Journal 3 Alec Soule

       My favorite chapter from The House on Mango Street is " Louie, His cousin and His Other Cousin". This is my favorite chapter because Louie stole a car and We already knew he stole a car before it was stated. The theme in this story is innocence. They put handcuffs on him and put him in the back of a cop car. The kids wave as he gets arrested and taken away, they have yet to learn about the trials of life.

       The language is at its best when Louis’s cousin realizes he’s been caught and tries to get away and crash the car,“Marin screamed and we ran down the block where the cop car’s siren spun a dizzy blue. The nose of that yellow Cadillac was all pleated like an alligator’s…”.

        A major role model in my adolescence would probably be my Spanish Teacher from high school who gave me a lot of advice for trails that he had experienced in his life, because he knew i would experience the same difficult trials in my life. I think i learned well from him because he was always herd when he spoke, but he never had to raise his voice for the class to listen.


  1. That is a sign of a great teacher. To be that influential and use your powers for good, that is what teaching is all about.

  2. I also had teachers like that, they helped me to become the person I am today.
