Analysis: A&P
After reading the short story A&P I came to the conclusion, that the author wanted to portray the typical teenage boy. Sammy the narrator in the story shows his immaturity throughout the story especially when a group of girls walk in the grocery store only wearing their swimming suits. Sammy who is extremely juvenile and kind of creepy observes every detail of the girls, especially one girl in particular he nicknamed Queenie. For example, he notices Queenie’s bra straps dangling in a sensual way from which he fantasies about her inner self. Sammy continues his immature behavior when he disregarders customers in effort to impress the girls creating the illusion he is a bad boy. Sammy then tries to socialize with the girls by pointing out that the A&P is in the middle of the town and know where near the beach.
Then Lengel, the store manager at the A&P, ridicules the girls for wearing their scantily bathing suits in the grocery store. In a last ditch effort to impress the lady’s Sammy tells his boss that he quits because of the way he treated the girls, try’s to saying it loud enough for the girls to hear him with no avail. After the girls leave Lengel tries to persuade Sammy not to quit in fear he will bring upon disappointment from his parents. Sammy the strong willed teenager he is says, “It seems to me that once you begin a gesture it’s fatal not to go through with it”. Rather than thinking with his head Sammy is thinking with something else and not factoring in the consequence his actions. Sammy’s immaturity really shines through, throughout the story as he tries to court Queenie. I believe the author paints an accurate picture of the typical teenage boy that is trying to impress the opposite sex by acting like a rebellious bad…...

Edec Reflection Paper

...subtract yet. The experiment preformed by Betty Repacholi was also fascinating to me. Where a 14-month and 18 month old baby were given a bowl of broccoli and a bowl of gold fish and told to give the experimenter some. Repacholi found that the 18-month year old baby was bale to understand what the experimenter preferred while at the same time the 18-month may want something else. This is interesting because it shows how the brain varies between an 18-month child and a 14-month child. I agree with Gopnik’s conclusion, mainly because she is an expert in this field and most of her findings and anyalsis was convincing. I feel Gopnik is very talented in helping the reader grasp the concepts she is trying to portay. I had one concern with Gopniks anylasis from the blicket detector. Gopnik claimed that four year olds were superior to adults at grasping the concept of the blicket detector because adults seemed to rely more on their prior knowledge that things usually do not work that way, even though previous evidence implied. I feel that Gopnik does not elaborate or show enough evidence to make this statement true. I don’t think this experiment can prove that babies are actually better than adults at considering unusual possibilities....
