The archetype of destruction wrought by conflict seething within the family dyna

The archetype of destruction wrought by conflict seething within the family dynamic is best exemplified in Hanif Kureishi’s“My Son, the Fanatic”when “Parvez [kicks Ali] over… [He knows] the boy is unreachable, but he [strikes] him nonetheless.” Broadly speaking, conflicts in familial relationships are among those most familiar to society, as they exist in relationships with which nearly everyone has experience. However, despite these issues, as a direct result of relationships tending toward their more stable, reconciled state, family members more often than not find ways in which to resolve their differences and find peace. Hence, in accordance with its long-held tradition of mirroring the struggles experienced by the societies in which it is born, literature has come to reflect these behaviors of human life. Three works, “Two Kinds” by Amy Tan, “Sonny’s Blues” by James Baldwin, and “My Son, the Fanatic” by Hanif Kureishi, converge upon the common theme that bilateral conflict arises in familial relationships when parties cannot accept each other as they are, and one attempts to impose its own will forcibly upon another. Conversely, the aforementioned works also show that reconciliation of such conflict is enabled when both parties accept one another despite their differences.
Directions: Answer the following question. Plan your answer before you begin to write out the essay. Use SPECIFIC examples from the readings to explain and support your ideas.

This exam assignment aims to help you reflect on and synthesize your learning fr

This exam assignment aims to help you reflect on and synthesize your learning from this class to help you with your college education, your career, and your life. There are 10 questions of equal weight.
Instructions
Answer each of the following questions, using MLA in-text references to your own or others’ work as appropriate.
Format your document in MLA format with appropriate headings, page numbers, spacing, and an interesting title.
Questions
1. Review all of the feedback I have given you on your writing this semester. Make a list of the top 5 aspects of reading, writing, and/or thinking that you need to work on in your academic writing (bullet points are fine).
2. Make a list of the top 3 things you learned by taking English 2 this semester and make a 1-2 sentence comment about each. These items could be about how to read, write, or think, and/or things related to learning behaviors or life. Focus on things you might use in other classes or areas of your life. For example, “How to evaluate the quality of sources” is better than “how to use MLA format”. Things like “how to manage my time better” are just as valid as items on the course objective list.
3. What will you remember from Jitterbug Perfume? How will you apply the thesis/themes of the book to your own life? If you won’t, explain why not. Write 5-10 sentences, including at least one direct quotation or reference (with page number) from the book.
4. Write 5-8 sentences explaining how you will use our work on evaluating sources in a non-academic part of your life (e.g. work, community, politics, social media, news, family, friends, relationships, etc.). Identify specific contexts in which you can be more discerning (make better choices) about the information you choose to accept as true, engage with, or act on and explain how you will be more discerning in future.
5. Why is it important to identify the source of any information not your own? Write about 5 sentences explaining why scholars (like you) need to tell other scholars (the audience of your essays) where their information is from.
6. Write about 5-8 sentences explaining how you learned something from another student in English 2 this semester. This might be about an idea related to the content of the class or from peer review, but it might also be about an attitude or learning behavior. It might help to look over some of the discussions.
7. Write 8-10 sentences about the role critical thinking plays in being an educated adult. These questions might help you develop your answer: What is critical thinking? How did we do it in English 2? Why is it important? How will you continue to think critically as a student? How will you think critically in other areas of your life?
8. Write 5-10 sentences about what you learned about reading in this class. Your answer might include how to read critically and/or actively, why it’s important to read, and/or what role reading plays in thinking and/or writing.
9. Write 5-8 sentences about what you need to do in order to achieve your academic goals. What behaviors do you need to keep or change? What actions or attitudes do you need to keep or change? Where do you need to do more work or ask for help?
10. Sum up your experience of English 2 in one word or short phrase.

Task One: Analyzing “Little Red Riding Hood” and “The Company of Wolves” Discuss

Task One: Analyzing “Little Red Riding Hood” and “The Company of Wolves”
Discuss the original story of “Little Red Riding Hood” and the TED talk. How does this story invite a reading where we question the motives of the wolf? What elements of suppressed sexuality or sexual violence do you see present in the original tale?
Now, discuss “The Company of Wolves”. How is Carter responding to the original story and responding to traditional gender roles? To sex and sexuality? To sexual violence? What themes and symbols are present in the text that you see as important to understanding the implied message in the text?
Task Two: “A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings”
Discuss the different feelings people have when they respond to the old man in the story (such as disgust, annoyance, awe, confusion, etc.). Why do different people react to the old many in these ways? What does it say about their character?
Think about the title–“A Tale for Children”–what does this mean? Why is it a tale for children (or is it really?)?
What are the important symbols and themes in this text?
What do you think about the biblical allusions in this text?
Task Three: Compare and contrast the three stories. How are they similar and different? How are the elements of fairy tale (review the PowerPoint for ideas) present in both stories and what do they add to the meaning readers get from the stories?
TED talk :
