Name:Frankie “Eleven” The people can be a an extremely tough location for someone that is diffident and also lacks me confidence, especially for a kid. In the story “Eleven” through Sandra Cisnaros, the key character Rachel is really diffident. Ns think this is due to the fact that Rachel did no Speak up as soon as Sylvia Saldivar says that the ugly pullover is Rachel’s, Rachel never ever speaks as much as the teacher, and finally Rachel never spoke up to Phyllis Lopez. In the story Eleven ns think that Rachel is diffident since Rachel did not Name:Frankie “Eleven” The civilization can be a very tough place for someone who is diffident and also lacks me confidence, specifically for a kid. In the story “Eleven” through Sandra Cisnaros, the key character Rachel is really diffident. Ns think this is because Rachel did no Speak up as soon as Sylvia Saldivar claims that the ugly pullover is Rachel’s, Rachel never ever speaks approximately the teacher, and finally Rachel never ever spoke approximately Phyllis Lopez. In the story Eleven ns think the Rachel is diffident since Rachel did no Speak up once Sylvia Saldivar says that the ugly sweater is Rachel’s. I think this since in the story Eleven Rachel said that the ugly sweater was in fact not her"s in a really quiet tone that practically no one might hear. Also, Rachel never ever talked to Sylvia later and also told her that what she did was not okay. “That"s not, i don’t, you"re not… not mine. I lastly say in a little voice as if ns was four.” ns think the this quote from the story shows just how Rachel might be diffident because she did not speak in one assertive tone. The author in that quote also used the an approach of dialogue, i think this due to the fact that they verified a sentence of Rachel talk in a quiet voice/tone. This provides the readers think that Rachel may lack self confidence. In the story Eleven ns think that Rachel is diffident due to the fact that Rachel never spoke up to the teacher. I think this due to the fact that she speak in a really quiet voice/tone. Rachel likewise thought to herself that she had actually to believe everything that the teacher said. “‘Rachel.’ Mrs. Price says as if she is gaining angry. ‘You put that sweater on and also no more nonsense. Yet it’s not, NOW!’ Mrs. Price says.” This small excerpt indigenous the story really shows how Rachel is diffident due to the fact that Rachel talked together if she did not have actually one single bit of confidence left in her body. Also, this quote shows how the author used the method of tone. I think this because it shows just how the teacher yelled at Rachel in a very loud tone, this makes the readers think the Mrs. Price is mean. In the story Eleven i think that Rachel is diffident since Rachel never ever spoke as much as Phyllis Lopez. I think this because Rachel pretends that whatever was okay. Rachel additionally never asks why Phyllis did not speak up and say the ugly red pullover was she in the an initial place. “That stupid Phyllis Lopez, who is even dumber than Sylvia Saldivar, states she remember the red pullover was hers. Ns take that off ideal away and also give it to her, only Mrs. Price pretends everything is okay.” This shows how Rachel is diffident because she never ever went and also talked to the teacher around how what she did was not okay. together you deserve to see, the world can it is in a hard place for human being who may lack self confidence, especially for kids. This is why i feel the in the story Eleven Rachel is diffident due to the fact that Rachel did no speak up once Sylvia Saldivar says that the ugly sweater is Rachel’s, Rachel never spoke up to the teacher, and also finally because Rachel never ever spoke up to Phyllis Lopez. This story really made me readjust my view on some children who are being put down by your teacher’s. ...more

She might only acquire out in a small voice “not mine”, due to the fact that she was also nervous. She didn’t know what come say and also how to react. She also cried.

