The plan to release the divergent population was spoiled when the Eurite leader, Jeanine Matthews, found out about the Abnegation’s alliance with the Bureau and the Abnegation’s plan to tell the truth to the factions. Jeanine became allies with the Dauntless leader, Eric, to install a microchip into the brains of the Dauntless soldiers to manipulate them to kill all Abnegation leaders and citizens and gain control of the city. What they were not expecting was for the divergent to be immune to the simulation surem. Tris awoke to find everyone acting remote like to which she figured to imitate their movements. The soldiers were taken to the Abnegation
The faction you choose defines you more than anything else does. Tris was confronted with two choices: stay with her family in Abnegation, where she grew up or move to another faction and start anew. Despite the fact that her aptitude test was inconclusive, she picks Dauntless in light of the fact that she feels it will allow herself to find her identity. Upon choosing Dauntless her bravery naturally begins to develop, but she encounters some other changes as well. Tris forges friendships and relationships central to her identity, with people who bring out the best in her. This gives her a sense of belonging and instead of being perceived as an outcast because of her divergence, she gains many friendships. By the end of the novel, she is fully aware of herself as Divergent - someone who does not fit in or belong, but who cannot be controlled. The events toward the end of the novel underline who Tris has been - considerate - and who she wants to become - dauntless. Divergent places huge importance on coming to terms with your identity and belonging, furthermore, at last, Tris acknowledges that she will never fit perfectly anywhere; and she must form her own pathway through her own
Tris goes to the dining hall to talk to her friends. They talk about their fears. The rankings are shown, and Tris is #1 on the list. Molly and Drew did horribly, so they are now factionless. Tris and Four go public. Then Tris realizes that the serum is what will allow the Erudite to control the Dauntless.
Tris has never really felt at home in Abnegation so she switches to Dauntless. Normally this would not be so harsh on her family, but her only brother also switches to another faction called Erudite leaving her parents with no family within Abnegation. This is Tris’s first betrayal and it makes her very guilty. After the choosing ceremony each faction goes through its own initiation. For Dauntless, the initiates must jump off a building in order to enter the compound. Generally the first jumper is a Dauntless born, but Tris is brave enough to go
When a person hits a certain age, they had to choose the faction they wanted to be in. Once chosen, they could not take it back. This shows a sign of power over the people by forcing them into division. For Tris, it seemed like fun at first, she chose Dauntless and was learning the way. She was then told that if anyone did not pass the test, they would get kicked out and they would have to live factionless since they could not go back home. This puts things into perspective for Tris as she is now realizing that things are not a game. Nobody was told that information until they already picked their faction. This is another clue on how hard of a hold the government has on all of the factions. Jeanine Matthews is the head of Erudite, and injected a serum into the Dauntless people so they would execute all the people a part of Abnegation. The serum controls anyone injected. Government control is so heavy in the movie, and so many people are afraid to do anything about
Gives the great opportunity to people to build carrier for future value and increase the knowledge level on education learning
The system creates a social atmosphere that shapes the people to think they should belong to one absolute faction. They say, “follow the virtue that the faction you choose follows”. If the people cannot pass the initiation test, they will become frictionless which is the lowest status in the society. On page 442, Tris thinks. ‘I feel like someone breathed fresh air into my lungs. I am not abnegation. I am not Dauntless. I am divergent.’ Like this quote says, Tris is neither abnegation nor Dauntless. She is divergent, doing not belong to a distinct faction. However, due to the communal atmosphere that one should be part of a distinct group, Tris has always tried to be pure dauntless since her choosing day. She decides to deny her own identity rather than being faction-less. This quote shows how she has finally decided to accept her personal identity, and now she be aware that she will never go to belong entirely no matter how hard she tries even though that is different from the society’s expectation. However, we can notice that this had taken a lot of time because she does not only accept change at first place. Because she declares in her mind about her identity, this shows how this has grown up to be a challenging process. Trish had a great confusion in her mind when she wishes to be dauntless, because her side of abnegation comes out and hinders her to be a pure Dauntless. However, another factor
