To begin his long journey, Santiago meets a wise old king name King Melchizedek. He is in a local market when the king walks up and asks Santiago what he is reading. The king continues to say that the book he is reading is important but irritating because it describes the characters inability to choose their own Personal Legend. When Santiago asks where this mysterious stranger is from, King Melchizedek replies with “I am from many places, but I was born in Salem as I am the king there” (Coelho 64). Accepting his statement as true, Santiago continues the conversation allowing them to eventually talk about his dream of the Pyramids. The king wants to help Santiago, but for a price of six sheep. Before leaving with Santiago’s sheep he shares, “’The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world, and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon’” (Coelho 32). His message to Santiago reminds him that by following his dream he will witness beautiful sights and people, but that he should always remember the purpose of his travels. Leaving it at that, the king pointed Santiago in the direction to follow his dream.

In Chapter 2 of Thank You for Arguing by Jay Heinrichs, he discuses how to distinguish the difference between an argument and a fight, and to decide what you want out of an argument. The key point of an argument is to win over the audience to your point of view. In order to win an argument, you need to persuade them. You want your opponent to be persuaded using subtle logical tactics not power and intimidation. Using power and intimidation is the characteristics of a fight. This is when one person takes out his aggression on another, which does not persuade them but initiate’s revenge or rejection. During a fight, the key objective is to win by attacking and belittling your opponent, paying no attention to getting them to change their mind.

Chapter 25 discusses the United States and the Second World War from 1939-1945. The United States wanted to stay out of international affairs but the newly elected Roosevelt advocated for an active role in it. Though he wanted a role in this, his priority was to attack the domestic causes of the depression which appealed to many poor Americans who were suffering from the Great Depression and had just lost everything. During this time, fascist governments threatened military aggression and the rise of Hitler created a controversial and war-like atmosphere. Hitler had a goal to avenge the defeat of WW1 which lead to the accusations of Jews, and the eventual full-blown Holocaust. Neutrality acts were put into place during this time to prohibit the exchange of arms to nations during the war.
The first piece of writing was called “Two Questions” by Lynda Barry. The visual story is about a girl who finds it hard to make quality stories like she uses to. She gets very stressed out and overwhelmed. She feels that people negatively judge when she makes a “bad” writing piece. So, she stops. Then, one day she feels that she wants to start writing and drawing again. She then realizes that its okay to become stressed out by writing and that it's apart of the process. With that in mind she embraces it and gets her writing mojo back. I think that the visual story tries to convey the theme of never giving up on writing. This story speaks clearly to confused English students.

Chapter one of the Founding Brothers commences during the time after the American Revolution, when the unfledged nation was still in its infancy. This is the only chapter that is out of chronological order. A duel, often coded as an interview, was an outlawed event between gentlemen that used one-on-one combat to settle disputes and protect honor. That being said, Colonel Aaron Burr challenged General Alexander Hamilton to a duel that consequently resulted in the death of his opponent. Ellis addresses that the reason that Burr initiated the duel is because “ Hamilton had been libeling him through their crisscrossing careers in public life”(para. 30) and furthermore, that Hamilton couldn’t back out because if he did his reputation would be tainted.
