An Analysis Of Media Coverage Of Ebonics: Incorporating Black English Into The Curriculum - Introduction The debate on Ebonics has virtually left the media spotlight. The proposal by the Oakland School District in early 1997 to use Ebonics to help African-American children learn Standard English met with much opposition.

The media triggered a dialogue among Americans about the appropriateness of Ebonics in the classroom....   [tags: Ebonics, Myths and Realities]

Part of that task of perpetuation—and Abraham Lincoln reminded us that it can be a more difficult task than founding—is creating new citizens.

Milk quenches one’s thirst, whereas blood pours out of a person. Water is used to wash stains away, whereas blood can taint a person. The blood image is very potent throughout Macbeth and reinforces the major themes of bravery, guilt, and violence evoked by the three witches. At the beginning of the play, the bloody captain and Lady Macbeth have very different opinions of what is brave (especially the qualities of bravery that Macbeth either shows or does not show) and both use different images of milk and blood to prove their point....   [tags: Literary Analysis, Shakespeare] 1490 words

Death of the Newspaper: Where Will Journalism Go From Here? - The U.S. newspaper industry is in a time of transition. Ad revenue profits and print readership have been steadily declining for years and things are only continuing to get worse. As readers slowly gravitate towards the internet to fulfill their news needs, more and more newspapers are being forced to close their doors. In spite of this, the spirit of journalism cannot be allowed to die. Media expert Clay Shirky (2009, para. 10) writes that, “There is no general model for newspapers to replace the one the internet just broke.” Shirky’s right, there is no general model because it’s no longer about replacing newspapers; it’s about saving journalism and giving journalists a new media in which...   [tags: Journalism ]

Subjection of Women in Wuthering Heights and A Doll’s House - A Doll’s House, by Henrik Ibsen, and Wuthering Heights, by Emily Brontë, were both published in the nineteenth century, when the campaign for women’s rights was starting to make an appearance. In 1755, Corsica allowed women’s suffrage, until 1769, when it was taken over by France. This started the ball rolling towards universal suffrage for women. This play and story serve as the last remnants of a time in the western world when women had very few, if any, rights. Edvard Beyer, a Norwegian literary critic, commented about ‘new nobility’ under the government that could have resulted partially from works such as A Doll’s House: ‘I am obviously not thinking of a nobility of birth… I am thinking...   [tags: Literature Feminism]

In line 12, the witches say, “Fair is foul and foul is fair.” This is interesting as they are suggesting good and evil as being one.
