Sathyapriya Saravanan Wilkinson English 10 Honors; Period 1 4 November 2016 Everyone Wears One: Masks in Lord of the Flies “We all have a social mask, right? We put it on, we go out, put our best foot forward, our best image. But behind that social mask is a personal truth, what we really, really believe about who we are and what we 're capable of” (Phil McGraw) one once said. In Lord of the Flies the characters wear a social mask that opposes their true feelings. Written by William Golding, the story revolves around a group of boys who become stranded on an island and must depend on themselves to survive. They elect a chief, a boy named Ralph. However, as the story progresses, the group become influenced by Jack, an arrogant choir chapter boy. Intriguingly, although they desire to be with Jack and join his tribe, the boys remain with Ralph for most of the story. The rhetorical triangle, which analyzes a speaker or writer based on three ideas- ethos, pathos, and logos-, helps many to better understand the children’s actions and mentality; ethos focuses on the credibility and ethics of the speaker while pathos concerns how the speaker appeals to the emotions of the audience and logos is about the speaker’s use of evidence to appeal to the audience’s sense of reason. The boys stay with Ralph because of Ralph’s use of ethos but prefer to be with Jack because of Jack’s use of pathos and ethos which shows Golding’s message- humans were masks.
‘The Spider-Man’ (the movie) is also a journey filled with adventure, thrill, excitement, making possible the impossible, conquering hearts and, performing feats which are best left to Dream Land, the world of fantasy.
Our first activity is The Cotton Ball Race. For this Team Building Activity (which we will demonstrate in class) you will need to split into even teams. First off you will put out four paper plates, two of which will be filled with cotton balls, and the other two with
Entering Monday night’s matchup with the shorthanded Memphis Grizzlies, Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue knew his team would have a challenge in front of them. The Grizzlies were without key players Mike Conley, Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol, while also missing four other players from their regular rotation. Lue, however, knew the contest with Memphis would be no walk in the park.
And with that said I run, dropping the bag of ice and completely forgetting about Flich. That’s the first place they’ll check for me. The only option I have is to escape this building and make a sprint for the well. Now, I really wish I hadn’t hid that gun under my bed and had kept it on me.
A bunch of boys, some being young, the oldest being around 14, have been stranded on an island with no one knowing where they are. They have to try their best to survive and get rescued so they can get off the island. But then again, they are boys and not everyone gets along, no matter how bad the situation. The boys in the book Lord of the Flies by William Golding portrays this. With all of the boys getting along, somewhat, and being on the same page, how did the situation get so bad? How could mainly three boys make decisions so bad it would lead to violence? Should not their priorities be the same, to get off the island?
It’s a torrid, high-tempo read that will instantly became a favorite. While the early going of the story is a bit slower, the story really erupts and doesn’t slow down once the Games begin. The arena (a massive, thick, forested environment) is described in rich detail, and is where the contestants will spend several weeks fighting, battling to see who will make it safely home. The characters, while somewhat cliched for the category, are very dependable in their
Embark on an adventure wherein you save the world and make lives better by solving numerous puzzles.
All Natalie could see was the endless forest of tall redwood trees in every direction. The sun glistened just over the horizon, turning the sky the dark orange color of sunset. Feeling overwhelmingly alone, she looked down at her light brown tabby cat, Merlin. He was fairly small, with paws
Heavy in the air was the scent of cherries and bourbon, the smell of a man more desperate of atmosphere and above all most desperate of a scene. A man whose breath heavily weighed the air around him searching for the laughter of all wealthy men gathered to assume his drunkedness and take heart to the fact that he so presently was just as they were; drunk and bored. Fairly as it must be said it is in wealth when one possesses the ability to have so much that no matter what they seek it shall never meet the expectations of a heaven set dream... Tied to a hell bound scene with their heads finding heaven. But oh how it made for a remarkable conversation at the club Versa. The man with the scent of bourbon and cherries at his lips held a cigar lightly against the table. With every bad habit at his grasp, and death wearing down beneath his eyes, he was rather much like a tragic painting. As you would see it beside the reaper himself, the men sitting around the round glass table recalled him to be lord Sinvent. The young men recalled him as nothing as their eyes fixated upon so little. Caught between the curse of childhood forbade innocence... And the greater purpose of man... Asking only to play the cards. Tossing their coins the the experienced man and talking of wit, in less drunken spiels. There was one boy...lest I say a boy... There was one human, fairly striking, who sat poised against the wall in a tilting chair. Like any good story he saw all of that room. Asking only
The story that I believe had the most effective plot structure would be The Bicycle by Jillian Horton. The first reason I believe this is that the story was the longest one out of the other ones read in class. This means that the author had more space to position the introduction, rising action, climax, falling action and the conclusion in spots that made sense. After reading this short story I found that I understood what happen better than other stories I have read in class. The second reason I believe this story had the most effective plot is the introduction to the story. The introduction gets right to the point introducing all of the characters and describing the setting to the readers. In the short story the narrator named Hannah tells
Adventure game enthusiasts all revere Al Lowe as royalty. He created, among others, the fantastic Leisure Suit Larry games (more on that later). Torin's Passage is a far tamer effort compared to his more known work. Released in 1995 by Sierra-Online. Torin's Passage has beautiful cartoony graphics and fully-voice dialogue. According to King Lowe, the game was apparently inspired by the Robin Williams smash hit Mrs. Doubtfire (http://verbosity.wiw.org/issue7/allowe.html).
I can identify the main idea or theme of the chapters 1-5 in the book Lord of the flies. The author of Lord of the flies, William Golding, develops the main idea or theme throughout the story. Throughout the story William Golding demonstrates the main idea or theme by leaving hints or clues like when he wrote about the boys being stranded on the island by themselves, so they have to hunt for their own food to survive until they are rescued. As the main idea develops, the boys use Piggy’s specs to create a fire that makes smoke to signal any ships. The fire was left unattended as a ship was passing. Some key ideas that the author William Golding, introduces are the fire, shelter, and hunting, all of these techniques will help the boys survive
