You use a question mark if the sentence is a direct question.


What time is it?

You do not use a question mark if the question is embedded, like:
I asked him what time it was.

But if the embedded part is a quoted sentence (that could be used by itself) the question mark reappears:
I asked him: "What time is it?"

You may also use a question mark (between parentheses) if you want to express doubt about something:
He seems to be a very honest (?) man.

Plagiarism is using some else's work or words without giving the original author credit, and or pretending that their work is yours.


Students are often guilty of plagiarism when they take whole paragraphs or even an entire article off of the internet and present the work or words as their own to complete an assignment.

Students need to be careful when using Socratic answers. To quote the answer provided in its entirety without noting where the answer came from is plagiarism.

It is not plagiarism if the student rephrases the answer in their own words. Combining the answer with some of the student's own work is not plagiarism if the answer is only a small part of the entire article. But it is always best to avoid any appearance of plagiarism by noting when the information was obtain. This can be done with footnotes or in notes at the end of a chapter or article.

The Bibliography should always give a complete list of all of the sources used in the article or work.

Personal Note as a teacher I would google the articles cited in the Biblography as well as the Title and subject of the student's assignment. If I found that the student had used whole sections or an entire article I would fail the student with opportunity to make up or repeat the assignment.


Antonym = A word opposite in meaning with another
Antithesis = A person or thing that is the direct opposite of somebody or something else


Antonym's relate to specific words, while antithesis relates to things and people. For example:
The antonym of happy is sad, while the antithesis of fire is water.
The antonym of good is bad, while the antithesis of the sky is the ground.
The antonym of traditional is contemporary, while the antithesis of Harry Potter is Voldemort

Notice that the words I use for antonyms are usually abstract concepts, things that you can't really visualize by themselves in reality, while the things and people I use for antithesis can be visualized. Essentially, the difference between antonym and antithesis is that an antonym is a word having the exact opposite definition of another, while antithesis is being the exact opposite, flat out.

I hope that helped!

Let's expand I'll. Then let's see what we've got

#color(red)(I) color(white)(.) color(orange)(will) color(white)(.) color(blue)(n e ver) color(white)(.) color(green)(understa nd) color(white)(.) color(pink)(physics)#

#color(orange)(o ran g e)=verb#
#color(pink)(p i nk)=?#

So, will is our verb. But, we're looking for the verb phrase, which means the verb and the object. Now, it can be hard to tell the difference between the "object" and the "subject," but the subject acts on the object. So, is physics acting on you, or are you acting on physics? So, "physics" is the object and "I" is the subject.

#color(red)(I) color(white)(.) color(orange)(will) color(white)(.) color(blue)(n e ver) color(white)(.) color(green)(understa nd) color(white)(.) color(pink)(physics)#

#color(red)(red)=s u bject#
#color(orange)(o ran g e)=verb#
#color(pink)(p i nk)=object#

Now we have the verb #+# object, so we have our verb phrase


Montag's destination was to see the world the way it really is and to let the world touch him deeply inside.


On page 162 -163Montag says " We'll just start walking today and see the world the and way the world walks around and talks the way it really looks. ... and will while none of it will be me when it goes in after a while it'll all gather together inside and it'll be me.

The world of the city was all illusion nothing was real. Nothing was allowed to really touch a person deeply. People were suppose to be happy a surface happiness.

Captain Beatty explains this on pages 59-62 " page 61 If you don't want a man unhappy politically don't give him too sides to a question to worry him better yet give him none. "
page 61 -62" The important thing for you to remember Montag is we're the Happiness Boys ..... We stand against the small tide of those who want to make everyone unhappy with conflicting theory and thought. ... I don't think you realize how important you are we are to our happy world as it stands now.

Montage wanted the world to actually touch him to change him. He was angry at the superficiality of the illusion of the city world with its wall theaters and lack of thoughts and reality.
