‘I really, really hate you.’ Call me sensitive, but I couldn't help but take it personally.” (Sedaris 171) Sedaris creates a tone of satire by using hyperbole. The teacher is ridiculous and takes her hate to an extreme by going out of her way to tell David she hates him every day. Not only does Sedaris feel left out because he can not pick up French, but he is the only student she has an extreme hate towards. He feels as if he does not belong anywhere he goes. He was quickly convinced that everything he said was wrong because of the utter disrespect from his teacher.
In its groove, a savage and frightening specter that wore the face of someone he cared for. Unstable, dangerous, violent and unpredictable, he was a hazard to himself and others. It was an animal, caged to the point of breaking where all pretense of natural manners and sanity were left to rot. These were the dark days and they were difficult for them both... ... middle of paper ... ...one day, the swirling maelstrom of time would consume the sights and memories and feelings of a sound that made his insides wrench. And then he think that he would have finally beaten him at something.

Great Teachers, Bad Students "I have a student in my second hour class who is an idiot ." Students probably have never heard their teachers complaining about them in the halls. In contrast, a person could roam Jefferson and hear conversations about how terrible teachers are from every corner of the school. "I got an F- on the final but it's only because Mr. Doe* is a crappy teacher." This a common attitude among students who fair poorly on a test.
This soon became more of a discipline class rather than the student learning about math, and apparently the "bully" had created pointer with the paper clips that could have actually hurt someone. Soon after Ms. Metcalf had to call the assistant principles to step in to discipline the student, and lost a entire day of instructions due to one student misbehavior. After the misbehaving student had left she went over to the emotional distraught student and began discussing that he should never let people 's words if they weren 't nice and that entire lesson became a lesson on
I stopped looking for ways to get involved in school because of a bully named Cuevas. He would taunt me all the time. It began with him being nice only to get answers to assignments. I eventually realized his agenda and stopped speaking to him. He of course, did not like it one bit, so he started tormenting me by disrespecting my space and making me scared of staying after school.
As a student, standardized testing is the worst thing invented since the guillotine. While advocates of standardized tests are right to want proof that students are learning, it is wrong to base teacher salaries off of the results. What the government fails to acknowledge when basing a teacher’s salary off the test is the lack of interest from students. Often pupils take the tests as jokes and teachers show bitterness over losing two weeks of teaching. After being told what they must teach and how a bitter taste has been left in the mouths of many teachers.
They try as hard as possible to be in full denial of their surroundings. Such as Hibbert, who went to the full extent of dealing with fear and found that he could not cope it anymore and therefore tried to run away. This shows signs of anxiousness in Hibbert. Stanhope is the main character and the company commander, and therefore, I find that his fears are more forceful and influential than the others. He therefore becomes distressed and finds it hard to deal with his fears.
Secondly, Ender’s emotions give away as he faces the obstacle of “overcoming” the game, thus only resulting in his anger being released. Ender grew tired of the complaining as he shouted, “Ender slammed his ope... ... middle of paper ... ... his entire journey was to prepare for this war however, as he was outnumbered this caused him to use destruction as his only source of hope due to the fact that any other option would result in a disastrous toll upon Ender’s army. In conclusion, when Ender is put in tight scenarios where he has very few options to choose from, it results with his emotions being expressed in a violent form. As a result, Ender’s mental state is affected by the violent actions taken upon Ender by showing the effect it has on the mind and how it effects one another. The effects upon Ender’s physical state results with him choosing to use violent acts in order to avoid the harm that is brought upon physical combat.
However this time it was different. The homework would have a huge effect on my final grade. I was scared that’s why I never gave them the paper.
