Hey, wieder eine kurze Summary, über dessen Bewertung ich mich sehr freuen würde! Die Geschichte ist hier verlinkt: http://mcgrawlibrary.weebly.com/uploads/1/7/8/4/17841249/eleven_-_sandra_cisneros_-_narrative_example.pdf
Auch habe ich versucht, eine Charakterisierung über die "Lehrerin" zu schreiben. Vorgabe bei der Summary waren 150 Wörter, vielen Dank! Ihr rettet mir echt mein Leben ;)
The short story “Eleven” by Sandra Cisneros is about the birthday of an eleven-year-old girl, who wants to be older to forget embarrassing moments.
The teacher, Mrs Price, finds a red sweater and asks in the round of students, who the owner is.
As no one answers, she supposes it belongs to the protagonist, the young girl, and puts the sweater on her desk.
The young girl feels powerless as she would much younger, because she is not able to give a directly answer.
So the young girl just wants to be older and clamp on the idea, celebrating her birthday with her mother and father later.
As she moves away from the red sweater, the teacher forces her to wear the clothing and while the young girl puts the sweater on, she feels embarrassed and hurt.
Mrs Price is an important character from the short story “Eleven” by Sandra Cisneros and is the protagonists teacher. She seems being ignorant and selfish because embarrassed the protagonist in front of the whole class (page 1, line 43), and does not realize her being hardly hurt.
Mrs. Price forces the protagonist to put on the red sweater, which the girl finds disgusting.
For me Mrs Price should not be a teacher, because she cannot work with kids and is just “work-oriented”.