When Tris was apart of the initiates, Four told me she was the first person to jump, which shocked everyone; normally initiates from Abnegation, or ‘stiffs,’ as other factions call them, jump first very rarely. When Four helped Tris off the net, he said the Tris stared him at such an intriguing way, and that she did very often. After he took Tris and the rest of the initiates on a tour of Dauntless, they went to dinner; Tris and her friend sat next to Four, which creeped him out at first, but found it somewhat amusing. The next day, Four took them on a train to the border of the faction and showed them what it looked like. Four noticed Tris was staring at his arms the whole ride, which made him assume that Tris was super intrigued and captivated by
They must go through the scariest obstacle course ever. They go into other people’s fears. Tris finds out that Four is an Abnegation transfer. And his real name was Tobias; he was Tris’s dad’s co- worker’s son. She also discovers that Four in fact does like her. They share to each other’s the tattoos that they have which are very personal. After that the rankings are displayed and Tris gets number one. Molly and her sidekick Drew scored so low that they were kicked out of the faction. Later that night, Tris sees everyone is sleeping with guns. They all got onto the train and went towards the Abnegation headquarters. They started killing people. And Eric tries to kill Four. But Tris jumped in front of Four and got her shoulder shot. After that Tris finds out that her mother died. Tris tries to figure out why everyone is sleep walking and she has to shut off a main computer. Tris frees Four and finds out he is Divergent too. Four also sees his abusive father. Then the whole Dauntless group gets on the train. And they find new homes with
The greatest power that anyone can have in this fantasy land is being divergent. Being divergent makes Tris Prior one lucky girl. She has the power to be stronger and more capable of fighting and protecting herself than everyone else that is not divergent. This universe includes five factions that people are put into based on their aptitude tests with people that are divergent being outliers. If someone is classified under two or more factions then they are divergent. After finding out that she is divergent, Tris continues to think of her family and starts to believe that she was born in the wrong faction.
This book is Four’s life before he met Tris, and when the meets Tris. So us readers get to see what life was like in Dauntless. We don’t really get to experience the jobs that they get after they become Dauntless because Eric and Candor decide to destroy Abnegation. The beginning of the book makes me consider how bad Four’s dad really was. Training was also interesting to see from another person’s perspective. We get to see Four’s struggle while he was training. No one helped him pass training even though he was Divergent. We also get to see how Four wants to leave Dauntless and become Factionless but then Tris comes along and he instantly falls in love with her and stays. There is one part of the book that becomes interesting. In Divergent, Tris does all of the combat fighting first. And in Four, they do fear landscapes first because they were trying something different. But the Dauntless don’t do experiments, they just want someone to manipulate. The main people of Dauntless and Jeanine become aware of things that they shouldn’t be aware of. Making a pawn means they want someone that is young because they are easier to ‘shape and mold’. It’s like creating someone that will help them make Dauntless the way that they want it to

On the other hand, criterion-referenced tests gather information about the students’ progress or accomplishments in relation to a specific criteria (Gottlieb, 2006). These tests are designed to show how students achieve in comparison to standards, usually state standards. In other words, these tests evaluate what students are expected to know and be able to do at a specific time, so the students will demonstrate if they have met the standards. One of the advantages of these tests is that teachers can plan based on the student’s needs. Each state is in charge of developing their own standards for each subject area. Examples of these assessments are the Stanford Achievement Test and the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (DeVries, 2011).
The first chapter introduced me to the various roles within OT. This includes activities that are meaningful to a client. So, not only is OT helping with a problem, such as a broken wrist, but it also helps break that down into different aspects that are utilized to regain function through tasks. I didn’t realize how much, or the depth OT actually went, and how many occupations there were to cover. This chapter introduced me to just how diverse the clientele are in OT, and how much creativity with a holistic approach in activities is used to help in a client’s therapeutic treatment. This chapter made me look positively toward my future in OT, with promise of it being a rewarding journey.
