The Absolute Dairy

In the novel “The Absolute Daiary of a Part-Time Indian” by Alexie Sherman is a very compelling story about a fourteen year old Indian, Arnold Spirit or better know as Juinor, who has to overcome a variety of obstacles that can jerpardize his connections with his family and frends. One of the many obstacles Arnold has to face is called a social conflict betweeen his reservtion of very poor indians and the pertiges white people in reardian.The two very different culture tend to judge each other based on their social status on the hierarchical pyramid and they really don’t understand each other culture or values, so instead they stereotype one another based on their prior knowledge of eachother.

During their first game agaisnt eachother Rowdy had knocked Junior out of the game by giving him a minor concussion,so now Junior wants revenge and he wants to beat Rowdy at his own …show more content…
Now Junior is team Reardan the white are cheering for him, “ Arnold.. Arnold..” their chantng his name, while his past team is glaring at him and screaming, “BOOOOOO…” throughout the entire game. I chose the song “ Remember The Name “ by Fort Minor featuring Eminem as a sort of intro music for the Reardan team and to pump the up for the game,but it also represent the amount of confident that Junior has gained from his last fight with Rowdy, but this time he was determinde to beat Rowdy. The pictures are a great representation of how the game was played, even put them inorder from the start of the game to the end, where Junior scores on Rowdy and it included specfic scenes from the book to help people see how the game was illustrated in the book.By creating this multimodal response it has really helped me see how so many factors were presented in the book, the characters and the plot came together to give a really thought process of how we see one another from a steretypical way. Even though Junior was kind of thrown in the middle of all this drama he was still was bale to stay grounded and stay tue to

    Junior has poor self-esteem through the obstacles and comes to overcome them. Three ways that change through the novel and transforms Junior is basketball, mentors, and Penelope. Joining the basketball team at Reardan really helped Junior with his self-esteem. Junior didn’t realize he would make the team but the coach realized his shooting skills were better because he remembers him at the reservation school and coach told junior “And I was going to be his secret weapon. I was going to be his weapon of mass destruction” (Alexie 142).…

    Well that depends on the consistency of Golden State in the postseason next year. Stephen Curry was sloppy in the postseason, logging numerous turnovers and opting for fancy behind-the-back and no-look passes that led to points for LeBron & Co in the finals so hopefully the regular season MVP has learned that his dancing on the hardwood doesn’t yield better results than the straight up and down basketball he played to win the championship two years ago. Unfortunately for the rest of us, until basketball season rolls around again we wouldn’t know how this new storyline will play out but on paper it could be match made in basketball…

    Showers would finish with a game-high 16 pts and 5 steals, and Shawn Sanders finished with 15 pts. Cox Head Coach Bobby Wolfe was incredibly proud of his team and the fight they put up even though they were not at full strength coach did not use that as an excuse, he stressed that too much sloppy play had cost the Falcons the game. The Stallions have not lost to a beach district team since 2013, and that streak continued tonight.

When another teammate had commented about how he was always bragging, Gary said to them don’t worry “they” like to brag. Julius took Gary using the word “they” as him referring to black people. Another sign of ethnocentrism is when Coach Boone took Petey out of the game.…

    I especially liked the scene when the whole team helped Timo finish his 2,500 pushups and 1,000 suicides sentenced to him by Coach Carter. That weekend break may have given all of us time to think about us as a team because that Monday was a huge blowout in favor of us. As the season dragged into 2013, we ended up winning some and losing some. Marcus seemed like a blessing on the days that he did come. He just seemed to always part the throng of opponents in the post as he dunked…
