     The book Holes is not very predictable their were a lot of times were I have predicted that Stanley would be let go instead of digging holes. There was a another part of this were I thought that it would be nice just ding holes. The story plot was right and once again I stand corrected. As you can see this were I predicted on how the story line would be different and my educated guess was wrong.  



McFarland Usa Film Analysis

The director Niki Caro created a film called McFarland which took place in a small town. This film is about how one coach inspires a group of Latino teenagers. Coach White changes the boys lives when he creates a cross country team where they discover they have  potential and learn from each other to become state champs.

In the movie McFarland, the students learn there is more to life than picking. Another lesson this team learns is that no matter where you come from you can achieve anything. This team support the thesis that the learn that they have a talent as a result they also learn  from each other. In the scene where  they earn the last place slot they made it to other races which  therefore leads this  team to the state finals. Another reason why this team has potential  is because Danny Diaz always came in last place whether it was practice or competitions. At the end of the movie Danny Diaz proves to himself and others he doesn't finish in last place so he makes up points for the team and McFarland wins the state championship. As you can see these are reasons why this movie scene supports my claim on how these group of latinos have talent and or potential.

 USA as a whole has no experience of  what  these kids have been through as a team or group. In this film Niki Caro shows that when the scene comes between Mcfarland and Palo Alto they make fun of them. The reason they have less opportunity  is because     they have to help work and to provide for their families. On the other hand the other teams do even have to provide work to put food on the table.

As you can see these are challenges that this team faces and how they overcome this situation and how they truly earn the american dream.    


Cajas De Carton/ The Circuit : Stories From the Life of a Migrant Child [Spanish Edition] - Francisco Jiménez


This book was a great book  totally recommend  it to people that have a struggle in their life  such as living in hard conditions. Such as where you live. Through the book  Francisco Jimenez lives from place to place following the crops to make money so his father can provide for his family. On page    22 “The Circuit” the  quote says that “ tent city had no address it was simply known as a rural santa  maria. As you can see it is hard living place to place.

I have a self connection with francisco jimenez I used to live from place to place i've moved 7 times already and my mom is thinking about moving again to texas. Such as when I lived in santa clara we just moved into our new first house And as soon as I got used to how things work my mom says ,“ How do you feel about moving”. This connects to francisco jimenez when the story plot changes to tent city,corcoran.

My mom can connect to panchito when panchito and his brother convince his father that to live in santa maria in return getting a job. This connects to my mom when she had to provide for three kids she got a job and has been working all her life to provide for her children. As you can see I can connect my mom  to panchito because they had similar struggles.
