“Do you really know the real reason behind Wonder Woman?” The Secret History of Wonder Woman was written by American historian Jill Lepore. The book was published in 2014 by the Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group. The type of book is a biography that focuses on the life of William Moulton Marston and his companions, as well as feminism and birth control. The book briefly summarizes women’s struggles as they act against mankind for what they stand for, with the contribution of developing the super heroine, Wonder Woman. In Jill Lepore’s compelling work, Wonder Woman’s story is the missing link in the struggle for women’s rights, starting with the women’s suffrage campaigns of the early 1900s and concludes with the problematic setting of
The most important lesson for Rachel that comes out of this situation is that after wearing the disgusted sweater she has become even older, and it was tied to the experience instead of the birthday itself. She understands that it is the challenge she needs to grow up faster as she will receive additional benefits of behaving the way she wants and resisting to the outside irritators. As for the literature techniques, the author applies language, diction and symbolism to reveal the issues of experience, aging, knowledge, power, authority and freedom. The discovering is gaining age are conveyed with the help of the memories of eleven-year-old girl on her birthday. Rachel resists her humiliation from Mrs. Pierce, and that is the exact moment when her “smart eleven” comes as well.
In the book called, “Wonder,” by R.J Palacio, I thought of the supporting character Summer. To be brief, Summer is a nice girl that helps August, a deformed boy transition to 5th grade. Summer is almost like a hero to August, because she was his motivation to get through 5th grade and not to mention, they are best friends. If the author decided not to add Summer into the book, the book would not be as interesting. For say, Summer made August go to events that he didn’t want to go to, and the events added new elements of suspense and happiness into the book. August would have most likely QUIT 5th grade if it weren’t for Summer guiding him and telling him he was just like the other kids. Summer adds a touch of happiness,and excitement into the
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate -- we can not consecrate -- we can not hallow -- this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here.
How rude do you think some people can be? In the book Wonder, by R.J Palacio there is a boy named Julian and he is one of the meanest boys in the whole 5th grade. Julian is so mean to others, that on the first day of school for a boy named August, Julian bullied him. It was August’s first day of school ever because he was homeschooled by his mom. He has a facial deformity and does not want other people to make fun of him and all Julian is trying to do is make August want to go back to being home schooled.
In part six of RJ Palacio's realistic fiction novel Wonder, it shows the theme that new things are great so you should take risks and live on the edge because you only live once. One example of the theme is when August is starting to lose his hearing and has to go to a special doctor. August has always hated the doctor's office because it brings back terrible memories like all 27of his face surgeries. He also thinks that by getting hearing aids it gives people another reason to make fun of him. “ Ever since I was little, the doctors told my parents that someday I would need hearing aids.
Throughout the story “Eleven” by Sandra Cisneros, Rachel is recalling an event that took place on her eleventh birthday. In the beginning of the story, Rachel looks at birthdays in a negative perspective. “And when you wake up on your eleventh birthday you expect to feel eleven, but you don’t.” Rachel also mentions how when you are eleven, you are also the ages that lead up to eleven. When saying this, Rachel repeats the word “and.” She uses repetition when talking about how all your ages are still living inside you. “When you’re eleven, you’re also ten, and nine, and eight, and seven, and six, and five, and four, and three, and two, and one.” In the beginning of the story, Rachel does not seem excited that it is her birthday. I say this because instead of rejoicing that it is her birthday, she faces the reality of it and
Because of all this, this quote is an extended metaphor for how people sometimes become more appreciated and alive after their life has come to an end, somewhat the definition of a legacy.
Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance next time”. This following quote represents that failing can give you motivation for something, like how Malcolm X did in the black civil rights movement. Not only Malcolm X reflected on this, but the other civil rights activists had to go through years in prison, signs, and non-stop slavery. they stood their ground on freedom and tried even harder to earn it when failing to.
In the novel “Wonder” by R.J. Palacio, the author chooses to write the first part of the story from August point of view to help the readers try to understand what it's like to be deformed and set a tone for the upcoming events in the book. August has major self consciousness, for example he realizes no one is sitting with him at lunch yet and thinks about how he looks when he eats “I eat like a tortoise [...] some prehistoric swamp thing” (Palacio 50). This proves that August cares about what he looks like and has low expectations for himself. Even though friends and family view August as a strong individual he still pictures himself as disabled. August s sitting down in class and he hears Jack Will talking “Tushman just told me to
“Everybody, regardless of who we are, what we look like, how we act and how or got bullied, will shine.” This thesis statement relates to the book, Wonder, by R.J. Palacio. The craft move that the author puts in is dialogue.
This section comments about leaving a legacy behind but more than leaving wealth and good and properties the author refers to a different type of legacy. Refers to the intimate legacy the value of life we leave behind. What we have been, what will people remember us by, what are we leaving behind. We leave behind our attitude, values and believes.

A collection of one or more sentences have the ability to cement the reputation of a figure in history. While that may seem daunting, it is simply true. From ancient to modern times, the most influential historical figures earned their place because of their words. The reason we talk is in order to be heard. No matter the ridiculousness of what we say, we do not get the choice on whether those words remain in the memory of individuals. Quotes become famous because someone took the time to look at them and decide that these words deserve to be heard. Whether these words appear on a national monument or in the memory of your closest friend, they have the ability to be memorable.
