The classes Issues in Health and Society and English III work together to do a persuasive essay and debate about the sale of human organ be legal. I was responsible for the con side of the topic. While writing this essay I learn many interesting facts about organ donation and the market sale, and how many people were on the waiting list. I also learn how to be a better communicator and researcher for the topic. What I can improve on for next time is to have better questions to ask my opponent and to have better facts and example for my side.
Today in English, we read “Crucible Act Three” by Arthur Miller.
In the Puritan culture, males hold all the power, unlike the females and children who are expected to be subservient. The first example when the societal norm change, is when Abigail cry out in the courtroom “Oh, Heavenly Father, take away this shadow!” (Miller 189), to make everybody believe Mary could potentially be a witch. The second example when the societal norm change, is when Abigail was accused of being a mistress to John, she threatens the court by saying “If I must answer that, I will leave and I will not come back again” (Miller 189). The third example when the societal norm change, is when Abigail scream out loud to the ceiling “You will not! Begone! Begone, I say!” (Miller 191), to cause Mary to be accused as a witch. Those three examples are the reason why I believe how Abigail change the societal norm within the village of Salem.
This week we were assigned a project about people who were involved with the Japanese Internment Camp. I did my project on Rose Nieda, Rose Nieda was born on April 26, 1923, in Walville, Washington. When she was eighteen years old, Pearl Habor was attacked by the Japanese. It was not before long that her family was sent to the Pinedale Assembly Center in Fresno, California. While in Pinedale Assembly Center, Rose work as the person who places families into available spaces in the Pinedale Assembly Center and she was paid $19 dollars. After a year at the Pinedale Assembly Center, she and her family were transported to Tule Lake Camp, also known as the No, No Camp. In the Tule Lake Camp, Rose worked as an English language teacher but decided to quit, as the workload was too much for her. So she decided to become a social reporter instead. So she decided to become a social reporter instead. After two years at Tule Lake Camp, Rose was finally free to go. She got a job, but she has to say she was Chinese and not Japanese. She got a job, but she has to say she was Chinese instead of Japanese, as being Japanese at the time was not a good thing. Years later, Rose met her future husband in a hospital in Detroit, Michigan and they got married on April of 1946 in Detroit, Michigan.
The Japanese interments camps was a result of mass hysteria because the American government starts sending anybody who is Japanese, even if they were not immigrant and was born in the United States. The role the non-Japanese-American citizen play was mostly a bystander, they were there when the Japanese-American was sent to camp, but they did nothing. The role the Japanese-American citizen play was mostly a follower, when they were told to do something, like being sent to camp, they just do it.
Today in English, we read “Crucible Act Three” by Arthur Miller.
In Crucible Act III, John Proctor seems to be an honorable man, as he tries to help his wife and his friends wives. The first example is when he told everybody in court, “who tells us Rebecca Nurse murdered seven babies by sending out her spirit on them?” (Miller 180). The second example is when he told Judge Danforth, “These are my friends. Their wives are also accused-“, (Miller 181) when he has the choices of having his wife out of prison and free as she was pregnant. The third example is when he said he had proof that women who were accused were innocent, “The people signing it declare their good opinion of Rebecca, and my wife, and Martha Corey” (Miller 181). Those three reasons are the reason why I believe John Proctor is an innocent and honorable man.
Today in English, we read “Crucible Act Two Part Two” by Arthur Miller.
In the Crucible, the women are treated horribly and sometimes violently. An example of that is when John told Mary, “My wife will never die for me! I will bring your guts into your mouth but that goodness will not die for me!” (Miller 174). Another example of that is when John strangles Mary, “Grasping her by the throat as though he would strangle her” (Miller 174). Those examples show that the Puritan values are oppressive and harsh towards women. The message that Miller conveys through those portrayals is that women are weaker than men.
Today in English, we read “Crucible Act Two” by Arthur Miller.
