Caring Billy
In were The Red Fern Grows, Billy loves his family so much, that he walks two days to the city to get himself some dogs and he trains them very well and enters them in the hunt and win a lot money so he can let his mom’s dream come true of moving to the city. So Billy’s the kind of person who will go out of his way to make his family happy.
One example Billy would risk his life every single day by staying up most of the night in pure darkness. Billy went to the city to get dogs, to train them very well, so he trained his dogs every single day so he could enter them in the hunt, so he could win money so his mom could pursue her dreams of moving to the city Another example is Billy risked his life by walking two days to the city and while he was walking he almost got killed by a panther. Billy new his mom and dad wouldn’t want him to walk two days to the city and almost get killed by a panther, but he walked to the city anyway to win money for his mom. A final example is again Billy risked his life in the hunt from possibly being killed by a wild animal or he could have frozen to death. Billy would dedicate his time to train his dogs so they could learn how to hunt and bring in the big bucks. Even though Billy doesn’t always do the right thing it’s mostly for his family and he would do anything for his family. So he’s the type of person who will go out of his way to make his family happy I knew this because when he said to his dogs “look I know this is hard but I’m doing this for momma just please keep moving”.

Film Noir and Romance: It’s No Fairy Tale Baby

...Film Noir and Romance: It’s No Fairy Tale Baby Film Noir may not seem like a very romantic subject considering how many of the couples in the films are eventually lead into their death or a prison term. There are some romantic aspects to these type of cinema. Even if a couple does have a tragic end, there is always some sort of romance in the middle. It could be lust or love, but it is usually there. While all Film Noir never ends as fairy tale, an audience can look at most of the films and see how love, or lust, can drive people to do despicable acts of crime. Before describing how romance and the many varying types of love appear in Film Noir, it is important to understand the different gender roles each character plays. The male protagonist paired with a femme fatale is the usual leading roles in a Film Noir, but that isn’t a hard set rule. Men can play the male victim, damaged men, a private eye, a psychopath, or a homme fatal, (Spicer 85). Women can also play a variety of roles such as the nurturer, the good-bad girl, the female victim, or a femme fatale, (Spicer 90). Male victims can be a protagonist who just gets trapped in the web of lies weaved by a beautiful woman, a femme fatale. The damaged man is usually a veteran who has a hard time adjusting to society after war or a police officer who loses control. After seeing so much violence it is hard for some men to see the world as a happy place. These men are usually paired with a nurturing female character. A......

...threatened. When a student does not feel safe and secure in his or her classroom, he or she is less likely to succeed. Not only do teachers have to prepare and teach lessons, they also need to be able to recognize the misbehavior and control it in a timely and professional manner. Teachers set the example for students and students can learn just as much from the example being set. A teacher can stop the disruption and use it as a teaching moment for the students. Having an action plan with consequences in place that is consistently followed is important. Many management theories have been studied and used; one that has shown to be effective when used is Canter’s management Cycle. Case Study: Billy is a nine year old male student at Finley Farms elementary school in Gilbert AZ.

Belonging Speech

...use of literary techniques; and focus on a changing Identity as a base for belonging. All texts have significantly different perspectives of belonging and identity. Edward yearns to belong and become part of society’s conformity and routine, whereas Billy aspires to a life of solitude and self-reliance and Matilda tries to belong somewhere in her life. Billy is a misfit in high school, having no significant relationships and a heartless abusive father, the ‘old bastard’. Before he embarks on journey for belonging, it is evident that he lacks a sense of belonging at home and in his community. Billy describes his home house as ‘Deadbeat no hoper shithole lonely downtrodden house in Long lands road, Nowheresville’. This string of informal negative description emphasizes Billy’s emotional isolation and dislocation within his community. His missing sense of belonging gives him the identity of an outcast, which proves belonging or not belonging greatly influences an individuals’ identity. Billy’s escape from his town, Nowheresville to Bendarat coincides with his discovery of relationships, acceptance and nourishment from strangers. Herrick has used the characterization of Billy’s father figures to portray his desire to belong. When Billy first escapes his town, and we first...

Public Resource Analysis

...Public Resource Analysis The main character in the book, Saving Bernice: Battered Women, Welfare, and Poverty, Bernice had been a victim of domestic violence from a very young age. Bernice grew up in a troubled home where neither of her parents set an example for Bernice or her siblings, which every good parent would want to set for their kids. In this analysis, the public resources available in Walla Walla, WA, will be connected to Bernice’s situation. This analysis will relate several situations in which Bernice could have used the resources from this town, and how she could have been helped. Although these institutions aim to help battered women, and their children, they offer many services but by no means are they perfect. Every institution has their strengths and their weaknesses, all of which will be exposed throughout this public resource analysis. In Walla Walla, there are five main sources of help for women who are going through the same horrid situations as Bernice. Some of these institutions offer similar services, but they are all different entities. One of the most important resources is the Domestic Violence Emergency Shelter Programs and Advocacy Services. This service is an only service that provides victims with the names of shelters in their area, some include the address, but they all include a phone number and a website where the victim may look up more information. Although this resource is not a physical service, the strength of this source is that...

