Expectations Ibis Web Diagram
Transcript of Expectations Ibis Web Diagram
An example of expectations in the book would be the brother expecting Doodle to be able to walk, run, swim, and row just as good if not better than other kids.
Doodle expected himself to be able to run, walk, swim, and row just as good as a regular kid.
Doodle's Mental State
When Doodle was 1 year old he didn't show signs of movement or mental awareness. He just stayed in his bed and just stared into space. Everyone feared that he was mentally or physically disabled. But when Doodle sat up, stared and smiled at him they knew he wasn't mentally disabled.
Quote from the Story.
An example of the brothers expectations would be "They did not know that I did it for myself; that pride, whose slave I was, spoke to me louder than all their voices, and that Doodle walked only because I was ashamed of having a crippled brother. (Hurst 420)
Doodle expected that he would be able to be just as athletic as the other kids. "Does it make any difference?"
"It certainly does" I said. "Now, come on," and I helped him up (Hurst 422) because he did not give up.
Quote from the Story
"Daddy had Mr. Heath, the carpenter, build a little mahogany coffin for him" (Hurst 416)
Everyone expected Doodle to die, even though he didn't
"But Mama, crying told me that even if William Armstrong lived, he would never do these things with me. He might not, she sobbed, even be "all there"... I watched him, my head poked between the iron posts of the foot of the bed, he looked straight at me and grinned. I skipped through the rooms, down the echoing halls, shouting, "Mama, he smiled. He's all there! He's all there!" and he was. (Hurst 416).
