Eva 2nd Anticipation Guide

1)  I do not agree that people under 18 should be punished for crimes the same way adults are. Because kids, ( they still are kids,) do not know what is wrong and what is right. I mean they do not fully understand the consequences of doing crimes. For example, a 16 year old kid can get put under lots peer pressure about hacking a very important piece of information/ a website. The kid might not understand what he is doing!This kids that made him do this might need it, but does he? I think that children should be taught the consequences of doing crimes, until it is too late!

2) It is better for young people to establish trust with their peers than with adults. I think that I will say that I disagree. Because yes, it is better to be friends with people your age. But when it comes to trusting someone the most, or sharing your personal feeling, I think the closest person in the world is your mom or dad. Because they understand everything, and they would NEVER,EVER,EVER gossip, rumor, or tell anybody about what you told them. Your parents will never give up on you, or betray you like a friend can.Parents are the best!

3)  I strongly disagree that someone who can't read is unintelligent. Because some people just do not have the wealth, but they still survive! But the earth has very harsh conditions even for the poorest and innocent people! So, you need to be intelligent! Also, they may not have enough money to go to school, or to study!

Miles' Anticipation Guide

I disagree with the notion that “People under the age of 18 should be punished the same way as adults. “ for a multitude of reasons. I disagree because they are not that mature and they don’t understand things as much and they do crazy things. So they should not get punished the same way as adults but they should get punished. Kids are being charged for doing drugs but they are not mature enough and they do funny things and stupid things to be cool.      

I disagree with the notion that “ someone who can’t read is unintelligent “ for a multitude of reasons. A lot of people who can’t read are intelligent because it is true reading makes you smarter but it doesn’t mean that, that is the only thing that will make you smart.  Other things can make you smart such as math or any other subject but not the reading subject because this person does not know how to. When Albert Einstein was young he had troubles with reading but he turned out to be extremely smart.
I agree with the notion that “it is better that young people establish trust with their peers than adults” For a multitude of reasons. Because you should have some friends that are your age because you will grow up with people more like you and also not as much but you will not be the weird person in school who has no friends because that will most likely be really depressed. Also you should have kids who are at the same maturity level as you not everyone but some friends because you will probably grow up better.

The golden ball by Daniel S. 6l short story

The Golden Ball

Michael was fast asleep on the soft wool bed. It has been three days since he found the best treasure of his life. A ball of solid gold and unmatched beauty. He was quick-witted, so he did not stare for it long. Instead he quickly hid it under his shirt and ran off home. It was quite dangerous in the Schefford mine where he found it. His parents both worked as secretaries in the royal offices, and they did not have any time to spend with Michael. He went where he wanted and explored where he needed. The abandoned mine was a very popular place for kids, but also very dangerous. Already two of Michael’s friends have been killed by falling stalactites. The golden ball was only one part of Michael’s numerous treasures, but he adored it most of all. While michael was running home after the discovery of the ball, he spent a lot of time hiding and dodging contrabandits. After all, it was dangerous in victorian times. But the biggest danger was Thomas the crook. He was the meanest and sleaziest of all. He took nearly a quarter of Michael’s treasures. But the golden ball was safe. As much as Michael liked his golden ball he still had to lock it away in one of his treasure chests bulging with valuables.
After a normal week without any treasure hunting and any adventures something very scary for Michael happened. The golden ball was not in it’s chest. It was sitting right on top of his woolen bed. He was Amazed- and tried a desperate and dangerous thing. He called his best friend, Steve. Michael never believed in magic and when something extraordinary would happen he would think little of it. But this was not the time. He had to do something about his most valuable treasure appearing on his bed. Michael and Steve thought about it, and went to the library to research about the strange sphere. They found a very bizarre but not old book about magic quickly and began hastily flipping pages. Then they found it. Article that said nearly everything about the treasure. They began reading it. They quickly found out that the ball was called “The eye of Amanar” and that the last person to have the treasure was Clive Parkinson Meyer who lived in a very old house that looked like it was haunted. The house was located near the city in the countryside. They wanted to question him about the ball. They quickly ran to Michael’s house and began packing up until Steve noticed one thing. The golden ball could not be found anywhere. That made them pack up more quickly, not search for the golden eye. And so they went to the countryside with some old maps and a half-broken compass. But they have packe lots of gems to sell and buy any food and water they needed. They hired three carriages and finally reached their destination.
The old crumbly house stood there towering over Steve and Michael. Michael desperately banged his fist on the slightly decayed door of dark wood. An old man opened the door with a loud creak. He let the two boys in and finally Michael stammered. “Are you Clive ?” he asked in a faint but fast voice. The old man answered with a whisper. “yesss” he said looking sternly but a little bit frightened. Then somehow reading Michael’s mind he said: “the golden ball. you have found it. but only the good souls can have it. I had it once too. But I have committed a bad deed. That is why it disappeared.” The old man’s voice was loud and clear now. Michael barged out of the house and went home without saying a word. He was clearly disappointed with Clive’s words. Then he thought of it. The genius idea that Michael tried desperately. With sadness and despair he gathered his numerous gems and went to the bank. He sold all of them. And received lots of pounds which he then gave to charity. He returned home thinking of nothing. He did not try to dodge the bandits or hiding from hoodlums. He returned home to nothing but a miracle. The golden ball was sitting on his bed, gleaming. But michael gleamed more.

