The Friday Everything Changed
- The boys were upset because “it was something they dreamed about since grade one” “it meant you were one of the big guys.” “something of theirs was being threated” so they weren’t happy
- The boys threated the girls. As soon as class was over they went right for alma. But instead of the girls just watching her get beaten up they stood up for her. Almas cousin came and talked to alma, he said “carrying the water isn’t that fun anyway. On cold days it’s really hard work, you`re better off in the warm school.” But alma said “I’m sorry Arnold but I’m used to cold weather. In the winter, I walk to school same as you
- Almas seat mate is the one telling the story.
- The setting took place in the 1900s sometime after the war because they were referring to German war planes, the class room was a one room school. It didn’t have running water, but instead it had a bucket of water. It’s a person vs society conflict because alma Niles was switching the rules about girls having no rights.
- Alma Niles is the protagonist because she was the one who asked the question “why can’t girls carry the water bucket too?”
- Everything changed on Friday because that was the day alma Niles asked why can’t girls carry the water too. Girls can do anything the guys can do.
