About Trey

β€œI've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life." I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one. I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I've learned that I still have a lot to learn. I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

Berry

Standard

Lecture notes attached here Berry

Now you can strikingly see the comparison of Berry to Paul Robeson; remember him? The tone of this short story changes from the very last paragraph. You could have sense that something would have happen from the final lines leading up to the end.

Did Berry deserve to be treated that way? Was he misunderstood? In many ways he was.

I want you guys to read this and analyze each paragraph; noticing the writer’s style and choice of words. Keep reading with passion;

Best Regards πŸ™‚

For my Students

Standard

This page was created in an effort to help out to my students and even others out there. Its going to become an arena where CSEC Literature and Language concepts can be shared and discussed according to what is outlined in the syllabus.
With this i hope to gear my loved students in the path of success in the Arts and literature of Language. There is going to be MS word documents and videos as well as Power Point presentations on the various topics and chapters I’ll be covering throughout this term; leading up to CXC.
I am looking forward for all my students’ cooperation and togetherness in making this an unforgettable and useful experience.
