Checklist imagine that your local library has invited community members to submit proposals for a fundraiser. you are the student representative on the committee to choose the best proposal. read the two proposals, paying close attention to their similarities and differences. consider whether or not each proposal is logistically feasible, which fundraiser will most appeal to members of your community, and which fundraiser will likely raise more money. which proposal do you think the committee should choose? write an essay in which you make a case for your choice. support your argument with references to specific details in each proposal. proposal 1: the best way to get people invested in the library is to show them the joy of reading. for that reason, the library should hold a book sale. people could donate books that they no longer want, and the librarians could find books that the library no longer needs. volunteers would need to sort the books into categories and arrange them in an inviting way, like at a bookstore. books should be inexpensive so people will buy more of them – maybe fifty cents for paperbacks and two dollars for hardcover books. a book sale would appeal to people of all ages, from little kids to older people. there should also be a table where people can sign up for library cards. that way, if visitors do not find any books they want at the sale, they can come back to the library. proposal 2: a great way to make money for the library would be holding a car wash. the softball team at my school raised over $400 at their car wash last year! the car wash could be held in the library parking lot on a saturday morning. you could ask local high school students to volunteer to wash the cars. that would be a great way to get students involved with the library. it takes two or three volunteers to wash a car quickly, so you would need at least ten volunteers. you could charge around ten dollars per car. even people who are not very interested in reading like to have a clean car, so you would get a lot of people to stop by who might not otherwise come to a library fundraiser.

Chicago by carl sandburg hog butcher for the world, tool maker, stacker of wheat, player with railroads and the nation's freight handler; stormy, husky, brawling, city of the big shoulders: they tell me you are wicked and i believe them, for i have seen your painted women under the gas lamps luring the farm boys. and they tell me you are crooked and i answer: yes, it is true i have seen the gunman kill and go free to kill again. and they tell me you are brutal and my reply is: on the faces of women and children i have seen the marks of wanton hunger. and having answered so i turn once more to those who sneer at this my city, and i give them back the sneer and say to them: come and show me another city with lifted head singing so proud to be alive and coarse and strong and cunning. flinging magnetic curses amid the toil of piling job on job, here is a tall bold slugger set vivid against the little soft cities; fierce as a dog with tongue lapping for action, cunning as a savage pitted against the wilderness, bareheaded, shoveling, wrecking, planning, building, breaking, rebuilding, under the smoke, dust all over his mouth, laughing with white teeth, under the terrible burden of destiny laughing as a young man laughs, laughing even as an ignorant fighter laughs who has never lost a battle, bragging and laughing that under his wrist is the pulse. and under his ribs the heart of the people, laughing! laughing the stormy, husky, brawling laughter of youth, half-naked, sweating, proud to be hog butcher, tool maker, stacker of wheat, player with railroads and freight handler to the nation. which type of figurative language does the poet use most often in "chicago"? a. rhyme b. simile c. metaphor d. personification

Read this excerpt from wheels of change by sue macy.that said, it's hard to grasp the full extent of the bicycle's impact on americans in the late 19th century—particularly female americans. imagine a population imprisoned by their very clothing; the stiff corsets, heavy skirts, and voluminous petticoats that made it difficult to take a deep breath, let alone exercise. add to that the laws and social conventions that cemented a man's place as head of the household and holder of the purse strings. how suffocated women must have felt. and how liberated they must have been as they pedaled their wheels toward new horizons.what is the central idea of the excerpt
