Collage

Screen Shot 2017-10-21 at 12.20.21 AM

I made a collage animal farm online. The images I choose for this college relate to throughout the whole book. In the first picture I’ve added a pig who plays as the Old Major. The Old Major is one of the first big character that was brought into the first few pages. George Orwell said in the first page that he is a pig. The type of pigs that are in the book are king, and grandfatherly philosopher of change.

The next picture next to the pig is a picture of a farm and the barn. The reason I decided to put that picture inside the collage, because it describes the setting of the story. The story mostly takes place inside a farm area so I thought it would be a great way to show the location of where the story takes place at.

Under the author name in my collage I put a picture of a cow. I put that picture there because I wanted to represent the other types of animals inside of the barn. I thought instead of showing all of the type of characters I just thought I would pick a normal typical animal that could be found inside a barn. I think it really does show the story about the animals base of it.

In the last picture I put a picture of the sky and a doddle of clouds and a moon on it. The point of the picture is to show the in the first chapter and their goal of it. The pig have a dream in is considered to be a strange dream. In the dream that he have is which animals ruled England and everything was fine and lovely.

PART I

  • Describe the setting and its significance.

In the beginning of “Winter Dreams” Dexter lives in Back Bear, Minnesota as a teenager. Seven years after Dexter had went to college, which is an older and more famous university in the East. Then later on in life he had move onto New York. It then takes place at the Sherry Island Golf Club. It’s there that the young Dexter first sees even younger Judy Jones; it’s there that Dexter falls for Judy Jones a second time as an adult; it’s there that Dexter sees the lifestyles of the rich and the famous. Which he wants to have for himself.

  • Describe Judy Jones at the age of eleven.  How do you feel about her treatment of the nurse?

Judy Jones’ at the age of eleven she was a very spoiled and egocentric child. Her treatment to her nurse was very rude and just not a right thing to do.

  • Why do you think Dexter quit?

The reason Dexter quits his job as a caddy is because of Judy. While he does work at the golf course, he is proud of moving up to being the most sought after caddy of the place; he is not there to be able to make a living.

  • Discuss the significance of this line: “… Dexter was unconsciously dictated to by his winter dreams.”  Are you dictated to by your “winter dreams”?

Winter dreams is the title of the story and it have a huge impact on Dexter. In the situation of the line, Dexter was working as a caddy. He later then decided to quit his job because of Judy. Judy is a very influential person to change Dexter’s emotion. So I think that his winter dream is Dexter’s perturbation by Judy. He really does love Judy; he was unconsciously dictated by her. Winter dream is very influential to people who love someone else.

  • What is the significance of the title?  Why do you think Fitzgerald used “winter” and not “spring” or “fall” in the title?  In what ways do the seasons affect Dexter’s outlook on life?

The significance of the title which is “Winter Dreams”. Dexter is the victim of winter dreams, adolescent fantasies that he is never able to fill. As he searches for happiness and love, he unwisely focuses his quest exclusively on Judy Jones, making her the sole object of his romantic projections.

 

PART II 

  • Describe the adult Judy Jones.  What kind of person is she?  Do you know anyone like her?

Judy is a foil character in the narrative as her wealthy upbringing contrasts Dexter’s more humble beginnings. Throughout the story, Judy is casually cruel to Dexter as she plays with hearts and emotions. In the end, her life falls short of the life that Dexter and others expected for her.  She was beautiful, tan, stuck up

  • How did Dexter justify Judy’s lying to him?

Dexter doesn’t mind that Judy lied to him because he was glad that she took the trouble for her to lie to him.

  • What does Dexter “surrendering” part of himself (beginning of part IV) mean?

Dexter and Judy seem to be possessed by lust rather than love. Though Dexter thinks he is surrendering himself to her (315), it seems more likely that he is surrendering to feelings of lust within himself. Though it does not have as much attention devoted to it as the other seasons, summer appears to serve as the amorous season. The brief relationship between Dexter and Judy is an important part of the story. The affair is greatly enhanced by the mood setting it in summer creates with very little time needed to establish that effect.

  • What does “direction” signify in the line at the end of part II, “…for the second time, her casual whim gave a new direction to his life.”

