Answer:

Realism

Explanation:

The literary and art movement of Realism began in France, in the 1840s. This movement was characterized by its rejection of Romantic ideals that put too much emphasis on emotion, imagination, drama and the individual's subjective point of view, and idealized subjects. Instead, Realism focused on depicting social realities and its problems, the lives of ordinary people, and common and everyday settings as they were, with accuracy, without trying to embellish them and without avoiding unpleasant aspects of life.

Quote from the following passage. Use at least three sets of ellipses and one set of brackets with an addition. There are nowadays professors of philosophy, but not philosophers. Yet it is admirable to profess because it was once admirable to live. To be a philosopher is not merely to have subtle thoughts, nor even to found a school, but so to love wisdom as to live according to its dictates, a life of simplicity, independence, magnanimity, and trust. It is to solve some of the problems of life, not only theoretically, but practically. The success of great scholars and thinkers is commonly a courtier-like success, not kingly, not manly. They make shift to live merely by conformity, practically as their fathers did, and are in no sense the progenitors of a noble race of men. —Thoreau, from Walden

If you believe in freedom, you will agree that Deborah Sampson was a war heroine. Deborah proved that women can be excellent soldiers. At a time when women were not allowed to join the army, she hid her identity and did just that. She spent seventeen months posing as a man to serve her country. Deborah was born in Massachusetts in 1760. When she was a child, her family was poor and her mother was ill. At the age of eight, Deborah became a servant. She spent ten years working in a nearby home. She also worked in the fields. During her time as a servant, Deborah became a great person. She learned to hunt, ride a horse, and perform carpentry tasks. She also attended school. By the end of her service, she had received enough education to become a teacher. She taught students at a public school until 1782. At twenty-one, Deborah decided to do something noble. She wanted to serve her country. America was in the middle of the Revolutionary War. The people wanted to win their freedom from England. Women weren’t allowed to join the army, so Deborah developed a clever idea. She would pretend to be a man, so she could become a soldier! On May 20, 1782, Deborah performed a brave and honorable act. She dressed as a man and joined the army, signing up as Robert Shurtleff. The other men in the army had no idea that Robert Shurtleff had such a big secret. At five feet, seven inches, Deborah was a tall woman. No one questioned her size. The other men did notice that she never grew a beard. They often teased her about never needing to shave, but they thought it was because Robert was young. During one battle, Deborah was shot in the leg, but she refused to see a doctor. She worried that the doctor would learn her secret and tell the army leaders. Instead, she chose to treat her own wounds. The leg never healed properly, but Deborah’s secret was safe. What a strong and determined solider she was! Unfortunately, in the fall of 1783, she developed a fever and went to see a doctor. During her treatment, the doctor discovered the truth. The Continental Army released Deborah with honors. Her days as a soldier were over, and she no longer had to live a lie. She later married and had three children. She also gave lectures about her time in the army as Robert Shurtleff. The story of Deborah's life should inspire girls and women everywhere. Paul Revere, another war hero, spoke well of Deborah. He once wrote that she was "a woman with handsome talents, good morals, a dutiful wife, and an affectionate parent." Read the passage on the left to answer the following questions: Which statement from the passage BEST supports the author's conclusion that Deborah was a war heroine? A) Deborah proved that women can be excellent soldiers. B) She spent seventeen months posing as a man to serve her country. C) She also gave lectures about her time in the army as Robert Shurtleff. D) The other men in the army had no idea that Robert Shurtleff had such a big secret.

In which situation are you most likely to be able to use the context clues strategy successfully? A. A text in which the definitions of unknown words are included in a glossary. B. A text in which unknown words are highlighted for the reader. C. A text in which the reader can choose from a menu of words to determine which one best completes a sentence. D. A text in which the writer has provided enough information in the sentence or surrounding sentences that the meaning of the word is clear.

The correct answer is D. A text in which the writer has provided enough information in the sentence or surrounding sentences that the meaning of the word is clear.

Explanation:

In texts and in the reading process, context clues strategy is about using the words, details, and sentences in which an unknown or unfamiliar word appears in order to determine the meaning of it. This strategy is quite useful as in this way the reader can understand all the information in a text without using an external source such as a dictionary or any other strategy.

However, this strategy can only be used if the author or writer of a text provides details, words or similar that describe or give clues that clarify the meaning of the unknown word. Considering this, it can be concluded the situation in which you can use successfully this strategy is "a text in which the writer has provided enough information in the sentence or surrounding sentences that the meaning of the word is clear" because this strategy relies on the clues or hints provided by the words and sentences that surround an unknown word but without hints this strategy cannot be used.

