Transcript: Poetry Casebook Shel Silverstein •Born: 25 September 1930 •Birthplace: Chicago, Illinois •Died: 10 May 1999 (heart failure) •Best Known As: Author of Where the Sidewalk Ends Name at birth: Sheldon Alan Silverstein Shel Silverstein is best known for his quirky and irreverent children's books and poetry, including the modern classics The Giving Tree (1964), Where the Sidewalk Ends (1974) and A Light in the Attic (1981). Silverstein got his start when Hugh Hefner hired him in the 1950s to be the resident poet/cartoonist for Playboy magazine. While contributing poems, cartoons and travelogues to the magazine, Silverstein also wrote songs, among them the 1972 hit "The Cover of the Rolling Stone" by Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show and "A Boy Named Sue" by Johnny Cash. He was also nominated in 1991 for an Oscar, for the song "I'm Checkin' Out," performed by Meryl Streep in the movie Postcards From the Edge (1990, written by Carrie Fisher). His other books include A Giraffe and a Half (1964), The Missing Piece (1976) and Falling Up (1996). Poem 1 Whosever room this is should be ashamed! His underwear is hanging on the lamp. His raincoat is there in the overstuffed chair, And the chair is becoming quite mucky and damp. His workbook is wedged in the window, His sweater's been thrown on the floor. His scarf and one ski are beneath the TV, And his pants have been carelessly hung on the door. His books are all jammed in the closet, His vest has been left in the hall. A lizard named Ed is asleep in his bed, And his smelly old sock has been stuck to the wall. Whosever room this is should be ashamed! Donald or Robert or Willie or-- Huh? You say it's mine? Oh, dear, I knew it looked familiar! paraphrase poem 1 This poem is in second person and he is shocked to find such a messy room. Clothing and other items are strewn everywhere and he thinks that whomever it belonged to should be ashamed. It turns out that it is his own room. Poetry terms in poem 1 Messy Room by Shel Silverstein contains an internal rhyme in the lines 7 and 11. He uses free verse but ends his with a couplet. In the fifth line of the poem, it contains a consonance: "His workbook is wedged in the window" Poem 1 criticism "My analysis of this poem would be not only about a messy room. But maybe a messy life. He explains all these things that are wrong with this persons room, not knowing whose it is. Then he realizes it's actually his. I think many people do that in their life. They look at someone's life and judge it. They criticize every point of that without looking at the own imperfect aspects of their own life." poem 2 One Inch Tall by Shel Silverstein If you were only one inch tall, you'd ride a worm to school. The teardrop of a crying ant would be your swimming pool. A crumb of cake would be a feast And last you seven days at least, A flea would be a frightening beast If you were one inch tall. If you were only one inch tall, you'd walk beneath the door, And it would take about a month to get down to the store. A bit of fluff would be your bed, You'd swing upon a spider's thread, And wear a thimble on your head If you were one inch tall. You'd surf across the kitchen sink upon a stick of gum. You couldn't hug your mama, you'd just have to hug her thumb. You'd run from people's feet in fright, To move a pen would take all night, (This poem took fourteen years to write-- 'Cause I'm just one inch tall). paraphrase of poem 2 This poem tells of a very tiny man, just one inch tall. Silverstein describes how normal daily things done by regular sized people would take this man a very long time because of his size. A new perspective is shown here to compare how different things could be. He ends the poem with saying that this person is him. Poetry terms for Poem 2 This poem uses a refrain at the end of each stanza, "If you were one inch tall" A different view on perspective is used to compare how life would be like if you were one inch tall. He uses a rhyme scheme of A,A,B,B,B,C in each stanza. Criticize of Poem 2 The poem shows how different life would be like if you were only one inch tall. He describes how ordinary day activities would be very difficult to do and this could relate to people with disablities or a disease. I think he is trying to show how everybody does not have the same ablility to do something. poem 3 Forgotten Language Once I spoke the language of the flowers, Once I understood each word the caterpillar said, Once I smiled in secret at the gossip of the starlings, And shared a conversation with the housefly in my bed. Once I heard and answered all the questions of the crickets, And joined the crying of each falling dying flake of snow, Once I spoke the language of the flowers. . . . How did it go? How did it go? Paraphrase of poem 3 Silverstein tells about how once he spoke the language of many things but now he has forgotten them. He had spoken to flowers, caterpillars, stars, flies, crickets, and snow. poetry terms in poem 3 Imagery is


Transcript: Fast food advertisements that glorify meals packed in saturated fats and artery clogging ingredients should be revoked from children's channels and completely taken out of schools to help reduce the alarming rates of childhood obesity. .” Just like a cigarette advertisement would never be pictured in a hospital, advertisements for McDonald’s should not be featured in the Olympics. It is a confusing message for a child to see a McFlurry advertisement next to the fit Michael Phelps. Athletes are trained to take care of their bodies so they can perform at their top potential, not scarf back a BigMac moments before a race However, In 1990's congresss finally broke and The Children's Televison Act was created to hinder amount of advertising aired during child programming should be limited to ten and a half minutes per hour and on weekends twelve minutes per hour. In Conclusion: It has been argued that fast food companies should not be solely responsible for making kids obese. Many refute that despite all the advertisements in the world, children are not controlled by them. It is their choice if they want to eat fast food or beg their Mom and Dad for it Thesis! “school districts are pioneering a practice... selling advertisements on pieces of school property to help make up for some of the money lost through state budget cuts” -Morgan Smith children are born with obesity genes? ... small School breakfast and lunches all must meet the federal nutritious standards made by the state however, foods like Coca-Cola, Lays, and Pop-Tarts are exempt from meeting these requirements (Story, Kaphingst, French). If the availability of these separately sold non-state regulated foods are limited and more fruits and vegetables are available, then this healthier alternative would give kids the option to make the