  • A New World Not So Far Away - 1,082 words
    A New World Not So Far Away A New World Not So Far Away There are a lot of differences between the American and Chinese culture and values. Aspects such as philosophy, family values, time management, individuality, and religion are just some modern examples of the many differences between these two major industrial countries. However, one does not have to come from China to experience just how different and influential these cultures are. Throughout most of my childhood, I have been predominantly exposed to nothing but the Chinese culture. When my parents first immigrated to the United States from Canton, China, they rented a small apartment located right in the heart of Chinatown. Chinatown ...

  • Adult Illiteracy - 3,413 words
    Adult Illiteracy Learning to read is like learning to drive a car. You take lessons and learn the mechanics and the rules of the road. After a few weeks you have learned how to drive, how to stop, how to shift gears, how to park, and how to signal. You have also learned to stop at a red light and understand road signs. When you are ready, you take a road test, and if you pass, you can drive. Phonics-first works the same way. The child learns the mechanics of reading, and when he's through, he can read. Look and say works differently. The child is taught to read before he has learned the mechanics the sounds of the letters. It is like learning to drive by starting your car and driving ahead. ...

In a future where there is no love, no science, and everyone is equal and of one entity, one man defies the group to be his own person. I owe nothing to my brothers, nor do I gather debts from them.

  • Belly - 1,158 words
    Belly The motion picture Belly explores the ghetto and the characters that live in this dark and obscure world of violence and criminal behavior. Tommy or Bunz, and Sincere, who both live in New York, have differing views of criminal life. Bunz lives a mixed up, drug-run lifestyle, while Sincere aspires to be a law-abiding family man. To help the audience get the full effect of evilness portrayed by the character, the scenes are very dark and gloomy. There are, however, lighter scenes in which the good heart of one man is represented. The lighting in Belly helps with the characterization within the movie. One character is shown as a dark figure, and one as an almost holy figure, plus disillu ...

  • Book Classification - 572 words
    Book Classification When I was a very small child, I fell in love with books of all types. I could lose myself for hours in Alice and Wonderland, Black Beauty, and Tom Sawyer. As I grew older, I started reading books that portrayed actual people. I became interested in books on the Holocaust and read many titles, including the Diary of Anne Frank. These real-world stories and my large imagination started me on a path of story writing. I have written everything from poetry to complete plays. Although I have explored a large range of styles in my writings, I generally focus most of my efforts on three styles: horror, mystery, and science fiction. I have found these subjects allow me to use his ...

  • Education And Egalitarianism In America - 2,350 words
    ... methods of the 1880s and 1890s. The new methods, combined with the physical organization of the school, represented the direct opposite of Pestalozzi's belief that the child's innate powers should be allowed to develop naturally. Rather, the child must be lopped off or stretched to fit the procrustean curriculum. Subjects were graded according to difficulty, assigned to certain years, and taught by a rigid daily timetable. The amount of information that the child had absorbed through drill and memorization was determined by how much could be extracted from him by examinations. Reward or punishment came in the form of grades. At the end of the 19th century the methods of presenting inform ...

  • Edward Gein - 1,709 words
    Edward Gein All through history there have been stories of death and killing. There have been many murders in America. Some killers have had odd practices that they inflict on their victims; however, few have gone to the extent of Edward Gein. Because of his obsession with women and odd practices committed on the bodies of his victims, Edward Gein is considered to be the most bizarre murderer in America's history. Ed Gein was born in La Crosse, Wisconsin on August 21, 1906 (Woods 8). His father later moved the family to Plainfield, Wisconsin (Woods 9). Gein had one brother named Henry (Woods 6).

  • Fahrenheit 451 - 351 words
    Fahrenheit 451 "We don't read and write poetry because it's cute, we read and write poetry because we are members of the human race and the human race is full of passion." Mr. Keating said this to try to get his class to look beyond writing poems because the teacher told them to and because that is what they have done for years. But to write poems that meant something and had passion. In Fahrenheit 451, they use "man's best friend", the dog, against man. I think the author picked the dog rather than another animal because it is known to be man's best friend. The dogs have always been loyal to man and he was trying to make it show how bad things can be. "Two roads diverged in the woods and I, ...

  • Fahrenheit 451 - 764 words
    Fahrenheit 451 John F. Kennedy once said, Conformity is jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth. This quote relates directly to the novel Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury. According to this statement, when a person is told how to live their own lives they often forget to make their own decisions, and they are no longer their own person. Conformity is following all commands and laws regardless of one's own beliefs. In the story, Guy Montag followed the rules set forth by the government, never second-guessing them. He never once thought of what these regulations really meant, or what the effects of his actions were. He never really experienced freedom. This quote expresses the changes that he ...

  • History Of Depression - 1,829 words
    History Of Depression HISTORY OF DEPRESSION: Depressive illness has been known since biblical times. The word depression comes from the Latin word deprimere (to press down). Thus it means feeling pressed down, sad or low. In the late Middle Ages, religious leaders believed depression was caused by posession of evil spirits. The German religious reformer Martin Luther wrote All heaviness of the mind and melancholy comes of the Devil. Through the years depression has been treated with such remedies as whipping, bloodletting, exorcism and soothing baths. By the 1960s, antidepressant medications were discovered that relieved depression by correcting chemical imbalances in the brain and because o ...

    Holocaust What is Holocaust Denial and Why Does it Exhist? What is Holocaust denial and why does it exhist? This is far from being a simple question, as it neccessitates a background knowledge of what the holocaust really was and why there would be efforts to deny that it ever happened. In my paper, I hope to explain some of the horrific aspects of the holocaust and provide ample facts for proof that this terrible ordeal happened, then attempt to understand why holocaust denial came about in the first place. Attempting to prove that the holocaust never happened seems virtually impossible given the known exhistance of concentration camps in Auschwitz, Belzec, Bergen-Belsen, Dachau, and Wester ...

  • Huck Finn - 601 words
    Huck Finn In the book, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Huck rejects sivilized life. He dreads the rules and conformities of society such as religion, school, and anything else that will eventually make him civilized. He feels cramped in his new surroundings at the Widow Douglass house. He would rather be in his old rags and sugar-hogshead because he was free and satisfied. He felt out of place when he tried being sivilized because he grew up fending for himself and to him it felt really lonely. Huck Finn grew up living in the woods and pretty much raised himself because his pap was a drunk. He never had a civilized lifestyle and he believed that his way of living was good enough for him. ...

    I Suppose suppose I believe that I learned to read like I learned to breathe. That it was something that could not be recalled because it was either so embedded in my experience that I had no memory of it, or it was an involuntary reflex of my brain. My mother tells me that she read to me; that I began to learn to read in Miss Grogans Kindergarten class. But I retain no distinct memories of the Bumper Book that my mother has kept all these years on the shelf in the closet of my old bedroom. But somewhere along the way, I developed a love of reading. I became a true bibliophile in third grade when we were assigned Charlottes Web by E.B. White. I still remember Wilburs proclamation of Stupendo ...
