Self Education

"Snapping Beans," by Lisa Parker, displays a young person struggling with expressing aloud to their grandma their identification with antiquated home and new, modern school.

In Langston Hughes, "Thank You, Ma'am," the domineering woman wishes to rectify the young boy by teaching him respectful manners and leading him in the morally right direction.

In "It's the Law: A Rap Poem," by S. Pearl Sharp, the speaker informs the reader that respecting yourself will lead to respecting others and this would make the other laws unnecessary.