Read ths excerpt from “Break, Break, Break” by Alfred Loryd Tennyson. What is the theme of the poem? Break, break, break, On thy cold gray stones, O Sea! And I would that my tongue could utter The thoughts that arise in me. O well for the fisherman's boy, That he shouts with his sister at play! O well for the sailor lad, That he sings in his boat on the bay! And the stately ships go on To their haven under the hill: But O for the touch of a vanish'd hand, And the sound of a voice that is still! Break, break, break, At the foot of thy crags, O Sea! But the tender grace of a day that is dead Will never come back to me. Life seems like the endless ocean. One man's grief cannot stop progress. A moment lost in time does not return. People do not understand the true meaning of life.

Answer:

The theme of the poem is that a moment lost in time does not return

Hi, the theme of the poem is that a moment lost in time does not return.

The speaker feels that all the time spent is lost and it will never come back, he states: "But the tender grace of a day that is dead

Will never come back to me".

Read the paragraph from Nick’s personal narrative. Standing alone in my family’s barn, I thought about how much hard work and time my parents had invested—how much hard work and time we had all invested—in maintaining a fully operational farm. I did not remember a time when my clothes had not reeked of manure or my hair had not held fast to brittle pieces of straw. What would happen if my parents had to sell the farm so we could move closer to my grandparents? Just as I was attempting to imagine a life in the city, a sudden commotion erupted and interrupted my thoughts. With animals squawking and dust flying, I scrambled to pinpoint the source of this unexpected intrusion. In seconds that felt more like minutes, I was successful . . . and I could scarcely believe what my eyes were seeing. Nick would like to rearrange his plot so that it begins with the commotion in the barn. Which statement best describes how starting in the middle of an exciting part will affect the plot?1. Nick will need to go back and explain why his parents have worked so hard to keep the farm.2. Nick will need to provide other exciting details in order to maintain the reader’s attention.3.

Imagine that you're a fly. You're just zipping around the sky, looking for a place to rest, when you see nice pink leaf. That looks like a nice place to land. You think to yourself in your fly head. As you rest your feet on the leaf, you notice something strange. This leaf is hairy. You begin to make your move, but you trigger the plant's reflex. Snap! In one-tenth of a second, you are caught in the Venus flytrap. You will be digested in five to twelve days. Welcome to the world of carnivorous plants! There are over a quarter of a millions plant species. Only 600 or so are carnivorous. We call them this because they attract, trap, and eat bugs. Like other plants, they get energy from the sun. But unlike other plants, they get their nutrients from their prey. Carnivorous plants live in bogs and places where the soil lacks nutrients. Most plants get nutrients from the soil. Carnivorous plants have turned to other sources. The snap of the Venus flytrap is not the only way that plants eat bugs. Pitcher plants trick their prey into landing on them. They offer nectar bribes to the foolish insects that would take them. True to their name, pitcher plants have deep chambers. Their landing surface is slippery. They have inward pointing hairs, making it hard to escape. The fly lands on the pitcher plant to eat, but slips into a pit filled with digestive fluids and is eaten. Then there're sundews. We call them sundews because they sparkle in the sun as if covered in morning dew. Of course, that sparkle is from something much more treacherous. It is a sweet goo called mucilage that bugs can't resist. Sundews create mucilage to attract bugs. As they fly in to eat, bugs become trapped in the very object of their desire. They soon exhaust themselves by trying to escape the mucilage. Or the sundew's tentacles, which respond to prey by curling around them, smother them. Bugs usually die in about 15 minutes. Then the plant dissolves its prey in enzymes and absorbs the nutrients. Image Have you ever walked into trouble and found that you couldn't get out? So has every insect that has ever wandered into a corkscrew plant. Bugs love to investigate plants for nectar and food. Corkscrew plants have inviting stems. Curved hairs line the inside of these stems. These hairs allow insects to go up the stems, but not back. Going forward leads a chamber filled with digestive fluid, the plant's stomach. Bugs who wander into the corkscrew plant find that they are unable to escape. They must march to their own demise. And then there are the bladderworts. They're about as nice as they sound. They live in water and float near the surface. Their traps are like small bladders hidden beneath the water. Only their flowers are visible from the surface. When bugs swim into the trigger hairs, the plant reacts. A trapdoor in the bladder opens up. The bladder sucks up the prey and the water surrounding it. A tenth of a second later, the bladder shuts again. The plant has trapped the prey. It releases digestive fluids. The prey will be digested within hours. Carnivorous plants might sound tough, but they are difficult to keep at home. They are built to survive in places that other plants cannot. This specialization comes at a cost. They have a hard time adapting to other environments. Their strengths become weaknesses in rich soil. They depend on the harsh yet delicate environments in which they thrive. They are not so hardy after all. Still, there's something to be said about the power of life when one finds a plant that can survive in barren soil. Question:Compare and contrast two types of plants described in this passage. How are they similar? How are they different? Refer to the text in your answer and explain your arguments completely. Eplain in two paragraph

Just write about the differences and similarities about only two of the plants mentioned in the text. There are 5 plants mentioned (venus flytrap, pitcher plant, sundew, corkscrew plant, and bladderworts.)