 

Lab Work Assessment

William Root Assessment –

 

One thing that I’ve learn about the early 19th century life is the type of games that they would play back then. They would mostly just use two type of sticks and a circle thing and they would throw it at each other using the sticks and try to catch them as well. Other game that they played they would grab a stick and another bigger circle wood and they would roll it around. Inside the house in the downstairs they would try to impress their guest, so they wouldn’t be seen as poor. Downstairs is the only part of the house where they would try to make look nice, like having wallpaper in the room would show some type of wealth. I also learn that back then the rooms and ceilings for the upstairs would be very small because back then the people wasn’t so tall and would have smaller space. They had moved the house over a street down where it was originally. In the early 19th century they would have another building for the kitchen so it wasn’t attached to the house.

Abigail Rhetoric Eassy

The following paragraphs are from a letter that Abigail Adams had wrote to her son John Quincy Adams on January 12th, 1780. In her letter to her son she uses rhetorical strategies where she uses advice to her son. In the opening of the letter Abigail Adams had picture her concerned for her son stating that “I hope you have had no occasion, either from enemies or the dangers of the sea, to repent your second voyage to France.” Adams clarifies “I should not have urged you to accompany your father and brother when you appeared to averse to the voyage.” In the overall letter the tone of it all is her being anxious for her son. Inside the letter Abigail gives advice to her son John Quincy Adams. Adams crafted into the letter with many rhetorics embedded into it to the letter. Abigail adds loving and enthusiastic yet at the same time manages to have a prudent tone to help convey the need for John so he will be able to do magnificent on his voyage and avoid any repent of the second voyage but to France. The tone she is giving to this letter is helping give an emotional appeal. Giving  John a sense of secure confidence he will do great on his trip to France. Adams is telling John in her letter to him that she have so much faith in her son to do well in his trip. She states in the letter that she knows that John would never giver her a “reason to lament it”, or any regret of her trusting him at all. Throughout the whole letter Adam express all of the additions towards her son such like the following quote “…You will find your understanding opening and daily improving.” Adam is also using praises to push him to strive for greatness. She is also using a sense of expectancy to do the same thing. This might be an employment of ethical appeal because by using a sense of moral to sort of lightly pressure her own son to do act on expectancy John’s mother lays upon him in a way subtle way. She stated in the letter “It will be expected of you, my son, that, as you are favored with superior advantages under the instructive eye of a tender parent.”  to help convey the sense of expectancy for her son, and this helps put a good roadway on John to ensure he does great while he’s there. Adam establishes her credibility by using some wisdom In her letter giving advice such as “the habits of the mind are formed in contending with difficulties, all history will convince you of this.” in today’s terms it she was saying that a great mind is formed by dealing with obstacles and time and events will prove this to you. This will be giving John a overview on the pretentious events he takes on later in life, when he becomes one of the president of the united states of American thanks to Abigail Adam’s amicable rhetoric strategies that were successful in stirring John Q. A. to become one of American’s greatest leaders to date.

Disobedience

    ‘Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is man’s original virtue‘ – Oscar Wilde.

 

    

    Wilde claims disobedience is a valuable human trait and that it promotes social progress. Disobedience is often viewed as an honorable trait, and is generally a bad term to use as a description of someone. I would agree with Oscar Wilde that disobedience is a valuable human trait. I truly believe that it does promotes the social progress of everything. Disobedience is failure or refusal to obey rules or someone in authority.  A reading of history clearly shows that it has been disobedience, rebellion, which have driven progress over the millennia.  It seems that because of the absence of resistance will lead to nothing changing for things to get better.

 

    As the years have gone by things like slave revolts, illegal strikes, LGBT riots, to even mass sit-ins, disobedience is the engine of progressive social change itself.  It has appeals to the abstract condition of order have been used for years to control the populace.  People protest for many things that they believe in. Lately in 2017 there has been a lot of protest to do with our current president Donald Trump.  You have the right to protest, but it just simply doesn’t always a good idea or work.

 

    Being disobedient doesn’t always mean that you’re being reckless or unethical. I just simply means that you’re thinking for yourself and others and resisting authority. Of course sometimes resisting authority and being disobedient is okay in order for you to do the right thing for humanity. So i believe that it’s okay to be disobedient to help others and do the right thing for everyone. It’s okay to be disobedient to disobey unjust laws, to question, and to stand up to the people who tells us “just do as I say so” or something around those lines. We shall not be afraid or ashamed to look around us and say that “this isn’t good enough.”

