Kenneth and Monisha Charlie’s voice Charlie’s New Tone Charlie’s attitude and emotion of his writing is vibrant and exciting. His writing is more confident and stronger though he still has a ways to go. Ex. ”Dr. Strauss showed me how to keep the TV turned low so now I can sleep. I don’t hear a thing.” When I read this I read this as if he is content and enthusiastic. Charlie’s Expression (Diction) Charlie is using a more complex vocabulary. He talks about the new things he is learning and about how well he is progress. He also mentions the new technology he is being introduced to ( television he received from Dr. Strauss). Ex. “( Punctuation, is; fun ! )” Ex. ( I just looked up the word in the dictionary Dr. Strauss gave me. The word is subconscious. Adj. of the nature of mental operations yet not present in consciousness; as subconscious conflict of desires. ) Grammar Charlie’s grammar is progressing astoundingly. His punctuation and spelling have come a long ways. Ex. “ I beat Algernon!” People in Charlie’s Life Charlie has a fair amount of people in his life who care for him. He finds comfort when he’s around certain ones, others, he is learning that he prefers to stay away from. He also notices the motives for which people speak of him. Ms. Kinnian: His Teacher & Mentor Ms. Kinnian is the one who had recommended him for the operation. He is comfortable when he’s around her. He feels that she supports him and believes in him. She makes him feel excited about learning new things, such as when she teaches him to use a comma. The “period with a tail”. He looks up to her as a smart person and he considers her a “gen’ius”. (genius) Drs. Nemur and Strauss: His Doctors Drs. Nemur and Strauss are the doctors that perform the operation on him. He before feels like Strauss is on his side, and Nemur isn’t. This changes by him thinking that both of them now believe in him. He is still confused about how he’s supposed to learn in his sleep from a tv though. Charlie’s Co-Workers Charlie’s co-workers have always made fun of him. Every time they said “you pulled a Charlie”, he felt that everybody liked him. This changes when he notices that they’re making fun of him and he expresses that he feels “ashamed”. Summary Charlie finally notices how his “friends” actually feel about him. He’s ashamed to ever have believed that they were his friends, or that they even liked him. He feels more confident towards the operation and feels supported by both doctors, something that before he thought was untrue. He stills sleeps with his tv on and now understands the state of mind he’s in while sleeping that lets him learn while sleeping. He knows his in a subconscious state of mind. He now uses a dictionary and looks up the words he does not know how to spell. Also, he beat Algernon for the first time in one of the tests.