Read the passage from “The Devil and Tom Walker.” In the passage, what does the word avarice mean? From “The Devil and Tom Walker” He was not prone to let his wife into his confidence; but as this was an uneasy secret, he willingly shared it with her. All her avarice was awakened at the mention of hidden gold, and she urged her husband to comply with the black man's terms, and secure what would make them wealthy for life. A. bossiness B. greediness C. meanness D. selfishness

greediness

In the passage avarice is used to describe Tom Walker's wife. The contextual clues that help one determine it's meaning is "hidden gold" and "wealthy for life". Since these are the two things that seem to matter to the woman, it can be deduced that avarice means greediness. While she did urge her husband to comply, she is not commanding him - this would suggest bossiness. Also, in this specific part we don't see any evidence that would suggest she is mean or selfish.

I, ABRAHAM LINCOLN, President of the United States of America, and Commander-in-Chief of the Army and Navy thereof, do hereby proclaim and declare that hereafter, as heretofore, the war will be prosecuted for the object of practically restoring the constitutional relation between the United States, and each of the States, and the people thereof, in which States that relation is, or may be, suspended or disturbed. That it is my purpose, upon the next meeting of Congress to again recommend the adoption of a practical measure tendering pecuniary aid to the free acceptance or rejection of all slave States, so called, the people whereof may not then be in rebellion against the United States and which States may then have voluntarily adopted, or thereafter may voluntarily adopt, immediate or gradual abolishment of slavery within their respective limits; and that the effort to colonize persons of African descent, with their consent, upon this continent, or elsewhere, with the previously obtained consent of the Governments existing there, will be continued. That on the first day of January in the year of our Lord, one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, all persons held as slaves within any State, or designated part of a State, the people whereof shall then be in rebellion against the United States shall be then, thenceforward, and forever free; and the executive government of the United States, including the military and naval authority thereof, will recognize and maintain the freedom of such persons, and will do no act or acts to repress such persons, or any of them, in any efforts they may make for their actual freedom.

40 POINTS!!!!!!!!! Executive Mansion, Washington, April 4, 1864. A. G. Hodges, Esq., Frankfort, Ky. My Dear Sir: You ask me to put in writing the substance of what I verbally stated the other day, in your presence, to Governor Bramlette and Senator Dixon. It was about as follows: I am naturally anti-slavery. If slavery is not wrong nothing is wrong. I cannot remember when I did not so think and feel; and yet I have never understood that the Presidency conferred upon me an unrestricted right to act officially in this judgment and feeling. It was in the oath I took that I would to the best of my ability preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. I could not take the office without taking the oath. Nor was it in my view that I might take the oath to get power, and break the oath in using the power. I understood, too, that in ordinary civil administration this oath even forbade me to practically indulge my primary abstract judgment on the moral question of slavery. I had publicly declared this many times and in many ways; and I aver that, to this day I have done no official act in mere deference to my abstract judgment and feeling on slavery. I did understand, however, that my oath to preserve the Constitution to the best of my ability imposed upon me the duty of preserving, by every indispensable means, that government, that nation, of which that Constitution was the organic law. Was it possible to lose the nation, and yet preserve the Constitution? By general law, life and limb must be protected; yet often a limb must be amputated to save a life, but a life is never wisely given to save a limb. I felt that measures, otherwise unconstitutional, might become lawful by becoming indispensable to the preservation of the Constitution through the preservation of the nation. Right or wrong, I assumed this ground, and now avow it. I could not feel that to the best of my ability I had even tried to preserve the Constitution, if, to save slavery, or any minor matter, I should permit the wreck of government, country, and Constitution altogether. When, early in the war, General Fremont attempted military emancipation, I forbade it, because I did not then think it an indispensable necessity. When, a little later, General Cameron, then Secretary of War, suggested the arming of the blacks, I objected, because I did not yet think it an indispensable necessity. When, still later, General Hunter attempted military emancipation, I forbade it, because I did not yet think the indispensable necessity had come. When, in March and May and July, 1862, I made earnest and successive appeals to the Border States to favor compensated emancipation, I believed the indispensable necessity for military emancipation and arming the blacks would come, unless averted by that measure. They declined the proposition; and I was, in my best judgment, driven to the alternative of either surrendering the Union, and with it the Constitution, or of laying strong hand upon the colored element. I chose the latter. In choosing it, I hoped for greater gain than loss; but of this I was not entirely confident... Yours truly, A. Lincoln Use context to determine the meaning of the phrase in bold.
