Wendy can use her break to find out what approach her classmates are taking. Wendy can get a better perspective of what needs to be included in her essay and how it should be presented.

Wendy should take short breaks while writing the draft so:

* Wendy can read what she has written after a break and plan the best way to continue.

* Wendy can get a better perspective of what needs to be included in her essay and how it should be presented.


It is suggested that Wendy should tale short breaks while she is writing the draft that means that she has not finished it, revisions are made until the writer finishes the draft, so she can just read it to keep on going with the rest, and after a little break she has a fresh vision of the work she is making and she can improve it before finishing it.

What does this mean? " 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. "


It means that though Abraham Lincoln may be the President of the country, his opposition of the slavery system is not something he can just simply take into consideration. His duty to the nation precedes his personal opinions.


The above excerpt is from the letter written by Abraham Lincoln to Albert G. Hodges, editor of the newspaper Frankfurt, Kentucky, Commonwealth. President Lincoln had been an avid supporter of the emancipation of slaves.

In the letter, he wrote that though he is personally against the slavery system, being the President doesn't ensure that he should abolish it. He might be the President of the country, with absolute power, but he had taken an oath to protect and preserve the interest of all the citizens. And he knows there are a lot of people who still wants the slavery system. So, he can't just ignore these people's interest and act like a dictator. His first duty is to the nation and the constitution, which he had sworn an oath to do so.

An accident again changed the current of my ideas. When I was about fifteen years old we had retired to our house near Belrive, when we witnessed a most violent and terrible thunderstorm. It advanced from behind the mountains of Jura, and the thunder burst at once with frightful loudness from various quarters of the heavens. I remained, while the storm lasted, watching its progress with curiosity and delight. As I stood at the door, on a sudden I beheld a stream of fire issue from an old and beautiful oak which stood about twenty yards from our house; and so soon as the dazzling light vanished, the oak had disappeared, and nothing remained but a blasted stump. When we visited it the next morning, we found the tree shattered in a singular manner. It was not splintered by the shock, but entirely reduced to thin ribbons of wood. I never beheld anything so utterly destroyed. Before this I was not unacquainted with the more obvious laws of electricity. On this occasion a man of great research in natural philosophy was with us, and excited by this catastrophe, he entered on the explanation of a theory which he had formed on the subject of electricity and galvanism, which was at once new and astonishing to me. All that he said threw greatly into the shade Cornelius Agrippa, Albertus Magnus, and Paracelsus, the lords of my imagination; but by some fatality the overthrow of these men disinclined me to pursue my accustomed studies. It seemed to me as if nothing would or could ever be known. All that had so long engaged my attention suddenly grew despicable. By one of those caprices of the mind which we are perhaps most subject to in early youth, I at once gave up my former occupations, set down natural history and all its progeny as a deformed and abortive creation, and entertained the greatest disdain for a would-be science which could never even step within the threshold of real knowledge. In this mood of mind I betook myself to the mathematics and the branches of study appertaining to that science as being built upon secure foundations, and so worthy of my consideration.

When Capulet says “Death is my son-in-law,” he means...

“Death is my son-in-law, death is my heir; My daughter he hath wedded.”

This quote from Lord Capulet is a personification about Juliet’s death on the day of her wedding. He means that Juliet has married death. Death has taken away his Juliet which is his heir. And through this line, the audience can see that Capulet disregards the emotional loss of a daughter, but instead fixates on the loss of wealth and loss of an "heir".

Read the excerpt from a letter Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote while imprisoned in Birmingham Jail in 1963. One who breaks an unjust law must do so openly, lovingly, and with a willingness to accept the penalty. Based on his behavior in "Civil Disobedience," how would Thoreau most likely feel about King’s statement? He would believe that his reasons and King’s reasons for protest were completely unrelated. He would disagree with King’s belief that one must accept the penalty for political protest. He would believe that King did not understand the nature of political protest. He would agree with King that one should engage in political protest peacefully.

Thoreau would agree that one should engage in political protest peacefully.

Further Explanation:

Thoreau’s essay ‘Civil Disobedience’ lays down the different ways in which Civil Disobedience can be observed by the public, the legal limits of observing civil disobedience, and how it should be observed so that it does not turn into mob violence. He is convinced that the Governments are not capable of understanding the needs of the welfare of people, which in this case, is also called collective welfare. Thoreau bases his essay on the main ideas of Martin Luther King, who popularized Civil Disobedience among the African Americans who were demanding equal rights as white citizens in America. His loss of confidence in the government is because he believed the representation of majority does not necessarily mean that they will have embodied the morals of wisdom and justice, and learn about the inequalities and injustice faced by a major section of the society.

