In this instance, John’s social standing as a husband and a doctor conspire against the narrator’s enunciation of her illness. A metaphor is offered that serves as a reverberation of the author’s paradigm. Elaborating on the woman’s vision, “she is ... always creeping, and most women do not creep by daylight” (Gilman 10). In its generality, the role of the married woman is obstructed by the public eye. The need to obey societal normality hinders a couple from venturing astray from the fray and furthermore, seeking independence.
Throughout her book, Robbins uses the same argument technique. For instance, when Robbins writes about Taylor in one chapter, she explains how almost everyone has a college counselor, but more specifically Taylor’s’ is very hard on her, insisting that all three of her college essays weren’t good nor intellectual enough. Thus, Robbins dives into the consequences of overpaid counselors explaining that some even are paid to do the essay. “Instead of merely helping students present themselves in the best light, companies are fiddling with their content and some consultants actually write the essays themselves” (Robbins pg.75) Robbins tells the reader this information to help with her argument by showing what consequences comes out of the overachieving culture. Another character Robbins uses to create her argument is Sam.

It is easier said than done, but if you stop and think about it and put it in God’s everything will be okay. I agree with her being by her father’s side and reassuring him that he was no burden to her. I disagree that she didn’t discuss what he wanted to do and do it regardless how it was hurting her.
He became a doctor for fight for his patients, to do everything in his power to “make them better”. But what doesn’t realize is that his “better” and the patients may not be the same. I don’t appreciate Dr.Bersteins comments throughout this story. I think they are selfish and unnecessary. One of the examples: “Yes, I guess so.”Bernstein mumbles.
Molly Curcio November 13, 2011 Comparative Thesis Paper In both Deborah Tannen’s “Different Words, Different Worlds, and Anna Quindlen’s Between the Sexes, A Great Divide” an explanation is given about the differences between women and men.

Dong Sheng Huang 3 Separation A Price paid for pursue of dream “Mother and father, “ma,” “pa,” “dad,” “pop,”- all these I felt were unsuitable terms of address for my parents.” “The adult finally confronted, and now must publicly say, what the child shuddered from knowing and could never admit to him or to those many faces that smiled at his every success.” “Those were her words, but all the while her sounds would assure me: You are how now. Come close inside. With us” “Simplistically again, the bilingualists insist that a student should be reminded of his difference from others in mass society, of his “heritage.” “Without extraordinary determination and the great assistance of others –at home and at school- there is little chance for success.” “If I rehearse here the changes in my private life after my Americanization, it is finally to emphasize a public gain.” “From that distance, pretending not to notice on another occasion, I saw my father looking at the title pages of my library books.” “The boy who first entered a classroom barely able to speak English, twenty years later concluded his studies in the stately quiet of the
the time, money, and energy the NEA puts into issues like same sex marriage, abortions, homosexuality, womens rights, etctra, is excessive when we have students graduating who have great difficult with reading or struggle with basic math skills. the NEA's powerful hold on education today leaves them mostly responsible for the holes we have in our education. it is not only the faulty curriculum, but most importantly the failing teachers who the NEA hides, defends, supports, and so on; sticking by their constant cry of not enough pay, however is that an excuse to pass students who should have been held back years ago? the most disturbing problem with the NEA is when they brag about the success of their million dollar programs that are supposed to increase reading and writing skills, math skills, and overall education; the issue occurs when barely a quarter of students show positive results. how can anyone boast and petition funds for programs that are not
Mindsets In the nonfictional book, “Mindset” written by Carol S. Dweck, she mentions that students get fixed mindsets.

A student’s mindset comes from negative labeling from parents or teachers, or stereotypes based on race and class.
“I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man,” said Thomas Jefferson, the third President of USA. In “the Yellow Wallpaper,” the short story written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, there is a kind of tyrannical relationship between the narrator and her husband, John.
