  • In Mrs Burrows Seventh Grade English Class, I Wrote A Paper Entitled Women Vs Men In The Work Force I Researched For Weeks An - 1,275 words
    In Mrs. Burrows seventh grade English class, I wrote a paper entitled Women vs. Men in the Work Force. I researched for weeks and weeks to get all of the information I could on pay differences, percentages of working women and what jobs they were doing. In 1988, my paper focused on sexual discrimination and the wage difference. For example, in 1998, women received 63% of the pay men received for the same job. I remember finding that out and asking my dad why that was happening. My father, parent of two daughters who instructed them never to be dependent on a man, did not have a good explanation for this inequality. Sexual discrimination was just starting to be a hot topic in 1988. Here is my ...

  • A True Friend - 1,379 words
    A True Friend A True Friend This can't happen to me!!! It just can't!! I screamed. I ran out of my English class, towards the guidance office, but there they were waiting for me. I quickly did a 180, and dashed out the side door. I ran as fast as I could towards the little woods behind Greenwood High School. I wasn't sure where I was going or when I was going to stop, I just needed some time to think. I found a big apple tree and slumped down on one of its big roots. It was here that I stayed until late at night. Millions of thoughts were going through my head all at once; how could this have happened? She was fine yesterday! I saw her last night! Why did this happen? She was only 16. Tears ...

  • Academic Effects - 950 words
    Academic Effects In the spring of 1997, Lisa Sharon Cushing and Craig H. Kennedy conducted an experiment to study the academic effects of providing peer support in general education classrooms on students without disabilities. In other words, students were paired with other students and their behavior observed. The study was undertaken to better understand the effects of peer support stratigies of participating students. Three non-disabled students were observed and a baseline measure of academic engagement was taken. Each student was paired to be a peer supporter with a disabled student and that level of behavior was observed. The experimental question states: Does serving as a peer support ...

Then she tried to bargain with her friends by saying, "I'll talk to him after Social class, I swear." But still the girls continued to drag her over to this boy. Then came the words I was waiting to hear, "You don't want to be the only one at this dance without a date, only the dorky girls go to the spring dance dateless!" Eventually this girl did end up going over to the boy outside. Another example of peer pressure I observed was within a group of boys. About five or six boys were "daring" one boy to ...

  • Affirmative Action - 3,345 words
    ... Aguilar 1. Affirmative action should be eliminated (Sadler 70). Affirmative action does not solve discrimination problems; on the contrary, it harms those the program is meant help. The program divides society into two groups based on ethnicity; this completely defies the effort to have a color-blind America (where society does not see ethnicity or a color difference in any person). Disguised as an equal opportunity program affirmative action discriminates against non-minorities. Affirmative action has its affects in collegiate admissions and employment, however, remains more controversial in college admissions. Many groups protest the abolishment of affirmative action for sake of higher ...

  • Animal Rights - 1,282 words
    Animal Rights Throughout High School I learned to develop many different types of skills. Development Came a little easier or me when it came to writing. necessarily not only writing was developed but also imagination and feelings. You may ask, "Why Feelings"? Because writing is not only just that "writing" it is opinions, facts, emotions, and feelings that I put into words. Among these I learned also very important skills that are crucial in every writers paper which are Grammar, Vocabulary, and paragraph structure. I believe that if all these are combined and used effectively a perfect essay paper would be in hand. Poetry is another writing skill I learned to develop as I was attending Hig ...

  • Catcher In The Rye - 935 words
    Catcher In The Rye 'The novel has long ignited disapproval, and it was the most frequently banned book in schools between 1966 and 1975. Even before that time, however, the work was a favorite target of sensors. In 1957, Australian Customs seized a shipment of the novels that had been presented as a gift to the government by the U.S. ambassador. The books were later released, but Customs had made its point that the book contained obscene language and actions that were not appropriate behavior for an adolescent. In 1960, a teacher in Tulsa, Oklahoma, was fired for assigning the book to an eleventh-grade English class. The teacher was appealed and was reinstated by the school board, but the bo ...

  • Crucible - 462 words
    Crucible The Crucible; underestimated and underrated By Jon State High Student I must be honest in that I had never heard of the movie The Crucible until a few weeks ago when my English teacher had us watch it for a unit we were currently doing on witchcraft. Figuring it was some teachers educational video, I was not very thrilled. My opinion changed abruptly as the movie began with several mischievous girls sneaking out one dark, eerie night in the 1600s. The setting seemed to put me there with the bright, full moon shinning over the calm lake and the cool, misty air seeming to hang in the air like ghosts. The girls ran, looking nervously over their shoulders as if they were committing a de ...