I believe the reason why Act Two begins weeks after the initial witchcraft accusations have been made and the courts are in full session is because Miller wants the characters to tell the story as they are experimenting it themselves. The first example is when John told Elizabeth why did she let Mary Warren go to Salem “Why’d you let her? You heard me forbid her go to Salem any more?” (Miller 162). The second example is when Elizabeth told John to go to Salem and tell everybody that Abigail story was a fraud, “You must tell them it is a fraud”(Miller 162). The third example is when Mary told John that she save Elizabeth life by saying, “I saved her life today!” (Miller 165) at court. Those three examples are the reasons why I believe Act Two begins weeks after the initial witchcraft accusations have been made and the courts are in full session is because Miller wants the characters to tell the story as they are experimenting it themselves.
Today in English, we read “Crucible Act One Part Two” by Arthur Miller.
The relationship I choose to examine is the relationship between Thomas Putnam and John Proctor. Thomas asks John “What lumber is that you’re draggin’, if I may ask you?” (Miller 150) as soon as John said he needs to go and drag lumber home. John then replied with, “My lumber. From out my forest by the riverside” (Miller 150). Which cause Thomas replied with “Why, we are surely gone wild this year. What anarchy is this? That tract is in my bounds, it’s in my bounds, Mr. Proctor” (Miller 150). “In your bounds! I bought that tract from Goody Nurse’s husband five months ago” (Miller 150). replied John. With how their conversation is going, I believe Thomas will soon say John is doing witchcraft just to get revenge, because of John getting lumbers from his, supposedly, forest.
Today in English, we read “Crucible Act One” by Arthur Miller.
I believe John no longer have romantic feelings for Abigail, but he still cares for her. The first reason why I believe John no longer have romantic feelings for Abigail is when he told Abigail, “I’ll not be comin’ for you more” (Miller 145). The second reason why I believe John no longer have romantic feelings for Abigail is when he calls Abigail, “Child”” (Miller 145). The third reason why I believe John no longer have romantic feelings for Abigail is when he defends his wife, Elizabeth, from Abigail talking badly about her (Miller 146). Those three reasons are the reason why I believe John no longer have romantic feelings for Abigail.
Today in English, we read “The Outcasts of Poker Flat” by Bret Harte.
I believe the group, which consists of John Oakhurst, the Duchess, Mother Shipton, Tom Simson, and Piney work as a successful team. They are the outcasts of their town for being objectionable characters and for love. The first reason why I believe the group to work successfully is when John Oakhurst exchange his horse for the mule for the Duchess to ride on. The second reason why I believe the group to work successfully is when Mother Shipton told John Oakhurst on her death bed to give her bundle of food to Piney. The third and final reason why I believe the group to work successfully is when John Oakhurst give snowshoes to Tom Simson so he can walk to Poker Flat. Those three reasons are the reason why I believe John Oakhurst, the Duchess, Mother Shipton, Tom Simson, and Piney work as a successful team.
Today in American History, We learn about the trails west. We were assigned a prompt about us being a pioneer that is in search of a new life and land. We either write a letter to a friend back home or a journal entry describing our experiences during the trip.
Today was a sunny, warm, and slightly windy day. Which made me believe it to be early autumn, which means it could be either be August or September of 1850. It has been about six or seven months that have passed since my family and our family friend decides to leave our home in Sioux City, Iowa. We have decided to leave to head to the great state of California, for the possibility of owning land and gold. The wagon train only includes my family and our family friends. Father was the captain because we were the only one that has the most family members. We started to leave in early spring, which I believe to be around early March when we decide to leave. I will admit, there was time during the trip that I did not get along with my family and our family friend, but we were able to talk through it. There were many attacks and accidents that have happened during the trip, fortunately, nobody dies. Some example of attacks was when we were attacked by bandits that want our money and foods, we were lucky that we have weapons to defend ourselves against them. Another time was when I was walking in front of the oxen and was not paying attention, which almost got me run over by our oxen. During the trip, I saw many animals that were not common back homes such as sparrow, woodpecker, hummingbird, bear, wolf, coyote and much more.
Sincerely your friend, Tammy Huynh
