Which One do you Prefer

Although communicating through technology can be useful and convenient you can’t see the person who you are talking to. Although they bear some minor similarities, the differences between communicating in person and communicating through technology are clear.

Here are some similarities between communicating in person and communicating with technology. They both have positive things and negative things. For example if you are communicating through technology you might not be able to hear people clearly. You can communicate with people far away. You can be bullied in both ways of communicating. You can be cyberbullied when you are communicating through technology. You can also be bullied physically when you are communicating in person. Here is an example of cyberbullying if people message you hurtful things and they can keep on doing it to you. Be careful if you are being bullied it doesn’t matter if you are being bullied physically or if you are being cyberbullied the safest thing to do is tell an adult. Those were some similarities between communicating in person and communicating through technology.

Here are some differences between communicating in person and communicating through technology. When you are communicating through technology you can communicate anywhere. For example you can be communicating with someone that is in a different state. I have family that lives in New York so communicating through technology is more convenient. If you are communicating in person you have to be close to them for they can hear you. You can see the person’s emotions when you are communicating in person. When you are communicating in person you can see the person’s facial expressions and their emotions. When you are communicating through technology you can’t see the person’s facial expressions and emotions. Those were some differences between communicating in person and communicating through technology.

As you can see they bear minor similarities, but the differences between communicating in person and communicating through technology are clear. I like communicating through technology, but I also like communicating in person. For me it depends what the situation is. Which one do you prefer?

Morning Meal

People bringing food to other people

Others writing down orders

The delightful smell of pancakes suddenly fills the room as strong

as the scent of blooming flowers

A lady wearing an apron asks for our order I ordered pancakes

A couple of minutes later I saw the food

Which will put you in better mood

The fluffy whipped cream

was like a dream

The sizzling sausage was amazing

After eating everyone was satisfied

Breakfast at Cracker Barrel

Literary Response

I think first person point of view affects “Out of my Mind” positively. For instance, you can understand how Melody is feeling. “I shrieked and kicked with joy. A puppy!” Melody was more happy than a kid with a bucket full of candy. Not to mention, since it is in Melody’s point of view you can understand that melody is really smart, but no one knows it. “By the time I was two, all my memories had words, and all my words had meanings. But only in my head.” Melody is a genius. On the other hand, you can understand what Melody is thinking. “I didn’t want the blocks. I wanted to tell her they were dangerous. I wanted her to tell somebody to get rid of them before a child got sick.” Melody is like a hazard warning. That is how I think first point of view affects the story.

Sharon Draper’s writing

There are many decisions I like about how Sharon Draper wrote “Out of my Mind.”She writes with descriptive language which creates imagery. “When people look at me, I guess they see a girl with short, dark, curly hair strapped into a pink wheelchair.” The story is written in first person. “I guess I figured out I was different a little at a time.” It helps me understand more about people like Melody. “Thoughts need words. Words need a voice.” Those are the decisions I like about how Sharon Draper wrote “Out of my Mind.”

Child Labor

I think child labor is unfair because the children would have to start working at a young age and they would have to work long hard hours and only get 2-9 dollars a week. Also the jobs were dangerous they could lose a finger or a hand or even get killed. If they missed work even if they were sick they might get fired. That is why I think child labor is unfair.
