Read the two passages. Passage One Our school’s mission statement stresses community, cooperation, and personal and intellectual growth. But one of our school’s practices—selecting a valedictorian, or the student with the highest rank in the graduating class—does not support our mission. This practice is divisive, unfair, and archaic. So let’s end it now! Passage Two It is only with great care that administrators consider implementing any system-wide changes to their mission statements. Administrators carefully craft these statements to reflect their school’s fundamental and philosophical approach to education. They take great care in making sure that this mission statement is educationally sound. Based on these two passages, which statement is true? Neither author is open or receptive to opinions contrary to his or her own. Based on an examination of word choice, it is evident that the author of the first passage is someone in administration, while the author of the second is not. Based on an examination of structure, it is clear that both authors reveal their viewpoints most clearly in the last sentence. Both authors are in support of the mission statement.

Read the following excerpt from Leslie Marmon Silko’s story “The Man to Send Rain Clouds.” They turned off the highway onto the sandy pueblo road. Not long after they passed the store and post office they saw Father Paul’s car coming toward them. When he recognized their faces he slowed his car and waved for them to stop. The young priest rolled down the car window. “Did you find old Teofilo?” he asked loudly. Leon stopped the truck. “Good morning, Father. We were just out to the sheep camp. Everything is O.K. now.” “Thank God for that. Teofilo is a very old man. You really shouldn’t allow him to stay at the sheep camp alone.” “No, he won’t do that any more now.” What does this dialogue reveal about the priest’s standing within the community? He is a trusted leader of the tribe. He is considered to be an outsider. He is a spiritual guide to the people. He is disliked by most of the people.


Answer: The right answer is the B: He is considered to be an outsider.

Explanation: Leon and his brother-in-law, Ken, had found Teofilo’s corpse under a tree. However, when Father Paul, a Franciscan priest, asked them if they had found him, Leon did not mention that Teofilo had died. He did not openly lie to the priest, but he avoided mentioning Teofilo’s death to him. This shows that Father Paul was not considered part of the tribe, but an outsider that was trying to “impose” his faith and his religious practices on a community that already had its own.

Which lines in this excerpt from act I of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet reveal that Romeo was avoiding Benvolio? BENVOLIO: Madam, an hour before the worshipped sun Peered forth the golden window of the east, A troubled mind drove me to walk abroad, Where, underneath the grove of sycamore That westward rooteth from this city side, So early walking did I see your son. Towards him I made, but he was ‘ware of me And stole into the covert of the wood. I, measuring his affections by my own, Which then most sought where most might not be found, Being one too many by my weary self, Pursued my humor not pursuing his, And gladly shunned who gladly fled from me.


Since a tiny tender child of four,
There’s nothing that I dreamt of more,
Than to jump aboard a great big ship,
A telescope, a map, a sword, by my hip,
To feel the sea breeze in my hair,
To stroke my parrot on the wood chair,
To be bold and brave and happy as can be,
To trek and travel and sail the seven seas.

8 lines. Rhyme scheme aabbccdd. If I managed to write that in about 4 minutes, you could write something much better and longer in like 30 minutes. You can use my rubbish poem as inspiration lol. Good luck X

Read the following exchange between Romeo and Juliet from act I of Romeo and Juliet. What does the excerpt reveal about the love between the two young people? ROMEO: (to JULIET) If I profane with my unworthiest hand This holy shrine, the gentle fine is this: My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand To smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss. JULIET: Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much, Which mannerly devotion shows in this; For saints have hands that pilgrims’ hands do touch, And palm to palm is holy palmers’ kiss. ROMEO: Have not saints lips, and holy palmers too? JULIET: Ay, pilgrim, lips that they must use in prayer. Their love is based on both physical and emotional attraction. Their love is shallow and based on defying their families. Their love is driven by their intellectual needs. Their love is instant and illogical. NextReset

Answer:

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman

Explanation:

Magical Realism finds precedent in eighteenth-century Gothic novels, but also connects with sixteenth-century Baroque or Surrealism, almost contemporary in the early twentieth century.

Among the most striking features of this movement, we find the blend of realism with pure unreality that is observed as normal, with the integration of magical elements without seeming extraordinary.

These works do not explain the supernatural elements and are narrated as something natural, with characters unaware of their transcendent dimension. In addition, death has paramount value in the relativistic discourse of truth, with a metaphysical focus on space and time and an intimate atmosphere that blends characters with myths, legends, and natural cultures.

Henri Rousseau’s Portrait of a Woman is considered one of the first magical realistic stories.

The
correct answer to this is the event of:

 

“The
Great Depression”

 

The Great
Depression occured from 1929 to 1939, and was the most horrible economic recession
in the history. It started after the stock market crashed on October 1929,
which sent Wall Street into panic and erased millions of investors. This considerably
hanged the popular view of government’s appropriate role in the economy. The
Great Depression convinced a lot of people that the government had a role in
correcting for aggregate market failures and hence leading to a shift from Laissez-Faire
view towards a more activist view of the government.

B) Literary nonfiction does not involve a written story of one’s entire life with multiple themes. C) Literary fiction engages a reader by using the repititon of initial consonant sounds in a sentence. D) Literary fiction engages the reader by pointing out similar qualities in two unlike things.


The correct answer is A. Before beginning your project, make sure you purchase all the items you will need: colored pencils, drawing paper, and a ruler.

Explanation:

In grammar, there are multiple punctuation marks including the period (.), the comma (;), the colon (:), etc. and each of them is used with different purposes and in different situations. In the case of the comma, this punctuation mark is used to separate elements in a list and other sections of the sentence including introductory phrases or phrases that add non-essential information. On the other hand, in the case of colon(:) these are mainly used to introduce a list of items.

This means in the case of the sentence presented it is necessary to place a comma after “Before beginning your project” because this is an introductory phrase and also commas should be used to separate the items of the list “colored pencils drawing paper and a ruler”. Besides this, a semicolon should be included before the first item or “color pencils” to introduce the list. Thus, the sentence that is punctuated correctly is “Before beginning your project, make sure you purchase all the items you will need: colored pencils, drawing paper, and a ruler”.
