In The Outsiders, Johnny is introduced as an afraid, non-talkative, small, skinny, and child who has been broken emotionally. By the end of the story, Johnny becomes more aware of his surroundings, is braver and is not a sad little kid as he was introduced. He has also changed the way he looked at “fighting is solving problems”too,¨fighting is not good at solving problems¨. Johnny had never helped people in the beginning but in the end, he finds out that every life matters.
Her kindergarten teacher recognized her inability to stay focused compared to her peers. In first grade, Grace took longer to complete assignments, had a tendency to daydream, and had difficulty with paper and pencil tasks which was the most noticable in math. Her first and second grade teachers provided her with additional educational support through small group instruction, and she receives weekly instruction from the reading specialist. Finally, her scores on the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, Fourth Edition and Woodcock-Johnson III Tests of Achievement show she has deficits in the areas of Working Memory, Passage Comprehension and Math Fluency. Since information has been obtained by a variety of dependable sources, identifying Grace as a learning disable child is
1.) Johnny has several moments where his bravery in his character show. An obvious point about Johnny’s bravery is stabbing the Soc, Bob Sheldon. Johnny stabs Bob for an important reason, he needed to save Ponyboy from being drowned by the socs who jumped the two boys casually walking.
Dally wanted to die because johnny had died from the beam that had fallen on him when he was trying to help the little kids. Had he of not gone in the burning house he probably would have lived. But knowing Johnny he had to help. So all in all he died while trying to save someone in a house, burning with hot scorching flames that would probably burn anything in its way. I think he forgot to think about that he didn’t have to die right then to be with Johnny to know that he could be with him because Johnny would always be with him even though while in heaven. He was mainly focused on the fact that his best pal was now gone and somewhere where he could not see him at the time. So he committed suicide by going to a gas station and robbing the
N.E is a ten-year-old boy who attends 4th grade at North Bergen Elementary School. N.E is a very intelligent and creative boy that needs extra help to achieve his academic and social skills. He has little motivation for school achievement, with problems in independent reading, math and classroom behavior. He demonstrates a poor approach in working in a group, usually instead of working on assigned task, he talks to somebody when it is prohibited, playing with his hands or objects, making noises, calling out and looking around. The student gets easily frustrated and cries when he realizes he is having problems with his schoolwork, especially, in the subject of mathematics.
How can two characters that have such a similar lifestyle, be so extremely different? In the novel, The Outsiders by S.E Hinton, the author proves that such instances happen. Dallas Winston and Johnny Cade have very similar lives, but are completely different people. Johnny is more of a sensitive person and always likes to follow the rules. While Dallas on the other hand, loves to break the laws and do the wrong thing. These two characters are very similar on the inside, but are very different on the outside.
Even with the extra help, throughout some parts of his day, Andy still can’t concentrate and focus properly. Both Ms. King and Mr. Baker have noticed a change in Andy in three certain areas: his behavior inside the classroom during seemingly challenging moments, his social skills regarding him interacting and communicating healthily with his peers, and of course, his academic abilities. For example, quite often during a class read-aloud, Andy will often yell out phrases such as, “I don’t understand this book,” “where are we? I’m lost,” “this book is
Johnny’s first reason of prosecution is that he murdered Robert for reasons other than self defense. Evidence shows that Johnny explicitly said, “I didn’t mean to… but they were drowning you,…” (pg. 74). This quote shows that Johnny killed Robert only because they were drowning Ponyboy, not because they were hurting him. Johnny’s second reason for prosecution is that he used a weapon. Evidence shows that Ponyboy tells us, “Johnny’s hand went to his back pocket and I remembered his switchblade.” (pg.54). This quote shows that Johnny used his switchblade when he shouldn’t have. He shouldn’t have used it because violence is never the answer and because he shouldn’t have been carrying the weapon in his pocket anyways. The last reason Johnny should
Consistent with classroom performance, testing indicates that Tyler is currently performing below grade level in reading and math. In the classroom setting, he shows difficulty processing information. Tyler’s teacher observes that he has trouble understanding concepts and learns at a slower rate. His performance is noted to improve when he is placed in a small group
Often has difficulty organizing task and activities. (Joey is often described as “off task” and having difficulty returning to school prepared with his materials, and turning his work in the right places.)
He demonstrates poor grammar and low reading skills, he is able to do simple arithmetic calculations, can think abstractly, and can follow simple instructions. He is typically oriented to where she is at, whom she is with, and what time it is although he was slightly disoriented when we spoke about his friends and parents. No noticeable deficits in his ability to recall information from various points in time were observed. Overall, he shows the ability to think rationally and make good judgments in regards to decision making.
Researchers say that doing something good for others may lengthen your life (National Geographic Channel). In The Outsiders by S.E Hinton three of the main characters in the the novel; Ponyboy, Johnny, and Dally,did exactly that and did something good for others and could be considered a hero because of the many bold actions they have made. A hero is a person who is greatly admired for his bravery, achievements, and courage; I think all of these descriptions match up to to 3 of these main characters, Johnny, Dally, and Ponyboy.
In Johnny’s entire struggle against his disease, he never faltered or lost the will to continue living life to the best he could. Reason was essentially the spark that kept Johnny going, to keep him curious about his condition, to motivate him to continue his studies and experiments. For a good fifteen months, he had been transferred from his home to multiple hospitals, yet he saw each visit or operation as a mere distraction from his studies rather than one step closer towards his imminent death. I agree with the quote that the story is focused on the struggle between reason and disruption. In the span of the book, I did not seem to pick up on reason versus violence, but after thinking about it, I concluded that this could mean how the disease