Sometimes you don’t recognize what come do about them, specifically if you’re a kid, but that’s not about what the hard time is, that’s about what girlfriend do around the hard time you go through. In the story, “Eleven,” by Sandra Cisneros. Rachel encounters a difficult time, once she gets bullied in class. “Eleven,” teaches to no let rather bully you. That is true since Rachel gets bullied by her classmate: Sylvia Saldivar, her teacher Name: Alaina“Eleven”, through Sandra Cisneros, literary EssayEveryone encounters hard times. Sometimes you don’t understand what to do around them, specifically if she a kid, but that’s not about what the tough time is, that’s around what you do about the hard time you go through. In the story, “Eleven,” through Sandra Cisneros. Rachel encounters a difficult time, once she gets bullied in class. “Eleven,” teaches to no let rather bully you. That is true due to the fact that Rachel it s okay bullied by she classmate: Sylvia Saldivar, she teacher: Mrs. Price, and most of every Rachel doesn’t stand up for herself. Rachel should learn to no let others bully her no matter what happens then.One reason is that Rachel’s classmate: Sylvia Saldivar bullies Rachel. Sylvia lies around a ugly sweater being Rachel’s. She makes that increase or maybe thinks she remembers the sweater together Rachel’s indigenous vague memory. Sylvia Saldivar could have said the ugly sweater was Rachel’s come make fun of Rachel because the pullover is, “An ugly sweater favor that every raggedy and old”, the quote shows that because the sweater was ugly and also old, so not many human being would recognize the sweater is theirs. The author: Sandra Cisneros can have do the efforts to usage a method of ton to present how crude oil Sylvia Saldivar is. For instance Rachel call Sylvia Saldivar “stupid.” This mirrors readers how bratty Sylvia Saldivar is.Another factor is the Rachel’s teacher: Mrs. Price bullies Rachel. Mrs. Price to trust Sylvia Saldivar, and also gives the ugly pullover to Rachel, even though Rachel says,“Not mine.” Mrs. Price fully ignores Rachel’s protest. Rachel thinks that Mrs. Price think that, “because she older and also the teacher she right and I’m not.” Rachel has actually the pullover hanging from her desk, and also Mrs. Price pressures Rachel to put on the ugly and itchy sweater. Mrs. Price even lies and says, “I remember friend wearing it once,” come Rachel together if Rachel had actually actually worn and owned the sweater. When Phyllis Lopez says the pullover is in reality her’s and takes the pullover back, Mrs. Price doesn’t even apologize come Rachel. Ns think that the author: Sandra Cisneros, can have make the efforts to usage the goal of stir empathy, and Support the design template (a design template is don’t bully) to make you not choose what’s happening to Rachel. For example Sylvia Saldivar, and Mrs. Price bully Rachel. This reflects readers to be nice since when you room not nice, someone’s feelings can be acquiring hurt. Mrs. Price is a large bully especially due to the fact that she’s the teacher that the class.And most of all, Rachel doesn’t stand up for herself. The pullover is no Rachel’s. She only protests as soon as or twice. She hates the sweater so much she moves the sweater to the sheet of her desk with a ruler, and won’t speak she no the sweater, and also she quit protesting. She listens and puts on the sweater, also though the pullover is ugly and also itchy. Rachel it s okay bullied so much that rather of stand up for herself, Rachel cries in the class, in prior of she classmates. In her head, Rachel is thinking, “Not mine, not mine, not mine,” however she still doesn"t stand up for herself. Rachel doesn’t wake up for herself, and also because of that people are really average to her, yet if she were to stand up for herself, maybe, simply maybe the bullies in the publication would listen to her and also stop bullying her. The author: Sandra Cisneros, could have tried to use a technique of 1st person narrator come tell the reader Rachel’s perspective. For example the story states what Rachel is thinking. This shows readers what Rachel is at this time thinking.As you can see, bullies no a an excellent thing, for this reason they should stop. Rachel gets bullied by multiple people, including her classmate: Sylvia Saldivar, she teacher: Mrs. Price, and also most of all Rachel doesn’t wake up for herself. From currently on, I will certainly be nice, and if I check out someone gift bullied I will certainly stand up for them. Bullies can just require someone to present them the other (nice) door. ...more
