Perspectives/Points of View
The public did not realize Miss Narwin's true nature and thought of her badly.

Miss Narwin was forced to resign.

Phillip was thought to be a hero, but was actually mocked in school.

Phillip moved to Washington Academy, a private school.
Americans were blinded by their strong patriotic perspective and supported Phillip.

Allison Dorsett, Todd Becker, and Coach Jamison supported Narwin and started to dislike him after the incident.

News articles sided with Phillip and his "fight for patriotism", which dictated the overall attitude of the nation on this incident.
Book's Relation to Theme
Epic Rap Battles of History


Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light, what so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming?

Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the perilous fight,

o'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?

Time To Vote For

Favorite Rapper!
Everyone, please

for directions on how to vote.
Prior to formulating rushed and inaccurate conclusions, consider all perspectives, because misunderstandings may follow.

In the book and real life, many people draw conclusions using only one part of the story.
"On behalf of our membership we strongly condemn your suppression of patriotism in the American School System."-Young Americans for America (Jessica Wittington)-Page 130

"To Margaret Narwin, ...It seems to me that people like you-who don't believe in patriotism-cause the problems. You should find a better profession for your lack of ability."-Linda Dorchester-Page 140

"Dear Margaret Narwin, ...I am dismayed and horrified that in this day and age a colleague of mine should suspend a student from school for singing the national anthem... The profession does not need people like you who make it so hard for the rest of us."-Carlton Haven-Page 140

"Margaret Narwin, I'm a veteran who fought for his country and gave his blood and I really hate people like you."-David Maik-Page 141

"Margaret Narwin, Surely you have something better to do with your classroom authority than attacking kids who express their love of our country."-Laura Jacobs-Page 141

All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.

Miss Narwin?

Phillip Malloy?

Which story do you believe in?
Miss Narwin sends Phillip Malloy to the office twice for humming the national anthem of the United States while it is played during the announcements.
-All the people who call in during the "Jake Barlow Talk Show" bashed Miss Narwin by calling her rude things such as an anti-patriot. -When one person sided with Narwin, he was quickly shot down.
-This caused Miss Narwin to regret her life.

Telegrams Written to Narwin
Book's Relation to Theme
"She shouldn't be allowed to teach."-Page 110
At the end of the book Phillip is asked to lead the class in singing the national anthem, but he admits that he doesn't actually know the words.

This shows that everyone's judgement was wrong; they should look at both perspectives in order to get the whole truth.
"She's taking away rights."-Page 112
The public jumped to conclusions, without seeing both sides.
As our theme said, you have to look at both sides of an argument before deriving conclusions.
In the rap, you are able to hear two very different sides and opinions of the same incident. (Miss Narwin and Phillip Malloy)
Then you drew conclusions the proper way, as our theme stated.
-The telegrams were sent to Miss Narwin only with Phillip Malloy's side of the story.
-This also encouraged Harrison High's request for Miss Narwin to resign.
"This creep of a teacher comes."-Page 116
"She has no right to do what she does."-Page 112