    Describe A Person Who Has Influenced You Shit Everyone is affected by certain events or individuals that greatly change their life. Many people have influenced me during my life. Three wonderful friends that have had a special effect on me are Robert, Tiffany and Ashley.

  • Electic Kool Aid Acid Test - 630 words
    Electic Kool Aid Acid Test The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. Author: Tom Wolfe. The grounds on which Thomas Wolfe created this documentation of the Merry Pranksters is that he attempts to re-create both the mental and physical atmosphere of their adventure and exploration across America. 4) Specific evidence in supporting the aforementioned thesis can be found in the "Authors Note" section of the book but also in the writing style used to develop this masterpiece. Writing in a basic journal style, Wolfe documented the extraordinary life style lived by the Pranksters through personal experiences with them as well as transcribing their adventures that were captured on both film and tape. 5) Tom ...

  • Ernest Hemingway - 2,166 words
    Ernest Hemingway "Today on the five oclock news a man goes on a rampage at the office leaving five dead." As I flip on the TV, I see another top story! A man has killed others at his workplace and taken his own life. This is becoming very old. I begin to think, "what could push this person to the point where they feel that it is necessary to take the lives of innocent people?" Even more disturbing, what could drive a person to the point that they believe it is necessary to end their own life? What could drive a person to the point of no longer having the desire to live? I believe that being prepared for life and the difficulties that come along with it is part of the key. The world can be a ...

We had to be very specific in our descriptions, such as exactly what we used and then how we used it, etc. In my Spanish class, writing is very important. Not only do we have to know how to speak in Spanish, but we also have to know how to write in Spanish. We have to know how to properly spell things and also know how to punctuate properly in Spanish. We have to use the right process, which can be very different from English. Many things in Spanish are backwards compared to the way we write in English. There are some words that are spelled exactly the same way but mean two totally different things, all because of an ...

  • Growth In Writing - 436 words
    Growth In Writing Emily Gillette DVWR 101.004 Professor Bull September 22,2000 Growth in Writing Writing is one of my favorite things to do. Expressing yourself is so much easier when given time to think about what needs to be said. I would like to believe that I have a very rich writing history. I keep a journal of all my daily events. I also keep a book close by so if I think of any poems I can write them down right away. My favorite piece of writing was a story that I wrote in my first semester English class. The name of the story was Fade. This Semester two of my classes will require me to turn in written assignments. This semester should not be two difficult in terms of how much writing ...

  • Movies And Books - 1,595 words
    Movies And Books Many people compare an English literary work to different movies of their time. An example of this is Pygmalion by Bernard Shaw. A story about a woman transformed into a spectacular beauty pushed into royalty, but never loses her identity, is very similar to a movie directed by Don Bluth called Anastasia. Bernard Shaws play Pygmalion and Don Bluths movie Anastasia, show that one can change a persons appearance, but the person deep within has never left the surface. The two have a large array of similarities and differences. What is also fascinating is that the background of both the English writer and director are very similar in how they began. I will compare both movie wor ...

  • On The Universality Of Poetry - 683 words
    On the Universality of Poetry Like any art form, poetry is considered universal. It ranks with music, dance, and fine arts as a form or process of expressing Man's thoughts and passions. Unlike other art forms, however, poetry -- and in fact literature -- has a peculiar characteristic. As a medium it uses language, and unlike other mediums -- like rocks, paints, beat -- language is not universal, it is cultural. Since culture varies according to geography, time, religion, and gender -- it is without doubt that there are multitudes of different languages. Thus poetry becomes cultural or non-universal in form, a characteristic that confines the production and reception of poetry to people that ...

  • Oscar Wilde - 662 words
    Oscar Wilde Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (1854-1900) was an Anglo-Irish dramatist, novelist, essayist, short-story writer, critic, and poet. He was part of the Decadence, a loosely affiliated coterie of writers and artists of the 1890s whose lives and works manifested a highly stylized, decorative manner, a fascination with morbidity and perversity, and an adherence to the doctrine "art for art's sake." After having a hard childhood, where he was dressed as a girl until the age of nine, he viewed life more critically than others. He often focused in on the upper class, and wrote of their absurdity, superficiality, and snobbery. Yet mainly, he wrote of what he felt at the time and wha ...

This one incident can change a person^s entire outlook on life including their beliefs and practices. There will be many notable events in one^s life, but there will be only few incidents in which one will come to a profound comprehension of his life or life in general. These few incidents are what create adversity in one^s self. The mental unease which comes along with these incidents is not usually long lasting, but embeds a dramatic concept to which one will often refer. A few years ago, I underwent one of these experiences in ...
