THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PYJAMAS MOVIE VS. BOOK

The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas is a book which is based on Jews genocide and narrate the reality of those days in an innocent boy point of view who is German. And also t is a book which becomes a movie after the book published in 2006. The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas expresses those days atmosphere as much objective as it can do. Both movie and the book tells and express those days and human’s feelings in an innocent point of view but in different emotions of the characters, with different events and different effects on reader or viewer.
One of the most important points that take attention is different and similar qualities of emotions and thoughts of the characters. For example in the book father is more authoritative and rude but in the movie, he is more sensitive and friendly. Similarly, in the movie mother is more close to her children and she is very emotional but in the book, she is bossier. However, Bruno and Gretel’s relation is very bad and unsympathetic just like in the book. Also, grandfather is very rude and stubborn to everyone and especially about Jews.
As a one more important topic, in the movie there are lots of events which happens differently or in similar ways and effects movie directly but not with a huge difference. For example, in the movie father came Out-with with his family but in the book, he came before his family. Similarly, the mother doesn’t be polite to Pavel and also she wants him not to tell anyone about the injury but in the movie she thanks to him. Likewise, Shmuel isn’t mentioning anything about his being Jewish and building a hut. However, both in the movie and the book, houses are described very similar to each other. Also, they are moving to the same place and with same people.
Last and the clearest thing is the impression and effects on reader or viewer. As we all know, while we are reading a book, we are creating our own world and visualizing the book in our brain. However, if we only watch the movie we can only see writer’s or director’s perception. It is going on in the same way in this book. While I was reading The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas I created a place which can only include my own creativity and the world which I want to be a member of. However, after I watched the movie, it wasn’t more than a movie for me anymore. So the movie became a disappointment for me.
In conclusion, The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas is very meaningful and special in both movie and the book. Despite lots of similarities, there are some differences that make choices easier: Impression. The book is the world and if someone else creates your own world, how can you become creative and have can you visualize and feel the atmosphere. So the most attractive choice is the book and the most important reason is its impression.

FAHRENHEIT 451

 

Bu dönem okuduğum, Ray Bradbury’nin yazarı olduğu bu denli derin bir kitap olan Fahrenheit 451 romanının bize anlatmak istediği birçok düşüncenin en çok üzerinde durulanı insanların hayatı sorgulaması, düşünmesi ve sürüdeki koyun misali her söyleneni yapmaması gerektiğidir.

Bize fazla bilmenin, cahil olmamanın insanları aslında ne kadar korkutabildiğini, cehaletinse onlara güç verdiğine inandıkları ve cehaleti kullanıp insanları bir kalıp makinesinden çıkarırcasına çoğaltmaya çalışıp herkesi basmakalıp yaratmak işleyişlerini anlıyoruz. Bunu yaparken kullandıkları kitap, kütüphane yangınlarıysa da onlar için bir araç, yol oluyor aslında. Ancak bunu anlatırlarken kullandıkları üslup insanı sıkıyor. Sanki hiç bitmeyecekmiş, sürekli aynı şey anlatılıyormuş gibi hissettirdiği düşünceler kitap boyunca devam ediyor. Bu nedenle de kitap okunurken ara verme ve biraz dinlenme ihtiyacı doğuyor. Bu da kitabın bölünmesine neden oluyor. Konu bakımından sürükleyicilik var ama akıcı olmayışı büyük bir problem yaratıyor. Bunun yanı sıra bana göre eser evrenseldir. Çünkü bilgi her zaman en önemli silah olacaktır ve her zaman onları yok etmek isteyen bireyler bulunacaktır. Çünkü en zor düşman her şeyi bilen düşmandır. Bilen insan çözüm üretir. Yapıcıdır. Durduramazsın. Dur durak bilmez çünkü her zaman gelişmek kendini yenilemek yeni şeyler öğrenmek ister.

Geçmişte ne kadar çok korkulduysa bilgili insanlardan, bilgiden günümüzde de korkulmaktadır. Bu nedenle Fahrenhiet 451 kendi çağının ötesine geçmiş, ilerici, ileri görüşlü bir kitaptır.

HAND WRITING VS. TYPING

 

Who can deny the importance of benefits of writing into our lives?  During our life we always find a way to communicate with each other. Also whenever we have a conversation or do an agreement, we are turning it into writing. And writing makes it more permanent for future. In today life it has two ways to write: by hard or typing. Their purposes are same about conveying information but their methods and effects are completely different.

Firstly, different writing methods affect human and children’s mental growth and ability differently. Children develop fine motor skills and control when learning to write by hand. For example they learn how to avoid poking holes or tearing it. However typing is a very useful alternative to take notes comfortably on computer. Also because of the technology it is easy to reach wherever you write it.

Secondly, different writing methods affect accessibility and usefulness of reaching duration of writing method. For instance writing by hand makes it easier to recognize or remember letter than typing because it doesn’t help learning and remembering if they only print letters and don’t try to form them. On the other hand typing it on the computer or somewhere else is faster and more accessible even if your hand or arm or another part of your body is injured and not available to use. Especially if you are not good and writing you can’t write easily or you can lose it but you can’t lose the one which is on computer.

