’t want to help me.
