SP = This is shown when Walter describes his son P = “sitting on the floor with the catalogues of all the great schools in America around [him]” with his voice “[rising] in pitch.” E = By indicating that Walter’s voice rose in pitch when he describes his son surrounded by catalogues from great schools, the author uses those catalogues to symbolize hope for the future of his son.
Short Answer 3: “Volunteerism” and “Litany” A = The idea of community service applies to “Never a Better Time for Volunteerism” because volunteering would help the economy, while in “Litany” people should volunteer simply because it’s the right thing to do. SP = This is shown in “Volunteerism” when the author writes P = “In today’s down economy…it’s time for the return of…the volunteer” E = By stating that the economy is down and that as a result we need more volunteers, community service applies to the editorial as an idea that would help the economy. SP = In “Litany,” the idea of community service is shown when the author writes, P = “Gather up in the arms of your pity…all the scum of our weary city.” E = By asking the reader to pity those considered scum, the author suggests that volunteering is the right thing to do, thus applying the idea of community service.
