Handling Clients: Being a Lawyer 101

Handling clients may be a hassle sometimes, but remember they are the sole reason for your existence. Most clients are usually clueless with regard to everything about legal processes and the basic concepts of law – that's why they hired you in the first place. They may rant about the things or get emotional because of the situation they are in, do not fret, it's only natural. If this happens to be sure to listen up and help them out in any way you can. They (and perhaps you) need it. First off, know what you really are. Yes, you are a lawyer. An attorney is a person who understands and practices law; a person who withstood years toiling in law school just to reach this point. You may be that person; however, you must remember that you are also an adviser, a friend, and a part-time guid

Picture Book Analysis – What a Truly Cool World

I chose to study the analysis of the picture book What a Truly Cool World, written by Julius Lester and illustrated by Joe Capeda. This book is about God and the creation of the world. It seems to be a modern translation, with African American characters, and a contemporary spin on the story of creation.

Green Eggs and Ham

For my story book presentation I decided to study Green Eggs and Ham, by Dr. Seuss, which demonstrates a wild ride of events.

Page 10 and 11 (picture from anthology) shows Sam I Am introducing the green eggs and ham to the creature, and asks “Do you like green eggs and ham?” The creature clearly does not; by the expression on his face which is a contrast of Sam I Am who is excited to share his food with the creature. The creature doesn’t even want to touch it as he keeps his arms and legs close to his body. The next page he stands and now the two are face to face. The creature puts a stop sign hand signal and says he does not like green eggs and ham. Sam I am does not take this answer seriously. He continues

Article Review: Gender Issues Regarding Children’s Literature

After searching for any article reviews regarding children’s literature, I stumbled across a very intriguing topic gender issues and gender roles found in children’s literature. The article is actually called, “Gender Issues in Children’s Literature,” written by Manjari Singh. In the beginning of the article Singh clearly states his argument for appropriateness of stereotypical gender roles as a necessity of children’s literature. Children are shaped into who they are as adults beginning when they are children. This includes how they dress, what they do, the activities they like, what they want to be when they grow up, and most importantly how they interact and are accepting into society. Children do not only read to learn “language skills,” but teach also about the differences between gen
