This is what I have I just want to see if I did it right and if I can improve anything.
In My Brother’s Keeper by Jay Bennett, the main character is very soft-spoken in the beginning. He does everything right and is getting a good education. His brother is a fighter and he hits a man with his car. He always helps out his brother and in this one time, he'll be putting his education on the line. It takes him a while to decide, but as the story ends he says that he'll never be his brother's keeper.

In "The Scarlet Ibis", the narrator went through the right of passage of family dying because he was there for the death of his brother. The narrator also realized that he had to face the truth that the love he had for his brother was pushed away by his arrogance and his want for Doodle to be normal. The narrator was a boy who was involved with his brothers because their parents made him take care of Doodle, thus forcing him to grow up faster than he should of. He loved his brother but did not accept him because he was handicapped. He wanted to push Doodle to achieve more than he could which ended up causing the death of his bother at the end of the story. He not only teaches Doodle how to walk but then sets out to teach Doodle a number of other life skills, including running, rowing, and climbing trees.

  1. Read this very carefully:
    https://www.dictionary.com/browse/rites-of-passage

    Now, revise those paragraphs, making sure you are crystal clear about
    1) what the rite of passage is for the character you chose, according to the definition in that linked article and
    2) making it crystal clear who is who (among all those "he" and "him" pronouns).

  13. Jay Bennett's story, My Brother's Keeper, introduces a very soft-spoken main character. He does everything right and is getting a good education. His brother is a fighter and he hits a man with his car. He always helps out his brother and in this one time, he'll be putting his education on the line. It takes him a while to decide, but as the story ends he says that he'll never be his brother's keeper.

    In "The Scarlet Ibis", the narrator went through the right of passage of a family member dying because he witnessed the death of his brother. Additionally, he realized that his arrogance and desire for Doodle to be normal pushed away his love for his brother. He became involved with his brothers because their parents forced him to take care of Doodle, which forced him to grow up too quickly. Despite loving his brother, he did not accept him because he was handicapped. Doodle was pushed to achieve more than he was capable of which caused his death at the end of the story. In addition to teaching Doodle how to walk, he then teaches him other life skills, such as running, rowing, and climbing trees.

    this is what I put, got a 100%
