38) This experience with his teacher stuck to Malcolm as one of the first clear voiced memories of racism. Later in the book he talks about being proud that he overcame all of the people that doubted him, but he still internalized all the memories from his youth into who he is when he gets older. Malcolm X in a way pretends that he doesn’t care about some of these memories; that they don’t affect him. Although why would be bring them up later in the book, if it had gotten over it? Why does he still feel the need to prove them
Later in Rose’s life, he eventually moved out of vocational program and back to typical school system. At this time, his father passed away, which is not so relevant with the main plot. Later, Mr. MacFarland came into Rose’s life as his English teacher in senior year. Rose looked up Mr. MacFarland deeply because he sincerely cared of his students, told the importance of working hard to them and even encourage Rose to pursue further education in college. I can tell that Mr. MacFarland left positive impacts on Rose’s whole life, and helped him found his real potential.
What haunted the narrator is that he acted in the same manner... ... middle of paper ... ...t he first had to attend college though. In the end, the narrator did actually benefit from his grandfather's advice, which had tortured him for so long. He states during the story (referring to his grandfather), "It was as though he had not died at all..." (Ellison 430). This is a very true statement. The advice that he gave to the young boy stayed with him for a long time, and in the end guided him to an understanding of the ways of society.
Nicholas Sparks’ A Walk to Remember is a classic “coming-of-age” novel that is a simple enough read to allow high school students to relate to the storyline. When Landon Carter finally accepts his feelings for Jamie, who has helped him become a better person in more ways that either of them know of, he reaches the pinnacle of his transformation from a troubled and resentful teenager into a respectful and selfless young man. A text included on a required reading list for high school students should have a theme that allows them to relate to the characters, to figuratively put themselves in their shoes and feel as if they are part of the story. It should also develop the students’ moral compass and teach them a valuable lesson that will help them throughout their lives. A Walk To Remember is a great Coming-of-Age novel for high school students to read because it allows students to hear the main character’s voice change and mature throughout the novel and provides an opportunity for them to reflect on whether it is best to listen to logic or to listen to one’s heart, Landon’s personal growth, and the brevity of life.

My grandpa liked chorus the most, and he hated the rest of the classes. He remembers something Mr. Banks, a math teacher, said to him. "Well Ronnie, it's just a little to little, and a little to late." He is the most proud of graduating college after twenty years. He regrets not having a teacher tell him about the importance of education.
She explains how her son was just pushed through school. “Our youngest, a world-class charmer, did litter to develop his intellectual talent but always got by” (559). He got through school by being a good kid, he was quiet and didn’t get in trouble. This was how he made it to his senior year until Mrs. Stifter’s English class. Her son sat in the back of the room talking to his friends; and when Mary told her to just move him “believing the embarrassment would get him to settle down” (559) Mrs. Stifter just told her “I don’t move seniors I flunk them” (559).

The story is about a boy's adventures only, but under Mark Twain talent pen, it becomes attractive to both children and grown-ups.