Thoreau characterizes the government as an agent of injustice and corruption, and his solution to battle this anomaly is to observe civil disobedience for earning their rights. Both King and Thoreau place emphasis on change and reform, while King emphasized the need for both civil, educational and religious reform so that these discriminations would come to an end. Although their visions for society have some congruence, their perspectives have a stark difference. King’s observing of Civil disobedience proved effective during his time, as segregation and widespread racism were somewhat dislodged to a particular extent, and African Americans were being accorded equal citizenship status as well equal employment and educational opportunities.

[LC] The Fall of the House of Usher By Edgar Allan Poe Shaking off what must have been a dream, I scanned more narrowly the real aspect of the building. Its principal feature seemed to be that of an excessive antiquity. The discoloration of ages had been great. Minute fungi overspread the whole exterior, hanging in a fine tangled web-work from the eaves. Yet all this was apart from any extraordinary dilapidation. No portion of the masonry had fallen; and there appeared to be a wild inconsistency between its still perfect adaptation of parts, and the crumbling condition of the individual stones. In this there was much that reminded me of the specious totality of old wood-work which has rotted for long years in some neglected vault, with no disturbance from the breath of the external air. Beyond this indication of extensive decay, however, the fabric gave little token of instability. Perhaps the eye of a scrutinizing observer might have discovered a barely perceptible fissure, which, extending from the roof of the building in front, made its way down the wall in a zigzag direction, until it became lost in the sullen waters of the tarn. Roderick Usher's poem By Edgar Allan Poe * In the greenest of our valleys, * By good angels tenanted, * Once a fair and stately palace— * Radiant palace—reared its head. * In the monarch Thought's dominion— * It stood there! * Never seraph spread a pinion * Over fabric half so fair. * * Banners yellow, glorious, golden, * On its roof did float and flow; * (This—all this—was in the olden * Time long ago); * And every gentle air that dallied, * In that sweet day, * Along the ramparts plumed and pallid, * A winged odor went away. ... * And, round about his home, the glory * That blushed and bloomed * Is but a dim-remembered story * Of the old time entombed. * * And travellers now within that valley, * Through the red-litten windows see * Vast forms that move fantastically * To a discordant melody; * While, like a rapid ghastly river, * Through the pale door, * A hideous throng rush out forever, * And laugh—but smile no more. What do these two pieces have in common? A) They are both about nice places becoming unpleasant. B) They are both about the politics of the time. C) They are both about the importance of architecture. D) They are both based on a famous play.

Which sentence in this excerpt from "Common Sense" by Thomas Paine proposes that the American colonies should be neutral in their relationships with foreign nations? I challenge the warmest advocate for reconciliation, to shew, a single advantage that this continent can reap, by being connected with Great Britain. I repeat the challenge, not a single advantage is derived. A: Our corn will fetch its price in any market in Europe, and our imported goods must be paid for, buy them where we will. But the injuries and disadvantages we sustain by that connection, are without number; and our duty to mankind at large, as well as to ourselves, instruct us to renounce the alliance: Because, any submission to, or dependence on Great Britain, tends directly to involve this continent in European wars and quarrels; and sets us at variance with nations, who would otherwise seek our friendship, and against whom, we have neither anger nor complaint. B: As Europe is our market for trade, we ought to form no partial connection with any part of it. It is the true interest of America to steer clear of European contentions, which she never can do, while by her dependence on Britain, she is made the make-weight in the scale of British politics. Europe is too thickly planted with kingdoms to be long at peace, and whenever a war breaks out between England and any foreign power, the trade of America goes to ruin, BECAUSE OF HER CONNECTION WITH ENGLAND. C: The next war may not turn out like the last, and should it not, the advocates for reconciliation now, will be wishing for separation then, because, neutrality in that case, would be a safer convoy than a man of war. Every thing that is right or natural pleads for separation. The blood of the slain, the weeping voice of nature cries, 'TIS TIME TO PART. Even the distance at which the Almighty hath placed England and America, is a strong and natural proof, that the authority of the one, over the other, was never the design of Heaven. D: The time likewise at which the continent was discovered, adds weight to the argument, and the manner in which it was peopled increases the force of it. The reformation was preceded by the discovery of America, as if the Almighty graciously meant to open a sanctuary to the Persecuted in future years, when home should afford neither friendship nor safety.