 

    In the quote from Oscar Wilde, he says that disobedience is an honorable trait for a person to have.  That they should be called disobedient is a complement. According to him disobedience is a beneficial thing for someone to have. Them having this trait social progress is being made.  For example people who is disobedient in a injustice against unjust laws I find it to be honorable thing. In the past years there been so many injustice courts sayings going on because of the unjust laws and I find being disobedient is really honorable to fight against that.

 

    In some cases disobedience is not always a good thing. For example disobedience isn’t an honorable thing when you’re breaking a law, that you shouldn’t of had broken in the first place. Also another example could be when you’re basically got in trouble for any reason at school and you start talking back to the teacher. In that case disobedience isn’t really an honorable thing to some people. It’s basically just split in half disobedience could be a good thing or not depending on how the person is doing it. If they’re doing it for a good reason or not.

 

Crucible Ending Rewrite

The Crucible – The new ending 

 

    I went into Reverend Parris room while having someone looking out to make sure that Parris is no longer close enough to see. I found his safe where he keeps all of his money and I took out all of the money inside of it. Thirty-three pounds. With the thirty-three pounds it was enough money for me and John Proctor to leave Salem. Once I have gotten all of the money I left the room and started walking towards where John Proctor was locked up in. There was nobody in sight, I decided to walk right into the cell.  It was pretty dark inside the cell so I grabbed a lantern and walk towards John.

 

    I only wanted to go see John, because that’s what I wanted. I wanted to have him to myself. “John, I have thirty-three pounds. That’s enough money for us to leave Salem right now. We can start a new life together.” I said to John. John looked up with his dirty face, being locked inside the cell I could tell he hadn’t seen anyone in awhile. He spoke very soft “I don’t wanna come with you Abigail. I wanna be with my wife, Elizabeth Proctor.” I got mad thinking about how he would rather die than come with me. “You’re going to die if you don’t come with me John, you wouldn’t see Elizabeth either way. Come with me, let’s start a new life together.” I said to him looking straight into his eyes in a serious tone. I had all of this plan to which John would finally become mine. I did anything for this man. It was filled with silence for a couple of minutes which seem to feel like forever until he spoke.  

    “Fine. I’ll go with Abigail Williams.” John said softly and I got very excited that finally agreed to come with me and leave Salem. I got up and went over to him and cuffed him from his chains. I helped John get up as he was having quite a bit of trouble trying to move. We waked out of the cell where Mercy was waiting for us. I had Mercy coming with us because of what could possibly happen to us if we stay here any longer. Me and Mercy both sense that everything would turn against us, because of all of the given false testimony in the courtroom. It could of resulted in the death of many innocent people that were accused and found guilty in the courtroom because of us. So me and Mercy both plan to leave tonight with John Proctor. We’re both afraid for our lives currently so we decided to leave Salem.

 

    “Are you ready to get on the ship Abigail?” Mercy asked as she came towards us and started helping me with John. “Yes, we’re all ready to go.” I confirm.  We rush as fast as we could and went to the ship. When we got there I went to the person standing there and paid him to let us go onto the ship. All three of us got onto the ship and felt much safer than we could of had felt if we decided to stay there. The ship started moving and we’re now leaving Salem. “I’m so glad you decided to come with me.” I said to John and he just looked at me. “I’m also glad I came with you Abigail.” John said to be later on. I smile and he smiled back at me.
    I can already tell that Parris had already seen that we’re missing and is probably already gone to the investigators trying to find us. They’re probably going crazy on a search party, I just laugh thinking about the whole situation back at Salem. It started pouring rain and I just looked at the open range of the ocean and just thought how pretty it looked. John was next to me the whole time and I layed my head on his shoulder. We were like that for awhile until the weather got really bad and we were in the middle of a huge storm. In this period of short time I couldn’t tell what was going on at all. I notice that I was no longer next to John I was push off the ship by the heavy waves and it was too powerful for me. I couldn’t do anything at all. I couldn’t move at all, I knew this was the end of my life. It wasn’t the was I plan the whole thing out.
