“‘Robert, what are you doing?’ Mr. Ross asked. ‘Mr. Ross, I’m your bodyguard,’ Robert announced” The mood of this part of the novel is confused. I am completely baffled that students like Robert have taken the wave so far as to wanting to be a bodyguard for the teacher that started The Wave. This is very confusing to me and left me thinking about how weird The Wave has become.
“She still couldn’t put into words exactly what bothered her about The Wave, but she could feel it growing inside her. Something was wrong. The anonymous letter was a symptom It wasn’t only that a senior tried to bully a junior into joining The Wave. It was more-- the fact that the junior hadn’t put his name on the letter, the fact that he had been afraid to… The …show more content…
“‘I pledge to fight The Wave until the end. Give me liberty or give me acne!’” This is obviously alluding to the famous quote said by Patrick Henry at the Second Virginia Convention during the American Revolution: “Give me liberty or give me death!”
“‘Is everybody forgetting who they are. It’s like the Night of the Living Dead or something’”. This is alluding to the 1968 science fiction film Night of the Living Dead. This is also a simile because it is comparing everybody forgetting who they actually are to The Night of the Living Dead.
“‘Because it means that no one is better than anyone else for once,’ Amy said. ‘Because ever since we became friends all I’ve ever done is try to compete with you and be like you. But now I don’t feel like I have to have a boyfriend on the football team like you. And if I don’t want to, I don’t have to get the same grades you get, Laurie. For the first time in three years i feel like I don’t have to keep up with Laurie Saunders and people will still like me’”. To me, the mood of this quote is sympathetic. Anyone can feel sympathy for Amy in this situation. Even though i don’t like The Wave, I understand that Amy is finally equal to Laurie and everyone else with the Wave, and she doesn’t want laurie to expose the truth and end something that she’s been wanting for three years.
“They were parked near the all-night tennis courts because david knew that when Laurie came home from school after dark, she always took this route, where the
Many children are told growing up to always go with your gut instincts because if you feel in your heart that something is wrong, it most likely is. Similarly, Laurie a highschool student struggles to choose to go with their gut and follow her heart during crucial issues that occur in her high school life. In the novel, The Wave, Todd Strasser uses dialogue, revealing actions, and symbolism throughout the story to support the theme of trusting your gut and never being afraid to do the right thing. Through Laurie heated arguments, character revealing actions, and ability to understand the significance of the salute, Todd Strasser beautifully illustrates the theme of the story.
Rogue Wave was written by Theodore Taylor that was a fictional story that was meant to entertain. Flight of Icarus was written by Sally Benson as a fictional myth that was meant to teach you. Women of Aviation was written by Patricia and Fredrick Mckissack as a nonfiction article to inform. In collections 1, all of the characters and real people faced challenges fearlessly. I Rogue Wave, Scoot and Sully went on a journey without adults and survive a giant wave. In Flight of Icarus, Daedalus and Icarus had to escape the tower and survive the flight. In Women in Aviation, Bessie Coleman and Harriet Quimby had to overcome sexism and racism in order to earn there pilot's license.
'Give me liberty or give me death.' These famous words were uttered by Patrick Henry on March 23, 1775, as a conclusion to his speech delivered to the Virginia House of Burgesses. Within his speech, he uses the three rhetorical appeals (ethos, logos, and pathos) to convey a feeling of urgency toward the changes occurring in policy within the Americas implemented by the British government. He cleverly uses these appeals to disrupt the paradigm that Great Britain is going to let the American people have any liberty.
An important idea in The Wave is ‘words can be used for harm or for good’. This idea means that words can be used to hurt people mentally and create bad things, but, at the same time can cheer a person up and change their life in a good way. The confusing thing is, is that good words can also be bad. For example, if someone said that they won their basketball game and you said ‘good’, then that would be a good thing to say. It’s also quite the same with harmful words. In The Wave, this conundrum is used in a smart way. For example, Ben Ross is taking his first class with The Wave as a base when he introduces the line,
The Wave is a story about a high school senior class that has been intrigued to join their teacher’s cult known as the Wave. Several people tried to prevent the denial of his movement. Laurie Saunders the main character in the wave, is a rebellious girl who is very ashamed of this movement and is not inspired by her history teacher. He shows them a very emotional video of what Adolf Hitler and the Nazi party did. Some of the students take it more personal than others do. Because of Laurie’s bravery, independence, and determination, Laurie denies the Wave.
This unit does not introduce much new material. Instead, we expect you to integrate technical and theoretical knowledge acquired from study across your degree. We refer to two frameworks that may support you in carrying out this integration:
In order to downgrade the actions by the English government, Henry describes them to be “implements of war and subjugation” as they “darken our land” and “cover our waters.” He uses an appeal to logos infused with emotion to depict to his fellow committee why America needs to fight against Britain because they are imminent. Summarizing his speech, Henry ends with his most memorable demand: “give me liberty or give me death!” These final words portray Henry’s dedication to his country and his willingness to fight to the death. Henry appeals to pathos through his intensity and patriotism that place fear in his colonists to want to fight for independence against Britain rather than
“Give me liberty or give me death!” is an iconic American quote that invokes feelings of patriotism and pride, still to this day. Patrick Henry, a Virginian lawyer, first spoke these words in his speech to the Virginia Convention in 1775, while trying to coerce the assembly to retaliate against British occupation of America. In his speech, he uses three rhetorical appeals to get the convention to gather an army.
Reflecting on this course over this semester, there have been many lessons learned that will be valuable, as we enter the business world. Our first lesson was to learn to work together, as a team, to prepare a short memo, long memo, letter, and email for use in the business world. This is a lesson that will experience many times as we do our daily work. Punctuation and grammar are so important to present to the client and other organizations that we are professionals. It could mean the loss of a sale or acquiring new business. It’s like dressing for work; looking professional or unprofessional.
He felt almost as if he were coming out of a trance. What had possessed him these last few days that could cause him to do something so stupid?” This quote shows me that David is in shock. He got frightened by his own actions. He no longer had a voice to speak for himself. The Wave was pushing him to fulfill certain actions. He then realizes that The Wave has possessed him to do certain things he would never even think about. He hurt his own girlfriend, the one he loved, in the name of The Wave. At this moment, both Laurie and David agree that The Wave has to end before anyone else gets hurt. Even though this was a classroom experiment, they now both perceive that it is causing harm in many ways. People are losing their individuality and are relying on The Wave to make the choices and actions for them. David obviously did not mean to do this, which is why it is obvious that The Wave has gotten out of
This essay is a reflective essay on my learning development from a young age through to my current position as a University Student.

Paz describes the wave’s insatiable appetite for attention and understanding in an almost unimaginable way. He gives the wave a personality all her own as if to point out that no emotions like hers exist in the human realm. Water is in constant motion and becomes riled when attacked by wind and lightening. It reacts and becomes tempestuous and the reader can see where the wave might resemble a human woman. But she is reactionary at best and tries their relationship.
