    ... of different cultures. When students are educated in their native language and learn to rely only on it, then they do not blend with the rest of society.

Bilingual education programs may inhibit the reality of this goal. In contrast, Richard Rothstein, author of "Bilingual Education: The Controversy," argues that " teaching in ones native language reinforces on ...

  • Breakdancing - 370 words
    Breakdancing Breakdancing Breakdancing a form of African American dance that emerged from the hip hop culture of the South Bronx, New York, during the mid-1970s. Drawing upon several African American dance forms, break dancing coalesced in the 1970s and reached its peak in popularity during the 1980s. Breakdancing developed out of the Bronx, New York, disco scene. When disco DJs changed records, dancers would fill the resulting musical breaks, or "breakbeats," with movements that emphasized the rupture in rhythmic continuity. These highly acrobatic interludes developed into a new genre that mixed Afrodiasporic dance styles, reflecting the influence of the lindy-hop, the Charleston, the cakew ...

One miner summarized the labors of mining in these terms: "Mining is the hardest work imaginable and an occupation which very much endangers health. A weakly man might about as well go to digging his grave as to dig gold."(Rohrbough, 138). Few forty-niners were prepared for the incredibly hard work. Working fifty pans of dirt in a ten hour day was a reasonable goal. But digging the dirt to fill those pans, sorting it out, and panning for the gold became more work than most gold seekers had anticipated. For a man who could endure hardships, could handle the incredible amount of labor, ...

  • Deaf Culture And Alcoholism - 858 words
    Deaf Culture And Alcoholism Deaf Culture and Alcoholism Abstract Why is it so hard for the deaf to deal with admitting they are alcoholics or drug addicts which is an impediment for recovery? Why is it so hard for them to stay sober once they have achieved it for a few weeks or months? What do you think the main reasons are? Having worked with the deaf for over 30 years I will try to answer these questions and research other aspects of the deaf culture, their mode of communication and alcoholism. Although it may seem that communication is an aspect of every culture, two of the unique features are that there is not always a common language between parents and child, and there is no written fo ...

  • Robinhood - 278 words
    Robinhood Critiquing the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves by Kevin Reynolds, was filmed in two locations: Los Angeles, California and Yorkshire, England. The film location was accurate for the movie. It was shot mostly in England in Sherwood Forest, to give a more authentic effect. The costume designs were accurate, with today technology and designers anything is possible. The make-up was great, making them look just like peasants. The props were just like the ones use during that time period. The facts seem correct with Robin Hood stealing from the rich and giving it to the poor. And it was dated around the right time in the 14th century. I had learned a lot from this Robin Hood, because ...