right eating choices instead of only being given the availability of food high in fat content. Instead of putting money elsewhere, schools, the ideal environments for education to take place, need to budget better to educate children about nutrition and the consequences of an unhealthy lifestyle. "AMBUSH MARKETING" Finally... Marketers should be honing in their efforts into making kids conscious and informed consumers, instilling children with the knowledge to purchase and prepare healthy foods as adults. Billions of dollars are being used annually towards creating advertisements appealing to the eyes of children in hopes to capture their attention to be hungry for a Happy Meal. Kids are going to continue to be bombarded with advertisements in baseball parks, in schools, and in airports. The billions invested into the advertisements should be directed to inform kids of healthy choices. ... small + Banning commercials and advertisements that glorify fast food is the step in the right direction to reduce consumption of unhealthy foods and in the long run lessen the rates of childhood obesity. Substituting healthy foods and educating kids on the benefits of their alternatives will market a long healthy and disease free life to our younger generation. Kids are entirely susceptible to the media influencing unhealthy eating choices, and research is clear that marketing unhealthy snacks does increase their preference and consumption of fast food Parent Television Council’s president Brent Bozell comments, “The soft porn by Paris Hilton has alienated families and exposed millions of children to raunchy content that has no place on television during primetime hours” Fast food industries have successfully targeted children through advertisements from television to the internet to public schools. 25 Approximately 22 million children under 5 years of age are overweight across the world. In the United States, the number of overweight children and adolescents has doubled in the last two to three decades, and similar doubling rates are being observed worldwide, including in developing countries and regions where an increase in Westernization of behavioral and dietary lifestyles is evident. (Deckelbaum and Williams) Fast food restaurants create emotional appeal to the consumers. A few scholars have thought restrictions should be made on advertising because a child’s comprehension is limited. Attempts from advocacy groups have been made to persuade the Federal Trade Commission to ban television advertising to children all followed by denial in large part to the political influence of the food industry. The Association of Broadcasters lobbied congress to prevent any restrictions on children’s ads. + Next to time at home, kids spend the majority of their time at school. With this in mind, it makes school grounds the perfect feeding zone for fast food industry to market their restaurants. Within the barriers of school walls, students are said to be the perfect captive audience. Evidence shows that schools can provide healthier food options without breaking the bank and losing money. .

Transcript: Thesis: What are the Current Child Custody Laws? What are some good aspects of the laws? What about flaws? How can we improve these laws for the child's immediate future? Also, how can we improve the laws to benefit the child's possible short or long-term effects? Current Child Custody Laws in California -The best interest of the child -Which parent is more likely to encourage frequent visits with another parent -Which parent is more likely to meet the child's wishes(usually at the age of 12+) -History of domestic violence or drug use Sometimes the custody could be granted to a third party custodian if there is a possibility that the child would be in danger The way these states should be evaluating each parent about who would make the better judgements, decisions, and meet the child's needs are some of the ways these laws could affect the child's future Making those decisions will help improve how the child will turn out in the future and affect their immediate future; for example: transition to living conditions, education and relationships with peers are all ways that could drastically alter the child's future and well being. If the states continue to evaluate parents with the current laws presented, this issue may still remain. By educating parents before the process of child divorce begins, is another solution of how to help improve the chances of the child having a better future. It could also prevent conflict between parents while going through the process of divorce. There would be less worry or concern about how the children are going to turn out. Parents must consider the following factors while going through the process of determining Child Custody: Current Child Custody Laws in Colorado Divorce and Child Custody That being said, there are many ways to improve the laws and the way that each parent acts. The process of a divorce should be taken seriously because every child deserves to have a bright future no matter what the outcome between their parents. Parents should be able to settle their differences in a civil manner and consider their child's feelings, needs, and most important future. If the laws remain the same by thoroughly evaluating each parent, the child will have a better well being, future and will not receive any short or long term affects. Gaining custody can be hard but parents should make sure that they have a custody plan so that they are prepared for the possible argument that is to come when going through the process of a divorce. Short and long-term effects should also be taken in to consideration by each parent while going through the process of divorce. The way parents act can change a child's future. Although a divorce may seem frustrating, if parents make wise decisions, watch what they say and how they act, this can help eliminate the short and possible long term affects that the child has invested in. Parents must consider the following factors based on the child's best interest: -Which parent is more likely to meet the child's wishes, as well as their own wishes -The status of the relationship between the child and the parent -Which parent would have a better affect on the child as far as adjustments -The mental and physical health of bot child and parent Different Types of Child Custody: Legal Custody: legal authority to make major decisions on behalf of the child Sole Legal Custody: One parent makes the decisions for their child Joint Legal Custody: Both parents are able to make the decisions for their child Physical Custody: Determining where the child will the most after the parents split up Sole Physical Custody: The child lives at only one parent's home Joint Physical Custody: The child takes turn living with both parents
