This is because it was selfish of her to choose to be a Dauntless. Beatrice doesn’t like to be told what to do, and will stand up for what she thinks is right. Beatrice tries to be kind to others, but sometimes she just can’t control herself. Ideas The main idea is developed when beatrice decides to switch factions, and when she takes the test to see what faction suits her best. When she takes the test it develops the main idea because her results are inconclusive, meaning she fits into more than one faction.
The quote tells us that Tris’ Divergence shows when she doesn’t know which object to choose, so she becomes stubborn and doesn’t... ... middle of paper ... ...that control the simulation and destroy the data” (453). This shows how she is determined to shut down the program, so that Abnegation is not destroyed and no more people are killed than needed. Tris’ loyalty and defense for Tobias changes her by displaying her ability to take control in an intense situation and do the right thing. The choices Tris and Tobias make, like choosing their actions in the aptitude test, letting each other know their secrets, and defending each other, impact the overall plot of the book and the fate of the society and characters. As discussed in this essay, one choice can alter everything.
In Briony’s situation, the most she can do to try to make amends with Cecelia and Robbie, who are both dead, is to imagine their lives as they could have been if Briony had not committed her crime. By creating a work of corrective fiction, she is utilizing her best option to try to atone. Unfortunately, these efforts can never be successful because she does not take full responsibility for the crime, she cannot apologize directly to the victims, and she changes the outcome of the story to lessen the burden that falls on herself. As a result, Briony’s work of corrective fiction cannot serve as satisfactory atonement for her crime. Works Cited Finney, Brian.
Ralston Elementary School (2015) suggest that teachers should role model questions to students which encourage higher order thinking. The next step is to collect information and analyse it (Glibert, as cited in Preston, et. al., 2015). Reynolds (2012) suggest the use of brainstorming and graphic organisers as ways to collate and present the information. The final step is to decide what to do with the information.
Next, I will need to make sure that students understand the stable order rule. According to our book the stable order rule looks like a number – name list that is used in a fixed order every time a group of objects is counted. So when a student counts one, two, three, four,… thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, they are following the rules of stable order. However, when a student is unable to get their numbers in the correct order for example, they say one, two, ten, seven, five, and so on there are two options the teacher can use. These are reteaching or having the students listen to other students count c... ... middle of paper ... ... do to adapt the curriculum in order to help them learn.
Hidden Curriculum Essay How well do you know today’s school system? Maybe you did not know they have a hidden curriculum. What would you think if I told you that from the very beginning you are being categorized to fit in a special position to either be the future working class or the new CEO of some corporation?. Jean Anyon, chairperson of the Department of Education at Rutgers University (Social Class and The Hidden Curriculum of Work), describes the different teaching methods, philosophies of education, and how we all being prepared to occupy a particular spot in the society.

Introduction The author of Divergent ,Veronica Roth, analyzes as to why people act and thinks the way they do and to why they defy the system. She uses the psychological aspects of behavior genetics, neuroscience, and social cultural. The norms are what allow societies to thrive, without the norms society would go into chaos as no one would be able to be kept in line. Divergent follows the life of a young girl who is faced with the choice to decide in which faction to spend the rest of her days. Unlike her peers and fellow city, she is not in the norm she can not be just one personal trait nor could she be manipulated through simulations.
His final conclusion about Roxana's character is that She is condemned to search for an identity in the story of her selves and be unable ever to find it, because she both wants and does not want to be legion (329). This article presents an interesting, and valid argument about the character of Roxana in all her complexities. However, I think other arguments could be as plausible, depending on your viewpoint of Roxana. Are we to see her as insecure in her identity and confused as to what she wants? And if so, can we ever really know her true character if she cannot ever know her self?
Everyone would be unoriginal since they conform to the same rules. In Divergent, Tris is the poster child for going against conformity. She chooses her own path in life, goes against “the test”, and she challenges any standards that society places out for her. Tris leaves her faction, abnegation, because “[she isn’t] selfless enough, no matter how hard [she tries] to be." (pg 336) She isn’t what her faction obliges her to be, and unlike many others she did not try to become something she was not.
Rollin also discusses the many reasons why motherhood is not a path many would like to follow, and lists the numerous adverse effects it has. While Rollin presents professional perspectives, and several evidences from reliable sources, there are many areas she ignores that do not support her point. Jessica Hopkins, a college student, points some of them out in her essay, “When Babies Aren’t Enough: Analysis of Motherhood: Who Needs It”. Hopkins believes that Rollin's passage was extreme, and might be viewed as ridiculous by the average women. She states that while society influences us in many ways, a mothers desire to have children is not one of them.