Read the excerpt from "My First March.” "Exactly!” Mama said. "By marching, we’ll be letting the government know that we want those unfair laws to be changed. And while we march we’re going to chant, and after we chant, we’ll sing some songs. One way or another, we’re going to make sure the government hears our message.” Based on the excerpt, what is the best reason why the reader would conclude that Mama values integrity? She makes sure her child has a chance to travel. She teaches her child that equality is essential. She reinforces the importance of exercise to her child.


The correct answer is indeed that "She teaches her child that equality is essential". The mother believes it is important to give her dauther this lesson because she has a strong sense of integrity. Meaning, she believes in transparency and the right to self-preservation as basics for life. Hence, in the context of social inequality and unjust political/economical measures, she will protest against the system (by marching and singing) and give her daughter an example of this value (integrity.)

Annotate this text Beowulf I Now Beowulf bode in the burg of the Scyldings, leader beloved, and long he ruled in fame with all folk, since his father had gone away from the world, till awoke an heir, haughty Healfdene, who held through life, sage and sturdy, the Scyldings glad. Then, one after one, there woke to him, to the chieftain of clansmen, children four: Heorogar, then Hrothgar, then Halga brave; and I heard that -- was -- 's queen, the Heathoscylfing's helpmate dear. To Hrothgar was given such glory of war, such honor of combat, that all his kin obeyed him gladly till great grew his band of youthful comrades. It came in his mind to bid his henchmen a hall uprear, ia master mead-house, mightier far than ever was seen by the sons of earth, and within it, then, to old and young he would all allot that the Lord had sent him, save only the land and the lives of his men. Wide, I heard, was the work commanded, for many a tribe this mid-earth round, to fashion the folkstead. It fell, as he ordered, in rapid achievement that ready it stood there, of halls the noblest: Heorot[1] he named it whose message had might in many a land. Not reckless of promise, the rings he dealt, treasure at banquet: there towered the hall, high, gabled wide, the hot surge waiting of furious flame.[2] Nor far was that day when father and son-in-law stood in feud for warfare and hatred that woke again.[3] With envy and anger an evil spirit endured the dole in his dark abode, that he heard each day the din of revel high in the hall: there harps rang out, clear song of the singer. He sang who knew[4] tales of the early time of man, how the Almighty made the earth, fairest fields enfolded by water, set, triumphant, sun and moon for a light to lighten the land-dwellers, and braided bright the breast of earth with limbs and leaves, made life for all of mortal beings that breathe and move. So lived the clansmen in cheer and revel a winsome life, till one began to fashion evils, that field of hell. Grendel this monster grim was called, march-riever[5] mighty, in moorland living, in fen and fastness; fief of the giants the hapless wight a while had kept since the Creator his exile doomed. On kin of Cain was the killing avenged by sovran God for slaughtered Abel. Ill fared his feud,[6] and far was he driven, for the slaughter's sake, from sight of men. Of Cain awoke all that woful breed, Etins[7] and elves and evil-spirits, as well as the giants that warred with God weary while: but their wage was paid them! [1] That is, "The Hart," or "Stag," so called from decorations in the gables that resembled the antlers of a deer. This hall has been carefully described in a pamphlet by Heyne. The building was rectangular, with opposite doors -- mainly west and east -- and a hearth in the middle of th single room. A row of pillars down each side, at some distance from the walls, made a space which was raised a little above the main floor, and was furnished with two rows of seats. On one side, usually south, was the high-seat midway between the doors. Opposite this, on the other raised space, was another seat of honor. At the banquet soon to be described, Hrothgar sat in the south or chief high-seat, and Beowulf opposite to him. The scene for a flying (see below, v.499) was thus very effectively set. Planks on trestles -- the "board" of later English literature -- formed the tables just in front of the long rows of seats, and were taken away after banquets, when the retainers were ready to stretch them- selves out for sleep on the benches. [2] Fire was the usual end of these halls. See v. 781 below. One thinks of the splendid scene at the end of the Nibelungen, of the Nialssaga, of Saxo's story of Amlethus, and many a less famous instance. [3] It is to be supposed that all hearers of this poem knew how Hrothgar's hall was burnt, -- perhaps in the unsuccessful attack made on him by his son-in-law Ingeld. [4] A skilled minstrel. The Danes are heathens, as one is told presently; but this lay of beginnings is taken from Genesis. [5] A disturber of the border, one who sallies from his haunt in the fen and roams over the country near by. This probably pagan nuisance is now furnished with biblical credentials as a fiend or devil in good standing, so that all Christian Englishmen might read about him. "Grendel" may mean one who grinds and crushes. [6] Cain's. [7] Giants.
