Text: The Scarlet Ibis By James Hurst

The Scarlet Ibis is about a boy and his brother, called doodle. Doodle was to die due to disadvantages. However doodle lives and learns on to walk and run. James and Doodle start from a shaken to a good and bonded relationship. In this text I learned that brother's pride would get to the best of him, showing doodles early death. Brother would not let go of his pride and kept pushing doodle to be the ideal brother but this would lead to doodles early death.

Qoute from the scarlet ibis

I did not know then that pride is a wonderful, terrible thing, a seed that bears two vines, life and death. (3.12)

This quote means that brother's pride to push doodle to make him the ideal brother would lead to the early death of doodle.


To be able to read and write at an excelling rate

Excelling in this area will help me write better and understand words, sentences, or phrases i don't know.

Goal 2

To understanding the work or meaning of the texts. Understanding texts will help me know more about books, poems, or literature. This is important because it can help with careers in writing or reading.

One essential question

What rights should all humans be guaranteed?

I think Humans should have all their guaranteed rights, no rights can mean harm and death to others. In the book 'Night' by Elie Wiesel, many are stripped of their rights and were beaten and made slaves. They were treated like animals and killed them in horrific ways especially towards jews.

qoute from night

Human suffering anywhere concerns men and women everywhere.

I have grown to write greater and read more, with these experiences i can use to handle expectations in the road ahead and out of high school.


It is reflective that writing and reading are two of the most important actions in humanity, with reading and writing we have math, biology, and even history recorded within the pages.


This year has prepared me to compete and maybe pass the remaining years. Throughout it all i can gain more experience and skill to help me in the future.
