  • 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. ...

  • Affirmative Action - 1,727 words
    Affirmative Action Jean Miller #43252 American Heritage 100 7:00 am - 7:50 am M, W, F Brother J. Baker Affirmative Action Affirmative action is a growing argument among our society. It is multifaceted and very often defined vaguely. Some can define affirmative action as the ability to strive for equality and inclusiveness. Others might see it as a quota-based system for different minority groups. Affirmative action was originally designed to help minorities (Gross, 1996). Is affirmative action fair? Are minority groups on equal footing? Is gaining employment for minorities difficult? Is education easily obtained for the minority groups of people? Affirmative action endeavors to answer all th ...

  • Autobiographical Sketch - 537 words
    Autobiographical Sketch I was born on June 7, 1983 to two loving parents in the small town of Warrensburg, New York. I was the second of two children to be born to John and Jacqueline Farndell. In 1981 they were blessed with my brother Jason. The four of us lived in a small apartment in Warrensburg for two years. We then lifted our roots and moved to an even smaller town called Greenwich. This is where I currently live. We live in an old house that my father bought from my great-grandmother. I started school at the age of five. I attended Schuylerville Elementary School, which actually was closer to where we lived than Greenwich Elementary. At the end of my Kindergarten year my stable family ...

  • Bilingual Education - 1,184 words
    Bilingual Education Bilingual Education = Unilingual Education Bilingual education in America is a sound idea, but it is not truly bilingual education, it is only bilingual for those who do not already speak English. America is a country with more and more cultures mixing together with different areas of America speaking different languages. In California, Spanish is the dominant language next to English, and in states such as Maine, French is spoken. Other cultures should not be assimilated into mainstream America completely, but America shouldnt have to bend over backwards to make life easier for foreigners. In order to become more culturally tolerant, everyone should learn a second langua ...

  • Brown Vs The Board Of Education - 1,452 words
    Brown Vs. The Board Of Education Education has long been regarded as a valuable asset for all of America's youth. Yet, when this benefit is denied to a specific group, measures must be taken to protect its educational right. In the 1950's, a courageous group of activists launched a legal attack on segregation in schools. At the head of this attack was NAACP attorney Thurgood Marshall; his legal strategies would contribute greatly to the dissolution of educational segregation. According to U.S. Court Cases the segregation among whites and blacks was a legal law established for almost sixty years in the United States. However, Brown vs. The Board of Education was the turning point in race rela ...

  • C S Lewis - 994 words
    C. S. Lewis C. S. Lewis, a well-known author and apologist, is best known by people of all ages for his seven volume series entitled The Chronicles of Narnia. As Lewis wrote about the land of Narnia, an imaginary world visited by children of this world, he had two obvious purposes: to entertain the readers and to suggest analogies of the Christian faith. Although some feel that his stories are violent, Lewis is successful at using fiction to open peoples hearts to accepting Christ as their Savior because he first entertains the audience with a wonderful story. Lewis talked about how he came to write the books of Narnia, saying that they "all began with a picture of a Faun carrying an umbrell ...

  • Exceptional Education Referral To Placement - 1,056 words
    Exceptional Education Referral To Placement Abstract This paper will reflect upon the school-wide dilemma of students, families and schools involved in the referral and placement process of students with special needs such as specific learning disabilities and beyond. This is a genuine problem in our Florida school system as each year is seems to take longer for a student who has been referred by an educator to be placed into a situation which best meets their academic and/or emotional needs. This paper will concentrate on stories derived from primary stakeholders dealing with this situation. The stakeholders for this particular story are; Diana, a 3rd grade student in need, and her family, ...

  • Girls And Boys - 638 words
    Girls And Boys Girls and Boys For my entire life I have noticed a prejudice between the genders. Constantly I hear guys saying Im so sick of girls!, or girls saying All men are jerks!. I personally dont understand. To me girls are the best people to be around, they always smell good and you dont have to worry about proving who can drink a beer the fastest or who can beat the crap out of who. From the first day of school all the way through High School guys and gals have never gotten along very well, but it does get better with time. This whole abhorrence with each other began in kindergarten, thanks to a little creature called a cootie. Now youve probably never seen a cootie and there is a v ...

  • I Suppose - 1,689 words
    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 ...

  • Influencial Person - 399 words
    Influencial person Be Proud Of Who You Are My grandmother was born at a time when the Japanese had invaded Korea. At those times girls were not considered to be very important and guys were valued. That hasnt changed a whole lot even today. Yet my grandma was an extrodinary women, she was the youngest girl in her family and her mother died when she was only five years old.

  • Introspection - 643 words
    Introspection Introspection is always a difficult process, and even more so when one is still a teenager, struggling to find oneself, but a prominent aspect of my outward personality which keeps floating up in my mind is shyness. I am sitting in my third grade classroom and the bell rings for class to begin. The list of the day's assignments is on the board. I begin Reading, which is first, but also my favorite, and quickly finish. I want to move on, but my teacher has other plans. She begins to discuss the reading and randomly calls on the class for input. I did the work and understood it, but I still hope with every cell in my body that she will not pick me. Silently hunched over, staring ...

  • Movie I Like - 381 words
    Movie I Like I felt that this movie was a very good learning tool. It demonstrated how stupid discrimination looked when the little third graders hated each other for the color of their eyes. It was amazing also to see the way that the children talked about blacks and Native Americans. They were only in third grade and they were using racial slurs to address these people. This shows how are society has changed over the last couple decades. Children now realize that it is wrong to talk about someone in that fashion. It was interesting to see how the third graders reacted when they had a class reunion and watched the film. They all still remembered the lesson that they had learned in the class ...

  • Mozart And The Mind - 1,106 words
    ... nking after hearing some of the positive test reports according to Christopher Chabris, a Harvard neuropsychologist (Weiss D5). After doing a few Braddock 5 interviews with music store owners and from what he believes to be a bunch of false advertisement, Chabris has derived that ['now thousands of people are visiting their local music stores and buying CD and tape series'] (D5). These sometimes cost up to $52.98 and promise to stimulate and inspire the mind (School Library Journal 84). Many other, more modern bands are now taking advantage of the latest Mozart studies, claiming that music will enhance ones mind by listening to it. A band with a more 20th century sound that believes in t ...

  • Part 2 - 821 words
    Part 2 General Review of the Sex Situation We know that the speaker of the poem is Dorothy Parker herself. Knowing that Dorothy is a woman that got the reputation of being hard to please, you can almost assume that it is going to be a very negative poem. As you read the poem you know right away that it is a woman telling us about the "sex situation." The tone she writes in is a very negative one to that of the opposite gender. She does not know that this is the way every man feels. She might have been writing about past experiences in her own love life, and wants to let it all out because her experiences were negative ones. The audience she was writing for was obviously for females, because ...

  • Primates - 1,847 words
    Primates Since the beginning of time, man has evolved through primate evolution. Each primate has acquired different characteristics over a period of millions of years. The ecosystem has experienced an enormous change in this phase. Most major changes have occurred due to the phenomenon of continental drift. Other such factors are deforestation, natural calamities and, more recently, global warming. These changes have caused primates to become less arboreal and more and more terrestrial. In order to survive the pressures of natural selection, terrestrial life and other factors primates have developed more upright locomotion, changes in body configuration, increase in size and loss of hair. O ...