Glass Castle

...Regarding the Walls Family Children Every child deserves a warm and caring family. These days, many children are left in abused and neglected families that affect their life afterwards. I believe it is the duty of Child Protective Services to give children the best environment in which to succeed and grow, to evaluate the situation and develop plan for the family while their parents demonstrate that they love their children, their shortcomings as parents outweigh their good intentions. In Jeannette Wall’s memoir The Glass Castle, she talks about her childhood and life, her parents Rex and Mary Walls, her two sisters, Lori and Maureen, and her brother Brian. According to her memoir, Walls family is very different from others families. They are free spirited; moving from town to town, experiencing exciting adventures, using different approaches of teaching their kids, while looking for help from others despite their rough life. The Walls family presents a difficult challenge to me, as the family dynamic is such that a case can be made both for and against the removal of the children from the parents' custody, but Rex and Rose Mary Walls have subjected their children to a host of questionable situations as they have moved about the country in a transitory lifestyle that I cannot consider permissible for the development of healthy children. As an agent of CPS I cannot in good conscience recommend that Lori, Jeanette, Brian, and Maureen Walls remain in the custody of their......

How Is Prior Developed for the Reader? Pat Barker Regeneration

...How is Prior developed for the reader? There was a distinct difference in attitudes to class during World War One, and this is seen in Pat Barkers’ presentation of Billy Prior. Upper, working and lower classes viewed each social class with contempt, which lead to tension at the home front, and Barker presents Prior to show these tensions. Prior reflects the middle class views of this time period, as well as portraying the different relationships between different social classes. We first meet Prior in chapter 5 when Rivers is introduced to the new patient in the hospital who has a rude attitude and refuses to speak for his speech ‘comes and goes’, “it was unlike Sister Rogers to take a dislike to a patient”. Prior comes across as angry, stubborn and blunt as he writes in block capitals giving short and straightforward responses such as “I DON’T REMEMBER”. Suggesting he maybe thinks he does not belong at the hospital, or that he is there for the wrong reason. There is tension between Prior and Rivers as they both seek for authority, this can be seen when Rivers corrects a misspelling Prior had made, “Two I’s in “Physically”, Mr Prior”. The fight for superiority continues as Rivers “not roughly, but firmly” puts the tea spoon to the back of Prior’s throat, making his eyes water, but more importantly, Prior “tried” to “push River’s hand away”. The reader knows Prior wants superiority as he is described to have a “supercilious expression” on his face. Prior struggles with......

Billy Ansel Dark or Light

...Joshua Biship James Mense English 102 05 October 2014 Billy Ansel: Dark or Light? In the book, The Sweet Hereafter by Russell Banks a story is told of tragedy that strikes a small town. Banks tells this story through multiple character each of which brings their own understand and view of the accident. Billy Ansel was one of the characters used to convey his message. Billy is a parent of two children in the town of Sam Dent. Billy is a veteran, business owner, and widower. All of these moving parts have played huge roles in shaping the character that Billy portrays but nothing could prepare him for losing his children. At the beginning of the story Billy is shown as a person to look up to and rely upon in hard times. But there is another side to Billy that is explored in the latter half of the book. Through the revelation of more detail Billy’s character is better-rounded and with that rounding he also slips into a darker side of himself. This side which is far darker and hidden from the public is brought to the surface when Billy losses his children and changes forever. Billy first appears in the story as a father who was raising his twin children on his own after his wife passed away from cancer. He is waiting in the kitchen for the bus to arrive like he does every morning. Dolores Driscoll is the school bus driver picking up Billy’s children. Dolores is fond of Billy and gives us a view into who she thinks he is. “I always liked stopping at Billy’s. For one thing,......

Titanic Movie Review

...Short of climbing aboard a time capsule and peeling back eight and one-half decades, James Cameron's magnificent Titanic is the closest any of us will get to walking the decks of the doomed ocean liner. Meticulous in detail, yet vast in scope and intent, Titanic is the kind of epic motion picture event that has become a rarity. You don't just watch Titanic, you experience it -- from the launch to the sinking, then on a journey two and one-half miles below the surface, into the cold, watery grave where Cameron has shot never-before seen documentary footage specifically for this movie. In each of his previous outings, Cameron has pushed the special effects envelope. In Aliens, he cloned H.R. Giger's creation dozens of times, fashioning an army of nightmarish monsters. In The Abyss, he took us deep under the sea to greet a band of benevolent space travelers. In T2, he introduced the morphing terminator (perfecting an effects process that was pioneered in The Abyss). And in True Lies, he used digital technology to choreograph an in-air battle. Now, in Titanic, Cameron's flawless re-creation of the legendary ship has blurred the line between reality and illusion to such a degree that we can't be sure what's real and what isn't. To make this movie, it's as if Cameron built an all-new Titanic, let it sail, then sunk it. Of course, special effects alone don't make for a successful film, and Titanic would have been nothing more than an expensive piece of eye candy without a......

Racism Consultation

... This essay will go into detail about how racism is taught to children, characteristics of a racist child or a victim of racism, as well as techniques to prevent or reduce racism in children. Ms. Carlson, the middle school counselor, was approached with an issue that involves two of her students. It appears that Billy has been making racial comments to Tommy, an African American boy.

The school is located in a conservative town and Ms. Carlson feels that this type of education will not be welcomed in the school district.