Thirdly, different writing methods affect legibility and identifying whose writing style is that. This is the most significant reason which pushed me to choose one of them because it is very different one. Writing by hand style gives your writing a character as it becomes highly indivualistic and every writing style has a character depending on this reason. Because of the legibility, shortness, smallness etc. It changes and effects evidences of crimes. So, by using hand writing you can solve a crime. Unlike hand writing, typing helps you to write more legible. For example in some examples, students lose lots of points just because of the legibility of their hand writing. And also there can be some misunderstandings or disagreements. So it can be problematic for bad readers or bad writers.

Even if we want to choose the most standardized and accessible one we shouldn’t forget how significant advantages writing by hand method has. Above all the one which is better should be hard writing, especially to improve some skills which should be gotten from childhood years.

BEING ADMIRABLE

Who can deny the importance of being an admirable person, nowadays? Everybody wants to be an admirable person. Being admirable means to have lots of good qualities and embody whole good qualities. Being special for others. Everybody thinks of being admired by others once in their lifetime. But there are some criterias to be admirable. The most important qualities are honesty, success and courage, respectively.

Firstly, you should be honest if you want to be an admirable person. Honesty means lots of things: loyalty, kindness, respect… Honesty is necessary for your relationships. If you trust someone and if they don’t lie to you, then you believe each other and you never fight because you don’t call to mind that she is lying to you and if you don’t distrust, then you always keep your distance, so you can’t be close friends with someone. If you are honest, everyone trusts, and wants to learn and respect what you think. For example whenever you speak, they always listen to you and care whatever you say. They accept your ideas as true. Honest people knows lots of things. Because everybody shares secrets with them.

Secondly, you should be successful if you want to be an admirable person. And of course you should resolve and pursue for everything to become successful. Success make your life meaningful. Some people inherently have hardworking structure and they become successful everytime. But some of them just try to be hardworking or don’t do anything. If you don’t be inclined to achieve something, earn more money, work for achievement, being famous or more special than the others, your life become something monotone and you just feel that you are living. Because success make us more competitive and that competition make our life excited and meaningful. Survival is as important as meaningful life. If you want to survive you have to earn money and to be loved by the others. Because in today’s world if you don’t have money you are nothing, if someone doesn’t like you and he or she is important, then it may cause you to lose your job or career either.

Thirdly, you should be courageous if you want to be an admirable person. Courage doesn’t always provide success, it also cause problems but the difference between an admirable person and some people is, an admirable people take risks of problems but they constrain themselves if they see that it is imposible. If you don’t take risk you can’t have any chance to success and if you don’t be successful you can’t be admirable person. If you be courageous or act like you are courageous, people think that you make sure of yourself and you are reliable. Courageous people have fears as much as we have got but they have differences than us. They try to destroy or decrease their fears or they get used to live, be successful with them and try not to feel worried. If they confront with adversity they don’t give up, they acknowledge that and try to think what they can do for solve this problem.

All things considered, admirable person can have got different qualities but the most neccessary qualities to be an real admirable person are, honesty, success and courage, respectively. If you want to be an admirable person, it isn’t easy as much as you think but the process is simple, all you have to do is follow these steps, have good qualities and aspire to achievement.

AGE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SIBLINGS

Who can deny the importance of having brothers or sisters? There are two different ways and it is very different from each other because they effect their whole lifes. These two ways are small and large age differences between sublings and they both have advantages and disadvantages.

There are some brothers or sisters who have small age differences between each other. If you have, small age difference with your brothers or sisters there are some advantages. Firstly you can understand each other better because you have similar capacity to understand something, secondly you can share your clothes and makeup items because most probably your body measurements will look like each other and you will want to use more things if your gender is same and thirdly you can communicate better and more because you spend everytime with your brother or sister while large age differences sublings live in different houses because of the older subling wants to live alone.

If you have, small age difference between your brother or sister, there are also some disadvantages, for example, firstly you have to share your items and it can be boring and bad after a while because you may not want to give and share them with someone, secondly you have to see your brothers or sisters everyday and every moment except school and thirdly you can’t get any help from them because they are just learning or didn’t learned yet the things what you didn’t understand so they can’t teach you something.

These two kinds of age differences have both advantages and also disadvantages. Because of this, it is hard to choose one of them. If we compare small and large age differences and their advantages and also disadvantages, I think small age differences is the best.

 

SUITABLE PLACES TO STUDY  

A letter I wrote to the school principal as a homework.

To whom it may concern:

The aim of this report is to make the classrooms better places to study in. While you are studying it is important to be comfortable and not distracting place for students or teachers but it isn’t that easy to create a place like that. So I asked students for their views.

They all thought different ideas for this creative and effective change. It is recommended that the classroom changes should be listed like I did in this report.

  • Increasing the duration of lessons and also break times.
  • Studying and having lessons with phones and iPad’s.
  • Playing more games about lessons like Kahoot!
  • Using smart boards in the lessons
  • Doing worksheets and homework online
  • Reading more books during the lessons
  • Fixing school and class materials: walls, curtains, etc.
  • Sitting on more comfortable chairs
  • Taking cupboards into classroom
  • Changing color of the light

It was felt by most student that improving the classroom would be more useful and efficient to prepare better place to study. Buying and using technology would benefit the majority of students. I would therefore recommend spending money in that way.

If you have any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours faithfully,