Miles' Zlateh extended Response

(He = zlateh)

How things changed from the way they were in the beginning the end.

The beginning.                                            

He was a barn animal and not a pet.                                                                                            

The travel to sell him
for money for food.

zlateh was a barn animal .

The End

A house pet and basically family.
They have a strong bond with him.

In The beginning the bond between the animal and the humans was not as strong but before they got money for selling him to the butcher the realized that his is like family and never did anything wrong so they got lost while going to the butcher and in a snowstorm and they went home together ( the boy and zlateh).
Now they have a stronger bond and don’t and won’t sell him.

My generalization on the bond is it is strong between a human and an animal but if people like pigs as pets and like dogs too why don’t people usually say lets eat dog tonight but people say lets eat pig for breakfast. Well I think that it is because of people in the past which affected the future. Also what stops people from eating dogs is the fact that almost everyone finds them as pets.
and the biggest thing is the bond just like in the book when he refrained himself from selling the goat to the butcher for money for food .

Zlateh The Goat Extended Response

               Zlateh The Goat

In the beginning there was a family that urgently needed money and the only thing they could sell was a goat named Zlateh. The family had their son to go sell the goat to a butcher. The goat’s relationship with people was good. She trusted them, and new where to go for help. The son (Aaron) had felt bad knowing that he was not just selling her but putting her down to her death. On the way there the goat had odd thoughts about the area around her because everything was different. The roads were different, the dogs were more aggressive, and there were many buildings. When they were walking a strong wind came and got stronger and stronger overtime, Aaron was wondering what was going on because it was a weird time of year for this type of year for this weather. Next it began to hail, snow and storm. They luckily found a haystack where they hid in for shelter through the storm. As they were sitting in the hay they were wondering how this had happened. Aaron and his goat were trapped in the haystack. As Aaron made a cozy hut for them to stay in while the storm passed. To Aaron the goat still seemed like a dumb animal, until the goat started to feed him when he felt hungry. Then he started to speak to the goat like his best friend. He and his goat were trapped in the haystack for 3 days. Until the snow started to fade away and they made their way home. When they got home Aaron told his parents about how Zlateh fed him and they never looked at Zlateh as just an animal buat a part of the family. The thing that majorly changed was their feelings and understanding of Zlateh of how useful she actually is.

Zlateh the goat extended response Daniel S.

At first the family of aaron treated Zlateh just like a goat. An animal. A tool. But Zlateh trusted them, and the humans never did here any harm. But once she could no longer work and give resources, they sent Zlateh with Aaron of to the market to the butcher. To sell her. But when they were walking to the market a strange miracle happened. Heavy snow began to fall. Zlateh and Aaron got into a haystack to survive. Strangely enough Zlateh gave milk and saved Aaron for four days of the terrible heavy snow. Because Zlateh saved Aaron’s life he and his family were so grateful that they never thought of selling Zlateh again. During the four days of survival in the haystack Aaron and zlateh bonded in a relationship higher than friendship. She was like a sister to Aaron. They even communicated and understood each other. When they returned Zlateh was a very precious part of the family because she saved Aaron’s life. The generalization that I can make based on the short story Zlateh the goat is that humans cannot understand and treat animals like friends and family members because they think of them as animals and very unimportant. But when in the short story Aaron and Zlateh survived together they began communicating and understanding each other because of love and friendship.
